Story
Cookie is a really timid and shy dog who’s and 11 months old. I got her last year in July 1st and been keeping her ever since. My cousin was going to adopt her so he asked me to watch Cookie for him since he was in the military and his wife was busy working. It was until December or January that he decided he didn’t want Cookie anymore and wanted to adopt a pit bull instead. He didn’t tell us and I’ve just been watching Cookie. Cookie is protective and can sense if your energy is bad or good. She is sassy and will side eye you from time to time. Once she gets used to you, she will adore you. She loves eating my food, she snatched my food out of my hand many times before. I’m looking for an owner who will love her the same way I love her. Who will take care of her and treat her well. Someone who’s experienced with raising dogs that are a bit tougher to raise than most dogs. I’m in a desperate situation and struggling right now, I just want Cookie to live well.

Story
Otra is a gentle giant. Dog-friendly with dogs of all sizes. People-friendly, but may be too much for little kids. Super handsome, Otra, is an Akita mix and is the goofiest most well natured boy you’ll meet! He weighs around 95 pounds and is such a gorgeous fluffy boy.    Otra is great on leash, is crate trained, and is house trained. Otra lovessss other dogs, sometimes too much for their liking. He loves chasing his doggy friends' tails, which can sometimes annoy them. When he gets corrected, he gets so sad. He is essentially a 90lbs puppy. His ideal home would be one where he has a doggy friend to play with and preferably a fenced in yard.    Otra is a very loving boy. He is very playful and is mouthy during his playtime. He will give you his paw to trick you into putting your hand within reach so he can chew on it. It is adorable and not malicious in any way, but his future family must know about this and be okay with it!    Otra has a degenerative eye condition and will continue to lose his vision over time. Right now his vision is pretty good, but sudden movements do spook him, and he can be a little bit head shy. Due to his vision loss and mouthiness, Otra is looking for a home without small children.       (DOB 8/29/2019) As part of Otra’s $300 adoption fee, he will be neutered, microchipped, up to date on age-appropriate vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.  If you have questions about this sweet boy, you can email  Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Otra, you can fill in an online application by going to our website and clicking the" Adopt"  button on his profile at:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. ##1860067##

Story
I am reaching out for some urgent help. There is a 10-month-old husky who needs a home urgently. There is an elderly man who can no longer take care of his dog. We have had him sign a right surrender form. The vet told him the dog will need surgery on her back hip. The dog has been neglected, and we believe physically abused. Despite that she is sweet and full of joy. I have reached out to everyone I know, and I cannot find her a home. Please help! The owner's son has told us he will not be coming by anymore to look after the dog. Please help. She is so sweet.
