Diamond Lil, new to Paws New England as of today 8/26 - we were asked by Companion Animal Welfare vets in Warwick RI, our wonderful partner vet, if we would take this dog if the owner surrendered her to them - she wanted to euthanize and they felt strongly this should not happen - so now she's a Paws NE family member.
What we can tell you know is she's approx. 9 years old, so far seems to to very well with dogs in a group setting, great with people (although she did try to drive on the way from RI to her foster home in Weymouth MA). She definitely needs some leash training but everything else seems great. We will update as we go along.
She is undergoing treatment for ongoing skin issues which her veterinarian is convinced is food related - she's not convinced the family was following protocols to get Diamond's skin back to healthy so we are sure they will be now. Paws NE will of course continue to cover her skin care until she's all shiny and pretty again.

Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - we do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue - we have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas) and New England. You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.
