Fozzie's Story

What’s sweeter than candy and cute as can be? That would be the oh-so-adorable Fozzie!  With his perky ears and curled tail, Fozzie is a super cute boy!  His fur really is so soft and Fozzie certainly enjoys having his human friends give him tons of head and back scratches and pretty much any petting and cuddling he can get! Fozzie came to PAWS all the way from California and was brought to us when his original owners could no longer care for him.  Of course, Fozzie is quite sad and confused by this sudden change, but he is a resilient boy and is hoping his perfect forever family finds him soon!  Once they find him, he will love taking nice long walks through the neighborhood and hopes they’ll have a steady supply of chewy treats.  Those are his favorites!  If you are heading off for a ride, Fozzie would love to be your co-pilot!  He loves to stick his head out the window and feel the wind zoom on past!

Fozzie would do best in a home with an experienced owner and one without small children.  Fozzie adores spending time with his human friends so so much that he doesn’t like to be away from them for long.  He would love to find a family who is home throughout the day so he can receive all the belly rubs and treats his tiny heart desires!  Fozzie has done well with other dogs during his time here at PAWS and would enjoy having an appropriate and friendly canine buddy in his future home.  Fozzie is currently enjoying a vacation away from the shelter in a wonderful foster home where he loves all of the attention and love he is getting!  His foster parents describe him an affectionate and gentle boy who loves going for walks and enjoys munching on treats!  He loves his kibble too, but treats are at the very top of his favorite list!  Fozzie’s foster family also reports that he already knows a few basic commands and is fully housebroken!  He is such a sweet and super friendly boy who hopes he can find someone who will be able to see past his quirks and accept him for the lovebug he is!   Once you meet him, he is sure to steal your heart and make you fall madly in love with him.  If you’re hoping for a dog who is eager to be right by your side at all times and a sweet, little buddy to accompany you on all your adventures, then you have to meet Fozzie!  He is ready to find his forever home!  Email us at to learn how you can see this special boy in person!
