Please meet Flint - his motto would be LIFE IS GOOD!

Flint is constantly happy, constantly cute and constantly goofy. He gets along with all dogs, kids and people. He would be fine with kids of all ages as he is laid back. He is housebroken, knows sit, down and come and is crate trained

Flint weighs about 42 pounds, is medium energy and about 6 months old as of 2/27/13. He will make a wonderful companion. If you notice he smiles in all his pictures because he is always smiling because life is good.

Flint is a gorgeous black and white 8 month old male pointer mix. Flint and his brother were in a high kill southern shelter. Flint's brother was adopted, and a kind volunteer spotted Flint and offered assistance. Flint's luck changed that day, and we know he has a bright future and wonderful days ahead of him! Flint is calm and has a great temperment. He is a friendly dog, and gets along great and plays nicely with other dogs. Flint is also crate trained.

Flint is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines. He is also heartworm negative and on preventative. Flint is ready for his forever home, where he'll be loved and spoiled rotten!

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 $50.00 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

Flint (LOCAL MA 2/18), a Barrington Pointer puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pointer for sale in Barrington, or seeking a Pointer 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 Pointer breeders who help with Pointer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
