Save A Dog - Available Dogs
Saturday, September 23, 2017 11am-3pm Join us at Buddy Dog Humane Society's annual Woofstock, at the Hudson Elks Pavillion! An outdoor event for families and their dogs. Save A Dog will have a booth there, and will have some dogs who are up for adoption. For more information, go to www.buddydoghs.org. Come by our booth and say hello!
Uno is a Cairn/Brussels/Lhasa Apso mix from St Thomas. He was evacuated off of the island in between hurricane Irma and Maria. Even though he has been through so much you would not know it. He is sweet as pie and very playful. His earliest availability is 9/21. He will be at our shelter on 9/23 for meeting.
Gorgeous is a mixed breed from St Thomas. She was evacuated off of the island due to hurricane Irma. She's had a rough life, as the burn marks on her body indicate. She's also heart worm positive so will be looking for a long-term foster home or foster-to-adopt situation. A stay-at-home or work-from-home with a fenced in yard would be ideal as she's a little nervous right now. For example if you move towards her too quickly she'll cower, which is reasonable after the trauma she has been through. For this reason a dog-experienced, adult home would be best for her. However after all of this she is still sweet as pie once she knows you. She can be seen on 9/23 at our shelter if you're interested in her. Donations for her treatment are warmly accepted.
Hi there, My name is Mike and I am a male Retriever mix. I was airlifted from St. Thomas just before the latest hurricane hit. I need to gain some weight and I need to be treated for heart worms before I am considered adoptable. You can met me on 9/23 at the Save A Dog shelter from 12-3 if you're interested in me. Foster-to-adopt is a consideration.
Hi there, My name is Mickey and I am a sweet female Sheltie mix. I was airlifted from St. Thomas just before the latest hurricane hit. I need to gain some weight and I need to be treated for heart worms before I am considered adoptable. You can met me on 9/23 at the Save A Dog shelter from 12-3 if you're interested in me. Foster-to-adopt is a consideration.
Sebastian is 2 year old German Shepherd from the US Virgin Islands. He was evacuated off the island to Virginia due to hurricane Irma. Save A Dog drove down and picked up as many dogs as we could fit into our van. Sebastian was part of the lucky group. You would not know that he has been through such trauma though. The whole ride he was silent and never made a mess in his crate. He is good with dogs and people. We recently found out that back on the island Sebastian was a canine officer's dog. So he is very well trained and gets along well with everyone. He needs to gain weight and be treated for heart worm disease before he can be officially adopted. We will consider foster-to-adopt for the right situation. He was not raised with small children so teens and up is a requirement. He is at our shelter and will be shown on 9/23 from 12-3 and 9/24 from 1-3.
Willy is an adorable 9-12 months old Jack Russell Terrier/Corgi-sized mix who just wants to play. He is all about fun, fun, fun. You would never know he has just been through such an ordeal because of loss of home, loss of his family and being transported many miles away from his birthplace of St. Thomas. He likes to play, doesn't like to be picked up. Teens and up would be best. His earliest availability is 9/21.
Don't miss out on this beauty! Bitty is a 4 year old female Min Pin mix. She weighs close to 20 pounds. She is good with other dogs and is fine with general handling. She arrives from WV on 9/16 and will be available on 9/19. Bitty Video: https://youtu.be/HxhmsTAHW1g.
She will be spayed prior to adoption, if she's not already spayed. Bitty has been sneezing so we are not showing her at the shelter. Private appointment only as she is in foster care. yed his neuter and are not showing him at the shelter. Private appointment only as he is in foster care. We cannot introduce her to other dogs at this time so a home without other dogs would be best until we're sure she's not contagious.
What a cutie! He is much smaller than he appears in his pictures. Copper is a 2 year old Beagle boy who weighs 22 lbs. He is good with other dogs and over all handling. He will be here on 9/16 and will be available after 9/18. He will be neutered prior to placement. Copper Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPiJPVpzaTM&feature=youtu.be and you can see from the video he is a bundle of puppy energy! Copper has been sneezing so we delayed his neuter and are not showing him at the shelter. Private appointment only as he is in foster care. We cannot introduce him to other dogs at this time so a home without other dogs would be best until we're sure he's not contagious.
Tallulah is a one year old female Retriever mix who was displaced due to hurricane Irma. She is a sweet dog but is full of puppy mouthiness so not a match for kids or seniors. She would be a great dog as a playmate for another adolescent dog or for doggy daycare. She loves to play! Available after 9/21/17.
Jezebel is a small eight pound Chihuahua/terrier mix from St Thomas. She was evacuated off the island to Virginia due to hurricane Irma. Humphrey and Jezebel are a bonded pair that were dropped off at the St Thomas shelter the day before the hurricane hit. These poor dogs have been through so much in the last week. They however are both very sweet and like other dogs as well as people. We hope someone will adopt both of these dogs as they've been together their whole lives. They are available after 9/21 and we're not positive they are neutered so we may have to have their surgeries prior to adoption.

Hi, my name is Hermione! Harry, Ron and I all came from a bad hoarding situation in MA. There were so many dogs where I was that I never really got any human attention, but now that I'm in a foster home I've blossomed. I'm completely house trained and crate trained, although might have a set back in a new home. I need a fenced in yard as I will not go to the bathroom while on leash. I'm the bravest of my siblings and I come up to people wagging my tail and sniffing curiously. I think teens and up would be best for me because quick movements and loud noises sometimes still scare me. Another dog would be ideal as I can learn from a more confident dog. I'm curious about cats, but would never hurt them. My foster mom says I need a "dog savvy" cat who will hold her ground. If you think you can provide the right home for me please fill out an online application and come visit me! I'm adorable. I will be at the shelter on Sat, 9/16.
Hi there, my name is Harry! I am a little shy boy and would probably do great as a friend for another dog. I am GREAT WITH CATS! I ignore them. I need a fenced in yard to do my business as I feel too embarrassed to go on leash. I came from a bad hoarding situation in MA. I can be timid, but I haven't growled or snapped at people at all and I let my foster mom pick me up. I love belly rubs. I would enjoy going to a home with another dog. It is not a must, but this dog would help me to become more comfortable in your home more quickly. I would also do best with teens and up as younger children will not be experienced enough for me. If you think you would be a good match for me please fill out an online application and come meet me! I have a gorgeous, shiny black coat. I will be at the shelter on Sat, 9/16.
Hi there my name is Tigger! I am around 8 years old. I've lived in a home my whole life, so I am housetrained and use to being in a home. My previous owners also taught me how to sit and roll over. I love toys and can play with them forever. The best are the soft squeaky ones. I love going for car rides. I will hop right in! I also love swimming. It is a great way for me to cool off with all my fur. The people at Save A Dog have also been telling me that I have the softest coat. It is a nice auburn reddish color. I can be a little uncomfortable around larger dogs. I have a mass on my rump. It doesn't cause me any discomfort. Save A Dogs holistic vet Dr. Roman of MASH in Hopkinton is going to help me. Besides the mass I have a clean bill of health. Up to date on all my vaccinations. If you think you're the right fit for me please fill out an online application at saveadog.org.
Beau is a tiny 4 month old Toy Poodle that we're listing as available, but right now he has a skin issue that we are continuing to treat.. He has hair loss on his face and body and it scabs over. We're trying a holistic approach combined with conventional medicine. Please pray for the little guy and donations are warmly accepted.
Hi there, my name is Alyza and I'm a 5 year old spayed friendly girl. I am gentle with babies, toddlers, and dogs. 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 share my space and my bed readily with other dogs. I grew up with a small dog and am being fostered with 3 other dogs. If you think you can adopt me, I will be your best friend for life! I know sit, stay, and paw and I understand just about everything you tell me. 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 weigh around 50 lbs. Nothing makes me happier than being with my people and chewing on a bone or a tennis ball. Please apply online at http://www.saveadog.org/applytoadopt.asp so that I can meet you. Since I am in a foster home, please call to arrange to meet me after we get your application.
Little Buddy is a neutered male beagle. He weighs 25 lbs. He will be here on 9/16 and available on 9/18. His video is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_a8jQGFhl8&feature=youtu.be and you can see how sweet he is. He is so sweet! Buddy's foster mom says, "Goes into his crate at night no problem- loves his walks on leash - eats like a champ. Never had an accident. Car rides no problem. Strong prey Drive so don't know about cats. Fine with my big dog."
Holly is a 7 year old spayed Border Collie/Papillion mix who is diabetic. She is underweight at 24 lbs. and is on Vetsulin. We'll have her worked up at the holistic vet, but for now she needs injections twice a day. She is gorgeous, with one blue eye and the softest coat. She has no behavioral problems, is fine with other dogs, kids, and cats. She lost her home simply because of her health condition. Won't someone give her a chance? She will be vetted on 9/18 and available soon after.
