This sweet handsome boy is Gideon, a truly great pup!

Gideon was found at a park alone with nothing but a harness. He was posted on social media and around the neighborhood, but no one came forward to claim him…maybe a good thing??? PAWS was made aware of his situation and happily accepted him into rescue.

Gideon has a good amount of puppy energy, but will rest quietly in his crate. He is crated when left alone in the house for his safety. This boy is working how to walk on a leash, continued training with any new adopter is always needed. He is house trained and crate trained. Please remember he is still a 8 month old so continued basic training and socialization is really important.

He gets along fine with the other dogs in his foster home. He does well with the 2 toddlers in the home. We do think he may have some working breed in him as he does have slight herding tendencies. He needs a home that will give him an outlet to get his energy out by running in the yard, doggie daycare or a few walks. A exercised dog is a happy dog.

Let’s find this abandoned boy a truly great active home that will cherish him as a beloved family member.

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.
