Meet Betty, the gorgeous hound-mix. Betty is a 2-year old gal with a personality that brims over with vibrancy and happiness. Since arriving in New England, her foster Mom reports that Betty’s favorite activities include tail-wags, snuggles, and sniffing around the yard (in true hound fashion). Betty appears to be medium energy. In the backyard, it’s all sniffs and exploring. In the house, she wants loved and attention. She has an adorable way of pressing her whole body against you for love. She nuzzles her little head into your chest and looks for neck rubs (so, so cute). She also wants to play. She’s been wide-eyed and excited at all the toys lying around her foster home. However, once foster Mom started to work from home, Betty curled up and napped next to her.
Betty is currently being fostered with two, 20 lb pug mixes. So far, she has done well with both of them. She greeted them with a wagging-tail, curiousness and then promptly initiated play. She’s already romped around the house with them quite a bit. And then they all promptly laid down for a nap. Betty also appears to be comfortable in a crate. She also asked to go outside to go potty (she simply stood stoically at the door and foster Mom knew she needed to go out). We aren’t sure if she is indeed potty trained but this seems like a good sign…stay tuned! We haven’t had Betty around cats or kids but we can do our best to get find out!
We will most more as we get to know this sweet girl. So far, she has certainly stolen her foster Mom’s heart! Please fill out an application if you’d like to learn more about this girl!

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.
