Andie Needs Love
A Sweet Senior Lady, Looking For Snuggles

Andie is a sweet senior lady that has been waiting over a year for her home. She is looking for a special adopter. Andie loves to snuggle on the couch, get belly rubs, give kisses and follow her humans around. She is so eager to receive attention and affection from her loved ones that sometimes she can be pushy.

When Paws for Life rescued Andie from the shelter it was obvious she had been neglected and possibly abused for most her life. With time and patience Andie has come a very long way. She is super loving but needs time to gain trust, especially with men. Andie will need a home with a patient owner/family that will give her time to adjust and feel comfortable setting boundaries for her. Andie is good with dogs, cats and with older kids who are respectful and understanding of animals. She loves to play with her foster mom's eight-year-old niece and ten-year-old nephew.

Andie is very food motivated, which is great for training, but she sometimes accidentally nips your fingers when she thinks you have treats. It is best to feed her with an open palm. We know that the perfect person is out there looking for a special companion like this sweetie.

Romulus – A Paws In Need Rescue

A Ruff Start

Romulus, this handsome big-headed boy, spent nearly a year in our foster program. In the summer of 2015, Romulus was picked up by Franklin County Animal Control at the request of his owner. He had spent the first years of his young life tied to a tree but that didn't keep his tail from wagging. Eventually, he was adopted from the shelter... but his new owner gave him up after she learned he was heartworm positive. Then, he found temporary refuge with a wonderful, dog-loving family, but couldn't stay there because his main caregiver was suffering from severe arthritis.

Woeful Times

I was in contact with the family and eventually began to foster this big baby in December 2015. Early on this sweet boy didn't get much attention at events or online. I spent lots of time helping socialize Romulus and teaching him house manners. During the summertime of 2016, Romulus got his first chance. Unfortunately, he broke out of his crate and "rearranged" and destroyed some things in his adopter's home. He was returned to the rescue. Then, during the fall, he had his second chance. However, the potential adopter's dog was not too fond of having a new dog in the house. They said Romulus was not able to be himself so again, he was returned. They say third time is a charm, right???

Third Times a Charm

Well, this sweet story proves this to be true! Romulus met a nice family at an adoption event in Knightdale and they loved his calm demeanor. When Romulus went on his third home trial, I said if it didn't work out this time I was planning to adopt him myself! I warned the new family that Romulus is an escape artist and recommended they use zip ties for his crate. A few days in to the home trial, pictures were sent of Romulus' interior decorating skills. I was worried this was going to lead to him being returned again. The family said it was okay and he is still a good dog. They purchased zip ties following the incident.

A few days later, I received a wonderful e-mail saying Romulus did great with their young nephew and with their elderly parents and that they wanted him to stay forever. It was a Christmas miracle for Romulus! Now he has two human siblings, one fur sister and two parents to call his own. Happy life, sweet Romulus, and thank you to all the wonderful people who took part in helping save this big-headed baby from the shelter!
