Roman's Story...
Roman is an adult pit/mastiff mix. He is 4-5 years old. He is very friendly with people, and some other dogs. Roman has been with us for a little while now, and has been working on his obedience training which he is doing very well at. Roman will need a home with a lot of structure and exercise. That is the type of environment he will thrive in (discipline, structure, & repetition) He may be able to live with another dog-it will all depend on the home that he goes to. As of now he shares his kennel with a female dog, and they do just fine together. Roman is a goofy dog, with a sense of humor and love. He loves to play and take sun naps, have head scratches, and trying to sit on your lap! He is also learning how to play ball, a concept he hasn't quite grasped yet! Will you be the one to help him learn and be that wonderful companion he is looking for? He will give it all right back to you, that you can be sure of!

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

Roman, a Providence American Pit Bull Terrier/Mastiff dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/Mastiff for sale in Providence, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/Mastiff 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/Mastiff breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Providence paves the way for another one to be saved.
