Adoption saves lives

If you're interested in learning more about any of these dogs, or know that you are ready to adopt, please complete the Adoption Application. An application must be on file to be considered for adoption.

Puppies have special needs and will only be placed in a home where they can be monitored often (they should not be left alone for more than 4 hours at a time). Please consider your time and space limitations before applying to adopt a puppy.

Unless otherwise noted: All our dogs have been fully vetted and spayed/neutered; all have tested heart worm–negative; all are currently awaiting rescue in Alabama, Georgia, or Tennessee, and, upon adoption approval, FLD/Vermont Dog Rescue will transport them to Vermont.

Additional information about bringing home a rescue can be found in our Guidelines for Adopters of Rescue Dogs.

Pip

***Looking for a temporary foster home for Pip near Addison VT for the Winter***

Has been working with a trainer to address reactivity toward bicyclists, motorcycles, and other dogs when on leash (whining, pulling); has made immense progress and is incredibly responsive and focused with trainer
Will need someone who is committed to following the trainer’s instructions and methods to ensure continued behavior modification, which should eventually result in reactivity eradication

Rescued off death row - he deserves a happily ever after!
