Hi, I’m Zoey! It’s hard to resist my big grinning beautiful face, isn’t it? I am a friendly and sweet pit bull seeking a loving companion. In truth, the worst thing about me is that I’m lazy. A typical morning for me consists of sleeping in late, breakfast, then time in the yard. I do my business and love to sniff outside. Taking an actual walk is way more effort than I prefer, so I’d rather just hang out outside in a fenced yard or supervised on a tie out. Occasionally I’ll bark if I hear someone come near the house; otherwise, I am quiet and chill and could spend hours just smelling the fresh air and listening to the birds sing.

A few times per day, my foster mom plays with me. I’m good for about 10 minutes before I get tired. I love the company of other dogs and will run with them. I also enjoy playing ball with my human. I don’t really need a job to do; I’m happy living a leisurely life. I am house trained and trustworthy to free roam while my human works. I do love people, all people, and would love some company during the day. After dinner, I get the zoomies for about 10 minutes, then I’m tuckered out and just want to curl up with my human and watch tv.

I’d love to sleep with my human at bedtime, but because I’m a loud snorer, I usually end up sleeping along in a separate room (which I’m also okay with). I am big and strong, but a super sweetheart. In my past life, my humans found themselves homeless and living in a car, and so for awhile, I lived in a car. Even still, I don’t mind cars, but please don’t leave me unattended in one. Overall, my foster mom is an older lady and can handle me just fine. A young or older couple or person (preferably with another dog) would be my ideal home.

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.
