found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
Please send inquiries to this email address and not the general info email.
Flower is an adorable 1 ½ year old Boxer-Pit mix. This new momma is the perfect mid-sized dog at almost 50 pounds (which is a great change from the thin state she came to us in!), and all she wants is a forever home with a family that can appreciate all the love she has to give!
Flower is crate-trained and in fact loves spending time in her crate, like a security blanket. However, if you’re home she will want to snuggle with you and generally be near you. Her foster mom calls her sweet, cuddly, and gentle. She would love a family who could spend as much time with her as possible.
Flower has recently learned to give "paw" to her foster mom. She is low to medium energy and loves to explore.
She is also good on a leash and is house-trained. She would probably be best in a single dog home or in a home with another very friendly dog.
Flower has been cat tested and did fine with them. She was curious, but showed no agression towards them.
Please consider giving this gorgeous girl the home she deserves!
Adoption Donation: $ 400
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 (vaccinations, spaying/neutering -when age appropriate- heartworm testing/treatment when necessary and includes transportation up to New England at $140.00 per dog.
Please remember these are rescued dogs, not dogs coming from a breeder or behavior academy. They may have issues that can be worked with - we do our best to determine these ahead of time. Please do not expect them to be perfect. They are not, neither are we - that's why we love them so much!!!
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.
