If you are ready for a great new canine addition to your household, Petunia is definitely your girl.

This black beauty was found being given away on the side of the road for free. One of our southern rescuers became aware of this situation and immediately rescued her so she would not end up in the wrong hands.
We believe her to be Lab/hound mix.

Petunia is now local in New England!!
Since arriving, she is doing so very well.
She rarely has accidents in the house. She knows to go outside to do her business by going to the door or whines.
She patiently waits and takes her treats gently (as u can see here):

This girl plays well with her foster siblings and would love to have a brother or sister to look up to and play with.

Petunia is learning sit, drop, quiet, no, and come…..so very eager to understand new doggie skills!!
Leash training is also in process.

This girl sleeps thru the night and has the cutest gentle snore. She’s not a huge fan of the crate, but since she has not had any accidents in the house, foster mom has let her be on her own for 2–3 hours and she is just fine.

She likes to chew on her toys and will entertain herself with her toys while the others sleep. She is very quiet while foster mom does her work and will nap.

Petunia would love a family that is committed to a puppy and looking forward to giving her the continued training and TLC so she will keep on with growing into a truly amazing dog.

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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - 

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.
