Palm is a 2 year old boy surrendered to the city shelter because his owner was working long hours and couldn't care for him anymore. He is housebroken, good in the car, and knows a few commands. Palm was evaluated by one of our trainers, Marty from Blackdog K9 Training. Marty feels Palm would do best in a home with German Shepherd experience. He stated Palm responded well to obedience work and has great ball drive. Palm is strong willed and requires an adopter committed to his continued training. At this time, he needs to be in a home as the only pet and with no children.
Hercules A. is a 13 month old pup that was surrendered to the shelter when his owner couldn't afford treatment for demodex mange. Hercules has made a full recovery and is now looking for his forever home! He is a big boy at nearly 100 lbs. Hercules loves to play with other dogs and is okay with dog savvy cats. We are looking for an experienced adopter for Hercules. He has a barrier issue when the crate door is closed that needs to be worked on. Our trainer is confident this issue can be worked through and says Hercules is a great dog! Hercules knows several commands including sit, down, shake, speak, heel, come, and up. He lived with children previously. Hercules requires a home with a 6ft fence since he can jump over a 4ft fence when motivated. Hercules would made a great agility partner. He is food motivated and loves to learn.
Angus was found on the streets of a smaller town outside of Doha. The man who found him said he had seen him wandering for a few days and he was really friendly, but particularly sad and lonely looking. He's a younger boy who has lots of energy and would make a great companion for an active person or family.
Sasha K. (now called Nala) was originally adopted from GSR. Her owner passed unexpectedly and she is now homeless. We urgently need a foster or adoptive home for her. Sasha was found chained up back in April 2014 when she first came into rescue. Despite her sad past, she is a very calm, well mannered girl. We estimate her to be about 6 years old. Sasha was previously fostered with a cat and children. Nala does not want to share her special person at this time with another canine.
Chica is a 3 year old female that was found in an alley in Chicago. She was brought into the shelter but her owners never reclaimed her. She is a very sweet, friendly girl. Chica is not used to other dogs and would do best as an only pet. Chica knows the basics and would benefit from continued training. She is not used to crate but is learning it's a good thing! Chica doesn't like to be left alone for long hours, so her ideal home is one with owners that are home often.
Wren came to Paws Rescue Qatar after she was found outside of one of the schools running on the road with another dog. Some concerned parents grabbed both dogs and contacted Paws Rescue Qatar for help. They were taken to the vet for a check up, and Paws took them on, as the people that rescued them had nowhere for them to go, and could not keep them in boarding indefinitely. We advertised them as found but no one came forward to claim them. Wren is high energy, and needs space to run. She is friendly towards people and male and female dogs and loves to play! She needs some basic obedience training. She is very sweet an affectionate and would make a lovely companion for an active owner or family.
22 month old Reggae was surrendered to the shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. Reggae did not live with other animals or children in his previous home. He seems to do well so far with other dogs. Reggae is a big, strong boy that will require an experienced adoptive home. Reggae is being fostered by two dog trainers so he can learn how to be a well mannered boy! He is very sweet and playful. His favorite game is tug of war. Reggae is not used to a crate but is housebroken. He is very intelligent and has a ton of potential.

He is a very friendly, easy going boy that gets along well with all people including children. Harry is great with other dogs and does ok with cats. He walks nicely on leash and is crate trained. Harry will made a wonderful family dog to a lucky family.
Alaska is a gorgeous solid black pup born on July 20th, 2016. Her owner surrendered her to animal control because his landlord wouldn't allow big dogs. She has not lived with other animals or children. Alaska knows up, sit, and stay on command. Her previous owner stated she is a very loving dog. Alaska is not used to a crate but she is housebroken. She enjoys going for walks and playing with toys. Alaska's ideal home will be one that has German Shepherd experience and will take her to positive reinforcement classes to continue her training/socialization.
Samson was brought in Chicago Animal Control as a stray but his owners never came for him. He is estimated to be about 2 years old. Samson is a gorgeous long coat that weighs 85 lbs. He is an easy going, sweet boy. Samson doesn't seem to know any commands, so he'd benefit from positive training classes. He is great with other dogs and did well meeting a cat. Samson hasn't been around children but we imagine he would do well. He is very good in the car and loves to go for walks.
