Alaska is a 3-year-old powder puff Chinese crested mix rescued from a hoarding/back yard breeding situation in CT. He is a darling and affectionate little guy. Coming from years spent in a basement and a crate, he is doing VERY well. He enjoys the company of other dogs, eating good food and napping on comfy pillows. He is being fostered in the home of a WASA volunteer. The smile in the photo is a result of being groomed and feeling so much better! We feel he would do best in a relatively quiet environment with older children.

Penny is a 14 lb Terrier mix who is a chunky monkey. She was found by a good Samaritan on the side of the road with cherry eye and malnourished. Her savior nursed her back to health and she had the eye surgery she needed and headed up North!
She loves to cuddle and to be held but will not hesitate to take a bone from a dog three times her size. Penny is sassy and playful and would make any family happy!
Zachary is almost 6 months old and now has his forever home!
He was rescued by a local woman who couldn’t stand to see him euthanized in a Manhattan shelter and scooped him up to safety.
He was in bad shape and needed a lot of care. Thanks to his fairy dog-mother, Zachary is a playful, happy Shepherd / Border Collie who is great on the leash and crate-trained.
Portia is a loving 8 year old Lab/terrier mix whose owner is dying and can no longer care for her. She has been tossed around from one house to the next and finally a kind woman in Fairfield took her in to give her a warm bed. She can’t speak highly enough about Portia and how loving, sweet and still playful she is. Portia is fine with cats and kids and now has a forever home. She was helped by Little Black Dog Rescue.
Belle couldn’t be a sweeter girl! A petite Flat-Coated Retriever and maybe Border Collie, she loves to cuddle and loves to be loved.
She was tied up for the first part of her life (she is 18 months now) but her silky hair has grown back where it was once bare neck skin. She is shy at first and needs time to trust, but once she does her heart is yours. She loves the park and swimming, chasing birds and is great off-leash. She is a very special girl.
Belle found a home through Little Black Dog Rescue

Oscar (7 years) and Dolce (10 years) are two adorable Papillons that have been adopted. They are very affectionate, sweet and quite handsome little fellows. They are active (love to go on walks), housebroken and you don’t have to ask them twice to “come to the table” for meal time. Because “the boys” are quite bonded they will need to be adopted together.

Lily has found a new home! She has a darling personality and loves to be held. She gets along well with other dogs but has not been tested with cats.

Lionel has been adopted. The sweetest, gentlest dogs don’t always fit in your lap, and we have the dog to prove it! Lionel is a 120-pound mastiff-pit mix that lost his home when his Connecticut family lost theirs. He is very affectionate, and we hope we can find him a home soon as he misses his family tremendously. According to his previous owners, he is good with children and other dogs. He is very housebroken, neutered and up to date on his vet care. We love this big galumph, especially when he drinks water. He sticks his whole face in the bowl and comes out smiling with his face dripping.
Max, formerly at Westport Animal Control, was taken into the WASA foster program after a wonderful Siberian Husky knowledgeable family was found in Weston, CT. He learned manners, ran and exercised and reclaimed his husky joy. Marvelous Max is approximately 6-years-old and is nothing short of divine. He has a wonderful personality and is very friendly and well trained. He is a big strong boy that loves to go for long walks. He also LOVES to be petted. And now, Max has found a home.

Jinger has been adopted! Jinger is a 3-year-old Yorkie that came to the WASA as an owner surrender because of a landlord enforcing a no pet policy. She is friendly and likes to meet new people but is not a dog that constantly wants to be in your lap. Jinger had very little contact with other dogs prior to her foster life but is doing well with her new canine buddies after getting over her initial fear. She does appear to be housebroken and is used to going on walks to do “her business” rather than in a fenced-in yard. She would do best in an adult home or a home with older children that are willing to give her space until she becomes comfortable in her new home.

Summer has been adopted. She is rebounding nicely and enjoying her new-found freedom. She knows her basic commands and was housebroken very quickly. She has displayed no toy or food aggression and loves to chase the tennis ball. She is becoming socialized in regard to meeting new people but still takes a few minutes to warm up to people. However, she quickly accepts you into her circle and wants to follow you everywhere.

Boomer the 2-year-old beagle has been adopted He’s a sweet little fellow that is rebounding nicely after being abandoned in a parking lot in Westport. He is affectionate and is enjoying all the attention he is receiving from staff and volunteers. While you can’t see it in the photo, Boomer has a condition called micro-ophthalmia of his left eye diagnosed at his recent trip to Schulhof Animal Hospital in Westport. He may or may not have any eye tissue on his left side but it will be “cleaned out” and surgically sealed at the time of his neutering surgery which will be funded by Westport Animal Shelter Advocates (WASA). Boomer does appear to get along well with other dogs. Clearly this young fellow hasn’t had the best start in life but he is ready for a new, loving and forever home - and we’re ready to help him find it!
Milo and Molly were adopted! While they are very bonded with each other (and need to be adopted together) they bond very nicely - and quickly - with those that show them attention. They are very affectionate and lovable. Both walk nicely on their leashes and are housebroken. We hope they find their forever home - one filled with comfy pillows and beds for lounging - very soon. Both are spayed/neutered and up to date on their vet care
