Sammie is a very sweet and playful 2-year-old Potcake (mixed breed from the Turks & Caicos). She is medium sized at 45 lbs and very well trained.

Look how amazing this girl knows her lessons!!

Sammie is a bit nervous, and while a little slow to warm up to new people, she is not hard to win over.  Once she knows you, she is incredibly affectionate and wants to climb into your soul. With all friends, Sammie gives everyone wiggles and smiles, and she is a big snuggler.  She is also playful and can be quite silly at times.

Sammie is dog selective.  She can coexist with another dog as long as it’s the right dog and introduced correctly. Once she has gotten to know another dog, she loves playing chase, giving kisses, and having a buddy.

Sammie is very well trained with all her basic commands mastered, and she has recently completed a 6 week training program at Gail Fisher’s All Dogs Gym and Inn.  Sammie’s new family will be able to take advantage of a free private lesson from All Dogs trainers who have been working with Sammie before taking her home. Plus, All Dogs will provide two additional follow-up lessons at their facility or they will provide one in-home follow-up lesson (location dependent) - for no cost to Sammie’s new family.  

Sammie is boarding locally in New England!

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.
