Meet Rocky, a sweet boy who requires he be given multiple hugs each day. He’s just a big teddy bear with lots of love to give.

Rocky was in a TN shelter for almost one whole year! Imagine that. He just kept getting looked over despite his wonderful personality. Well, that all has changed and he is now enjoying life with his foster family outside of the “clink”.
He loves running around the fenced in backyard and does it with a huge smile on his face, “ahhhh— freedom”, he says!

Rocky loves other dogs and enjoys sharing his toys.
He is also a lover of all kids and cats.
Rocky does well in a car, too; just sits patiently and takes it all in.

This brindle guy is crate trained and has never had an accident while with his foster family.

Rocky only barks when someone pulls up to the house so he’d make a great deterrent for anyone trying to get in your home without permission.

Rocky is simply an all around amazing dog that will give so much to his furever family!

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.
