This is one of those dogs that the pictures just don’t do her justics!!
Moxie is this gorgeous “Irish Setter” color but you can’t really see it in her photos. And besides that, she’s just adorable as well. Super playful and delightful.
Her vet visit showed her to be between 4 and 5 months old per the vet and in relatively good shape - a little underweight but nothing she can’t catch up on.
Her rescuer is one of our friends who often helps a family in a section of Memphis that is plagued by poverty and lots of homeless dogs. She was living in a backyard and rumor is there were 9 others and she was the only one left - we almost don’t want to know what happened to her siblings. We are just thankful we have this girl now.
She’ll need some training of course but so far is doing really great in her foster home playing with her big foster sister. She’s taking corrections from her pretty well too.
Moxie will arrive to New England to another foster home on Saturday on 6-25 but we think she won’t be there too long because she’s just so adorable and will get scooped up! Don’t wait too long to think on this pup!!

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.
