Our sleek hound dog boy!!
Fred is a male hound mix who is about 10 months old, neutered, and about 40 pounds. His first owner "could not take care of him" anymore and decided to just let him go free on a busy rural road. He was found with another dog, Wilma (who we will be listing soon also).
Fred is so handsome in person, very mellow and playful with all other dogs. He is just starting to come into our MO foster's house and he is being very good boy while inside.
Fred can be a little shy when you reach out and touch him, but once he sees your not going to hurt him, he loves to be petted. He is just a truly good dog that strives to please and is just now learning what it means to actually be loved.
Please consider giving Fred a loving home he so deserves. You will not regret it!
Thank you for your interest in a rescue pup. They are just the best!!
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 (RHODE ISLAND & 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 at the Westerly RI Animal Shelter. 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 payable to the Westerly RI Shelter.
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.
