Lena is one of those dogs that when you get her home you know you’ve done a good thing!
She came to us in early January VERY pregnant and promptly had many gorgeous babies! She was a fabulous mom and her babies have all gone home. Now, her time has arrived.
Lena is fostering in New England and is a great girl. As her fosters have come to know her they’ve realized that she’d prefer to be with you as much as possible; other dogs are fine but aren’t required in her new home. Her fosters are working on separation anxiety and have seen some improvements; we can continue to assist with this.
Housetrained, she’d prefer to not be in a crate and doesn’t need one.
She will live with other dog who is not strong willed and who won’t try to touch her food - she’s not a sharer.
Loves kids, especially the ones that love her!

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.
