Peanut has arrived to New England and is settling in so nicely. He has already experienced some snow and a beautiful spring type day on the beach and thoroughly enjoyed both!

Peanut was a loved family member in TN, when his owner become ill and unable to continue caring for him and his canine siblings. PAWS became aware of this and welcomed him into our rescue.

Peanut has adjusted amazingly well with his life transition. He loves interacting with his foster family, enjoys a good walk, a delicious meal and then a solid nap where he can stretch out and dream about his forever home.

Peanut is fostering with a toddler and absolutely adores him! He is a professional snuggler and prefers to be as close as possible to his humans, either curled up on the couch or on your lap. Nothing wrong with a 50+ pound lap dog, right?

Peanut has also been trustworthy in the home, so we think would be fine with free reign. He also will crate, if needed.
Foster mom has been working with him on some basic training to help build his confidence and he excels. He is very smart, eager to please and already knows basic commands.

Peanut is scheduled for an orthopedic vet consult to better assess his knees and hips. We are not sure if future treatment will be needed, but, if so, PAWS will cover all expenses.

This handsome boy lost the only family he knew and so deserves to find another home where he will be treasured and loved. Please consider adding him to your family!

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.
