Hi I’m Bouser. I’m a big love bug!

I’m crate and house trained. I love being with my people. I play good with my foster sister and brother. 2 cats live in the house that I’m very respectful of. When they are walking around I go back in my crate. They kinda scare me. I love children! When we go for outings, I love when they give me their attention. I love to chase the ball but learning to give it back. I love toys but the tough toys are best for me. I am a talker when I want attention.

Bouser came into rescue with his mom and siblings and was adopted out as a puppy. Sadly he has was turned into the local shelter after his family realized they had too much on their plate.

Name: Bouser
Breed: Lab Mix
Sex: Male
Age: approx. 2 years old
Weight: 60 lbs
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Vaccinations: current as of March 2018
Heartworm: negative
Microchipped: Yes
Medical issues: Bouser suffers from occasional allergies and the local vet in Texas feels that a Northern climate would be very beneficial for him.

Good with Dogs: Yes, he is currently fostered with other dogs and does well.

Good with Cats: Yes, he is currently living with 2 indoor cats and he has great respect for them.

Good with Kids: Yes, he is currently fostered with a 5 year old and does well. His previous owner has a 6 year old child. Due to his size we don’t think he would be good for a family with small children because he might accidentally knock them over. He sometimes does not know is own size and strength.

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.
