Story
Pringles has immense love to give to her human friends. She loves kids!  She was shy at first but is now generous with tail wags, jumping around in a circle and random kisses. Are you a family looking for a furry 4-legged family member? Then please consider sweet Pringles! Though her origin story wasn’t one of compassion or care, she relishes in all of the love and attention now! She is so sweet. She is done good with potty training with her foster family; keep her a schedule and she is good to go. She is quiet (haven't heard her bark yet). Pringles is also super smart. With her love of food, she is treat motivated to learn and please her family. Plus, any kind of praise, love and attention go a long way. She will beam with happiness and pride! She really trains fast; her leash walks have gotten so much easier so quickly! She is a tiny pup at a little over 40 lbs, so a really great size! Not only does Pringles love Pringles, she really loves food in general; she loves to eat! She may get closer to the 50 mark as her final weight. She has shown some a little sass at random times to the foster family's dog (also a female) but could be corrected with time, patience, and training. Pringles would probably be best as an only dog. She is also a great sleeper. Pringle loves being with her people and would rather be inside with you than running around outside. For that reason, she does not require a fenced in yard and would be a good choice for apartment or condo living (as mentioned, she is a quite girl, too). She is amazing; she has soooooo much love and affection to give and will shower you with her caring; she deserves the love she gives.  The question that is often asked; "Why Pringles you ask? Was she really named after the chip??" Yep, just like the chips! She had some Pringles at the shelter and was a favorite of the staff, so her nickname was kept. As part of Pringles’s $300 adoption fee, she will be spayed, microchipped, up to date on age-appropriate vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. If you have questions about this sweet little girl, you can email  Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Pringles, you can fill in an online application for her under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. ##1950588##

Story
We got Lucy a few months ago and things seemed fine but the last few weeks she has started getting aggressive with our other females and had to start keeping them separated. She gets along with my boys but I keep a close eye on her. She is a great dog when she is by herself. I really hate to rehome her but we have 6 other dogs. She loves to give lovins and get lovins back. She makes a great guard dog and only barks when something or someone is there. When we walk she stays close to me and is very loyal. She knows sit, stay, come, wait, go to your room and we been working on sitting pretty. She gets excited with treats and need to be reminded to take it easy and is slightly food aggressive with the other dogs but I can take her food or toys with no problem. She loves tug n war with rope toys and chews only on her toys. She has never had a potty accident since we got her. We were told she is good with kids/babies but not sure as we have no kids or cats. Sweet n lovable Lucy needs you!!

Not good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Zeus is a loving dog who just wants to be with his people. He loves walks and play, but he doesnt see the point in chasing a ball. He like soft and hard chew toys, going places and meeting people My husband and I grew to love Zeus when he belonged to our neighbors. We were concerned that he wasnt getting any social interaction during the past two years, just left alone in the backyard once his primary owner went to college. When his family surrendered him to animal control we couldnt risk him be euthanized, so we adopted him. As much as we love Zeus, having him has been difficult, both because he is too rambunctious fo be trusted around our cats, and because my husband has physical issues that keep him from playing with Zeus or taking him for walks when I am at work. Zeus still thinks, at around 70 pounds and almost 3 years old, that hes a puppy. He hasnt built up a lot of stamina yet, but he recovers quickly. Unfortunately, at 65+ my husband and I dont recover nearly as quickly!

River

American Staffordshire Terrier

Spayed or Neutered,
Story
River is a smart, housebroken, crate trained, and food motivated approx one year old mix.. His foster home has been working on leash skills and he already knows several basic commands. He would do fantastic with a single young adult or child-free couple who have some experience with dogs already and can continue to build on the foundation they have been working on. He is young and has a lot to learn. River’s ideal home has: A dog his size that will play with him and help him learn doggy social skills, his foster home only has small old pups and he wants them to play so badly. A fenced in yard for zoomies and games of fetch (Eventually he might even learn to bring the ball back!) He’s never attempted to escape the yard but a 6’ tall fence is recommended so he’s never tempted. He can leap clear over the couch… Maybe agility training is in his future! No small kids - he is fostered with several kids, as young as 4 years old, but is very much a puppy at heart does not seem to realize his own size and strength and can still be a bit unpredictable. Lots of durable toys like Kongs and Benebones available. He LOVES to chew on toys but does a really good job only chewing what he’s allowed too. Stuffed animals with squeakers are a blast for him - albeit very short lived!

Stanley

American Staffordshire Terrier

Male, Adult
Wake Forest, NC
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Good with dogs, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
This guy. He's been through the MOST. He was dragged out of his yard by another dog in a violent fashion, barely making it out alive. Taken to urgent care, he was handed over to animal control after his treatment. He was fighting for his life. Because of what he looked like, no other rescue wanted this guy, but we couldn't let him die after he just fought so hard to live! Luckily, a very knowledgable foster home said she would take him til he healed and work on his medical needs. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and HW-. He is an amazing soul and good boy. We hope you will consider him if your dog needs a dog - he really wants to play with other dogs! Another dog can also be a mentor to him and show him that the world isn't so scary, that there are good people in it! Older kids are fine in a home for Stanley.

Story
Hi there! My name is Josephine. Thanks for checking out my bio! I'm roughly 4 years old, but a true lady never reveals her age. Other than that, I don't have many secrets, and I have so much to tell you! I currently live with 3 other dogs, and I love all of them. I've also met some dogs on my various outings, and I think all of them have been super cool. I love to chew on toys and am happy to chill and hang out wherever you are, so I'm an ideal work from home buddy. I love pets, and I'm not shy about letting you know when I'm ready for them. No playing hard to get here-I'm a girl who knows what she wants! However, I don't like to yell or talk loudly and would much rather whisper sweet stories in your ear. In the mornings or when something exciting happens, I'll talk (grunt/grumble) up a storm, but overall, I'm a pretty quiet gal. I like to sleep in my pen at night and for naps during the day. A woman needs her beauty sleep. So, see...I'm sort of perfect! Now that I've won you over with all of my charm, let's get real with each other. I was in pretty rough shape when my foster humans found me, and they've done so much to help me. But just like everyone, I'm still a work in progress. I'm heartworm positive but have already completed all of my treatment. So now I just have to wait a few months to get retested and get that negative test result back to be officially heartworm free. Not so bad, right?! I also came to them unable to use my back legs. I do have feeling in them; they just don't like to talk to my brain right now. Maybe that's why I like to chat so much-to make up for my silly legs! The good news is I can get around really well with my front legs. I can scoot on the floor all by myself, or if you're up for some teamwork, I can walk around while you hold my back legs up with a sling. I also have a really cool wheelchair. Using it is a lot of work and can be tiring, but I love using it for short distances or to walk around the yard like an independent woman! I'm going to physical therapy twice a week to help my legs talk to my brain and keep them nice and strong. It's a lot of work, but I'm making impressive progress. And I'll need my new humans to keep up my therapy so I can keep it up! I'm now able to stand on my own and even take a step or two! Let's find out together how far I can go! Finally, I know it's sometimes considered impolite to talk about bathroom stuff. But with a pup like me, it's best to be up front. I know to do my business outside, but because I'm paralyzed in my back end, I have some trouble in that department. Poops are pretty easy most of the time. I just need extra help getting in position and balancing. Going pee is a little more difficult for me. It's hard for me to get everything out, so I'll need my new humans to assist me and express my bladder. But don't worry, my foster humans can show you how! And I like to think of all of this as a unique bonding opportunity! I know some of this might seem a bit overwhelming, but I have no doubt the perfect family is out there for me! Plus, my foster humans are ready to help answer any and all questions, so let's talk more and see if we're a match!
