Doug The Pug (mix) is a three year old ball of fun. He was used as a bait dog as a tiny puppy and even had hip surgery from an injury during a fight. He was sent to a kill shelter and later"rescued" by a local man who left him alone in a room all day while at work. A neighbor began caring for Doug (who loved playing with her dog) during the day when his owner told her that he was going to dump him at the shelter since he didn't have time for him. The owner never returned for Doug and she reached out for help as she could not afford to have two dogs. LBDR saw her post and stepped in. Doug holds no resentment or anger toward any human, in fact, his past has only made him crave human interaction and affection even more. He gives "full body hugs" and likes to have part of his little 26lb body touching his human when he sleeps. He is a champion napper and loves to play with other dogs. This little guy will make a great family pup and looks forward to living the life he deserves.
Sammy is an 8lb little sweetheart of a dog! At 6 years old, Sammy was dumped by her second owner through no fault of her own. Sammy loves to cuddle and sit in yout lap while you work. She is also independant and comfortable anywhere in the house. She is well-trained and knows commands as well as "dance". Sammy seems to love smaller male dogs and would be an ideal playmate. She loves to go for walks and also enjoys a good solid nap on the couch. She is a GREAT dog who would like a home with kids over 5.
Billie traveled from Korea, where she was being farmed for humans to consume. As we eat cow and pig, some Asian countries eat dog (see Yulin Festival for practices in China). A rescue in California contacted me to see if I could help and because of a wonderful foster here in CT, we were able to rescue two little girls. Billie is a about 6 months, 10lbs, sprite and feisty! Billie loves kids and other dogs and is fine with cats. She is a quick learner, trained on wee wee pads and learning to pee outdoors, and has puppy energy. She would like kids over 6 and would be happy to follow another dog around. She is a pip-squeak and super-sweet.
Hope is a petite husky mix at only 5 months and 33lbs who is crate-trained and housebroken. She was recued from a boarding pen made of wood and because she wanted to see out and connect with humans so badly, she chewed a hole in the bottom of the door. The world is new to Hope and she is unsure at first but acclimating well. She loves other dogs and would do well with a sibling to follow around. She is very affectionate and loving and will have this "dog life" down in no time!
Lexi traveled from Korea, where she was being farmed for humans to consume. As we eat cow and pig, some Asian countries eat dog (see Yulin Festival for practices in China). A rescue in California contacted me to see if I could help and because of a wonderful foster here in CT, we were able to rescue two little girls. Lexi is around 2 years old, mellow and likely a Spitz mix. She is loyal and attaches to her person. She is an ideal compaion dog for someone who has a quiet life and can give her the love she deserves. Lexi enjoys chasing a squirrel in the yard but is a low energy dog who prefers the couch. She will be a great walking buddy and needs a quiet home where she can relax.
Sadieis a special LBDR dog because she was adopted to one of our foster mom's a few years ago. Due to a move to another continent where there are lengthy quarentine protocols, we have decided that finding a new home for this 50lb, 6 year old girl is best for her well-being. Sadie loves everyone and will settle in well at any home. She loves attention, is fine with other dogs except on the rare occasion. Sadie is cat-tested, kid-tested and would love to be a true companion dog who can travel, walk and sleep with her human. She is a special lady and anyone would be lucky to have her!
Louie is a sturdy little 25lb terrier mix with a wirey coat, short legs and a penchant for fun! He loves orther dogs and would make a great second dog as the follower. Louie is FANTASTIC with children, gentle and sweet. Louie is only one year old and spent his former life in an apartment with an older dog who was not nice to him. His owner handed him over to a kind tenant who could hear Louie cry. Louie needs a leader who will teach him how to be confident and live the life a dog is supposed to. He is a gentle little guy and will win your heart quickly!
Chip is a very handsome 4/5 year old lab mix who was scared of the gunshots his owner produced while duck-hunting. Chip is a quiet guy (we haven't heard him bark) who is settling well into life inside a home. He is shy at first but non-reactive and will put his chin on your arm or leg to let you know he is comfortable. Chip is an IDEAL companion dog for an older adotper who likes to take walks and appreciates a calm dog. Chip is about 60lbs, great with other dogs and loves to play, ignores cats and would like a quieter home to be spoiled as he should be.
Charleigh was likely hit by a car and left for dead. A kind woman spotted Charleigh dragging herself through her yard and scooped her up. A foster was found nearby in Louisiana and she cared for Charleigh until her arrival in CT. Charleigh has seen the neurologist, chiropractor and has a custom cart on order. We have set up a program for Charliegh to work with a chiropractor who has made it possible for 110 dogs to regain their ability to walk. Charleigh will receive adjustments, laser therapy as well as hydrotherapy to give her every chance to walk again. For now, Charleigh is happily riding around town on her wheels and is on a potty schedule. She is so playful that she will need an active owner and would be great with another dog. Her legs are constantly moving more and more each day and we are confident that progress will be made!Charleigh is about one year old and only 21lbs of fluff. She wins everyone over!
