Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Age: 3 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. He looks to be a Cattle Dog/Boxer mix and is approximately 3 years old. His 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. He has a sparkling personality that is sure to bring his new family many, many smiles. Though he 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 his 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 him 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, he does have specific needs in order for him to lead a full life. A large fenced-in yard is a must. Additionally, he is very social and playful with other dogs, so another medium/larger breed dog with a similar play style (rough and tumble) is essential. He 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.

      Breed: Blue Lacy-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Blue Lacy / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $425. ** COME MEET ME ! ! ! ** 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.

Meet Bullwinkle Adventure! This goofy little pup is one of three of the Adventure litter! Bullwinkle is an adorable 7 month old puppy, with brown fur and brown eyes. He appears to be a Terrier/Mountain Cur mix. He is friendly with everyone he meets, including adults, children, and other dogs. He has not met any cats yet. He is an outgoing pup and loves to give puppy kisses! He can even sometimes be a lap dog. He will still need house training , but he has crate training down, and is currently working on leash training! Bullwinkle would also love to go to obedience class with his new family so he can learn his basic commands! We strongly recommend that all of our dogs go to obedience classes, because you get to learn commands together, and it offers an opportunity for confidence building and socialization for the dog, and helps to strengthen the ever important bond between the dog and their family! It's lots of fun, too! A well-mannered, obedient dog will be welcomed almost anywhere! Bullwinkle has a moderate energy level, he loves to play and be goofy - he is a typical puppy! Training will also help him focus his energy; he is very intelligent and eager to please! He will not require a home with a fenced-in yard, and if this is not an option he will need lots of opportunities for off-leash play, like at a dog park, which would be the next best thing. He will also need daily walks - this will also help him focus his puppy energy into something good! A tired dog is a good dog! Bullwinkle is ready for his forever home, could it be with you? If you think he is the pup for you, fill out an application today! Backstory: The Adventure litter was an "oops" litter, and surrendered to one of our southern partners. Medical Note: This dog was treated for Demodectic Mange while in the SOS program. This dog has responded well to this treatment. Please note that Demodex can flare up in any dog in times of stress (eg, transport, transition to a new home, change in food, etc.). As such, the adopter is advised to discuss this condition and best next steps with their veterinarian. SOS recommends that dogs with a history of demodectic mange be kept on regular NexGard or Bravecto for flea/tick prevention for at least 3 months or until 18 months of age. 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 .

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $425. ** COME MEET ME ! ! ! ** Age: 2 Years Weight: 54 lbs Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Goldy has asked SOS to find her an active, fun forever home and we are happy to oblige! She appears to be a boxer and shepherd mix about two years old. Goldy is eager to learn new things and to please, is very smart and loyal, and is always ready for the next adventure. Goldy would do best in an adult-only home with one or several adults who are strong leaders and offer a consistent routine where she will get at least one hour of focused exercise per day - think hikes, walks, runs, tricks, agility. She would make an amazing hiking and trail buddy. Inside the home after her walks, Goldy is a calm, well-mannered girl. She loves to cuddle up and watch a good movie, and LOVES to play with toys and will entertain herself for hours with a ball or [durable] plush toy, tossing it to herself! She would enjoy the company of a playful canine sibling, but would also do very well as an only dog so she can have all your attention and affection. Goldy is solidly house- and crate-trained and walks very nicely on a Gentle Leader/leash. Goldy does not require a yard but does need regular daily exercise and mental stimulation. Group training classes are a must for Miss Goldy, and those will also help her understand what is expected of her, help socialize her further, help her bond with her new family, and help both learn how to effectively communicate with each other. Goldy would also thrive with additional training like brain games, scent work, agility, etc. She has a very active mind, and is very eager to please and do whatever you want her to do - she just needs to be told what that is! Goldy can be unsure of some new people and most children, so an in-person meeting with all members of her new household will be very important. Goldy's new home should also be prepared to continue working with her to create positive associations and learn proper responses to new things. With training, patience, and a regular schedule, Goldy will thrive and blossom as the fun adventure dog she was born to be. Can you give Goldy the commitment and adventure she needs? This lovebug will reward you with endless love, loyalty and friendship for years to come! Apply now! Goldy's Backstory: While we don't know all the details of her history, when Goldy came into our partner rescue in January 2017, she was skin and bones. She likely was not exposed to many positive things, so she is still learning about, and becoming comfortable with, the active human environment. She continues to make great progress learning that her first reaction to new things should not be concern (bark/growling). Goldy needs a confident, dog-savvy person who is committed to continuing to work with her on this and manage her environment.

"Do you like to explore? Well, I'm Bailey and it's one of my FAV things to do!!!" Bailey appears to be a Terrier/Catahoula Leopard Dog mix about 5 years old. She's got a compact body with a tan coat, white toes, and partially blue left eye! This girl is ready-for-action, but is also more than happy to settle down for a bit of cuddling after some good exercise. She LOVES to play with toys - she will toss them around to herself, entertaining herself for hours. A fenced yard would be great for her. She keeps her kennel clean, so house training with a crate should be straightforward. She is crate trained and rides well crated in the car. She has lived with another younger dog about her size and did well, but would likely prefer to be the apple of your eye. Cats are an unknown and she hasn't been around many smaller dogs. Bailey's playful and wants to be petted by any adult she meets. We haven't seen her around children, but because she is so friendly and loving, we think she would likely do well with respectful children. Attending obedience classes with her would be a great way to socialize with her and get in some quality bonding time. Bailey is smart, eager to please and treat motivated, the perfect combination to ace these classes! She will need work on learning that jumping on people isn't polite. Dogs of all ages benefit from mental exercise, too - think puzzle toys and games. In warmer weather when she was kenneled outside, she did bark at animals passing in the night. Bailey's such a love, seeming to love everyone she meets! She was picked up as a stray in Louisiana, adopted briefly and returned. She's dreaming of her perfect forever home. Could that be yours? Fill out an application today and make Bailey's dream come true! Medical Note: This dog was treated for demodectic mange while in the SOS program. The dog has responded well to this treatment.

This smart, friendly guy is Tracker! Don't let that goofy grin or those short legs fool you - when it comes to tracking, Tracker's on it! He appears to be a Basset Hound mix somewhere between one to two years old. Tracker's coat is very soft and thick. He's currently living with cats, and couldn't care less about them. He is house trained and crate trained. Tracker can be a super goofball and LOVES to play. He LOVES to play fetch and could do this endlessly. His favorite game in March was "find the ball in the snow." He also enjoys regular romp sessions with other dogs (as long as they aren't too hyper). Tracker thrives in a home with consistent routine and structure. He doesn't currently reside with children and while he has met many and done well with them, we think he would do best in a home without the unpredictability and activity that children can bring. He's always ready for an adventure, and equally happy to chill when play time is done. We strongly recommend our dogs and their new people attend obedience classes and this is true for Tracker. It's a great place for socialization, confidence building and for getting in some quality bonding time between you and your pup. Tracker is both treat and toy motivated which makes training easier, and he is also very smart and eager to learn. A fenced yard is the ideal safe place for giving him the opportunity to follow his nose around - nose and scent work would be great for him. He also loves his daily leash walk. Dogs of all ages benefit from mental exercise - think puzzle toys and games. If you'd like to give Tracker a life full of wonderful scents to follow and love playing fetch as much as he does, fill out an application today! He'll be waiting just for you and then it's "game on"! Tracker's Backstory: Tracker was found a couple of blocks from our Mississippi partner's facility by a volunteer. He was starving and dragging a chain. He's ready to put all that behind him and settle down with his forever people in his forever home.

      Posted Breed: Belgian Shepherd Malinois / Basset Hound / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $425. Age: 1 Year (est. as of 1/1/18) Weight: 42 lbs (as of 2/1/18) Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Do you love a chalupa? Then you'll love Chica! Chica Chalupa appears to be a Belgian Shepherd Malinois/Basset Hound mix about 1 year old, and has 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, Chica is 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, and everywhere she goes, she gets comments on how cute she is! Chica is sweet and affectionate and LOVES to shower her people with kisses. She also LOVES to play with toys, and has a special skill at finding a toy's vulnerabilities and capitalizing on them (i.e., shredding them!) Once she has gotten some energy out, she's happy to chill out and cuddle. She is very treat-motivated and is doing well learning the "sit", "leave it" and "roll over" commands. Her body is one big muscle, so she's very strong. Don't be fooled by her short legs, either - if motivated enough, she can jump over 4-ft. walls. Chica has been living in a kennel/daycare situation primarily, so she's going to need some time and guidance to learn basic house manners, but she is smart and very food motivated, so we think she will catch on quickly with consistent guidance. She keeps her kennel clean, so with the help of a crate, we think house training in her new home will be pretty straightforward. Because she hasn't had any home environment exposure, a home with no or older respectful children would be best, as she might accidentally knock over small children with all her exuberance and she does sometimes use her mouth. She can play well with other dogs who are not reactive and enjoy rough play, and does best with one or just a few other dogs. Kitties are an unknown at this point, but our guess is that she would be too focused on them for everyone's peace of mind. Chica's new family should be prepared to work on house training, crate training, walking on a leash, and good house manners. Additionally, Chica is a smart girl and would do best in a household with strong leadership, consistent structure, and where she will be expected to "work" - no free lunch for this girlie! We recommend that all our dogs attend basic obedience classes and Chica is no exception. These class can help 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. Chica would love a fenced yard to romp and play, as well as daily structured leash walks. Dogs of all ages benefit from mental exercise, too - think puzzle toys, treat dispensing toys, and games. Dogs can definitely be a lot of work. This is very true for Chica! Dogs take time, patience, consistency, and commitment, but the confident, well-mannered adult dog they will become, makes it so worth it! Chica is friendly and outgoing, she's gonna make a GREAT companion! If you love a chalupa and are excited about raising Chica Chalupa and watching her blossom, fill out an application today! Chalupa kisses are waiting 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 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) .

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      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: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $425. Age: 2 Years Weight: 50 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Hey, Steve! Welcome to SOS! We hear you're looking for a fun, very active human family or individual to spend forever with! Well, we're here for ya and we'll put your bio out there! Steve appears to be a Labrador Retriever/Terrier mix about 2 years old, and just the yummiest milk chocolate color! He's always on and ready for action, but when playtime's done he's okay with hanging out and chilling. Toys - especially balls - are great fun, and being toy and treat motivated should make training a snap. We strongly recommend that all our dogs attend obedience classes and this will be especially important for Steve. He's got LOTS of energy and will need a strong leader and consistent training, as well as lots of exercise, in order to be the well-mannered boy we know he can be. A fenced yard is the ideal safe place for your pup to romp and play, but if Steve hasn't had enough exercise and gets bored, he'll climb the fence and seek adventure. If a fenced yard isn't an option, then LOTS of daily leash walks and opportunities for off-leash play in a dog park is the next best thing. Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental exercise - think puzzle toys, busy feeders, treat dispensing toys, and games. Steve will need to be house trained and crate trained. He walks on a leash and will need continued work on this, as he tends to pull when he's excited. He's good with other dogs and is able to be distracted or redirected when small animals (i.e., kitties, etc.) are encountered. His reaction is playful when meeting children - his exuberance may be too much for small children, who may be accidentally knocked down. So...if you're looking for an energetic walking, jogging, running partner, and a pup who wants to be as active as you are, fill out an application today for Steve! He'll try and be patient while he waits for you. Steve's Backstory: He was rescued by an Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) supporter and of the 250 dogs at the rescue, almost every time someone walks in the back, they ask about him. His happy, puppy energy and bright eyes tend to draw people in. He'll make a great dog for some lucky individual or family!

      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $550. Age: 11 months Weight: 50 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Meet Blade! Blade is a shepherd/lab mix who is approximately 11 months old! He is a solid 50 pounds, so he is most likely going to be a medium-large dog. He is a happy dog with a wagging tail and sleek black coat. Blade is very friendly, he is excited to meet new people and go new places! So far, he has liked everyone that he has met, including other dogs and children, although he has not met cats yet. Although he does well with children, his size and excited energy may be overwhelming to small children, and he would probably do best in a home with older children. He is an affectionate dog and always happy! He loves to play and run outside, and his favorite toy to play with are tennis balls, which he likes to fetch! He is very playful, and has lots of energy, but will settle after play time. If a fenced in yard is not an option for him, he will need lots of daily walks and opportunities for off-leash play at the dog park, which would be 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! Blade is working on his training, so far he has crate training down. He will still need to work on house training, leash training, and his basic commands. We highly recommend that all of our dogs attend basic obedience training, because you get to learn the commands together, and it offers opportunities for confidence building and socialization for the dog. It's lots of fun, too! It will also help strengthen the ever important bond between the family and the dog. A well-mannered, obedient dog will be welcomed almost anywhere you take him! Blade is ready to find his new family, could it be with you? Fill out an application for Blade today, don't wait! Medical Note: This dog was treated for Demodectic Mange while in the SOS program. This dog has responded well to this treatment. Please note that Demodex can flare up in any dog in times of stress (eg, transport, transition to a new home, change in food, etc.). As such, the adopter is advised to discuss this condition and best next steps with their veterinarian. SOS recommends that dogs with a history of demodectic mange be kept on regular NexGard or Bravecto for flea/tick prevention for at least 3 months or until 18 months of age. 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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $425. Age: 1 Year (est. as of 1/1/18) Weight: 55 lbs (as of 1/1/18) This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Are you looking for a running buddy? A pup with boundless energy? Then we have just the dog for you! This is Arby! He's sweet, super active and looking for a forever human who's super active, too, and who'd LOVE to work with him and train him to do all kinds of amazing stuff! He appears to be a Black Labrador Retriever about a year old. He's currently residing in a kennel situation so he will need house training. Crate training is in progress, and although he walks on a leash, he's a puller so he'll need some work on that, and he is reactive to other dogs when on-leash. He rides well in the car and likes to look out the window. He's playful and friendly, but can be a bit hyper when meeting new people. Kids and cats are an unknown at this point. He does get along well with other dogs when off-leash - he plays a bit rough. He can be a goofy boy, but he's smart and would greatly benefit from obedience classes. It's also a great opportunity to get in some quality bonding time between a pup and his human. Arby would most likely also benefit from mental stimulation - think puzzle toys and games. He will need a good amount of exercise each day and a fenced yard would be ideal for this, but if not an option then lots of daily leash walks along with opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park should tire him out. A tired dog is a good dog, they say! This handsome boy was picked up as a stray by Animal Control in Horseshoe Bend, Arkansas, in October 2017. He was recently adopted but returned in a couple of days because he chased his adopter's goats. If you've been looking for a dog who's as eager to be trained as you are to train one, fill out an application for Arby today! Then lace up your sneakers, fill your pockets with treats and let the good times roll! 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 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) .
