Huckleberry might be an older dog, but he is still young at heart. He is good with other dogs and good with cats. And as his foster mom says, "he's soooo house trained, it's crazy!" Huckleberry is a low maintenance dude, who loves to nap by a warm fireplace and may take some coaxing to go out in the snow. He tends to favor women more than men when it comes to his interpretation of pack structure. Don't let his chill appearance fool you though, Huck loves to run around the dog park and play with other dogs. He would do well in most homes with the right structure, consistent guidance and strong leadership. Huck likes to let you know when he is excited - when his people return home, when he is in play, when he is refereeing the other dogs around him - but we are working on proper manners and he is an excellent student. He also makes a good guard dog and will vocalize when a stranger approaches his home. Huck would be a fabulous candidate for scent work, and this would also provide him with the mental stimulation he craves. Huck came into rescue because he was used as a hunting dog and when his owner no longer had time for him, he surrendered him to the local kill shelter. If you can give this older gentleman the type of home where he will thrive, please fill out an application. Huck will give you many years of love and companionship.
 
Medical Note: Huck has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. He is on daily medication to manage this issue and doing well; this medication costs about $15/month.

Adoption Fee: $200

**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.
