About Widget

Adoption Fee: $575

Widget and Boo came to Paws Rescue League as owner surrenders, when their owner could no longer aford their care. 

Base on the vet paperwork that was transfered into us, Widget and Boo were quite healthy 6 year old Yorkies. Boo has a birth defect called a soft pallet. It doesnt impede his health any way, but it does cause him to grunt (which is very endearing and cute). They were a few months overdue for some of their annual vaccines, and needed a new HWT. We had sent them both to the vet to get updated vet care, and health certificates for them. We discovered that Widget needed a dental, and then he ended up having 40 teeth removed. He was left wiith his 2 bottom K9S. Poor Widget is currently recovering from the surgery. We also learned Widget was lyme positive, so we began having him treated to cure the Lyme disease ( a round of antibiotics). 

 

Widget is available for adoption, he is neutered and is medically up to date. With his bad teeth being removed, the vets are not worried about any future dental issues, or health issues caused by dental issues. He was given a clean bill of health and is ready to find his furever home! 

Due to having many of his teeth removed he does need to eat softened kibble, or wet food. Aside from that Widget is perfecty healthy and a complete love bug. He loves attention and wants to be with his people all the time. He is good with children, but a quieter home is prefered for him. He can at times be the fun police and bark at a group of children running by. But if a few children are sitting there, he is more than happy to go say hello and introduce himself. He would do better in a home without other dogs, he does well with cats. He is crate trained, but prefers a dog bed or your lap. He is both pad trained and potty trained (he will potty outside).

Bit bit was born as the runt of her litter, and also with a disability. Vets believe mom may have sat on her too long after birth which caused her to have very limited use of her hind end/legs. Her owners had tried to care for her and get her vet care as much as they could and did all they could for Bit -Bit. They knew a rescue could do more for her and they began looking for a rescue to take her. They had reached out to over 20 different K9 rescues, none willing to help Bit-Bit. They tried for months, without luck. No longer able to care for her, they were out of options. They really didn’t want to bring her to animal control where she would be deemed “unadoptable” due to her disability and would be euthanized. But with no rescues willing to take her and no longer being able to provide the care and attention she needed, that was becoming their reality. They made a last attempt at looking for a rescue.  Paws Rescue League saw that post and reached out to the owner, and discussed Bit -Bit and decided we would take her. She deserves a chance at life and happiness, she deserves to be rescued. She is not damaged goods just because she has a disability… just like humans with disabilities matter, so do man’s best friends!  Welcome to rescue Bit-Bit! Bit-Bit needs an adopter or a foster who is able to work with special needs dogs, the rescue is working with Bit-Bit to help her gain muscle tone, and stability in her hind legs and we would need her adopter or foster to continue with her physcial therapy.  Bit bit gets along with other dogs, with cats and with kids, despite her disabilitly and limitations she is a very happy girl. Bit-Bit likes to potty outside, but its very hard for her to hold her bladder. We are seeing if physical therapy and/or medications can help Bit-Bit her with that. Aside from that minor issue, she is a lovable little bit! Who desperatly wants a family of her own, who is willing to give her the help and care that she needs.  show less

But this does not affect his health from what were told by his vets.  Aside from that Boo is perfecty healthy and a complete love bug, toy obsessed, happy go lucky little guy.  He likess attention and enjoys being around his people, but he is PERFECTLY content just playing with his toys too! He is very good with children, and playing with them with his toys. He would do better in a home without other dogs, he does well with cats. He is crate trained,but rather a dog bed. He is both pad trained and potty trained (he will potty outside). show less

Dolly hails from Puerto Rico originally. She was brought to the states, by someone who inteneded to keep her, she was then rehomed to another family, who rehomed her about a month after taking her in. The third family she was with gave her to a family friend, who then posted her on Craigslist/Facebook to rehome. One of our foster volunteers decided to take her in and ask the rescue if we would take her. We have agreed to take her into rescue, get her veting up to date, and ensured she was healthy for adoption. She is a local surrender, meaning our rescue obtained her in CT. Dolly is currently in a foster home, with a large dog, a medium sized puppy, and a small dog. She is a bit afraid of the larger dogs, but does very well with the smaller dog. She is not aggressive whatsoever, when she is scared she will slink away to her crate for safety. She likes to meet new people, and will give kisses. She is a small sweet 18lbs mini aussie/kelpie mix.  Dolly will chase cats so no kitties for her, we suggest children 10 years and up or children who are dog savvy, as Dolly can be afraid at times, due to not having proper stabilization/home life, she is unsure in some situations on how to react. She has never once reacted in a way that was aggressive. We suggest older kids for her comfortability, as we dont want her to be nervous in her new home. She is good with other dogs, but can be afaid of larger dogs. Crate trained, and house broken, but can and will have accidents during the first week in a new home until she learns the routine. Dolly has a lot of energy, she is a small one year old dog, who has spent the majority of her short life without adequate exercise. She would love a home with a fenced in back yard so she can run and play, she would also make a great running buddy. She is sweet and compact enough to be an adventuring dog! show less

Duke was saved from a kill shelter. His prior owner had dumped him at animal control with his bone. Duke had no idea what was happening, and he held on to his bone, as the only small piece of familiarity, and comfort. Duke didnt realized from the moment he was walked into the building that a timer started ticking. Dogs who are surrendered to the shelter that we saved Duke and others from, only have 24 hours until they are euthanized - for space. The communities, and shelters are so overwhelmed, and they have to take stray dogs in. They do not have the capacity to keep up with the enormous amount of unwanted and abandoned dogs. So dogs who are dumped by their owners, are the first to be euthanized.  Luckily for Duke, Paws Rescue League saw him, and made arrangemts to save him. Duke was picked up and placed in a TN foster home, was fully vetted, and cleared for adoption. He arrives in New England on 07/02/2022, and will be ready for his furever family! Duke is crate trained, potty trained, he knows his basic commands, sit, and lay down. He is good with other dogs, we are unsure about cats, as hes not been cat tested yet. He is good with people but we suggest older children 10 years and up.  Duke is an active dog, true to his breed, he is a sweet dog and aims to please his owners. He cant wait to be in a home where he is loved and cared for, and never dumped again. show less
