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.

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.
