LIbby hails from the shelter in Brownsville TN Animal Shelter - she was brought to the shelter after a court order removed her from her home. A friend of PNE rescued her from the shelter and got her into fantastic health - she suffered from a strong case of heartworm for which she has been treated successfully and she should have no lingering issues from this very common disease down south.
As you can see from the video Libby does great with other dogs - she plays very well and was a favorite of the shelter staff. Watch towards the middle/end her wiggling she’s so excited to play!!! https://youtu.be/K28GLKNI9vA
Now in foster care for 3 months, she continues to do amazing - loves humans and canines alike - we also have video of cat tests where she seems to be not too interested in either cat (two tests); happy to share those if you’d like.
Her pics make her look bigger than she is - when rescued she was only 20 lbs but is now approx. 40.
From her Foster MOM: Libby has a quiet and extremely gentle soul. She prefers the comfort of a quiet home and simply lives to snuggle with her humans. She walks well on a leash, is crate trained.
Libby dislikes loud active environments. Likes snuggling with her humans and playing with other dogs. Crate trained - quiet and keeps crate dry and clean. No medical nor behavioral concerns except for the dislike loud active environments (she tries to not have to deal with them).

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.
