  Meet Sprout!

Sprout is a 6 year old, spayed female. She came into rescue tipping the scales well over 20lbs. and has slimmed down to 15lbs but will always struggle with her weight - she LOVES to eat.

Sprout has had a rough life. She spent the first four years of her life living in a wire cage with little to no socialization with people. She is extremely frightened by strangers, especially men and quick moving small children. She has made great strides in her foster home with meeting new people and experiencing new situations. She will need a patient, quiet home that will allow her to warm up at her own speed (which usually doesn't take long). Once she trusts you, she is a total love bug.

Sprout is very intense and will bond VERY deeply with her person(s). She would like to be permanently attached to your hip if possible - following you anywhere and everywhere, a true "velcro" Griff.

Sprout would like a new home that understands she doesn't want strangers approaching her or touching her. She also wants no small children and another outgoing, fun dog(s) for security and comfort. Sprout is healthy, up to date at the vet, and looking forward to her forever home.

Sprout is being fostered in Millis, MA.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Cristen at emmaresq@yahoo.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
