Sweet adorable Barnabas is as cute as they come and will give his adopter and family his whole heart! He loves much bigger than his tiny 5 pound puppy frame.

Sadly, this boy ended up at a shelter an all alone puppy, but he found a wonderful heart in his foster momma and some feline foster siblings!
Although he loves his feline buddies, this sweet boy longs for a great canine pup sibling and zoom partner for life.

We expect this cutie to be a medium sized adult. He absolutely loves to sit in his persons lap, cuddle up and take a nap, help you work on the computer (he LOVES to Zoom), help you vacuum - anything you are doing, he can do, too.

Barnabas seems to have a fearless personality and a happy confidence.
He loves other animals, has never met a stranger and wants to be friends with every person and every animal he meets. He is a smart busy boy and would love to be a take me everywhere pup and has just the right personality mix to be your coffee shop or hike adventure partner.

Apply fast, this adorable little nugget won’t last long!

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.
