Story
Sergej is a gentle, handsome, and loving Lab 5 yrs of age. We've had him since he was a two month pup. Our child grew up sleeping with him. He is an awesome companion, loves being around people, loves cuddling, playing fetch, swimming in ponds. He is very well trained and obedient. Sergej lives indoors and loves going out for any sort of activity. We've had a life changing event and can no longer keep him. I'm happy to work with the potential adopter to help acclimate Sergej and offer any support needed for him to accomodate. Like any Lab, Sergej is low maintenance and thrives on cuddles. Would love to find him a good permanent home. Thank you for your consideration. Best regards, Galeb

Story
Koa is a "lilac tri" Olde English Bulldog. He comes from Olde South Bulldogges in South Carolina. He will be 4 yeas old June 15th. Koa has good basic training (sit, stay, loose leash walking), and is fully housebroken since he was a puppy. He is very loving and smart. Recently, he has shown some aggression/domination towards members of the household, and with a new baby in the house we are not comfortable with him being there. He has some chronic health issues (skin allergies, ear infections) and we think that when these are bothering him, he tends to be more aggressive. He has shown some aggression to other male dogs, but generally is not too reactive to other dogs. We believe he would be best in a house with just one or two adults who have experience with large breed dogs, and someone who can stay on top of his medical issues. In this case, we think he would be a fantastic lifelong companion.

Story
Meet Kodiak! Clever, charming, handsome, athletic, snuggly ... there are not enough adjectives to capture how special this boy is! Kodiak typically needs a little time to warm up to new people to help his winning personality shine through, he will need a family who understands his needs and can take things at his pace. Do not worry, our staff will walk you through all of the specifics! He could likely live with older kids, and may enjoy the company of a patient dog friend. If you think this dog could be a good match for your home and would like to learn more, stop by our Boston Adoption Center. We have open adoption hours Tuesday-Sunday from 12pm-3pm no appointment needed to speak to a staff person regarding available dogs. Preparing your home for your new dog or puppy ahead of time can help ease the transition for your new pet and set you both up for success should there be a dog thats a good match! To learn more about how to make the first few weeks with your new dog or puppy the most successful it can be, please visit www.mspca.org/petresources. For more information on our adoption process, please visit https://www.mspca.org/adoption-centers/how-to-adopt/ Please note, in an effort to keep the stress levels reduced for the dogs in our care, our dog kennel areas will not be open to walk through. Interested adopters will work with a matchmaker on staff to determine which dog(s) they are interested in and if we can identify a match, potential adopters will be able to meet those dogs outside of the kennel. Cat and small animal areas will remain open to walk through.

Priscilla5 Months OldSpayed FemaleMeet Priscilla! This young lady can be a little shy at first when meeting new people, but blossoms into a social butterfly after getting to know you. She could benefit from having a quieter-traffic home and a family that can work at her pace as she first settles in. As Priscilla gets more confident, she’ll be sure to show you all her favorite toys! Priscilla could do well with a confident, tolerant dog friend who can help show her the ropes, a dog-savvy cat with a slow introduction, and children!If you think you are a good fit and would like to learn more, stop by our Boston Adoption Center.
