Meet your new little buddy Moe (he came in with the name LoBo, but we are calling him Moe). Moe looks to be a Pug mix that is approximately 5 years old. He is a four-legged casanova! He loves women and will seek them out for attention when he's out and about. He loves to cuddle with his foster mom and will put his head on her neck to snuggle up. We have observed him in limited situations with men, and he displays nervousness, growling and uncertainty in those situations. As such, we are thinking that a female-only household might be best for him, along with a commitment to desensitization and counter-conditioning work to help him feel more comfortable around men. Obedience training will help Moe and his new owner ways of teaching him to be less stressed and more trusting of men. He does well with the other dogs in his foster home. He is fine with cats, as long as they don't run, if they do he will chase after them. He was nervous at first with the elementary-school-aged child that came to visit, but warmed up very quickly and willingly took yogurt from her within minutes. He LOVES car rides and his size makes him very portable. He can be protective over the car, when someone walks by he will bark. He has low energy, but he still plays with toys and the other dogs in his foster home. A fenced yard would be a plus, but he also wouldn't mind going outside on a leash.
There's a perfect home out there for Moe. Is it yours? If so, please fill out an application and you may be getting a new love in your life named Moe!
Update 1/29/17: Moe went to an adoption event and he was very nervous. A positive note is that Moe did okay with men that approached him slowly, he didn't even growl. He also met some school-age children and had no issues with them. His favorite part of the day was the car ride and the drive-thru for an ice cream cone!
Update 4/9/17: Moe is definitely making progress in being comfortable around men. He really just needs someone who'll let him settle in. He spent a couple of nights in a different foster home while his foster mom was out of town and after some growly behavior the first night, he let the male roommate walk him, feed him and even pet him some!
Update 4/29/17: Moe is now doing really well at adoption events! He likes to have a hiding place or someone to cuddle with. He's interested in children of all ages, but we would be hesitant about kids who would get in his face. He's also letting strangers come up and pet him, including men!

**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.
