Tex found himself at the county pound. His owner could not be bothered to come get him and the poor guy was just very confused why he was in doggy jail. Luckily he caught the eye of a volunteer and got his ticket to freedom.

Tex is a quiet, calm, 2-year-old gorgeous male dog who is potty trained, crate trained and gets along with other dogs of all sizes. He is gentle and good with children and all adults. He’s quiet around the house, and loves being scratched. He rides well in the car and will hop right in. He loves going for walks, and walks well on a leash. Tex​ loves to be outside and loves water. We can just picture him hanging out by the pool or lake this summer!

​He ​can be a little shy at first​ and doesn't prefer loud noises​. We'd love to see him in a patient and loving home with a family who will work with him on building his confidence and give him time to transition into his new home.

​This handsome boy is ready to be your new best friend! ​

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.
