Onyx Storm’s short life has had a lot of rainy days but with resilience, he has weathered the storms. Through it all he has kept his puppy-like playfulness, and love of people, toys, snuggles and belly rubs! He is strong, loyal and as beautiful as a shiny piece of onyx.
He has not let his past cloud his future - he knows his forever family is out there waiting to find him. He has weathered insurmountable odds.. from being a stray in a rural shelter, to being adopted and then found abandoned on the streets, in not only another city, but another STATE!
He is strong, but wants a forever family to call his own!
He loves to be loved and gives the best, most appreciative hugs and kisses.He is housebroken, crate trained and is working hard on his leash manners and doing great! Onyx would love a home with a fenced yard so he can run around and play his favorite games, ball & Frisbee, and a family with the time to continue his training. He loves to show you how smart he is and how much he LOVES working for treats!
Onyx is good with other dogs his size (he lives with another dog in his foster home), but is just a little too interested in playing chase with kitties and small animals, so home without would be best. A home with children over 12 ( or dog savvy children 8+) would be best due to his puppy-like playfulness and his size.
If you feel as if you’ve been struck by lightning and would like to share sunny days ahead, Onyx Storm is waiting for you!

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.
