Story
My partner and I adopted Tango about four months ago. We were told he was social, good with dogs and cats, great at dog parks/doggie daycare, etc. He seemed perfect for us as we have two cats and another small dog who are all rescues. Sadly, this has not been the case. Tango has shown high levels of reactivity to both our cats and to certain dogs. He has problems with resource guarding and has lunged/growled/barked/snapped at all members of our family. He has never broken skin, but we do worry. He has not been friendly to guests and struggled at doggie daycare. Tango is highly food motivated and has responded well to basic command and potty training with only a few recent accidents inside. Tango is also crate trained. We feel like Tango can thrive in a low-key home and with adequate training. There is no adoption fee because we would rather you spend the money on getting him training. He loves head scratches, walks, and peanut butter. Please consider this handsome boy! He deserves it.

Story
Dozer is an Alaskan malamute who has the personality of one. He is an older dog of an age of 10. He loves belly rubs. Oddly he doesn't like to be out in the rain. He does have a sensitive stomach so we have found if you stick with the same food he does ok. We use the term that he acts like a goober most of the time. He barely barks except at the vacuum cleaner.

Story
Courtesy Post: Owner Surrender/Rehoming- Everett, MA Meet Kingston! He is a 4 year old Australian Shepherd and weighs 65 lbs. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots, and on heartworm prevention. Kingston is fearful of strangers. He is good with dogs! He hasn’t been tested around cats. No children, due to his reactivity! Kingston bit the owner’s father after he grabbed his collar because he was barking. He also bit the owner last year. This occurred while they were playing ball. Kingston jumped on the couch and bit the owner after he took the ball from him. The owner is surrendering him because they can’t provide the environment that he needs to thrive. He needs to find a new furever home as soon as possible! If you think you can provide a great home for Kingston, please contact the owner listed below. There is a $150 rehoming fee to assure good folks with good intentions. This fee will be donated to Australian Shepherds Furever for their assistance in placing Kingston. Owner’s Contact Information: Zach Herman at (978) 835-8175 or zfherman@verizon.net.

Story
Meet Darling Doug! Doug, a hairy hairless Chinese Crested, unique and rare, With his fluffy tufts and skin so bare. Though he may seem unconventional, it's plain to see, He's the perfect pup for you and me! At fourteen years old, he's a senior dog through and through, But age hasn't dimmed his spirit, it's still anew. His silly zoomies and tail-chasing will steal your heart, And from the very beginning, you'll never want to part. Though deaf, little Doug is full of good cheer, His other senses make up for his inability to hear. With a sideways gait and bunny ears so sweet, He's the cutest pup you'll ever meet! Doug recently lost his beloved human mom and dad, Who cherished him dearly, the only people he had. Before being fostered, he was scared, sad, and alone, Now he’s blossoming and looking for a family of his own. Having separation anxiety, he may bark and fuss, But as he learns to self-soothe, he'll gain more trust. The companionship of another dog would help him grow, Confidence and calmness, his buddy would show. He gets along with other pets, including felines, Doug is a solid eater, on kibble and wet food he dines. Living with incontinence, a challenge he faces, A belly band would help him with inside spaces. Though he struggles with stairs, they're quite a chore, But with a helping hand, he'll manage to explore. Grooming and skincare will ensure his naked body glows, And to keep him warm, he prefers to wear clothes. Doug is an affectionate pup, oh so snug, He’s twelve pounds of love, a real cuddle bug. He dreams of bedtime snoozing, right by your side, In his favorite fluffy bed, he'll happily abide. So if you're ready for a loyal friend, no lie, Darling Doug will be your best senior guy! (Yes, Doug has a very creative foster mom!) Doug needs a home where he is not alone much and has the company of another small gentle dog to give him confidence. He needs a forever home that understands deaf dogs and will give him a peaceful, quiet home to live out his senior years. He is a very special little man! (Doug is being fostered in Western PA)

Story
Meet Griffin. He's a frisky and fun one and a half year-old Chinese Crested who came to us as an owner surrender. He's loving life in his foster home as he waits to find a family of his own. Griffin is very puppy like in terms of his temperament! He's playful and energetic and loves his toys. Griffin is great with other dogs unless food is involved. He loves to eat, and even with a slow feeder dish he's the first one finished and tries to steal food from the others. It's best to feed him separately! It takes him a minute to warm up to a new face but once he does, he becomes a Velcro dog who stays close to his person and would not be happy in a "no dogs on the furniture" type of household. Griffin is a lapdog and loves to cuddle. He also takes his job as watchdog very seriously and he loves to exercise his freedom of speech whenever someone comes to the door or walks by the house, so he's not a great candidate for apartment living. He's also super fast and can never be allowed off leash. He's a smart boy who learns quickly, and is doing fantastic with leash training and house training. He has no health issues that we know of and he certainly has plenty of energy. Griffin would be happiest in an adult only home with a single person or a couple, who could continue his training, show him patience and kindness until he settles in, and appreciate this silly, quirky, boy and how special he is. (Griffin is being fostered in New England)

Story
Could Zoey be the wild child you've been searching for? Zoey is a 4-year-old Catahoula mixed lady, looking for an active, high-energy breed savvy family to be her people. She came to us as a stray, so we don't know what the beginning chapters of her life looked like. We suspect somebody got her without realizing her high energy and crazy personality and she became too much. Zoey is definitely still young and nutty at heart, her favorite go-to greeting is pogo stick jumping to give face kisses. She'd love to find a family willing to guide her in her continued education, she could use a crash course on all the basic manners and skills. Zoey would thrive being the only animal in her forever home, all the undivided attention just for her. She loves to chase and seems to have a natural hunting instinct when it comes to small animals. Zoey has been working on her leash reactivity around other dogs, but can be very vocal and reactive when seeing them out and about. Luckily, she is VERY food motivated so that'll help in her future training endeavors.
