Just wanted to update you on my FIRST Foster, Scooby. I pulled him at 2:45 pm on Wednesday from the Montgomery County SPCA in the snow! His owner was dying, so her family dropped him off with 2 other dogs. He came with no paperwork, but he is making monumental progress!!!
He is eating his new food (grain free Blue Buffalo), snoozes (or should I say snores) on my couch most of the time. He sleeps in his bed at night (crate was NOT something he is comfortable with at all - would howl endlessly). He is so sweet and gives lots of Boston kisses! He's been a dream come true (so I hear) for a foster. He doesn't like being alone, though, so we are working on that. He barks a lot when I first leave. I have left for 30 minutes at a time and when i get back he is still barking :-(
Since he is not OK with a crate, I "penned" him in my kitchen while I went to family for Thanksgiving dinner. I came home to a CLEAN KITCHEN!!!!! No messes!!!! and he was sleeping in his bed!!!! No barking!!! I felt TERRIBLE leaving him since he is so new, but I have to get him to learn it's OK to be home alone and that I will be coming back.
He goes to the vet on Monday for his wellness check and once we get blood work back, he will be getting neutered. Honestly, I think he could be totally adoptable after his adjustment with me. He's such a sweet boy, has very low energy, but listens pretty good, good on a leash, but with some more training, should be able to know simple commands. (Haven't tested this yet as I wanted to let him settle for a week.)
Enjoy the pictures! He loves getting his ears scratched! Working on getting the video of him playing off my phone. File size issues... UGH!
Sarah Rogers Sarah, thank you so much for taking in this beautiful boy and for loving him when he needed love the most!
He comes from a nice home, where he was treated well, and loved. His
only fault was he was too wild for the smaller children in the house.
Troy just turned on year as of this month. Full of excitement and
energy packed into a 12 (guesstimate) pound body.
Thank you Liz Lewis Fee for the yummy Wellness Treats!!! You are my special "Giving Fairy" because you are always thinking of me and buying me toys and treats and posting nice comments about me. Even though I've been in foster care for awhile waiting to find my forever home you always make me feel special.
The day is here, my wonderful boys Baxter and Byron, or Little B and Big B, are being adopted! I am so happy for them, I honestly didn't think it would happen.
What a bitter sweet day, we truly love them and they became part of our family. They will be missed greatly.
Thank you once again everyone.
You all do amazing selfless hard work. Thankful you let me be a part of it.
Here they are with their Mom and Dad, the Upsalls.
Yes tears flowed, but mostly happy ones.
So thankful for awesome people giving beautiful seniors a chance.
Foster failures Spot, Grimm (fka "Tigger) with sister Dolly are thankful
to NEBTR for rescuing them and blessing them with a warm lap and full
bellies this Thanksgiving, and wish all of you a happy, warm, and
Anyone else have a cozy sac? It's pretty much like a giant
size bean bag chair for people that can be used like a bed or molded
like a couch or seat...whatever you desire...or if you're Sir Winston
and Daisy Mae a giant dog bed! =) love these two so much! ♡
Hope everyone has a great thanksgiving!!! And please if
you're giving your babies any of your thanksgiving meal be sure to make
sure it's doggy friendly!
This is Juneau my new foster. He was left outside tied to a pole in the
cold, his water bowl was frozen. He is safe and warm now. He makes me
laugh. Like a kid on candy. He will make a fantastic forever friend. How
stinkin cute is he?

Since Goldie introduced herself to the pack, I let her come and keep us
company. First thing she did was get her toy out of the crate and bring
to me to throw. She kept it up for about an hour. I was tired but she
wasn't. This little girl would make a wonderful companion for an active
senior. She is so cute. Very vocal too. How could you say no to this

Wow she's fantastic and I couldn't agree more that she would make a wonderful companion for anyone . - Bonnie
A dog arrived the other day, came to the world in the usual way.
If "the other day" was November 26th, 2010, and "the usual way" was through the Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue and Linda Antonelli.
That was then.This is now.
Ciaus was adopted last night ! His name is now Winston :) He is Living
in PA and has a wonderful new mom and dad. He is the only dog so he will
be showered in love and attention which is perfect for him. He always
needs to be the center of attention!
Current fosters: Vegas, Zoey, Omar
Great job Amanda! Thank you for all your love and care and for finding the perfect family for him!
This lucky Penny just got even luckier! She found her furever home today!!!! :)
Congratulations to all! They look so happy! I can already tell they are in love with her and there will be a fight
for who gets to sleep with her first LOL Great job in finding her a
forever loving home.
I picked up Goldie from her owner on Saturday morning. She is a sweet
girl and is so happy to have human attention.
She is a little thing and
very vocal when she wants something. She has taken to my pack (she got
out of the gate, and I found her sleeping with Duke) and just wants to
sleep for now. She did not have a coat or sweater, although came with
her food, bowls, and crate with her bed. Our first stop was to
get her a coat. Of course, it had to be gold to match her name.
keep you posted. Joan, Ontario, NY
She is a sweet-faced little beauty, thanks for helping her.
