Lou (formerly Rags - he doesn’t hear well, it won’t matter) was surrendered by previous owners daughter recently. Sadly no family member would take in when his dad died.

He’s with one of our foster moms and is actually a good leash walker and seems to enjoy it.

We were told he was never exposed to other dogs but his foster mom says she thinks he’d like another smallish dog to hang with in the house.

Seems to be housetrained.

Lou is a really easy dog that we hope won’t wait too long for his next and hopefully last home.

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.
