Now here’s some absolutely adorable puppies!!
THE SAINT PUPPIES:
These pups have an amazing story - one of our frontline rescuers got a call that a mom & what looked like newborn pups had set up shop outside a church. One of the parishioners was worried about them as it was cold so she took the pups and put them in her car to warm them up, not realizing taking them from their mom isn’t always a good idea. Mom ran away and we were so worried that she’d be too scared to come back.
The ladies in Memphis weren’t having that so they set out to get mom trapped and they were able to that the very next day, and they found another pup hiding in the woods with her!! All were safe and doing well - bottle feedings for a day or two and they are now growing like week.
A total of 8 puppies and only 1 girl in the mix!!
Now in a safe foster they are growing like weeds and loving life. Their mom (Saint Gianna) is a gorgeous blue girl and an excellent mom! They will be kept with mom until they are ready to be adopted in New England.
We will try to update photos as they can! Don’t miss out!

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.
