My story

Zirco would love a home willing to give him the attention he deserves! He was found as a stray in an area that is known for dogs being dumped. He would love a home with older kids to play with (has a little too much energy for toddlers or young kids), or an active young couple, or another dog his size. Zirco gets along well with other dogs. He knows sit, down (needs more training on down), drop it, stay (needs more work on this one). Learning to not jump on people. Foster mom says he’s a great dog, learns very quickly and wants to please.He loves to be petted, but not overly snuggly basically because of his size. He loves playing outside, running around. Does not try to dig out, but might dig a hole to lie in. He does rush doors and needs to be considered a flight risk in his new home. He loads up in regular car, tries to load up in an SUV, but needs help if it’s real high and rides well in the car. He is food motivated to the point he has a hard time training with treats because he’s constantly looking for the treats in your hand. Responds well to being praised, eager to please.

More about this rescue

PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes. Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.
