FOSTERING LOCALLY IN NEW ENGLAND!!!
Meet Raider Rover and his siblings who are also listed on our site - Ranger and Rosalee
These pups arrived to New England yesterday and we are finding out how special they are - they will need a home absolutely 100% with another dog- no questions - these pups are adjusting to a life without each other after 6 months of being together - it’s not easy for them. Having another dog will help in that adjustment.
They will need a home that will understand that their adjustment period will be a bit longer than most dogs - patience, kindness, and letting them figure it out with your dog’s help and some help from one of our awesome volunteer behaviorists will be needed. They aren’t fearful aggressive or anything like that - just trying to figure out where they are and who we are. There’s a giant big world they haven’t been acclimated to yet - that’s what you’ll do with our help!
They came to us from our partners at Tipton County Paws & Claws - an amazing group who works with the local rural shelters to help get dogs out and into new homes! These pups have been boarding at their center where they get to play and have a blast while awaiting their forever homes. (see videos)
From the little known information, the pups were at their shelter for 3 months before going to Paws & Claws - the shelter staff loved them so much they refused to euthanize them even when super full - thank goodness.
These puppies will head to foster homes in New England before going to forever homes so we’ll have a bit more in terms of their housetraining skills (which more than likely are not great), leash skills (same).
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!
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.

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
