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.

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.

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gage (TIP), a Barrington Labrador Retriever/Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Collie for sale in Barrington, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Collie dog from a breeder in Barrington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barrington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Barrington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Collie breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
