Meet the Easter Six litter. Five handsome boys and one adorable girl. All happy and healthy pups ready to find forever homes.
This unwanted litter was being given away to anyone that would take them. Our southern rescuers did not want these precious pups to get into the wrong hands, so she approached the owner and he agreed to give them to her to be put in rescue. These babies were found to be all quite sickly, but TLC, meds and good nutrition worked wonders.
Per foster mom:
“Swanky is one of the most light-hearted and loving puppies I’ve ever fostered; and those crazy ears”
This girl has a calmness about her underneath her puppy energy. She loves to play with my big dogs and can mouth-wrestle with the best of them. She is also friends with the fosters cat – although he may disagree about that. She shows no aggression towards him, but sure wants him to join in the fun.
Swanky is crate-trained but doesn’t love it. She is usually confined to the kitchen when foster is away. She is not destructive, and her chewing is confined to her toys. She does fine out of the crate when foster is at home. She is partially potty-trained. She knows to “go pee-pee” outside, and even asks to go out. She hasn’t made the connection that outside is where you “go poo-poo” as well.
She is shy about meeting new people and will hesitantly come forward to meet them. She warms up quickly once she knows that she is safe.
Swanky loves getting attention. She has done well with all dogs & people she has met.
Swanky does not care for cars. She gets nervous and often sick on short car rides. She always wants to jump in the car, but finds the ride distressing once in progress. She calms down quickly on arrival and readily gets back in the car for the return trip.
Swanky would love a home where there are other dogs for her to play with, but it is certainly not necessary. She can entertain herself well when alone. She loves attention and will be at home wherever she can get it.
Overall, she is a smart girl who would love a lap to lay on, lots of love, and lots of yummy treats.

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.
