Hi there, My name is Alyza and I'm a 4 year old spayed friendly girl. I need your help before I can be adopted. I came in with an ACL tear in my right hind leg, but after further evaluation I'm doing well with chiropractic adjustments. I had a twisted uterus and am responding well to treatment. Save A Dog is fund raising in order to minimize costs to my adopter, but neither vet nor chiro sees the need for surgery. I am gentle with babies and toddlers. I lived with five children at one time, from infants to eight years old. I lived with another small dog too. If you think you can adopt me, I will be your best friend for life! Once I'm recovered I like to go on walks and I like to chase a ball. I'm obsessed with tennis balls, but I also destroy them. I sleep in my crate at night and I don't chew anything in your house during the day. I will destroy a stuffed animal, though. I'm house trained. I weigh around 50 lbs.Please give me a chance and adopt me. Thank you!
Savannah is a super sweet friendly 4 year old Bloodhound who loves everyone she meets. Due to an illness in the family and mounting medical bills, they lost their home and had to live with relatives in another state. Savannah had a good home and is well socialized. She loves kids and other dogs. She will harass cats, but doesn't hurt them.
Savannah could use some training as she has a few bad habits that are typical of a hound. She will steal food if left unattended on the counter. She is super well behaved out in public and has never growled, bitten or shown aggression towards anyone for anything. Breed experience or familiarity with the breed is a must. Large hounds cannot be let off leash. She has seasonal allergies.
Dolly is one of a kind. She's good around other dogs and cats. She's really good around children, 8 yrs and up. That's all she's been around. She would probably be good with smaller children. She is slightly spoiled. She is a bowl jumper but knows what "no" means. Potty trained with doggie door and almost housebroken without one. Foster parent says, "She loves sleeping with her people. If she can't get on the bed she will take your shoes and put them in her mouth and take them to her bed. She keeps nudging you to come to bed with her. She talks to us everyday with this hilarious yodel. She is absolutely one of the sweetest dogs we have fostered."
Dolly had a hard life before her rescue. She was chained to a dog house all her life. She got fed when the owner felt like it. She had the saddest eyes when she was rescued, but in her foster home in WV, she is constantly smiling. She's pictured here with her favorite stuffed bear. Dolly is 4 and a half years old and is female beagle mix. She is big boned so weighs around 56 lbs. She looks like a big Beagle. She is fine with all over handling and is great with other dogs, cats and kids.
She is house trained with access to a doggie door. She knows sit.
Sorry about the video quality - but you can see she's fine with handling.

FEMALE HOME ONLY! 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 “sit” 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 won’t 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 is heart worm free. Apply at www.saveadog.org
Gemmi is a two year old corgi/spaniel/lab mix. She weighs 27 lbs. She is such a sweet girl who always wants to cuddle. She loves to get belly rubs and give kisses. She talks to you and she uses her paws like a Boxer. She's so darling, but can be head shy at first so a fenced in yard and a home with teens and up would be best while she transitions to her new home. Please fill out an application and come and meet this beautiful girl! She would do best with teens and up.
Jubilee is a two year old spayed, 47 lb Sighthound/Collie mix who came to New England with her pups. The pups found homes and now it's her turn. She is a people dog, has never met a person she does not want to give a kiss to, (including children,although very young children may be a problem because of her size). She will be an awesome fur family member for some lucky family as she's very affectionate and she's lived in a home -- she knows the drill already! She lived with a cat so is good with cats. She's 100% house trained and never an accident says her foster family. She is crate trained and knows the word "Cubby". She's an absolute love of a dog and loves to play. She is a really nice beginner dog. She had an injury where she is not always able to lift her tail, but her chiropractor sees this as an easy-fix and we're giving homeopathic remedies as well.
Gohan is a one year old male Collie mix who is from WV. He weighs 47 lbs. He is fine with all over handling and fine with other dogs and kids. He is interested in cats, but hasn't been aggressive, just curious (probably a cat-free household would be best). Gohan LOVES showers. So you'd better lock the bathroom door or he'll climb in...and then
muscle his way in front of you to hog the shower. He's playful and very friendly. Gohan grew up with other dogs, including his mother. He enjoys playing with other dogs and is okay with more dominant dogs. He loves to be around people, and will even join you in the shower! He doesn't mind his own baths, and will let you use a hair dryer, but would prefer air dry. He likes to play and is a ball of energy. Gohan will squirm over on the couch cuddle, and he is happy to be a lapdog (for brief periods of time between playing). His previous owners had to give him up because they were unable to provide enough time for him. While he doesn't seem to tear things up, he will get into everything if you leave him alone, so we're looking for an adopter who can provide Gohan with an interesting life with daily adventures that will address his needs.

Hi, My name is Peanut because I was a little peanut-sized pup when I arrived at my former owner's home as a very young pup. I grew into a beautiful Lab. My mother was a purebred Yellow Lab and my father was a Yellow Lab mix. Here's some things you need to know. I'm 3 or 4 years old.
I don't bark unless someone is at the door.
I do not tear or chew things up in the house while the family is gone.
I have gotten in the trash twice but the trash bag had been pulled out and was sitting on the floor and not tied up yet. I have not gotten into the actual trash can. I walk fairly well on leash, but will pull a little (according to the wife).
So far I've done well with other dogs, cats and children. With any dog, you have to keep my social skills up. I have never snapped or tried to bite anyone.
I love to fetch, I love my ball and tug toys. I don't like to give it back too well, so I will need some training. I will bring my toy to you and try to put it in your hand for you to throw it for me.
I don't like to play in water very much but I have not really had the opportunity.
I do not guard my food and I am generally excellent in the house if taken out regularly but will have accidents if left for long periods loose in the house.
I am crate-trained and I do not soil my crate.
Loud noises do not seem to bother me at all.
I ride in the car just fine but it doesn't happen often.
My last family worked opposite shifts so I was not home that much without someone there. They had teenagers who helped with walking us dogs (I lived with a Beagle), but they all got too busy so they felt I could do better. Please don't let that happen to me again. I'm available AFTER 3/22.
Jesse is a 10 year old Norwich Terrier (we mistook him for a Yorkie mix) who came up from Indiana. He lived in a home with two other dogs. He just got neutered so will be available on Sunday only, 1-3 PM. He is very sweet. He came in with a flea allergy which we expect to resolve on the new food and homeopathic remedies. Please apply online if you're interested. Jesse was adopted on 3/17/17 but was returned due to an allergic reaction in the owner.
If the dog you saw on this page is no longer listed, chances are, s/he's been adopted. Try looking on our
recently adopted dogs page!
Important note: We do not have the resources to return general phone call and/or email inquries on dogs or puppies. Please fill out an application if you would like to be contacted, or come to a Meet & Greet. Thank you!
