Hi there! My name is Sav! I am a friendly, happy boy with a great big, contagious smile. I weigh 58 lbs and I'm looking for an active family who wants to take walks with me. Perhaps we could even go hiking or camping sometimes. I enjoy jogging and running, playing in the fenced yard and sprawling in the sunshine. So, I think I will be happiest with an outdoorsy human. I am learning about dog toys. I've never had any until now, so I am still choosing my favorites. My heart is huge and I just need a loving person to give me a home and all the love I can handle. Please give me a chance! Apply today! Adoption fee: $80. Adopt a pair: $120.

So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.Examples:Identify these mixed breed dogs (pdf)Now, compare these canine DNA results with the survey responses to see that dog breeds cannot be visually identified, not even by the experts.Adoption Process: Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
If you have any questions or would like to adopt Sav, please reach out to the adoption group directly. PetSmart Charities does not facilitate the adoption process. Thank you.
