They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and that’s a good thing because these pictures are all we have at this time!
Meet Roxie !
Other than the details listed below, we don’t have a lot of information yet, but we ARE working on it! Who doesn’t love a little mystery wrapped up into a cute little puppy package.?
This adorable 4-legged has just entered our rescue! When our partner organizations’ foster homes get a little too full, or when they have a special case they need to make room for, PAWS often steps in to take some of their current rescues before we have all the information.
If these photos here appeal to you, go ahead and apply! That allows our team to do some of the administrative work and speed up the application. Don’t worry about committing yourself. If it turns out that this loveable canine isn’t a good fit for you? We will take all the background work we did for your application and transfer it to a dog that better suits your lifestyle. If this dog DOES fit your lifestyle, you will be at the front of the line for adoption!
Our Adoption Coordinators and fosters will update you as we learn more about this fabulous pup. Watch this space for updates. If you have applied, an Adoption Coordinator will reach out to you to update you first!
PAWS places over 1000 dogs a year in loving homes, but we still hold true to our earliest philosophy: One Dog at a Time. Every dog deserves a perfect home, and every good home deserves a do perfect for them. If you think this could be your new best friend? Go ahead and apply! We are here to work with you, every step of the way

ATTENTION PUPPY ADOPTERS: You will be required to attend training/behavior classes with your new dog unless you are experienced dog owners and your adoption coordinator is comfortable with your experience. This requirement is for the benefit of you and your puppy so if you experience behavior issues you have a point of contact.
PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself before adopting.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
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 newly adopted dog will help others in need
