By filling out this application, we are able to help you assess the best possible fit for a new dog in your home. In rescue, our goal is always to find responsible, loving homes. Our mission is to find adopters who realize they are taking on a new family member that requires a lifelong commitment of medical care, food and of course, lots of love and patience.
; Most of our dogs remain down south in foster until they have found their forever homes. Although our listing originates in Westport, CT, in most cases it will not be possible to meet your dog prior to adoption, unless it says "Come Meet Me" in the description.
