These precious puppies, Poppy and Patrick were being given away on the side of the road for free. One of our southern rescuers became aware of this situation and immediately rescued them so they would not end up in the wrong hands.
We believe them to be Lab/Hound mixes.

They are typical 6 month old puppies. They have not met a toy(or treat) they don’t like. They are learning basic commands. They are crate trained and 99% housebroken. They are both 30 lbs, so we think they are going to be bigger dogs.

Poppy and Patrick are being fostered together in their New England foster home and doing just great!

Poppy is very outgoing and has never met a stranger she didn’t like. She will bring you her toys and make you play with her. She has absolutely no concept of personal space and wants to be as close to you as possible….but that’s ok with us!!!

Poppy would love a family that is committed to a puppy and looking forward to giving her the training and TLC so she can grow into a truly amazing dog!

If you are ready for a great new addition apply today!

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.
