ADOPTER NEEDED! Meet our VERY SPECIAL boy, Bud. This precious soul was born just 8 months ago. Unfortunately, he was put on a chain in a backyard. But, this sweet boy’s bad luck started way before he was born. Bud was born with severe hip dysplasia and a slight neurological deficit. As a result of that and being chained, he has no muscle mass in his rear. This DOES NOT STOP THIS FANTASTIC BOY!! He LOVES people, other dogs, and doesn’t even notice the cat. He is currently able to handle the stairs and seems to be getting stronger every day. We are scheduling an orthopedic visit to investigate options for his hips.
Our GREATEST DESIRE FOR BUD is to change his LUCK and find a home that will LOVE him and give him the TLC he needs In the coming weeks and years to deal with his special needs. He has so much LOVE to give!
UPDATE! Bud Update! GORGEOUS and SWEET 9 month old Bud is doing GREAT! With good food and exercise, he has started to fill out and gain some muscle. He still slips on occasion if he takes a turn too quickly but he just hops right up and keeps going. Bud ADORES playing with the other dogs, getting lots of affection and his walks. He has no trouble climbing the stairs or navigating the doggie door. He is truly a DELIGHT to be around!

Meet handsome Roar!
This amazingly youthful fellow is 10-11 years old…he has a spring in his step and looks that belie his age!! He found himself in the shelter due to his owner letting him roam the neighborhood. We think he may have been lonely and looking for company.
He came to us with a few lumps and bumps, but they have been removed and he is healing nicely. Roar is a big boy at around 108 lbs…he has been losing a bit of weigh which is what he needed. He is dog friendly, but can pull a bit on the leash. He loves to go on long walks a couple of times a day, so a somewhat active home would be a good fit…he’s not a senior acting dog yet!! And some exercise will keep this amazingly boy fit and trim. Rohr LOVES to play fetch and loves to ride in the car.
He does well in the home and can have full reign of the home, but probably due to his lonely past, does best in the crate when left alone to help him feel safe. We feel he would be happiest in a home where he would not be left alone for big amounts of time, with one or more adults, no children under the age of ten, and maybe a dog companion.
To foster Rohr, please email your completed application to email@example.com and to adopt, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meet BEAUTIFUL and SWEET Callie! This 4 year old girl found herself at a small shelter shortly after she had given birth to puppies (we don't know what happened to the pups) Even though she isn't a typical Lab (we are thinking a Lab/Collie) her personality is all LOVE and the shelter workers begged us to save her. With a face like that, how could we refuse? Callie is SUPER FRIENDLY with people and other dogs! She doesn't jump up when you meet her and is very easy on the leash. She appears to be house trained. She is going to be a wonderful addition to her new family!

This one year old girl is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Layla was found wandering and hungry when she ended up in a small, rural shelter. Now, she is a happy girl who loves being spoiled with belly rubs and treats. Layla knows her basic commands, walks well on the
leash and rides great in the car. She is housetrained and crated
when no-one is home. Layla loves to play fetch and is an active girl who would do best with a fenced yard and older children. Layla has been to the dog park several times with no issues, however she is very vocal to dogs when on the leash. She has been doing better with training. She has been in a foster home with other dogs and a cat. A home without cats would be recommended
(depending on cat). With routine and structure, Layla will achieve her full potential as a

MEXPERIENCED FOSTER/ADOPTER NEEDED- Greater Charlotte NC area! Peaches is a VERY SWEET, VERY TIMID one year old Lab mix in need of a patient Foster or Adopter to help her learn to trust strangers and learn about new places and new things . Peaches belonged to a senior man who didn't socialize her with other people or new places. (she is very dog friendly and in no way aggressive!) The man has passed away and his family can not take care of Peaches. When she sees a stranger she stands 20 feet away and barks. If the person sits down and ignores her while tossing treats, she eventually will come over and take the treats. The family reports it will take about 3 days for her to warm up to a new person in the home. We will be providing guidance on socializing Peaches through our trainer. A fenced yard is a must!
When we met her, she did finally take treats and once she realized we were no threat she ran and played in the yard. She is fully vetted, house trained and is ok with a crate. Peaches will be a WONDERFUL family member with just a little training and socialization.
To help us, help her please email email@example.com

Meet Chestnut, the most ADORABLE seven year old Bassador (Lab/Basset Hound) ever! Chestnut was a frequent visitor to the local shelter because he just LOVES to get out and explore the World! His family finally just didn't come to get him but their loss is our gain! He is super FRIENDLY with every person, dog and cat he meets!

UPDATE: Chestnut is doing GREAT! His fur is coming in and he looks so HANDSOME! His foster reports that Chestnut is SUPER SWEET AND EASY GOING and he LOVES to follow his human around and be close without being too close.

Meet AMAZING Luna! This ENERGETIC, SMART two year old girl is just about the perfect Lab - she loves the water, loves to fetch and is a quick learner! Once she trusts her human, she will go above and beyond to please them and be with them. Luna is totally house and crate trained. She is good with other dogs (we have not seen her with cats) and good with people although she will bark when someone new comes to the house. She still needs a little work on the leash but that is easily accomplished with positive reinforcement. Luna will do best in a home where someone is around to exercise her and keep her company. (or a situation where she can go to work with you) She will make an excellent best friend for the right family!
