Foster update 11/2012:
I am learning how to live in a house with family that loves me. I now love to go for walks, I am investigating and playing with dog toys.
I am good with children and adults. Some men do make me nervous at first, but once I get to know them all is good. I love car rides
Although I am crate trained, I tend to bark for a bit when I first go in. I am also pretty much house trained, and have not had an accident in over one month!! I sleep outside my crate during the night, but still need to be crated when I am all alone in the house. I get anxious by myself, but am on some medication that eases that.
I weigh about 50 lbs and I love to be near you and I love to be pet. I tend to think I am a lap dog and will try to sit on your lap. I love to be by my foster mom’s side. I love my belly rubbed and my foster mom massages my feet and it feels really good.
I have been known to chase cats, so it is probably better for me to be in a cat-free house
I am a coonhound and have an instinct to hunt. I like to try and chase squirrels and bunnies. I can also jump a four foot fence!
I am so excited to become part of your family, please remember it may take me a few weeks to adjust to you and our new schedule we will have. Please be patient with me, I am a really good dog, sooo sweet and just a love-bug!!.
All dogs transition differently. Every foster that comes to my house adjusts in a different way. Please give me time to adjust to our new family together. Please do not get mad at me if I need time to adjust.
Cleo is a 47 pound, 2 year old female, birddog/coonhound mix.
She is a nice white color with reddish brown ears and spots on her back. She is a very friendly, sweet, socialized dog and ready to make friends with anyone who takes notice to her.
Cleo gets along great with other dogs, all sizes and breeds. Cleo would love a forever home with another dog, she really enjoys the companionship. She does well on a leash and loves to go for walks.
Cleo is a strong girl and requires daily exercise, play time. She is crate trained but it’s not her favorite place. She would rather be sitting next to her family members. Cleo does not do well with cats.
Cleo is excellent with children and has been in a foster home with a 3-year-old whom she was very gentle and loving with. She loves human attention and likes to be in the house. Cleo also loves to swim and loves being in the water.
Cleo is typical hound outside and likes to keep her nose to the ground smelling all the wonderful scents.
Cleo is a healthy, happy girl, up to date on vaccines, spayed, and microchipped.
Thank you for your interest in a rescue dog...they are just the best!!!
Adoption Donation: $300.00
Interested in adopting this wonderful dog? Please visit our website and complete an online adoption application.
The adoption donation covers all pre-adoption vet costs (age appropriate vaccinations, spaying/neutering -when age appropriate- heartworm testing/treatment when necessary and includes transportation to New England at $140.00 per dog.
In addition, PAWS NEW ENGLAND has joined with VCA Veterinary Hospital to offer adopters an initial health consultation in New England at a VCA Hospital free of charge with treatment during the first seven days of adoption of common canine illnesses associated with these lucky pups, i.e. kennel cough, fecal parasites, etc. also free of charge.
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.
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.
As most dogs do not walk into a shelter with their parents birth certificates in their mouths, we cannot verify the breed mix of any dog listed. 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 or confirmation of breed mix.
