Fostering in New England!
Sadey is beyond gorgeous! That goes without saying don’t you think??
She’s approx. 3 years old - lucky for her she wandered into the yard of a great family in Memphis who, instead of making her get out of their yard, took her in, got all her vetting done, and started looking for a home for her.
We are saying not children or other dogs for Sadey - she has been introduced to a toddler or two and growled at them - we aren’t 100% sure if this was due to generalized nervousness as she was still new to the family but we aren’t willing to risk it.
Sadey’s first stop North was at our trainer’s pet resort. The conclusion was she should be an only dog and was not a good candidate for a dog parks or doggy daycare.
Sadey is now in a foster home in New England. This not so little lady is looking for a home where she can be the center of her caretaker’s universe. She loves to play with her toys and is quite amused with the squeak that they make. She is housetrained and does really well inside the home!
Sadey, as you can see, runs and plays well despite a previously fractured left rear leg that has healed - she was evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon who said its best to leave as is and shouldn’t cause her issues. She certainly doesn’t let it bother her.
Here is what her rescuer had to say:
My husband and I had this sweet girl wander into our yard early November. She has a distinct limp, was covered with fleas and ticks and was full of intestinal worms. We were unable to find her owner and believe she was intentionally dumped. We took her to our vet and she has now been fully vetted. She is heart-worm negative and is worm free and no longer has fleas or ticks. The vet took x-rays of her back leg and she was obviously hit by a car at some point and broke her femur and tibia. Unfortunately, this was allowed to heal without medical intervention. She now has a limp because one leg is shorter than the other. Our vet has recommended that she be treated with joint supplements and physical therapy and that this would probably be a lifetime issue. We introduced her to our pack (three rescues), and one of our female dogs did not interact well with her. She never seems to instigate any issues with other female dogs but will react and defend herself. This broke our hearts because she’s sooo sweet! She is so wonderful, and we all just want the best for her.

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.
