Episode 207

This week we go to the Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter where we feature Freedom. He is a 4-5 year old pit mix . He was used as what we believe was a bait dog so he needs some special loving care. While freedom seems to like children and other animals we think he would do best in an adults only home so he can go through decompressing and just time to heal and be in a calm environment. Freedom was at a festival with us this weekend where thousands of people attended with their dogs and he did amazing!!! Freedoms one vice that we see so far is that he guards toys and rawhides. Freedom is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, is micro chipped and heartworm negative. If you are interested in Freedom please call 203-315-4125, or visit branfordanimalshelter.org

This week we go to Dog Star Rescue where we feature Rod Stewart!

No autographs, please! It's hard being a rock star, but Rod Stewart makes it look effortless (and without that rock star attitude!). He is an adult brown Cocker Spaniel weighing around 35 lbs. He is a super friendly, sweet, lovable guy who needs nothing more than a loving forever family to spend the rest of his days with. Sure his rocker fur could use a little coiffing, but one trip to the groomer and this guy will be stage ready once again. Rod Stewart is just about house trained and crate trained but keep in mind that any dog may have an accident or two as they settle into their new homes. He walks well on a leash so feel free to take him on a world tour...or maybe just a neighborhood tour. We are unsure how Rod Stewart would do in a home with cats, children or other dogs as we have not had the opportunity to see him interact with them. This sweet boy deserves a lifetime of love and snuggles, are you the forever family that could give him just that? Are you ready to become this rock stars #1 fan? Interested in adopting Rod Stewart? To get the ball rolling head over to www.dogstarrescue.org and submit your application today. A Dog Star representative will contact you within 24 hours.

Sadie has been great with other dogs once she has a moment to meet them, and she is clicker trained for tricks! A very food motivated lady.
