Buggins loves to have some fun - https://youtu.be/FNH91OSVHLc
What are you waiting for? This magnificent creature is Miss Buggins. She is beauty, strength and perseverance all wrapped up in one package.
Miss Buggins came to us as a stray through a partner rescuer in Memphis, TN. She loves to play with toys, friends and go for walks. She loves treats and riding in the car. Some things are very new to her, so each day is adventure. She is crate trained and we are working on housebreaking. She walks well on a leash, but she will pull at first and if she sees squirrels or other small animals.
She has a few obstacles to overcome, but is well on her way. She was very thin from being on her own and has tested positive for heartworms and Erhlichia. She is currently on antibiotics and it is not affecting her at all. She is extremely food motivated, which is to be expected at this time, but it also helps her with reward training.
She will need some basic obedience classes to continue her training.
If you are interested in a gorgeous young lady to complete your family, then this is her!

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.
