Desi is a two year old, spayed, female hound who is very friendly and exuberantly energetic. Whoever adopts Desi must be willing to accept her high energy, and be willing and able to spend time with her to burn that energy off. Therefore, someone needs to be home most of the day, and be willing to exercise her. Desi could get along with another dog (but not cats) who is not assertive, but it’s likely that Desi would do better being an only dog as long as her humans are willing to work her and work with her. The adopter should also understand that Desi needs comprehensive training to channel the great deal of energy that this otherwise delightfully endearing and loving dog has. Desi is up to date with vaccinations, and house trained.
Milo is an extremely good-looking, 10 year old, neutered, male Terrier mix who was surrendered when his owner moved. Milo is looking for a patient, experienced dog owner to share his senior years with. Milo needs a calm home without children (adult children would be fine,) as they scare him. Milo has lived with another dog but would probably not do well with cats. Milo can be playful up to a point, but will let you know when he wants some alone time. Milo is up to date on all vaccinations, walks well on leash, and is fully housebroken.

Tina is a very sweet 4 year old Dachshund mix. Tina is a bit shy when she meets new people as she did not have the best life. That said, once Tina is comfortable with her surroundings, she is your best friend. Tina would love nothing more than to sleep at your feet while you work, or cuddle on the couch when you watch TV. Tina is a quiet dog overall. Tina is house broken and crate trained. Tina would do best in a home with a fenced in yard and another confident dog to help Tina become more confident herself. Tina is a smart dog and learns very quickly. Tina gets along well with other dogs and is fine with cats but would prefer the company of humans. Tiny rides well in the car and walks well on a leash. Tina is current on vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm tested, and she is spayed.
Harper is a neutered male Australian Shepherd mix. Harper is approximately 13 months old and weighs 30 lbs. Harper just went through a two week board and train program with a professional trainer to gain some confidence. He gets along really well with other dogs that are larger, or close to his size, as he plays hard. Harper needs an experienced owner who is willing to work with him and his insecurities. Hence, we are requiring that he go to a home with a fully fenced in yard and a friend to play with. Typical of the Aussie breed, Harper can be protective of his family.
This precious little girl is around 18 months and weighs 10 lbs. We think Coconut is a Shih Tzu mix but are not certain. Coconut is the ultimate lap dog. She is very sweet and well behaved. Coconut can be timid around lots of dogs and would do better on her own or with just one or two small friends. Since Coconut is a little timid we would prefer an adult family only. Coconut is house trained and does well on a leash. Coconut is current on vaccinations, spayed, and micro-chipped.
This little adorable pup is about 5 months old and weighs 11 pounds. We are guessing she will be around 25 pounds when fully grown. She is a typical puppy, full of energy, loves to run and play with her buddies, and then crashes for a nap. We think Carolina is a Maltese mix but do not know for sure. Thus, we cannot definitively say she is hypoallergenic. She has a pretty golden coat and will need regular grooming. Carolina just received her summer cut. Being that Carolina is a young pup, she needs leash and house training, but is learning very quickly. Carolina will need a home with no small children under the age of 8. Carolina is current on vaccinations, spayed, and micro-chipped.
Scout is a ten year old, neutered, male Chihuahua who is looking for a new home because of his owner's health problems. Scout is very timid so he would do best in a quiet, adult only home
Scout is not at the shelter. Anyone interested in getting more information or adopting Scout should call the Foxboro Animal Hospital, which is handling the adoption. Their number is 508-543-5350, ask for Tara or Cal.
