This brindle beauty is Ruthie. She is one of a few dogs that has resided with one of our southern trainers, Desiree, for quite some time. Despite having some issues that make them a bit less adoptable, all pups still deserve homes where they are loved and their needs can be met. And having a trainer as a foster mom is a huge plus!!!

Ruthie is described as loving as the day is long! She loves to climb in your lap, she loves affection and will lean into you. She also makes a great heater, no doubt she’ll do fine up north. She is dog selective and can be a bit dominant, but has done well with easy going males and females. She has even shared a kennel with them. But in the end she would prefer a home where she has all the attention.

She’s fast and plays “BIG”. True to her breed, she has “Boxer” like play style with a little staffie mixed in..loves to play ball and sunbathe. She loves toys, ball is a favorite pastime. She likes to go for walks, hikes, and car rides. But can easily settle in for a calm snuggle session if the sun isn’t out.

Ruthie knows all basic obedience commands and crates well, leaving her crate clean and dry.

She is a bit fearful of loud voices and erratic human activity around her, so an more chill adult home with not much “traffic” would be best for this girl.

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.
