Now in New England!

Check out Wally having a great time with his foster siblings!

We don’t like to start off by telling you about the terrible conditions some of our dogs come from so we’ll just tell you that this guy Wally - he’s been to hell and back but it hasn’t affected his adorable personality even a tiny bit - tied outside, squalor, hunger,  you name it.

Wally lived outside his whole life until now, but he’s got the whole housetraining thing down, such a smart boy! He’s also learning that he’ll never have to miss a meal again, but he’ll still remind you when it’s time to put the bowl down. After all he’s been through he’s the happiest, sweetest boy ever who can’t wait to hug his people and be hugged in return. And if you happen to have cookies in your pocket you’ll have a friend for life.

Wally is fostering with several other dogs and they all think he’s just a fun guy to hang out with, run around and play keep-away with the Kongs! He’ll occasionally practice the hound howl but just to make his presence known.

See Wally out on his walks - he prances like a pony and would be a fantastic running partner

This breed is so much fun - active and wonderful personalities!!

Adoption Donation: $450.00

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.
