Last Update: February 2016
Kristy just turned one year old on January 16th. She is great with other dogs and kids – she used to live with kids from age 2 to 8.
She is a definite “no” with cats. Kristy has learned that walking on a leash leads to good adventures – her previous owner in the south just let her run loose (until she got hit by a car and was surrendered due to medical bills) so she had to learn leash skills. She is housetrained now also (because it’s her first chance to live indoors!).
Kristy loves other dogs, she is active and fun and has so much energy! Her former foster mom tells us, “this little peanut is an absolute love. She’s smart and alert, wicked affectionate and is full of energy and graceful body motion, already a perfect candidate for agility activities. It is definitely her mission to keep nose to ground and track, so squirrels are a favorite. Unfortunately cats fall into the same category”. She will need to stay on leash because of her prey drive and her desire to run and explore.
Kristy was saved by our southern rescue partners after she was hit by a car a couple months ago. Noone ever claimed her and they took care of her and she is a healthy happy girl. She doesn't have much experience walking on a leash so we will get to work on that as soon as we meet her. She had never lived in a house before a few weeks ago but is catching onto house training well.
Kristy’s current foster mama tells us, “she is a great dog. We have enjoyed fostering her so much. She does great with our 2 dogs (both are big) and we took her to my parents over Christmas and she and their dog hit it off as well. She’s getting reliable about coming when she's called. She can be a little timid at first but warms up quickly. She does have a ton of energy so other dogs, a big yard, and/or someone who will walk or run with her would be ideal. And she does love to snuggle. We've let her sleep in our bed a few times and she loves to curl up with you on the couch. Very sweet and affectionate and smart! She learns quickly.”
If you have interest in Kristy or any of our dogs, please fill out the application and we'll work with you to find a great match for your family.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed, they are cared for in our network of wonderful foster homes throughout New England. If you find a dog you'd like to meet, our expectation is that, once approved, you will travel to meet the dog in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
Thank you for considering rescue!
