Arlo NEEDS A NEW ENGLAND FOSTER!  He needs a hail mary, before he is returned back to TN.  Arlo has been searching for his furever home for over a year now, and he does not understand why other dogs are getting adopted, but not him :( We are a smaller rescue, that is NOT  backed/funded by the governmemt, we are not sponsored by large corporations,l and we have never received a grant. Our rescue runs on small donations from individuals and our adoption donations. We are a foster based rescue, which means we DO NOT have a physical location to house dogs who don't find a foster or adoptive home. If we DO NOT have anyone to take a dog in, we have to send them back to TN.  We are a volunteer run organization, each person in the rescue is a volunteer. Arlo is a YOUNG dog, at 2 years old. He had a hard life, where he was never loved or cared for. It evident in his behaviors when we got him into rescue that he had no idea how to dog. Arlo had done amazing in the 6 months we have had him in rescue, even with set backs he has shown us time and time again, that he tries his best to learn and understand.  Arlo was with us in TN for 5 weeks before coming to New England, Arlo spent 6 days a week at doggy day care, and did wonderful! With dogs of all ages, sizes, genders and breeds.He was basically an over grown puppy. He was eager to meet all people, with a friendly and excited hop! He worked on his basic commands and learned how to sit, and was housebroken. He made his way to New England and was placed in a foster home with a dog and a cat, and he was doing wonderfully. Until one day he played a little roughly with the cat. The cat WAS NOT HURT. It was him just trying to play, but because he is so much bigger than his feline friends he should go to a home with no cats.  **NOVEMBER 2022** Arlo was adopted into a family. A couple of months later, Arlo began displaying signs of behavioral issues that were unfortunately unable to be worked with. He was taken to training in which the trainer mentioned it would take more time for him. We had taken him back at this time. Arlo was placed in another foster home. We let the foster know hes a rough player, he's young, and he needs some work. He is not good at reading cues from other dogs and is possessive with toys.  He was doing well with his foster brother for the first 2 months he was there. On Saturday, January 14th, Arlo went to a 5 hour adoption event, with a bit of a car ride to and from the event. Events are highly stimulating for a dog - It raises their cortisol levels, and without decompression, that cortisol continues to build and build until a dog will react. Sadly, after the event, he went home, and was given a toy ( as a reward for being a good boy at the event), and his foster brother was also given a toy. With cortisol levels high, stressed from the event, and he can already be a bit toy possesive, (like kids, dogs DO NOT understand that I have a toy, and my friend has a toy, they just want the one the other one has. Arlo went to get the toy, from his foster brother, and Arlo had accidently bit his foster brother trying to get the toy. We can list Arlo as "Not good with other dogs", but thats is ignoring the root of the problem, and cutting his chances of finding a home in half. He is good with other dogs, great with many, but until he learns how to dog, and how to read cues from the other dog in the home, toys should be given only when separately. Arlo has bounced from house to house to house, never getting the chance to really settle in. He never gets to the part where he feels at home ( both his past adopter and last foster had him under 3 months, 3 months is the time it takes for a dog to feel completely comfortable in their home, and feel at home). With being moved before settling in his leads a dog to never truly feeling comfortable and confident in their home.  What ARLO NEEDS: He needs an experienced dog owner, He needs someone who has some experience with toy possessivness, and/or rescource gaurding, ( Arlo does not gaurd anyone or anything, excpet having an incident over a toy once), a family who will give him TIME, and continue to work with him on his training. No cats, No small pets like rodents, birds, he does have a high prey drive ( he loves to watch birds and squirels from the window) No small children, Arlo loved children but he jumps, and has a lot of energy and can unintententionally knock a small child over).  EITHER NO, other dogs in the home, OR a dog whose energy MATCHES Arlos - ONLY IF THE ADOPTER HAS EXPERIENCE the breed and (TOY POSSESSIVNESS). A fenced in back yard, where he has a place to run around and play safely. Arlo is really a good dog, and very smart, he learns quickly, and he is a true sweet heart of a dog, and in the right home he could be a wonderful dog and make a wonderful companion. He is smart, housebroken, crate trained, sweet, and playful, and wants to do his best. He just needs the right home, and the right guidance to get him there.  Arlo's history when we saved him: We saved Arlo from a kill shelter, he was picked up as a stray and brought to Animal Control, he was given 3 days for his current owner to claim him (if he had an owner), or find a new adopter, or be saved by a rescue. Paws Rescue League works hard to save many dogs facing this situtation. Healthy, young good dogs are euthanized for space, as Animal Control needs to respond to calls about strays, so if they are full of dogs that no one claims, or adopts they would be unable to pick up any other dogs. We as well as the local Humane Society, and a few other rescues, work tirelessly to save these innocent dogs lives, who want nothing more than to be loved. Arlo is a bright light of happiness and joy! Even when in the scary shelter where he was unsure where he was or what would happen, he was trusting of everyone, and was as wiggly as a worm, and a huge smile on his face. He was just beaming with positivity. To think this beuatiful light could be extinguished soley because he was taken up a kennel is awful. Arlo was temperament tested, and taken out of the shelter and placed in a TN foster home, where he got lots of love, and affection, and went to the vet for a physical exam, and HWT, neutered and vaccinated. Arlo is currently in his CT foster home, and he is very much a Husky Shepard mix! You have never met a sweeter, more loving and happy dog. Arlo is truly a wiggle butt! He wags his tail with such happiness his whole body wags, it is the cutest thing, then add his huge happy smile! He is truly a great dog, who loves everyone and has never met a stranger ( everyone is a friend).  Arlo is a male,  White swiss shepard/husky mix, who weighs about 38lbs. When he was picked up by Animal Control is was very clear he was very under weight and malnourished. His ideal weight should be about 50-55lbs. He is not a fan of the crate, after his adoption and return, he has picken up on house breaking amazingly well, our guess is he spent much of his short life on his own, outside, and eager to meet and interact with people. Arlo is good with other dogs, he is too rough and too much for cats, he is good with children, we suggest older children as he is still learning all "indoor manners", and how to be the best FURbaby! Arlo is still working on his training to be a dog, and learn how to communicate with other dogs. Arlo does have at times have a  hard time sharing toys, or understanding that he cant have a toy, and needs someone who can help him work on that, or keep toys up and away when other dogs are around.  Arlo just needs someone willing to give him time and understanding. show less

Boogie is one of 11 puppies born to Momma Sally. Sally was saved from the KILL SHELTER in the middle of October 2023. She was heavily pregnant about to burst. Sally gave birth to 11 healthy puppies the next day. Whom we named the Nightmare Before Christmas litter, as they arrived JUST before Halloween, and they would be ready for their FURever homes JUST before Christmas!  Boogie is a sweet, playful, happy pup, she will turn 8 weeks old on 12/03/2023!  She and her siblings are very young puppies, who have their whole lives ahead of them! They are looking for families to love them, and show them about the world. Boogie is not yet housebroken, but has been working on crate training, but she is still VERY young, and will need an adopter to train her. Boogie loves all people, dogs, cats, and kids! Her momma Sally is about 40lbs, we expect these pups to grow to be about that size as well, a medium size. If you're interested in one of these darling pups, please submit an application! We process applications in the order in which we receive them. From Boogie's current foster: "Boogie is a natural leader. She’s always trying to start playtime, loves to play tug-of-war, and is the center of attention. She likes to do her own thing, she’ll try and drag her sister Oogie into her antics but even if no one is following, she’ll still lead. Boogie is a HOOT!" show less

Cruz was born to momma Darla on 09/29/2023.  Darla was found as a stray heavily pregnant, large efforts were made to locate her owners to no avail. A wonderful woman took Darla to the vet for scans, to find out how far along and how many babies she should expect her to deliver. Its safe to know the number of babies to make sure all are delivered safely, and none get stuck inside mom, which is deadly for the baby, and mom.  Darla had her 11 darling babies 2 weeks after being picked up off the streets in NC.   Sadly at only a few days old one of the babies passed away, and a few days after that, a second baby passed away. Darla has 9 surviving pups, who are all gorgeous pooches and are ready for their FURever homes! They are young enough that they will adapt to any animals, and people in their homes. Like toddlers, 8 week old puppies will learn what you teach them!  These pups have been fostered in a home with small children, dogs (small and large), and cats.  Cruz has the cutest curly tail and wrinkly forehead!  From Cruz's New England foster: "Meet Cruzie, this sweet lovable pup is definitely part of the key club and other giving back clubs that are offered. He is the one to let you know he needs to go out. He’s a lover, not a fighter and loves people and being pet!" show less
