About Tappa

Tappa is a 1 year old, Feist mix rescued in Mississippi. This dog will be traveling north within the month and is looking for her Forever anywhere in New England. 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. 

Sweet Paws Rescue does not operate like a traditional animal shelter and there are three ways to adopt from us. The first is to commit to a dog that has not yet transported to Massachusetts - essentially, adopting a dog before meeting in person. Because we have a unique Foster2Adopt™ program for all of our adoptions, there is two week trial to insure you've made a love connection with your new pup. The second way is to meet and then adopt one of our dogs already in Massachusetts and living in one of our foster homes. Thirdly, we host "meet & greets" throughout the year at various locations. Approved adopters may meet and then take their new pup home from that 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!

Adoption Fee: $485.00

Astrid & Moe were raised together by Moe's mama, Bubbles, and their littermates, who have all been adopted! Moe & Astrid are a dynamite pair of kittens - social, loving, playful, and affectionate. They are fostered together in Waltham, MA. “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 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

Meet Balto, a 2 year old Great Pyrenees mix, and a large bundle of love. Balto gets along great with his foster canine and kid friends. He has mixed feelings about the resident cat, sometimes he likes to bark at her, sometimes he likes to follow her around to see if she knows any interesting places where there could be treats! Balto goes in his crate during the day, and likes to sleep on the floor by the bed at night. He’s fully housetrained and knows his name and basic commands. Balto loves to play with toys and roam around the yard. He’s trying very hard to be a good leash walker but there are just so many giant distractions in the world that he just NEEDS to try to get to them all. He gets anxious when he sees other dogs while on his leash, but since he’s generally dog friendly, some good continued leash training will help him to be his usual calm, adorable self. Balto is a very good boy who would love a family that will give him lots of playtime, training and cheese treats!

Meet Blossom, a sweet as a flower 6 month old mixed breed lady. Blossom is mom to Darlin’ and Clementine and is SUCH a good mom! She loves to spend time with her pups, and loves to spend time with her foster humans and other people she meets. She’s been taking such good care of her babies that she hasn’t roamed around her world very much, but she enjoyed the attention she got from the vet and the staff there. She has been using puppy training pads so she can be near her pups, so continued housetraining will be helpful, as well as more exploration of the world around her.

BRUIN is an extra large dog with a fantastic disposition and a warm personality looking for a home with room to roam. He can be a rambunctious dog when others are involved but typically is a low key easy going boy. Bruin appreciates contact and will seek it out when he needs. Other wise he can be found in a favorite spot lying down enjoying a good sleep or the view. Bruin is a perfect example of a bark being more than its bite, he functions as a door bell when people arrive, until he recognizes the sound of your car.

Fresh is a 3 month year old Lab mix rescued in Mississippi and we estimate that he will be a med-sized dog when full grown. This pup will be traveling north within the month and is looking for his Forever anywhere in New England. 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! 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

Haley is a sweet, soft, 8-month-old, Pointer/Hound mix searching for a home, with a fenced in yard and a playful resident dog. An abode on the quieter side of town, with a family who loves the serenity of the woods and peaceful morning walks is her heart’s desire. This 35lb bashful beauty is hesitant to meet new people and unsure of new environments, yet with patience, sensitivity, and love, she quickly flourishes. Haley is house trained, no longer needs a crate, easily redirected, and looks to resident dog as a role model. She loves belly rubs, tug toys, snuggling with her humans, and playing with a variety of canines. Simply put, Haley yearns to be part of a family that is willing to cultivate her growth as she continues to gain confidence and comfort in her environment and the world.  Haley is fostered in Beverly, MA.

Becky and Harley are a bonded brother and sister who are sweet as can be. Becky is a little on the shy side but very loving when she becomes comfortable, and relies on her brother Harley for courage. They came from Mississippi and their foster had a very hard time parting with them, as they were such loves. Harley has a white nose and Becky has a black nose! “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 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

Let us introduce sweet senior gal Leona. Leona arrived in MA last weekend after our transport driver, Dan, sprung her from a shelter in TN after reading her heart-wrenching story of abandonment. He put her on the van with the rest of the transport and drove her here to MA so that she could move on from her betrayal and live her best life. 🐾 Leona immediately became a FAVORITE of the isolation facility volunteers, in fact so much so, that we had to make sure to rotate volunteers through with her during the shifts so that everyone could get a chance to spend time with her. It became the volunteers’ mission to prove to her that humans can in fact be very kind and caring. They made sure she knew that in her misfortune and heartbreak she had landed somewhere where people would make it their goal to not let another day go by where she didn’t get all of the love, kisses and pets that a girl could ever want. 😍 There were many wonderful potential adopters who offered to open their hearts and homes to Leona for the rest her years, but unfortunately none were the right fit. Throughout her 10 years, Leona has established some criteria that are a must for her home: no other dogs and no cats. Leona LOVES humans of all sizes, but needs to be your only furry family member. 🐶 LEONA'S STORY: https://petrescuereport.com/…/ultimate-betrayal-dog-dumpe…/… 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!

Brindi is 3 year old, 74 pounds, squish-face-sweetiepie and is looking for a patient and compassionate famliy she can call her own. She is obsessed with all people and does everything she can to be close to them. There is nothing to not love about this dog and she will give you her whole heart. Brindi wants nothing more than to be near you, wherever that is. She’s happy to follow you outside or inside, even lying outside the shower door if it means being closer to you. There is not a person, big or small, she does not adore. She sleeps in bed with a 10 year old right through the night and will wait til the humans rise to get up too. Being fully housebroken is a bonus to the many wonderful things about Brindi. Brindi is super gentle, knows 'sit' and even our tiniest 6 year old easily hand feeds her treats and can walk her on a leash. Although we keep an adult on the ready when leash walking because of Brindi's size and like with any dog you always want to be cautious and prepared. But Brindi has definitely mastered leash walking and she stays right next to you without pulling.  We have not introduced her to dogs but she has been trying to intice the deer on the other side of the fence to play with her. Brindi is the canine equivlenant of a "people person" - she much more prefers the company of her humans and will do great as an only dog. She’s still awkward and goofy as she learns how to play which is incredibly endearing and she's getting used to the freedom of running in her yard. She doesn't understand fetch yet but does have a couple Santa toys that she likes to carry and cuddle with, especially when lying on the couch with her head on the pillow.  She doesn't need to be crated, she can be trusted in her home, and is happiest with run of the house. Her beautiful big eyes light up when her foster family arrives home and she greets them with the biggest of smiles and this will be the best part of your day too! Are you Brindi's forever?

Special home needed for a VERY special girl ❤️ Ola Belle is a 6-year-old super sweet Mississippi . Sadly, her owner passed away and Sweet Paws has been asked to find this lovely lady a furever home. Her owner's daughter told us that her dad had saved her from a horrible life 💔  Ola is a laid back, delightful girl, who thoroughly enjoyed the volunteers’ affection and attention at our facility during her mandatory quarantine upon her arrival to MA this past weekend. Ola is house-trained and gets along great with other dogs and with cats. 🥰 As you can see from the pictures included here, Ola is morbidly obese. She has had testing which ruled out an underlying medical issue as the cause of her being so overweight. Ola is searching for a home where her humans will commit to patiently guide her on the journey to wellness that she so desperately needs. A home where she will be able to both adhere to a healthy diet and where she is consistently given appropriate exercise is a must. We are recommending hydrotherapy as the safest way for Ola to initially get her exercise in order to minimize any strain on her joints. Our team will provide support to her adopters in helping them find a facility that they can work with for her to have hydrotherapy. It is critical that Ola begins to lose weight ASAP before her body suffers any lasting ill-effects as a result of her current obesity. 🙏 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.

So this gorgeous little girl is as sweet as her smile! She has never met a stranger and is happy to wag her tail and smile for pets & scratches. She would be happiest as an only pup - the center of her parent's heart - but she would accept a low-key big brother (big as in larger, not necessarily older!) She isn't what many would call HIGH energy, but she does love nice morning & afternoon walks or runs, or a good game of fetch. A fence would be wonderful because she is definitely interested in small critters and she is FAST! Someone that has experience with the breed is always best. Raven is a strong girl but well behaved and a quick learner. Raven is currently fostered in AMESBURY MA. If you're interested in learning more about this beauty queen or think she'd be a great fit, reach out to us at info@sweetpawsrescue.org 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

Oh, Romeo oh Romeo! This handsome guy is a 3 year old Chi mix will be your ultimate companion! Shy at first meeting but the key to his heart is through butt scratches! He's a happy guy who is house trained and walks great on leash. Romeo does well with other small dogs and loves a good game of chase! He would love a home with another small dog so he always has a friend. He loves to play with toys and balls too. He would prefer a home on the quiet side, so no young kiddos! He uses a doggy door like a champ and would also love a fenced yard if you have one kicking around. He loves women the best, but a male caregiver would be ok if he has a kind heart and gentle way.

Rylee is a country girl at heart! This 2 year old, Border Collie mix dreams of life on a farm where she can enjoy the sounds of nature and the pace of slow living. At SPR, we love our shy dogs. Once they learn to trust you, they love with their whole heart. Rylee needs some time to get to know you - but once she does, she is just the very sweetest of girls. You know you've won her heart when she wags her tail and gives a paw, and then her belly. It's also rumored that she has become an expert kiss-giver! She is an expert booper, loves nose scritches and belly rubs, and has a knack for interior design as she’s slowly incorporated all of her toys into her crate. She loves trail walks and a big backyard where she can sniff and run and perk up her big ears to take in the world. Rye will do best outside the city, with a confident dog and a family with dog-owning experience, lots of patience, and love. Give Rylee a solid base and you will have a friend for life.  She is currently fostered in the city and this has been hard for her - there are many noises and new things that she would rather not learn about. Instead, she loves her excursions outside the city where she hikes in the woods and this is where she starts to shine. She will do best with another resident dog so she can learn more about life in the north by following the lead of another. She needs a safe space to chill out and loves being in her crate. Rylee needs love, a quiet country home, patience, and some time. In return, you will have a lifetime of her loyalty.

Meet Sassy, a 3 year old Shephard mix who is a playful, friendly girl whose eyes just melt hearts. Sassy is fully crate trained and almost fully housetrained. She likes to play with dogs, and loves to chill with her people. Since she’s out of her puppy stage, she doesn’t need as much playtime, but who doesn’t love a good romp with a friend now and then? Sassy is eager to please and loves, loves, loves food and toys, so training would be most successful with yummy rewards! Sassy adapts to what is going on around her, whether it’s fun playtime or relaxing chill time. She really wants to be a good girl and continue learning what it’s like to be in a loving home, so a lot of patience and understanding and continued teaching of social manners will have her being the perfect play/lounge mate in no time. If you have time and patience (and treats!), Sassy will be your new best friend.

This Handsome Bassett Hound Mix is SHORT DOG. This Country Boy is 3 years young, 45 pounds and was rescued in Mississippi. Short Dog has a John Wayne essence to him, he is mellow and laid back, but also has a few scars that show of an old life that he does not like to think about. He is reserved and doesn’t open up to just anyone, but if you play your cards right (and have the right treat!) you just might find yourself the best friend you will ever have. Short Dog would much rather enjoy a long walk with his Human meeting new Canine friends than play with toys. Lounging in the yard is also his cup of tea or even a good butt scratching will do. Really he’s a simple boy who doesn’t ask for much, except some loyalty, patience and love. He also is house trained; crate trained and has learned to enjoy car rides just with his canine buddy. Short Dog would do best with a canine friend to help keep him company. The breed mix listed is an honest best guess based on size and physical characteristics.

Tupac loves to play with his foster canine friends, and he can keep up with the most rough and tumble of them. Tupac is crate trained and sleeps well all night. He will wake up in the morning and ask to go outside to potty. He’s almost fully housetrained, and he’s learning quickly how to sit and stay, and other fun tricks.
