If you’re looking for a sweet, extremely quiet, medium sized companion, Noel is your girl! She is athletic, likes her toys, and playing with dogs she is familiar with. She loves being outside, sun bathing, or investigating the backyard. Noel comes from a hoarder situation, therefore, is in need of working on her social/people skills.

Noel was rescued from a 10 acre property, with a trailer in the middle, nothing but dirt, where she lived with 90+ other dogs and an owner who did not care. Her daily life, until now, only consisted of trying to survive. Now she is in a loving foster home finally able to relax and learning what it is like to be a cherished pet.

She is very timid and apprehensive with new people and situations, therefore needs time and patience to gain her trust. She has NEVER been aggressive in any way. Nor has she been destructive. Once she trusts you, she wants to be your constant companion.

This sweet girl is crate and house trained. She has learned how to ring the bell at the back door to go out. She has never had an accident in her crate. She was originally very wary of a leash, but now gets excited to be leashed up and “go for a walk!” She walks excellent on the leash, and does fairly well on car rides. Another bonus, she requires very minimal grooming! Please give this girl a chance.

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.
