Police Pup Wednesday

bowser & georgie

Assistant Chief Trask & Officer Hannigan stopped by Prairie Paws to spend a little time with Bowser (A145089) & Georgie (A146659). Bowser is a neutered 3 year old, Rottweiler mix whose been looking for a home since July 27th 2016 when he arrived as a stray. Georgie is an unaltered 7 week old orange tabby, domestic short haired who came in as a stray on September 17th. Bowser likes to go on car rides, lay on the couch watching Netflix, and to give kisses to the elderly as well as baby kittens. He has been waiting 2.5 months for the right person to actually look into his eyes and see him, and know they can’t go another day without him. Georgie on the other hand, is an independent little guy who may think he’s part dog. If you go to pick him up, he already starts purring before you even touch him. He thinks it’s cute when you hold him, to bite your cheek then lick your nose with that sandpaper tongue to say sorry. He’s still a little underweight and too young for adoption, so we are looking for a foster home for Georgie (or any of the countless others like Georgie who come in and need a safe, quiet, place to grow strong and healthy before they can be put up for adoption). If you are interested in either Bowser or fostering, you can call the shelter at 972-237-8575 or stop by to visit Bowser or fill out a foster application at 2222 W Warrior Trl Grand Prairie, TX 75052.

Firefighter Friday

Lena (A144579) & Prince (A109019) stopped by Station 1 to play on the fire trucks with Firefighter Stafford. Lena & Prince are an 8 year old pair. Lena is a spayed Border Collie mix while Prince is a neutered Chihuahua/Terrier mix. These guys have been looking for a home together since October 1st 2016. Lena knows sit, stay and shake. She loves treats but is not very interested in toys. Even though she is 8, she has the energy of a puppy and loves to play and run around. Prince on the other hand is more laid back. He loves to lay in your arms like a baby and be rocked. He is mellow and not very vocal. Lena is one of the few dogs he not only likes, but loves. We would love to see this duo be adopted into the same home and be able to stay together!

Midnight (A146198) is a 3-year old female. She is a black, domestic long haired. She is altered. Midnight arrived at Prairie Paws as a stray on August 31th, 2016. Hey, It's Midnight. No not 12 in the morning silly, I'm Midnight and I am here to tell you a little bit about me. I love receiving attention, I just want to play is all. I may be 3 years old but I can still play as if I were a kitten. I enjoy the occasional back scratches. I am very curious and will follow the noises I hear. I also like to go where ever you go. I just want to make sure you are being safe! I can't wait to find my new family. If you would like to visit with Midnight, stop by the shelter during regular business hours!

145732- Leia

Leia (A145732) is a 8-month old, brown brindle Pit Bull mix. She is altered. Leia arrived at Prairie Paws as a stray on August 16th, 2016. Hi, I'm Leia! I love to play, and go for walks. I also love to play in the water, I enjoy laying in the pool to cool off. I do have a lot of energy, but as soon as we go play. I fly like the wind chasing after anything you throw! I can be picky when it comes to meeting new furry friends, but I did have a play date with one of the dogs here at the shelter and it went well. We had lots of fun.
