Story
Cosmo is a super smart, affectionate, athletic dog. We are so sad to have to make this decision, but Cosmo is anxious around our toddler and would do best in a home without young children. He has his basic training down (sit, down, stay, come, etc.), has good recall off-leash, and is good with other dogs in the park off-leash (though he would probably be best in a home with only one dog), and is crate-trained. He is extremely trainable and bright, loves people, and adds lots of energy and joy to any home.

These pups are in Boston, Massachusetts too!

Story
Adoptable in: MA, RI, NH, CT, and VTGood with dogs: Yes, with proper introsGood with cats: NoGood with kids: Kids 16 +Crate trained: YesHouse trained: YesLilac is a sweet, lazy girl who is looking for a quiet home where she can play some fetch and then curl up in the dog bed and take a nap (her two favorite things). Lilac is wonderful with other dogs when properly introduced, and she loves to play. She would love a fenced yard to romp in. She can be leash reactive to new dogs, and though she has improved with training, this will always be something she needs to work on. For this reason, proper intros are a must with her.  She is also ecollar trained. so her perfect home would continue this training with her. She excels with structure and routine.Where Lilac still struggles greatly is with meeting new people in the home. Outside the home, and even a the vet, she is generally fine. When people that she does not know very very well come into the home, Lilac should be crated, leashed, or muzzled. She needs to be slowly introduced to new people, but once she gets to know you very very well, she's all in and is the kissiest, snuggliest girl.  She is even very sweet to pretty much everyone while muzzled, so that's an easy fix to keep her safe.  When people she does not know come into the home, she can get vocal,  but when introduced while muzzled she does fine.  Because of her reactivity to new people, a single family home is the best fit for her. She would not do well in an apartment. Lilac has had a long road, and while she has come a long way, she is very much still a work in progress. With the right family she will do just fine.Lilac's issues have happened in the past when her intros to new people coming into the home were not controlled.  So I can't emphasize enough that she needs to take it slow with new people :) But she will reward you for sure once you get to know her.Age: 9 yearsWeight: 45 lbsPlease Note: All dogs are posted until they are officially adopted.

Story
Adoptable in: MA, RI, NH, CT, and VTGood with dogs: Yes, with proper introsGood with cats: Yes, dog-savvy catsGood with kids: Yes, 13+Crate trained: YesHouse trained: YesMaggye Moo is a lovable, funny gal who is ready to join many adventures with you! She is doing well adjusting to northern life, her foster shares, “Maggye is a spirited gal who is the life of the party. She can be your go-to buddy for hiking and activities- the possibilities are endless. Maggye would make a great addition to any home who’s excited to continue her training and show her the world!”Maggye is a medium-high energy gal who loves to play fetch and romp around the yard but then is ready to cuddle on the couch by her humans. She gets along well with other dogs and is still learning to take cues, so she’d be fine with another canine sibling in the home with similar energy levels. She has been neutral with cats, so she’d likely be fine with a dog-savvy cat in the home. As Maggye is learning boundaries, she would likely be fine with older (13+) kids. She is a smart girl, as she knows several commands including ‘sit’ and ‘place’. Maggye is crate trained and housetrained. She can be crated occasionally in the day after sufficient exercise, and sleeps in there overnight without any issues. Maggye is housetrained with no accidents in the past few weeks and will continue to do well when taken out on a regular structure and routine. She is improving on her leash skills and enjoys her daily walks. Maggye will thrive with a patient owner who can uphold structure and boundaries to set her up for success as she navigates her new environment.Maggye’s zest for life and beautiful green eyes will have you falling in love in no time- is she the one for you?Please Note: All dogs currently available for adoption are posted on our website.
