Hi, my name is Little Guy!
Hi, my name is Little Guy! I am not so little anymore. I weigh 37 pounds and I am six months old (as of 10/31/12). I am a pit bull terrier mix. My brother Big guy and I were saved just in time from a very bad man in Kentucky. We were brought to the local shelter with our mom where our rescuers found us and couldn't let us stay there another second!
Big Guy and I are LOCAL in New England. We are neutered, microchipped, and are up to date on our vaccinations.
Lil' Guy is great with other dogs and is good with cats. He loves kids and is laid back for a puppy. Lil' Guy is doing well with his housetraining.
Please consider adding me to your family, you will not be disappointed!
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company)

Paws New England as recently joined VCA Animal Hospitals in a program providing new adopters with a certificate for an initial health exam at a VCA Hospital and treatment of certain conditions free of charges for the first 5 days. This is a great program and PAWS is thrilled to be participating in for our adopter
QUARANTINE (RI & MASSACHUSETTS)
Due to new regulations put forth, as of 6/1/2012, all dogs traveling from TN, MO, or GA [or other non-contiguous states] with a final home in Rhode Island or Massachusetts will be quarantined for a period of 5 days; dogs will arrive on Saturday, spend 5 days in quarantine, be examined by veterinarian, and released to adopters on the following Friday/Saturday. A health certificate fee of $25.00 will be required at the time of dog pickup.
The adoption donation covers all pre-adoption vet costs (general health exam, vaccinations, heartworm testing/treatment when necessary)
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.
