Have you every seen such floppy ears?
This sweet and curious boy loves to hang with his people and explore the neighborhood and nearby hiking areas. He walks well on a leash, especially when treats are at the ready, but gets distracted by other dogs and people who get too close. He really loves our nature walks away from traffic and surrounded by trees!
Banner listens well to several commands including: sit, down, paw, wait, and touch. He also knows to make eye contact and wait until he hears “ok” before grabbing treats on walks. He is house trained and will let you know when he needs to go out by heading to the front door and ringing the bells hanging there. This smarty pants learned to do this in just two days!
Banner loves his toys, finding joy in getting the stuffing and squeakers out of stuffed toys and playing tug with his people. He can entertain himself, but will always ask you to play with him first! When he isn’t playing with his favorites, he’s snoozing the days away on the couch or in his foster family’s fenced in back yard.
Banner has a had a tough go of things, moving from place to place and never spending more than a couple of months in one home. As a result, he is a very anxious boy and does not like to be separated from his people. His foster family is working on this by leaving for short periods and taking turns walking out of sight on walks. He should not be left alone in a crate.
Banner has not had tons of opportunity to meet new people or dogs, but he’s had some great interactions with neighbor dogs on leash and loves getting to play with other pups! Meeting new people is scarier, but with treats and slow introductions, these interactions can be positive. To help adopters and this fabulous pup start off on the right paw, PAWS will cover the cost of a training class at an approved certified professional dog trainer for his adopter to participate in after adoption.
Banner is still a pup and will require continued socialization to help him live his best and most confident life. He deserves the best and will make a great adventure buddy to a lucky 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.
