Otter is a little pipsqueak of a Doxie mix pup! At 17lbs, she is one year old and full grown. The perfect little size to cuddle and who loves to sit on your lap. Otter is housebroken and easy-going. She loves kids and to be loved on. She will be a great family dog! Located in CT.



I would say that Sally is a special girl, but that wouldn't do her justice.  Sally was being neglected for years and showed up at the shelter with a double ear infection, numerous skin infections and eyes so matted with "gook" that she couldn't see.  Since joining LBDR and a wonderful foster about one month ago, Sally has regained her sight, her ears are being treated for yeast rods, her third skin issue (also yeast) is clearing up and her gorgeous coat is coming back. Sally is a spunky, playful senior who adores other dogs, but would like to be loved on more than anything. She is affectionate and likes to nuzzle any human who gives her a warm look, enjoys walking on the beach and just began to swim! Sally would like to retire in a home where she is loved and cared for the what a dog is supposed to be. She's around 9/10 years young, probably a  spaniel mix, and is around 45lbs. Sally knows commands, is house-broken and lets you know when she needs to go out. She walks beautifully on a leash and entertains herself by tossing toys around the room! You couldn't ask for an easier, more devoted dog! Located in CT.


Piper is a precious 15lb poodle mix whose owner could no longer care for her. She was dumped at the shelter to her dismay. At nine years old, Piper is a loving, playful, affectionate girl who loves sitting on laps and riding in the car. Piper is great with other dogs, gentle with kids and a turn-key dog. Her blood work is clean and she will have a dental cleaning soon! Piper is an ideal companion dog. Located in SC.

Marsha was four years old, dumped at the shelter with her two sisters and pregnant. We had no idea until she reached the safety of the vet in Texas that she was only weeks away from giving birth to NINE puppies! Marsha has been an amazing mama and has welcomed her babies with tons of love. Marsha is a fantastic girl who loves other dogs, adores kids and just wants to be loved. She will be ready to head to her forever home around the end of August. Located in CT. See below for videos of puppies.

Marsha's Puppies!

Born 7/16/19 during a full moon! All were named for beloved dogs who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We believe Marsha to be a Border Collie/Retreiver mix and do not know what the father was.  At 4 months, we can predict the weight. Marsha and her sisters are around 42lbs full grown. They will be available in later August for adoption. If you are home during the day to care for an 8 week old pup,  put in your app today for pre-approvoal! 

Tess was given up by her owner because she would jump the four foot fence to visit the neighbors and their dog. Tess couldn't be more loving or sweet. She is calm, walks beautifully on a leash, wants to be with her person and will make an ideal companion dog or therapy dog. Tess is four years old, 70lbs and is good with kids (but prefers the quieter life), cats, chickens and dogs. This Great Pyrenees deserves the life her owner could not give her and is looking for her ideal home now that she has completed heart worm treatment.  Located in CT.


Olive is one of those special dogs that you see and can't "not take". She was set to go down shortly and her terrified expression is evidence that she felt it. Olive was a shelter favorite and suffered from Black Dog Syndrome which got her on the euth list. We are lucky to have saved her in the eleventh hour. Olive is a great dog who is very affectionate and intelligent. She enjoys chasing squirrels, is food motivated and learns very quickly with verbal and visual commands. She is well socialized with other animals (cats,dogs,birds) and always happy to make new friendsand run around the backyard. Her foster mom trains service dogs and says, "I really think she would be an excellent emotional support or service animal".  Located in CT.

Gilbert is a handsome, sweet, 2/3year old boy. At 60lbs, he appears to be a cattle dog mix but is a calm soul. He loves to play with his friends but happy to lounge. He sits when his leash comes out and is affectionate and loving. He is a favorite everywhere he goes. Gilbert would like kids over five years and has not been cat-tested. Located in NC.

Catherine is an adorable  35lb, one year old girl who is full of spunk and love, despite her rough start in life. Catherine has come so far since leaving the shelter.  She is loved by everyone she meets and was calm and gentle on a recent visit with an adult with special needs. She may be a therapy dog! She loves both dogs and kids and would love a canine sibling to run laps around the yard with.  This is a GREAT dog who is being overlooked because of her breed and color! Catherine is located in VA.



​​Betsy is a gorgeous one year old girl who was dumped at a Texas shelter. She was to be put down but volunteers begged for a rescue because of her sweetness. She is 49lbs, loves other dogs and adores her humans. Her foster family says she is easy-going and polite. Betsy is crate-trained and housebroken. She has a genetic cataract that caused her to lose vision in one eye but the doctor believes the other eye will not have the issue. Betsy heads north August 8th!

​Located in Texas.

Sweetest girl  Sadieis a little piece of heaven. Dumped by her owner because she "didn't like having her hair pulled by the new baby" and growled, we are LUCKY to have taken Sadie into LBDR. Sadie is around 6 years old, a few pounds too heavy  (around 15) and has the softest coat imaginable. She seems to be a Doxie mix and adores sitting on her person's lap and being loved. Sadie is an ideal companion dog who will be a wonderful addition to a home that will love her as much as she loves them.  Located in CT.
