We struggled to figure out the breed mix of this little girl and her sister Ramona - pittie puppies with big ears? Some other terrier - we are trying to narrow it down - wish we knew exactly because they are cute as heck.

Arrived into New England and are getting comfy in her foster home.

They should do well in any home but of course with small children you need to watch for puppy nipping and mouthing.

Recent update from foster mom:

Rita is doing soooo great - she’s a very sweet and happy pup. She is very excited to see the kiddos when they get home from school. She’s learning how to play and walk on a leash through the neighborhood. She is crate-trained and does very well overnight. We are working on house-training and basic commands – she’s food motivated and eager to learn.

Puppy classes will be required or we can provide you with some free visits with our training partner, GOODPUP - it’s a virtual training program that we’ve had lots of success with.

Adoption fee also includes transport fee.

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.
