FOSTER UPDATE -
Dolla is doing so well - she goes into her crate at night with a small treat and only takes a minute or so before she settles down and sleeps through the night. She loves our kids.
We’re working on house-training and she’s picking it up really quickly! She goes to the back door when she needs to go out.
Dolla is very curious and happy. She loves all the people she’s met, and even those she hasn’t met yet! When we are out for walks in the neighborhood she wants to stop and say hi to everyone. She adores her toys and playing with our resident pup.
Tulla & Dingle & Dolla - three great little black dogs who recently joined Paws New England.
They were recently roaming free around the mean streets of Memphis - they were hanging out around a “chicken place.” Volunteers in the area were able to trap each dig and we got them to the vet right away.
The pups were in relatively good health (probably eating chicken). They are all now in New England in foster homes and doing GREAT!! Super well adjust pups - loving the other dogs and after initial shyness super cuddly with their humans.
It seems they won’t be huge dogs - tall and lean - but we can’t guarantee anything of course. Seems all are doing well with housebreaking and crate great!!!

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.
