If you are interested in Melvin 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 through the rescue, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
Melvin - in Maine!
We have had our eye on Melvin for a while! We are so happy that he is healthy again and ready to come see us and find his forever family.
This guy is awesome!! He loves everyone he meets - people, dogs, everyone! He was a rock star at the vet office and has a whole fan club there. You see, Melvin had to have FHO surgery becaue his hip wouldn't stay in place. And he also had to be treated for heartworm disease. Our partner rescue raised the money and had him taken care of and now he is a happy, healthy boy who loves to run around and play with the other dogs in his foster family. He may always have a slight limp because of the leg length discrepancy but it doesn't slow him down one bit. His foster mom says he knows how to sit, shake, stay, and fetch
Melvin is a 2 year old Shepherd mix. He weighs around 55lbs. Originally he wandered up to a house belonging to a family member of one of the rescuers. It looked like he had been clipped by a car and sure enough, the vet put his hip back into place but it wouldn't stay and poor Melvin was in pain. Not any more!
His foster family in the south has five children and he loves them all! He is fine with dogs and cats as well.
Melvin needs a foster family in order to come north and of course a forever family!
