Parish Pups (3 males) (LA)'s Info...
|Breed:||German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever Mix||Color:||Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)||Age:||Puppy|
|Size:||Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)||Sex:||Male|
These three adorable males were found in Louisiana in a drainaqe ditch and caught by one of our friends in that area; there are 3 males and 1 female (who at the time of this posting is still on the loose but not for long!).
Mom is a yellow labrador retriever mix (we have photos) and dad is a pure bred German Shepard (black) - known to person who found the puppies. Owner refuses to neuter him so PAWS NE is taking the stray mom too so he can't produce any more puppies - she will be spayed and we'll find her a great home too!
More photos coming shortly - we are naming them after some Louisiana Parishaes - the fawn one is Caddo and the two black/tan males will be Franklin and Caddo.
Approx. 4 months of age but we will confirm ASAP w/ vet visit - they will be neutered, brought up to date for vaccinations and dewormed - hopefully arriving into New England mid -February at the latest.
Adoption Donation: $475 (transport from LA is 185.00 per dog, thus our slightly increased donation request.

Paws NE abides by the quarantine regulations in RI, MA and NH - CT does not require quarantine for adopted dogs. NH quarantine is $75.00 per dog and $40.00 of that fee is passed along to the adopters; PAWS NE will cover $35.00. RI quarantine is no charge. Dogs quarantine in RI and NH are adoptable to Massachusetts.
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%29 vet care, and many people will want to adopt it. An older one with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation%3B yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt it. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others. Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you too are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption fees. Without these funds, our rescue efforts would not be possible.
Rescue Group Info...
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.
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.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company)

The adoption donation covers all pre-adoption vet costs (general health exam, vaccinations, heartworm testing/treatment when necessary)
Puppies under the age of 4 months will not be spayed/neutered prior to adoption upon advice of our veterinarians; small dog breeds may not be altered prior to six months if size prohibitive. Paw New England has a spay/neuter program in place with partner vets or if adopter chooses veterinarian of their own choice, reimbursement of $60.00 provided to adopter.
