  Fritzy, 2 years Male Yorkie / Schnauzer  Mix

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 has had no interactions with cats other than outside and he doesn’t seem to notice them at all. 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. We welcome donations to help pay for his hospital expenses from the vaccine reaction. Thank you!

Champ is a young Cocker/Puggle mix who recently came into Boston Animal Control. Champ is fitting of his name because he has been trying to make the best of a bad situation, losing his brother and also the little Chi sister he had. The ACO says "He is a LOVE!" He was scared in the shelter so we'll get better pictures soon. This one is his "mug shot" so don't hold it against him. He will be available soon after his neuter.

Click on picture to enlarge

Available On: 8/30/14

Apply To Adopt

Misty, 3-4 years Female Pekingese 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. She is protective of her mouth as it’s still setting so she doesn’t want dogs in her face. But she 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 extremely loving and affectionate. She also has bursts of comic playfulness. She has a great appetite and has been on a diet of softened healthy kibbles for her mouth. 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.

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

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 SATURDAY MEET & GREET.

Buddy   Buddy
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.

  Jada, 1 year, 8 months Female Brittany/Pointer/Bully  Mix
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!

Apply To Adopt

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.

Apply To Adopt

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.

Adoption Pending

Heidi is a 2 1/2 yr old American Eskimo who adores attention and sharing a lap with lots of petting. Heidi is a tripod but you would never know it the way she runs up and down stairs like any 4-legged dogs. Her story: she had been treated for a broken leg but the owners did not properly care for her so the leg had to be amputated. She zooms around and the missing leg doesn't slow her down. She can climb like a cat and run like a rabbit!!! She runs up and down steep stairs with no problem. But her favorite thing to do is to sit in your lap with you rubbing her belly. She is a real lap dog and would be fine for a retiree. Heidi is waiting to spend many fun and happy times with people that will want and will love her. She is indifferent with other dogs but more comfortable with dogs smaller than herself. She would do well as an only dog and the queen of the house. She is both house trained and crate trained. She is very quiet and could easily be an apartment or condo dog. She is a whimsical little dog who will own your heart in a very big way. If Heidi needs correcting, all it takes is the mention of her name and all is made right. She is a most affectionate companion. She's in a foster home so apply for a private appointment.

Adoption in Progress

Gerry, 3-4 months Male Terrier Mix Gerry’s foster parents say this cute guy is the total terrier package. He is adorable, fun loving, sweet and highly intelligent. He’s almost totally housebroken himself (if taken out on a regular basis) and sleeps through the night with no accidents. He gets along with all sizes of dogs. His current best friend is a big standard poodle. He also enjoys playing with the cats in the home. He is learning well on leash and loves to walk. He knows how to sit, fetches his ball and brings it back and comes when called. He listens and is very responsive to consistent commands. Gerry is just a youngster and has a lot of growing to do so someone is going to be able to enjoy every moment with him. He is looking for a loving home filled with fun and a good sense of humor. Gerry loves to entertain and be the center of someone’s world but would love to have a nother dog or cat to be his pal. Because he is so small and young we ask for tweens and older.

Adoption in Progress

Sweet little Marty weighs just 10 lbs. and is about 3 yrs. He came from TN where his days were numbered in a high volume shelter. When he was rescued he had lost at least 50% of his fur due to fleas. His fur has come back and is getting very soft he is a handsome little boy and has done very well in foster. He is house trained and been respectful of the cats and dogs. He greets all the newcomers with a happy tail wag. He loves playing outdoors and wiggles his nose like a little rabbit it's just adorable. From his foster mom: Marty loves to be by his people. Whether we are doing housework or gardening Marty is by our side studying everything that we do. He is incredibly affectionate and smart. He already understands, "stay, come, this way and leave it". Marty is a joy to walk on leash. This is his favorite part of his day and when he sees his harness his face lights up. He strolls with my senior, male dog in the morning. In the evening he strolls several miles with our female pups. Marty loves meeting people on his walks and showers them with kisses. Marty is afraid of bigger dogs and would prefer to stay by his person. He would not be a candidate for doggie day care or dog parks. He has been great with tweens and teens that visit our house. Marty was nervous at first but now enjoys car riding. Marty makes it through the night without any accidents. Because he loves his people so much he prefers to sleep cuddled next to you.

Ruby
Ruby   Ruby
Click on picture to enlarge

Adoption in Progress

Ruby is a fun-loving two year old female Lab mix who is waiting for her new family. She's friendly and outgoing like a Lab, but has some Shepherd features. She has that Lab exuberance so a fenced in yard would be ideal for her. She's a really nice dog who lost her home because her owners didn't have time for a dog. She oves exploring and is always on bunny patrol. She loves playing fetch. She loves walks too, but needs a no-pull harness as she gets so excited in the beginning of the walk. She was in a shelter where she got no exercise and was fed a corn-based diet so she was overweight, but is already slimming down in her foster home where there is lots of ball throwing and just running around. She will "chill" outside with you if you are gardening and she's not a digger that we've seen. She is well behaved in the home and is totally house broken. She would be fine with a part time worker, but if left for hours on end she will get into a little mischief. She is a mixed breed dog with some Lab, some Collie, some Shepherd and maybe some Hound. She loves her toys and plays well by herself if you get tired of ball throwing. Inside she will snuggle with her human family and be quite content. Ruby will need daily excercise as she is still puppy in her mind. Don't miss out on this wonderful dog. Ages 10 and up are preferable as she sometimes jumps up to greet you. She's in foster care, private appointments are available if you have an application already filled out.
