Don’t let this girls gray muzzle fool you! Sundae is an active, happy, sweet chocolate lab whose tail rarely stops wagging. Found quite thin as a stray, she has flourished since entering her foster home. She looks at you with her soulful eyes and you just melt!!

Sundae is currently living with 4 other dogs of all sizes. She learned the doggie door in less than 2 days! She is housetrained, amazing on a leash and LOVES car rides.

She also loves her people and stays close to you and sometimes on you! She has this quirky jumping that she does (sort of like a bunny) when she gets excited. She loves belly rubs, but sometimes gets a bit too mouthy, but we are working on that. It is truly just play to her, but she is learning that is not welcomed.

Sundae has been fine in the house, not too fond of a crate, but truly does not need one. Because she is a foster, she is currently gated in a bedroom when I leave the house and just naps in the open crate or on the bed. She sleeps soundly through the night.

This girl would love a family that can give her love, exercise and companionship. And she would love a doggie friend, though that is not required. She would be a great candidate for doggie daycare too!

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.
