Inez - her life is up up up now!! She’s arriving to New England on 4/9 and will be with one of our awesome foster moms!!
She’s an approx. 3-4 year old 35 lbs peanut who was rescued from a not so hot situation - our friends in Memphis at All 4’s Rescue got her owner to surrender her as she was clearly not cared for and had a uterine prolapse. This was obviously taken care of right away and she then landed in an awesome foster home in TN where her foster mom has really cared for her so well!!
From her Foster Mom in Memphis:
The perfect foster home for Inez is one with other younger dogs that can participate in and model play and social behavior. Inez is very affectionate and loves attention. She would love a foster home where she can spend a lot of time with her humans. Inez came to me in starvation mode where she was constantly searching and trying to obtain food. She has since gained a significant amount of weight and has become trusting that she will continue to receive food on a regular basis
Inez is very friendly with my other dogs. She is learning how to play with toys and how to play with other dogs. I have only had her on a leash a couple of times, and she seems to do fine.
This girl is crate trained and will go into her crate with a little command of “kennel up.” She will complain a bit if you leave the home but does settle down - she’s got some separation anxiety but nothing too bad and we expect she will get used to you leaving when she is sure you’re coming back. She seems almost housetrained which we will continue to work on.
We’d really like to see Inez in home with another dog and a fenced yard - her foster mom in TN feels she’s a bit of a flight risk and will a run for it if a door is left open - so we like to avoid that at all costs of course!!
Inez is a sweet, affectionate, quiet and laid-back dog. She can become very energetic and playful when engaged in play behavior with other dogs. She is extremely loving and affectionate. She spends a lot of time sleeping in my lap. Because Inez had limited interaction with humans (she was left alone, chained up, with her previous owner), she definitely needs to continue to be socialized, walked in public, and taken out to experience the outside world in order to build more confidence with new situation and people.

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.
