Suki 5-28-2015Name: Suki
Breed: Lab/hound – female, spayed
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 12/18/2013
Size: 25 lbs.
Avail: Ready
Info: I was rescued from an animal shelter by an elderly lady, who realized that I was too much “puppy” for her. I am a cuddler and can be a little shy. Paws Place has already learned that I love to fetch a ball and can be quite social around other dogs. I know I’m in a good place right now, but I would be even happier if I had a family to call my very own.


Name: Alisha
Breed: Small mixed breed – female
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 12-10-2014
Size: 13 lbs.
Avail: End of June
Info: I was surrendered to the County Shelter and then Paws Place came and brought me there. We are not really sure what my breed is, but I am small. I really am a very good traveler in the car and I especially like being held in your lap. So if you are looking for a lap dog, come my way – maybe we are meant for each other.

I’ve already been to the vet and have gotten my first round of shots. Once I am spayed and microchipped I will be ready for adoption. I’m an active girl who loves to play and get lots of attention. I sure hope that I find a family that will take care of me and love me forever.


Name: Bosley
Breed: Hound – male – neutered
Age: Approx. DOB 1/1/2012
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.

Size: 7 lbs.
Avail: Ready
Info: I’m a black and tan chihuahua pup that was dropped off at Paws Place. I’m fully vetted, neutered and microchipped. Although my foster home is great, I long to be with a forever family. When I’m not playing with the other dogs and children of the house, I truly enjoy sitting in a lap and passing out kisses. I know how to walk on a leash and am working on crate training. I even get along with cats – what more could you ask of a guy?!? If you would like to meet me, please contact info@pawsplace.org to set up an appointment to meet me.

Age: Approx. d.o.b. 2/1/2015
Size: 15 lbs.
Avail: mid June
Info: I was found all curled up in a ball on the lawn of a vacant house in Leland. My rescuer thought that I was a big stone. She named me Kismet because she thought it was fate that brought her to me as she is a volunteer with PP. My rescue angel took me home and started working on me getting the nutrients that I needed to get healthy and strong. I’m a four month old female lab mix and I will have had all of my shots and spayed by the time I’m ready for adoption. I am so glad that I was found. I had no idea life could be this good.

Name: Della
Breed: Hound – female
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 5/1/2013
Size: 35 lbs.
Avail: mid July
Info: I found my way to a home where the people were kind and friendly. They took me in, fed me and tried to find my owners. But they could tell by my condition, that I had been lost for quite some time. They contacted Paws Place and that is where my road to recovery started. I’ve only been here since the beginning of May and I have already been to the vet, received shots and get lots of good food and TLC. I have been diagnosed with heartworms, but Paws Place will take care of treating me. I’m a little shy at first, but just like most hounds, I’d be loyal and loving if given the chance. Can you help change my sad eyes to happy eyes?!?


OpalName: Opal (female)

D.O.B. 2-16-2015
Size: less than 10 lbs.
Avail: Ready
Info: I arrived with my three siblings. All three have been adopted and I’m still here. I’m lovable and cuddly, but I have a funny walk. We are consulting with a doctor to see what can be done. But don’t worry, Paws Place will take care of it. I’m up-to-date on all of my shots, spayed and even microchipped. Come on, give me a chance – I don’t let my leg stop me – why should you?!?

Age: Approx. D.O.B. 11-11-2013
Size: Approx. 45 lbs.
Avail: Ready
Info: I was found in the median of a highway laying on a plastic bag. Unfortunately, I can’t tell anyone how I got there, but they could see that I was injured and severely underweight. My rescuers took me in and nurtured me. I was treated for abrasions, and a torn ACL and was also diagnosed with heartworms. But the good news is that I had surgery for the ACL and am undergoing HW treatment. I get along well with other dogs, and I am really good natured with puppies. Come on out to visit me. Ask for the pretty brown dog with the light eyes!

Name: Shawn
Breed: Shepherd/hound – male mix – neutered
Age: Approx. D.O.B. 12/1/2014
Size: Approx. 20 lbs.
Avail: Ready
Info: I am so grateful to have been rescued twice. The first time I went to the county shelter and I was adopted. Unfortunately, that person gave me to someone who didn’t understand puppies and wasn’t taking care of me very well. So that is how I came to live at Paws Place. I’m an energetic puppy who has had very little time spent with me to teach me the ropes. I am a smart boy who is craving attention and I so want to please. If given the chance, I know we can have a good life together. I hear the 3rd time is the charm! Come on out to meet me.


Maggie 1Name: Maggie
Breed: Pit bull mix – Female
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 8/2012
Size: Approx. 40 lbs.
Avail: Ready for adoption
Info: When you come to Paws Place ask for the “cute girl with the green eyes.” That’s me, Maggie. Yes, I’m a pit mix, but I’m really not that big – maybe about 40 lbs. My owner surrendered me when he realized he didn’t have time for me. I’m very affectionate with people and some dogs too! If you have another pet, I think we should meet first. I’m a real cuddle bug. It would be great if you had a fenced in yard where I could run around and play. What do you think – can we play together??? Stop by Paws Place and let’s talk.


RubyName: Ruby (female)
Breed: Rottweiler mix puppies
Size: Large – estimate at maturity between 50-65 lbs.
D.O.B. 3-24-2015
Ready: mid June after spay/neuter
Info: We arrived from Brunswick Co. Animal Protective Services when we were just 5 days old. Mama was with us too and she has taken very good care of us. We are all very healthy and looking forward to being adopted into loving families.


Bailey 2  5-7-2015Name: Bailey
Breed: Aussie/Shep mix (female)
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 9/1/2013
Size: Approx. 45 lbs.
Avail: Ready
Info: I’m a female Aussie Shepherd mix. My breed is a working dog so I have lots of energy. I’m very smart and I like to keep busy. I think it would be really cool to have someone adopt me who was interested in agility training. I bet that would be just awesome. A nice yard to play and maybe children that are age 10 and up would be great. If you have another dog, let’s set up a play date to see how we do together. I’m very healthy, had all my shots and am microchipped. So, what do you say, do you want to play together?


Georgie

Name: 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?


Name: Baby
Breed: Beagle mix - female, spayed
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. My former owners spoiled me so I’m used to being an only dog.  We worked on getting me nice and healthy. Paws Place started by helping me lose weight!  I was also treated for heartworms –  now I’m good as new.   I’m a real “lovebug” especially when you rub my belly.  If you need a walking buddy – I could be your girl – just call my name “Baby.”


Name: Lady
Breed: Beagle mix – female – spayed
Age: Approx. d.o.b. 1/20/2014
Size: approx. 30 lbs.
Avail: Ready
Info: I’m Lady, a one year old beagle mix. My owner went off to school and realized that she didn’t have time for me, so here I am. I’m smallish, about 30 lbs, and I can be a cuddler as well as have lots of energy. I get along with most dogs, but I’m not too thrilled with cats. Of course, if you have another dog and you think you might want to adopt me, it would be a good idea for us to meet first. So come on out and ask for the little Lady.


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.


Name: Marley
Breed: Lab mix – male – neutered
Age: Approx. D.O.B. 3/1/2014
Size: Approx. 60 lbs.
Avail: Ready
Info: I was adopted from Paws Place last year by a loving older couple. Everything was great. Then they moved from their home that had a fenced in yard. Then their daughter was coming to live with them and she had a new baby. All of a sudden, they didn’t have time for me. I’m a good boy, but I do have a lot of energy. After all, I’m still a pup. I love to fetch the ball and I even bring it back. I am housebroken and I love everyone. Stop on by and let’s play together.


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.


Name: 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.  I was heartworm positive when I arrived, but I’m free and clear now!   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?


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:    To be honest, we don’t understand why some loving family hasn’t snatched me up. It can’t be my age, I’m only four. Surely, it can’t be my size – even though I’m about 65 lbs, I’m very gentle and loving. The heartworms that I had are now history because I was treated by Paws Place. I do have some arthritis, but the vets have said that once I’m out of the elements, that should improve too. My “dream job” would be to have a family with some children that I can love and they can give me belly rubs. A fenced yard would be the icing on the cake. Contact my friends at Paws Place if you think we would be a good match. 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:  I found myself at Paws Place because my owner abandoned me at a kennel and never returned for me. It was a very sad time for me when I first arrived at Paws Place. Now I’m becoming my old self. I am starting to trust people again and I love to play with stuffed toys. We think that I’m about five years old with lots of living to do. I probably would do best in a home that didn’t have children under the age of twelve. So, when you come to visit look for the tall black dog wagging a big stuffed toy around! That’s me – saying “come visit me.”


Name: Valentine
Breed: Hound mix – female
Age: Approx. DOB 1/2011
Size: Approx. 45 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?”
