If you are looking for not one, but two, cuddle bugs, Clementine and Suzy are the girls for you!

Surrendered to a Tennessee shelter because their owner didn’t want them anymore, the girls were scooped up by PAWS, vetted and brought north by one of our dedicated volunteers. They are now in foster care and getting lots of love.
Clementine is about 9yo and as sweet as they come. She is very overweight, has cataracts and an infection in one eye. She is on a limited calorie diet and being treated for the infection. But none of this stops her. Besides needing to be with Suzy, Clementine loves to be with her people. She loves belly rubs and is a kissing bug.

Suzy is Clementine’s daughter and just the cutest little girl you’ll ever see. She weighs a whopping 3.2 lbs. and is 2 yo. She is the braver of the two but still stays very close to mom. Suzy squeaks like a mouse when she wants to be picked up and cuddled.

Both girls are timid and stick together and they must be adopted together. They are beginning to explore their surroundings, but are quick to scoot back to their favorite bed when frightened or unsure. They are being fostered with other small dogs and a cat. They pay no attention to any of them. They are content to snuggle with each other and their foster mom. They are housebroken and crate trained. Both have recently been spayed and have been thoroughly vetted.

Given Suzy’s tiny size and Clementine’s visual limitation, only an adult home will be considered. A fenced yard would be a huge plus. They do not/cannot use stairs, though Suzy will go down a few. They are not leash trained but that’s something that their foster mom will work on. Currently they are carried to a fenced area, they do their business and want to go right back in.

Adoption Donation: $250 for Suzy & Clementine
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.  
Dogs transported to New England are done so at a fee of $150.00 paid directly to the transporting company by Paws New England; no additional transport costs are responsibility of adopter.  This fee is included in the adoption donation.

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.
