Story
MEET LILO! Want a lifetime of walkies? So does Lilo! He is always up for a long stroll around the block with his favorite people! It can take a little while to become one of Lilo`s best buds, he can be very fearful when meeting strangers and is a little selective about who he hangs out with. Fortunately, once he warms up, he`s all yours! Lilo likes taking his walks in any environment but somewhere with lower traffic would be best. He`d also prefer a completely child free home with not as many visitors as his new family will have to make sure to give him a slow introduction anytime he meets new people. This boy is truly lovely and if you think your home is right for him, feel free to inquire about him at our Boston location.** PLEASE NOTE - Lilo requires multiple meets before going hom. Lilo is currently up to date on all vaccinations, has been neutered, microchipped, and seen by our vet team.For more information on Lilo or any other animal currently residing at the Animal Rescue League of Boston, please call us at 617-426-9170. We welcome adopters from NH, RI, CT, and NY. However, we will be unable to facilitate same day adoptions due to state regulated paperwork requirements.

Story
Romeo and Juliet were both street dogs, traveling everywhere together, looking for food and love. They were finally picked up by animal control in Georgia where they remained on a stray hold until they could be released. Animal control soon realized that Juliet was pregnant by Romeo so they called us to see if we could get them out of there before she gave birth. We had them immediately transported here to Tennessee and two weeks later she gave birth to 7 puppies. Sadly one was stillborn but the remaining 6 are all healthy happy babies who have all been adopted. Now it's Juliet's turn. She is crate trained, fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed and heart worm negative. Juliet is very high energy but extremely lovable. She is excellent with my 3 year old granddaughter and as you can see in the photo, fine with cats. Wouldn't you love to give her a loving and forever home! PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE LOCATED IN TENNESSEE AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MEET OUR PETS PRIOR TO ADOPTION ADOPTION FEE $700

Meet Coco! Coco is a sweet old man and he is looking fabulous with his new haircut! He came in severely matted and with several teeth that needed to be removed but now he's looking and feeling a while lot better. He does well with other dogs but his favorite four-legged friends are cats. Coco loves to run and go for walks, he's got some pep in his step despite his age. But while Coco has still got the spunk of a younger dog he doesn't have the best eyes or ears anymore and has difficulty with stairs. He is a healthy eater and loves boiled carrots for treats. **Coco is currently in a foster home, if you would like to meet him, please complete an adopter's profile at parl.org and email cshamgochian@parl.org**
