Martha - in Maine!
Most recent update: December 2019
Martha is a beautiful pitbull mix who was adopted from our rescue in 2017 but was returned so she could find a home without young children or other pets. She is 4 years old and 47 lbs and is having a blast in her foster home. She is responsive and smart and loves her humans!
Her foster dad wrote a special poem about this sweet girl!
Martha’s been our foster pup for a few months now
And within these few lines we will tell you how
This pit bull mix in our lives she has grown
She walked into our house and made it her own
When Martha's in play mode all else fades away
Whether tugs on a rope or a kong chase today
Intense and excited, with growls of pure joy
There’s nothing that comes between her and her toy.
Upon meeting new people, she soon makes it known
All she wants is their touch or a ball to be thrown
So jazzed is this dog, she gives licks and a kiss
Some think she’s aggressive, but we think that’s amiss
Martha’s demeanor is of wonder and thrill
So happy to be here, It’s hard to sit still
But we havent found in the time she’s been here
Man, woman or child with complaint volunteered.
An issue we’ve worked on, with varied success
Is her meeting with dogs without hints of distress
Though headways been made, more work here’s to do
Each day brings us a new chance, and so it will you.
Encounters with cats are a ton less dramatic
Though we’d like to keep these engagements sporadic
If a cat and this pup could by chance share an abode?
No’s not our answer, but your roll should be slowed.
Martha rides in the car like a tournament pro
Everyday she is ready to jump in and go
She sleeps by our bed, the whole night and then more
She’s ready to take on her world and explore.
This dog is not flawless, though none of us are
You’re a measure of beauty as well as your scars
There’s a home for this dog, we’ll love her til then
We’re sure that’s a matter of not if, but when.
If you have interest in meeting Martha or any of our cuties, please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
