Hello everybody, meet black beauty Randy, his long legs and shiny black coat make Randy a real head turner. Everyone comments on how handsome he is. He is also very loyal and will want to spend time with his family.

Randy wants to be with his people, he is ready for a game of fetch, obedience training, swimming in the water or cuddling on the sofa. He also loves to play with a ball or his new favorite toy piggy, sometimes he throws it in the air and plays all by himself. He is simply all about being with you! He is a wonderful companion dog, he thinks that you’re the center of his world and will give you all the attention.

Randy is a real snuggle-bear, he comes running over to you with his big paws and then wants to sit right beside you. He will look in your eyes and all you see is l o v e.

He loves to go for walks, if you looking for a hiking or running partner, then Randy is your man. He is learning to walk nicely on the leash and rarely pulls. He is also housebroken, doesn’t bark much and is crate trained but spending time in the crate is not his favorite thing, he would rather spend his time with his family.

Randy loves to play with the other dogs at his foster moms home. He plays a little rough but he is also easily redirected. At night he sleeps besides his foster moms bed, no crate needed, he is not destructive and will not chew up anything.

He is a goofy bundle of enthusiasm, so he needs to join a family with older children, his strong waggy tail would knock little children down. He is also learning not to jump on people when he gets excited.

Randy really would like a family of his own, so hurry up and apply for him.

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.
