FOSTERING IN CONNECTICUT!!
Comet is back up for adoption - we had put her on our site at the beginning of this month however we weren’t able to find what we thought would be the most appropriate home for her.
Comet is an owner surrender who we were told didn’t like other dogs and had severe resource guarding issues and with a young child in the home it was just not working out. When she came to us, she went to a foster home with several dogs and she has actually done quite well with them - she plays readily with them and her foster mom feels that Comet would do really well in a home with another happy, confident dog who likes to play as she’s pretty active!
Foster mom says she will try to be ‘tough’ about her toys and food but has zero conviction when faced with give it up - she does. For this reason though we think older children (10+) would be ideal.
Comet would do best in a home that is consistent with training and follow through - an EXPERIENCED dog owner/family would be best for her. Prior to her being surrendered she had sessions with a veterinary behaviorist at Tufts Veterinary School who has expressed interest in talking to her new family to address any concerns.
She’s housetrained and smart too - she knows “sit”, “leave it”, “take it”, “shake”, “high five”, “chin”, “relax”, and “say please” to lay down.
She walks nicely on a leash and likes being outside - she does well in the car and does well at the vet!!
Foster mom is ready to answer any questions you may have! Don’t wait too long though.

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.
