The Fairview litter is a typical litter of puppies. They were picked up by a good Samaritan in Texas after being dumped in the country.
Like most puppies, they are active but not too active. They love to run and play with each other and love love toys. They are not skittish and do love lots of attention, as most puppies do.
They have easy access to the outside and do not potty in their personal space, but they also don’t know to go to the door to ask to be let out. They are kenneled when the foster is away from home. No issues in crate, but they have not been created individually. They do ride quietly created but have had some car sickness.
A perfect home would understand puppy antics and be willing to train to be the best family member possible.
They all have easy-going temperaments, and foster feels they could adapt to a quiet, moderately active home or a highly active household.

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.
