If you're on the lookout for a new pet for you or your family, look no further.
Whether you want a dog, a cat, or even a furry little friend to complete your home, think adoption first! There are hundreds of lovable pets just waiting for you to take them home in rescue leagues and shelters everywhere.
Check out these 10 pets available for adoption from the Broken Tail Rescue League, below
Buster is an 8 year old, 12 pound fluffy Pomeranian. He is blind, but he doesn't let that stop him from enjoying life. His blindness is something he developed as he got older and he has an appointment at Tufts on June 6th for further review of why this happened. He can walk up small sets of stairs just fine, but will need to be carried down them as he gets nervous. Luckily this isn't much of a problem as he loves to be picked up and carried. He will beg you for it! It's really adorable. When not being carried around or cuddles next to you Buster is great in his crate and quiets down quickly.
Darby is a handsome, super sweet mixed breed with a great personality. He is 5 years old but you would never know as he doesn’t look a day over 3…at least that’s what he will tell you! Darby is a perfect size weighing in at around 40 pounds, ideal for sharing forts in the backyard for scheming summer shenanigans.
Hi, I'm Dot and I'm a sweet, house trained Springier Spaniel mix weighing about 45 lbs (but I could stand to gain a little bit of weight according to the vet.) I'm about 10 to 11 years old. I also have impeccable manners on a leash and around guests.
Meet Jace - he was found as a stray so we don't know anything about his background. His ancestry is a mystery but he's a really cute guy. He's about 3 years old and weighs 15 lbs. Jace is house trained. He's active and gets along with the other dogs in the house but no cats for this guy. Jace is affectionate and follows his foster mom where ever she goes. He's scared when meeting new people and will react but warms up quickly when he realizes that they're nice folks.
Hola! My name is Hunter and I'm a love bug from Puerto Rico! I'm a smart, sweet guy who will be three years old in September. I'm told I'm part lab, Shar Pei, greyhound, and chihuahua mix -- a winning combination! I'm in a foster home with two female dogs and a cat. Even though I'm a little confused about the cat, I'm learning to not be scared of her and to hang out together. Small children make me a little scared when I am in small spaces and cannot get somewhere I feel safe, so I'd do best with children old enough to know the boundaries of a dog and how to keep me feeling safe. I quickly love my humans and want to keep them safe. I am completely house trained, know basic commands, do not need a crate, and walk on a leash like a dream even while hiking! If you are looking for a big love bug to go on adventures with, I'm the friend for you!
Batman (aka Baby Bat) is a handsome three year old boy who likes to use his superpowers (and bedding) to disguise himself as a burrito. He is a friendly and affectionate guy who loves to purr! He enjoys playing with other cats and would probably do best in a home with young cats who can match his energy. Batman was a cuddler with his former mom, but was afraid of her husband, so he may be a ladies' man.
Licorice is a low-key black house panther who loves chin rubs and who just might be the nicest cat you'll ever meet.
Trooper is a ten year old cat.
He was found on the streets. He is a gentle guy who loves to nap. He loves to pend his time looking out windows and enjoys a good head scratch. He gets along fine with other pets as well as children.
Rey is a sweet, affectionate, chatty two year old girl who has a loud purr, even when she's falling asleep. She is a very social, curious, and playful gal!
Mango is a shy former stray getting acclimated to his surroundings. He accepts pets and is very gentle and sweet.
