"ROSCOE"
Shepherd/Hound, 1.5 years, 45 lbs., Neutered Male
Mass Humane Society - Partnership & Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Roscoe is a 1.5 year old neutered male shepherd hound, UTD on all shots, heart worm negative. loves other dogs. Would do best in a home with another friendly & confident dog to guide him. Passed initial cat test. May do well with proper introductions. Kids: Would do best with older kids due to initial shyness Roscoe and his sister, Diva (now adopted), were living in a home with 12 dogs and cats. Unfortunately, their home caught fire and they were some of the lucky animals to make it out. When they escaped they lived in the woods for weeks until they could be caught. After arriving to the shelter they were absolutely terrified. They never showed an ounce of aggression, but would just freeze and tremble. After number of weeks passed, both pups started to blossom! Roscoe is a handsome 1.5 year old hound mix. He’s the perfect size at 45 pounds!

Now, instead of freezing when people approach he happily wags his tail. He’s never walked on leash in his life and he’s starting to learn how to do that. Because of his shyness a fenced yard is required for Roscoe’s new home. He’s come such a long way in such a short period of time. We’d love to see him in a loving & patient home where he can continue to blossom. He absolutely needs another friendly and confident dog in the home to show him the way. His sister, Diva, has recently been adopted and we hope it will be his turn next!! We will continue to update his bio as we learn more!

"ABBY"
Terrier mix, 12 years, 40 lbs., Spayed Female
Mass Humane Society - Partnership & Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Abby is a 12 year old senior, spayed Terrier Mix, 40 pounds, all shots up to date, Negative on Heartworm and on preventative and micro chipped. Does ok with submissive dogs - no cats. Abby was surrendered by her owner in 2015 to a dog sanctuary in Tennessee. The owner was moving and could not take the dog with him. What a tragedy for Abby, who found herself displaced out of her forever home as a senior! Very quickly, the sanctuary staff realized that the boarding situation was too overwhelming for her, and she were moved to a foster home in TN, where she spent several months before Paws New England was informed of her plight to travel North.

Abby is one of those lucky ladies that doesn't look or act her age! While she is a senior and is very calm and laid-back for the most part, she does show initial excitement when people visit, and she makes it a point to seek out attention from adults and children. After a while, she likes to have a quiet place to rest away from the activity. A generally quiet home would suit her best. She 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 to stretch out in the sun. Abby (after proper initial introductions) is usually good with other dogs. She would, however, prefer to be an only dog.

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

"CHANNING"
Black/Tan Coonhound Treeing Walker, 4 years, 83 lbs., Neutered Male
Mass Humane Society - Partnership & Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Fostering in New England!! Must have another friendly and confident dog in the home- no exceptions!!

Channing is a large 4 year neutered male Black/Tan Coonhound Treeing Walker about 83 pounds, up to date on all shots, heartworm negative on prevention, and micro chipped. He was one of seven dogs rescued from a neglectful property in Tennessee. They grew up in a bleak backyard with no socialization, veterinary care, or human companionship. When their owners grew weary of the seven dogs, they called animal control to come and get them one by one. When Paws New England learned about this family of hounds, we simply had to get involved. We rescued all seven. Five have found their forever homes. Channing was one of the last to be rescued from the property. He spent months in boarding before moving into a New England foster home.

Channing is blossoming in his foster home! His foster mom reports he’s doing really well on his basic training. He’s already mastered sit, go to bed and leave it. He continues to work on paw, down, come and watch me. He has learned to take treats gently and is completely house broken. Channing lives harmoniously live with his canine foster brother, Buddy, and 2 feline foster siblings!

He continues to work on his confidence building, but we have big hopes for this boy! New situations or dogs can still be a little scary for him, but he’s getting better every day! Channing is loves going for walks or long hikes with his foster dad. He’s happiest when he gets plenty of exercise and play time! His foster mom reports that he loves walking around with his favorite stuffed animal in his mouth and it’s absolutely adorable!

Channing takes the lead from his friendly and confident foster brother, Buddy. We’d love to see him in a home with a friendly canine sibling to show him the ropes. In fact, this will be critical for Channing’s overall long term growth. He will need a patient and loving family who can make a commitment to providing him with the exercise his needs and the time he deserves to adjust to a new home.

If you would like to be part of Channings fairy tale ending, we’d love to hear from you!
