Story
Meet Margot!! Margot is an 8-9 months old Australian Kelpie or Shepherd mix with a sweet disposition. She loves toys and LOVES the water. This girl could swim or splash in a puddle all day. Currently weighs 25lbs, she is expected to be around 35-40lbs fully grown. We know she is a mix due to her smaller size but her demeanor is all Shepherd. She was found at 5 months as a stray, so training was late in her development. She is working hard on potty training. This little girl is very smart and loyal, she will be attached to her person. Hopping in the car, going on walks, laying next to you while you cook dinner- she wants to be with her people. And she loves dogs and kids! Prefers women, but if patient man that can give her a week or so to learn to trust him. Margot is crate trained, knows basic commands and walks well on a leash. She also has good recall so she does well off leash too. She has puppy energy and needs at least two walks a day. We think she would do best with another dog but could do fine as an only pet as well. She is best suited for an experienced dog owner. Margot, is healthy, up to date on shots and is spayed. Margot is located in New England and ready as can be to head to her new home! The adoption donation is $400 . If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please go to www.angelsamongusanimalrescue.org and fill out an online adoption application. Thank you!

Meet Piper! Piper is a super friendly adult dog. She was surrendered because her furry sibling decided to beat her up and did a number on this sweet girl! She still has some scarring on her chest and a little on her face to show what she went through ! To keep her safe her family decided it was best to rehome her. Piper hasn't let any of this get her down or change her sweet outgoing friendly nature. She is just the sweetest happy dog! Piper is medium size, only 41 pounds, and a pretty brindle. She is spayed, up to date on shots and on HW and flea/tick preventatives. Piper is 8 years old and would be a wonderful addition to any home looking for a happy balanced dog!

Story
Meet Petey! Petey is a vey loving and handsome Lab mix that was found as a stray. He is looking to bond and be someone's best friend! He has already become very attached to his foster mom and is stressed when she leaves him. He loves to hug and be snuggled with. Petey is high energy but one of those types that needs a quick burst of running and then is happy to settle down and chew on a toy beside his human BFF. He was clearly loved by someone and loves people. He would do well as a hiking buddy or even with agility. He would be best suited for a family or owner that can be home with him much of the time as he is adept at climbing a fence if left in a yard to hang out alone too long! Petey is about 1-2 years old, 60 pounds and heartworm negative. He has been neutered and micro chipped now. Petey is crate trained and house broken! From his foster mom: Petey, full of puppy-love at 60 pounds, is a highly athletic, energetic, water-loving, big-ole best friend kind o’ Boxer/Labrador boy. At two years old, he runs like the wind and leaps into the truck-bed in a single bound for treks around the farm fields. He has come a long way from being totally overwhelmed with separation anxiety - aftermath of being dumped and left in freezing weather totally alone. He has turned out to be a companion animal in every way. He is at perfect peace and happiness just being with his people and fellow-animal friends, including cats (with proper introduction). Once he enters the house, he settles quickly and rests at his person’s feet. This snuggle-bunny thinks all kids were designed to be his ‘besties’. Other dogs seem to find it difficult to take him seriously when he tries to act big-man dominate and at the same time holding his squeaky ragdoll in his mouth. He really has no idea of his size. When Petey gets to playing to rough, the foster’s 20-pound Chihuahua/Beagle mix can scold him and Petey will put on his best pout and try to be still. This joyfully irresistible, big brown-eyed, sweetheart is highly observant – he works to learn his people. If he thinks he is in trouble or has displeased his person, he becomes anxious and will tear up things if he is ignored or not reassured of being loved. Correct him, but love him. Hug him. Relieve him of any fear. That means the world to him. And, his smile is infectious. Petey is very trainable. He is a quick study and eager to please the people he grows to trust. Toys and a secure extra-large kennel to call his own keep him calm when you are away. Another dog-friend that would be his buddy is a good source of comfort for him. Being alone for extended periods of time will be detrimental to Petey’s psyche. Because Petey is so extraordinarily sociable, he shouldn’t be left alone in a fenced area, unless it has a cover. He will jump/climb over to find you and/or if someone or another animal passes by that surely needs his nonaggressive, let’s-play greeting. Petey is a work in progress and would need someone who truly wants to make him a part of the family. If you have much affection, attention, compassion and patience to offer, along with a desire to have an athletic canine companion, Petey may just be your dream come true. Petey is currently in TN but will be transported north to New England for adoption. The adoption donation is $300 which includes a health certificate and costs for his transport north.
