Good mornin’ from the ‘extra large’ girl as they describe me here at RAWL. I weigh in at about 72 pounds. The RAWL staff thinks I could be a Brindle Mountain Cur, though they were told I’m a Boxer/Mastiff mix. Brindle Mountain Curs originated in the Appalachians back in pioneer days. Well, n…

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 thi…

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-beha…

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 …

Hi, everyone, 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…

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 …

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.

Hi, all. My name is Sherman. 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…

They can’t figure out here at RAWL what breeds of dog my parents were. Maybe a Lab mix, maybe a mix 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 bi…

Hello, Rapplanders. I’m Moriah and I am looking for a home. I’m only 4 months old, and weigh about 20 pounds. When I grow up I’ll weigh 40 to 55 pounds. I’m a Plott Hound mix, mainly Plott. Plotts are one of the least known dogs in the U.S. even though we are the state dog of North Carolina.…

Hello, all. I’m the RAWL Dog this week and my name is Pumpkin. 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 year…

Gentle and sweet are words the RAWL people call me, along with my name, Chex. I am just 6 months old, weigh about 40 pounds (going to get a bit bigger, of course), and am a hound — probably a mix of coonhound and American foxhound. And I may have some July foxhound in me: that’s a sub-type o…
