Story
Ellie Rose Is spayed/neutered, up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations, treated for all of the intestinal parasites, and current on flea/tick and heartworm preventative. Because intestinal parasites are cyclical, your puppy may need additional treatment once you get him/her home. This is common and nothing to be alarmed about. Puppies and dogs need to be treated periodically for parasites throughout their entire lives. Visit our website to see our weekend Events here! Pup’s with the designated “meet me” next to their names are in CT and ready to attend adoption events. Please check with your adoption coordinator if you are interested in a specific dog prior to coming to an event, as a dog's availability to attend can change at any time. We can not guarantee approval on site at the events, so we recommend applying ahead of time. You can apply at the event, but the application process may not be able to be completed the same day. If you are not pre-approved, you are still welcome to come and meet pups at the event! The adoption fee is $600 which includes spay/neuter, up to date vaccinations, flea/tick and heartworm preventatives, and the mandatory CT HB 5368 fee. More and more of our adopters are having fun with DNA tests on their pups. You might ask yourself why our breed guess is varying degrees of difference from the DNA tests. Most of our puppies are rescued from high kill shelters or other abandonment situations and we have no info on parents. When we rescue puppies that have no background info, we make our very best educated guess as to breed mix and age. Our guesstimate comes from years and years and years of animal welfare work and training, but our guesses won't always agree with your vet, your neighbor, your DNA test, etc. The most important thing to know about your puppy's breed mix is that most likely he/she is a Super Lovable Mutt made of many many many different breeds. If you are a MA resident, your new family member is required to go through a mandatory 48 hour quarantine period at the Woburn MA isolation facility. Your new family member will be dropped off by our transport on Thursday and will be ready for you to pick him/her up on Saturday between 11 am-1 pm. An additional $100 fee will be added for any dogs picked up from the Woburn MA quarantine facility. This additional fee is necessary in order to comply with MA Order 405-CD-12 and Order 1-AHO-05. TO APPLY PLEASE GO TO www.cprdogs.com. If your application was successfully submitted you will get an automatically generated confirmation email. Please DO NOT USE the ADOPTAPET "CONTACT THIS RESCUE GROUP" form below or you may not hear from us as these often end up in spam or bouncing back. After receipt of your application, an adoption counselor will then be in touch to answer your questions about this pup, discuss the adoption process and get the ball rolling!

Goldilocks with her award winning ears will be a very fun addition to any loving family! She's about 4 months old and very social and loving. She loves to play with her doggy friends and loves all the nice people she meets. Her ears will be a conversation starter at the doggy park for sure.

Story
Harvey is a young purebred Golden Retriever who will melt your heart within 30 seconds. In addition to being stunning, he has a gentle soul. At just eight months old, he was given for free to a woman by a breeder who felt he was the answer to the problems the woman was having with another Golden from the same breeder. Animal Control got involved when the older Golden was found wandering in town, and when they found Harvey hiding under a table at her home, they convinced her to surrender both dogs, and Sunshine was asked to help. (The older Golden has found a new home.) Now with a wonderful SGRR foster, Harvey is coming out of his shell and gaining confidence. The resident dog, Mack, is his good friend and mentor, a relationship that took about two minutes to begin! Harvey is enjoying running in the large, fenced yard and letting his inner puppy be free, with Mack by his side. In just a few days, Harvey has come a long way. He is quickly picking up on basic commands and is making real progress adapting to life indoors. He now watches TV as long as he can sit next to his foster Mom! He gets much of his confidence from the love and guidance he is receiving from his foster family. In less than a week, Harvey has gone from drooling and trembling all over, to running around, wagging his tail, seeking affection, and playing with toys! Sadly, in the eight months, Harvey was with the breeder, he did not benefit from any basic training, including spending time indoors. He is now learning that it is ok to go through doorways, the TV is not a scary monster, and a leash is for guidance, not punishment. He is working on house training and trying hard to please. His wish is for a fenced yard and another dog(s) in the home to mentor him. Harvey is a gentle, submissive dog who needs to gain self-confidence. Like any puppy, it's all about play right now but he also wants to feel loved and when he cautiously leans into you for pets your heart will melt. He has some catching up to do, but if you are looking for a stunning young Golden and have the patience to work with Harvey, you will be getting an awesome Golden. Harvey is up to date on vaccinations and will be scheduled for his neuter surgery. If you have a fenced-in yard and another dog in the home and are looking for a sweet companion dog to share in your adventures, Harvey might be the perfect fit for you.

Story
Rosie is a lovely, calm, and happy purebred Golden Retriever who has lived with her human mom since she was a puppy. Unfortunately, her mom has run into financial difficulty and cannot afford to care for Rosie's needs. Rosie is well-loved and treated, and her mom is heartbroken to let her go. But she is putting Rosie first and we promised to find a loving home where Rosie will continue to receive the love and attention she has always known. Rosie is a classic, sweet, and affectionate Golden. She loves attention and is very friendly and social. She gets along great with other dogs, cats, and kids. Rosie is accustomed to a quiet home as it has just been Rosie and her mom. But this friendly girl loves to ride in the car and go for short walks. She knows commands to sit, paw, and lie down and thoroughly enjoys being by your side. Rosie loves her crate, door open, which is her safe place to hang out or nap. A crate is a must in her new home. The challenge Rosie faces is that she is hypothyroid and has been so for some time. This has left Rosie very overweight with a poor quality to her coat, and some hot spots. She has just started taking the medicine she needs, and with time, Rosie will lose her extra pounds, regain her shiny coat, and feel so much better in general. She will most likely remain on thyroid medicine, but it is not expensive care. Pretty Rosie will be a wonderful companion in a home where someone is home more often than not, possibly with another dog for company. She enjoys daily walks, and a yard to play in would be so nice for her to enjoy! Once she has some regular exercise and her thyroid medicine has had time to make a difference for her, she is going to be a beauty! At just 7 years of age, she will be more energetic than she has been for a while, and she can live her happiest life. Rosie is living in New England and is ready to meet you!

Story
I have an adoption pending but hope you will consider one of our other dogs in need. Expect to be stopped and asked, “What kind of dog is that?!?” should you be Coco's lucky adopter because this fellow is a real showstopper! His fuzzy-wuzzy coat is the color of chocolate mixed with golden flecks - just stunning! It's soft and silky and you will never want to stop petting him. And his eyes, oh, those hazel eyes, they grab your heart, and they don't let go! Coco is an incredibly cute guy, estimated to be about 4 years old and weighing around 44 lbs. He was found wandering down a road in Louisiana by a friend of one of our volunteers. When she took him to the shelter to be scanned for a microchip, they were able to locate Coco's original owners who had moved to Texas and couldn't take Coco with them. They rehomed him on their own and whoever he was with didn't take very good care to see to Coco's safety. Coco's original owners shared, "Coco is a really great dog! He knows how to "sit" on command and give his paw too. He is very loving and affectionate. We didn't want to rehome him in the first place, and I surely gave him to the wrong person. Thank you for taking him and helping find him a loving home. We miss him and love him dearly." Kinda breaks your heart, doesn't it? We have some wonderful details to share about Coco from his foster mom, Katie. - Great eater, doesn't seem picky with food or treats. Does take interest in human food when I'm eating but understands NO - Loves a car ride. He has been on several now. Last night I had a sweet tooth, so I took him through the Sonic drive though to get ice cream with me. The fellow at the window saw him and asked if he could have a pup cup. He seemed to know exactly what that was, so I said yes. So, we both had a sweet tooth last night he gobbled it right up in the back seat on the way home. - Friendly and loves to make new friends. Took him into a pet store to pick up some yummy treats and a toy that caught his eye. He was very friendly with everyone who said hello. He doesn't jump and understands sit. He did put his paws up out of excitement during checkout. Loves to offer a sitting handshake in exchange for his treats. - Great on a leash, doesn't seem to pull much. He is also petite so whatever pull he does have, it isn't overpowering. I am extra careful to not allow him to bolt as he, and all rescued dogs, are flight risks. He is quick to potty on a leash, no accidents inside, he goes and waits by the door to let me know if he wants out. - Toys, likes them but doesn't tear them apart. He has a very soft bite. - He is a cuddler and gives sweet kisses/hugs. He's great with eye contact. Overall, he seems like a happy boy. The best way to describe his personality, so far, is "gentle soul." He is so polite and gentle when he wants to communicate something. He follows me around from room to room when I am working; he sits under my desk by my feet. He seems to be alert to sounds coming from outside and goes to the door and makes a low-pitched bark or two out. He is easily calmed when told it's ok. - Seems to like watching TV. It's random, but I put on a nature documentary last night before bed and I think he was watching it with me! His eyes were locked in on the screen. He would get excited and pop his head up when he saw birds or other animals on the TV. - I did put him in a crate this morning when I was at the gym/went to the grocery store. He was super easy to put in the crate and was very calm when I returned and let him out. He seems like he is used to/comfortable with it. I have also left my house for a shorter amount of time and left him out. No issues, he was in my entry to greet me when I came home. Didn't eat or break anything. There you have it - one amazing dog!! Still, Coco is a bit bewildered about where he is and why he is not with his beloved family. Extreme care must be taken by his adopters to make sure he does not wander away again. Leashed walks would be best for this cutie pie, who has very nice leash-walking skills. Coco's cute expression seemed to ask, "Do you want to be my friend?" Coco loves his human friends and is good with other dogs. He has no history with cats while with our rescue but used to chase chickens in his former home. We expect he would be good with children over the age of 10. He truly wants to please and hear the words "good boy" spoken often. Coco keeps his kennel clean and truly is a good boy! Take a look at his video! Coco is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. He is under treatment for heartworms. He will be ready to travel north in mid-March to be directly adopted.

Story
Ruby came to our rescue along with Rio (who has found his forever home) as part of a retired breeding pair when their former owners in Louisiana could no longer care for them. We don't know how many litters Ruby had but her baby-making days are over now that she has been spayed! Ruby arrived at our rescue weighing 100 lbs, about 20-25 lbs overweight (but don't tell her we said that!), and is on inexpensive thyroid medication which will help manage her weight. She has lost 10+ lbs already! With a continued proper diet, thyroid medication, and gradual increase in exercise, this beauty will look slim and trim in time for swimsuit season. Ruby's foster mom shared some wonderful details about this special girl. "Ruby is a sweetheart. She just wants to love and be loved. She gives the best hugs and the second you sit down she is already squeezing up next to you for pets and kisses. She thinks she is lap dog size. After she settles down she eventually gives you more breathing room. One of her favorite things to do is to lay on the couch and watch movies with me. She is very laid-back and is all about her naps. She is very sweet with other dogs, big and small, and she seems to want to be social with them and play gently. Seems unbothered by cats when we are out and about. She is good with stairs and walks well on the leash, but does not like to go potty on a leash so she would do best with a fenced yard. She loves water and I'm sure she would love to take a dip and even put her head in her water bowl on occasion. Whoever adopts her is very lucky!" Ruby is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and has completed her heartworm treatment. She is in a foster home in the northeast and ready to be adopted.
