Hey There Potential Forever Family!

My name is Tate and I am searching for my forever family, I know hard to believe someone as good looking as me is still up for adoption.

I just arrived from Tennessee with my sibling and I have to say New England is pretty neat!

Like my sister I do have a serious look to me but honesty I am a fun and happy boy, just watch my tail because it never stops wagging.

I am a little shy but my curiosity gets the best of me and before you know it I am the life of the party. Don’t let my fun side fool you, I love to snuggle and would snuggle for hours with you, well unless a toy needs my attention.

I am also going to learn new and exciting things while my foster family is home. I started working on house training, um it’s going ok but I am working hard on it.

I am being create trained and tomorrow I get to start going on walks! I love learning new things, like it’s not ok to grab my foster moms phone and run with it, I thought it was funny! (Phone and foster mom are doing just fine)
I also started wearing a collar and unlike one of my sisters, I love my collar, girls can be such drama queens LOL

I am fostered with two large dogs and I love them! I also am being fostered with a kitty but he is a little older and foster mom says I can not play with him just yet.

I also hope to go to puppy kindergarten so I can play with other dogs and hopefully some day go to obedience classes so I can show everyone how super smart I am.

I can’t wait to meet my new owner (s) but until then I will hang out with my foster family who will teach me the basics so I will be already to go.

Thanks Ya’ll for reading my biography
See ya soon Tate 😀

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.
