good with kids and good with dogs.
I am good with kids and good with dogs.
Erebus and his sister Xena were part of a litter that we had adopted out but who had found homes before we got their siblings in our care. Their owners moved and could not take these two with them so they turned them back in to the people who had the puppies, who in turn called us to see if we could find them good homes. Xena is the more outgoing of the two, and Erebus is a bit shy at first (but will warm up once he feels safe). We were told that neither pup has had anything done with them so we will be getting them vetted and spayed and neutered on Wednesday, October 25, 2016 and will be ready to go to their new homes anytime after that date. These pups are approx 5 months old and are an australian shepherd/terrier mix. They should mature to be medium sized dogs and are still young enough to be able to fit into any home. You will be able to train them and teach them to be the dogs that you want them to be. They want attention and are playful little pups. They do need to put on some weight as they are a bit skinny but that is a simple "fix". If interested in either Erebus or his sister Xena (or both), please let us know by contacting us with your interest and adoption application via email or feel free to call us at (352)493-1255 for more information. The adoption fee for each pup will be $150 and will help to cover their vetting, spay and neuter and cost of care while with us.
We are a small rescue started in September 2004. To date, we have adopted out over 250 dogs and cats who may not have had a second chance. We rescue the majority of our pets from kill shelters and have them thoroughly vetted prior to going to their new homes. All of our pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm checked(dogs) and dewormed. We also microchip our dogs so that they can always find their way home. Big and small, we work to rehome them all. We are always in need of donations so if you can help us to help our pets, please contact us! The more people who get involved, the more pets that we can save! You can also see our pets and/or fill out our adoption application on www.petfinder.com. We look forward to hearing from you and making that "forever match"!

Our Adoption Process...
We require an adoption application to be filled out and approved prior to any adoption. Our adoption fee for our dogs is $125.00 and up and for most of our cats that still require vetting it is $75.00. We currently have a special adoption fee for our cats who are already completely vetted(spayed/neutered and UTD vacc )You can adopt one of these kitties for ONLY $25.00!!! If for any reason a pet that you adopt can not remain with you, we require that the pet be returned to Paws & Claws to be rehomed.We do NOT give refunds for any reason so please consider adoption carefully before you take a pet home. We also ONLY accept CASH as payment for our adoption fees.Our main requirement to adopt is LOVE! If you can offer love to a needy pet, please consider adoption. Your reward will be a devoted friend for life.
