Fostering in New England!!PAWS New England has a special place in their hearts for senior dogs and Abagail is no exception!! This sweet girl lost her home in 2015 due to her owner moving and not being able to take her and her canine brother, Scruffy. Scruffy has since been adopted and Abagail patiently waits for her forever family to find her.Abby is one of those lucky ladies that doesn't look or act her age!! While she is a senior and very calm & laid-back, she does know how to have a good time. She greets adults and children with excitement and after a while she retires to a quiet place to rest. Abby loves to go for her daily walks and is very good on leash. She also enjoying trotting around her foster Mom's yard and stretching out in the sun.Abby would love a quieter home where she can spend her days relaxing and hanging out with her people. After proper introductions she does get a long with older, more mellow dogs. However, we think she'd love to be an only dog. And believe us, she has more than enough love to give!This sweet senior deserves nothing less than a fantastic home and we’re determined to find that for her!!Check out my awesome video! https://youtu.be/bYbyD04ga9MName: Abagail Raven (aka Abby) Breed: Shepherd-Labrador Mix (best guess) Sex: Female Age: 12 years old as of 02/13/2017 Weight: 40 pounds as of 02/13/2017 Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to Date Heartworm: Negative and On Preventative Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Dogs: Yes, with mellow dogs Good with Cats: No Good with Kids: Yes, older than 10Adoption Donation: $150Visit our website below for an adoption application and answers to your most “Frequently Asked Questions: https://pawsnewengland.com/adoption-form/ https://pawsnewengland.com/adoption-process/ https://pawsnewengland.com/our-dogs-listFor more information about this particular dog, please email: adoptions@pawsnewengland.comPlease note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue.

Aiyana was found, badly wounded, on the side of a country road and rescued one of our sister rescues. She had obviously been used as a bait dog and tossed out when she was too injured and weak to go on. After an overnight stay at the vet, for wound care, she was taken back to the sanctuary where she hid in her dog house for several days. Creeping out, once no one was around, to eat and check out her new world.With gentle encouragement the folks at the rescue, Aiyana became braver and more curious. Two weeks after her rescue she was happily greeting everyone and was quite smitten with the handsome fella in the neighboring kennel… our very own Petey the Pitty!This little flower will need patience and gentle encouragement to continue blossoming. She’s waiting and wishing for a family of her very own!Check out her video! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10208751576096398&id=1522178203Name: Aiyana– means “Forever Blossoming” Breed: Black Mouth Cur Mix Sex: Female Age: 2 years Weight: approx 40-45 lbs Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Negative Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Dogs: Yes- will play with a few of the dogs in her foster home but she is very shy & needs careful introductions Good with Cats: Unknown Good with Kids: UnknownAdoption Donation: 450.00IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog.

  • Spayed/Neutered
April is a beautiful brindle Plott Hound mix who was a former PAWS dog. She is approximately 7 years old. She fostered with me back in 2010. She was very laid back then and hasn't changed a bit! She is so sweet, lovable and the most "chill" girl ever.This little lady loves nothing more than sleeping all day and getting belly rubs all night. On a scale of 1 to 10 her energy level is about a 2. She is house trained and gets along well with my large male dogs. She loves kids and has been around all ages from infants to teenagers. She is not a big fan of being outside. She will go out, do her business but then wants to come right back in. She is good on a leash. She is extremely food motivated. She weighs 55 pounds and could use to lose maybe 5 pounds to get her sleek "houndish" figure back - however, April does not love exercise and loves being a full figured girl.She would do great in a home where she can lounge her days away. She would be great as an only dog or with another dog with low energy. Please consider adding this sweet girl to your home!Name: April Sex: Female Breed: Plott Hound Mix Age: 7 years old Weight: 55 pounds Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Negative 5/18/2017 Microchipped: Will be before adoption BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Dogs: yes- April is very laid back - doesn't interact much with my dogs, she really just likes to sleep and chill out Cats: Unknown Kids: Yes, she has been exposed to kids from infants to teenagersAdoption Donation: $ 450.00 IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog.

Resist this dog, dare you! https://youtu.be/ecIWEmspGwIBoomer was surrendered to the shelter in Memphis at 4 years old for unknown reasons. He bounced around a few fosters before landing with his current foster. We are not really sure what kind of situation he was raised in. He comes to Paws New England from a rescue that has subsequently been investigated for not caring for their animals properly - luckily this boy was abandoned with his current foster family who as you can tell, adore him.I know we say it a lot but this guy really does love to cuddle and sleeps on a pillow. He loves to run and play, chase and fetch.He does not like powered tools (hates vacuum, drill, saw, etc.)He has the biggest smile when he is happy. He will army crawl instead of getting up to walk if he is being called nearby. He is the biggest goofball we have fostered by a wide margin.He knows sit and stay and working on shake right now. He does need some work with leash training but with the right tools and patience, this can be mastered. He is excited at first but then gets into the flow!He sometimes plays bully rough and needs someone to correct this - he totally responds when he's told to relax!!Boomer would do very well as a single dog, but is also great with others as a pack. In his foster home he understands the pack order and is submissive to the dogs over him.He has not been around children much, only for a brief visit with family. He would be good with children 5 or 6 and older who have been around dogs.Name: Boomer Sex: Male Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Age: 4 years approx.

She is certainly curious about the cat, but did not offer to chase her. She quickly picked up how to walk with a leash but will need some more leash training to perfect it. Brownie will definitely be a fun gal to have around and a great best friend!Name: Brownie Breed: Corgi mix Sex: Female Age: 2-3 years Weight: 20 pounds Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Tested negative on 7/3/17 Microchipped: will be prior to transport BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: Yes Good with Kids: Yes, did very well with foster's visiting grandchildrenAdoption Donation: 450.00 IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog.

Meet Carrington! He is a handsome 1 year old male who is a real charmer. Even though he's only a pup he is clearly going to be a very sporty yet distinguished chap.Carrington is extremely sweet and loves lots of affection. It appears he hasn't had much education but he is open to leash training among other disciplines. Carrington is quiet, yet energetic. Lounging in his sophistication and then upon engagement, springs into action offering his paw in a humble jesture of "let's play tag". He appears to be trying to communicate as he looks up at you from his chiseled jaw line, with those beautiful light brown/hazel eyes, revealing how grateful he is for your kindness. He is eager and patient... a beautiful combination of qualites in a companion. Carrington loves laying his head on your chest and his tail wagging is like the conducting of a symphony of joy. He is a delight!Please consider adding him to your forever home, he is ready and willing!Name: Carrington Breed: Hound/Pit mix Sex: Male Age: Approx 1 yr Weight: Will update Neutered: Will be before adoption Vaccines: UTD as of 6/13/17 Microchipped: Will be before adoptionBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Dogs: Yes Cats: Unknown Kids: UnknownAdoption Donation: 250.00IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog.

Champ when we first found him: https://youtu.be/NEbDRai7Ix8We are all rooting for Champion to find his forever home! He was one of those dogs left behind - his owner died and the family that was supposed to care for him neglected their duties, and he suffered greatly. He was left outside on a chain until one of our rescuers found him and freed him. At the time of his rescue, he was 20 pounds underweight and heartworm positive. He has since undergone a successful heartworm treatment and has gained weight. Apart from some lung tissue damage, Champ is healthy and ready for adoption. Champ is a highly social dog with humans. He has some mild insecurities with being touched, but would do great with adults who are gentle and understanding of his needs. He would not do well in a home with small children. He does not know how to play, though with patience and time, he could learn to play. Like some dogs who go without food for long periods of time, he mildly guards his food now, but did not show food aggression in his behavioral evaluation (which will be provided to a potential adopter). This should improve with time, as he learns that a meal is forthcoming twice a day. Champ would do well in a home as the only dog. He would not be a candidate for dog parks or daycares. Walks at a distance from other dogs would be fine with additional training to know how to handle him so he does not react to the sight of other dogs. This young boy has had a terrible life thus far - he needs someone or a family to stick it out with him as he will most certainly come to realize that life is good! We would love to see Champion receive more training to reinforce positive skills, and we are willing to refund the $250 adoption donation if his adopter proceeds with training. Are you willing to give Champion the home he deserves?Name: Champion Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Sex: Male Age: 2 years 0 months Weight: 45.0 Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date Microchipped: YesHousetraining - this is being worked on however he lived outside on a chain for most of his life so this will continue to need reinforcement.BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Children: No children under 12 Good with Dogs: Prefers to be the only dog Good with Cats: UnknownAdoption Donation: 250.00 (refundable if adopter hires a trainer to help Champion further)Visit our website below for an adoption application and answers to your most “Frequently Asked Questions:https://pawsnewengland.com/adoption-form/https://pawsnewengland.com/adoption-process/https://pawsnewengland.com/our-dogs-listFor more information about this particular dog, please email: adoptions@pawsnewengland.comPlease note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue.

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!His Rescue Story: https://vimeo.com/140990447Name: Channing Sex: Male Breed: Coonhound/Tree Walker mix Age: Approximately 4 years 9 months old as of 08/2016 Weight: approximately 83 lbs as of 12/2015 Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to Date Heartworm: Negative and On Preventative Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Dogs: Yes and would like to live with another medium-large dog Good with Cats: Yes, fostering with 2 cats Good with Kids: UnknownDonation: $450.00Visit our website below for an adoption application and answers to your most “Frequently Asked Questions: https://pawsnewengland.com/adoption-form/ https://pawsnewengland.com/adoption-process/ https://pawsnewengland.com/our-dogs-listFor more information about this particular dog, please email: adoptions@pawsnewengland.comPlease note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue.

Sweet Dixie Roo was found on a farm in Arkansas after a devastating tornado had come through! Who knows how long she had been on her own or how far she had traveled! She enjoyed the freedom of the farm that she was found on but unfortunately she has a thing for cows- chasing them to be exact- and was once again on the search for her forever home! Thankfully a PAWS volunteer heard about Dixie and she is now a PAWS girl!This sweet girl is shy at first but quickly warms up to her people. She enjoys sleeping in bed with her humans but understands that she sometimes needs to sleep in her own bed. She is house trained and will let you know when she needs to go out. She loves being an inside dog and loves hanging out the house. She is working on leash training and training in her foster home.Dixie would love an active family with a fenced yard and a big bed!

  • Prefers home without cats
Dixie, and another pup, were abandoned at a house in Midtown Memphis by a college student who moved away. The people who rescued her called a friend of K9 Savior who then brought her to us and contacted PAWS. With some great veterinary care and TLC Dixie is looking and feeling great.She is a super sweetie pie who is very affectionate and loves being with people.She currently has 2 doggy friends in her foster home and enjoys chasing, running, and wrestlng with them.Dixie keeps her toys and bedding neat and prefers to sleep in a crate. She’s trained on a doggy door and only rarely has potty accidents. Dixie’s favorite past time is to sit on her bed and watch what’s going on around her. She is well behaved and calm when free to walk around indoors but gets very excited at meal time.Dixie was nervous and defensive around new dogs the first months in her foster home but she is growing more confident and leaving the past behind. She is currently enrolled in a 5 week training program where she will learn how to walk on a leash without pulling, coming to a heal position, not jumping up, sit, down, sit and stay for 3 minutes, coming when called, off (which is the command used when dogs jump on people), socialization with dogs and people, sitting and waiting before going through a threshold, introduction to loud noises, and ignoring loud noises. Her trainers report that she's doing great and playing with a large group of dogs. She will graduate August 15th and be ready for travel. Dixie has so much love to give and can’t wait to find a home to call her owCheck out her video! m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10207641557946638&id=1522178203Name: Dixie Rose Sex: Female Breed: Pit bull, Rottweiler Mix Age: Approx 2-3 years old Weight: Approx 46 lbs Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Positive on 7/16/2016, treated 11/11 and 11/12 Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Dogs: Due to a past attack by vicious dogs, Dixie was nervous and unpredictable around new high energy or dominant dogs for several months.

  • Yellow Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
Dolly Madison is a pretty, sweet, young yellow lab mix female, at about 1.5 years of age. Poor Dolly has been traumatized in her short life and is fearful of people.Dolly does not display any aggressive traits whatsoever but she will not stand up in front of a human; if she is approached, she will try to hide and disappear into a hole or crate. She will allow you to touch and rub her all over her body once she is contained. She will even let you trim her nails. She does not have any aggressive tendency and never has she tried to bite. She is just frightened. She will not walk on a leash at all, she has to be carried. She does much better in the presence of another dog. When left alone with another dog, she plays with the dog with gentle wrestle, interacts, throws toys around and shows more confidence. If people approach, she will withdraw and hide. She appears to be housetrained and always goes to potty in the same spot. She is doing much better in her foster home but will need continued love and patience for her true personality to show.Dolly will need a forever family understanding of her fear and willing to work with her so she can blossom into a great dog! She will be a flight risk and will need a family understanding of what this entails. She has a gentle sweet spirit about her and has much love to give that special family who will accept her into their family!

Hey! Dylan here! As you can see from my pictures I am quite handsome.I am 3 years old and was adopted to my mom and dad as a Lab/Boxer mix. Really? I am clearly an American Staffordshire Terrier mix or a Pit Bull, as we are sometimes called. Our neighbors took one look at me and decided I was bad news. They gave my mom and dad such a hard time that they decided, for my own safety, I should go and live with a new family. I felt so sad I told them I would stop being a Pit Bull if they would let me stay. Mom and dad said that I was a very nice boy, that it wasn’t my fault and that I should be proud of who I am. So thank goodness for PAWS New England!My foster mom is taking good care of me until my new family finds me. I love toys, snuggling and nice long walks. Foster mom says I’m a little too mouthy, which she said most teenagers are, so I’m trying to remember not to use my teeth when I play with her.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 my furever home. 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.Love, DylanName: Dylan Sex: Male Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier mix Age: 3 yrs Weight: 65 pounds Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Yes Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Dogs: Yes.

Found A Peanut ended up at one of our shelter partners after being found as a stray. He was neglected and in desperate need of TLC. Peanut was found to have a tumor on his back that needed removed along with multiple rotted teeth. He also was found to have an old leg injury. After a thorough vetting and surgery he is now on the mend and doing well! He will need soft food and arthritis meds for the rest of his life but he gets around great and is still very spunky!Peanut is a little guy, and as such, he’s a little skittish of noises and a little cautious of big things, especially new people. But a new person willing to get down to his level, hold out a hand, and wait for him to come will be richly rewarded. And also clean, as Peanut is a licker! He loves ear rubs and will curl up quietly next to you while you watch TV or read a book. He likes to run when he first goes outside, but that doesn’t last long. He enjoys a short walk around the block to give his sniffer a workout. He is currently living with 3 big dogs – 2 males and 1 female, also seniors, and also relatively low energy. He likes them just fine, but doesn’t seek them out except to lick them! Given a choice, he’s going to hang with his person, but he’s perfectly content hanging with the dogs.Peanut’s ideal forever family loves senior dogs and is a low key environment that can’t wait to give a homeless senior the best of his life!Name: Found A Peanut Breed: Chihuahua/rat terrier mix Sex: Male Age: Approximately 12 years old Weight: 18 pounds Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Negative Microchipped: Will be before adoptionBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Children: Unknown.

  • Labrador Retriever, Beagle
  • Spayed/Neutered
Gambit is a sweet and well mannered boy who doesn't understand how he ended up at the shelter. After being a loved family pet for so long shelter life is very confusing to him. Unfortunately, his family came on hard times and had to surrender Gambit and his brother. In his previous home he had a little girl that he loved very much and it was heartbreaking to see her say goodbye. Gambit's brother has since been adopted, and now he patiently waits for a family of his own.Gambit has quickly become a shelter favorite. And all of the workers say he's as close to perfect as you can get. He is good with other dogs and enjoys his play time at the dog park. We'd love to see him in a home where he will be loved, cherished, and never given up again.Questions: mel.pawsne@gmail.comName: Gambit LeBeau Sex: Male Breed: Lab-Beagle mix Age: Approx 5 years old Weight: 58 pounds Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date as of 06/2017 Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Dogs: Yes!

  • Collie, Pointer
  • Spayed/Neutered
Liza is a beautiful three year old collie/pointer mix. She spent 3 long months at an animal shelter in Texas, and it was a very overwhelming environment for a sweet, quiet girl like Liza. She was a volunteer favorite, so when she was selected by the Heartworm Foundation to have the fast kill procedure to get rid of her heartworms we sprang into action to find her a foster family.Liza is extremely sweet and loving and is adored by her foster family. She loves being around other dogs, loves to crawl to you and get belly rubs & she has come a long way, gaining confidence around her foster family.This girl is a bit nervous in new situations so a patient, calm adopter/household would be best for Liza. She has learned to come to us when called, and is doing great learning basic commands. She was likely not treated well in the past, but since she is was a stray we do not know much about her life prior to coming into the shelter. We do know that she gets along well with other dogs and cats. (LOVES dogs and is afraid of cats!) and she is crate trained and appears to be house trained. She likes to run and play outside, but she really loves the comforts of being an inside dog. She loves to snuggle with you on the bed or on a couch. Liza would be a great companion dog given a little time to bond and gain the trust of her forever family. We love Liza, and we are so excited and proud of her for gaining confidence with us and showing us the amazingly loving and happy dog she truly is!BASIC INFO:Name: Liza Sex: Female Breed: Collie/Pointer Mix Age: Approximately 3 years Weight: 50 pounds Spayed/Neutered: spayed Vaccinations: Up to date as of June 2017 Heartworm: Positive, treated on June 1 Microchipped: yesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS:Dogs: Yes- she is great with all dogs. Male and female, big and small. She loves to play but then is happy just relaxing on the couch with them. She is submissive when she plays, but she truly loves being around other dogs. Other dogs seem to bring out more of the spunkiness in her!Cats:Yes- has done well in a home with cats, is actually a bit afraid of themKids: Due to her shy nature she will do best in a home with older children.

Now Fostering in New England!!Lucy Lucky is just that- lucky. She was adopted from our partner shelter a few years ago into what they thought was a loving home. Recently, she was found running loose on the streets in very poor condition. She was absolutely emaciated and her skin was in rough shape from a skin infection related to fleas. Since arriving back to the shelter she has gained weight and her skin has been treated. She definitely feels better and is starting to look better!Lucy is a very sweet and loving girl. She enjoys the company of other dogs. She just joined a foster home in TN and we're hoping to share lots of updates with you. But if you can't wait, fill out our adoption application!**Update 5/25 Lucy is enjoying foster family life in TN. Her foster mom says she's settling into her routine and doing great with the resident dog and kids. They love to give her love & affection and she seems to really enjoy it! Lucy knows sit and her favorite thing to do is roll over for belly rubs. She enjoys playing with the resident dog, a 100 pound malamute. As we learn more we will update her bio!**7.8.17**: Lucy landed in New England today and now has 7 other furry friends to play with, or just to hang on the couch with. Lucy is a relaxed, quiet girl who likes to follow the others around to see what they're up to. Until she finds a willing wrestle buddy then she'll play all day long. She just started doggie daycare and is doing great. Lucy loves riding in the car and sits happily watching out the window.

We think that's no way for a dignified dog like Bear to live out his remaining years, so we're happy to help him find a loving home!Bear is a dapper 13 year old labrador mix. We think he's just handsome with his salt and pepper muzzle! He enjoys living a slower paced life which includes lots of naps and strolling along taking it all in. His foster mom reports that he's house broken and has good leash manners. He's currently fostering with 2 cats and doing very well.

  • Spayed/Neutered
FOSTERING IN WESTERN NEW YORKLike her namesake, Norma Jean has not has an easy life so far. This sweet girl was picked up as a stray by animal control after being found tied to the fence of an abandoned house in Buffalo. It is clear that she had several litters of puppies during her lifetime. She was underweight, had a "hot spot" on her back from an untreated flea allergy, and a torn cruciate ligament in her knee. To top it off, immediately after being pulled from the shelter, poor Norma Jean came down with a very serious case of pneumonia and had to be hospitalized for several days.But Norma Jean has battled back from pneumonia, put on some much need weight, and is ready to go about becoming the Marilyn that we know she is meant to be! We don't know very much about her background, but this sweet lady is a dream! She knows sit and down, is housebroken, loves humans (including men!), is good with other dogs, and was very gentle with her 2 year old foster niece. Norma loves laying out in the sun or rolling around to scratch her back. But more than anything, she loves giving kissing and hanging out with her people. Norma is feeling much better and her foster family is loving watching her show off her true personality.Norma can currently be found checking out the summer events in Buffalo. But her favorite spot in the whole city is a sunny patch on her foster family's deck. Norma LOVES laying outside and soaking in the sun. Second favorite only to hanging out inside with her foster family. The girl is a dream!Norma is currently receiving medicated baths for her skin (which she seems to actually enjoy!). Next up, she will have surgery to repair her torn cruciate ligament (similar to human ACL surgery). She will have to be on limited activity after her surgery, but her foster mom would be happy to answer any questions that you might have about that. Norma is not a high energy dog by any means, so she seems like she will get through recovery like a champ.Norma is hoping that her forever family can see the star that shines brightly inside of her. Will you help Norma become a Marilyn??https://youtu.be/JBzUPNMVFsE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5x3M9NN2KdIName: Norma Jean Sex: Female Breed: Terrier / American Staffordshire mix Age: approx. 2 years old as of April 2017 Weight: 57 pounds Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Negative Microchipped: Yes Medical: Torn cruciate ligament.

This handsome boy has no teeth -- but when he looks at you with his tongue hanging out to the side it is simply adorable!He seems to be most happy either curled up in his bed or being held by a person, any person will do as long as they are willing to hold him for extended periods. Paddy is looking for someone to love him for as long as he has left and he still has plenty of snuggles to go around. He would do fine living with another low key dog as he really isn't into playing anymore and no longer hears that well or he would be happy as an only dog.He simply requests that any resident canines or kids be willing to share lap space with him. Other than needing to eat canned food, his lack of teeth and eye have no lasting effects.Name: York Peppermint Pattie --- "Paddy" for short Sex: Male Breed: Yorkie Age: 12 years as of June 2017 Weight: 7.7 pounds as of June 2017 Spayed/Neutered: yes Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Negative Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Dogs: yes - is fine with all dogs but would prefer not to play with them Cats: unknown but based on personality should be ok Kids: yes based on personalityAdoption Donation: $250IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog.

Penny in action with a friend .... https://youtu.be/6-31bAdYeccUpdated Note from Foster Mom: My new foster Penny - SPECIAL girl... needs a home with at least one other confident dog, a yard to run in and more importantly time to adjust with no pressure. Took us two days to get her into the house and come near us at the Lodge but as you can see she is warming right up now.Labeled as feral nothing could be further from the truth - she loves and craves human attention. She's shy but I don't actually see her as fearful.This dog needs the right situation. - someone home A LOT, room to run while contained for now, someone with patience - although I have not witnessed it she has been noted to have an aversion to crates so hence the reason someone home until she can be tested alone loose in a house.Rescued from the Memphis Animal Shelter, this little peach is still a bit shy but is coming around with the help of her canine foster friends whom she loves - she's checking the humans out and seems to think they will be okay.For now she's healthy and doing well and we hope to find a new home for her in New England ASAP.Name: Penny Wise Breed: Whippet Mix Sex: Female Age: 1 years Weight: 26.0 Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Negative Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Children: Unknown at present but believed will be fine Good with Dogs: YES Good with Cats: UnknownAdoption Donation: 450.00IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog.

  • Prefers home without cats
Petey had a home if you consider being tied out in the back yard as a puppy, not even a year old, having a home. With no regular attention, training, or socialization Petey was growing big and strong with no manners. At least his owner had the good sense to call K9 Savior Foundation, and ask for us to take this sweet boy, when she was afraid his high energy might knock the kids down and hurt them.At the rescue, Petey spent his first year learning from the best dog buddies he could find Jack Black & Lady Belle, both wonderful PAWS Alumni. This gorgeous guy is the sweetest, most loving pup who ever lived! He’s a clown who LOVES to swim in the pond and play with female dogs at the rescue. He’s a fabulous foster uncle for the new puppies that come into the rescue, running around showing them the ropes, and laying patiently while they crawl all over him. Petey has a lifetime of love and slobbery kisses just waiting to share with some lucky someone!6/24 Update: Petey is housebroken using a doggy door. He is calm and well behaved indoors but loves to run full speed when outside. We recommend Petey be crated when not supervised as he looks for something to chew when he’s bored. Petey is a very social dog and is happiest when he has a another dog to run and play with or when he is walking around with his foster mom.Check out his video! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10208751708099698&id=1522178203Name: Petey the Pit bull Breed: Pitbull Terrier Sex: Male Age: 2 years old Weight: approx 65 lbs Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date as of 3/26/2016 Heartworm: Negative as of 3/26/2016 Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Dogs: Enjoys playing with other dogs. Petey may be defensive when strange male dogs get too close to his face; however, with slow, proper introduction he has been fine with non-dominant male dogs. Petey has had 2 male dog playmates while in his foster home and done well. Good with Cats: No. Absolutely not. Good with Kids: Unknown.

They are typical puppies who love to play and love belly rubs.

Rollo was brought in as a stray with bite wounds to hind legs and bottom area. He also had a tail injury that required us to amputate part of his tail. He has spent the last 4 months recovering and he is now ready to find his forever home!Rollo is a little shy and can be slow to warm up to new people, but once he gets to know you he is a big snuggle bug. He is a smart guy and has mastered several skills already -- sit, stay, paw, catching treats in the air, and walking on leash. Rollo is housetrained in the kennel, but that can change with a change in environment. In his downtime, Rollo likes to hang out on his doggie couch and would love to snuggle in bed with his new humans. Rollo enjoys spending time outside in the snow or sunshine --- he does not do rain --- and enjoys walks in the woods and short hikes.Rollo's ideal home would be a moderately active household --- someone who would take him for walks in the woods, short hikes or throw a ball and then relax on the couch in front of the TV.Name: Rollo Sex: Male Breed: Pitbull mix Age: 6 years old as of April 2017 Weight: 63 pounds of April 2017 Spayed/Neutered: yes Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Negative Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Dogs: Needs slow introductions, prefers larger female dogs Cats: Unknown Kids: Unknown.

She met 6 foster siblings a few weeks ago, and was instantly BFFs with all of them. She met another new one today and is delighted to find another wrestle buddy! She loves going to doggie daycare and we're told she does fabulous there. She rides great in the car, loves to go for walks, but is most happy when she's with her people and doggie friends just running around and having fun with her toys.Rosie would love a home where she could play with another doggie friend, or maybe go to doggie daycare to get her playtime in. She's housetrained, prefers a doggie bed to the crate so is allowed to roam free.*Our vet says she looks great; she was treated for allergies and ear infections which seem to be fine now; she will be treated for heartwormsWant more info? email pawsjeanne@gmail.comName: RosaLee Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Sex: Female Age: 3 years (approx.)

Fostering in New England!!Roscoe and his sister, Diva (adopted), were living in a home with 12 dogs and cats. Unfortunately, their home caught fire and they were some of the lucky animals to make it out. When they escaped they lived in the woods for weeks until they could be caught. After arriving to the shelter they were absolutely terrified. They never showed an ounce of aggression, but would just freeze and tremble. A number of weeks have passed and both pups are starting to blossom!Roscoe is a handsome 1.5 year old hound mix. He's the perfect size at 45 pounds! Now, instead of freezing when people approach he happily wags his tail. He's never walked on leash in his life and he's starting to learn how to do that. He loves running in the yard with his sister, Diva. Because of his shyness a fenced yard is required for Roscoe's new home.He's come such a long way in such a short period of time. We'd love to see him in a loving & patient home where he can continue to blossom. He absolutely needs another friendly and confident dog in the home to show him the way. His sister, Diva, has recently been adopted and we hope it will be his turn next!!We will continue to update his bio as we learn more!Questions: mel.pawsne@gmail.comName: Roscoe Mitchell Sex: Male Breed: Shepherd-Hound mix Age: Approx 1.5 years old Weight: 45 pounds Spayed/Neutered: Yes, on 2/21/17 Vaccinations: Up to date 2/21/17 Heartworm: Negative on 2/21/17 Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Dogs: Yes, loves other dogs.

Satin was found with her 7 puppies living under a home in Memphis - she was taking care of them the best she could the poor girl - she was so lucky that a local rescuer found her and took the time to get her and her babies to safety.Satin is the proud mama of 7 puppies who have since found their home but we were holding onto her until she could recover from taking care of all of them, get spayed and get a normal routine going for herself.This girl will need some work with someone who is willing to put in the time. She is somewhat fearful and will need guidance, patience and some formal behavioral work with a behaviorst/trainer - Paws NE will be more than happy to contribute to tis endeavor including putting her adoption donation of $250 towards training.She loves her foster mom and dad and sibling - she is used to them and it's more than likely the first real home she has had with love being handed out to her.We have a forma behavior assessment on hand to discuss with you if you think this girl is worth the work... she is.Name: Satin Breed: Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier Sex: Female Age: 1 year 6 months Weight: 55.0 Spayed/Neutered: No Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Negative at recent testing Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Children: Unknown Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: UnknownAdoption Donation: 250.00 IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog.

  • Boston Terrier, Rat Terrier

  • Spayed/Neutered
I’m Tessa, and my foster mom says I’m a great dog. I lived with three other dogs here in New England, but my owner died, so we all ended up in rescue. PAWS took me and my brother Tim, while another group took the other two. Since we are not a bonded pair, we are being fostered separately, but neither one of us would complain if someone wanted to adopt both of us!I’m a girl that nurtures my inner puppy! I still have a lot of bounce, and really enjoy my toys (but I don’t like to share them). I will greet you enthusiastically when you’ve been away from the house, but am mostly calm in my everyday life. I enjoy going for walks (although I still want to pull) and exploring a fenced yard. I am house trained, but as with most seniors, I can’t “hold it” as long as I could in my younger days. I will, however, use a pee pad if you can’t let me outside. I am very food motivated, so I’m easy to train if there’s something you want me to learn. I’m now fostering with several dogs ranging in size from 10 to 50 pounds (both male and female) and get along well with all of them, although I really don’t like the youngster bugging me!My ideal home will have lots of love for me and get lots of love from me. I would prefer a home without very young children because I’m not used to that much excitement. I could be an only dog, but also could enjoy a canine friend. I could go for walks, or just hang out in a fenced yard. I guess you could say I’m not terribly fussy, as long as the love is there.Name: Tessa Sex: Female Breed: Boston Terrier mix Age: 11 as of 1-10-2017 Weight: 22 pounds Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date as of 8-9-16 Heartworm: Negative as of 6-19-17 Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Dogs: Yes.

Hi! My name is Walter- Walter Reed- and I am looking for my forever home!I was found in a ditch along with my siblings- for some reason they all got spotted but I am still needing my forever home! I think it is my turn.My forst mom says I am pretty awesome! I just want to hang out right next to her ALL the time! I am a hound mix though so I love to smell- I smell everything- some would say I am the best smeller. I also like to play fetch, okay, okay I don't really do great at the bringing it back part but if you throw it I can keep it! I also love bones and snuggling with my foster family at night. I am working super hard on being potty trained.One of my best attributes is my double ear flap which is most pronounced when I run in the wind- its model style! I do NOT like loud noises. I don't know who invented fireworks but they are the worst.I get along with other dogs and one of my favorites is actually a cat! I am going to make the perfect companion. It takes me a bit to war up but once I warm up I will be your best fired!Please adopt me!!Love,WalterName: Walter Reed Breed: Hound mix Sex: Male Age: 6 months old as of 7/12/17 Weight: 35 lbs as of 7/12/17 Spayed/Neutered: Yes Vaccinations: Up to date Heartworm: Negtive as of 6/17 Microchipped: Yes BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: Yes Good with Kids: YesDonation: $250.00 IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog.

William wandered up to a home in rural Mississippi in July 2017. He was starved and had a skin condition with bald spots over much of his body. The homeowner contacted Paws New England for help and Mr. Bill from K9 Savior drove down, picked William up, and got him settled at the Sanctuary with a soft bed and a good meal. After a short time William was moved to a foster home where he continues to thrive!We don’t know a lot about William yet but we have noticed that he’s a happy wiggle butt, enjoys love and attention from people, loves playing with other dogs, and is a good boy during bath time. He has webbed feet, a bobbed tail, long thin legs, appears to be young, and wrinkles his face up in the most adorable way when he's excited or waiting for a treat. We believe William to be a lab mix with possibly some boxer, hound or terrier.William’s foster mom will be posting updates as his personality continues to come out but for now she simply says he's delightful.Name: William Sex: Male Breed: Lab mix Age: Approx. 2 years old Weight: 50 pounds Neutered: Will be neutered before adoption Vaccines: Up to date Heartworm: Negative Microchipped: YesBASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS: Good with dogs: Yes. He is fostering with other dogs and does well. Good with cats: Unknown but can be cat tested.
