Rescue Me ID: 14-04-23-00293Harlow (female)

Chesapeake Bay Retriever Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    My daughter adopted 'Harlow' from an animal shelter about 5 years ago. Since then she has bought a house, had a baby and got a new job that leaves her very little time to properly give the care and attention that the dog needs. I am currently taking care of 'Harlow' at my house because my daughter is overwhelmed with responsibility. She is a great well-behaved dog with a gentle nature but she is to big of a dog for me to keep forever. She needs a large yard to play in or daily walks. She can hold her business for up to 10 hours and does not have separation issues. Excellent watch dog-nothing comes into the yard without her letting us ... (Read More)know. Vaccinations are up to date. Beautiful dog and I have received many compliments about her but she is a big dog (65lbs.), so keep that in mind. I do not want to bring her to a shelter, so I will care for her, until I find her a family that will appreciate her and give her the attention she deserves. Absolutely no cats or small animals in your home. She is a retriever and loves to hunt. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-22-00114Bruno (male)

American Bulldog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Bruno is a 5 yr old American Bulldog. He has shown aggression issues since he was a puppy and has gone through numerous obedience and behavior modification programs. Unfortunately Bruno does have a small bite history. He is very overprotective of anyone he trusts, and gaining his trust takes time and patience. He senses fear in people who try to get to know him and he in turn shows defensive and fearful aggression. Once you earn his trust, he is fun, playful and a big snuggle buddy. He is more easily trusting of females, but it all generally depends on how the person presents themselves to Bruno - by showing dominance and absolutely no ... (Read More)fear, he will easily respect you and trust you - which means he will show you his loving side. He is an awesome dog, but a bit too much for me and my boyfriend to handle at this time. He has gone to doggy daycare in the past, to help with his socialization skills, but had to be muzzled when placed in the room with the other dogs. Generally he kept to himself, which I believe is due to anxiety issues that he may have. If I cannot find an adopter for Bruno soon, I fear that we may have to euthanized unfortunately, which truly breaks my heart, but for my personal situation, he is too much of a liability at this time.

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello I am Patches, an 8 year old gorgeous girl with so much love to give. I love nothing more than cuddling with my foster mom or foster brothers ( an 8 year old rottie and an 8 year old beagle). I sit very nicely for treats and am very gentle taking one from foster mom's hand. I have no feeding aggression even if one of the other dogs comes to my bowl. I previously lived with a two year old who would take my bones away while I was chewing them so I would just go find another one. I also let her pile her toys on top of me while I was sleeping. I am housebroken, can sit very nicely and I love to be with my people. I sleep in the room ... (Read More)with my foster mom. I do not chew or destroy anything in her house. I am not crate trained and just sleep on my bed when she is gone. Even though I am 8 I do love to go for a long walk or run around the fenced in yard. A previous foster home had six cats and I was fearful of the large ones but whined and chased the smaller ones in playful manner. I have never met a rabbit so I don't know how I would be in a house with them. If you are looking for a forever friend that just wants to cuddle, lick your face and love you I may be the one for you. If you are interested in finding out more about me please fill out an application on our website http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application. Patches is being fostered in Leominster Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label. (Less)

Health: Spayed 

    Hi I'm Tiny! I am a 4 year old Whippet and Chihuahua mix who weighs about 6 lbs. I am TINY! Can you believe I have even put on some weight since coming into the shelter? They tell me that I need to put on a few more pounds, but I love treats so that shouldn't be a problem. I need a slow introduction to strangers, as I will bark and carry on when we first meet. I am just afraid and once I feel comfortable I will jump on your lap and look for attention.Although I just love the 2 dogs in my foster home, there are some dogs that I don't like. We would have to meet to be sure. I am a great combination of spunky and snuggly and I am enjoying ... (Read More)being picked up and cuddled by my foster mom. I am housebroken if kept on a schedule and sleep all through the night in my crate with my cozy blanket without making a peep. I have been nervous around some new men, I am so small that they can be scary! I am a sweetheart and would love to go to training classes and learn that these people are always bringing me treats!

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Tuukka is a great dog unfortunately we can not keep him due to new jobs that do not allow us to have any time home with him so he is in his crate for long periods of time. He loves to play but also loves to cuddle( thinks he is a lap dog). He is great with kids just at first gets excited. But with a little more training and being around more people that excitement won't be so much. Loves to run and go for walks he is very submissive when other dogs walk by him he lays on the ground until other dog is passed him. We do not want him to go to a shelter or to be put down so we are looking for a great loving home.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We're not sure whether Buddy is a small miniature poodle, or a large toy poodle, but whichever he is, he's quite the man. He's known at the shelter as busy buddy, as he is very curious, and likes to explore. Buddy is a medium to high energy dog, whose tail never stops wagging. He was brought to us as a stray, and we can't figure out how this very cute little dog ended up here at the shelter, but we're certain that he'll make someone a terrific pet. Buddy is a very youthful 2 years old.

    Hello! I'm Lola, a 2-3 year old bundle of LOVE! My favorite activities are snuggling, getting pats and giving kisses. If you're into this, we're a match made in heaven! I am about 55lbs, if you're wondering. I'm good with other dogs, having lived with both males and females. And, cats don't seem to bother me. I have been cooped up in a house for quite some time, with no real attention from people, so please forgive my exuberance! I am just SO HAPPY! I seem to be house trained and am learning about the crate, which I don't mind. My foster parents are teaching me all the rules, and they tell me about this thing called 'obedience ... (Read More)school'. Sounds awesome! Showing off and getting treats... What's not to like?! I can't wait to find my forever home and forever people, won't you consider making me yours?

Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Tanner is high energy and needs the right owner for him to be a good pet. He is obedient kid friendly and very sweet and submissive to his owner. He is Neutered but is still dog aggressive when he gets jealous. It would be best if he was the only dog. I currently have three other dogs and cant give Tanner the attention he deserves. His major behavior issue is separation anxiety he must be crated when you are not home. He does not react well to loud aggressive people or being yelled at so who ever has him has to be responsible and nice a person that is willing to do what's best for him. He loves running around in the woods and has a high prey ... (Read More)drive so if your outdoorsy or a hunter he would be good for you. (Less)

    This handsome boy is Goomba! Goomba was found as a stray on the streets of Philadelphia and was brought into Animal Care and Control in North Philly. He found a home pretty quickly but couldn't stay there after he started getting into some scuffles with the resident dog. Goomba is an incredibly sweet dog who absolutely loves being close to his humans, chewing on Kongs and taking up as much room as possible on the couch. He does need some help with his basic manners (he's a puppy after all!) but he is a fast learner and is improving daily. Goomba would do best in an active home where someone can help him burn off his puppy energy! He is ... (Read More)about a year old, neutered, and roughly 70 pounds (although he could stand to lose a few of those). Goomba does not get along with other dogs and needs to be an only pet. He doesn't understand how big he is so he should be placed with adults only or older kids who have dog experience. He is a big, lovable goofball just looking for a family who will appreciate his unconditional love! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-11-00199Trigger (male)

Redbone Coonhound    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Trigger, he's a 2 year old red tick coonhound (his birthday is May 27th so he's almost 3). He loves long walks with lots of sniffs and playing keep away with his toys. He's looking for a home with lots of activities and chances to get outside. He's crate trained and knows how to sit, lay down, beg, 'wait' and holds extra still when you're putting on his harness for a walk. He's a little excitable and may do a little jumping at first when he meets you but it's only because he loves to meet new people. He can be great with other dogs but he takes his ques from them. If they're friendly he's good, if they're aggressive he'll do the ... (Read More)same. He hasn't been around a lot of children so he's not sure if he'll be good with them. Older children who are taller than him may be best. Because of his breed he does chase small animals so he may be best without cats in the home. Also due to his breed he likes to run free and sniff everything, so it's recommended not to let him off his leash, at least until he's been trained to stick around or actually come when called. He's stubborn and because he loves the game 'keep away' if he gets loose he thinks it's just a big ole game. But he's very good on his leash save for a bit of excited pulling. He'll 'leave it' if hes into something he shouldn't be. And if someones approaching all he needs is to be told 'it's ok be nice' and he'll make a new best friend. He loves to cuddle, but being a lanky boy he's a bit of a bed hog! He loves his ears rubbed, but isn't a fan of having his tail grabbed. I recommend feeding him then picking up the bowl so he doesn't feel the need to be possessive. He loves his crate and will go in it when you tell him you have to leave or point and say 'crate'. He doesn't like to be bothered if he's sleeping and should always be alone if given a bone. He may be possesive and growl. Trigger is a wonderful sweet dog, the only reason he's being re-homed is because Joe and I have a baby on the way and are looking for an apartment. We cant afford him and our baby, and we don't know if we'll find a place that lets us keep him. If at all possible we'd love to get updates on him if you chose to adopt him. Just so we know how he's doing. We do love him very much. If you have any questions please give us a call we'd be happy to talk and arrange a meet & greet with you. (Less)

Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Vangie is a sweet eight month old pitbull mix who is solid white except for the adorable black speckles on her ears. She was surrendered to us by her owners when they couldn't afford to care for her any more. Vangie previously lived with kids, cats and other dogs with no issues. She would benefit greatly from some confidence boosting training. A confident dog friend would also be good for her as she really enjoys other dogs. Vangie needs to work on not jumping up but she just loves people so much that she just wants to say hello to everyone. She has already learned sit and she waits patiently for treats. Vangie hasn't been crate trained ... (Read More)in the past but her foster home is working on teaching her to appreciate her crate. (As I type this, she is contently sleeping in the crate.) She is also acclimating to a leash very well. Please stay tuned for updates as we learn more about Vangie. She currently weighs 37 lbs. If you are interested in finding out more about Vangie, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Vangie is being fostered in Millbury and the adoption fee is $325. Please understand that we will not place bully breeds in homes with same gender bullies. NOTE: Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Bella is a 4 year old American Bulldog Pointer Mix. She has been spayed. We rescued her 4 months ago but need to rehome her because my older dog is having difficulty getting along with her. We hired a trainer to work with us and learned that Bella is very smart and quick to learn. She understands 'heel', 'sit', 'stay', 'down', 'easy,' 'quiet' She walks great on a leash, right by your side with no pulling. She is housebroken, crate trained, does not go up on furniture or chew items in the home. She requires only a moderate amount of exercise. She loves to be in the car and to snuggle with her people. We have not had the opportunity to see her ... (Read More)with cats or children. She is a loyal dog and loves to just follow you around the house. Like all dogs (and as Cesar Millan would say), she needs a calm assertive Pack leader. When first meeting someone she needs a little time to warm up to the new person but then once she is comfortable will quickly roll on her back for a belly rub. She can be anxious in crowds (but did fine when we brought her downtown Newburyport) or lots of commotion so her ideal home would be a calm place with an experienced dog owner. She loves her people and a super sweet girl. Loves to cuddle up and be covered with her blanket at night. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Henry! Henry is a Chihuahua weighing in at 10lbs, who is 10 years young. In the short time that Henry has been with Broken Tail Rescue, he has won the hearts of many volunteers, with his sweet and gentle demeanor. All that Henry really wants are people to call his own and a warm bed or lap to snuggle on. He is a calm, friendly guy who bonds quickly, and whole heartedly loves anyone who gives him some attention. Don't let his age fool you though, Henry is full of life! He can keep up on long walks, trips to the park, and other activities that younger dogs enjoy. Henry is playful with small dogs, but a bit intimidated by large dogs. He ... (Read More)lives with a medium sized dog just fine in his foster home, so it's expected that he could live with a large dog, it just might take some time for him to warm up. A very busy home with young kids is probably not the best match for Henry, but older kids who are respectful and understand that a dog of Henry's size is not a toy should be just fine! Henry is a quiet guy, so he would be ideal for apartment living. He adjusted to the sights and sounds of city living quickly, so we expect that he could live just about anywhere. He loves to tag along for errands, rides well in the car, and walks nicely on a leash. Henry has no problem being handled, which is great because he looks pretty darn cute in dog clothes! He is housetrained, and is fine taking bathroom trips in the morning, after a work day, and before bed. Click on Henry's video to see him in action on the first warm day this Spring! Please consider adopting Henry and giving him the loving home that he so deserves!

    Ruby bonds very quickly with her owner, but snaps and barks at strangers, but never bitten. She would do best in a home with no children where the owner is home or with her most of the day as she has a fear of being left behind. She likes curl up next to you on the couch and sit in your lap.

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-23-00132Henley (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My partner and I rescued a Shih Tzu in October. He is about 3 years old, healthy, active, playful, and generally a great little dog. He's large for a Shih Tzu--about 22 pounds--but not overweight...just more the size of a small breed than a toy breed. He is housebroken, pad trained, and knows how to sit, lay down, wait, etc. He does not do well with cats or small children, so we cannot keep him. He must have had some past trauma because he takes a few months to warm up to people. Once he does he's sweet and snuggly and loves to sit on laps, but it has to be on his terms. When someone reaches and it is unwanted, he growls. If the person does ... (Read More)not back off, he snaps/bites (hence why he would not be good for children). If you respect his boundaries, he's a great pet. He's 95% easygoing and just needs someone who has patience for the 5% when he is not. He is generally good with dogs; however, there have been a few dogs (mostly unneutered male dogs) that he has behaved aggressively towards. He loves to tug, chase balls, go for long walks, and rest in the sun, and is overall a good pet for someone. Probably best with a 1-2 older adult household with no kids. (Less)

    Kanna is a very friendly, loving, dominant, spayed 2.5 yr old female who is social and wonderful with young kids, older children and adults! Kanna is crate-trained, knows and responds to approximately 30 commands, runs and walks in a heel position. She is a joy to have as part of our family but sadly, we cannot keep her as she is incompatible with our 8.5 yr old female AB. We have had Kanna since she was 12 wks old. We also have 2 cats whom Kanna is friendly with but she is a bit rambunctious with them. I highly recommend Kanna go to a home where she will be a happy ONLY. Thank you for considering our beautiful and very special girl...

Brussels Griffon    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    SCRAPPY IS BEING FOSTERED IN A PRIVATE HOME IN MILLIS, MASSACHUSETTS. Scrappy is an 8 year old, neutered male, 11.5 lbs, happy and healthy. He was surrendered to NBGR because his owner was moving and she could no longer care for him. Upon arrival to his foster home Scrappy was absolutely terrified and it took him several days to settle in to his new surroundings. After several weeks in his foster home he remains a skittish, concerned fellow. He has grown to trust and love his foster mom and likes to sleep on the pillow next to her head!! Scrappy will need a calm, patient new home that will allow him to warm up to new people on his own ... (Read More)terms. He has lived with children but we would like to see him go to a quiet, adult home. Fenced yard is A MUST !! Scrappy is doing great with housetraining, is crate trained and loves going for walks on leash. He has been great with his other small dog foster brothers and sisters. Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello I'm Tarzan :) I'm a handsome 3 year old boy looking for my forever family! I was found as a stray and spent four long months in a Worcester shelter. While I was a favorite with the staff, the stress of the kennel was just too much for me. Thankfully, I've been moved into a foster home and am now enjoying the comforts of quiet living. A warm bed, full meals, and a regular cuddle buddy are significant improvements! I guess you could say I'm a 70lb surfer-dude with a go-with-the-flow attitude. I just take life one day at a time. Right now, I am exploring my interests. So far, I've found that I love rubber balls, playing hide-and-seek ... (Read More)with toys, and taking long walks with my human friends. With the help of a harness, I am learning not to pull when I go out....but sometimes it's hard because I just get so excited!!! I haven't tried jogging yet but my foster mom promised to take me soon. Honestly, I think I'll make a perfect running buddy...hunky, strong, and quick :) Since leaving the shelter, I have shown a lot of interest in other dogs but my excitement can sometimes be overwhelming to others. My foster mom is helping me to approach my playmates in a more relaxed fashion but it would probably be best for me to be the only dog in a house with older kids and/or adults. I am fully housetrained and food/toy motivated. For a cookie, I will gladly show you how nicely I can sit as well as the other commands that I am still working on (like down, stay, heel, come, and wait). I have always been well-behaved in the car. In fact, if you look into the back you might see me practicing my surfing skills...even when the roads are rough, I can maintain my balance on all fours while I watch the scenery go by. Right now, my favorite destinations are the local parks, ponds, and of course, pet stores, where I like to pick out my own toys and treats :) At home, I settle down quickly. While I always enjoy playing with my people, I am a self-sufficient guy and can be content entertaining myself. Usually, I'll toss my toys around for a while, stretch out in some funny positions (doggie yoga), and then eventually curl up in one of my beds for a good long nap. At heart, I am a chill dude looking for a life long friend...could that be you???

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Aggressive 

    In October 2012 I 'rescued' this dog from a really bad environment. When we first took him it was suppose to be temporary but next thing I knew it had been a year. I am now going thru a divorce and my husband can't take him. So now I am making the effort to re-home him. He was about 4-6 months old when we got him. And we have had him for about a year and half. But I honestly dont know an exact age. He was not house trained and had really bad food aggression. He will still show aggression to my other dog from time to time, over a toy or treat, but has never showed it towards a person. He is house trained and sits by the door when he ... (Read More)wants to go out. Sometimes even if he doesn't have to go to the bathroom but just wants to play. He is crate trained and is crated when I leave the house, but sleeps with me at night. He is a great snuggler but is just as content down stairs on the couch if I let him. But here is the 'catch': I want to make sure he is going to someone who can take care of him FINANCALLY. I AM NOT ASKING FOR ANY MONEY TO BE GIVEN TO ME He hasn't had any shots that I know of and I have absolutely no paper work for him. I will bring him to meet you in your home. This way I can see what his new living situation will be like and how he reacts to it. If you decide you want him to me a new member of your family, I will want a vet to verify an upcoming appt before I hand him off for good. He will need rabies shots to get registered anyway; this is just a way for me to be sure he will receive the care we have failed to give him. He is a very smart and loving dog that deserves a good home. He is a barker when someone comes to the door, and we haven't really broken him of jumping all together but we have tamed it a bit. With him will go a collar, leash, and large double door crate His name was diesel when we got him, but it really didn't fit, so we changed it to weasel, which is much more fitting to his personality. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have or interest in meeting him. He is a little bigger now than in these pictures but still has the same build. He is the brown one To make matters worse for this pup he now has a cut on his tail from wagging it too much and too hard. I know from experience with my older dog, that its hard to heal and usually just gets worse until it needs to be amputated. I only have Saturdays off from work so unless you are within 40 minutes of Spencer MA it will have to be a weekend meet. If you are over 50 miles away, a gas donation would be appreciated but not required. (I drive a 13mpg truck) CHILDREN: I have not had him around anyone younger than 7. He is a jumper and might knock small ones over. CATS: I have never seen him with a cat, or other small animals. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-12-00292Cal (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Cal was adopted but returned to ACDRA through no fault of his own. As you can expect for his age, he has a ton of energy which needs to be burned in order for him to be a happy member of the household. Also, being part hound, he is constantly using his nose. As a result he is very curious about what is up on counters, tables, etc. and loves to see what you are having for a meal. His Foster Mom is currently working on teaching him appropriate manners and boundaries when it comes to people food and areas. Cal gets along with small and large dogs that are friendly and playful. He currently goes to doggie daycare, both for social interaction ... (Read More)and to burn some of his boundless puppy energy. Should his adopter work or spend a number of hours outside the home on a regular basis, it would be his Foster Mom's recommendation to continue this so that Cal can get the needed social interaction and energy release for his age. Cal is learning to walk on a leash, and is doing very well. However, his nose sometimes gets in his way as every new smell must be investigated. His Foster Mom is currently using an Easy-walk harness which has helped greatly in his leash walking training, and she says he is a 'natural' at running and would make a great running buddy. Cal is currently enrolled in a dog Obedience Level One class and he currently knows basic commands: sit, down, touch, shake. It is recommended by his Foster Mom that this type of training be continued with him. Cal has a very good temperament and loves people, sometimes a little too much, as he can get excited to meet new people and will bark and pull toward them in order to say hello. This is something that is also being worked on through his Obedience class and by his Foster Mom. Cal is crate trained, although he will whine and fuss if he has to go out, or if he isn't tired/ready for bed. Usually allowing him to have a chew toy or marrow bone and letting him out will settle him down and he will go to sleep shortly there after. Cal is a very good dog who has the potential to be a great dog in the right home. His ideal placement would be with someone who enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, running, and/or walking. It is also highly recommended that any potential adopter continue his training in at least Basic Obedience. This will help Cal continue to learn through his formative teenage months and build a bond with his new family. Cal would make a great candidate for dog sports such as Nose/Scent Work, Barn Hunt, Agility, or Fly Ball. You won't be disappointed with Cal's capacity to learn and motivation to please. To apply for Cal, please fill out an application: http://www.acdra.org/adopt-app/ (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-12-00245Kora (female)

Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Kora!! Kora is a loving senior ACD mix. Mixed with what you say? Bulldog? Staffy? Wombat?!? We really aren't sure, and she really doesn't look ACD except in her cute face and the happy smile she wears all the time. Kora's age is estimated to be between 11 and 13 years old. But don't let that fool you. She is quite the little busy-body and makes sure she keeps tabs on the goings-on in the house; if you're moving, so is she! Once she knows the household routine she settles into days of sleeping and lounging with times for meals and trips outside. We don't have the whole story on Kora, but we think that she was kept in a crate for a ... (Read More)majority of her life. She came to ACDRA with very, very long nails and not a lot of muscle tone or balance. She has made great improvements in her short time at her foster home and now comes running with the other dogs when it's time to go out. Kora is currently living with three other dogs who can be quite bossy at times, but that does not faze her at all. She can appropriately read corrections and, typical of a granny, continues to toddle along going about her business without a care in the world. Kora is crate trained and housebroken. She can go all day (8 hours) in her crate without having to go out, and sleeps through the night as well. However, due to her past, she does much better being on a 'schedule' the rest of the time. She is just starting to give a signal when she has to go out, but it is very, very subtle and easily missed. Any new home should realize that there will be a period of 'getting to know you' in the beginning and there might be a bit of a backslide with her regarding house breaking. A set schedule will help greatly with this. Kora had some anxiety when she first came to her foster home. This is attributed to the fact that she probably did not get out into the world much at all, if any, in her old life and she was just overwhelmed. This anxiety manifested itself in pacing, licking of paws, and making what her Foster Mom calls her 'monkey noises.' However, after a short period she settled into her foster home nicely. She will still whine occasionally, but this seems more out of habit, just as she still licks her paws sometimes, which also appears to be more of a habit of her old life when she probably had to comfort herself. A verbal correction or redirect with a toy breaks this habit. Her Foster Mom also put her on a mixture of herbs to help calm her and deal with her anxiety, which is helping a lot. She will still exhibit anxiety in new situations/places but recovers quickly. Kora also did not have a lot of muscle tone and was a bit overweight at 33 lbs. She would get worn out on even a short walk, pretty quickly. With time this has improved and she has lost a few pounds. With regular exercise she will continue to improve, but because of her age, she will never be able to do really long distances. And she hardly ever makes the 'monkey noises' anymore, except when it's time to eat! Kora loves her food. Overall, Kora is a happy, healthy senior girl who is looking for a home on the quieter side to enjoy her days. She loves people; ALL people - women, men, kids. She just wants attention and to be loved. Kora gets along with all dogs and has been cat tested - both times she ignored the cats. She is up-to-date on her vaccinations and is spayed.

    I need to surrender my coonhound mix named Jack. He is such a sweet dog, but our house is not the right environment for him. I refuse to surrender him to a shelter. He was an abused hunting dog before we adopted him. Due to anxiety, he can't be in a kennel/cage/crate and would do best in a foster home with another dog and no kids. Someone with patience for this sweet boy is a plus. He loves to cuddle, play with other dogs and be outside. Please contact me immediately and please help!

He is learning all of his basic commands and he is very quick to learn. Ceaser loves to walk and it helps him burn off some of his puppy energy. While Ceasar really adores all of his caretakers at the shelter, he gets sad and frustrated with spending too much time alone in his run. He will make a devoted, loyal, and energetic companion.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Buster is a 1 year old dog who is full of life. He loves to go for walks and play with his toys, but can be downright mellow after a good walk. He is absolutely fantastic with other dogs, in fact, we use him at the shelter to model appropriate 'doggy etiquette.' Buster knows his basic commands, and is happy to do what is asked of him. He is a medium to high energy dog (still has some puppy energy), but with adequate exercise, he becomes quite calm. Buster is very enthusiastic to meet new people, especially when he is in his kennel at the shelter, but settles down quickly, and after a few minutes will offer up his belly for a good ... (Read More)belly rub, and maybe a quick kiss. Buster has been on several outings with staff, and does extremely well in the car. Buster even went to 'Bark in the Park' to see the Paw Sox play, and was a perfect gentleman among many people and dogs. Buster is eagerly waiting to go home. To see more of Buster, check out his video!

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Buckles is 6 year old Chihuahua whose elderly owner has been moved to a nursing home. Buckles has a lot of energy, as is typical of the breed, and quickly adapts to a day-to-day routine, especially if it involves going for daily walks! He is a cute boy, although a bit overweight (18lbs) at the time, but a regular walking schedule will take care of that. Buckles is currently being cared for by family members, but the environment is not the best for Buckles, as there are young children in the home and time doesn't allow for the walks and one-on-one attention Buckles needs. Because he has high energy and is craving human attention, his ... (Read More)rambunctiousness causes him to knock down the small children in this home. We do, however, feel he would do very well in a home with dog-savvy children over the age of 12. Buckles enjoys playing with squeaky toys and small stuffed animals. When Buckles lived with his elderly Mom and she was unable to let him outside for regular potty breaks, he was 'pee-pad' trained inside the home. However, with consistent training and exercise, we believe he will adapt well to being fully house trained, if that is desired in his new home. Buckles has been a devoted companion to his elderly human, and now, we seek a home for him where he can thrive and enjoy his adult and senior years, too. (Less)

    Scooter is a lovable, very playful 6-year old female pittie that is an owner surrender. UNTIL SOMEONE STEPS UP SHE WILL BE SITTING IN THE SHELTER. She has separation anxiety, and would do best with someone who only works part time, or from home. Is good with dogs her own size and larger that can tolerate rough play, but would be best in a small dog and cat-free home! Scooter deserves a place to lay her head and be loved and attended to.

Luckily, because of a thoughtful person who ultimately saved his life and contacted us, Riley will be living the good life! He is GORGEOUS, great with people, kids, and other dogs.. but not great with cats. He is looking for his forever family that will promise to love him forever.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Massachusetts
    Dogs can make good pets in Massachusetts if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!
