Meet Chuman. Is he TOO cute or what? Chuman has arrived in New England.
Check out his addiitonal photos of when he first came into rescue (in the sink) to today in his foster home.
Chuman, Sawyer and Sierra (his sister and brother also listed and available) were rescued in Mississippi.
Update from foster mom (11/9/12):
Chuman has been cat tested and he did fine. He sniffed the cat, licked her face and eyes and walked away. We believe he will be fine with cats.
So, a little update about his personality and progress.... he's neutered, great with cats, other dogs, children and all people. LOVES to go for walks, does great on a leash, does great in the car, but is scared getting into and out of the car.
We are working on house breaking. He goes right for the front door when he gets out of the crate in the morning, but still has accidents in the house. He sleeps all night in his crate and never makes a peep.
He is polite when the other dogs are still eating, he waits for them to be done, then finishes whatever might be in their bowls, but doesn't try to steal while they are eating. He's learned "sit" and "down" and leaves things alone, for the most part, when commanded to do so. And he's super adorable!
Chuman's mother gave birth to him underneath an old country store and even though people came in the store every day, nobody wanted him or his sister Sierra (posted and available as well). Chuman was scared and had no idea how he got into this situation. One day, a man grabbed him when he tried to come out to get something to eat and brought him to a woman's home and she promised Chuman and Sierra that she was going to find him a loving, forever home. Poor thing was probably afraid that this man was going to hurt him, but he was only trying to help him. Lucky for Chuman, he has not gone hungry another day!
Chuman is a terrier/border collie mix. Chuman is 10-11 weeks old (as of October 1, 2012) and weighs approximately 10 pounds. He has had two sets of vaccinations, including a Bordetella vaccination and he has been neutered.
Chuman is waiting for his forever home. He has not be able to be a true puppy and he would love someone to love and hold him and make him feel safe. Wade is so sweet, and he has lots of kisses to give!
Thank you for your interest in adopting this sweet and adorable boy.

PET INSURANCE: 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. There are also numerous other pet insurance programs available to shelter animals.
QUARANTINE: Paws New England participates and abides by the quarantine rules and regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, RI.
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.
