Agnes is a 1 year old 45 pound Basset Hound mix rescued in Mississippi. The breed mix listed is an honest best guess based on size and physical characteristics. Though occasionally we do end up with a purebred surrender, our adopters will tell you that our Southern mutts are the best dogs they've ever had!  Agnes is a sweet, active girl who lives for long walks and playing in the yard with her canine roommates and friends. She even looks out for her blind foster brother by guiding him to toys and treats! Equally high on her list: napping in sunny spots around the house. Agnes is fully housetrained and crate trained, knows “sit,” “fetch,” and “drop;” and is learning more commands each day! A very affectionate little lady, she’ll use her paw (or her voice) to get some lovin’ from any and all people within her reach. She would make the perfect companion for any dog lover, especially in a home with other dogs and a fenced-in yard! She also purportedly lived with a cat prior to her journey up North. Agnes is fostered in Danvers MA and availalbe for adoption anywhere in New England.  Sweet Paws Rescue does not operate as a traditional animal shelter. There are three ways to adopt from us:  Commit to a dog that has not yet transported to Massachusetts—in other words, adopting a dog before meeting [him/her] in person. Because we have a unique Foster2Adopt™ program for all of our adoptions, there is a two-week trial period to ensure you've made a love connection with your new pup.  Meet one of our dogs being fostered in Massachusetts—and take them from foster to forever! Attend one of our meet & greet events held throughout the year at various locations on the north shore of Massachusetts. Pre-approved adopters that find your match can take your new pup home from the event! Regardless of what approach is best for you, the process always starts with submitting an application. More details on our adoption process are available on our website. Not quite ready to commit? Please consider opening your home to fostering one of our pups! If you live within driving distance to Newburyport or Groveland Massachusetts, we would love to talk with you. Details on fostering are also detailed on our website.    Too many dogs end up in shelters or back in rescue because their humans were not prepared for the commitment and responsibility of a dog. Before filling out an application, please evaluate your ability to train, exercise, and care for, financially and otherwise, for the span of your dog's lifetime. Their life depends on it!  show less

Not only is Archie a big HAM, he's a star!  From a backyard in CT with an unknown fate, to MA with a small army of advocates, Archie has now successfully completed a board and train program with Four Leggers Doggie Daycare and Spa and is ready for his Forever! Archie will do whatever he can to please his humans and is always making his foster laugh (and us too!). He loves marrow bones, cream cheese, and baths in pink tubs. Archie is approx 2 years old and a Bully Mix with a moderate energy level. He enjoys leisurely walks at the end of the day and doesn’t seem to be a morning dog. He often won’t eat breakfast, and waits until dinner time to eat. He might be a good jogging buddy eventually, but probably won't run any marathons. He doesn’t require slow introduction to other canine friends and can be placed solo or with another very social dog who has a similar bully play style. Archie regulates his play well, taking breaks now when he’s about to become overstimulated. He’s generally around more male dogs and they tend to play similarly. Archie is house broken and overall, has good house manners! He’s motivated primarily by his relationships with people, not as much by toys. He’ll occasionally play with a rope or kong but it’s few and far between unless you get him to do zoomies around the yard. He has the basics of training mastered and he's now working on them in areas with distractions and he remains a favorite amongst the daycare employees. Archie will need someone with bully experience and consistency with his ongoing training as he works towards breed ambassador status 🏆 To FOSTER, please live within driving distance of Groveland or Newburyport MA.

Brady is a 3 year old 8 pound Maltese/Yorkie mix surrended to us in Massachusetts when he couldn't adjust to an infant in the home. Brady is looking for his forever home, without young children, so he continues to shine.   Brady is the quintessential lapdog. He loves to be held and snuggled, and can often be found snoozing on the back cushions of the couch—especially after a good romp in the woods! In his foster home, Brady lives with four other dogs—three small, one medium/large—plus a cat and two parakeets. He gets along well with the whole crew! He’s not particularly keen to being jumped on, so he would prefer mellow siblings. Brady is crate trained and knows “sit.” He’s working on housetraining, but will typically bark when he needs to do his business. He’ll do best in a calm, quiet household with gentle adults who will love him forever. Brady is fostered in Lowell, MA and is available for adoption anywhere in New England!

Dorothy is a 10 years young, 50 pound, Black Lab mix who would love to find the home she has never had. She has a delightfull and goofy personality and is eager to please. She just wants to be loved and is learning all the new things that a house and home has to offer. She is also getting used to the car and walking on leash too. After a few visits from the foster's grandchildren, Dot has become very comfortable and loves being around family. Dorothy is very respectful of the resident (and alpha) 12 year old dog, and gives her space. She loves to eat and it's assumed there were many things Dorothy went without, food included. She is also housebroken and loves her yard, and she walks to a harbor each night to finish her day. Says her foster "she will make a wonderful family dog".  Dorothy is fostered in Beverly MA and can be adopted anywhere in New England.  Sweet Paws Rescue does not operate as a traditional animal shelter. There are three ways to adopt from us:  Commit to a dog that has not yet transported to Massachusetts—in other words, adopting a dog before meeting [him/her] in person.

It’s "Easter" Season! Meet Easter, a 25 pound Shepard Hound mix, who is approximately 5 months old, and we estimate she will be a large sized dog when full grown. The full-grown size of any of our dogs is an estimation based on a visual determination of their breed mix. Though occasionally we do end up with a purebred surrender, our adopters will tell you that our Southern mutts are the best dogs they've ever had! Easter loves to run and play, and is intrigued by everything!  She likes the dogs she’s met, and is respectful.  It takes her a little time to warm up to bigger dogs but after a patient introduction she’ll come out of her shell and play.  She has met a couple of cats, which so far she has found aren’t the best playmates. Easter is getting better at being in her crate during the day, but has slept very well at night in it without a peep and is making good progress on housetraining. She has been training on walking nicely on her leash and her basic commands like “sit” and responding to her name.  Her foster people say she is a quick learner and with continued guidance will be a pro in no time.  Easter shows no signs of food guarding, and thinks the teenagers she’s met so far are great.  This little girl is a basketful of fun and would love to romp and roll with you! Easter is fostered in Peabody MA and available to be adopted anywhere in New England.  Sweet Paws Rescue does not operate as a traditional animal shelter. There are three ways to adopt from us:  Commit to a dog that has not yet transported to Massachusetts—in other words, adopting a dog before meeting [him/her] in person.
