Update from foster mom (11/13/12):
Adorable little 20lb Jewel is heartworm free and healthy now. She has her stamina back , plays and acts like a puppy! The vet estimated her to be about 3, my own opinion is that she is a little younger.
She loves to walk in the woods and fields, chase her foster sister and play with squeaky toys. She is super sweet to people and kids. She is sensitive to being bumped and stepped on so babies and toddlers would probably not be a good idea for her. Older children would be fine. Jewel is NOT aggressive at all with any humans and would make a great addition to a family.
She is a very submissive dog to people, somewhat bossy to, and picky about what other dogs she likes. Her best playmate would be small to midsized, active and submissive. I think she would be fine as an only dog, with hopefully a well mathced playmate as she just loves to run!!!
She is all beagle-and acts like one! Leashes and fences are a must-as is some time doing beagle things, like sniffing, sniffing and more sniffing! She loves to play and interact with her ' person' most of all! She will spend all day with you, and while you go out she'll play with her Kong or chew on her bone-she is crate trained and sleeps there nicely at night, hopefully near her person .
Beagles tend to not enjoy long hours at home alone, but need company. She is super cute to be around, a tiny tclown at times-she always tries to please-very sensitive to a cross word, she cowers if she thinks you are angry-breaks your heart! She does well with my cat,a little bossy- met another cat that told her he was boss and that was that! We love her-and hope someone will fall in love like we have.
Jewel is an adorable , sweet tiny female Beagle mix. Jewel is a little gem of a dog, survived her ordeal as a stray ,to land in the arms of the famous Julie Adams in Missouri.
Jewel was tick covered and found to be heartworm positive. Jewel is finishing her heartworm treatment and has a shiny coat and a happy smile! Jewel is approximately 3-4 years old, and weighs about 20lbs.
She loves people in spite of her rough life, and wants nothing more than to spend all day with you! Here favorite things are , being held like a baby,belly rubs, walking and sniffing, and playing with her squeaky toys.
Jewel would prefer to be an only dog, and save all her love and attention for you! She sleeps nicely in her crate at night -as long as you are snoring nearby she'll sleep as long as you do!
This little one will never be an off-leash dog- beagles are special and like to wander. Jewel will love a fenced yard ! WE do not think she would do well in an apartment. Jewel is housetrained and does well with dog-savvy cats. She will be spayed soon and ready for a new family to love! Jewel would do well with someone home most of the day.

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.
