Looking for a fun energetic pup?? Frisco is the pup for you. He is a playful, curious pup. He loves doing zoomies with his foster siblings.

Frisco was a puppy mill boy. The mill was closing down and he was the last one there. Our southern rescue partner scooped him up quickly. (Thank Goodness!)

Since Frisco only knew living in a cage, he wasn’t socialized well. He is not afraid of people, but he will sometimes play hard to get at first. However he is definitely doing much better as of late and coming around socially.
He will jump up for treats and follows his people in the yard.

He is a smart pup and already knows what “lets go potty” and “lets go in” means. He is crate trained and working on house training. He sleeps all night long in his crate and will make the cutest little howl when he needs to potty.

This guy LOVES toys including items that he believes are doggie toys. He will grab your shoe and run like crazy with it. He doesn’t tear it up, he just collects them….actually kind of cute to watch!!

Frisco is just a truly fun pup that will brighten up any household.

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.
