Poor Lydia was found emaciated and gravely ill along with her six puppies (the lab pack-all adopted!!). Our MO foster mom took over care of her pups since Lydia was unable to nurse them. Had it not been for the incredible care that our foster mom gave Lydia along with the thousands of dollars spent in veterinary expenses to fight for her "at all costs", she would have never survived.
After months of TLC and keeping her in quarantine, she finally received her veterinary clearance to go to an adoptive home. It was then discovered that Lydia was also heartworm positive. She was successfully treated and is now looking and feeling great.
Lydia is 2-3 year old lab mix that weighs about 55 lbs. She is very sweet, but also very timid. She will need love and patience to learn to trust and love you. Once she does, she will be your most loyal companion!! She is very food motivated, and her heart can be won with food and treats. She does well in a crate and walks fine on a lead.
We hope families will be willing to reward Lydia's incredible courage and strength and give her a loving home she so deserves after everything she has been through.
Thank you for your interest in a rescue dog. They are the best!

Interested in adopting this very special girl?
Please visit our website and complete an online application – we respond to applications MUCH QUICKER than we do email inquiries which are quite difficult at times given the number that we receive – don’t miss out on this dog – complete an application -http://www.pawsnewengland.com/adoption-form/
An application does not mean you are required to adopt – it just lets us know you are seriously considering this dog for adoption.
QUARANTINE: Paws New England participates and abides by the quarantine rules and regulations set forth in the states of NH, MA, CT, RI. Please note: Additional Quarantine fees may apply that are not included in adoption donation.
UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, ALL OF OUR DOGS ARE LOCATED OUTSIDE OF RHODE ISLAND BOARDED EITHER PRIVATE FOSTER HOMES OR TRAINING FACILITIES. If a dog is listed as "local", he /she is at one of our foster homes in New England.
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.
