Our Top Candidates


BosleyName: Bosley
Breed: Hound – male – neutered
Age: Approx. 3 years
Size: Approx. 40 lbs.
Avail: February
Info: I was found abandoned in Boiling Spring Lakes. They figured that I was out on my own for a while. I currently have a mouth infection probably from trying to find stuff to eat. So I am on antibiotics. We are definitely trying to put some meat on my bones. Once we do that, we can then get on with the business of treating me for heartworms. Paws Place will take care of these needs so that my adoptive family won’t have to. I hope that you will think about adopting me and letting me show you how loving and gentle I can be.


 

Honey2

Name: Honey
Breed: Lab/collie mix – female
Age: Approx. D.O.B 5-2014
Size: Approx. 45 lbs.
Avail: End of January
Info: My littermates and I were so lucky that a kind gentleman took us in. Our mama was a stray and she was taken to animal control, but they mustn’t have known about us. So he and his wife bottle fed us until we could eat on our own. He thought he could keep us and take care of us, but it proved too much for him. Now we are here at Paws Place, being prepared for adoption. That means vet visits, shots, spaying and microchipping. I’m a little shy around new dogs, but once I’m around them a little bit I’m fine. Oh, I sure hope you like water, because I love the pool. They call me Honey because I’m as sweet as honey!


Hunter 7Name: Hunter
Breed: Hound mix – Female
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 4/2013
Size: Approx. 42lbs.
Avail: Mid November
Info: I was found at Veteran’s Park in September by a kind lady. She did everything she was supposed to try to find my owner, but no luck. What she discovered was that I was house trained, good with children and also other dogs. It was at that time that she named me Hunter. She then contacted Paws Place for help. Since then, I have been to the vets and have been given a clean bill of health. I’m just waiting to be spayed. I really loved the attention that I got when I was around children. It would be so wonderful to have a family of my own. Come meet me at Paws Place. Maybe I can come home with you.


Name: Snowy
Breed: Maltipoo – female – spayed
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 12/1/2006
Size: 7 lbs.
Avail: Ready now (in foster home)
Info: Snowy was found wandering the streets.  We will never know why.  It is obvious Snowy was well loved.  She loves snuggling in your lap, going for walks and follows you everywhere. She is smart as a whip, is housebroken and sleeps through the night with ease. Very spry and still has a spring in her step! She will charm her way into your heart.  ADOPTION PENDING.


BenName: Ben
Breed: Lab mix – male
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 12/1/2013
Size: 45 lbs.
Avail: Late December
Info: A kind lady and gentleman found and rescued Ben and his partner running along Interstate 40.  She contacted Paws Place and asked for assistance.  Ben is a handsome dog who likes to be in charge.  He is been vetted and is up to date on all of his shots and is heartworm negative!  He is a young boy and very trainable.  Come on out to meet this special boy with one brown eye and one blue!


SampsonName: Sampson
Breed: Shepherd mix – male
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 11/1/2014
Size: approx. medium size at maturity
Avail: early February
Info: There were 3 of us that were turned in to a shelter by our owner who couldn’t care for us.  We are now at Paws Place where we are getting lots of TLC and making sure that we get all of our shots.  We are healthy and active – just like puppies are supposed to be.  Come on out to meet us.


GeorgieName: Georgie
Breed: Redbone Hound – female – spayed
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 10/2012
Size: Approx. 50 lbs.
Avail: Ready
Info: They say I’m a work in progress – I guess that is true. You see, I was on death row at the county shelter and Paws Place came to the rescue. I had been shot in the leg and was severely emaciated. It took a while to get me onto the road to recovery but by mid December I was well on my way. Then I was spayed and I had severe complications from the surgery and I almost died. But, I knew that there was some good things out there waiting for me and I really wanted to find out what they were.

I do like to snuggle and definitely love belly rubs. I am almost housebroken and get along with other dogs and children. I really like to run, but I don’t think I’m supposed to do that when I’m on leash – but I’m trying!
We have a trainer who is working with me to help me to feel more secure when I am outside. I will need someone who is very patient and kind. I’m in a very special foster home, but sure would like to have my forever home. Can we make a date to meet?

Baby 4-2014Name: Baby

Size: Approx. 40 lbs.
Age: Approx. DOB 1-9-2008
Avail: Ready for adoption
Info:  My elderly owners couldn’t care for me any more so after I was at the County Shelter the people of Paws Place brought me to their kennel.  We’ve been working on getting me more exercise and helping me lose some weight.  I’m a real “love bug” especially when you rub my belly!  It was discovered that I have heartworms, but I have already completed my treatment. I’m as good as new!  If you need a walking buddy – I could be your girl – just call my name “Baby.”


Velvet 7-2014Name: Velvet
Breed: Lab-Pit mix – female
Size: Approx. 55 lbs.
Age: Approx. DOB 2/2005
Avail: Ready for adoption
Info: I’ve spent most of my life here at Paws Place. I was found chained to a tree and I had no clue as to what life could be like. I think they gave me the name so people would realize that I can be soft as velvet when given the chance. Sometimes I act a little tough when you go by my kennel. But that’s an act – I am a real marsh mellow when I am out and about. I am very affectionate and loving and love to go on walks. I know that the right person or family is out there for me. We just haven’t found each other yet! Come out to Paws Place to meet me.


SageName: Sage
Breed: Shepherd/hound mix – female spayed
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 5-2-14
Size: Approx. medium size at maturity
Avail: Ready
Info: I’m a happy go lucky girl who hasn’t had a lot of attention given to me. I’m good with dogs, cats, kids – you name it. I’m housebroken and crate trained. My former owner went back to school and left me with her family, but they already had 3 dogs and didn’t have time for me too. What I really am hoping for is someone who will give me lots of love and play with me. If given the chance, I know I can be your best friend. What do you say?

Name:  Phoebe
Breed: Shepherd/Collie mix–female
Age:  Approx. DOB 9/20/2014
Size:  Approx. 18 lbs. (mid-size at maturity)
Avail: Late December
Info: I was found as a stray and so glad that I made my way here. I am very shy and sometimes I frighten easily. One of the best things I like is now I have other dogs that I can play and interact with. We don’t think that I will get too big because of my current size for my age. A family with some young children that I could grow up with would be super special.  ADOPTION PENDING.


 

DixieName: Dixie
Breed: Fox hound mix – female
Size: 40 lbs.
Age: Approx. DOB–8/2012
Avail: ready for adoption
Info: Dixie – that’s me! Beautiful! That’s what people say when they see me. I have very pretty markings. You see, I’m a hound mix. I’m now almost two years old, but have lots of energy! A family that would spend time with me and play with me in a fenced yard or take me running would be perfect. Paws Place has made sure that I’m up to date on my shots. I’m HW negative and have been spayed. I’m a tall girl, who weighs about 40 lbs. I really love people and especially kids. Stop by Paws Place to see if we can run together!

Mama (4)Name: Mama Lara
Breed: Shepherd/Lab mix– female, spayed
Size: 75 lbs.
Age: Approx. DOB–3/1/2008
Avail: ready for adoption
Info: I’m Mama Lara – a lot of people just call me Mama. I think that is because everyone saw what a good mama I was to my puppies. I was very protective of them because I raised them on my own out in the woods. Paws Place found loving homes for them one by one. Volunteers have been very patient with me – I didn’t even know what a leash was. Now, I look forward to when I go for walks and I even wag my tail when I see people come into the kennel. I frighten easily and I still have a long way to go, but I have a good soul that just needs a person or family that will have patience with me. My tests showed  that I was HW positive.    Paws Place took care of my medical treatment and I’m as good as new.  I will be rechecked in 6 months to be sure I’m free and clear.  Please come visit me and give me a chance at a real home.  MAMMA LARA IS IN A FOSTER HOME.  PLEASE CONTACT PAWS PLACE TO ARRANGE TO MEET HER.


TessName: Tess
Breed: Red Tick Coonhound – female – spayed
Age: Approx. 4-5 yrs.
Size: 65 lbs.
Avail: Ready
Info:   Tess is approximately 4-5 years old and is up to date on shots, spayed, micro chipped an good with other dogs her own size.  She does not do well with smaller dogs or cats.
She was rescued from an animal shelter and delivered and nurtured a litter of puppies.  Tess was a wonderful mom.  Then attention needed to be focused on Tess.  She needed surgery and then it was discovered that she had heartworms.  She was treated and we are happy to say that 6 months later she is free and clear.   Tess does best in a home environment.  A fenced in yard would be ideal, but even better would be a family that is active and would walk or run with her regularly.


Name:  Tybee
Breed:  Shepherd/lab mix – female – spayed
Age:  Approx. DOB 2/2005
Size:  Approx. 55 lbs.
Avail:  Ready for adoption
Info:  Check out these ears – don’t you think the one that flops is cute?  That alone should call attention to me.  I wish I could figure out how to get people to consider me for adoption.  I’ve been here at Paws Place for quite some time, and it hurts to see other dogs come and go.  We know that I used to get along with cats and while I get along with dogs here, we would have to have a meet & greet if you have another dog.  I can be a little shy when you first come to my kennel.  My friends here at PP think that I would do really well with one person.  I’m very loving and loyal.   Last year I had ACL surgery and I’ve recovered nicely.  One of my favorite things to do is to go for a walk on my leash.  What do you say – give me a chance at a real home again – it’s been a while.  Come see me at Paws Place and get to know me.


MarcoPoloBuddy_DSC2709Name: Marco Polo
Breed: Lab/Pit mix – male
Size: 70 lbs.
Age: Approx. D.O.B. Jan 2009
Avail: ready for adoption
Info: I don’t know how long I was out and about on my own, but I sure feel lucky that I ended up here.  I found my way to Paws Place because someone put an old collar on my neck that had Paws Place tags on it.  When I arrived I was taken to the vet, given all my shots and then we found out that I am HW positive.  I’ve been started on the protocol to treat me.  I’m housebroken and a really good natured dog who loves people.  If you give me a chance and come visit me at Paws Place, I know I will leave paw prints on your heart!


Millie 2013Name: Millie
Breed: Bull Dog/Boxer mix – female
Size: 35 lbs.
Age: Approx. DOB–4/2012
Avail: ready for adoption (special needs)
Info: My name is Millie. Thank goodness for a volunteer from Paws Place.  She heard me crying all of the time in a nearby apartment and recognized that I needed help.  She was able to get me released to Paws Place and boy am I happy.  They say I’m a special needs pup.  I think that’s because I don’t hear so well and I have a deformed rear foot.  But neither one of them stops me from being a loving pooch. I also get around okay.  They think that I am a bulldog/boxer mix and am just about one year old.  I’ve been spayed and have all my shots and I am about 35 lbs.    I am so excited to be here and to be around people who care and other dogs that like to play.   Some of the volunteers have been spending extra time with me and I am walking nicely on a leash and learning different commands.   I know that special someone is out there for me.  Hopefully they will come on out to Paws Place and bring me home with them.


TessieName: Tessie
Breed: Plott Hound mix–female
Size: Approx. 35 lbs.
Age: Approx. DOB 4/1/2012
Avail: Ready for adoption
Info: I was found in Castle Hayne by some kind person.  She knew I needed help and took me to the vet and had me checked out and then brought me to Paws Place.  The vet says I am heartworm positive and they have started me on the protocol for treatment.  If things go according to plan, when I am retested in 6 months I should be heartworm free!   I am so grateful to have people take care of me and feed me. I can’t imagine what it would have been like during those real cold nights in the winter.  I just love the attention I get from everyone.   I really love people and I’m the perfect size, not too big and not too little!  I wonder what it would be like to live in a home with nice people that would take care of me – maybe a fenced in yard?  Can we find out?


Shelby 7-2014Name:  Shelby
Breed:  Blue Tick Hound mix – female – spayed
Age:  Approx. DOB 2/2006
Size:  Approx. 65 lbs.
Avail:  Ready for adoption
Info:    My name is Shelby and I’m a female hound mix, up to date on my shots and weigh about 65 lbs.  and almost 7 years old. But don’t let the gray around my muzzle fool you.  I am a real “people” dog – a love bug really! I’ve been here for a year now.  I’m hoping that my new family comes along soon.   When I wag my tail my whole body wags with it.  I’m looking to spend my life with a family who will take me on walks, and let me run around and play in their enclosed yard.  I’m a mature girl who knows how to behave in a home.  Come  check me out.


John Boy 5-3-204Name:  John Boy
Breed:  Hound mix – male – neutered
Age:  Approx. DOB 2/2011
Size:  65 lbs.
Avail:  Ready for adoption
Info:    I’m named John Boy and I’ve been around a few blocks. In fact, I was found running on one on Oak Island. The good news is I am very smart and gentle. The people here say I have an ‘old soul’. But hey, I’m only two. What’s so old about that? Anyway, I arrived with heartworms and am being treated for that. What else? Oh, the humans here will tell you that I’m clever enough to open a gate. Busted. So, if you want me to stay in the yard, you’ll have to be smarter than me! However, if you want to give me a loving, happy home, I’m smart enough to stay right there. In my dreams, when I go to sleep at night, I’ll hear my human say “Good night, John Boy.” Can’t wait for the real thing!


Name:  Drake
Breed: Lab/Greyhound mix, male, neutered, heartworm negative
Age:  DOB–5/2010
Size:  Approx. 50 lbs.
Avail: Available for adoption
Info:  My owner was a college student who left me with his mother when he went off to school. I missed him terribly and she thought about bringing me to the pound.  When I first arrived I needed to put on weight.  They treated me very nicely and I started to calm down and I feel much better.  I started to play with a friend.  Then all of a sudden I had to have emergency stomach surgery.  It was very scary, but once again I got all the TLC I needed and am fully recovered.  I am on a special diet and medicine.   I still miss my man owner and would like another one to come and get me.  Is there someone out that for me that can be patient and understanding .  Please come out and visit me at Paws Place – you will see me running in my kennel with my big stuffed toy – I love that thing!


ShadowName:  Shadow
Breed: Lab mix–male
Age:  DOB–10/4/2014
Size:  Medium size at maturity
Avail: Mid-January
Info:  I was found as a stray and so glad that I found my way here. I’m as cute as a button. Don’t you just love the little white tuft of hair under my chin. I also have another identifying mark – I only have part of a tail. No one know how or why – but, hey, it doesn’t bother me, I can still wag it, which I do a lot. I love playing with the other puppies. It would be so neat to be adopted by a family with a fenced yard and children.


Name: Valentine
Breed: Hound mix – female
Age: Approx. DOB 1/2011
Size: Approx. 35 lbs.
Avail: Ready for adoption
Info: On Valentine’s Day this lady found me frightened all alone by the railroad tracks. She brought me to Paws Place and that’s how I got my name. (I guess it must be hard sometimes coming up with new names). I’m learning how to walk on a leash and am getting used to people.   I would probably get along with another dog – I’m more than willing to try to find out.  Do you have room in your heart for an early “Valentine?”
