Lizzy is a 4 year old Boxer who we learned about because she was living outside and it's getting cold. She gets along great with other dogs and is very affectionate with people. She weighs 45 lbs and is super sweet! She's available 10/18/16.
Hi, My name is Shay and I'm a Terrier, one of the TX scruffies! They think Border or Norwich, possible Cairn, but who cares because I am a great dog. I love people! My tail is a blur I wag it so much. Iím 2 years old and very outgoing and friendly. I like to play but I also like to be a lap dog and give kisses. Norfolk Terriers are called the teddy bears of terriers. Look! I even lie like a bearÖ rug that is. I'm a little over 2 years old and will be available on 10/18/16. I passed the cat test so I can go to a new home with cats!I'm a little over 2 years old and will be available on 10/18/16.
Hi there, My name is Lee and I'm looking for my forever family. I'm four months old and just a baby so I will need someone home most of the day to teach me everything a dog should know. Positive, reward-based training is best for me. I will be available on Saturday, 10/15/16.
I love sunshine, donít you? Can I be YOUR sunshine? My name is Roscoe and I am an adorable Chinese Crested/terrier mix. I think Iím about 1-2 years old. I love to play but then I like to relax and chill afterwards. I enjoy a nice warm bath too. I am a little shy when I first meet you, but once I get to know you I am as sweet and loving as can be. I am a lap dog and I will bury my nose in the crook of your arm to take naps. I love children and all other dogs, and I would really prefer to have a confident little dog friend that I can play with and will help to bring me out of my shell and show me the ropes. I am very interested in cats; although once they show me they mean business, I run away. I am crate trained, but you have to coax me to go in. Iím still learning how to let my people know I need to go out to go potty so I have had a couple of poop accidents in the house - but they are always on a rug near one of the doors. Iím very smart and eager to learn. Do you have room in your life for a cute little scruffy like me?
Spuds is a 1 year old neutered Jack Russell mix. He's a high energy dog that loves to play with toys. He is a sweetheart and loves to give kisses. Good on leash. Weighs 28 lbs. His best friend is Doodles, who is the same size. Spuds didn't pass the cat test, but he sure passed the kid test and is great with tween boys. 10 and up is preferred. He's a great dog. If you're a family, a fence will give him the safest environment with the most exercise. He loves to chase a ball. SPUDS WILL NOT BE AT THE MEET AND GREET TODAY (TUESDAY) BUT PRIVATE APPOINTMENTS CAN BE ARRANGED).
Hey whatís that over there? Is that a park? Are those kids over there? I LOVE kids, older, dog-savvy ones, that is. My name is Winston. I am a happy boy. I love to run, leap and play. I run so fast my foster Mom says, when I hit the slippery floors, I look just like Bambi on ice with my long legs going all over the place. Iím shy at first but I warm up fast. Once I get to know you I am very outgoing. Iím only a year old so I still have a lot to learn and I would definitely like to go to obedience school. I bet I might even like agility or flyball Ė since I am so fast. I like female dogs (male dogs not so much). I would love a female dog playmate and a fenced yard so I can really run when the mood strikes me. Does your family need a walking or a hiking buddy? Then Iím your man. An application is required for me as I will be a popular boy given that I'm non-shedding. I'm available on 10/18/16. No phone calls please!
Tank is a 4 year old long'ish haired Dachshund. He's neutered and weighs 17 lbs. His owner passed away and Tank is now homeless. He is fine with other dogs and friendly. He should be available around 10/18/16.

Are you talkiní to me? Iím all ears! My name is Bones Malone. Kind of a gangsta name for a sweet little guy like me. My foster Mom named me - maybe because I will steal your heart (and any other dogís food- if given the chance.) I LOVE to eat. I will wolf down my dinner and try to steal theirs too. I canít help myself! I was really hungry for a very long time. I am putting on weight now Ö see how handsome I am? Iím not mean but I will stand my ground. Iím actually very shy at first but I will warm right up once I get to know you. I would do best with another self assured dog friend that I can run and play with as I am very playful pup Ė Iím only about a year old. Another confident dog would really help me to be more outgoing and carefree. I follow my foster sister Rizzo everywhere. I am really just a puppy. I need someone to teach me. Iím a very good listener (just look at my ears!). I'm available 10/18/16 so get your application in today!
Adonis is a shy 2 year neutered male Lab mix who tends to bond with one or two people in the home so we're looking for a quiet home for him. He's afraid of men, so an all female house is what he needs. He came to us from St. Thomas, hence he considered as a "Coconut Retriever". He is a handsome lad who needs to find his forever home with the right adopter as he can take some time to get accustomed to new people. He's not a dog for a busy household as he wants his own people and does not warm up quickly to strangers. For his family, he is at ease and loyal and can be a lot of fun. He LOVES the water. Give him a chance to splash around in a lake and he will take it, but be warned you will get wet! He is very polite meeting other dogs of all sizes. He loves the beach and that's his element. He is in his glory when at the beach or lake. He loves the car and will jump in (and out!!). He recently mastered the ďsitĒ command and he will amuse himself with squeaky toys.
He will chase a Frisbee, sticks and sometimes a ball and is working on bringing them back. A fenced in yard is necessary to keep him safe and give him access to the outdoors where he shows his zest for life. A dog friend would be great!. We know Adonis well and we welcome the opportunity to guide the special person who adopts him. You wonít be disappointed as he will be your forever friend for life.
Adonis is available to meet and will be shown by private appointment. Update: Adonis had been exposed to heart worm, which developed unbeknownst to his foster family so he's being treated with the "slow kill / safer" method, which adopter can keep up and he can exercise normally.

Molly is a beautiful Border Collie / Great Pyrenees mix with the most soulful gorgeous brown eyes! Molly was adopted to a family last year and recently returned. Molly's family says she is super affectionate and easy going but they weren't able to fence their back yard and having to meet dogs on leash became a frustration to her. Molly is good with cats but she would prefer to be an only dog. She will need some gentle dog introductions if you plan on leash walking, although she has gone on walks with a male dog and has done fine. She is at a boarding kennel now and is friendly when meeting other dogs, not even so much as a growl. All in all, she's an awesome dog who loves her people. She is a quiet dog and loves to sit outside in her back yard, much like the Pyrenees. Inside she wants to hang out with her people. She has such a big heart and is hoping to find her forever home soon! Please apply at saveadog.org/applytoadopt.asp and come meet this wonderful dog!
Imagine a big old Lab who minds his manners and explores the yard during the day sits by your feet at night? Teddy is the perfect dog. He's a purebred Lab who recently turned 9 years old. He is a sweet dog who wants to please his people. He likes to wade in the pond and is fascinated with frogs. He will trot after his foster dad when the lawn is being mowed to see if any little critters scatter along the way. He likes to chase after a mouse or a bunny, but never catches them. Teddy will be best in a home without cats as he wants to chase them.
He's a happy boy who is content to sleep by your feet when you're watching TV or follow you around while you do your chores. Teddy is house-trained and has good manners. He has had some separation anxiety, but it hasn't been much of an issue with his current foster providers who are retired. He can be alone while you run errands, but not all day. Do you have room in your home and heart for him? He is fine with visiting grandchildren, but will run away from toddlers if they are too fast. Please apply online so we can arrange for you to meet him.Teddy is being fostered up in NH but will come down once he receives your application. No cats!
Diamond is a very smart ACD heeler. She is 2 years old, weighs 35 lbs. and is already spayed. She is 4DX heart worm and tick disease negative, and is house trained. She does however fixate very quickly on ďher personĒ and wants to be close to who ever that is. We recommend her as an only dog. She really would love a job. We're thinking a single adopter might be best but we will figure it out once she's been here for a while.
Here's a slide show out of her pictures for you to see her: https://youtu.be/iloSMX0971s
JJ is not a Lab but people overlook her as a perfect family addition because they just don't know how fantastic this breed is as a pet! JJ is a sweet cuddly girl that loves toys and is ready to play at any time. She is house trained and leash trained. JJ gets along fantastic with kids, cats, and other dogs! She is sweet and gentle even when she plays. JJ is such a fast learner. She still likes to gather shoes or personal items but we are tempting her with lots of toys instead. Her favorite past time is spending time with the grandkids. JJ loves to snuggle too. You have to watch her video:
She's very acclimated to a home and respectful of cats.
She's available 10/18/16
Our good friend and co-rescuer Judy who ran New England Saint Bernard Rescue for 30 years, passed away recently and her two Saint Bernards now need a home together. Please share with anyone you know that happens to have room in their heart and home for Mitzi and Buttermilk. They are adults. BUTTERMILK IS A MALE. Buttermilk is 6 years old and Mitzi is 9.
Juanita is an adorable 2 year old Dachshund mix (they say Chihuahua) who is very sweet. She ended up in a bad situation so had to be rescued. Juanita loves people and small dogs, but is afraid of larger dogs. She is available to be seen as of 10/11/16. Pictures don't do her justice. We'll have better ones soon.
Hi! My name is Princess. I am about 3 yrs old. I love to hug and cuddle with my people as much as possible. Iím very laid back. Like every poodle I am very smart and already know some commands. Iím housebroken and will go in my crate when you ask but please donít shut the crate door it makes me sad and I will cry. I am good with other dogs but I prefer boy dogs. But I would be fine being your one and only. I will even greet you with a happy howl when you come home. I might be spoken for already so an application is required. I'm available 10/18/16.
Honey is an 8 mos old Yellow Lab mix. She is super friendly, but needs to run off lots of puppy energy in a fenced in yard. She needs time and training, but is good with people and dogs. She lost her home when her owner suffered a stroke and was no longer able to care for her. She is available as of Tuesday 10/11/16.
