Available ~ Pilar
Pilar is a stunningly beautiful, calm, elegant yellow Lab/hound mix. Her foster mom says she has the best of both breeds–the beauty and goofiness of a Lab but the calmer, easy going energy level of a hound. Her golden coloring and thick water-repellent coat is Lab; her taller frame and thin nose is hound. Her foster mom says she licks her cats as if they were her puppies. She gets along with everyone and is a very sweet girl.

Pilar was surrendered with her daughter Rosa by their owner who could no longer care for them (Rosa was already adopted and is not an NELR rescue.)

Pilar is 3 years old, spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on her yearly vaccines. She will be arriving in New England on 11/2.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Greer
Greer-1 Greer
Greer-2 Greer
Greer-3 Greer
Greer-4 Greer

Beautiful Greer, with the soulful eyes, is a Black Lab/Hound/Great Dane mix. She is estimated by the vet to be between 2-3 years old and she currently weighs 60 lbs. Greer is a tall girl and her weight when rescued is way too thin for her frame (she will probably be more in the 80 lb+ range when at a healthy weight.) Greer was most likely dumped in a rural section of SC, and wandered up to a home in the area. Despite being full of milk, and a few searches of the area, Greer’s puppies were not with her, and she made no attempt to lead anyone to puppies. We suspect the puppies were probably kept to be sold, and Greer was dumped. This beautiful girl deserved way better then that, and NELR stepped in to help her (with a wonderful network of special people who played a huge role in the start of her journey with us.) Greer is house-trained and crate trained, and sleeps in her crate at night. She is a very very sweet, gentle girl, who does very well with her foster’s young 5 year old son. Greer is also completely dog friendly, but cat friendliness has not been tested. Greer is low to medium energy at the present time, and loves to snooze on the sofa both with humans and the other dogs in her foster home. Sadly, Greer is heartworm positive and will be treated for that before she is able to come up to New England. Greer will be spayed, up-to-date on all her vaccines and microchipped. At the present time, Greer does have some hair loss in spots, but she has tested negative for mange and ringworm. The vet has her on two different antibiotics, and now with being fed properly, we expect her fur loss to resolve fairly quickly. We expect Greer to arrive in New England in October.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Oakley
Meet Oakley! Oakley is a stunning male lab mix about 1-2 years young. Oakley is a big bundle of energy and needs an active family to take him on adventures to satisfy his need for exercise. Oakley would do best in a home with children over the age of 12 because he likes to be the youngest member of a loving family. Oakley enjoys learning and would love a family to show him the basics with lots of patience and guidance.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Lucy
Meet Lucy! Lucy is a beautiful lab mix who is almost 2 years old. Lucy is a bit on the shy side and prefers not share her loving home with other animals. She is looking to be the top dog in a one dog home! Lucy is a sweet girl who will also do best in a mature home with no children or children older than 12 years old. Lucy has tons of potential and will do wonderful with a family committed to provide her with training. Lucy needs a family with patience and consistency to help her build up her self-confidence and become the amazing dog she has the potential of becoming.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Autumn
A new season, a new start for our beautiful Autumn! Autumn and her siblings were kept in a rabbit hutch by a backyard breeder. Autumn was rescued by a rescue partner who convinced the former owner to turn over one puppy, but this person kept the two siblings most likely thinking they could sell them. That didn’t happen, and her siblings were ultimately surrendered to a shelter, where another rescue rescued them (they are all safe.) Due to her time spent in this rabbit hutch, Autumn has a bald spot on her shoulder area from constant rubbing against the wire hutch. This spot tested negative for mange, and the fur is already growing back.

Autumn is estimated to be about 5 months old and she weighs 27.5 lbs as of 9/25. She is all black with a white chest patch. Autumn is a very friendly puppy despite her rough start in life. She loves people of all ages and is really good with kids. She is also completely dog friendly and has also been tested around cats and did fine with them. Autumn is great in the car, initially liking car rides, but she quickly falls asleep and snoozes the rest of the way. Autumn is still a puppy and is working on mastering her house-training/pottying skills, plus starting to learn commands. At her young age, of course this will need to continue, once she finds her new family.

Autumn has the sweetest disposition and is very laid back, per her foster Mom! She already knows how to “sit,” how to use the doggie door, and she is doing really well with not jumping up (“off.”)

Autumn is up-to-date with all her vaccines. She will be spayed, microchipped, and have her rear dew claws removed, before she makes her way to New England in mid October.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Tad
Tad is a very handsome blonde lab mix who is estimated to be between 8-12 months old. Poor Tad was certainly in need of some TLC over a month ago, when he first went to his foster home. He not only had Ringworm all over, but it was suspected that he had been bitten by a snake, just prior to his entrance into the shelter as a stray. He spent the last month in quarantine and has now recovered from both medical issues. His foster Mom states that he is just the sweetest boy, and was very well behaved during this quarantine period, even though he missed playing with his dog buddies. His foster Mom also reports that he is not a barker.

Tad is an active boy, who loves to play with his toys, and loves romping around with other dogs. He is very dog friendly and has also done well around children, but cat friendliness is unknown at this time.

Tad would love an active family who will provide him with exercise and playtime activities! He is a complete love and very friendly, but he is still young and will need his training to continue once he arrives to his new family. He is already crate trained and will go in his crate with the word “kennel.” He is also learning to sit, responds to his name, and comes when called.

Tad is heartworm negative, microchipped, and up-to-date on his vaccines. We will update his bio further as his foster provides further assessments. Tad is scheduled to arrive in New England in mid October.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Ally
Ally is a precious 3.5 – 4 month old female black lab/hound mix. She was one of 6 puppies surrendered to a shelter in South Carolina (4 puppies came to NELR, 2 were adopted directly from the shelter.)

Ally and her siblings are very friendly and seem to have been nicely socialized so far. They adore people and are active playful puppies.

Ally will be up-to-date on her age appropriate vaccines and microchipped. She is estimated to arrive in New England around the end of October.

More photos coming soon!
Adoption Application

Available ~ Addie
Addie is a beautiful 3.5 – 4 month old female black & tan lab/shepherd mix. She was one of 6 puppies surrendered to a shelter in South Carolina (4 puppies came to NELR, 2 were adopted directly from the shelter.) There were probably two Dads involved with this litter, as Addie looks to be a Lab/Shepherd mix, while the rest of her siblings appear more Lab/Hound mixed.

Addie and her siblings are very friendly and seem to have been nicely socialized so far. They adore people and are active playful puppies.

Addie will be up-to-date on her age appropriate vaccines and microchipped. She is estimated to arrive in New England around the end of October.

More photos coming soon!
Adoption Application

Available ~ Chevy
Look at that face and that million dollar smile! Chevy is a 3 year old male chocolate lab mix. Chevy was an owner surrender to the shelter, whose “crime” was that he is a bit of an escape artist. Due to his penchant for “breaking loose” and wandering, Chevy will require a family who has an established secure 6 foot physical fence (no underground fencing for Chevy, he will go right through it.)

This gorgeous boy is very people friendly & dog friendly, however he does have a prey drive and will chase small animals/critters. Chevy is seeking a home with NO cats and NO farm type settings please.

We suspect that Chevy has spent his entire life outdoors, so his foster will be helping him to polish up his house-training/pottying skills and his indoor manners. Chevy absolutely loves human attention and is completely ball crazy…you will be his best friend for life if you play fetch with him!

Chevy weighs 75 lbs and is currently working on his leash training with his foster family. He does not appear to have had many walks in his life, and is a puller right now, so this will need to continue to be worked on by his new family. Chevy absolutely love car rides and will jump right into the car! His foster family is taking him out to different places and stores, and he loves to meet new people!

Chevy is heartworm negative, neutered, up-to-date on his yearly vaccines, and will be microchipped. He will be arriving in New England in mid October.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Moses
Moses is a stunning 2 year old male Yellow Lab Mix, who currently weighs 53 lbs. He is a sweet shy boy who does well with other dogs of all sizes. He also seems fine around cats, curious to make friends with them, but not aggressive towards them.

Moses is on the shy/timid side right now. He has spent most of his life in a yard by himself, seemingly without a lot of attention, but he does warm up to new people fairly quickly. He is also good with children.

Moses loves to play with his tennis ball and enjoys his walks. He does pull a bit on the leash, but his foster family is working on correcting this, and they are already seeing progress with each walk. Moses is crate trained and appears to be house-trained. He was marking in his new foster home, but this was prior to his neuter.

Moses can be a bit of an escape artist and can easily go over a 4-1/2 foot fence, so he will need a securely fenced yard with a 6 foot fence. Additionally, although he is good with children of all ages, due to his timidness, we will be looking for a family with older children 10+; as the younger kiddos may not be as careful with closing doors and gates…and if left open, Moses could very well bolt.

Sadly Moses is heartworm positive, but he will be treated in SC before heading up to New England in mid November. Moses is neutered, up-to-date with his vaccines and microchipped.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Eric
Please meet the very handsome Eric! Eric is a one year old male black lab mix. He is on the smaller side, weighing in at a svelte 42 lbs! Eric is a complete love and was a shelter favorite. To meet Eric, is to instantly fall in love with him!

Eric is outgoing and very playful, as would be expected from a dog his age.However in spite of his energy level, he is also well mannered. He has been to a few rescue events down South, and when his handler was busy, he was content to sit and wait patiently while she was busy with other tasks. Eric is a smart boy who we believe will pick up training quickly. He is eager to please and absolutely loves attention from humans of all ages…he soaks it up!

Eric is extremely dog friendly and loves playing with his canine buddies, but cat friendliness is unknown at this time. He has a beautiful sleek black coat and a very expressive face. He is ready for a family to call his very own!

Eric is heartworm negative, up-to-date on his vaccines, neutered, and will be microchipped. He is expected to arrive in New England the first weekend of November.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Bridei
Gorgeous Bridei (pronounced Bride-E) originally came to NELR as “Sir Duke.” He was adopted in July 2014 and his last family just loved him to pieces. We are going to reintroduce him as Bridei, as he does know and respond to that name now. Bridie is a great boy who is very sweet, very loving and loves to cuddle. He is also very dog friendly and would do great with a dog companion…the issue with the home he went to, purely centered around the kitties in the home…Bridei just does not do well with them, and became way too rough with them. Bridei’s new home must be NO CATS.

This handsome guy is a kid at heart, who loves to play, loves to have fun, and loves to steal a kiss when you are not looking. Bridei is very social and outgoing, and was one of the most popular dogs at the shelter, with the volunteers. He is active and medium to high energy, so he does require a lot of exercise and playtime. A physically fenced in yard would be ideal for Bridei to run around in.

It is hard to tell from the photos, but Bridei sports a dark chocolate and black swirled coat. He is a smaller framed 1-2 year old lab mix, weighing only 47 lbs. He is heartworm negative, neutered, and up-to-date on all his vaccines.

Bridei LOVES everyone, and is good with children over about 6 yrs old (he was even featured in a video playing dress up with one of the shelter volunteer’s daughter.) He is a bit bouncy in his play though, so he might knock the toddlers down.

This handsome boy would make a wonderful addition to an active family. He loves to be in the middle of things, and would love a family to take him on long walks, maybe hiking, etc…just enjoying various activities with his eventual new family. Bridei will require some further leash training and lots of exercise! He is more the life of the party type of guy, as opposed to a couch potato, at his young age.

Bridei is house-trained, sleeps on his dog bed at night, LOVES to be petted, is very generous with his kisses, and loves his meals!

If you are interested in welcoming Bridei into your family, please apply to adopt at the link below:
Adoption Application

Available ~ Lacey
Lacey is an adorable 12 week old (as of 10/6) female yellow lab mix puppy. She is a typical active, energetic, playful puppy, who adores human attention. She weighed 21 lbs at her vet appointment on 10/6.

Lacey is ready to find her forever family, and she is at the perfect age to start her training and learn her manners.

Lacey will be up-to-date on her age appropriate vaccines and microchipped. She is expected to head to New England around the very beginning of November.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Baylee
Baylee is a beautiful lab/shepherd/? mix who is about a year old and weighs 56 lbs. Bailey was rescued from a NC shelter on 7/25/14, and gave birth to 9 puppies not even 12 hours later on 7/26/14 (she actually had 12 puppies total, but 3 were stillborn.) Baylee is just a pup herself, but she was a good Mom to her pups, and as they got older, she was very playful with them. Her puppies are all either now adopted or awaiting adoption up in New England. Sadly Baylee is heartworm positive, so she stayed back in NC where she will receive treatment for her HW disease before heading North.

Since recovering from her pregnancy and spay, Baylee is quite agile and enjoys being active. She would be great for someone looking for a dog to train for agility or looking for a hiking partner. With her agility though comes the knowledge that she will jump right over shorter fences, so she will need a securely fenced yard (6 foot tall) to play in.

Baylee is very dog friendly and seems to be learning a lot from the other dogs in her foster home. She does seem to prefer dogs her own size, and would do best in a home with another friendly large sized dog. She is submissive to other dogs and is still learning how to play with them. Her foster Mom does feel that she is a little too interested/too active for the kitties though, so she is looking for a NO cats home.

Baylee is still somewhat timid, but gaining confidence every day; however younger children do make her nervous, so her ideal forever home will have no little ones. She does great with teenagers though and is in a foster home with two teens. No kids or kids 14+ would be ideal for her needs. Baylee is still very young and very puppyish, so an active person/family would be perfect…she needs her exercise!

Baylee is house-trained and crate-trained. She also enjoys car rides, but does become nervous when a big rig or loud motorcycle comes near the car.

Baylee absolutely loves to cuddle, and loves her chew toys. She seems to prefer women, but also loves her teenage human foster brother. Her foster Mom notes that she is terrified of men/boys wearing baseball caps or removing them…most likely from a bad past experience in her short life; but she is coming around with each and every passing day. She has made amazing strides with her confidence just in the time she has been with her foster family. She also had no training at all when she first arrived, she didn’t seem to know a single command, but she is also being taught these as well. She will also try to bolt out of doors early on, before she bonds with her human. Once she is bonded, she wants to be right by your side at all times.

Baylee is a sweet playful girl who can finally just enjoying being a dog and having fun. With a little more training, she will make someone a wonderful companion. She may have had a rough start during her first year of life, but she will know nothing but love from here on out.

Baylee is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccines, and will be completing her heartworm treatment before she heads to New England. Her arrival is still to be determined, but we estimate her arriving during the holidays.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Leah
Leah is a beautiful 2-3 year old chocolate lab mix, who was not treated with the love and kindness she deserved until now. Leah has been in our rescue since June and she has made amazing strides since arriving to her current foster family. They have worked with her so hard, and she is now ready to find that very special family of her very own! As her foster Mom said, she has gone from a very scared timid girl who was too afraid to even walk into the house, to a transformed absolute angel, who now loves hanging out on the sofa, wants her head in your lap whenever you sit down, and is eager to learn.

Despite Leah’s initial anxiety about being inside a home verses just being left outdoors alone and kenneled, she is fabulous in the home now! She went from a girl who would not go inside and had to be leashed to the foster’s dog to actually get her to follow him inside, then to being terrified of even passing through doorways in the home…to a girl who now hangs out on the couch, has never had an accident in the home from day one, never bothers anything she shouldn’t be touching, doesn’t chew, doesn’t counter surf, doesn’t get into trash, she is a very polite house guest in her current foster home!

Leah most likely spent her young life in an outdoor kennel, which our vet believes she constantly gnawed on. Due to that, her front teeth are completely ground down to the gum line and one canine tooth is broken off. She also has already had cherry eye surgery, but it did not take, and will need to be done again. Lastly, she has already been treated for her heartworm disease. Due to her heartworm treatment, she can not undergo further surgery on her eye and teeth until after January. We will discuss this future surgery need further, with potential applicants.

Leah has transformed from a girl in pretty rough physical condition, to a complete beauty. Her fur is now shiny and glossy looking, and she has gained the weight she needed (she weighs just under 60 lbs now.)

Leah is 100% dog friendly and it will be a requirement that she is adopted to a family with another calm dog. She adores people now, but a doggie buddy gives her more confidence. She is great with dogs of all sizes and ages. Leah is also completely cat friendly and shows zero interest in the kitties in her foster home. Lastly Leah has also been tested around kids from the ages of 3 to 16. We recommend a more quiet laid back home for her, with older kids, but if there are younger visitors from time to time, she did exceptionally well with a very active 3 year old boy who she cuddled right up to.

Leah is still “jumpy,” startles easily, and probably always will be. If you drop something, she will jump. If there is a sudden loud noise she will also jump. Leah has been wearing a thundershirt, which in her case, has helped tremendously…she is far more relaxed and just a happy girl now, who is learning that she will only be treated with kindness from here on out, will always have her meals each day, and is very treat motivated…she will work that “sit” for as many treats as she can get! No matter where she is in the house if she hears someone say “sit” (to another dog in the home,) Leah will come running to show her sitting skills :-)

Leah is just a sweatheart! Yes she will need to be given the time to bond to her new family, but once bonded to you, she will be your best friend for life!

Leah is spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on all her vaccines, and has been heartworm treated. Her future medical needs will include dental surgery and another eye surgery for her cherry eye.

Adoption Application

Adoption Pending ~ Kodiak
Kodiak is a fabulous chocolate boy, who is estimated to be between 2-3 years old, and he weighs 59 lbs. Kodiak is just an amazing boy, who despite having a collar on when he came to the shelter as a stray, no one ever came looking for him.

Kodiak was definitely someone’s pet, as he is potty trained and knows basic commands. His foster describes him as the perfect house guest, who is very friendly with everyone, both adults and children. Kodiak is also dog and cat friendly. He also very much enjoys any activities which include water and swimming.

Sadly Kodiak is Heartworm Positive and being treated. He is already neutered and up-to-date on his vaccines. He will be arriving in New England in late October.

Adoption Pending ~ Buddie
This distinguished gentleman is Buddie! Buddie was found wandering on a highway in Georgia and saved by a good samaritan.

Buddie is estimated to be about 7 years old and he weighs 70 lbs. This gentle boy is very laid back, lower energy, and he just loves everyone, especially men…he seems to really enjoy hanging out with the male humans in his foster family, and bonding over a great football game :-) Male or female though, Buddie just loves people and wants to be with them. He is also great with kids and with other dogs. Cat friendliness is unknown at this time.

Buddie is heartworm negative, neutered, and up-to-date on all his age appropriate vaccines.

Buddie’s tail is always wagging and he is a sheer joy to spend time with. Buddie is looking for a Buddy of his very own…if that is you, please fill out an application today! Buddie will be arriving in New England the weekend of 9/20.

Adoption Pending ~ Jewell
The most precious of jewels, is our sweet little Jewell! Jewell is estimated to be between 4-5 months old. She is a black lab mix, but her shiny coat does have a tint of a chocolate sheen to it.

Jewell found herself in a shelter with her sister, and was very frightened (her sister was adopted directly from the shelter.) However away from the shelter, Jewell is definitely starting to come out of her shell in her foster home. Although still unsure of herself and on the shy side, she will eagerly give you kisses on the hand.

Jewell is very dog friendly and enjoys spending time with her foster’s dogs. She has not been cat tested as yet, but with her more shy nature, we suspect she may be fine with them.

Jewell is as pretty as her name. She has a beautiful coat and the most gorgeous eyes! Each day she gains a bit more confidence thanks to her wonderful foster family, and she is going to make a wonderful companion for a lucky family. Jewell is of course just a puppy, so she will need ongoing training, exercise, and lots and lots of love!

Jewell is heartworm negative, and will be up-to-date on her vaccines, and microchipped before she makes her way to New England in mid October.

Adoption Pending ~ Brandon
Our very handsome and loving Brandon is estimated to be between 1-1/2 to 2 years old. He is heartworm negative and weighs 65 lbs.

Brandon wants to be everyone’s friend. He not only loves people, but he is also very dog friendly, and seems to also get along well with his foster family’s cats. Brandon does not appear to have had a lot of training yet, which his foster family will be working on, to get him ready for his eventual forever family. We suspect that Brandon didn’t have the best life prior to being rescued, and was probably kept outside 24/7. He also has a couple of scars of unknown origin on his face and some missing fur on his ears. Despite whatever his past has been though, Brandon has a ready smile for everyone! He is sweet as can be, eager to please, and with further training, he is going to be a wonderful companion and friend.

Brandon will be neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on his vaccines. He will be making his way to New England in mid October.

We will update his bio as his foster family continues to assess and work with him.

Adoption Pending ~ Duke
Duke is a BIG boy! This handsome guy weighs in at 86 lbs now (past vetting shows he weighed 100 lbs in April of 2014.) Duke was an owner surrender at the shelter, and he was surrendered with some past vetting paperwork (which we rarely have!) Duke’s birthday is listed as 12/31/07, making him a New Year’s Eve baby, who will turn 7 at the very end of December. Duke was already neutered when he arrived at the shelter, but sadly he did test heartworm positive. He will have heartworm treatment before heading up to New England in late November.

Duke is a complete teddy bear who will shower you with kisses. He is also 90% potty trained and rides well in the car. However, although he has clearly been an inside dog, he has never been taught even the simplest of commands, like “sit” or “stay” or even “no.” He also needs leash work, and at this point, he will walk you, instead of the other way around. However, Duke is VERY food motivated (more on that later!) and he is with a great foster family who will be working on teaching him his manners, basic commands, and working with him on the leash.

Duke has a very laid back personality, is dog friendly and as noted LOVES people. However, Duke is not a fan of the kitties, and it will be an absolute requirement that his new home NOT have cats. Duke is very good with the other dogs in his foster home, but due to his size, we recommend that another dog in his forever home not be a small sized breed (i.e not cat sized.) He does best with medium to large sized dogs.

As mentioned, Duke is very food motivated, in fact we think he spends all of his time when he is not sleeping, looking for food! His foster family is already working on this, but he will currently counter and table surf, would probably go straight for any trash barrels if he had access to them, and tries to investigate every closet and cabinet in the home to see if they contain food items! He is not destructive in the home, in that he does not chew on things he shouldn’t, but he is constantly on the hunt for any food items.

Despite needing the training mentioned above, which he will be receiving over the next two months (and we will update his progress in his bio,) Duke is a true love. Yes “older” dogs can learn new “tricks” and we know with a little work, Duke is going to be a fantastic companion! He is a boy you fall instantly in love with, but who needs some polishing up on his manners. For the most part, he just wants to hang out in the house with you (he prefers being inside over being outdoors,) but we wouldn’t recommend him making a great dinner party guest at this moment in time ;-) However, as his foster Mom said, with a little training, he is going to make someone an awesome new family member.

Duke is neutered, up-to-date on his yearly vaccines, will be heartworm treated, and will be microchipped, before heading to Maine in late November.
Lastly, Duke is currently being treated for a yeast infection in his ears, which has spread through his body. He is on meds and a medicated lotion for that as of 9/29.

Adoption Pending ~ Marina / Koda
Beautiful Marina is a 4.5 month old, 46 lb, purebred black lab who was born on April 12th. Marina is a typical happy playful puppy, who absolutely loves to swim, and loves her toys.

Marina will need to start her puppy classes to learn her basic commands and bond with her family. She currently gets so excited to see her people, that she jumps up to greet you. This is being worked on by her foster, and her puppy classes will also help.

This little cutie is up-to-date with her vaccines and will be arriving in New England in late September.

Adoption Pending ~ Cocoa
Handsome Cocoa (or Cocoa Butter as his foster calls him,) is a 2-3 year old chocolate male lab. Back in August, Cocoa was hit by a car, which resulted in a dislocated hip. His former owner tried to deal with the injury, but once the huge hematoma came up on his side, she knew she had to surrender him to a shelter to try and get him the help she couldn’t afford. By that time he was surrendered two weeks after the accident, the hematoma resembled a basketball growing out of his side. We apologize for the graphic photos in his album, but they show the injury prior to surgery. Cocoa has already had corrective surgery, gained some weight back, and is now recovered. He does still walk with a limp and probably always will, but he enjoys his walks and playing with the other dogs in his foster home.

Cocoa is an absolute sweetheart! He is completely house & crate trained, is not much of a barker, and is very good natured and laid back. He is also very dog friendly with dogs of all sizes, adores people, enjoys his toys, seems to be cat friendly as well (his foster has two cats and he does not chase them…he has also been seen cuddling right up next to one of them for a nap.)

Cocoa enjoys hanging on the couch and cuddling with his humans. He does love his walks, but due to his past injury, he would not be a dog you could jog with or take on demanding hikes…instead, nice relaxing strolls are on the agenda, and just what Cocoa loves and needs.

Cocoa is heartworm negative, neutered, up-to-date on all his vaccines, and will be microchipped, before heading to New England in mid October.

Adoption Pending ~ Bo
Bo is an attentive and gentle boy, who is estimated to be between 2-3 years old. He is the color of honey, and will mesmerize you when looking into his spectacularly beautiful eyes!

Bo appears to be house-trained and also knows how to use a doggie door. Despite not having any accidents in his foster home, he may have lived mostly outside, as he was initially very afraid of going through doorways in the home. That quickly resolved within the first 24 hours, and he now seems to be quite comfy in the house.

Bo is very dog friendly, but he does become excited and silly when he approaches another strange dog, while out walking with his foster Dad. He walks well on a leash, but will pull if he sees another dog. His foster Dad is taking him for walks every day, and working on correcting this. Bo rides very well in the car and seems to really enjoy his daily rides, but his foster is still working with him on initially getting into the car (at this time he needs to be lifted into the car.)

Bo currently sleeps in a dog bed in his foster’s bedroom. To date he has been very good in the home, and does not chew on anything he shouldn’t, nor has he gotten into anything.

Bo loves people and is super happy to meet new human friends, but he has not been able to be assessed around children yet. His foster doesn’t have a cat, but the shelter’s assessment was that he was too interested in the kitties, so he will require a NO cats home.

Bo is heartworm negative, and will be neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccines, before heading to New England in mid October.

Adoption Pending ~ Alex
Alex is an adorable 3.5 – 4 month old male black lab mix. He was one of 6 puppies surrendered to a shelter in South Carolina (4 puppies came to NELR, 2 were adopted directly from the shelter.)

Alex and his siblings are very friendly and seem to have been nicely socialized so far. They adore people and are active playful puppies.

Alex will be up-to-date on his age appropriate vaccines and microchipped. He is estimate to arrive in New England towards the end of October.

More photos coming soon!

Adoption Pending ~ Aiden
Aiden is a sweet 3.5 – 4 month old black lab mix. He is mostly black with a line of white fur on his chest. Aiden was one of 6 puppies surrendered to a shelter in South Carolina (4 puppies came to NELR, 2 were adopted directly from the shelter.)

Aiden and his siblings are very friendly and seem to have been nicely socialized so far. They adore people and are active playful puppies.

Aiden will be up-to-date on his age appropriate vaccines and microchipped. He is estimate to arrive in New England towards the end of October.
