Story
Kane is a 7 year old pitbull bulldog mix he is a very sweet boy but sadly suffers from seizures. He has some permanent damage to his eye sight and at night has accidents because he still has small seizures while he sleeps. Unfortunately because of his eye sight he scares very easily and is uneasy on his feet. He will need a quiet patient home with no small children. I wish we didn't have to rehome him but w several small kids 1 being autistic the noises and quick movements scare him and he gets very defensive growling and barring his teeth because he can't see them. Our home is no longer what is best for him and we want him to have a happy quiet life

Story
Nova is approximately 8 months old and about 50 pounds. I adopted her from a puppy rescue in NY where she was transported to from the south at 4 months old. I do not have much history other than coming from the south, but in the time I’ve known her she is a sweet girl-loves to give kisses on your face, loves being around people, loves a good adventure and then sleeping under the blankets with you at night. Unfortunately, I have several cats in the home whom she chases constantly causing a lot of stress in the household. She is a very social dog, she LOVES other dogs—I have spoken with a trainer and she would really benefit from a household with a household with another dog. She engages in some boredom behaviors like destructive chewing and pacing, likely due to boredom. I just cannot provide her with the lifestyle she needs. She requires a home with: •An experienced adopter willing to train •fenced in yard •dog companion •no cats/small animals in the home

Story
Hey hey hey hey! My name is Lucky, and I think that I'm just the luckiest guy in the world because you're here to visit me! I love people and doing any and all things active. I would make a wonderful hiking, running, or parachuting buddy. Ok, maybe not parachuting, but I am definitely an adventure seeker who just wants to be with you as much as I can! I love nothing more than playing tug with rope toys. I think of it as super fun and a way that my people can get their upper body/core workouts for the day in. I'm just trying to be helpful! I also like to play with other dogs, but I can be a bit "much" for some, so I'll need someone who can keep up with me. I am working on my house training, but it's really hard here in the shelter. I need a patient owner who is willing to work with me on training, since I'm smart and love to learn! I would be a great candidate for obedience classes to build on what I already know. I lived in my previous home with a younger child and was friendly, but had to be crated a lot since my owner had to work a lot and I was so exuberant with the little one that I'd knock them over frequently. Kennel staff think it best that I go home with kids 5 and older so I wouldn't be so likely to hurt them without meaning to!Weight: 54If you think that I could be a good fit for you and your family, please call the kennel staff at (413) 447-7878 ext.126 or swing by the shelter to speak with kennel staff and meet me!

Story
Hi there, my name is Sophie! I am a wonderfully sweet lady who was brought to the shelter when my owner no longer had housing and the ability to care for me. I love to meet people and consider strangers to be friends that I just haven't met yet! If we really get along, sometimes I'll even treat you to a serenade in the language of my people. Because of my vocal prowess, I will require a house setting, so as not to disturb any neighbors through shared walls. I like to spend time outdoors and cavort around in the pen with staff, but am also quite content to hang out inside and snuggle with my people. I could potentially live with a goofy large male dog but am very picky about the dogs I like. I do have a prey drive and cannot live with cats or small dogs. I am house trained and keep my kennel nice and clean, which staff have told me is "good girl behavior" in addition to my never ending sweetness!If you think I could be the perfect new family member for you, please call the kennel staff at (413) 447-7878 ext.126 to learn more about me and how to meet me and hopefully take me home!

Story
Hallå! I'm Freya and true to my name, I am an absolute goddess of love! Socializing with people and going outside for walks and romps in the pen are just some of my favorite activities. I can be a bit wary of men at first, but I warm up quickly, and have no issues with new women at all. I was brought to the Berkshire Humane Society when my previous housemate (another unspayed adult female) and I would get into scuffles, usually resulting in minor injuries for me, and our owner could not manage to keep us separate anymore. Since coming to the shelter, I have made many human friends, but need a home without any other female dogs. I also cannot live with cats as I do have a bit of a prey drive. I settle nicely in my kennel with an occupier, but can be a tad vocal when I can see my people from my kennel, but cannot get to them. What can I say, I just want to be with my human friends as much as possible! If you thinkI could be a good fit for your family, please call the kennel staff at (413) 447-7878 ext.126 to learn more about me and how to meet me!

Story
Good day, my name is Beethoven and similar to my namesake, I am quite the musical guy! I loooove to sing and can be a little loud in my vocal expressions, so a house setting would be best for my new home. That said, I sing mostly because I want to be with my people and don't really like being left behind. I'm not at all destructive, fully housetrained and eventually settle down and take a nap, especially if I have a stuffed Kong or other sort of occupier to take my mind off that I'd much rather be out having adventures with my humans. I love to go out on walks, cavort around in the pen and would make a wonderful hiking buddy! I have a very high prey drive when anything moves fast. Because of this I would do best in a home with no other animals. I'm a solid guy, both physically and emotionally, and could use to stand to lose a few pounds to take some pressure off of my joints. I've lived with kids before and could potentially live with kids 10+ again. Could I be the perfect new furry family member for your life?Please contact kennel staff at (413) 447-7878 ext.126 to learn more about me and how to take me home!Weight: 88lbs.

After being here for just over a month YELENA has done amazing, she has gained weight and looks great, her personality is all playfulness and love, she loves toys, loves to chase balls, loves to throw her toys up in the air whilst playing is so affectionate, loving and gentle.   She deserves an extra special family who can give her the life she deserves and help her forget the abuse, neglect and starvation she has suffered.

Interested families are required to complete our application process and once approved schedule an appointment to come to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend.

Zym is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, monthly preventatives, heartworm and tick disease tested negative and is microchipped with 24PetWatch.

Since Zym has been here (just over a month at the time of this update) he has done amazing, he has gained weight (too much and is now on a diet lol). He and Smellerbee are pretty bonded and snuggle up together in a big puppy pile, so we would love to adopt them together but will adopt individually if a family only wants one. He is playful, affectionate, goofy, happy, full of love, kisses and cuddles. From what he must have endured to now it is a complete change, he is so much fun.

Sasha-******TLC Club Member*******10 year old pitbull terrier, not good with cats, no kids, potty trained. Sasha is an active Pitty girl who was adopted out and returned due to a change in circumstances. Sasha has moderate to high energy but also will be happy snuggling on the couch for some of the day. Sasha would do best in a home with pitbull experience And in a home with no kids as she can get over excited by too much stimulation. Sasha can live with other dogs though we recommend dogs who are calmer and will tolerate her poor play manners well and who will not overstimulate her. Sasha gets spring allergies that cause her to have red eyes and itchy skin. This has been treated by providing her with Allergy pills when the allergies come on and are resolved when the seasons change. Sasha would do well in a home with no cats and in a home with someone who has experience setting boundaries and limitations. And a home with a fenced yard is a must.Please note we do not have a central kennel facility, all of our pets are located in foster homes.
