If you are looking for a puppy with that special extra something then Holland is for you!!

Holland and her siblings were rescued from the streets of Memphis. Our southern rescue, All 4’s, had been feeding both momma and puppies for quite some time. Mom suddenly went missing. She was not able to be located, so they asked PAWS if we would take the pups into rescue. Needless to say, we obliged.
All of the puppies were well socialized in loving southern foster homes.

Holland has now traveled to New England and is just thriving.

She’s got a cheerful and spunky attitude towards life and her forward flop ears are just too cute. Get ready for adorable puppy hiccups and sometimes, when she is extra sleepy, she makes a sound like a baby dinosaur when she yawns:)

Holland is well on her way to being fully house trained and sleeps through the night in her crate with minimal fuss.

This gal is very smart and already knows Sit, Stay, Down, and Touch. She will even sit by the training treats to say that she wants to practice and learn more things!
She is already a dignified lady and doesn’t jump up on people or counter surf because her foster mom told her not to. She seems to be the kind of dog who only needs to be told the rules a few times and can quickly learn the difference between your toys and hers.

Holland is fearless when it comes to meeting dogs of all sizes and her persistently cheerful attitude has changed her foster brother from a non-cuddlier to a begrudging one. Even he can’t say no when she wiggles over to him and plops down for a nap!
She is passionate about playing tug of war, peanut butter, and finding you on the couch so she can fall asleep in your lap.
If you’re busy, don’t worry, she’ll sit and wait for you to finish what you’re doing and then lead you to the couch where you can give her the cuddles she deserves.

This gal shares her bones and toys with other dogs with all the optimism of a morning person saying “the more the merrier!”

Her foster mom can easily envision her as an adventure dog but be warned, she’ll probably hog the sleeping bag!

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.
