Meet the Gang

Naya

Naya is an adorable, 2-year-old purebred mini American shepherd who came to us as a local owner surrender through no fault of Naya's.  She is a petite girl, full grown under 25 lbs. Naya previously lived happily with cats and she has been fine with the mellow dogs we introduced her to, but she is a skittish girl so high energy dogs are too much for her. For that same reason we think she would do best in a home with older, respectful kids (12+).

Naya is housebroken and crate trained, and she knows commands. She also loves to be outside and enjoys following noisy lawn equipment.

Naya would do best in a home where she gets a lot of attention and exercise, please read up on her breed if you're unfamiliar. She needs to be spayed and have shots updated so she is ready for her forever family.

Hudson

Hudson is a stunning, leggy Great Pyrenees/hound mix puppy who is 5 months old. He was part of an unwanted litter, and we committed to finding him and her sisters Izzy and Alice forever homes. Hudson is about 35 lbs currently, and we think he will be a large dog when he is done growing - probably 65+ lbs. Hudson is timid and submissive with other dogs and people, would be respectful with a cat, and likes children. He is working on his house training and crate training in his foster home, and is awful on a leash - he is used to a fenced outdoor space so he will need training to be ready for leash walks. 

Hudson is neutered and vaccinated. He needs a forever home to continue puppy training, give him consistency and routine, and exercise him regularly, as Great Pyrs are an active breed.

Morning Glory

Morning Glory is a 6/7-year-old mama pit mix who came to us from Bloomfield Animal Control. She was picked up after roaming door to door, weak and emaciated, seeking food - clearly dumped by a neglectful owner after having litter after litter of puppies. Despite this mistreatment, Glory is an absolute sweetheart. She loves every kind person she meets, even though she can be a little hand-shy at first. She likes kids. She is fine with small dogs but understandably very nervous/defensive about male dogs and dogs her size, so we are seeking a home with no other dog, or tiny ones, for her.

After a lengthy vet stay to get her healthy, Glory is now spayed, vaccinated, and free of mammary tumors. She is housebroken and does not need to be crated. She just needs a kind forever home.

Jax

Jax is a handsome 1-year-old Staffordshire terrier mix who is full grown around 55 lbs. Jax is a sweet, medium energy dog who is anxious in new situations but does well with other dogs with proper introductions. He is also cat-friendly. Jax shouldn't live with small children. Jax is crate trained and house trained but is still a large puppy so he needs consistency and routine to succeed without accidents. He is a smart boy who knows lots of commands and listens well. He just needs an adopter to continue building his confidence. Jax is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He is ready to meet his forever family!

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.

Izzy

Izzy is a lanky, beautiful Great Pyrenees/hound mix puppy who is 5 months old. She was part of an unwanted litter, and we committed to finding her and her sister Alice and brother Hudson forever homes. Izzy is about 25 lbs currently, and we think she will be on the large side when she is done growing - probably 60ish lbs. Izzy is very playful, acrobatic and confident with other dogs and people, is curious but respectful with a cat, and likes children. She is mostly house trained, crates well, and is awful on a leash - she is used to a fenced outdoor space so she will need training to be ready for leash walks. 

Izzy is spayed and vaccinated. She needs a forever home to continue puppy training, give her consistency and routine, and let her burn her considerable puppy energy. She would do awesome to grow up with kids.

Ringo

Ringo is a handsome, huge Afghan hound mix puppy who is 6 months old. He and his brother Lenny were an accidental litter to a purebred Afghan mama and a dad we think is German shorthaired pointer mix. Ringo is the much larger of the two pups, at 56 lbs already, so we think he is going to be close to 100 lbs when he is full grown. Ringo is mild, sweet, clingy, loves other dogs, is fine with cats, gentle with kids. He is still unsure about leash walking and he cannot get close enough to his person. He is working on housebreaking and crate training in foster and doing well depending on the day. 

Ringo is neutered and vaccinated. What he needs is a home with some space for his horsey bod, and lots of attention and reassurance to build his confidence. He is not high energy but he does need regular playtime.

Paco

Paco is an adorable, super tiny tri-color male chihuahua puppy who is 6 months old. He came to us as a local owner surrender, from a young family who did not have the time to devote to him that they knew he deserves. Paco is only about 4-5 lbs currently and should not grow much larger - extremely petite. Paco lived with young children and does great with them, and he has been fine with the larger dog in his foster home. His best friend was a cat in his first home, and he is very interested in the cat in his foster home too. He is mostly house trained and also uses pee pads, and he's never been crated and does well with a baby gate. He is playful and affectionate, a typical sassy spoiled chi.

Paco needs to be fully vetted/neutered so he will be available for adoption once we get that done. We would love him to go to a home with small dog experience, where his adopters can give him lots of attention.

Alice

Alice is a stocky, sweet boxer mix puppy who is 5 months old. She was part of an unwanted litter, and we committed to finding her and her sister Izzy forever homes. Alice is heavy and solid at about 35 lbs currently, and we think she will be on the large side when she is done growing - probably 60ish lbs. Alice is sweet and tentative, submissive with other dogs and people, would be fine with a cat, and likes children. She is mostly house trained, crates perfectly, and is absolutely awful on a leash - she is used to a fenced yard so she will need training to be ready for leash walks. 

Alice is spayed and vaccinated. She needs a forever home to continue puppy training, give her consistency and routine, and let her play and develop confidence. She would love a canine sibling to help with that.

Lenny

Lenny is a lanky Afghan hound mix puppy who is 6 months old. He and his brother Ringo were an accidental litter to a purebred Afghan mama and a dad we think is German shorthaired pointer mix. Lenny is the smaller of the two pups, at 37lbs, but we think he is going to be close to 80 lbs when he is full grown. Lenny is mild, sweet, goofy, loves other dogs, is fine with cats, gentle with kids. He is still unsure about leash walking and he cannot get close enough to his person. He is working on housebreaking and crate training in foster and doing well depending on the day. 

Lenny is neutered and vaccinated. What he needs is a home with some space for his horsey bod, and lots of attention and reassurance to build his confidence. He would love a doggy friend.
