Before he came north... Our southern rescue partners placed Crosby in a new foster home with no other animals and he is SO happy. They have children and he LOVES them. The kids are 2 yrs and 3 months old and he is so amazing with them. He will sit for a cookie when the 2 year old tells him to! How cute is that?
His is another survival story. Crosby (named after the famous crooner Bing Crosby) is a 4 year old, 55 lb pup who came to our partner rescuers as a stray. When found, he was living in a duck blind where he had been seen for about a month. They looked for his family, but sadly, as is too often the case, nobody came to claim him.
We are unsure of his breed mix but Crosby appears to be a Chocolate Lab mixed with maybe some hound.
Crosby has so many good qualities that make him a perfect candidate to be a family dog.
-- He is outgoing, and loves every human he meets, big and small. There are no strangers in Crosby's world -- only new friends.
-- He is crate trained and well behaved in the home.
-- He loves to go for walks or ride in the car.
He would be a wonderful companion for someone who spends a lot of time on the road or who just wants a friend to spend time with at home.
It is heartbreaking that Crosby has been waiting for TWO YEARS for a home to call his own. He is a harder placement because he truly needs to be an "only" child where other animals are concerned. He does not appreciate kitties in the least and does not want to share a home with any. Although he is not outwardly aggressive towards other dogs that he meets in his travels, he is protective of his personal space and toys. This is not unusual behavior for a dog that has had to fight to survive on his own.
Crosby is a very special boy and who deserves a home and family to call his own. We need everyone's help to find that home for Crosby. Please give Crosby a chance -- you will not be sorry.

Please note, we do not have a physical facility where our dogs are housed, they are cared for in our network of wonderful foster homes throughout New England. If you find a dog you would like to meet, our expectation is that, once approved, you will travel to meet the dog in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
Thank you for considering rescue!
