This is a very special girl with a very special story. No one can tell it better than her BFF ACO Charlene: "I'm going to share with you very little. Peach is originally from Canada, where she was used as a breeding dog. She was sold to a family in Rhode Island with a purchaser's right to breed contract. She was also bred in Rhode Island at least once. Peach did not reside in Central Falls and I'm not going to get into how she ended up there. There are many parts to this story but I'm only going to focus on the good part. Peach will not be going back to a life of producing puppies to an already overpopulated world. She was spayed! I learned that Peach was born in November 2012. She has lived with multiple kids, as well as other pit bull type dogs. Peach does get overwhelmed with being near other dogs. It is best for her to be an only pet in the home. As many of you know, Peaches has had episodes of syncope (fainting) at the shelter. Thankfully, she had not had a recent episode. Testing has been inconclusive. I reached out to Heather, of Handsome Dan Rescue. She had Peach stay at her house for a weekend for an in house assessment. Heather loves Peach very much and had wonderful things to say about her. Peach a Handsome Dan's Rescue Take My Lead Dog, which means that she will go home with FREE training with the adopter. I definitely have many to thank when it comes to this story... Central Falls Police Department, City Of Central Falls (Legal), Pawtucket Animal Shelter (where she lives currently) and volunteers for always taking such good care of Peaches, Central Ave Vet Clinic, and from Handsome Dan's Rescue. Now let's all of us work on getting this sweet Peach the best 2nd chance at life ever! ??" To apply for Peach, please go to handsomedansrescue.org and submit an application. That will then be forwarded to Central Falls ACO Charlene to process. For any questions, please contact ACO Charlene directly #401-616-2561 or use this application: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/

Tommy is a fun one-year-old looking for an active adult home. He is a resident of North Attleboro shelter and has recently been added to Handsome Dan's Rescue Shelter Dog Enrichment Program where he has been matched to Rianna! Tommy loves to play, play, play. He loves hanging out with humans and going out to explore. Tommy's friends at his shelter think he will do best as the only pet in the home. Next week, Rianna will start working with Tommy at Outbound Hounds Pit Class. Please email Rianna at Rlramirez513@gmail.com for info. HUGE thanks to the staff and volunteers at North Attleboro shelter who love Tommy very much! To apply to adopt Tommy: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/

Ruru is in our Compassion Hold program. He will live out whatever time he has left with his foster care provider, Steve. Eight month old Ruru has a severe heart condition. His cardiologist tells us it is likely he will not make it to adulthood. We took Ruru into our Compassion Hold (hospice) program from a local shelter and placed him into a home where he will be loved and spoiled for whatever time he has left.

  • Pit Bull Terrier
Hailey is about as sweet and gentle as they come. She was surrendered to a local shelter with two other dogs when her previous owner was moving, lived in the shelter for a few months and was treated for some health issues, until we transferred her into our foster care program here at Handsome Dan's Rescue. Hailey currently lives with another dog, but may do best as the only pet. Other than the normal issues that come with old age, Hailey is a happy and healthy senior. If you may be looking for a mellow friend, please consider Hailey. Adoption donation - $50 To apply to adopt: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/ Thank you for choosing rescue!

Mister was a resident of the Pawtucket Animal Shelter when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. HDR pulled him to the Compassion Hold Program and he's living out the rest of his time with his foster mother, Sara. She reports to us that Mister is quite possibly the sweetest, kindest, and the most joyful boy she's ever met. His days are spent napping, snacking, lying in the sunshine, frolicking in the grass, and hanging out with his dog and cat siblings (whom he loves dearly).

If you're searching for sweet, sensitive, and slightly awkward then adoptable Nubbies is your guy. He's gangly, goofy, and gregarious... a real head turner who’s always getting compliments on how gorgeous he is. Just take one look into those soulful, kinda crossed eyes and you too will fall under his spell. But don't worry, he doesn't let all that flattery go to his beautiful blocky head, he's smart enough to know that he’s a work in progress. Always eager to please, he strives at PIT Class to become the best Nubbies he can be. In his spare time, he loves car rides, walks, snacks, and covering his friends (basically every person he meets) with kisses. Nubbies does well on leash walks with other dogs, but should be the only pet. He’s a big, exuberant boy so sturdy older kids or a grown-ups only house, please. Oh yeah. His enthusiasm for life has left Nubbies with painful hips. He takes supplements, is responding well, and in true Nubbies’ fashion, he doesn’t let it keep him down at all. To find out more about the incredible Nubbies, please contact his Enrichment Specialist, Sara, at saracaitlin@gmail.com. You can also contact the North Attleboro Animal Shelter directly at 508. 699.0128.
