Meet Ruff! He and his sibling, Tuff (also for adoption) are handsome happy-go-luck energetic puppies looking for an active forever home.
Ruff is the more outgoing and confident of the two.

These brothers were dropped off at the vets office to possibly be euthanized because the finder couldn’t keep them and didn’t know what else to do. Thankfully, the vet instead made the decision to keep them there and provide them shelter until a foster home became available, Both boys are now with one of our fosters in TX.

These boys love to play with the other big dogs in the foster home and are truly fun pups. Their have a rough and tumble play style so a home with no cats. smaller dogs or young children would be best. Both like leash walks, but do need additional training as their excitement level sometimes leads to pulling and jumping when excited. They are both very smart, so they will eventually get it with patience and consistency.

If you are looking for a co-pilot they love car rides, no car sickness. They are fine in a crate in car for errands (they’ll ride for hours), but are not crated often when at home.

They would love an active home possibly with another dog of the same size and energy level, and maybe some older pre-teen or teenage kids.

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.
