Young, good-looking, athletic, (very) smart, charismatic guy seeking a long-term committed (like forever) relationship with a fun, active, loving family. Prefer parents who will commit to patiently explaining their expectations and showering me with food, toys and good times. Highly desire both skin and fur siblings (dogs only) for the delivery and receipt of complete and unconditional love. I’m Aero Postale … aptly named because I’m young, hip and my good looks will never go out of style. I’m an ~8-month-old Red Heeler mix. At 46 lbs and growing, I am a big, energetic bundle of love. I have a very loving nature and am a professional wet-kisser who is always happy to greet you. I am eager to please and will sit politely for food. I’m happiest when I can be with my people or playmates. Indoors, your lap is my preferred resting area. Outdoors, I’m all boy! I like to chase balls and I play friendly (but hard) with all of the dogs in the yard. In fact, I recently spent a week at doggie day daycare and got a glowing report on my friendliness with others. I travel well in the car and do okay on the leash. I do pull when I get excited about meeting other dogs, but I’m working on it. I’m a natural for lots of outdoor activities like walks, hikes, and running ... and I’m confident I would excel at agility if that is something my family would enjoy doing with me. My energy and enthusiasm could be a little overwhelming for little ones, so older skin siblings are better for me. I think cats exist purely for my chasing pleasure. I call it fun, they call it harassment—we will never get along! I don’t like being crated, but I will settle in after a few minutes. Boredom, in or out of the crate, is not my friend so toys/chews, playmates and a big fenced yard to pass time in will work well for you and me. I am mostly house-trained but haven’t figured out how to signal when I have to go out, so I have to rely on you to remember. Fun fact though--I potty like a girl. If I sound like the boy for you, please apply to be my family at www.pawforlifenc.org. I am neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all of my age appropriate vaccinations and flea/tick/heartworm preventives. show less

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

Angus is a sweet little boy who is approximately 6-8 months old. He is assumed to be a jack russel, chihuahua mix and he is about 10 lbs. This gentle soul has clearly had a rough start to life and it is time he finds a forever family that will pamper him and show him all the love in the world. He is full of love and trust and lives to keep you company. He has clearly been neglected in his first few months of life so he has had a lot to learn since entering foster care. He is so eager to please people that he has made dramatic improvements in potty training, kennel training, socializing with people and socializing with other pets. He really is going to make a wonderful addition to a lot of different family options. He seems to be incredibly loyal and will likely have a stronger bond with one individual in a family - I picture him thriving as a five-year-old girls first dog- getting dressed up for tea parties, or being a work from home professional companion where he can rest at their feet while they work all day, or a senior citizens pet where he gladly keeps someone company and spreads love and cheer to their day. He really is a happy dog and just wants to love and be loved on. He is a cuddle bug but he does have some high energy breeds in his mix so he will need a walk or to play fetch or to have some activities to get some exercise but the rest of the day he just wants to relax with you. He loves bones and treats and will entertain himself too. Any other question you can email his foster mom at mnhenson@ncsu.edu OR you can fill out an application at www.pawsforlifenc.org 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

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. 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 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 $75 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
