Story
Brandi and her sister have been with us for quite a few months, their siblings have been adopted and doing great in their homes. She would love a home to call her own! She is currently in a home with other dogs and a cat and does wonderfully with everyone. Brandi can be shy at first, but is cuddly and loving once she gets to know you. She is very agile and would probably do great with some agility training! She is house trained and does great in a crate! She is looking for an active home who enjoys outdoor activities. She would love a fenced in yard because she loves to play outside. Right now, she is being fostered in Tennessee. The rescue lists in areas where transport is available.

Story
At 6 years old, she is a loyal and affectionate companion, particularly good with children, but notably protective. While she can acclimate to other dogs, her compatibility with cats remains uncertain. She is very protective, so it's best that you meet her at our property so we can give her a sense that all is well. We are eager to connect with families who can provide a nurturing environment for her. She deserves an active family. On a practical note, Camden enjoys walks two or three times daily and displays enthusiasm for more activity. She weighs 85 pounds and is vigilant and protective until assured of a person's safety. She is in great health and received all her shots in October. She has a manageable allergy that manifests as dry and itchy skin. We are actively treating with a prescription and working with her vet to move to an OTC option. As of 4/17/24, we are still looking for Camden a new home.

Story
I am looking to rehome my puppy Xavier. Xavier is very playful and he needs to learn all the things that puppies want to learn. He's a German Shepherd mixed with a Pitbull. He loves his cat siblings, they do not like him very much, however. He has all the puppy energy but is a good boy ready to learn and become a part of your family. I am rehoming him unfortunately due to landlord issues. Please reach out with any questions!

Story
Female, 2 years old, 49lbs Please note that since I am a rescue dog, my breed is a best guess and can only be verified via DNA test.   Good with: Dogs Not tested with: Cats, kids Hi! I'm Gingerbread! I'm a sweet, laid back girl who's ready to be your buddy! Getting up for a 5 am run? Awesome! Want to sleep in? No problem! Going out for brunch? I'll lay under the table and enjoy my own treat. Family game night? Deal me in! Farmers markets, hikes, shopping, car rides, I'm up for it all! I'll even help you do your taxes! Just kidding, my math skills are a little rusty.  But, I'm the best work from home buddy.  I'll snooze by your side while you crunch the numbers.   Speaking of crunching, I'm a big fan of treats.  I even know how to sit!  Based on my  foster mom's reaction, I'm pretty sure that's the coolest trick there is. I'm a smart cookie though, and I know a lot of other skills too.  I'm AMAZING on leash (seriously, I almost never pull), and I'm good about going potty in the same spot outside every time.  I pick up on house routines quickly, and am great about settling inside and outside of my crate. I'll admit, I don't love being left in my crate alone, when people go out (I have maybe been known to bark a little bit) or at night (I just feel safer on the floor next to my foster mom's bed, okay?).  We're working on it though, and I've made great progress already!  I typically settle down after about a minute of being left alone during the day.  As far as the overnights go, I'm so well-behaved that sleeping outside my crate while I'm still getting used to being there all night is no big deal.  I never try to chew things up, and I know that nighttime is for resting, not running around with my toys.   When I'm not out for a walk or snoozing I really like bully sticks, kongs, bones, and food puzzles. I love a challenge, and I'll work at something until I get it figured out. I really like having something to do, but I don't need to be entertained all the time.  I mean, staying busy is great, but have you tried sleeping?? Plus, I've got the routine of my day memorized, so I'm good to chill until my foster mom is done working.  Then I get all the attention!  As far as other dogs go, I like them fine, but most days I really don't have time to play. A quick sniff is usually enough for me.  My foster mom thinks that I'm a little shy about playing since I'm still settling into life in the city, and that I'll be more interested in having doggie friends as time goes on.  I'm pretty sure she's right, but for now I love playing with the humans in my life!   I think that's everything you need to know about me! In short, if you're looking for a canine bestie to be your co-pilot, look no further than Gingerbread!

Story
My name is Bella Mia and as you can see, I am a beautiful golden girl that smiles and welcomes everyone I meet with an open heart of friendship.  I am a German Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix that is obviously going to be large and just bigger to love.  They say I was born around February 11, 2023 and for sure I am still very much a puppy even though I weigh 76 pounds.  They whisper behind my back and say that “she is a very smart girl” and that makes me want to be even smarter.  I try to keep my sweet personality showing out there 24/7 even though I am competing for attention from my other large and in charge siblings.  I am learning things but my foster family is busy and they are just maintaining good care for me and my large siblings.  I have energy to burn and I need a fenced yard to run in and someone that will focus on teaching me.  I need a loving and training oriented family who loves to bring a dog from A to Z status.  I survived a very tough start in life and am one of 12 siblings.  Only six of us survived.  I like fun, lots of activity and the hustle and bustle of family.  I need a fenced yard that is 6 ft. tall and it would be best to have me with children who are over 8 years of age because of my large exuberant size.  I am a well-rounded girl that will make your home much more Fun and loving.  If you are interested in making me a part of your life, please contact Critter Cavalry Rescue at ccrnewengland@gmail.com PLEASE NOTE:   Our dogs and cats are fostered in Tennessee and can transport weekly up to the Northeast region.  Request an application and learn more about Critter Cavalry at https://www.crittercavalry.com/adoption.April 16, 2024, 8:14 am
