Charley Terrific is just that, TERRIFIC! Charley is a playful and inquisitive girl, who loves to run and to play with other dogs, play with toys, fetch, and play tug of war. When play time is over, she is happy to cuddle with you on the couch. Charley greets you at the door, dancing with excitement and whimpering for affection. She is a perfect dog for a family looking for an affectionate and loyal dog with personality plus!

Charley will make you laugh with her antics! She will catch her tail and circle around at least 20 times. She loves playing with the water hose (see video). She LOVES to stare out the window and watch the world outside.

Charley is sweet and very smart! She LOVES to snuggle on couch or just hang out with people. If you play tug of war with her and she wins, she will gently place your end within easy reach to start the game again. She had the freedom of a foster’s house but learned quickly that upstairs was off limits. She is house and crate trained, chews only her toys, and barks only when strangers approach the house. She is a bundle of joy, well behaved, and ready to please.

Charley is now living with 4 other dogs, and gets along well with them after appropriate introductions. She has not been cat tested, but based on her style of play, cats are probably not a good match. Charley has not lived with children, though she is great with meeting new people who visit, after the initial excitement of a new person to give her attention. She should do well with older children, who would want to play with her and give her love.

The perfect family would either have a fenced yard and another dog who enjoys rambunctious play, or have a human running partner for her, as Charley loves to run. She loves being outside and is fascinated with squirrels and birds. Charley has always had a yard to explore and had not spent much time on a leash, so we are working on her leash skills, and she has made considerable progress.

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.
