If you are looking for a gorgeous, white, majestic man to be your best friend and loyal companion, than Clay is your man! He loves to go for car rides in the countryside, long walks in the woods and splash in the water whenever possible. He has this amazingly goofy smile and loves to lean on you to show you how much he loves you. He can melt your heart with one soulful glance.

Clay has definitely been through hard times, but is learning what it means to live in the house and off the streets. He will need time to settle in and can shy and timid at first. It is with this in mind that we have come to realize that he needs to be in a home with adults and older teenagers. He is a true love and will the best friend you ever have, he just needs a family to give him time.

He will need slow meet and greets and proper introduction to be able to play with other dogs. He plays very well with the other foster dogs that he lives with, but prefers females. He definitely cannot be around small dogs or cats, as he is too interested and entirely too excited by them. He is almost housebroken, crate trained and walks well on a leash. He will need consistency for a bit until he settles into his new home and the routine. He occasionally pulls in excitement, but is responding to correction well. He loves toys and sleeping on fluffy dog beds, which he never had the opportunity before being saved. Everything is new to him and he is learning how to take it all in. If you are interested in this amazingly beautiful sweetheart, get your apps in now. His striking appearance will put him at the front of the line for adoption.

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.
