"SCRUFFY"
Schnauzer/Terrier mix, 11 years, Neutered Male
Mass Humane Society - Partnership & Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Scruffy is a neutered 11 years young Schnauzer - Terrier Mix, 19 pounds, UTD on all shots, Heart Worm negative and on prevention and is microchipped.

Scruffy (with Abagail) was surrendered by his owner in March of 2015 to a dog sanctuary in Tennessee. The owner was moving and could not take the dogs with him. What a tragedy for Scruffy and Abby, who found themselves displaced out of their forever home as seniors! Very quickly, the sanctuary staff realized that the boarding situation was too overwhelming for these pups, and they were moved to a foster home in TN, where they spent several months before Paws New England was informed of their plight and moved them North. They arrived in New England on January 30 to a new foster home.

Scruffy defies his age! While he is a senior and is very calm and laid-back for the most part, he does show some initial excitement when people visit, and he makes it a point to seek out attention from people. He loves to be walked daily and is very good on leash, but also loves an opportunity to occasionally run around in a fenced yard and protect his territory from squirrels.

Scruffy is very good with other dogs (after the initial introductions), no cats or kids. He is getting along fine with the 6 other dogs he is currently living with. Scruffy will lick and groom other k9 members of the household, but he probably would be happiest as an only dog or being adopted with Abby, his life-long companion. Sometimes, he can be grumpy over food or chew toys and is not eager to share with the other k9 members. Scruffy has decided that his bed is only for him if he’s there first, but he’ll happily join another dog that’s already on a bed.

This sweet senior deserves nothing less than a fantastic home and we’re determined to find that for him!!

"MYRNA"
Terrier/Border Collie mix, 8 years, Spayed Female
Mass Humane Society - Partnership & Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Fostering in New England!! MYRNA is a Terrier/Border Collie Mix (best guess), Spayed Female, 8 years old, about 46 pounds, UTD on all shots, Heartworm - Treated in March 2016 - NOW Negative.

Right eye limited sight due to birth defect, Residual minor heart/lung issues that do NOT require additional care or treatment, microchipped, No cats - OK with dogs, 7+ old kids may be ok - she is laid back.

I have not really had an easy time in life. I gave birth to so many litters of puppies and wasn't properly cared for. Then I ended on a very bad list at the Memphis Animal Shelter when I was spotted in the back room by a rescuer, who just had to take me out of there. But I was a sick girl, and this small rescue were not able to provide me with the all the vet care I needed. When PAWS found out about me, they actually wanted me into their rescue!! I then went to New England, where I was examined and treated by many vets and specialists. I now feel the best I ever have!!

My foster mom says I am very laid back, have a very calm personality and I get along with everyone!! I am living peacefully with 4 dogs, I ask for little…some affection, being petted, having a warm bed (or maybe a couch or human bed:) and a belly rub now and then. I never experienced any of that before in my life. I am not a huge cuddler, but I surely will let you know how much I appreciate you by being your forever loyal companion.

I am perfectly house trained and do not mind a crate or ex-pen, but I can also be trusted free in the house. I LOVE my kibbles, any treats, stuffed marrow bones and bully sticks. I also get VERY excited when my foster takes me for leisurely walks and car rides. I am her #1 errand companion!!!

Myrna is an absolute doll ! She wants nothing more than to love and be loved. This special senior deserves the forever home she never had, and PAWS has promised her just that…and more! She would do best in a calmer home with an adopter ready to continue to give her love and TLC she is truly worthy of.

Will you be the special person to step up and give this mama a loving new home?
