Available On: 9/13/14

Apply To Adopt

Dawn is a pretty little girl, and is small--less than 25 lb. Her foster mom says of her: She was scared for about 24 hours and then she turns into a goofy, funny dog who just wants to play, play, play. She would try to play with anything that moves...dogs, cats, people, anything. She must play bow about 100 times a day. She has lots of energy and races around my backyard. She has no fear in the backyard, so I think she really needs one. And she just loves other dogs, so another dog would be good. She is good with cats...mostly just tries to get them to play with her. She is housebroken; sleeps through the night without a peep. She is very good at keeping herself occupied. She has dragged every toy in the house into her crate and plays with them constantly. Very affectionate once she gets over her initial fear. Not afraid of people coming into the house, though there haven't been any men in here lately, so I don't know how she would react in that situation. Frightened by loud noises or sudden movements, so I don't think little kids or the city would be a good idea. Overall, she has been a very easy foster. If someone would just give her a chance to get over the first 24 hours, I think she would make someone a great pet. Don't miss out on this awesome dog. She is spayed. In one of her pictures, she looks cross-eyed, but she's not. Please apply at www.saveadog.org/applytoadopt.asp

  Rosie, 2 Years Female Jack Russell Terrier  Mix
Rosie

Click on picture to enlarge

Available On: 10/22/14

Apply To Adopt

Rosie came to us from St Thomas after having at least one litter. She is spayed and looking for her forever home. She is sweet and affectionate and loves to play ball. She will entertain herself with toys or an antler, but loves to snuggle with her person too. She is very bonded to Jazzy her pup. She also bosses Jazzy around a bit so they will each need their alone time, perhaps with a family with teens who each wants their own dog to sleep with. She has so much personality and is just about the most loving dog you will ever meet. She has not been around kids that we know of so we hope to find her a family with kids older than 10.

Available On: 10/22/14

Apply To Adopt

Jazzy is a 1 year old Jack Russell Terrier who came to Save A Dog from St Thomas. She is a little shy right now and needs a little confidence building. She is learning to love and trust. She is very bonded to her Mom and it would be a miracle for them to be adopted together, but the adopter would need to give each their own special time together so that Jazzy is able to blossom into a lovely adult. She has always been with another dog so a pal at home would be great for her to learn from. She just needs someone to give her that chance. She was spayed 10/23/14 and will be available to meet this weekend.

Trooper
Trooper
Click on picture to enlarge

Available On: 10/4/14

Apply To Adopt

Trooper is an amazing dog. He is around 1- 2 years old and briefly adopted but his prey drive was too much for their bunny and cat. Trooper is a great dog with a lot to offer. He is completely housebroken and sleeps in a crate at night. He sticks with you on the hiking trail and is very friendly with other dogs. He was was sprung from a high volume shelter in NC where he was scheduled for euthanasia -- he was rescued in the nick of time and he has been so grateful and thankful. He can be like a big puppy at times so would be too much for small dogs or small children, but he knows how to calm down in the house. A fenced in yard would be best as he likes to give squirrels chase. Please apply if you are interested.

Sebastian is a long-legged mix. He looks like a combination of Lab, Terrier, and Dobi, and has a winning personality. He came to us from St Thomas and is 1.5 years old. He weighs 38 lbs. He is the cutest dog and really still a pup. He has no baggage! He has a fuzzy face that is beyond cute. It's hard to believe he was picked up as a stray. He is a joyful pup who would like an active family or another energetic dog sibling to play with. He would not do well if he had to be alone most of the day. He loves to play fetch and to play with his squeaky toys. He loves everyone and jumps up and down for joy when the teen volunteers come because he knows they are going to play with him. He settles down and snuggles or plays quietly with his toys inside. He is housebroken too. Sebastian is not in a foster home so is available to meet this week. Come meet this wonderful, loving guy!

Shaggy is a 4 year old shaggy dog. We're not quite sure what breed he is, but he's very cute. We're just getting to know him. He's a quiet boy and seems to be sweet. He is a little shy but is quickly learning that pats and belly rubs are great! He must not have had toys in his past and is loving the new introductions of play things and people. He is being neutered 10/23/14 and will be available after that.

Available On: 11/1/14

Apply To Adopt

Nelson is a 6-8 yr old terrier, very tiny about 5 lbs. and very fiesty. Nelson has the small dog "attitude" that can be both comical and frustrating. We think because he was neutered late in life that it will take some time for him to mellow out. Nelson walks on a leash and loves toys, he is great with cats, and is house broken and crate trained.He has a lot to offer, but if he doesn't know you, go slow. He is currently staying with 6 other small dogs and gets along great with all of them. When new dogs come into the house he tries to be the boss and will run after them. He does not realize that he is a mini dog so one needs to watch him for his own safety. Nelson is pretty spry for a senior and plays with toys and carries them around like he has hunted them. He likes to settle down for naps on the sofa and be close to foster mom. He can be a little terror sometimes but what can you do? He's a terrier! Nelson is in foster care so Privarte appointments only.

Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

Jada is a cute dog. She looks like a big Jack Russell Terrier. She has a lot to offer and would be perfect for a single person or couple who likes to hike and swim. We think an adult home would be best as she plays too rough with kids. 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. Her story: 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 and would do well in doggy play groups. At home she likes to be the queen, although she's currently living with two other big male dogs.In that group, she's the middle child. She would chase a cat, so no cats or small animals is best. 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.

Jodi Lee is one of three Beagle/Corgi/Jack Russell mix pups who came here from TN. She is approximately a year old. These sweet dogs have waited so long to have a family of their own. They are a tad overweight but they have been more active, eating high quality food and really slimming down quickly. They are adorable with short little legs and big eyes. There were 4 in the litter but one was shot so in order to save the other 3 a kind neighbor took them in when they were very young but can't keep them any longer so we want to continue her good efforts to find each of them a great home. She will bark at a cat, but won't chase. Not raised with children. Their names are Buster Brown, Sara Sue and Jodie Lee.

Available On: 9/27/14

Apply To Adopt

Skippy is a very sweet mixed breed dog who came to us from St. Thomas. Skippy is shy at first, but adapts to his family quickly. His foster family writes, "Skippy is a little lovebug and has become much more confident since hes been with us. Hes an easy keeper hes completely housetrained and sleeps quietly in his crate through the night. Skippy thrives on being outside, so an outdoorsy family would be perfect for him. We have taken him hiking, jogging, and to the dog park and hes done great. He bounces along with his tail wagging! He enjoys meeting other dogs and is very polite with them. As long as new people allow him to approach them at his own pace, he will warm up to them within a few minutes. He was shy inside the house the first day, but has adjusted well. The other night, he fell asleep on my lap while we were watching TV! He tends to be exuberant outdoors and calm and cuddly indoors. He will quietly seek out affection by resting his chin on my hand to be rubbed, or putting his front feet up on the bench beside me so Ill scratch his belly. With a little patience and encouragement, Skippy quickly adapts to new experiences. Hes continuing to make great progress every day!. Skippy would do best with a fenced in yard. He will be available this coming weekend to meet you.

Apply To Adopt

China is a very young, grey, female cockatiel looking for an awesome home. She is super social and loves her people. She will sit on your shoulder for hours while you work around the house. She does have her full wings, but usually only chooses to fly to her favorite people. She loves to eat all kinds of fresh and cooked foods in addition to her dry diet of mostly pellets. She loves to bathe and flaps her wings and hangs upside down when you spray her with water. She loves to chew up wood and play with toys. She's very busy and very sweet. If you are looking for an easy going bird to be your best friend, you've found her! China would love a home with a single person, or a small family with older children. Please no cats or dogs in the home with prey drive, we want China to be safe and comfortable. She can go as an only bird or to a home with other birds. Prior bird experience is a plus. Where she was found as as stray, keeping her safe and preventing her from escaping is of utmost importance. Most bird experts recommend 12-16 toys should be available for a bird to play with at any one time, and recommend adding or moving them around their cage at least weekly to keep their environment interesting. Email adoptions@saveadog.org for an application. We don't know how old she is, but she's young.

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.

Adoption in Progress

UPDATE ON LAUREL: She recently had a lump removed from her back, which turned out to be cancerous, so her foster mom is going to keep her and provide hospice care for the rest of her days. 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. 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.
