Story
My boxer is a really great dog who would make a well mannered family dog or a devoted companion for someone who would enjoy having a mellow best friend. I have had her since she was 6 weeks old and trained her to walk well on the leash, sit and do down plus she will wait when you tell her to wait. She is 6 years old and loves to go on trips in the car and I take her hiking off leash no problem. She is loving to all of my visitors and friendly to new people. She is completely house trained and will not do anything destructive. So she can be left alone in the house for up to six to eight hours without supervision. She does not have separation anxiety at all. She is very good with cats and children. Her ability to accept other dogs into her life is limited therefore a single dog household would be best for her. Edith would be a wonderful addition to your life because she has been so in my life loyal and very affectionate when you need a dog by your side.

Story
Meet Kylo: The Spirited Collie/Newfie Mix! Breed: Collie/Newfie Mix Age: 6-7 years Weight: 70 pounds Adoption Fee: WAIVED Kylo is a 70-pound ball chaser with a heart full of energy! She knows commands like sit, shake, down, and stay, showcasing her intelligence. Kylo is a social butterfly who believes personal space is overrated—she thinks she's a lap dog and loves being close to her human. Her ideal home is an active one that understands the balance between her love for activity and the joy of naps. While she's good in the car with a seatbelt and walks nicely on a leash, she does have some quirks. Kylo prefers to be an only child, so a home where she's the only pet is ideal. She's been known to chase away squirrels and birds, showing off her protective instincts. Kylo is a vocal companion, barking at strangers and howling when she's lonely. She warms up quickly with attention but may need time to adjust to new male friends. Her foster home includes a bearded husband, and they've become best buddies. This diva has a beautiful, flowy coat that requires regular brushing—she's a bit of a shedder, but it's a small price to pay for the love she'll bring to the right family. Kylo would thrive in a home with experienced pet parents, preferably without young children under 10 due to her sensitivity to loud noises. Ready to welcome this spirited girl into your home? Apply to adopt Kylo and let the adventures begin! Adoption Application: https://fuzzypawzrescue.com/adopt/adoption-application-2/

Story
Located in: Boise, ID Breed: Pug Mix Age: 6 Adoption Fee: $50 Application: https://fuzzypawzrescue.com/adopt/adoption-application-2/ This handsome gentleman goes by many names. Stumpy, AKA Sir Stumpington, Mister Sir, The Stumpmiester, Stump, Bubba Dub, Lord of the Underbite and many other absurd nicknames. This charming lad doesn’t care what he’s called, only that you’re talking to him. Stumpy is a sweet boy with a delightful underbite and so much spunk. He is about 6 years old, with a nice blend of chaotic playful energy and a love of lounging and naps. He is the king of zoomies, loves to carry his food bowl around, and is notorious for stealing blankets off of chairs to add to his dragon hoard (his bed nest). Despite all of his charisma, Stumpy is in need of a very special adopter who is patient, caring and willing to keep working through his quirks. Unfortunately, Stumpy has some major beef with his butt. It may be neurological, behavioral, or trauma related, but Stumpy seems to not realize that his tail and butt are indeed part of his body. This leads him to squabble with his own booty on a fairly regular basis. He has been treated medically and there is no physical medical concern to his body that is leading to this behavior. He takes daily medication to help with stress related to this issue. As funny as it may seem, it has left some serious consequences for him. He traumatically injured his own tail leading to an emergency amputation. Things that are normally relaxing and fun for dogs like: eating, kongs, and any food related enrichment, are quite stressful for him. He will resource guard any food related fun from his own back end. He does best when eating with a soft cone on that blocks the view of his behind. He does better if you watch him eat as you can verbally tell him to snap out of it and he also feels safer with you watching his back. Stump was found as a stray and very little is known about his past. He was unaltered and was not potty trained upon arrival to Fuzzy Pawz and it is suspected based on his thick coat, state of his feet and marking behavior that he was an outdoor dog. He has made great strides in potty training and as long as you let him out at regular intervals, he tends to stay accident free. He may need some continued assistance with potty training when transitioning to a new environment. Sir Stumpington is currently in foster with both cats and dogs and has done well with both. He does need a structured introduction to new dogs but quickly warms up. He has done great with living with multiple dogs but is not a dog recommended to visit dog parts or off leash dog areas as he quickly can become overwhelmed. He has done well with backyard chickens and ducks. He would do best in an adult-only home. Despite all his quirks, this little guy makes up for it with his hilarious personality. He is incredibly smart, easy to train, and eager to learn more tricks and commands.

Story
Located in: Boise, ID Breed: Lab/Hound Mix Age: 8(ish) Adoption Fee: $50 Jack is a wonderfully mellow dog with an amazing personality. He loves his ear rubs and chew toys but most of all he loves getting outdoors for all the smells and all the walks. He is great on a leash and leads the way with little redirecting. He ignores other animals including cats which he has been wonderful with in his temporary home. He is not afraid to let you know when it is breakfast or dinner time and loves to root around his food puzzle. Everyone who meets Jack comments how wonderful and mellow that he is. He has lost some of his hearing but is adapting well to hand and body commands. Jack is looking for his forever home and would benefit from a place that allows him to get outdoors frequently. He loves being around people and doesn’t mind other animals as long as they are respectful. He does have some allergies that are well-maintained with his medication which he takes without issue.

Chugs

Labrador Retriever

Male, 11 mos
Boise, ID
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Not good with kids, Good with dogs, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Located in: Boise, ID Breed: Lab Mix Age: 9(ish) months Adoption Fee: $75 neutered, vaccinated, microchipped Adoption Application: https://fuzzypawzrescue.com/adopt/adoption-application-2/ Chugs is a delightfully fun and energetic boy who came to Fuzzy Pawz when his people could no longer care for him. This guy is not only sweet and fun-loving but equally smart as well! He learns quickly and is VERY eager to please. He looks for direction from his people as if to ask “What do you want?” or “Is this okay?” He’s house-trained and crate-trained, but would rather sleep in your bed if he was allowed. This guy is a true cuddle bug—he comes up and puts his head nicely in your lap for pets, and maybe if he thinks you won’t notice, he will attempt to crawl in your lap. You’ll notice, but sometimes it’s just too sweet to resist. Chugs has not been exposed to many things in his young life, so can be fearful of new experiences and new people. He’s learning every day and making progress. Chugs can get very protective of the women in his life; he will bark/growl at anyone who gets close to his lady. He is young and eager to please and just needs a bit more confidence in the world around him. He will not do well with kids in the home; a quieter home life with slow introductions to the big wide world would be best. He will cry for a bit when put in his crate but is not destructive. We will recommend he does not live in an apartment, since he can get kind of loud when he’s upset about being left. Chugs is a big silly puppy that only wants love, attention, food, and play. What else is there? He would love a confident, happy dog sibling to play with who will tolerate his goofiness and sometimes overzealousness. He is big and still growing, so he might be too much for a small dog. His favorite game is tug, whether with people or a doggie playmate. Chugs will be a wonderful companion for any active family; hiking, running, camping; he’s up for it. He has so much potential with his smarts and willingness to please.
