We are so grateful to her foster mom, Melissa, for taking such good care of our Alissa for many many months. Without foster parents like her - so many many of our dogs would still be living on the streets, or in neglectful homes, or worse.
Here are some pictures of Alissa getting on transport. We have high hopes that her next stop will be her last. Good luck Alissa!

Here is the latest update from Gibson's mom:
Just sending some more pics of Gibson. He is such a great boy. Very well behaved in public, and boy does he love to take naps. I think he out snores my husband! Gibson and Buddy get along great and love playing together. He is definitley a mommas boy. -- Chris

Last year, not too long after arriving, Lady Bird jumped the 4 foot chain link fence and was mauled by two dogs, one of whom continues to live up the street from her current foster home. Physically, she has recovered but emotionally and mentally, she is tormented daily by and reminded of the event (it has caused her to be more unstable than she would be and is away from Silverwalk). Bobbie, who runs Silverwalk, dearly cares for Lady Bird, having gone above and beyond working and loving this amazing dog, but her fear behaviors (which were present before this attack and have now been exacerbated by it), have become detrimental to the smaller dogs at Silverwalk as well as her own emotional health. When she has been in town, away from the neighborhood, she has been much more relaxed and outgoing according to Bobbie. Bobbie once emailed, "they say elephants never forget- well Lady Bird should then be an elephant!"

Josie has headed to Maine to find her new home. She is in foster care with another PAWS dog - ABBY. We could not be happier for her.
Here are some pictures of Josie starting her journey North. Josie - we hope someone with a big, soft couch adopts you!
Please enjoy these pictures of MORRIS (who has been in boarding for a year...yey!), DAVID, BOBBY, TARA and TESS saying their goodbyes to the PAWS volunteers.

This is a super sweet dog who loves to lay in your lap and receive belly rubs. He needs a patient person to shower him with love and affection. He does fall at times (mainly when excited where he gets ahead of himself and may bump into things), so he needs some type of padding (carpet, etc.) rather than slippery floors and consistency with furniture placement. He has to be leash walked until he heals completely (which should not be too much longer), otherwise he will take off like a deer (he literally prances and will jump 4 feet in the air). Percy deserves a loving home with a fenced in yard. He wants more than anything to be part of the family. Please call Allison at 901-240-9848 if you can provide him a loving forever home!
Daisy got along with everyone in her previous home (sadly, the family has fallen on rough times and can not keep her) and is adjusting to her new foster home with Teresa (who happens to be fostering Mojo and Lucie too). Teresa said she is being an angel so far (quiet as a mouse- just checking things out) and that she will slowly acclimate her to her pack(s) soon! Daisy loves belly rubs too! We hope to find her a forever home soon! Call Allison at 901-240-9848 if you would like to meet her!
