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.

Brooklyn

Brooklyn

Some of Brooklyn’s favorite things are running through the woods, playing fetch with a tennis ball, swimming, a peanut butter filled Kong or bone, and snuggle time. She is definitely an active girl but can also spend time by herself while her family is away and has nice house manners. She can be little anxious around unfamiliar visitors, but will eventually settle in as she gets used to new people. With some time and training she could be a skilled leash walker as she is smart and aims to please her people. Brooklyn literally smiles when you pet her or when she’s enjoying herself and is a girl with many talents….she can catch a treat when balanced on her nose, play dead, sit, give a

Molly

Molly

Sweet Molly is our 8 year old love. She had been in a loving home for 8 years until unforeseen circumstances separated her from the family and she ended up at the Shelter. Our volunteers quickly went to meet Molly in the SC shelter and help make arrangements to get this wonderful soul out of the shelter and into a foster home while we made arrangements to bring her to Vermont. Molly LOVES Vermont… she was introduced to the snow and you could practically see the smile on her face… or it could be that she was so happy to be once again in a home and loved. Molly was a bit over-weight and our foster home worked hard on proper diet and exercise to
