Ciera

Ciera

Ciera is such a fun pup, people friendly, a sweet, happy girl, always with a smile on her face! She was found as a stray and brought to the shelter where she passed her cat test, was good with other dogs, and she was kid tested and approved by a junior volunteer. Ciera is in a foster home now where she is learning the ropes of living in a home, getting accustomed to her crate, working on housetraining, walking on a harness, and learning some basic obedience and manners. Ciera is an energetic girl who would love an active family that has the time to continue training and can give her outlets for exercise and play time. We think Ciera is an older puppy, not

BERTHA

BERTHA

BERTHA is our bright and brilliant 3 year old JRT/Whippet? mix! This lovely girl has been loved and raised by her family since 4 months old. She is a smart pup that has learned many skills including sit, sit pretty, touch, lay down, roll over, bed, stay, settle, paw through and over! She would be happy and excited to demonstrate her repertoire of tricks! Bertha's family recently had a child and even though the family did everything to prepare Bertha for a new addition, Bertha simply is not comfortable around the little kiddo and has become uneasy, stressed and not understanding how she fits in. This family hired trainers and have seen vets hoping for a solution for Bertha, but all have agreed that Bertha

GAIA

GAIA

GAIA! A Beautiful (2yr old) blend of Golden/Catahoula who causes heads to turn when people see her. She looks much like a Golden with many traits of Golden, but also has those mesmerizing blue eyes that catch your immediate attention. Gaia came to our Rescue after being left at the shelter (with a heart full of worms) and with her litter of pups to care for. We were happy to make arrangements for her to come to Vermont and into a wonderful foster home where she was able to properly care for and raise her beautiful pups! All her pups have since found wonderful homes. Gaia has been treated for and has recovered from her heartworm treatment and is now ready to find her own

MYLES

MYLES

You will not find a sweeter dog than little MYLES. This little guy is about 1 year old and is only 17 pounds. We call him our pocket sized lab. He is a shy guy, but with just a little coaxing and some good treats he warms up nicely. He is a big cuddler and loves to snuggle on the couch and definitely a good companion in the bed to keep you warm during the cooler nights! We think MYLES would enjoy another well adjusted dog in the home to help him continue to gain some confidence. He also does well with kitties. He would be good in a home with structure, lots of time to play games, and of course some time outdoors. He

Leo

Leo

Here is what the shelter had to say about our Leo…. he’s one of the sweetest dogs we’ve ever had at the shelter. He’s very quiet and laid back. He is a little timid on a leash. He just needs to build some confidence. He’s great with other dogs and he’s great with cats. He just really is a sweet sweet soul. I love him. I feel like he probably didn’t have the best life. He deserves to be cherished pet who knows what it is like to live inside of a house with a real family. Leo is out of the shelter and he is settling into one of our dedicated foster homes here in Vermont where he is receiving much needed love and

GABBY

GABBY

Meet Gabby- A stunningly beautiful Catahoula dog mix she features half blue/ half brown eyes, the softest blue and brown coat and an expressive and loving personality. Gabby is just over a year old and much like many other dogs in our southern shelters she didn’t get the best start in life. She and her 6 siblings were allowed to be mostly feral until they were 7 months old when they were brought to the shelter by a good samaritan. Unsocialized and fearful when she first arrived Gabby has been in a foster home since July. When she first arrived she was too scared to come out of her crate and fearful of all people. During the months in foster care she has begun to

Beignet

Beignet

Just like the famed French pastry found in New Orleans, this Beignet is sweet, rich (with personality), and has a dusting of powdered sugar on her nose. Beignet is a 50 lb, approximately 6 years old, brindle-colored mixed breed. She lived with a foster family in South Carolina who reported she was very good with other dogs and children. She arrived in VT on September 8th and has been fostered in a home with a resident male elderbull. Beignet is excited to meet all guests young and old and has enjoyed low-key slower-paced play with her elderbull buddy. Beignet does not jump, has a very polite greeting, rarely barks, and walks on a leash without pulling. She enjoys scouting for squirrels on walks (occasionally needs

GINA

GINA

Gina was born to a shelter mom who unfortunately died shortly after giving birth. Gina was immediately placed into a loving foster home where she was raised with kind people and doggie friends. Gina had an adopter waiting for her when she was old enough, but it because apparent that there was something going on with her potty training and continuous dribbling of urine. It took some time for the proper diagnosis and after seeing multiple vets and finally a specialist, we were excited to find out that this was a physical problem and not behavioral and was was treatable with surgery. Volunteers and Donors put together the funds needed for Gina to have her surgery which she went through like a trooper and the

ANDY

ANDY

ANDY is our lovely and oh so handsome, Chessie that has been turned over by his owners due to a change in family dynamics. This boy has SO much love to give and thrives when he can be around his people. He is excellent with other dogs, kids and people. He is housebroken, has excellent manners indoors and outdoors. True to the breed, Andy LOVES the water, he loves to retrieve and he loves outdoor adventure. He is 8 years old and has many more years of love to give, cuddles to be had, games to play and tons of fun in the water. What Andy really needs.... a true family of his own. He needs to know that he will not be abandoned again.

CARLOS

CARLOS

Young, happy and full of life! CARLOS is just under a year old and this boy is all about bringing as much joy to the day as possible. He is an exceptional companion, enjoys being with people as much as other dogs. He has been excellent off leash and on. He is smart, learning manners quickly and takes good social queues from other dogs. He is about 25 pounds and we don't think he will get much bigger, maybe he will fill out a little more as he matures, but he's a nice size for a hiking companion as well as a couch snuggler. He loves toys, balls and sticks. He would be an ideal friend for an active couple, or an active family with

Harper's Pups

Harper's Pups

Harper is another one of our amazingly sweet Hound mixes that was dumped at the shelter full of babies! We have been blessed with wonderful foster homes that take these Mama's and their puppies and give them a safe place to raise their family. Harper is about 35 pounds and gently engages for attention and belly rubs. She has been a wonderful mom and her five puppies will be ready for homes of their own the weekend of October 13th. Their coats are a combination of some short hair and some medium hair.. we have one female and two males available Families looking to adopt puppies should have plenty of time to spend with them training, exercise and teaching them to be a well mannered,

Bert

Bert

Hey Y'all I'm Bert the Squirt! At 4 months old I might still be a silly puppy but I’m smart, quickly picking up potty training and I am crate trained. I have a sleek black coat with some sweet brindle paws and being a Dachshund mix I will be small when I’m all grown up. I love people and I can totally hang out with big dogs. If there are a whole bunch of dogs though and too much excitement, I get really shy and I like to be held in the secure arms of my people. My favorite things are playing tug of war with my foster brother and running around, snuggling with my people, and going for walks as I'm great on a

Juniper (fka Alice)

Juniper (fka Alice)

Juniper is our 2 year old, 45 pound beautiful terrier/ retriever mix that is now looking for a family of her very own. She has had a rough start in life and ended up at the shelter with 9 puppies and watched them each die one by one. She was heartbroken, depressed and giving up. On top of that, she had a heart full of worms. She touched the heart of so many volunteers and all knew she deserved to be happy in a home. After learning more about her, we offered her rescue, we applied for a grant to treat her heartworms and we brought her to Vermont. She started to learn that life was good, people were kind and she looked forward to

Cooper (fka Phil)

Cooper (fka Phil)

Cooper is a big, lovable, energetic puppy who loves his squeaky toys, splashing in the water, cuddle time, and giving kisses. Cooper is looking for an active family who will give him outlets for play time, exercise, and training as he is still a pup and learning the ropes. Cooper sticks close by on off-leash hikes, he's friendly with cats and is a great playmate for other dogs. He's a big boy and doesn't realize his own size so he might knock over toddlers. Older children might be a better match for his size and playfulness. He loves his belly rubs before tucking him away in his crate at night. Cooper is house and crate trained, and would make a loving, loyal family member. Cooper

Dixie

Dixie

Dixie is the perfect little puppy! She has learned so quickly being in her foster home with the help of her moms and her foster siblings! She is friendly, she is social, she is happy, she is well mannered, she loves walks, she's good on the leash, she's picked up amazingly well with crate and potty training. This little girl is going to be super fun to watch grow, easy to train and easily win the hearts of everyone she meets. She loves to play with her toys, go for walks, splash in the water and is a super snuggler. She is 3-4 months old, lab mix with an awesome personality. She is being fostered in Burlington and looking for a home with plenty of

Wednesday

Wednesday

Spunky and smart, Wednesday loves to play with the other dogs even though they are three times her size....they play chase, tug and wrestle. She loves to be on the go! I pick her up and pet her and she is very loving, but as soon as she gets the opportunity she is off to play again, but does like to sack out next to her person when she is tired. She has done very well in her crate while I'm at work, she loves toys, would pick up fetch easily, and is good at self-entertaining when there is no one to play with. Wednesday would fit well with an active family who can give her ample playtime with either a canine playmate or her

Matthew

Matthew

Happy, Healthy, Bouncy and full of life are just a few ways to describe MATTHEW! 3-4 months old. Smart, fun, eager to learn and has been a pleasure to train! He is crate trained, really close to being potty trained, walks well on a leash and stays close off leash! He LOVES the water, even has taken to the kayak, although not sure how long he will fit on one. This boy will be on the bigger size, one look at his paws and longer legs makes us think maybe part Dane. Personality Plus, engaged with everyone he sees, two or four legs. Loves kids, although may be a bit bouncy for the younger ones. We would say he is a medium energy guy, needs

Kerri

Kerri

Happy, social, active, friendly...Kerri is the ultimate snuggler, a quick learner, well-behaved, and genuine sweet heart! Her favorite things are spending time with her people, playing, and she's a swimmer so would love someone that will take her to the water on these hot days to cool off.
