Loving, loyal, beautiful inside and out, awesome….. Just a few of the words Nina’s foster mom uses to describe her. Nina adores people and could spend her whole day doing whatever her people do. She loves to go places, go for rides or just sit in your lap and watch movies.
While Nina loves her people more, she does get along great with other dogs. She will play but seems to prefer a more relaxed style of living. She is living with 4 other dogs and whatever other fosters are rotating in the house. There have been several puppies rotating in and out of the foster home, and she has been great entertaining them, but does get to a point where she goes and hides from them because she is done playing.
Nina adores little people. She can spend all day with them as well. She will sometimes play fetch but really enjoys hanging with them when they are watching tv.
Nina came into the animal control in Jonesboro Arkansas where her foster mom works in October of last year. It didn’t take long to figure out she was pregnant, so she came home and became a Paws New England dog. Unfortunately, her puppies were born with a rare blood disorder and all passed away. Then her foster mom found out she was heart worm positive, which she has finished treatment for. She has been a trooper through it all. Never loosing her loving nature and appreciative of everything.
Nina is crate trained (although she doesn’t really like it or need it), house-trained and has great house manners.

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.
