Arriving  to New England 7/25/20

Bodeen and Jethro are two super handsome pups arriving to New England this weekend and we do not expect them to last long - this boys are expected to top out at approximately 100 lbs when full grown - they are currently 55 lbs at 7 months of age.

Both boys were surrendered to the West Memphis Animal Shelter by their owner - sadly there are two more brothers at home the owner wanted to keep - we hope they changed their mind.

Still pretty puppy”ish” it will take some patience getting a 55 lb dog housetrained as we doubt they are (but maybe you’ll be pleasantly surprised); they will need puppy behavior school for sue.

They are new to our rescue coming to us from our friends from Paws & Claws in Tipton County  - a great group of women who rescue from the local shelters there in Tennessee.  We had worked with this group at the start of PNE and we are thrilled to be working together again.

Both are great in groups with the other dogs in the shelter so no worries there - a little shy around people at first but that is to be expected.

All of the P&C dogs have been dog tested and have passed with flying colors in play groups (we usually have video) and human tested of course!!  We just can’t promise you right now if they are good with little humans and felines but we can get that done once we move them to one of our foster homes either in Tennessee or New England.

If you like this face, don’t hesitate - fill out an application, we’ll get you some more information and if it’s not a good fit, no harm done - we’re not going to make you adopt a dog that’s not a good fit!!  And if it’s a good fit, everyone wins!!

The dogs coming from our friends at Paws and Claws are rescued from high kill shelters and are then kept in their private center so are not housed in foster homes prior to coming to New England except in certain circumstances when one is available - we cannot therefore guarantee that any dog is housebroken.

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.
