Looking for your new best friend? Look no farther than Phoebe.

Phoebe is a love bug. She loves to snuggle and be spoiled. She takes treats well and will sit for treats. She is fully housebroken.

Pheobe loves children and her butt does not stop wiggling when she sees them. She is being fostered with an 8 year old human who she just adores and enjoys when the neighborhood kids come to say hello too. She takes a little more time to adjust to the big people in her life particularly men. She is fearful of men not sure what has happened to her in the past to make her feel this way. All we know is Phoebe was left behind when her family moved away and was searching for food and shelter in a rough neighborhood. She needs time to trust the people in her life, but once she does she is your best friend and wants to be everywhere you are and give you all her love.

As with people Pheobe needs time to trust her doggy friends too, she does get along with other dogs with slow introductions. She would not be a dog park or doggy day care type of dog due to her needing time to adjust to other dogs. She is currently fostered with a 10lb dog and 50lb dog. She was almost instantly best friends with with the little dog, but it took more time to trust the larger dog. She enjoys running around playing with both of the dogs now and adjusts her play style to the other dogs.

Phoebe is an amazing dog is so deserving of an amazing forever home!

Please consider this beautiful girl for your next furbaby!

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.
