Don’t have a gymnast in your family - would you like one? https://youtu.be/nyT1RIyrfEA
This Little Stinker (aka Stinky) is a ball of energy and love! Stinky is a petite pit with a big personality! Stinky comes from Florida. His owner surrendered him to us after she had no luck finding a suitable apartment that would allow pit bulls and ended up living in her car. A friend stepped in and took custody of Stinky.
He is now living in that foster home with an older child and another male pit. We would love to see Stinky in a single family home with a fenced yard, with or without another dog or older child. Stinky will most definitely make you laugh! You’ll enjoy his antics. He’s super fun. Sometimes he gets too excited, but he calms down nicely and sucks on his blanket… yep, it’s a stress reliever for him. He loves the trampoline, playing and jumping.
Stinky is very smart, but has never had training, so his manners could use some work. He does know basic commands like sit, paw, lay down, rollover, and speak. He’s a talker and will communicate with you. He’s not much of a barker. He listens well outside and is learning the boundaries of his yard, but we’d love to see him with a fenced yard if possible. He loves his foster brother, who is an older chill dog, but sometimes Stinky (being a young, energetic boy) can be too much for him. He does enjoy playing and meeting other dogs and has many doggie friends in the neighborhood. Stinky is crate trained and potty trained. He loves to cuddle and would enjoy having a family that would make him a priority and give him loads of attention.

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.
