Fill out an adoption form

“Did you just say adopt? I am all ears!”

“If you like piña coladas (not really, I don’t drink) and giving treats while I train
If you don’t lounge around
and like to stroll in the rain
If you like taking pups on long walks and enjoy the landscape
I’m the one that you’ve looked for apply for me and escape…”

This pretty girl is Monroe. She is still quite a typical puppy..she loves to play and train…she would play and train all day if she could. She loves praise and she loves treats!

Monroe is super sweet and super smart! She knows: sit, stay, paw, wait, down, off, touch, look at me, by my side & leave it…there is surely more to come, because we work every day and Monroe is a genius!

Monroe doesn’t want for much, like most girls, she just wants lots of love and attention! She had a rough start living as a stray puppy in Memphis…it was lonely out there.
One day, someone picked her up off the street and took her home. But, they didn’t welcome her into their home, they kept her tied up outside…with very little interaction and socialization…for 5 ½ months. Who can blame her for wanting to look for a companion who is going to give her what she deserves?

So, yes, even though Monroe is almost a year old, she is still very much a puppy! She finds joy and wonder in the simplest things. She takes nothing for granted and very little goes unnoticed. She is curious about everything!

Monroe loves to be outside, run and play fetch, and yes, she fetches and gives you the ball so you can throw it again…and again, and again. She also enjoys car rides…there is so much to see! She loves toys, especially chew toys and balls.
She is eager to please and can’t wait to be your new best friend.

Monroe’s ideal home would be one where she is showered with love and attention. She would be so appreciative of someone who is willing to continue with her training…she would be a great candidate for an agility class! Monroe enjoys being around other dogs, so another dog would be great…as long as your other dog doesn’t mind a pesky little sister!

So, at this point, your answer should be…

“Yes, I like piña coladas (only for the sake of this bio) and giving treats while you train
I’m not much into lounging
and I love to stroll in the rain
I’ve got to meet you really, really soon and cut through all this red tape C’mon, don’t dilly dally
Let’s plan to meet and escape!”

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.


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.
