Story
My name is Journey and I am a little Princess in training and was born 9/26/20 and I currently weigh a tiny 8.75 pounds.  I was owned by someone in the military and a kind lady/friend offered to hold me while her owner was deployed.  But at the end of the year of deployment, my mom did not want me back and so my caregiver for the past year and some months total is asking Critter cavalry Rescue to help find me a great home.  She is busy working as a single parent and taking care of her children and two other dogs.  I am a sweet girl with all sorts of nice manners and great sweaters that I plan to bring with me when I adopt a new family.  In these pics you will see me with long fur and currently I have the short haircut for Summer. I am housebroken, a cuddle bug and a pure Shih Tzu that will need trims and grooming every 2-3 months.  I like to always look my BEST!  I can use a crate or not use a crate.   I am a very good girl who gets along with children, other dogs and if you have a cat, I am sure they would be part of my ring of friendships in the animal world.  Hey I am YOUNG…. and if you are pretty young yourself then maybe we could be BFF.   Write to Critter Cavalry Rescue please.   ccrnewengland@gmail.com  I am ready and willing to bring my pretty little self and all my clothes to make my way to you and your nice warm lap.  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.May 27, 2024, 2:27 pm

Story
Cayden’s backstory: Cayden was a stray at an animal control facility, completely covered in dirt and mats with bulging eyes due to untreated glaucoma. When we saw him, we knew we had to pull him to safety after no owners came forward to claim him. His treatment became an emergency, and several rescue transport volunteers made a relay across several states to get him to our emergency veterinarian. He had to have one eye removed because it was beyond repair and was very painful for him. Thankfully, we were able to save his other, though he lost his sight from it. Cayden also had a complete dental, neuter, and is now up-to-date on his essential vaccinations. Breed and Hair Notes: Cayden has hair that grows and not fur. He is a stunning blend of Shih Tzu and perhaps Lhasa Apso. He is agreeable to baths at home and calmly stands in a bathtub for them. He is grateful to be taken care of after years of neglect. You can see how different he looks with long hair and then shaved. We wanted to keep his stunning locks, but they were too matted to his skin. He is now shaved down, but his hair will grow again! PLEASE NOTE: his hair will grow indefinitely, and he will need professional grooming every 4-6 weeks. Only apply if you understand the additional maintenance and cost that these dear hair-not-fur souls need and are willing to commit to life for such care. Get to Know Cayden: Cayden is approximately 5-6 years old and about 18 pounds. He is currently being taught to go potty on pads indoors and to go potty outside on walks by his foster family. Despite Cayden not having his sight, he LOVES his walks. He follows the lead of his person, and he confidently walks and trusts his person’s guidance. Cayden wags his tail a lot and is described as super sweet and lovable by everyone who meets him. Recently, Cayden has learned the joys of sleeping with the pack on the bed for naps and throughout the night. He also enjoys dog beds and is happy on his own at times throughout the day. When he wants to know who is around him and where everyone is, he will call bark, then wait for an answer as if to ask, “Where are you? I want to be with you!” He seldom barks, but he uses his voice strategically to connect with this family. He wants to be part of things, and he will follow with sound and smell to stay connected. He is impressive and amazing. He does not feel sorry for himself, and we should not feel sorry for him either. We can learn a lot from dear Cayden, just by watching his actions and love for life, despite all he’s been through. Cayden loves to be cuddled and fall asleep in his people’s arms. He’s a gentle soul with so much life to live. Ideal Home: Cayden is a pretty laid back guy and takes his lack of sight in stride. At the same time, he needs extra attention due to it. Things must stay in place in the home so he can maneuver safely through it. A quiet and calm home is ideal, not one that has a lot of people coming and going in it. He should also be in a home without young children who do not understand boundaries. Older children who respect boundaries would be loved by Cayden. If you expect to put Cayden in a crate at all during the day or night, please do not apply. Cayden will flourish in a home where he can hang out with his people during the day and sleep with them at night. Cayden can successfully be in a home where he is the only dog, though he lives in a foster home with multiple dogs, and he really enjoys their company. Cayden is a gem, and we are so thrilled to have the opportunity to give him this second chance for a committed and ideal family!

Story
Ernest’s Backstory: Ernest was a stray at animal control. We found him completely covered in mats, dirty, and emaciated. We knew he needed our help as it was clear no one was going to step forward. He was rushed to one of our experienced fosters who became an ICU with one of our partnering veterinarians, helping to keep him stable. He made it through some dark and long days, and we are starting to see brighter days for dear Ernest! Breed and Hair Notes: Ernest has hair that grows and not fur. He is an incredible miniature Shih Tzu blend who weighs about 6 pounds. His grey and black mix of hair is distinguished and endearing. He is agreeable to hair trims and is patient with grooming. PLEASE NOTE: his hair will grow indefinitely, and he will need professional grooming every 4-6 weeks. Only apply if you understand the additional maintenance and cost that these dear hair-not-fur souls need and are willing to commit to life for such care. Get to Know Ernest: Ernest is a gem in the truest sense of the word. His former people never gave him a dental, and they let his teeth rot. We just had an emergency dental for him (he was neutered at the same time) and all of his painful teeth are now removed. He has none remaining, which means he will need high quality soft food only. Never kibble as he cannot chew hard food. Some doctors place him at 10+, though the veterinarian who just did surgery for him says his bloodwork looks like he's only five it's so good! Because we do not know his history, we do not know. What we do know is that has a 4/6 heart murmur and is currently on Lasix and VetMedin. He is in the beginning stages of congestive heart failure. If you are not familiar with the disease, please look it up so you can have a sense of how to best help him. He will be on this medicine for the rest of his life, which is shortened due to this form of heart disease. Think quality time with gem Ernest Edward. Ernest Edward is also mostly blind, but he gets along without any issue, and he does not let this stop him from moving about from dog bed to dog bed! It seems he can see shadows and bright light. He has severe dry eye, and he needs cyclosporine morning and night and Optixcare gel 4 times a day. Ernest Edward is a gentle and loving soul. He is so deserving of an ideal home where he can be doted on for his remaining months, and hopefully years, of his life. He loves hanging out in dog beds with the other gem dogs our sanctuary. He is ready to be loved and to relax! Ideal Home: If you expect to put Ernest in a crate at all during the day or night, please do not apply. Ernest will flourish in a home where he can hang out with his people during the day and sleep near them at night. He is a gem with special needs, and he should not be left at home for long periods of time. People who work from home most of the time or retired people who know how to take care of gems like Ernest is what he needs. Ernest can successfully be in a home where he is the only dog. He currently lives in a foster home with multiple dogs, so he can also be in a home with other gentle animals. He should ideally not be in a home with very young children. Only respectful older children and adults should be in his family. A quiet and low-key household is what Ernest needs. Are you ready to be utterly blown away by the love gem Ernest will give you? If so, we look forward to receiving your adoption application!

Story
Teddy’s Backstory: If the listing is still up, this means his is still available for adoption as we look to find an ideal lifetime home for him. We welcome you to apply! Teddy’s life before being Animal Saint’s care was one of neglect. His elderly person was too ill to take care of him, and it resulted in months of not being groomed and living in a crate. He is ready to live a life of freedom in a home with lots of attention and life outside of a crate! Breed and Hair Notes: Teddy has hair that grows and not fur. He is a stunning Shih Tzu, darling as darling can be. He has incredible hair, now that he’s had time to recuperate. We are letting it grow in all its Shih Tzu glory, and he gets a professional groom every month. PLEASE NOTE: his hair will grow indefinitely, and he will need professional grooming every 4-6 weeks. Only apply if you understand the additional maintenance and cost that these dear hair-not-fur souls need and are willing to commit to life for such care. Get to Know Teddy: Because of his past, Teddy needs an adopter that is willing to give him space and time to get settled into this new life he's been given. He is doing well in his foster home, and he is now seeking attention from them after weeks of rest after his surgeries. Due to the extreme neglect in his past, he had to have an eye removed from untreated dry eye. His sight is minimal out of his other eye, and he navigates well through sound and smell. If Teddy needs to eat or needs something from you, he will let you know with his cute bark. He loves to go outside, and he is beginning to learn how to walk on a leash! Teddy was recently neutered and received a compete dental cleaning and some tooth extractions. He's all up to date on his vaccines. His bloodwork is good. He's ready to go! Ideal Home: Teddy needs an experienced dog parent who has the empathy to understand what trauma he endured in his past. He is so darling and sweet. He so wants to connect with his people. You will just need to give him time in order for this to happen. He is a laidback gent with a gentle soul and a lot of love to give. He currently lives with other dogs and cats and lives peacefully with all of them. He tends to hang out by himself and sometimes with the quieter, older dogs in their home. Because of his gentleness, he would be okay around children who were taught how to respect and touch a dog under supervision. Loving teenagers would be ideal. We look forward to finding this gentleman the ideal family who is deserving of his gentleness. He's ready for his new life! Will it be with you?

Story
Sir Hadley’s Backstory: Sir Hadley was brought into a partnering animal control facility, matted and neglected. His hair was so dirty and matted on his face that he could not see. Animal Saints was asked to help pull him to safety during the overcapacity issues in their facility. It is an honor to help Sir Hadley in his second chance and to find his lifetime family!

Flea and tick treatment: yes Heart worm prevention treatment: yes Vaccines: rabies, distemper, bordetella Dental: yes — cleaning Potty training — working on it and will take direction Hadley has been given a thorough exam with several tests to ensure he is ready to go in this second chance. Personality: Hadley is gentle and sweet. He takes everything in stride and gets along with everyone. He is currently living with several dogs, and he enjoys everyone. Cats, too. PLEASE NOTE: his hair will grow indefinitely, and he will need professional grooming every 4-6 weeks. Only apply if you understand the additional maintenance and cost that these dear hair-not-fur souls need and are willing to commit to life for such care. Ideal Home: Sir Hadley is easygoing, but he is still catching his breath from the neglect he endured before Animal Saints pulled him to safety. He needs a quieter and gentler home. He is smart and inquisitive. He is laidback, but he needs someone wiling to keep his curiosity going with puzzles and training, This will allow him to flourish and give him what he needs. For Sir Hadley’s adoption, we require basic foundational skills in-person training with a certified positive reinforcement trainer in your area. This is to begin right after adoption to set Hadley and his new family up for a successful transition. It is an to excellent way to connect and bond with the new member of your family, and it ensures that Hadley will be given the attention, love, and confidence he needs in his second chance at life. The classes are also SO much fun and are such a positive way to begin this new journey in life with your new Animal Saint. People who work from home or are retired are an ideal match for dear Hadley. He needs a fenced-in yard for good exercise and/or walks on a leash. Gent Sir Hadley is ready to get settled in to his lifetime home. Will it be you? We look forward to finding out!
