Dog Trivia - did you know there are about 900 million dogs in the world? Is Addie the one in a million, well one in 900 million for you? Look into her golden eyes and you may just drown in the pool of beauty!  She also has a beautiful coat and very pretty markings. Even prettier in person! She loves to rest her head on your shoulders and get hugs. Addie is a sweet and loveable girl!! She loves her people and bonds quickly with whoever showers her with love!!! Addie is making furry friends and enjoying some outdoor romp around time. Check out her playful video and all the fun she is having with her 4-legged pal! Her new parents should continue to be patient and work with her and her interactions with pup pals. We would call her a medium energy dog, and she would prefer a fenced in yard to run around in. Kids would be fine as long as they are older.  The little ones she may be too big for and wouldn't want to accidently knock a wee-one over.  Addie will also skip a home with kitties; they are just too fun to try and catch. She is house trained!  She will go in her crate but prefers to be out with someone who is home. She makes a great companion for anyone working from home! She is very smart and is doing well learning her commands. Conitnuing her positive reinforcement training is always important for anyone who adopts a dog as it continues to build their confidence. Addie is a four year old, 55lb, female Beagle/Boxer/Hound mix and is one of our longest forsters.  She would love for her family to find her and give her her forever home!  As part of her $250 adoption fee, she is spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccines, and monthly flea/tick and heart worm preventatives.  If you have questions, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Addie, you can fill in an online application for her here:  http://pawsforlifenc.org/pet-adoptions/apply-for-adoption/. show less

Sweet and friendly with a bit shy and gentle personality.  Even though Allie is less than a year old, she does not behave like a typical puppy.  She is already good on a leash, calm at the vet and loves to be with her humans.  She is good with children and has a couple in her foster home.  She is a happy and affectionate girl that loves belly rubs and attention. Allie won't require a fenced yard, so if you don't have one and will commit to nice long walks each day, that will be great for Allie. If you do have a fenced yard and kids and other pups to play with, Allie would be a good fit in that family as well!!  She enjoys playing with her 2 foster furry siblings, too.  Allie does not like to be left outside by herself as that's boring. She wants to be around her people. Allie already knows "SIT", "PAW" and comes when called.  She is food motivated and easy to train.  She wants to please and loves positive priase and affection.  Watch her "SIT" video...isn't she adorable? She has had several experiences riding in the car and is well behaved.  She has gotten along with all other dogs she has met.  She does love to toss the stuffy toys around and LOVES to chew on a hard bone.  So people or pups; she is a good playmate.  She does get nervous with new people but quickly warms up. She is a 7 month-old, 46lb female Shepherd mix.  All is still a little mouthy/nippy, and is a typical puppy with some puppy behaviors (randomly grabbing a shoe/kids toy) and does some very gentle mouthing but is easily redirected. Allie sleeps in the crate.  She loves her daily walks and typcially goes outside 3-5 per day which ensures her house breaking routine. When working from home, she is out and about in the house but usually lays around or plays with the other dogs for a bit. If we are working in the office, then she is crated and does just fine. As part of Allie's $250 adoption fee, she is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. If you have questions about this sweet girl, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Allie, you can fill in an online application for her under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less

I’m full of energy, and I will make someone a great active companion for hiking and other fun outdoor activities! I absolutely LOVE to ride in the car and go on adventures. My foster mom says I do the cutesiest little chatter when I’m really excited. I’m still young, so I still have lots to learn!  And I really like positive reinforcement training and learning new things - I am quick study but like any puppy need continued practice. My ideal home would be one with a fenced in yard for me to burn off some steam. I would benefit greatly by having another playful medium-large dog in the house, or going to doggie day care!  Aspen is best suited to an experienced person, someone to keep her busy and continue her training! She had some resource guarding as a small puppy so continued training would be perfect for her! She will not be adopted into a home with children. She is currently living with a cat, who is very submissive with dogs, but she does fixate on him. So either a home with no cats or a cat willing to stand their ground would be best. (DOB 2/20/21)  As part of Aspen's $275 adoption fee, she is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. If you have questions about this sweet girl, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Aspen, you can fill in an online application for her under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org show less

(DOB 08/05/2021) Due to Brownie’s young age, she has not yet been spayed.  For this reason, we are only considering local placement (within 1 hour drive time of Wake Forest NC).  Brownie is a bashful little girl with a beautiful face and a heart full of love.  She loves being with people and being held and getting belly rubs, but she is shy in asking for your attention.   Once this submissive girl finds her courage, she showers you with kisses and tail wags. Brownie loves to run and play with her sisters, but she is the first one to go off on her own and explore or just go take a play break.   A securely fenced yard for her is a BIG plus.  If there is no fence, she will need an active family committed to taking her for multiple walks a day to get her energy out.  Additionally, she really loves playing with other dogs and will need to be adopted to a family with at least one other PLAYFUL dog to help get her energy out and show her how to “dog.”   In her puppy excitement, she is very mouthy/nippy. Due to this, she is looking for a home with kids 10 and older. In a nutshell, she is a typical puppy in that she loves to play, play, play with toys, people and other pups. She will need a family ready to take on the puppy stages and keep her both entertained and using positive reinforcement training to build her social skills and boundaries. She is just now starting her house training and leash skills.  As part of Brownie's $275 adoption fee, she will be spayed, microchipped, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. In addition to the adoption fee, a $100 spay/neuter deposit is due at the time of adoption.  The deposit will be refunded once the puppy has been altered. If you have questions about this sweet little girl, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Brownie, you can fill in an online application for her under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less

Chance is looking for love locally, so within 1 hour of Wake Forest, NC.  Chance loves every person he meets and gives you a big smile. He is very social, a social butterfly in fact...loves adults and kids alike.  He is house trained, crate trained and loves a good road trip.  As an older boy he is a bit set in his ways and likes spending time only with female dogs or submissive ones.  Chance would be perfect as an only dog.  He loves attention, snuggling, belly rubs and affection.  He does LOVE being with his humans. He is an 8-year-old, 25lb male Jack Russell mix.  You wouldn't guess Chance is 8 years old as he has a lot of engergy to burn. He needs the ability to run and play to burn excess energy.  He doesn't require a fence; however, does require family that is active and will take him on walks, runs and pelnty of play time.  While on walks, he enjoys taking time "to smell the roses" - sniffing around is a lot of fun.  Chance is still working on his leash manners and will need someone willing to continue his positive practice. As part of Chance's $250 adoption fee, he is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.  If you have questions about this sweet boy, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Chance, you can fill in an online application for him under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less

(DOB 5/14/21) Due to Coby’s young age, he has not yet been neutered.  For this reason, we are only considering local placement (within 1 hour drive time of Wake Forest NC).   As a young 24 lb hound mix, Coby is a smart spunky guy. His sauntering swagger is endearing and just oozes cuteness. He is all boy and is a little bit country and a little bit sporty.  He is always on the move and looking for every opportunity to play, play, play.  He loves toys, and the bigger the toy, the better it is.  He shares toys easily with his sister, but they do like to steal toys from each other to entice a game of chase.   He learned the sit command quickly--he is very food motivated, so training does come easy.  He rarely sits still but he loves attention and will often rollover for belly rubs before dashing off on his next adventure.  He gets his protective bark on when he hears or sees someone or something he isn't familiar with. It’s an endearing trademark but doesn’t make him a good apartment dog. Besides, he has soooo much energy that he needs a yard to open up in and run his zoomies.  Another playful dog in his home is a must to keep him and you both happy.  He does best with female dogs. If no fenced yard, he needs an active family that is committed to walking him regularly. Too much idle time will lead to mischief. No cats for this guy either, they bring out his warrior spirit. He is in the process of losing his puppy teeth so chewing is a prime time activity.  Everything goes in his mouth—fingers, toes, nose—and play mouthing and nipping is constant, so he is looking for a home with kids 10 and older.    He is working hard on his potty training. He actually prefers to go outside, but he doesn't yet know how to signal when he need to go out.  Good news is that he is very good about going on the puppy pad inside.  He took to the leash quickly but he will need to continue his leash training.    Puppies need a lifetime commitment, so if you are ready to take that next step, fill out an application for Coby!  As part of Coby’s $275 adoption fee, he will be neutered, microchipped, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.  In addition to the adoption fee, a $100 spay/neuter deposit is due at the time of adoption.  The deposit will be refunded once the puppy has been altered.  If you have questions about this puppy, you can email dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt him, you can fill in an online application for him under his adoption profile on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less

(DOB 5/14/21)  Due to Cricket’s young age, she has not yet been spayed.  She is also waiting on ortho surgery.  For these reasons, we are only considering local placement (within 1 hour drive time of Wake Forest NC).   As a hound/terrier mix, Cricket is a sweet, smart spunky girl.  She has a little mousy nose and the cutest ears--one flops over and one stands up. For such a little girl, she sure does live her life large! She doesn't let anything hold her back, not even her bum leg! She zips and hops around so fast on 3 legs already—being a bona-fide tripod will be a breeze for her. She is just waiting for her surgery date. She loves to play chase with her brother, she adores toys and is always happy to greet her people.  She has soooo much energy that she needs a solid fenced yard to open up in and run her zoomies.  Another playful dog in her home is a must to keep her and you both happy.  If no fenced yard, she needs an active family that is committed to walking her regularly. Too much idle time will lead to mischief. She is a smart cookie too. She is working on her sit command and pretty much has it down, but she is easily distracted and loses focus quickly. She has a cute protective bark when she hears or sees someone or something she isn't familiar with. It’s an endearing trademark but doesn’t make her a good apartment dog.  No cats for this girl either, they bring out her terrier spirit. She is a typical puppy in that she loves to play, play, play with toys, people and other pups. She will need a family ready to take on the puppy stages and keep her both entertained and using positive reinforcement training to build her social skills and boundaries.  She is in the process of losing her puppy teeth so chewing is a prime time activity.  Everything goes in her mouth—fingers, toes, nose—and play mouthing and nipping is constant, so she is looking for a home with kids 10 and older.  It also calls for you to keep your toys, shoes and cords out of her reach.   She is working hard on her potty training.  She prefers to go outside,  but she hasn't figured out how to signal when she needs to go--we are so close. The good news is that she is very good about going on the puppy pad indoors, but sometimes her aim is slightly off.  She has taken to the leash very easily, but she will still need to the leash training in her future.  All of these things are part of the fun pieces of having a puppy and helping them learn. Are you prepared for all the joy a puppy can bring as well as the dedication to give them the attention they deserve?  Then fill out an application. As part of Cricket’s $275 adoption fee, she will be spayed, microchipped, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.  In addition to the adoption fee, a $100 spay/neuter deposit is due at the time of adoption.  The deposit will be refunded once the puppy has been altered.  If you have questions about this puppy, you can email dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt her, you can fill in an online application for her under adoption profile on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less

Destiny has a big, happy infectious personality. You meet her; you love her! She is all smiles, wiggles and just absolutely makes you smile! Did someone say POOL PARTTYYY?!?! Can you guess what Destiny's favorite summer activity is?  If playing in the pool is one of your family favorite past-times, you must meet Destiny.  She loves kids and other dogs so everyone can jump in together! Destiny is waiting for her forever mommy or daddy to show up and give her the kind of home and love she deserves. First, look at all her fun pictures. Have you ever seen such soulful, beautiful eyes? And coat – pure velvet!   Destiny says, "I'm almost 3 years old and I’ve learned all kinds of new things. My foster mommy says I’m an angel and I hear her tell her friends that I’m smart, catch on very fast, and listen to her really well. She loves me extra-special ‘cause I’m sweet and love to snuggle and play with her and the other dogs she has.  I get along with other dogs, big ones and little ones, plus I never potty in the house and go in/out of my crate when asked to. I am the best walking buddy you'll ever have – I don’t pull on my leash and I’ve learned to sit down when we stop for anything. I’ve learned to sit when mommy says and am learning to stay and recall. I’m very friendly too, and love to meet and play with kids and big people – everybody really. I love to play with cats, too, but they don’t like me so much – guess I’m bigger than they are and scare them, but I never growl at them – I just love to play! I’m about 64 lbs., mommy thinks this is the size I’ll stay – perfect, of course! I have very strong opinions on the proper habitat for my gorgeous self which involve a fenced yard for me to play in with another fur sibling, preferably about my same size or a little bigger and same energy level, an active mommy/daddy/family who will take me on walks and car rides and play with me, lots of tough toys, chew toys/bones, luxurious accommodations like your bed for me to sleep in, and a warm spot like your knee for me to rest my head and get snuggles and hugs every night. I love kids and do well with them when they are older so any kids 8 and up would be perfect playmates. (BTW, even though I like to sleep on the bed with my humans, I do great in my crate, too, as long as it’s comfortable.) I want a mommy or daddy of my own and would love a family, along with another dog to play with!! I also need a fenced back yard to really get my play on. Are you my forever mommy or daddy? If you think you might be, reach out to the good folks at Paws for life and you can talk to my foster mom to learn more about me, maybe meet me, so we can find out." My adoption fee is $250.  I am spayed, micro-chipped, and current on all age-appropriate vaccinations and monthly heartworm and flea/tick preventives.

Never have a bad day with Donnie's big, happy, infectious love in your life. Donnie is a big snuggle bug. If you need a kiss; Donnie can help! He loves his people and showering them with affection! He is so happy all of the time that his little Boxer-nub of a tail goes a mile a minute and makes his whole hind-end wiggle, wiggle, wiggle!  Missing his front leg only makes it easier to get closer to his people.  He does not let it slow him down.  AT.  ALL!  He loves playing with his foster family's dog and he will rumpus, run, and play with toys.  He wants to be wherever his people are.  He likes to go for walks but is just as happy spending time at home.  With 3 legs a little walk goes a long way for him.   He will let you know when it is breakfast and dinner time.  He is a respectful eater and very treat motivated for training.  Donnie is a big boy but has done great with his foster siblings.  He was even a home with a tiny Yorkie and was so good.  He will probably need to be in a home with dog savvy kids, just based on his size and lack of care for personal space.  He neeeeeds to love you, immediately, without care of who or what he has to go over, through, or by! He does fine while home alone and is not crate trained from what we can tell. He is very smart and is doing well learning his commands. He would love a home where he could get snuggles and hugs and kisses all day, walks and a nice fenced back yard! Meet Donnie!  He is a 2-year-old, 65lb male Boxer mix. As part of Donnie's $250 adoption fee, he is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. If you have questions about this sweet boy, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Donnie, you can fill in an online application for him under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org show less

Watch me catch treats in the air!  Dusty's other great trick is looking serious yet being the total SWEATHEART!   What is your trick? He's great with other dogs, big or small plus he loves the kiddos!! Still a little bit rambunctious so bigger kids may be better.  Dusty is learning basic manners quickly and is smart/treat motivated. Check out his video while he SITS, CATCHES and do so with another pup right next time.  What a fab-u-lous boy! Dusty is not a barker, so would fit into any size home or apartment life.... as long as there is lots of love!!  When left out of the crate, he very good and just lays down.  He does not get into anything!  Dusty is also great riding in the car.  So with all of his other great personality traits, he would be an awesome pup to take on adventures.  He would be great a destination dog - where you go; he goes too!  Like hitting the greenways & parks, restaurants or breweries, etc. with outdoor seating, Dusty would love to go with you and meet your friends. As part of Dusty's $250 adoption fee, he is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.

Jeorge loves walking his human siblings to school each morning; he would love a similar routine in his new home. Jeorge also lives with 2 female dogs and foster puppies, so he is learning a lot about socialization and living in a fun household.  He is on the shyer side, so an adopter willing to continue to take him for walks, introduce him to new people and new things is great way for him to socialize and continue to build his confidence. His ideal family would be one that would shower him with love, be patient and have lots of toys to play.  That said, he really only likes the ladies, so let's skip male dogs for Jeorge. He could be an only pup but having a sister sibling would likely be best. As far as cats go, we aren't sure yet as he hasn't had an opportunity to meet a kittie. Do you spend time in the car and want a traveling companion that won't "bark" orders on how to drive? Jeorge loves the car and is a road trip fanatic!  When not road trippin', Jeorge loves the outdoors. Jeorge is living w/a foster family that has 3 small kids and is well behaved around them. Jeorge is fine around strangers, but is still a bit shy/timid until they get to know new people.  Jeorge could be a good fit for apartment living as long as his new family makes sure he gets appropriate exercise, playtime, and walks.  He really does love being outside so make sure you take that into consideration. He loves the fenced yard of his fosters home and will spend hours outside enjoying nature. If you have a fence with 4-5 ft, that would be cool for Jeorge. As a sweet foster boy, Jeorge is playful, loves squeaker, soft & chew toys. He is food/treat motivated so learning new commands or tricks would be a great way to continue to build your relationship with Jeorge.  He is already crate trained and sleeps in his crate. Jorge is also a great "work from home compainion." He patiently sits in his kennel in the office and is so quiet when his human dad is working. He also loves a "foot massage" - check out his video and see if makes you chuckle a little! He is a 1.5-year-old, 35lb male Lab mix.  He is new to our rescue - we will update his bio as we learn more about this wonderful guy! As part of Jeorge's $250 adoption fee, he is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. If you have questions about this sweet boy, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Jeorge, you can fill in an online application for him under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less

Someone that would play with her would be awesome...she loves squeaker toys, chew toys, stuffed toys, and shares toys easily.  She enjoys a fun game of tug-o-war. She is smart and obedient. Since she is food/treat motivated ongoing training will be great for Lucy.  She enjoys going for walks and walks nicely on a leash. Lucy already knows sit, stay, and come. She doens't know "kiss" yet but maybe you can teach her? She is easily redirected and listens well.  She is a pretty quiet, loyal and independent. She takes medications easily and has no food aggressions.  Though she doesn't "love" bath time, she is well behaved.  Plus all that drying off and rubbing down afterwards has got to feel goooood!

Meet this sweet, clumsy, goofy pup…I give you Manny!  BIG boy of 75 pounds with the most beautiful expressive eyes that matched the color of his coat. He loves to play and tussle with other dogs in the house. Manny would also love a fenced yard to run and play in!  He is learning that toys are fun, but he is often funny and uncoordinated trying to play with them…which is hilarious to watch. He is coming out of his shell more and more.  Manny has a fenced yard and he enjoys spending time in it; with his size a 5ft+ is needed.  He knows to potty outside and will need a family to take him out regular to continue his routine. He also enjoys laying outside on our deck just relaxing or watching the squirrels play. Manny would do well in a home where he has at least one other doggie playmate. I’m sure he would be fine with kids, but due to his sheer size I would not suggest small children (he doesn’t know his size and power so I have to be careful when he plays with Mr. Beans). He gets excited and paws and could unintentionally hurt him. He has not been tested with cats. Some things for Manny are still new and he is cautious. He is a diamond in the rough and will make an excellent companion for the person who can give him love and continue training and exposing him to new and unique situations while providing positive reinforcement. Curiously though he does fine when you sweep or run the vacuum cleaner. Do you have a large couch?  Love to see positive transformation? Like to be active, but then curl up on that big couch for a nice nap? If so…Mr. Manny could be just the big boy for you  Fill out an adoption application today at pawsforlifenc.org. And message me with any questions.  It will take patience and a lot of training but will definitely be worth the effort!! show less

Do you have a lot of energy?  Well, so does Marshmallow!  She would make an awesome running partner.  She is is spirited, sparkly and spunky!  If you describe yourself similarly, then this girl may be your paw-fect match! This girl is smart and listens well.  In the short time she has been in foster care, she already knows "Look", "Sit" and learning "Down".  She is learning loose leash walking but is easily distracted like kids running, squirels scurring, and she wants to run with them.  She is still learning to not pull on a leash but will need continued practice.  She is strong, so her adopter will need to work with her for consistency. Marshmallow has enjoyed playtime at doggie day care and loves to chase and run around.  She is going to need a 6+foot solid fence to have a place to burn off energy. She is very sweet and likes to snuggle up next to you as well.  She will give you kisses but isn't "in your face."  Older kids would be ok because of her size and enegry she may accidently knock over little ones. She is a 5-year-old, 57lb female Shepherd mix.  Marshmallow has dewclaws so maybe she has some Great Pyrenees mixed in?  She has the best ears that stand at attention when she is focused on something.  The backs of them have cute black spots and it gives her some pizzazz! She is new to our rescue - we will update her bio as we learn more about this wonderful girl! As part of Marshmallow's $250 adoption fee, she is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.  Marshmallow is heartworm positive.  If you have questions about this sweet girl, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Marshmallow, you can fill in an online application for her under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less

Beautiful brindle boy!  I like snuggling and playing with my foster siblings. I would need a home with a dog sibling to play with. I’m good with other dogs, and I like the company of another dog. I am also good with cats.  Foster Dad calls me Murphy Clown because I’m goofy, and I make silly faces. My favorite face is where my tongue hangs out of the side of my mouth. My tongue has dark spots so it looks like I ate an ink pen. I’m grown but my Foster Mom keeps telling me I still need to learn to be a big dog. She thinks I act like a puppy. I know how to sit, wait and walk on a leash. I just have to be reminded not to jump on people when they come home. You see I get excited and sometimes forget. That is why I would be best off in a home where the kids are old enough to help remind me and not get mad when I forget. I’m trying but sometimes I get too excited then I’m all puppy in a grown dog’s body. I like to go on walks and I am great on a leash. I can get scared when the crazy loud trucks go by so I need to be reassured that the noisy thing will not get me. I’m also a little timid around some men. I warm up to them but my Dad will have to be understanding that some men just scare me. I totally love the ladies. Stranger or long time friend, I love them all as long as they are ladies. I’m fully house trained and I know how to use a doggie door. I have never had an accident in my foster home. I don’t even have to stay in a kennel when the humans are gone. I like to sleep in a dog bed and snuggle next to my Foster Parents. If you would like to love me forever and be loved forever please apply to be my family. My favorite time of the day is meal time! I’m a great eater. Who doesn't love a tasty meal?? He is about a year and a half old and has beautiful brindle markings. As part of Murphy's $250 adoption fee, he is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. If you have questions about this sweet boy, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Murphy, you can fill in an online application for him under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less

(DOB 7/20/2021) Due to Paddington’s young age, he has not yet been neutered.  For this reason, we are only considering local placement (within 1 hour drive time of Wake Forest NC).  Additionally, for socialization purposes, he is looking for a home with another gentle dog.   This little 10 lb terrier mix is as cute as a button.  He loves being around his people and he is super spunky and playful.   He is always on the move and looking for every opportunity to play, play, play.  As a puppy, chewing is a prime-time activity for him.  Everything goes in his mouth—fingers, toes, nose—and play mouthing and nipping is constant, so he is looking for a home with kids 10 and older.    Due to Paddington's petite size small children will not be a great fit for him.  He will be good with older kids/teenagers due to size/energy/playfulness.  He has a lot of puppy engery to burn off so a family that will run and play with him outside will be great.  He also likes playing with toys and a good ole game of tug-o-war.  He might be little but he believes he is mighty man!  A fenced yard isn't required but he loves to run around so it would be a bonus.  A fence would have to be solid due to his size.   We think Paddington would be a great agility pup.  Have you ever tried that kind of positive training?  It is so much fun for you and your dog.  He is very smart and loves to learn. He is food motivated so ongoing training will be perfect for Paddington.  He has endless energy and smarts to boot! He just got his second puppy shot and is now able to go outside, so he is just starting his potty training.  He is very good about going on the puppy pad. He is crate trained but will have accidents if not pottied often enough.  This goes for crate training as well; these are work in progress since he is still a puppy.  Another puppy piece are the treat puzzles that help entertain his body and mind and help keep him out of mischief. As part of Paddington’s $275 adoption fee, he will be neutered, microchipped, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.  In addition to the adoption fee, a $100 spay/neuter deposit is due at the time of adoption.  The deposit will be refunded once the puppy has been altered.  If you have questions about this puppy, you can email dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt him, you can fill in an online application for him under his adoption profile on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less

Patches is also a good companion in the car and well behaved. Wanna grab a coffe and a Pup-o-chino or ice cream, Patches is happy to join you!

This girl is super sweet with a very playful, fun personality.   She can be shy at first but warms up quickly. Once she does, she’s so very sweet and loves to cuddle.  Miss Sadie is good with other dogs with proper introduction and with kids! She would do best with another high energy dog.  She would also be ok with dog savvy cats.  She loves to take care rides, especially when it involves a pup cup from Dairy Queen!  She is also an adorable little fashionista who likes to mix it up between being a girly-girl or tomboy, sporty or just your girl next door.  She is one smart pup too! She is working on house training, she is good on leash and listens well to commands like sit, stay and off.  She looks forward to a family that will continue to work with her on positive reinforcement basic training.  This girl is ready for a forever home and someone to love and call her family. Is it you?  She is a 2-year-old, 46lb female Pit/Beagle Terrier mix.  As part of Sadie's $250 adoption fee, she is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. If you have questions about this sweet girl, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Sadie, you can fill in an online application for her under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org show less

Sky's personality lights up any place; maybe because she has the best facial expressions, wrinkling brow, doggie eyes and/or will daintly crossher paws!  She can lay it on thick and beleive me, you will fall for it!  She is a super sweet girl that everyone is just falling in love with!  She knows NO stranger!  She finds friends wherever she goes. She has been out and about and has enjoyed her car rides...sitting up on the way there and falling asleep in the backseat on the way home. She will make an excellent partner if you like to hit dog friendly places!  Just know, Sky may steal the show and get a lot more attention than you...ha ha! Kids, other dogs, and cats - Sky is friendly with all.  She lives with 4 dogs and 3 cats in her foster home.  Becuase of her size, exubuerent and happy personality, she may accidently knock over little ones so older children are likely best.  Her personality is such that she could be an only dog or have furry sibilings. Though Sky could be an only dog with her young age plus she loves playing with her furry siblings play group so another dog(s) would be best suited for Sky. Sky is a great little snuggler as well.  She loves affection and a good belly rub!  She enjoys time snuggling on the couch with you as well.  Having a bad day or moment, let Sky help you feel better quickly!  Sky would do best with a family that has a flexible work schedule or work from home and is home/not gone the majority of the day. She is a 9 month-old, 47lb female Pit mix and is already house trained and crate trained.  Sky has never had an accident and will go into her crate when the door is open to relax or sleep. She walks nicely on a leash as well.  Still very much puppy but already well on her way to being a well behaved doggo-o!  She needs a nice fenced yard (4ft-5ft) to run around and play in; she still has a lot of puppy energy to burn off.  Sky is used to being able to come and go through the dog doors and lets herself out when she has to potty.  The ideal home for Sky would be with someone/couple/family that has a flexible/remote work schedule, a fenced in yard, and at least one sibling.  An apartment would not be the best fit for Sky. As a puppy, Sky loves squeaker toys, chew toys, stuffed toys -- well any toys!  She loves to play so someone who wants to spend time "plaiyin' around", playing tug-o-war, or running around with  Sky would be great! As part of Sky's $250 adoption fee, she is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. Sky is heartworm negative.  If you have questions about this sweet girl, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Sky, you can fill in an online application for her under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less

(DOB 08/05/2021) Due to S’mores' young age, she has not yet been spayed.  For this reason, we are only considering local placement (within 1 hour drive time of Wake Forest NC).  S’mores is a unique and beautiful young girl with one blue eye and one brown eye.   Her momma is a white shepherd mix, but we think there is husky somewhere in the family line.  She loves being with people and getting loads of attention and being held and getting belly rubs and playing with toys. She is the biggest wiggle butt and gives kisses freely.  She loves everyone she meets, and she likes to talk often and talk loudly.  It’s the cutest thing now but won’t make her the best apartment dog as a big girl. Of her litter, she is the most confident personality and, dare I say, she’s usually at the front and center of any mischief.  The proverbial party girl looking to have fun, she loves to run and play with her sisters.   A securely fenced yard for her is a BIG plus.  If there is no fence, she will need an active family committed to taking her for multiple walks a day to get her energy out.  Additionally, she really loves playing with other dogs and will need to be adopted to a family with at least one other PLAYFUL dog to help get her energy out and show her how to “dog.”  In her puppy excitement, she is very mouthy/nippy. Due to this, she is looking for a home with kids 10 and older. In a nutshell, she is a typical puppy in that she loves to play, play, play with toys, people and other pups. She will need a family ready to take on the puppy stages and keep her both entertained and using positive reinforcement training to build her social skills and boundaries. She is just now starting her house training and leash skills.  As part of S’mores' $275 adoption fee, she will be spayed, microchipped, up to date on age-appropriate vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.  In addition to the adoption fee, a $100 spay/neuter deposit is due at the time of adoption.  The deposit will be refunded once the puppy has been altered. If you have questions about this sweet little girl, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt S’mores, you can fill in an online application for her under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org. show less
