ADOPT

Adopt a Double Dog Today!

Please fill out a Double Dog Rescue application and email it to the DDR volunteer in that dog’s petfinder bio. Be sure to contact your veterinarian and give us permission to do a vet reference check to expedite the process. Most vets require your approval. If you are interested in a general pre approval to adopt from our organization, send your application to preappddr@gmail.com. Home visits are also part of the initial process. Keep in mind that several people may have put an application in for the same dog. When this happens, an adopter is picked based on that particular dog’s temperament, personality, and how that matches with your family’s lifestyle

Our adoption fee is $485. Due to rising costs, our fee has been slightly raised in order to cover the cost of both vetting and transporting our dogs. We use professional transports to ensure the safety of all of our dogs. You will receive the vet records at the transportation pick-up. Remember, your adoption fee is tax-deductible at the end of the year.  Click here to download our application.

Adopting to Families With Children

We have a very specific contract that is tailored for families with children. If you have children under the age of ten who live with you and/or visit, you will be asked to submit this contract before you can be approved to adopt. As the adult(s) in the home it is your full responsibility to educate your child(ren) on the proper way to interact with your dog, and vice versa. We want your guarantee that you will introduce and educate your children (and their friends as well) as to how to properly and safely interact with your dog, creating respect and boundaries for both. Children and dogs should never be left together unattended. It only takes a moment for a dog to get accidentally hurt or startled and for that dog to react. We encourage you to watch this video with your entire family before you consider adopting.

  • Black Labrador Retriever, Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Breed: Black Labrador mix Age: 2 years old Weight: 51 lbs Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: Not Tested Good with Kids: Yes Energy Level: Medium-Low Available for Adoption: 11-23-2019 (Currently accepting applications) Your application must be approved prior to any meeting. Meet Audrey! Her southern foster describes her as perfection. According to her foster “Audrey is definitely a cuddle dog. She is happiest when she has human contact and touch. She loves all people and greets everyone she meets with a wagging tail. LOVES to be petted.” Audrey loves her walks (of course that is time with her person) and is very good on leash. No pulling or chasing—usually walks right beside you. Audrey gets along with other dogs but would be fine as the only pup in the house. She would do well in a family or with a senior. As long as you are willing to spend time with her and love her, she will be happy. If you would like more information about Audrey, contact Genevieve at GenevieveC@DoubleDogRescue.org

Breed: Great Pyrenees mix Age: 2 years old Weight: 85 lbs. Good with dogs: Selective Good with cats: No Good with kids: Yes Energy Level: Medium Available for Adoption: Now (Currently accepting applications) Your application must be approved prior to meeting any dog. Meet Belle! As a girl who believes she is a true princess, she needed a princess name! She is a stunning little lady with a sweet demeanor and a lovely personality! Belle is one big girl, weighing in at 85lbs., but despite her size, she is as gentle as can be! During the first few minutes of meeting, you will notice Belle is on the shy side and may keep her distance, which is very typical as being reserved is something her breed is known for. However, after a few minutes, she will warm up and will want to be pet and shown affection. Then after a few days, she will be running around the yard playing with her squeaky toys! Her perfect family would be ready to show her lots of TLC while she settles into her new home, and would be somewhat experienced or at least familiar with her breed. Belle has many stereotypical Great Pyrenees traits, including being independent yet loyal. She is looking for a yard to play in that is fenced-in to keep her safe from wanting to explore too far. Because of Belle's more serious side she would do best with a dog that isn't overly playful and is more like her in temperament. If you would like more information on Belle, please contact Michelle at MichelleD@doubledogrescue.org.

He enjoys playing with other dogs and would love to have a yard to run around in. There is one thing Bryce does not like and that is sitting still! His forever family must be prepared to have an active new family member in the home and should be ready for lots of playtime and walks!

Hi! My name is Curly. I was born on July 7, 2019. My mom is a Chihuahua and Dachshund mix, while my dad is a Pomeranian. I don't even weight 5 pounds yet, but I don't mind. I'm a curious pup that loves to play and get cuddles. I'm a brave little guy and took my vaccines like a champ. I don't mind pills either, especially when they're wrapped in cheese. My foster mom is trying to teach me to potty outside. I think I'm getting the hang of it, but I still need lots of guidance and patience. I am just a puppy after all. Would you like to adopt me? PUPPIES GROW INTO the expectations of their families through consistent love, caring and training. Puppies cannot be adopted to homes where they are left unattended for more that 3-4 hours. Not available for MA Quarantine. If you would like to adopt Curly please contact Marisa at marisa.thamm@gmail.com.

Meet Dave! He is an energetic 3-year-old Yellow Lab and Terrier mix who is all about affection and cuddles! Dave LOVES being around people and will want to hang out with his family all day, every day! This sweetheart has been in the shelter for over a YEAR! Being in a shelter in such a rural area where there is little-to-no foot traffic, Dave is counting on Rescue to find him a home. He enjoys playing with other dogs but does not like it when males get very dominant with him. However, he is very respectful of females, even taking their correction. He shows no signs of aggression when his attention is on kitties, but he is much too playful for them and his energetic personality will chase, chase, chase! Therefore, a cat-free home is required. Dave is a shelter favorite, but what he really wants is to be YOUR favorite! Can you give him a safe and loving home? If you would like more information about Dave, contact Tracy at TracyA@doubledogrescue.org.

Meet Ebony-Anne! Do not let her age fool you - this beauty is five years YOUNG and has oodles of energy! Ebony-Anne loves playing and she could play with her doggy friends for hours! She finds kitties too interesting and chases too often, so we are requiring a cat-free home. Ebony is looking for a family who will not be gone long hours, as she needs plenty of daily exercise and playtime! She is such a Velcro dog, as in she will stick to you like glue. If you get up, she gets up. If you walk upstairs, she will follow. And you better believe she will be in the kitchen staring at you the entire time you cook! Ebony-Anne is fantastic with children, though her high energy and large size may accidentally knock down some little ones, but it would never be intentional. This poor girl has gone through being abandoned, shelter life, Heartworm treatment, and people passing her by for her tough look. All she wants is a family who loves her!

He is quite the affectionate guy and will lean onto you for some love and attention! Though he may be on the larger side at 70lbs., Mr. Haggard is a gentle giant and is excellent with children. This sweet boy spent almost all of his short life outside where he was always just sort of there rather than actually part of the family. After his owner no longer wanted to care for him, it was DDR to the rescue and now he is ready to find a real family who will love him for the lovely boy he is!

Meet Jenna! She is a beautiful 3-year-old Lab and Shepherd mix who enjoys having a job to do! Jenna thrives on routine and structure and would be such a great candidate for agility training! She may not be a young pup anymore, but she still has tons of energy and loves to run around in the backyard, go for hikes, and play fetch! Her play style is a bit overly-friendly and tends to make more hesitant dogs feel as though they are being pushed around. Therefore, if Jenna is adopted to a family with another dog, they should also share her love of rough-and-tumble, high-energy playtime. There are still some behaviors that Jenna displays that are typically found in younger pups, such as turning anything and everything into a chew toy, so her new family must be prepared to do some basic training with her. Lucky for them, Jenna is very intelligent, aims to please, and has a great focus that will only benefit her when it comes to any new lessons that she will learn. This wonderful girl hopes to find a family who is home more than they are away, as she will want to have plenty of physical activity and mental stimulation throughout the day!

He enjoys playing and bouncing around so much that it is actually hard to get a good photo of him! He is quite the petite boy at only 35lbs. but he has a huge heart! Jerry Lee loves people and after his initial shyness wears off, he is ready to make friends with everyone. He is looking for a home where he will not be left alone for long hours every day, as this handsome fella needs plenty of exercise and playtime. However, he would be willing to reconsider if his family were to bring him to doggy day care while they are working a long shift! On-leash walks are still a little confusing to Jerry and he will need help gaining confidence during neighborhood strolls, as he will freeze when something spooks him. He would love a fenced-in yard to run around in and burn off some energy while not having to worry about that very confusing leash all the time. Make this adorable boy a part of your family and you will not regret it! If you would like more information about Jerry Lee, contact Katie at KatieF@doubledogrescue.org.

Lovely Katrina is indeed a very lovely Brindle Cur mix, 2 years old, and weighing 50 lbs. Like all pups, with consistent training the sky is the limit for her potential. She has come a long way from fending for herself and her babies to joining a loving foster home where she has learned house manners and commands. While she is crate trained, her foster mom often leaves her out of her crate alone in the house and Katrina does wonderfully! Katrina would do best with an active family who will take her on long walks, runs, or hikes. This beautiful girl is friendly towards all she meets. She enjoys the company of other dogs and cats and children. Lovely Katrina will need a high fenced yard or supervision outside until she is better acclimated and trained. She loves to be near and spend time with her family. From Katrina's foster dad: "she is a PLAYIN MACHINE! She wants to play MOST of the time. If I scold her for being too rowdy in the house…she will curl up on the couch and sleep She also LOVES hunting…squirrel and moles are 2 favorites. She also loves car rides and would love to ride and hike daily!" From her foster mom: "A good tiring out for a few minutes sniffing her surroundings she seemed to settle well. She loves to meet new people, she is super friendly and loved being loved on.She was even gentle with the baby and seems to know little people are fragile. She would do amazingly in a home with a active person and in a home with another dog who likes to play. On a scale from one to 10 in activity,she was about a 8 at first but she wore out and settled well and napped in her crate." Lovely Katrina is already spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, current on preventatives, and micro chipped.

Meet Konga! She was brought to the vet down South where her owner wanted to have her put down due to her eye bulging out. Luckily, she was surrendered and signed over to rescue. Konga was seen by the hospital where she did end up losing her eye. But have no fear - Konga does not let her loss affect her! She is still playful, happy-go-lucky, and very loving! She is such a sweet girl who loves to be around people. She easily makes friends with dogs of any size and age, but she does tend to play on the rougher side. Therefore, if adopted to a family with other four-legged friends, they should be able to handle her play style. Konga walks very well on leash and is looking forward to many walks with her new family in the near future! So far, she has been trained to potty on puppy pads, but is not fully housebroken. Her family should expect to have some work to do in the potty training department. Konga is ready to find her forever home!

Meet Kylie! She is a super sweet, people-loving, cuddly girl who thinks she is a lap dog! Kylie may take a little while to get comfortable around new people, but once she does, watch out! She will be following you around nonstop and wanting to always be by your side no matter what. Chewing on/playing with toys is her favorite activity and she will keep herself busy for quite some time doing so. Kylie loves the company of other dogs and would be so happy with a four-legged sibling! She will not hesitate to chase a cat, so a feline-free home is required. When tested with children, Kylie passed with flying colors! However, a home with very young children who may be louder than Kylie is comfortable with, especially during the transition period, would probably not be the best fit. While you are away at work for the day, Kylie will be happy in her crate with a Kong and perhaps a Nylabone to chew on! When you return, she will want nothing more than to take a leisurely stroll around the block and then curl up next to you on the couch afterwards!

Meet Midnight! This adorable puppy is looking for a forever home! He is especially looking forward to his very first holiday season and has already put lots of chew toys on his list of presents he hopes to get! Midnight is your typical high-energy pup who always wants to play! He is super friendly with everyone, though he is currently going through the teething phase so he enjoys chewing on everything. Things he likes to chew on also includes fingers and hands so watch out for any little ones who may not like the puppy nibbles that Midnight finds so amusing. This sweet boy is looking for a family who will not be gone long hours every day, as he is still working on potty training and requires lots of exercise and playtime throughout the day. If his new family does happen to work long hours, Midnight would appreciate going to doggy day care to socialize and play with all of his friends! Speaking of friends, Midnight likes to make friends with everyone… even if they do not want to make friends with him. He will need some help learning his manners and taking social cues from other dogs when they have had enough of his high energy. Midnight is a loving, playful, happy-go-lucky pup who deserves a wonderful forever home! If you would like more information about Midnight, contact Scott at ScottD@doubledogrescue.org.

  • Hound, Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Breed: Hound mix Age: 3 years old Weight: 65 lbs Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: No Good with Kids: Yes Energy Level: Medium Available for Adoption: 11-23-2019 (Currently accepting applications) Your application must be approved prior to any meeting. Meet Nate! He is a cuddly, affectionate, and loving 3-year-old Hound mix who deserves a family as wonderful as he is! Nate is such a brave boy. He has gone through Heartworm treatment, dental surgery, abandonment, and has put on a healthy amount of weight after being found far too skinny. This sweetheart was found on a very busy highway and, luckily, was scooped up and brought to the shelter. Soon afterwards, rescue came along and now Nate is ready to find a home up in CT! Nate gets along well with other dogs and wouldn’t mind sharing a home with one, but he’s not super interested in playing. He mostly wants to stick by his people’s side and kick back and relax! He’ll always be up for a daily stroll but he does tend to get excited when on walks (who can blame him - there’s so much to see!) and he can pull quite hard at times. Therefore, he will need a proper harness and a handler physically capable of walking him. Nate loves to be outside and enjoys sunbathing, rolling around in the grass, and sniffing everything. He is a Hound after all! He currently does not know any commands but he is very food motivated which will surely help when it comes to training time. His ideal family would consist of anyone who is willing to spend LOTS of time cuddling and giving plenty of belly rubs! Lastly, Nate has requested his new home come with squeaky toys as they’re his favorite! If you would like more information about Nate, contact Sarah at SarahS@DoubleDogRescue.org

Breed: Shepherd/Terrier mix Age: 3 months old Weight: 17 lbs Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: Not Tested Good with Kids: Yes Energy Level: Medium Available for Adoption: 11-23-2019 (Currently accepting applications) Your application must be approved prior to any meeting. Meet Piper! As a stray she got herself stuck in a drain pipe on a Sunday evening. A nice couple found her but when they called animal control for help AC would not go out. That’s when Piper’s luck changed. The couple called a southern rescue who got her out, bathed her flea covered body, fed her and gave her a warm bed to sleep in. Probably the first restful sleep she has had in a long time. Piper is a very sweet girl. She is timid at first but when she warms up (it takes about 15 minutes) she melts right into your arms. She is pretty low key right now but she is still confused. Her personality will come out the longer she knows she is safe.

Every girl can be a princess any dream can be. Close your eyes and see, A magic wand and soon you've gone From just you to royalty. You don't need a grand old castle rising in the air Maids to brush your hair Your heart is pure, you're thoughtful. Surely princess you're almost there. from- 'Every Girl Can Be A Princess' by Disney, Susan Egan This precious pup may not be true royalty but she is most definitely a true princess! Princess is a 4 month old Boston Terrier mix weighing 16 lbs and will likely be around 50 lbs when full grown. This adorable baby actually had a loving home but tragically her dad unexpectedly passed away. Family members reached out to rescue and of course we said yes to Princess. She is a very sweet loving baby girl, a little shy at first but quickly makes everyone a part of her royal court. Princess enjoys the company of kids, dogs, and cats - all of whom she treats with kindness. She is doing very well with her house training and willingly crates when asked to (treats are always appreciated). She's not a rough player but playing is always a fun thing to do with the ones you love. She is a master cuddler and snuggler, always willing to share her warmth to those in need. Princess is doing well with leash training and is working on a few basic commands. She is already spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, current on preventatives, and micro chipped. She is looking for her forever family and home so that she can grace them with her love and affection all the years of her life. She's waiting for you to wave your magic wand and bring her to your palace where she will forever be your Princess.

Meet Priscilla! She is the cutest little girl who hopes to have a home for the holidays! Priscilla is approximately 1 year old and is about 40lbs. She is excellent with everyone, including dogs, cats, and kids. She was a shelter favorite and everyone who meets her adores her! Priscilla is only shy during the first minute of meeting a new person, but she warms up very quickly and then wants to play! She is not too familiar with on-leash activity, such as walks, hikes, etc., and is a little confused by the leash. However, she is a fast learner so she will most likely pick up on it rather quickly. Priscilla is looking for a family who will have the time to spend with her and show her that she is loved!

Meet Raven! He is a 5-year-old Shepherd mix who loves attention! Do not let his age fool you. He may be an adult dog, but this boy has ENERGY! Raven loves to bounce around all over the yard and make new friends! He does like to be Alpha when it comes to his doggy friendships, so his new family should keep that in mind when introducing to other dogs. He just thinks he is the boss! Raven is great with kids in the sense that he is just such a friendly, loving, and playful guy! However, he can sometimes get too excited during playtime and can get quite jumpy. He would easily knock down a very small child, so older children would be best. His ideal family would be experienced owners, as Raven will need proper training as well as for his people to understand his stereotypical Shepherd characteristics, such as his confidence (hence he desire to be Alpha), high intelligence, and need for physical activity and mental stimulation. Being as smart and beautiful as Raven is, we are sure he will find a family quickly! Could that be you? If you would like more information about Raven, contact Tracy at tracyA@doubledogrescue.org.

Meet Sir Isaac Newton! He is a 3-year-old Cattle Dog and Shepherd mix who is looking for a family to call his own! Newton loves to be around people, but is a bit of a shy guy at first.

But now, he is still a little shy at first, but quickly warms up and becomes best friends with everyone! Playtime with other dogs is his favorite way to release some energy and get his daily exercise in. He has not had any interest in squeaky toys or tennis balls, but perhaps he will find a favorite toy when his new family takes him shopping for the first time. Newton does the most adorable full-body wiggle when he sees a familiar face. He will surely show you every time you walk through the door after a long day at work.

I know the desert can't hold all the love That I feel in my heart for you If I could spell it out across the sea I know my love would cover it up Ain't that a lotta love For one heart to hold. - from 'Ain't That a Lot Of Love' by Three Dog Night Taz is a beautiful 7 month old Catahoula/Hound mix with very unique parti eyes. He has one brown eye and the other eye is both brown and blue. He currently weighs 33 lbs and will probably be anywhere from 60 to 80 lbs when full grown. Taz is a lovable, affectionate, playful pup who loves to play fetch, get his ears scratched, snuggle up and gives great hugs. He has learned a couple of basic commands and will gladly learn more with further training. He is doing a great job with his house training by way of a doggie door leading to a fenced in yard. He will need a couple of extra days of training to learn new routines in a home without a doggie door. Taz, although not a big fan, is crate trained. He would much prefer to be out and about which will be fine once he understands boundaries and all the do's and don'ts in his new home. He is great with kids and loves playing with other dogs. We are not sure how he feels about cats as there are none in his foster home. Taz is already neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, current on preventatives, an micro chipped. He's ready to make his way into the lives of his loving forever family and home. This sweet little guy is just waiting to show you all the love he has in his heart so all he needs now is...you!

He is quite a happy and silly boy. He has some puppy playful energy and would enjoy an active family taking him along on outings. He would be happy in a household where he gets some exercise - maybe playing ball in a fenced yard. Other than that just give him love and attention and he will be happy.

He deserves a warm home, a loving family, and plenty of cuddles and affection! Though Twister is 10 years old, he has never lived in a home, as previously mentioned. Therefore, he will need to be taught that it is outside, not inside, that is the appropriate place to go to the bathroom. This adorable guy is good with other dogs and is even good with cats! He is excellent with children but adults should supervise all playtime to ensure little Twister is not mishandled. He is a low-energy fella and will be happy spending the afternoons in your lap on the couch, especially during these chilly months.

Meet Wiggles! He is an absolute love and a total sweetheart! Wiggles is just a year old and has many more years ahead of him to spend with his forever family! He enjoys playing and bouncing around and WIGGLES so much that it is even hard to get a good photo of him! He is quite the petite boy at only 35lbs. but he has a huge heart! Wiggles loves people and after his initial shyness wears off, he is ready to make friends with everyone. He is looking for a home where he will not be left alone for long hours every day, as this handsome fella needs plenty of exercise and playtime. However, he would be willing to reconsider if his family were to bring him to doggy day care while they are working a long shift! On-leash walks are still a little confusing to Wiggles and he will need help gaining confidence during neighborhood strolls, as he will freeze when something spooks him. He would love a fenced-in yard to run around in and burn off some energy while not having to worry about that very confusing leash all the time. Make this adorable boy a part of your family and you will not regret it! If you would like more information about Wiggles, contact Genevieve at GenevieveC@DoubleDogRescue.org
