About Cricket

Adoption Fee: $275

(DOB 5/14/21)  Due to Cricket’s young age, she has not yet been spayed.  For this reason we are only considering local placement (within 1 hour drive time of Wake Forest NC).  

As a hound/terrier mix, Cricket is a sweet, smart spunky girl.  She has a little mousy nose and the cutest ears--one flops over and one stands up. For such a little girl, she sure does live her life large! She doesn't let anything hold her back!

She loves to play chase with her brother, she adores toys and is always happy to greet her people.  She has soooo much energy that she needs a solid fenced yard to open up in and run her zoomies.  Another playful dog in her home is a must to keep her and you both happy.  If no fenced yard, she needs an active family that is committed to walking her regularly. Too much idle time will lead to mischief.

She is a smart cookie too. She is working on her sit command and pretty much has it down, but she is easily distracted and loses focus quickly. She has a cute protective bark when she hears or sees someone or something she isn't familiar with. It’s an endearing trademark but doesn’t make her a good apartment dog.  No cats for this girl either, they bring out her terrier spirit.

She is a typical puppy in that she loves to play, play, play with toys, people and other pups. She will need a family ready to take on the puppy stages and keep her both entertained and using positive reinforcement training to build her social skills and boundaries. 

She is in the process of losing her puppy teeth so chewing is a prime time activity.  Everything goes in her mouth—fingers, toes, nose—and play mouthing and nipping is constant, so she is looking for a home with kids 10 and older.  It also calls for you to keep your toys, shoes and cords out of her reach.  

She is working hard on her potty training.  She prefers to go outside,  but she hasn't figured out how to signal when she needs to go--we are so close. The good news is that she is very good about going on the puppy pad indoors, but sometimes her aim is slightly off.  She has taken to the leash very easily, but she will still need to the leash training in her future.  All of these things are part of the fun pieces of having a puppy and helping them learn.

Are you prepared for all the joy a puppy can bring as well as the dedication to give them the attention they deserve?  Then fill out an application. As part of Cricket’s $275 adoption fee, she will be spayed, microchipped, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.  In addition to the adoption fee, a $100 spay/neuter deposit is due at the time of adoption.  The deposit will be refunded once the puppy has been altered.  If you have questions about this puppy, you can email dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt her, you can fill in an online application for her under adoption profile on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org.

I’m ready for my family!!!  I will make someone a great active companion for walking and other fun outdoor activities! I absolutely LOVE to ride in the car and go on adventures,  I do the cutesiest little chatter when I’m really excited. I’m still young, so I still have lots to learn!  And I really like positive reinforcement training and learning new things - I am quick study but like any puppy need continued practice. My ideal home would be one with a fenced in yard for me to run and explore.  I would love having another playful medium-large dog in the house, or going to doggie day care!  Aspen is best suited to an experienced person, someone to keep her busy and continue her training! She had some resource guarding as a small puppy so continued training would be perfect for her! She will not be adopted into a home with children. She is currently living with a cat, who is very submissive with dogs, but she does fixate on him. So either a home with no cats or a cat willing to stand their ground would be best. (DOB 2/20/21)  As part of Aspen's $275 adoption fee, she is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. If you have questions about this sweet girl, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Aspen, you can fill in an online application for her under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org show less

Bruno goes to the office each day with his foster mom and furry sibling and settles right in!  Do you have a job you can take your dog with you to work, well Bruno is ready to "apply"!  To get to work, he is awesome in the car and loves to get right in and go.  He will be great motivation during your work day to get up and take a break, get some fresh air, and go for a walk. He would be a great ambassador for your office since he loves everyone he meets! He loves being outside.  Bruno could be an apartment pup and does not require a fence as long as his adoptive family is active and will get him out and about throughout the day.  Bruno doesn't want to be couped up or left alone all day (in the process of crate training)...that would be too boring for him. He is good on a leash and loves to go for daily walks.  Bruno likes playing with people and other pups. He enjoys playing fetch and will bring the ball back, tug-o-war, romping and running with 2-legged and 4-legged friends and playing with a variety of toys. So a family with other dogs would be nice.  He is polite and shares is toys nicely, too.  He is a happy boy with a joyful personality!  Bruno loves his people and is loyal...he promises to love you more than you love him!! Bruno is a bit of a ladies man or at least he seems to prefer them over men.  He loves being with his people and getting attention.  He likes to snuggle and be next to you but not necissarily on top of you. He never gets tired of love, attention, belly rubs and being petted. He has the cutest pink belly with spots!! He is well behaved and obediant.  He is treat motivated so continued positive reinforecment training will be good for Bruno.  Bruno loves meal time and gobble it up.  His drinking is a little sloppy but cute. Meet Bruno!  He is a 1.5-year-old, 65.5lb male Hound/Pit mix.  Bruno, unfortunately, was not on heartworm prevention and is heartworm positive. He can be adopted locally (within 1 hour of Wake Forest) so we can continue his heartworm treatmeant.  Our rescue will complete his heartworm treatment. As part of Bruno's $250 adoption fee, he is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. If you have questions about this sweet boy, you can email Dogteam@pawsforlifenc.org.  If you wish to adopt Bruno, you can fill in an online application for him under the Adopt a Pet Tab on our website:  www.pawsforlifenc.org show less
