From my New England Foster Dad!

Well my turn first: I am an Open-Door-Yoga kinda guy, check out my Downward Dawg! Hahaha I’m the best aren’t I??

“He’s a selfishly proclaimed world champion athlete, the most fun 5 to 10 minute tug of war-ist, runner, jumper, (yet faithfully respects a 28-inch tall gate). Adolescently rambunctious!! Pete equally loves either being on a rug or blanket on family room floor or curled up on the couch or recliner with or without his humans, and is UNBELIEVABLY comfortable in his cushioned crate.

Are you looking for a cuddlebug? Well, you found me!! My name is Pete (aka Pogo) and I am a 5.5 year old hound/terrier mix.

I love to play, run, swim, and go for walks. One of my favorite games is fetch!! I would be so happy to go on car rides and hang out with my humans. I am full of life and will give you endless kisses in return.

My foster dad says I’m totally ready for a furever home. I am a loyal companion and really good at showing my affection. Did I mention that I am house and crate trained?

I am a really good student too; I completed behavioral training a while back and was even named Student of the Week. I love doing my homework with my foster dad and he says I learn commands like a champ!

I am eager to go on adventures with my very own family. Please fill out an adoption form for me!

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.
