This ball of fun is Miguel!
Miguel appears to be a Shepherd/Cattle dog mix about a year old. He has beautiful thick coat, gorgeous coloring, and the cutest bobbed tail that keeps wagging. He's very playful, affectionate, even-tempered, smart, and a bit of a goof-ball. He's good with other dogs who enjoy engaging with him (he can play a little rough so there may be some refereeing necessary), however he may do best as an only dog because he feels he needs to be Number One. When his foster mom is petting the resident dog, Miguel tries squeezing his way in. No kitty cats for him - in his mind, they are there for chasing. He is friendly to all new people he meets. He is interested in new dogs, and interested but a bit timid in new places. He is eager to please, and while he has not been exposed to much in his young life, he adapts relatively quickly to new environments and people.
 
Miguel is looking for an active, well-balanced and structured household. He likes to swim, play fetch, likes toys and is good in the car, so...did someone say, road trip or hiking adventure!??!   He will need consistent reinforcement to learn good house manners. He would be best with no children or older children, as he may inadvertently knock over small ones with his higher energy and activity level. He's house trained, crate trained and walks well on a leash, and has learned "down" (with treats); he also sits and waits for his food. He sleeps out of his crate at night and when his fosters aren't home he's in his crate so he doesn't get into any trouble. He LOVES to play and can be very vocal while playing. Though a fenced yard is an ideal place for your puppy to romp and play safely, if that’s not an option then he will need regular daily leash walks and opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park. A tired dog is a good dog and this is true in Miguel's case! Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental stimulation – think puzzle toys and games. Miguel and his new family will benefit from group training classes, where they can learn commands together, and build his confidence and social skills. These classes can also be lots of fun, and a well-mannered, obedient dog will be welcomed most anywhere you take him.
 
If you are looking for a new adventure buddy, and have the time, patience and energy to devote to helping Miguel realize his full potential as an adventure dog, fill out an application today! Throw in some love, jogs and tricks training, and Miguel will be a very happy boy!
 
Miguel's Backstory: Miguel  was dropped off on a back road in Arkansas, and a kind person brought him to the shelter.

**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.
