COSMO - 10 month old border collie\akita mix needs a new home. He is a great pup, very calm and very loving. He's house trained and knows a couple common commands. He's very sweet. I live in an apartment and he deserves a better life then I can give him right now. He loves to run and play but at the end of the day hes the biggest cuddlebug with the softest fur. 

If you are interested in meeting Cosmo please email:

PANDORA is a 1 year old spitfire! We estimate she will be turning 2 some time January-ish. She has come a long way in learning the rules to life since being transferred to NEBCR via another New England rescue that did not feel they had the ability to meet her high energy needs (she is, for lack of a better term, "a lot of dog"). Since then Pandora has shown how much she loves to learn and use her brain, and is very toy and food motivated. This girl has lots of drive and has been exploring dog sports in her foster home. Originally quite leash reactive when she saw other dogs, she has learned to remember her manners just fine when she has a job to do. The world truly disappears when she is doing her job. Pandora can take some time to warm up to new people, especially scary vets that have evil intentions. For this reason she will need a very special home, but will happily reward them in hours of cuddling and laughing at her antics at the end of the day.

Pandora is good with other dogs and cats, but would do best in a home without children and with a fence for her squirrel obsessive tendencies.

RAYDEN is a two-year-old border collie. He lost his back-right leg due to a car accident but you would never know it. He is an active playful pup still. He might be on meds for the rest of his life due to sensitivity at the limb of the missing leg. The meds will help him to keep any arthritis formation at bay. The meds are not costly so please do't let this keep you from adopting him. He runs and plays with all my dogs, so needing meds doesn't not interfere with his playing, running or hiking every day. His favorite past time is snuggling on the couch or riding in the car to go hiking. He does tend to be possessive of his toys sometimes, so his new family will have to help him work through this issue. Rayden can be shy with new people but will warm up to them really quickly. He can be a bit mouthy when he gets excited. Because of this I would suggest he be placed in a home with older dog-savvy children. He would do best as an only dog or in a home that has other dogs that like to play. He does chase cats that run, so a home with cats or small dogs is not recommended. He does alert bark with noises so he would not be good in an apartment. He is a great dog that knows all his basic obedience commands and walks good on a harness and leash.

THEO is perfect for someone with an active lifestyle who adores the great outdoors and a commitment to their loving pup! He is an extremely smart 8 year old boy who would prefer to meet his potential adopter a few times before going home. Theo is an affectionate boy, but on his own terms. Theo is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations.

For more information on Theo, please reach out to

Please be aware that you need to check people out before handing over your dog to someone you do not know. There are unscrupulous people who appear to be good adopters so be cautious and check references, especially asking for a neighbor's phone number so you can be sure that the information about them is accurate.

We recommend a TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP agreement so that you can have some written agreement about your dog's future situation in the event it does not work out for the person to keep the dog. It is important to insure that your dog does not eventually land in a shelter where he or she could be euthanized. Instead, the person agrees in writing to notify you so that you can then step in and take an appropriate course of action.
