Meet Gizmo, your new best friend!

My name is Gizmo and I weigh in at 11 pounds. I’m a Shih Tzu/Chihuahua Mix. I am not a children dog — period. However, I love most other dogs and especially love cats. I have an issue with being over-protective of my home but the RAWL staff are working with me on a daily basis to improve this. […]

Meet Wesley, your new best friend

My name’s Wesley and I’m a young American foxhound. I got lost and was traveling a gravel road when a really nice lady picked me up, got me warm, and then got me to RAWL. They call me a “mush” here. I guess that means “really nice guy.” I’m 1-2 years old and weigh 70 pounds, and am well-behaved, medium energy, and fine with other dogs and cats. […]

One happy Dude

It’s been said that rescuing one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog the world will change forever. Just ask Dude, climbing here into the arms of rescuer Amanda Gray of Amissville. When Amanda, a horse veterinarian in nearby Marshall, rescued Dude just over a year ago his ears and tail were cropped and one eye was dilated. […]

Meet Harrison Ford, your new best friend

Yep, I’m a good lookin’ movie star of sorts. Though I’m much younger than my namesake — only 1 year old and weigh 55-60 pounds. I put on some of those pounds here at RAWL ‘cause I arrived a way-too-skinny stray. I’m a foxhound and as such need a fenced yard. Though through the years hounds have been bred to hunt we make great pets — loving, great fun, love walks and adapt well to a home. […]

Meet your new best friend, KC

My name is KC and I am a typical puppy, that is to say cute, cute, cute! I am a young, happy girl, about 10 to 12 weeks old, and a German Shepherd/Pitbull mix. I’m very social and love other dogs, cats, and of course humans. I’m close to being housebroken and am working hard at it. If you’d like to meet me I’d like to meet you. Please come visit and ask for “Cutie Pie.” […]

Meet Holly, your new best friend

My nickname here at RAWL is “Sweet Goober” and I am a Redbone Coonhound. My real name is Holly. I am 1 year old and weigh 45 pounds. I’m gentle, affectionate, and happy; love toys, kids, dogs and cats, and really want to please my owner(s). Hunting hounds — coonhounds, foxhounds, and others — adjust well to being pets. […]

Meet Mac, your new best friend

Hi, name’s Mac. I’m a youngster, an all-white and cool-lookin’ Pit Bull Terrier, 7 months old and currently weighing fewer than 50 pounds. I came to RAWL as a stray, though I was lucky ‘cause in my previous life I was loved and cared for and was taught to sit and give paw. […]

Meet Sherman, your new best friend

I’m an Australian Cattle Dog mix. The RAWL people aren’t quite sure where the ears came from but they think they’re kinda cute. I’m less than 2 years old and weigh about 45 pounds. My breed was originally developed by Australian settlers to handle herds of cattle on really big ranches. We are loyal, intelligent, active and sturdy. […]

Meet Kai, your new best friend?

I’m a Lab mix, maybe involving some sort of sight hound (like greyhounds for example). And to add to the puzzle my voice is similar to a Husky’s. Let’s just call me a “Yellow Dog” with a big heart (as well as a big smile!). […]

Meet Petey, he’s pretty!

My name is Petey and I’m an American Bulldog. I’m 2 to 3 years old and have very cool black and white markings. The staff here at RAWL call me “da bomb.” I am super sweet, well-behaved, and good with other dogs and love humans. […]

Meet Pumpkin, your new best friend

You can call me Pun’kin if you want to. The RAWL staff tell me I’m a Chihuahua mix but I’m tellin’ ya there’s got to be terrier in there somewhere. Anyway I’m pretty teensy, weighing in at about 5 pounds. I’m a youngster — 3 years old, and a happy and outgoing ball of energy. […]

Meet Corey, your new best friend

I’m a 1-to 2-year-old Cattle Dog and was found as a stray back in May. Some people found me but they weren’t allowed to have dogs where they live. Meanwhile I’m helping out ‘cause I like having a job. I’m sweet and laid back so I will fit easily into my new abode. I’ve been introduced to girl dogs and really like them. […]

Meet Cannon, you’re new best friend

Hi, Rapplanders. My name is Cannon and I’m a 3- to 4-year-old male German Shepherd. I’ve wondered why they gave me the name Cannon but you never know around here. I came here ‘cause my owners got a divorce and it was a bummer. But onwards. […]
