Meet Chisel (Pet ID: 36811369)

Color: White / Black

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Large

 

“What's up, I'm Chisel, and I'm 4 years old (but I don't look a day over 2). I spend most of my time working out, which you can totally tell by looking at me…..I'm a fun-loving guy, ready to jump in and do whatever you want to do, as long as what you want to do is one of these things: Logging some miles on the old FitBit and then posting about it

Traveling, with the wind in my hair (but not too much wind because: my hair)

Taking pictures that highlight my pecs *winks*

Hiking, but I mostly do it for the check-ins

Chillin at home, binge-watching whatever's on Netflixs.

I'm also an excellent kisser. You can ask around.”

 

Hickory (Pet ID: 36414672)

Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix

Age: 3y 7m Gender: Male

Color: Chocolate / White

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Large

 

“Run like they left the gate open...that's what everyone said...so, I DID. Boy, was that the wrong move! Once I stopped frolicking in freedom, I didn't know where I was anymore. A nice man brought me to this safe place. I guess I must have run a loooong way, because my Dad didn't find me. I've been kinda sad about that. The folks here are nice and all, but I miss my soft beds, the tasty treats from the table and walks through the neighborhood. Do you think you can help me find these things again?”

Pets of the Week

Porsha (Pet ID: 16019289)

Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix

Age: 6y 11m Gender: Female

Color: Brown / White

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Large

 

“Hello, friends! My name is Porsha and I’m a laid-back girl, about 6 years old. I’m willing to look past your imperfections because I need someone to see past mine.

I’ve been described as sweet, laid back, and loving. I know a lot of dogs that want to run all day, but my happy place is sunbathing on a pillow. I still love to play and run, but cuddles are more my speed. Because my front arm doesn’t function properly, some folks see me as damaged, but they don’t really see Me. Give me a chance to prove to you that – even on three legs – I can jump right into your heart.”

 

 

Petey (Pet ID: 37281120)

Breed: Saint Bernard / Mix

Age: 7y 4m Gender: Male

Color: White / Red

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Large

 

“Hey guys, I'm Petey, and I equally love food and being petted. See, we've got something in common already. I absolutely LOVE: Learning new tricks (cuz I gets treeeeeats!), Playing with my doggo friends, Being petted (I see that as a win-win for both of us, because my fur is REALLY soft) I can be a big doof and the life of the party, but I can also be chill, especially if there's ear scratching involved. I will never turn down a treat, and that makes me a fast learner. I would get along great with a doggie roommate! Come check me out (can you like pick up some lunch on your way here?).”

Breed: Retriever, Labrador / Mix

Age: 5y 10m Gender: Male

Color: Cream / Brown

Size: Large

Earl Haggard (Pet ID: 35422392)

Color: Black / White

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Large

 

“...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!”
