Lenie is very sweet and was a favorite at the clinic and her foster home who doesn’t let her blindness slow her down in any size, shape or form. She is fearless once she knows her surroundings and she will trust you to help her not get into trouble!

This young lady was found as a stray on a busy road, unable to get to safety when thank goodness an older couple saw her and scooped her up - the absolutely adore her but are older and feel as a young dog she will need more activity than they can provide so she’s headed to New England.

We aren’t sure why she’s blind - it appears to be from birth per our vets so this is not new to her and she knows no other life so she’s not spending any time feeling sorry for herself. She’s great with other dogs and a 4-legged friend in her new home would be great but we are also not ruling out anyone without a dog who may have the time and wish to devote as much time as possible to her.

She’s an outgoing friendly girl - you will just adore having her in your home.

If you would like to work with Lenie to help her flourish in her forever home- apply today!

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.
