Update from Grover's New England Foster mom (5/1/13):
Grover was rescued from a shelter in TN and is an absolute LOVE! This boy (estimated at 2 yrs., 55 pounds) LOVES to be outside and would love to join you and your family for walks, hikes, and play time! Tug-o-war, balls, and squeaky toys are all faves! When inside, Grover's very well behaved!
Grover is totally house trained, and great about going into his crate for a few hours when his Foster Mom goes to work in the morning. He hasn't gotten into ANY mischief in the house-- not even a chewed flip flop!!
Grover loves his walks, and walks well with his harness. His tail wags for everyone he meets, and he does great with women, men and kids. Greets other dogs very well, and loves to play!! He does great in one-on-one play situations. As much as he loves to walk, play, and watch the world go by, Grover is also a snuggler and thinks he's a lap dog. :) Check out this awsome pup!!
Grover has been neutered, vaccines current, rabies, and microchipped. He did test positive for heartworms and has undergone treatment without complications. If you would like to know more about Grover, his foster mom will be glad to talk with you and answer any specifics. He would do well as an only dog so he could enjoy all the attention from his family.Thanks for looking at sweet, adorable “Grover.”

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.
