Story
Frankie is a sweetheart that loves everyone he meets. He has been through a lot the past few weeks. He was abandoned by has former family, who lived down the street from us, when they moved away suddenly. He stayed by their house for days waiting for them to come home before we realized he was abandoned and brought him to our home to care for him. Unfortunately one of our large dogs is aggressive towards Frankie and so he will still need to find a safe forever home with a different family. He is a ray of sunshine! He loves his walks, treats and dog friends and just wants to be part of the fun. He is a bundle of energy and doesn’t always realize how big he is though, so Frankie would do best in a home with a family that can continue to work with him to learn to channel his energy in fun and safe ways. If you can find a place in your home and heart for this sweet boy then you will have a loyal and loving companion for life!

Oreo loves to play and be silly, but is also a champion when it comes to training. Hes still an adolescent pup who has a lot to learn about the world, and he can sometimes find the sights and sounds of the big city to be pretty overwhelming. Because hes such a food enthusiast, Oreo is looking for adopters who can help him lose some weight so he can look and feel his best going forward. Oreo could live with another well-matched dog friend, potentially cats, and older children who can help participate in his training.

This cutie can be a nervous in new situations and meeting new people, so she is looking for a family who can help her settle in at her own pace. Once she gets comfortable Piggy loves to climb in your lap and get bum scritches. In her previous home she was very bouncy and playful, but would also use her voice to get attention. Piggy has lived with another dog, but she can be a bit awkward when making new friends so a slow introduction will be important.If you think this dog could be a good match for your home and would like to learn more, stop by our Boston Adoption Center.

***** My adoption fee will be waived April 16 - 21!!! To learn more, visithttp://www.mspca.org/feewaivedMeet Champion! This Champion may not have a Super Bowl ring, but his foster home did lovingly referred to him as the `dumb football player type`. With the squishiest blockhead in the biz and three legs (don`t worry, it doesn`t slow him down!), this hunk is sure to turn heads everywhere he goes. Like many dogs, Champion has been stressed in the shelter and will need some well-earned R&R time before going on any big adventures. He may be able to live with other dogs (who are ok with a football player!). In his foster home, he was described as a little too much for cats. Is he the Champion of your heart? Come to our Boston location to find out today!If you think this dog could be a good match for your home and would like to learn more, stop by our Boston Adoption Center.

Story
MY ADOPTION FEE WILL BE WAIVED APRIL 16 to 21!!!To learn more, visit:http://www.mspca.org/feewaived Nyla1 Year 3 MonthsSpayed FemalePitbull Nyla is a sweet and squishy lady looking for a new home of her own. She has been through a lot of transitions in a short period of time and is looking for a family that can help a sensitive lady adjust at her own pace. Nyla is a hefty gal who still has puppy energy when she gets excited. She loves to play and run around, but will make her own fun if she is not given things to keep her busy. Nyla has been able to meet dogs, but other dogs are not always a fan of her. She might be able to live with dog savvy cats who can handle it if she tries to play. Once Nyla has time to settle in and decompress from the stress of shelter life we think she will be a wonderful companion for long walks and couch snuggles!
