Breeds: Chihuahua, Dachshund
Itty bitty Dunkin!
As with most Chiweenies, don’t let his little size fool you - he’s a mighty boy! Cute as heck though.
An owner surrender who realized puppies weren’t as much fun as she thought - it’s fine, we were more than happy to take this little guy in.
He did live in a home with a 7 yo boy and did great with him.
He’s currently fostering with numerous dogs of all sizes and could not care less - he’s fine with all of them and loves to play.
His house training is a work in progress but he’s got the idea down pretty well.
NOTE: At this point, Dunkin HATES crates- his foster has tried but he screams bloody murder and honestly his foster just can get him to get the hang of it. If crating a dog is a must for you (which we very much support the idea), this guy will give you a run for your money!
If you’re interested in this little man, don’t hesitate - fill out an application, ask questions later.

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.
