Lena is a very happy go lucky pup, she loves people, especially the ones she considers her family! Could that be you?!
She enjoys playing with other dogs all ages, sizes, she only sees them as a new friend, because of this, she’d definitely need a home with a tolerant dog, she doesn’t understand why the seniors here get grouchy with her when she wants to play with them! She is also certain cats should play with her, so a dog savvy cat would be great.
She LOVES children, but due to getting easily excited, small kids might get knocked down accidentally. She is crate trained, still working on house training, she also knows to sit, lay down, spin, and paw. She is learning more each day, extremely food motivated and eager to please. She is a bit of a digger. Besides that, she’s a joy to have around. She loves car rides and is discovering a love of playing in the pond!
All in all, Lena is a bright light in life, her happiness is contagious. I don’t think she ever has a bad day, always happy and always ready for the next grand adventure!

PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself!!!
Puppy Donation: $525
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.
