  Misty, 3-4 Years Female Shih Tzu  Mix

Available On: 8/30/14

Apply To Adopt

Misty, 3-4 years Female Shih Tzu who needs some TLC due to a repairing broken jaw. Misty was pulled from a high volume kill shelter just in time. This adorable sweetheart has gone through a lot in her young life. She had severe hair loss due to fleas and also had a cracked jaw. Thankfully Misty has been in a loving foster home where she has progressed, healed and come into her own quickly. Her mouth is still sore so we're going to wait until her jaw is completely healed before sending her to her special adopter. Meanwhile we need to raise funds to pay for her surgery. It could run from $500 to $1600. Despite her ordeal, Misty is very playful and friendly with people, dogs and cats. True to the breed, Misty is a companion dog and wants nothing more than to quietly be near to her person, but not in a clingy sort of way. She is not the dog to be companion to another dog as she much prefers to be near her person and she doesn't need other dogs or small children bumping her face. She is extremely loving and affectionate. She also has bursts of comic playfulness. She has a great appetite and has been on a soft diet. Her diet is helping her hair loss and her regal flowing coat is beginning to thicken and shine. She is house trained, crate trained and excellent on leash. Misty is waiting to be someone’s cherished love.

Available On: 9/13/14

Apply To Adopt

Woody is very sweet boy. He is around 3 years old and is originally from St Thomas. He is a bit under weight at 26 lbs. We have him on our high quality food and he will fatten up in no time. Woody is so quiet and loves watching all the other dogs, but he also plays well with all the dogs at the shelter. He adores people so we would love to find a home where people are around some during the day. We think it will help to fatten him up if he has a lot of small meals during the day. He is being neutered next week but will be available at our Meet and Greets this weekend. Come and fall in love with this amazingly wonderful dog!

Apply To Adopt

Bear is a gorgeous 45 lb. Black Lab. He is 8 mo. old and a real sweetheart. He was found at the shelter and our volunteers could not resist his wonderful laid back personality. Bear is still a big baby and wants to play with all the other dogs. He doesn't understand why the smaller dogs don't want to play with him. Bear loves the water so would love to find a family with a pool for him or near the water. He is not cat tested and will still need some help learning the crate. He walks on a leash so could accompany you on trail walks! And he rides in the car. Bear will make a great addition to an active family!

Rosco is from St Thomas and is a 1 year old lab mix. He has a big smile and very expressive ears. He loves to run crazy around our shelter yard and looks just like a whippet doing it. Just try to keep up ! He is only 30 lbs and very sleek with his beautiful black coat. We have no children or cat experience for him so we are looking for a home with kids older than 10 and hopefully a fenced yard to allow this burst of power to continue! He loves to play fetch withthe tennis ball too. He will be neutered next week but is anxious to meet potential adopters this weekend at our Meet & Greets.

Jada
Jada   Jada
Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

Jada needs a great home! She has lots of puppy behaviors and just needs some training. We've had other dogs just like her and training would take her far. Won't you be the one to rescue her and let her blossom in your home? We think an adult home would be best as she plays too rough with kids. She loves other dogs and another big dog would give her enough exercise to redirect her mouthiness on people, preferably a male dog as opposite pairs work best. She's so cute and is not that big. One ear is up and the other is down, depending on what day of the week it is. She is already spayed and ready to go. Jada says: I LOVE the water. I would be happy with a doggy pool. A beautiful gem from St. Thomas, Jada was scheduled to be euthanized, but several shelters and rescue groups worked together to get her here. She's so friendly and engaging! She's so happy to be with people that she has the biggest smile when you talk to her. She's also very dog friendly. She is not good with cats though. She will play in a kiddie pool for hours doing dog paddle and rolling around to cool off. It would be great if her new home vacationed near water or had a pool! Jada is in a foster home so only available by private appointment.

Fritzy
Fritzy   Fritzy
Click on picture to enlarge

Available On: 8/16/14

Apply To Adopt

Fritzy is a 2 year old neutered Yorkie Schnauzer mix who needs a holistic-minded adopter. He had a reaction to his rabies vaccine so can never be vaccinated again. He is up to date on vaccines and doesn't need anything from hence forth. He is a nice dog. He loves to be outside, go for walks and walks well on a leash. He is currently learning to heel on the leash and does fairly well except when he is excited about seeing other dogs or people. He will match your activity level. If you are quiet and calm and just hanging out around your house, he will lay down in his bed or on a chair. If you are an active family, he would love to run around and be with you as well. He loves children and is very good with them. He will occasionally jump up on them when excited, but has interacted well with school aged children and younger. He is shy with other dogs, but has shown no signs of aggression toward other dogs or people. He ignores his fosters cat. He doesn’t bark too much, but does bark some when he hears people outside. He sleeps in bed with his human at night and does not make noise or get out of the bed at all during the night. He likes to snuggle up with you at night. He doesn’t like to be left alone. He will bark, scratch and chew at things that he can get access to when left alone. He also would need to be watched closely by the door as he likes to run outside. His foster mom has tried to have him sit and wait before he goes outside. He does fairly well with this but needs to be kept on leash. He also likes to follow you everywhere you go (I think to make sure that you are not leaving him). He rides okay in the car with some form of restraint, although he does whine some when he rides for a while in the car. He likes to look out the car window. He had a bath while he was here and although he didn't like it very much he allowed me to wash and dry him. He also tolerated being clipped with electric clippers. He needs a stay-at-home who will train him that leaving him for short periods is not the worst thing in the world. He would do best with some structure from day 1. Yorkie experience would be ideal. PRIVATE APPOINTMENTS ONLY. We welcome donations to help pay for his hospital expenses from the vaccine reaction. Thank you!

Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

Kensie is a 1.5 year old Boxer/Bully mix who loves life. She loves to play, loves her kiddy pool (stays out of the big pool), and loves to go for long hikes. At the end of the day she loves to curl up with you or on your feet. She likes to meet people. She is not generally a barker. The mailman comes and she does not bark at him. Kind of amazing since the other resident dog barks. Kensie loves to carry her toys around the house and enjoys getting a toy out of the doggie toy bin. She loves to play ball - either with herself or her family. She plays well with other dogs and is tireless. She enjoys Kongs with crunchy treats and has a good time bouncing the Kong to get the treats out. She will let you take a chewy/bully stick/antler away from her even when she has been chewing it. She loves her food. She is very gentle when you give her treats. She needs an active family to keep up with her. A fenced in yard and work from home or doggy daycare would be great. KENSIE WILL NOT BE AT OUR MEET & GREETS. WE ARE HAPPY TO ARRANGE A PRIVATE APPOINTMENT.

  MISSING A BIRD?, Young Female Cockatiel
MISSING

Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

This friendly Cockatiel was found on 8/28 and although very tired, she seems to be at a normal weight so we are hoping her owners are looking for her. She was found in Wayland but could have flown in from any of the surrounding towns. She's friendly and affectionate and her owners must be frantically looking for her. She is no stranger to the fresh food diet and she knows toys too so was definitely well cared for. Please be her owner. Email adoptions@saveadog.org and send us pictures of your missing bird so we can make the correct identification.

Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

Buddy is a 15 month old beautiful male Australian Shepherd mix who is neutered and house trained and has already been through complete obedience training -- he knows his commands well. He is a VERY smart dog who lost his home through no fault of his own. As a herding breed, the ideal home would be suburban or rural for him and a fenced in yard. He's not a dog for the soccer games, but he loves nice walks or romps in the fields and woods. He needs daily exercise and fresh air. He will do best with experienced dog owner who has some dog behavior knowledge. He would do best in a home where someone is home most or part of the day as he prefers to be with his people. He would co-exist happily with another female dog or as an only dog. We suspect he would chase cats as he does chipmunks! Exercise is a must as he's young. A fenced in yard (not electric) would be the best environment for him. Buddy is in a foster home so only available by appointment.

Laurel is a beautiful Belgian Malinois who is a sweetheart of a dog. She is friendly and loves everyone! She's good with dogs, cats, and people. She looks big in the picture but she's actually petite. From her foster: She plays really well with our dog (pictured here). She eats well. She loves to just hang out with us. She is 100% housebroken. She is quiet all night and never the first to wake. She is quiet and easy, a pleasure!! She loves to play with toys and would love another dog or teens in her forever family. She will retrieve the ball for as long as your arm holds up! Laurel is receiving ozone therapy, supplements, and homeopathic remedies as her blood work showed some kidney damage. She is also will need to stay on the kidney diet she is presently on. She doesn't act sick at all now, but when we first got her she was in rough shape. Any adopter would need to accept that life holds no guarantees and that she could live a full life or not. This is true with any dog and Laurel is no exception. Laurel is in a foster home so she is available by private appointment only.

Coco is a 4 year old Heinz 57 (mixture of many breeds). She is very healthy and would make a wonderful pet for anyone without little dogs in the home. She was found on the street in Mexico during a visit with family 3 years ago; she was starving and dragging her rear paws behind her. The family took her home and nursed her back to health and have had her since. Unfortunately, the family's chihuahua's are not getting along with her and she has had it with them too, though she got along just fine with many other dogs she has been around, including a beagle mix that they had for 12 years. She has a wheel chair that she can use, and gets along just fine walking and running without it on grass or smooth surfaces. She has full control of her bowels/bladder and is fully housebroken. Please apply online as she is not at the shelter.

Minnie

Click on picture to enlarge

Adoption Pending

Minnie is a beautiful 35 lb. 2 yr. old lab/cattle dog mix. Minnie was dumped at a popular outdoor recreation area to fend for herself. A college student saw her hanging out for a couple of days and picked her up and took her to the vet where Save A Dog volunteers found her. Minnie is a real sweetheart. She is very gentle and loving in every way. Minnie is confused by her situation and is desperately wanting the love and attention of a famlily. She is not cat tested though. The college student said she took right to being in his apartment, slept on the couch and was housebroken. We think she likely has had a home most of her life so really wants those comforts back!

Adoption Pending

Velvet is a darling little six year old Chihuahua who just lost her home. She is very frightened as a new arrival. She lived with a retiree and was very happy in her home until kids rushed at her with open hands. She nipped in defense and the parents of the children made an issue of it so that her owners were forced to give her up or be evicted. So this little girl sits frightened in a shelter through no fault of her own. She is a sweet little dog who is totally house trained, is not destructive, and just wants someone to love her. She is very confused right now and who can blame her. One day she's enjoying all the comforts of home and the next day she's in a shelter. We think it's best if she goes to an adult home without children and where she enjoys being the only dog. She walks beautifully on leash and is used to apartment living. If you just give her a chance, she will be your best friend forever.

Pickles is a 4-5 mo. old male, 25 lb. Australian Shepard mix. He was found at the shelter where he had been for 2 weeks. Our volunteer saw him the first time and he was not available for release yet. Two weeks later she went back and Pickles was still there waiting to be adopted. Knowing Pickles would get a great home in the NE she rescued him from the shelter. Pickles is a very good boy. He loves all the other dogs and all the volunteers. He loves to run and play as much as possible so a fenced yard would be lovely. Pickles does not like to share his food or treats and behaves himself best when fed alone. He is not cat tested.
