Trooper (JA)'s Info...
|Breed:||Labrador Retriever Mix||Color:||Black - With White||Age:||Puppy|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male|
Trooper did not have a great start in life. Our MO foster mom used to see him tied in the yard or on a porch when she drove by his home each day and in all types of weather. He always looked so pathetic. A county office then contacted her to tell her that the owner then moved and left the pup there. She told the officer that she would take him.
Trooper is a five month old lab mix who weighs about 30 pounds. He is still nervous and timid when given affection, not aggressive at all, he just yelps in panic until he finally realizes you mean him no harm..then he relaxes. With continued reinforcement of positive touch, he will come out of this. He has already made progress with this and has started approaching our foster mom for attention.
Please consider giving Trooper the love and patience he needs. He will flourish in a loving home.
Trooper is still too young to be neutered and PAWS offers a reimbursement of $60 once he/she is old enough to be neutered.
Thank you for your interest in a rescue dog..they are simply the best!

Please complete an online application – we respond to applications MUCH QUICKER than we do email inquiries which are quite difficult at times given the number that we receive – don’t miss out on this dog – complete an application -http://www.pawsnewengland.com/adoption-form/
An application does not mean you are required to adopt – it just lets us know you are seriously considering this dog for adoption.
PET INSURANCE: Paws New England has 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.
Rescue Group Info...
PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.
Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.
All of our dogs are located either in foster homes in New England or Tennessee/Missouri. Please email our volunteers to ask about the specific pet that you are interested in.

The adoption donation covers all pre-adoption vet costs (general health exam, vaccinations, heartworm testing/treatment when necessary)
Puppies under the age of 4 months will not be spayed/neutered prior to adoption upon advice of our veterinarians; small dog breeds may not be altered prior to six months if size prohibitive. Paw New England has a spay/neuter program in place with partner vets or if adopter chooses veterinarian of their own choice, reimbursement of $60.00 provided to adopter.
