Story
I need to rehome my 4 year old Bernesoodle due to Allergies. I adopted him in hopes of training him for my therapy dog but for some reason I’m allergic, I know doodle can be a hit or miss with allergies depending on what coat they inherite. He is a large 64 lb baby that needs to follow you everywhere you go. I work from home but when I do appointments and stuff I either leave him out or crate, depending on how long I will be gone. Not really hyper, will play but likes his naps as well. Absolutely no potty issues and I take him out 3-4 x a day. He needs to be groomed, I just had him fixed and he can’t get groomed until after 6/5.

Story
We are accepting applications for our sweet girl, Lorelai. She was a pull from Memphis Animal Services, on September 21, 2022. When she came to us she weighed 26lbs & was heartworm positive, She is with a foster who was getting her through her first few critical months, but still has her. She is more than ready for her furever love!! She is completely house trained, and is a very well behaved house guest. She loves all people, though she is more comfortable with her doggie friends who are more on the chill side. She has gone through her heartworm treatment, over 6 months ago. She is extremely sweet, despite all of the horrors that she endured before coming into our rescue.

Story
Hello, my name is Clooney! Clooney is a courtesy posting for a kind & loving family who sadly find themselves in a position of needing to lovingly rehome this gorgeous, sweet dog. Clooney wrote up a description of himself and he would like you to read it: "I am a mixed Brindle Pitbull breed and am about 3.5 years old. I am a big cuddle bug and sometimes don't even know my own size as I always sit with my owner on her recliner. Although we both don't fit very well, I love to snuggle . I have really big paws and I love to play with the hose in the summer. Its my favorite activity! I am so excited to see all the guests that come to my house to visit. Although I may need some work on jumping as I get so excited. I do really well with other dogs although I've never met any kitties. I think I may be just a tad rough with my house play that I may be best to be in a house with no children or adults only as I don't know my own strength. One of my other favorite past times is to lay in front of the fireplace on cold nights. I'm looking for my forever home and a family that I can continue to love unconditionally. Give me a few chew bones , an occasional toss of the stick and I will be the happiest big pitty ever! Take a peak at my adorable photos and I will melt your heart." If interested in adopting handsome Clooney, please submit an online application on the PAWS Ohio website @ www.pawsohio.org under the ADOPT tab. Thank you!

Story
Bowser came to rescue through no fault of his own! He is a 10 month old long haired chihuahua mix full of puppy energy! He is looking for a foster to adopt home while he finishes his vaccines and is neutered. Bowser appears to have some separation anxiety as his previous family was with him nearly always - he makes his displeasure known by barking. He is learning how to play appropriately with toys and will use puppy pads, but needs a patient adopter to help with house breaking. In his temporary foster home, he has proven to be quick to learn as he decompresses and allows his foster mom to put his harness on for going outside. Bowser is outgoing and playful. He would benefit from having a similar sized doggy companion to play with. He is very unimpressed with cats, preferring to bark at them. It is possible that, with time and slow introductions, he could coexist peacefully with cat.

Luna is a gorgeous 4yr old German Shepherd looking for a loving, active home. She prefers to be the only apple of your eye since she can be a bit protective of her owners, in true GSD fashion! Luna loves her toys and enjoys walks in her neighborhood. She is fully UTD on vaccines and is already spayed - so she is turn-key ready for her new family!
