The little rascals are a title that perfectly fit this litter of pups.  There are 3 boys and 1 girl.  Their life motto at their 6 week old lives is PLAY HARD, NAP HARDER.  All of these puppies look and act like they may have some herding/shepherd breeds in their heritage. These puppies have several scarred marks that are starting to grow hair back, the theory is that these puppies may have been burned in places by an individual before being discovered.  While they may have endured pain at the hands of a human, they have not shown any sign of being shy or socially damaged by whatever may have happened.  All of these puppies are incredibly active due to their likely breeds in their bloodline.  They will need lots of time, exercise and stimulations for their incredibly smart natures.

The leader of the pack is Darla.  She is brave and a trailblazer.  She LOVES people and other dogs, adventuring around the house and initiating when everyone is awake and when everyone is chilling out. She has these scarred areas from someone inflicting cruelty on her head, back and tail.   They are all growing back hair so I imagine that these marks will not last much longer. She is sweet and likely needs a home with an active lifestyle.  She already has a tendency to stalk up to her brothers like a cattle dog and pounce on them with excited play.  A puppy like this could benefit from a life with lots of time exercising, getting to enjoy the outdoors and perhaps getting the opportunity to put some of the skills that come with her breeding to use.  She has done well with children, adults, all kinds of handling and all kinds of dogs.  She is incredibly smart, knowing when to get in and out of the kennel, where its okay to go potty and that her puppy teeth are sharp so to that hands and toes are for petting and not nibbling ;)

Adoption fee is $250

About Paws For Life NC An FCHS Program

About Our Rescue Group...

FCHS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised entirely of volunteers from Franklin County and throughout the state and country. It was formed in 2002 to help solve the problem of unwanted dogs and cats in this region. Its long-term goal is to build an animal shelter where area pets can find safe refuge until they can be adopted to permanent homes. Its immediate goals are to develop a strong foster program to remove adoptable animals from the Franklin County Animal Control facility and to decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats in Franklin/North Wake counties through spay/neuter public education programs

Our Adoption Process...

1.After you find A Dog or Cat, review the description of the foster you are interested in to make sure that the information we have fits with your particular needs and desires. In most cases, the information on the website is current and gives the information that we have about the particular foster. The picture of the foster does not tell the whole story.

2.Complete the adoption application. Please make sure that you give us as much information about yourself as you can. List all animals currently living with you including other dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and rodents. The application needs to be complete in order to help us determine if the foster you have chosen is a good match for your home. has the applications. This is step one.

3.Once the application is submitted you will usually receive an email letting you know if the foster would be a good match for you and making arrangements for you to meet the dog at one of our adoption events. Sometimes a foster is best shown at the foster home due to his or her personality. We will let you know where the foster home is and arrange a time that works both for you and the foster home.We do require that everyone who will live with the foster to come and meet them. There is a chance we may tell you that the foster you are interested in is not a good match and may suggest another foster.

4.If, after meeting the foster you decide you would like to adopt him or her, a home visit will be scheduled. Someone from the Franklin County Humane Society will call and do the visit. The foster does not come on the home visit. Home visits are required before any foster leaves our program.

5.If more than one person applies and meets the same foster, all things being equal, we go in the order the applications were received.

6.Once the home visit has been completed, you will be asked to complete an adoption agreement. Please read the agreement carefully to make sure that you understand what you will be agreeing to.

7.An adoption fee of $250 for dogs under 6 months $225 for 6 months and older and $95 for cats, Senior Cats $50. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the fosters while in foster care. All FCHS fosters are altered, current on shots, micro chipped, and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out. We are all volunteers and as such receive no monetary compensation for our work with the fosters. The adoption fee is used to help defray costs in the rescue and care of the fosters.

8.Congratulations! You are on your way to having you new furry companion. We hope that you and your new companion share a life of love and happiness. We welcome any comments you may wish to give us about your foster at any time.
