Alex





Foster update Oct 8: My name is Alex and I never meet a stranger! When I first came to my foster home, I needed time to trust my family. After the way people and other dogs treated me, I didn't understand what love was. However, after a few weeks I have wiggle butt syndrome just by the sight of a hooman headed my way. I get along great with other dogs, big and small. My foster brother was so understanding when I first came here. He gave me my space and is very laid back. He never gets in my face of jumps on me, so I like him a lot. I also pay no attention to the lazy cat that I live with. My foster parents gave me the time I needed for slow introductions and I did amazing! My foster parents have taught me how to walk on a leash, and I much prefer the halter to the collar. I will pull slightly on a leash when I am very excited, but listen very well when corrected. I am so good on a leash that the little people in my house walk me too. I get so excited when my family comes home that I sometimes jump in the air and dance, but never jump on my people. I am crate and potty trained. I did have to figure out a way to get food my whole life, so I prefer to eat out of my own bowl. I do eat in the same room as my furbrother and that's fine with me as long as he does not try to eat out of my bowl while I am eating. I am very mellow and calm, but do love to walk daily to stretch my legs from being in the crate while my foster mom and dad work. I love my family so much that sometimes (very rarely) I like to chew on things while they are gone, but never while they are at home. My foster mom keeps me in the crate instead of free roam when they aren't home and offers me a chewy bone. I haven't chewed a thing since! At first I did not like car rides because of the things that happened in my past, but my foster brother is teaching me that they are awesome!!! My current home does not have a fence and that's ok with me. I do great with pottying and walking on a leash. I do NOT like to be left outside for extended periods of time and will bark because I have lived all my life without love and attention and am scared of being left outside alone. My perfect family would be someone who is willing to love and cuddle with me, give me the respect of slow introductions (2 weeks was more than enough in my foster home), walk me daily and have small people who are older than 7 or 8. The only reason I prefer a little older children is because I have a tail what wiggles ferociously when I am happy and I am learning to play appropriately. No one has ever taught me how to play with a ball or chase and sometimes I get overly excited and may nibble during play time. I have never once shown any signs of aggression and am full of love, but need some direction on how to play. My foster family has kids (5, 7, 10) and I am doing great with them. However, they respect that they should not run and be extremely loud unless we are outside because I may get excited and don't know I should not jump or nibble. I am so excited to find my furever home.

Alex is extremely mellow and is great in every way. He likes my male dog, but has never been around a very hyper dog or tested with a female. I think he would be fine with slow intros however. He does like children, but nibbles when playing, which may scare children. He is not aggressive in any way other than wanting to eat out of his own bowl. He lets humans hand feed him, but does not like other dogs trying to eat from his bowl while he is eating. When taking treats/snacks he does not guard or have aggression, it is ONLY with his individual food bowl. He is a cuddle bunny and loves to snuggle with other dogs and humans as often as possible. My husband and I both work full time and he is in the crate while we are at work. We come home for lunch to let him out to potty and eat. He initially did have some anxiety and expressed it by chewing, however it was very mild and we were able to crate train him and get him a nylabone. This has completely fixed the issue.Note: 8/8; AC stray; arrived covered with bite marks and open cuts.  take to ER vet.  Believed to be a bait dog. Has made a full recovery.  HW+; male; no age; 50lbs








Pretty and Perky!  Perhaps I sound like an appealing cappuccino in the morning, but trust me, I'll provide you with a full day of canine goodness.   Folks are drawn to my broad grin,  steady wagging tail and softly wiggly hips.  I am a true friend to all!  Nicely meeting both a male and female dog today on my walk,  I comfortably mix and mingle with others and am fast to make myself at home!  I was the first to sink down low and slow into a mud puddle while the others looked on with envy as if to say, "Gheez, sure wish I had thought about doing that."   A pleasant and happy lady at heart,  playing fetch with kids would surely make me smile and having them take me out for exploratory walks in the neighborhood would be on my list of fun things to do.   Stop by today and let me "Sit" while you offer me a treat and I turn will encourage you to please give me some lovin' which I will return ten fold!  Note: Brought in by a member of the community as a stray. Showed up at his house during the storm on steerfork dr., Florence.   Very sweet and loving.   HW-; 1 yr old; shep mix; 46lbs; 9/4.  Note: Alice did FANTASTIC! She is a sweet girl, who loves people and other dogs. She passed her dog test for male and female with flying colors.

Austin- DoggyFriends. FriendEvette - Sponsored for HW treatment 








More about me March 23: This handsome hunk is Austin, a happy and well mannered guy!  Austin has met several other doggie friends, male and female, and been social and friendly with all. Austin loves to explore and really loves to go for walks, when he sees his leash and knows it's walk time he is happy and ready to go!  He's eager to leave his kennel and get some activity.  Austin is strong and would most likely benefit from an Easy Walker leash or some type such as that to help slow him down. He would fit in well in just about any type of home, and would be better suited to a home with older children as opposed to younger ones just because of his size.  He also enjoys car rides and rides along just fine.  Austin has a special friend who works at the shelter and she loves taking him out of his kennel just to hang out with her. He is nice and calm when he is by her side and oh boy does he love back scratches and being petted! He also enjoys playing with toys and when when she approaches his kennel he is always waiting to say hello with a toy in his mouth. Austin would enjoy a home with a fenced in yard because he enjoys romping and playing. He's oh so handsome with his white coat and light brown splashes, especially the one over his eye.  He also has the cutest pink and brown nose and gorgeous hazel eyes. Austin knows his special friend loves him but he also knows she would sooner see him in a forever home instead of a kennel at the shelter. If you are looking for a friendly, social guy who would love to be a devoted companion, please check out Amazing Austin!   HW+; 58lbs 2/2019; intake Sept 2018; 2-3 yrs old

More about me June 15:  I really like Austin.  He loves to play, and looks at you with big ole eyes.  When you take him out of the fences area he behaves very well.  He is strong, but after the initial "YAY"," I am out of the kennel he is pretty calm and collected. walks well on a leash.  Would be great with a more calm dog. 


More about me October 27:  This is Austin, aka “my handsome buddy”. His kennel at the bridge is just a few down from my Samuel’s. If I’m not in too much of a rush to get to work (or back home), I like to speak to each dog close to Samuel’s kennel. Therefore, over the past few months, I have gotten to know Austin. I have fallen in love with him and his handsome face. 

Austin is not an attention seeker. He does not bark or jump up in his kennel to say “come look at me, pet me, love me...”- even when his next door neighbor is jumping and barking to pull your attention away from Austin to her. Instead Austin quietly and unassumingly works his way into your heart. His eyes seem to really look into your soul. They show a wisdom.  

He is a big boy. But gentle. He loves his treats (has a special liking for cheeseburgers) but does not take them greedily. On a previous outing, a young boy of about 7 asked if he could pet Austin (I was impressed the young boy asked especially since his parents were not right there). Austin was oh so gentle with him and accepted the boy’s attention lovingly. Even when the boy dropped his drink from the Sonic, Austin did not try to go for it. 

Somebody asked “why has he been there so long?” My answer. I really don’t know. This dog is awesome.

Baxter


Baxter arrived at the shelter March 2018 as a 3-4 month old puppy. He was timid and often placed with other outgoing dogs to build his confidence. A foster took him home, and he has blossomed in that home. He walks well on leash and gets along with all other dogs (large, small, male, female, old, young). Baxter is submissive to the alpha male dog in the house, letting him have toys and giving up treats for him. Baxter seldom barks-only to alert his foster mom of something in the yard. Baxter loves to play with other dogs his size and even smaller dogs. He is polite when he plays. Baxter walks on leash and enjoys spending most of his time in the back yard with his 4 legged friends. He is accustomed to eating and sleeping in his crate. After playtime during the day, Baxter enjoys lying in the kitchen watching his foster mom prepare supper. Baxter is polite and gentle and would be a great companion for a family with or without children, but he will do best in a home with another male or female dog as a playmate. Baxter will chase a cat in the yard, but he leaves the house cats alone at his foster mom's house.   March 2018 intake;  pics from 6/29/19; 60lbs; 18mos old; shep mix; male; HW- 

Bebe -safe


Sweet girl.  O/S because she gets out of fenced in yard.  The neighbor threatened to harm her if she showed up in their yard again. Human reports she is good with kids and other dogs. 2 yrs old; hw-; 12/3; female; terrier/dachsi mix; 25lbs

Bitsie and Bootsie Chis- Pull fees covered if pulled with the intent of rehoming together- BONDED PAIR!  -safe


Bitsie (4lbs, 2 yrs old, hw-), Bootise (17lbs, 2 yrs old, hw-)

Previously adopted as Betty 542 along with Barbara 541 who is currently known as Bootsie 2810 and Bitsie.  11/19; females; O/S due to skin problems. Reportedly good with other dogs, kids and cats. 






Everything you need and desire and expect in a lab EXCEPT all the bouncy energy!!  Blackmon is one super cool dude.   He is softly loving and affectionate,  doting and patient and excellent at making new friends.   A medium sized fellow at 40lbs,  he has slightly droopy jowls and eyes that just beg you to take him on home.  Blackmon is a gentle natured guy who is easy to manage and very easy to fall for!   Blackmon loves being near his human, leaning into them and giving them soft face kisses.  With other dogs,  he is fast to accept them into his easy going world and will happily trot right along side them.    A family with kids and other dogs would be lucky to have Blackmon as part of the family unit making sure everyone is feeling loved!   Note: Blackmon was brought in with his friend Missy. He is a very calm and easy going boy and HW positive.  O/S- kept getting out of yard; 3 yrs old; 38lbs; lab mix; 10/11



Blakely is ready for her next step. She eats well, she occasionally will chew on a cow hoof or buffalo horn and likes the Benebone in peanut butter flavor. She goes to her kennel to sleep at night and never makes a fuss. She has never had an accident in her kennel. She does like a treat when going kennel at night for bed. She likes to be petted and shown some attention, but she will go off and play on her own and explore the yard. She does not require a whole lot of attention. She does love to go on walks and is very good on leash. She never pulls; she just walks along beside or a little in front but mostly beside me. She is not much of a digger. She never tries to escape the fence (digging or jumping over). She has only dug a few times little holes after a mole in the ground. She would love to be spoiled by someone. Her fur is so nice now & she has great teeth (can't help but notice her good teeth!). She likes to potty off leash by finding just the right spot. She loves to run around in the yard and roll over on her back in the yard. She is not much on toys, but loves to romp and play. She has never jumped on me. She rides in the car well too and enjoys riding. She is afraid of cars when they pass by on our walks. I guess from being hit by a car has affected her. She will back up and freeze when a car goes by. I always say 'Car Car!' to my pups when walking and make a point to go way into whoever's yard we are in front of trying to teach them to get away from cars. When a loud car/truck passes by when we are in the yard, she will freeze and get a scared look on her face. It's like she has PTSD over cars/trucks, which can serve her well (hopefully).   Note: Arrived as a stray with demodex and suffering from an old fractured leg. She was splinted and sent off to foster care where she has totally blossomed!  11/11/19.  Heartworm negative.  AC stray; found 9/9; old fractured leg; female




Came in with Clyde;  10/22; hw-; 42lbs; 3 yrs old; stray; bull mix.  On meds for a slightly irregular gait.  Perhaps uncomfortable hip area. 

Bridget  -safe




Free Spirit!  Bridget is such a fun, bubbly, ready to go and do girl!  This more spindly-framed gal sports a beautiful blonde coat and stunning smile which entice you to come on over and say "Hi." Eager to exit her kennel,  Bridget had THE best time running like the wind in our exercise pen.  Airborne frisbees and tennis balls quickly caught her attention as she went sprinting off to capture and ground them.  Not a chance she would return them to you but that was OK as the reward in playing fetch with this athletic lab is to see her have so much fun and enjoy her play time.   Social, playful and never meeting a stranger, she is nicely rooming with a smaller shy dog and would make an excellent choice for a family with kids and other dogs.  Her personality is fun, playful and infectious and you would be hard pressed to walk down a street and not have someone wish to come up to meet this lovely dog at the end of your leash.  Please, ask for Bridget today, won't you?

Briley


12/6; 47lbs; O/S; hw-; 1yr old; reportedly good with kids and other dogs.  no cats.




Hw neg; 10/24; ac stray; 45lbs; 2 yrs old; bull mix



32lbs (thin); 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 6/13. From foster mom: Brunson is a sweetheart! I've introduced him to my dogs, males and females, and he is doing great.  Fine with cats!   HW+. 45lbs 6/25!  Treated for hw's 8/22



More about me June 30: Fitting Right In!! Brunson is such a mild mannered fellow,  he'll fit right in wherever he's welcome!   This super handsome boxer mix had previously really struggled in his community as he looked for handouts at the local convenience store.  Good news for Brunson is that he was broken out of that unsustainable existence and finds himself in a fantastic foster home where he can focus on simply being a family pet.   Brunson has added on some much needed weight and has done a bang up job in learning acceptable in home behavior from the other pets in the home and yes, foster mom.   Nicely interacting with the whole crew of full time pets in this foster home,  Brunson is respectful of pets larger and smaller than himself (including cats and a grumpy old chi!) and will happily self entertain and make himself comfortable.  Out on our walk today,  Brunson showed off his wonderful leash walking skills and when it was time to cool off, he was content to stretch out right beside his new doggy friends.   A friendly, happy fellow,  Brunson is soft with his affection, never pushy or in your face and open to guidance from his human.  Simply put, he's just ONE NICE DOG!  Brunson loves being near his human and will seek them out for attention but likewise is fine having his own down time to simply chill and relax.  A home with kids and other pets would be a great match for this mid-sized fellow who has overcome such obstacles.    Will you be the one to hire Brunson for his first ever full time pet position?  Well, he sure hopes so!

I dare you to catch me NOT smiling!  Even though I am homeless and at a shelter, still my outlook on life is super positive and I find good times wherever I go!   I had the best time on my outing nicely meeting an older gentleman hound.   My focus in general is really more on people as I am hoping they will give me some attention and maybe peak my interest with a squeaky toy.   I'm happy as can be to run and self entertain in an enclosed area however if I see a human coming my way or another dog,  rest assured I will stop on by to say "hi."   A good natured lady with some energy to spare,  a more active home where I can hang out with slightly older kids and or run and play with other dogs, will help keep me at my best.   This smile maker is friendly and affectionate and simply loves life.  Won't you join in my fun and happy world by coming by to meet me today??Note: 10/25; ac stray; very sweet; 40lbs; 2 yrs old; shep mix; HW -






Shy, sweet girl looking for a patient person with a quiet home!  My name is Christy and folks are pushing really hard to help me find my perfect home.   A smaller framed gal with a lot of curb appeal, I've had a very limited pet experience but am working very hard to be the best I can be.   Rescued from a hoarding situation,  I'm clearly more in my element hanging out with other dogs but working diligently on my human interaction skills.  Humans can be a little scary for me so allowing me to make those first few steps in building a relationship with you will mean having dogs in a home to help guide me and a human who will allow me to be, well me!   Trust will build between us but please, it will take time and gosh, it will be so incredibly rewarding for both us!   Already,  I am house trained, crate trained and also leash trained, three very marketable pet skills!   If you have dogs in your home who might be willing to show me the pet ropes,  I think we should talk!  Please, ask for me Christy, won't you?  Note: Christy was the 49th dog rescued from the Indian Branch property.  She was brought in by animal control from a hoarding situation. She is very timid.  8-6-18; lab/collie mix; 3-5 yrs old; 34lbs; hw+

More about me from foster mom March 9: 
 2) She is completely house trained. She has never had an accident in her crate nor in the house.
 3) Crate trained? Her crate is her safe space. She has learned she gets fed either outside, or in her crate. She goes in no problem. She has never had an accident in her crate either. She is calm. Barks if she needs anything.
 4) Leash walking skills? She walks fine on a leash. Sometimes she tries to walk in circles. She likes to be distant from whoever is walking her and not touched.
5) Energy level of pet? Timid, but anxious. In the house she will lie down or go in her crate. She plays like a normal dog. I would say average energy. Plays well with small and big dogs. She enjoys running and rough housing with dogs, or being play chased. 
6) Personality of pet? Anxious. Playful with dogs. Learning to like touch. Curious. Allows her person to handle her if approached in crate without any signs of nipping or aggression, even though she is very scared. Flight risk.  She enjoys being outside with shelter. She likes to be able to come and go as she pleases. She appreciates routine, she seems to always know when 8am and 5pm are to eat. She will stand on porch and give a few barks to alert you it's time to eat. When we get home from work, she gets very happy to see us. She likes you to come outside and stomp your feet/play chase her for a little bit. She buries her bones for later. Not a cuddler, yet. 
 7) Best suited in what type of home? Never seen her around kids. Does fine with dogs and cats. She is going to do what makes her comfortable. I dont think a high energy home would be good. Maybe quiet to moderate. 
 8) Ready to go and do? Not with us. She takes serious coaxing to get inside the house. She prefers to be left alone until she is ready for attention.
 Does your pet like car rides? Very anxious in car
9) Are they open to go and to and explore? Not with us. 
10) Good choice for walking down a Main Street setting? No she would be very anxious and scared. 
11) Better suited staying on the sofa and cuddling? Not a cuddler. Best with someone who appreciates her boundaries and comfort.
12) If your foster interacted with other dogs in your home how did that go? She loves to watch them play, as well as interact. She does fine when they jump around on her and lick her mouth.
 10) Please describe what you feel might be the ideal home for your foster? If someone had a lot of time to devote to her, and getting her comfortable with them, she might come out of her shell more. I know in her previous situation, she liked to come and go as she saw fit and have shelter to recluse. She does good in a fenced in yard. 

Chuu- baby friendly!!



She came to me from a coworker that found her as a stray and kept her for a few months. She is super sweet and loves people. She’s been living with a baby and a cat for the past few months with no issues.  HW+; 37lbs; 1 yr old; corgi mix; 12/3

Daria- Video



Intake 7/2018, Shep Mix, 55.6 pounds, mom of Dx5 pups.   Sheriff seized the family due to unlivable conditions.  Daria tested positive for heartworms and was treated for them 8/2018. 

More about me April 25: Beautiful Daria will steal your heart with her soulful eyes.  Her foster dad said just one look from her  makes it clear how much she loves being around people. He describes Daria as a wonderful, extremely gentle dog. She's housetrained and loves going for walks, too.Talk about smart, Daria knows when it's time to go for a walk and she sits patiently to wait and have her leash attached. She is a well behaved girl who would be a good fit for an active home and she benefits from regular exercise. Daria's favorite thing to do is be around people, but she is also friendly with other dogs who are friendly to her. She also has a laid back side to her personality and would love to be your couch companion if you have some Netflix watching to catch up on. Daria came to the shelter with her litter of puppies when they were seized by the authorities for being kept in unlivable conditions. Her puppies have since been adopted and Daria has been spayed so no more unwanted litters for her.  She did her duty to her puppies and is now ready to retire as a former momma and have a life of leisure all her own now. Daria came from a not so nice place but she's not looking back, she knows her foster dad and the staff at the shelter  will find a perfect home for her where she can be treated with love and respect.  She's beautiful not only on the outside but on the inside as well. Please consider this former momma dog if you are looking for a loving companion who wants nothing more than a soft place to rest her head and a  person to look into those soulful eyes and tell her she is safe, wanted, and cherished.

Hw test will be postponed due to anemia. 10/24; 27lbs; 2 yrs old; lab mix; ac stray




Update July 17: Delores! How does this sweet girl not have rescue or adoption interest yet? I am totally in love. She has truly blossomed through her experience with her foster mom Denise Ball. Delores LOVES other dogs- big and small (& probably medium, too). She seems a little nervous around my cat, but who wouldn’t be? My boy Samuel can testify that my Otis has a mean left hook- lol! Seriously though, Delores will do so well in a home with another dog to show her the ropes, and I can totally see her cuddling with a kitty (that’s a little nicer than Otis- he’s an old grumpy cat).  Note: Delores was brought in as a stray by animal control. She was picked up on Kingston Dr in McBee. She is very timid and would really benefit from a foster home.  HW-; 24lbs; 5-6 mos old; lab mix; 1/14

Let's get down and dirty!  Literally!   I got so many accolades while out walking with my new human friends and new bully friend Toby.  I think jaws dropped open when I sunk down in a semi-sticky mud puddle and proceeded to coat myself with a nice, thick layer of muck!  I was coated like a pig in a sty!  Next up,  folks kept oohing and aahing over my wonderful cupping ears and super expressive face.  As if that was not enough,  the humans and Toby enjoyed my playful, happy disposition.  I made them laugh.  While in my exercise pen,  I kept a good steady pace with Toby who was running up and back in his pen and the two of us had the grandest time egging on the other to see who could run the fastest!   Friendly and loving and not afraid to go down the path less traveled,  I'm your new partner for exploring and going and doing...in great style!  Note: Edie was brought in by a member of the community as a stray. Found on Harper st., darlington.  She is a love bug! Loves to be petted and is a very sweet girl!  HW-; 53lbs; 2 yrs old; bull mix; 8/29. No cats for me please
