Jack Frost is ready for spring and to be the only frost in your life! Jack is a very sweet dog. He likes to cuddle. He is very docile and gets along with all dogs. Housetrained, great on a leash, likes to play with his dog buddies too. From the day his fosters took him in, he moved in like he had lived there forever. He adjusts quickly and has an easy-going attitude. Knows basic commands and will sit and wait on instructions- it is super cute! He often looks like he is smiling at you when he looks at you. He will let you know when he needs to go outside.
Once he knows your routine, he will gently nudge you and give you kisses to remind you it is time to get up. Loves to cuddle with you at bedtime for a little while then he goes to his own bed to sleep!
He likes to spend his days inside with his people and going out to play with his dog buddies. He likes to play in the mud too so any outdoorsy type people would be great. He enjoys water too. He will go into the shower with you for a bath when you need to give him a bath.
Jack is a great dog and can’t wait to find a great 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.
