"BELLA"
Shepherd/Beagle (Best guess!), 1 1/2 years, Spayed Female
Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Hi - I'm Bella! I am very sweet and love my people, but I'm also shy. I like to take it a little slower and get to know people before I show my true sweetness! As soon as I feel comfortable, I like to lean on you for snuggles and give you a smile with my under bite (people seem to think it's cute!) I will also greet you with lots of tail wags!

Because I can be scared of new people and loud noises, my foster mom takes me to a great trainer to learn some ways to help me. I am learning that scary people and situations now seem to lead to treats, so maybe they are not so scary! People that I meet on walks in my neighborhood say that I seem more confident each time they meet me, and my foster mom is trying to introduce me slowly to new situations.

In my southern and New England foster homes, I have lived with other dogs and get along with them well. I have also gone to a doggie daycare and am doing well with the people and dogs there. If I don’t go to daycare, I get a walk at lunch while my parents are at work.

I am young and playful and like to play with my foster sister in the yard and with dogs at daycare, Because I am young and active, I will need a home that can provide me with exercise every day.

I am petite at about 33 lbs and like to sit like a lady with my paws crossed. I look like a shepherd/Beagle, but everyone seems to have a different guess as to what I am. My foster parents joke that I look and run a little like a deer! Everyone says I am cute though and very sweet!

I have a lot of love to give and hope you'll consider me for your home!

"IVORY"
Carolina Dog Mix, 10 months, Spayed Female

Hi there, woof woof, I am so glad you are looking at my page! If you wondering, yes, my eyes are two different colors, and I almost always have one ear up and one ear down - it is my signature look! My name is Ivory; sometimes my foster mom calls me Ivy for short. She says I have a ton of personality and potential. I am not sure what that means; I just know that life is not as nearly as scary as it used to be, and now I wake up each morning a happy girl, ready to enjoy the day. I love to play in the yard with my doggie friends, and I could learn to love you too, if you give me a chance!

Ivory is a very special little girl. She and her sister Ebony (also with PAWS) were rescued from a southern shelter before coming to PAWS. Both Ebony and Ivory were very frightened of humans when they came to PAWS. Ivory is the more curious and outgoing one of the two, and is making steady progress in her foster home.

Ivory is sweet, active, inquisitive, and super-smart. She is housetrained and crate trained. She barks or paws at the door when she wants to go out in the yard. She would do very well in training - she has already done some basic clicker training and she learns very quickly. She loves playing with other dogs of all sizes! She is learning to enjoy going for walks in the neighborhood, but is still afraid of unfamiliar people and places. Ivory would do best in a home with a fenced yard and other dogs that she can play with; being with other dogs helps her feel safe and comfortable.

Ivory has spent more of her life neglected and unsocialized - we know with a loving and patient home she will blossom into the confident dog she was meant to be!!

"MOMMA DILL"
Pit Bull Terrier Mix, 5-6 years, Spayed Female
Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Have you met Momma Dill? She is a stunner with her beautiful tiger stripe coat and creamy white mixed in. She arrived in New England from Tennessee. She was found wandering the streets, very pregnant and getting food anywhere she could. We don't know how long she spent on the streets, but she was very relieved and thankful to be taken in.

Her southern foster mom was very surprised at how quickly she became accustomed to the routine and how quickly they bonded. Momma loves to follow her foster mom everywhere; she has a very loving disposition. She loves to give kisses and is just an affectionate girl!! Momma greets everyone with a wagging tail. It was no surprise that she was an excellent mom to her puppies. She even took in another pup that arrived from another litter! She treated that puppy like he was her own and saved his life.

Momma loves to take walks. Her northern foster mom reports that she has excellent leash manners! Since she has arrived she has already learned sit and comes when her name is called. She is working on shake and other basic commands- we are sure she will pick them up quickly! Momma has a bit of separation anxiety and is working diligently with her foster mom to correct that. Her foster mom says that Momma is just the sweetest and most laid back dog- she doesn't even bark! This sweet girl has been a great mom, now it is her turn to be spoiled and cherished!!
