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

Boo and Widget 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, Boo and Widget 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.   Boo is available for adoption, he is neutered and is medically up to date, and HW, Lyme negative. He was given a clean bill of health and is ready to find his furever home!  Due to his soft pallet, he does make (similar to snore sounds) when hes excited, and his body creates slighlty more mucous than the average dog. 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

Daffodil was found dumped in the woods on a mountain, with her mom April, and 3 siblings Lilly, Peter Rabbit, and Peep. A civilian found a puppy running across a dirt road and they followed the pup into the woods where they found 4 puppies, and a mom dog who were all starving, they had no food, their bones were visible, and the puppies ( estimated to be 9-10 weeks old), were trying to nurse from mom but she had no milk. The puppies were sick, and weak. They were found on Easter morning, at 1:00am. We were sent the information and reached out to the finder who took them home. We had a volunteer pick them up and take them to the ER vet that sunday morning to make sure they did not have parvovirus. Lucky for the pups they did not have the deadly parvo virus. But were filled with 4 different types of worms.  We got the puppies, and mom vaccinated, and dewormed multiple times. Momma April was spayed, and has already been adopted! These puppies are a mixed breed of dogs, we give our best educated guess as to each dogs breed, based on appearance, behaviors, and traits.  We believe they are probably mixed hound/Dacshund/terrier/lab Now its time for her 4 babies to find loving happy homes, where they will never be left out in the cold, or abandoned again ; 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

Life hasnt been easy for E.Cooper .. (He goes by Cooper). He had an owner once, but for years Cooper struggled with fur and skin issues, and the owner didnt know what to do to help him. Not being able to afford testing and treatment E.Cooper suffered to the point he had lost most of his fur, and his skin was beyond uncomfortable. E.Coopers prior owner dropped him off at a shelter and surrendered him, because he couldnt afford to have E.Cooper seen medically, and E.Cooper was in very rough shape. The shelter had E.Cooper see a vet, and he stayed with the vet for over a month, the vet put him on steroids, and antibiotics, as E.Cooper wasa, missing lots of fur and very itchy. He went through a few roaunds of antibiotics, medicated baths and testing to find out the cause of E.Coopers skin irritation. It was determined that E.Cooper was allergic to protien, and needs a special diet. He can only eat hydrolized food. E.Cooper was placed in the shelter, for adooption. Unfortunately for E.Cooper no one came to adopt him, he spent months waiting for someone to look his way and no one ever came to take him home. The cost of the food was just too much for anyone in the small community to afford. The shelter was at a loss, they know E.Cooper is a super sweet boy and deserved to live. The reached out to Paws Rescue League and asked if we could help. E.Cooper has a much better chance at finding a loving home who can care for him up North...   E.Cooper, is a sweet, gentle guy! He is estimated to be 5 years young, and looks to be a border collie, aussie shepard mix. His foster says he is an absolute delight, extremely well behaved, potty trained, crate trained,low energy, mild temperament. He will sleep on a dog bed all night too! When left uncrated, he doesnt mess with anything, or get into anything, never an in door accident had.  He likes other dogs ,but he is not a confident dog, and can be over stimulated with dogs who have high energy. Some dogs he does wonderful with, others he is good with but can get overwhelmed quickly and some dogs he just doesnt agree with (This is true for most dogs! Just like people, every dog is different, some we like, some we just dont gel with!). We have noticed that E.Cooper seems to do best with Small, submissive independant female dogs. They seem to be the one type that E.Cooper never has an issue with. We suggest that E.Cooper should have proper slow intros, like crate and rotate with all dogs that he meets, just to give E.Cooper the chance to feel more comfortable and confident. E.Cooper is ok with small pets, like guinea pigs,rabbits and hamster he is unbothered by them. We do not think he would do great with cats, (But we are not 100% sure, hes quite the laid back dog, and think in the right home, with the right adopter he could do fine).  He enjoys spending time with people, he was also good with the children he met, but we suggest older children who can respect a dogs space, since he can be nervous at times. He is a little stand off ish of older men, like his owner who took him to the shelter and treated him poorly. We dont know too much about his past, but his reaction to large men, with deep voices, immediately puts him in a scared/anxious state (Its not with all men, but with a few older gentleman he seemed unsure, while other gentleman he ran up and interacted with). He can be scared, anxious,stnadoffish if he is rushed into a situation he is not comfotable with, which is understandable, when a dog is forced into something that scares them, its quitte common for them to exhibit signs of discomfort, and fear. . This is why we are being very picky about where E.Cooper goes. He needs a patient adopter who wont rush him to face his fears, or rush interactions on him when hes not ready.  He gets startled by loud noises, or quick movemnents when he is in a stressful enviorment/unknown enviorment or if he is already scared. (But what dog isnt jumpy when they are scared?) This poor boy is just misunderstood, he had a meeting with an adopter recenty, but an interaction between him and their dog slightly bigger than him was forced within the first few minutes of meeting, (despite being told prior to the meeting that E.Cooper would need a slow intro over the course of a few days, before he would feel safe enough to interact with their dog.) and this stressed E.Cooper out. E.Cooper let everyone know he was uncomfortable with the situatuon, he will try to walk away, hang his head low, tuck his tail. Unltimately they chose not to adopt based off him not feeling comfortable with thier dog. If you have a dog who is E.Coopers size, or a little or a lot bigger, he needs SLOW intro to that dog. Crate and rotate for a few days, this way E.Cooper trusts you, and his enviorment before he interacts with a larger dog, this will give him more confidence and time to adjust. E.Cooper is currently being fostered with a Golden Ret. a Bichon Frise and a hound mix and E.Copper is doing wonferfully with all 3 dogs.    The vet in TN told the shelter that the only safe treat "cookie" for E.Cooper to eat, was MARSHMALLOWS...... We put a stop to that, not only do they hold absolutely no nutritional value, but they are loaded with sugar and cornsyrup which isnt good for any dog, and fat free marshmallows are TOXIC to dogs. E.Cooper, can safely have watermellon, apple, or green beans, squash, zuccini, cucumbers, pears, banannas, carrotts and Pumpkin. (He can also have grains, and plain greek yogurt) - for treats!   E.Cooper would make a family, or a single person a wonderful companion! He has the rest of his life ahead of him to make up for the pain and suffering hes had in the past.  show less

Stella is about a year and a half old Plott hound/Cur mix. She is a sweet girl, who can be shy at first. She is Spayed, and UTD on all her required vaccines, and monthly preventatives. She is around 55lbs (at her last appt), and considered a large sized dog. Stella loves her people and loves to be around them whenever she can. She would make an excellent hiking partner. Stella would do best in a home with an experienced adopter, and in a single pet household. She is good with people, and children over 10 years old. She can be nervous around younger children.   Paws Rescue League first learned of Stella around March/April of 2021, her original owners had dumped her at the vet and never came back for her. The vet called Paws Rescue League, (she is the same vet we use for our rescue dogs.) and asked if we would take Stella, we made arrangemtns to take in the then 9 month old Stella. We were later notified that a client of the vet asked to adopt her. Stella was adopted to the client, and now about 7 months later she is being surrendered. We dont know much about her life between birth to 9 months old or why her family left her at the vet and never returned. She was described as a very sweet and loving pup by the vet.  With her second owner, she was not getting adequate exercise, or mental stimulation, and also did not walk her on leash or crate train her, because of the lack of proper exercie she has become stressed in her home and the adopters have decided they arent able to take care of her properly. Stella is used to being given up on, we wont give up on her! She deserves to find a family who will love her and care for her, and provide daily exercise and continue with her training,  show less
