Sweet Denali has found herself a member of the Paws New England family after she was surrendered to us by her owner - we were more than happy to take this sweet girl and her foster just adores her.  

Denali is currently recovering from a fracture of her front leg after jumping off a couch in her prior home - it’s healing well and being monitored by one of our veterinarians with cast changes and x-rays - she should be fine with no residual issues.

Foster mom reports broken leg or no, she’s as active as she can be and having a ball!  Loves the other dogs and wants to play so goodness knows what’s up once that cast comes off.

Obviously this girl needs some training and foster mom will start on that and is very good at it but we recommend further training.

PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time?

Please review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself!!!

Good with Children: Will need to continue socializing, but we think so.
Good with Dogs:  Yes!
Good with Cats:   Curious but gentle.

Puppy Donation:  $500.00  (includes spay/neuter surgery to be arranged by Paws New England at a partner veterinarian in several locations throughout New England).  If adopter wishes to have his/her own veterinarian perform the surgery, $100 will be reimbursed upon proof of spay/neuter.

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.
