Meet Linda, the other half of the dynamic Linda and Mike shepherd duo.
Mike has already been adopted but Linda is still looking for her perfect forever home!
She is a typical playful puppy, runs around for an hour then sleeps for 4! She is great in the crate and is eating and growing like a weed. Not fully house trained quite yet but with her being super smart I can't imagine that taking too long! She is going to be a BIG girl so she will definitely need some training. I think an adopter that is familiar with the shepherd breed would be the best fit. So shepherd lovers, Linda is your girl!
These adorable pups were found abandoned at a dumpster near Nashville TN – they were taken in and were very thin and malnourished with all kinds of parasites – but no more – they are thriving and growing fast!
Currently approx. 20 lbs at 13 weeks of age – Linda is up to date on their vaccinations, has rabies shots and will need her last round of puppy shots later this month (November). Linda was spayed while in quarantine at Westerly Animal Shelter on 11/10.
Linda is currently being fostered in Johnston, RI with 3 other big dogs and is doing great with them. She has had a quick encounter with a cat and seemed a little curious of it but never approached it. She tends to be a bit nippy at times of excitement but that will subside with her growing.

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.
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.

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.
