Alfie-2 Alfie
Meet Alfie! Alfie is around 3 years old and he is a big boy weighing in at 70lbs even though is about 20lbs underweight. Alfie was rescued by one of our adoption coordinators from a very bad environment. She tells us that Alfie is really sweet and is starved for food, love and attention. This big guy has lots of energy because he has been tied up to a chain for a very long time. All he wants to do is stretch his legs and run! Since, Alfie is on the larger size and full of spunk, we are looking at applicants for Alfie that have older kids or no kids. Alfie is dog friendly and will be tested with cats. Alfie is crate/house trained, neutered, microchipped and will arrive in New England with all age appropriate shots the beginning of February. If you can give Alfie the life and love he truly deserves, please fill out an adoption application which can be found here: Adoption Application
Available ~ Leah
Leah-1 Leah
Leah-4 Leah
Leah-5 Leah
Leah-6 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! 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 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. 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. Leah needs to find a forever home where she is the only dog for you to dote on and also no children because Leah likes a quiet 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’t undergo further surgery on her eye and teeth until after January. We will discuss this future surgery need further, with potential applicants. 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.

Turbo is a very gentle and sweet boy between 1-2 years old. He is about 55 lbs and very happy. We have been told he is good with dogs and walks well on a leash.We don’t know about kitties. Turbo has had a rough life and deserves a good family who will invest in him and take him to puppy classes. He was due to be put down in the shelter he ended up in and NELR stepped up for him. He was probably an ourside dog who didn’t get much attention, He would thrive in a home where he has a routine and he will need a family who be patient and allow him to learn. He does need help learning to cue his owners when he needs to potty outside. Notone has ever cared about Turbo, unitl now…. So please fill out an application today and watch this boy blossom. He is stunning and has a beautiful chocolate coat. He is up to date on all vaccinations and has been heart worm treated and micro chipped.

Available ~ Tate
Tate-1 Tate
Tate-2 Tate
Tate-3 Tate
Tate-4 Tate
Meet Tate! Tate is giant love who has quickly become the shelter favorite! Tate is 1 years old and weighs around 90 lbs. Tate has been working with the shelter on walking nicely on a leash and riding in a car so he is proving that is very trainable. Tate has absolutely no human aggression, has a nice disposition and is absolutely gorgeous! Since Tate is so physically strong we recommend that he goes to a forever home of an experienced adopter. Tate would highly benefit from obedience training and needs a family that is willing to make the commitment to Tate to help him become the amazing dog we know he can be. Tate is a strong alpha male when it comes to other male dogs and is not too fond of cats. Tate’s forever home will need to be a home that has no cats or other male dogs. Tate is currently being treated for Heartworm, is neutered, will have all age appropriate shots and is scheduled to arrive in New England mid to late February. Update on Tate: Tate has come a very long way in a short period of time! In just a couple of weeks Tate has made a connection with Joe, who is at the shelter where Tate currently is, which is a really good thing. Tate encountered Joe’s big male bulldog through a chain linked fence and was interested in him but not aggressive. Tate still is a strong Alpha male and can’t be placed in a home with male dogs and/or cats. He also needs a physically strong adopter who is experienced training large dogs since he is up to 95 lbs now. With that being said Tate will not be able to find his forever home with a home with small children either. Tate was a very good car rider for our adoption coordinator Barbara and walked much better for her on the leash. He has a sweet disposition and is such a handsome guy! Tate should be ready to arrive in New England in the middle of February. If Tate sounds like the right fit for your family, please fill out an adoption application and make him part of your home: Adoption Application

Available ~ Karley
Karley-1 Karley
Karly is a wonderfully friendly girl towards other dogs, both male and female. She has a very STRONG desire to be with and around other dogs and we feel after watching her for 2 weeks that placing her in a family with other dogs is going to make her the happiest. She also came up our walkway thru our many cats, 2 on each side within 3 feet of her and totally ignored them. I am still watching for her reaction with them thru the fence since she came with info stating no kitties. She listens well and is very gentle with us. Does fine with my smaller framed 13 year old daughter. Karly appears to have a need to be with her person and is very sensitive. She will really need a family that is home a lot. She crates ok but seems to get really nervous. Reminds me of separation anxiety and it tears my heart out! She is very vocal when she is looking for attention from us. She cries loudly when we leave her also. She appears very anxious at this point. We got her on 3/20. She is in our dog motel so to say she is house broken, I cannot – but does potty in proper places. She is not destructive here either. She’s quite playful as well. Leash walking, does well but will need work. No Cats! She is heart worm treated; up to date on her shots; and is microchipped.

Available ~ Bentley
Bentley-1 Bentley
Bentley-4 Bentley
Bentley-3 Bentley
Bentley-5 Bentley
Our Older Gentleman Bentley Is looking for his forever home !! We have stepped up for this sweet boy and with help we will be removing him on Monday Morning from Clayton County Animal Control to take him to a foster home. These close calls are a little nerve racking, but it’s worth every bit of stress to get this Lab out and into a nurturing situation. He will be tested and treated, given all his shots and neutered. We do see a bruise on his leg and will have the vet check that out. He’s dirty and smelly right now and scared, but little does he know, he has a new life ahead. YEAH !!! A friend of NERL drove a few hours today to go and see him in the shelter and told us that he is very handsome, a good boy, and about 20 pounds underweight. He is going to need lots of good food and treats. He will do well to go to Puppy Classes even though he is about five or six. He is finished with all his puppy antics and just wants to settle down and relax with you on the deck overlooking the sea or the lake. He likes to stroll and say hi to every one he meets. We will revise this and tell you lots more about Bentley once he goes to the vet. If you are interested in offering a loving forever home where Bentley can live out his years with you, please fill out an application. Adoption Application
Available ~ Winter
Winter-b1 Winter
Winter-b2 Winter
Winter-b3 Winter
Meet Winter !!! Winter is a working dog who is looking for a forever family to call her own, and some jobs that she can do to help out. Her Mom was a black lab and her father is anyone’s guess, but looks somewhat like a herding dog. She is about 2 years old and can she ever run !! She loves running and is very agile. Winter will need a family or couple (or single parent ) that would be able to invest in her life. She would do awesome at puppy classes and learn how to start over with proper training. We don’t know how Winter is with children or cats because she was never exposed to them in the past. WIth positive introductions and integration, she should do very well. She does like other dogs and had an adult sibling to romp around with. She will need a lot of out door time to expend her energy and would do best on a farm or similar place where she could have something to do to allow her to thrive by taking on some jobs. She doesn’t like the crate but would rather be under the coffee table or on the couch with you. She is a bit shy and wary of new things but quickly overcomes her shyness and warms right up and overcomes her fear. Winter is a relinquished dog that was a puppy of an NELR lab. Her home situation changed dramatically recently and NELR has stepped up to find her another loving home. She will need to be with people who will invest in her and allow her to blossom. She is available now, and if you can offer her the chance she deserves, please fill out an application today. Winter needs to get out and face the world with you right beside her !!
