George is a super handsome hound - we had thought we found his forever home but his “exuberance” was more than they could handle and he needed additional training.

Problem solved- he’s been with one of one of our awesome foster moms who has worked with him and feels he’s going to make someone an amazing 4-legged friend,

George is learning not to bolt out the door - he just loves being outside and he is learning to “wait” patiently at the door, or as patiently as a coonhound about to go outside can be!

George is getting to be really great at walking on a leash but in true hound fashion, he loves his squirrels and is learning to not be as reactive to them on his walks. She is working with him on leash walking and encountering other people and dogs as well - he gets excited, she’s teaching him it’s patient waiting game!!

He is housebroken and loves to play tug of war. He sleeps in his crate at night and eats his dinner there, but other than that George is just part of the family.

George is best suited for someone who can keep up with him. He can be a bit pushy so keep that in mind if you have little kids, older parents, etc.

George loves his belly rubbed and loves to cuddle up when watching TV.

He would LOVE to have another dog in his home or at least an ability to go play with some during the day -daycare or doggie play groups - he has to burn off that energy.

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.I.
