This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped.
Let the cuddles begin! This sweet girl is Suzanna, or Suzie as her foster mom likes to call her.  Suzie is sweet and gentle, and good with other dogs, older children (young exuberant kids might be too much for her), and cats.   Suzie is great in the car, likes to play, chew on her toys and swim, and she would really love a kiddie pool to splash around in this summer. Suzanna would do best with a fenced-in yard, as such would be a great way for her to get the needed exercise and play that will keep her a healthy and happy dog and she is still learning to be comfortable on a leash. Suzie has typical puppy energy, she isn't super playful but as not mellow - she is right in between. Suzanna is house trained and crate trained. She is currently working on leash training and doing well. 
Suzie has been in foster care for several months and has shown to need a lot of time to trust new people and new situations.  She has not shown any aggression, but she is unsure of new people and situations, and will avoid such if possible, or alert bark.  Suzie has made a lot of progress in her foster home with her uncertainty of new people, and is a complete snuggle-bug with her foster mom.  She has warmed up to the older children in the household, as well as her foster dad.  She is still a bit skittish of new house guests, and doesn't initiate contact. She will however check things out if her foster siblings are getting petted and will stay to be petted as long as they are being petted, too. Suzie takes a lot of confidence from the other dogs in the household, and for this reason, we recommend she go to a home that has a well-balanced canine there who can be her guide, companion and support, who will create opportunities for human interaction with her. 
We strongly encourage basic obedience training for all our puppies, as it not only helps your puppy blossom into a well balanced canine citizen with good manners, but it also helps to form a lasting bond between the puppy and the humans in the family. This is true for Suzie - the more time and energy you invest in her, the more likely you will have a great family companion who is welcome at family gatherings and in public for many years to come.  Suzie needs a kind and patient family, but also one that is committed to exposing her slowly to new things to help build her confidence at a pace that is comfortable for her.  Her adopters  should plan to keep her world very small for at least the first few months after adoption, exposing her to new situations in very small doses and always with lots of positive rewards.
If Suzie sounds like the girl you've been waiting for, please fill out an application. You're going to love her!

Suzie's History:  Suzie is one of four sisters from the Aster litter.  These girls were born around January 24th of 2016 and look to be Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mixes. They were around 5 weeks old when someone left them in a field and a shelter volunteer rescued them.

**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

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.
