FOSTERING LOCAL IN NEW ENGLAND!
Fisher needs a dog - we’ve decided this boy would do so much better with another playful dog in his home - he’s much more relaxed and you can tell just feels better so we are relisting him and asking that you have a playful, confident dog in your home if you apply for this handsome boy.
Here’s Fisher - he’s all legs - not even kidding - he wraps them around you and hugs!!
This cute boy was adopted to a lovely family who lived in the city and found the city life was not to his liking - so many bikes and cars and trucks were just too much for this guy; we are looking for some suburbanites for him!! A fenced yard with some room to run would be fantastic and someone willing to work with him on some exposure to those things that still make him a little uncomfortable - meeting dogs and people while leashed - off leash, zero problems.
Fisher absolutely loves people!! He will snuggle right up into you and wants to be around you at all times. He does have typical puppy energy, and is definitely on the bouncier side.
He has done well meeting other dogs and though he’s loving the attention on his own, we think he should be paied with another dog.
Fisher would be best placed in an environment that’s willing to cater to his energy levels and keep him active, More importantly, as with any puppy, someone who is willing to take the time to train him, as this little guy has only had minimal “basics” taught to him in his first 6 months.
Please consider this adorable boy. He promises to greet you with total body wiggles, a big smile, and a wagging tail!!

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!!!
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.
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.
