Be my family forever

Hi everybody. My name is Kodiak. I think my family named me that because I reminded them of a Kodiak bear. It's funny because the volunteers here at Paws 4 You call me their big teddy bear, so I guess I really do look like a bear! I couldn't tell you because I've never seen myself. I heard you need this thing called a mirror to do that, which sounds totally mind-blowing. They don’t have mirrors at Paws 4 You, but they have them in human houses. Speaking of which... I'm looking for a new human house to live in. My family had a baby human, but didn’t have the time to train us to get along. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty disappointed. I thought family was forever and that I was part of it. I didn’t realize that humans get new families to replace old family members. Even so, I'm really hoping for a second chance at being part of a family, maybe a family that already has all of the members it wants so that I don’t have to get replaced later. A good thing about me is that I already know how to live in a house, how to live with a family, and I know some tricks! I know humans love that kind of stuff. I know 'sit,' 'down,' and 'stay.' I'm a quick learner, so I could learn whatever you wanted to teach me! But I really hope to learn that family IS forever and that dogs ARE family too.

About Paws 4 You Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Paws 4 You Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer 501(c)3 animal rescue organization based in Miami, Florida. Our top priority is to save animals from euthanasia at Miami-Dade Animal Services. An average of one hundred animals are destroyed every day at this county shelter! Rescued animals vary from being sick, injured, homeless and surrendered to simply lost. We give these animals a safe environment, professional medical care, hope and lots of love. Our animals are sterilized, vaccinated and ID micro-chipped. Some require major surgery from a specialist to repair broken limbs while others may need additional rehabilitation time and specific medical care - ranging from bordetella (kennel cough) and skin infections to cherry eye and heartworm treatments. Once Paws 4 You Rescue commits to helping an animal, we seek the best quality treatment available - taking no shortcuts. Our dogs stay at veterinary clinics, boarding facilities and foster homes until they find their forever families.

There are various other events that occur throughout the year that are listed on our website. Appointments can be made for during the week or evenings as well -- please call the Rescue Line to set one up or email

Our Adoption Process...

There is an adoption application used as a pre-screening tool (available on, references are required and house visits are made by volunteers. We request a donation with every adoption which includes sterilization, microchip & registration, current vaccinations and a heartworm/ehrlichia test. The adoption donation covers the boarding and medical expenses incurred on all rescues, not just one.
