Our Featured Pet...


Rumor is an adorable 1 to 2 year old Boxer mix. We know she's a Boxer mix because we also had her mother Demi who is a Boxer. Mom has been adopted now and we aren't sure who dad was although we suspect he was a cattle dog mix of some kind based on those crazy ears and her body build. .   Rumor is just as sweet as she can be. She has never met a stranger. She and her mom Demi were seized in the field for neglect by animal control and both were in rough shape when they arrived.

Rumor gets along well with most large dogs but can be selective with who she wants to play with. She does seem cautious and nervous around small dogs so she'd do best in a home with larger dogs only..

She is a sweet, affectionate energetic dog that is just waiting for her forever home!

If you are interested in Rumor, please complete our online adoption application or contact us.


We are pleased to announce that regular adoption events will be held at our facility the 1st and 3rd SUNDAY of each good weather month from 12pm to 4pm. The adoption events will be a joint effort with several other rescue groups so there will be not only the wonderful PAWS dogs but many other wonderful rescue dogs from other prominent rescue groups to consider adopting. We hope to see you there! We are located at 7833 Wornall in Kansas City Missouri. We are located inside the A Dog's Fun Playce facility.
