Ahava means “love” in Hebrew and this dog surely lives up to her name. She’s absolutely gorgeous as well.

Ahava was a stray in Memphis and landed at the Memphis Animal Shelter on the euthanization list. Thank goodness a rescuer in the area scooped her out of there and we took over her care from there.

This girl is settling into her New England foster home and her happy personality is emerging!

Ahava is around two years old but acts like a 70-pound puppy!! She has lots of energy and will need regular exercise or play time with a dog friend to keep her happy. She likes to chew so she’ll also need plenty of chew toys to keep her busy.

This beautiful girl lives with both kids and dogs in her foster home. While she is submissive with dogs and very affectionate with kids, we recommend kids 12 and over for her forever home.
She is also a bit leery of new people but after only a week of living in her foster home, she has really bonded, so we expect her to do the same with her adopter….time and patience is always the key:)

We have found that Ahava likes the rabbits in her foster home a little too much, so a home without small critters (including cats) would be best.

Ahava is learning not to jump on people when greeting and she can be mouthy in a playful way.
Like all dogs, she will need training in her new home and that requirement will be part of the adoption contract with PAWS.

Ahava is great in the car, and she is house and crate trained. She is also easy to walk on the leash and does not pull.

This gal is looking forward to all the adventures life has to offer – she’s definitely active and wants her people to be the same!
She’s such a soulful pup who will make a great addition to the right family, couple or person.

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.
