A gorgeous sensitive girl - that’s Falene!!

Take a look for yourself -

*Yes, she can climb trees”

If you are somewhat of a quiet person who leads a fairly hectic free life (or a couple) and you’re looking for a wonderful walking/hiking mate, this is your girl.   Falene is a dog who truly adores her one on one human interaction and will give you all of her undivided attention. 

Currently living with her adoptive family of almost 3 years, she adores her humans and canine sister - what she does not love however are the many guests her parents have over all the time and she’s at the point where she needs to be separated from everyone as she just does not do well in the chaos.

After discussing Falene with a behaviorist, her adopters and PNE feel a new home is in her best interest.  She’s protective of her environment and the issue is that her family is very social with many family members and children coming to the home.  She is quite simply not comfortable.

She’s up to date with all her vaccines and is 100% house trained - her mom is a dog walker and thus she gets a good amount of exercise everyday and her new home should continue her exposure to quality exercise time.  Once you are her pack member, she’s great off leash and enjoys running - she has zero issues greeting new people while off leash.  Her issues are pretty much restricted to her home environment.

Her pluses far outweigh her inability to deal with chaos in her home.  If you leave a quiet lifestyle and are looking for a friend, she’d ideal!  She loves her canine sister and thus if you have a dog she’d be great with him/her - if you don’t she will love having you all to herself.

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.
