For a puppy who has been through the worst of circumstances this guy is just full of happy and kisses!!

He’s been on restricted activities because of injuries he sustained almost 3 months ago - he and his sister were found in crates in a yard where they were found to be suffering from fractured jaws, eye injuries and Ratchet also had a leg fracture. Another sibling miraculously was found without any significant injuries, Minnow, who is listed for adoption as well; their sister Rivet has been adopted.

Ratchet has been fostering with many dogs and has done well with all of them - he’s learning his house training; he’s definitely great in a crate.

He’s almost done with his rehabilitation and he’s expected to be like any other puppy with no residual defects - he’s attend physical therapy and is a rock star there. He’s a staff favorite.

Consider adopting this little survivor! He’s certainly an amazing little boy.

Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.  

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
