Pancake is a timid beagle from Virginia. He is about 2 years old and weighs 26 lbs. He was found stray and although his owner was found, they didn't want to claim him. He is very sweet and starting to loosen up. He was very scared at the shelter and when he arrived at his foster home, but he has really come out of his shell in the last few weeks. He plays in the house like a puppy, loves to chew toys, and howls when the cat doesn’t want to play with him. He needs some work on manners, but he is learning. When he isn’t playing, he likes to curl up on the couch for naps. He stays in his crate overnight and seems most comfortable with that.
Pancake needs a quiet fenced-in yard with another dog that likes to romp and wrestle. He is still very skiddish outside, and so has struggled with potty training. He needs the security of a fenced in yard to get past his fear of the sights and sounds outdoors. He will be a wonderful family dog given the time and patience to learn to trust.
Pancake is being fostered in western CT and is ready for visits.
Toby is a young Foxhound from Virginia. A super sweet boy who is good with other dogs and loves people. He also loves stuffed toys!! He is a pretty mellow guy until he gets with another dog, then he's in play mode. He can be vocal around other dogs and although he gets along with them, he may do best as an only dog.
Toby is a climber and an escape artist. He cannot be placed in a home with a chain link fence. However, he needs a fenced in yard. Only homes with a sturdy, solid fence at least 6' high will be considered. Toby weighs about 45 lbs. He will be arriving in Massachusetts October 26th.
Rusty is a cute, sweet foxhound mix who arrived in New England a few weeks ago. He's been settling in at his foster home where he is gradually gaining confidence and getting comfortable with life as a pet. He loves the two hound boys there and they play all the time. He now will come to the family members for pets since he sees how much the boys love then. Rusty can be shy around new people so he will have to go to a family that will be patient and kind with him. His potty training is going great and he walks very well on a leash. He does like his crate with a little enticement and is quiet in there. He would do best with a family that has a dog as he seems to love playing with and learning from other dogs. Loud noises don't seem to bother him, but he might do best with older kids or no children in the house. He listen well and is learning "leave it". He still has that puppy instinct to chew on things but when redirected with a chew toy does very well. There is no toy or food aggression and he loves to run away with the toy and put it in his toy stash.
Over all Rusty is such a sweet cute little boy.
Belle is a sweet, fun-loving, active, Redtick Coonhound. She is about 2 years old, weighs 45lbs, is house broken, friendly to other dogs, and loves to play all day long. Belle would do best in a home with another dog, no cats, and no small children. She does have some separation anxiety and boundary anxiety but is attentive and training to trust that her human will return. She is not completely crate trained, but is getting better with it. Her perfect situation is someone with Coonhound experience that is home all day long and can give her the attention and continued training she needs. Having another dog to follow the example of will make Belle's transition much smoother. She is smart, loving and very cuddly. Belle listens very well to commands she knows and is going to do best with continued training and activity. She is good on walks with a harness and could be a great running partner. Belle's favorite thing to do is run around the back yard with her favorite toy in her mouth for a while, then sit by your side at night while you watch TV. This adorable little girl is being fostered in NH and will be available for visits soon.
Sarah is a sweet beagle from Virginia. She is friendly and loves people; a real social butterfly! Sarah really just wants to hang out with her people and take a few naps during the day; preferably on her owner's lap as she is a champion snuggler!
Sarah is looking for a quiet, all adult home where she can be a companion and the only pet. She doesn't like dogs or cats in her personal space. She is not barky, but a bit vocal and grumbly when she sees wildlife out the window. Sarah is working hard to get comfortable walking on a leash and doing her business outside and is pee pad trained when in the house. Sarah has most likely had a rough life. She is showing her age and missing some teeth. She's estimated to be about 8 -10 years old and weighs about 30 lbs. Sarah is being fostered in the Boston area.
Penny is a 3 yr old redbone coonhound, weighing about 55 lbs. She has a very sweet personality, likes to meet new people and is good with other dogs. Penny's houndy behaviors are evident when she's outside as she puts her nose to the ground and starts tracking and will let out an occasional howl. She's been fine with the cats at her foster home, but does have some prey drive and might chase cats that run outside. Penny seems housebroken and should be ok with kids. Originally from Alabama and arriving in Massachusetts in September.
