Roo here!
Aren't I the most adorable thing you've ever seen??? The rescue people who picked me up as a stray are guessing that I'm an Irish Terrier mix about four months old. I have kind of wiry hair and it's this pretty tan color with some white on my chest. My cute black nose looks a big button on my face. I'm good with other dogs, not sure about those things called cats, and I'm real friendly with big people, so I'm probably okay with little people, too. I'm working hard on my training: 85% house trained, 75% crate trained (sometimes I "talk" when I'm crated), and 75% leash trained - pretty good for just a puppy, ya think? I'm learning how to play fetch and once I get the hang of it, I think it'll be one of my favorite games. I am playful and like toys, and since I'm good in the car maybe we could take a trip to the pet store and pick out some new toys! I'm smart, obedient and eager to please so let's do an obedience class together!
SOS strongly recommends that all us 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 it also helps to strengthen that ever-important bond between the dog and his human family. I hear it’s lots of fun, too! A well-mannered, obedient dog will be welcomed most anywhere you take him. Though a fenced yard would be the ideal place for me to romp and play safely, if that’s not an option then lots of daily leash walks and opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park is the next best thing. A tired dog is a good dog! Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental stimulation – think puzzle toys and games. I'm also affectionate, even-tempered, gentle and sometimes a bit on the goofy side - hey, I'm a puppy! Oh, and my foster allows me to jump on the furniture so if that's not allowed at my forever home, you'll have to teach me the "off" command. And once I tried climbing over the patio furniture to get to the fence - just wondering what might be on the other side.

We puppies are a lot of work and require a strong commitment to teaching us obedience, socializing us with other dogs and people, playing with us and loving us to pieces. It takes a lot of time, energy and patience to bring us up - and it’s totally worth it! Are you ready to take me on? Fill out an application today for Roo - that's "r" "o" "o," Roo. My people will be in touch soon!

**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.
