DOG'S NAME:  Big Boy

SEX: Male

AGE: 3-4

RESCUE:  Safe Harbor Animal Rescue

BREED:  Golden Mix

COLOR: Golden

WEIGHT: 40 lbs.

KIDS:  Over 12 only

DOGS: Selective

CATS: Yes

 

HOW I CAME TO THE SHELTER:  Big Boy was let out of a car, abandoned at a busy traffic intersection. Locating him and ensuring his safety was a 6 week endeavor, involving 1000's of flyers, mailers, yard signs, and many kind people canvassing forests, shopping centers, and neighborhoods night and day. He was often rejected when he came to doors and fences, asking for help. As time went on, Big Boy became frightened and went into "flight mode" making picking him up more difficult. He was caught when he ran into a fenced in yard through an open gate. The moment Big Boy had a leash around him he was all kisses and love. He has re-adjusted VERY well to living in a home again. He is perfectly housebroken and has beautiful manners.

 

THINGS I LIKE AND DISLIKE:  Big Boy LOVES leash walks and to hang out with human friends. He prefers a quiet home environment with consistency. Big Boy is affectionate, sensitive, and incredibly sweet. Big Boy likes to run free in the neighborhood as he used to do with his previous home, however that should absolutely not be allowed and precautions on "door darting" should be made. Also, he does not like reactive or aggressive dogs pestering him on walks. UPS and other types of delivery people/vans are a cause for suspicion for him.

 

UPDATE ON Big Boy:  Big Boy has also gone back to Georgia with his rescue and is currently working with a trainer on being more comfortable and not darting out doors.  Big Boy is still very much available for adoption and can come back up if interested.  This would be a firm commitment though as currently there is no foster available in CT for Big Boy.

DOG'S NAME:  Harlow

SEX: Female       

AGE: 1

RESCUE:  Halfway Home Rescue Inc.

BREED:  Akita

COLOR: Tan/black

WEIGHT: 70 lbs.

KIDS:  No

DOGS: No    

CATS: No

 

HOW I CAME TO THE SHELTER:  Harlow came to our shelter from a really bad situation. She had spent her life on the end of a chain surrounded by dogs used for fighting- likely being assaulted on a regular basis.

 

THINGS I LIKE AND DISLIKE:  Harlow was only 6 months old when rescued and had never felt the touch of a kind human. With help from some very dedicated volunteers and a team of dedicated trainers, Harlow is making incredible progress. She is incredibly smart and a very quick learner. Because of her abusive past, Harlow needs an adult home (with Akita or like breed experience) that will be sure she gets plenty of positive reinforcement, professional training, and exercise. Harlow must be the only pet in her home as her tough beginning has caused her to be too reactive to share a home with other pets. Harlow's new home MUST be willing to continue her professional training.

 

HEALTH: Harlow is spayed; vaccinated for rabies, distemper, and bordetella; and microchipped with a lifetime registration. She tested negative for heart worm and is current on flea/tick and heart worm prevention.  

 

Harlow is in CT and available for adoption.  To apply for HARLOW please CLICK HERE

DOG'S NAME:  Scooter

SEX: Male

AGE: 4

RESCUE:  Halfway Home Rescue Inc.

BREED:  Herding Dog Mix

COLOR: Black/white

WEIGHT: 55 lbs.

KIDS:  No

DOGS: Not at this time    

CATS: No

 

HOW I CAME TO THE SHELTER: Scooter came to our shelter by way of our friends at Peach County Animal Rescue in Georgia. Before that, Scooter was picked up by animal control in a rough area of Macon, Georgia where children were screaming and throwing rocks at him.

 

THINGS I LIKE AND DISLIKE: Scooter is incredibly smart. He is a quick learner and is very loyal to those he trusts. Because of his abusive past, Scooter needs an adult home that will be sure he gets plenty of positive reinforcement, training, and exercise. Scooter would be a fantastic running and/or hiking partner. He plays well with other dogs at our shelter and could learn a lot from a well balanced canine companion. Scooter has had professional training and is doing beautifully. He is still attending classes and has really blossomed into a fabulous dog- for the right home that will continue training and working him. Scooter LOVES having a job!

HEALTH: Scooter is neutered; vaccinated for rabies, distemper, and bordetella; and microchipped with a lifetime registration. He tested negative for heart worm and tick borne diseases and is current on flea/tick and heart worm prevention.

DOG'S NAME:  Stevie "Evie"

SEX: Female

AGE: 3

RESCUE:  CT Animal House

BREED:  Bulldog/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix

COLOR: White/brown

WEIGHT: 30 lbs.

KIDS:  No

DOGS: No

CATS: Yes

 

HOW I CAME TO THE SHELTER:  Stevie was dumped at a local pound with her eye injured and ready to rupture.

 

THINGS I LIKE AND DISLIKE:  Despite Stevie's past, she's a very loving and friendly dog. She doesn't care for other dogs in her face, most likely due to her loss of eyesight. Because of that she would be best as an only dog.

 

HEALTH ISSUES:  Stevie's eye was unable to be repaired, so it was removed. She does need eye drops in her right eye 3 times a day.

 

Stevie is in CT and available for adoption. To apply for STEVIE please CLICK HERE

DOG'S NAME:  Teeka (Neela)

SEX: Female

AGE: 2.5

RESCUE:  Safe Harbor Animal Rescue

BREED:  Border Collie/Australian Cattle Dog

COLOR: White/Black/Merle

WEIGHT: 30 lbs.

KIDS:  Yes

DOGS: Play's okay but would thrive as only dog

CATS: Yes

 

Why I'm here:  Teeka was returned from her previous adopter as there were issues with the other resident female dog.  Teeka seems to like male dogs better and in general is okay but does tend to get jealous so would be bets in her own home.

 

THINGS I LIKE AND DISLIKE:  Teeka loves to play and is now being walked regularly on leash.  She is very smart and very food motivated so training should be good with consistency and patience.  Teeka LOVES people.

 

HEALTH ISSUES:  Teeka does take an anti-anxiety medicine right now but we are hoping with regular exercise she will be able to stop taking that.

 

Teeka is in CT and available for adoption. To apply for Teeka please CLICK HERE

DOG'S NAME:  Zeus

SEX: Male

AGE: 3-5

RESCUE:  Southern Animal Volunteer Effort

BREED:  Lab/Hound Mix

COLOR: Black/white

WEIGHT: 61 lbs.

KIDS:  Yes

DOGS: Yes

CATS: Not Tested

 

HOW I CAME TO THE SHELTER:  One of our volunteers found Zeus running the streets of Atlanta, protecting his best friend, Molly. The two of them were on their own for a long while, stinky, hungry, and covered in fleas. 

 

THINGS I LIKE AND DISLIKE:  Zeus is a 60 pound bundle of love and kisses. Seriously, this guy will make your heart explode from how many snuggles he hands out. Zeus is the epitome of tenacity and the ability to overcome. His infectious personality will surely win your heart!! Great with dogs of all sizes and kids! 

 

HEALTH:  Zeus tested positive for heart worm when he first came to S.A.V.E., but has recently completed his treatment. YAY!
