This big handsome boy was found dumped in the country with two siblings and an older dog.
They were starving, covered in fleas, and full of worms. Taken into rescue by the good ladies in the South, they were treated for fleas and worms and given proper food. Mitch is now a happy, playful puppy who loves to be petted and loved on.
His perfect home is where he gets lots of love and training to be the best family member possible. Being a young guy, and with proper training, he should make someone a great companion. He does well with other dogs. Due to his size and energy we think older children would be best! He also is a bit too rambunctious for cats.
Mitch loves toys, loves people, and loves to eat. He is very chill, quiet, and loving with his people after playtime. Mitch would make someone a great best friend!
Mitch can climb a 4 foot fence.

ATTENTION PUPPY ADOPTERS: You will be required to attend training/behavior classes with your new dog unless you are experienced dog owners and your adoption coordinator is comfortable with your experience. This requirement is for the benefit of you and your puppy so if you experience behavior issues you have a point of contact.
PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself before adopting.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
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.
