My personality

My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Staff & volunteer favorite, Abbey is 1.5 years old, potty trained, and an all around Very Good Girl. She gets along great with other dogs when she is out and about and she is SO happy to meet new people. Abbey has a moderate energy level, she is smart, eager to please, and walks nicely on the leash- the total package. While Abbey is fantastic, she does need an adopter that is comfortable and willing to work with her on some resource guarding issues. Abbey was adopted as a puppy and likely when she exhibited resource guarding behaviors they were not corrected, so rather than learning how to manage those insecure feelings about toys & food being taken from her, that behavior was allowed to continue. Now, Abbey needs a household that is dog savvy enough to respect her boundaries when she has food/ toys and is willing to work with a trainer to teach Abbey appropriate responses to her feelings of concern over someone taking away her food/ toys. We know every potential adopter isn't up for this, but we also know that the right adopter will be rewarded for their efforts when they are able to add this amazing dog to their household. While Abbey is great meeting kids and playing with other dogs outside of her home, due to her resource guarding issues she does need a home without other animals or children that may not be respectful of her toys/ food. Abbey is a great dog and she will blossom in the right environment. If you think that might be you, we'd love to chat with you about Abbey!

Abbey is spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and current on flea/tick and heartworm preventative. This dog has tested negative for heartworms. The adoption fee is $450 if your adoption is prepaid and final prior to your dog's arrival. An additional $50 will be charged on dogs that are picked up from our Southbury CT adoption center, adopted at an event, or foster home. This additional fee is necessary in order to comply with CT HB 5368.

WANT TO MEET OUR DOGS IN PERSON? Check the Events tab on for all weekend adoption event info. The majority of the dogs marked as 'meet me' will be there to see you!

If you are a MA resident, your new family member is required to go through a mandatory 48 hour quarantine period at our Woburn MA isolation facility. Your new family member will be dropped off by our transport on Thursday and will be ready for you to pick him/her up on Saturday between 11 am-1 pm. An additional $100 fee will be added for any dogs picked up from the Woburn MA quarantine facility. This additional fee is necessary in order to comply with MA Order 405-CD-12 and Order 1-AHO-05.

More about this rescue

CPR was formed in 2004 to assist unwanted pups and dogs with finding a new home. We rescue our pups from high kill shelters in TN and MS. Without the dedication of the staff and volunteers of these shelters and without the assistance of CPR, the pups posted on our website would not be rescued.
We also assist families with unwanted litters of pups by placing the pups and spaying their mommy dog to stop the cycle of unwanted puppies. When funds are available, we spay/neuter personally owned pets when asked for assistnce.
We rescue and rehome 200+ pups and dogs each month. We accomplish this task with the help of an awesome hard working and dedicated staff and volunteer base. Also helping us to accomplish what seems at times to be a thankless and overwhelming job is our pure and selfless love of dogs! We truly believe that rescue + rehoming = true love. <3
