FOSTERING IN NEW ENGLAND
Lottie & Layne - two gorgeous and really wonderful beagles - we’d like to keep them together and think it won’t be difficult as they are the easiest dogs.
They came to us from West Virginia where they were turned into the shelter as “strays running in the woods” - the shelter staff feel however that the people who turned them in were their owners but they didn’t want to admit it.
They weren’t well taken care of but are getting everything they need - they even had their teeth cleaned as they really need it. They are luckily heartworm negative but are on medication for Ehrlichia which is a tick born disease - they came in with tons of the little buggers all over them.
Please consider these sweet dogs for your home - a fenced yard would be ideal for them as they love to be outside with noses to the ground.
We cannot guarantee they are housetrained as they just recently left the shelter to go to their foster home so we will learn more about this and report back.
**Update from Foster Mom
These two are the absolute sweetest. Lottie is the more outgoing of the two. She is always looking to snuggle next to someone. Layne is content as long as he is in the same room as Lottie. He’s a little more shy but warms up quickly. For as sleepy as they are inside, they perk up when they go outside. They love sniffing around. Lottie is completely housebroken and Layne is almost there.
Name: Layne (Male) and Lottie (Female)
Age: The dogs are between 6-9 years of age with Lottie appearing to be the younger of the two.

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.
