Hi! My name is Melman and I'm a 60 lb Marshmellow, I mean Pit Bull. I am housebroken, crate trained and know basic commands. Foster mom says I still need to work on my leash manners but it's only because I get so excited to meet new friends.

My favorite thing to do is play with my foster sister and I would love to go to a home with a playful sister of a similar energy level. I also love walks, toys and snuggling. There is a very loud, dramatic cat here and while I am sometimes curious, I mostly try to ignore her. Since I don't always realize how big I am a home with no very small children might be best.

*Note - Melman has recently had knee surgery to repair a torn ligament. His recovery is going very well and he will be ready to go to his new home at the beginning of February.

If you are interested in finding out more about Melman, please fill out an application.

Melman is being fostered in Lunenburg.

The adoption fee is $300.

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

About Broken Tail Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Mission Statement:

Broken Tail Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit foster-based rescue organization dedicated to the rescue of unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats in urgent need. We work closely with local animal controls, animal shelters and rescue groups to ensure the placement of these forgotten animals. We will not discriminate on basis of health, age, or breed and will only consider humane euthanasia in cases of aggression or for quality-of-life due to untreatable medical conditions.

Our animals are vet examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered as needed and receive any and all medical treatment necessary prior to being placed into carefully screened permanent homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our pets for adoption are in foster homes. You must fill out an adoption application before being considered for adoption. Once your application is received, the foster parent will contact you to discuss whether the animal would be a good fit for your home and set up a meet between your family and the pet.

We also house several cats in our adoption center at the Framingham,Cambridge, and Everett PetSmart stores. Stop by to play with them anytime the store is open!

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process includes an adoption application; a meet-and-greet between the prospective adopters, the dog, and the foster family; vet and personal reference checks; and a home visit.

Adopters must be at least 21 years of age.


Our adoption donation is generally between $300 - $400 for most adult dogs and is decided on a case-by-case basis. Adoption donations help defray the cost of transportation, care, and medical treatment.


Our adoption donation for cats and kittens varies by age.

Kitten under 6 months: $200
Cats 6 months – 4 yrs: $125
Cats 5 yrs – 9 yrs: $100
Senior (10+ years) or special needs cats: $75
Exotic and Declawed cats: $150
