Story
This gorgeous girl is so lucky to be alive! We were driving down a busy four lane highway when we spotted her run across the highway barely missing getting run down by a large box truck. She ran into the parking lot of a Dollar General so we immediately pulled into the parking lot and luckily she ran up to our van and jumped right in! We tried and tried to find her owner but to no avail. It's hard to see in the pics but she has one blue eye and one golden eye. We suspect she had a little Husky in her but we did a DNA anyway, lots and lots of breeds in her DNA, including 5% Chihuahua! She's a super mutt! Clarice is spayed, fully vaccinated, crate trained and microchipped. She is available for immediate transport PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE LOCATED IN TENNESSEE AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MEET OUR PETS PRIOR TO ADOPTION! ADOPTION FEE $500

Meet Penny!Penny is a 1.5 year old cute little brindle pittie. She's very sweet and silly. She did not enjoy living with other dogs, so she must be your one and only dog. No cats for Penny, but older kids are ok! She loves toys and going on shorter walks, and she enjoys going on car rides. She is looking forward to meeting her new best friend or family!

Story
Clementine here, I am a 4 month old puppy from Georgia. I'm a happy girl who just wants all the attention! I really enjoy running around the yard and playing with my toys. Being only 4 months old I am still learning some of my puppy manners but I am ready and willing to learn any and all tricks. I like to keep busy so doing some fun puzzle toys and going on walks to get all my sniffs in are a must for me! I've been working on learning how to sit before I eat and starting to learn paw as well. If you think I sound like a good match for your family, apply online for me today!

Story
Meet young puppy Bocce. This is a happy go lucky guy with a lot of energy.He loves to entertain himself with toys and is really good walking on aleash. Oh, dont let that adorable face fool you. This puppy will requirea bit more training with polite greetings and to use that puppy mouthappropriately. Luckily, Bocce loves his snacks and will train for cookies.This good boy is looking to join a low traffic home with older kids only tohelp him become his best self. The best situation would be if he could livewith an older, patient dog that will teach him the ropes. Here at theshelter, he has enjoyed play dates with other dogs. We have no history ofwhat Bocce thinks of cats, so a dog-savvy cat would be a possibility.Does Bocce sound like the pup for you? If so, please head to the MethuenMSPCA location Tuesday-Sunday between the hours of 12PM-3PM!

Story
Kevin is a friendly pittie built kind of like your grandmothers coffeetable. He is big, low to the ground and really heavy. Kidding aside,Kevin is a sweet, friendly guy who would make a great walking buddy. Hedalso make a great lounging on the couch buddy. This good boy loves toysand can entertain himself. If he can have toys outside, then he is livinghis best life. He is house trained and will let you know when he needs togo out. While he is doing well with his loose leash walking skills, thereare times he can be very strong and pully. He is hoping for an adopterthat will continue with his training. Sometimes Kevin is uncomfortablewith close handling. His family just needs to watch his body language andit is pretty obvious when he wants to be pet and when he needs a break.Kevin has the potential to live with another dog with a plan in place to feed him and his buddy separately during meal time. Kevin politely declines living with cats or kids. Do you wantto meet Kevin? Visit him at the MSPCA in Methuen Tuesday-Sunday12PM-4:30PM.
