Once upon a time, there once was a girl named Phoenix Fire. Her story is one of overcoming insurmountable odds and coming out a true winner. She absolutely loves her foster family and foster doggies. She is extremely calm, quiet, and adores being loved. She has a spirit and fire within her that is addicting and enveloping. She has dreamed her whole life of having a family of her very own and we are determined to make her dream come true.

Phoenix was found living in a crate in the backyard of a home in Memphis. She did not have any shelter from the freezing cold rain and wind that day. She had spent her entire life so far in that crate under those elements and survived. Her spirit was weakened, her life a sad excuse of what it could be. She went to live with a foster family that had 6 other dogs and she has flourished. She has no behavioral issues and they describe her as the perfect little dog.

Phoenix is housebroken, crate trained, but does not require a crate as her favorite thing to do is to snuggle with you. She walks very well on a leash, loves long walks and loves to snuggle under blankies whenever possible. She is excellent with other dogs, playful and loves toys and treats of all kinds. She is extremely smart and willing to learn anything you want to teach her.

If you are able to be a beautiful ending to a sad story of a girl with so much resilience and so much hope for a better future, then you are who Phoenix has been dreaming of her whole life. You are her future.

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.
