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!
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.
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.
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.
