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.

  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Breed: Black Labrador mix Age: 1 year old Weight: 60 lbs Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: Yes Good with Kids: Yes Energy Level: High Available for Adoption: 12-14-2019 (Currently accepting applications) Your application must be approved prior to any meeting. Meet Bailey! He is a 1-year-old Black Lab mix who loves exploring! Bailey is quite the adventurer and loves water. He will happily go along with you on your walks, hikes, and trips to the lake! Being only a year old, Bailey has typical youngster energy and requires daily exercise and playtime. He is looking for a family who is not gone long hours every single day. He is also hoping to find an active household where he will have someone to run around the yard with and even teach him how to fetch! Bailey would have no problem sharing a home with a doggy sibling. In fact, he wouldn’t mind if he were sharing a home with kitties either. He’s just a happy-go-lucky sweetheart who is nice and content as long as he gets plenty of attention and affection! His new family should be prepared to teach him things that he does not know yet, such as potty training, basic commands, and what is and is not a chew toy. He can’t wait to meet you!

  • Great Pyrenees
  • Spayed/Neutered

  • Prefers home without cats
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

Meet Billy Madison! Billy once had a loving owner and a warm home. Unfortunately, after becoming terminally ill, Billy’s owner had to make the tough decision to surrender sweet Billy to the shelter. He is without a doubt one of the shelter favorites and he wants the attention of every person he passes. Billy is so friendly and such a social guy! He is excellent with other dogs, but especially takes a liking to females. He gets along very well with male dogs too, though he tries to be Big Brother with them and believes he makes the rules for the pack. Billy has been in a home for many years and it shows through his house manners. He is a smart boy who is housebroken and will indicate that he needs to go outside by barking by the door. We’ve promised Billy we will find him a wonderful home and we intend to do so! If you would like more information about Billy Madison, contact Scott at ScottD@DoubleDogRescue.org

Being a smart pup, we believe Frankie would catch on quickly to training. His family should be willing to train and teach him all there is to learn about his new environment!

  • Catahoula Leopard Dog, Rhodesian Ridgeback
  • Spayed/Neutered
Jax is a card! He is smart, active and eager to learn. He is energetic yet loves to cuddle when activity is over. He is good on leash as well as house and crate trained. He loves to play and sometimes his roustabout enthusiasm is a bit too much for small children. He is easily correctable and one shouldn’t mistake his enthusiasm for anything but teenage puppy joy which tickles his foster mom.... She describes him as....” Playful, Big baby sums him up well. Jax LOVES to get in your lap and have his belly rubbed, gives lots of kisses. He is GREAT on leash, definitely crate trained, thinking he was in one a lot, sometimes he goes straight to it when I’m not making him. He even gets in it at bedtime. I have a dog bed for each of them in my room to sleep/lay on, but he typically gets in bed in the crate????. Working on basic commands sit, stay and come. Still puppyish and will need his own chew toys to satisfy him. If you are looking for an adventurous companion with a sparkle in his eye and an excitement about even the littlest outing or game, Jax is the boy for you. Contact : Emily

Breed: Labrador/German Shepherd mix Age: 3 years old Weight: 45 lbs Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: No Good with Kids: Yes Energy Level: High Available for Adoption: Now (Currently accepting applications) Your application must be approved prior to any meeting. 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!

Meet Jerry Lee! He is a huge lovebug and is super sweet! Jerry Lee 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 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.

Breed: Mt. Cur mix (hound ) Age: 2 yrs. Weight: 50 lbs. Good with dogs: yes Good with cats: yes Good with kids: yes Energy Level: 6 but will settle after activity Available for Adoption: Your application must be approved prior to meeting any dog. Katrina is in the Stamford, CT area in foster. 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 home. 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 northern foster mom: Katrina would make a great addition to just about any family, because she is highly adaptable to her environment. She jumped into our car within mere seconds of meeting us and settled into our home within a matter of minutes. I like to call Katrina a “plug and play” dog, as she is fully housebroken, knows basic commands, and is generally sweet, gentle, and polite. Katrina aims to please her people and is extremely loving and trusting. She can be left home alone without fear of accidents or destruction, enjoys car rides, and sleeps soundly through the night. Katrina LOVES to play with other dogs, but also enjoys alone time chewing on bully sticks or watching the squirrels in our yard. She tolerates and entertains our 7-month-old puppy all day long, but is just as content to snuggle in bed or lounge around all day. Katrina loves to walk and explore her environment and she is a strong, working-breed pup and requires some additional, but totally manageable leash training. Katrina is ready to settle into life with you and your family. If you are looking to skip the puppy stage and settle into life with a happy and well-adjusted pet, please consider Katrina. Lovely Katrina is already spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, current on preventatives, and micro chipped. If you would like to make Katrina part of your family, please email kgorman2989@gmail.com

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!

Good with dogs: yes (not huskies) Good with cats: yes, the cat is his best friend Good with kids: older kids Energy Level: high but has an off switch once exercised Available for Adoption: Your application must be approved prior to meeting any dog. Calling all runners (or long walkers)! Marley is super sweet Lab/Whippet mix boy who loves move as well as play frisbee or fetch a ball. Like all labs, he does best in an active home~ a tired dog is a happy dog! He has been known to steal the warm spot in the bed when given the chance. He isn’t a big eater (whippet trait) but he does love treats in his Kong. He has been formally trained by Peace of Mind Canine in Bethlehem, CT. He knows sit, stay, come, down, no, and heel. He is working on his leash skills and is always eager to learn more! Marley is a super smart and attentive and thrives with mental and physical stimulation. He has not spent much time around little kids, so he would do best with teenagers and adults. He is friendly with most dogs, though he was attacked by a husky at the dog park when he was little and since then has not liked other huskies he has met. Since Marley's favorite action is running, a home with a fenced in yard would be key! He would probably make a great running partner for someone so inclined. All in all Marley is a sweet spirited energetic boy with oodles of love to give. Contact: kgorman2989@gmail.com PLEASE REMEMBER: The specific breed of any dog abandoned to a shelter or rescue is only the best informed determination of rescue in agreement with our veterinarians.

Breed: Beagle mix Age: 4 - 5 years old Weight: 40 lbs Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: Yes Good with Kids: Older Energy Level: Medium Available for Adoption: Now (Currently accepting applications) Your application must be approved prior to any meeting. Meet Maya! She is a super sweet girl who is looking for a quiet home. Maya can be quite nervous, especially with new people, and it is obvious she was mistreated in her previous home. Therefore, a home with no young children would be best. Maya’s previous owners would also leave her home alone from morning until night, over 10 hours every single day, which she hopes to change in her new home. She would be happy with a family who is around more often, at least often enough to give her attention and affection. She is very smart and a great listener! She knows a handful of basic commands, such as “sit” and “stay”, and her recall is excellent. Her new family should be understanding that Maya’s past has been less than desirable and it may take time for her to warm up to her family members. However, once she does, she will show you just how much she loves you and appreciates the affection she has been so starved for!

She enjoys going for walks and would probably love hiking and maybe even being a running partner. She loves to do zoomies outside and would truly enjoy a fenced in yard. She will be a wonderful family dog but will need a family who has time to see she gets the exercise and attention she needs. I think you will find she is worth it.

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: Collie mix Age: 11 years old Weight: 35 - 40 lbs Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: Not Tested Good with Kids: Yes Energy Level: Low Available for Adoption: 12-14-2019 (Currently accepting applications) Your application must be approved prior to any meeting. Meet Petie! He is a low-energy boy who is looking for a home to relax in and a family to just enjoy life with. Petie is your guy if you are searching for a sweet Senior who would prefer to nap on the couch with you rather than go for a jog. This poor boy once had a broken shoulder that had since been repaired. Unfortunately, it did not heal properly and what was once an “old injury” had to have another procedure. This did mean a leg amputation for sweet Petie, but he is so much happier now! Petie is as gentle as can be and hopes to find a quiet home that matches his calm demeanor. He is a little confused by on-leash walks but some practice will get him more familiar and comfortable with them. Take a chance on a Senior dog and you will not be disappointed!

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.

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. Poor Newton came to the shelter as a stray and it really took a toll on his initial bubbly personality. He became confused, scared, and went from the always happy boy to the always timid boy. 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.

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.

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
