NOW FOSTERING IN NEW ENGLAND!
Caprese is a 1-year old hound/mix who weighs approximately 45 pounds. Caprese is exceptionally gentle and sweet. Caprese is looking for a home who will handle her in a gentle and patient way. Caprese is shy but curious and gaining confidence every day. She approaches new people with a wagging tail and will gently saddle up to you for attention and will offer tons of kisses. Caprese likely didn’t have a rough beginning but was more likely not exposed to much, so she is basically a clean slate. Caprese learns and will try new things with a little bit of encouragement. Caprese is learning to walk on a leash and is doing quite well with sticking close to your side. Caprese will do best in a quiet neighborhood and a fenced yard with people who will take the time to let her explore and sniff while she gets used to her environment.
Caprese loves to play with other dogs. Another playful confident dog in the home is a must for Caprese. Caprese takes her lead from other dogs and it helps to boost her confidence.
Because of Caprese’s gentle nature, she would be a good fit for older kids (over 10) who will understand her shyness and given the time, she will no doubt be their best friend for life! Caprese is still a puppy and occasionally will sneak something to nibble which is easily fixed with plenty of her own toys to nibble. Caprese is housebroken, crate trained and sleeps through the night.
This girl is absolutely one of the sweetest souls you’ll ever meet and has nothing but a heart full of love to give! To watch this sweet girl blossom into the dog we know she can be, will be the most rewarding experience!

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.
