  Joker, 15 weeks Male Retriever/Shepherd  Mix

Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

Hi, My name is Joker and I'm a 3-4 month old Retriever/Shepherd puppy. I love to play with toys and with you. I am working on house training and learning to accept the crate. I lived with dogs, both senior and large breeds and I am respectful of all. I am curious with cats, but I don't bother them at this stage in my life. I am still working on “down” and “leave it” but I know SIT! If I think I am going to get a treat you don’t even have to ask me to sit! I am looking for a family that will give me the time and attention that I need. If you work full time then I would be awfully lonely sitting in a crate all day. Please don't do that to me. I can take a couple hours tops, but not 3 or 4 at my age. Thanks for being considerate. Only 1 in 5 puppies stay in their original home so please don't be mad at Save A Dog for trying to do right by me and getting me the best home possible.

Available On: 5/30/17

Apply To Adopt

Lyle is a 50 pound male yellow Lab/Husky mix who is around 8-9 months old. He's was very shy when he first arrived, but he has come along ways. His brother, Ezra, was much shyer and already got adopted and is doing great. Now it's Lyle's turn. He needs a securely fenced in yard (physical, not electric) If you are looking for a friend for your dog, he would be great. Eventually he will be able to have outings like a normal dog, he just needs time right now. He is from farm country and did not see a lot of people, but he doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body. Please fill out an application if you're interested in meeting him this week. You won't be disappointed.

Available On: 6/21/17

Apply To Adopt

Hi there! My name is Emmett and I'm a handsome Retriever mix from St.Thomas. I love to wrestle and play with my sister Emma. I am a bit shyer then my sister but I still come out of shell very quickly. Young pups like me need lots of time and attention, so someone at home full-time would be an ideal match for me. I need to get out to do my business and play every 1-2 hours right now. If you want to meet me, please fill out an application at and come out to a Meet and Greet!

Available On: 6/19/17

Apply To Adopt

Scooter is an adorable 4-5 month old Italian Greyhound/Rat Terrier mix (we think). His foster said, "He only barked once when he heard my neighbor come home. He likes to be up high on the back of a sofa, on his perch, so he is able to see everything. He is extremely curious. He likes you to be with him when he eats. He's a little shy at first, but warms up quickly. He's a friendly little guy. He sleeps all night in his crate." As with any puppy he will need training and plenty of attention throughout the day.

Rumble   Rumble

Available On: 5/23/17

Apply To Adopt

RUMBLE WILL NOT BE AT THE SHELTER ON SATURDAY 6/22. Application is required for this event. Rumble is a neutered male 1 yr small scruffy Scotty / Schnauzer mix. We're told he's a fiesty playful fella! In home with dogs of various sizes + cats. House trained and will go into his crate if treats are involved. He doesn't bother the cats, but keep the litter box away. He's more interested in playing with dogs than with toys and he likes to play "rough and tumble" and would aggravate an older dog. Doggy daycare would meet his needs for doggy activities. He can ride in the car nicely now and goes to Maine regularly with his foster family. He is unknown with small kids and might be too rough so teens and up are advised. Please fill out the application before contacting us. Rumble is in a foster home with several other small dogs. He is available to be seen immediately and is looking forward to meeting you.

  Dandelion, 2 years Female Labrador Retriever  Mix
Dandelion   Dandelion
Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

Dandelion is an amazing dog who came to Save A Dog and had her puppies the next day. She is a bit of a celebrity here, so we've been holding out for the absolute best home. She's 2 years old and sleeps in her crate at night. She's still young, so will go after a shoe or something if she is left to her own devices. She loves car rides and she travels to Block Island with her foster mom quite frequently and rides the ferry like she's done it all her life. She loves to run on the beach. Dandelion has been living with another female Lab and they have been best buds. She would love another dog or to be with her person during the day. She has rarely been alone so it would be difficult for her to go to a working home. She's very playful and likes rough and tumble so would be too much for an older dog or a smaller dog. She can be shown by private appointment once we receive your application. We're looking for a very special home for this special dog.

  Alyza, 5 years Female Pitbull Terrier  Mix

Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

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 and am being fostered with 3 other dogs. 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. I am in a foster home with 3 other dogs and I get along with everyone. I am tennis ball crazy and nothing makes me happier than chewing on a tennis ball. Won't you please give me a chance?

  Nyla, 6 years Female Husky  Mix
Nyla   Nyla
Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

Nyla is a six year old spayed female Husky mix. She has lived in one home since she was a puppy and a change in her adopter's working hours has her spending many hours home alone. She is looking for a new home. She loves being pampered, from getting pets to even taking a bath. She loves being outside, roaming and sniffing or just laying in the sun! She is very friendly and curious, she hasn't met a dog she hasn't gotten along with. She'll play but is just as happy being around a calm dog. She does take time to warm up to someone but once she does she'll always remember you and be fine around you. Otherwise, patience is key, gotta let her come up to you. She really is a sweetheart, but just know that she kinda does things on her own terms, she may want to cuddle some days, others she may find a secluded spot by herself. I really think she has a huge heart and just wants to be loved. The owner said she hated cats, but she's being fostered with a cat right now and is great, so maybe it depends on the cat. Due to a condition that she's had since birth, her head often wobbles and she sometimes loses her balance. However, she's learned to live with this and functions very well. Come meet this wonderful dog!

  Adonis, ~ 2 years Male Lab/Shepherd  Mix

Click on picture to enlarge

Available On: Private Appointment

Apply To Adopt

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 has lived with other dogs and would love a break from being part of a pack, so an only dog home would suit him just fine! 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

Adoption in Progress

Barney is a fun-loving, super friendly, playful one year old dog. He weighs 21 lbs and likes to play with dogs big and small. He's bounce his way into a new family -- he knows how to settle down with an antler or bully stick too. We are not sure of his mix, but based on his size and appearance he likely has a healthy mix of whippet/sight hound and perhaps some jack russell or parson terrier. One thing is for sure - he's an affectionate guy who will win your heart!

Adoption in Progress

Martini is a sweet five year old Corgi/Chi mix who was left in a rusty crate in front of a liquor store in a seaport town in Massachusetts.

She deserves a forever and LOVING home! UPDATE: MARTINI IS HEART WORM POSITIVE SO IS NOT AVAILABLE NOW.
