Dax, Labrador retriever mix

Dax is a charming male Labrador retriever mix staying at PawsCo.

Dax loves other dogs and kids, but his ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Rest assured: He's already neutered, has had all his shots and has mastered his house-training etiquette.

Meet Dax:

Go big or go home, that’s my motto! I’m Dax, and I’m all-in when it comes to most things in life, especially playing and napping. I like to run, romp and chase things. Then, I’ll power down for a good snuggle session on the couch. I’ll do almost anything for a treat or a Kong filled with peanut butter, like show you one of my favorite tricks — sit, stay and shake. Do you love hugs? Great! I give the best, biggest hugs! Does it surprise you that I love every person I meet? I’m a total gentle giant.

Stitch, boxer mix

Stitch is a cheeky male boxer mix being cared for at Red Fern Animal Rescue.

Stitch gets along great with other dogs. Good news: He is already house-trained, microchipped, vaccinated and neutered.

Here's what Stitch's friends at Red Fern Animal Rescue think of him:

Stitch wants you to be his Lilo! This sweet boy loves everyone. He is around one year old and has a shorter coat, because he is a boxer mix. He loves to cuddle, and is super sweet and affectionate. Stitch likes his walks and playing, but he also loves his downtime when he can snuggle.

Robert, shepherd and rottweiler mix

Robert is a handsome male shepherd and rottweiler mix being kept at PawsCo.

Robert is well-behaved around other dogs or children, but would prefer to be placed in a household without cats. No need for concern: He's already house-trained, neutered and vaccinated.

A bit more on Robert:

Hey everyone, I’m Robert! I’m looking for my forever home, which is the thing I want more than anything! I am such a friendly guy, and I would just love to have a family who gives me lots of pets and affection. I would do really well in a home with a big yard, or maybe even some land, so there’s plenty of room for me to run and play. At the very least, I'd love an owner who is active and can take me out on adventures! Once I've had my exercise for the day, I absolutely love to cuddle, and am a pro at taking naps. I can’t wait to find a new forever family. Could that be you?
