How’s about a handsome black cur mix or maybe a little bit of hound/mastiff in there - honestly, we have zero clue what he’s made up of but goodness it’s a great cocktail!!

He had what we think was a tough life before he was rescued by our friends at All 4’s - he was tied up with a chain in someone’s back yard.  Eventually they were able to convince the owner to let him go so his vetting has been done and he’s ready to start his life.

His foster mom reports he absolutely LOVES LOVES LOVES stuffed animals or “babies” as she calls them.  He leaves the toys all over the house, she picks them up, puts them in the “toy box” and he then takes them out again and distributes them throughout the house.
Check out his videos:

Chaco is “super loving and sweet” with her and her nieces and nephews that come to visit - he is tentative around strangers but is getting better all the time! He is walking really well on a leash and his recall is getting really good!

Need an adopter with dog experience. Prefers smaller men.

Hope you’ll consider this guy.

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.
