Meet Nyx

Nyx is a fun-sized girl at 35lbs and still has a ton of pep in her step at 6 years old. She is a very sweet dog that is looking for a family that will stick by her no matter what.

Nyx has been well trained on traditional commands with hand gestures and is fully potty trained. She currently lives with a couple of toddlers but sometimes they can make her nervous, so she would do best with older kids (10+). She also does fine with most dogs but would prefer to be the only one in the home. Nyx tends to be shy in public places, but will be more than happy to go on a walk with you anywhere or play fetch!

When her people are gone for the day, Nyx likes to nap on her fluffy bed or entertain herself with toys in the living room. She would love a yard to play in but most of all, she wants a family that will give her a stable home for the rest of her years.

Nyx is spayed, heartworm negative, and UTD on vaccines. Think she's the one for you? Apply to meet her today!


If you are interested in meeting and/or adopting, the first step is to please visit our website to complete an application and read all of our FAQs:

**Please do not use the "Introduce Yourself" feature. The information needed to determine if you might be a match for one of our animals can only be found on our application. An inquiry, questions or introduction through Petfinder is NOT an application. All known details about our animals are posted on their profile and updated daily. Other info would be discussed in detail with the foster during the application review process. Due to the number of introductions/questions received (hundreds daily) we ask you submit an application on our website (that application can be used for any dog with Take Paws Rescue).

The adoption fee for adult dogs covers age appropriate vaccinations, microchip, spay/neuter if not yet performed, heartworm test & appropriate heartworm treatment by the rescue's vet. All dogs in our care are also kept up-to-date on HW/Flea Prevention. Please see our website for more information.

2023 Adoption Fee Scale for non-benefactor animals:
Puppies under 12 months - $350
Dogs over 12 months - $250

For additional information, including the adoption process and our adoption fee scale for all our adoptable pets, see our FAQs page:

*Any breed labels used by Take Paws Rescue, its employees/volunteers, or on vet records provided cannot be guaranteed. Breed labels are given based on information obtained during intake and/or best guesses based on appearance and/or temperament of the dogs and Take Paws Rescue gives no assurance to the accuracy of these labels. Labels are necessary for postings to many animal networking sites, such as Pet Finder, and are no way a guarantee. Additionally, exact age and potential size cannot be guaranteed.

*Take Paws Rescue saves dogs from high-kill shelters in Southeast Louisiana, owner surrenders, and discarded dogs with uncertain futures. All of our puppies live in foster homes where they are socialized, and well cared for. An application will be required to make sure it’s the perfect match!
