Maybelle has lived a whole life at just 5 months old!

She was hanging around a Walmart near Tupelo, Mississippi, trying to get inside. They were pushing her away with brooms and no matter how hard she tried she couldn’t get indoors. The poor baby was covered in mange, her ears were bleeding and no one seemed to care about her.

The animal control officer took her back to the shelter and one of our rescue partners picked her up right away and took her home.

She has recovered quite well from her mange and her coat is coming in wonderfully. She’s a delightful little dog who gets along with everyone and ever dog - her bestie is a Great Dane in her foster home.

She’s been loving her foster mom’s grandchildren. She sleeps in bed with them and is house-trained. She does NOT love her crate and will tell you all about it.

She’s ready to head to New England and meet her new family.

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.


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.
