Hope springs eternal...and this beautiful girl is called Hope.
Hope was in really horrible shape when she was found as a stray in late October, covered in fleas and ticks, bad diarrhea - she weighed only 28 pounds and you could see every bone in her body. Yet, says her rescuer, there was something in her eyes just asking for love. And that's what she wants, someone to love. Hope is a lover and a cuddler. She wants to be with her people and wants to cuddle with them. She often comes up to her foster and wraps her paws around her for a hug, leaning her head onto her chest if she's sitting down. She is one of those dogs that makes you feel like everything is going to be okay. We think with some training, she would make an excellent emotional support dog. She loves kids (and will wrap her paws around them and hug them, too). She is a little shy and timid at first but really is amazing with people within a few minutes. Hope's also great with other dogs, though she wants to play kind of rough, and shows no interest in cats. She's working diligently on her house training and leash training, and already is crate trained. Though a fenced yard would be the ideal place for Hope to play safely, if that's not an option then daily leash walks and off-leash play time in a dog park is the next best thing. A tired dog is a good dog! Hope's good in the car, likes toys, is obedient, playful and eager to please.
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. Hope knows "sit" and would love to learn more with her new family. She does need some help with her house manners as counter surfing, jumping on guests, and checking out the trash can are currently "fun" activities for her. She also tends to be rather vocal so she's most likely not suited for apartment living.
 
Hope is very special and though her foster is going to have a difficult time letting her go, she knows she will make someone an amazing dog. Does Hope sound like the BFF you've been looking for? Fill out an application today and make this pretty girl's hope come alive!

**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.
