Three GORGEOUS now 4 month old puppies who landed in a Pizza Parlor - no kidding! MaMa Mia Pizza in Benton Arkansas found these three puppies in their back fenced in area, no mom in sight, obviously dumped.

They’ve been fostering with an amazing foster who owns a doggie daycare so they’ve been socialized with other dogs, humans, etc.

They have some of their adult teeth so we think these pups won’t get to be much more then 25-30 lbs - a perfect size.

Papa John - 14lbs, approx age is 14 weeks, Lab mix but his coat is starting to get wavy and so is his tail, plus a little fluff on ears, very loving and loves attention. He is a little bit more laid back than his sisters, is good with other dogs of all sizes. Typical puppy that loves toys, will find things to chew. Doing great on crate training and is learning to potty outside.

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.
