This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped.

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 who is approximately 5 years old. He loves his people and will shower them with cuddles, kisses and affection.  He loves to cuddle and will put his head on his foster mom's neck to snuggle up. 

Moe is housetrained and co-exists nicely with the other dogs. He doesn't really play with them or with toys, maybe because he's older or maybe because he just prefers the company of people. He is fine with cats, as long as they don't run - if they do he will chase after them. He can be nervous at first with young children, but just like with strangers, going slow and having tasty treats wins Moe over quickly.  Moe LOVES walks as well as car rides (especially to get doggy ice cream) and his size makes him very portable. He can be protective over the car - when someone walks by he will bark. This can be worked on and will likely improve as his confidence builds.  A fenced yard would be a plus, but he also loves going outside on a leash. He LOVES his walks!

Moe has some underlying uncertainty and anxiety.  He has been on Prozac for a few months and this has really helped him handle the changes in his life.  In Moe's first foster home, he had limited exposure to men and new things, and he displayed some nervousness and growled when uncertain. In several successive foster homes, however, he has slowly been exposed to new situations and people, and he has been very tolerant of them.  Going slow and having some some high value treats like tasty chicken nuggets or hot dogs goes a LONG way with Moe - with those things, he is open to being anyone's best pal. 

Even though he has already made great progress, Moe will need continued work on building his confidence and creating positive associations with new situations and people.  Group training classes will help Moe with his confidence, and also help his people bond with him.  Moe's new home should plan to continue his Prozac for at least a few months after adoption (it costs less than $10/month) to help him through the transition.  He may always benefit from being on Prozac, or he may outgrow that tool.

Moe is an incredibly sweet and gentle soul, looking for an equally kind and patient home; is he the missing piece that you have been looking for?  If so, please fill out an application and you may be getting a new love in your life named Moe!

**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.
