Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Age: 2 Years Weight: 48 lbs Location: CT This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This handsome, handsome boy is also known as Mr. Fabulous by his foster mom, and rightly so, as he is just amazing in every way. This is Bear and Bear is deaf. Bear looks to be a Cattle Dog/Boxer mix and is approximately 2 years old. Bear's tail takes a left turn due to being broken in the past. He has black spots on his skin that show through his fur and on his ears and belly - they are like polka dots! He also has some black hair on his back, like an Appaloosa horse. He is SUPER handsome and just a sweet, HAPPY dog. Bear is good-natured and friendly - there's not a mean bone in him. He is always happy and always ready to play. Bear has a sparkling personality that is sure to bring his new family many, many smiles. Though Bear started life being dealt a difficult lot - he is deaf and his owner moved away and left Bear and another dog (adopted locally) without food and water - he has found his way into a very special situation. A local trainer who is a friend of SOS was looking for a deaf dog to foster and fully train on and off leash...and Bear fit the bill. This opportunity truly saved Bear's life and has given him the chance he has always deserved, to become the dog he is meant to be. Bear has now completed his training - he is leash trained, fully trained on basic commands, trained with solid recall - an essential skill for an active deaf dog - and also trained on a vibration collar. Our trainer has offered to support Bear with complimentary training for life in his new adoptive home. Do not let Bear's deafness stop you from considering to adopt him, as deaf dogs make wonderful family members. Just like any dog, however, Bear does have specific needs in order for him to lead a full life. A large fenced-in yard is a must. Additionally, Bear is very social and playful with other dogs, so another medium/larger breed dog with a similar play style (rough and tumble) is essential. Bear also needs a family who is committed to learning his training language and being consistent (free RI-based training support for life will be provided). Last but not least, Bear has a lot of love to give and energy to share - he will need to be provided with plenty of daily mental and physical exercise. Bear is not special because he is deaf, but because of who he is despite his deafness! Please remember, dogs do not love through their ears...they love through their hearts! If you have room in your heart and home for a dog like Bear and welcome him into your pack, we promise you that you will wonder how you ever existed without him. Medical Note: Bear was treated for generalized demodectic mange while in the SOS program. Bear responded well to this treatment and fully recovered now. Please note that there can be a hereditary component to demodex, and it can flare up in any dog in times of stress (eg, transport, transition to a new home, etc). As such, the adopter is advised to discuss this condition and best next steps with their veterinarian. Please see here for more information on demodectic mange: http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/mange-demodectic-in-dogs/741 . Please discuss any concerns with your veterinarian. Medical Note: Bear tested positive for exposure to ehrlichia while in SOS foster care. This does not mean this dog had ehrlichia. Bear is/has been asymptomatic while in SOS care and was preventatively treated with a 28-day course of doxycycline. Please see here for more information on ehrlichia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehrlichiosis_(canine). Please discuss any concerns with your veterinarian. Adoption Fee: $425 To apply for this dog, fill out an adoption application on our website: www.sosarl.org/aa/ **Additional info you should know - For most of our dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our dogs as an individual and do our best to describe and place them based on personality not breed label. Some dogs may not yet be in New England, nor ready for immediate adoption. There may be additional vetting, quarantine, waiting periods and/or fees depending upon your state of residence. If you have questions or concerns on any of this, you can discuss this with your Adoption Counselor.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). “Baby, It’s Cold Outside!” Adoption Event!!! Come meet me on Saturday, January 21, 2017, at Rumford Pet Center in Warwick RI 02886, 1000 Bald Hill Rd., from 2-4 p.m. But don't wait! Fill out an application at least three days in advance to be pre-screened and gain exclusive entry to the event from 1-2 p.m. I’d LOVE to be your forever lap or toes warmer! ;@ Age: 11 Months (as of 01/14/17) Weight: 37 lbs (as of 01/11/17) Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Sally Sunshine is here to brighten up someone's life! Sally appears to be a Shepherd mix about 11 months old. She's awesome! She's good with all other dogs, with cats, and walks beautifully on a leash - she'd make a great running partner! She will go in her crate willingly and behaves in it. We don't know yet if she's house trained, but she's very smart and extremely eager to please so house training her shouldn't be a problem. Her foster mom takes her out fairly frequently so she hasn't had any accidents in the house lately. She's good in the car and likes toys, so she's looking forward to a trip to the pet store to pick out some new ones to play with. Sally enjoys playing fetch in the house, but there are too many distractions for her to concentrate on the game outside. Her favorite toy is your basic tennis ball and we've just learned she LOVES squeaky toys! We strongly recommend that all our dogs attend obedience classes, not only because you get to learn commands together and it offers an opportunity for confidence building and socialization for the dog, but because it helps to strengthen that ever-important bond between the dog and her human family. And it’s lots of fun! A well-mannered, obedient dog will be welcomed most anywhere you take her. Though a fenced yard (6-ft. recommended because she can jump very high) is the ideal place for Sally to run and play safely, if one is not available she will needs lots of daily walks and opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park which is the next best thing - and Sally enjoys the dog park! A tired dog is a good dog! Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental stimulation – think puzzle toys and games. At 11 months Sally can still be an silly puppy and puppies require a lot of time, energy and patience to help them grow into the well-mannered adult dog they're meant to be. Sally will need help learning that her chew toys are the only appropriate chewing items and that jumping up on people is bad manners. Because of her tendency to jump and nibble on fingers, a home with older dog-respectful children is recommended. She has learned "sit" and "down" and is working on "stay." Sally does startle easily and is very cautious around the guys in her foster home, but she is a sweetheart and needs all the love you can give her! Are you ready to fill up your home with loving sunshine? Fill out an application today for Sally Sunshine and soon she could be brightening up your life!

      Breed: Dachshund-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Wakefield, RI
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Age: 1 Year (est. as of 4/20/16) Weight: 16-18 lbs. This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This handsome little guy is Loki! Loki appears to be a dachshund mix about a year old. He and his buddy Thor were surrendered to a local southern shelter with seven other dogs and judging by their extreme shyness and nervousness around people, have had very little human interaction in their lives. With patience and enough time to settle in and relax they do begin to warm up. They are learning slowly in their foster home that people aren't going to hurt them - that interaction with humans is a positive thing. Their foster is able to pick them up and carry them around, and Thor is now actively seeking out attention though he still occasionally hides. Their socialization will take time, but Loki and Thor have a lot of love to give and with patience they will each blossom in his new fur-ever home! Both dogs love to wrestle and play with other dogs and with toys - we don't know how they are with kitties. They are most likely too shy and skittish at this point to be in a home with children. Thor is a chewer - box springs, harnesses - if it can be chewed, Thor will chew it. He will need some indestructible chew toys to keep him busy. A securely fenced yard is a must. Both dogs are house trained and crate trained. Both are used to being crated at night and when their foster mom is not home. Thor is now leash trained, Loki isn't. Currently their foster is leaving a leash attached at all times and this is a good idea for awhile in their new home as well. They should also be afforded several "hiding spots" in the home: Thor prefers closets and under the bed; Loki's more into crates. An obedience class is strongly recommended for adopter and dog bonding, and for the opportunity it gives for confidence building and socialization for the dog. Though Loki and Thor could be adopted as a pair, they would most likely benefit from being adopted separately, and would do best with another well-adjusted dog in the adopter's home from which to learn social skills. It is also recommended that the adopter have experience with extremely shy/timid dogs. Both these boys are smart and with lots of time and patience, either one of them will make someone a wonderful buddy! If you've been looking for just such a buddy as Loki, fill out an application today and prepare to be amazed as he transforms into your special little guy!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Husky / Mixed (medium coat). “Baby, It’s Cold Outside!” Adoption Event!!! Come meet me on Saturday, January 21, 2017, at Rumford Pet Center in Warwick RI 02886, 1000 Bald Hill Rd., from 2-4 p.m. But don't wait! Fill out an application at least three days in advance to be pre-screened and gain exclusive entry to the event from 1-2 p.m. I’d LOVE to be your forever lap or toes warmer! ;@ Age 2.5 Years Weight: 55 lbs (as of 4/4/2015) Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Meet Winnie! Winnie looks to be an adorable Lab/Husky mix. She's a super sweet dog, very active and loves to be moving. She is house trained (she's really good at letting you know when she needs to go out) and leash trained. Winnie is used to living as an only dog, but would likely love to have a canine brother or sister, especially a well-balanced, confident dog that can help her with her anxieties - she really opens up so much when she's around other dogs. She has lived with large dogs in the past and done great. Winnie would benefit from basic obedience training with her new family, as this will help her build confidence as a happy adult. She's been working on some of her commands: "sit," "paw," "down," "stay or wait" (kind of), "leave it," and "come." Her recall needs work, especially since she has a very high flight response. She will wait before jumping out of the car, and sits and stays before any door is opened for her to go through. She also responds well to a gentle "uh-uh." Winnie is used to living a quiet life, without many new people coming and going, or taking many adventures. She takes a little while to warm up to new people and doesn't like being petted by strangers. She's not aggressive, she'll likely back away if they start to pay attention to her. It's best if new people ignore her, and not pet her or make noises at her. Within a few seconds or minutes, she'll go right up to them and sniff them. Then she's more likely to let them pet her under the chin. She's not your bouncy, overly affectionate kind of girl - she does give kisses sometimes and likes to curl up next to her person on the couch or at night. Her safe place is her crate and she definitely needs to have this, especially if there's traffic near the house. Because of her flight response being very high, she will need to always be leashed or in a fenced area until a strong level of trust is developed with her new people. She doesn't do well walking on roads - the cars and noises scare her too much, so a dog park or quiet place to walk her is best. She LOVES the dog park, the beach, and meeting new dogs! She plays really well with most all dogs and is super-fast - typically the fasted dog at the park! She'll start a game of chase more often than not and likes to play keep-away with toys, too, with the other dogs! She likes to play fetch and LOVES her toys - chew, squeaky, soft, it doesn't matter to Winnie! She'll play fetch inside the house for hours if you let her. She will splash around in the water but hasn't tried swimming yet, and she does love to sunbathe! She'll find any patch of sunlight that she can to lounge in. She has lived with kids, and does well with them. We recommend a relatively quiet household who will be very patient with Winnie and gradually work on exposing her to new situations and people so that she can continue to build her confidence. She's not the kind of girl who likes loud parties or street festivals, but she does well with car rides, and will be a fun girl to take along for walks, hikes, camping, to the beach, any quiet relaxing activity - she'll be great as your sidekick. Will Winnie's new life and forever home be with you? Winnie's History: Winnie first came into rescue at 10 months old. At that time, she was posted on Facebook as "free to any home." Lucky for her, we were able to rescue her and find her a safe and loving adoptive home. Winnie is now looking for a new home, as her adoptive family no longer has the time or schedule to give Winnie the attention she deserves.

      Breed: Jack Chi
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Wakefield, RI
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Age: 6 Years Weight: 11 lbs Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Max here! Hi, I'm Max and I'm looking for a new home, as my last family moved out of the country and couldn't take me with them. I am said to resemble a Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua mix that is around 6 years old. I would like nothing more than to be part of a loving family again. I am friendly but a shy boy, so I need a family who will be patient with me until I settle in and my confidence grows. When I get scared I have never tried to bite anyone, I will just run and hide. I'm okay with other dogs my size but larger ones make me nervous and so do little kids, so no little kids and big dogs for me. It took a few days to get used to my foster mom, but now I follow her around and I love to sit on her lap. I don't like to be by myself and when I am, I whine, so unless my new owners are home a lot I wouldn't make a good apartment living dog. I am house trained but I sometimes will mark when I'm stressed. I am crate trained and working on leash training. I get very nervous when walking on a leash, so a home with a fenced-in yard would be best for me, if not you may have to let me drag a leash behind me until I'm more comfortable with everyone and everything. I am low key and not very playful, but who knows how I will be once I know I am safe and loved again! With my fearfulness, I can be a high escape risk, so you will have to be very careful with open doors and never let me off leash in an unfenced area. Working with a trainer will help both of us get through the early stages of us getting acquainted, so ask the nice people here - they can help you find a good one! If you are understanding and have what it takes to help me come out of my shell, please fill out an application...I'm ready for a commitment, if you are! 1/4/17 UPDATE: Max is doing MUCH better with strangers and has been to a few adoption events, but he' s not really much into them - too crazy for him, but he's quite comfortable attending our Monday Night Meet'n'Greets and mingling with the guests! These informal events take place at Bow chika Wow Town, 27 Meadow St., Warwick RI 02886, every Monday night (check our website under Upcoming Events for exact dates) from 4-7. Come on by and say, "Hi!" No pre-screening necessary! Max'll be waiting for you! He is a little timid and wary but generally will let strangers approach him and pet him if they go slow. He is also doing amazing with bigger dogs now. He just has to warm up a bit to them. He is crate trained but does occasionally mark. He prefers to sleep in his foster mom's bed (under the covers, of course - his poor foster mom is running out of room!). Max is bit of a food hound - if there is people food anywhere around him, he will do his best to find it and eat it. Max's foster mom says he could learn agility...that is if they hung hamburgers and chicken nuggets around the obstacles!

      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Age: 8 Months (est. as of 01/04/17) Weight: 34 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This ball of energy is Miguel Solis! Miguel appears to be a Hound mix about 8 months old. He was dropped off on a back road and a kind person brought him to the shelter. He is new to SOS so we're still learning about him. What we know: Miguel is ALWAYS on the move and LOVES to play! He'll definitely be looking for a very active but calm and structured household. He's good with some dogs and we don't know about kitty cats or children. However with his high energy and activity level, he may be best suited to a home with older children - he may inadvertently knock over small ones. House training, crate training and leash training are in progress, and he's working on "down." We strongly recommend that all our dogs attend obedience classes, not only because you get to learn commands together and it offers an opportunity for confidence building and socialization for the dog, but because it helps to strengthen that ever-important bond between the dog and his human family. And it’s lots of fun! A well-mannered, obedient dog will be welcomed most anywhere you take him. Miguel is friendly to new people he meets, interested in new dogs, and interested but a bit timid in new places. He is a barker - he barks a lot. He's independent but also very playful, affectionate, even-tempered, smart, gentle and a goof-ball. Though a fenced yard is an ideal place for your puppy to romp and play safely, if that’s not an option then Miguel will need lots and lots of daily leash walks and opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park, which is the next best thing. A tired dog is a good dog! Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental stimulation – think puzzle toys and games. Miguel's a busy boy! If you have the time, patience and energy to devote to helping him blossom into the calm, well-mannered canine citizen he's meant to be, fill out an application today! Throw in some love, jogs and runs and Miguel will be a very happy boy!

      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Age: 2-3 Years Weight: 70 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Hey there, it's me - Sam! Are you a fun-loving active person? Are you looking for a fun-loving dog? Well then look no further - I'm the one for you! I look to be a black Lab mix that is estimated to be 2-3 years old. I am good with all dogs, of all sizes and ages. I have not been around cats or children, so I can't tell you for sure how I feel about them. I can tell you that I am sweet, friendly and love being around people. There's nothing wrong with couch potatoes, but their not my kind of owner I am looking for. I am looking for someone who will take me running, hiking or anything that is fun and requires me burning off my high energy. I am crate trained and it seems that I am likely (not positive) house trained, as I have not had any accidents anytime I have been indoors. I need more work with leash walking, and until I get better I can be too strong for some people. I have to warn you - I can be an escape artist. When I have the urge to run I will try to escape when someone opens a door, and I have also been known to push open gates and take off running. One time my foster mom thought I was safe in a secured fenced in yard so she left me unattended for just a few minutes and within seconds I was gone like the wind! I was found over a mile away, so now she never leaves me alone, even in a secured area. I love the water and playing in a kiddie pool. I do fairly well going for rides, just think how cool we will look cruising around together. I would love to go to obedience training, as know one ever spent time with me to show me how to do things that all dogs should know how to do, like: "sit" on command, "shake hands", and "down". Not only I was not taught things, I was also not treated nicely. I am likely blind in my right eye, the doctor says it was from some kind of blunt force trauma. Don't worry, I can see fine out of my left eye. I also had what is called Heart Worms, but I was treated and tested negative in November 2015. I was rescued from a high crime area last year, and now I am more than ready for my fur-ever home. If you have the love and energy for a guy like me, please fill out an application...I can't wait to start our lives together! Medical Note: Sam has been treated for heartworm disease with melarsomine injections. Untreated heartworm disease can cause lasting damage to the heart, lungs and arteries, and can affect the dog’s health and quality of life even after the parasites are gone, possibly presenting as medical complications and/or new conditions in the future. Sam showed no symptoms of heartworm disease before or during treatment. A good resource for more information on heartworm disease is: https://www.heartwormsociety.org/pet-owner-resources/heartworm-basics .

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Pointer Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Wakefield, RI
      Posted Breed: Pointer / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (short coat). Age: 7 Years (as of 12/25/15) Weight: 44 lbs (as of 1/18/16) This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This stunning beauty is Freckles! Freckles' mom was very pregnant when she was rescued after years of trying to catch her and then gave birth to Freckles and her litter mates two weeks later on Christmas Day. What more beautiful gift on Christmas than life! Freckles appears to be a Pointer/German Shepherd mix (her mom was a Shepherd). Because she's not known any life outside of the shelter, Freckles will need to be house trained, but she is already crate trained and walks well on a leash - she loves a brisk walk! She also loves to play and romp but isn't demanding of large amounts or long active events. Freckles is good with other dogs though she tends to want to be the alpha dog, and she has a healthy respect for cats, but isn't actually overly interested in them. She has done well with meeting people at various outings and would probably be fine with children. A fenced yard is recommended (6-ft. wooden) for Freckles, but she will climb a fence if left alone and gets bored. She also exhibits storm anxiety and tries to escape when there's bad weather. (She managed to get out of a 10x10 metal pen with a roof recently during a thunder storm.) Freckles loves toys and LOVES water! She would definitely be an ideal beach buddy! She will play fetch, but doesn't always bring the object back. She's affectionate, eager to please, smart and even-tempered. An obedience class is recommended, not just for the bonding aspect of it, but it helps with confidence building and socialization. Summer's almost here so fill out an application for Freckles today! You'll want to have some time to get to know one another before beach season hits! And Freckles is waiting just for you to take her there! Adoption Fee: $425 To apply for this dog, fill out an adoption application on our website: www.sosarl.org/aa/ **Additional info you should know - For most of our dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.

      Breed: Labrottie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Wakefield, RI
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Rottweiler / Mixed (short coat). Age: 4-5 yrs Weight: 51 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. We are pleased to introduce...Martin! Martin appears to be a 4 to 5 year old Lab/Rottie mix. He was found dodging traffic on a busy street in Mississippi. Luckily for him a kind volunteer stepped in to help and...you guessed it, Martin has bought a bus ticket north to join SOS! He is an extremely sweet, happy, and outgoing dog. He is moderately active and would love a fenced-in yard to play in with you. Martin loves adults, kids, dogs, and cats. He is leash trained and crate trained, but did manage to sneak out of his cage while at the shelter when he got bored! Martin's house training status is unknown, and he will need obedience classes to brush up on his house manners. Obedience classes are a great way to get to know and bond with your new family member. What do you think...is this great dog the one for you?? Medical Note: This dog tested positive for exposure to ehrlichia while in SOS foster care. This does not mean that this dog had ehrlichia. This dog has been asymptomatic while in SOS care and was preventatively treated with a 28 day course of doxycycline. Please see here for more information on ehrlichia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehrlichiosis(canine).

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Wakefield, RI
      Posted Breed: Belgian Shepherd Malinois / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Age: approx. 7 Years (born Fall 2009) Weight: 73 lbs. This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This absolutely stunning dude is Huey Lewis! Huey has more than just stunning good looks going for him! Though he will need to be house trained since kennel life is all he's known, he's crate trained and walks well on a leash. He plays great with other dogs and loves people. He's good with kids, but because he's so big, he might inadvertently knock over smaller children. Huey's good in the car and totally LOVES to play and run in the yard! A fenced yard (6-ft. preferred) is recommended so that he can do all his running and playing safely. An obedience class is also recommended, not only for the owner/dog bonding aspect, but because it can help build confidence and aids in socialization. Huey is very smart, even-tempered, gentle and can be a bit goofy. He hasn't been cat-tested yet. This is a dog that needs a person - he's very affectionate. Someone to love him, care for him, and comfort him. Huey is full of love and for the right family, he can provide a lifetime of companionship. Like his brother, Louie, he has a very unique coat and coloring. His top coat is a beautiful golden chestnut with black highlights, but his under coat is light in color. Occasionally, under the right light you can see both. His tail actually looks as though it's outlined in black! If you think you'd like Huey and his stunning good looks to be part of your life, fill out an application today! Huey's waiting just for you! Huey and his two siblings, Louie and Dewey, were found in downtown Jackson, MS, living in the underground world below the streets. The dogs were just pups then, but have since grown to be large in stature and personality. Though his early days on the streets made his brother a little anxious, Huey is just a large, playful goof. Update from our southern partner, May 2, 2016: Huey has always been an outgoing and playful guy, but somewhere in the past year he is suddenly timid and shy. I am thinking it is "shelter syndrome." While he had been going out in the large play yard I think he became insulated and now the new things thrown at him have him confused and scared. I did have a trainer coming and working with the dogs but as often happens with volunteers she has had life get in the way. I am hoping another girl can come up more regularly on weekends and help with some of the timid dogs.

Age: approx. 7 Years (born Fall 2009) Weight: 65 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped.

Louie and his two siblings, Huey and Dewey, were found in downtown Jackson, MS, living in the underground world below the streets. The dogs were just pups then, but have since grown to be large in stature and personality. The early days on the streets have made Louie a bit anxious. When we took him out of his pen for photographs, we were worried his nervous energy wouldn't allow us to get the photos that he so rightly deserved. Reaching the play yard, however, Louie took off, letting his long strides carry him in wide circles around the camera. But a strange and great thing happened next - we realized that as long as someone was touching Louie and providing him gentle reassurance, he'd show his bright smile for the camera and the world. Louie is just waiting for his human to find him - could that be you?
