PAWS Rescue/Adoption Animal Stories


These young dogs are being fostered by Judy Fawley, who has helped PAWS many times in the past. 

Judy can be reached at:

ROSIE:  Rosie is a small dog, weighing 23 pounds. She is spayed, house trained and up to date on vaccines and heartworm and flea/tick prevention.  She loves to play and chase balls.  She is a great little companion. Rosie is about two years old.

SOPHIE:  Sophie is a sweet little girl who gives tender kisses. She is small, weighing only 22 pounds.  Sophie is house trained, spayed and up to date on vaccines and heartworm and flea/tick prevention.  She loves to play and be close to her people.  Sophie is about nine months old.  



Harrison needs a home!

Harrison is a very sweet and happy boy. He is a 13-pound Poodle/Lhasa mix and we guess he is about three years old. Harrison likes to play with balls and sleep on the bed.  He was taken from a horrible hoarder/breeder situation and has overcome so much suffering. He has been neutered and is up to date on shots and dental work.  Unfortunately, we had to have eight teeth removed due to his previous situation.  Harrison will pee and potty outside, but is currently in a home with two other dogs and does tend to “mark” his territory.  He may do better as an only dog, or with someone who has more time to work on his training. This extremely loving dog deserves a chance to be someone’s very special companion. 

If you are interested in Harrison, please contact PAWS at (336) 565-8610.
