Hey everyone -a great dog right here!!!

Instead of giving you a long boring story, why don’t we tell you what’s so great about her…. here goes

~ Loves to spend time in the yard (playing w/toys, sniffing the air and napping)
~ Wants to sleep with her human(s). Snuggle time is mandatory.
~ Great house manners - doesn’t chew anything or counter surf.
~ Likes walks - good on leash.
~ Likes car rides, very good, settles instantly.
~ Likes toys - doesn’t rip the soft ones apart like my beasts.
~ Medium energy but no slouch
~ So pretty, such a goofball, beautiful smile!

She’s fine with other dogs but being an only dog with all her humans we think may be her preference. That’s how she grew up and well, she just likes it. But she’s fine meeting dogs on a walk and has done well in boarding so there’s no dog aggression, again, it’s just what’s she used too!

We’ve been told by her original mom (they adopted her as a small puppy) that she has lived with cats and children since she arrived and does wonderfully with both which is a plus!! We suggest older children as she’s a bit bigger than she realizes and may knock a little one over in her excitement to say hello!

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.
