Blossom

Adopted

Blossom is a 1 year old Jack-a-Poo (Jack Russell / Poodle mix) who is ADORABLE and so much fun. When excited she can jump into your arms. She is great with women and children, but doesn't seem to like men, so she is not the dog for everyone. She might be best as a one owner dog. We received her from a NJ shelter after Hurricane Sandy. We put her in a foster home with a woman who works as a nannie and she did great. Nannie says: She has been great with the kids. Loves to be pet and have her belly rubbed. She appears to be housebroken. She is doing well with the crate. She will go in fine at night and will go in during the day with coaxing with treats. She has a ton of energy and LOVES to play with squeeky toys and balls of all shapes and size. She could probably fetch for hours (we are still working on leaving the ball but if you have two she will bring one back, drop it and chase the next). She tends to be vocal and will alert you when she sees people or when people first come in the house / if she hears strange noises. She will sit for treats and we are working on sitting quietly before getting food. She has tons of energy and would do best with an active and playful adopter.She plays great with small dogs, but of course like any small dog, she is afraid of some of the bigger dogs. Please fill out an application online or come in to meet her during our visiting hours.

  Bonnie, 9-10 months Female Flat-coat retriever  Mix
Bonnie
Bonnie
Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Bonnie is a beautiful Flat-coat Retriever, we think. She is about 9-10 months old, but only weighs 26 lbs, so could be mixed with something smaller. She is spayed. She looks big in the picture but she is a medium sized. She is a great dog, sweet as can be, She was found with Clyde at an abandoned house. She likes to be with you but not on top of you or in your space, if you are busy she will just lay somewhere nearby. She is very quiet and is housetrained with a dog door. She is not a dog to sit home alone while you are at work, however, as she is a young dog who has exercise and training needs. She has not been cat tested but has a gentle temperament so would probably be fine with children or seniors. She is not a dog park dog or a doggy daycare dog as she doesn't like other dogs jumping on her. She has no patience with her side-kick Clyde sometimes. She walks on her leash and rides well in the car. She is available 12/8/12 and will be at Petco Natick from 11-1 PM and at our shelter on Sunday from 12-3 (if she's not spoken for on Sat). Please fill out an application if you are interested in adopting Bonnie.

Boy
Boy
Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Meet a dog named Boy (yes, you can change his name). Boy is a very sweet, laid back one year old Lab/Hound mix who was raised with kids. He is a very good boy who rides great in the car. He would love a family. He is great with other dogs, unknown with cats, and he's neutered. He is arriving from WV around the end of December and will be available after a brief quarantine. If you have children, we require a fenced in yard. See our guidelines under http://saveadog.org/applytoadopt.asp. His foster mom says about him: Boy is a very big, very sweet, dog. He is very friendly with everyone and follows the family around to see what is going on. He would love to be up on the couch snuggling,and tries every angle to get there, but we are trying to discourage this. He would love a big soft fluffy bed of his own. He likes to chew his toys and roll around on his back on the living-room rug. He seems to be housetrained and has not had an accident inside. He cried a bit when we crated him at bedtime, but then settled down and slept through the night. He is very tall and can rest his chin on your dining room table or countertop if there is something interesting up there. He has not chewed through anything he should not so far (except for his leash). He is gentle around the kids but tried a jump up on the adults a few times. A very nice dog! He is available as of 12/23.

  Brutus, 1 year Male Chihuahua  Mix
Brutus
Brutus
Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Brutus is a little male who needs our help. His family brought him to an overcrowded shelter to be put to sleep because he and his mate and puppies were "too much work." Brutus is a tiny dog with one leg out of joint. It turns out he broke his leg a year ago and he was never given medical attention. Brutus deserves so much better than this so we are giving him the medical work up that he has been waiting for all this time. Imagine the pain this poor dog has been through. He will eventually be put up for adoption. He weighs 14 lbs. and his little tail never stops wagging. In the photo on the bottom, Brutus is pictured on the right, with his mate on the left. UPDATE: Brutus has had a full work up of his leg and as he has a little hip dysplasia on his left hip, the vet opted to leave the bad leg since he seems to have adapted to walking on it and is not in any pain. She kept him overnight and did the neuter and pulled a broken tooth. Poor little guy has had a rough life but will soon be somebody's baby. Thanks for donating to help with his medical expenses.

Adopted

Callan is a 15# neutered male Tibetan Spaniel who came in from the Virgin Islands (St. Croix) where adoptions are very low and euthanasia rates are high.

He leaps straight up in the air to pounce on a toy.

It only takes five minutes to fill out and it helps us to speed the adoption process. There is no obligation to adopt until you meet the dog.

  Chopper, DOB: 9/18/12 Male Collie / Beagle  Mix
Chopper
Chopper   Chopper
Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

This is Chopper. He is 10 lbs and is almost 12 weeks old, the perfect time to leave his litter mates and join his new family. He is a good little eater and a very curious pup. Like many pups, he will get into things when nobody is looking. He is sweet and adorable, plays all day and is working on his house training. He will most likely be small sized, but who really knows what size he will be. But does it matter? Look at how cute he is. Puppies need a stay-at-home or work-from-home situation and are best kept safest in a fenced in yard, which is a requirement for adopters who have young children. The fencing we recommend is inexpensive and easy to put up and it makes caring for a pup so much easier. See our adoption application under Apply to Adopt, for details on fencing requirements. He will most likely be shown the weekend of 12/8/12. It helps the shelter volunteers if you send in your application ahead of time so we have a chance to print it out and have it ready your arrival. Thanks so much! He is available 12/8/12 and will be at Petco Natick from 11-1 PM and at our shelter on Sunday from 12-3 (if he's not spoken for on Sat). Please fill out an application if you are interested in adopting him. Apply at www.saveadog.org

He likes toys, but will destroy a stuffed animal. He will be flown here on 12/12/12 and after his vet visit on 12/14/12 he will be shown on 12/15.

  Colin, 13 weeks Male Great Pyrennes / Retriever  Mix
Colin
Colin   Colin
Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Colin is an adorably playful, gentle 3 month old large breed puppy. He is estimated to be part Great Pyrennes, part Lab. Like his brother, Sam, he loves toys, playing and romping along the waterís edge. They both chase cats, so no kitties. He is smart and doing well with house training, is learning the leash, but hasnít mastered it yet, so has to be carried if you want to go somewhere with him. He has a short slick shiny coat and big happy eyes; he likes to be among the big dogs and has lots of interest in the water and exploring his surroundings. Colin gets a bit car sick so maybe with lots of short trips he will overcome this. He is so lovable and waiting for the forever family he will call his own. He would love to have his forever family before the holidays. History: Sam and Colin are two Great Pyrennes puppies who were found by the side of the road in Indiana. Sadly enough, Colin and his brother Sam were left to fend for themselves on a cold, rainy night. Lucky for them a rescuer saw them, picked them up, and took them home. They were wet, muddy, cold, hungry and scared. The look in their eyes when they realized someone was showing them kindness was unforgettable. They ran to the woman as fast as their little legs could carry them and waited until they were picked up and placed inside the warm car. They have been the most enjoyable puppies and deserve a home filled with all they never had in the beginning of their young lives. If you already have an application with us, please just send an email to adoptions@saveadog.org. If you donít have an application already, then itís best to fill it out before you lose out. These pups will be shown on 12/15 and if not spoken for, then also on 12/16. Hours on weekends are 12-3 PM.

  Cooper, 9 months Male Plott Hound  Mix
Cooper
Cooper   Cooper
Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Cooper, ~ 9 months Male Plott Hound Mix. Cooper is a gorgeous honey colored brindle Plott Hound pup that is looking for a home big on love. This special boy was abandoned and when his foster parents found him, he was very malnourished. Cooper was taking care of another abandoned puppy (Darcy) and refused to leave his side. He wouldnít even eat until Darcy ate first. Now a completely inside dog, he is 100% house trained (would never dream of peeing in the house), walks well on a leash and knows how to sit and stay. He loves to spread out with a favorite rope toy or chew and snuggle. Cooper is a gentle, quiet pup that wants to please so bad his whole body wags with gusto. Heís still a youngster and needs kindness and lots of positive reinforcement. He gets along with all sizes of dogs and loves to play with cats and kittens. He would do best in a home that doesnít have an overly dominant dog, as heís super easy going and still developing his own personality. Even though heís fairly mild energy he needs daily exercise where he can get outside to run and play. This breed is very loyal and sensitive and needs to have a strong connection and stable home to thrive. He would not do well in a home where he was left alone a lot because he thrives on companionship. If you are interested in Cooper, please express your interest by email (if you have an application already on file) or by filling out the online application under Apply to Adopt. It only takes five minutes to fill out and it helps us to speed the adoption process. There is no obligation to adopt until you meet the dog. The application gives us a nice picture of who you are and helps us to make the right match. Once you fill out the application you can apply it to other dogs as well. He will be available at our Meet and Greet at Petco 11-1 PM on Sat, 12/8.

Dee
Dee
Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Dee Dee is a new arrival who appears to have some Lab and possibly some Beagle in her. She arrived at the shelter very scared. She came from a very over-crowded animal shelter in St. Thomas and a kind traveler brought her to Save A Dog for a chance at adoption. She will blossom over the next few days and will be ready for her new home by the holidays. Her previous caretakers write: Dee Dee is a bit of a shy girl but she has a heart as big as all outdoors. She's never met a dog she didn't like. She would be a great pal for another dog. She walks well on leash and never pulls. She's working on house training and with consistency will have no problem. She's a soulful, special dog with absolutely no aggression in her, even when she's frightened. Please fill out an application on our Web site to speed the process. We also have drop-in hours on Sat and Sun from 12-3, but still require the application.

This is Dually.He was born on 9/18/12. Dually weighs around 7-8 lbs, is 12 weeks old and is tiny, but has a very solid stocky little body with short legs. He is glossy black with a little white on his chest and feet. He is a little love and has tons of personality. He plays all day with his siblings but manages to get in naps through out the day. He is very handsome. His pictures don't do him justice. He loves to have attention and be held, and is learning house training along with his litter mates. A dog door to a fenced in yard is the greatest invention. Please apply online if you are interested in adopting him and please understand that puppies require time (someone home) and training (puppy Kindergarden and basic obedience are required). He is available 12/8/12 and will be at Petco Natick from 11-1 PM and at our shelter on Sunday from 12-3 (if he's not spoken for on Sat).

  Fiona, 5 months Female Chinese Crested
Fiona

Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Fiona is just the most precious little Chinese Crested dog. She is deaf but not disabled. She knows at least 10 hand signals and is very smart. You wouldn't even know she was deaf. She is so sweet and is a real cuddle bunny! She is a hairless Chinese Crested, a much sought-after yet misunderstood breed. Chinese Cresteds need warmth so if you are trying to save on heating bills, she is not the dog for you. She would do best with another dog as a companion as she picks up on their cues and also loves to play. She really wants to learn more too! She would be a great apartment dog as she is little and is pee pad trained. She is a very smart dog and so very badly wants to learn! She loves to ride in the car, loves going for walks, and just love to play with other small dogs in her foster home. She sleeps in bed with her foster mom at night. She sleeps buried under the blankets and never moves until she gets up in the morning. She likes to cuddle up with other dogs too. She plays all day and takes naps by the heating vents as she loves the warmth. She needs a draft-free toasty warm place. Her current foster mom lives in an apartment and says: Fiona is such an easy girl to take care of. As soon as we got home, I put down puppy pads, and she went on them every time, not one accident. She's not clingy, but likes to be near me. She will go play with her toys and she loved exploring the house. Her personality is amazingly sweet. I'm so glad I took her home. If you are interested, please fill out an online application at http://www.saveadog.com/application.asp. She was just spayed so will not be at the meet and greet during the weekend 12/8 and 12/9.

Junebug

Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Junebug is a ~1 year old Collie mix who is coming soon along with her puppies, which appear to be mixed with something small. Junebug is not a very big dog herself so could have some Sheltie in her. She weighs 26 lbs. and is full grown. She is spayed. June Bug was a stray who was very very pregnant. Thank goodness some nice people found her as she had a multiple fractured front leg. She had her pups just a couple of days after she was rescued. She was an awesome Mom even with that cast on her front leg. She is healed (after about 10 weeks in the cast) but still has a bit of a limp that only seems noticeable when she is walking but not running, as she loves to play with the other dogs in the foster home. She should get better in time. She is not an alpha dog quite the opposite. She is a sweet and lovable dog she just loves to get and give love. She is calm most of the time laying on her back, but when play time begins she is there! She is a quiet dog, even when she's excited. She is crate trained and has only had a couple of accidents in the house. She seems to be a long coated Shellie mix so there will be shedding. This is a sweet and special little girl of 26 lbs. WE ALREADY HAVE SEVERAL STRONG APPLICATIONS FOR JUNEBUG SO WE WILL NOT BE BRINGING HER TO PETCO ON DEC. 8TH.

Keebler   Keebler
Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Keebler is a Pom mix tripod with the most easy-going and amazing personality. You would never know what this dog has been through to meet him -- we cannot sing his praises enough. He is around 2 years old. He was pulled from a WV shelter and had an old break that was never taken care of. He was transported into TN and had the injured leg removed. He gets around just fine, you would never know he was a new 3-legged dog. He can handle small sets of stairs with no problem. Keebler is house trained, quiet and mellow. He loves stuffed animals and running in the yard. His foster Mom has two dogs and two kids, ages 11 and 12. He is good with dogs, cats and children. He might be a little too fragile for little kids to lug around. Keebler walks on a leash and loves to go for short walks, he gets tired quickly only having three legs. He sleeps all night long in a crate, he doesnít make a sound and waits for his foster Mom to come down in the morning to let him out. Once you are friends he will try to talk you into holding him on your lap for hours. He is the biggest snuggler, but he doesnít demand attention. He is available 12/8/12 and will be at Petco Natick from 11-1 PM and at our shelter on Sunday from 12-3 (if he's not spoken for on Sat). We want to thank Country Canine Dog Daycare in Acton for holding a fund raiser to help with Keebler's expenses.

Kendall
Kendall   Kendall
Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Kendall, ~ 1.5 year Female Chocolate Lab Kendall is a gorgeous chocolate female lab with green/gold eyes. Typical of the breed this big girl is very athletic and yet total coach potato. She is a definite candidate for water sports, she loves the water anytime/any weather and will chase down tennis balls and drop them at your feet. She knows how to sit and lay down, is always up for a car ride, and walks well on a leash if sheís not allowed to pull ahead. She should have a dog savvy adopter, as her size will require obedience and structure. She is housebroken and will hold all night. Kendall is extremely gentle-natured. She takes food softly from your hand and treats can even be taken away from her. She gets on well with all sizes and breeds of dogs and would have a blast at the dog park. (She doesnít seem to be bothered by cats but because of her size caution should be used at first). But for all of her love of playing, truly her happiest moments are being near her foster parents. She greets strangers with a happy wag of the tail and would be great with kids. She would not do well left alone for long periods of time, isolated from the family. Kendall has a big heart and definitely needs to be an important part of a family. If you are interested in this dog, please express your interest by email (if you have an application already on file) or by filling out the online application under Apply to Adopt. She is available to be seen on 12/8/12 at Petco Natick from 11-1 PM and at our shelter on Sunday from 12-3† (if not spoken for on Sat).†

Adopted

Leroy is a very playful young Beagle boy. He is a SMALL and QUIET one year old Beagle. He was originally a stray in Indiance and taken to a shelter. He was great at the vet visit, handled beautifully and although he can be a little shy at first, he warms up quickly and doesn't seem to have any big issues. Leroy likes to play outside and sometimes he doesn't like to come in so if you adopt him, he would do best in a fenced in yard with a long leash he can drag so you can get him in easily. He can play by himself inside and doesn't bug you -- he will play with his toys. He weighs 17 pounds, walks well on leash, and is working on house training. He is a small dog so needs more outings for bathroom breaks than a large dog. He is being flown here on 12/12 and will be available to be seen on 12/15 and 16th from 12-3 at our shelter at 604 Boston Post Road (Rt. 20) in Sudbury, MA. An application online would speed the adoption process.

He is available and we would love to have you fill out an application as he is in a foster home and we can bring him out to meet you at the shelter once we know that he has interest. Thanks so much!!

She came here from the St. Thomas Humane Society where there is a huge pet over population. She is a cute dog, weighs around 20 lbs., and loves to run around and play. She and Dew are called the Dancing Dogs because of the way they prance around on their hind legs. They are getting spayed on 12/4/12. Her pictures don't do her justice. If you are interested, come down and meet her at our shelter during visiting hours. Filling out an application ahead of time helps us to speed the process.

Adopted

Phoenix is an adorably sweet purebred Chinese Crested puppy who was found -- guess where -- in a West Virgina shelter where dogs are euthanized for space. A friend of Save A Dog learned of it and raced down to get him for Save A Dog, knowing what a Crested-lover Shirley is. Phoenix is the perfect little dog and he was adopted by someone who had adopted a Crested from us years ago, who had since passed. Phoenix is doing great in his new home!

Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Princess is a beautiful 18 month old female Bully breed mix who has a lot to offer an adopter. She is a really smart dog who has had a lot of training. She is great with other dogs, in fact she lived with a Shih Tzu and has co-existed just fine with a host of dogs of all sizes. She has been recently fostered by one of our veteran volunteers who is a student at U Mass Amherst -- and Princess goes to all classes. As told by her foster: Princess is a FANTASTIC companion, who needs a dog-savy home. This necessity is not based on her being a bully breed, rather it is because of her intelligence. You see the same personality in working shepherds, labs, and goldens- ever loyal and constantly thinking, working to please. For what you put into this dog, she will give it back ten fold. Princess, like all dogs her size and age, needs a lot of exercise. She is a great running companion and will stay close by your heel even off leash. She is polite and playful with dogs, people, and children we encounter on walks through the neighborhood, on the beach, and in the woods. She'll greet you with a toy at the door, or wiggle with it in her crate, making you think she's been in there the entire time you were gone. She eats and sleeps in her crate without a fuss, and will readily run in on command. She also knows basic obedience skills, polite leash walking, and rides well in the car. She settles down to sleep in the backseat on long car rides and is a great errand buddy. She comes to class with me at the university every day, sleeping through lectures, research lab meetings, and work in an academic office. She wears a doggie backpack and carries her own water bowl, toys, and bones. She's well socialized, having experienced everything from packed busses to elevators. Princess is not a velcro dog by any means, but likes to stick around you. She's sweet as can be with goofy radar ears and a demeanor that will make you laugh every single day. Please fill out an application and we will be in touch with you within a few days. Apply at www.saveadog.org.

Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Reese is a 4 month old male Lab puppy who was turned in by his owner who said he was not good with men. So far he's been great with all the men coming and going at the shelter where he's at in Indiana. He is great with young children. He walks well on leash and loves to ride in the car. He needs a stay-at-home family, not a working family, or he would be miserable just sitting in a crate waiting for you to come home on your lunch hour and then after a brief break putting him back in the crate. That just would not work for this pup. Families with young children are required to have a physical fence, no exceptions. Reese will be flown here on Wednesday and have his second health exam on Friday before we put him up for adoption. Please fill out an online application as he will be a very popular dog.

Ricky is an adorably cute and playful Boxer / Beagle / Terrier mix who loves to play with his toys and chew on antlers. His foster mom says: What a good little boy, he's almost trained to go outside - you just have to watch for signs and I've got him on a leash so he's getting use to walking on a leash - he knows what to do once he's outside. Ricky has such an appetite - very good eater (3 times a day) everything looks healthy. He's such a love, like to give kisses. His feet are a big clue to his size and breed - I think the boxer quess is a good one. Puppies need someone home with them during the day and not more than 2 hours alone total according to puppy expert Ian Dunbar. Please be someone who has the time for him. He is too young for doggy daycare. Please fill out an application on our Web site and see our guidelines. He's an adorable pup who deserves a loving family. Available 12/27.

Meet Rocky! He is a tiny-sized (7-8 lbs) male pup who is 12 weeks old and just ready to leave his litter mates. He is very happy! He is always very happy; he makes you smile because everything is the most exciting thing ever to him; just your appearance in the room makes him so happy. He looks very much like his brother Dually, but his legs are not so short. He also has less white on his chest. He has been working very hard on his house training and would ask for lots of patience while he learns. He already is figuring out people like it when he goes outside instead of on the floor. He, as all the pups in this litter are well socialized and will bring nothing but joy to the lucky family that adopts any of these pups. He and his litter mates will most likely be available on 12/8/12. Please read our guidelines under Apply to Adopt on the Web site and fill out an application if you'd like to be considered.

Sam
Sam   Sam
Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Sam is an adorably playful, gentle 3 month old large breed puppy. He is estimated to be part Great Pyrennes, part Lab. He loves toys, playmates and romping along the waterís edge. Instead of eating his treats he will scurry off to hide them; who knows if he ever goes back for them! Sam has a fluffy soft coat and the warmest brown eyes. He will make some lucky family a wonderful companion for many years to come. Sam is doing nicely during his time indoors and he shows every indication of being easy and quick to master his house training skills. He does enjoy lots of time outdoors, but likes his naps on a soft doggy bed inside. He would love to have his forever family before the holidays. History: Sam and Colin are two Great Pyrennes puppies who were found by the side of the road in Indiana. Sadly enough Sam and his brother Collin were left to fend for themselves. Lucky for them a rescuer saw them, picked them up, and took them home. They were wet, muddy, cold, hungry and scared. The look in their eyes when they realized someone was showing them kindness was unforgettable. They ran to the woman as fast as their little legs could carry them and waited until they were picked up and placed inside the warm car. They have been the most enjoyable puppies and deserve a home filled with all they never had in the beginning of their young lives. Sam is the longer haired pup and Colin is the short haired. An application will help to speed the process.Sam needs a stay-at-home family, not a working family, or he would be miserable just sitting in a crate waiting for you to come home on your lunch hour and then after a brief break putting him back in the crate. That just would not work for this pup. Families with young children are required to have a physical fence, no exceptions. If you already have an application with us, please just send an email to adoptions@saveadog.org. If you donít have an application already, then itís best to fill one out before you lose out. These pups will be shown on 12/15 and if not spoken for, then also on 12/16. Hours on weekends are 12-3 PM.

Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Shea is a sweet, shy female pup who is very petite. She is very shy at first, but comes around when she knows you and then she turns into a lovable, sweet, kind girl. For the right family, she is going to be a very loyal and affectionate dog. Shea deserves a great home. She was dumped in an animal shelter "drop box" along with her mother in St. Thomas. Shea was recently separated from her mother and flown here with the hope of finding a permanent home. Shea needs a lot of love and TLC with an adult adopter or with a gentle, quiet family who has a fenced in yard. You will be her everything from day 1, we can promise. She will settle in quickly if there is another dog in the family, and a nurturing female dog would be her dream come true for this orphan child. You can meet Shea at our shelter at 604 Boston Post Road, Sudbury, MA on Sat and Sun from 12-3 PM (our visiting hours). An application ahead of time helps to speed the process.

Tiffany is the only little girl in the litter. She weighs 6-7 lbs. Born on 9/11, she is now approximately 12 weeks old.

She plays well, but is happy to explore by herself as well. She and her brothers are doing well understanding that it is best to do their business outside. She wiill go on a pee pad if need be.

Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Tito is a 6 year old, neutered male Miniature English Bulldog. His owners are relinquishing him due to health issues. He has been with one owner for four years. He is a sweet, sweet boy. He has never bit, growled or been aggressive towards anyone - or anything. He is great with adults, kids, other dogs and cats. He is obedient, loves walks, rides in the car and just being with people. He is on a prescription diet as he has some allergies. We recommend a raw diet eventually, but for now he is doing very well on the prescription diet and has no visible signs of skin issues. He is used to having a house with a yard, but recently lost that. Since being in the apartment, the owners have been experiencing some health issues that make it extremely difficult to care for Tito. Please fill out the online application if you would like to meet Tito. He is still with his owner, but can be brought to the shelter for you to meet.

Trace   Trace
Click on picture to enlarge

Adopted

Trace is a 2 year old male "tripod" (3 legged dog). He does not know that he is handicapped so shhhh, don't anyone tell him!. He runs, he plays, he climbs stairs, and nothing slows him down. He loves a little 9 lb. Rat Terrier ( Choo-Choo) who will be coming up soon to be adopted. He will lay on the floor and let Choo-Choo jump all over him. Trace gets along very well with the 3 cats that he lived with while in foster care. If they run, he runs with them and then when they stop he will look at them as if to say ' Why are we stopping? He loves attention ( but is not a nuisance about it). He loves his ears rubbed; when you stop he will gently take your hand in his mouth, like he is asking you to keep going! He's is very gentle! He sleeps on the floor every night on a big fluffy bed. He is house broken with a dog door; he has never torn anything up. He will follow you from room to room and lay down and wait for you to finish whatever you are doing. He loves to ride in the car, but needs help getting in. He gets excited when he sees his leash, but walks are a limited distance....Trace loves to run and play, and loves squeaky toys. We think he deserves a large yard where he can run his heart out! Trace is a victim of abuse, his owner sawed off his leg with a hacksaw when he was about 6 months old. He got tangled in barbed wire, and this was her solution. Trace was turned over to animal control, and he is now a happy dog on his way to Save A Dog. Please fill out an application if you are interested.
