Facts about Pedro Pepe

  • Breed: Miniature Pinscher Mix
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10798120-2016803
This very sweet boy is well known to Paws New England as he was adopted by one of our favorite volunteers - all has been well but Pepe has decided that their young child who is now on the move really isn't his cup of tea. After many days of angst on the family's part, everyone decided that it would be best to find Pedro a new home. They have done every single thing they can to try to make it work but he's not happy and that is all we want for this guy!

Approx 9-11 years old, Pedro is blind which is obviously a contributing factor to his rather intense dislike of toddlers (even when the toddler loves him to pieces).

He is truly a very special boy - he can navigate his way around new surroundings w/ amazing ease and does quite well with other dogs but no bouncy dogs or puppies please - they fall into the same category as toddlers in his book.

Loves his crate and will happily land there with just the word 'Crate' being said; he also loves your lap and a comfy bed.

This would be a fantastic housemate for perhaps a senior or single person/couple w/o young children. You will be doing yourself a favor adopting this boy, we think you deserve it!

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.
