Girly Girl- VideoWithBarryMarch -safe


Cute and spunky!  Girly Girl came into the shelter with her brother Bubba and they can usually be found snuggled up together in their kennel.  Girly Girl is more outgoing than Bubba.  She is confident and curious and she wants to be in on everything going on around her.  She is playful and engaging and has the cutest little underbite.  She was very interested in the kitties.  Not sure what she wanted to do with them when she got them.  Note: Sister of Bubba. Sweet girl.  1/27; female; 33lbs; 1-2 yrs old; hw-

Gracie Chi


Gracie was brought in by AC from Darlington. She is precious. AC said Gracie was living a pile of garbage along the side of the road. Poor baby!  1/12; 5-6 years old; 10lbs; hw -; Med Update Jan 13She's not pregnant as we thought. On X-ray it's hard to tell whether it's a tumor or constipation. She is full of poop and dirt and she's dehydrated. Her poop is so dry it falls apart like powder when u try to pick it up. She was found living in a trash pile and when she got to the shelter she had dirt and meat stuck in her teeth. She was prob eating dirt and rocks. Poor thing! They r giving her fluids and lactulose.

Heather 




I just wanna have fun.  Bouncy happy playful young girl who loves getting attention from people.  She is always wearing a smile.  Freely gives kisses.  She was rooming with Emmett hound and they were fine together o their walk.  Note: 35lbs; 1 yr old; 1/25; female; bully mix. AC stray from Lydia. Very sweet. Wiggly happy tail. hw-

HW+;  Very shy and shut down.  1/26. Possibly pregnant. Hope is blind in one eye.  She was terrified upon arrival but is doing better now as she takes a spoon of food from me.  The shelter is overwhelming for her. 

Update Feb 26: The video is taken right after we moved her out of the intake building.  This dog was poled to come into the shelter.  The first day Wendy and I met her she had blood from the front of her kennel to the back where she was cowering.  it was a sight I don't see often, but one that made me realize this girl had lost trust in people.  The team has been working with her and Thursday it was time for us to make a move.  We not only got her out of intake but we also were able to complete the intake process.

Huckleberry Beagle- VideoMarch VideoMarch1


This is huckleberry he is owner surrender.  He has his AKC papers but they never registered him. Loving/Friendly dog. male; 3/14; 30lbs; 3 yrs old;  HW-.  He currently has a male room mate it is going well.

More about me: Huckleberry is a cute little beagle boy.  Like most beagles, he loves to sniff around and explore.  I did not try to touch his ears or head because I know he has the bad ear infection but he did not show any signs of pain or reactivity today.  Walked fine on the leash and climbed in my lap for petting and attention.  He is rooming with beagle/hound Oscar.

Huggins- VideoMarch18



I'm not sure exactly how he came in but he had a prolapsed rectum and is now on meds and in an ecollar. He's super friendly and wants all the attention he can get. He is super skinny.  hw+;  3/10; 2 yrs old; 43 lbs (emaciated); bull mix; male. Note: abdominal xray full of trash/gravel/stones. Huggins passed the garbage out of his system and had successful anal surgery.

Jacques- VideoMay


Jacques has a 6/6 heart murmur.  His heart is enlarged and he has been put on enalapril meds.  He has heartworm disease to boot.  He is not a candidate for heartworm treatment, unfortunately.   He will need to be on Hartgard every month to help him with the worms.  He needs a great hospice home where he can be a couch potato for however long he has left.  He should not be allowed to be overly active or have bursts of activity. Friendly boy! Note: This is Jacques.  He is a chi mix that showed up at a lady's house and she had been feeding him for about a week.  HW+ ; 4-6 yrs old; male; 4/9; 12lbs

Extra about Jacques: He has a 5/6 heart murmur. He is the sweetest chi i have ever met. Good with cats,  dogs both big and small.  Loves people. He became a quick staff favorite today when i decided to take photos of him.

Update Dec 11: Jacques is such a good boy! He just needs a nice couch or soft lap to rest his head at the end of the day. He doesn't know  or even care his heart doesn't beat like everyone else's. It doesn't bother him at all. He's great with all of our little dogs. Don't you just love that face?

Jacque- VideoMarch



He's a sweet boy that is a little shy. He was very polite and walked great on a lead. He was turned in by his owners bc they are separating.   hw+;  45lbs; 4 yrs old; border collie/cattle dog mix; 2/21

Jameson


He's very friendly and loves attention. Very sweet boy. He such a pretty boy and sat on command for me.  Sweet happy hound!  Jameson is rooming with pretty lady Cinnamon and he met fellow hound Charles on a walk today and did fine. hw-; 46lbs; 3-4 yrs old; hound mix; 3/3

Jose- Pug/Chi -VideoOct VideoWithDominic


Hey!! Remember me??  It's Jose!  I came into the shelter as a stray 3 yrs ago and after being in foster care since then, my foster mom is hoping she can help move me into a new home...a home where I can lead a more full life and get all the attention I really crave!  Now 7-8 yrs old,  I'm a little bit on the chubby side (foster mom has SUCH fabulous snacks for me!) but I have SO much love to give.  Please read on (notes from Foster Mom) and let me know if you feel I am the perfect one for you!   

More about Jose: I think Jose deserves a better life than I can give him. I have to keep him outside in a kennel because he barks A LOT (like a chihuahua). I also can't crate him for more than a few hours because he lifts his leg and pees out the side of his crate or he poops in his crate then dances in it.  He DOES get out and runs and romps in the whole yard when I'm home, so he is not in his kennel 24/7.  He will need to be with a human companion who can let him out to potty regularly. He does get along with all dogs small and large and does not bother my cats. He does bark like a little dog can if a big dog towers over him, but my dogs are so easy going, they don't react. He will need to be in a home with an easy going adult dog if one is present.

Jose loves to ride in the car and to be with his person. He loves to sit with you on the couch or on the bed. Care needs to be exercised when picking him up. He has a small scar on his side, so he is cautious about people touching him there. Also, it will take him a while to learn to trust his new human. He does NOT need to be a in a home with children.  Also, he WILL mark in the house when he is nervous. If I bring a large male foster dog home or if he is in a new home for the first time, he will mark on the walls.   15lbs (overweight); Nov 2016; treated for HW's 2013; 7-8 yrs old; pug/chi mix.  Great with other dogs and cats.  No kids please.  On meds for seizures given 2/day ~ about $20/mo in cost.

Ken- VideoWithBarryMarch VideoMarch VideoMarchA- sponsored for pull fees



Look at this hunk!  Hard to believe this is the same dog who came into the shelter looking so thin and threadbare.  Ken looks fabulous now and he is so happy to finally be released from his confinement in the intake building.  Ken is energetic and strong but he does love his walks and getting a chance to explore.  He is friendly and social and not too proud to do a bit of snuggling either.  Ken would be best suited to a home with no feline friends because they are just too tempting to chase. As you can see in his video, Ken met another friendly male dog, Barry, and tails were wagging the entire time. Ken is just gorgeous with his beautiful coat and striking eyes. If you want to have the most handsome guy on the block, check out our guy Ken. You can also see in his video how happy he was to be spending time out of his kennel with one of the shelter volunteers. Ken loves people and can't wait to meet his forever family. Meet Ken and be prepared to fall in love!  AC stray. HW pos. 10/21; male; 36lbs; 2-4 yrs old; March 18: Ken has put on some much needed pounds and weighs closer to 60lbs

Kira



The totally kissable Kira has arrived at the shelter, and despite her past is ready for a fun-filled future! Kira came in to the shelter in the middle of May in horrible shape. This poor girl has clearly never had an easy life, but she doesn't let that stop her. She was emaciated, had hair-loss, and a heart full of worms but her tail never stopped wagging. She's so grateful for anything that you can give her even if it's just a quick pat on the head. She'll be sure to thank you for your troubles with a big sloppy kiss. An old soul that is super easy going Kira isn't bothered by sharing her space with dogs and cats. Go ahead and bring the kids too..it'll be extra hands to rub her! After living through so much hardships, I can't wait to see her finally happy and in a home.   5/20/15; 10 yrs old; treated for HW's . 

Update Jan 2016:  Kira had rescue but as she regained her health and her confidence,  we found she was no longer interested in sharing her life with other dogs. Her rescue is foster based  (hence homes already stocked with other dogs) so she lost her rescue and is in need once again.  

Lacey 


Lacey is doing well, plays with all other dogs, loves all people and appears to be house trained.  She was hit by a car and has recovered from her broken pelvis. She is ready to head home now!  Lacey, kid tested.. I picked her up, touched her everywhere.. she's awesome.  Lacey has been out with males and females.  She plays just like a puppy. No aggression whatsoever. HW-


She is super sweet and afraid. I can't tell if she is preg or not. She has a firm belly, but not large.  She has an owner that lets them run wile he is out of town. Picked up by AC.  Come in with Cagney, her best friend!  female; greyhound/lab; 50 lbs; no HW test; 2-3 yrs old. Video with Carlton note: Lacey wasn't comfortable with meeting Carlton.  She wasn't aggressive just very stressed.  We noticed that when we separated her and Cagney, all she wanted to do was get back to him. I don't think she was comfortable with meeting someone else at the time.  Just very nervous.  Not at all aggressive.  Just uneasy.

More about me: Need hugs?  Lacey's got them!  She loves to be right next to her person for reassurance.  She will lean on your leg when walking into an unfamiliar area.  She is more confident when hanging out with her friend Cagney.  She is a gorgeous girl!

Lisa


1 yr old; 3/21; 30lbs; HW-; lab mix.  She is very sweet and very afraid. Note: She is a timid girl.  Some of our junior volunteers gave her a bath before her photo shoot.  I thought she was still a pup but listed as 1 year.  She was caught bouncing around with Dolly and her pup Diana.  She tends to be more reserved around humans and is definately overwhelmed by the shelter environment. 

Lucy Super Senior -sponsored for pull fees -VideoJan



Lucy loves her bed and never complains!  We love Lucy!  8 yrs old; female; 12/5; HW+ (advanced stages- her heart is symptomatic and enlarged).  She has a broken pelvis.  Her left hip is out of socket, but it can't be put back into socket at this time because of the broken pelvis.  She should heal fine with strict confinement. She has a broken jaw from long ago that has self healed. It does not affect her ability to eat and is not a candidate for surgery at this time.  She was found roadside hit by a car.  Beagle/dachsi mix; 26lbs

My name is Luna, but you can call me Bunny if you like because my ears are bunny-tall.  I am a friendly out-going girl and part of my responsibility here has been trying to help my very shy roommate Rambo come out of his shell a little.   Some might say I am a little thick in the middle, although I prefer athletic, albeit in more of a shot put kind of way than distance running.  I am a bit of a social butterfly so if there is a party going on nearby I expect to be invited, however I won't embarrass you by dancing on the table with a lampshade on my head.  I am a strong girl so I will need some help me with my leash manners, but I do enjoy a nice walk and hopefully we can take one together quite often.  If you are in the market for a new friend, faithful but not flashy, to join you on adventures exciting and mundane, I think we would make a great team.  Note: HW neg. Ac stray. Friendly. 7/2; female; 41 lbs; 1-2 yrs old.  Extra Note:  Luna was adopted in Sept and given away after a few weeks.  She was found wandering in Florence.  Due to no fault of her own,  her person was ultimately not able to care for her.  No cats please!  Note from high school volunteer:  energetic dog that loves to run and play.  She has big floppy ears that will work their way into your heart.  It is hard for her to sit still.  She loves treats.


More about me Oct 30: Luna got a small taste of freedom after being adopted but now finds herself back at the shelter.  She is taking it all in stride and hasn't let her current state of affairs dampen her spirits.  She is rooming with cheerful young guy Cyler this time around and she is happy for the company.  Luna is excited for every opportunity to go for a walk and she does pull on the lead in her eagerness to be out and about.  But she follows directions well and she is just as content to take a break and hang out with her person, rolling in the grass and getting a few belly rubs.  This girl is patiently waiting for her REAL happily-ever-after.

Update from Jr Volunteer: sweet, smiley, loves kisses, energetic, affectionate


Beautiful sweet girl.  Seems to be pretty mellow.  I think lazy was the word I heard.   Note: She is the mom of Sissy. She's super sweet and has been spending her time laying in her igloo waiting for someone to come pay her attention. She was surrendered to Debbie A.   Hw-; 4 yrs old; catahoula mix; female; 2/10; 76lbs

Update March 1: Maggie and Sissy - Maggie and Sissy are a sweet mother-daughter pair.  Sissy is a tripod.  She lost her front leg after an incident at her last home.  They are both really sweet and enjoy playing and going on walks.  They both like cats.  Sissy particulary likes to be friendly with them.  They are a super sweet pair that love to snuggle and want a good home.

Malla- sponsored for pull fees

December 2015, December 2015, January, March

March

Malla is very sweet but very shy. She also has Demodex and Pyroderma. She is not spayed yet until her skin heals some. She is not a fear biter---I can handle her very well and do anything with her. However, she is very timid with humans. She is in my house so that she is forced to interact with me. She loves loves loves playing with a puppy foster I have now, and would really make fast progress if she were around other out-going dogs more often. (My personal dogs are old and sleep a lot, so this puppy foster is the only one interested in playing with her right now.) Her new foster mom would need to medicate her skin as well as help her become more socialized. She is a sweet girl, about 35 lbs and about 1 year old. I suspect that she never had much human interaction during her younger months. Note: Came in with Nissie and Gretel. She is friendly just scared.  hw-; 12/10; 1 yr old

Update March 21: She had 2 rounds of AB before her scabby skin would heal. Since I've been using the special benzoyl peroxide shampoo, she has turned a corner.  She loves Tasha, who mentors her and plays gently with her.

Mandy- Came in with Virgil and Morgan (safe)



I am a hound lover so when I saw these 3 new intakes yesterday I had to meet them.  They are gorgeous hounds with soft features and mellow personalities to match.  Morgan is the most outgoing and the most comfortable walking on lead.  She is also in the best physical condition.  Mandy and Virgil are very thin and bony and neither was comfortable yet walking on lead.  Poor Virgil was not into the photo shoot as he was suffering from a painful injury to his back leg and had been stuck in a crate for hours for his visit to the vet.  All 3 hounds became more relaxed and comfortable after they spent a little time together in the med room during intake.  They were gently playful and the girls comforted Virgil as he was nursing his injury.  Morgan came out to meet 2 other dogs in the office (male and female) and did fine.  At one point she even tried to climb in the lap of one of the volunteers.  All are very sweet with typical easy-going hound personalities.  Love these three! Note: She came in with Virgil and Morgan. All three are amazing dogs. Very calm and polite. They are all very skinny and went into foster with Taylor A.  hw-; 2-3 yrs old; 30lbs; hound mix; female; 2/3

Manny- VideoMarch

Manny came in with his friend Moe. He is very sweet and terrified.  Hw neg.  3/16; male; Weimaraner mix; 3-5 yrs old; 56lbs

Max



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

Update from Jr Volunteer: excellent physical condition, pulls a lot when walking, likes to run with you, high energy, loves attention, likes hugs and cuddles, curious

Max Super Senior- sponsored for pull fees



Update Nov 2: He's gained a whopping 18 lbs since intake weighing in at 62 lbs today. But he's still so very skinny- can see his ribs, spine, hip bones and hind leg bones are protruding still. But the vet was happy with his progress. I'd noticed him coughing some last week but his lungs were good. His blood panel was also good.  The vet thinks he's more like 8-10 yrs versus the 15 that ac was told by his former owners.  He's good to go now for getting his vaccinations. I will take him to the shelter Thursday after work. Already neutered.  And he was diagnosed with "happy tail". This condition involves the occasional bloody tip of the tail due to extremely frequent and fast tail wagging- even when in a crate or puppy corral. The vet told me to use Neosporin for this.  Great with my dogs although he likes to chase my cats! 44lbs;  9/24 intake;  His person died and the family brought him in one week later. He was super thin and very depleted. Immediately went into foster care.  HW+

Micah- safe


Can sit in command. He is friendly and wants to hang out with you. Very energetic.  47 lbs; male; terrier mix; 3/23; 4 yrs old; HW+

Millicent -safe


Nice dog. Ac stray.  hw neg; female; 33 lbs; 3 yrs old; beagle



This is the famous #810 that everybody has been talking about. She has come along way since coming in over a month ago and still needs sometime to come out of her shyness. We did not do a heartworm test on her because she is still cautious with her legs being touched (not aggressive though). She let james put his hand in her mouth and finishe the regular intake woth no problem. We have her in a kennel beside gaby. 2-3 yrs old; April 2016 intake; female; hw-

More about me: I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Millie walking on lead through the crowd toward our group at the Grateful Dog event.  From a dog the was completely shut down in the intake building to a dog that is walking comfortably through a noisy crowd of people and dogs, she has made huge strides.  I think getting an escape from the shelter was just what she needed to boost her confidence and spirit.  She is still a shy girl and after a little while she retreated to a more quiet corner to sit and watch, but she did amazingly well.   July 23 2016



More about me Sept: Millie has been in foster with Katie, where she blossomed. Then she spent the weekend with the Ingrams. Around their confident dogs, she came out of her shell even more. From Mama Ingram: She is wonderful with the foster puppy Jhett.  She is excellent on a lead and kennels very nicely.  Timid, but with time she will do very well.   She has also been exposed to cats with no issues.    House trained.   Very nice girl that will make someone with patience a good companion.  Millie is the shy brindle dog who was kenneled with Sarge and then another male to help her confidence.


Sept 26 Update: She started at the shelter very very shy, but after volunteers took her to adoption events off campus, Millie realized how great life could be! She surprised everyone by blossoming in public!  Her time was up at the shelter, but volunteers were determined to keep her out of danger while she continued to come out of her shell. Foster moms/dads have kept Millie at their homes, giving her good experiences and helping her to gain confidence. She is now ready for her forever home. 


Moe and his best friend came in from AC. They are alleged cat killers. Neighbor said not true. They are terrified. It's sad.  male; 3/16; Weimaraner; 3 yrs old; weight?; HW?.  Came is with Manny.
