Thinking about adopting a dog? Have kids? READ THIS!!

Robin Bennett explains the right way to supervise dogs and kids. It's so much more than just "keeping an eye on things." The post is a great mini-tutorial for people who don't know how to "read" a dog’s body language.

Help Talulah!

Talulah is a loving, friendly, outgoing, and beautiful English Bull Dog found roaming a very busy street in Bridgeport, CT. She was brought to PAWS by a good samaritan after she followed him home one day.

Sweet & goofy Talulah

What PAWS' vet discovered when examining Talulah was shocking: She has severe skin and ear infections, dry eye, and huge mammary masses, a result of not being spayed. These masses need to be removed as soon as possible; until the surgery and biopsies are performed, we won't know if they are malignant or what course of treatment she might need.

There's a lot going on for this lovely lady and the first steps are to clear up her ear and skin infections. Next, she'll be spayed, the masses will be removed, and biopsies will be performed.

While we await the total cost estimate from the vet, we know that we need to raise AT LEAST $2,000 to help offset her initial medical and surgical needs.

To donate - and ANY amount is greatly appreciated - please follow this link. To ensure that your donation goes to Talulah's medical/surgical needs, please select the "COSMO FUND"as your "Program Designation" when donating.
Hey, you wanna cuddle? I've got room on my blankie!

Please help us spread the word about Talulah far and wide! She was obviously someone's dog at some point, dumped on the streets when they couldn't or wouldn't care for her when she needed them most. Talulah is a loving and sweet dog who needs our help!

Cody - Update

Remember Cody, a gorgeous dog I posted about a few days ago? HE'S GOING HOME TODAY! I'm so happy for him. Cody is a sweet, loving, mellow dog and I would have scooped him up for myself if I could. He also sits like a frog, which is pretty entertaining.

I stopped by the shelter last night to say goodbye, share some leftover chicken, and tell him how much I'd miss him. It's always happy and sad to say goodbye - happy because they've found their forever home, and sad because - well, I really, really love this dog! He didn't seem to be as interested in saying goodbye to me as he was in saying hello to the chicken. Oh, well. I'm still gonna miss him, even if he'll only miss my treats!

Beauty, brains, LOVE! Lanie has all three!

Lanie is mom to Lucy & Ethel, two adorable pit bull mixes. So far, only Ethel has found her forever home; Lucy and Lanie are still waiting patiently.

Lanie looks like she has some Boxer in her. Of course, without doing a DNA test, we really can't say for sure. But what we do know is that she's a big cotton ball - soft and cuddly!

Lanie is about 8 years old, but you'd never know it. She loves most other dogs (a calmer dog would be best), children, and adults. She enjoys going on walks, sitting by your side, playing fetch and tug with her rope toy, and running in the yard with her PAWS dog pals. She's great in the car and is a wonderful co-pilot.
Are we there yet?!

Lanie is housebroken, spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchipped.

If you're looking for a great companion, Lanie is waiting for you! Read more about her here or apply to adopt Lanie.
