FOSTERING IN NEW ENGLAND - ADULT ONLY HOME
Evan is your typical (kind of) gorgeous beagle boy - he loves smells in the air, food, nose to the ground, food.
Evan was adopted by us to a lovely family several years ago and did quite well until recently when he decided that he no longer cares for younger children - no fault of theirs - we believe that due to his prior fairly significant injury of a pelvic fracture, handling him anywhere in his tail end is uncomfortable for him.
For this reason, we are looking for an adult only quiet home for this boy - a home with many comings and goings is not for him. Children in and out, no way. No children in the home - if they visit it needs to be sporadic as he cannot be trusted around them per his adoptive family.
Evan has a medium activity level it seems- his former mom said he’s happy to go for a walk or two each day, nothing major needed in that department. However, who knows - if you’re a hiker and want a friend, he may easily rise to the task.
Evan is 100% house trained. He lived with a dog in his prior home - he’s currently fostering in a doggie daycare where it seems he gets a little irritated with too many dogs so we are thinking him getting all the attention might be best for him.
A fenced yard is not an absolutely requirement for him as long as he can get some walks in but one would be nice to give him the ability to get out and about without too much fuss.

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.
