    We rescued Indy from a Georgia Shelter about 10 months ago. He was 13 months old with no history. When he first came to us he was scared, but seemed hopeful. He wasn't house broken and didn't even know how to go up and down stairs, but in just a few short weeks we had him housebroke, kennel trained, and running the stairs! He was very easily taught to sit, sit pretty, give both paws, lay, come, and stays with the right motivation. We are still working on stay. He's really a very smart and loving boy! Where the problem comes in for us. He started out mouthy and nippy with us and my older 2 children, but we were able to break that within a ... (Read More)few months. He is now GREAT with my own children! BUT, he is NOT good with other children. He continues to show nervousness and aggression around my children's friends. This is as soon as they walk in or near our home. It's not provoked, I have very respectful children. He has lunged at 4 of my daughters friends, and actually bit 2 of them. They were not badly hurt and both times they were approaching him without an adult around (not good) but the other 2 times I was there to intervene. Thankfully he only left bruising and slightly broke skin, but as you can see our dilemma. I have a 12yo, 7yo, and 1yo. I am going to have children in and out of my house for years to come and he is too much of a risk to them. Lucky for us, there were no repercussion for his biting, but one day there could be and I do NOT want that fate for him! I am not experienced enough to train this out of him, though I think it could be if someone spent a lot of time socializing him. Or maybe he's just not good around children outside his pack. I am not sure. With that being said, we hung on as long as we could because we love him, but he has to be in his kennel when kids are here or separated, muzzled, and watched closely. I worry with kids in my neighborhood just walking by for the chance he could dart out the door, ect. It's not fair to him to have to be locked up every time, or to my children to not have friends over. We don't want to give him up, but I realize at this point we have to. He is super smart and loving to most people. His whole body wags when he is excited!! He came to us a 'lab mix' but he definitely Pit in him (red nose is my guess) and we believe some boxer because of his pouty lip and jumping/boxing mannerisms. He hops like a deer when he plays outside! It's the funniest cutest hop EVER! He really would make a great dog for a young single person or young couple without children who has time and EXPERIENCE to give him what he needs. We will ask for personal and vet references. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Bull Terrier in Maine
    Bull Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Maine if they match your IifestyIe. Bull Terriers are stocky, solid dogs that were once bred to be very fierce but today are much gentler. Bull Terriers are companionable, thrive on attention, and do not like to be left alone for hours or left out of activities. Bull Terriers are spunky and energetic but need to get plenty of brisk exercise or they may become lazy and put on weight. Bull Terriers like children but do not like to be teased. Bull Terriers can be good pets but it is important that they are thoroughly socialized and obedience trained. Bull Terriers sometimes are not good with other household pets and can sometimes be aggressive with other dogs.
