This tough, resilient man is amazing! He has such a large heart and loves deeply. This is why we are choosing the Latin version of Ammo which means “I Love” to describe him. He loves his amazing new life, his yummy food, treats and his toys. Especially his toys! They are his ammunition in any power struggle. Just run and grab a toy and life is GRAND! Your friends play chase, your toys play fetch and your foster parents always have more toys in hiding if you lose your favorite ball under the couch.
Ammo was a confiscate/cruelty for neglect by the Memphis Animal Shelter. He is so very happy to be out of his previous backyard and out of the shelter. He is finally getting to experience life and he is loving it! He has been a true joy with his foster family and is easy to live with. He adores relaxing on the bed, playing with toys, giving kisses and hugs and just being himself. He is housebroken, crate trained, leash trained and loves playing with his doggy friends. He also loves to run and play outside and going for long walks and hikes.
If you want to be loved and will love this amazing guy, toy ammunition and all, he is waiting for 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.
