This fella is such a joy! You would never know his earlier plight when you see him having a blast in his foster home. He LOVES playing with the family's dogs but is also very people-oriented, and seeks out love and attention from everyone he meets.


Holmes was brought into a southern shelter by Animal Control as a stray with a collar embedded in the flesh of his neck, yet he wagged his tail throughout the careful removal. What a great boy – almost like he knew his time for a new life had come! MANY dogs in his situation would never end up leaving a southern shelter, but our rescue friends stepped in and pulled this guy to safety; we are honored to be the ones to find him a new “leash” on life in New England. 


 Not only is he a joy but he has some dashing good looks, don’t you think? He is a two year old lab mix with a gorgeous russet coat and the most expressive amber eyes. He has a good amount of energy so a home with a fenced backyard and kiddos to play with would be a dream come true for Holmes. He loves to chase a tennis ball, but is still working on the return aspect of “fetch” ; 0 )


He is two years old and 47 lbs; he won’t get bigger so he’s the perfect medium size dog. He does well in a crate and his housetraining is coming right along. The dogs in his foster home are smaller and larger than him and he does great with everyone.  We have no cat info at this time.


If you are interested in meeting Ray or any of our cuties, please fill out the adoption application.  


Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog (s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
