A lucky boy this guy!!

Like some many others in the Memphis area, Boody was a stray living near a shopping center - an awesome woman noticed him - she tried calling him a few times on  her visits every day trying to get him and he wouldn’t come too close but got just a bit closer every day.  Finally, he came over after a night of freezing rain (and her being up all night worried).  She opened he back seat door to her truck and he wouldn’t get in, tried the back of the truck, nope - only when she opened the passenger side door did he hop in like he belonged.

Judith took him to her vet immediately to get him checked out - he was quite a mess with fleas, a small branch lodged in his gums, parasites, you name it - she covered all his vet expenses and he just got neutered as well. 

She sooooo wishes she could take him home to her house but her senior dog will have none of that so she was referred to Paws NE to help find him a home.

This guy is loved by the vet staff where he’s currently boarding - he’s a lover for sure - loves attention and gives it right back, kisses galore.  He’s been a rock star patient.  He’s not be formally tested with dogs yet as he wasn’t neutered yet but even so, when encountering them he seemed nothing but happy and wanting to play.  No growling, stiffness etc.    Once he recovers from his neuter we’ll get him with other dogs and report back.

We won’t know if he’s house broken as he’s lived outside but everyone that has met him says they think he was obviously someone’s dog and hopefully that means he lived in a house.

Will update more as we get more but if you’re interested in being the final chapter in this guy’s rescue story… apply away!!

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.
