Big dog lovers,,,,,,,,here u go!!!!

This big handsome Fella was found by a foster for the Second Chance Animal Alliance- she brought him home a few months ago and thought perhaps he’d be staying there but we asked the group if they had any great dogs ready to travel north and they sent over this boy’s photos and we definitely wanted him!!

Fella is now in local foster care with one of our volunteers and he’s been a great boy - he is wonderful with the other dogs in his current home and he is great with people - he’s met kids and hasn’t had any issues whatsoever, but he is a little bit too big for smaller children.

Fella is super laid back, but always wants to be included. He truly loves everyone!!!! One thing that is an absolute must for him is a fenced in yard for his safety, as he will wander. I can’t stress enough how much he loves other dogs so a doggy sibling would be awesome for this guy!

Fella listens extremely well but still needs work with basic commands. Also gets Still gets a little nervous walking on a leash, but has made amazing progress!.

Fella is so well behaved in the house and is trustworthy. He sleeps all night in his doggy bed in his fosters bedroom.

This hunky boy deserves a loving home and would be such a great companion for a lucky 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.
