Gentlemen (and Ladies), start your engines! The race to find my forever is about to begin!!!! “You know this ain’t no 10-second race. I’ve got nothing but time”. Time to find the perfect home, with toys, treats, long walks, a soft bed (yours if you’ll let me) and all the other bells and whistles you can offer. “I am one of those boys that appreciates a fine body regardless of the make”, so make me an offer I can’t refuse!
My name is Vin Diesel and I am approximately 3 years young. A buddy and I were found wandering the open road looking to score some ladies. When our owners were found, they said they were tired of changing our batteries to our collars. Dude, every fine ride needs new batteries from time to time! Geez! So now my buddy found a new garage to call his own, but I am still searching for mine. I told him “No matter where you are, whether it’s a quarter mile away or half way across the world. You’ll always be family.”
I hope to snuggle in your lap, play with toys and romp in the backyard. I love to give kisses and snuggle on soft beds or curling up on the couch with you too.
I am housebroken, crate trained and walk very well on a leash. I am great with other dogs (especially special needs friends that need a soft, gentle touch) and I love to go for rides in a car. I would prefer to rough house with friends my size when I can. I do silly things too, like normal boxer “pretzel” moves and I also know how to sit, come, shake and I can eve use a doggy door.
If you can offer me an awesome forever, a slick new garage to call my own and a fine ride to tool around exploring life, than be the first to apply! I used to “live my life a quarter mile at a time”, now I long for spending miles and miles by your side and in your heart.
Name: Vin Diesel
Age: 3 years DOB: 10/7/16
Weight: 65 lbs
Vaccinations: Up to date
Heartworm: Undergoing treatment currently
BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS:
Dogs: Yes, he is great with other dogs. He plays with senior, special needs and grumpy ladies and does great.
Cats: He has passed his intial cat test, but he is very interested so we would recommend slow and proper intros and for them to not be left alone until you are assured they will be fine. He is a very fast and spry guy.
Kids: Yes he loves kids. He has been tested with 5 and 10 year olds and did very well. He gets very excited to be with kids, so we recommend 10 years or older so that he won’t knock a smaller child down.
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.
