F Pups x 2

Flynn, Fancy

females; 3-4lbs each; 8/9; lab mix; 4-5 wks old

Even Keel!  Miss Ferrari proudly beamed when she learned she was recognized for being so accepting and willing to share her walk with other dogs.   This mid-sized lady was fast to snuggle up with her new human friend and showed a moderate amount of interest in politely meeting the other 4 legged doggies on our field trip in front of the shelter.   We enjoyed watching her work her way through a short lived bout of "zoomies" in the exercise area and then settling down for some fast pictures. Never jumpy or in your face,  Ferrari is respectful of other's space and would enjoy taking on a pet role which included the care of kids.   In her former life,  this beautiful lady shared her life with 2 bouncy teen pups and another adult dog.   She's on task for her next pet job and looks forward to the exciting interviewing process. Note: Ferrari was brought in as an owner surrender due to being unable to care for pet. Brought in along with shadow 1656, Jessica 1676, Jenna 1677.  Ferrari is a sweet girl and loves attention. Walks well on a leash.  Has a skin condition that will be checked out by vet.   HW+; 48lbs; 2-3 yrs old; lab mix; 7/11

Forest was brought in by a member of the community as a stray found at ebenazer and Sumter st., Darlington. 
Forest is a sweet loving boy! HW-; 85lbs; 1 yr old; mastiff; 7/12


Franny was brought in as a stray by Ac. Found on lynhaven dr., Hartsville.  She is very scared but warms up quickly. Very sweet.  HW-; 20lbs; 10 mos old; spaniel/lab mix; 8/9


Freddie was seized by AC due to maltreatment.  He is very sweet and loving. Walks well on a leash! Hw-; 55lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 8/1

Update July 15: Got a lap?  Well, I'm ready to fill it!  Some might say at pushing 50lbs, I'm a wee bit large for this cuddling position but once you meet me, you will find my advances hard to resist and soon we will be lap buddies.    Everyone who meets me loves me and I love them!  Kissy, wiggly and very affectionate,  I am not shy about sharing my feelings for you.  Recently found abandoned at my newer home,   gosh,  I had such fun with the other 2 dogs with whom I was allowed to roam in as large as a 2 mile radius!   This may not have been the safest approach for us all so in part, I'm glad I can interview again and meet a family who will keep me in a more secured area to make sure I am safe all the time!    A good natured, happy, super friendly guy,  I have plenty of playfulness and adventure in me to make the whole family smile.  My ideal home would be one that is more active and if given a choice, I think having 24/7 doggy companions would be a big plus for me as well.  Cats, well I'm not so sure about but perhaps if they are inside only, they too might be a good match for me.  Kids are a definite YES and ones who are slightly older and more sturdy will have such fun with me by their side!   I'm ready to go and do and can't wait to hear from YOU! 

Gerald was adopted from the shelter back in April. The neighborhoods of the people who adopted him brought him into the shelter because his people left him. He is still HW negative and is a playful boy.   hw-; 47lbs;  Original Intake info: Gerald was turned in by a member of the community as a stray.  7/6.

Update Aug 2: Hank has been in foster since his intake. He is doing great in foster. The foster has other dogs, cats and a child under 7. He is good with other dogs of all sizes. He is just 8-9 months old and is still a playful, funny young guy. He loves a playful dog to hang out with. He is more of a follower than a leader and is up for any activity the others are doing. When they get tired, he will follow their cues and settle in with them on the couch or at the foster's feet. He loves to eat and loves to play in water. He does fine with the child in the home. There is no food or toy jealousy. He likes to play with the cats and can be over zealous and chase. He will bother them at times until he gets slapped then he walks away sulking. He is crate trained. He is almost completely housebroken, just a few accidents on occasion that are usually because the foster missed his quiet cues. He likes to sleep in bed with the foster. He listens ok for his age and absolutely wants to be with you and please you. He is getting better with walking on leash and he likes to wear a harness rather than a collar. He responds to being called Pup-Pup.

Harper Teen Pup- FriendDiamond

Girls Best Friend....or Boys Best Friend!  Harper is such a cute little love bug.  It's hard for folks to take in tiny doses of this sweet, bubbly lady.  A superb choice for a family with kids,  Harper was excellent in meeting and nicely playing with other dogs on our walk today.  Already a skilled leash walker,  she showed mild interest in the frisbee and a large toy which she toted around in her mouth.   Graced with a gentle disposition,  Harper is playful, social, snuggly and affectionate.   It's hard not to smile when you see this sunny faced little lady coming your way.  Note: Harper was brought in by a member of the community as a stray found wandering on Oak Avenue. Harper is a very sweet girl and very loving. Walks well on a leash and doesn’t seem to mind other dogs.   HW-; 28lbs; 7 mos old; lab mix; 8/8

Jessie came in with Amelia.  Gets along well with other dogs and is very playful!  HW+; 60lbs; 3 yrs old; lab/retriever mix; 5/2

Jesse was found as a stray in Darlington. He was picked at the intersection of N Main St and Doneraile St.  He has been in foster with Debbie Anderson and she has been trying to help him gain weight. Many of his teeth are broken. He has badly clipped ears and a lot of hair loss. Despite this, he is very affectionate and sweet.  HW+; 45lbs; 2-3 yrs old; bull mix; 11/19/18

Foster update May 28:   I picked him up from out of the road, dodging traffic, on Halloween night.  He was in terrible shape when I found him.  He had a collar on but was so emaciated, his skin was red and irritated and he was so dirty.  We began working to put some weight back on him and work on his skin issues.  He still has a little hair loss on his back, but he is doing much better.  He is an older guy and you can tell that humans have not been kind to him in his life.  Despite all that, he is the sweetest and most loving little man.  I had his intake done at the shelter and brought him straight home with me into foster, so he's not spent any time at the shelter.  Great dog so deserving of a home of his own!

Jojo Pup

Please rub my belly!   Jojo is cute plus.  Sporting a sleek cream coat, this happy, bouncy guy will "have you" as soon as he rolls over on his back exposing spots all over his belly area begging for you to kindly rub and pet.   Very snuggly and affectionate,  he was fast to weasel his way right into our hearts.   Note: JoJo was brought in as an owner surrender due to showing food aggression.  JoJo is a very sweet boy and very playful!  7/11; 3-4 mos old; lab/hound; male; 20lbs


Jonah was brought in as a stray found on poplar st., Hartsville.  From community reports...seems to be a very nice boy. Seen behind the IGA in North Hartsville. Just showed up all of a sudden so folks suspected someone dropped him there. As he was traveling the neighborhood, he was interested in people riding their bikes and interested in cats but didn't bother anyone or anything. Got along with all the dogs he met.  Note: He is a very sweet loving boy. Seems to get along well with other dogs. Walks well on a leash.  HW-; 43lbs; 1 yr old; lab mix; 7/16

Close to you!!  Big, solid boy Juno loves being close to others.  If you browse through his pictures,  likely you will see someone nearby!   This low-medium energy fellow loves attention and will encourage you to pet and rub him all over his body.   A smart, perceptive guy, Juno wasted no time in the great heat to seek out a shady spot and did a wonderful job in sharing his cool oasis with his new labby friend, Daniel.  More patient and methodical in his approach to life,   we so enjoyed sharing our afternoon with Juno.   A larger guy at over 50lbs,  Juno is easy enough to handle and if given the chance would likely climb right up into your lap to give you some loving while hoping to get some in return.   Only 1-2 yrs old,  Juno has his whole life ahead of him and already he has some fantastic pet skills firmly in place.  Ask for Juno today and let him impress you with his manners and loving personality.   Note: Juno was brought in by a member of the community as a stray. Found on stuckey bottom rd., Darlington.  Juno is an absolute sweetheart. A real mellow loving guy! Walks well on a leash and gets along well with other dogs.   HW+; 51lbs; 1-2 yrs old; bully mix; 5/21

More about me June 30: I'm slowly settling.  Things are still very scary/spooky for me but I have found a friend in Marcus, one of the staff who regularly cares for me.  I always know he's coming by to spend time with me when I hear the familiar "knock knock" sound on the roof of my igloo.  When I peek my head out,  I'll see his welcoming smile and then out I scoot from my igloo to say "hi" to him.  Just today we also headed out for a brief walk together.  I'm still super shy around folks I don't know but with Marcus's help,  daily I am making great strides.   Don't be shy yourself though...come on by and check in on me.  I need lots of folks to friend me to help me adjust and find my new pet job.

Lucy Mae- safe

Sweet and docile! Little Lucy Mae is just as sweet as she can be!    This quiet, well mannered brindle gal nicely exited her kennel to head out for a walk and promptly welcomed a more bouncy hound to join in on the photo time fun.   Hedging a bit of the shy side,  by the end of our photo session,  she was coming over to simply sit and or hang by our sides as we all enjoyed the cool shade of a tree.   The perfect size for laps at just 30lbs,  Lucy Mae would prefer to lay near you but not on you as she's very respectful of everyone's space albeit humans or dogs.  Very, very low key and not looking to create any kind of stir or commotion, Lucy Mae's calm, chill personality was a refreshing start to what would be a long, hot summer day for all.  Note:  Lucy Mae has a very slight limp in her rear leg.  It would appear she recently lost one of her rear toes (there was fresher blood).  She has been put on meds and will go in for an X-ray to make sure the slight limp is not tied into a hidden injury in her hip area.   Note: Lucy Maye was brought in as an owner surrender. They found her as a stray one month ago and could not find her a home.  She is very sweet and loving. Walks well on a leash and gets along well with other dogs.  Brought in with willow 1873. HW-; 2 yrs old; 7/30; 30lbs; lab mix

Mama T

Mama T has a sad story to tell but still a joyful outlook. She came to the shelter when her owner was no longer able to care for her. She was pregnant with 7 puppies but sadly none of the 7 survived. Mama T hasn't let the loss of her puppies dim her sunny disposition though, she remains friendly and social with other dogs and especially loves getting love and attention from her person. She is a nice smaller size and packs a lot of love in a little package! She is a champion cuddler and walks wonderfully on a leash. Mama T has so much love to give to one very special person.  She is very affectionate and bonds with her person and thinks it is her job to be a protector.  Because of this instinct, we are recommending that she go into a one person home with someone who would appreciate a dog who wants to be their guardian and keep them safe. Mama T will make a wonderful companion for the right person. She is also crate trained and spent some time in a foster home where we discovered she was house trained as well. Mama T had her cat test and when she was walked by the cattery she didn't react to the kitties at all. This little love bug has waited for a forever home that will cherish her and treat her with love and the value every pet deserves. Let her spread a little of her love into your home, we think you'll never regret it!  Note: Mama T was brought in as an owner surrender. The owner could no longer take care of her.  HW+; 38lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 8/27/18; Treated for hw's 11/18/18

Marcus FriendMia

Marcus was brought in by AC as a canine seizure and hold detainer due to her owner getting in trouble with the law and abandoning his 2 dogs.  He is very playful and super sweet!  hw+; 45lbs; 2 yrs old; bull mix; 6/27; Came In with Mia.  Note: Beautiful and sweet, chunky boy!  He didn't give me his ears for the photos and acted as if the sun was bothering his eyes.  I thought these photos turned out cute and showed his playful side.

Marie -safe

Petite and Patient.  Cute little Marie was a real crowd pleaser in her own quiet, unassuming ways.  This smaller framed, black and white sweetheart was turning all the heads as we gingerly headed out the front shelter gate.   Cautiously looking left and right, she was relieved to see a serene open field awaiting her along with two other dogs who were happy to see her.   A gentle natured, polite gal, Marie was super easy for the young youths to handle as we snapped away with pictures and encouraged everyone to play and interact with one another.   Marie nicely meets other dogs and provides a calm influence in a group setting.   We enjoyed watching her softly introduce herself to her new human and doggy friends and you will as well.  Note:  Marie was brought in as a stray by AC along with mason 1907.  She is very shy but very sweet.  HW-; 1 yr old; lab mix; 8/2; 30lbs


I'll watch the game from the sidelines please!   This mid-sized girl does not have much interest in being in the spotlight and in fact,  curling up on a soft spot and enjoying all the fun and games is really more my speed.   Looking at me, folks will correctly assume I've been on my own for a while now (I'm thin, my coat is patchy and I have heartworms) so simply getting my basic needs met ie food, clean water and shelter makes me feel very happy.  The other thing that made me happy the other day was to be selected to head out of the intake building to get some fresh air and wind on my face.  I really don't ask for much.  I am quiet, I pretty much keep to myself and slowly poke along on a leash walk.  I'm very polite and well mannered and nicely and gently meet folks and other dogs.   As I waited for another dog to join me on my walk,  I had a wonderful cat Ace, a big strappy male tabby, come to offer comfort to me on the front porch steps. I appreciated his kind, welcoming presence. I have a rather forlorn look and feel about me, I'll admit.  It's not been an easy life for me and I surely hope something wonderful awaits me.    After spending some time with my new human and doggy friends,  I started to smile and relax.   I'm happy to have folks come on by and pet me and love on me but I'm not yet at the point of really giving back.  It's been too hard for me and for too long to be able to allocate energy to do that.  Don't give up on me though.  My coat is starting to fill in, the awful scabby neck I arrived with is starting to heal over and my spirits are slowly starting to rise.   Won't you please be my new best friend and help me to be at my best?  Note: Marisa was brought in through community outreach as a stray. Found on Periwinkle St., Darlington. Marisa is very scared but very sweet when she warms up. walks well on a leash doesn’t seem to mind other dogs. Skin scrape was negative.  HW+; 35lbs; 3 yrs old; lab mix; 7/22


Jolly Little Fellow! Tipping the scales at just 30lbs,  I'm the perfect size pet for just about any home.   Polite and more mellow in my approach to life,  I'll admit I was super leery about leaving the safe confines of my kennel and exiting into the noisy outside shelter area.  Once I was let loose in the enclosed exercise field area though,  I realized I was in a good, safe spot and the fun began!   You would have been super pleased to see how gingerly and respectful I was around a more shy, overwhelmed dog. I gave her space as she needed it and then softly tried to nudge her to hang out with me.  I had two nice, young girls who patiently guided me around the enclosed area and tried to get me to play fetch and frisbee, but I said "no thanks."  My preference was to simply chill and enjoy shady spots on this hot summer day.  My name is Mason and if I had my druthers, I would opt for a home with kids and other dogs and perhaps even cats!  I like attention but don't need to be the center of it.  I'm a more low maintenance fellow who has many layers to him that will nicely unfold once I am tucked into my new home. Perhaps it will be with you? Note: Mason was brought in by AC as a stray found on Indian branch road.  He is a sweet heart and was brought in with Marie 1908.  HW-; 35lbs; 1 yr old; 8/2; lab mix

Mr Adaptable!   I've only been at the shelter for a few days and folks are raving about how easily I have settled in, made new friends and accepted the daily routine of being a pet at a busy shelter.    Genetically, I am graced with cattle dog genes but I think you'll find me a bit more chill and less "busy body" than the typical cattle dog.  I'm a pretty easy going, mild mannered guy who easily walks on a leash and meets folks and other 4 legged beings with the greatest of ease.   Happy, friendly and affectionate,  bring on the kids...bring on other dogs..and watch and see how wonderful I will fit in with all of them!   Note: Merlin was brought in by a member of the community as a stray.  He is a very sweet boy and very playful. HW-; 2-3 yrs old; lab mix; 7/29; 35lbs

Mia was brought in by AC as a canine seizure and hold detainer due to her owner getting in trouble with the law and abandoning his 2 dogs.  She is very playful and super sweet!  HW+; 1 yr old; bull mix; 56lbs; female.  Came in with Marcus. Might be prego. 6/27

Meet Miles, a very loving boy who enjoys time spent with his person. His foster dad says that Miles enjoys nothing more than being petted and loved and getting attention and affection. He's very friendly with all people and would love to have a person or family of his very own.  Miles would sooner not share his person's affection with any other pets, he says he is all the dog you need! While Miles would sooner be your one and only, he is fine seeing other dogs outside the home while on a walk or an adventure. Miles is very smart and would no doubt excel in a training program that could help him with his leash skills. He's an energetic boy and would be a great fit for an active person or family or someone looking for a hiking or jogging partner who can keep up with them. Miles is ready and waiting for the family or person he can call his very own, he says let's go!   He's no couch potato, although when it comes time to snuggle he's right there for you. Check out Miles, a great guy with the biggest heart around.  Note:  Miles was brought in as an owner surrender. The owner said they could no longer care for him. He is very sweet and affectionate.  47lbs; 3-4 yrs old; bull mix; 12/20/18; treated for HW's Feb 2018.

Morgan Teen Pup- FriendDaltonBrady

Happy to meet you!  My name is Morgan and I am happy, kissy central. Never meeting a stranger,  I am always open to saying hi to humans and dogs.  Being near others, brings me a real sense of happiness and with so much love and affection to share,  I think having a variety of folks in my life would allow me to really give back and make folks feel loved.   Already an excellent leash walker,  I have the perfect amount of puppy playfulness and cuddliness to serve even the most active family.   Tipping the scales over 25lbs,  my photo friend noticed that I had more large feet and feels I still have plenty of growing to do which will mean even more of me to love on YOU!  Well balanced and so darn pleasant to hang out with,  I'd love to meet your kids and/or dogs in your home and make them my new permanent best friends.  Ask for me Morgan, won't you?   Note: Morgan was brought in by AC as a stray. Found on south side dr., Hartsville.  Morgan is very sweet and playful!  HW-; 25lbs; 6-7 mos old; lab mix; 7/2; female
