Fill out an adoption form

Jake has arrived and is fostering locally in New England - his foster family thinks he’s awesome.

He is a lab mix and is very sweet. He is 1-2 years old old and a big goofy boy. He needs some work on his basic commands and house manners, but he is VERY willing and is a quick learner. Since being in foster for two weeks he is improved dramatically with his house manners and is learning his basic commands.

Jake cannot be around farm animals, Specifically horses.

He is comfortable in the crate and walks great on a leash. He would do great with an active family with older kids and with a little training he could be your new best friend!

His new photos show how gorgeous he is!

Before arrival to New England:

Jake is a great dog!

He is a happy fellow that loves everyone. He does well in the dog park with other dogs, male and female. He likes to run and chase other dogs and be chased. He is a vocal player and can get a little pushy but corrects easily. He is a smart boy and can easily conquer our agility course with ease. He has been around 8 year old children and does well!

Jake was found as a stray.

Jake will do best in a home with submissive dogs that understand his vocal play is not to cause trouble. He also needs to learn some leash manners so he can be easily walked. Right now, he pulls pretty hard on the leash and that may calm down some once he is out of the shelter environment.

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.
