Hey Friends! My name is Sweet Sydney. I'm 2 years old and I weigh only 29 lbs. They don't call me Sweet Syd for nothin' - I'm the nicest puppy you'll ever meet. I am sweet with all humans I've met, even the little ones! I like dogs, too. I ride well in the car. I like to nap on my comfy, cozy dog bed, but I would prefer the couch or the bed where the humans are. They're my favorite. I like to be near them and to cuddle with them. I am smart and food motivated, which makes training a lot of fun. I want to learn all the great things that every dog should know. I would like to find a home with people who will love me and spend time with me. I am not a hyper dog. I am on the calmer, quieter side, which means I'd like a home that is also calmer and quieter. Chaos isn't my thing. I know some dogs love it, but I like peace and relaxation when possible. I do like to play. I like toys and will chew on my toys and toss them around sometimes. Wanna lay on the couch with me? Please apply today! Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 30 days of free pet insurance, one session with a certified behavior trainer and microchip.
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.
