Stogie

Gender: M, Color: Brindle
Weight: 50, Age: 6 yrs
Housebroken? Yes
Leash/Crate Trained? Yes

Stogie is a handsome, terrific Bully who is 6-years-old and weighs about 50 pounds. He's house broken, doesn't bark or chew what he's not supposed to. He gets along great with people and loves kids! He has a hard time being around some dogs so will need to be in a home as an only dog. His lifetime family is heartbroken that they are not able to take him on their next move into a motorhome. Stogie will make a great addition to the right family. He can't wait to meet you!

Zeus

Gender: M, Color: Black & White
Weight: 65, Age: 3 yrs
Housebroken? Yes
Leash/Crate Trained? Yes

This handsome boy is Zeus and he will be 3-years-old on 12/22. He is used to a crate and walks very well on a leash. He weighs about 65 lbs. and has longer legs than many BT's. Zeus has a very nice disposition; he gets along well with other dogs and even cats. He also does well with kids but his size and energy level make him suited for older kids, 8-10 years+. Unfortunately, Zeus has lost most of the vision in one eye but that doesn't slow him down at all. You won't find a sweeter Bully anywhere.

Ziggy

Gender: M, Color: White
Weight: 46, Age: 7 yrs
Housebroken? Yes
Leash/Crate Trained? Yes

Ziggy is a real charmer - he loves to talk and snuggle (if you don’t mind a little snoring!). His owner can no longer be around enough to give Ziggy the time he deserves. Ziggy is very well trained, knows many voice commands, and is a pleasure to walk on a leash. He also loves the water, but spends more time trying to gurgle water as opposed to swimming. He enjoys playing fetch, running alongside a bicycle, and trying to catch popcorn! Ziggy loves people, but must live in a one-dog-household. He has some seasonal allergies, but it's easy to maintain with meds. He's been neutered, micro-chipped, is up-to-date on all vaccinations and has just had a complete blood work up. If you’re looking for an outgoing comical best friend, this is the dog for you!

Cinnamon

Gender: F, Color: Black Tan White
Weight: 50, Age: 10 yrs
Housebroken? Yes
Leash/Crate Trained? Yes

This lovely lady is Cinnamon. She is 10-years-old and weighs 48 pounds. She was used to having puppies all her life and then recently surrendered when her people could no longer feed her. She's calm and mellow in a crate, gets along with all dogs and probably cats. Don't let her age fool you; she's sweet and happy and still has lots of love to give. You'd never know she's had a tough life as she's always wagging her tail. Cinnamon deserves to be with people who will love and care for her during her golden years.

Oz

Gender: M, Color: White
Weight: 70, Age: 7 yrs
Housebroken? Yes
Leash/Crate Trained? Yes

Oz is a handsome 7-year-old gent who weighs about 70 pounds. His person and best friend had to move overseas and travel for his work. He has a funny personality and loves to play in the yard with his peeps. He's housebroken, fine in a crate, and walks well on a leash. Oz is rather particular about the canines he hangs with, so he should probably be an only dog in the family. If you're looking for a best buddy, Oswald is your guy!

Welcome to the MHBTC rescue page! We appreciate your interest in helping a homeless bull terrier find a new home that will meet its needs!  Our dogs have become beloved pets to many families. We do our best to match each dog to the best possible home for it’s individual needs. All of our rescue dogs are spayed or neutered prior to placement and have current vaccinations and are microchipped.

In recent years, we have seen an increase in the number of bull terriers that require our help. The introduction of several “backyard” breeders in the state, pet store puppies and dogs imported from eastern European countries has created a crisis for many dogs. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL BREEDERS IN THE PUEBLO, COLORADO AREA THAT ARE, IN ESSENCE, BACKYARD PUPPY MILLS. These dogs are produced only for monetary gain with little regard for health and temperament and sold to any person willing to pay the asking price. On several occasions, we have received discarded dogs from these breeders when they no longer can produce puppies to pad their wallets.

When looking to purchase a bull terrier puppy, please ask the breeder what accomplishments the parents have made (show dogs, obedience or other working) other than producing puppies. If no dogs in the immediate pedigree (mom, dad, grandma, grandpa) are “accomplished” in any way other than breeding, then you can be assured that these animals are only paying bills for their owners. These breeders will tell you anything they think you want to hear to convince you that they “home raise” and “socialize” their pups. Once their breeding career is over, these dogs will be discarded. Purchasing a puppy from mill breeders such as this only encourage them to continue in their unethical and uncaring ways.

While many people have good intentions when they purchase a bull terrier puppy, some owners are unprepared to provide for the long term needs of this active breed of dog or the home environment may not have been ideal to manage it. Please consider whether or not you are the right home for a bull terrier. Their unique appearance is endearing and because they can be somewhat difficult to find for sale, people often get caught up in the excitement of puppies available for sale without considering where the dog comes from or if their home is ideal to care for it. Click here to learn more about the breed and whether it is the right dog for you.

The MHBTC is dedicated to the protection of the breed. We will do our best to accept into our program any dog that has the majority of the characteristics of the breed. We have very limited resources and regretfully cannot accept dogs that are obvious mix breeds and do not meet the basic look of a purebred bull terrier. 

If you are interested in adopting a rescue dog, please take a few minutes to review our adoption guidelines. If you live outside of the state of Colorado, please pay special attention to our long distance adoption guidelines.

You must fill out an ADOPTION APPLICATION (pdf document - fill out and mail to determine your eligibility to adopt one of our rescue dogs. If you are out-of-state, please also read the LONG DISTANCE ADOPTION GUIDELINES.

Living with a Dog-Aggressive Bully

Many of the rescues we get are good with other dogs, or children, or sometimes, even cats (!). However, we do get dogs that just simply DON’T like other dogs. My Scooter was such a boy.

I got him when he was 10 months old and had been abandoned to life on the streets. He hated cats, and squirrels, and other dogs. The Rescue coordinator explained the limitations – no dog parks, no overnights with friends’ dogs, and never, never any off-lead time in public.
I was so desperate for a Bully that I didn’t care.
He was all the things we love in bullies: silly, energetic, smart (too smart), affectionate, fun-loving. I had no other pets and knew that as long as I had Scooter, he would be my only pet.

WE WENT TO OBEDIENCE CLASS – with a trainer who was patient and caring and got him to the point where he could stand 6 feet away from another dog and ONLY growl and raise his hackles. And he learned to sit and stay and come.

WE WENT TO THE PARK - fairly often, but our route was always dictated by the location of the other dogs there. Steering him away from other dogs gave us random paths and happy time together with no straining on the lead.

WE WENT TO THE GROOMER - by appointment ONLY. A few times, we stood outside the shop and she came out to do his nails. Other times, we scheduled a “Full Monty” visit when the other clients were through, and I would pick him up as soon as he was dry.

We NEVER went to PetsMart or PetCo or any store with dogs roaming around.
We NEVER went to the off-leash dog park.
We NEVER went to the street fairs.
We NEVER got a cat or a bird or another dog.

None of the adaptations we had to make for the public ever interfered with our relationship. He adored my friends, both young and mature, and always treated them like family laps. He loved to help me garden and cook and we were both happy just to be together. I never really missed the forbidden activities, because I had my Bully.

If your circumstances permit, you could find a best friend for life. I did.

A forever home means the dog owner has made the commitment to create a safe and loving home for the dog for the remainder of it’s life. Prior to adopting a dog, do your research and fully understand the breed to confirm it’s the right breed for you and your life style. Dogs that have been put up for adoption require additional patience as they adapt to their new surrounds and build trust that you TOO will not give them up for adoption. Understand it will take time for them to learn their new human “Pack” and how to best fit in and please you. Go into the adoption knowing you will do EVERYTHING within your power to make the relationship work.
