Bentley is a gentle brindle hound dog who is approximately 5 years old and came to us as a reluctant owner surrender from a family who noticed Bentley was extremely anxious about their toddler. Bentley is a nervous guy at first but he loves people, gets along with other dogs with proper introductions, is fine with cats, and would be good with teens+. He is full grown around 60 lbs.
Bentley is housebroken, doesn't need to be crated, is medium energy, and neutered. We are having his shots updated next week and then he will be ready for a calm and patient forever home, perhaps with empty nesters, a family with teens, or a single person. He is a really sweet boy who just needs time to warm up.
Olivia is a beautiful, sad 2-year-old mixed breed - probably terrier mix of some kind - who is full grown around a petite 35lbs. She came to us after being returned to another rescue for being too shy. Poor girl wasn't given a chance. Olivia came from a hoarding situation originally, which is why she is timid and slow to warm up. But she is great with other dogs, cats, and older kids (10+).
She is crate trained, housebroken, and calm and well-mannered in the house. She just needs a patient adopter who will give her time to get comfortable in a new place.
She is spayed, fully up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
All this pretty girl needs is a kind and understanding home.
Bailey is a handsome, skinny 2-year-old male, a labrador retriever/possibly husky mix who came to us as an owner surrender. He has been underfed and his ears have inexplicably been cropped, but he bears no grudge and is an energetic playful puppyish boy! Bailey is friendly with people and other dogs, but he is just too much energy for small dogs so he should live with other sturdy dogs nearer his size. No experience with cats and kids should be bigger (10+) so they aren't bowled over, as Bailey likes to jump and can be mouthy - he needs continued manners training.
Bailey has ho use training manners and is working on crate training and commands. Bailey is neutered and vaccinated so he is ready for a very active forever family and would benefit from a securely fenced yard.
Daffodil is a sweet spaniel/chi? mix girl who is approximately 5 years old and came to us as a surrender from a home that bred her and gave her puppies away. This poor little thing was a day away from being let go on the streets and we can't understand why. Daffodil is a sweetheart who is fine with other female dogs, cats, and kids. She is full grown around 10 lbs.
She is working on housebreaking and crate training in her foster home because both seem new to her, as we await a comprehensive vet visit to spay and vaccinate her and get her ready for a permanent home that will spoil and dote on her.
Jeff has an all-too-common story: a southern rescue dog who tested positive for heartworm. Heartworm is deadly if untreated, & the treatment is very expensive & hard on a dog - so Jeff ended up at the pound. Thankfully the pound started Jeff’s heartworm treatment to save his life, and we are finishing it.
Jeff is only about 1.5 years old, a medium-size (50lb) Plott hound mix, and what a stunning boy! He gets along well with other dogs, but no cats for Jeff, & he would be fine in a home with respectful kids. He is neutered and fully vaccinated. He is doing well with housebreaking and is crate trained. He just finished his strict rest period and he is now ready to playyyyyy. He would love a home with another dog for that.
Petunia is a sweet, senior Shih Tzu mix girl who is approximately 8-10 years old and came to us in very rough shape. She was turned into a local animal control as a "found" dog but they suspect the finders were just her neglectful owners, dumping their dog. Petunia is not spayed and has some mammary tumors, as well as infected ears and rotten teeth. Despite all that, she is great with other dogs, cats, and kids.
We are assessing her housebreaking and crate manners in her foster home as we await a comprehensive vet visit to clean this sweet old lady up and get her ready for a retirement home that will spoil and dote on her in her golden years.
Chase -adoption pending
Chase is a stunning 4-year-old husky mix male who originally came to us from Texas where he was roaming outside for a while - he was adopted here in CT and then returned because his new home's schedule was not a fit for him. Chase is amazing with other dogs and really enjoys living with other canines - he is more of a dog's dog than a people dog, but he does warm up to and obey humans too. Chase is crate trained, but has struggled with housebreaking since he is used to living outside, and needs a patient adopter who is home a lot and can put him on a good potty schedule. He is already neutered and fully vaccinated and microchipped, so he just needs an adopter willing to work with him. No cats for Chase.
