Dashing Dalton is ready to find his forever family! He's a friendly and playful 8 month old labrador-shepherd mix who has never met a stranger. He loves romping with his canine friends at the dog park, playing in the water and chasing his toys.

We would love to see him with an active family who can make a commitment to providing the exercise and training that all young dogs need. Dalton isn't all play, play, play- he also enjoys getting snuggly with his people. Dalton is smart and very trainable!

This happy boy is ready to go home!

Dalton has joined a foster home in TN and is doing amazing!! His foster family reports he's easily fit into their home and is a breeze to foster. He hasn't had a single accident since arriving and crates perfectly. Not a peep! Dalton is a great listener and knows sit & stay. He's fostering with a bossy male malamute and is fantastic with him. He's also fostering with 4 kids and 2 cats and doing great with them, too! Dalton takes treats easy and loves to snuggle with his foster family on the couch.

Adoption Donation: $450

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, Arkansas) and New England. 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.

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.
