Story
Popeye here! I am a fun 4 year old guy looking for my forever family! I am super goofy and will do anything for treats and bum scratches. I am crate trained, food motivated, and super smart! I would love someone who will continue teaching me to be the very best boy as I love to learn! I tend to get over aroused when I see dogs and am working on being calmer everyday! I actually really like other dogs and enjoy playing with my pittie foster sister! I absolutely love my toys - especially ones that hide treats in them - and I love, love, love my snuffle mat, stuffed kongs and peanut butter bones too. I cant wait to meet my forever family! Get in touch with the humans and we will meet soon I hope! I love meeting new people!

Story
Koko was one of my pups who I thought found a forever home. He family decided they didn't want her anymore and were going to put her down. I said no way I will take her. I have her mom and brother who I thought would be a good fit for each other. Unfortunately koko and her mom don't see eye to eye and have arguments. I have a 20 month old baby and things are getting pretty tough to take care of 3 dogs and a baby especially when koko and her mom don't get along. Koko is a wonderful, well behaved dog. She loves to cuddle and hang out on the couch. She's great on the leash. Great jogging partner stays beside you at all times. Listens very well. Loves treats and toys. She gets along great with people, kids, cats and male dogs. But will be better off if she's the only dog. She is loyal and a loving companion who just needs a chance to show it. Her birthday is 4/21/19. Needs an experienced owner who knows how to handle a reactive dog not aggressive but reactive.

Story
MEET AKIRO! - I am in a foster home, please call the shelter to meet with me!*My adoption fee is waived*What does the name AKIRO mean you ask? The name Akiro is a Japanese boy`s name that means `bright boy`. Well - if you are looking for just that in a canine companion then Akiro is destined to be your bright boy! He has been in our shelter for way too long - going on 5 months and he continues to somehow be overlooked and we cannot figure out why. Akiro is - low-maintence- potty trained - happy being with people or being left to his own devices - loves to play - he can be found with one or more tennis balls in his mouth enjoying the fresh air outside, or cuddled up on the couch,- he`s fairly ordinary looking but when you see those hearts popping out of his eyes when he looks at you - you too will fall in love with him!Akiro is currently up to date on all vaccinations, has been neutered, microchipped, and seen by our vet team.For more information on Akiro or any other animal currently residing at the Animal Rescue League of Boston, please call us at 617-426-9170. We welcome adopters from NH, RI, CT, and NY. However, we will be unable to facilitate same day adoptions due to state regulated paperwork requirements.

Story
Otto was born on August 19th, 2020! He’s a high-energy boy, but that also comes with high anxiety. He gets stressed out easily and could use a home where he is the only pet and with older children (age ten and up). He also needs a place to run, so a fenced-in yard would be perfect for him to run and play with some tennis balls. It is with heavy hearts that we have to find a new home for our boy. We don't have the space for him to run and be as happy as he truly needs. We want him to be happy in his new home. Otto truly is a sweetheart, and we want to make sure he’s going to the best home possible.
