Onyx's Story...
Onyx was the runt of a litter of purebred pitt bull terrier puppies. His owners felt it was ok to feed him cows milk while he was being weaned and he wasn't doing very well at all so they gave him away to a foster mom for the rescue so she could give him some much needed attention. After straightening out his diet and giving him good puppy chow he's flourished and is playing and having a grand time. He loves other pets and kids. Onyx was 9 weeks old on July 21st and he's just about ready for a home of his own! He will be a medium size dog and we will be double checking to be sure he finds a home that will love him and cherish him for the little sweety that he is. Onyx will have had two sets of puppy shots when he comes to his new home but he is too small to neuter at this age. His new family will receive a 50$ rebate when they have it done at 6 months of age and low cost neuter voucher information will be provided to his family.

Our dogs are mainly fostered in TN at our parent rescues . We have many wonderful dogs looking for homes! All of them are completely vetted and neutered/spayed (if age appropriate) and on heartworm protection. All of them come with complete medical records. Their adoption fee of $425 covers their complete age appropriate vetting and heartworm preventative as well as their transportation to your area.
Our rescue doesn't have an actual shelter building in the Maine area. Due to this it is not possible to meet them prior to their adoption. Our dogs are brought up to their new owners weekly! We have a 14 day no questions asked money back guarantee and the dog can be returned to us if things don't work out. We try hard to get good matches in our homes so that everyone has a happy life together! To date we have placed over a thousand dogs and puppies in loving homes from Tennessee clear up to Canada!
We have many, many, references of happy adopters up in your area that can fill you in on their experience. Just email and we can pass along that information for your convenience.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Onyx, a Portland Pit Bull Terrier puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Portland, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier puppy from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Portland breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
