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

BOOMER

BOOMER

Boomer here!!! I had a pretty rough couple of years, but thanks to many angels along the way, my life has turned around completely. When I left the shelter with my rescue group, my heart was full of worms. Not only that, I had pneumonia and some skin challenges. I am so thankful for my foster mom who took the time to clear my pneumonia so I could be ready for the heartworm treatment. I have to say it was a long time before I felt good, but it was worth the wait! While my lungs were left with some scarring from the pneumonia on top of the heartworms, I am a very happy and loving boy and am now ready to find my furever

SCOTTY

SCOTTY

SCOTTY! This extremely handsome brindle boy is a southern gentleman thru and thru. Scotty is about 35 pounds and pure soul. He is kind, he gently engages people and adores kids. He enjoys having canine companions in the home and looks forward to family time with the hoomans. Scotty has been in his current foster home for a few months as he went through his heartworm treatment which he has recovered from like a trooper. His foster family adores him, and he has been an easy foster. They have enjoyed watching him spread his wings and have been impressed with his calm personality and how well he has fit in with their dogs, their family, kiddos and friends. Scotty is a gem and will fill

EMERY

EMERY

Little Miss EMERY has just recently lost the only mom she ever knew due to an unexpected illness. She is a 6 year old dachshund mix that was very much loved and well taken care of by her mom and now is looking for another mom (and/dad?) to fill that void and fill her heart again with love and companionship. Emery weighs about 18 pounds and is very well mannered around the home. She is used to the quiet lifestyle and probably would prefer a home on the quieter side. She does well with other dogs that share her medium energy or could also be the spoiled only child. Kitties are not something Emery enjoys sharing a home with, so no kitties please. We think

Bethany

Bethany

FOR FOSTER OR ADOPTION...Bethany was picked up as stray and brought to the shelter by animal control and her owners never came for her. She has finished heartworm treatment and is looking forward to coming to Vermont (arriving May 18) to start a new and better life. Now she just needs a foster or adopter who will give her that second chance! The shelter staff describe Bethany as sweet, gentle-natured, walks nicely on leash, a bit timid and looks to her handler for guidance. She tested well with other dogs. 1-2 years old, 47 lbs, looks to be full German Shepherd, maybe mix. If you are interested in offering Bethany some love and stability, please submit an application http://longtraildogs.org/adoption-application/ e-mail lisa@longtraildogs.org

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
