Symphony is doing wonderfully now that her babies are getting ready to go home - it’s her turn and we have no doubt everyone will see what an amazing little creature she is.

Currently fostering in New England, her foster family absolutely adores her - she loves the children (all humans really) in the home and just loves getting attention. She wags her tail at the other dogs in the home and was great with the dogs in her prior foster home.

From her foster mom: She is sooooo sweet!!! Craves attention and loves my older kids, my youngest is 10. I think she would be great with younger kids too as long as they are respectful. She is very gentle and just loves attention.

Her puppies go home on or around 6/1 and we’d like to send her off as soon after as possible - she is schedule for her spay surgery at the end of May and will be ready then!

No felines for this girl - as lovely as she is, she shows way to much “not so nice” attention to them -everything else is great!!

Her Backstory:
Symphony was pulled from a local shelter, after giving birth to three sweet babies, while there.  She was taken into foster care when pups were just two weeks old.  he was a little shy at first, but now grins and plays with me during breaks from her pups.  She is a terrier, so she is pretty active, but not overly so.

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.
