Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Don’t wait for flowers or chocolates – get out there and adopt your furry Valentine. I came across a few cuties who might check off the boxes and be your perfect match. These beauties are available to adopt at the Salem Animal Rescue League in Salem, NH.
A beautiful portrait of an adoptable animal helps them be seen and in turn, helps them find a forever home. I love when I’m able to carve some time in my schedule to visit a local shelter and photograph adoptable animals for their websites or petfinder.
My friend, Danielle, who used to assist me when I taught dog training classes, is now the adoption dog coordinator at SARL in NH. I love getting out there and we have a blast with the dogs!
I went out there yesterday and I met these four amazing pups that I’d love to share with you:
Precious – Pitbull Mix
Precious has been at the shelter waaayyyy too long! I think this was the 4th time I saw her while visiting. Here was my write up of her:
Surprised to see this adorable squishy face…again?
Can you believe she is STILL looking for her soulmate?
This cutie patootie shortcake, Precious, is not giving up! Could you be her Valentine match?
She does prefer the ladies (honesty is important in every relationship and so is knowing what you want!). She will steal your heart with her wiggles and waggles and sweet smile…and maybe even a smooch or two!
Picture yourself snuggled on the couch watching Netflix movies by the crackling fire with Precious – we still have cold days left this winter!
Precious is a bit picky with dog friends (as the little lady should be!) – but it is possible. You might just want her all for yourself – She IS the total package!
Chester – Pitbull Mix
Chester is another adorable adoptable Pitbull Mix at Sarl. We put him in this fun retro bandana which he ROCKED!
Here is my little clip on Chester:
All this talk about soul dogs and heart dogs that rock our world…..BUT….
Maybe you just haven’t met you soulmate yet?!!!
Today I met this adorable handsome hippo, Chester, at Salem Animal Rescue League He’s just over three years young – the perfect age! He loves walks and cuddles -doesn’t he sound like the perfect Valentine? You might make a perfect pair!
Mia and Lily – Boxer Mixes
I fell head over heels in love with this bonded pair, Mia and Lily.
Mia, the mama, is six years young and her baby girl, Lily, is two. The have so much energy and love to play! Two beauties.
Look at their sweet faces? How can you resist?
Who’s a Good Dog in New England
One of my good friends and I that met while volunteering, started our own Facebook page years ago (Who’s a Good Dog in New England) to help dogs find their forever homes. I do some of the photos, and we also cross post for other rescues and shelters throughout New England. If you know of anyone who might be interested in being featured, please let us know!
