Fall is in the area and the fun, Pun Mommy is just what the Doctor ordered! I am as sweet as homemade pie, as playful as a teenage girl on a water slide and give kisses like a good southern soap opera. I love to play in the rain, skip to my own beat and dance like there is no tomorrow. My foster Mommy is the cream of crop, but I am looking for my love you to the moon and back, stories before bedtime and Rainbow Sherbet spoiling new family to love me forever! Are you game?

My name is Luna Tick! I was a pregnant stray that came into one of our partner shelters in Bartlett, Tennessee (outside Memphis). You know Memphis? That’s where they say Elvis lives. I don’t eat shoes, but Blue Suede Shoes sure do sound Yummy! I am the Mommy to the Pun Puppies and I am looking for an amazing home of my very own too! I am housetrained, crate trained and am learning to walk on a leash. I do try to pull at first, but I correct with a savvy owner. Prior to having my babies, I was great with all dogs, but then my hormones went way out of whack and I had to protect my babies. At this time, my foster Mommy thinks I would do better in a home without other dogs to give me some time to settle in and not be on baby patrol. I am entirely too interested in kitties (and not in a good way), so no kitties for me! I love toys, hugs, and showing you how much I love you. I am also all about snuggly blankies and I absolutely adore every person I meet. I think that I am the belle of the ball. At one time I had an imbedded collar, so I have a scar on my neck from that and I had to recently have surgery for a mastitis, but I am healing beautifully.

If you can give this beautiful girl a home of her own, with lots of love, endless treats and snuggle time, than she is waiting patiently for you!

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.
