About Frank

Frank, aka ? "Frank the Tank", Francis, Bubba, Handsome, Baby Boo, Sausage McStuffin. This meatball is a 60 pound, 1 year old, stunningly handsome, silver & white American Staffordshire Terrier. He has a big beautiful blocky head and his ice blue eyes will melt your heart. With the short stocky body of a linebacker, we consider him a professional wigglebutt as he can shake his caboose with the best of them. Frank is also now famous since his radio debut on Boston's WAAF as Monday's Mutt! 

A local boy originating from Lawrence MA, Frank was first left alone for 3 months during the Lawrence/Andover gas explosions. Once his family returned, he was quickly in the middle of what was a Department Of Human Services disaster. After the removal of that household's children for the 3rd time, Frank was surrendered. This landed him a spot in the Lawrence pound and his options were bleak. A local animal behaviorist, who partners with SPR to evaluate dogs that need rescue, recommended we look at Frank. After a sad month at the pound, Frank is now ours and you'd never know he had such a rough start to life. This boy has the most jovial, friendly, outgoing personality and is very much still a puppy.

Frank has recently started clicker training and is doing an incredible job. He is very treat motivated (hot dogs are a favorite) and he craves the approval of his people. He has currently mastered "sit", "down", "go to your mat", and "drop it"! He is also working on a new trick to impress his forever family! Frank wants to play with every dog he meets, and doesn't quite understand that not every dog wants to play with a Rugby player! He's a rough and tumble sort of guy, and would love a buddy with a similar play style. Frank needs a home with somebody who has large tank-dog experience, and a commitment to continue his positive reinforcement training as he continues to work towards great canine citizen status. Also, you must love giant sloppy kisses, his signature move!

Frank is currently living in a home with two dogs and several cats and he is doing great! His foster parent says that he will need an owner that does not allow Frank to rule the roost and that Frank is a breed ambassador. 

Adoption Fee: $525.00 under 18 months old

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.

Sweet Bindi is a hero!!  This lovely lady was in a high kill shelter in Virginia where she had surgery for infection from a failed pregnancy. She was paired up with an orphaned kitten named Puma and quickly adopted her surrogate baby.  Bindi and Puma were pulled from the shelter by a rescue partner and made their way up north to Sweet Paws. She was an excellent mama to her adopted baby, Puma. Days after Bindi arrived in Massachusetts we had a critical emergency with a pregnant cat. "Momma Cat" underwent an emergency C section at Riverside Veterinary Clinic to save her life and her babies. Momma Cat survived surgery but couldn't care for her 5 newborns so we crossed our fingers and brought two of the kittens to Bindi. Bindi's adopted kitten Puma was 6 weeks old at the time so we weren't sure how Bindi would handle two more additions. Bindi took the orphaned babies into her family and saved two more lives !!!  Bindi is a Sweet Paws Rescue hero!  Can you find it in your heart to be her hero?   Bindi is in foster in Haverhill, MA .  ***Momma Cat was the C-section pregnant cat. She survived her ordeal and has since been adopted into a wonderful home where she is being treated as a queen. ***All 5 of Momma Cat's babies survived ! The other three went to a lovely mother named Jelly Bean.  show less

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!

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!

**adoption pending** “A kitten is, in the animal world, what a rosebud is in the garden."  ― Robert Southey  Everybody loves kittens, and it's not hard to see why! Bringing home a kitten (or two!) means your home is about to be 1000% more adorable. Because kittens are much happier with a feline friend, we only adopt kittens who are under 4 months old out in pairs, or to families who already have a resident friendly cat playmate. If you are looking for a solo cat, please consider one of our friendly available adults! All of the Sweet Paws animals are loved a great deal by their rescuers, fosters, and the volunteers who've cared for them along the way. Your kitten will be up to date on appropriate vaccinations by adoption day, but please keep in mind that kittens require multiple routine vet visits throughout the course of their first year. If the kitten you are adopting has not been spayed or neutered on adoption day, Sweet Paws will arrange for and cover the cost of the surgery at your convenience at one of our veterinary clinics (Riverside Veterinary Clinic in Haverhill or Newburyport Veterinary Clinic). We require that all kittens are spayed or neutered by 6 months. Sweet Paws is entirely staffed by volunteers, and processing applications is time intensive; therefore, we ask that you only submit an application if you are fully committed to adopting. Our adoption fee is $250 for one kitten, or $350 for a pair. show less

Izzy is a 1 year old Border Collie mix rescued in Alabama.

Kitten season is here!!! We have multiple mothers nursing litters of kittens as well as kittens being vetted in Missisissippi who are waitiing for their freedom ride up north. Many of our kittens do not make it on our website as they are adopted by approved adopters who were waiting for the perfect kitten to come along. Please fill out an application to be informed about upcoming litters and transports!  All of our kittens will be up to date on vaccines on adoption day, but keep in mind that kittens will require multiple vaccines vet visits over the course of their first year. If the kitten you are interested in is not spayed and neutered prior to adoption then we will arrange for the surgery at your convenience at one of our vetrinary clinics (Riverside Veterinary Clinic or Newburyport Veterinary Clinic.) All kittens must be spayed neutered by maturity (6 months)  We do not adopt kittens younger than 4-5 months as "only" cats in a household. If you do not have a friendly resident cat, then we will adopt young kittens as pairs. Kittens are so much happier with another feline friend and it is less work when they have each other to entertain and don't get lonely !  Our adoption fee is offset to help defray the cost of adding 2 pets to your hom -  $250 for one kitten, $350 for a pair *** Kittens shown in photos are from past transports and are not available for adoption show less

Lexi is a 2 year old Cattle Dog/ Terrier mix and was surrendered to SPR in MA when her owner's living situation changed, and Lexi was unable to move with her humans.

She is very affectionate and gives the best kisses and cuddles. She would love an active home as he really enjoys playing and enjoys her long walks. She is great around other dogs and kids, and is learning about cats. She is house and crate trained, and would love her forever home to have another resident dog or the opportunity to play with other canine friends regularly! She loves her toys and tennis balls and could play the day away, everyday. Lexi is currently fostered in Salisbury MA and can be adopted anywhere in New England. She is eager to please, craves your love, and promises you a lifetime of greeting you at the door with wags and kisses!

Millie is still looking for her forever home. This beautiful and clever 2yr old (45-50lbs) black lab mix is looking for a patient, compassionate, and dog savvy person or family. Millie is a loving and sweet girl but is fearful of new situations and people and her people should have the patience and heart to allow her time to adjust. In return, this girl will give you her whole heart! Millie LOVES her walks and to curl up on the couch with you. She loves to be the center of your attention, and will do well as the only dog in your home however, she may do well with a laid back, calm, and submissive resident dog. She also does well with confident CATS! Millie will need a home with a yard, preferably fenced, but if not - a commitment to giving her the outside play time she needs. She is house broken and crate trained. Millie is fostered with 2 dogs and 2 cats, and teenagers too (no young children please). Millie is fostered in Bradford MA but can be adopted anywhere in New England!

Miss BRINDI literally lived in a harness made of chains (see included pic) before chewing herself loose one last time and then she became ours. Brindi spent a bunch of time with one of our southern partners (with KIDS and PUPS of all shapes and sizes) but with a looming relocation, we had to move Brindi north.  This sweet brindle gal is assumed a Boxer/Hound mix and yes, we know she looks a little Pittie too and we believe this has held her back from not only a forever home, but we didn't have a foster either. While Brindi watched all the other pups go home after transport and quarantine, she remained 😢 Brindi is STILL living in our facility with a group of volunteers walking her, but if you watch her VIDEOS: https://www.dropbox.com/…/mofa8o…/AAAW0u_xBZhRprxjxss1xECZa… ...you will quickly see that Brindi deserves so much more - a FAMILY of her own. In her videos you may also recognize EASTER, one of Brindi's BFF's who is now also in MA. And also - CHOCO! Choco is already with his forever family, yet when he was still an "owned stray" in MS, there is a video of him visiting Brindi - she was his favorite and the feeling appears mutual. Brindi is 3 years old, 74 pounds, squish face sweetie pie and is looking for a patient, compassionate, dog savvy person or family. She is obsessed with all people and does everything she can to be close to them. We have seen Brindi have successful relationships with many dogs, and with proper introductions, we believe she benefits from these canine relationships too. Adopters need to be patient and slowly, properly, introduce Brindi to other passive dogs in a supervised environment. Brindi would love a home with a fenced in yard or a commitment to give her the proper exercise she needs. She loves to trail walk and politely passes the people and dog she meets on her way. Brindi is very treat motivated and is well on her way to learning basic commands. Are you her forever? We know she wants to be yours!  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.
