NOW LOCAL IN NEW ENGLAND!
This amazingly handsome boy and his brother, also listed on our site, came to us from ARUBA! Yes, they’ve traveled from gorgeous warm weather to the snow and cold BUT they are more than happy to do so because they are no longer living on the streets, starving and at risk from some people who are not all that kind to the strays.
Their dog type, Cunucus, originate from Aruba and while not officially recognized as a breed by any association or kennel club, they are well-known to the locals. They are athletic and energetic sight hounds that are said to have hunted alongside the Arawak people who were indigenous to the area.
They are known to have a very friendly disposition toward adults and children. They show affection and make sweet family pets and companion dogs.
Arubian Cunucu dogs are also highly energetic and intelligent. Those who have rescued a Cunucu indicate that they are very easy to train, both as puppies and as adult dogs. They are extremely adaptable and can live quite peaceably even in a smaller home as long as they receive enough exercise and attention throughout the day.

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.

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.
