Hello! My name is Gage.
Gage is doing well in his foster home and LOVES LOVES the kids in his foster home. He will cuddle with them for hours and will wait outside their bedroom doors if they are closed.

I am a 1-2 year old male lab/collie mix. I was rescued from a high kill shelter. I have been told my great personality and good looks melted the kind volunteer's heart who took me in. I am loving life out of the shelter! I am in a foster home with other dogs and learning what it is like to be loved and spoiled and I have to tell you, it's wonderful! I am a tall boy and love to be around other dogs. I love, love, love people and have a very outgoing personality. I would make an excellent addition to any family, and if you have a spare doggie bed and have some time for belly rubs, that would be my idea of the perfect forever home. I am an active boy and would be best suited to an active family who likes to get out and play with me. I'd love to be someone's hiking or jogging partner!
I am working working on my manners and, I am a little ashamed to admit this, but I have been known to be a counter surfer. But food is just so tempting! I kind of think I am like a little terrier trapped in this huge body! I can also go over a 6 ft fence, so it's best I am what they call supervised when we play outside in a fenced yard. I am very smart and very strong. By lesson 3 of leash walking I am proud to report I walk like a gentleman to your right side with no pulling! Occasionally you might have to gently remind me to focus, but who doesn't need a reminder!
I am not overly fond of separation very much and would love a home with another dog or someone who is home most of the time.
I am Heartworm positive and I will be starting my Heartworm treatment soon so I will be healthy for my new home. I am also neutered and microchipped and up to date on vaccines.
Please consider making me a part of your family!

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.
QUARANTINE: Paws New England participates and abides by the quarantine rules and regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, RI. In certain instances, a $75.00 quarantine fee will be applicable.
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.
