Peluche

Peluche

Peluche is our 1 year old rescue from Costa Rica who was left abandoned on the streets. It was her lucky day when picked up by rescue friends days before LTCR team members were leaving Costa Rica. We had room for one more to come aboard with us. She greeted us with a wagging tail and a smile. We vaccinated her and tested her for heartworm and were all happy when we heard the test was negative! She pranced into our home, met our 3 other rescue pups and immediately made herself at home. She is about 20 pounds, we don’t know her mix, but we’re guessing terrier and Chinese Crested! She doesn’t shed, she’s housebroken, she has wonderful house manners, loves people, and kids!

Tink!

Tink!

Tink was an owner surrender because the owners were losing their home. They had no choice but to re-home Tink and when she arrived at the shelter, we were contacted for help. The owner took good care of Tink, including annual vetting, vaccinations, bloodwork and even had a dental done before surrendering her. We promised to find a good home for Little Tink. She is a 7-8 year old Jack Russell & Rat Terrier Mix weighing in at about 20 pounds. She is friendly with both big & little dogs (okay with males & females), and has lived with multiple other dogs of all sizes. Tink does not like to share a home with kitties. Tink has deformity of both front legs. When she walks,

Babes

Babes

Babes was found wandering the roadside in South Carolina in horrible shape. His fur had so much matting, it wrapped itself around his ankle area for so long, cutting off the circulation resulting in his paw barely attached. There were no other options but to remove his little paw. Notwithstanding his past, he remains a sweet little guy that enjoys people. He has recovered nicely from his surgery, cleans up nicely and is ready to find a family that will treat him like a little prince. He is 5 years young and has many years of love and companionship to give. His ideal home would be one that has many lap hours to give away and maybe one that enjoys a co-pilot on errands. He

Henry is our 8 year old fella that is now being re-homed after being rescued once from the shelter 2 years ago. He has been living with another dog and a lovely mom, but circumstances have changed and mom is moving to a place that Henry can not go. Instead of returning him to the shelter, we offered him a place in one of our foster homes until we find a forever, lifelong family where he will not have to ever be re-homed again.

Bug

Bug

My name is Bug and my friends call me a lowrider. I am a very sweet, snuggly kind of guy who will sit still for hours while you pet my face or belly. I prefer a lap or a bed to hanging out on the floor or in a crate, but I will go in a crate and I am good in one but its not my favorite place. I love to play with my buddy, Mini. We share toys, chase birds and enjoy wrestling and chasing each other around. And when we get tired we cuddle together for long naps- sometimes we even go in my crate together. I was abandoned at the shelter after being used as a breeder dog at a terrible

Wally

Wally

Wally is our newest senior to join our rescue. He is approximately 11 years old and sadly was brought to the shelter after his mom of many years was placed into an assisted living facility where they did not allow pets. The family of the mom did not want her dogs so brought them and left them at the shelter. We have a special heart for seniors and many of our foster homes do too. One opened right up for him both in South Carolina while he waits his freedom ride and here in Burlington, VT. Wally is a kind genteman, that loves his people and a lap to warm.

Mini

Mini

I’m Mini!- I am about 2 years old and I weight about 25 pounds and a mix of rather unknown origins- one of my years stands up, the other flops over slightly. I love warm beds and bacon. Until May of this year Mini lived her entire life outside- no one had ever touched her, ever held her or ever shown her love. She arrived at the shelter shaking and crying terrified to let anyone near. She would RUN to hide under her barrel to get away from people. She was so scared she had to be carried in and out of the house just to use the bathroom, but love changes everything and now Mini is a vivacious, friendly and outgoing dog. Now days

Holly

Holly

Our sweet and sensitive girl Holly was rescued from a shelter in the south where she stood no chance of being adopted as she is shy and fearful of strangers and had to be carried out of her kennel area, the only place where she felt safe. We do not know anything about her past or whether her fear is a product of neglect/abuse, improper socialization, or perhaps her makeup....it's most likely a combination of these factors. Now that she is out of the shelter and in a foster home, we have learned that with time, patience, and a quiet space to retreat to when she feels uncomfortable, she slowly warms up to her people, is gaining trust, and is learning how wonderful it is
