Foster mom tell us that this is one super sweet girl - she is FANTASTIC with the other dogs in her foster home, great with people - the only thing she doesn't like is when strangers lean over the fence to pet her - it scares her and she runs (I would too).
Kora is perfectly house trained.
Kora was found by a good samaritan out in the woods of Randolph. She was absolutely a shaking, quaking, scared little puppy when she came to us. She wouldn't eat, walk, or move. So she stayed at the front desk of the Animal Hospital she was boarding in and she slowly learned that people weren't so bad!
After a few days, she actually was kicked out from the front desk so they could get some work done. Now she's a happy go lucky puppy. We call her the jumping bean!!
She's about 55 pounds right now at about 1 year of age.. She was spayed/microchipped on 4/13/11.
She's good with other dogs of all sorts, male and female and likes their company; no small children for Kora though as she tends to play rough and sees them as playmates. Cats are not in this girl's future either. She definitely needs training in general and house manners.
She will thrive in an energetic home that is interested in doing training and bonding with her for the longterm.
Adoption Donation: $250

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 PRIVATE FOSTER HOMES OR TRAINING FACILITIES. 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 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 dog 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 him/her. 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.

Rescue Group Info...
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.
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.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company)
