Story
We acquired May almost a year ago from a rescue in Missouri. She is a sweet dog but has an easy to startle trait. She has snapped at faces when children have caught her off guard and had thier faces down towards her. The original rescue has been little help and with her age, vets are reluctant to uthanize. I think a home without children would be best. She plays well with our other male rescue and doesn't show any aggression towards him. But we have an older female that she has put in check a time or two. She is a sweet cumbersome couch companion and this is our try at rehoming before having her sadly euthanized as the last resort.

Story
Hi everyone. My name is Mowgli-Joe. I’m about 1 year old and weigh 9#. I was living with a couple but they split up and surrendered me to animal control. Right now I’m living with a foster family. They tell people how loving I am and that I just love to sit in a lap and snuggle. I would love a fenced yard so I can just run around but I also like to go on walks and meet new people. I won’t get much bigger, but I might gain a little more weight. I’m looking for a forever home so please add me to your family. If you are interested in Mowgli Joe, please visit www.pawscare.org, and click on the online application. We require the application to be filled out and approved prior to meeting him as all of our animals are in private foster homes. Please fill out all information as we cannot process incomplete applications. A phone number for your veterinarian is a must. We CANNOT process your application without a vet phone number.

Story
Due to a worsening long term health condition I am unable to continue the farm life and need to rehome Penelope. Penelope is very sweet, lovable and super smart, she catches on to a routine and instructions very quickly. She will bark/howl to alert you to something, she will talk to you lol, she is a guardian, loves to be outside, if she is not running around playing she is sitting and keeping watch over her family. She will need someone that can handle a large dog and a guide her, she will also need to bond well with her new family as this change will most likely cause some anxiety but I know she will adapt well in a loving environment. She loves to play with toys and get belly rubs, she will plop right down in front of you demanding them, also has an obsession with collecting socks. She also needs to be the only female dog, she does fine around male dogs with time to adjust.

Story
Toby is sweet little guy, he is 3 years old, weighs around 48 pounds. He has lived on the farm since he was 8 weeks old, he has been around goats, pigs, chickens, he is not left unsupervised around them or in with them but does fine outside while the animals are in their pens. He is also crate trained. He does bark and has a lot of energy so he will need a home that can provide a place for him to run. Toby is a great little guy that just wants love, attention and all the sticks he can find.
