Meet Braxton! This friendly and playful boy arrives to PAWS from our sister rescue in Texas. His shelter paperwork lists him as a catahoula mix and his foster mom thinks he might have some cattle dog and/or terrier mixed in. Obviously, we don't care about any of that! But for sure we know he's adorable! ​

​Braxton is playful and curious pup who is fostering with a number of other dogs. He loves playing with his toys and canine friends. ​We'd love to see him in active home with a family who can make a commitment to providing the exercise and training that all young dogs need.

​He is loving foster family life and immediately bonded with them. He enjoys cuddling with his humans and getting belly rubs. He enjoys going for walks and overall has done well on leash. Braxton is super smart and figures things out just by watching other dogs. He's very eager to please and takes correction easily. We think he'd make a great candidate for basic obedience training! ​Since arriving in his foster home he hasn't had 1 accident and does well in his crate after some initial whining.

​Braxton is ready to join his forever home! ​

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.
