“...and I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee, a place where even squares can have a ball..."

Okay, so I'm not really from Muskogee and I'm not really a square either...but I sure know how to chase a ball...or a rope toy...or a stuffie, I especially love my stuffies! I can toss them up in the air, run around with them, anything but eat them-you don't eat your friends! I have remarkable manners-I walk very well on a leash, I know to sit for treats and I never jump on people. I get along well with others I have met here and though I am grateful for my friends here, I'd really rather have a family of my own that will shower me in affection and playtime. I'm pretty small and don't take up much space, so if you'd like to snuggle with me on the sofa after a long play session, That would be delightful.

Come on into PAWS and check me out. Let's blow this Popsicle stand together!”

Pets of the Week

Pace (34187051)

Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix

Age: 5y 2m Gender: Male

Color: Black / White

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Large

No Cats

“Pace also goes by Pacer, Pacer Wacer, Pacey Wacey and Boo Man. If you've visited PAWS in the last year, you've seen Pace, you've met Pace or you've even attempted to take him out for a walk. (I say "attempted" because he usually bolts and takes a jog around the shelter before being caught. You chase him, he runs more. It's the most fun game in the world to him and he will run forever.). To start with, Pace is not your average dog. He's smarter than most people, a free spirit in every meaning of the term and he's truly one of a kind. Pace is goofy and full of life. He's about 5-years-old but romps and plays like a pup. He LOVES to run and is often referred to as a boomerang, because no matter how far away he runs.. he comes back! He gives kisses when asked, knows sit, if you're lucky he'll talk to you and you may even get a smile out of him. Pace has been at PAWS since December 9, 2016. Pace was a blood donor in the past few weeks and saved the life of a dog who had ingested rat poison before being found as a stray. While Pace and I didn't start off on the greatest terms, he sensed my hesitancy with him and took advantage of it, he's now my big buddy. Pace would love a home with an active family, and even a laid back fur sibling. Please no cats, he's not a fan ๐Ÿ˜‰ Pace is food motivated and knows how to sit.” 

Blanca (34932572)

Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix

Age: 8y 10m Gender: Female

Color: Black / White

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Medium

No Other Dogs

 

“Blanca is a tender little girl. She absolutely delights in belly rubs and will even flop onto her back when you approach her kennel. She walks very well on a leash. She is selective about her treats, but will gobble them up when given the right ones. She is an easy going mature girl that would prefer not to share her "nest" on the couch with anyone other than her belly-rubbing partners.”
