G Pups x 3

Graham (male, 18.6lbs), Griffin (male, 22.6lbs),  Gregg (male)

3 mos old; lab mixes; 12/29 (intake weights from 1/16).  This litter came in by animal control. They have been very scared but are slowly coming around.

George is a Jack Russell with all that entails. He is smart, has lots of energy, loves attention, and gets along pretty well with all. He walks on a leash and may be housebroken but that would need to be checked out. He raises cain when there is a loose animal in the yard but it is mainly because he wants to play with them.  When put around cats he basically ignored them but if one ran, he might want to chase it. I don't think he would harm one if he caught them.  He might not be best around toddlers as, with his energy level, he might knock them down or startle them. I do think he would be great with preteen and up.  He really is a happy fellow who just needs a family or person to show him some attention and to share some love with. him.Note: George was brought in as an owner surrender.  HW+; 25lbs; 2-3 yrs old; JRT/Beagle mix; 10/10

Georgia Mom and Gabriela Pup

Georgia Mom, Gabriela Pup

Georgia was brought in as a stray by animal control. She does not like walking on a leash but is very sweet.  HW+; 49lbs; 1-2 yrs old; shep mix; 4/18.  Gabriela: 6 mos old, 32lbs; Timid but sweet.

Ginger was turned in by animal control. This was the fourth time that she was picked up running loose and the owner didn’t want her back. She is very well behaved and friendly.  Very gentle and polite girl.  Note: Goes by the name Coco. HW+; 73lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 1/29

March 24 Update: Ginger has been at the shelter a long time.  She is a quiet gal, friends with everyone.  Today she had the chance to come out of the shelter.  She had a blast.  Each dog she met she immediately went to asking if they would play with her.  Every time I sat down, this girl tried to get in my lap. 

Gino was a stray to a yard in Darlington in search of food. He was starving. He caught 3 chickens to try to feed himself. He was threatened to be shot for getting into the chicken coop. His sad eyes and malnourished body spoke to the heart of the homeowner. Though she loved her chickens very much (they even wore clothes so she really was devastated to lose them), it was clear to her that he was starving and just trying to survive. She fed him a few times off of her porch then trapped him and brought him in. Then it was learned that his job was broken so he really had been struggling in many ways to feed himself.  Note: Gino came in as an owner surrender.  He had a broken jaw and can only eat canned soup food.  HW+; male; lab mix; 26lbs; 1 yr old; 9/30.  Well mannered!!  Gino got along with Dublin (male senior), Cats with no issue.  I've also kid tested him, he's great, just a little body of wiggly love.

Feb 6: Gino is a love. Very friendly.  Has a smooth silky fur. Did great. Just loved all the attention

He has a shiny black coat with a white bib down the front, just as handsome as they come.  Hawkeye enjoys his time with people and is also fine with other dogs, so he'd make a wonderful companion if you have a friendly resident dog who is looking for a buddy.

Ju-Mi (Joo-Mee) means beautiful and that's just what this girl is. Ju-Mi is LOVE. Her true beauty shines past her scars. She is very affectionate, attentive to her people, such a true sweetheart. She deserves love and care forever. Cuddling along with belly-rubs while staying warm inside on a cold winters night, chasing the ball, sniffing around the yard, sun-bathing on a warm sunny day, back-rubbing in the grass, and relaxing in her crate with toys are just some of her favorite past-times. She is walking good on harness, she is excellent in her crate, has learned her foster routine quickly, enjoys her healing baths, loves a good meal and wants nothing more than to please us.

Junior - Video VideoWithCarlyle -safe

Junior was dropped off as an owner surrender. The owner had a hard time house breaking him. He's a little skittish but is still friendly.  He is sweet and a good size! I've met him and love him.

King- Video

King was an owner surrender because his owner had to move.  He was very sweet through the intake process though.  2/3; HW+; 74lbs; 6 yrs old; mastiff/shep mix

More about me March 21: Folks say I am one GREAAAAAAAAAAAT dog and what's not to love about super sized, smiling me?   You should see how politely I greet new human friends and wish to engage new doggy friends with some good ol' play time.   I can be a little excitable when you first meet me (but who can blame me when I LOVE company so very much!!) but I'm good about dialing down and then accompanying you on a more brisk paced walk.   Only due to my size and initial extra energy in seeing humans,  slightly older/more sturdy kids are best suited for me and please, no cats.  Now, they are just too enticing for me.  


She showed up in someone's yard on Old Camden near the Pineridge community. The finder called city AC, couldn't help because it was in county, SO couldn't come due to not an emergency. Finder posted on lost and found seeking help to get her to DCHS because she was leaving for a flight to Arizona. Someone gave her a ride to shelter. There wasn't enough time to gather info on her at the finder's house except for saying she seemed super sweet, friendly, loving, wanted to go in the house. The finder chose to not post her as found because of the questionable area. I have attached the pics that the finder took.   Note: Korra was brought in today by someone for Pam D. I believe. She is a very sweet girl that was so calm during intake and very submissive. She just wanted someone to give her love and was very gentle the whole time. I absolutely love this little girl. She has some fly bites on her ears that didn't look too bad.  HW+; 42lbs; 2-3 yrs old; bull mix; 4/14

Louis -safe

Update Oct 9: I've been though an awful lot.  Found roadside, hit by a car,  I was rushed to the vet where I rec'd intense care for the swelling in my brain and around my eyes.   While at the vet,  x-rays revealed I had previously suffered some type of trauma to my hind quarters as my pelvis and back leg were both fractured but had already started to heal.   I'm getting around like a real champ now!   The swelling has all but subsided and I'm feeling much, much better.  Thank you for asking.   My foster family says I am THE BEST, well foster mom certainly does, as I follow her around everywhere and simply adore her but the two males in the house, although very patient and mild mannered, make me a bit nervous so for now I am keeping my distance from them.   I am slowly allowing them to start walking me outside so we are working on building our relationship.   Foster mom feels a male had previously hurt me as I can cower around men in particular when they try to pet me but I can also be very cautious in meeting new folks in general.   I'm getting along with the other pets in the house...cats and dogs...but sometimes,  if I am feeling a little overwhelmed by them, I give them a polite warning and they nicely give me some more space.  I'm very responsive to verbal commands from foster mom as I quickly come when called and boy do I love it when she says, "Up, want to go outside?"  The yard is a happy place for me as I can get some fresh air, run and play and chase a squirrel or two.   Day to day,  my foster family is making me feel more at ease and I am gaining confidence in meeting nice folks. For now, I am thinking my ideal new home would be with females only but I've leaving my options open and hope that I can overcome my fears and feel happy in a home with both sexes.   Note: Luna was HBC and taken directly to the vet.  HW-; 3 yrs old; 8 lbs; chi/dachsi mix; 9/13; female; housebroken 

Update Nov 26: She healed nicely. She has an old injury on her back leg that she walks fine with however when she runs she picks it up. She is attached to me. She has learned to accept Mitchell and my son Lee. She does bark at a stranger. However when I take her to the vet for a bath she loves everyone. She gets along with my dogs and cats. She even plays with the foster kittens.

Update Nov 29: Luna came to us from an individual who found her hurt on the side of the road. She had been hit by a car. Her eyes were bulging a d nose bleeding.  She is a good girl. She is very attached to me. It has taken some time however she has gotten where she trust my don Lee and Mitchell.  They can now per her. I believe someone mistreated her. Her back leg had an old healed injury. She walks great however when running she will pick it up. Gets along with my dogs and cats. Plays with the foster kittens. She will bark when a stranger comes up. However when I take her to AAH for baths she loved everyone. I believe the growling and barking are  defensive. I believe she would do better placed with a woman just because she took right to me.

Mary Joe

Mary Joe was brought in as a stray by animal control. She is a little shy and needs some work walking on a leash but she is very friendly.  HW-; 37lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 3/22

Matt- Video

Friendly, happy, playful boy. Loves everyone and everything. Found as a stray with an embedded collar. Voted "best personality" for his doggie superlative.  1-2 yrs old; 50lbs; HW-

From the foster dad who found him November 30:  Last night Matt was found in the middle of Clyde Road near the football stadium in Hartsville.  He was in the middle of the road but moved out and then right back into the middle road again. When the person stopped and called to him, he wagged his tail and came right over it which point she so under his neck look like raw meat. She knew he needed help but didn’t know what to do and call me at which point I told her  to bring him to my house. There was no active bleeding so I just put him in a kennel for the night or he wouldn’t be in the dirt and then took him to Anderson this morning. He’s only about a-year-old and is a super friendly boy with a calm and happy disposition.

Update April 15: Matt is doing great. He has had three different roommates for varying times.   I had to separate the roommates a couple times because Matt is more submissive and they weren't letting him eat or were eating all of his food plus theirs. He is just about starved for affection and can't get enough. He has a great appetite and is in wonderful health.

The ball hog of the year award goes to... Max! This boy knows he loves his ball. The first thing he did when he came into the oasis was grab a ball and toss it in the air. He had to pick up every toy and play with it, but his favorite was the yellow tennis ball. You can get this boy's attention with any toy and he will be the most well behaved pup in the world in hopes that you'll let him play with it. Max is a goofy boy and a big lover. He loved getting attention from all the humans, and didn't mind meeting a few cats along the way, even though he preferred to ignore them and give his handler all his attention.  hw-; 60lbs; 2-3 yrs old; bull mix; 10/10/15

Foster Update: 
1.      He’s a dog that likes to be on the move.  Would do very well with an active family.  He’s not a hyper dog, he is just smart and looks for something to do.   Needs work walking on leash.  He improved quite a bit, while I had him.
2.      He’s sweet and loving and wants to please.  He’s not goofy cuddly, but wants affection.
3.      Great with ‘sit’ command.  He’s very smart.
4.      Wonderful in crate and is potty trained.
5.      Good with other dogs.  He required a bit of introduction to my alpha male, because Max is fearless and is comfortable getting close quickly.  My dog needed time and after a week, they both got along great.  He is very playful with dogs.  That could be good or bad depending on the other dog.
6.      My one concern with Max is how possessive he is with toys.  I would not recommend him in a home with small children.  If a young child walked up to take a toy or object away from Max he would snap/bite.  This is also the case with dogs and should be factored into a family with other dogs.  He simply doesn’t share well.  My dogs didn’t try to take toys away from Max so it was never a problem, but with a different dog it could have been.  He responded very well to an e-collar.  I used the vibration mode and the “drop” command to begin teaching Max how to give up a toy.  I didn’t work with him long enough to get him to “drop” without the vibration.  I think it would take several months of training for him to work through his ownership issues.  This was a single-focus issue for him because Max is not an aggressive dog.   
7.      Max is not a good fit for a first time dog owner, but would be great with an experienced owner who understands strong willed dogs.  He would thrive in an environment with a moderate amount of rules/training.  This would allow him to use his smart mind and would allow him to learn not to be dominant around his toys.
