Big Mamma's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Big Mamma's Story...
Big Mamma is a 4-5 year old female pit mix, she is 55lbs and in great shape. She was tied to a tree for 2 years and was impregnated and 2 weeks after I rescued her she gave birth to 6 healthy female puppies. She is INCREDIBLE with all humans young and old, my 2 youngest children, both under 8, have been with her and her puppies since birth and there has never been any issues. Big Mamma gets along with other dogs but is not big on playing, dog parks are not her thing. She goes for daily walks totaling about 4 miles a day, is crate trained and believed to be housebroken. She is UTD on all of her shots. She will be spayed shortly as soon as she is allowed. Big Mamma would do great for an older owner since she is great at settling down.

All of the dogs on our property are dogs that we have rescued. They were all scheduled to be killed. They all came to us with a bite history, among other issues. With our intense board and train program, we are able rehabilitate these dogs. After being in our training system they are now all up for adoption. Please keep in mind this does not mean the dogs are "fixed" or "perfect". They are dogs, and dogs make mistakes daily. We have a training and lifestyle program in place that these dogs excel in, and we look for new owners that will implement that type of program in the dog's new home. If you are looking for a dog to cuddle and pet or give material rewards to, but never correct the bad behavior, we are not the rescue for you. None of these dogs are in danger of being killed, all of the dogs live quite well on our property and we are very particular were the dogs go to ensure a successful adoption for the life of the dog.

We believe in balanced training and when you first bring any of our dogs home you should put them in a very rigid, structured program in order to make sure they understand they are living with rules and consequences. As a professional dog trainer and rehabilitator, I know why dogs are surrendered, so I understand where families are failing. First, structure and exercise is the most important thing to start that relationship off on the right foot. This includes structured walks. Secondly, calming skills such as the place command and long down-stays are important thing for you to work on. They teach them how to be calm in the face of your daily life, which can seem chaotic to dogs. Third, crating the dog upon bringing it home is also important. We suggest doing so for at least the first 3-6 months. We cannot stress enough that you should crate your dog at night and when you are not around. It is important to have a dog in a crate until you know everything about that dog. Many dogs get surrendered each year because of soiling in the house or destroying things when the owner is not around. A simple inexpensive crate can eliminate all of these problems and help to ensure a successful adoption.

With steps like these we can ensure successful life-long placement for our dogs which is our goal. This is what is ultimately best for the dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Providence 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 Providence 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 American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Providence paves the way for another one to be saved.
