This fetching lass is Trudy!
And she does LOVE to play fetch - she's really good at it, too! Trudy appears to be a Labrador Retriever/Red Heeler mix about a year and a half old. She has the intelligence of a Heeler and the temperament of a Lab, and at her full size of 45 lbs, she's so easy to care for! She's house trained and walks on a leash; crate training is a work in progress since she's not a big fan of confinement. Trudy's great with other dogs and has been tested with kids from the age of 6 years to 17 years, and did just fine. She likes chase, that is! She might be okay with a dog-savvy cat that didn't run from her. She's very playful and likes toys, is obedient, affectionate, eager to please, even-tempered and gentle. Trudy's a goofy girl who'll chase a single leaf that blows across her path, or pick a small rock up in her mouth, toss it into the air and then look at you with perfect glee in her eyes! She smiles constantly, looks you in the eye and waits for you to laugh. She loves it when her foster mom sings to her and begs for more (her foster mom says, "Now that's a silly dog!").
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 it also 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. Trudy already knows "sit" and would love to learn more stuff with you! Though she doesn’t necessarily require a fenced yard, she will need lots of daily walks and opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park which 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.
This smart, smiley, silly girl would love to make you laugh and enjoy life along with her! Fill out an application for Trudy today! Your heart will be so glad you did!

**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.
