Approximately five months old, Pacey has had a rough start to life but is an eternal optimist and an incredible love! Pulled from a high kill shelter in Houston and recently arrived in Rhode Island, he has some remnants of a healed skin condition. Time will tell if coat covers his scars in time, but he is both thriving and adorable. Pacey always is in a good mood and is a lover of all. He is a very devoted puppy and extremely affectionate and tactile. He has energy without being hyper, is very attentive and is an incredibly sweet boy. He would be an ideal first time pet and is an eager learner. Applications are available on our southpawsexpress.org website or by contacting Lucy at firstname.lastname@example.org. His adoption fee is $450.
Southpaws Express is the brainchild of highly rescue-experienced women, one coming from a southern shelter background and the other from New England breed rescue. We try our best to combine our experience to do right by dogs in high kill shelter regions while paying tribute to the New England protocols that put dog rescue so successfully on the map.
We are, and prefer to remain, small, pulling only a few dogs at a time and offering individualized attention to our prospective adopters. A commonality we share is that we are both "big picture" people, a core belief being that every dog we take in, and every adoption we complete, should move rescue forward. We believe in great ambassador dogs for rescue, happy adopters, and an adoption process that is both experienced and caring. We are not rigid or inflexible, and it is always our goal to build advocacy for rescue. We want you to have a good time!
Be it through adoption, volunteerism or education, we welcome you to our family!
Our Adoption Process...
Southpaws Express is a progressive rescue that prides itself on an intimate, individualized application process. We strive to make it as friendly and personalized as we can, and assist with good matching advice and direction, catered to the individual....the individual dog and adopter. Our application is available on the southpawsexpress.org site, and introductory emails always are welcomed to Lucy at email@example.com. Our standard adoption fee is $400 ($450 for puppies), which helps defray the weighty cost of transporting our foster dogs up north from their high kill southern environments and providing an excellence of vet care, but some dogs will be discounted, due to age or exceptional needs.
