Skywalker is a sweet pup that was found when he was around 6 to 8 months in January 2016 out in the cold at an apartment complex in Memphis, TN, eating out of a dumpster. The couple that found him fell in love but were unable to keep him in their apartment as they already had one dog so a friend suggested her aunt who is in rescue and she took him in.

He is now a little over a year old and has been neutered and fully vetted. He is a happy go lucky fellow who loves to play for hours with his pittie foster sister and his other smaller foster siblings. He loves the outdoors and loves to go for walks. He's kind of a zig-zagger when he walks but is getting better all the time and has been using a halter for walks. He likes to identify plants as he walks, by taking a taste of almost every plant he sees. We think he is a Pointer mix and he's even starting to stop and lift his foot when he's out walking and thinks he sees something.

He is still a pup with some puppy ways and likes to chew so he will need to be confined when by himself or kept busy or doggie daycare would be perfect for this boy since he loves to play. He is is used to going on a few short walks a day and does his business on those walks! He is looking for an active home with or without a canine sibling!

About Our Rescue Group...

PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.

Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are located either in foster homes in New England or Tennessee/Missouri. Please email our volunteers to ask about the specific pet that you are interested in.
