Sally Sunshine is here to brighten up someone's life!
Sally appears to be a Shepherd mix about 11 months old. She's awesome! She's good with all other dogs, with cats, and walks beautifully on a leash - she'd make a great running partner! She will go in her crate willingly and behaves in it.
We don't know yet if she's house trained, but she's very smart and extremely eager to please so house training her shouldn't be a problem. Her foster mom takes her out fairly frequently so she hasn't had any accidents in the house lately. She's good in the car and likes toys, so she's looking forward to a trip to the pet store to pick out some new ones to play with. Sally enjoys playing fetch in the house, but there are too many distractions for her to concentrate on the game outside. Her favorite toy is your basic tennis ball and we've just learned she LOVES squeaky toys! We strongly recommend that all our dogs attend obedience classes, not only because you get to learn commands together and it offers an opportunity for confidence building and socialization for the dog, but because it helps to strengthen that ever-important bond between the dog and her human family. And it’s lots of fun! A well-mannered, obedient dog will be welcomed most anywhere you take her. Though a fenced yard (6-ft. recommended because she can jump very high) is the ideal place for Sally to run and play safely, if one is not available she will needs lots of daily walks and opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park which is the next best thing - and Sally enjoys the dog park! A tired dog is a good dog! Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental stimulation – think puzzle toys and games. At 11 months Sally can still be an silly puppy and puppies require a lot of time, energy and patience to help them grow into the well-mannered adult dog they're meant to be. Sally will need help learning that her chew toys are the only appropriate chewing items and that jumping up on people is bad manners. Because of her tendency to jump and nibble on fingers, a home with older dog-respectful children is recommended. She has learned "sit" and "down" and is working on "stay." Sally does startle easily and is very cautious around the guys in her foster home, but she is a sweetheart and needs all the love you can give her!

**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.
