Although we don’t always require a fenced yard and second dog in an adoptive home, for this boy we are - it’s what is best for him- see below.

Pambazo is the definition of resilience and he is now looking for his forever home!

Pambazo was originally found as a stray with an injury to his rear hips and legs. Once we took him into rescue he was rushed to our friends at Memphis Specialty Vets and found to have several internal injuries and a “majorly” fractured leg - the x-rays are stunning.

He got through his critical stage and did really well postoperatively and off to his foster home he went where he’s done very well with his rehab. He’s using the leg now and at this point he’s just about ready for his new home.

Updated 10/24 from foster mom:
Pambazo is such a love in the house. A low-key playful smushy guy. He is also quiet and kennel trained. Outside, he plays well with the other dogs and is submissive even. Rides well in the car. He already knows “sit” and “down” and is in process of learning “shake” and to walk well on a leash.

Pambazo can be timid when meeting new people, so he will do best with in a quieter home with a family that will continue to help with his socialization and confidence building skills. He would love to have a canine sibling. He is a great, handsome, smushy, loving dog who needs to learn to believe in himself!

No small children due to his size and youth, plus he would want to chew their toys.

Would do best in a quieter home with family committed to meeting his needs

Fenced yard and canine sibling required for this boy!! He loves to run, play, and wrestle and his shyness will make this difficult if there’s no fence in the beginning stages of adoption.

Check out his video!

Adoption Donation: $350.00

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.
