Through the diligent efforts of our wonderful foster, the team at Tufts Veterinary Hospital and the Northern Rhode Island Animal Hospital, our 3 year old Robby is a new man. Diligent adherence to a medicated bathing regimen and use of medicated sprays as well as strictly restricting Robby’s diet to a specific prescription dog food has helped greatly to control his skin issues. However, he must be carefully monitored and still needs the attention of a dermatologist to address flare-ups from ichthyosis and allergies.

Robby is ready and needing a forever home. His adopter would need to continue the attention to Robby's skin issues that NEESSR initiated. Robby is a shy boy, but also extremely active. We are only considering homes with securely fenced large yards. Another dog in the home to keep him company and to play with would be a bonus. Somewhere out there we know there is a home that Robby would do well in, is it yours?

Dembe is a two year old male fieldy-very sweet and loving. Last year he had a full hip replacement funded by our rescue at Tufts on the left side with complete success. He is having some discomfort in his left knee and right hip which is being treated with medication. He would make a wonderful companion for someone who is home and has time for him--he needs basic obedience training. Because of his his replacement, his activity level will always be moderate (not high). He is a big strong boy-64 pounds and the vet would like to see him lose about 10 pounds to make it easier on his joints. We are looking for a home that will work with him and help him become the wonderful companion he can be.

This is Mason. He’s an 8 year old liver/white neutered male who’s going to need to find a quiet home without children or other pets to live in. Mason has had his right CCL (doggie equivalent of an ACL) repaired and has occasional issues with his left. Add in some arthritis, and once he’s settled down to rest he doesn’t like to be disturbed.

This is Emoji, one high energy 9 month old neutered male Springer/Brittany mix from a hunting type breeder. Emoji needs lots of exercise and consistent training/direction to improve his manners, as he can be very pushy and aggressive in his attempts to get what he wants, but he’s also very smart and food motivated so re-training him should work. He will be a project but the end result should be very rewarding. Emoji is currently fostered with intent to adopt in Bradford, MA.

Here’s Mason #2, a 4.5 year old neutered male who’s had a rough time lately. Although he’s a very nice boy with good manners, Mason was re-homed by his original owners when they didn’t have the resources to properly care for him. He found himself placed in a house with cats and that didn’t work well for the cat preferring owners. Next he was off to a home with an aggressive dog, well you can guess how that went. His fourth home just didn’t work for both of the people there and now Mason finds himself in foster care with NEESSR. He’s currently being fostered with intent to adopt so we can hopefully cut out yet another move for the little man.

Sadie is a 2.5 year old liver and white springer who recently arrived at her NEESSR foster home. She does have a history of being quite reactive so her foster family will be dedicating a lot of time to working with her and addressing this issue. We will update as we know more about her and also announce when she'll be available for adoption.

09/06 - 2016 update. Sadie is pretty good at general obedience skills. She is a strong dog with an excitable personality so we use a Easy Walker type harness when walking her. She can still pull if not reminded to go easy. She will always be considered reactive dog more so in situations involving new people and dogs entering her space. She is much better once she is introduced to others in a slow positive manner. She is a far cry from the dog that came to us a year ago yet she will require a special kind of person to continue her work. Although she may have a much lower tolerance level to situations we take for granted like narrow closed in spaces and strange people in her space, Sadie is exceptionally good at communicating her discomfort. Sadie will need a special person or couple that will not feel the need to push her tolerance level or dominate her, Positive reinforcement works very well in her training.and assisting in desensitizing her to with meeting new people.

I need to mention that the family will need to be able and willing to have a few meet and greets with Sadie and me in order to be sure they can help her transition well. This would mean the family would have to reside fairly close to East Bridgewater MA. Sadie also needs to live in an adult only home.

Hi my name is Houdini or Hootie.
I love to be by your side or at your feet while you sit and relax
I get along with other dogs and cats. My foster family has two cats. They leave me alone and I do the same.
My foster brother is 8 and he and I get along great.
I love going for car rides and I'm working on my walking skills. I am a big guy and forget how much I can pull without trying

Houdini is a wonderful, 9.5 year young springer that craves attention and loves to be by your side. He is a big boy at 65 lbs. He is very good traveling in the car and is great with other dogs and gets along with cats. He will bark at anyone coming to the door, but is friendly and calms down after a short time. He does have some separation anxiety and will bark and whine when you leave, but he will calm down after a bit. He can be left alone and is not destructive. Hootie is playful and likes to play tug and play with toys. He is not great on a leash but we are working on that, so he should wear a harness when out for better control of him. Because of his size he may not be good with small children.

Here’s our latest girl on the scene – 9 1/2 year old Maggie Moo! She’s a very nice friendly girl that gets along with other dogs but would prefer a home where she gets all the attention. It’s unknown if she gets along with cats. Maggie Moo is a good girl who knows sit, stay, and down. She will counter surf but if caught will get down nicely. Maggie is good riding in a car and doesn’t mind traveling. She does have some arthritis in her hips so young children playing with her would not be a good idea. She’s looking for a couch to join someone on. Is it you?

Maggie Moo is just about ready to be released onto the NEESSR available dogs list. She’s had a full vetting and all her lumps, bumps, aches, and pains checked and reviewed. At this time she does have some age related arthritis in her hips and is starting a supplement to help keep it from getting worse. December 22 she will be going back to the vet for a dental cleaning and possible tooth extraction.
