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.

2 year old female golden retriever mix in foster
*** Shila is not at Baypath Humane - This is a Courtesy Post for Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue! *** Boy oh boy was this a trip! I have come a long way and still have some to go, but I hope this all ends up with me in a great home! I am a very peculiar girl, but not in a bad way. I think I just haven’t experienced a lot of the things you American people do with your dogs!? I would love to have a home as the only dog. I wouldn’t say I am completely against meeting other dogs, but I need more time and practice before I can feel completely comfortable. So living with one would probably be way too much. I would love to work on this in my new home and get better and better at it. I think my inexperience hinders me here. I would love to get attention all day long. I’m not super into toys, although I am learning they can be fun. Can I tell you a secret?? I think my favorite thing to play with is YOU! That’s right! I love it when my human friends jog around, playbow to me, get me all excited and run around some more. It is the most fun game I’ve ever played! I get the zoomies and start running around and will playbow back at you and then dodge and juke you out of your shoes! I do have some sensitivities. The first being strangers. If you let me take the time to get to know you then I am much more comfortable than if you rush me. The second sensitivity is my ears. When I arrived at Yankee from Turkey, I had a pretty bad ear infection on top of a wounded and bloody ear. So I can be a little head shy and really am not sure about people touching my ears until I am comfortable with you. Then the last sensitivity is my skin. I have sensitive skin so keeping a consistent diet is best and also taking my daily meds for any itching is helping a lot! I’m hoping that you will find me cute and fun even though it means you have to play back! It is a fun game, I promise! *** If you are interested in finding out more about Shila please email adoption@ygrr.org ***
10 month old male mixed breed in foster
Dougal is an absolute sweetheart of a dog who made the trip up from Louisiana. Dougal is not quite a year old yet, but his relatively laid back demeanor would make you think he's older than that! He's an old soul, but one that loves to romp around and play. He gets along well with his buddy Chester, which would lead us to believe he would be fine living with another dog, but it always depends on the meet. He is definitely overwhelmed with his new surroundings and having met so many new people so he's going to need a quiet, mature household to be most comfortable. ** Dougal is a lucky boy currently hanging out in a temporary foster home, so please email adopt@baypathhumane.org to find out more!
11 month old male mixed breed
Chester is a tall drink of southern water who made the long trip up from Louisiana to find his forever home. Everyone whose met Chester has described him as one big goober! He is young, energetic, and loves to give and get affection. He'll play with toys until he drops, especially the stuffy ones. He loves to go for walks in the woods and chase after tennis balls. Chester will benefit greatly from training classes - we can tell he's a smart boy, and training can help teach you appropriate ways to keep his brain busy and happy! Chester seems to get along well with other playful dogs, but it always depends on how the meet goes. Chester would do best in a mature home. Come meet him today!
3 year 1 month old female mixed in foster
Baypath has been waiting for Cheyenne to come north for awhile now. Cheyenne came to us from Louisiana where she successfully completed the long treatment for heartworm. The pictures do not do Cheyenne justice, because she is probably one of the cutest dogs ever!! Cheyenne is a little overwhelmed with her new environment but she warms relatively quickly. We think Cheyenne might be okay living with cats too! She is currently hanging out in a foster home, so please email adopt@baypathhumane.org for more information.
7 month old female mixed breed
Ashley made the long transport up from South Carolina and is now ready to find a forever home with patience, love, and understanding towards her nerves! The drive was long but so worth it for this beauty to find her people. Ashley is wiggly and playful, but understandably fearful in new surroundings with new experiences. If you have yummy cheese or chicken to treat her with, she's your girl! Ashley would do best in an adult home, preferably with shy dog experience. We think she may gain confidence and benefit from having another confident dog in the household pending a meet. She absolutely loves to run around with toys and walks so well on a leash. She has even mastered "sit", and we know she's more than ready to keep learning! Please call or come meet her today!

6 month old male mixed breed in foster
Ruston came to us from...you guessed it, Louisiana! Ruston is a beautiful puppy who has lived a very sheltered life so far. This means that the world is a strange and scary place. He is going to need a quiet home alongside another dog and mature owners who have had dog experience, ideally shy dog experience. Another dog is necessary to show him the ropes of living in a home and feeling comfortable with people. As a 5 month old pup, Ruston can only be left alone for 4 hours at a time. Are you and your dog a good match for Ruston? Ruston is currently spending time out of the shelter in a temporary foster home, so please email adopt@baypathhumane.org to find out more about his application process!
10 year 6 month old male mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Meet Spencer -- or Mr. Wiggle Butt as his foster family affectionately calls him! He's a social butterfly who's excited to greet new people as friends. This happy boy loves nothing better than to snuggle under the covers with his humans. Rub his super soft belly and he'll be your best pal! Fetch is Spencer's favorite pastime and he'll leap in the air to catch a ball or a toy. He enjoys going out on hikes in the woods, and then curling up on his bed afterwards with a nice stuffy toy. Spencer is a smart cookie is already knows how to sit and give paw, walks politely on a leash, is house trained, and is a dream in the car. His foster parents shared that he's a very good boy who loves to chill out on the sofa after a walk and is very good in the house and out. Spencer is looking for an adult home where he can be your one-and-only pet. Because Spencer has been bounced around a lot in his life, he does take time to acclimate to his new home, so he’ll need a patient, loving adopter who can spend some extra time with him in the early weeks when he’s transitioning to a new home to help him get comfortable. Our staff can provide many resources to help set you up for success. He just needs someone who understands that Spencer will be a delight to have in your home once he settles in. ** Spencer is hanging out in a temporary foster home, so please contact us at jlorusso@baypathhumane.org for more info about this big love and his application process!
12 year old female mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Look at this face! Gretta is a super friendly girl who is sure to win your heart! She loves to be by your side, going out for a long walk or chilling out on the couch. She's happiest riding in the car, soaking up the sun in the yard, or finding a cozy spot in the house to hang out. Her foster mom says Gretta has a special way with people. "My kids say Gretta has human eyes. Her eyes tell you stories of her life, she has been there done that, she has seen a lot yet she still opens to love." You could never guess her age from all the pep in her step. She has lots of energy to take out on squeaky toys and rope toys! This polite lovebug is housetrained, wonderful in the house, and knows several commands (stop, no, wait, sit, down, stay). She'll do best in a home free of cats and dogs since she gets a little too excited when she sees them. ** Gretta is currently in a temporary foster home, so please email adopt@baypathhumane.org to find out more about this delightful girl's application process!
1 year 8 month old female mixed breed, medium (up to 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Kourtney is a very special young girl who has come all the way from Jamaica to find her forever home. She brings a sweet & compassionate energy to her foster home where she has made friends over the last year. Becoming accustomed to life not on the streets has been hard for Kourtney, but she is making progress every day. A life of routine & patience is what Kourtney is looking for in her forever family. She will do best in a positive minded home with older children (teens) & a fenced in back yard to chase tennis balls in the sunshine. Kourtney's foster family says she establishes great companionship with other confident dogs which help her open up once she feels comfortable. Letting Kourtney just be a dog & not forcing her to be anything more than what she is safe with is the key to winning her trust. Kourtney is a treat & food driven hound. High value treats seem to give her enough encouragement to approach & possibly even paw for attention. She is smart, playful & entertaining to have around the house especially if you already have a dog who needs some friendship. Kourtney will attach to their hip & pick up on the daily life activities quickly. To help Kourtney with a successful transition to her home, she will require a fenced yard (she is not quite ready for walking on a leash with a new family yet), and another dog to help her continue to gain confidence. Kourtney is currently in a foster home, if you are interested in learning more about this special gal, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
