Titan b 2018


Titan c 2018

Titan is a 2 year old, neutered male terrier mix. Titan had a rough start: he was kept outdoors on a short chain, with no shelter, until he was rescued and sent to a foster home. Now he is a sweet, happy, energetic boy, although he still gets stressed during rainy weather. Titan seems to get along with cats and other dogs, but he is not recommended for small children. Titan was surrendered because he was too energetic for his owner. Titan does pull a bit on his leash, and could use more training, but he is a very good dog, and knows commands like “sit.”




The dogs below are NOT AT THE SHELTER.
Shelter volunteers have no information, so please don’t call or email the shelter.
Contact through the email address listed with each dog.


Timmons 1


Timmons is not only beautiful but he is  extremely sweet. Timmons is about 4 months old and weighs 20 pounds.  We suspect he will be 50 pounds, give or take, when full grown. Sadly, Timmons was a 9 week old stray pup when he turned up on someone's front porch.  It was obvious that he had been neglected.  After coming into rescue, Timmons has blossomed.  He is just the sweetest pup who loves life.  Timmons is pretty well house trained and working on his leash manners.  Timmons loves his rescue buddies and playing in the yard with his friends.  We believe Timmons is a lab/hound/terrier mix.  Timmons is neutered, current on all vaccinations as well as micro-chipped. 

Timmons 2

Jerry 2


This sweet little terrier pup was found abandoned Jerry bin a box with 3 siblings. He is just a happy little boy. He is approximately 7 months old and weighs around 10 pounds.  Jerry is a typical puppy.  He gets along well with other dogs and loves to play with toys. Ideally, Jerry would be happiest in a home with another dog.  Jerry has been working hard on leash manners and house training.  Jerry is neutered, current on all vaccinations, micro-chipped, and on heartworm prevention.  Because of his small size we require a home with children over 12 years of age.  

Jerry is NOT AT THE SHELTER, so please don’t call or email there.

Not At the Shelter

Alice needs a new home because she and the other dog in the home are not getting along, and Alice is the victim in the scuffles. The owners think the other dog is unadoptable, so they are keeping her, and trying to find a new home for Alice. Alice has an interesting history. She was originally part of a litter from a Peace Corps volunteer’s dog in Rawanda. In her first month, Alice survived an eye infection, and lost four toes. She is quite a little survivor who loves cuddling with her owners, sleeping in their bed, and playing tug of war. Alice gets along with cats and most dogs. Although Alice is fine with children, she is rather indifferent to them, and she prefers to cuddle with more predictable adults. Alice is a 4 year old Labrador mix who is spayed, house trained, and up to date with vaccinations. Perhaps because of her early history, Alice is anxious and has separation anxiety when left alone for too long. Alice is living in Mansfield.
