1 year old male mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix
Ollie is a big sweet boy who loves to lean in for a nice round of affection. He is house broken and walks relatively well on a leash. Ollie is not a big fan of other dogs so he will need to live in a home without other dogs. Ollie loves to play with toys. He is a smart boy who is very treat motivated. When Ollie arrived we noticed his back end was oddly formed. Our vet believes that his growth plates stopped growing, which caused his musculoskeletal issues. This is something that will need to be managed throughout his life. To learn more about what this means for Ollie, call the shelter at 508-435-6938.

1 year 5 month old female german shepherd / mix in foster
Dahlia is as beautiful as her namesake! She is a young energetic dog who is very smart. Dahlia is apprehensive of new people and because of that she is a dog who will make people work for her affection and loyalty! The extra effort is worth it because Dahlia is a sweet sweet dog. There is nothing more heartwarming then having her greet you warmly when she sees you. Dahlia is playful with other dogs and seems to enjoy their company! She loves to chase and to be chased! We are not sure about cats at this time. Due to Dahlia's discomfort with new people she will be happiest in a quiet adult home with not a lot of visitors or activity. If you are interested in learning more about Dahlia please contact Cornelia at cgodfrey@baypathhumane.org.

Roxanne came to us with her house mate Nickie. Having a more outgoing personality, Nickie was adopted quickly. Roxanne is much shier and is looking for a home with another small dog. She is going to need a quiet home with adults who will give her the time and space she needs to become comfortable in her new environment with her new family. Still working on house-training and leash walking, Roxanne is looking forward to a low key environment to enjoy life. Please call the shelter to find out more about this sweet girl or email us at adopt@baypathhumane.org.
7 year 10 month old female retriever, labrador / mix in foster
Jenny is a loyal companion that will replace your alarm clock with lots of wet kisses. She looks forward to her morning walk and will patiently wait for you to return in the evening for another one. She would adore going on wooded hikes with you, as she prefers quiet surroundings. This playful girl is happiest when she's doing zoomies in the yard, and has discovered the joys of playing fetch. Don't let her age fool you. At almost eight years old, Jenny is still lively, active, and nimble. Her exuberance when meeting new people still resembles puppy-like energy, but she responds well to praise and treats (especially if you have cheese!) Jenny knows "sit" and "down," and is both crate and house trained. Jenny finds herself in search of a home because her owners who love her dearly experienced a lifestyle change and are no longer able to provide her with the exercise and attention she had become accustomed to. Jenny is hoping to be the center of attention in her new home, without kids or dogs to share your love with. She is currently in a temporary foster home. Please email Cornelia or Liz for more information about her at cgodfrey@baypathhumane.org or efay@baypathhumane.org.
1 year old female mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Courtesy Post - She is at Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue Well! It's not going to throw itself! Please throw it! Preferably 100 more times! I love to play fetch, especially into the water! I think I could be one of those ‘Dock Dogs' and do it in competitions! Boy would that be fun... Anyway, enough about swimming and fetch, I think you get that picture! I am a fun girl to be around, but I have such a big brain too! I am one smart cookie and would love learning new things! I am from Texas and am excited to start my new life here in New England! I enjoy playing with other dogs and have quite a few friends here! So living with another dog sibling would be great if we are a good match for each other! I think that would be fun! Although I have quite a bit of energy because I am young, I could also be a professional snuggler. So keep that in mind when you're sitting on the couch watching the Patriots without a dog to snuggle with! I'm right here and ready for my forever home! I think I would be a great running buddy, and also would be great in a home with lots of toys! I love to play with squeakies and rope toys! Big family or lots of visitors? That's great! I love meeting new people, especially when they give me food! I walk pretty nicely on a leash too...unless I see a squirrel. Those things are fair game! I do have a heart condition that I am on meds for, so as long as I stay on my meds, then we can still do all the normal things you humans like to do with us dogs! Crazy people! I would love for anyone to come meet me! Please email the Adoption Coordinator at adoption@ygrr.org if interested!
1 year old female mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Courtesy Post - She is at Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue I would love to get to know you! Do you have a lap? Hands? Good! That's all I need because those are my favorite things; a lap to sit on and hands to scratch my back. Prepare yourself though! I like to LEAN! Yes, lean on you like the Leaning Tower of Chloe! So when you come to meet me, be ready for a leaner! I too hail from the great state of Texas! Yankee brought me up here with two other canine buddies to help the rescue in Texas make more room for more hurricane dogs. I like other respectful dogs that enjoy playing! I especially like to lie on my back and kick at them with my paws! That's the best (laziest) type of playing there is! I think some dogs are confused by my play style, but I just like to call it unique and lots of dogs seem to enjoy it once they get the concept! Please email the Adoption Coordinator at adoption@ygrr.org if interested!

5 year 10 month old female coonhound, bluetick / mix in foster
How many dogs do you know who could successfully live in a sedan with two other large dogs, two small dogs, and a cat and remain sweet? Winnie is that dog! Despite all she's been through, she's a loving girl who is happiest when she's by your side. She has fun going on long walks and if you tell her you're going out in the car, she'll happily leap right in to join you. She'll do best in a home with someone who's around a lot. She also likes other dogs but is understandably protective of her own food after all she's been through so she'll do best in a home as the solo dog in a home with teens or adults. Winnie is currently in a temporary foster home, where she's learning lots of new things like sit, down, stay, off, walk, and come. Please contact us at adopt@baypathhumane.org to learn more about this wonderful girl!
2 year 7 month old female mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Do you prefer a tight circle of friends to a crowd? So does Kena. Those special people within Kena's circle know her as a fun, playful, affectionate girl. Once you win her heart, she's the sweetest girl. She'll lean into you for a good long pet or put her head on your lap while you're curled up on the couch. She is apprehensive of strangers in the home, so will be happiest in a peaceful home without a lot of visitors. Kena is a delight to be around. She's happy riding in the car, frolicking in the water, playing with soft toys, just hanging out, and is pretty great on a leash. She enjoys playing with other dogs but would probably prefer to be the only dog in the home. She is super smart and incredibly food motivated which makes her a joy to train. She has already mastered many commands. To learn more about whether you and Kena might be a good fit please email jwakstein@baypathhumane.org Check out her video by clicking on the movie camera icon on the top right corner of her picture.
1 year 4 month old female mixed breed, medium (up to 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Shelter employees have the privilege of loving and caring for lots of dogs. Occasionally there are dogs who because of their unique personalities, unmatched intelligence, and inclination for affection, grab our hearts. Olive is one of those dogs. At four months old she arrived from Jamaica ready for a new home. After spending a few days in a foster home with a volunteer, Olive was adopted by a nice couple with the patience, love, and consistency all young pups need. Olive was taught basic commands, became both crate and house trained, and enjoyed regular walks and playtime in her adoptive home. The last thing on her family's mind was that one year later they would be looking for a new home for Olive. Living with another dog proved to be too overwhelming for her, and to be fair, since the resident dog was there first, it was Olive who needed a new home. Of the many layers to her personality, shyness is definitely one of them. Olive's shy side shows around both unfamiliar people and dogs. Olive is one of those girls who require time to get to know you at her own pace. Living with Olive would be like being in a new relationship. Both of you are on your best behavior, you give each other space, set healthy boundaries, and agree a lot with the other person. In dog terms this translates to, lots of positive reinforcement, not lots of physical interaction, no pressure to meet friends & family, no extra pressure to perform an excess of commands or learn new tricks, keeping things simple, and working toward a trusting relationship. A quiet home, without children or pets, and with someone who is comfortable living with a dog who simply is not a social butterfly is who Olive is looking for. This girl has lots of love to give. Once you have her love, Olive will paw at your leg for attention, dance around, fling her rear into a play bow, look at you with her soft eyes, and shower you with kisses until you are swimming in them! Olive is currently in a foster home. Please email Liz at efay@baypathhumane.org for more information.
