He is probably about 11 wks old now (8/16/17) and weighs in at a little over 7 lbs. He is vivacious, smart and has self crate trained since his sibs have left. He asks to get out when he needs to go! He is very independent and can entertain himself for several hours in his crate and is a joy. He is smart, funny and spunky. He likes sqeaky toys, big stuffed animals and balls. He loves nothing better than to be on your chair or lap and watch tv. If he gets bitey, he responds to 'no' and starts licking instead. I can't say enough about this old soul little pup. He is special and you would be lucky to have him in your life. He would love to have another dog in his life, but would be ok without. Don't wait...adopt him ;)

Little Finch is about 8-9 weeks old (8/1/17) and weighs in at about 5 lbs. He had a tough start in life due to an excess of intestinal parasites and was so anemic, he had to spend 8 days at the vet's office and get transfusions. He was 1.8 lbs when he went to his foster home. He has rebounded in amazing ways and is spunky, fun loving, sweet and quite the people pup. He loves toys and lap time but is still sooo puppy that he sometimes resembles a piranha. He corrects easily, loves watching television and sleeps great in his crate all night long. He is a special little one. Adopt this little man who will love you for life.

About Companion Pet Rescue & Transport of New England

About Our Rescue Group...

CPR was formed in 2004 to assist unwanted pups and dogs with finding a new home. We rescue our pups from high kill shelters in TN, AR, MS, LA and TX. Without the dedication of the staff and volunteers of these shelters and without the assistance of CPR, the pups posted on our website would not be rescued. Before partnering with CPR, these shelters had euthanasia rates of 95%. We've reduced the euthanasia rate in all shelters by at least 50%. We rescue and rehome 200+ pups and dogs each month. We accomplish this task with the help of an awesome hard working and dedicated staff and volunteer base. Also helping us to accomplish what seems at times to be a thankless and overwhelming job is our pure and selfless love of dogs! We truly believe that rescue + rehoming = true love. <3

Our Adoption Process...

Please visit our website at www.cprdogs.com for our online application. Upon approval, one of our hard working adoption counselors will be in touch and help you finalize the adoption of your new family member.
The adoption contract is also found on our website. While it's not necessary to sign the contract until you are ready to finalize the adoption, you may want to look over it just to make sure you are agreeable to all our requirements.
Our adoption fees cover all of the pre-adoption vet work and transportation costs.
