Pharaoh knows how to turn on the charm and so he was pulled from a high kill shelter in Memphis where he was picked up as a stray. He is 55 pounds of gorgeous, young (1-2 years old), neutered, bouncing boxer mix 85% of the time and 15% sweet cuddle bug with melting brown eyes once you wear down that energy. Pharaoh has had very little training, but his foster mom is working hard on basic obedience and walking on a leash. He is also working on crate training and will let his foster mom know when he needs to go out.

He is friendly with everyone with meets! Secondary to his size and energy level he would do best with an active household that is willing to invest in his training. He gets along well with his foster siblings. He loves to play with them especially his brother that has a similar energy level. He has been easy to contain in a 4' field fence and has enjoyed running and exploring the acre and a half that is fenced!

UPDATED (9/2016):
Pharaoh is doing great in his foster home! He is a wild spirited boy with lots of energy. Perfect for an active family who could run some of that out of him. Pharaoh *loves* being outside and plays hard with one of his canine foster siblings who matches his energy well. They come in with tongues hanging long after playtime.

Pharaoh is a typical boxer puppy. He loves to play ball. He fetches well or will just toss the ball around for himself. But like all puppies, Pharaoh still needs help with his manners.

Pharaoh is housebroken and will go into his kennel with a cookie incentive. He is a good boy in his kennel. Pharaoh is working on learning sit. He is good about coming when called outside, inside he has a problem with distractions.

Pharaoh is gorgeous, young, and full of energy. He needs someone who has experience with boxer energy and he would benefit greatly from someone interested in obedience training.

For more information about this particular dog, please email:

Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue. We have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, and Arkansas) and New England (not necessarily in the state of Rhode Island). You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.

Dogs transported to New England are done so at a fee of $150.00 paid directly to the transporting company by Paws New England; no additional transport costs are responsibility of adopter. This fee is included in the adoption donation.

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your dog will help others in need.

All known information about the animal is listed above. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.

Paws New England abides by the dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.


About Our Rescue Group...

PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.

Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are located either in foster homes in New England or Tennessee/Missouri. Please email our volunteers to ask about the specific pet that you are interested in.
