This is Seger! A very handsome boy!
Seger is a 2-3 year old 65 pound pit bull mix male that was seen running on a major highway in the rural south. A woman called him into her car and then contacted our MO foster mom to see if she could take him in, which she did.
Shortly after, one of PAWS trainer consultants visited our MO sanctuary and offered to take Seger to his training/boarding facility for future care and a behavior evaluation. Segar has been there a few weeks and has just flourished. He is so ready for his forever home.
This is an update directly from his trainer:
"Seger is an all around great dog. He doesn't display any food aggression and is very social in daycare with all the dogs. We have not introduced him to children but he is such a loving social dog with everyone he meets that I would not have any concerns with him living with children above the age of 8 or so. He sits and gives paw on command. He was unresponsive towards our cat, he could care less. I would start him in a home initially with crating as we recommend for most new adoptees."
So, there you go. Seger is ready and waiting. Please consider giving this great boy a loving home he so deserves.
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.
