If you are looking for a real “ham” look no farther than adorable Eleanor Honey Ham!
What can we say about Ms. Eleanor Honey Ham… She is incredibly affectionate and will certainly bond with her family pretty quickly. She is working on general manners such as gentle with treats and play, off (specifically the counter even though she’s pretty low to the ground), getting into her crate on command and she can be a bit excitable. She gets nippy when she is excited and we are working hard on her with that. She showed some signs of possible food/possession aggression the first couple of days she was here but has been working very hard with “sit, stay, ok.”
She will need a family that is committed to continuing to work with her daily on this skill and basic obedience skills.She needs some work on leash training as well! You definitely need to keep your eye on her because if she isn’t trying to cuddle you or following you around at your heels she’s probably getting into trouble. She’s really just a big puppy that doesn’t know her own strength.
We believe that an ideal home for her would be one that had either grown children or a single couple/person and most likely not someone that isn’t stable with balance. She is goofy and super strong so she could easily bowl someone over and she’s a “coming in hot!” kinda girl for the spot on the couch. She seems like she will take a bit of time to really settle so she’ll need patience and love. We believe she would do best as an only dog and needs a family that fully understands and has experience with bully breeds like Eleanor.

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.
