Damien is a beautiful, 51 pound boxer mix male, and is approximately 3-4 years old, brown with white markings who thinks he is a lap dog – he tries to sit in everyone’s lap. He was surrendered to a local high kill shelter with his buddy (a male black lab who was rescued by another rescue and Damien was left behind because he tested heartworm positive and his buddy was negative).
He has a very nice temperament and is a friendly, social guy. He does well on a leash and off leash, he hangs around the yard and just enjoys being with his foster family. He appears to be housetrained (if you take him out regularly). He is well mannered, has not shown any interest in chasing the family cats and gets along well with the two smaller schnauzer dogs in the family.
He loves to go for car rides and is eager to hop in when invited – he will try to sit in your lap while you are driving. Damien loves to be with his family and just enjoys being a member of the family. He is a medium level activity dog and still very playful.
Damien is FANTASTIC on a leash. He doesn't pull, he likes to look up at you to make sure you are with him. He doesn't seem to know any commands, buthis foster family is working on sit. He must have had experience with a leash, though, as he does not pull or jerk or anything. Just happy to walk beside you.
Damien has been neutered, current on vaccines, rabies, and microchipped. He is undergoing heartworm treatment and will be available for his forever family in the next couple of weeks.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company where applicable).
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.
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.
