NOW FOSTERING IN NEW ENGLAND!!
Meet Loveable Leia.
Though shy at first, she will soon melt in your arms. This sweet stray was rescued by All 4s and then vetted and spayed. She is now being nurtured and loved by her foster family until she has a home of her own.
At just 7 months old and 40 lbs. This petite lady will wag her whole body with joy when she sees you. She will happily crawl into your arms for cuddles. She is super friendly with other dogs and has no aggressive tendencies whatsoever. She shares toys well, but she is also content to be alone.
Leia loves everyone she has met and enjoys playing with them as well, especially the teenagers in the home. She is now also living with a toddler and an infant. Leia hasn’t met cats yet.
Leia has caught on well to crate training. She goes into the crate willingly and will sleep all night with no issue, though she will bark to be let out when she hears someone coming. She rests well and does not have accidents in the crate. She is working on her house training but hasn’t quite perfected it yet. But she makes progress each day, so it won’t be long!
She is also doing well with leash training. Leia could win over the hardest of hearts, but who could have a hard heart when meeting such a loving pup? Leia is pure sweetness and happiness. She is visibly thrilled to see her people when they arrive. She is quickly and eagerly learning all the proper doggy behavior—especially how to be a couch potato!

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.
