Minnie Pearl

Sweet senior Minnie Pearl (known as Tai Tai by foster mama) has been diagnosed with a high grade hemangiopericytoma (a malignant tumor). The vet was unable to remove all the bad stuff and believes that it has spread.

She will remain with her foster mama and her foster sibs, Dailola, where she will be loved unconditionally, kept safe, warm and cozy with every day filled with hugs and kisses until she gives foster mama a sign that it’s time.

Currently she seems happy and pain free. Paws crossed she gets to enjoy some upcoming warm weather this spring and summer.  NS 2117

Colby Boy

This adorable boy is a little over 6 mo  old.  He is a gorgeous blue merle. He is great with other dogs . Like most puppies, Colby Boy wants to play all the time! He is high energy but with direction and exercise does settle down.  He likes his people a lot and follows you most places.  He does like to jump up on people a lot so will need some training in that area.
He is is let out on a regular schedule to avoid accidents.   He is approx 34 lbs.  Neutered and up to date on all shots..
He is good with cats; he likes to chase but is playful. He is great with all dogs and gets put in his place if he's too annoying. 

Colby Boy is ok on a leash but needs more work. He will turn on a dime for food!
If left unattended he will counter surf but knows it is wrong. He only does it at feeding time. He has some pray drive but is not aggressive. He shows no resourse guarding of toys or food.

He would do best in a active home with children over 12 who can give him the love and training to be a super boy.

Colby Boy is fostered in South Windsor, CT.                      Apply here for him.  NSXXXX
