FOSTERING LOCAL IN NEW ENGLAND!
Meet Edwyn! This adorable bundle of energy entered the shelter after his previous owner lost her housing. As you can imagine, he was very scared at first but has blossomed into a great little guy. It turns out that the key to this guy’s heart is food and other dogs. He absolutely loves other dogs (more than people most times) and thinks they should all be his friend — big dogs, little dogs, does not matter to him, he thinks they are all awesome. In fact, Edwyn loves dogs so much that either another dog in the home or the opportunity for doggie daycare is a requirement for him. Edwyn has had some training as he knows how to sit, greets new dogs appropriately, and is almost 100% house trained. Teaching him new things, should not be hard as he loves treats! If Edwyn had a dog to hang out with, a lap to nap on and unlimited treat access that would be his version of doggie heaven. He is a little shy when first meeting new people, but once you are in his inner circle, expect lots of kisses.
We think that Edwyn had never encountered a crate before, as he can be protective of it. He is learning that people touching his crate once he is in it is ok with the help of yummy treats, but he will need continued work on this if he needs to be crated on a regular basis.
Like most chihuahuas, Edwyn is not good for procedural things like vaccines, nail trims, and anything else he decides is not something that he should be doing. He does muzzle well and forgives you quickly.

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.
