Peter-this smiling boy has such a unique personality…kind of the best of both worlds. He’s a gentle love bug, but also gets really into playing!

This handsome gent was in a southern shelter after being found as a stray. Unfortunately, space became an issue at the shelter. Once our southern partners at Paws and Claws heard about this, they picked this boy up and brought him to their sanctuary.

Everyone loves him! He’s so cute and sweet and gets along with the other dogs!
Peter is very respectful and keeps his space clean and dry (a good indicator of being housetrained)

Pete loves playing tug of war and LOVES LOVES LOVES toys with squeakers in it, although he love to “find the squeaker”, so durable toys are a must for this guy.

This boy is quite smart and already knows how to sit and wait for his food and treats! He is also very affectionate and loves to shower you with kisses and even likes to sit on your lap!

Truly the whole package!!!

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.
