Hot dog? No this is Chili Dog! Although he is very cute!
Chili does fine on leash and knows sit and wait. He interacts with dogs of all sizes but is initially timid and shy around them. Chili’s play style is gentle and dainty and tends to hang back from the rough and rowdy crew. I have not observed Chili playing with toys and he doesn’t seem interested in fetch but I believe once he becomes comfortable in his home will be interested in playing.
Chili is initially timid and shy. But once he is around you for a short time, he bonds quickly and loves pets and attention. Chili does fine on car rides but is a little nervous in new situations, so he will need a confident owner who understands his sensitivity. It is apparent that Chili has not always been treated kindly. He is sensitive, smart and wants to please, so gentle, consistent training will make Chili a super loyal companion.
Chili Dog seems to be house trained and seeks out his crate. He is quiet in his crate and in the yard.
Chili has been around other dogs of all sizes and I feel he would do best in a home with another confident dog.

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.
