Looking for a little love bug? Hippa is your girl! She was found by a good Samaritan and brought into one of our partner shelters with her sister where she is anxiously waiting to go forever home.

Hippa has been with us almost a month now and we can say that she is the sweetest, most loyal pup ever! Hippa loves to play with her 2 (4) legged foster brothers then snuggle up on the couch with her 2 (2) legged foster parents. She walks well on leash, house and crated trained and has no separation anxiety. She loves to steal things and hid them in her crate, but she doesn’t destroy anything! She has some fear with strangers, but warms up quickly. She travels well in the car, but truly doesn’t seem to like to like the ride. Nothing that more time in the car can’t fix. She is very quiet in the house, only barks when she hears an abnormal noise.

Hippa has just the right amount of energy then just wants to hang out in the living room with everybody. Hippa will fit into any home with dedicated owners to help her realize that all people are great. She learns quickly, so with time she will blossom and go from 99% perfect to 100% perfect!

Adoption Donation:  $450.00  

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.
