When Sheldon first arrived at the city shelter, he was too scared to even leave his kennel. Thankfully, he had some awesome volunteers looking out for him and he headed off to short-term foster. Once in a home setting, Sheldon really came out of his shell and caught the eye of Freedom First Rescue.
Sheldon is about 8 months old and 40 pounds. Everyone is baffled by his breed, best guess is pittie/beagle mix, maybe some basset. But whatever he is, it’s 100% cute. Sheldon thrives when he’s around other dogs, they are his favorite. He has also done great with small children and currently in foster with cats. He is a total goof and full of personality.
Sheldon is scheduled for surgery to correct his cherry eye this week and will be ready to head off to his forever home very soon. If interested in learning more about Sheldon, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ajax was part of a Trap-Neuter-Release rescue after a neighbor found him and his siblings under a tarp. Northeast Animal Rescue quickly jumped in to help. Mom was trapped, babies were scooped up. Since they were 3 weeks of age at the time of rescue, mom was able to finish her job as she knows best. Mom was then fixed, recovered and released back to her outside home where she is much happier.
Ajax is very friendly and wants to play. He enjoys his siblings. Ajax would do best in a home with one of his siblings or a young cat with equal energy.
