Meet Tipper. How cute is she???... SO pretty. She is brown with white on her chest and feet and a white tip on her tail.


Tipper is doing really well here in RI. She is a very sweet girl (as you know), once she realized she was okay. I taught her how to use the stairs, as I have two sets the dogs use to go outside and come in as they please. Once she got the hang of it she couldn't be happier, or more proud of herself. She has a blast chasing my dog Monty around the yard, he really likes her too, and she seems to be one of his favorite foster sisters so far. They are really cute together!


Tipper is approximately 1 year old (June 2011). At first, Tipper is a little shy and can be a bit submissive. She gets along great with small dogs and big dogs and is scared of cats. She weighs about 35 pounds.Tipper loves to gives lots of kisses. She has lots of puppy energy and is really just such a sweet happy girl.

Please consider adopting Tipper and bringing this gorgeous girl into your home and making her a new member of your family.

Tipper is currently in a foster home in NH.

Adoption Coordinator:

Donation: $300.00 (inclusive of transport to New England by USDA animal transport service)

Interested in adopting this adorable puppy? Please visit our website and complete an online adoption application:

The adoption donation covers all pre-adoption vet costs (vaccinations, spaying/neutering (when age appropriate), heartworm testing/treatment when necessary and includes transportation up to New England ($125.00 per dog). Unless otherwise stated, 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 of New England is not a shelter but a rescue and thus is not funded by any city or state organization - we rely solely on the donations of our adopters to help defray the costs associated with saving these precious lives.

We are 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tipper (LOCAL), a Barrington Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Barrington, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog puppy 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 Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
