“Oh, little girl of mine in Tennessee” … well, she may not be considered little.

This doll was found roaming in the snow in Mississippi during the recent snow storms in that area - we are so glad that a Good Samaritan saw her and contacted one of the vet clinics we work with!!

While the snow experience may have prepared her for future New England winters, she is in need of love and warmth of a family. .

Tondee is a beautiful 4 year old brindle we believe whippet mix; we asked someone who knows a lot about breed mixes and was told she looks like a Lurcher - “The lurcher is a mixed-breed dog, specifically a sighthound mated with another dog type, most commonly a herding dog or a terrier.”

We are hoping she can get adopted before Disney spots her and takes her off to Hollywood.

Her coat is full of beautiful markings and can mesmerize you like a Bob Ross painting.

She also has a majestic stance that presents her as if she’s a member of the royal family.

Tondee is doing great with her new foster brothers, golden retrievers - she loves going in and out to play with them!!

Tondee is crate trained and keeps her kennel clean and dry. She will whine or tap her feet when she needs to be let outside. She does pull a bit when walking and is working on her leash training skills.

Tondee would love a home where she could hang with her humans and enjoy snuggling on the couch and bed!

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.
