Hi! My name is Scooby! We have no idea what my breed combination is, but with these ears ... perhaps part mule deer? Either way, I am a sweet dog. I am a neutered male who is under 1 year old. I only weigh 35 lbs and I am full grown. I have a gentle soul. I am very sweet, playful and smart. I have no issues with someone handling my ears, paws, mouth or giving me hugs. I hope to find a laid back, quieter home. Chaos makes me jumpy. I am more in tune with the slower speed of life. Please give me a chance! Apply today! Adoption fee: $20. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance, one session with a certified behavior trainer and microchip.
Apply online: www.pawsforliferescue.org. Complete this form and a volunteer will contact you to answer questions and to schedule a meet-n-greet.

Games, raffles, entertainment and fun for everyone!
NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.
Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
