Breed: shepherd x
Rescue story: owner surrender
Hi! I’m Piper! I am a sweet girl when you get to know me. I’m anxious, so my vet is helping me with my anxiety and I’m trying out some calming medication to see if it helps me to be less worried on walks. Right now, I’m scared when I meet other dogs on walks, so I put on a show and bark and make a scene to scare them off. My foster is working on refreshing my leash training in the yard where it’s less scary for me. I like that because I have to think but I don’t have to worry as much.
Now for the good stuff! I’m great in the house! I don’t make messes or chew things I shouldn’t.
I love toys! I also love when people play with me. When I lived in my previous home, I was able to play with my people a lot and I really like to play with independent toys or interactive toys. Either is great with me.
When my family started to grow, I started to get nervous of the new little humans in the house. The unpredictable noises and crawling, and playing was pretty scary for me so I acted out and nipped our toddler. I know I shouldn’t have, but I hadn’t lived with little kids before and so I panicked. I really am looking for a home where it’s nice and calm. If there are kids, older, dog savvy teens would be best because they will be more able to read my body language and understand me.
I love female humans! I never had a bad experience with men, I just like ladies the most. I was very close with both my mom and dad, so I hope to meet some new parents that I can bond closely with and live with for the rest of my life.
Do you think you’d like to play with me? How about snuggle up on the couch and watch some movies? Oh! I know, we can work on training together! I love to please and work for rewards! I promise to be your best friend and love you to the moon and back. Apply for me today and you’ll see how great I really am!

Rescue Story: Owner Surrender
Hi I’m Obi! My foster pawrents say I’m such a good boy! The best boy! I am a people pleaser and love all the positive reinforcement training I get and all the nummy treats!
I love to play with friends and would be fine with a more mature dog at home. I’m enough puppy for one family. I do have a few piddle accidents when I’m really excited. This just needs time and a safe stable home. It’s minor I promise! A quick clean up and I’ll cover you in kisses!
I’m a typical pup, just would prefer a home with older kiddos. I love to learn and look forward to learning with my new family!

bb & Goober-Pending (Yay)
Names: Goober (blonde pom chi x) & Bb (shih tzu x)
Sex: neutered male & spayed female
Ages: Approximately 10 years each
Energy level: medium-low
Good with: everything and everyone
Hi guys! We’re Bb and Goober! We’re a package deal so our bio is getting posted together. You can’t have one without the other.
We’re a senior pair of sweeties who love to be snuggled, go for walkies, and play. We love cozy beds, wearing cute clothes, playing with our friends at Paws at Play, and all in all being spoiled dogs! Yup, we’re spoiled and we can’t stop/won’t stop living the good life!
We both need regular grooming visits every 8 weeks, so if spa days aren’t in the budget, we aren’t for you! We like to get our nails done and our hair did! I mean, we have a look to maintain.
Now, we’ll be upfront, we aren’t perfectly potty trained. In our previous home, we were loved but our bathroom routine was confusing for us. We are still getting used to having regular access to outside and we’re doing well with a routine in place. Just please know that we are trying our best, but we need to have an owner who is dedicated to helping us learn and understanding that it’s not our fault that we don’t know how just yet how to be 100% successful in the house training department.
If you think you’d like to give us the wonderful home we both deserve and are committed yo giving two seniors the opportunity to shine in their golden years, apply today.

Hi! I’m Vada! I came into care with Paws in Need when I was surrendered by my family because I started to guard my mom from the other pets in the house and it made it very difficult to ensure all of us fur babies were safe. It was very hard for my family to say goodbye, but they stay in touch with me through my foster family at Paws at Play and I know they loved me to the moon and back.
My foster parents at Paws at Play say I look like the sweetest sugar glider you’ve ever seen. I do look pretty sweet, so I’ll take the compliment!
I love to cuddle my people, go for walks, play at dog daycare and explore while on adventures. I definitely want to go hike some trails with my new family, camp, and go for some really awesome walks. I bond very closely to my people and am known to bond really close with one person in my home. When I do get comfortable and settle into my home, I do tend to protect my special person from other animals and people. That’s why I’m seeking out a home where I can be the center of the universe… I mean only pet. I’m a little weary of men, so I often feel most comfortable surrounded by women. What can I say, I like my girl’s only club! In all fairness though, I do like the guys who help care for me at daycare (they are pretty grrreat in my books)! Ha ha!
If you are searching for a perfect movie watching companion, an enthusiastic hiking partner, a great listener, and all in all a wonderful best friend, consider adopting me. I promise to be your whole world if you promise to let me be yours.

Rescue story: Judy came to the rescue after being surrendered with a severe reaction to stinging nettle which caused her to have burns all over her body.
Good with Kids?: No
Good with Dogs?: No
Good with Cats?: No
Hello I’m Judy. I am a loving girl who has had a hard life but since coming to Paws in Need, things are really looking up for me! My skin has all healed from the burns, but I do have a few fur-less patches, so I prefer to wear a shirt or sweater to keep me warm. I am looking for a quiet, patient home where I can settle in and start living life to its fullest. I have proven to not like the men that come into my life, likely past trauma, so I prefer a female only home. I am just getting acquainted with the outside world, so I need to be introduced to new things slowly and with lots of positive reinforcement. I take a little while to warm up to new people but once I am given some space and understanding, I love to spend time with the people I trust. My favourite activities include cuddles, car rides and walks in quiet areas. I am learning new tricks and love engagement activities like hide and seek or eating my kibble out of a snuffle mat. I am comfortable in a kennel while you are away but also do fine left out in the house alone. I would do best in a detached house setting with a yard.
Medical: I am a few medications to manage my anxiety and recovery.
Behavioural: I can be very selective with my human and typically don’t like to share them. I can nip or growl if you invade my space when it’s not welcomed.
**Please note – enrollment in force free training is required for my adoption.
