Are you looking for an active new friend to spend time with outside this summer? Looking for a hiking or camping buddy? Well look no further! Hi! My name is Andy!! I’m a super cute 6 month old lab/heeler mix rescued from a local high kill shelter. When I was turned into the shelter the people there were told I was a lab/heeler mix but my foster mom says she’s pretty sure I have some other breeds mixed in and it would be really cool to do a DNA test on me to find out. My foster mom says I’m very sweet, a little shy at first but I warm up real quick. She says that I have some really neat markings and that’s what made her pick me! I'm about 30 lbs right now and may get to be about 60 lbs is the best guess. We're still getting to know each other but some things she said to mention is that I like other dogs and would do well with a more experienced dog to show me what’s right and wrong for a puppy to do. I can tell you that I like girl doggies a little bit more than boys, but I have both as foster siblings and we are all doing great together. There are some kitties here that I like to investigate. If I see one hanging around I’ll go up and give it a good sniff to say hi. I love the game of chase when they run but I would never hurt them. My foster mom says that since the kitties don’t run and hide from me that I’ll do fine living with one, as long as they don’t mind some puppy breath. I’m learning to play with toys. I was a little unsure what to do with them at first, but now I’ve become an expert toy hoarder. I like playing with all kinds of ropes, Kongs, stuffed, and balls! Sometimes I’ll even through the toy myself just so I can chase it. I’m not fully house trained but I’m working on it. I am good in a crate too. Not my favorite thing to get into but I get a treat and that makes it better. I settle down pretty quick too and am quiet all night long. I’m also learning to walk on a leash. Not quite sure where I’m supposed to be so kind of walk all over the place but my foster mom says that with practice and proper training I'll be a pro in no time! I’m up to date with all my shots, microchipped, on flea and heartworm preventative and will be neutered soon so I’ll be ready for my new home any day now! If you think I may be the perfect addition to your family go to pawsforlifenc.org and fill out an application today! 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

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

Hi there! My name is Hazel and I am a sweet and petite pit bull mix who is looking for her forever home! I am approximately a year old and weigh about 30 pounds, so I am the perfect medium sized girl. When Paws for Life rescued me, I was pretty sick with demodex mange (don’t worry, it isn’t contagious), internal parasites, and a wound on my belly. With a little love, special baths, and medication, I am almost good as new again. My skin feels so much better and soon I will have all of my fur back!!! I have quickly settled into my foster home and get along well with the other dogs that live there. I also am good with the children in my foster home (ages 10 and 6), but I sometimes have to be reminded not to jump on them when I get excited. It is probably best if I go to a house without cats, as I tend to chase them and want to play too rough. I love to play with all toys, including ones with squeakers, rope toys, and Kongs; however, my favorite activity is snuggling with my family members. I enjoy ear scratches, belly rubs, and I love to give kisses. I am starting to learn my manners and I will sit when asked to do so, especially if I get rewarded with a yummy snack. I walk pretty well on a leash, but sometimes am a little nervous in new situations so my new owner will need to help me learn to be confident when walking. I am still working on my house training and will go potty when taken outside, but sometimes I forget to let my foster family know when I need to go. They think it is best for me to be taken out frequently so I don’t have accidents. I am crate trained and spend the day in my crate while my foster family is away. I usually go right in and haven’t had any accidents in my crate since the first couple of days when I was rescued. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. In addition, I am also up to date on both flea/tick and heartworm preventative. If you have any questions about me, please email my foster mom and katie@pawsforlifenc.org. show less

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

I’m Mia, a 7.5-month-old Shepherd mix and currently weigh ~40 lbs. I have a slender build and very soft, thick, feathery fur and a bushy tail that curls over my back. With my coloring and tail, mom actually suspects I also have some Akita and Golden Retriever mixed in somewhere. I am a very, very shy girl. I am working hard on being more trusting and getting comfortable with being loved on. I always run and hide in my crate when my foster mom tries to pet me, but she moves slowly and gently to reassure me that her touch will be kind. I have slowly discovered that ear and butt scratches feel good and just opened up to the idea of belly rubs. Maybe one day I’ll be a snuggler, but it will take time and patience. I love all kinds of toys, but squeaky toys are my all-time favorite. Empty water bottles are also fascinating. A good chew toy like a bully stick will not be turned down either! I am typically a quiet girl, but mom says I make a great watchdog because I will bark when I hear an unfamiliar sound or see an unfamiliar person. I’m not overbearing with my barking though and will settle down pretty quick. I have only been in my foster home for a short time, so I am not yet house-trained. I guess you could say I’m a work in progress. I am extremely fearful of leashes and will freeze up and shiver/shake when I have one on, but we are working on that too. I do LOVE to run in wide open spaces, so a nice fenced yard would be good for me … but until I learn to trust you, catching me can be a bit of a challenge. My foster mom keeps my leash on while I’m running around. She says it makes it easier to catch me and helps me get used to having one on. I am currently fostered with my sibling, Gia. We get along VERY well and can even eat out of the same food bowl at the same time. I just met the resident dog in my foster home. I love her so much. She is extremely dog-friendly and I LOVE playing with her. She’s confident and helps me be more confident too—just the kind of dog sibling I need. I have not yet been tested with cats, so more to come on this. My fear of fast movement and loud or unfamiliar noises requires me to be in a home with older kids (12 & up) who know who to approach a dog and can be gentle and patient with me. I will need an experienced dog owner and a family willing to invest in professional dog training. With a little time, patience and love, I will blossom into a confident girl. If you are intrested in me you can email my foster mom at carla@pawsforlifenc.org OR fill out an application at www.pawsforlifenc.org show less
