Breeds: Pit Bull Terrier, Labrador Retriever
This adorable pup is Charcoal, who greets and welcomes everyone with a wagging tail and kisses.
Charcoal was rescued from a neighborhood where a teenage girl was trying to care for him, but soon realized that he needed a better life. He is now residing in a safe and warm foster home.
Charcoal – or Char – was a little wild at first but has learned (mostly) not to jump, how to sit for a treat, and is learning to come when called.
Char cries in his crate at first but then settles down. He is learning indoor potty manners – he does head for the door when told it’s time to go outside and goes to the bathroom immediately once outside.
He is living with two other dogs and gets along very well with them. He loves to play with the other dogs as well as his toys and snuggles with them when napping. There is a cat in the house that he likes to play with too.
He is very strong and active, so younger toddlers may not be the best until he grows out of the puppy stage.
Being a young pup, he does like to chew… so toys, toys and more toys are a definite requirement.
Everyone that meets Char is just so smitten with him. When he went to the vet, all on the staff loved him! He also rode well in the car to his appointment.
Check out a little video of him waiting for his exam:
Charcoal’s ideal home would be with a family who can take him on walks, adventures, and exercise outings.

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.
