Martini is a sweet five year old Corgi/Chi mix who was left in a rusty crate in front of a liquor store. She is from Massachusetts! She was very frightened in the pound so Save A Dog was asked to take her and we're glad we did -- she is a sweet dog. She appears to be spayed; a tattoo was found. She deserves a forever and LOVING home!
Hello there! My name is Rocky. They call me Rocky II because there is already a Rocky at Save A Dog. I'm a handsome 20 pound Basset/Dachshund mix. I was found in Texas as a stray and a good Samaritan picked me up.Then I was living in a foster home with other dogs and a few cats before I made my trip to Save a Dog. I got along great with their other dogs, except for a very energetic collie who bounced all over me. I did my own thing when I was with the other dogs, but drank out of the same water bowl no problem. I chased one of the cats a little bit, but they were used to dogs and not bothered by it. I'm a low rider of low to medium energy. I mostly like to hang out with you. I LOVE squeakies of any sort. I'm not wild about the crate, but will go in it if you start me from Day 1. I'm 100% housebroken. I am already on the Fromm so please don't switch me as Fromm is the best! I don't have a history with kids, so teens and up would be best. Steep stairs would be hard for me because of my short legs, but a few steps, like 5, I can handle. I'm looking for a forever home to give me the love and attention I deserve! Please apply online at www.Saveadog.org if you're interested in meeting me, and then come out to one of our Meet and Greets!
Tucker is a young 8 year old neutered scruffy Terrier mix. At 43 pounds he is medium sized. Teens and up are best as we don't know of any history with children. He is reportedly fine with other dogs. Available after 4/25/17.
Sutton is a 4-5 year old neutered dachshund who weighs 11 lbs. He has the cutest face. He is a nice, friendly boy who is fine with other dogs. Teens and up recommended as we don't know his history. He is available after 4/25/17.
Daisy is a 7 year old Jack RussellTerrier who was given up by her breeder when she moved. She is good with kids and dogs, but we don't know how she is with cats. She was good with the grand children, but is not friendly with visitors until she can meet them on her own terms. She is getting spayed on 4/26 and will be available by the weekend.
Murphy, a Wheaten Terrier will be 7 years old on June 3rd, although his enthusiasm for life makes him seem more like 3! Murphy needs a home which understands Wheatens. A home with a fenced in yard, preferably with another docile, easy going dog, who likes to play. Murphy loves his yard and to play. He also enjoys daily long walks. He is house trained and knows his commands. He is crate trained, (or room trained), but make sure you give him a treat or he will let you know you forgot, with a strong bark.
Murphy has territorial issues with people coming up to the car or into his home. He will bark furiously and may even try to nip, however when he has been introduced to people outside he has been non-reactive and has shown none of those behaviors. He is trainable with someone who is consistent and positive. When company comes he is fine being put in a room with a treat and door shut. Then he can be taken out on a leash and introduced. With another dog we find it best meet outside, initially keep both dogs on leash and slowly allow to smell each other or even better, take them both for a walk together.
No cats or children. To help successfully transition Murphy into his new, forever home, his foster mom would be very willing to coach his new owners, teach and help problem solve around his special needs. He is a love and will bring great joy to the right home. He can be seen by private appointment after we review your application.
Kish was rescued from a high volume shelter in Afghanistan. A humanitarian worker rescued him and brought him to the states. She left Kish with her family, who unfortunately couldn't take care of him due to allergies. He is a very smart dog who has learned quite a few commands. He can Sit, Touch( touches his nose your hand), Down, Shake, and Wait. He is a high energy dog who will need plenty of space to run and play. A fenced in yard is required for Kish as he has a very high prey drive and we wouldn't want him to take off after a squirrel.
Chewy is an adorable little dog who would be best in an adult home as he can be nippy in new situations. He is a lot of fun and he loves other little dogs. He would be great in a home with other dogs. Chewy was grandma's lap dog and then the kids moved in and he became very afraid and nippy. This happened when he was still a pup and we've already seen great progress with the proper reinforcement. Chewy is shy with new people, but if you give him a few minutes he's soon on your lap. He does not like to be picked up, but would rather call the shots by getting in your lap when he's ready. Experience with small dogs is a must and a home without children is required for this sensitive soul. Chewy is available now.
Dixie is darling at 8 months. She's a beautiful Boxer mix female and weighs 41 pounds. She already knows Sit. She is fine with other dogs and with all over handling.
She has very soft fur. For families with kids, we're looking for teens and up as she can be mouthy when excited.

She is available after 4/11/17.
Hi there, My name is Lilo and I weigh 14 lbs. I'm the perfect companion for you if you want a little dog. I'm approximately 5 yrs old. I have wirey fur like a pig! I love my human and although I tolerate other dogs, I like to be the queen, so sometimes I'll chase the other dogs off of the bed, hee hee. Here's two great things about me: I'm housebroken and I won't destroy your stuff. I'll be available in mid-April. Please fill out the application and Save A Dog will be in touch. Foster mom says: Lilo currently lives with 9 other dogs. Eight are 20lbs and under and one 80+lb dog. She gets along with them, however does not play with them. She would rather sit by me on the couch and chill. She doesn't like to sleep in the bed ( which all of the other small dogs do), so she sleeps on on a dog bed on the floor in the bedroom. If a dog gets up in the middle of the night Lilo will chase them back up the stairs. She likes to be the boss! We haven't had fights, but I think she is just being "the keeper". Our dogs like to play and rough house and I think she thinks they are getting revved up to fight, so she will stand over them to make them stop. They ignore her!
Hi there, My name is Alyza and I'm a 5 year old spayed friendly Pitbull. I'm hoping I can find a loving home. Everyone says I deserve it! I am gentle with babies and toddlers. I lived with five children at one time, from infants to eight years old. My family used to prop the baby on me as a pillow. I lived with another small dog too. If you think you can adopt me, I will be your best friend for life! I'm obsessed with tennis balls, but I also destroy them so sometimes you have to hide them from me. I'm house trained. I sleep in my crate at night and I don't chew anything in your house during the day. I can get excited, but I also know how to "chill". I will destroy an occasional stuffed animal. I weigh around 46 lbs, but am losing weight due to my having to live in a kennel. Please give me a chance. I've always lived in a home and I don't want to spend my days in a kennel. A few months ago I had a minor ACL tear in my right hind leg, but after further evaluation the vet said I just needed chiropractic adjustments. I still have occasional chiro appointments in Framingham, which Save A Dog is willing to sponsor. Won't you please give me a chance?
FEMALE HOME ONLY! Adonis is a shy 2 year neutered male Lab mix who tends to bond with one or two people in the home so we're looking for a quiet home for him. He's afraid of men, so an all female house is what he needs. He came to us from St. Thomas, hence he considered as a "Coconut Retriever". He is a handsome lad who needs to find his forever home with the right adopter as he can take some time to get accustomed to new people. He's not a dog for a busy household as he wants his own people and does not warm up quickly to strangers. For his family, he is at ease and loyal and can be a lot of fun. He LOVES the water. Give him a chance to splash around in a lake and he will take it, but be warned you will get wet! He is very polite meeting other dogs of all sizes. He loves the beach and that's his element. He is in his glory when at the beach or lake. He loves the car and will jump in (and out!!). He recently mastered the “sit” command and he will amuse himself with squeaky toys.
He will chase a Frisbee, sticks and sometimes a ball and is working on bringing them back. A fenced in yard is necessary to keep him safe and give him access to the outdoors where he shows his zest for life. A dog friend would be great!. We know Adonis well and we welcome the opportunity to guide the special person who adopts him. You won’t be disappointed as he will be your forever friend for life.
Adonis is available to meet and will be shown by private appointment. Update: Adonis is heart worm free. Apply at www.saveadog.org
Leigha is a 1.5 year old Terrier mix who came into a high volume shelter with five other small dogs. She had her pups in the shelter and they were rescued when the pups were two days old. She has an underbite like a Brussels but is as tall as a Bearded Collie and slender in build. The pups are just weaned so she'll need another month before being spayed. She deserves to have a home of her own where she can finally live the pampered life she deserves. She used to chase cats, but not lately. She weighs around 25 lbs. She rides well in the car. She's good with other dogs, but we would like for her to be the princess. She will be adopted by the best fit. We are not first come, first serve. Applications are replied to, no emails or phone calls please. Local to Sudbury, please. Breeds are only an estimate. Available in April, but can be seen by private appointment before that date.
Princess is a gorgeous German Shepard/Collie mix from St.Thomas. She's an adorable pup who loves toys and bully sticks. She will be available starting Sat 4/15/17. If you're interested in adopting/meeting Princess please fill out an application online and come out to a weekend Meet and Greet! We show dogs from 12-3 on Sat. Closed Easter Sunday.
