Northeast Animal Shelter

Dapper Draper


About this J.P. Dog:

Draper is a nearly 9 month old rescued mix. “We were told he is a terrier mix when we adopted him. We got a DNA test from Wisdom Panel which told us one parent was a Cocker Spaniel mixed with something unknown and the other parent was a Scottish Deerhound mixed with a Jack Russell Terrier.

Draper was adopted in May 2015 when he was about 5 months old from the Northeast Animal Shelter, but he originally hails from Texas. We got to the shelter right when it opened that day and weren’t sure if we’d find the right puppy for us. I like to say that Draper chose me, because once I saw him wagging his tail at the front of his cage I couldn’t imagine going home with any other puppy.”

Morgan’s a winner


About this J.P. Dog:

Morgan, AKA “Morg” is a rescued 6 year old Hound / Great Pryrenees mix, according to Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, where he was rescued at the age of 3. “We believe the ‘hound’ part — it’s impossible to walk him without letting him smell every pebble in the pavement.” Also, “They told us he’d been tied up to a barn in West Virginia for his first three years. He was excruciatingly thin at the time.”  (more…)
