Felipe is very playful and high energy and needs a home with an active family and ideally a yard. He enjoys toys, retrieving tree branches, zooming around in circles and also likes to nip ankles, feet and shoes and “herd” his humans. As a young boy, he needs some training and boundaries to be set.

Kota, Staffordshire bull terrier and boxer mix
Kota is a male Staffordshire bull terrier and boxer mix staying at Red Fern Animal Rescue.
Kota loves other dogs. His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment and a home without small children. Kota is already neutered, he has had all his shots, and he's mastered his house-training etiquette.
From Kota's current caretaker:
Kota is a very affectionate and loving boy, but he does come on strong, so if he is placed in a home with another dog, there needs to be an appropriate introduction first. He’s a strong boy that needs a lot of love and attention. He is high energy and would love a yard to play in. He is a big fan of pools and water. He is leash trained, loves his long walks and then enjoys shoulder massages and belly rubs after his long walks.

Blair, Catahoula leopard dog and American bulldog mix
Blair is a female Catahoula leopard dog and American bulldog mix currently residing at PawsCo.
Blair will do best with an owner who has time to bond with her. She will need a home free of other dogs, cats and kids. She is vaccinated and spayed, and she's mastered her house-training etiquette.
Notes on Blair:
For a youngster, I’m pretty laid-back and loveable. In fact, my foster mom will tell you that I love to snuggle so much that I often try to be a lap dog. Apparently, I’m too big now. But there’s nothing I love more than being with my people, whether I’m lying next to you or down near your feet. I adore your affection. And while I’m relaxed around the house, I love going for walks and do need my daily exercise to keep me happy.

I’m all in when it comes to most things in life, especially playing and napping. I like to run, romp and chase things in the backyard. Then I’ll power down for a good snuggle session on the couch. Do you love hugs? I give the best, biggest hugs.
