Betty is a 6 month old Cane Corso/Mastiff mix puppy. She enjoys exploring and hanging outside. She enjoys her toys and likes to show them off. Her favorite is a soft chuck-it ball. After play time she loves cuddles and give sweet kisses. She'd give full facials if I let her. She just melts into me. Can't get close enough. She's become a little too big to entirely fit in my lap. Lol. She is going to need a home with no kids and no other pets.She comes with FREE Pit Class.Please email Jen with any questions at jenny82405@live.com View full description »

Meet adoptable Winter!! She is a total cuddle bug and LOVES people, but not a fan of other doggos or critters, so she needs to be an only pet! She SO SOFT and will find a way into your lap (and heart). At training class with Outbound Hounds we are focusing on concentrating when there are other dogs around…while she is very smart and knows several commands, she gets distracted when she sees other dogs. She is more motivated by love and affection than by food/treats. She is moderately active, and will stop to ask for some pets and attention during walks ? all this to say, you’ll love her.Written by her Handsome Dan's Rescue Shelter Dog Enrichment Specialist, you can email Randelle at randelle.l.boots@gmail.com with any questions.To apply to adopt Winter: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/ View full description »

Nikko, Mamba, Shenga, and the puppies are all part of the same cruelty case. We suspect that Nikko is the daddy.Nikko is a big brindle guy. He is about eight and simply a goof. You would never guess his age by his personality. We suspect he will get along well with other dogs and all people, he is so gentle even with his size. With all of these guys being Presa / Mastiff mixes they are HUGE. However big you think they are in the photos, I can assure you that they are BIGGER!For questions about Nikko, please contact Jen at jleeramos928@yahoo.com.To apply to adopt: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/Thank you for choosing rescue.

Montana was rescued during the raid on the property of an individual charged with dogfighting.Found as a "house dog" it is suspected that Montana may have lived inside the house, at least for some portion of the time.Montana is a big snuggly lap dog! He loves everyone he meets and is very easy going.Montana will need a dental, which we will be paying for. He needs to gain about ten pounds. The vet said he is otherwise healthy for a senior, despite several old pressure sores and punctures all over his wiggly body.Montana is part of our Take My Lead program meaning he goes home with a grant for FREE private training and if adopted near Providence, free group classes too!While Montana had a rough life, he is now excited to learn what it's like to be a loved pet.

Meet Taffy! This beautiful 1.5 year old lab mix will steal your heart.Taffy loves everything and everyone one. She loves going for walks, hanging out in the yard, snuggling with humans, playing with her squeaky toys and napping. She loves cats, dogs and everyone she meets. She loves food (as all labs do) maybe a little too much as she could stand to lose a few pounds. Taffy is a rockstar on leash and in the crate. Taffy would love to find her forever home very soon.To apply to adopt please fill out an application at handsomedansrescue.orgFor questions email her foster mom, Stephanie, at slambertfrench@gmail.com View full description »

  • Pit Bull Terrier

  • Housebroken

Thomas has quite a story to tell!Poor sweet Thomas was found as a stray with lots of horrible wounds. The kind folks at Pawtucket Shelter helped him to recover, and though we speculate the wounds were dog bites, we can't be sure. Thomas served out his six month state-mandated quarantine at the shelter. Our volunteers visited with Thomas, reading to him or training with him from outside of his kennel run.Thomas completed his quarantine and has been spending time in foster care with me, Heather. I am a dog trainer and behavior consultant. Thomas and I have been working hard to get him ready (or as ready as he will ever be) for adoption.Thomas is very fearful. He is still learning that he no longer needs to be afraid. No one and/or nothing will hurt him ever again! Thomas will likely always be a fearful dog. He will need a very patient person to help him feel safe. His adopter will need to understand that he will progress at his own rate and that his progress may be slow.The transition into an adoptive home will be tough for Thomas, especially at first. We will likely need to do a slow transition to help him feel as comfortable as we can.Thomas is an absolute doll. He is wonderful, sweet, and adorable.To apply for Thomas please go to https://pawtucketanimalshelter.com/adoption-applicationThank you for choosing rescue. View full description »
