Beagle/Terrier mix, 2 years

Meet Pippin! She found herself only a day away from being put to sleep in the most horrific manner. The dog pound caretaker begged with our MO contact to rescue her since he felt she would make a great pet. Pippin is now safe and sound and fully vetted.

Pippin is a beagle/terrier mix with just the sweetest face! She is about 2 years old and weighs 31 pounds. Loves her people, great with other dogs and kids. She is crate trained. Low to medium energy level. Pippin does not want for much. She is content just hanging out on the yard checking things out or settling with you in the house. Just a very precious girl who now needs a home of her own.

Chino was found wandering in a front yard in AL. He was very thin and weak. He was brought to and taken in by a local vet. No one ever claimed him, so he has was boarded there for over two months. And though the staff just adored him, they wanted Chino to have a family/house of his own beyond the four walls of his run area. And so, thanks to a wonderful southern volunteer, Chino was able to pack his bags and head to New England. Chino is 2-3 years old and now weighs a healthy 40 pounds..a perfect size! Chino is great with other dogs and loves every person he has met. Be prepared for kisses and constant tail wagging! He is interested in and sometimes chases cats, does not harm them, but may be too much for a kitty who is not dog savvy. He is currently residing with four other dogs and an older cat in his foster home. He plays endlessly with his doggie siblings and though not a requirement, would love to have a canine sibling.

Chino is very smart. He has already mastered a treat board game. His training with basic commands is going well. And he has not had any accidents inside since arriving to his foster house. He loves walks, hikes, fetch, belly rubs and has the cutest way of throwing his toys up in the air (see video). He also loves car rides.

Chino is playful, entertaining, loving and just yearns to have a home to call his own. Perhaps yours?

Check out a few video of Chino having fun by himself and with a foster bro.

Howdy, my name is Baxter! I am an Lab/Terrier mix, almost 5 years old. My sister and I were found as puppies on the side of the road by a Good Samaritan. That was our 1st break. We lived a great life together in our new home and loved our new mommy - - full bellies and lots of love, even made some new friends with our mommy’s kitty cats. Our mommy fell on hard times and lost our home and she had to give us up. It was a sad day. The pounds in Texas are full and lots of doggies are being put to sleep, but our mommy’s prayers were answered as yet another Good Samaritan saved us from going to a shelter. What a relief and we got our 2nd break in life! We were put in foster care and we get some attention from the volunteers and get to play and eat good food and have fresh water.

The nice man who found a home for my sister is still looking for my forever home. I need just one more break in life and I’ll be home free! Will you take me into your home and we can love on each other forever and forever!

I love kids and cats. I am good with other dogs. Would you give me a chance? I promise you won’t regret it. I will be your best buddy for all of my days!
