Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). I'm Spike. I'm a male Chihuahua mix. I was born around November, 2010. I'm an absolute cutie. My current humans are having to find a new home for me due to an illness in their family. I don't want to lose them but they say it's best for me to have a new home that can give me the attention and love that I deserve. I'm very active and would need a fenced in yard to keep me safe as I play with my new family. I love to run. I'm neutered, up to date on my shots, and micro chipped. If you're interested in being my forever family, please call PAWS at 256-383-0690 or visit the website at www.shoalspaws.com to complete an application. To adopt this wonderful pet, complete our online application at: http://shoalspaws.com/adoption/adoption-application/ Once we receive your application, our adoption counselor will review it and contact you as soon as possible. Our adoption fees are: $100.00 for mixed breed puppies/dogs and $175.00 for purebred puppies/dogs; $75 for cats.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). I'm CJ. I'm a male chihuahua mix. I was born April, 2012 so I'm a young lad. I'm as cute as a button. I'm house trained and walk great on a lease. I'm a bit scared of larger dogs so it might be best if I'm in a household with just my humans and no other pets. I don't do well with small children so I don't need to be in a household that has small children. I'm neutered, up to date on my shots, and micro chipped.

      Posted Breed: Feist / Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Hey there, I`m Charlie and I`ve been looking for you! That is, if you`re searching for a new best friend. I was born December, 2012. I`m a feist/min pin boy who is friendly, playful and in need of a new forever friend and family. My first humans took me home when I was just a puppy and cared for me. I loved them very much. Recently, they moved away and could not take me with them. They called PAWS and I am now a foster dog in need of a new home and family. Thanks to PAWS, I am living in great foster home with lots of brothers and sisters. But what I really want and hope for is another family of my own. I love to play, have lots of energy and need a fenced yard so I will be safe when I go outside. I am an indoor guy, and need to be with my humans. Did I tell you I am a very good snuggler? And I can keep you warm at night too! So, if you are searching for my type of guy, I`ve got great news for you... you have just found the perfect dog... ME! I don't care for small children and I don't like larger dogs. I'm neutered, up to date on my shots, and micro chipped.

      Location: Florence, AL
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). My vet thinks that he is a Boxer/Lab mix. He was born around the summer of 2012. Buddy is very playful and energetic. He loves jumping and playing with his tennis balls and other toys. Buddy loves to put his head in your lap to be petted. He also loves tummy rubs and ear scratching. Buddy loves to play with children. Buddy plays for hours with the neighbors lab mix. He also gets along well with the other neighbors doberman. Buddy does not do well with cats. I don't know about small dogs. He chased a deer one night but never caught him. He is 50 pounds. He will eat dry or can food. I was able to teach him to sit one weekend. He needs to learn more discipline, but seems to be very trainable. He has classic boxer personality traits that will need to be addressed if brought indoors. He was able to be leashed at the vets for the week that he was neutered and received all needed vaccines. I leashed him for a week or so while he got used to being at a new property. He was afraid at first, but the neighbors and I gained his trust after a couple of weeks.

She weighs somewhere around 50 pounds. She has gotten too fat this winter. She needs somewhere to run some her fat off. Requires brushing and grooming in the spring time. Not afraid of a water hose bath. Will make a good watch dog. Not real sociable with small animals and small children. Older kids would be okay. Oh yea! Her daddy was a long haired black lab and her mother was a blond, curly tail, pointed ear husky looking girl that I rescued a little over 12 years ago.
