At Baypath, we do our best to collect both behavior and medical histories on our animals, as well as do our own evaluations and observations. We gather as much information as we can to suggest what we believe to be the ideal situation for each animal. We do this in the interest of the animal's quality of life as well as to assist our potential adopters. As always, safety is of the utmost importance in our decision making process.

We are always more than happy to discuss our animals with you and highly encourage you to call or email the shelter at info@baypathhumane.org if you have any questions or want more information regarding any of our animals.

Meet Kastanka! This sweet puppy is going to be a big dog, but is looking for a specific home environment. She is sweet and enjoys spending time with people. She is an active puppy and will need an adopter that can keep him busy and is ready to go to training. Kastanka has shown resource guarding behaviors, so we are looking for a dog experienced owner for her. She will need to go to a home who is used to working with similar breeds and/or behaviors with only adults at home.

4 year old female mixed breed in foster
Calling all Chihuahua lovers, we know you’re out there! While Grace likely isn’t a purebred Chi, she embodies the Chi way: smart, snuggly, and loves “her person”. We’ve learned a lot about Grace while in her foster home that we’d like to share with you. While she hasn’t really learned the joys of playing with toys YET, she loves her walks! She is a total lap dog and can’t help but settle herself in as soon as “her people” are sitting on the couch. Let the cuddle fest begin! While she has mastered walking on a leash, she says “no thanks” to meeting people and dogs while out and about on her walks (it’s just too overwhelming for her at this time). For these reasons, she’ll need a quieter neighborhood or a solid fenced yard to exercise in while she works on learning new behaviors when she sees people and dogs on a leash (this will take time, but will be worth it!). Grace has made some great strides with house-training and working on spending time in a comfy crate when her people are gone. We think Grace would do fine with another canine sibling or two (pending meet) or could be ok as a solo pup. She’d prefer a quiet house with only one or two human members, particularly humans that are comfortable helping a dog who hasn’t had many new experiences in life. If you have had experience helping a dog learn that this world isn’t so scary through positive experiences and going at her pace, please email us foster@baypathhumane.org for more information on Grace.

Roxanne is about 5 months old and 18lbs. She would greatly benefit from a fenced in yard. Roxanne is looking for an adult only home. She gets along with other dogs, and she loves to play!

1 year 1 month old male husky mix in foster
**Koda is a courtesy posting for ARL Brewster and is not available through Baypath. If you are interested in him, please call 617-426-9170 x305** Meet Koda! Koda will need a fenced yard, another doggy playmate, and a very savvy adopter who can help him adjust to a New England lifestyle! Please read on if that describes your home. Koda is a year old husky mix! Koda came to us after growing up down south, where the normal way of life for a dog is very different. The good stuff: Koda is playful and fun and could spend hours running after a ball - or even better, a jolly ball! He absolutely loves water! Koda has been known to play with his water bowl, and frolic through puddles. He'll run laps in the yard just for the joy of it. His favorite thing is rough and tumble play time with a canine friend. While Koda enjoys his time outside (where he likely spent a lot of his time living down south), he struggles to relax indoors. This can cause him anxiety in a home setting. Koda will require a lot of physical and mental stimulation as well as help building a positive association with being indoors. Because Koda lacks experience with being indoors for an extended amount of time and he struggles with manners and basic skills we take for granted in our daily lives with our pups, like being able to lay down and take a nap while we sit down to watch a movie. Indoors, Koda's stress presents itself through pacing, destroying items, barking for attention, and jumping on or mouthing his human friends nearby. He has a very difficult time settling on his own. A consistent and predictable daily routine will be important for Koda, and will likely include use of a crate and other barriers to restrict his space throughout the house until he begins to acclimate positively. We are hopeful that a young, tolerant, friendly, confident canine companion may help him adjust. It will need to be the perfect match as Koda's play style can be too intense for most dogs to put up with and enjoy. Adopting Koda will require multiple visits in order to set adopters up for the best success and to make the best match. These visits will include family meets, multiple meets with your dog so they can start to build a relationship, and a behavior consult with our behavior team. He can share his home with teens and adults. He can share his home with teens and adults. Koda is very strong on leash, especially when he sees something he wants to chase. No cats or little critters for this boy. Koda's adoption fee is $475. *Adoptions are currently by appointment only. Please call 617-426-9170 x305 if you are interested in Koda*
2 year 3 month old male mixed breed in foster
Please email adopt@baypathhumane.org for more information about Chester during our COVID adoption process! Oh, handsome Chester! Months of diligence, consistency, and a caring foster home have allowed him to make significant strides in reaching his best potential as a canine companion. He is truly a diamond under a rough coat. Chester is a mixed breed, weighing approximately 65lbs and is around 2 years old. He is goofy, playful, and inherently loyal. As a strapping young lad, he thrives on being active with moderate exercise and being kept busy. He'll do best having a secure, fenced-in yard to be his domain to romp around in without the distractions of passerby's. Pending a proper introduction, he may enjoy living alongside another dog. Since coming to our shelter in need of support, he has made significant progress in learning about how to be appropriate and polite when introduced to new people. He's also getting better at feeling settled and confident when left alone, and has nearly mastered good house manners (including house-training)! While this is a continuing journey for Chester, he is a loyal goofy boy who keeps you smiling. If you have a patient, dog-experienced family looking for a notably affectionate and loyal dog, we can help support your family and Chester. Since he sometimes has issues sharing possessions, we are recommending a home with adults or older teens. If you’d like to help Chester live the good life and be the companion he truly loves to be please inquire at foster@baypathhumane.org. We can also provide you more information about our Covid 19 adoption process!
Helpful hint: Please bring copies of your vet records if you're considering adopting. This will help speed up your adoption process.
Note: Animals in foster are living in temporary foster homes and are available for adoption. Please contact us at adopt@baypathhumane.org or 508-435-6938 to learn more about a dog or cat who's in foster. Thanks!
