Little man here has a life on the streets we don’t know too much about before we were lucky enough to bring him into our rescue.  We were told he was found entangled in a bush but then the story changed - doesn’t matter.  He’s safe and sound in one of our foster homes and doing well.

We’ve neutered him, he’s had his vaccines and this week he gets his teeth cleaned so they are pearly white for his new family!!  The vet estimate he’s approx. 7 years old.

His foster mom says he’s a very nice little guy - doesn’t seem to bother anyone - living with her dog and doing great.  He’s still adjusting a bit but it’s been a couple of weeks now so if he was going to be a terrorist we would have expected to see it by now!! 

He gets along fine with the other dogs in the house and the cats. He’s a burrower in the blankets abs cuddle for sure. He does need to eat his food by himself as he protects it but otherwise he’s fine!

Hopefully he can head to New England shortly!!

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.
