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

Please send inquiries to this email address and not the general info email.

This is Bella! (Named by her sponsors, Gloria and Amie). She sort of looks like a miniature golden retriever with doxie legs, don't you think? Unbelievably adorable!

Bella was in a very sad state when she was rescued from a high kill shelter. She was pregnant, had a terrible skin condition and was found to be heartworm positive. Her initial pictures were tough to look at. But that is all behind her now!!

Bella is a 15-18 month old Duck-Tolling Retriever mix?? She weighs 33 lbs. She is a very sweet shy submissive girl whose favorite thing is to get belly rubs. She initially takes some time to realize that she can trust you, but once she does, she will be your best pal. And when she looks at you with those eyes, you cannot help but melt.

Bella loves just chilling in the house or exploring outside. She does well on a leash and loves car rides.

Bella is currently living with large and small dogs, puppies, adults and two young children and she gets along with everyone perfectly. She even doesn't mind cats! Bella is still much a puppy in behavior, so she would benefit from some training in basic manners.

Bella has completed heartworm treatment and will be spayed in May when she will then be ready for a loving adoptive family.

Please consider giving Bella a safe loving home she so deserves.

Thank you for your interest in a rescue dog..they are simply the best!

Please 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 -

An application does not mean you are required to adopt – it just lets us know you are seriously considering this dog for adoption.

PET INSURANCE: Paws New England has 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

Bella (LOCAL MA), a Barrington Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Dachshund for sale in Barrington, or seeking a Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Dachshund dog 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 Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Dachshund breeders who help with Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
