Our Weekly Falmouth Enterprise Column


By Anna Dos Santos

Friday, March 17, 2023

Since our last column, Desmond - our Chihuahua, Tucker - a Goldendoodle, Savannah - a Border Collie mix, and her daughter Mouse, have all been adopted. We are so happy that all these dogs have found wonderful homes.

Dogs available for adoption

Savannahís other daughter, Coco, is still available. Part Border Collie, GSD, black Lab and Whippet, her coat is short-haired, light brown color with a mohawk down the back of her neck. She is about 3.5 years old and weighs 34 lbs.

Coco has a calm, sweet disposition and enjoys playing with toys and other dogs and sitting on your lap. We donít know how she is with cats, but she did interact well with children. Coco is microchipped and fully vaccinated and will be spayed this week. If you would like to meet Coco, call us at 508-548-7742.

Dog available for adoption

Rusty Red is a friendly, kind dog that gets along well with other dogs and children. As you can guess from his name, Rusty has a beautiful reddish-blond coat. He is 6 years old and looks like a lab/terrier mix. Heís healthy and strong, weighing 86 lbs.

Out on walks heís very cooperative and walks calmly, unless a car or truck passes by. This frightens Rusty so we are working on desensitizing him to moving vehicles and counterconditioning him. Otherwise, heís a pretty mellow dog. If you would like to meet him, please call us at 508-548-7742.

There will be four new dogs arriving at the shelter this week, but we donít have good pictures of them yet. Gizmo is a 25lb terrier mix who is about 18 months old. Lil, Phil and Tommy are all Blue Heeler mixes from the same litter. They are about 4.5 months old and all weigh around 15 lbs. As soon as we get to know them better, we will be scheduling meet and greets for all of them. If you would like to have your name put on the list to meet them, please call us at 508-548-7742.

Dog available for adoption

Cedric needs a new home! FFD is helping a family rehome him. Heís a sleek, tan, 5 year old Staffy mix. He loves people, especially the familyís 2 year old daughter, and is super affectionate. Walking, riding in cars, playing with a ball and eating are some of Cedricís favorite activities.

He would love to be part of an active family that can give him lots of exercise and where he can be the only pet since he is not a fan of other dogs. If you are interested in meeting Cedric, please call the shelter at 508-548-7742.

Dog available for adoption

Our wonderful Bruno is patiently waiting for the family thatís going to love and adopt him. Bruno knows that all the volunteers at FFD love him but he knows there is more love out there waiting for him. Bruno is a very sweet, 8 year old dog German Shepherd that enjoys belly rubs, being brushed, playing with balls and being with his people.

As with many GSDs, itís best for him to be the only pet and he really needs a fenced in yard. Bruno has been neutered, microchipped and is fully vaccinated. Call us at 508-548-7742 to meet Bruno.

We are still offering our Vet Assistance Program, designed to help ensure your dog is able to see a veterinarian for care when needed, as well as our $60 Food Voucher Program. The food vouchers are redeemable at Uptown Dog on Route 28A in West Falmouth or at Falmouth Pet Center on Route 28 near Stop & Shop. To participate in either or both programs, please call our office at 508-548-7742 and leave a message specifying what you need. Please be sure to slowly and clearly state your name and phone number.
