FOSTERING IN NEW ENGLAND
My name is Lane and I am searching for my forever family! I would love to tell you about myself and see if we are a match. To start you should know that I am absolutely adorable!
So what can I tell you about myself? again I am super cute, very affectionate and very happy, my tail never stops wagging. I am very fun and silly and I crave attention! I can’t get enough love and affection. I probably am going to be a Velcro dog, meaning I am going to want to be with my people and will want to go where you go.
I love to play with toys, running with my canine friends and snuggling, I find snuggling very important! Almost as important as playing.
I am also going to learn new and exciting things with my foster family . I am almost completely house trained, I sometimes have an accident in the house but I am still learning. I am also being crate trained and yet again I am doing very well with it. I sleep through out the night , which my foster mom is very pleased with.
I love going for walks meeting new dogs and people along the way. I will need some training when meeting new dogs, I tend to get over excited and jump all over them. Most dogs do not appreciate my exuberance but they have all been tolerant since I am a baby. I defiantly love adventures and when I am old enough I will make a great hiking or running partner.
I love to play but I also enjoy my naps, nap time is very important. My foster mom works from home and I sit in her office on my bed and play with my toys and then take a long nap! So let’s just say I am an easy puppy to have around.
I am fostered with two large dogs and I love them! I am also being fostered with a kitty, I love him! Again I am a little much for him but I am learning to be gentle.
I am also smart and obedience school would really be good for me since I love to learn! Plus obedience training is very important for all puppies.
I can’t wait to meet my new owner (s) but until then I will hang out with my foster family who will teach me the basics so I will be already to go to my new family.
I hope we are a match!

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 consider purchasing this book before adopting. Perfect Puppy in 7 Days - How to Start Your Puppy Off Right, Sophia Yin, DVM - it is an amazing book that we recommend very highly and have had amazing feedback on.
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.
