This is Autumn! She is a 30 pound one year old mixed breed. It looks like she may have some English Shephard, maybe Husky in her, but we are not sure what contributed to her smaller size. Whatever mix she may be, her foster mom has many descriptive words for her including sweet, obedient, mellow and loving. Cannot do much better than that!!

Autumn was removed from a neglect situation along with several other dogs. She is doing great at her foster home. Her favorite things to do are just meander about the backyard taking in all the smells and lounging on the porch dog bed (weather permitting). She minds well and get along with all the other dogs in the home, no matter what size or age. She adores attention and loves all, canine and human. She is crate trained and housetrained (with a doggie door).

Autumn has an injured right front paw. It appears to be an old injury that was never addressed. Due to a joint contracture, she walks on the second joint of the paw, but does not appear to be in any discomfort. PAWS is going to have her evaluated by an orthopedic vet to learn whether this can be repaired. PAWS will cover any medical costs associated with this.

This girl is truly so special and so deserving of an amazing forever home. Could it be yours?

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.
