Allyson was surrendered to Memphis Animal Shelter. She was saved in the nick of time and now can't wait to find a family to call her own! She is a very sweet and playful pup! She loves to romps around and would need an active family. Allyson is learning the basics, learning commands, and will need to continue working on the training any young active dog needs. No worries there, as she is a very smart girl!! Allyson will make a great addition to an active family with her friendly and loving personality!

Good with Cats: No Adoption Donation: 450.00 IMPORTANT INFORMATION: 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.

 . Antique Rose .  . Antique Rose .  . Antique Rose .
  • Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
Rose is a sweetheart and wants nothing more than a soft place to rest, some outside time where she can stretch her legs for just a few minutes, some regular good quality meals (no junk food please since she is trying to get her girlish figure back) and lots of pets and snuggles. She loves people and does just fine with other dogs. Rose is content with being in her golden years and leaves most of the playtime to the younger dogs. But occasionally, she feels chipper enough to run across the backyard to greet us. Rose hasn’t shown much interest in toys. And isn’t really food motivated, but a kind word, pets and belly rubs (LOVES HER BELLLY RUBS) are all she needs. Of course, she has a lot of belly and although is doing really well on her weight loss program, she still has about 20 more pounds to lose to be in good weight. Although Rose was owner surrendered because ‘she peed on the floor’, she has not had a single accident in the shelter or in foster care. She is leash and crate trained. She really enjoys a soft couch, but will be content with a nice dog bed. Rose immediately settled into a pack of 8 household dogs and several fosters. She pretty much ignores the cat and the livestock. Rose has been really easy to have around and I will never understand why this girl could have been surrendered. Rose will be a great ‘hot chocolate in front of the fireplace’ or sunbathing while working in the yard kind of companion, and will be so content with that role. Name: Antique Rose Breed: Lab mix Sex: Female Age: 9-10 years Weight: 80 pounds (ideal weight should be closer to 65) Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to Date 1/18 Heartworm: negative Microchipped: Will be prior to adoption Medical issues: Rose is a senior so she is a bit slower. The vet feels once the weight comes off she should be getting more spring in her steps. BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Dogs: Yes, good with small to large dogs Good with Cats: Yes, currently lives with an indoor/outdoor cat Good with Kids: Has been exposed to preschool age children and has been fine Adoption Donation: 300.00 IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog.

We are calling April our miracle girl. She was found in a garage very sick and needing critical care. Our partner shelter in TN came to her rescue and provided around the clock care until she was out of the woods. This poor girl was unable to clot and was likely poisoned with rat poison. After receiving the critical care she needed and vitamin K for 30 days this girl is on the mend! April enjoys romping and playing with her canine friends. She has a rowdy play style and would do great with another dog who matched her play style. She has recently joined a foster home in TN in preparation of traveling to New England. As we learn more about her personality we will update her bio!

 . Bridgette .  . Bridgette .  . Bridgette .
  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
This beautiful girl, and two other doggie sisters, came to us when their daddy suddenly passed away from a heart attack. His family was unable to care for the 3 dogs and asked us to help find them good loving homes. Bridgette is a sweet. calm, well mannered, housebroken girl. She keeps her bedding and toys neat and doesn't shed enough to sweep up. She's very smart and learned the routine of her foster home right away. Bridgette loves affection - especially tummy rubs. She can't wait to find her forever home! Check out her video! https://www.facebook.com/deborah.h.testa/videos/10207061278680019/ UPDATE FROM FOSTER: 1/29 When Bridgette arrived at my place she was clingy and insecure. When introduced to new dogs she was very scared and visibly shaking, but is making great progress! Bridgette is a very affectionate, fantastic dog who would do best going to a home as an only dog, with a mature canine sibling that doesn't get in her face, or to an experienced owner who will be very patient socializing her. Bridgette doesn't really play with other dogs. She just walks around and sniffs. But loves her people. She doesn't like to be left outside alone; gets cold very easy; never potties indoors; isn't destructive unless she is very stressed or upset; and doesn't bark indoors but will bark when she's outside and sees other dogs. Bridgette is a great girl who would love a low key family to call her own! Update from Foster 1/18/18: Bridgette is fostering with dogs and cats and doesn't play with or pay attention to them. All Bridgette really wants is human attention and love and she is a sweetheart! She is not fond of the crate so we are looking for a family where someone is home all day and would not need to crate her. She is worth it! Name: Bridgette Breed: Pit bull mix Sex: Female Age: 3-5 years old Weight: 48 pounds Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Negative Microchipped: Yes BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Children: Is jumpy when first let out of her kennel. May not do well with small children because of her size. Good with Dogs: Fostering with other dogs and does okay, but some dogs make her nervous. May prefer to be only dog, but would do well with a mature canine sibling who gives Bridgette her space. Good with Cats: Passed her initial cat test. Currently fostering with a cat.

Arriving to New England 1/12/2017 into foster care!! Brooks was a resident of the Tipton County Animal Shelter for many months which is no small feat - space is always an issues but some of these dogs tug at the shelter workers' hearts and Brooks is one of those dogs. He was there from May until December - amazing really. Along with the shelter staff, the ladies from Paws & Claws (a group that works with the Tipton dogs) spent a lot of time with Brooks helping him to learn that people are okay, mostly nice and can be trusted. It took him a long time but he's coming around and is doing so much better now. He really enjoys being around other dogs and does well with both female and male dogs, eagerly wanting to interact with them! He needs another dog in his forever home to help him build his confidence. Brooks needs an experienced dog owner who understands that he will need time and patience with continuing to adjust to humans and human interaction. He is very hesitant around humans currently because of his past. He is getting better slowly and is doing well on a leash. Once on leash he will take treats and allow for pets. With a stable family environment and training he will blossom into an amazing dog. Brooks is so deserving of this second chance at life! Please consider being his savior!

  • Beagle, Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Arriving to New England on 12/23!! Carol Pelletier is the mommy of the Walking dead pups who have all been adopted and loving life in their forever homes. She was dumped in the woods pregnant and hungry. Her foster mom would leave food out for her and gained her trust. When Carol trusted her, she gathered up her 8 puppies and brought them to her yard. All of her puppies are in their forever home and now it is time for her Forever home. Carol is a very sweet dog. She loves all other dogs, cats and people once she knows them. She is a little shy at first, but once she gets to know them she is as gentle as they come. She scratches at the door to let you know she has to go potty, Her foster mom says she has the most beautiful spirit. Please consider this gentle soul as your new family member. She deserves to be loved and cherished. Update: Now in New England! There is no sweeter dog than Carol - after all she's been through she warms up quickly and has decided it's way better to trust her people than be afraid of them. She craves attention and will wrap herself around her peoples' legs as if to say "I'm here, don't forget me!" She gets along great with all the dogs in the house, but will give a quick "get out of my face" if she's being annoyed! We don't think Carol would be happy being alone in the house all day, so a home with another dog or someone around more often to keep her company would be ideal. Carol is a very smart, happy and quiet girl; she'd love to find a family that will appreciate all she has to give - is that you?

 . Channing .
 . Channing .  . Channing .  . Channing .
  • Black and Tan Coonhound, Treeing Walker Coonhound
  • Spayed/Neutered
Fostering in New England!! Must have another friendly and confident dog in the home- no exceptions!! Channing was one of seven dogs rescued from a neglectful property in Tennessee. They grew up in a bleak backyard with no socialization, veterinary care, or human companionship. When their owners grew weary of the seven dogs, they called animal control to come and get them one by one. When Paws New England learned about this family of hounds, we simply had to get involved. We rescued all seven. Five have found their forever homes. Channing was one of the last to be rescued from the property. He spent months in boarding before moving into a New England foster home. Channing is blossoming in his foster home! His foster mom reports he's doing really well on his basic training. He's already mastered sit, go to bed and leave it. He continues to work on paw, down, come and watch me. He has learned to take treats gently and is completely house broken. Channing lives harmoniously live with his canine foster brother, Buddy, and 2 feline foster siblings! He continues to work on his confidence building, but we have big hopes for this boy! New situations or dogs can still be a little scary for him, but he's getting better every day! Channing is loves going for walks or long hikes with his foster dad. He's happiest when he gets plenty of exercise and play time! His foster mom reports that he loves walking around with his favorite stuffed animal in his mouth and it's absolutely adorable! Channing takes the lead from his friendly and confident foster brother, Buddy. We'd love to see him in a home with a friendly canine sibling to show him the ropes. In fact, this will be critical for Channing's overall longterm growth. He will need a patient and loving family who can make a commitment to providing him with the exercise his needs and the time he deserves to adjust to a new home. If you would like to be part of Channings fairy tale ending, we'd love to hear from you!

Meet the Coop-ster. Here local in New England!! Cooper Aroo is as sweet and gentle as they come. You won’t find a more loving soul! He joins PAWS from our partner shelter in TN after being surrendered by his owners. We think this handsome boy deserved better than that and cannot wait to find him a special forever family that will cherish him. We do not know Cooper's past, but his body tells a not so pretty story. PAWS has been working with specialized vets to get him back on track. His improvement has been amazing thus far and he has become the favorite of everyone who has met him. Cooper will not ask for much during his retirement years. A soft bed (or even better, a couch!!!), leisurely walks (he is great on a leash) and of course, ear and belly rubs, as needed. He also enjoys the outdoors and lounging on the deck or on the grass. And the Coop LOVES car rides, so anytime u want company for errands, he is your man!! In return, he will be your big ole gentle best friend (and maybe a binge TV partner). You will be entertained by his loud groans, the way he flops down anywhere and anytime he feels the need. He has an old man attitude with glimpses of ornery young behavior. And he does everything at his own pace (usually slowly). He is the perfect gentleman in the house and gets along with every human and canine he meets! Cooper does require thyroid pills and eye drops (for dry eye). Cooper is definitely special. All is takes is just one look at you with his soulful eyes. You can see the appreciation that he has for everything that he is given and every loving touch that comes his way. This sweet boy is ready to be the love of your life!

Hi, my name is Teddy! I am just over a year old. About a month ago, I had a medical emergency and Paws New England stepped in to save me. I am fostering with a kind family in Tennessee currently, and I am ready for my forever home! I love people and am very friendly!!! I love to give kisses! When my people are calm, so am I, but when they get a ball and want to play with me, I light up and get a bit wild! I have a good amount of energy and would enjoy daily exercise. I love playing. I would prefer not to be alone as loneliness makes me anxious so please watch over me well. I am crate trained and potty trained and will let you know when I need to go out. My leash manners are okay. I do enjoy children, especially older children that can play ball with me. I have not had much exposure to other dogs or cats, and I am dominant and territorial with strange dogs and will need to be taught how to socialize well with dogs. With training, I can get there. But for now, I am looking for a forever home as the only dog. If you are interested in learning more about me, please submit an application.

  • Black Labrador Retriever, Labrador Retriever
Lost and wandering on a back country road, Duke couldn’t understand why he was so alone, hungry, and scared. When the car stopped, and the man got out and called to him, he was so excited! Duke happily hopped into the car and let the man bring him home to K9 Savior Foundation. In the past months he found that the nice man, Parish, was one of the wonderful people at the rescue who took care of lost and desperate dogs. Duke is a happy boy with all the wonderful traits that make Labs such awesome dogs. He’s smart and friendly, and eager to please. He needs a family who wants an active young dog to go hiking and exploring. He needs someone who has the patience to help him learn how to live in a home and be a part of a real family.

Introducing the very sweet and loving Elijah. This sweet boy just wants everyone to love him. He is a little shy when first meeting people, but it does not take him long to be in your lap trying to get all the love he can soak up. He is a smart boy that is always willing to please especially when he can get love. He was a stray brought into Jonesboro Animal Control. Because he is so shy, he was getting over looked and passed by. Now he is a PAWS dog in a wonderful foster home learning what it is like to get love all the time. Elijah has been in his foster home for a little over a week and is doing awesome. He is working on his crate training, house training and just learning all kinds of stuff. He is doing awesome at all of them. Elijah loves his 4-legged foster siblings and has not met a dog that he does not like. He will make a great addition to any family. He will need a family committed to basic obedience training to help him continue to grow into the amazing dog that he is showing his foster mom.

Brand new to PAWS!! Meet Ellie! How gorgeous is this gal? This girl has come a long way and is finally ready to find her forever home. When she first arrived at the shelter she was absolutely terrified. She was too afraid to walk on leash or even move. With patience, love, and hard work Ellie will now walk on leash and is blossoming! Ellie loves running and playing with her doggy friends. She has since joined a foster home where she is living with indoor cats and older kids and doing well. She is still on the shy side, but just SO sweet! We'd love to see Ellie join a loving and patient home where she can continue to work on her confidence. We expect there will be an adjustment period for any new home she joins, but we promise she is so, so worth it!

Now Fostering in New England!! Fiona is such a beautiful girl, inside and out! Fortunately for Fiona she, along with her mother and siblings, were taken off the streets by a kind rescuer during one of the nightly shootings, called "population control" in Iran. She is understandably a bit shy, wary of new people and things, but she is slowly coming to understand that nobody will ever hurt her again and that she'll never search for food or a safe place to sleep. Update: 12.10.17 Yippee!! Who wants to go out and play in the snow?? Yep that's me, Fiona (I now answer to Ruby). I like to be the first out the door, and my foster brothers and sisters agree that I'm fun to be around. I have lots of toys and have decided that sharing is the right thing to do, so I don't mind if the others want to play with them, as long as they'll play with me! Heck, I even let my pals hang around in my crate because I'm good like that! I'm learning to walk nicely on a leash, but those occasional loud noises and cars zipping by me make me quite nervous, so I will turn right around and head for home. Did I mention I'm house-trained and will let everyone know when I want to go out? Which is often, because I love to be outside running around and playing. I'm an all around happy, friendly girl with my own people. Strangers, not so sure of them because they scare me, so I don't like to encounter them in my own territory. I would love to work with an animal behaviorist to help me overcome my fear of new people. I would need a home that is somewhat quiet without all kinds of commotion and activity, so I can concentrate on being attentive and loving to my people. That is what I like best of all. I really will make a wonderful companion for that special someone who is willing to work with me and can give me the time and patience I need to adjust to so many new things.

BONDED PAIR GRADY TOO AND HIS BESTIE MAGGIE MOO (SHE'S THE HEFTY GIRL) These dogs will do your soul some good...... This amazing and sweet pair were surrendered to an animal shelter in TN. They are absolutely adorable and are very attached to each other so they must be adopted together. Both are very sweet and loving. They are out of their puppy years and are very mellow. Won’t you consider giving this adorable pair of seniors the forever home they deserve? They promise to give lots of love in return! Now in New England! Maggie & Grady have arrived, and are we glad they did! These sweet seniors are the happiest, friendliest dogs around. 12 yr old Grady thinks he's a puppy, chasing all the younger (and much bigger!) dogs around the backyard trying to wrestle with them. Maggie is content to go outside and watch the shenanigans, then find a cozy bed to curl up in. They know their names and come running when called (particularly at mealtime), and are very well-behaved. Fireplace you say? Yes thank you very much, they have staked claim right in front of it for cozy napping time. Looking for a couple of seniors to share your home & heart? Look no further, here they are!

Hank was a very loved dog. He lived with his previous family from the time he was four months old until he was nearly 8. His parents had a big choice to make. In order to take teaching positions in China and move their family there, they had to give up their beloved Hank. He is now currently in a foster home in New England looking for a forever family. Hank, despite being 8 years old, does have a decent amount of energy and requires daily exercise and playtime. He enjoys playing ball with his human or romping around with k9 friends. He will chase a ball through a lava stream, across a dog park, and definitely into a lake or ocean. HE LOVES TO SWIM, almost as much as he loves balls! He gets along with various types of dogs. Since Hank's foster home does not have another dog, they arrange for weekly play sessions and have a dog walker. Hank's ideal home would have another dog for him to play with and exert his energy. He would also be a good candidate for play groups and doggie daycare. All that said, he is content with two 15 minute walks per day and will gladly chill the rest of the time. Hank is not good with cats. Hank is good with kids and has been around children ages 6-12. He is protective of his home and people and will bark if someone comes to the door. As long as the visitors are welcomed in by the family, Hank is cool with them. He most certainly would protect you from a bear, skateboarder, or mail man. He is a typical hound and uses his nose to find food. Hank is very food motivated, so expect him to be in your space and beg for food if it is within his reach. Of course, training will help with this. Hank will "talk" to you and understands many words. Hank is very much a toddler and is happiest with lots of attention. If you are looking for a big, tall dog to be in your space, wanting love, affection, attention, and cuddles, Hank is the guy for you. He is very much devoted to his family. If you would like more information on Hank, please submit an application.

Hi y'all! My name is Hannable and I am looking for my forever family. I was abandoned by my last owners. Thankfully some nice people came a long and now I get to search for a family that will never abandon me again. I am a big cuddle bug. I LOVE to snuggle. I would love if you would come over by me so I can lay around and nap right next to you! I am a great pillow. My foster family says that I need to work on walking on a leash better- just when I see other dogs I get a little too excited but I swear I will work hard to do better! I like other dogs as long as we are introduced the right way. I am fine with cats just a bit curious about them at first. If I got to chose my forever family I would chose YOU! As long as you have a calm home and can give me a lot of love I will be the happiest boy around!

Hershey is a big, sweet hunk of love. She has never met a stranger and is great with all people.. Hershey is a smart girl with lots of training, and has even earned her Canine Good Citizen. She knows sit, down, heel, and a variety of other commands. She is housebroken and kennel trained. She loves to chase the ball, and can even catch it out of the air. Hershey would prefer to be the only dog in the household, however she is not reactive to other dogs while out walking on a leash or in leashed social settings like Petsmart or the vets office. She loves a good walk or romp in the yard, but she is not a hyper dog and is mellow inside. Hershey has been in rescue far too long, and really wants a home and family of her own. If you don't mind a curvy girl, Hershey may be the one for you!

Hello Everyone! Holly here! I’ve been in several different shelters over the past couple of years. As you can imagine, I was one really scared girl. At the last shelter, my shelter friends knew how special I was so they worked really hard to gain my trust and I slowly came out of my shell. I arrived at my foster home in New England in late September and shelter life is a distant memory. I’m never looking back and my friends at Paws New England will make sure I never see the inside of shelter ever again! My foster mom says that I am the best girl ever. I love to sit in her lap and lick her whole face. I am currently living with two small dogs and one medium size (who’s a pittie girl like me). We all get along fine and sleep in the big bed with foster mom. Here’s me and Oreo Wonderful (she’s on the website too) having some fun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZNrVi-o66g&feature=youtu.be My foster mom loves me very much and she said she’ll be very sad when I don’t live here anymore. She said it’s her job though to help me find the forever home that I’ve always deserved. She said it’s a place where my family will love me, take care of me and I won’t ever have to leave. That sounds really good to me.

  • Hound, Terrier

  • Prefers home without cats
Jesse is a young, approximately 1 yr, female, mixed breed of possibly hound and terrier. She has a unique look to her and beautiful markings. She had spent her entire life thus far tethered to a tree with little to no human interaction or companionship with other dogs. Jesse has been in foster for two months now. She is highly energetic, playful, and rambunctious. She still has lots of puppy energy and unbridled enthusiasm for life. Jesse would benefit from basic obedience training even though significant improvement has been made whilst in foster care. She will sit for a treat, to eat, or to be leashed up for her walks. She respects boundaries and does not jump up onto her human unless called to do so. She would do great in a home with another active dog(s) or, if by herself, with adults that could provide daily adequate exercise. To get ‘loving time', she is being taught to sit and be calm. She is very loving and eager to please her human. She has free roam of a beautiful, big fenced yard and loves to run and play. Jesse has good leash manners. She has zero food aggression during feeding times and is very good sharing her toys and bones with other dogs and people, even though she is competitive. Jesse would do well in an active home with energetic people who will spend time with her, love her, and play with her. She is currently fostering in Tennessee. If you are interested in adopting Jesse, please submit and application, and we will put you in touch with her foster dad for more information and photos. We would love to see Jesse find a forever home in New England soon!

  • Basenji, Hound
  • Spayed/Neutered
Shhhh! Don't try to tell Jesse that she's 10, she's not buying it. Our sweet senior girl loves loves loves walking around the neighborhood exploring, running around, chasing toys & balls and makes sport of shredding stuffed animals. We’re pretty sure she’d spend the night outside if you kept throwing the tennis balls. Jesse was surrendered by her original owners because they did not want her anymore. We have no idea why because she adores her people and will seek out a hand for an ear scratch or belly rub. She’s an active, energetic and happy girl who makes fast friends with any human who will play fetch with her. At the end of the day she curls up for some beauty sleep on the couch or in her own comfy chair with her bones and blankies. She’s housetrained, great on the leash and in the car, and considers a crate her own personal toybox! Jesse is one happy senior lady, now interviewing for her retirement home!

  • Pug
  • Spayed/Neutered
Meet Johnny! Arriving soon to New England! This handsome senior found himself in a noisy and cold shelter after being surrendered by his owner. He had been hit by a car and his owner could not afford treatment for him. A shelter is scary enough, but even more so when your vision is impaired. Once PAWS learned about him, we knew we had to get him out of there ASAP. He now resides with a southern foster as he continues his journey toward his forever home. Johnny is very easy to please. First and foremost, belly rubs, soft bedding and snuggles are a must. He likes good food, short and slow walks with plenty of opportunities for sniffing, and curling up in warm spots. Other dogs are fine, but he doesn't need one around to be happy. Yes, he is blind, but his foster mama is teaching him leash and vocal cues. He still can be a full-speed-ahead kind of guy, even if that means bumping his nose, but he is a pug...so his nose is already flat!! Johnny boy does not mind gentle children, but no sneaking up or tail-pullers, please! Johnny would love to find an owner that thinks puppies are great for others, but are ready for an adult relationship that doesn’t involve sharp teeth and destroyed footwear! Did we mention belly rubs and good food? Patience may not be his best virtue at mealtime as he will let you know that you may be taking a bit too long getting his dinner ready. And his new family must be prepared to hear how everyone thinks he is the most good natured boy, even at the vet and groomers!! If you think Johnny Jump-Up may be the perfect match for you, don’t wait! This handsome, personable guy is anxiously waiting to hear from you! Be very sure he will simply adore you and let you know that every day!

Fostering in New England! Meet Kibbee! Kibbee is a gorgeous Coonhound mix who we estimate to be about 6 years old. Kibbee came to us after being abandoned in Mississippi, but we're convinced that she must have had a loving home at some point, because this girl is a love bug! She wants nothing more out of life then to just sit by you, gaze into your eyes, and be pet. Kibbee is a happy dog who enjoys running around the yard and playing with her foster dog siblings. Her foster mom says she settles down very nicely once playtime is over and it's time to come inside. Although Kibbee is enjoying her warm home and doggie friends, she can't wait to find a forever family to call her own. She will need a loving family who will continue to work with her on her leash training and indoor manners. Her foster mom has been working on her potty training and that will need to be continued in her next home. In return, Kibbee will offer you unconditional loyalty and love. She just wants to be with you! She will do great in a home with other dogs and/or kids. She's gentle and does not jump. Kibbee came to PAWS with a foot injury on her rear paw. Don't be fooled because this does not slow our Kibbee down! She lifts it up from time to time but still runs and plays like the happy girl that she is.

Update: Louie is heading to our friends at John Gagnon's Pet Resort in Colchester CT for an evaluation as no one from Paws NE has met him personally yet. Stay tuned for updates but if you're interested, be sure to apply!! Met Louie today at his home and gave him a ride to Connecticut - he was fantastic when I entered the home, gentle and calm - and rode beautifully in the car! Louie is a dog we've inherited - gladly. Louie came from a small rescue in Texas to a family here in New England - sadly, after only a few days, they've decided he's not a good match for their current dog - he plays a bit too rough for her and she's now afraid of him. Typically the only option would be for Louie to travel back to Texas but we don't want that to happen - going back to the south can often not end well although the rescue that had him loves him. We want to find a new home here in New England. He's a handsome boy, a shepherd mix - approx. 50 lbs of shiny black fur. His current family said he's a good boy - very loving with the humans, tail wagging. House trained and calms down when it comes time. For now, we are thinking a home without another dog as we can't test him with dogs other than the one he's in his current home with for now. He may enjoy being an only dog so we'd like to try that first for now. However an experienced dog owner that has experience introducing dogs would be fantastic as well.

Nancy is an adorable 8 month old lab/shep mix. She was adopted from Memphis Animal Shelter but sadly her adopter wasn't committed to pet ownership and left her behind when she moved. After being placed in 2 other temporary homes, Nancy finally got her chance and landed in a Paws New England foster home. Upon arrival, Nancy's foster mom was advised that Nancy is crate trained and housebroken. She also knows the command "sit".

We don't know Nick's story, but we can only imagine what he's been through. When he arrived at our partner shelter in TN he face was covered in cuts and wounds. Our best guess was that they were either bite wounds or perhaps wounds from a barb wire fence. Despite the obvious physical pain he was in Nick was an absolute sweetheart and won over the hearts of all of the staff! Nick has received all of the medical care that he needed and is recovering nicely! It's obvious that he had a family at some point as he knows sit and shake. He also enjoys going for walks and has good leash manners. Nick loves to snuggle and is easy, easy, easy to fall in love with. He does enjoy romping with his canine friends but does best with female dogs. He tends to get a little too bossy with male dogs. Nick has quickly become a shelter favorite and we just know you'll love him too! email: mel.pawsne@gmail.com Name: Nick Offerman Breed: Pit Bull Terrier-Border Collie Mix (best guess) Sex: Male Age: 2 years old Weight: 52 pounds Spayed/Neutered: Yes, on 9/12/17 Vaccinations: Up to date 9/6/17 Microchipped: Yes BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Children: Yes, due to jumping may do best with older kids Good with Dogs: Yes, does best with female dogs.

Sweetness Personified - https://youtu.be/JusrQvx_XyQ Whatever you do, do not look this dog in the eyes - if you do, that's it - you're a goner! She will suck you right in and the next thing you know, she'll be lying on your couch! This true angel of the canine world lived her entire life in a backyard chained up - she was brought to the shelter and given up when she began having some medical issues, losing weight etc. Turns out, of course, she was heartworm positive and she was then also diagnosed with EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) - a condition where a dog lacks the proper digestive enzymes needed. There is no cure but she is maintained on a low fat, low fiber diet as these are difficult for digestion. She also has an enzyme (powder) added to her food which helps tremendously (and is not insanely expensive). More info about this condition can be found here: https://www.petmd.com/dog/conditions/digestive/c_multi_exocrine_pancreatic_insufficiency She was diagnosed as she was not gaining weight regardless of many different attempts and finally blood work revealed the condition. As she has started on the enzyme and her diet has been adjusted, she is doing fantastic. Nixie was treated for heartworm as well- this poor dog truly had a terrible existence. As usual, the fact that she was basically ignored, left to get ill and basically left starving (a symptom of EPI), she is the most loving and sweet dog I can bet you will encounter. New to my home as a foster, she has already begun to bond with with the humans and does amazing with the other dogs. She's visiting the vet next week as she clearly has terrible ears that have been treated once but are still painful - we'll get to the bottom of that for sure. If you or you know someone who is looking for a senior girl who will truly steal your heart, this is the dog.

Oreo, no sweeter dog who has been through so much and still loves us! This girl had a rough start which her foster mom will tell you about - we don't want to focus on that though - we want you to see her for the great dog she obviously always has been and continues to be. Oreo wrote a little note below - she's happy to answer questions if you have any. Don't be afraid of her breed mix - she's an amazing dog with many, many wonderful qualities. Notes from Oreo about her life now – I’m having a great time in my foster home! I feel safe and loved and my foster mom says it’s smooth sailing from here on out! Holly and I play and play and have the best time together. I am not so keen, however, about those two little dogs I live with so I probably need a bigger, nice dog like Holly who will put up with my shenanigans, to play with in my new home. We all sleep in the big bed with foster mom (sometimes I like to sleep right on top of her). Here’s me and Holly having some fun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZNrVi-o66g&feature=youtu.be My foster mom loves me very much and she said she’ll be very sad when I don’t live here anymore. She said it’s her job though to help me find the forever home that I’ve always deserved. She said it’s a place where my family will love me, take care of me and won’t ever desert me when I need them.

Here's a little video of Mr. Gorgeous! https://youtu.be/4EF8UuMm8aA This handsome boy deserves a wonderful forever home. He was let loose by his owners when they decided that they didn't want him any more. Our new foster mom scooped him up and gave him a warm place to sleep and plenty of love. Now it is his turn for a happy ending! Pendley is great with other dogs, kids, and all people. He is kennel trained, walks great on a leash, can sit and fetch. He LOVES LOVES LOVES water and toys. He is smart and loyal, but needs a few manners, as he is an energetic puppy. If you have the time and love to give Pendly apply today to be his forever family! Update: Now in New England! From Pendley's southern foster: "Pendley is an awesome dog, he does well with other dogs, he loves playing with kids, he knows how to fetch and LOVES to play. If there’s no one around to play he will throw the toy up and catch it himself. He will sleep in a kennel without any problem at all. After uncountable toys were chewed beyond recognition he moved on to playing with a Rubber Maid storage container. He played with that storage container, non stop all day, everyday. We have had quite of few dogs between me bringing home every stray I’ve found to my permanent ones, Pendley is special. He is one of the smartest dogs I’ve ever come across. I have zero doubt that whoever takes him home will will be just as impressed as I am." Can't top that! Pendley is now scheduling interviews....

Hi, my name is Saber. I was dropped off at the vets office with my litter mates to be put to sleep. My mom is a full blooded Pom and dad was a “traveling man” so my moms owner didn’t want us. I was taken home to foster with one of the vet techs and now I am ready for my forever home! I’m an active girl and I’m looking for a new home with more space where I can run and play. I am working on crate training and I’m learning to walk on a leash while wearing a harness. I know the command “kennel” and I’m working on “sit” which is very difficult for an active girl like me. I love to play and I love lots of attention. I’m very eager to learn. There are no behavioral or medical concerns. I need a high energy family who will be active with me and play a lot because I don’t like to slow down. I’ve never been around kids but I might like some older kids to play with. Please consider adding me to your home!

Everyone meet the very beautiful Scarlett. She was adopted from Jonesboro Animal Control in April of 2017 at 10 weeks old. She was returned in December because she got bigger than our orginal estimate and they had moved into an apartment. Scarlett is a very smart and loving girl. She is housetrained, crate trained and knows several commands. She sits, downs and stays (most of the time) on command. Scarlett loves other dogs and is living with 4. She does love to play and sometimes gets rough, so she will need another dog that loves to play also. She does not have to have another dog in the home, but does have a lot of energy so without another dog around she will need someone commited to helping her run off that energy. Scarlett loves to play fetch and will bring the ball back for as long as you are willing to throw it. Scarlett loves kids and has been around kids as young as 4. She does get a little nervous sometimes if they are running and screaming, but chooses to just go to another room. She does still go back several time to check and see if they are done being crazy. Scarlett will need supervision with younger kids, just because she can get excited and knock them down on accident. Scarlett will make an awesome companion to any home looking for a sweet active girl.

Scarlett adores other dogs. She is living with a pack of 4, 3 German Shepherds and a Pit Bull. She does play rought, so she will need another dog that is okay with playing. Her best friend in her foster home is a 95 pound German Shepherd and they sometimes play for hours. She does not have to have another dog, but will need an active family to run off her energy if she doesn't have another dog to play with. Cats: No. Scarlett was way too interested in chasing the office cats when tested. Kids: Yes. Scarlett has been around kids as young as 4. She does great with them. She does sometimes get nervous when they are running and screaming but chooses to go to another room and lay down. She will need supervision with younger kids just because she gets excited when playing and can knock them over on accident.

Hi everyone! My name is Sophie and I am pretty fantastic! I have had a very hard life so far. I was rescued from an abusive situation and because of that I am very fearful. Thankfully these really cool people at a vet said they would foster me! I have been there for a few weeks and I am doing really well! They say I am one of the sweetest dogs they have ever met- I think that is obvious! I am very loving but because of my life so far I need a family that is understanding of some of my quirks. I am working on potty training but will need further training once in a home. I also had a run in with another dog so it is best if I can be the only dog in the house however I am currently living with another female dog and after slow and proper introductions she is doing well! I love playing with toys and chew treated. I ride well in the car.I also love running and walking! I would love an active family to call my own. Please consider giving me a chance.

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.

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.

Sugar was found as a stray in Memphis, very emaciated. She has since been nursed back to health and is now ready for his forever family! Sugar is currently housed with Bernard. They have a blast together. Sugar loves everybody but needs a lot of attention. She would be good as an only dog not because of issues with dogs but because she is one that needs attention and wants to be included in everything! She is working hard on leash training as she currently likes to pull a bit too much. Consider being Sugar's new best friend and add this sweet girl to your forever family!

Hi, my name is Teddy! I am just over a year old. About a month ago, I had a medical emergency and Paws New England stepped in to save me. I am fostering with a kind family in Tennessee currently, and I am ready for my forever home! I love people and am very friendly!!! I love to give kisses! When my people are calm, so am I, but when they get a ball and want to play with me, I light up and get a bit wild! I have a good amount of energy and would enjoy daily exercise. I love playing. I would prefer not to be alone as loneliness makes me anxious so please watch over me well. I am crate trained and potty trained and will let you know when I need to go out. My leash manners are okay. I do enjoy children, especially older children that can play ball with me. I have not had much exposure to other dogs or cats, and I am dominant and territorial with strange dogs and will need to be taught how to socialize well with dogs. With training, I can get there. But for now, I am looking for a forever home as the only dog. If you are interested in learning more about me, please submit an application. Name: Teddy Age: 1 year 2 months Breed: Shepherd/Dingo Mix Sex: Male Vaccinations: Up to date Spayed/Neutered: Yes Microchipped: Yes Heartworm: Negative BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Dogs: No Good with Cats: Unknown Good with Kids: Has interacted with older kids and done well Adoption Donation: $450

Fostering in New England!! Meet Ursula, a stunning 8 year old shepherd mix. Yes, she might be 8 years old but you wouldn't know it watching her walking and hiking. Ursula knows basic commands, she sits and lays down and comes when called. She is crate trained and actually enjoys spending time in her crate when resting but she can be safety alone outside the crate and is house broken. She enjoys car rides and going for walks. Ursula attend daycare at John Gagnons Pet Resort in Colchester CT and is now fostering there as well- she does well in daycare but John says she honestly almost ignores the other dogs - this is a people dog for sure. We think Ursula would do best as an only dog in her home getting all the attention - she was great in her foster home before Gagnons but when a new dog was introduced, she became a bit more protective and ended up not doing well with the female in her home. She most likely would do great with a male in her new home but only dog would be ideal.

Wylie came to us from a kill shelter in Houston. He was matted and very very skinny. He has now been vetted and cleaned up and is a handsome boy! He is very loving and sweet. He is not fond of sharing his food, so should be fed in own area. He is crate trained, working on house training, social, dog and cat friendly. Although he would like to be alpha, he is learning to become a pack member. He is small enough to ride on a plane in a carry on, or be carried in a doggy purse. He would love to be able to go with you everywhere! He will jump in your lap for affection and gives the sweetest kisses. Please consider Wylie for your furbaby!
