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. She would be a great match for an active family who has the time and patience to raise a puppy, committed to socializing, training, plenty of exercise, play time and to be a part of family activities. Kerri is approximately 16 weeks old, 20 lbs., beautiful Collie/Retriever mix with the cutest curly tail!

Griffin

Griffin

A family in South Carolina awoke at 4:00 a.m., afraid to go outside as they thought they would be confronted by a burglar, only to find stray puppy Griffin (fka Happy) trying to move in under their porch. Griffin was then brought to the shelter by animal control and his former family never came for him. Griffin is now safe and settling into a temporary foster home, hoping that his next family doesn’t let him down. Griffin’s super cool, easy-going, gentle nature makes him a great fit for a home with kids, dogs, cats and fun family outings. He is quickly picking up on house and crate training, nice manners, walking on-leash, riding in the car and clearly thrives on the love, structure and stability

Theo - ADOPTION PENDING

Theo - ADOPTION PENDING

Just a few days ago Theo was stuck in an overcrowded shelter in South Carolina worried about his future...today he is with a foster family….hiking, exploring, and sharing beautiful views of Mt. Ascutney in Vermont…his tail has not stopped wagging! Theo's former family turned him into a shelter along with a litter of puppies. He was terribly underfed and neglected. Poor guy is skin and bones and is so grateful for regular meals. Despite a former life of neglect, he is quickly falling into a routine, enjoying nutritious meals, treats, toys, a soft bed, and will bury his head gently into your body, so loving and affectionate. He is a big fan of getting belly rubs and giving kisses. Theo is also making fast friends

She's also good for baths and handling, rides perfectly in the car, is very quiet, and is fine in her crate. She has the perfect amount of energy and would be a nice fit for a family who is looking for a young, well-balanced companion for fun adventures. 9 months old, 55 lbs, pointer/boxer mix

Jasper

Jasper

No couch potato here! Young and full of life, Jasper is seeking a fun, energetic companion who loves the outdoors…hiking, swimming, playing, exploring, jogging….whatever activity you are up for he's ready to go. Some of Jasper's favorite things include squeaky toys, playing fetch, and going on pack walks through the woods and fields with all his four-legged friends. Jasper can be anxious at times but he is responding really well to some adjustments to help make his life less stressful for him. He would make a great playmate for another active dog and we think another doggy companion would help to ease his anxiety as he transitions and adapts to a new home. He has been started on basic obedience training and would be a
