Dogs Adopted in March, 2017
Hazel, ~ 6 months Female Spaniel/Pom/Papillon
Click on picture to enlarge
Hazel and her sister Honey came to us from the Virgin Islands and are available by appointment after we receive your online application. They will be placed separately. They are six months old and weigh around 8-10 lbs. They are spayed and appear to be King Charles spaniel mixes, but the paperwork says Pom. It's probably Papillon. They are young and are still learning house training. No phone calls, please.
Hi there, My name is Homer .I'm an 8 year old, (oops, I'm actually 7 years old) Saint Bernard mix, or at least that's what I've been told. I have one blue eye so could be something else. What matters is, that I'm a lovable boy and a good dog. I love people and am very loyal. Don't let my age fool you - I can be pretty active. I like going for walks, running in the snow, swimming, and playing with other dogs. But I am also just as happy hanging out while you do your thing. I love to cuddle and will snuggle up to you when you're getting comfortable on the sofa. I'm looking for a new home because I was too protective of a toddler and went after one of the other dogs who growled at the toddler. I have never been a threat to people. I prefer to be the only male dog in the household at this point. Please give me a chance to show you how much happiness I can bring to your life.
JJ aka Trey, ~ 2 years old Female Treeing Walker Coonhound

JJ was adopted in November, but is back due to a relative's allergies. She had been renamed to Trey and probably knows that name. JJ is a sweet cuddly girl who loves toys and is ready to play at any time. She does best with another medium to large dog to play with. She is house trained and leash trained. JJ gets along fantastic with kids, cats, and other dogs! She is sweet and gentle even when she plays. JJ is such a fast learner. She still likes to gather shoes or personal items but we are tempting her with lots of toys instead. Her favorite past time is spending time with the grandkids. JJ loves to snuggle too. You have to watch her video:
She's very acclimated to a home and respectful of cats.
Hi there, My name is Julio and I was rescued from a hoarder who finally gave me and other dogs up when he became overwhelmed. Needless to say, I didn't get the good food and dental care that Chihuahuas need. I came into the shelter in heat but now I'm spayed and have had my dental cleaning done. I am available by private appointment as I'm in a foster home. I will want to sleep under the covers with you. I weigh a whopping 4.6 lbs, so no small children or large dogs, please. Please apply online and we will be in touch with you.

London is a one year old male Aussie/Sheltie mix who weighs 27 lbs. He is fine with all over handling and other dogs. He cannot be on an invisible fence, but will need a physical fence. He was neutered on March 10th. He will be available to be seen on Sunday March 12th, but he won't be able to do any dog introductions as he is still recovering from his neuter.. Please apply online if you are interested.

Louie is a nine year old 4 lb. Toy Poodle who was rescued from a hoarding situation. He looks so cute after his make-over! He's still quite thin and is in foster care being hand fed to fatten up for his neuter surgery and dental. His coat is already much whiter than when he first came in. His foster Mom tells us that he is making good progress and he loves his food! He gets along well with the other two toy poodles in the home. Louie is working on his housebreaking skills and will need someone who is home a good part of the time to keep up his training. Due to his size and fragility, he needs an adult only home where he gets the love and attention he deserves. Another small dog is fine. Louie came from a hoarder. He's going to be a wonderful little dog for the right adopter. No large dogs or small children as he could get stepped on. Donations warmly accepted to help with the dental and neuter. He can be met via private appointment once we receive your application. Thanks so much!
Mandy is one in a litter of 6 puppies who is from Indiana. She's just 8 weeks old, and absolutely gorgeous. The pups should be available on 2/25. If you're interested in adopting Mable or one her siblings please fill out an application at: http://saveadog.org/application.asp and keep an eye on the website for when they become available! We will not have "drop-in" showings for these puppies. An application in advance is required as well as a scheduled appointment. Please read the rules for puppy adopters on the Web application online as I'm too young to stay at home alone at this point in my life and I'm too young for daycare.
Hi! My name is Peyton and I am a very playful yet loving neutered male Hound mix. Unfortunately my adoptive family brought me back because my brother and sister (6 years old) were allergic to me. I am 13ish months old and fully housebroken and crate trained. I love kids and am great with them but could be a bit much for some due to my size. I would do best with older kids or kids who are used to dogs as sometimes I forget my size/manners when playing, I am still a puppy after all. No cats for me. I failed the cat test. I would do well with a large fenced in yard (my nose takes the lead sometimes) or someone who would like to bike or run with me. I also did well in doggy daycare and played nicely with all the dogs there, but no cats, please ! I appear to like the water so may enjoy swimming in the summer. I do very well on a leash but am interested in other dogs when we are out for walks. My favorite toys are anything stuffed, which I do not destroy, and any treat dispensing toys such as a Kong. I like to see what is on your counters/tables but listen to NO and get down when told. I am working on not being so interested in the counter but it all smells so good! As is par for my breed, I love lounging on the couch/dog bed after a day of activity and will snuggle with you in bed if allowed. I would love to be part of your family!
It helps the shelter if you fill out the application online before coming to meet the dogs. Don't miss out on a nice dog.
Sammy is a 3 year old adorable Jack Russell mix who weighs 10 lbs. He came from St. Thomas and was given up by his owner when the man's wife became ill. He's now neutered and ready for adoption. He has a lot of spunk and is a super friendly guy! He sleeps in his crate at night. He is a tiny ball of energy who wants to play. He has learned not to chase cats and could go with dog savvy cats. He just wants to play. Once you meet him you will not believe how cute he is. He could be a Jack/Rat which is a very popular mix. We are a small shelter and private appointments are limited to those who fill out the online application at http://saveadog.org/applytoadopt.asp. Please check the Web site for drop in hours as well.

Hi, My name is Spot and I came from a shelter in Indiana where I was a favorite. I'm a sweet gentleman who will make a great family pet. Want an easy-going dog? That's me.
I'm very gentle and especially gentle with children.
For example, I know not to jump up on people to say hello.
I love to play fetch and will return the ball or toy to you to over & over again to keep playing.
I will cuddle up with you when it's time to relax.
I do well with other dogs and even cats.
I look like a hound mix, but my personality seems more like a retriever.
I'm around 5 years-old and weigh 59 lbs. I'm cream with light tan highlights. .
Imagine a big old Lab who minds his manners and explores the yard during the day sits by your feet at night? Teddy is the perfect dog. He's a purebred Lab who recently turned 9 years old. He is a sweet dog who wants to please his people. He likes to wade in the pond and is fascinated with frogs. He will trot after his foster dad when the lawn is being mowed to see if any little critters scatter along the way. He likes to chase after a mouse or a bunny, but never catches them. Teddy will be best in a home without cats as he wants to chase them.
He's a happy boy who is content to sleep by your feet when you're watching TV or follow you around while you do your chores. Teddy is house-trained and has good manners. He has had some separation anxiety, but it hasn't been much of an issue with his current foster providers who are retired. He can be alone while you run errands, but not all day. Do you have room in your home and heart for him? He is fine with visiting grandchildren, but will run away from toddlers if they are too fast. Please apply online so we can arrange for you to meet him.Teddy is being fostered up in NH but will come down once he receives your application. No cats!
Hi there, My name is Tippie and I'm from the Virgin Islands, St. Croix to be exact. I'm 9 weeks old and full of playfulness. I was neutered at the shelter before I came here. I like to play with my toys. I am teething so may be too mouthy for small children. My foster mom says I'm an easy, quiet and cuddly puppy. Please read the rules for puppy adopters on the Web application online as I'm too young to stay at home alone at this point in my life and I'm too young for daycare. http://saveadog.org/applytoadopt.asp. Breeds indicated are an estimation only!

He loves to snuggle, He was recently neutered. He's such a sweet boy! Toby will not be at our Saturday 3/11 Meet and Greet. Sorry for any inconvenience.
