"PHOENIX"
Bull Terrier mix, 9 years, Spayed Female
Phoenix is about 9 years old, spayed female bull terrier mix, about 60 pounds. She is very sweet never really barks, and is very friendly with other people and animals. Phoenix's behavior and disposition is good with people and other dogs. However being the only dog and pet would be best for her so that you can give all the time and energy all to her. Living with adult kids would be fine - but we suggest no smaller young kids even though she has a very good disposition with humans.

Her owner passed away and a family member has taken in Phoenix, however it is not working out because the family works so so many hours and they do NOT have the time for her. She needs socializing, leash walks, exercise, and getting out there again. (She may have some anxiety since her owner died however she needs more interaction,exercise and leash walks, etc... which the family members cannot give her -- she ends up in a dog crate. Her anxiety is workable for sure... she loves people and other dogs. If you work from home most of the time and or someone works nights and others work days - this is what Phoenix needs!!)

If your interested in Phoenix contact us at 781-335-1300 leave a message and or email us: masshumane@aol.com

Pocket Pittie, 3-4 years, Spayed Female
Mass Humane Society - Partnership & Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Despite everything that Babs has been through- she greets every person with a wagging tail and a wiggly butt. You’d never know that she once lived a life of abuse and neglect. Those days are behind her, and thanks to our friends at Happy K9 in Somerville, MA, and PAWS New England, Babs is onto bigger and better things!! Babe is a 3-4 year old spayed female, Pocket Pittie, 35 pounds, UTD on all shots, Heart Worm negative - on prevention. Good with dogs, However prefers to be the only dog, but is attending doggie play day. No cats.

Babs is a gorgeous pocket pittie at just 35 pounds. She absolutely loves people and her most favorite activity is cuddling on the couch. She enjoys going for walks, playing fetch and chasing balls. Babs continues to work on leash walking and has had training at Happy K9. The great folks there will be providing post adoption assistance for this great gal as they are truly invested in her success! Babs would make a wonderful companion for an active family! She is perfectly crate trained and house broken. Now she just needs a family to call her own!

"SHADOW"
Carolina/Lab mix, 3 years, Neutered Male
Mass Humane Society - Partnership & Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Shadow is a 3 year old neutered male, Carolina/Lab mix, all shots UTD, about 62 pounds, Heart Worm Negative and micro chipped. He is good with dogs for sure, no cats and kids.

It’s now been 4 months since Shadow arrived to New England and he continues to make tremendous progress in his northern foster home!! He’s often found hanging out with his canine brothers, asking his human family for scratches, sorting through a collection of toys, or snoozing on the rug. When his foster parents come home, he rushes down the stairs to welcome them with tail wags and play bows. At night, Shadow enjoys snuggling with his foster mom in bed and is the ideal companion for someone who likes to sleep in.

Shadow is a sweet, gentle soul who doesn't have a mean bone in his body. He is shy around new people and places so he will need a patient home to help him feel safe. Shadow’s social skills with other dogs are impeccable – he gets along with dogs of all shapes, sizes, and personalities. In fact, we’d love to see Shadow get adopted into a home with another confident dog. Shadow knows the commands come, sit, outside, and bedtime. He’s very well behaved in the house and can be left out of his crate while his foster parents work 9-5.

Shadow is looking for a patient home with a fenced-in yard. He is a true treasure and we know he will make a family very happy someday.

"JAKE"
Fox Hound mix, 5 years, Neutered Male
Mass Humane Society - Partnership & Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Jake is a 5 year old neutered Fox Hound Mix, about 53 pounds, UTD on all shots, Heart Worm Negative, mirco chipped. He is good with dogs but just needs a slower introduction, no cats.

Jake Owen did not have an easy start in life. He was starved and tied up for about 5 years while being used to hunt wild boars. Although his history has left him with emotional scars he is persevering and starting to flourish in his foster home!

He enjoys a quiet, calm environment but he loves going on walks! Lounging around on the couch and eating are some of his favorite activities. He also loves to follow his foster mom around the house, but he still avoids his foster dad. Jake has a fear of men or anyone that in his opinion is scary. Sometimes on walks he gets scared but otherwise he does well on a walk. He is a flight risk so great caution must be used around doors and gates.

Jake is a very fast learner and is completely housebroken! He also is crate trained. Jake has a great hound-mix howl that he uses to express himself! Jake has been known to shred things in his environment because of anxiety. He has started to become more comfortable in his foster home and he no longer is exhibiting that behavior. He will need to have a good kennel when he first arrives at a new home to prevent him from exhibit this behavior.

Jake needs a family that is willing to work with him on his fear and prepared to be very careful as he is a significant flight risk. With time Jake will blossom into an excellent dog and great companion. He has already mastered multiple commands!

Adoption Donation: $450 - includes transportation of Jake.
