Fostering in New England!

Meet Fella Hound! This sweet, 4 month old, 23 pound baby boy is really the total package.

Fella is very loving to all people. He especially loves the kids in his foster home and is always up for a little romp in the back yard. He does well with other dogs and has had a successful cat test. He IS a puppy, so it’s always a good idea that cats in the home have a place to escape their annoying little brother, but he seems to think cats are pretty cool.

Fella sleeps through the night in his crate, and he is really getting the hang of leash walking! He also knows the sit command pretty consistently. We can never guarantee a 4 month old pup is “housetrained,” but with consistent and frequent opportunities to go outside, he seems to understand that is where he should do his business.

With his deep, soulful eyes, this Mister will absolutely Steal Your Girl. So be prepared for that!

Fella is sweet, gentle, and affectionate. He loves to be with people, and his foster family reports that he is the only 4 ½ month-old puppy they’ve had who just doesn’t nip or bite! He’s wonderful with the family’s 7 year old and 11 year old, and everyone else he meets. He’s still got the puppy playfulness, but just as much he loves to sit on laps, lay next to his people, get belly rubs and give kisses.

He did great with his litter-mate while they were together here. HIs litter mate found a home already, and Fella has now fully integrated with the 3 resident dogs. They are bigger than him and have a bit of a rough-and-tumble play style, and he’s out with them for a good part of the day. They run and chase each other around, play tug with rope toys, and snooze in the shade. They also hang out in the house together and will sleep next to each other or swap chew toys.

When Fella first arrived, he barked a lot! Just over two weeks in his foster home, and he’s hardly barking at all. Sure he’ll let out a bark or two when he’s playing with the other dogs, but other than that, he’s so laid back and happy to just be with his friends. The only time his foster family really notes him barking is when they put him in his crate and leave. He does stop quickly. He’s a dog that will tolerate short periods of time alone in a crate for running errands etc., but would not be a good candidate for being left alone for long periods of time in his crate.

At night he sleeps in a crate beside the bed. Many nights he doesn’t bark at all when first put in. Occasionally he’ll still whine a bit or bark for a minute, but once he settles in, he’s sleeping up to 11 hours with no accidents!

He knows his sit command, is doing great with leash walking and is starting on his other basic commands.

Fella is one of the sweetest, gentlest pups we’ve had. He would love to have his own family or be someone’s best little sidekick!

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??


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.
