Meet our small, sweet laid back Shih-Tzu boy with the big name-Beethoven.

This little rag o’ muffin was found wandering as a stray. It was thought he would surely be claimed, but that did not happen. Needless to say, we were more than happy to welcome him into our rescue.

Beethoven is currently in a southern foster home with larger dogs and a house full of cats and he does good with all of them!!!

This boy loves being with his people or just chilling in bed….very easy going!!

His foster is working on housetrained and he is doing quite well.

If you are looking for a little sidekick to hang with, this is your boy. He will be eternally grateful to be loved on and to never have to worry about being out on his own again.

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.
