Mimi has had a rough start to life as a dog who lived on a chain was neglected of food and love. We found her in extremely bad condition. To see her now, you would never know, she never meets a stranger she does not love.
Mimi is a happy, athletic girl, who can also jump so a 6 foot fence would be great, when she has had enough exercise she is happy to be a couch dog. She truly enjoys climbing in your lap for some love. She has really enjoyed her foster’s three year old granddaughter but because she still has some puppy energy, its probably best to have her live with older children. She is working on basic commands, with a little more training she will be great. She is housebroken! Mimi takes treats very gently, and takens direction well. She is a “talker’ but does not bark. She is crate trained and has not been destructive when left out of the crate.
Mimi prefers to play with male dogs her size or larger she would love a running buddy. She has meet several new friends at her foster families house and fits right in. She has been eager to learn and is picking the routine up quickly. We think she loves the attention she is finally getting and has done well learning proper behavior with a family.
Please consider giving this amazing girl an amazing home!

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.
