Despite everything that Babs has been through- she greets every person with a wagging tail and a wiggly butt. You’d never know that she once lived a life of abuse and neglect. Those days are behind her, and thanks to our friends at Happy K9 in Somerville, MA, and PAWS New England, Babs is onto bigger and better things!! Babe is a 3-4 year old spayed female, Pocket Pittie, 35 pounds, UTD on all shots, Heart Worm negative - on prevention. Good with dogs, However prefers to be the only dog, but is attending doggie play day. No cats.

Babs is a gorgeous pocket pittie at just 35 pounds. She absolutely loves people and her most favorite activity is cuddling on the couch. She enjoys going for walks, playing fetch and chasing balls. Babs continues to work on leash walking and has had training at Happy K9. The great folks there will be providing post adoption assistance for this great gal as they are truly invested in her success! Babs would make a wonderful companion for an active family! She is perfectly crate trained and house broken. Now she just needs a family to call her own!

"MAMA"
American Bulldog mix, 4.5 years, Spayed Female
Mass Humane Society - Partnership & Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Currently Fostering in New England!! Meet Mama Amorina. Or as her foster calls her, Mama.

She’s a beautiful american bulldog mix who is 4.5 years old, spayed, all shots up to date, Heart Worm negative, about 50 pds and microchipped. She is looking for her second chance at life. She comes to Paws from our sister rescue in TN, Robyns Nest. Mama was found in rural Tennessee in a rain culvert the morning after a big rain storm with her puppy in tow. A good samaritan attempted to search for their family, but unfortunately no one claimed them.

Mama has the sweetest disposition. We don’t know what her past is, but we know she holds no ill will towards anyone. She enjoys playing with other dogs, no cats and is good with kids. BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS Dogs: Mama is very friendly but cannot be left alone with a rambunctious playmate because of fear of re-injury.

Update: This past summer, Mama was romping with her canine friends in the yard and was injured. She was immediately brought to the emergency vet where it was discovered that she had a spinal injury that would require surgery. Supports of Robyn’s Nest and PAWS New England rallied behind Mama, and raised the funds required to get her the surgery she desperately needed. The surgery was completed without any complications and she moved to a foster home for recovery. Mama underwent intense physical therapy and laser therapy so that she could regain function of her hind legs and walk. Volunteers droves hours each day just so she could attend.

Many months after surgery and therapy, Mama has made an incredible recovery!! She does have a limp that makes her walk like a drunken lady. But we think that just makes her more adorable! Besides this, she has no other medical issues related to the injury. She is restricted from playing, and will be for the rest of her life, due to fear of re-injury. But that doesn’t bother Mama. She is happy being a lazy love bug.

It is believed that with continued physical therapy, Mama’s limp would decrease and her walking would improve. Mama would love to go to a home where she could continue her therapy, but anywhere with a warm bed for snuggling sounds just fine to Mama.

After all she has been through, she deserves a loving family to call her own. Mama charms everyone she meets instantly with her incredible personality. Some wonderful family is going to be lucky to call her theirs!!

"BELLA BOO"
Lab mix, 2 years, Spayed Female
Mass Humane Society - Partnership & Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Bella is an owner surrender that we are trying to save from going to our high kill shelter in Texarkana, AR. Her mom has taken a traveling job which keeps her on the road the majority of the time. Her dad has the new duty of working full time as well as being mom and dad to their children. He has said Bella must go because he cant take care of her and the household!

Miss Bella Boo or Bella “rina” as she’s sometimes called arrived in New Hampshire on 12/3. She is a Lab mix, 2 years old, 54 pounds, spayed, all shots UTD, Heart Worm negative on prevention, good with dogs, no cats. She is a friendly and playful and a sweet girl but a little anxious so she barks when she sees someone she doesn’t know. She warms up very quickly though and loves attention.

Bella is fostering with two small dogs and doesn't pay any attention to them but sleeps with them and her foster mom at night. She plays with her toys and runs around the house and may do well with another dog her size. She has some separation anxiety when her foster mom leaves so she must be crated. This may get better over time. She takes treats very gently but is not above trying to sneak in and take treats intended for others. She loves to go for walks but is just as happy snuggling on the couch. She’s food motivated which would make it easy to teach her anything you'd like. She already knows sit and give paw. She is ready to find her furever family!

She is a great dog that has met with unfortunate circumstances through no fault of her own. Her ideal home would be an active, loving home that includes lots of walks on her leash.
