Story
Zues is a handsome boy that unbelievably his first owners did not want anymore.  We guess the novelty of his puppy days were over and he was now needing some daily attention and time and they were not interested anymore.  This is a boy that is going to need some patience as he settles in and learns that food will be there for him every day.  He is a little protective and overly interested in feeding time right now.  The chains do that to dogs.  We suggest no young children but any over 12 years is fine.  he wants to take food from the young ones sometimes. He loves to talk to the people at the vet’s front desk and he greets everyone in the waiting room while trying to see the vet.  He is just 2 years old and weighs 52 pounds.  He is neutered and healthy and handsome as can be.  It is best if his new home does not have very young children. We think he is a Golden Retriever mix and he has all the personality traits of one.  He is housebroken, learning a crate and he is not destructive or a heavy chewer.  He loves other dogs and he rides so nicely in the car, like he’s done it all the time.  Don’t think too long on inquiring about Zeus because he will be GONE.  Please email us at ccrnewengland@gmail.com if you would like an application sent to you.  He is in Nashville, TN but we transport northward also.    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.February 25, 2024, 10:00 pm

Story
Bugsy is a handsome Golden Retriever and Poodle that has the softest fur and the most important part is that he has the softest and sweetest personality.   This 5 month old Golden Doodle is 39 pounds and just the most loving and easy boy you will ever meet.   You know all the rumors on how crazy the Doodles are?  Not Bugsy.   Critter Cavalry Rescue actually bought this boy from a backyard breeder who had the dirtiest place ever.  We did a “mercy purchase” to get he and his brother out of the most horrible conditions.  To our amazement these two boys were just CHILLED and happy and loving and easy.  We could not believe there was no emotional damage.  This boy is so much fun and so very handsome since we groomed him.   He is neutered and all vaccines given and microchipped with a full vet exam done.  This boy will be a 65 pound pup that a family will treasure and cherish for a very long time.  If you are interested in one of the Best Golden Doodles on the planet, please email us at ccrnewengland@gmail.com and we will be very careful to review for a fenced yard, someone home quite a bit, maybe even older children for him to play with.  A dog playmate that is a good adult mentor would be exceptional as well but not necessary!   We have a Golden Doodle gold mine to offer with Bugsy.  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.February 25, 2024, 10:00 pm

Story
Name: Clyde Sex: Male Estimated Age: About 1 year old (as of 2/1) Best Guess for Breed: Great Pyrenees Mix Weight: About 60 lbs Good With: Dogs and people (including kids!). We haven’t seen Clyde interact yet with cats, but happy to test him out. Story: Clyde was rescued locally in Maryland. Clyde is a super sweetie that loves all people and gets along great with other dogs and puppies. His foster says he listens well, understands basic commands, walks well on the leash and is great with their daughter. He knows just how to get comfortable up on the couch with his humans, and will love to join you on walks and trots around the neighborhood. Clyde is just looking for someone to be his new best furend and we know that he will repay them with endless amounts of love and tail wags. As a puppy, Clyde will need an adopter who is committed to setting him up for success by enrolling in obedience training and exercising him both mentally and physically. He will also need love, patience, and socialization in order to thrive! CLYDE’S PERFECT MATCH: PERFECT FAMILY: Clyde is a friendly, playful, smart, obedient, and lovable puppy. He is house broken and well behaved. He is very trainable. He gets along with people of all ages and other dogs. He is perfect for a family or an energetic individual/couple that will take him in as their own and will play with him and help him get exercise.  PERFECT HOME: A fenced in yard would be preferential, however, as long as he gets plenty of walks and is able to visit his friends at a dog park. He is mild-mannered and laid back for a puppy, but will get excited seeing another dog. He also loves to play fetch. BEHAVIOR IN HOME: Clyde is potty trained and will let you know when he needs to go. He loves his chew toys. In the home and yard he stays close to his people and often likes to snuggle with people or other dogs. He has not been observed with cats.  CRATE: He sleeps in his kennel at night and goes in with little prodding. He is not happy initially when you leave for the day but settles in within a few minutes and is well rested when you return home. FUN FACT:  He loves ice cubes and runs to the ice maker every time it is in use. If you think that Clyde might be your perfect match, apply today!       February 25, 2024, 5:37 pm

Story
Meet Annabelle (fka Popcorn)! Annabelle is a cuddler extraordinaire! She's very soft and she loves attention... can you tell by that face?! She is very quiet: no whining or barking. Annabelle is housetrained and only chews on her toys. She is a young girl with lots of energy, so she'll need a yard or at least 2 long walks a day. Foster mom takes her on a 2 mile walk before work and Annabelle is good after that. She gets along with her 4-legged foster brother, but not a toy sharer, at this point. She does need a little work with resource guarding (food and toys) and learning how to be a good leash walker. Annabelle is just about perfect and with a little love and patience, she'll be there in no time! The adoption fee for this dog is $350 which includes routine vetting and spay/neuter. Petconnect Rescue cannot guarantee the exact breed of any animal in our care. The breed listed is based on any background we may have been provided, and the general appearance of the animal at the time they enter our system.
