Fostering in Rhode Island!
Silas is such good boy - he was found sitting in front of a store that has been closed for some time - a few people noticed him just sitting there, almost like he was waiting for someone to come out. :(
He landed at the West Memphis he is dog and they instantly fell in love - his photo was posted on their “intake’ list and our co-founder emailed immediately to say Paws New England must have that dog - he’s just adorable, slightly senior and could we please please have him and here he is.
His foster says he’s dog and cat friendly; he has been running around with a little white Shih Tzu and a little Chihuahua rat terrier; he is very people, friendly, loves and likes lots of attention.
We are updating to say no kids for Silas even older ones - over 15 or so would be fine - he seems to be a little bit socially confused - he will come to you for pets - he may then growl and stop - but he may trick you an attempt a little bite. You will need to learn his signals!
When you pet him or rub him he will start growling, but his foster has figured out it’s his way of talking - if you stop petting him he starts doing it again.

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.
