Take a look at sweet big YELLOW BUTTERBALL Zen!
He's a great size and looks so charismatic with his half chopped-off tail LOL. Goodness only knows what happened to the other half of his tail. Poor boy. But he's a sweet soul with TONS OF LOVE to give a forever family.

Zen is crate trained at his foster home (which is generally a good indication that, with a routine potty and feeding schedule, he is housetrained or will be very quickly after settling into his real home). While Zen is always up for a good game of fetch or chase, he's very mannerly and affectionate when the time calls for it.

He is appx. 3-4 years old and weighs 55 pounds. He is neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm negative, and takes monthly heartworm prevention.

Zen has no bad behavior issues with other dogs or people -- he plays and gets along great with his four-legged foster friends at his foster home. Zen loves everything and everyone. He is great with kids, dogs and cats. We think that he would love having a home with children and at least one other dog to play with. He's a very sweet, very sociable "people-oriented" who does not bark alot -- he's the kind of dog that would melt your heart if you'd give him just half a chance. Oh and he'd also love a warm blanket on a soft lap to cuddle in :)

So don't let this big yellow "love machine" get away from you! Fill out an application to adopt him soon! You'll be happy that you did and Zen will repay you with years of loyalty and love no matter how bad you look in the mornings!


If interested in adopting, please visit our website and complete an online adoption application.


Adoption Donation: $225

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 ($140.00 per dog). Unless otherwise stated, all of our dogs are located outside of Rhode Island boarded either at one of our vet clinics or in foster care. 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 a 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 one 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 it. 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.
