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

      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.
