My name is Bowman and I am a very special 2-year-old mutt! My family loves me very very much, but I do not like their other dog or new house and need an environment where I can thrive. I have a few food allergies and am very picky about who I feel comfortable with, but don't let that deter you! I am very snuggly with my people and love to give kisses, almost as much as I love to go swimming and play fetch! I make an excellent running buddy in cool weather, love showing off my tricks, and will keep you laughing with my personality. I love to sleep under blankets and make nests for myself when you aren't around to lift up a blanket for me. I love to be with my people and am very loyal. Did I mention I love to fetch? In case you forget, I'll give you my ball or nudge it to you. Fetch is my absolute favorite. I take scolding very seriously and will find someplace to hide when I know you are unhappy, so please be gentle with me. All I want to do is make you happy so I can snuggle up in your lap when you Netflix and chill. As long as you love me, I will love you with everything I have to offer. I am up to date on my veterinary care, potty trained, leash trained, and looking for the perfect pet free, child free home (apartment complexes scare me) that can accomodate my needs. As my mommy always says, when I can be the center of attention I am the perfect gentleman. So what do you say? Can I be your little spoon for ever and always? show less

I'm Chewbacca, but my foster family calls me Chewy most of the time. I'm 5 years old, which shocked my fosters because I have a lot of pep. I love to take walks and be with my people. I am about 50 pounds and have no food aggression whatsoever (my fosters always say that impresses them). I live with 7 kids and they love me. If there is ever a day I don't want to have them all over me, I will never show it, even when it's the 2-year-old giving me big hugs! I am potty trained and can hold it for a long time. I know basic commands (sit and paw) and I will work for food. I hate that I have some anxiety and I am working on it. If I'm with my people, you'll never know. I just struggle when I am left for long periods of time. I have always done fine when my fosters go out (even for many hours at a time), but they are home a good bit of the time so it's never for long periods of time day after day. I am dog-friendly, cat-friendly, and very kid friendly. I am up to date on shots, flea/tick, and heartworm prevention. I can't wait to find a forever family because I have lots of love and cuddles to give and I would be a fantastic companion. http://www.pawsforlifenc.org/ Adoption fee is $225 show less

Hi there! My name is Daisy and I am a three-year-old American pit bull terrier mix. I was surrendered to the shelter in pretty bad shape- severely underweight with frostbite on my ears and toenails that badly needed to be trimmed at the beginning of the year. I am so happy that Paws for Life had a foster home where I could gain weight and get ready for my forever family! I am a super lovable girl who likes to cuddle and get belly rubs. I am good with children and love it when the little ones in my foster home play with me. I really love to play with any kind of dog toys, from stuffed squeaky ones to rope toys. It would be best if my new home had a few I could call my own. I am dog-friendly and love to run and play with the other dogs in my foster home. My foster mom is not sure if I would do good in a house with little dogs, so I would need to be introduced first to make sure I don’t play too rough. I passed the cat test at the shelter, but I get a little too excited and sometimes too rough with the kitties here at my foster home. I tend to chase them, so my foster mom thinks it would be best if my forever home doesn’t have cats. I am house trained and crate trained. I do know a few basic commands such as sit, shake, and lay down. I also know how to fetch! I walk pretty well on a leash and don’t pull too hard. I am up to date on all of my vaccines, as well as flea/tick and heartworm preventative. In a couple of weeks I will be spayed and ready to go to my forever home. If you have any questions about me, please email my foster mom Katie at katie@pawsforlifenc.org. show less

Hi! I am Goldilocks. I am a 6yo German Shepherd mix, those mean bears would not share their porridge I was only 40 pounds when rescued by Paws for Life NC. I now have my own comfy bed to sleep in with my foster family, and get regular meals. I have gained 35lbs! and now weigh 75lbs, 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 at the foot of the bed. I get along great with most dogs. 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 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. I need a home without cats, small animals/rodents they look like food to me. 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. Thanks to a grant from Maddies Fund my Adoption fee is only $75 Applications can be filled out at pawsforlifenc.org show less

He is a sweet, petite, friendly fellow with silly ears. He was also pulled from the Franklin County shelter. Gunther is a spunky little guy at just 40 pounds and 2-ish he likes to play but seems to have a good read on the dogs around him. If he's with a playful pup he will tumble and play, if he's with an older reserved dog, he will relax with them. Very dog friendly, does not seem to bother with the cats but I think if they ran he would chase. He is eager to please, loves affection and learning what it is to be a warm and cozy inside doggie. Sadly Gunther, like so many dogs in the south, is Heartworm Positive. This is caused by a single bite from an infected mosquito! Once he has put on a little weight he will go through Heartworm treatment. It is no walk in the park and a simple, inexpensive pill each month would have protected little Gunther. He is not bad on a leash, pulls just a bit but is easy to handle. We are working on potty training and my dogs are showing him the ropes. If you are looking to add to your pack or know someone who is share this boy! He would even do well in an apartment with walks or a community dog park since he is pretty quiet. He is learning the crate and is doing pretty well but honestly, we don't use it much. He is updated on vaccines, on prevention (flea/tick/Heartworm) and microchipped. He will be neutered on Valentines Day and will be ready for his new home shortly thereafter. He can be adopted and still go through the Heartworm treatment at our vet. He would need to be calm after the treatment for the 30 days required while those nasty little worms are killed off. It is crate rest and leash walks so he does not get too excited and raise his heart rate. Get your apps in quickly for this cutie-pie! Gunther adoption fee will be $225 show less

Harvey, the puggle mix, is a special guy. You can just see it in his adorable, crooked smile! He is approximately 3-4 years old and a very happy, outgoing boy. Harvey didn't have the easiest start in life. He came to us with a chronic back injury and overall poor body condition, but he never let that get his spirit down. After a few weeks of cage rest and TLC, we saw great improvement in his back and we will hopefully see continued improvement as time goes on! He is highly food driven and will be easily trainable with yummy treats on hand. Harvey is already crate trained and does great in the house. He would make a great addition to any family however, he has not been around small children. With that being said, we think he would be a superstar with them. Come check out Harvey to see if he could be your new four-legged best friend! show less

Hi, my name is Juliette. I was named after Juliette Low, the founder of the girl scouts. Why?? Because just like her, I am deaf. I can hear really loud noises, but for the most part not much else. My foster mom has been teaching me hand signals and I already know sit! I am a border collie mix and am about 6 months old. My foster mom says I won't get much bigger than 25 pounds so I'm just a great size. I love, love, love people. I can give kisses all day. I love to play with the other dogs in my foster home as well. I have lots of energy!! Sometimes they don't always want to play with me so you know what? I just play by myself. I toss my toys up in the air and then go get them again. Chasing balls are my favorite. I do great in the car and I love to go on walks. My foster mom says I walk great. I don't even pull. I am crate trained and I'm working really hard on my housebreaking. I'm doing good but sometimes I still have some accidents. I will be spayed soon and microchipped too. My foster mom would love if my new home would be familiar with deaf dogs or be willing to work with me on my hand signals. She said I'd also love a fenced yard to run around in. If you have any questions, please email my foster mom, Nancy at nancy@pawsforlifenc.org. She'd love to tell you more about me or fill out an application at www.pawsforlifenc.org.

Hello there! My name is Kylo and I’m looking my forever home! I've heard those are pretty awesome and I can't wait! I'm a hound mix, 2 years old and about 55 pounds. My friends would describe me as goofy, cuddly, handsome (have you seen my eyes?!?) and playful. I love to lounge around and cuddle, play with any and all toys and run around and play outside. As long as my humans are with me I'm happy! I currently live with 3 foster siblings and do very well with them. I do need a little time to get used to new doggy friends but after that I should do just fine! I’d really enjoy having another medium/large dog to play with in my forever home. I live with a cat currently but my foster parents won’t let me play with her. Apparently I’m a little too interested in the cat for it’s safety so it’s not recommend for me to go to a home with a cat. I don’t currently live with children but enjoy when I seem them at adoption events. I am a “leaner” and don’t always realize my size so may do better with older or dog savvy children. I am potty trained and will let you know when I need to go outside. I am also crate trained and stay in my crate during the day while my foster parents are at work. I have learned how to sit and lay, and I’m working on more fun tricks! I’m treat motivated so that should help me learn quickly. I have been neutered and am up to date on all my shots and vaccines. I am heartworm positive but have already gone through treatment and should be better than ever in no time! Do I sound like the pawfect match?? You can email my foster mom at jcoliver@ncsu.edu for more information. Or just go ahead and fill out an application, I won’t be around for long! show less

12.5 year old Max is a total family guy. He is a tan Lab/Shepherd mix, approximately 65 lbs, who loves people of all ages. He is currently being fostered in a home with a cat and another dog. Max is curious about the cat, but never bothers it. He gets along great with the other dog. Max lived 12 years of his life as an inside dog until his owners gave him to their son, who kept Max tied up outside for about a year. Max's foster keeps him inside where he belongs. He is crated when they are not home and does great! Max is also house trained. Max doesn't hear well, so his foster uses hand signals and bribes him with treats. Max is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Max is heartworm positive but his fosters have started him on a slow kill treatment. Max loves to lay around and be petted. He also enjoys short strolls on a leash. He would love a low energy home of his own to live out the rest of his life. Can you open your heart and home to this senior guy? He will show his appreciation for the rest of his life. He is sure to bond completely and deeply with his caretakers, who will be his heroes. Max will surely be an affectionate and loyal companion. Max and his fosters are praying they can find him a great loving home. For more information, please contact Victoria at (919) 710-2738. show less

Hi! My name is Taz. I was born at the end of December so I’m still a growing puppy. My mama was a purebred black Chow and daddy was a black lab. I have a gorgeous, silky black coat that will stay short like my daddy’s so no need for all that grooming and we think I will grow up to be about 55 or 60 pounds. I am sweet and playful. Still teething a little but not destructive at all because I have lots of chew toys. I sleep through the night but will wake you in the morning when it’s time for breakfast. I am trained to a potty training pad. I have also been getting out a lot on my leash to learn leash manners. I can sit on command and I very treat motivated. I get along with other dogs and even got along with one of those cats! As sweet as I am my breed does not usually do well with very young children. A little bit older kids and adults I am great with though. If you rent your home please check with your property manager for breed/size Restrictions before applying for me. To know more about my combination of breeds please go to AKC.com and look them up to make sure I would be a great fit in your family. Are you ready for a goofy, talkative little bundle of love to join your family? Pick me! show less

Yoda is a sweet senior boy who is looking for his forever. At 8 years old he found himself at the local shelter when his dad had to go away for a while. Unfortunately, his dad could not come back for him so Paws for Life rescued him to give him another chance at forever. He seems to be fine with other dogs but does want to chase the barn cats in his foster home from time to time. Because of this, we are seeking a cat-free forever home for this gentleman.
