Nessa's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Nessa's Story...
Although Nessa looks like a puppy, she is actually around 5 years old. She was abandoned in Lakeville and rescued by the animal control officer. She is super sweet and very outgoing. We think she would be fine for gentle kids ages 10 and up. She was spayed on 3/9 and is ready for adoption. She looks large in these pictures, but she only weighs 29 lbs. She is a bit underweight and is being treated for Lyme, but just needs some good care in order to blossom.

We give priority to people that fill out our adoption application, so if you are interested in meeting one of our dogs, that is the first step. E-mail inquiries about a dog are not considered an application.

If you are interested in adopting a dog, please fill out our dog adoption application here: http://medfieldshelter.com/adopt. Our dog adoption fee is $350. Every dog we place is vaccinated, wormed, treated for ticks/fleas, and spayed/neutered prior to adoption. We send each dog home with a collar and leash and a month's worth of heartworm preventative.

With very few exceptions, dogs are happiest and the most well-behaved when they receive daily exercise and ongoing training, so we always prefer to place our dogs with families who are willing to make a commitment to both.

All adoption meetings are by appointment only as we only have one employee. Our manager or one of our volunteers will be happy to set up an appointment for you to come meet the pets, but please fill out the adoption application first.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nessa, a Medfield Podengo Portugueso/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Podengo Portugueso/Border Collie for sale in Medfield, or seeking a Podengo Portugueso/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Medfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Medfield already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Medfield breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Podengo Portugueso/Border Collie breeders who help with Podengo Portugueso/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Medfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
