Shasta is an active girl that can play for hours. She would do very well at agility or as a running partner with some training.

Shasta came into the local animal control in Jonesboro Arkasas very pregnant. Three days later she had 7 happy puppies. They have now all moved on and found their forever home, now it is Shasta’s turn.

Shasta loves her foster family. Her favorite thing to do, when not playing, is to cuddle under the covers while her foster mom watches tv or works on something.

Shasta does fine meeting new dogs as long as there are no toys around. She is very stingy with toys and even though she can get along with dogs when just visiting, we think she should live with no other dogs. That way her family and her can enjoy play time without worries.

Shasta is doing good on her house manners and crate training. She loves all people, even the little ones. No matter your age, if you are willing to throw a ball or give her love, she is your new best friend.

Adoption Donation: 300.00

Puppy Donation:  $500.00  (includes spay/neuter surgery to be arranged by Paws New England at a partner veterinarian in several locations throughout New England).  If adopter wishes to have his/her own veterinarian perform the surgery, $100 will be reimbursed upon proof of spay/neuter.

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.
