Darla arrived to Connecticut in mid-May, just before giving birth to 7 adorable pups - 2 of the puppies have been scooped up but we have 5 precious little ones growing and getting bigger every day.  

Foster family is having a great time with these babies and is getting to know more and more about their little personalities - Mom is absolutely a doll as well and may be available for adoption when her puppies have left her - foster family adores her and are considering keeping - if she can stay away from their chickens!!!

Babies will be able to go home after their first round of vaccines, approximately 4th week in July - adopters will be responsible for the remaining series of puppy vaccines and rabies - they are too little to spay/neuter - when they are of age, you will be provided with “partner” veterinarians who will do the surgery at our expenses (an option to have done at your own vet is also available).

As for the babies - here’s what we have on them so far -

BROWNIE COOKIE- Male, black with white stomach, medium sized male puppy. Medium active, likes to sleep, playful when awake, more aloof.
OREO COOKIE - Female, black with white stomach and mostly white paws, medium sized. Very attention seeking, very active, calm and confident.
SUGAR COOKIE - Female, soft brown. Smaller sized, very calm and cuddly, not as playful, relaxed, seems attention to cuddle and snooze with someone.
GINGERBREAD COOKIE - Male, soft brown with black face. Largest puppy of the group, loves attention, playful, plays rough by tugging, very active and fast moving puppy. Loves to rough house.
SNICKERDOODLE - Male, reddish brown with black face. Larger Male puppy, very attention seeking, moderately playful, but mostly calm. My daughter would like to keep this puppy.
Breed: Labrador Retriever/Terrier  (we have mom - dad is unknown)
Weight: 3 lbs as of 6/26/2019
Spayed/Neutered: Too young - Spay/Neuter Contract will be required and strictly enforced
Vaccinations: First vaccines at 7 weeks of age (approx. 7/17/2019)
Heartworm: Too young (testing is done at 6 months of age)
Houstrained:  Not a chance

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 review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself!!!

Puppy Donation:  $525.00  (includes spay/neuter surgery to be arranged by Paws New England at a partner veterinarian in several locations throughout New England).  If adopter wishes to have his/her own veterinarian perform the surgery, $100 will be reimbursed upon proof of spay/neuter.

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.
