CLAIRE. Rescued from being left chained for months to a cement wall in New Lots for being "shy." After receiving care and time to decompress, we took Claire for a ride from Brooklyn to Boston where she began her new wonderful and safe life. Now the only thing she has to be afraid of is bath water. 

BEN. Rescued from a kill shelter in Manhattan at just 6 months old. Ben spent a few days in the city getting better and then took a ride from Brooklyn to Boston and began his new wonderful life. With furry sister Claire and beautiful human mommy Lauren :) 

TYSON. Rescued after a two-year wait, from a shelter in Long Island. Now Tyson is having a wonderful time deciding which he likes best...being king of the dog run, pillow stealer, brother to Tommy, kitty snuggle buddy or goat herder...Tyson is loving his new life!

REGGIE. Rescued from a shelter in Long Island after being found as a stray. He now is living happily with his mommy Taylor and his daddy Jake who are the some of the best doggie parents ever!

KEITH. Rescued from being tethered to an 18-wheeler in a scrap metal yard in Queens. After 18 months, lots of specialized training and a couple of failed adoptions in the city, Sav-a-Bull determined that a life away from concrete, kennels and traffic was what Keith needed. And we are very, very happy to say Keith is now living successfully with his human dad Don. There he swims in a lake, plays with his furry German Shepard sister Stella and cat brother and hikes every day!

As a result every member of Sav-a-Bull, many of our trusted friends, family, training and daycare partners spent every hour of every day with Eli for over a year.

But we must admit, we all fell head over heels in love with him and miss spending our time with this incredibly sweet, smart, snuggly and very special boy.

ONYX. Rescued after a two-year wait, from a shelter in Long Island. Sweet and sensitive Onyx was anxious in his cage at the shelter. Now Onyx is providing unconditional love, and is helping his new human mom Madeline successfully overcome anxiety and confidence issues of her own. YAY for Onyx.
