Fostering in New England!

Bronx is young dog who is as sweet as he is handsome! He’s looking for an active family, and this energetic pooch loves to run, play and leap into the air. He's an incredibly friendly guy who enjoys playing with his canine friends, and it was love at first sight for Bronx and his canine foster sister.

This boy will chase and chase balls until you're too tired to throw them! Although he gets excited and jumpy at playtime, he quickly adjusts his play style to whatever dog he is with and does well with high energy dogs as well as older, calmer dogs. He will do best in an active home where he will continue to receive the enrichment and exercise that a pup his age needs.

Bronx knows some basic commands such as sit, come, lay down, off, leave-it and responding to his name. This smart boy is continuing to pick up new things every day and is trying to break the habit of jumping up to greet people. However, he isn’t fond of eating with others and should dine alone, please! But we always suggest that dogs be fed separately, and Bronx is very comfortable eating in his crate.

He is both crate and house trained, and his foster mom says that he has been good as gold in his room while not being crated during the day. Since Bronx is trained to walk with a head collar, walking him is a breeze. He’s also a great companion on car rides, running errands and dining at outside cafes

Are you ready to add endless playtime, doggy kisses, hugs and super happy tail wags to your home? If so, check out Bronx and apply to adopt him today!

***10/15/16 Update: Bronx is now comfortable with eating outside his crate but still needs to his own space with his food. He extends the same courtesy to his foster mom and doesn’t beg at the dinner table. He is also very polite about receiving treats and takes them very gently.

Please contact for any questions about this wonderful guy!

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.
