Porter is a smaller dog at about 40 pounds. He likes to ride in the car and is housebroken. He did not live with other animals but would often have play dates with other dogs and loved them. We are unsure how he would be with cats but right now they frighten him. Porter has lived with kids ages newborn and ... (Read More)up and loved them. How ever do to him being under socialized he may be better in a home with kids that can be patient with him until he can adjust to his new home. Porter is a great fun loving dog that will bring years of joy to who ever is lucky enough to adopt him. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Gemma. She is about a year old. We are not really sure on her bred but we are guessing Shepherd/Plott hound? Gemma is a great dog. She loves to go for walks and get belly rubs. Gemma has only one 'bad' habit she gets so excited when she sees people she jumps on them, this is why she was brought in after the people had her for only 3 weeks. Gemma wants everyone to know she is very smart and can be trained out of this. Gemma is to great too explain in words and can only be appreciated in person. Gemma seems fine with other dogs and may do best with older children due to her jumping.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Vermont
    Dogs can make good pets in Vermont 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!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost Vermont Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal. Dogs are red-green colorblind.
