Enthusiastic, energetic one-eyed rescue dog seeks loving family to shower with love, protect, and learn new tricks with. Loves long walks on long leashes, squirrels, playing catch with favorite pirate hat, squirrels, snacks, squirrels, and cuddling with people. Oh, and squirrels.
Bo is energetic and playful, and bit goofy. He is a quick learner, and has become positively adept at catch, without a drop of retriever blood in him. He is a handsome dog who has a certain elegance (and speed) running, and even walking. He has only one eye, which gives him a kind of inquisitive sincere look.
Bo can get anxious, and needs a stable and calm environment to be his best self. Anxiety for Bo looks like worried pacing and fast breathing -he is not destructive. Also, he can be a bit over-zealous in guarding his property, and often barks when people come into the driveway or knock on the door. However he is incredibly sweet and gentle with his people, and with anyone else once they are in the house or in the yard. And when taking long walks (which he adores), he is not aggressive towards other people or dogs. Of course, if you’re a squirrel, watch out.
He is an extremely fast learner, and would do well with someone who wants to continue teaching him. He does quite well in daycare and meeting dogs on leash - he does have resource guarding behavior, so living with another dog would have challenges and only an experienced dog/bully ownwould considered.

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.
