One ear flipped and one ear flopped - meet Flip Flop Medley, one happy, gentle, sweet girl!
Flip Flop appears to be a Labrador Retreiver mix about 1 year old. We really can't say enough good things about this girl: she's sweet as can be, gets along well with other dogs, and is just a pleasure to be around. Flip Flop enjoys running and playing, but she also LOVES attention and being with people! She is not over exuberant, and shows a little hesitancy when meeting new people - likely because she did not experience many new situations and people when she was younger - but she warms up quickly and wants to trust and bond with folks. Flip Flop has some experience on a leash, but further training will be needed. She is a moderate energy kind of gal and will need a moderate amount of daily exercise, training and a structured home life. We strongly recommend that all our dogs attend obedience classes because you get to learn commands together and it offers an opportunity for confidence building and socialization for the dog, and because it helps to strengthen that ever-important bond between the dog and her human family. It’s lots of fun, too! A well-mannered, obedient dog will be welcomed most anywhere you take her. Though Flip Flop doesn’t necessarily require a fenced yard, she will need daily walks and will benefit from opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park. A tired dog is a good dog! Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental stimulation – think puzzle toys and games.
 
Flip Flop is a true gem - a fabulous dog who will blossom in almost any home that provides her with basic training, moderate exercise and affection. If you're looking to add some sweet happy to your family, fill out an application for Flip Flop Medley! You may have just found your BFF!
 
Flip Flop's Back Story: Flip Flop and her siblings were found by an animal control officer in Arkansas in early July of this year. All of her siblings have traveled to New England and since been adopted. Flip Flop will arrive north on Saturday, February 18th, and we promise that anyone who meets her will fall in love.

Medical Note: Flip Flop was born with a slight eyelid defect that was causing corneal discomfort and put her at risk for corneal ulcers and blindness. She had surgery to correct this on 1/24/2017 and is doing great! By nature of the surgical correction (partial tarsoraphy), Flip Flop's eye opening was made to be slightly smaller by joining a few millimeters of the outer edges. After all the swelling goes down (in about 6 months), the size difference between her two eyes should be minor. While it will take a few months for her to look her normal, beautiful self again, Flip Flop's eye is now no longer tearing and most importantly, not uncomfortable nor at risk to corneal scarring and blindness. Flip Flop is ready to find her furever home!

Medical Note: This dog was treated for demodectic mange while in the SOS program. The dog has responded well to this treatment. Please note that demodex can flare up in any dog in times of stress (eg, transport, transition to a new home, change in food, etc). As such, the adopter is advised to discuss this condition and best next steps with their veterinarian. SOS recommends that dogs with a history of demodectic mange be kept on regular NexGard or Bravecto for flea/tick prevention for at least 3 months or until 18 months of age. Please see here for more information on demodectic mange: http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/mange-demodectic-in-dogs/741. Please check with your vet if you should have any questions or concerns about this condition, and discuss any concerns you may have with your SOS Adoption Counselor.

Medical Note: This dog tested positive for exposure to ehrlichia while in SOS foster care. This does not mean that this dog had ehrlichia. This dog is/has been asymptomatic while in SOS care and was preventatively treated with a 28-day course of doxycycline. Please see here for more information on ehrlichia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehrlichiosis_(canine). Please check with your vet if you should have any questions or concerns about this condition, and discuss any concerns you may have with your SOS Adoption Counselor. 

Adoption Fee: $425

**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.
