Patton *disclaimer: contains difficult images*

posted in: Blog Posts, male | 0

Our vet jokingly and fondly asked us today if we go to great lengths to find the most pitiful dogs to rehab. On that note, please welcome Patton to STBTR.

Patton comes to us as a stray from a local shelter. He is with our very best rehab foster family and we cannot wait to see him bloom, feel better and heal from years of neglect! Stay tuned for updates on his progress.

As always, donations for his care and many others are sincerely appreciated. Our PayPal is Thank you.

(Adopted) Cooper: **Only qualified applicants will be considered**

posted in: Adopted!, male | 0

Meet Cooper. Yes, he has been with us for some time now. He was handed over to us from another rescue earlier this year. After evaluating and having him in 2 different foster homes, the decision was made to put him with a trainer. The awesome trainer was able to breakthrough to Cooper and understand his behavior. He is a large dog in a small dog’s body. He has to work, he has to have a job and he has to know that he is NOT the boss. He has outbursts which can seem like he is attacking but what is happening is he thinks he has to protect himself and his territory. He is very territorial.

His ideal home would consist of a strong disciplined person to be consistent and continue Cooper’s training. An active lifestyle that will include him in outdoor activities. A fenced yard is a necessity for him. No children. He is ok with other dogs but a no go with cats. He gets along with other dogs and that is a plus while trying to expend his energy. HE LOVES THE WATER! Did I mention he loves the water? If you feel like your home is a fit and that you can dedicate your time and energy to Cooper, we encourage you to apply. ONLY QUALIFIED APPLICANTS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

We will do an extensive veterinarian background check, reference check and home visit. We have worked hard to get Cooper where he is now and to understand him, so these qualifications will have to be met to even consider a home for him.

(Adopted) Tessa – BoChi (Boston Terrier Chihuahua mix)

Please give a warm welcome to Tessa, our newest STBTR member.
Tessa comes to us as a rescue transfer, as her foster is moving out of state.

Tessa is a BoChi, estimated to be around 3, fully vetted, crate and house trained. She gets along with other dogs, but we feel she would do best in a kid free home. If you are pre-approved and interested in learning more about this doll, please send us a message on our facebook page. If you have not completed an application, feel free to do so here:

Tugboat found his people

Well how about that!!
Looks like Mr Tugboat has scored big time with his new family. Mom and Dad are already head over heels and he is king of the castle. We heard even Grandma is smitten and guilty of spoiling him rotten.
Special thanks to MCAS and foster mom Yvette.

This guy has a wonderful life ahead!
