Meet our newest handsome addition, Blaze of Glory!! How gorgeous is this fella? He joins us from our sister rescue in Texas and is on the hunt for a forever family to call his own.

Blaze is a beautiful shepherd-retriever mix who LOVES kids. He seems to gravitate towards them and has a gentle disposition with them, including the 4 year old boy he’s fostering with! At just 6 months old he has already mastered sit and shake. Blaze loves to play and fetch sticks. He’s currently fostering with a 60 pound dog and doing great. He’s been to many events where he has interacted with dogs of all sizes and breeds. He loves to romp and play with his canine friends and would do great with a canine companion who matched his play style. He can be a little shy upon first meeting, but warms up quickly!

Blaze is is doing great with his house training and will need a family who can make a commitment to continuing that training. We’d love to see him in an active home with folks who can make a commitment to providing the training and exercise that all young dogs need. He’s not terribly fond of the crate, but does sleep in it at night in his foster mom’s bedroom.

This sweet boy is ready to be your new best friend!

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.
