Jump for Joy!

Joy is a very enthusiastic girl, she is always up for a adventure and loves to meet new friends. She gets
along great with large dogs and small dogs, if they are not to pushy. She lives with multiple cats and get along great with them. Joy loves to get on the couch and watch tv or wrestle with her foster bothers.

Joy is the perfect name for such a happy girl, her tail comes to life whenever she sees a new face. Joy loves car rides and is willing to jump in the car to go anywhere. She is crate trained and will go in when you say “kennel”. She also loves her crate and go in on her own when she needs a break from the world.

She was abandoned by her family and we were told they had children, but she has not been around children since being with her foster mom. She will run around the yard for hours if you let her so a very active family would be great for her or a home with another dog that she could release her energy with.

Like many dogs in a new home, it may take her a little while to come out of her shell, but once she does, she becomes very bonded to her people. Adopt her, you will love her!!

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.
