Curly's foster mom and dad are dying to tell you about him!! Please email them: or

Update from foster mom (12/12/12):

Looking for a sweet, mellow adorable lab (mix)? Meet Curly!

He is about 3 years old and weighs about 55 pounds. His foster mom reports he's the best of both worlds....For you active folks, he loves his walks and hikes (great on leash!) and once inside he loves to curl up on a couch or bed.

He is completely housebroken, ignores cats and has been looking for his forever home for a LONG time! He would do best in a quiet household; Curly is a dog that we feel would do well with children older than 12. He likes his space and we think he would be fine in a home where the kids are old enough to recognize when he needs some down/alone time.

When Curly first arrived at his foster home, he was quite shy and timid. He has made some great strides, he needs another dog in the household to show him it's okay to be a dog; another low/medium energy dog in the household would be the best type of "leader dog" to be an example for Curly.

He could use some basic obedience training, but is a very smart boy who would be a quick learner. Please give Curly a home that he can call his very own -- one that will cherish him his whole life! Please if you have any questions about Curly, do not hesitate to email his fosters at the above addresses. Curly is a very sweet dog and we want him to find the fur-ever home he so deserves and has waited for!

Curly is neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm negative and on monthly heartworm prevention.

Unless otherwise stated (LOCAL), all of our dogs are located outside of Rhode Island boarded either at one of our vet clinics or in foster care. If a dog is listed as "local," he /she is at one of our foster homes in New England.

PAWS NE is often asked, "Why would you charge "so much" for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support all rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in (discounted) vet care, and many people will want to adopt it. An older one with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation; yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt it. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others. Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you too are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption fees. Without these funds, our rescue efforts would not be possible.

ALL KNOWN INFORMATION IS LISTED HERE. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.

Please click on the "Donate" button below to make your adoption donation. If you can not adopt at this time, but would like to support the mission of PAWS New England, we would be endlessly grateful for your donation. PAWS relies entirely on donations and grants to maintain our operating budget. Without the generosity of people like you, we would not be able to save dogs like the one pictured above. Thank you for your support!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

CURLY (LOCAL), a Barrington Pointer/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pointer/Labrador Retriever for sale in Barrington, or seeking a Pointer/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Barrington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barrington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Barrington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pointer/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Pointer/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
