Chloe is an approx. 2 year old, 50lb bundle of happiness and love!  She's a brindle boxer mix with a tail that never stops wagging.  She walks good on a leash and responds quickly/easily to correction.  She loves to be with her people whether that's inside or outside.  She'd make a great family dog as she loves everyone she meets but she might be too much for little kids (I could see them getting knocked down).  She's dog friendly and seems to take her cues from the other dog ... if the other dog wants to play, Chloe plays; if the other dog ignores her, Chloe is happy to play by herself with toys or chew on a bone.  Chloe is housebroken and crate-trained - she happily goes into her crate because she knows she gets a biscuit when she does.  She's knows her commands of sit, stay, down, shake, come and drop it (drop the toy).  She loves food - she will be your supervisor in the kitchen hoping for something to be dropped.  Second only to her love of food is her love of toys, specifically squeaky toys.  I think she loves hearing herself make them squeak!!  She still has lot of puppy and energy in her, so exercise is a must.  I think she'd make a good running partner although I haven't tried this theory out yet.  She likes to chew, but in her defense she has not chewed anything that wasn't hers (toys and her blankets) - she's never touched our shoes or area rugs or anything on the floor other than her toys.  Chloe is just a sweetheart.  We get up at 5am every morning and she opens her eyes and the tail starts thumping but she's content to lay on her bed until she knows for sure we're up and then she's ready for breakfast!!  Whoever adopts Chloe is going to have an awesome member of the family.  She's spayed, microchipped, heart worm negative,had a full vet exam and current on age-appropriate vaccinations and monthly preventives.  Her adoption fee $225.  Apply at www.pawsforlifenc.org show less

Hi! My name is Cupid an adorable 6-month-old shepherd mix. Unlike the guy with the wings, I don't shot arrows. All I have to do is give you one look with my puppy eyes and you'll be in love.    When I came to my foster mom's house she was very sad to find out that I was very scared of people and did not want her to touch me. She does not know what happened to me before she got me from the shelter, and I'm not telling. My foster mom tried working with me but realized she needed something to help to break me out of my shell. And she was right! So she got another foster puppy and he was the best friend I ever had! He taught me that it was fun to run and play with other dogs and toys. He also showed me that I didn't need to hide all the time in my crate and that it was much more fun hanging out with my foster siblings and my foster mom. Once my friend showed me all these things it was time for him to got to his new family. My foster mommy says I'm like a completely different puppy now, but I still have one hurdle my foster mom has been working to get over...I'm still afraid of being touched. I will be near her and even touch her, but I get scared when she tries to touch me back. My foster mom says I'm going to need a very special new family that will 1. Need to be very patient knowing that I need time to overcome my fear of touch. 2. Have another confident and outgoing young dog that I can play with. This is a must. 3. Have a securely fenced back yard so I don't escape if I get scared. If you work from home that would be great! I'm also great with cats. I may bark and chase them a little, but honestly, they scare me so I don't do much more than that. I'm not sure how I'll be with little kids so probably home with none or older children would be best. As I said before, I LOVE LOVE LOVE to play with the dogs in my foster home and will need to go to a new home with at least one other outgoing and confident dog that I can learn from and play with. I also love to play with toys, any kind of toy! Give me a Kong, a rope, a ball or a squeaky stuffed toy and I'll have a great time. Once you're done with your yogurt containers, I do a great job of cleaning them out. I'm working on leash training and am pretty much puppy pad trained. This is a little behind because my foster mom has a hard time touching me to get the leash on me. I am crate trained, up to date will all my shots, microchipped and neutered. I weigh about 35 pounds now and my foster mom thinks I may be about 50-60 pounds when I'm all grown up.  If you think we may be a good fit, head on over to our website pawsforlifenc.org and fill out an application. show less

Hi! I am Goldie. I am a 7yo German Shepherd mix, I love people and children, I like to have dog friends, as long as they are medium or larger. I do not do well with cats or small animals, so a house without them would be great. I weigh 82 lbs, I am house trained and crate trained. I relax in my crate while my people sleep, or are away at work since they have cats, otherwise I am perfectly happy sleeping on my dogbed in your room, or even in the bed with you. I LOVE kids 5yo and up, I follow them around to house to keep them company, and make sure they are safe. I sometimes will get on the couch, but usually I prefer just to sit on my dog bed, or on the floor by your feet. I protect my family so will watch out for strangers, not let strange dogs get too close. I walk well on a leash using an easy walk harness, and I like rides in the car. I have been given all of my shots including a lepto vaccine, I have been microchipped, and spayed. I listen very well and am eager to please. Please come see me at an adoption event, I hope to find my forever home soon! You can contact my foster dad pete@pawsforlifenc.org with any questions. Adoption fee $125 - Lower than normal as I am sponsored by a donor who cannot adopt me, but wants to see me get a great home. Applications can be filled out at pawsforlifenc.org   show less

Don’t cheat yourself, treat yourself … to a life of love with me!  I am a 6-months-young sleek, sophisticated, happy-go-lucky girl who knows how to have fun.  In true Miss Congeniality fashion, I seek to be friends with every person and dog I meet!  I am an extreme dog-lover and will need to have one or two doggie siblings to run and play with by day.  By night, my favorite spot is by your side on the couch or snuggling in the bed.  When it comes to toys, I’m pretty easy to please.  Rope toy for tug-of-war … ready when you are!  Stuffed toy ready for de-stuffing … bring it!  Stick or ball for chasing … it’s on!  If toys are not available, I know how to make my own fun with my sit n’ spin technique for tail-chasing.  Chewing is a favorite pastime too, with pig ears and bully sticks at the top of my list. (If those are in short supply, I can get creative … just sayin’.)    I’m a good leash-walker, so don’t hesitate to take me for walks or hikes.   I also happen to be a skilled front seat passenger – like I’m talking pro-level riding here – so taking me along on road trips to the lake, beach or mountain is highly preferred!     Cats are a wildcard for me.  I’ve met them and sniffed them and even play bowed to them … but when they run, I just can’t stop myself from chasing them.  I’m a sensitive girl that will jump at strange noises, so if one of these cat creatures beat me up, I would probably leave them alone or at least learn how to co-exist … but until this circumstance arises, I won’t know for sure.     I am crate trained, house trained, and know how to sit on command.  I’m working on a few more skills, but in the spirit of intrigue, I’ll keep them to myself for now.  Overall, I’m super sweet, friendly, fairly gentle, and can adapt to almost any positive environment.    Being around me is sure to make you smile! My adoption fee is $225.  I am spayed, micro-chipped, and current on all age-appropriate vaccinations and monthly heartworm and flea/tick preventives.    You can apply for me at www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less

Milo here! I'm originally from Jersey - how you doin'?!?? I'm a tri-color Shepherd mix, medium energy, six years old, and I weigh 64 lbs, My birthday is about 7/19/2012 I'm also crazy good-looking, but I'm sure you've noticed that already! My previous owners love me a lot and did not want to give me up. But they had to move back in with family and were not allowed to bring their pets. So now you have a chance to adopt me! I'm a fairly mellow dog, but I have plenty of energy. I love me some walks, but need short walks in the summer heat, due to my dark coat. I walk pretty well on a front-attach harness or a Gentle Leader.  I wasn't walked much before, so I can pull a little and be leash reactive to other dogs, but this is improving with the correct harness and some training from my Foster Folks. I'm a World Class snuggler and am extremely affectionate and loving. One of my favorite things in the world is to lay face to face with Foster Mom and gently lick her face while she pets my head. I also adore belly rubs, spooning, hugs, and giving kisses. I live to be loved on! I'm a real character - I give THE worst high fives. I usually miss, and it makes everyone laugh! I'm also a talker, and will "tell" you when I'd like a potty break. If I'm told to stop doing something fun, I will grumble and sulk in protest. If I want your attention, I'll groan and flop myself down dramatically. I also lay on my back with one paw in the air, like I'm waiting to be called on. I'm very funny and will certainly keep you entertained! I'm well house trained, but I have occasional "happy bladder" accidents. It's a small amount, which pretty much only happens when my Foster Folks come home and I get so excited to see them! My Foster Folks handle it by staying very calm when they first arrive, and they take me outside right away.  Since they've been doing that, I no longer have accidents. Because of my bladder issues, I can't stay in a crate all day. I generally need to have potty breaks about every four hours or so, although my Foster Folks have on occasion left me for up to seven hours uncrated in the evening, and I did really well.  I don't mind being in my crate for a few hours, but so long as I have reasonable potty breaks, I've done well being left home uncrated. I'm smart and easy to train, and if Foster Mom really wanted to teach me a proper high five, I could certainly do it. She just thinks it's really funny to see me miss all the time! Because I'm clever, I may or may not have figured out how to open the garbage can once or twice to have a snack. And if you leave food unattended on the coffee table - well, it's as good as gone, my Friend! My Foster Family is vigilant, so this only happened once. I knew I was in trouble and put myself in my crate without being told - it was worth it, haha! I do fine with children, and generally, like attention from them. I can be a little apprehensive of the five-and-under crowd if they are hyper and crowd me, but I still do okay with them. I might knock them over if I'm being silly. I live with a dog and a really mean 19 lb cat, and we all get along just fine, but it did take a few days of training from my Foster Folks. I am sometimes dominant with other dogs, especially if they try to be dominant towards me first. That's fair, right? My Foster Brother is not very dominant, so we got along well after a good introduction. I occasionally chase the cat briefly, but it's fun and is worth the scolding! Because I'm selective about other dogs, I probably wouldn't do well at a dog park. I will occasionally bark at people passing by outside, so an apartment is probably not a good match for me. But I will definitely run off potential intruders 'cos my bark is scary! I destroy all the toys. I have a giant Kong that I am slowly wearing down to nothing. So it's safe to say that I'm a Super Chewer, haha! My Foster Mom trimmed my nails once and I didn't fuss at all, but oddly enough they haven't needed trimming since. They're "self-trimming", and wear themselves out on the pavement during walks! I'm also pretty reasonable during bath time, and my coat doesn't shed so much. So it's pretty easy to keep me looking handsome! I'm neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines and flea and tick meds. I'm all set to go home with you! I'm totally worth my $225 adoption fee. If you have any questions about me please email Foster Mom at OtherTwoThirds@gmail.com. If you would like to adopt me, and want to make sure you are first in line, please fill out an application right away here: http://pawsforlifenc.org/pet-adoptions/dog-adoptions/dog-adoption-form/. It's first come, first served, and you do NOT want to be second in line for this guy! I can't wait to meet you! Love, Milo show less

Sonny, is a male lab mix, is approximately 6 months, still a pup. The first thing you’ll notice about Sonny is his beautiful black fur and blue tick coloring on his chest and front legs.  The second thing you’ll notice about Sonny is his quiet and calm nature.  He’s still pretty shy so he’s not rambunctious or “talkative.”  Sonny’s special talent is convincing people to give him belly rubs.  He even prefers belly rubs over treats.  If Sonny was on a dating app, his pickup line would be “pet me and I’m yours.”  Sonny give other dogs a paws up as long as they don’t bark and whine loudly right by him; that makes him want to chill in a quiet place.  Sonny has been well behaved with the foster mom’s cat ~ even when the cat hissed at him he just scooted away.  We don’t know a lot about Sonny’s life as a stray pup, we can tell you that he has been a top-notch foster dog quickly learning to accept a collar, walk on a leash without pulling, keep his kennel clean, and potty outside.  Sonny’s a smart pup, already learning commands such as kennel, inside, outside, sit, and come.  Sonny will get bored (because he’s so smart!) without someone or something to play with so lots of toys, walks outside, and playtime with his humans or fur siblings will keep him a happy puppy. www.pawsforlifenc.org Adoption fee $250 show less
