**IN VERMONT** Meet Sailor! More pics and video to come! Sailor is approx. 15-16 mos. old, about 45 lbs., vetted, neutered, and micro-chipped. Sailor is crate trained and likes to go for rides in the car. He prefers to be the only dog; he gets along great and is bonded with his caretakers kids but is becoming protective of them. He currently lives in a busy neighborhood so we would love to see  Sailor move out to a rural area and enjoy lots of exercise. Sailor has a low to medium energy, and knows Sit, Stay, Come, Off, "let's go" for walking - almost Heel. He looves his toys, rawhide bones, kongs, and is happy to play frisbee and ball. Sailor also enjoys his daily walks. He loves to chase after squirrels and search for rodents in the yard or on walks. He needs to be in a home with older teenage kids that have a predictable energy. He is smart, sweet, loveable, and patient but his current environment is not working for him; he is being isolated more and more because he is being protective of the children so he is regressing which happens with more isolation and needs a home as soon as possible.

Disclosure:   Breed labels are often incorrect: we rarely know the genetic lineage of the dogs we rescue.  Many shelters and rescues specify breeds based on appearance; however, research has shown that less than 2% of a dog’s DNA determines appearance!   Passion 4 Paws does not practice the use of labels pertaining to compatibility with others or dog breed.  Labels such as “dog friendly” and “child friendly” should be used with caution as they often over-simplify the personalities and behavior of dogs. 


About Passion 4 Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

Passion 4 Paws is an animal rescue organization founded by Robin Shover of Shelburne, Vermont. Robin has invested many years learning best practices to rescue dogs primarily from death row at high kill shelters. Robin works very closely with Potters Angels Rescue out of Randolph, Vermont and decided the most effective way to save even more dogs is to continue working closely with PAR plus her own new entity in Chittenden County and surrounding areas. Many people who personally know Robin realize her "passion" and dedication to the dogs. P4Ps rescues dogs from high kill shelters, provides a safe environment with foster families and adopters, education for the community, and advocacy for animal rights. Our group will be staffed entirely by volunteers and will be served by a Board of Directors. Our efforts will be supported through donations, charity events, Corporate/Employee Benefit tax deductible donation programs, and the generosity of animal lovers from within the community. Our focus is on dog rescue only. All funds received will be used strictly for this purpose and will incorporate medical bills, transport fees, food and other items for the dogs, shelter fees, charity events, boarding, and training.
