Adorable Mimi is an 11 lb doxie/chiweenie we think hailing from Louisiana where she was found in a shelter there!!
She does well with her furry foster brother a 55 lb mutt and I suspect she will do well with any resident dogs with proper introductions. However, I am not too sure she would be very accepting of a new dog into what she now feels is “her “ home so adding another dog in a few months or years may be a challenge.
She is a love to the members of her foster home including a. mom, dad, teenage boy and visiting grandpa. However, if not a frequent visitor she can be protective of her home. She was a staff favorite at the high kill shelter she was rescued from and she is a favorite at the vets office where she had been under going Heartworm treatment.
When not going for walks, alerting us to people walking by or getting her belly rubbed In her spare time she enjoys watermelon and chasing flies and squirrels. Mimi is looking for a home with adults and older kids and would do best with someone who is home a lot.
Mimi is is approximately 8 years old and up to date on her vaccinations. She is spayed, crate trained and house trained. She enjoys going for walks, car rides and belly rubs are her favorite.
Poor Mimi came to us with a positive heartworm test - she’s finishing up her heartworm treatment here in New England and is ready soon!!!

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.
