Story
Bear is a 5 year old, neutered German Shepherd. He is good with people of all ages and enjoys giving lots of licks. He loves cuddling and is a big couch potato, but he does enjoy walks in nature and wants to be by your side wherever you go. He does have separation anxiety as well as anxiety with loud noises such as vehicles and fireworks. Otherwise he is a fairly quiet, laidback dog. He has had a history of living with cats but of course as with any animal, he needs to be introduced properly if he is going to a home with cats. He is housetrained and would do best with a loving, understanding family that can give him all the pets and companionship he needs. Please reach out if you're the forever home Bear has been looking for!!

Story
Ben is a loving dog. He is just over a year old but he's just as playful as when he was 3 months old. This is a dog you will fall in love with, as I have. He is so friendly and loves everyone he meets. He loves to play with his toys and has a blast in the backyard. He loves to run, he can run laps around the backyard. He is so silly, he has the funniest expressions and when he wants some love he will give you his paw. (My heart does backflips every time). He's loyal and showers you with affection even if you've been gone for 30 mins. He will lay next to you, while you are cooking or doing your work and keep you company He is a great dog and deserves a good home. He is crate-trained and trained to use the bathroom outside. A good home for Ben aka Bubba, would be one that has other animals that he can play with, someone who can give him attention, and someone who will play with him and take him for hikes sometimes because he loves to explore.

Story
Emma is a love bug she loves to cuddle and sleep under the blankets in bed she’s not really a kisser. We got her at 3 months from a farm where she was unsocialized even so she loves everyone. She is a mix of beagle, border terrier, dachshund and Yorkie. The problem is she is an alpha female and we already have one recently they started fighting and hurting each other. So sadly I must rehome Emma. They are separated and this is taking a toll on both their personalities.Emma is starting to withdraw she is not her usual bubbly self it is breaking my heart. She gets car sick and stressed in the car and drools a lot so recently we haven’t gone places with her unless needed. She seems ok with male dogs I would never trust her around a female dog. I don’t know about cats mine hides from her. She has a prey drive and barks and chases squirrels. She is used to a fenced yard and loves to run . I don’t know how she would be around small children. She has no food or toy aggression. Please help her

Sweet , loving dog. Looking for a new family to love her. She was abandoned on dead end road where she was found and put in a temporary home. There she was waiting to see if she had a family that was missing her. Unfortunately none came for her. She is now ready to meet her new family. She just learned to play fetch and what a goofball. She enjoys running around outside and acting silly. She also loves being in your lap getting lots of love . Please adopt her !! She can not wait to meet you.

Story
Chip - Needs foster or forever home Male About 1-1/2 years old Walks well on a leash Knows basic commands House trained Crate trained Needs to be an only pet Needs an adult home Up to date with vaccines Neutered Chip came into the rescue in July as an owner surrender. He is currently living with a foster-based trainer and is ready to move to a foster home Chip is a sweet, loving boy who wants badly to please :) He can be shy at first with people he doesn't know, but given a few minutes - and especially given a few treats - he warms up quickly. He needs a home with a family experienced with the breed, who will give him time to relax and settle into a new home. Chip would love an active family to take him out and about and continue to introduce him to new people, places and things. He would enjoy a fenced yard where he can run and play in nice weather.

Story
Fiona needs a new foster or foster-to-adopt home. About three years old, Fiona came from a large hoarding situation. She is a shy, gentle girl who needs TLC and time to get comfortable in a home. Fiona loves other dogs and we would like to see her in a home with at least one other dog. The activity level of small children would scare her, so an adult home or one with older children would be ideal. She needs a home with a securely fenced yard, and a family who has experience and patience. To foster or foster-to-adopt Fiona please fill out our application - https://www.furryfriendsct.org/foster-application NOTE: Foster or foster-to-adopt families must be located within the state of Connecticut.
