Shy now answers to Shep, his new name.  We are enjoying his affection and he is no longer Shy.

He howls like a wolf when he hears sirens passing by our home. He has gained weight and has a great appetite. He is a frequent barker at chipmunks & squirrels and chases them whenever we take his morning and afternoon walks.

My wife, children, & grandchildren are very eager to play with him and enjoy his presence.

Call him ‘Dr Jones’! Indie joined our pack of two dogs (5-yr-old female & 14-yr-old male) at the end of May. We’ve spent a lot of time training & socializing him and it’s really paid off. He walks great on a leash, loves to meet new people and plays non-stop with our other dogs.

His striking brindle coat gets compliments everywhere we go and he really seems to bask in the attention. Thanks NEAS for another wonderful addition to our pack!

We adopted Mia from NEAS on 6/17/2017. She immediately became a part of our family! The vet believes she is around 1.5 years old and is a Weimaraner mix. She loves to give kisses and wants everyone she meets to give her a belly rub. One of her favorite things to do is snuggle up on the couch and fall asleep with us (as seen in the picture). She also has her fair share of energy and loves to run around our backyard playing fetch on her runner. Mia was very cautious at first when we brought her home and was afraid of new noises, but is very comfortable now. My husband and I love her to pieces!

My husband and I adopted Roger (originally David) on July 1st and we can’t imagine life without him. He stole our hearts as soon as he bounded into the playroom at the shelter and every day we love him more. He is very smart and outgoing and has already mastered “sit” and going up and down the stairs. He plays hard and then loves to snuggle hard afterwards. He gets along with his 7 year old canine Uncle Ted (also an NEAS rescue) and is curious about all new people and places. My husband and I bought our house about a month ago and now, having Roger, our new house really feels like a home. Thank you so much for rescuing him and giving us a beloved new family member.

We adopted Maddison (Catahoula mix) at 14 weeks old after losing our Australian Shepard of 15 years. She has been the perfect pooch. She loves to kiss and be near you. She never chewed or even tried to destroy anything in the house. She is so well behaved.

After a few years we decided to get a playmate for her. 3 years later at 10 weeks old we adopted Skylar (Lab, Border Collie, Pit mix) as a playmate for us and Maddison. Skylar is a little ball of muscle with energy to spare. She is the fastest dog at the dog park and loves to be chased. I love both our dogs and they love us and all they meet. They bring joy and smiles to all. We love them as family. They are our little love bugs.

We adopted Mya, formerly known as Aurora, on May 19, 2017. That day is so special to us! She has adapted better than we could have ever imagined, and her adventurous, loving, and humorous personality has done nothing but bring us joy. She has made all training easy on us, and what a smart girl she is. She is always the center of attention wherever she goes and she knows it! She can turn anyone’s bad day into a good one and we are forever thankful to have had such a special puppy come into our lives. Thank you NEAS for giving us the absolute love of our lives!

We adopted Georgia (formerly Wanda) a little over three weeks now. She quickly dug her way into our hearts! She is eager to learn. She’s already mastered sit, lie down, and shake! We are working on roll over. House training is coming slowly, but she already likes her crate.

We adopted Babka (formerly Coffee/Skye) a few weeks ago back in June. We were told he was originally brought to the Northeast Animal Shelter as a kitten from Georgia, was adopted, but then returned a few months later.

We renamed him Babka because he’s a cat with a bobtail (Bob-Ca) and after a quote from “The Dinner Party” episode of one of our favorite shows, Seinfeld.

We feel so lucky to have found Babka – he is the perfect addition to our family! We were looking for a playmate for our current 7 year old cat, Daphne, and within days, they were wrestling and playing together.

Babka has lots of energy, but he loves being held and purrs constantly – he is the sweetest cat! Thank you Northeast Animal Shelter!

We adopted Reeses (formerly Roxy) in May and she is such a happy pup. She’s still very shy and easily frightened by loud noises but we are so proud of her progress! She has the most adorable spotted tongue, and the cutest pair of ears that flop when she runs.

Reeses is doing really well on house-training, especially in an apartment setting. We take her to puppy play time at Petco and she is the most excited puppy there. We’ve taken her to the beach and although hesitant, has gotten in the water a few times.

She likes to snuggle up and sleep, drooling with her tongue sticking out. She is so curious, and recently discovered the ball and how it rolls. We also discovered that she loves to chase the laser pointer around the apartment.

She loves to get attention and rolls over to let you know to rub her belly. Reeses is so sweet, we don’t really know what she is thinking, but she gazes out the window with her dark, deep eyes.

She’s not a fan of baths, but loves washing her feet in the tub with cool water after a nice walk. She will even jump in the shower!

Reeses is almost 6 months old now and we are so excited to see how she will grow. Thank you NEAS!

Carly (Emma) is doing wonderful. 

She is adjusting very well.  Our 9-year-old wired haired terrier Spencer, who we also got from Northeast, and Carly are best friends. They are inseparable.
