October 2016: Rory is here with us and doing awesome. Her foster siblings are two small dogs, a cat, a kitten and a rat! Rory has a neighbor human friend who is about 10 years old and she did well with her. She has also met younger children and she seems to take to them very well, almost better than adults. Rory has been going to doggy day care and she is not always sure how to play with big groups of other dogs, she can be a little bossy or defensive. They made her group smaller and less rambunctious, and she has been much better.
Rory can be a little nervous at first meetings, especially with men, but she is learning to trust and that humans can be good. It's amazing how resilient dogs are! Rory is just a love!
Rory and her three pups were rescued from the side of the road by a good Samaritan. Rory and one puppy were actually crossing a busy 2 lane highway, a disaster in the making! They are safe now and the puppies have all been adopted; Rory had to get treated for heartworm but now she is healthy has come north to a Maine foster home.
Rory is great with everyone, fine with dogs and cats. While she hasn't lived with children, her caregivers think she would be fine with kids but we'll can get more information on this as she settles in. Rory is around 1.5 years old and weighs around 40lbs.

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!
