Story
We are needing to rehome this sweet soul. Meet Axel. He is a neutered, almost four year old Great Pyrenes/Australian Shepherd. He has always been an inside dog. We have to admit that we are out of our element with this breed. We have always been a Labrador family and have never owned a Great Pyrenes before. Axel has such a playful personality, incredibly intelligent, and a wonderful protector. As much as we love him, we keep expecting him to behave like a Lab and yet he is not. He deserves to be in a family that understands the breed and can provide the perfect home for him. He is up to date on all of his shots and heartworm negative. He loves walks and laying his gentle head on your shoulder. He is not food aggressive, but good with our other dog. He has never been a livestock guardian, but guards our home well. We love him so.

Story
Hello. I’m Penny and I’m around a year old. They say I’m a Catahoula mix. I have webbed feet like a lab and double dew claws like a Great Pyrenees. I have a beautiful brindle coat. My foster mom says I am a really good girl but a little rambunctious. I’m great with dogs and cats, but I do like to chase. I weigh close to 70 pounds so I would probably not be good with smaller kids but 10 and older would be good. I’m doing good housebreaking. My adoption fee is $150. If you are interested in Penny, please visit www.pawscare.org, and click on the online application. We require the application to be filled out and approved prior to meeting her 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
Hi everyone my name is Tinker. I am a 5 year old Shiz-Tzu, I weigh 13 pounds. Right now I'm staying with a Foster family that has 2 dogs and 2 cats and we all get along together well. I am a lover and like to lap sit and snugle up giving as much loving as I get. I'm looking forward to a forever home with a great family. I am house broke, not perfect, but if for some reason if needed I also will use a "Puppy Pad". I do like to run when I am out side so a fence would be great but my foster family will tell how well I walk on a lead as well. So if you are looking for a new pet to add to your family, please consider me. If you are interested in Tinker, 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
Meredith is a puppy mill survivor! She waited almost 6 years to get her chance at freedom and now she has it! Meredith is flourishing in a foster home but she is shy of new people and situations and small children make her nervous. She would do best in a home without small children who live there, visiting would be ok. Meredith has learned freedom is great and she likes to run around the yard, chase playfully after the cat and thinks crinkle toys are the best thing since sliced bread! She gets along great with other dogs, but is a bit mischievous and likes to steel their chewies and run off with them! She knows that the biggest dog bed in the house is hers and you can't convince her that the smaller one is meant for her to sleep in. She has gotten comfortable enough with foster mom that she seeks attention and likes to be petted. She also loves dinner time and gets super excited to eat. Meredith will require a secure physical fenced yard as she is considered a flight risk. This is for her safety and her parent's sanity! She would do best in a home with another dog to continue learning how to be a pet. If you do not have a dog then experience with insecure puppy mill dogs is a MUST! Meredith's adoption fee is $315. She is spayed, received a dental, microchipped, current on vaccines and on monthly flea and heart worm prevention. Please visit leiashope.org for our adoption process. NOTE: WE ARE A VOLUNTEER RAN ORGANIZATION AND OUR APPLICATION PROCESS CAN TAKE 7-10 BUSINESS DAYS, DEPENDING ON OUR AVAILIBILITY AND YOUR REFERENCES. ALL OF OUR DOGS ARE IN FOSTER HOMES AND NOT AT A CENTRAL LOCATION. AN APPROVED APPLICATION IS REQUIRED BEFORE WE DO MEET AND GREETS. WE DO NOT SHIP OR TRANSPORT DOGS. YOU MUST COME TO THE LOCATION OF THE DOG TO MEET AND ADOPT.
