We adopted Brooke (formerly Holly) in January 2011 after our previous dog had passed away. She is a smart dog and is very quiet most of the time. She is a beagle mix so her barking is a little loud, but that’s hounds for you! Brooke is around 9 or 10 years old and has never had any health problems which is amazing! She started sleeping a lot so we decided to get another dog to keep her busy and did we!

We got Cooper (formerly Bronn) in October 2017 as a 4 month old puppy. He started as an energetic 13 pound little puppy and did get sick for a little bit and couldn’t gain weight but, it was just a food problem which has since then been fixed. When we adopted him we were told he was brought in with his mom and litter mates as surrenders, so they knew his birthday! Cooper loves toys and to annoy Brooke. As a surprise, we learned that he hates walks and prefers to run around the yard with a ball. He got neutered in May and did very well after. Also, he got much bigger than expected. We were told by the vet that he would be around 20-25 pounds. He now weighs almost 40 pounds which just means more dog to love! Cooper celebrated his first birthday on June 29, 2018 and we love him so much!

Sheriff is adjusting great!  To our pleasant surprise – he was crate trained before we brought him home.  He has had zero accidents.  So that let us get right to obedience training.  While he is doing well picking it up, he is one smart little bugger and finds ways around stuff!  For instance, he isn’t allowed on the coach upstairs, so he jumps over it so he can look out the bay window!

Sheriff came right at the perfect time for our family.  We had lost our previous dog in January.  For months our oldest boy was having a really hard time adjusting to life without his beloved dog.  We made the decision that the only way he was going to get out of his funk was to have a new friend.  Within a few days we were at Northeast Animal Shelter and Sheriff was coming home.  They have formed a strong bond already, and while my son still misses his previous dog, he is not dwelling on the sad but rather remembering the good times.

He is the perfect fit for our family.  He is goofy like the 6 year old, smart like my 10 year old and a snuggler like me!  Our only trouble is there are very few toys he can play with without destroying within 30 seconds.  What a chewer – luckily we found out about elk antlers and they are perfect for him!

 Charlie and Cooper (formerly Ned and Nate) are fitting in to our home and family wonderfully!! Both are very friendly and playful with the kids.

They are healthy, up to date on shots and seam to be very happy, we’re glad we adopted both of them.

I adopted Snowy in May, 2017. She was so shy and stayed underneath my bed for several weeks before she showed her face. Finally one night after I got in bed, she jumped up and snuggled close to my legs. (Always an arm length away). She did this every night but during the day, she wouldn’t let me near her. I couldn’t pick her up, I couldn’t pat her – nothing.

It has been 18 months and now she is so loving and affectionate! It took a while to get her to come around but it was so worth it. Look at how beautiful she is.

We got Saint over the summer and ever since he has been an absolute joy. He is a Border Collie Lab mix and he is the most loving and joyful dog you could ever meet.

He is so smart too and picks up commands so quickly! He loves to play and knows how to do so on his own. He runs and runs and runs outside and throws his toys up in the air all by himself. I love him so much and couldn’t be more grateful for him.

We adopted Tessie (formerly Deucy) on 11/10/2018. She is settling in nicely and is a total love bug; albeit, a mischievous one! She loves the beach, rides in the car and walks (though she needs work on her leash- she’s quite the puller!). We have started basic training classes this week and so far, so good.

Tessie is also wonderful in her crate where she currently sleeps through the night w/no issues. She has been to the dog park twice and is a bit timid but we will work on that. She is pretty friendly with the neighborhood dogs. She is quite the chewer and will pretty much eat anything if not watched closely- no soft toys for this girl.

Tessie has gained 4.2 lbs and is no longer all ribs since joining our family. She is a big hit at my office and comes to work with me a couple of afternoons per week. I think she loves us as much as we love her. Tess is a great girl!

My little one-eye- beauty has been in our family for almost a year now!

Penny (formally Glinda) has been such a light in our lives. She has the absolute best personality!

She acts as a dog and constantly wants love and affection. She is so funny and loves playing with her toys. She’s still trying to figure out her new puppy brother, Moose, but she’s getting there. Thank you NEAS!

We adopted Moose, (formally Andy), who is a pup from Sassy’s litter in August.

Our shy guy is now learning to be super confident. He loves snuggling with his family and running around with any and every dog. He loves jumping up on picnic tables wherever he can find one.

Its crazy to see the progress he’s made! We feel extremely lucky to have found Moose, he’s the perfect fit for our family and just overall the best pup! Thank you NEAS !

Haley has been wonderful! She seamlessly adapted into our home and gets along great with her feline sisters. Already housebroken, we established a regular feeding and exercise schedule for her. She understands boundaries and is well trained with commands.

Haley loves going road trips to a new adventure, whether it’s the beach, lake, forest, or New York City. On the forest trails, she often meets and plays with other new doggie friends. If you’re out there for a workout, she loves to show off how fast she can run, with plenty of energy to go for miles. If there’s water around, she will splash and play all day!

At the end of a long day’s play, Haley loves to lie by your side, or on top of you as a 60 lb. lap dog!

I am very grateful to have found this sweet girl through Northeast Animal Shelter!


She brings so much joy and laughter to my home.
