Norma: From Blind to Full Vision! This sweet 8 to 10 year old 12 pound Chihuahua Terrier Mix was surrendered in early April to a shelter. While there, the vet found her to be totally blind due to cataracts in both eyes. She was also unspayed with all indications she had had numerous litters of puppies. An ear infection, infected uterus and numerous bad teeth further compromised her comfort.
Fully recovered from her spay, ear infection, and tooth extraction, Norma was determined to be an excellent candidate for cataract surgery, which she underwent successfully on both eyes in June. She went from an inactive hesitant dog who bumped into everything, to a dog who now loves to follow her foster family anywhere and everywhere. Though she is still adjusting to depth perception and hesitant to go up a full flight of stairs, Norma does beautifully with 3 or 4 steps and even runs up and down them when feeling frisky. Her eye surgeon says it takes up to 6 months for a dog to make the adjustment from total blindness to sight. Norma is moving through these various stages like a trooper and it is truly amazing to watch the milestones. She walks now like a Tennessee Walking Horse; head up and her steps high and confident.
She does startle with sudden and unexpected movement or noise close to her so she will do best in a quiet household with a dog-experienced owner who will pick up on her cues. She loves to ride in the car and settles down right away. She is fully housebroken, and loves her designated places in the house to settle down and chew her bone. She loves her crate as well (most of the time the door is left open), and she happily goes in when activity in the house becomes too stimulating. She sleeps soundly through the night in a small dog bed that is on her foster momâs bed.
She barks appropriately and briefly, and only when she hears someone arriving. She comes when called and is focused on staying close to her foster mom, inside and outside. She does not like small children rushing at her or trying to touch her but she does give appropriate signals that she is uncomfortable. Her foster mom has 3 small grandsons (2, 4 and 7) who come in and out of the house daily; they have learned to ignore her and she now follows them around like they were her best friends. She just wants to be where the action is, young or old. Though she is fine on a leash, she prefers a lap to long walks. She is most content curled up on a chair next to her foster mom who works from her computer during the day. Though she will need regular 6 month checkups for her vision and an owner who will be vigilant about her eyes, Norma has been given a clean bill of health in all other ways. Until her next checkup with the opthomologist in mid-September Norma needs drops in each eye 3 times a week. Whether this will be a regular routine will be determined then. Her easygoing nature, sweet demeanor and playful antics will endear her to anyone who wishes to bring her into their heart and lives. She is being fostered in Sudbury, MA and her adoption fee will be $200.

Chase is a fun loving 8 months old, about 45 pounds, He loves toys and is great with other dogs, His former owner's teenaged son brought him home but then wasn't around to care for him so he ended up in a shelter. He sleeps in our bedroom in his own crate. He keeps his crate clean. Chase is very eager to learn commands. He knows how to sit, takes food very gently including watermelon by spoon. Chase enjoys being around people. His adopter needs to know that he has hip dysplasia that at this time the board certified orthopedic specialist said does not require surgery but it may at some point need to be addressed. Records available. This may mean a few years, 10 years or never but an adopter needs to know that surgery may be required in the future. Chase is being fostered in Brockton Mass . His adoption fee is $400.00. If you are interested in Chase please fill out an application at alldogrescue.org.

Hello, my name is Bobby!
I'm a 1.5 year old pitbull/labrador mix. Even though I'm young I'm a big boy now, at 50lbs. I am a very active fella, I enjoy running around outside or laying in the sun the most.
Whether they be human or animal, I get along with everyone. My favorite place is the dog park! Interacting with others and the world around me is what I live for. I love to run and play with my friends. Chase is the best game, and I like fetch too! It's just I am not so good at giving back the stick (I'm working on it) 🙂
Being this young and the mix of breeds that I am, I have a lot of energy to burn. I will need sufficient time outside, in a fenced in yard, at the dog park, on walks/runs with my owner, or with another canine companion every day. I would suit a family with older children best (since I can play intensely sometimes) or with an active couple/individual. I am crate trained and can remain there for many hours, but I would rather be in the company of my family than alone most of the day. My ideal home would be with another dog, if possible!
My fosters have been working on my manners, and they are happy to report that I am doing well and learn quickly. I know all the basics like sit, stay, shake, roll over, etc. I have learned not to counter surf like I used to, and to not jump up to greet humans. I was also very fearful of my crate, but no more. I still have some things to work on (like leash pulling) but I am very food motivated, so I am easy to train.
Overall, I am just a big goofy lover boy. I am very tender and sweet, and after a long day, I will want to snuggle up next to you on the couch if you're there. You can tell I feel comforted when I start to breathe heavier. I also love getting butt scratches whenever I can! Hugs and kisses are ways I like to show affection too. In this life, I just want to have fun and love deeply. So won't you let me become your best friend?
I am currently being fostered in Agawam, MA
My adoption fee is $350

To adopt a dog from us, you must be over the age of 21. To begin the process, first fill out an adoption application. The foster provider will then set up a telephone interview to determine if you and the dog are a good match for each other. The next step is for you to come and visit the dog at the foster home. Then we will do a home visit at your residence before finalizing the adoption. The final step is for you to pick up your new dog from the foster home. Ongoing contact will be maintained with you to see how it’s going and offer training suggestions and behavior advice.
The adoption fee
The adoption fee ranges from $250-$500 for most adult dogs (decided on a case-by-case basis). This is to help defray the costs of spaying, neutering, transportation and other medical expenses. All dogs are spayed or neutered, examined by a vet, given medical shots and treated for any medical condition they may have, prior to adoption. Donations above the adoption fee are always welcome!
Apply for a dog
To apply for one of our dogs, please fill out an Adoption Application. A volunteer will respond to your application within 48 hours. If you have a question about one of our dogs, you can contact us and we’ll be happy to try to answer it.
