Meet Gale! Gale has arrived in New England.
Update from foster mom (3/6/13):
Gale is the perfect small sized dog! He is 14 lbs and house trained! He enjoys cuddling up with you after a long day, or playing fetch for a (small) ball or rolled up sock. He gets along with the 4 dogs in his foster home and strangers.
He walks well on a leash and does well in the car. He'll bark at you when he is startled awake from a nap, but soon calms down. His tail shows off his emotions- and when he gets excited its on super drive!
Gale is a little afraid of stairs. He'll take the human chair lift up and down them until he gets comfortable. He LOVES to get rubbed behind the ear or right above his cute little nose!
Gale and his 4 min-pin buddies (all listed under Min-Pin Mania) were left in a backyard pen in the rural south after their owners were forced to move. Someone notified our foster mom there and she took them in.
The group are about 1-3 years old and range in size from 11-14 pounds.
All of them are just the sweetest dogs, very social, playful, loving (and calm for their breed). They get along with each other and all the other smaller dogs at her sanctuary. They are being kept from the larger dogs for their safety. As you can see from the pictures, they also love human contact!!
They have all been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and are heartworm negative. All set for their fur-ever families!!
Gale is house trained!!! He barked at his foster mom one day to let him out. He is a smart boy and adjusting in his New England foster home. His foster mom will continue to update his bio as she gets to know him better.
Please consider giving one of these pups a loving home they so deserve.
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.
