The energy we experience and the names we are given shape our lives every day. Eria means life experiences and this young lady is full of life experiences already! She has an energy that just melts your heart and envelops you with love and warmth. She is beautiful, high spirited, funny and full of energy. She came into our lives with determination and such resilience. The determination to overcome insurmountable odds and the resilience to move past what was and toward what could be.

Eria was found as a stray in Memphis. She was literally standing in the street in front of cars insisting on being helped. She had such soul searching eyes that no one could drive past her. She loves her foster family and her new life, but she is ready to experience more things and spread her wings.

Eria is crate trained and housebroken. She is young and curious, so she is crated during the day to keep her safe. She walks very well on a leash, loves long walks and loves to snuggle under blankies whenever possible. She is playful and loves toys and treats of all kinds. She plays very well with her doggy friends, but prefers to eat on her own if possible.

Eria is looking for more beautiful life experiences to share with a forever family. Will that be you? Can that be you?

Adoption Donation: 250.00

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.
