Story
Dakota Jones is a silly and sweet gentle giant who absolutely loves affection and being social! She is playful and loves humans of all ages. According to her foster, her favorite things include belly rubs, tennis balls, and treats. She is house trained, good on leash, and can be safely left home alone. Dakota will need to be the only animal in the home as she can sometimes be reactive to other dogs on leash and can be a strong puller when she sees cats, but her goofy ways will be all you need! She is very playful, likes to play fetch and sometimes gets zoomies and likes to chase you around the home. She plays hide and seek with her foster and will even chase lights similar to a cat playing with a laser pointer. Inquire about this funny senior lady today!June 8, 2023, 7:13 pm

Hi there, I’m Finn! I’m a new kid here at Paws For Life and the staff at the People and Pet Innovation Center are just getting to know me. I am a sweet and social pup that loves to meet new people and am ready to find a forever home full of love. I am eligible for 6 weeks of free training in the Prison Training Program after adoption, which will help me with crate training, basic commands and my loose leash walking skills! If you are interested in meeting me or my other friends here at PFL, please come visit us at the People and Pet Innovation Center Tuesday through Sunday from 11-5, or at our Saturday adoption events! Check back soon for additional information about me as the staff get to know me a little better!!

Story
Kona has been great with our family for the past 4 years, however she is an aggressive breed and has some major anxiety issues. She is very protective of the owner and the owner's home. She will show aggressive behavior when other people or dogs are around the home. In light of this, we have enrolled in 1 on 1 advanced training in order to help the owner know how to handle her in triggering situations. In contrast, she is able to cohabit the play area where we take her for boarding and has no issues with aggression there. This is the one place where she feels comfortable enough to not be protective, and to play with other dogs and people. After a minor but concerning protective incident, we are making the difficult decision to look for a home that will give Kona the leadership and understanding that she needs as a protective breed, as well as the space to be able be independent, and encouraged to find an appropriate role in the family "pack."

Story
Helena is huge! She’s still putting on muscle but she’s at least 160lbs right now. She is a pure Armenian Gampr. This site does not have that as a breed option. Helena was surrendered while in labor and required emergency surgery to deliver the puppies. The people that “owned” her claimed to not have any money for vet care and were driving around with her in the car for hours looking for a vet to do the surgery for free. Finally they ended up at an emergency hospital that knew our friends at HOPE FOR PAWS and they agreed to help with the surgery only if they surrendered the dog to them. They surrendered her and then had the nerve to ask if they could leave a $1,000 deposit for one of the male puppies! Some people are amazing! Of course we would not adopt to them! Helena was so neglected! She had a prolapsed vagina that they said had been that way for “a few months” and they never got her medical care. She was extremely dirty, under weight and she’s lucky she survived! She was too weak to nurse the puppies so they were bottle fed. She is under 2 years old, still a kid herself. She is great with kids and other animals. She is best with larger dogs, she is too rough with the little chihuahuas and small breeds.
