                Rosie                     ADOPTIONS PENDING     !              Daisy
 Rosey and Daisy are two little female beagles from North Carolina.  We are placing them separately, although they would enjoy homes with other dogs.  Rosey is standing in the rear; Daisy is sitting.  Rosey is 1.5 - 2 yrs old and 16 lbs; She is good with other dogs and cats, very sweet, quiet and friendly.  Daisy is 1.5 - 2 yrs old and 20 lbs; good with other dogs, a little more outgoing.   Both are owner surrenders frm someone who had too many dogs. Arriving at the end of July.

Toby is a cute little beagle mix, about 2 years old and 25 lbs. Toby is a sweet little guy, gaining confidence, but still a little wary in new situations.  He's loving and happy with those he knows.  He would benefit from a home with a happy, confident canine companion and a family that is home often.  Toby does well walking on a leash, especially if out with another dog.  He's working on his crate-training. He plays well with most dogs; he does best with slow introductions and mellow confident dogs.  Toby has a scar on his back, possibly from a burn or injury.    He's going to be a nice pet and deserves some TLC. Toby has arrived and is ready for visits, fostering north of Boston.

Kipper is a local owner surrender.  He needs a new home where he'll have a canine companion, some good exercise and attention from his family.  Kipper loves to ride in the car; he walks well on a leash, and he did well with the 7 yr old and the cat at his previous home.  Kipper is housebroken, he tolerates a crate but is a little anxious when left alone.  Living with another dog will help this situation.  Kipper is an escape artist and needs to be supervised in a fenced area.  Kipper weighs about 45 lbs ( could take some weight off). and is 6 yrs old.  He is in foster care in Maine.

Willow is an owner surrender from Virginia.  She's a Beagle mix, about 5 yrs old and weighing about 25 lbs.  Willlow misses the comfots of her home and is not very happy in her boarding kennel situation !   She loves people and craves attention, her owners had her from a puppy so she doesn't know anything different.   Willow is great on a leash, and is very friendly and affectionate  She gets along with most other dogs and has lived with a cat, although she may bark at cats if she sees them outside.  Willow was the most 'alpha' of the three dogs that she lived with, and the arrival of a baby in the home upset the balance of things for her.  She would do well as an only dog, or with a submissive canine companion.  Willow is ready for transport and will arrive in late August.

Chazzy is an 7-8 year old beagle boy.   Chaz would do best with a male owner.  He is definitely a "Man's dog".  In his foster home he seems to be drawn to his foster dad.  Chazz wants nothing more then to have a little daily exercise and a dog bed to nap on.
Chazzy loves to play ball and can be comical at times too. Chazz can be a little "quirky" as when he has had enough of something he will let you know he is ready for his own space.
Chaz is house trained, crate trained, walks well on a leash.  He does good with cats.  Chaz would need the company of another mellow female or male dog in his home.  We would recommend a beagle savvy home without any young children.  Chazzy is in Maine and ready for visits.


Tammy is a little hound mix from Virginia.  She's well-mannered and friendly.  Tammy is 1 - 2 yrs old and weighs about 30 lbs.  Coming to Massachusetts in late August. More photos coming.

When they heard she had been rescued they sent this message through our local rescue contacts in Virginia:
' This sweet girl hung around my house in Hurt for a while. I fed her and gave her water every day. She is absolutely the sweetest dog you will ever meet. I called her Squeaker since she made a quiet squeaking sound when she was happy to see me and my two sons. She was VERY good with small children while she visited with us. I sure hope she finds a loving home soon! She'll make a great companion for someone'

 I'm Clyde -  a blue tick boy!  I love to play and tussle with my furmates in my foster home.. I'm 95% house trained and fully crate trained.. I love to sleep in bed with my humans, I snore.. sorry.  I would love a home with a playmate.. I'm an attention hound... and get a bit anxious if noone is around to play.  I am learning to sit.. and down... not real good with stay yet. I have a short attention span.  I get along with all my fur siblings big and small... plus that big bird who thinks he is a dog too.   I do bark.. I am a hound.. and at only 2 everything is new to me now that I have a place to hang out.  I'm neutered, up to date on shots, and microchipped. I would love a house where there is someone to play with an someone to pay attention to me.  I'm about 45 or so pounds.. mom says I need a few groceries and we are working on that... I was found with my pal Bonnie... I would love to be adopted with her.. but if there are suitable playmates I think I would be good with that.. ok and someone to rub my tummy and ears too all the time....



Karma is a very sweet, but timid redtick girl who was found wandering emaciated in the parking lot of a rural Virginia animal shelter one Monday morning.  She needs a loving, patient owner - someone who understands that all rescue dogs are not perfect, and who wants to help a special dog in need.   Karma has been in foster care for a few months, has gained weight and is gaining confidence. She's affectionate with those she trusts and knows and she'll come and curl up with her foster Mom on the sofa.  Karma is not comfortable around strangers - she's not aggressive at all - she'll just retreat to her 'safe' area. Some obedience work to help her gain confidence, and another dog to show her the way would also be helpful.
 Karma is about 3 yrs old and weighs about 40 lbs.   Karma has an old injury or congenital defect with her right front 'wrist' area.  She gets around fine and puts weight on it.  Karma is in Massachusetts and is available for visits.

 Georgia is a pretty redtick girl from Tennessee.  She's friendly and good with other dogs.  Georgia is bout 3 years old and weighs 50 lbs.  She'll be arriving in August.

                                       Sherriff   -    Adoption Pending !
 Sherriff is happy, friendly treeing walker coonhound from Virginia.  He's quiet and well-mannered and would make a good family dog.  He can be sweet and goofy and sometimes sounds like he's trying to talk - with all of his funny vocalizations.  Sherriff walks well on a leash; he's not a big barker; he likes to be with his people and would do well with the company of another dog when left alone.  Nothing not to like about this boy - all around great hound dog !   Sherriff is about 7 yrs old and weighs about 60 lbs.  Sherriff has arrived and is ready for visits.                     





                                                             Laverne  -  Adopted !

                                                                  Shirley  -   Adopted  !
Laverne and Shirley are a beautiful pair of redticks from South Carolina.  They are currently boarding at a doggie daycare in Massachusetts - a foster or adoptive home is urgently needed.  These girls are a bonded pair - they are good with other dogs but have been through a long rescue journey and enjoy hanging out with each other.  They are engaging with people that they know - and readily warm up to new people in a day or so.  Both are gentle, sweet souls, not high maintenance.  In their case - two is easier than one - they will have a companion to pay and rest with and will make an easy transition to their new home. C'mon - you know you'll want a second one sooner or later - take the plunge and start off with these two!
