Meet the Gang



Lula is an adorable 3-month-old lab mix from an unwanted litter. Lula's mother is a petite black lab and we don't know about daddy, but she could be black and tan hound, rottweiler, shepherd. We anticipate she will be a medium dog (45-55 lbs) when she is full grown. Lula is lovable and dog-friendly, currently being fostered with an adult Shepherd mix.

She is still a complete baby who is working on crate training & housebreaking in her foster home and will need adopters to provide continued training. Lula is fully vaxxed, will be spayed next month (Feb) and would do best in an active home where she gets regular exercise and stimulation.

Maple is a striking approximately 1-year-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-friendly but energetic so not all dogs appreciate her play style, and she is.

good with respectful older children (10+). She has not been tested with cats. 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!



Rascal and Whiskey are handsome 5-month-old brindle hound mixes from an accidental litter. Rascal is the smaller and more submissive of the two pups, currently about 28lbs, and we anticipate he will be a large dog (60+ 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 curious but friendly to the cat in his foster home and he is still a jumpy puppy so a home without toddlers is probably safest for everyone.

Rascal is working on crate training & housebreaking 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.



Winnie is a sassy and playful approximately 4-year-old chihuahua mix female who came to us from Meriden Animal Control - she was surrendered after multiple neighbor complaints that the poor dog was tied to a back porch at all hours and in all weather. She is about 14 pounds full grown.

Winnie was tested with other dogs at the pound and did ok, but in her foster home she has been very fresh with a calm older dsog, & she chases the cat, so we think Winnie should be the only pet in her home.

She would do fine with respectful older children (10+). She is mostly housebroken and crate trained. We will be having her spayed and vaccinated in coming weeks so she is ready for a forever home that will give her the comfort and attention she deserves.



Daffodil is a senior papillon mix we rescued last year from a local pound & adopted to a retiree. The plan was for her and Daffodil to have a quiet life together, but her adopters’ life got complicated since she took in Daffodil. Family members with young kids and hyper dogs moved in, creating a hectic environment that made Daff miserable. We agreed it was best to bring her back to The Gang and find her a better fit.

Daffodil is about 8/9 years old, she is fully vetted, and she would really do best in a quiet home without other pets or little kids. She is a perfect lap dog and companion for an empty nester or retiree. She walks decently on leash, she is housetrained when she can be kept on a schedule, and she is fully vetted.



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.
