    Ernie (D0405)
    This is Ernie, he is a bonded pair with Burt. They came to us about a month ago from a hoarding situation. The boys were kept outside so they are still getting used to being indoor dogs. Ernie is VERY attached to his brother, we think because of what they endured together before they came to us. We are hoping to find a forever home they will both be welcome.

  2. Flash (D0511)
    Flash (D0511)
    Meet Flash! He came to 4 PAWS in June 2017 a total mess! He was a hunting dog turned loose to service on his own. He was a walking skeleton with no training and heartworm positive. Over the summer his fosters crate trained him, teaching him how to be an indoor dog. We got him neutered and treated for heart worms. He loves other dogs, he loves kids and he loves playing. He is still learning that counter surfing isn't acceptable but his good features far outweigh the bad!

  4. Spitfire (C0006)
    Spitfire (C0006)
    My name is Spitfire and I am looking for my forever home! I was rescued after someone dumped my pregnant mommy in the woods. She gave birth to us and then a lady trapped us so we could be safe from the neighborhood dogs. I was the runt of the litter but my heart is HUGE! I just want a human to snuggle up with and spend my days loving. I enjoy cuddling up and watching movies. Loud noises scare me so I could do well in a quieter home with older kids or adults. I am fine with other cats and will not chase dogs. I have all of my shots and I am neutered.

    The Three Amigos (D0803, D0804, D0805)
    Meet the three amigos (Mr. Big, Sissy and Scottie BB) to the 4 PAWS family! They came to us after their mom started hospice; sadly she has passed away. They were so scared of doing anything different; they moved everywhere as one, with Mr. Big being the leader. They are 3 year old Keeshond/Shih Tzu mixes who now need a loving home. The now are able to walk on a leash, they are crate trained and housebroken. They are not tiny dogs, they weigh about 35lbs. They have been fostered together in 2 different homes, both homes had kids and other dogs. They have sweet personalities and they love cuddling. All of them have been spay/neutered, shots utd, dewormed and are on flea/hw prevention. We would absolutely love if they could stay together because of their bond. It is a possibility that Mr. Big could be adopted separately. If you are looking for great companions the three amigos might be for you!

  7. Vranna (C0055)
    Vranna (C0055)
    Meet Vranna! He came to us after being found as a stray in Achilles, VA. We advertised for his owner, contacted AC to let them know we had him and waited the mandatory period before completely vetting him. We updated his vaccines, neutered him and tested for FiV/FeLV (both negative). He is definitely not feral, he does figure eights through your legs. He is co-mingling with our cats, has used the litter box from day one and will cuddle once he gets to know you. Vranna is young and small/medium size. He is ready for his own family!

    Danny Boy (D0922)
    Meet Danny Boy! This guy came to us from Bertie County Humane Society, an outdoor shelter. He was heartworm positive and didn’t have any interest. Of course 4 PAWS loves the unwanted so we took him in. Danny Boy had never been inside, his foster family has taught him everything about being a real dog. He is now crate trained, walks on a leash (still pulls a little) and loves attention! He has been treated and cleared of heartworms. He has been neutered, vaccines are utd and he is on flea/hw prevention. All he needs is a loving family!

    Meet Remington. He is a 9 year old Beagle who was surrendered by his owner because they could not afford his medical care. They took great care of him for as long as they could.

  11. Bellatrix (D0902)
    Bellatrix (D0902)
    Please welcome back Bellatrix! She came back to us a few weeks ago after her mom’s work schedule changed and added travel. She wanted to do make sure Bella wasn’t spending all of her time in boarding. Bellatrix is now 9 months old, she weighs under 30lbs. She needs a lot of exercise everyday, she loves going on walks and going for runs. She loves other dogs she loves children but they should be older (she is still working on manners).Once she burns off some energy she is content to curl up on the couch with you and take a nap. Bella is truly a sweet girl and very smart she will pick up on any training very quickly - she’ll do anything for a treat! She sleeps in her crate at night but she would probably do fine outside of one, she is pretty trustworthy. Bellatrix is spayed, vaccines are current and she is on flea/heartworm prevention.

  13. Elena (D0953)
    Elena (D0953)
    Meet Elena! She was rescued November 2018 while pregnant. Since arriving at 4 PAWS she has had her babies (they have all found homes), been spayed and has been treated for heartworms. Elena had been on her own for awhile before animal control was able to catch her so she needed a lot of socialization. Her foster has done an incredible job with Elena however she has a few issues, so her new family will have to be a very special family. She is terrified of men. She also is pretty fearful around strangers especially when children run up to her when walking on a leash. She is very very loyal and loving to her foster family (with the exception of dad). She tucks the kids in at night by jumping on the bed to give them kisses and she sleeps in the oldest son's room. She still seems to have a little stray in her, and has lately been digging holes under the fence to escape (she always happily comes back). She also would do much better in a family that has another dog; Elena really loves the company of other dogs.

  14. Keira (D1092)
    Keira (D1092)
    Meet Keira from the K litter (Keira, Kieran, Kuro and Kodiak)! These babies came to us from an independent rescuer after someone threatened to take the puppies into the woods and shoot them. They are Lab mixes (mom is a Lab, no idea dad’s breed) and they are about 12 weeks old. They have had 2 of 3 puppy vaccines, have been dewormed and are on hw/flea meds. All 4 like the baby pool and will "walk around in the water" on a warm day. Their individual descriptions are posted with each of their pictures. Keira, female She is an independent lady who loves affection but it has to be on her terms. When sitting on the ground she will climb into your lap and enjoy a good rub down, but if being held too tightly she will tell you "enough is enough, let me go & play". She gets along with all of my dogs, big or small, is curious about the cats but has shown no aggression towards them. She loves to give kisses, again, on her terms only, but is very focused on 'her people" and is trying to please. As with her brothers, she loves Pup-peronis which should be a great training treat.

  16. Kodiak (D1094)
    Kodiak (D1094)
    Meet Kodiak from the K litter (Keira, Kieran, Kuro and Kodiak)! These babies came to us from an independent rescuer after someone threatened to take the puppies into the woods and shoot them. They are Lab mixes (mom is a Lab, no idea dad’s breed) and they are about 12 1weeks old. They have had 2 of 3 puppy vaccines, have been dewormed and are on hw/flea meds. All 4 like the baby pool and will "walk around in the water" on a warm day. Their individual descriptions are posted with each of their pictures. Kodiak, male Just like his brother, extremely affectionate to "his people." He will actually go so far to just "talk to you" when first being let out of the crate after a long day at work. It takes some coaxing to get him out in the yard to relieve himself as he just wants to be by your side 24/7. Although crate trained, Kodiak prefers to be with his people and will cry a bit once crated. He enjoys the treats left for him in the crate, but once they are gone, he will cry for you for a while. He's a big snuggle bug who enjoys human companionship a lot. As with his brother, he's crate trained, not housebroken, OK with the cats (more curious than anything) and is very treat motivated - training him should be easy.
