“She has a gentle way of resting her chin on my knee or arm when seeking affection.”
This is from Callie’s foster mom, Nancy, who several weeks ago picked up a dog who barely made eye contact, was anxious and untrusting.
Life hasn’t always been kind to Callie - found abandoned in a parking lot at six months old, she was lucky enough to be fostered and then adopted by one of our volunteers. Sadly, though Callie recently lost her mom; family members tried keeping Callie, but her anxiety made it not viable so they reached out for help and off she went to Nancy’s house to start the next phase of her life.
It has taken some time but this girl has come so far and is ready to move to a home with her new forever person - ideally someone who has all the time in the world just for her, time to give her to adjust and who will understand it might take several weeks for her to rest her chin on your knee.
Callie is approximately 7 years old, a plott hound mix, approx. 50 lbs. Those are just the basics. What’s important about her is the way she looks at you, how she wiggles when she sees you and how she lets you know when she trusts you by resting her head on your lap….
If you have room in your home and your heart for a sweet and deserving girl in need please consider Callie - watching her learn to trust you will do your own heart good.

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.
