                                                                    Oliver
Oliver is deaf and has some separation anxiety. He does well being alone with another young dog and gets extremely excited when his people get home. 
He is very sweet and very well behaved. He loves to cuddle and lay on the couch with his family. He likes to ride in the car and walks well on his harness. He loves walks, being outdoors and being cuddled. He likes being with his people and sticks close to them. 
Due to his deafness, Oliver startles easily and would do best in a quiet, all adult home with another dog. Oliver is looking for a foster or adopter. He is about a year and a half and weighs about 30 lbs.

He is still nervous outside with all the sights and sounds. He needs a patient adopter who can help him build confidence and  get better at socializing. He's a great snuggler and sleeps in bed with his foster mom. Joey is being fostered in Maine and is available for visits.

                                                                Brenda - Adopted
Brenda is part of a neglect/cruelty case in Greenville, TN.  Thirty animals, including twenty beagles were seized. They were living in deplorable conditions and were surrendered by their owners in an effort to reduce their charges. 
Brenda is about 3 years old and weighs about 38 lbs.  She is outgoing and sweet. She has a deformed front left paw that is possibly due to a birth defect. It doesn't cause any issues for her though. She backed away from the cat she met so would do fine in a home with a dog savvy cat. Brenda will arrive in Massachusetts at the beginning of June.
Below are links to a couple of news stories regarding the case.



                       
                                                      Brieley  - Adoption Pending
 Brieley is part of a neglect/cruelty case in Greenville, TN.  Thirty animals, including twenty beagles were seized. They were living in deplorable conditions and were surrendered by their owners in an effort to reduce their charges. 
Brieley is about 5 years old and weighs about 27 lbs.  She is still a little skittish, but is getting better every day. She is friendly and sweet. She had a patch of thinning hair that is beginning to fill back in. She ignored the cat she met so would do fine in a home with a dog savvy cat. Brieley will arrive in Massachusetts at the beginning of June.


     
                                                                 Dublin 
Dublin is a sweet, loving, three year old, 35 lb beagle. He is extremely friendly and affectionate and enjoys being petted.  He loves giving kisses and will smother you with them! He enjoys being outside. He doesn't dig or try to get out. He is strong and pulls on the leash so needs a harness and some training. He knows how to sit and you can see that he wants to please. 
He is very good in his crate. He ignores the cats in his foster home. Dublin is well mannered when taking a treat and is pretty quiet. However, he has learned to guard things that he 'steals'.  He has no issue with sharing his dog toys or his food. He only guards items that are not his for the taking. What most would consider people things. Dublin has worked with a trainer and we have a system in place to correct this behavior.  We are looking for an adult only home with an experienced dog owner who has the time and patience to work with him. His training needs to be reinforced so that he can be successful. He really wants to be a good boy and consistency will give him the confidence and security he needs to thrive. 



                  
                                                             Bree - Adopted
Bree is part of a neglect/cruelty case in Greenville, TN.  Thirty animals, including twenty beagles were seized. They were living in deplorable conditions and were surrendered by their owners in an effort to reduce their charges. 
Bree is about 3 years old and weighs about 25 lbs.  She is still a little skittish, but is getting better every day. She is outgoing and sweet. At first she paid no attention to the cat she met, but once she noticed her she barked at her quite a bit. She did stop when told to, but would probably do best in a home without a cat. Bree will arrive in Massachusetts at the beginning of June.



                   
                                                                   Buster
Buster is a sweet senior who doesn't hear as well as he used to. He was pulled from a shelter in Virginia where he was found as a stray, but was never claimed. He is very friendly with people and dogs. He loves attention and tends to bulldoze his way through the other dogs to get to his human. Not at all in an aggressive way. He just wants to soak up alll the attention now that he knows how great it is! He's very loving and pretty mellow.  He doesn't have a big prey drive. He came across a ground hog and just sniffed him and walked away. He walks well on a leash. Buster is 9 - 10 years old and Buster will do best in a home that understands the needs of older dogs.  He will arrive in late June.

  Meet Roscoe - a 4-5 year old, 55 pound, Treeing Walking Coonhound mix boy Roscoe loves to run, walk and play with his squeaky toys. But he is also content curling up on the couch and hanging out with his people. He is house and crate trained. He has lived with kids 12+ and does well with them - and we do recommend older kids because of his size. Roscoe seems to like dogs his size - but he doesn't do well with small dogs or small creatures. He knows how to sit and is a trainable boy.

                                                          Gazelle
Gazelle is such a great dog and we are so surprised she hasn't been adopted yet. She is so pretty, affectionate and athletic and loves to run and play. She is approximately 1 or 2 years old, housebroken and has been spayed and updated on her vet care. We believe she is a Coonhound mix. She enjoys being active so an ideal home for her has a big fenced yard where she can run and play fetch and an owner that enjoys a busy dog. She loves to play with other dogs and would love to have a canine companion to run, wrestle and play with. She can't live with cats. She loves toys and happily plays with them for hours. She is a fast learner and loves the fun hobby of nosework, hiking, running around with other pups and even horses! She is very friendly and makes lots of friends when she is out hiking with our volunteers. Contact katebrady123@verizon.net

                                                                Joon   
Benny & Joon were found as strays, believed to be left behind by hunters, we have no idea if they are related or not.  They are both sweet dogs, very friendly, happy and pleasant.  They are ready for adoption either separately or together.  Benny is a little dependent on June and would do best placed with another dog, if not June. Benny walks quite well on a leash and has been enjoying some outings from the shelter with a couple of coonhounds owners and their dog.  He has a nice personality and will be a good companion.  June could be an only dog but would do well placed with another dog too.  She has a strong nose and enjoys her outside time, but is always ready for a nap too.  Both pretty easy-going dogs once away from the high stimulation of the shelter environment.    Benny is about 75 lbs and Joon is about 60 lbs. they are approximately 5 & 6 yrs yrs old.  Available at Warwick Animal Shelter in RI.
