We welcomed this sweet old soul into a foster today right here in New England. He’s getting a new name for a new start. His new name is Pappy Van Winkle after the Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon as it’s well aged, rare to find and so worth it just like him! We’ll call him Pappy for short.

Pappy was a loved dog and had been with owner his whole life. Unfortunately his owner fell on hard times and went into a shelter himself and no one could talk the shelters into letting him take his best friend too. So Pappy was selflessly surrendered to a local shelter and was lucky enough to find great volunteers who advocated to get him into rescue. Their plea tore at our heartstrings and he only spent a few days at the shelter. He’s now in a loving foster home and ready to find his forever retirement home.

Pappy is young at heart, don’t let his age fool ya. He’s still got pep in his step and greets you with a smile and a paw shake. He’s crate trained and appears to be fully housebroken. Pappy is still able to do stairs and enjoys rides in the car and walks on leash.

Pappy has done well around the dogs in his foster home and we think he’d do ok with another laid back dog.

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.
