Featured Dog

Trogdor is a 1.5 year old large breed mixed pup looking for a comfy couch to call his own. His story started when his Mom came to our rescue heavily pregnant, introducing Trogdor to this world. He was adopted at 10 weeks old and returned to us over a year later. Unfortunately there was a toddler in the house that did not know how to behave around Trogdor. He fell on him causing Trogdor to give a correction that did not break the skin. Understandably, Trogdor was likely scared and possibly in pain for a moment, and reacted the only way he knew how. 

Trogdor received a professional behavioral evaluation showing that he is a great a dog. He was eager to learn and please, and did great around other dogs and strangers. Trogdor has since been placed in a foster home where he is now thriving. He has met other kids and done great, and currently lives with dogs and cats happily. He does have a fenced in yard and that makes him happy as well. Trogdor had problems adjusting when he first came to us, and was placed on some anxiety medication. We do believe he can be weaned off of this as soon as he makes the transition to a new home. However we would  hate to take him off them now just to have him need them when he changes homes again. He will come with any leftover prescription of the meds. 

Trogdor is currently loose in the house during the work day and thriving. He has other doggy friends in the house that help him adjust, and he loves cuddling with his toys on the couch. He is 100% vetted and healthy and comes with all of his vet history as well. His adoption fee has also been waived. 

Trogdor is a fantastic dog that just deserves a chance. He is not difficult and he is super loving. He is around 75 pounds. A DNA test was done on his mom which showed Chow, Husky, Pit, Boxer, Lab, and some fancy other things. 

To add Trogdor to your family or to meet him, please send us a detailed application from the Adoption tab above.

Puppies Are Worth Saving Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit dog rescue based out of Forest Hill, Maryland. Puppies Are Worth Saving Inc. (PAWS Rescue) was started in February of 2013, and we became a 501(c)3 in January of 2015. All donations, fees, and proceeds go directly to helping our dogs.

PAWS is ran by a group of volunteers that are dedicated to saving the lives of dogs and puppies. We are open to any breed and as long as we have room, we do not say no. We will try to find a specific breed or age of dog in a shelter as an alternative to someone buying from a breeder. We believe that all Puppies Are Worth Saving.

PAWS pulls dogs and puppies from dangerous situations and places them in loving, caring, forever homes. We work with a group of dedicated fosters to ensure that the dogs are getting the love and care that they need. We will adopt to any location that is within a 4 hour drive, as long as the adopter can come meet and pick up the dogs.
