“Darlings! Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beautiful!”  Gracie is a stunner, isn’t she?  She has that effortless elegance of the 1950’s Hollywood movie stars …I’m thinking of Audrey Hepburn, Jean Harlow, Natalie Wood and Grace Kelly!  JUST LOOK AT HER IN HER PEARLS!  ABSOLUTELYGORGEOUS!  Adopt her and she will be the star of your heart and home.  The best part is, she won’t hog the bedbecause she prefers to sleep in a crate, on a cushion or on the couch! To make Gracie your leading lady she needs to be your one and only (as she can be very dog selective.)  Much smaller dogs don’t get a rise out of her, but medium to large dogs seem to make her angry.  She’s probably worried they will steal the spotlight!  She does better with male dogs versus female dogs.  It is the opposite when it comes to her human companions though.  Gracie is wary of most men she meets (but yet she loves my husband and daughter’s boyfriend).  She may growl and bark, so slow introductions are a must (which is always best practice with ANY dog) until she gains your trust. Giving her treats may help let her gain a man’s trust.   Gracie has a high prey drive, so no cats and better watch out for squirrels on walks. Despite her strength she walks well on a leash. Definitely no other four-legged housemates, no dog parksand no small children. Gracie loves long walks in the afternoon, but is not a fan of the rain.  She (usually) sits for Milkbone biscuits and other treats and takes them politely (but sometimes that “wiggle-butt” gets the best of her and she needs multiple sit commands.)  She used to take pills with meatballs, so she loves them as a special treat! (Wonder if she it Italian?She does have that dark olive complexion)  She gets very happy and excited at meal times (but, hey…don’t we all! LOL!) Gracie is spayed and has completed her heartworm treatment, plus she is up to date on all of her vaccines and monthly preventatives…so she is just waiting for her next starring role in your family!  If you think you Gracie is the right girl for your home (where she will be the only pet) then she would love to meet you.  You can start by filling out an adoption application today at PawsforLifeNC.org and Gracie will get in touch with you very soon!  Until then she will continue to captivate her admirers…but just remember, don’t hate her because she’s beautiful! “Cut!  That’s a wrap Ms. Gracie!  Great job…keep up the good work! None of this will end up on the cutting room floor as you are just flawless Darling!”   My adoption fee is $250.  If you think I might be your forever baby girl, you can fill in an online application for me here:  http://pawsforlifenc.org/pet-adoptions/apply-for-adoption/.  If you have questions, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  I can't wait to meet you!! show less

(DOB 07/13/2013)  Hello, my name is Leo.  I am 6 years old and weigh about 55 pounds.  We think I am a shepherd/beagle mix.  My ears are so soft and cute!   When I'm getting a good scratch, I don't want you to stop and I'll let you know by giving you my paw.  I am very sweet and like to please those that take care of me.  I am house trained and have good manners!  I love car rides and get super excited to go on a walk.  I feel protective of my people when I'm outside of my house.  I get along well with the dog that I live with, but when I've met unfamiliar dogs, I can get upset.  If I could get to know a new dog, perhaps we could be friends.  We are unsure if I would be good with cats.  I take daily medicine for a minor medical condition that I have, and also for anxiety.  I don't like to be in a crate, but my foster family has found that I'm a good dog and can be trusted when left outside the crate.  I would love a fenced yard so I can go outside at times and sit in the sun and explore.  I would like if my adopter could be home often so I won't be alone for long periods of time.  I think I'd be best with adults and older children.  Thank you for considering me, and I'm looking forward to those ear rubs please!!  A portion of Leo’s adoption fee is being paid for by a grant from the Petfinder Foundation! His adoption fee is reduced from $225 to $100.  As part of his adoption fee, Leo is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.  If you have questions about Leo, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Leo, you can fill in an online application for him here:  http://pawsforlifenc.org/pet-adoptions/apply-for-adoption/. show less

Mr. Malcolm is a sweet, fun, 40lb, 2 year old "Pocket Pit".  He can be a little shy at first, especially with men, but warms up after a while.  With time Malcolm will be your best friend!!  He is house trained, crate trained, a very good listener, and generally well behaved.  Mr. Malcolm absolutely loves to play with other dogs, and would do best in a home with a fenced yard (no electric fence) and or another doggie friend, to help bring out his confidence.  He can be a bit timid with younger children, if they move too fast, but would be fine with older children.  He has not been cat tested, but hasn't shown a strong prey drive or aggression of any sort, so he may be able to share a home with cats.  He needs some coaxing to get into a car, but rides very well once on the road.  This active little guy walks great on a leash, and enjoys his treats!  Mr. Malcolm would love to find his forever home!  As part of Malcolm's $250 adoption fee, he is neutered, microchipped, has had a full vet exam, is up to date on vaccines, and is current with his monthly flea/tick and heart worm preventatives.  If you have questions about Malcolm, please email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Malcolm, you can fill in an online application for him here:  http://pawsforlifenc.org/pet-adoptions/apply-for-adoption/. show less

Marla is a sweet and loveable mutt!  We have tried to figure out what she is mixed with, but our best guess is a hound mix of some sort! At around 55 lbs, she is on the larger side of medium, but her short legs make her appear more demure. We would call her a medium energy dog as she will run and play as long as she wants. She does seem to store up some of that energy, if she is in her crate for a longer period of time, but as long as she is allowed to exercise and walk, she is happy! She loves to get loves but needs a little work on her boundaries and personal space because she will get as close to you as possible; she loves to rest her head on your shoulders and get hugs.  Marla looks at each toy as a deconstruction challenge. She will show you exactly what it’s made of so you know for next time :). She does well with dogs one on one, mostly boys, with slow introductions. Dog parks aren’t really her thing, she likes the space to herself and is choosy with who she allows into her circle. She must be in a cat-free home due to the hound in her. She also would do best in a home with older kids due to her lack of boundaries. She is house trained, does NOT love her crate but tolerates it, and does not show any food aggression at all (with dogs or humans)! She is very smart and is doing well learning her commands. She really would love a home where she could get hugs and kisses all day!  Marla is a four year old, 55lb, female Hound mix.  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 about Marla, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Marla, you can fill in an online application for her here:  http://pawsforlifenc.org/pet-adoptions/apply-for-adoption/. show less
