Fostering in Easton MA!!
Greta & Vienna - what can we say - we had them as babies 13 years ago -adopted to a lovely couple who have had them all this time. Sadly, a devastating medical illness in the family required them to return the girls as they simply cannot care for them any longer.
Obviously right now they are a bit confused - they have landed in a loving foster home who is going to help them adjust together and start on a weight loss program!!
Former mom reports they are good girls - both are pretty much housetrained but when winter arrives it becomes a bit more difficult. They love each other but do well around other dogs. The have been well cared for and are up to date on all vaccines and appear healthy.
For now, we are looking for a home for them that perhaps is similar to the one they came from - quiet, adults and not too busy - they are okay with children but one of the girls if awoken and is startled will nip so just don’t wake her up!!!
These photos are from today (8/22).
Name: GRETA & VIENNA - BONDED PAIR
Age: 13 years 10 months (approx)
Vaccinations: Up to date
BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS:
Good with Children: Yes - older preferred - nervous when woken up without warning, will nip.
Good with Dogs: Yes - okay with them - we think they’d prefer a home where they get all the attention but will consideer
Good with Cats: Not sure but can’t imagine at 13 years old it’s a big concern.
Adoption Donation: 250.00 - for the pair (this donation will go to one of our other dogs in need of veterinary attention)
Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog. The number of individual inquiries is overwhelming and we are finding it difficult to respond to each one. We cannot guarantee you will receive a timely response.
Paws New England is a rescue, not a shelter, and as such we do not have our dogs housed in one location - they are in foster homes both in New England and in our southern foster homes. If you’re interested in a specific dog, please complete a short online application and you will receive a reply within 48 hours so you can ask questions.
At present, if a dog is listed on our website, the dog is considered still available HOWEVER, may have applications that have come in before yours but it’s still too early to know if any are a good match; therefore we encourage you to apply.
NOTICE WITH REGARD TO LOCATION OF DOGS: Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue. We have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, and Arkansas) and New England (not necessarily in the state of Rhode Island). You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.
Dogs transported to New England are done so at a fee of $150.00 paid directly to the transporting company by Paws New England; no additional transport costs are responsibility of adopter. This fee is included in the adoption donation.
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 dog will help others in need.
All known information about the animal is listed above. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
Paws New England abides by the dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.
