Lavender (LOCAL)'s Story...
For more information about this dog, please contact his/her adoption coordinator:

Meet Lavender.

Lavender, sadly, was abandoned at a home with 10 other small dogs who were left to fend for themselves. They were full of parasites, including heartworm. The house was believed to been a small-scale puppy mill, and Lavender looked like she had had a litter recently.

Since being rescued from a TN shelter with the other abandoned dogs, Lavender has had several rounds of treatment for the parasites, and is currently being treated for heartworm.

Although she has had a life of neglect in her approximately 7 years, she can be a happy-go-lucky and loving girl. She squeals with happiness when her foster mom comes home, or when she gets to roll around on the furniture or dog bed; she enjoys running in the yard and getting belly rubs.

She does have to learn to trust people with some things-she cannot be leashed currently due to fear of touching her near her head and backside so an enclosed or fenced in yard is necessary. She can also not be picked up currently due to fear.

Lavender has beautiful blue eyes that are incredibly stunning in person. She is about 12 pounds and is believed to be a miniature-pinscher and chihuahua mix. She is such a sweetheart and deserves the love that she was lacking in her earlier life.

She gets along well with cats, and big and small dogs.

If you are interested in Lavender, and would like to know more about her please email her foster mom at, or fill out an adoption application.

Donation: $425 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company where applicable)

PET INSURANCE: Paws New England as recently joined VCA Animal Hospitals in a program providing new adopters with a certificate for an initial health exam at a VCA Hospital and treatment of certain conditions free of charges for the first 5 days. This is a great program and PAWS is thrilled to be participating in for our adopter. There are also numerous other pet insurance programs available to shelter animals.

QUARANTINE: Paws New England participates and abides by the quarantine rules and regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, RI.
We are often asked, ""Why would you charge ""so much"" for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support ALL rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in discounted vet care, and many people will want to adopt it; an older dog with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt him/her. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lavender (LOCAL), a Barrington Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua for sale in Barrington, or seeking a Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua puppy from a breeder in Barrington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barrington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Barrington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua breeders who help with Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
