Gorgeous Graycie was rescued from a dog hoarding situation during a unusual southern snowstorm. The pups were all sweet, submissive and dog friendly, but needed socialization with humans since have had limited contact with them. The dogs lived outside in a small pen with no shelter, but that is all behind them now!
Foster Update 4/5:
Graycie is a very quiet chill girl. A little cautious. Does not like confrontations, such as dogs barking or running at her. She is totally housetrained and although crate trained, she can be trusted to be left in the house alone with no issues!
A quiet home with no little children would be best for her. With her cautiousness, she will need a home with structure, daily routine and patience to help her feel comfortable. She has gotten comfortable here quickly where there is only me and my pups.
She is friendly with other dogs but is a bit timid, so hasn’t really played with any others yet, but she goes outside with my senior male and there are no issues or aggression. She doesn’t play with toys as of yet.
Graycie does need leash work. She hasn’t been around other dogs when on leash. She doesn’t like them barking at her when she walks past their crates, so I help guide her past if they are being noisy.
She comes when called in my fenced yard, now that she trusts me.
This beautiful girl is totally crate trained, but has been trustworthy when left outside of her crate while at home. She has also been housetrained since coming into her foster home. She will wait at the door when she needs to go outside.
She sleeps where she chooses – either in the bedroom or living room by herself.
She has not shown any guarding tendencies and allows me to pet her head while eating.
Graycie did test positive for heartworm and has begun pre-treatment. PAWS will guide you through her treatment (and of course, foot the bill).
This girl is very very sweet and quiet with a little bit of shyness. She now likes to have her fur brushed and belly rubbed. And I just love being able to do that.
Please consider this special pup.

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.
