Big paws - really big paws - we aren’t sure but there may be some Great Dane in those there paws!!!

Cochin arrived to Connecticut this past weekend and he’s fitting right in! He’s loving his new human siblings and especially loves his 4-legged friend!

He’s a typical wonderful inquisitive fun puppy - his former foster was amazing at house training and crate training and he’s got both almost down 100%.

One of our dedicated southern rescues had been feeding mama the puppies’ mama Rosa and monitoring her precious family. Extreme cold temps were on the horizon and they became concerned. Mom was finally humanely trapped on a cold night. A foster was already in place to house her and her eight puppies. These babes went from freezing to toasty in no time and are just thriving in their foster home. They are being socialized with other dogs and middle aged children and doing fine.

Adoption fee also includes transport fee.

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.
