Story
Hello New York… and surrounding areas… My name is Buster and I am a handsome white scruffy Terrier mix, about 6 years old, 25 lbs, and I was originally rescued from a dog pound in Staten Island when I was just a youngster. I lived a good life with my owner but unfortunately, she became ill and passed away just before Thanksgiving. I have been staying in a foster home since then, readjusting and doing well, so now I am ready to move on and find a new forever home. I’m a people dog, happy and friendly, shy when first meeting, but once I know you I’m good to go. I am indifferent towards other dogs and enjoy being solo in my home and playing by myself or with my people. Tug-o-war is my favorite but I also love to play fetch and I enjoy having unstuffed soft toys to play with, unless you don’t mind me taking the stuffing out myself. I love little dog treats and string cheese in the afternoons after my walk and right now I’m going for walks twice a day and I love it. I love cuddles and pets and sitting beside you while we watch TV. I don't mind being groomed and will sit patiently while being brushed and having my ears cleaned. I’m just a good boy and my foster parents say I have good manners, never begging for food or stealing yours if you leave it out. I’m housebroken, only bark to alert, and don't dig in the yard, or chew inappropriately. I don't suffer from separation anxiety while you are away, although I am mighty happy and wagging so hard my entire body wiggles when you get home and walk through the door. I like going for rides in the car with the window down just enough for me to smell the world going by and sleeping in bed with my people. I am looking forward to a new beginning in a home I can call my own, providing love, companionship, and a bit of security when I bark to tell you a stranger is at the door. I’m already residing in your neck of the woods so let's meet and get this party started! * We encourage you to email us your #1, #2, and #3 choices, and we will be happy to help you find a pup to complete your family! Also, please continue watching our listings as we post new dogs multiple times a week. There is no need to fill out another application, just let us know what other dogs you are interested in as they come up.

Story
Hi there, my name is Baby and I am a spunky and friendly little Min Pin/Chihuahua mix, 8 months old, 5 lbs and I was a gift to an elderly lady in San Antonio Texas. She was sweet and I enjoyed my time with her but she wasn't healthy enough to care for me, so she surrendered me to a friend who is now fostering me for 4 Little Paws Rescue. Whew, long story, but to sum up, I’m happy and healthy, now spayed and vaccinated and ready to be adopted in or near Connecticut. :-) I may be tiny but my little body is packed with personality and charm. I’m silly and sweet, with a passion for Pup Cups and sticks. Yes, sticks. I know it sounds goofy but I love bringing my foster mom sticks. Big sticks, small sticks, I love to collect them and I’m pretty sure she must need them for something. I’m in love with life and it shows. I have boundless enthusiasm, love all people, love playing with doggy friends, love doggy toys, love going for walks, love going for car rides to get my beloved pup cups, and love sharing kisses. I’m housebroken if I can get out the door, I only bark to alert you, I walk very nicely on a leash, and I would be extra happy to have a built-in doggy playmate in my new forever home. If you have been dreaming of an itty-bitty pup with lightning-fast speed and a heart of gold, I’ll be in your arms next week! * We encourage you to send us an email with your #1, #2, and #3 choices, and we will be happy to help you find a pup to complete your family! Also, please continue watching our listings as we post new dogs multiple times a week. There is no need to fill out another application, just let us know what other dogs you are interested in as they come up.

Story
This adorable big-eyed girl is Hattie!  She is a chihuahua mix girl born around the middle of November. Hattie is a lively girl who loves to play and run.  If you are looking for a couch potato, Hattie is probably not your girl.  But if you are looking for a fun personality who is ready for an adventure, Hattie fits the bill. Hattie loves toys, lots of toys.  She loves a good game of tug.  She likes people and other dogs.  Hattie does like to sit in a lap, but only if she is tired and ready for a nap. She has not been outside lately as the weather has been very cold, but she is using a pad consistently to do her business.  We're not sure what Hattie is mixed with but the puppy weight chart says her adult weight will be 20-25 pounds.  This sweet girl is just waiting to meet you and cover you with puppy kisses. If you are interested please email Critter Cavalry Rescue at ccrtennessee@gmail.com  PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or ccrnewengland@gmail.comFebruary 27, 2024, 12:49 pm
