This handsome little guy is Loki!
Loki appears to be a dachshund mix about a year old. He and his buddy Thor were surrendered to a local southern shelter with seven other dogs and judging by their extreme shyness and nervousness around people, have had very little human interaction in their lives. With patience and enough time to settle in and relax they do begin to warm up. They are learning slowly in their foster home that people aren't going to hurt them - that interaction with humans is a positive thing. Their foster is able to pick them up and carry them around, and Thor is now actively seeking out attention though he still occasionally hides. Their socialization will take time, but Loki and Thor have a lot of love to give and with patience they will each blossom in his new fur-ever home! Both dogs love to wrestle and play with other dogs and with toys - we don't know how they are with kitties. They are most likely too shy and skittish at this point to be in a home with children. Thor is a chewer - box springs, harnesses - if it can be chewed, Thor will chew it. He will need some indestructible chew toys to keep him busy. A securely fenced yard is a must. Both dogs are house trained and crate trained. Both are used to being crated at night and when their foster mom is not home. Thor is now leash trained, Loki isn't. Currently their foster is leaving a leash attached at all times and this is a good idea for awhile in their new home as well. They should also be afforded several "hiding spots" in the home: Thor prefers closets and under the bed; Loki's more into crates. An obedience class is strongly recommended for adopter and dog bonding, and for the opportunity it gives for confidence building and socialization for the dog.
 
Though Loki and Thor could be adopted as a pair, they would most likely benefit from being adopted separately, and would do best with another well-adjusted dog in the adopter's home from which to learn social skills. It is also recommended that the adopter have experience with extremely shy/timid dogs. Both these boys are smart and with lots of time and patience, either one of them will make someone a wonderful buddy!

**Additional info you should know -  For most of our dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.  We get to know each of our dogs as an individual and do our best to describe and place them based on personality not breed label.   Some dogs may not yet be in New England, nor ready for immediate adoption.  There may be additional vetting, quarantine, waiting periods and/or fees depending upon your state of residence. If you have questions or concerns on any of this, you can discuss this with your Adoption Counselor.

Our Adoption Process...

Step 1: Find Fido

Review our online dog bios, email us if you have any questions. At SOS, we want to make the RIGHT right match, and that means helping you and Fido start a relationship – sometimes from a long distance.

Take your time, explore your options, consider your home and what kind of companion will fit in your lifestyle.

Step 2: Complete Our Application http://sosarl.org/aa/

Once you think you have found the right dog for you, please complete our online application.

At SOS, we don’t just want to make a match, we want to make the right match. To do this, we need your help; we know our dogs, but we don’t know you yet – our application helps us get to know you!

Step 3: Have a Talk

We will review the application and if it appears to be a good match for the selected dog, we will arrange for a time to talk with you over the phone.

Step 4: Meet Your Match

If, after the phone interview, the match seems to be a good one, we will be happy to arrange a meet-n-greet with you and the dog, if the dog is local. Meet-n-greets will be scheduled in the order they are requested.

Step 5: Application Screening

Once everyone has met (if the dog is local), and the match seems to be a good one, a designated SOS volunteer will check your landlord, vet, and personal references, as relevant. We may also require a home visit or adopter meeting.

Step 6: Finalize The Adoption

If the match is a good one, you will be informed via email of the adoption decision, and provided with instructions for how to pay the adoption donation and complete our adoption contract/addendum(s).

Step 7: Pick Up Your New Best Friend!

Once the adoption is finalized, congratulations! We will contact you to make arrangements to pick up your new family member!
**Please note that additional vetting,quarantine and/or waiting periods may be required depending upon your state of residence.

All of our dogs are age appropriately vaccinated prior to adoption. All of our dogs have been spayed/neutered and tested/treated for common canine disease.
