This handsome, handsome boy smiles......yes, that right, smiles. His trainer at John Gagnon's Pet Resort says this makes some people nervous because they think he's showing his teeth but he's really grinning!!!
Bear is a great dog, LOVES people and is unbelievably affectionate. It's dogs that he's not too keen on - he needs to be an only dog and he won't be the dog you take to the dog park - he's made it known that he prefers human company.
Breed: Lab mix
Age: approx. 4-5 years old
Weight: 55-60 pounds
Has sucessfully completed HW treatment.
Bear is currently fostering at John Gagnon's Pet Resort in Colchester, CT. If you choose to adopt Bear, not only do you get a wonderful dog, you get the added benefit of knowing this dog has been screened by a trainer who will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Bear has a great SMILE. When Bear was with his foster mom in TN, she used to tell him to show her his smile and he would (see the first picture). He is loving and good around people, and is good with most dogs, but this would need to be carefully watched in a new environment.
Springtime is a great time to add a new member to your family. Please consider adopting Bear and giving him the life he so justly deserves. He has waited a long time for his forever home. Please consider adopting Bear and he will make you smile.

The adoption donation covers all pre-adoption vet costs (vaccinations, spaying/neutering -when age appropriate- heartworm testing/treatment when necessary and includes transportation up to New England $125.00 per dog.
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.
PAWS of New England is not shelter but a rescue and thus is not funded by any city or state organization - we rely solely on the donations of our adopters to help defray the costs associated with saving these precious lives.
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.
Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you too are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption fees. Without these funds, our rescue efforts would not be possible.
ALL KNOWN INFORMATION IS LISTED HERE. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
Please click on the "Donate" button below to make your adoption donation. If you can not adopt at this time, but would like to support the mission of PAWS New England, we would be endlessly grateful for your donation. PAWS relies entirely on donations and grants to maintain our operating budget. Without the generosity of people like you, we would not be able to save dogs like the one pictured above. Thank you for your support!
