Posted Breed: Shepherd / Red Heeler / Mixed (medium coat). “Photos with Santa Paws” Adoption Event!!! I’ll be there on Saturday, December 3, 2016, at Bow chika Wow Town in Warwick RI 02886, 27 Meadow St., from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring your pet(s) to be photographed with Santa Paws and come meet me – I could definitely fit under your tree! But don't wait! Fill out an application at least three days in advance to be pre-screened! A furever home’s at the top of my Christmas list! ;@ Age: 2.5 Years Weight: 65 lbs Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Here we have beautiful Amaya! Amaya appears to be a gorgeous Shepherd/Red Heeler mix who is approximately 2.5 years old. Amaya is one of the goofiest, playful dogs we have met. We are convinced that she thinks she is 6 months old and 15lbs. She loves to romp and play with other playful dogs, and is game for snuggles and cuddles with her humans. Her favorite play-buddy is her 9 lb chihuahua foster brother; he is pretty scrappy, but Amaya also does a fabulous job toning down her play style to match his size. Amaya can be unsure of new people and in new situations, but once she trusts you, she is a very sweet dog. She enjoys cuddles and pets, but is also not overly demanding for attention and is content on being in the same room or adjacent room as her people. Amaya seems to be a quick study. She has picked up on "sit," "down," and "wait" very quickly; further reinforcement is needed with these commands to master them. She wants to please, and enjoys rewards of high value treats and verbal praise. Amaya enjoys being petted, getting ear scratches and belly rubs. She is quiet and not a busy body - she can often be found laying on the floor while her foster mom works on her computer or cooks dinner. She has found her favorite lounging spot to be on the cushions on the back of the sofa, but also enjoys large dog beds on the floor, as well as the cool floor during the summer. Amaya has some watchdog tendencies. She will watchdog-bark if new people enter her property; this can be shut down by disagreeing with her, having her back away and asking for a "sit, down, and stay." With the right guidance, Amaya settles relatively quickly and accepts the new-comer as long as they do not demand her attention or insist on giving her attention. This management must be continued in her new home to reinforce that people can be trusted, and Amaya does not need to take on that role. Amaya needs a new family who will be kind, patient and consistent with her. She may be unsure and aloof her first few days and the best response to this behavior is to give her space and ignore her. By the third day in her foster home, Amaya was seeking affection, playing with the other dogs, and being a big goof in general, and she continues to blossom as she is exposed slowly to new things. Amaya's new home needs to be patient with their expectations, provide her with consistent leadership, and manage her environment so as not to overwhelm her and keep her experiences gradual and always positive. Amaya will need basic training and gentle leadership in her home and once this has been started and she has developed a bond and trust with her new humans, she will further blossom with a small group training class. She is very well socialized with other dogs, but is still learning to trust humans. She will need continued reinforcement that people are friendly and can be trusted and experiences should be introduced at her pace. Amaya was likely not exposed to much related to the human world as a puppy. She has come a long way thus far, and she has shown to adapt very quickly. She will continue to gain confidence with further leadership, training and patience. Amaya would do best in a household with relatively few new people coming and going, no children under 15, a fenced yard and with another playful dog. Amaya is relatively submissive to other dogs but not overly so. Amaya is house trained and a perfect house guest. She is currently left loose in the house overnight with the other dogs and also when her foster leaves home and she has done well. She is not destructive and does not pace; in the morning, she will wake her foster mom with a few gentle kisses on her hand or face - whichever is closer to the side of the bed. She can be trained to live in a home without a fenced yard, but there will likely be a transition period with some accidents. She is also crate trained, though she would prefer not to be crated. Amaya is a gentle lady on the leash - minimal pulling and she walks right at your side. She loves the company of other dogs and another large, well-balanced, playful dog in her adoptive home will be essential to give her guidance and help her feel comfortable. With love, patience, time and training Amaya will reward her new family by blossoming into a confident and loyal companion. She will be a true joy to have in your life! Amaya's Backstory: Amaya was picked up as a stray in Arkansas in the summer of 2015. Upon first coming in to rescue, she was shy and unsure but she has blossomed in her RI foster home. Amaya was likely not exposed to much related to the human world as a puppy, so she will need a home that is patient, understanding and willing to work with her. Check out Amaya's videos here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKw-MvqsV34 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lPCP2GLeBU https://youtu.be/u02nVO__s88 Medical Note: Amaya tested positive for exposure to ehrlichia while in SOS foster care. This does not mean this dog had ehrlichia. Amaya is/has been asymptomatic while in SOS care and was preventively treated with a 28-day course of doxycycline. A 4Dx SNAP test should be repeated 6 months after completed treatment to confirm negative results. 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.

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.
Breed Group: Unspecified
Country of Origin: Unknown

More About Mutt Breed
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.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $425. “CHILLY DOGS” Adoption Event!!! Come meet me on Saturday, January 20, 2018, at Bow chika Wow Town in Warwick RI 02886, 27 Meadow St., from 2 to 4 p.m. Don't wait! Take me home sooner! 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. Wanna SNUGGLE? I can keep you WARM! ;@ Age: 5-7 Years Weight: 76 lbs Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Whoever said blondes have more fun was obviously talking about Sadie! This big boned beautiful blonde girl is happy, friendly and loves people and other dogs. She appears to be a Lab mix between 5-7 years old. She has all the traits and energy of a Lab - outgoing, eager to please, playful, goofy, laid back and loving. She likes to play with toys, loves going for walks, and is happy to go on that next adventure with anyone. If you are looking for a guard, Sadie is NOT your girl! Sadie's family will need to be committed to continue all her obedience training needs, as well as work on house- and crate-training. She would love to have a canine buddy in her new home, but would also love to be the apple of your eye! She would love regular walks as well as play time in daycare or at the dog park. We have not observed Sadie living with young children, but we have observed her around children at events and she is friendly and calm around them. From everything we have seen, we believe Sadie will make a fabulous family companion and do well in most situations. If you're looking for a great gal who will bring years of love and happiness with her, then fill out an application...and let the fun begin! Sadie's Backstory: Sadie was picked up as a stray by animal control in Mississippi and was taken to a kill facility, then placed on the euthanasia list due to lack of space. Luckily, she was rescued and is now eager to find her furever home. Medical Note: Based upon clinical exam, Sadie has moderate hip dysplasia. This condition does not seem to slow her down one bit, and no surgery is recommended at this time. Rigorous ac tivities like agility and frisbee are activities that would not be appropriate for her due to this condition, but long walks and even runs are still appropriate for her (and she enjoys them!) She does not seem to be in pain, but she has been started on a trial of Meloxicam, a very inexpensive ($4/month) and safe anti-inflammatory. If this medication appears to help her comfort level, it could be continued indefinitely with little concern. Sadie is on, and should be kept on, a glucosamine supplement for joint health. Medical Note: Sadie has excess wear on some of her teeth; this is possibly from chewing on rocks (a common pastime of labs). Several teeth that were thought to be a source of discomfort were recently removed and she was given a full dental cleaning. Medical Note: This dog has been treated for heartworm disease with melarsomine injections. Treatment is completed and the dog has tested negative for microfilaria; she is cleared to resume normal activity and able to be adopted. Her antigen retest completed in December confirmed that her treatment was successful. 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. This dog 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 . Please check with your vet if you should have any questions or concerns about this condition, and discuss any concerns you may have with your SOS Adoption Counselor.

I can keep you WARM! ;@ Age: 2 Years (est. as of 1/1/18) Weight: 53 lbs Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Howdy, y’all! My name’s Blu Bourbon, and I’m a Texas Blue Lacey. That’s just fancy talk for "working dog." My breed is what makes me look so cute, and gives me my distinctive features! I have a lot of energy to burn and love being outside! This really helps me to chill out while my foster mom is at work or school. Right now I go hiking on nature trails, and run around a baseball field (fenced in, off-leash) and a soccer field (on-leash). I am really looking for a forever buddy to hang out with!! I love to cuddle and gives kisses, so pucker up! Chew toys, squeaky toys, and soft plush toys allow me to keep myself occupied! There are no other doggies in my current home but I would not mind a canine brother or sister. They might even be able to be feline (as long as they can tolerate a playful pup)! I am always being told I am such a good boy! I am already house trained and I'm pretty good in my crate. I enjoy kids (though I can be a bit jumpy still). I know how to “sit,” “stay,” “leave it,” “off” and “down.” I walk like a nice boy, and I love other dogs, if I'm introduced slowly. I can have a loud bark but that’s just my way of saying hi and making sure you know I am there. I can get a bit stimulated by unfamiliar people and dogs, more so when I am on-leash, but boy do I love saying hi and playing. I am easily corrected if I fall out of line, and treats are a great motivator for me. I'd like a strong leader to show me the world, as it is a very big place to me! I am very smart and like being mentally stimulated. The trainer I’ve worked with thinks agility courses and/or nose work would be great activities for me! I can jump really high, if you’re impressed by that kind of thing! Everyone seems to be wondering why I have not been adopted yet. I think you’ll really love me, and all the fun things I’m capable of! I am very affectionate, and am looking for a home to call my own. If you think I am up your alley, fill out an application today and get the ball rolling! Medical Note: Blu is currently on Prozac to help him focus and reduce his underlying anxiety. This prescription costs about $4-10/month (depending upon the pharmacy), and his new family should expect to keep him on this for at least 3-6 months after adoption for consistency. He will likely always need to be on this, or he may be able to be gradually weaned off this under the supervision of a veterinarian behaviorist. Medical Note: Blu [PCR] tested positive for canine distemper (CDV) the day after he was given his first distemper vaccination in a Texas shelter (4/19/17). He showed mild symptoms of diarrhea, lethargy, green eye discharge from his right eye, and mild coughing for one day, all of which resolved 24 hours after he was moved to foster isolation. It is hard to know if Blu actually had distemper, as his symptoms were so mild and vaccination can alter PCR test results for up to two weeks. He has not shown any concerning symptoms since this episode, and has since been retested and is negative for distemper. It is thought that dogs can shed CDV for up to four months post infection although most do not shed the virus much beyond two weeks. Neurological signs can develop during or months after the infection. Blu has been examined, shows no concerning symptoms, and is cleared for adoption at this time; he is ready to find his fur-ever home! If you have any concerns, please discuss this situation with your trusted veterinarian.

I guess you don't have to be a party person because I bring all the fun wherever I go! You do have to be ACTIVE though, because I like to do lots of fun stuff. There's no time for lazy! I'm a live-each-moment-to-its-fullest kind of guy. Well...I guess we could take a break for some snuggling 'cause I really like that, too, but don't tell too many people - that could totally ruin my image! You see, I was living down south on the wrong side of the tracks. I really had to fend for myself growing up. That had gotten old and I'm polishing up my manners now, and looking to settle down with a nice family (well, not really "settle" too much...). I would be happy with a family of just adults or one with kids. Kids get me all excited so sometimes I knock them down by accident, but it's a work in progress - and I do like them. I've been working really hard on my impulse control and obedience. I know "sit" and "leave it" - and "stay," even though I don't really have time for that one. I'll work for treats, bully sticks and TOYS, so I can be convinced. I'm working on my house training and I've done great with my crate training. I call it my man cave. I really LOVE the car! It's like a giant moving man cave! We could go for rides, walks, a run - I'd love to do some agility training! Check out my hoop jumping skills in the video. Pretty cool, huh?

Cute, active and friendly - that's Cheyenne! Cheyenne has a dynamic personality and will be a great companion for an active person or family who likes to run or take hikes. She appears to be a Cattle Dog mix that we estimate to be around 3 years old. She is crate and leash trained, and will need to be house trained. She will need a family who will be willing, and who have the time, to dedicate to her high energy needs and basic training. She's so loving of human affection that it's her biggest motivator. She's learned that the command to "sit" gets her all the ear scratches she wants. Although she is good with kids, she will most likely be too much for a household with young children. She was okay with the cats she met while at the shelter and she loves other dogs, but some didn't appreciate her high energy and made them reactive. In spite of that, she's actually a "don't mess with me and I won't mess with you" type girl. A fenced yard would be helpful in addition to running or hiking, and long walks. Agility training would also provide her with an excellent outlet. Once she gets her required exercise and play, she quiets down nicely. She likes to play fetch but likes to have you chase her instead of returning whatever was thrown. Being a herding breed, she will not only need physical stimulation, she will also need mental and cognitive stimulation. There are toys that can be purchased to keep her mind busy, for instance: treat mazes, puzzle toys, and Kongs. Keeping her energy and mind in balance will likely keep her free of trouble and make her a happy dog that everyone will love to have around and welcomed wherever she goes. Cheyenne will make a great addition for someone who is looking for a fun, active companion. She is sure to add a lot of great memories for years to come! Fill out an application today! Cheyenne's Back Story: Cheyenne was surrendered in 2014 by an 80-year old woman whose grandson gave her to her as an active puppy. She eagerly awaits finding the right new furever home!

Do you love a chalupa? Then you'll love Chica! Chica Chalupa is one of the two girls in this litter of three pups - her other two siblings have already been adopted and you know what they say, "the best is always saved for last." These three pups appear to be a Belgian Shepherd Malinois/Basset Hound mix about 1 year old, and have the classic short legs and longer body of the Basset, and a chalupa - besides being a delicious Mexican food - is a kind of long, low-sided boat common in Mexico. In any case, these pups are cute, cute, cute! You can definitely see the Basset Hound in Chica - she has the short legs and long body. She's a "misfit" kind of cute, her caretaker says. She is currently living in a kennel situation so she's going to need to learn all the basic skills that puppies need to learn: house training, crate training, walking on a leash, and good house manners. We recommend that all our dogs attend basic obedience classes because they help build self-confidence, aid in socialization with new dogs and people, and are a great opportunity for quality bonding time between the pup and her new human family. A fenced yard is the ideal safe place for your pup to romp and play, but if that's not an option then daily leash walks with opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park are the next best thing. Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental exercise, too - think puzzle toys, treat dispensing toys, and games. Puppies are definitely a lot of work to raise. They take time, patience, consistency, and commitment, but the confident, well-mannered adult dog they become makes it so worth it! These pups are so friendly and outgoing! They're gonna make GREAT companions or family pets! Chica appears to be the most energetic of the three pups, and didn't really want to settle down for her photo shoot. With that said, she's sweet and affectionate and LOVES to shower her people with kisses. She is happy to chill out after playtime. She is treat-motivated and is doing well learning the "sit" command. Her body is one big muscle, so she's very strong. Because she hasn't had any home environment exposure, a home with older respectful children would be best - she might accidentally knock over small children with all her exuberance.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $425. “CHILLY DOGS” Adoption Event!!! Come meet me on Saturday, January 20, 2018, at Bow chika Wow Town in Warwick RI 02886, 27 Meadow St., from 2 to 4 p.m. Don't wait! Take me home sooner! 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. Wanna SNUGGLE? I can keep you WARM! ;@ Age: 2 Years (est. as of 8/1/17) Weight: 57 lbs Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This happy-faced girl is Janie! Janie was surrendered to a local Tennessee shelter when her owner passed away. She was pregnant at the time and had 13 beautiful puppies, some of whom have already been adopted. Janie appears to be a Treeing Walker Coonhound about 2 years old. She walks on a leash, but will need continued work. She pulls very hard, especially when she's on a scent or sees a neighbor's dog she wants to play with. She is working diligently on her house training (she needs to go out immediately after eating) and will need to be crate trained. Currently she sleeps on the couch with her foster siblings with no issues. She's good with kids of all ages, and is fine with dogs of all sizes, but can play rough or be goofy in play so may accidentally injure a very small dog. She's VERY interested in her foster's cats, but not aggressive with them at all, in spite of being swatted a couple of times. She has LOTS of energy and is very playful - she would greatly benefit from having a fenced yard to play in, wander around in, and explore. She dearly wants a canine sibling or younger kids to play with! If a yard is not an option, she'll need daily leash walks and opportunities for off-leash time in a dog park. Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental exercise - think puzzle toys, busy feeders and games - and since she kind of likes to tear things up when she has nothing else to do, she's gonna need some of these. Janie thinks it would be a great idea to also take obedience classes together! You know, learn some cool stuff, gain some self-confidence, get in a little socialization with new dogs and people, and of course, some quality bonding time with her own people! She's smart, obedient, affectionate and eager to please, so this is highly recommended - she'll most likely ace the class. She is still very nervous meeting new people - she shivers and stands still - so class should really help. She may be timid at first with her new family, but once she's settled in she'll warm up just as she's doing with her foster family. Janie's dreaming of a new forever home, now that her puppies don't need her. Would you like your home to be graced by this beautiful southern belle? Fill out an application today and let's not make her wait one day longer!

      Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $425. Age: 4 Years Weight: 72 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Maple and sweet just go together! Hi, everyone! I have some great news to share. My Christmas wish came true! All nine of my puppies are now in their forever homes. Now it’s time to focus more on me. On to New Year’s Resolutions! This year my focus is to lose the baby weight and to find my forever home. I can promise I’m sticking to that one! I’ll tell you a little about myself because you may be able to make my resolution a reality. I’m very friendly and really love attention from my humans. If snuggling was a sport, I would be a champion. I like kids, too, and I’m trying hard not to knock them over. I also really like playing with other dogs. I like to play rough, but I listen if another dog doesn’t like that style. Tug-of-war is one of my favorite games. So about cats...I am currently in foster with a cat, but boy is she lazy! A cat running around? I’m not so sure I could resist that. I’m a hunting dog, what do you expect? I’ve killed a few mice in my day. I’m a Treeing Walking Coonhound mix, which basically means that I’m a hunting dog and I’m super smart. I like to use my brain and would do best in a household that will be willing to work with me on that. I like puzzle toys and have been doing some nosework. I would love to learn some tricks! I taught myself one trick, opening the drawers to get out socks. I think it’s a good one, but my foster mom doesn’t appreciate it as much. I am house trained in my current foster home and have been doing so much better with my crate training. There is so much more to tell, so put in an application today and my adoption counselor can fill you in on all the details. Maybe we can ring in the New Year together? Maple's Backstory: She was left at the shelter extremely pregnant and gave birth shortly after to ten puppies. She lost one, but the rest are all adopted and doing well. She's a very sweet, loving girl who just needs someone to love her!

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $425. Age: 3 Years Weight: 51 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Meet Mrs. Bucket! She's an affectionate, playful young lady who loves to cuddle and is happy to chill. She appears to be a Shepherd mix about 3 years old. She's great walking on a leash. She has been living in a kennel environment, so we aren't sure what her house training and crate training skills are. She hasn't been introduced to cats yet and when she sees children, she gets very excited and wants to be with them. She's even-tempered and gentle with people, so she would probably do fine with kids but she hasn't lived with any while in our car. She loves to go for car rides and look out the window. She also loves squeaky and chew toys, going for walks, playgroup, meeting new people, and playing chase with the other dogs. Mrs. Bucket does best with confident dogs; she tends to focus on submissive and reactive dogs, so she would do best as an only or with another well balanced dog. Mrs. Bucket would do best in a home with a dog savy leader to help give her the structure and leadership she will thrive from. We strongly recommend that all our dogs attend obedience training and we recommend the same for Mrs. Bucket. Group training classes are great for learning cool stuff together, which helps strengthen the canine/human bond, building confidence and for socialization. Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental stimulation - think puzzle toys, busy feeders and games. Though Mrs. B may not need a fenced yard, she will require daily leash walks and opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park. This outgoing sweetheart can't wait to settle into her forever home, so let's not keep her waiting! Fill out an application today and make Mrs. Bucket's dream come true! Mrs. Buckets Back Story: Mrs. Bucket was pregnant when dropped off at the shelter, but because she was so skinny it was not apparent. She delivered nine puppies and sadly only one of them survived. Charlie Bucket was adopted and now it's Mama's turn to find her forever home!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $425. Age: 1-2 Years Weight: 37.8 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Here is your new best friend, Sweet Pea! Sweet Pea lives up to her name as she is as sweet as they come! She is a beautiful girl that looks to be a Lab mix about 1-2 years old, and at this age she is likely to be full grown. Her pictures make her appear to be black and white, but she is actually a yummy chocolate and white color. She is friendly, happy, and outgoing; loves people and other dogs. She does prefer dogs who are not in her face including goofy puppies. She will not be aggressive towards them, but does correct them and she will sometimes be protective over her things. She is fully integrated into home life and currently shares her home with two adult humans,10 dogs and 17 cats. Sweet Pea will sometimes chase the cats but she respects commands and is easily redirected. She is always ready for action, she loves to greet the neighborhood children, who are 5-14 years old, when out on her walks (her tail never stops wagging) and rough wrestle with other dogs. Sweet Pea LOVES toys. She loves squeaky toys, chew toys, and unfortunately for her foster mom, a computer mouse looks like...well...a dog toy! She also likes going places and cuddling with her humans. She walks well on a leash, she hasn't had any potty accidents in the house, and she is fine in the crate. A fenced-in yard would be a plus for Sweet Pea's high energy level - she loves to run, run, run - but if one is not an option, she will need lots of walks and trips to a dog park for safe, off-leash play. She is intelligent and is treat and toy motivated, which makes training easier and with some formal obedience training she will be the well-behaved dog that everyone dreams of having. If you would love to give Sweet Pea the loving home she deserves, please fill out an application. She is going to add lots of love, fun, and happiness to your life. Medical Note: This dog has been treated for heartworm disease with melarsomine injections. Once treatment is completed and the dog tests negative for microfilaria, the dog will be cleared to resume normal activity and able to be adopted. 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. This dog 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 . Please check with your vet if you should have any questions or concerns about this condition, and discuss any concerns you may have with your SOS Adoption Counselor.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $550. Age: 9 Months (as of 10/14/17) Weight: 27 lbs (as of 9/13/17) This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Esperanza is an absolute sweetheart! Her name means "hope" in Spanish and she's full of hope that she'll soon be in her forever home with her forever people. Esperanza appears to be a Labrador Retriever mix about 8 months old. She's currently in a kennel situation so she will most likely need to be house trained, though she does keep her crate clean. She is working on her leash walking and will need some help in learning not to zig-zag. Sometimes she pulls because she's so eager to go and introduce herself to everyone who crosses her path. She's fine with other dogs and loves to play chase. Her whole body wags from happiness when she meets any new person or dog. She is able to be redirected when coming across kitties or other small animals. She's very playful, and loves squeaky toys and going for walks. She's also just as happy to chill on a lap at times and will settle in nicely after an activity. She does sometimes get excited and jump on people, but she is mostly gentle. She responds to corrections better than any of the other puppies in her play group because she's just so sweet and eager to please. She can be a bit timid in new places, but acclimates quickly. She's smart and goofy, affectionate and even-tempered. Though a fenced yard is the safest place for your puppy to romp and play, if that's not an option then daily leash walks and opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park will do just fine. Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental stimulation - think puzzle toys, busy feeders and games. We recommend that all our dogs attend obedience training. It's a great way to help build your pup's confidence, get in some socialization with new dogs and people, and helps strengthen the bond between pup and human. And it's great fun! Esperanza was rescued by some young boys after being attacked by a pack of stray dogs and despite having been bullied, she's eager to meet everyone. You couldn't ask for a sweeter soul! So go ahead and fill out an application today. Esperanza is waiting just for you!
