He does not like to be away from his people for long periods of times. He enjoys going for walks but he can be a little stronger than most because of how big he is. Here is what we know about Beau:

Has $300 sponsorship. This big gentle hunk of love has a lot to offer a good person. He is a great dog with a lot of love to give but he must trust you; you must earn his respect thus love. Bite history: on leash with bone in mouth and someone went to pet his ear and he bit them. You have to ease into a friendship but once you are accepted, you are his buddy. He is reserved and guarded with strangers AND does not get along with other dogs; at least that is our experience so far. When we ready him for a walk he bounces around like a puppy, licking your face while bumping up against you. He is a strong dog and pulls a little too much on a leash. He loves us, his caretakers. So we know he could do the same with someone else. Other than his not particularly liking other dogs, we all wonder why he is still in a rescue. Isn’t it true that we humans do not like some humans as much as others?
Duke is a hunk of a dog on tiny legs, a low rider. He is very easy to walk , loves his walks and has a lot of character. He does not like other dogs and can be dog aggressive. He should be an only dog for sure. The volunteers say he is comical, happy and a low rider. Duke loves his walks but needs to learn not to pulls so much on the leash. His tail is always wagging. He is very gentle taking treats and has a lot of youthfulness about him.
This ridiculously cute guy is definitely unique looking and is such a sweet boy! We don't know for sure what his mix is, but we are guessing Shar Pei mixed with perhaps some lab. He is around 5 years young and is a nice medium size at around 40 pounds. He does best in a calm environment and he is very gentle once he warms up to you. He does very well walking on a leash and likes to be close to his person. He is attentive, eager to learn, and does well in a home. Michael is a very smart boy and already knows some basic commands. Michael would do best with an experienced owner as he can be protective of his family. Michael has been around other dogs but we would recommend careful introductions when meeting any dog and ideally be the only dog in the home.
Meet our boy, Buck! Buck is a handsome and sociable guy looking for a loving home. He has a beautiful and shiny black coat with a handsome white splash on his chest. He will turn heads! Buck is full of energy and the joy of life. While his life may not have always been a good one, he has not given up his love of life and his quest for a great new home. He is quickly becoming a volunteer and staff favorite. Buck is very smart and eager to please. He catches on quickly and willingly. He loves to play out in the exercise pens running after and fetching tennis balls. He would love to have other toys and learn some tricks and games. He is also happy to find a shady spot with some nice cool grass and just sit and get some loving. Adoptions are opening back up on May first, and this guy would love to meet you and show you what a great companion he would be. Please contact Joyce to arrange a meet and greet.
Tootsie is very friendly and affectionate with all adults. We have never seen her around children. She is very strong and muscular. As much as she loves people, she absolutely HATES other dogs. We cannot even keep another dog in the kennel next to her without her constantly trying to attack it. If she could be an only dog, she would be the most loving loyal pup, but she cannot interact with other dogs of any size or sex.
King Arthur Breed: Pitbull terrier mix Age: 5 yrs Gender: M, neutered Wgt/Hgt: 47 lbs / 26 inches tall Energy level: Average. Medium-high (when playing) Relations: Good with dogs after intro, teens, kids/ Not so good with cats Highlights: sweet, smoochy, good walking on leash, rides well in car, loves to play ball and go for walks, house trained Region: Mexico
Knights, assembled! Honoring my name, and as the truthful king of smoochies, I’m looking for honorable folks to spend the rest of my life with. If you’re up for becoming a part of the Pittie round table, I’m your perfect match!
I am a sweet boy who is super handsome, calm and well-adjusted to being around people.
I was found on the streets of Mexico wandering around; it seemed as if I hadn’t been abandoned for very long. I almost got ran over by a truck, but my rescuer managed to get me out of the avenue, safe and sound.
My rescuer and her family decided to take me in, so I could be safe. Apparently, my looks could have put me in danger. Sadly, my rescuer’s country isn’t the most pitbull-friendly place.
I must’ve had experience with travelling by car before, because things went perfectly all the way to the vet. The doctor said I had no health issues, and after a few days, I got neutered, vaccinated and dewormed (not my favorite moment, to be honest).
Since then, I’ve been taken care of by my rescuer and the vet’s team, especially by a very sweet 14 year old guy with whom I spend the most time. I can get a little anxious when “my" person leaves and will softly whine. https://youtu.be/939J5WPyZe4.
I don’t care much for crowds though and feel a bit stressed at that time.
My caretakers say that I’m the smoochiest dog ever, a good kiss is all it takes for me to be ever affectionate and just overall happy.
Listening is one of my strongest suits, so you can always count on me for that. I love sausages, so they’d do the trick if you want to train me. I can be a little stubborn at first (I’m a king) but I learn pretty fast, so I’ll pick up the commands after a short time. https://youtu.be/2r8GFznskqo.
I always have a great time exercising, but I know how to walk calmly on a leash and pretty well ignore most everything. https://youtu.be/S5p7IPOBrvQ.
I’m smart, obedient, clean, and house trained. Yea. I like other dog’s company, but I think I will do best as the only one in the house. I sometimes move forward and growl at other dogs when they get too close. With a couple meetings, I usually become friends. I don’t like sharing my toys with other dogs when playing though. https://youtu.be/IxHbYTo5rj0.
I have been around a couple of young children and it went well. I just think I might be a little strong to hang out with them often, but I definitely get along with teenagers. They’re my favorite!
Not usually many problems with cats, but since I don't like them too close, I can growl when I get stressed, and they can make me a little tense. But you can be sure that my years in this world made me a true gentleman, emphasis on the gentle part!
I don’t know why, but recently I’ve started to bark at many things while in my crate. I'm typically not much of a barker. I just want to be part of a family, where I can hang out with you.
I enjoy any kinds of activity with my human knight, whether it be relaxing after a long day, or racing together in the morning. My energy level depends on what I’m doing, so I can be pretty relaxed while watching a movie or pretty energetic while playing ball (I love it!).
I’m a very adaptable guy. A back yard with a tall fence (since I know how to jump quite high when playing ball– yes, I am quite athletic) would be nice, but I also like going out for walks to enjoy the air and the view. I look forward to starting a new life in Canada and will be sure to bring lots of love and fun to my new home!
I have been neutered and vaccinated.
My adoption fee is $500.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.

Looking for something to add some excitement to the cold dreary weather we have been having? Well, we have just the thing! This is Diesel, a big goofy, happy go lucky boy filled with the joy of life. He has a constant grin on his face and is always ready for some silly games. He is full of energy, full of puppy fun and ready for his new best buddy to come take him home. He is looking for someone who will take him running or jogging, or a rousing game in a big fenced in yard. He needs lots of exercise. Remember Marmaduke, the cartoon? This is him! After exercise, he would also be happy to go inside and flop on the couch for a bit of loving and napping. We feel he could be a great lap dog.
While being in a pound is difficult for him, he still tries to keep his run clean and since he is only able to go outside for a few minutes everyday, he is understandably excited when his turn comes and tends to pull. He is strong, no doubt about it but is willing and anxious to learn the rules. He already knows to sit when asked, and takes treats gently. Then he romps and runs some more. We have videos we can send you and we guarantee you, you will not be able to stop laughing at his antics. He is the happiest dog we have met in quite a while. Please come visit him..it will make your day...and maybe your whole year. He will do his best to win you over! â âContact Joyce today @ email@example.com or 757-376-8360!
Hi, My name is GP! Like Geeee, isn't she PPPPPretty!!! I am a sweet and pretty little girl, at least that is what the nice people here at the pound tell me. And I believe them. I was adopted from here a while back but my people could no longer care for me, so here I am back again. It's not too bad and the volunteers here sweet talk to me and take me on walks. I love visiting the other dogs on walks, and love the attention I get . Everyone says I will make some lucky family a great family member. I am likely housebroken, but will likely need a bit of a refresher. But I am smart and happy to learn so it won't be hard. I would love a nice yard to play in and get to know and bond with my new peeps! Could that be you? Please take a ride to Gloucester to meet me soon. I am worth the trip and will cover you with wiggles and kisses! Bye for now! â âContact Joyce today @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-376-8360!
This fine young man is Belroi (bell roy). He came to the animal control pound as a stray and no one came looking for him. While he hasn't always had a good life, he doesn't let that get him down. He always has a smile on his face and is ready for your attention, whether it be a quiet snuggle or a brisk walk. He is learning to walk calmly on a leash using a gentle leader and is improving everyday. He is so proud of himself and gladly takes the treats offered to him. He appears to be at least partially housebroken as he does his biz the minute he goes out the door. He may need a refresher course. He loves to ride in the car and his people are his most favorite thing. He will make someone a loving and devoted companion and would love to be an only furry child. He would love to have a fenced in yard for a rousing game of fetch, then maybe a nap by the fire. Please come see him, he is such a sweet dog and deserves a home and family all his very own. â âContact Joyce today @ email@example.com or 757-376-8360!
This big bundle of love is Burton. Burton came in showing signs of having had a difficult life. But here his life is changing, for the better. Now this sweet lug of a boy understands that meals come regularly, that walking on a leash can be a good time to do your biz, and most of all, he has friends who show him love everyday. He now has a big squishy ball that is constantly in his mouth. He just loves his toys, and has them with him all the time. He also enjoys his soft bed and is looking forward to the day when he can be the beloved companion of his very own people. He is a big boy, and strong, but also full of love and desire to please. He would love a family of his own, experienced with his breed, one that can help him to be the very best he can be. He is eager to please and will make a devoted friend. His New Years resolution is to be your very own lap dog. Yes...he is a lap dog in training, all the while chomping on his squishy green ball. Please come meet Burton...you will be glad you did! Please call Joyce today for a meet and greet. â âContact Joyce today @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-376-8360!
This is sweet Lola, an older girl of about 6 or 7. She is now bunking at the Gloucester Mathews Humane Society in Gloucester. She has been here a while and is looking for her very own home. Having been at the shelter for so long, and the pound before that, she would really like a home of her very own where she could get all the love and attention. She loves people, and wiggles with delight when you go to her run to visit. She would prefer someone who is familiar with the breed as she sometimes doesn't understand if you try to take her food away from her. She would love to be the best girl and wants to be your best buddy. If you think you can help her, please contact Amanda at the humane society. She is a sweet girl deserving of a good home. She is adorable.... â âContact Joyce today @ email@example.com or 757-376-8360!
This sweet boy is Tide! Tide is the perfect example of the Bigger they are, the Sweeter they are. Tide is four years young, just the right age to be lots of fun but without all the puppy drama. Tide came in with another dog and is now looking for a new home. Staying in such a confined space as the pound for so long has caused Tide to be a bit particular when dogs go by his run. Since he did well with other dogs in his previous family, we feel he will settle down with the right calm doggy siblings. Of course, he would love to have a new family where he is the only furry child as he loves attention, takes treats gently and loves to go for long walks or play with his people in a fenced in yard. He would love to be your outside walking buddy and then crash on the couch for a bit of TV or reading. Or maybe a nice nap in the sunbeam.... A nice puffy bed of his own would be acceptable too!
Tide is very excited when it is time to go out and he may be housebroken. He loves his new halter and gentle leader which makes it easier to walk him. Tide is looking for someone who is a BIG dog person, who can handle his strength and who will give him the love and attention he needs. He is such a love bug that you will fall in love with him immediately. Are you a lover of BIG dogs? This 80 pound baby is waiting for you....please call Joyce and set up a meet and greet! You will be glad you did! He is a great find! â âContact Joyce today @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-376-8360!
Pinky (spayed and utd on shots, all negative test results) Pinky was found as a stray and brought to PAC so we don’t know anything about her past. She is a pit that is about 1.5 years old. After she came in she was treated for demodectic mange but her fur has grown back nicely and she is doing awesome! She is a great girl. Pinky is still young and spunky and can be a little high energy at times and would probably do best in an active household. Pinky can be a little picky about the dogs she likes but she is just so sweet and loves attention and being around people.
