About Katy

Ask about Katy!

This girl is such a soft touch. She’s very affectionate despite her heartrending beginning.  Most of her life she was chained to an old refrigerator in a back yard, which made her fearful when strangers approached. Katy needs a kind and patient dog-experienced person—someone who is looking for a companion and who will take the time to earn her trust and build her confidence with positive-training methods. We have been using distraction and rewards to help her overcome her fear of unfamiliar people, felt mainly when she’s on-leash. Volunteers are helping Katy learn to enjoy herself when she’s out and about. Stopping for a few minutes forcuddles goes a long way with her! She gives lots of kisses and is a big “leaner.”

Katy loves to play with other dogs in daycare. Also, she enjoys car rides. Sometimes she naps in the back until she smells the air of the woods and water of a nearby lake. Then she perks up and cannot wait to go for a walk!

She will thrive in a quiet, settled home with adults, ideally a place with a fenced-in yard in a suburban or rural setting. She’s fine with most other dogs, but kitties, not so much. Katy needs to begin the next phase of her life. Will you please help her?

Hi, I'm Haylie.  I'm a 6 month old lab mix.  Currently I weigh around 40 pounds and my black fur shines in the sun.  If you are looking for a very sweet energetic pup, then I might be the perfect addition to your family.   Currently I am living with my foster family.  There are a lot of playmates here and I do well with all of them.  The cats don't like me much though.  They hiss at me, just because I like to sniff at new things! My foster mom tells me "No Kitties" and then I know the sniffing needs to stop.  The kids are great.  I like it when they give me hugs and go outside with me.  My doggie foster sisters are a lot of fun.  We wrestle and play together.  I would be lonely if I didn't have anyone to play with so my forever home needs to have at least one other dog so we can play together!   I love running around outside.  My perfect home would have a nice fenced yard.  After a hard day of playing I like to curl up on the couch.  Okay, actually I like to sprawl out on the couch, causing everyone else to sit around me.  I also like to chew on rope toys and chase tennis balls.   My foster mom says I am a great house guest since I am potty trained and I hardly ever bark.  She also says I am young and energetic, but not destructive.   I can "sit" and I'm working on my leash skills.  I don't love going into my crate at night but once I'm in, I settle down quickly. Come and meet our PAW dogs at one of our weekend adoption shows at local area pet stores.  The shows run from 12 - 2 pm.  Not all our dogs attend every show so if you are interested in meeting a particular dog send an email to info@paw-rescue.org before coming to the show to arrange a visit.   show less

Paddy is an adorably handsome 3 year old American Bulldog mix and weighs 56 lbs. He is a playful and super cuddly boy with soft eyes and a happy tail that's always wagging. Paddy does great with his two canine foster siblings and loves to play with them. He is housebroken, crate trained, walks well on a leash, and knows various commands. Paddy loves to run around in the yard and play fetch with a ball; he will always return it to you and knows the command "drop" while sitting patiently waiting for you to throw it again. He likes to tear the stuffing out of soft toys, so durable toys rated for "strong chewers" work best for him. Paddy will sweetly curl up in your lap or lie down beside you to settle down and relax; he adores being with his people. He needs to be sure he can trust new people, so he does best with soft and slow introductions. Once that trust is established, he loves you fiercely and forever! He's a smart, gentle, lovable boy waiting for his forever family. Paddy will do best in a home with a confident and kindhearted leader, and no young children.

Sweet Sky is a two year old, 60 lb., German Shepherd mix who has recently found a foster home. His foster mom has the following to say about Sky: In less than a week since we started fostering Sky, he’s shown that he is smart, energetic, great with kids, great with other dogs, and has an amazing sense of smell. Sky is also great on a leash and, if anything, he takes a little longer to explore every little smell along the way. When he’s home with just our dog, he lays around on the couch all day, and takes a lap around the house every once in a while. He’s not much of a barker at all. Given his looks, his strong food motivation, and habit of exploratory sniffing, we think he’s probably part fox hound. Sky is house-trained and can sit when asked. He travels really well in the car (in a crate). Sky is also a really fast runner but is actually a little clumsy with his long legs.  Sky’s very food-motivated, so it will be important to keep food up and away until he’s been fully trained not to counter-surf. He is also food-reactive with other dogs at the moment. We’re working with him on that issue daily and have been able to have him and our other dog receive training treats together already. If his new home has a doggy roommate, they will need to be fed separately until he is trained to not be food aggressive.  He doesn’t show any food aggression towards people or children.  Sky would make a fabulous companion for any loving home! show less
