Harber & McKinney have arrived in New England and are just adorable - they are fostering with one little boy and other dogs and loving them all!! See for yourself - https://youtu.be/F18SOPva8yg
These two babies, McKinney and Harber, were literally found on the side of the road in Memphis - a wonderful young lady was driving with friends and noticed them, not sure what she was seeing at first. She turned around and went back and it took her quite some time to get them to come her so she could get them in the car - it was freezing cold and they were obviously hungry and cold. She put the word out on Facebook and we saw it and sent a message - the rest is history.
They arrived today to one of our partner vets in Memphis and have started their vaccines, deworming and starting some good food - they are estimated at approx. 12 weeks now and the consensus is they will be good size pups!
We hope to move them to New England the weekend of January 17th to foster care and then their adoptive homes.
They cannot be adopted together - every behaviorist we work with has advised that puppies from the same litter should not be adopted together as it often results in behavior issues, difficulty in training etc.
Age: 13 weeks
Spayed/Neutered: Too young - Spay/Neuter Contract will be required and strictly enforced
Vaccinations: Up to date
Heartworm: Too young (testing is done at 6 months of age)
Houstrained: Not usually
Puppy Donation: $500.00 (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
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!!!
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.
