Mickey

Mickey is an adorable 11-month old yorkie/Havanese mix male puppy who was surrendered to us by owners who weren't allowed to have pets in their apartment. Mickey is a lovable, energetic little guy who gets along with other dogs and is fine with the cat in his foster home. He also loves little kids!  Basically the more attention, the better. Mickey is pee pad trained and almost fully housebroken, and he is crate trained as well.

Mickey had his core vaccines and will be neutered and chipped on 5/6 so that he is ready to go home with his forever family. He will need regular exercise and continued manners training since he's still a baby.

Maple

Maple is a striking approximately 18-month-old heeler mix female who weighs 60 lbs and is full grown. She was left in a pound and unclaimed, and we can't understand why someone wouldn't want this beautiful girl.

Maple is dog-selective and energetic so not all dogs appreciate her bully play style, and she is good with respectful older children (12+). She has not been tested with cats but we think it's a no due to her strong prey drive. Maple should live with a male dog or no other dogs. She is housebroken and crate trained and her foster reports that she has wonderful house manners and loves to snuggle. She would be happy to play all day! So she should go to a home prepared to regularly exercise her to burn that energy.

Maple is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped so she is ready when you are!

Zuni

Zuni is an angelic 8-year-old border collie/Swiss mountain dog mix female who was surrendered to us reluctantly by owners who felt she was anxious and unhappy in a home with a toddler. Zuni is obedient, gentle, smart and calm. She walks nicely on leash, is house trained and doesn't need a crate. She gets along with other dogs and people, but she is a little nervous and skittish with new people/situations.

Zuni would do well with older kids (10+) and she loves room to roam. She has enjoyed her prior owner working from home the last 2 years so ideally her next home would have her person home with her a lot. Zuni is spayed and her vaccines will be updated 5/6 so she is ready for her retirement home.

Nalah

Nalah is an energetic, affectionate 7-year-old female pit bull mix who came to us after being surrendered to Meriden Animal Control. She is a compact 40 lbs, and was recently vetted so she is spayed and up to date on shots. Nalah was friendly but dominant with the dogs we introduced her to, so a meet and greet with potential canine housemates is required. We were told she previously lived with a cat. She would be fine with respectful kids. 

Nalah is housebroken and doesn't need to be crated - in fact she is anxious when caged and has some Houdini escape skills. She loves to chill on the couch and have her belly rubbed.

She walks decently on leash but will pull if she gets excited. Nalah would do great in a home where she gets lots of attention and regular exercise.

Rascal

Rascal is a handsome 9-month-old brindle shepherd/border collie mix from an accidental litter. Rascal is currently about 45lbs, and we anticipate he will be a large dog (60ish lbs) when he is full grown. Rascal is a sweet Velcro dog who loves to run and play with other pups, and wants to be in your lap. He is being antagonistic to the cat in his foster home and he is still a jumper so a home without toddlers or cats is probably safest for everyone. He is high energy and loves toys. He needs someone firm to work on manners with him.

Rascal is working on crate training & is basically housebroken in his foster home and will need continued training since he is still a big baby. He is neutered and fully vetted, and would do best in an active home where he gets regular exercise and stimulation.
