Sweet? Athletic? Intelligent? Polite? Cuddly? Well-rounded? Handsome? How is he still single?!
Meet Oats!

Oats is a ball of mush who loves to cuddle his humans and let them know he’s got everything under control! Ever vigilant and athletic, he’s the perfect companion. Oats has known love and kindness, but there’s one thing he is missing… His forever home!

We estimate Oats to be about four years old. He’s agile, smart, and polite – he will not ask for treats without gallantly offering you his paw first!

Being with his dog friends reduces his anxiety, especially when home alone. A home with another equally athletic, very confident dog is a must for Oats: no couch potatoes for this boy!

A fenced yard is also a requirement for this boy. He will bolt after squirrels and other small critters when outside. He also really enjoys his time outdoors, playing and running with his dog friends. He has had so many changes we do not want to take that away from him.

Cats? Who cares! Oats sure doesn’t – he’s lived in a home with two, and they didn’t bother him at all – or vice versa!

We don’t recommend little ones for this guy: he will happily tackle them and knock them over.

Oats don’t love crowds: they make him nervous. He would do best in a quiet home with not too much hustle and bustle

If this pup isn’t exercising, you can find this boy attached to his favorite person – and he’ll have no problem letting you know who that is!

We also have his DNA results from his past owner. 23% American Eskimo Dog
18% Labrador Retriever, 11% Beagle, 9% Plott Hound, 9% Chow Chow 23% and 9 more. He is one of a kind!

Are you THE ONE for him? He would love it if you were. He really hopes that wherever he lands, it’s his forever place.

Will you take his paw in forever home-matrimony

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.
