Story
This is Ella, she is a 7 year old American bully. She is currently living in Littleton ma. She is very playful and loves a lot of attention. Her behavior with other animals is case by case, she’s been around dogs cats chickens and goats but has been a very good only dog for the past few years. Her vet suspects she has a muscle tear in her right rear that is exasperated by excessive excercise. It doesn’t bother her day to day and she’s not on medication. She needs someone who has the time to give her the love and attention she deserves.

Story
We adopted Wrecker about 6 years ago. During COVID we got sick and he did not get exposure to a lot of people or other animals for a while so he takes a little warming up to with new people or dogs, but he is very friendly once he gets comfortable. He loves our kids and will run around with them outside for as long as he can, as long as its warm outside. He has been in a home with cats. He is anxious and has a lot of fears which come out as barking and growling but he is not agresive, just scared. He does not like loud noises, hates water, and normally does not let us cut his nails. We take him out on pavement often to grind them down and it seems to work for him. He loves to snuggle in bed under some nice warm blankets as he is always cold. He does not like playing with toys, but loves treats. He has been kennel trained but does not like being in the kennel at all, would rather be in one room for a while if he has to be left alone. He is house trained and protective of his home.

Story
Athena is a loving, cuddly special needs pup. She is going to be rehabilitated and taken care of medically prior to adoption (2/13 vet date). She seemingly has a neurological issue and can’t walk and needs to gain muscle mass in her back legs. She is four months old. I found her through a stranger reaching out for help to emergency foster her due to an unsafe situation with a terrible person. We are setting her up with special needs equipment but she needs someone or a family more experienced with special needs and can provide her the appropriate medical care.

Story
Hero definitely has a lot of love to give! He was acquired as a puppy in Lewiston, ME and is now 8 years old. He can be a lovebug of a dog and enjoys cuddles with his people. He is high energy and loves to play fetch or tug. Hero is house-trained and crate-trained. Hero has environmental allergies (currently controlled on Apoquel) and is on a limited-ingredient diet. He also has a lot of anxiety, which makes him not a good fit for being around other dogs and children. We love Hero and want to see him in a good home. We are looking to rehome him because of relocation which will not allow us to bring him along.

Story
Adorable young Neo is super serious in pictures but such a happy boy in person. This 16 month old pup is looking for a home that will appreciate a happy, rompy boy like him. Neo has plenty of energy, and a very good natured personality. Neo may be able live with other gently playful dogs like him, but they would have to meet first. He would do best with older kids, as he is still a young, strong guy who can't wait to learn more from his new home. We are unsure about cats, as Neo did come to the shelter without a background of living with them. Neo has snuggled his way into the hearts of WARL staff, now he is looking for a new start. If you are viewing Neo, and interested in meeting him on a site other than worcesterarl.org, please head to that website and click on his photo to fill out the Dog Adoption Inquiry Form. That would be the first step in meeting this wonderful pup.

Story
Sheldon is an adorable, older pup who would love to go for long walks, hang out and be a new bestie! He loves to meet new people, and is looking for a home who can appreciate a kind, older gentleman with plenty of energy, Sheldon can be friends with polite dogs, but doesn't care for pushy dogs who bark at him. It takes a little time for him to make new dog friends. This lovely boy really can't wait to find a home that will give him the companionship, love and attention he really deserves. If you are would like to meet Sheldon please fill out the Dog Adoption Inquiry that can be found under his photo at our website worcesterarl.org to request a meet with this amazing dog.
