"LINI"
Pit Bull Terrier mix, 9 years
Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Hello! My name is Lini! Most like to call me Lini the Love Bug because with my sweet disposition, it is hard not to fall in love with me! I enjoy rides in the car and will follow you anywhere. Especially when I hear that refrigerator door open ”this is my favorite sound! I also enjoy long walks on the beach. Sometimes I need reminders not to be vocal on our walks and I am catching onto this concept very quickly. I must tell you that I REALLY love my people too! All shapes and sizes are fine with me-kids and adults. I love them all!! I am also fine with other dogs once we have a proper introduction.

Currently I reside with two doggy foster siblings who I get along with just fine. I prefer to take a back seat when they play but everyone is respectful of this. My foster mom lets us all sleep on the bed together, which is one of my favorite ways to end each day. I am a great listener and good with my commands. Right now I know sit, down, stay and I can give paw. I have also learned to take my food gently from your hand. I am willing to learn new things too if you would like to teach me. I am very well mannered in the house and there is no reason to crate me. Don't let my age deter you!! I run, play with toys and go up and down stairs without a problem.

To sum things up, my ideal home would be a place where I could be cherished and loved. My potential owners could give me moderate exercise, provide a relaxed environment and a laid-back canine friend would be fine with me. If you are looking for a sweet, well-mannered lady, I am your match! I am so ready to give you all of my love! Are you ready too? I hope so!!

"MILLIE"
Aussie shepherd/Cattle Dog mix, 6 years

My name is Millie and I have a lot of love to give although sometimes my anxiety gets in the way. I just finished a two month “doggy vacation” at John Gagnon’s Pet Resort where I learned to play with lots of other doggies and lost a lot of weight in the process. My new foster mommy says that I am one of the most loyal and dedicated friends she has ever had and that I give the best most gentle kisses! Will you be my future person? Once we've established a bond I promise that I will protect you! Sometimes I might growl at another dog that approaches you but I'll be fine if you just get up and walk away. When we go to bed at night, I really love to snuggle with you in bed. I look forward to this bedtime routine so I would be a bit upset if this had to change. I am also very ready and willing to learn the ways of the world if you would be so gracious to show me. I really enjoy being around my people and love to have someone around all the time or else I get a bit lonely and sad. With that said, you can still leave me alone when you go out but if you are home, I would hope that we can spend as much time together as possible.

You best believe I want all the pats and kisses you can give! Don't we all? I like to play with the other dogs but I don’t always like to compete with them for your love so if I could be the one and only dog for you to love, this would be fantastic! I promise I will not disappoint you! If you do indeed have another furry friend in the house, I would prefer them to be the calm and gentle type. Not only do I like to go running with my foster mom but I also like to chase the kitties around… but I don’t think they enjoy that as much as I do. I love to be petted and scratched by my foster mommy but need to form a bond with a person before I let them scratch my bum. For this reason, I probably shouldn’t join a family with young children either. I am a herding dog so a future owner who is familiar with our quirky nature would be an ultimate plus!

"KINGSLEY"
Min Pin, 7 years

Meet Kingsley. Kingsley needs a fenced in yard, no exceptions! Kingsley is a cute min pin mix with striking blue and brown eyes. Kingsley knows commands such as 'come', 'sit', and 'down'. He's currently working on 'leave-it' and needs a bit more work on 'stay'! Kingsley knows 'come' so well, that he practically flies across the back yard when called.

Kingsley is a fearful dog and can't be picked up and handled but he does like to be scratched under the chin. He especially loves snuggling in the morning in bed. Kingsley doesn't walk on a leash but he can drag one around. He is very content to be a home body! He does take time to warm up to new people and other dogs. He gets along wonderfully with his foster dog siblings and enjoys playing with them.

Kingsley has come a long way to overcome his fear. He's making slow and steady progress. He will now initiate contact with his foster parents and seek out attention. He will even paw at you if he thinks you're not paying attention to him. And once in a while, he might even give them a kiss!
