When Forever Parents Become Foster Parents
Annie was a stray in Mississippi, had a litter of puppies, and ended up in a high-kill shelter for two months. In September 2014 we adopted her through the Animal Rescue Front and brought her home to Maine. She was about a year and a half old at the time. She is a very people-loving, sweet-mannered dog who had a rough start in life. She uis about 40 lbs. loves to fetch a ball or Frisbee in her fenced yard, ride in the car, take walks, and go on hikes. She loves children but is too quick and strong to play safely with young ones. She has never bitten or even tried to bite a human, can share her toys, and is not food aggressive. Annie knows how to sit, lie down, shake, stand up, beg, stay, wait, roll over, and come. She is very treat-motivated to learn and is eager to please. We’re guessing she is a beagle/hound/pointer/terrier/boxer mix. She is sometimes dog selective, (we think because of fear) but after a slow introduction, she now loves to play with my son’s dog, a big English shepherd mix. With more socialization around other dogs, I think she would do better, as she loves to play.
Heartbreakingly, we must find a new home for Annie because I had an accident in the spring that resulted in three broken bones, and I spent seven weeks in a wheelchair. I’ve largely recovered but can’t risk another fall. My husband and I are seniors with increasing health challenges that make it more difficult for us to give Annie the active life she needs. She thrives around people and with positive reinforcement, can sleep a lot (especially in front of a warm wood stove!), and is adaptable to her people. We have two cats, but they must live upstairs because Annie (through no lack of our trying to train her otherwise) treats them like prey. Annie is also a lot of fun, but not for cats!

I am located here in New England and would love to meet you to see if we could become a family!

About Animal Rescue Front, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

ARF started in 2005 in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and because of the shocking treatment we saw many animals in the Deep South endure and the extremely high kill rates in their shelter systems we have stayed committed to helping animals with a focus in the state of Mississippi. Many of these wonderful animals would be killed in a shelter or abandoned outside if not for our continued efforts.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoptions fees are based on the state you live in. If you are a Massachusetts resident we are required by the Dept. of Agriculture to quarantine your adopted animal for a minimum of 48hrs.. The cost for this quarantine is $50.00 per animal. Our fees are as follow:

Adult dogs 13 months to 5 years - MA resident $475, all others $425.00.
Adult dogs +5 years of age - MA resident $375, all others $325.00
Puppies 12 months and younger - MA resident $550, all others $500.00.

If pre-adoption neutering is not medically advised prior to adoption, a refund of $70 will be given to the adopter when proof of neuter is presented to us. This is a strict requirement of our organization and the MA Department of Agriculture/Animal Welfare and no exceptions are allowed without written proof from a licensed veterinarian. Our adoption donation covers the transport to New England and exceptional vetting from our local veterinary teams down south, microchipping and local quarantining in MA. As well we reimburse our southern rescues so they can continue their life saving mission. We do require you to fill out an application and provide a vet reference, and a home inspection may be requested. As well an adoption contract will be emailed to you once the adoption has been approved. Our adoption application can be found here:

Thanks for rescuing!

Please note - we will not adopt a puppy to anyone who is not willing and committed to ensuring their new family member never reproduce. Spaying and neutering your pet contributes to efforts to reduce unwanted and homeless animals in the United States and your animal will be healthier. Our adoption fees are nonrefundable after 21 days. If for whatever reason your adoption is not suitable to you or your adoptee we require the animal be surrendered to us.
