Puppies Logan and Lovey!

Puppies Logan and Lovey!

Born to a stray mom, siblings Logan (male, 17 lbs) and Lovey (female, 15 lbs) have been loved and well-cared for in a foster home since they were four weeks old and eating on their own. They have been well socialized with people, other dogs, and cats. Typical 10 week old pups, they are social, friendly, playful, healthy and ready to join active families who will spend time with training and give them outlets for exercise and play time. These family companions are well on their way to maturing into well-rounded, happy adults you can take anywhere. Lab/American Bulldog mix

Bernard

Bernard

This handsome boy was abandoned at a campsite and a concerned family brought him to one of our partner shelters in South Carolina after his owners could not be found. Bernard was held for an additional time at the shelter and still his owners did not come for him so we quickly made arrangements for this boy to come to Vermont so we could find him the family he deserves, one that won’t let him down again. He has quickly proved to be an amazing boy, easily integrating into a foster home with two female dogs, three cats, and a former male rescue dog Banks (incidentally, rescued from the same shelter!) who is a frequent visitor. Bernard is super friendly, easy-going, listens well, a good

TOOTSIE

TOOTSIE

Queen TOOTSIE! Tootsie is a 2 year old, 9 pound beauty that was turned in as a stray in a South Carolina shelter and was never claimed. True to chihuahua personality, Tootsie loves her people and is happy to join in whatever the daily activities will be. She travels well in the car, is great on and off leash and enjoys daily walks. Her thrown is the lap and probably her favorite place to be. She has good house-manners, has earned her freedom in the home when left alone, is not a yapper and gets along with other well mannered dogs. Tootsie's ideal home will be with a low/moderate active couple that enjoys a pint sized canine companion. Young kiddos in the home would not

KAY

KAY

Meet KAY KAY! Our beautiful husky arrived from our partner shelter after being surrendered by her owner for not being able to take the proper care of or have the time to give her and her sibling Drago needed. We were happy to offer them rescue in the Northern climate and promised to find them both wonderful families. Drago will treated for heartworms and then be available for adoption, but sweet Kay is heartworm free and she can start her journey with a forever home as soon as we find her an ideal family!

Don't let his size fool you, this guy is also a hiking, off leash champ! Loves to explore, but stays close and responds really well to direction and recall.

A family that would like to include him in daily routine and weekend adventures would be

MARSHALL

MARSHALL

Hi! My name is Marshall. People call me a handsome bullmatian from Fort Worth, TX. My foster mom pulled me from the really scary shelter and moved me all the way to New Hampshire! She tells me I’m a really good boy, but the first two years and eight months of my life weren’t easy. The scary shelter guys found me on the streets, then I spent four months in a loud, dirty puppy jail known as the shelter. This was a scary place for me and being behind bars made me terrified of people. They would walk by, stare in my kennel, I would cower and growl to prevent them from coming in, not realizing I was losing any chance I had in finding

Smitty

Smitty

Meet Smitty the most handsome Bluetick Coonhound ever and super sweet temperament to match! Smitty is very social and friendly with humans and other dogs. He is a little too interested in cats, so a home free of furry felines might be a better fit for Smitty. He is gun shy, which is most likely the reason why he ended up in the shelter as he prefers to be a loving and loyal family companion rather than a hunting dog! But with his hound DNA, we think he would enjoy the opportunity to do some scent work or tracking. Smitty is crate trained and working on his house manners and obedience skills, already mastering a great “sit.” Come have a play date with Smitty and

Luke

Luke

Luke was rescued from a shelter in South Carolina and brought to Vermont back in January so he could receive lifesaving treatment for heartworms and then search for a loving family. With an extended stay in a foster home while he recovers from heartworm treatment, his foster family has learned that Luke is very sweet, smart, and food motivated. He has learned some basic obedience including sit, down, and working on come and stay. He is being fostered with three other dogs and once he felt safe in his new environment he relaxed and lives in harmony among the other dogs, but would be just as happy to be an only dog too. Luke has been an easy foster dog, is housebroken, crate trained, has

Wally

Wally

How Wally ended up as a stray wandering in a Walgreens parking lot we will never know. We rescued Wally and placed him in a home with cats and a toddler and they are just way too exciting for Wally, so we have discovered that he would do best in a home with older children (teens+) and no little furry pets to chase. He would love to share a home with another doggy companion though. His foster Mom says he is smart, energetic, and funny! He is doing well at obedience school learning some clicker training, and the instructor thinks he is so smart and energetic that he would excel at agility or a dog sport. He is solidly kennel trained, house-broken with a clear

She is low key, loving, and currently in a foster home where she is working on building her confidence and feeling safe in certain situations. With her infectious smile and steadily wagging semi-shaggy tail, she will quickly win over your attention. Chanel is gentle natured, friendly, huggable, and loves to be by her human’s side. She is also playfully interactive with other dogs. She tends to be on the submissive side, but is only looking to be accepted and part of the group, hoping to fit it. If you are looking for a walking or hiking companion, Chanel loves to spend time outdoors and

She is fun, she is bouncy, she is active and smart! Ginger LOVES other dogs, especially ones that are her size to run, romp and play with. She is learning all of her house manners quickly, even learned the doggie door! She enjoys outdoor adventure, she is working and excelling on off leash recall. Ginger is currently living with 2 other dogs and a kitty and all live in harmony. She even shares her bed with the kitty! Her ideal home will be

STAR

STAR

STAR fits her name perfectly! This lovely golden lab mix has a wonderful personality. She absolutely loves life and all it has to offer. She is happy, she is playful, she is active and she is smart. She loves kiddos, is being fostered with a kitty and will most likely be friends in no time. She is working on her house-manners, already has decent recall and has good leash skills. She greets people with a wagging tail and loves to engage in play. Our guess is about 6 months old and currently about 35 pounds. Her ideal family will be one that wants to include a pup in their daily lifestyle and provide ample amounts of outdoor fun and activity. She will also benefit from

SIESTA

SIESTA

We don't know the history of little SIESTA, but we do know that this little sweetheart is going to melt your heart. Siesta is about 14 pounds, approximately 2 years old and is ready to join a forever family. She is a shy girl and has taken a few days to come out of her shell in her foster home, but every day she is more and more engaging.

Her ideal family will be one that understands a shy dog and can help continue to build her confidence to become

MAMA ELLEN

MAMA ELLEN

Mama Ellen! This beautiful 2-3 yr old coonhound mix has quite the story that has brought her to where she is today. Last year, she was left at a high kill shelter (heartworm positive and ready to give birth. This mama had TEN puppies IN the shelter! One of our foster mom’s quickly stepped up and offered to foster Mama Ellen and her newly born 10 pups so they didn’t have to be in the shelter any longer. Ten puppies is a lot for a single mom, but Ellen was a trooper and raised all ten to be very happy, healthy and social pups who are all now thriving in their new homes. This left Mama Ellen ready to start her heartworm treatment. It was

Rover

Rover

Rover is a real gem. This six month old Southern boy has adapted so quickly to life up north and loves playing in the snow. He is a truly gentle, mellow guy, as far as puppies go! He is fully potty trained, and crate trained. He spends a good deal of his time sleeping on the couch or lounging by the woodstove. He plays really well with other dogs and people of all ages from infants (so gentle!) all the way on up. His favorite thing ever is just to be near a human, so his ideal home would have ample amounts of companionship time. He knows sit, lay down, off, come, and is working on stay. He walks well on a leash and LOVES

Zara

Zara

Zara is an itty bitty Holstein pittie looking for a home ready for an expert snuggler. She is estimated to be 2 years old and is a petite 35-40 lbs with a sweet expressive face, and short little legs. Zara arrived in VT after spending some time in a South Carolina foster home loaded with other dogs and at least one resident cat and she got along with everybody. In her foster home in VT, she enjoys snuggling with the resident elder-bull but wishes he would entertain her requests to play. Zara would most enjoy a home with a playful (and snuggly) canine sibling and fenced in back yard for romping. When her person leaves for work Zara willingly hops in her crate to spend

SOPHIE

SOPHIE

Sophie, our black beauty pitty who is looking for that special person/family who understands the love of Pitt Bull. Sophie is petite for her breed at 40 pounds. She is about 2 years old and has been through at least 2 homes during her young life, not including foster homes. Sophie was recently returned to our rescue by her adopters after 9 months. During that time, while walking Sophie on a leash, Sophie was attacked by an off leash dog causing multiple wounds and a trip to the vet. Since that time, Sophie has become cautious of other dogs and was feeling trapped on a leash, resulting in barking at oncoming dogs. The owner was not comfortable having Sophie on her walks anymore and decided

Wally

Wally

How Wally ended up as a stray wandering in a Walgreens parking lot we will never know. He is a super sweet little guy….good with children, other dogs, and while curious, he is respectful of cats. He would love to share a home with another doggy companion. Everyone who meets Wally says he is super smart, fun, energetic, and loves to play, play, play! His foster Mom says he is treat motivated, knows basic commands (sit, lie down, come), and would be a fun dog to train in agility. He also has nice house manners, is crate trained, and walks well on-leash. If you are looking for a smaller dog with some get up and go, but one that is also affectionate, snuggly, and loves

Sky was a street pup in Costa Rica until she was brought to a lovely foster home in Costa Rica where she was brought in, taken care of, loved, received veterinary care (vaccines, spayed, dewormed) by our wonderful supporting local vet. Skye Blue waited a few months with her foster mom in Costa Rica while we arranged for a ticket on a plane to come to Vermont with one of our Vermont foster mom's!

He is social, friendly, playful, loves to play with his other canine friends, a genuine cuddler and a quick learner. His ideal home will be with other canine friends and/or respectful kiddos. A family that is home more than not. A family that knows the time, commitment, patience and training that it takes to raise a well mannered puppy to adult and willing to follow through for
