Sanford (LOCAL 2/23)'s Story...

Please send inquiries to this email address and not the general info email.

This is Sanford, named by his wonderful sponsor, Melanie:)

Sanford has arrived in New England. His foster mom said he has been a great foster thus far. She has no complaints. Sanford is so sweet and has a great personality. He gets a long so well with his foster mom's dogs and her cat. He listens very well and just loves to be loved. He is SO cute. Sanford will be a great pet for anyone looking for a loving dog. He slept in his crate with no problems and is very good on walks and in the car.

Sanford is a puppy. He is a 7-8 month retriever mix that weighs about 50 pounds. Sanford was brought to our MO fosters home a while back because there was a man in a neighborhood that was shooting at stray dogs. He had already fatally injured one and a kind lady asked our foster if she would take three dogs that she had been feeding because she was afraid they would get killed or injured too.

Sanford arrived very thin, but now looks and feels much better. He is a very sweet, easy going pup. Tails always waggin'. He does not mind a crate and uses a doggie door to do his business. He gets along with the other dogs, but is not good at sharing his food. However, this is improving daily now that he knows he will never have to starve again.

Sanford is all vetted, neutered and is Heartworm negative. He is anxiously awaiting a forever home where he can be a families life long companion!!

Thank you for your interest in a rescue dog. They are the best!!

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 $50.00 quarantine fee will be applicable.


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

Sanford (LOCAL 2/23), a Barrington Retriever (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Retriever (Unknown Type) for sale in Barrington, or seeking a Retriever (Unknown Type) puppy 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 Retriever (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Retriever (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
