Story
Digger is a petite, 4 yr old female pit mix that came to us from TX. We think she could have some Jack Russell in her too! Originally found roaming in southern Texas , this girl lived in an outside kennel for several months in southern TX.  She is so happy to now be in a foster home. She is housebroken and happy to hang out on a dog bed while her foster parents work.  She loves squeaky toys and napping. She needs to be the only pet in the home. Digger is being fostered in Southern CT. ##795053##

Story
I’m Tamale! I’m about two years old. My rescue thinks I’m a chihuahua mix. Since I’ve arrived at foster care in May 2022, I’ve learned so much! I know how to sit, “touch,” lie down, and come when called. I’m very curious and loving. I love to play fetch and tug. My favorite thing to do is chew on a toy until I fall asleep on my foster’s lap. I love cuddling! I'm living and thriving in my foster home with another female dog! We play and even cuddle on the couch. In my previous foster home, I was pretty stressed by the resident cats. I would do best in a home with no cats and no children. I’d love a home where I can go on long walks in the woods and play ball. I also enjoy car rides. I love hiking with all my dog friends in a big group! I have a ton of love to give, I just need a family of my own. Please apply if you want to be my family. Neutered, up to date on vaccines, house trained, crate trained, and healthy! Currently being fostered in Trumbull, CT.

Story
Cooper was adopted from Sterling Brook Farms breeder. He turned 6 in February of 2024 and is a very sweet and gentle dog. He is on Prozac due to anxiety but I believe it’s because we travel so much due to travel hockey and he is home with dog sitters. We are looking for someone to take amazing care and spend the time with Cooper that he deserves.

Story
Cleo is a sweet 10 year old dog who is small, 20 lbs and quiet, very friendly and not demanding. She is calm and enjoys lounging around the house moving from one doggy bed to the next--she MUST have a bed to feel safe! She is always up for a short walk and is equally as happy to come back home again. She rarely barks. Her DNA test says she is Pom, Lhasa Apso, Am Eskimo and Shih Tzu. Cleo is the perfect companion for a retiree. She will sit on your lap, but her happy place is a dog bed beside you. She gets along with other dogs , but does not know how to play. Cleo is house broken, but she must go outside every couple of hours. Incontinence medication keeps her dry at night. She was neglected for many years before we got her. As a result she has a chronic yeast infection which require a weekly bath. She also tends to get ear infections so she gets special meds. Cleo does require some work, but the rewards outweigh the work for the right home for this beautiful little girl
