Chapo here! I hoping you can help me find a family or even a single human friend. I am 3 years old and full of life and love. My start to life was a little rough. I was taken to PACC after I was hit by a car at 9 months old. My left arm was shattered and so my leg had to come off. I went to live with a loving family and their dogs. I loved all my dog friends for a while, but I soon learned that life was better when I am myself with my parents and they weren't around. I don't like to share my toys, space or people with other dogs, so I need to be in a home with no other dogs. I don't know what these things called cats are that everyone asks me about.  My mom moved away for work for a few months and took me with her. I loved being all by myself with her. We would go to the park every day and cuddle every night. She said I am a bed hog. My absolute favorite activity is going on car rides. I would love to find a home where I don't have to share my parents, play with toys, chase water, play with my flirt pole, and go on walks. Despite only having 3 legs, I still have loads of energy and it doesn't slow me down one bit! I don't have accidents in the house and am not crated when I am left alone because I usually sleep on the couch or bed all day. I love my dog door and use it all the time, but I also can hold it if I don't have a dog door. Would you be willing to let me call you and your bed mine? Chapo's current family is willing to continue to pay for pet insurance for him and any veterinary bills that may come up. show less

Fiona is a 1 ½ year old Terrier/Pit (?) mix that weighs about 44lbs.  She is a happy, playful girl that loves to run and wrestle with her dog buddies in the back yard. Fiona (along with her play buddy Rose) came out of a kill shelter in Texas shortly after hurricane Harvey hit the Houston area.  She was a “crusty puppy” with a severe case of Demodex mange and the associated secondary infections.  Once treated, her coat came back and to our surprise, she was a scruffy puppy!  Her mother is a typical Pit with the very smooth coat.  Due to circumstances created by the hurricane, Fiona was not able to get adopted as a younger pup.  The fosters moved to Tucson and now that things have settled down, Fiona is ready to be meet her forever family, get adopted and start a new chapter in her life.  Fiona is a people dog, she prefers to be somewhere near her humans. She also loves play with other dogs her size.  Fiona is not an Alpha dog and acts submissive to almost any dog when confronted.  She is friendly to all she meets, but, due to her size and playfulness, would do better in a home without little dogs or cats.  Fiona is working on her manners and learning to walk on a leash.  We think Fiona will really thrive in a home with just one or two playmates where she can get the one on one attention she so desires.  She is spayed up to date on her vaccinations and ready to go home with the right family. show less

Meet Gil! Gil is an incredibly sweet, loving, playful, and mischievous little boy! He was found in a rural area of Arizona in July 2007 and brought to Tucson by a small group of women who have been taking care of him since his arrival. Gil was shot in his spine at close range. As a result, he is paralyzed in his hind quarters. The bullet lodged in his spine was removed and he has undergone physical therapy at PAWS, however, we now know that Gil will never walk again. Gil has been fitted with a wheelchair and loves to run around his foster mom’s yard in it! He also loves to take walks, although his manners need some work when meeting other dogs on his walks. Aside from that, however, Gil is AMAZING with other dogs – big or small – he loves to play and run and just be one of the pack. He has shown no aggression toward the cat that he is currently fostered with, although he does like to chase her if she runs! Gil is fecal and urinary incontinent – but with prescription diet his bowel movements are consistent and he can often hold them until he gets outside. He wears a belly band and his bladder is expressed 2-3 times a day, which is a very easy task when he’s in his wheelchair. Gil is currently receiving massage, acupuncture, and laser therapy to keep him healthy and his front limbs strong and supported. He eats a prescription dog food (Royal Canin Gastrointestinal), takes pain medication twice daily, and is on pre-biotics (Fortiflora), glucosomine and DPA and EHA supplements. He would make an ideal family member for a couple who are retired and have a bit more time to give to his needs. He would be best in a home with other animals as he really does love to play! While Gil’s life was forever altered by the cruelty of humans, he harbors no ill will toward anyone. His heart is as big as they come, and he will remind you of the joy of living and the importance of living every moment to its fullest. He has an incredible foster team here in Tucson and if he stays in the Tucson area at least one of the members of Team Gil can offer care for him when his new family goes on vacations or takes weekends away. Come meet Gil today, guaranteed his smile and energy will be an instant mood booster! show less

This description is a bit longer than most but worth reading! He's an awesome boy patiently waiting for his furever home that will love and appreciate him the way he deserves! This sweet boy needs an owner or family who truly understands dogs, that they have their own personalities and quirks, and how to adjust our expectations and behaviors as needed to make him feel safe and accomodate him. If someone tries to pick him up when he's not expecting it, or even if he is but doesn't want handled, he will BITE. He's NEVER reacted without a warning growl but you have to listen to those verbal cues and not push him. When you're aware of the few situations that result in that reaction and how to listen to his warnings...you'll get along great! He's been with his foster mom for almost a year and only one kid got a warning bite in the beginning. Part of that is his becoming more comfortable over the months and part of that is us avoiding the situations that stress him out. At first I couldn't manhandle, play, or pick him up nearly the way I can now. It took him quite a while to adjust but I'm even able to give him a pretty decent haircut myself. He's around children from 6-14, as well as adults of all ages and sizes and with them understanding how to handle and treat him and respecting that, they only get love and kisses and snuggles from him! Meet Mister Cuddles. He does like love and cuddles but the name doesn't begin to describe this playful, loving, sometimes cranky or testy, goofy, high energy little man. He's about 3-4 years old and 25 lbs but only about 15 inches tall and 22 inches long (while standing on all fours), so a squat but solid man. He plays fetch & tug-of-war, loves treats (even if the thing he's eating isn't meant to be eaten), chases a laser light (like a cat), and loves snuggles and bum scratches. He mostly does good with the other dogs, although he wants to rule the place and walks around like he does. He will bark but it rarely lasts long and is typically directed at whoever is outside or approaching the house. He likes to be outside and would certainly love more walks and runs outside than he ever gets at his foster home. Cuddles is one smart pup and is crate trained and uses the doggy door. He gets along with the other dogs in the house although I do think he'd do better in a home with fewer and where he could be the big man of the house and get more undivided attention. He gets along great with kids--they only have to be big enough to know how to read, understand, and respond to his verbal cues and body language because you can't force him to do what he doesn't want--or he will bite. His foster mama and extended family loves him to pieces and would adopt him in an instant if there weren't already enough permanent dog residents in the home. If you give him at least a pound of love, respect, and patience...he'll give you 10 tons of love, loyalty, entertainment, and adorableness! show less

Rose is a 60 lb, 1 ½ year old Lab/Hound (?) mix.  She is a happy, playful girl that loves to run and wrestle with her dog buddies in the back yard. Rose (along with her play buddy Fiona) came out of a kill shelter in Texas shortly after hurricane Harvey hit the Houston area.  She was a “crusty puppy” with a severe case of Demodex mange and the associated secondary infections.  With some medication, some good medicated baths and lots of love and affection, the mange was gone and the beautiful coat she has now appeared.  Due to circumstances created by the hurricane, Rose was not able to get adopted as a younger pup.  The fosters moved to Tucson and now that things have settled down, Rose is ready to be meet her forever family, get adopted and start a new chapter in her life.  Rose loves attention and will sleep on the bed with you if you will let her.  She is friendly to all she meets, but, due to her size and playfulness, would do better in a home without little dogs or cats.  Rose is working on her manners and learning to walk on a leash.  She is very food motivated, so a few little treats go a long way to helping her learn new things.  We think Rose will really thrive in a home with just one or two playmates where she can get the one on one attention she so desires.  She is spayed up to date on her vaccinations and ready to go home with the right family. show less
