Betsey is an 11 month old hound/ lab mix fostering in New England. If her pretty brown eyes don’t win you over, her polka dotted belly will.
She arrived from Tennessee very underweight with thin hair, but her coat is beginning to fill out, and she is gaining the weight she needs. Where her hair is still fine, she will be prone to sunburns.

Betsey, loves attention and is very energetic. She seems submissive to both humans and dogs. She has not been exposed to children, and because of Betsey’s age and energy level, we do not recommend a home with children under 5.
Her ideal home includes a family that will include her in outside activities like hiking or long walks. She will need a fenced in yard so she can run around and burn off all her puppy enthusiasm. She would love to have a canine sibling to play with.

Betsey is a quick learner, and her family should commit to formal training classes. She consistently sits for her food and is catching on to basic commands.
Her leash walking skills aren’t perfect, but she is showing improvement. She is motivated by praise and really wants to please her people.

This girl would make a great addition to an active family.

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.
