My name is Tito. Or as my foster Mom likes to call me, “Tito Bo Bido”.
I am a teeny, tiny 7 lb, 1-year old, love-bug who is currently searching for my forever home.
I’ve got a couple of things in mind in a forever home. First, I really want a home that will understand my belly rub needs. I love belly rubs, love them. And I like to make sure that there are plenty of belly rubs sprinkled throughout my day. To ensure this, I will jump into your lap, on my back and present you with my belly WHENEVER I get the opportunity. I hope this will be okay with you. I assure you that each time, I will be adorable. Outside of belly rubs, I like to be held in general. I would like to be carried around and patted and coddled by my humans.
I also really want to make sure that I am in a forever home that has a lot of toys around. At 1-year old(ish), I am a playful guy. I can really keep myself entertained with enough toys around. Although, I would certainly love to play tug from time to time with my humans and maybe even a canine or feline sibling. Cats? Do I like cats you ask? I LOVE THEM. If you happen to have a cat, you can imagine a lot of this happening in your home: https://youtu.be/_lMKKlRTV34
I also really need a forever home that will be patient with me. While I’m a little dog with a BIG personality (so much cuteness and spunk says my foster Mom), I do have some things that make me nervous. I was, after all, found all alone as a stray in an abandoned building, trying to fend for myself. We’ve learned that I really don’t love the crate. While I was desensitized to it while I was living down south (I’m from Texas by the way), when I came up to New England, it was clear to all that the truck ride in a crate was a lot for me. I’m a lot happier when I am not in a crate. It also takes me a little bit of time to warm up to new people. I really would rather that they sort of ignore me at first while I hop around them and pretty boy jump as I smell them and get used to them. Once I am comfortable, I promise to jump right into their lap (when the opportunity presents itself) and offer my belly for a belly rub. If someone pets me before I am ready, I get a little grumbly. Sometimes I may bark at new people too. My foster Mom makes sure that I have a leash on when new people come over to the house so I feel safe and can stay by her side. I really appreciate that because I do love my people. They make me feel so safe and happy.
My foster Mom says that I will need some training on basic obedience stuff. She keeps trying to get me to sit and stay. I’m really not sure why… But I think after a training course, I’d get the hang of it pretty quickly. I’m a smart guy and I REALLY want to please my people. Plus, as I mentioned above, I will do just about anything for a belly rub!
So what do you think? Are you interested in meeting me? I promise to wow with you my adorableness and ooou you with how teeny tiny I am. Apply now and connect with my foster Mom!
Looking forward to meeting 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.
