Buddy was an indoor dog until his family went through some changes and he was put out on a chain. Our rescue partners were in contact with his family and on Sept 7th, 2020 they surrendered him.
This boy loves car rides and is perfectly behaved in the back seat. He enjoys long walks and would do great with someone who likes to go hiking or jogging. He is happy when playing fetch and is learning to bring the ball back. Buddy does great sleeping in a crate at night and knows how to use a doggy door.
We recommend Buddy as an only pet. He gets very excited around other dogs - almost like a nervous energy. He jumps on them, becomes mouthy, and doesn’t know when to stop. Buddy should have an adopter who is experienced with large dogs and can provide additional training.
Name: Buddy Brown
Breed: Shepherd/Terrier mix
Age: Estimated DOB 11/22/19
Weight: 64 pounds
Vaccinations: Up to date
Heartworm: Negative as of 9/8/2020
BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS:
Good with dogs: No. Buddy does not appear to have been properly socialized with other dogs. He is 10 months old but plays like a puppy and wants to jump on other dogs and get in their face. Due to his size and demeanor, the other dogs in his foster home become defensive and upset around him. Buddy is friendly through the fence and has not displayed any aggression - just lack of proper social skills.
Good with kids: Not expected to do well with small children. Buddy needs work on not jumping up. He is also mouthy when he is excited.
Good with cats: No
Adoption Fee: $475.00
Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog. The number of individual inquiries is overwhelming and we are finding it difficult to respond to each one. We cannot guarantee you will receive a timely response.
Paws New England is a rescue, not a shelter, and as such we do not have our dogs housed in one location - they are in foster homes both in New England and in our southern foster homes. If you’re interested in a specific dog, please complete a short online application and you will receive a reply within 48 hours so you can ask questions.
At present, if a dog is listed on our website, the dog is considered still available HOWEVER, may have applications that have come in before yours but it’s still too early to know if any are a good match; therefore we encourage you to apply.
NOTICE WITH REGARD TO LOCATION OF DOGS: Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue. We have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, and Arkansas) and New England (not necessarily in the state of Rhode Island). You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.
Dogs transported to New England are done so at a fee of $150.00 paid directly to the transporting company by Paws New England; no additional transport costs are responsibility of adopter. This fee is included in the adoption donation.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your dog will help others in need.
All known information about the animal is listed above. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
Paws New England abides by the dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.
