Meet Zoey!

We will tell you the worst thing about Zoey right up front - SHE’S LAZY!! Yes, that’s right, she’s lazy and you have to convince her to take walks!! (Not unlike the human writing this bio….) She can be enticed with her most prized possession a ball she loves - that can get her moving. She LOVES playing fetch until she realizes it’s way more fun to have you chase her WITH the ball…. these pitties are no dopes.

Some great things about Zoey - she is housetrained, she knows some commands and is always willing to learn. No crating needed for this girl. She’s good on a leash, kind of likes to stop and smell everything but once she learns you’re running (walking) the show, she goes along quite well. When left unattended, she will pretty much sleep the day away and has never been destructive - we told you, she’s LAZY.

Because Zoey loves to be affectionate and greet you in an exuberant pittie fashion (i.e. jump all over you BUT we are working on it….), we recommend Zoey be adopted by a family without young children.

A family that could give her cuddle time, love, and moderate exercise would be ideal. If interested, submit an application.

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.
