Caleb Cuddles hasn't had an easy time in life. When he was a older puppy he was struck by a car which left him with a shoulder fracture. This injury did not heal perfectly and if too active he will limp.

Despite this, Caleb has a zest for life! He absolutely LOVES water. He cannot get enough of it! In fact, when at the shelter the staff put a small kiddie pool in his kennel which he loved lounging and playing in! We can just picture him spending summers lounging by the pool or lake! Caleb adores people, including a 10 year old girl who he became fast friends with (see photos). He's incredibly affectionate and wanted nothing more than to snuggle with her. Caleb was also happy to show off his smarts, doing sit & down on command!

Caleb would prefers low-key/mellow dogs who aren't bossy. However, he would most definitely be happy as an only dog. He is NOT reactive on leash, and can happily and calmly be walked or go in public without issue. He's such a good boy and is very quiet in his crate.

This handsome boy very much deserves a family to call his own. He entered the shelter in July and we know his best chance of adoption is in New England. If you're interested in learning more about fostering or adopting Caleb, we'd love to hear from you!

About Our Rescue Group...

PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.

Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are located either in foster homes in New England or Tennessee/Missouri. Please email our volunteers to ask about the specific pet that you are interested in.
