Coco (the white one) is a male. *blind,* literally a live teddy bear, and would cuddle/lay on your lap all day if possible. He tends to still think he is a tiny little puppy and loves to climb all over you and give you kisses.All he needs to get him to him going is a tiny attention and he is all over you. He loves belly rubs and to play with toys. They usually don’t last with him, as he chews through all his toys. But he has lots of fun while the last. He does not like to play fetch, instead he likes to be chased. He likes to show you a toy so you can try and take it from him. He is potty trained but if he has to go he will go inside occasionally. Before he went blind he was over protective with me and did not do well with other dogs. But since he can no longer see I haven’t noticed the same. He tends to do well with kids, so long as they do not hurt him.
Daisy (the black one) is a female. Shes a total princess, she is sassy, loyal, spoiled and always ends up getting what she wants. In her eyes all stuffed animals and toys/balls are hers. She loves to play fetch, she could play fetch all day if possible, never gets tired. She loves car rides, to eat meat and lay in bed under the blankets where she is most cozy. She is potty trained and would never go inside. She is as loyal as a dog can get, she has never so much growled at me. Such a good girl, but is not good with little kids or other dogs. (Until they play fetch with her) Once she knows you and is familiar with you, she is very loyal.
Both are 6 years old spayed/neutered. All of their shots are up to date. During their entire lifetime they have lived indoors, and have never gone an entire day outside, so they are Not outside dogs.
Zachary is super sweet and ridiculously cute. He already knows how to sit when told and he is a good boy on a leash. Zachary arrived at the shelter on 7/2/2020 as a lost pup. He is only about 3 years old and he is ready to be adopted into a new loving home. Zachary is current on his vaccines and he is about 39 lbs. He is now neutered, heartworm tested negative and will be microchipped when adopted. His ID at the shelter is 623394 and he is waiting to meet you in run 828.
The first thing you’ll notice about Java is his eyes, so bright and blue he could be wearing tinted contacts, and then you’ll take in the rest of his beautiful face. After that, you’ll notice his sweet disposition and a personality that’s as bright as his eyes. Java came to the shelter as a lost dog on June 22 and his family hasn’t come looking for him. He’s about 4 years old and weighs 72 pounds, and will sit when told. Java is up to date on vaccinations, now neutered. He has tested positive for heart worms and will need to be treated for those. Java will get a microchip upon adoption. Find him in Run 804 with ID# 623189.
Rufus is a cute, scruffy little guy. He weighs 15 lbs. and is 11 months old. Rufus is cautious meeting new people, and for that reason should not be placed in a home with children under 12 years of age. He can growl at strangers and bark if they approach too quickly. The best way to meet Rufus is with a pocket full of doggy treats and a sweet calming voice. He barked and growled at his foster mom when they meet, but by the next day, he was her best friend.
He’s a great snuggler in bed and very affectionate with his sweet kisses. Rufus loves to play with the resident dogs, and is very confident in his foster home – it’s just new surroundings that scare him. He always keeps his crate clean at night and seems to be about housetrained now. Rufus requires a fenced-in-yard as he is very active. Come meet this special boy but be prepared to be patient, and let him come to you on his terms, and you will have a wonderful companion for the rest of his life.
Lucas has an approximate birthday of 6/14/2019. He was brought to the shelter by a couple that had noticed him hanging around the dumpster in their apartment complex, he actually came up to them. Lucas enjoys playtime with his shelter siblings.
Chino has an approximate birthdate of 6/13/2014. Chino was surrendered to the shelter by his owner that was heading off to college and wanted to find him a home were he could be spoiled and get lots of attention. Chino is a very sweet, loving canine that is willing to please. He does well with his shelter siblings and loves playtime. He should do well with middle aged children, but not recommended for smaller children.
Ebony was found starving in a parking lot with her brother Onyx (below). We later found out Ebony was one of five pups that were dumped from a van on a deserted road when they were only 4 months old. 3 siblings were captured by animal control but Ebony and her brother Onyx somehow escaped and had to fend for themselves for over a week. Both were very emaciated and dehydrated. Ebony had to stay overnight at the vet office with a high fever due to infection from a wound she had on her neck. She is such a sweet and fun but energetic girl who loves attention. We are not sure how Ebony would get along with cats or other dogs or small children. She seems to have a prey drive with small dogs so she may be best as an only pet. She is currently living with her brother Onyx. With some TLC and obedience training we feel they both will be wonderful pets with a family willing to put the time and effort into them.
Charlotte Rose, aka Charlie, is a big fun loving girl who came to Street Paws from Henry County Animal Control. She was held in animal control for 7 months prior to her foster family selecting her to start a new life. The family was surprised how she maintained her happy and playful personality during the uncertain and stressful conditions at the shelter. She was underweight with a lot of ticks, but has since filled out and has a beautiful soft coat.
Charlotte is housebroken and crate trained, although she is currently free to roam the house when her foster family is gone. She walks well on a leash, and has learned a lot of commands, such as sit, down, stay, shake, as well as take it and leave it for treats and toys. She is very treat and praise driven and can learn a lot more! She loves to play fetch and go for walks, but really Charlotte just wants to be around her people. She will follow you around the house or yard and is always ready for a good ear scratch or belly rub.
Charlotte is definitely a people-dog, but with proper introduction, gets along good with other dogs as well. She still has a puppy mentality when it comes to dog-socialization, so any new dog will have to be understanding and patient with her energy and eager barks to meet. She is great with kids, her foster home has a 3 year old, and she is extremely patient with him and is excited to interact with him as much as with the adults. She in untested with cats, but her size and playfulness may be intimidating to any feline housemates.
Jasper is new to the rescue with his siblings Betsy and Tess. Jasper is 5 mo and great with kids and friendly dogs. We don’t know about cats.
Pixie has been with us since she was just a pup and is repeatedly overlooked by adopters as she is timid around new people. It takes her a little bit to adjust and be comfortable with strangers but once she does, she is as happy as can be. Being shy is Pixie’s only fault; she is playful, fun, spunky, loving, overall a nice medium-sized terrier mix who plays well with other dogs. Pixie would benefit from a home with a confident dog and patient humans to help her overcome some of her shyness. In fact, a family willing to spend time with her at the kennel would be ideal.
Our cool Surfer dude enjoys toys, water, and his friends. Play is the thing with Surf, and he thinks he would enjoy games like fetch. He learns very quickly, and will work for treats. This happy go lucky guy would love to meet you.
Paris is a young adult (2-ish) Beagle/Beagle mix who is intelligent, fun-loving, kind, and determined…especially when it comes to following his nose and zooming around the yard – he IS a beagle after all! For this reason Paris will need a home with a fenced yard. Paris gets along well with people and other dogs.
Welcome Jessie! This lowrider is 4 years old and about 18 pounds. Jessie lives with dogs of all shapes and sizes and gets along well with everyone. She especially enjoys convincing the big dogs to let her in on their fun. She’s a sweet girl and loves to snuggle too. Jessie is just learning about crate training and house training but she’ll have it down soon!
Update from Hercules’s foster 7/7: If anyone is looking to adopt a dog, this guy is so great! Gets along with other dogs (He is great with Cricket, a small dog with some anxieties), is so sweet and wants to be near you (while still respecting your space), and seems trained (no accidents in the house, will go in his crate, sits, and listens when I tell him not to do something).
Sadie is just an adorable girl that loves everyone. She is a lab mix (not sure what else) and currently about 12 weeks old. Poor Sadie was turned into the vets office due to her being very sick. She tested to have the horrible parvo virus and her previous owners did not want to pay to treat her to save her life. The wonderful clinic knew she was special and took her in to be treated. She is a happy girl and is outgoing and loves to play. She wants to be everywhere you are. She will probably be a medium sized (50lbs) when grown.
