Be my Valentine  that’s what you’re saying right?

This guy is one of those dogs from the streets of Memphis where a kind person finds him, pays for their vetting, and then looks for a wonderful home - they are keeping him until he comes to New England because they want to make sure he never lands on the streets again.

His foster dad was driving home one day and noticed this boy sitting on the street with some food in front of him.  He also noticed he was limping and in some obvious pain.  What he also noticed was another man calling to the dog and the dog limped over, tail wagging, obviously happy to see whoever this person was.  The man told our foster that he had just been feeding the dog and felt bad but as it turns out this was most likely his prior owner who had set him on the streets but was feeling badly.  

The fosters scooped him up later that day when no one was around so he didn’t get hit by a car or have his prior “dad” come back again for him - he deserved better.

He’s had all his vetting done - he’s in great shape and his limping was just an injury that healed  - all is good w/ this boy.

Now the really important stuff - Valentine is a young, energetic dog that will need training (especially leash training) They adore him but are not in a position to have another dog so they are holding out for the very best family.

Housetrained, crate trained and awesome with other dogs.  What else do you need?

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.
