April and May

These sweet, senior Dachsunds (most likely a mother/daughter pair) were surrendered to the shelter after their owner passed away. While they may have been very much loved in their former life, they arrived at the shelter in terrible physical condition and in need of extensive medical care to relieve their pain. After lots of TLC and nurturing in loving foster homes, these two sweethearts are in good health, are happy, getting lots of love and attention, and are finally ready to find a special family willing to open their home and heart to both so they can live out the rest of their lives together. Like mirror images of one another, they love to play, sleep, and explore the world together. Their foster Mom says

Burton

Burton

Burton is our approximately 5 year old little guy weighing in at about 15 pounds. He is a friendly social guy with his people, a little cautious with strangers, but willing to engage and learn to trust in a short amount of time. He is living with a kitty and does fine with him. We think Burton would like a slower paced home with a family who would like to share daily activities with him. He is a champion co-pilot and would be a great to take on errands. He also is very good on the leash and learning recall off leash. He enjoys daily walks, either long or short or both and would love to share a bed and couch with his people. If

He is very engaging, loves to say hi to everyone that passes by, two legged or four. He's quite good on a leash and would be an awesome hiking partner. He rides well in the car, has good house-manners although needs some continued work with counter surfing... 🙂 He is housebroken, takes treats so gently and politely will ask for more. We'd say he is a medium energy boy with still some puppy playfulness inside. Loves toys and snuggling on the couch. This boy is a very happy soul and would be very happy to be with a family

Ginger is our 3 year old beautiful, affectionate girl with a kind soul that has a little shy side to her. She engages nicely and trusts woman a little quicker than with the men, but with a kind, patient fella, she will become a good friend. Ginger has been in a foster home for a few months as she completed her heartworm treatment which she went through like a trooper. She has learned her basic house manners during this time, walks well on a leash and has earned free time in the home when left alone with her other two foster roommates. She would enjoy a large fenced in yard so she can play her favorite game of tracking critters and not worry about her

Roxie

Roxie

Roxie! This 5-6 year old girl was surrendered to the shelter when her owners no longer could take care of her. We think she’s JRT or Cattle Dog mix. This lady loves her toys, plays fetch like a champ and loves her walks. She is smart and eager to please. She would love to learn any new tricks and games you want to teach. If you are thinking about agility she could be a champ. She gets along well with dogs her own size or larger and wouldn't mind being an only dog to absorb all the attention and love from her family. She is very excited around kitties and most kitties would not appreciate her way of playing. She would thrive with a family

Izzy

Izzy

Looking for a beautiful, sweet, quiet medium sized girl....meet Izzy! She loves to be in the action and would make a great family dog. Izzy gets starry eyed when she sees kids and greets them gently and lovingly. She lived with three little kids while being fostered in South Carolina waiting for her ride to the Upper Valley. She enjoys other dogs and would be a good match for a playful younger animal. Izzy is food motivated and redirects very easily in the house and outside on a leash. She is a delightful walking companion in her no-pull front-clip harness and would enjoy going on a run as well. She enjoys poking around the fenced back yard and comes when called. Izzy spends her days

Buffy Bear & Coyota!

Buffy Bear & Coyota!

We have a very special Mom and Daughter duo that due to unfortunate circumstances with their owners, had to be surrendered to the shelter with the hope that they would be kept together during their transition. We promised them rescue after 2 days in the shelter and promised that we would find them a home together. They are now being fostered in Essex, VT where they have settled in really well. They are a fantastic pair, easy keepers, very fun to be around, love to cuddle and they even love to go on some short hikes! They are social, engaging, learning off-leash skills and enjoy being co-pilots. They would be great office companions, or a retired couple’s faithful friends. We are looking for a home

Andrew

Andrew

Our boy Andrew has finally available for adoption! Whatever family adopts this boy is truly going to have one special companion! He is kind, he is gentle he is a wonderful soulful guy. He is also a true survivor, entering the shelter as a stray with ringworm. Having to be in isolation, in the loud shelter for 3 months and then developing pneumonia. As soon as he was cleared from ringworm he went into a foster home in South Carolina and started his heartworm treatment. Through all of that, Andrew remained calm, cool and collected. Everyone who meets Andrew falls in love, and everyone Andrew meets he equally loves back. After six months of treatments for his ailments and six months of so much love

Sherlock

Sherlock is a handsome full-blooded Treeing Walker Coonhound who loves people and other dogs. He is a big boy but very sweet, affectionate, gentle and walks nicely on a leash. He loves going for walks and investigating all of the smells along the way. His sense of smell is outstanding! With some training he could excel at tracking, search and rescue work, or “nose work” competitions. Sherlock is crate and house trained, eager to please his humans, and learning some basic obedience and house manners. He is also content to snooze or chew a bone in his crate while the humans are busy. Sherlock’s foster family says he's a Big Boy with a heart of Gold, VERY, VERY LOVABLE, and he gives Many, Many Kisses

Daisy

Daisy

Daisy is a super affectionate, loves snuggles and petting and hanging out with her humans. After a good morning workout she settles down nicely, preferring to lounge on the couch or recliner. She is a fairly confident girl, well-socialized, and friendly. Her tail is frequently wagging, as she greets life with energy and enthusiasm. She would fit right in with a family stocked with children and other dogs. She will happily snuggle up with kids and will even respond to their commands. She is learning to settle nicely in her crate at bed time and catching on quickly to basic obedience and house manners. In a home that will continue to give her love, attention, and regular exercise this young girl is well on her
