Dear Rose, a puppy with a sweet, playful nature and such eagerness to learn.

She was rescued with her two siblings Dorothy and Blanche - almost immediately upon rescue from frigid temperatures (they were outside) they developed parvo virus - Rose and Blanche survived and have no residual effects.
Sadly Blanche was the smallest and she just couldn’t hang on - we are so glad Rose and Dorothy made it to carry on in true Golden Girls style.

Rose is the perfect mix of energy and calm. When active, she has a medium energy level. She enjoys long walks but doesn’t need them everyday. She enjoys playing, learning fetch, and running in the backyard, but also is happy to take a nice long nap.
She loves attention, belly rubs and cuddling up on your lap.
Since Rose likes to be near her people, she is not too fond of being alone. Foster is working on her independence and she has been left alone for up to an hour in her crate, or in a gated off area.

Rose is almost potty trained. She can hold it for a number of hours and is getting good about letting you know when she needs to go out.
This girl also happily goes into her crate at bedtime and throughout the day for naps. She quiets down quickly at night, but does get up early in the morning.

Rose is working on basic commands and already learning Sit and Come. This girl loves to please so treats and praise make training easy with this sweet girl.

Rose has enjoyed playing with other dogs and meeting dogs while on walks. She’s tentative at first but warms up quickly. She’s never shown aggression toward other dogs.
She hasn’t interacted with a cat in her New England foster home, but she lived with cats in her southern foster home.
Rose now lives with 13 and 15 year old kids and enjoys playing with them.

This precious pup is ready to be a part of a loving and welcoming family and be the cuddle companion you never knew you needed.

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.
