FOSTERING IN NEW ENGLAND!
Our Rocky Road deserves an updated bio, as he has turned around a lot since he came into his foster home!
He is 7 years, and an active little 11 pound dog. He is fostering right here in New England. Rocky Road is a owner surrender after a family with a toddler decided he was not an appropriate fit for their lifestyle. Paws New England agreed to take this special Yorkshire mix boy, hoping that in the right home he will excel. Rocky adjusted well to his new life, and his prior anxiety also improved vastly.
He is in a foster home with a fenced in yard, and other dogs. He also gets to walk 1-2 miles daily. He in particular loves one of his foster siblings. He has been great with any dog he meets on his walks. He has learned to go potty outside (he was used to be indoors in his prior life, going on pee pads). During the day stays in a pen, relaxing in his dog bed, and he is crate trained as well. He is mostly housebroken and will go on pads or outside. He will be a great companion for a calm 1-2 person household.
Rocky bonded very quickly with his foster mom and she can do anything with him, but as mentioned, he can be protective. He will absolutely need another dog in the household. We will say no to kids and grand kids as he is fearful of them. He is a love bug and loves to snuggle close to foster mom in the evenings.
Foster mom will tell you everything she knows if you are interested- simply apply today! We are learning more and want to give this little gem the time, exercise and the patience he will need.

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.
