​BEAUTIFUL  seven year old Nala is looking for her new forever home! Nala wandered up to a good Samaritan's home in early July and despite all efforts to find her family, no one came to look for her.  This is just SO difficult to understand because this AWESOME girl is just about PERFECT!  She loves people and the other dogs in her foster home, is house trained, does not need to be crated and rides really well in the car!  She is still a little nervous in new spaces on a leash because she is not used to it and will bark a little.  According to her foster mom, she does snore-lol! Nala is fully vetted and weighs 90 lbs but does not jump on you when she greets you.

FOSTER OR ADOPTER NEEDED!  Meet BEAUTIFUL Harley!  This fantastic girl, born 12/25/18, is full of energy and absolutely BALL CRAZY!  We are thinking she might be a great fit as a search and rescue partner,   maybe a fly ball or dock diving dog!  She is also great on her commands (although her butt never stays on the ground very long on her "sit" as the tail is wagging so hard!) Harley does jump up and is crate trained and house trained.  She likes other dogs and plays well with other dogs if they aren't dominate.  She would do best in a home with a more laid back dog that can handle her energy.  Harley absolutely needs a fenced yard as she is pretty strong on the leash.  She is appropriate for homes with children over 12 years old.  With the right exercise, this girl is going to be an AMAZING best friend for her new family.

ADOPTER NEEDED!!  Meet Ranger!  This cute 9 month old pup was an owner surrender, adopted during covid and then dumped when he got bigger and had not been trained. When he first arrived at the foster home he had not been socialized with humans and didn't want anyone to pet him but now he loves it! He is a big smushy shadow pup,who just wants to be near you and give kisses. Ranger was also very nervous in his busy foster home so we have started him on some medication to help him acclimate and stay calm. He is incredibly smart and has learned so much with his foster, but will need to continue his training with an experienced person or a professional trainer to help him be all he can be.  Ranger currently knows sit, down (lie down), off (if he jumps or gets on the couch), leave it, and come. He is also proficient in the dog door. He is still working on jumping up, being mouthy, and the command "drop" (his propensity to grab anything on the ground can get him into trouble)!  Ranger does not have sharing skills with other dogs so he would be best as an only dog. He is crated at night (in an airline crate) and when left. Appropriate for children over 13.. 

If you would like to meet Ranger, please email your four page adoption application to and


Hello, I am sweet, smart Sammy. Playful, energetic yet chill, I am a wonderful house companion. Often I will follow you around or lay at your side if you are reading or busy. Other times I will self entertain with my toys that I enjoy very much. Sometimes I just want to find a quiet corner and relax.  I am housebroken, know basic comands and walk very nicely on a leash. I prefer the floor or a dog bed as I have been trained not to climb onto furniture or human beds. I will bark and then calm down after I've let you know there is  someone at the door. While I love people and other dogs closer to my size, I do not get along with cats or small dogs at all. I'm also not a big fan of thunderstorms and will definitely be right next to you when they come around. Overall I'm a good sweet boy that would do best as an only pet with a family that likes my company.

Meet Buddy!!  This sweet eight year old boy's mommy passed away and he is currently with a family member while looking for a new family to love him.  Buddy is a great house guest, house trained, doesn't need to be crated;  in a home with other dogs and cats; loves to ride in the car, and in good health. Buddy is terrified of thunderstorms and fireworks but he doesn't get anxious and destroy things; he hasn't seem interested or bothered by our foster kittens; he velcros to one person and will follow you around.  Buddy is still very active for his age and loves his daily walks.  He also darts here and there so would probably do best with older kids in a family.  I know he's got to be confused and sad.

Goodness Gracious ... Gracey's story began September 14th when a family member was driving the back roads between Charlotte and Fayetteville.  The lady went around a curve and there was Gracey sitting beside the road.  Of course she stopped and, when she opened her car door, Gracey jumped right in.  The lady went to the only house close by and no one recognized Gracey.  We contacted the animal shelter in two counties, posted Gracey on social media, and lost and found social media page as directed.  The vet checked but no chip, thinks Gracey is approximately 8 months old, weighs approximately 15 lbs., and a Dachshund / Jack Russell mix.  Now, we must find Gracey a forever home or at least a foster home so she doesn't have to go to boarding.   The following was written by the family who has housed Gracey but can't keep her.  GREAT DOG!  Crate trained,  house trained, great with other dogs, and loves cats;  Loves to play ball.  Gracie is located in Charlotte, NC.

Jackson, approximately 8 years, came to us from the shelter after being picked up as a stray and the owner didn't come claim him.  The following are notes from the foster dad. 

Jackson has been doing absolutely wonderful.  He's a real sweet boy and your typical lab.  Jackson is house trained and knows several commands.  He's fantastic with my 6 and 4 year old, great with other dogs that we've had him play with, great with our cat, and even great with the chickens.  He'll walk right into the chicken run and lay down when I'm in there cleaning/feeding them.  He's walking well on a leash and does great in a crate.  I've been crating him at night.   Jackson goes right in the crate and, in the morning if I'm being lazy, he'll just lay in there and wait for me to let him out.  He'll make a great addition to a new family.
