found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
My previous owner tied me to the fence post at the gated entrance to the local high kill animal shelter (in TN) in front of a sign that read "unlawful to leave abandoned animals" - I guess he couldn't read. Animal control found me the next morning and took me inside the shelter, which was scary but at least I had food and water there. This was in early October and I survived the shelter for almost 3 months, which is unheard of there.
In December, a nice volunteer with PAWS decided to take the dog who had been there the longest and this is how I got out of there. She thinks I am adorable and tells me I am a pretty girl often. I am young, 1.5-2 years old, and I weigh 39 pounds. I have soft red fur and a pretty, slender face and I am a shepherd mix.
I am a friendly, social girl who gets along well with other dogs. I am a little interested in cats but I seem to like them ok and do not attempt to hurt them in any way. I just want to play with them. I handle very well on a leash and love to go for walks or just run around and play in the backyard. I am very good with children as well. I bond very quickly with my people and would love to be your best friend. I like to go for car rides and behave well in the car.
I have been spayed, am up to date on vaccines, am microchipped and am heartworm negative. I am ready to come home for Christmas.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company where applicable).
Interested in adopting this fantastic canine? Please visit our website and complete an online application – we respond much quicker to applications than to emails as we receive a voluminous amount of email each day and it’s impossible to respond to all of them in a timely manner even though we try.
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 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.
