FOSTER IN NEW NEW ENGLAND
How cute is this little guy? Big boy too! We expect he’ll be approx. 100 lbs when he’s grown up!!
Cooper and his friend Elliot (also listed) have the “most boring story” per their prior foster mom - they rented a storage facility and the dogs were found hanging around there. She got a call to see if she could help and of course she said yes.
The boys are really sweet puppies and at this point we can just say they are healthy, happy and we don’t know if they are house trained although their foster believes they are.
They just arrived to New England on 1/21 and attended an adoption event and did well - not too scared of people and really “pepped” up as the day went on.
Their new foster mom will update with more about their individual personalities!

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.
