Rocky is an adorable yorkie guy - 7 years old and 11 lbs soaking wet!!!
This feisty little guy did well in his home until a new baby arrived and thus his family had family members take him into their home but again it was a bit too ‘busy” for this guy - he’s used to a calm, quiet atmosphere and that’s what we are seeking for him now.
His foster mom learned rather quickly that this boy is easily managed with a calm approach and ongoing structure - he’s a creature of habit and for him it’s key.
It appears Rocky was primarily an indoor dog, not getting out into the world often - his foster mom has worked with him on this and he now enjoys going out to explore the yard. He’s interacting with the other dogs in his foster home and is doing great with them.
He is housetrained now but will also use a pad if needed.
During the day, Rocky rests in an indoor playpen when she is away and spends his evenings in the company of his foster mom - he enjoys sitting next to her and rolling over for belly rubs.
We feel it would be very beneficial for Rocky to have another confident dog in his new home - he will take his cues from that dog and it would make his transition so much easier.

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.
