Everyone loves Pluto!  And what it NOT to love about this sleek jacketed love bug that's never met a stranger?  Pluto was our super star last weekend as he nicely mixed and mingled with a variety of other dogs.  Keeping a steady paced wagging tail and approachable smile, he had such a great time taking in the fresh air,  getting some exercise and making new friends.    Good natured, sweet and playful,  Pluto has a goofy side to him that simply makes you smile.   Ask for Pluto today if you are in the market for a true family dog!   Note: Pluto was found as a stray on E Mciver rd. He was brought in by animal control. He is a sweetheart.   2-21-19; Bull mix; 47 pounds ;1 year
HW+; Treated for hw's 3/27.  Pluto was found as a stray on E Mciver rd. He was brought in by animal control. He is a sweetheart.

Pluto is a good-natured love bug.  He is sharing his kennel with a male dog Oscer and shy female Gloria.  He is playful and sweet.  He is a strong boy who does pull some on the lead but very eager to please.

Foster Mom Update May 6: Pluto is very very puppy-like. He loves loves loves to play and greets each one of my dogs with a play bow. I have some "unadoptables" at my house with not-so-nice temperaments and some senior dogs from the shelter, so Pluto's owner will need to be sure he doesn't try to befriend EVERY dog. In other words, he thinks everyone will be his new best friend. This can be a good thing, but his owner will need to be careful introducing him to others. He goes from "Hi" to "let's play" in 5 seconds.  But the important thing is he does not play rough. He plays gently. He is kissy, huggy, affectionate, and silly--what everyone loves in a bully. He would be fine with children over 8 only because his size and playfuless may knock down a toddler. 

I would encourage his new owner to take him to basic obedience training. He needs to learn basic manners such as sit, don't pull on leash, and wait for treats. He is not disobedient at all--he has just never been trained. I suspect that his former owner did not tolerate his puppy-like playfulness because he is somewhat head-shy if I reach over his head quickly. I suspect he has been hit before. He doesn't drop and roll over  in submission, but I can tell that he has been yelled at. He just ducks if I move too quickly above his head reaching for something. This does not happen every day----just a few times I've noticed because I look for things like that. 

He can now be trusted with a few friends in my backyard to play all day. This has been so good for him because he doesnt' have to stay in a rate all day while I'm at work. I keep him and 2-3 of my females in my fenced back yard, and they romp and play and cuddle all day. I experimented with this on the weekends when I was home to monitor before I let them do this while I was away. Pluto does not try to escape the yard, and he has not been mischievous (digging, etc.)  While he was in a crate all day, he was fine----did not try to escape, did not chew the crate, nothing like that. 

Notes: NO cats for Pluto.
Pluto needs to be crated in the car because of his puppy-like antics.
He is super friendly with everybody and anybody, but he does need basic obedience, such as leash walking, sitting, and not greeting everyone over-exuberantly. He would interview well for bully-lovers who love a kissy, goofy bully.

R x 2 Pups

Remington (male, 24lbs),  Rhea (female, 22.4lbs)

These pups were brought in by a member of the community as strays.  Both are very playful and sweet!   3 mos old; 6/8; lab mix




Rachel was brought in by AC as a stray. Found on woodmill st., Hartsville.  Rachel is a very sweet girl. Gets along well with other dogs. Seems to not be bothered by the yard cats. Walks well on a leash.  HW+; 44lbs; 1 yr old; lab mix; 5/1

Raphael 


Raphael was brought in by AC due to being abandoned by his owner.  Raphael is a very sweet boy that just wants some love. HW+; 45lbs; 3 yrs old; lab mix; 6/12



Razzie rides wonderfully in a car, interested in seeing everything but stays seated looking out the window and leaning to you for a quick kiss.  I've done a kid test on him and he passed with no issues, you can handle him and lean across, fingers in the ears and mouth, you name it.. he is fine with it.  He does know the "sit" command and will, I am not sure what else he knows but he definitely knows that one.  He walks extremely well on a leash, no pulling and just walks at your speed.  

When meeting other dogs, you have to make him do nose to butt as he wants to jump right in to play.  He has met Happy, Hampton, Nyla and Harper in the past two days.  He was a bit overwhelming to Happy because of his size, although she ran back at him to play, but would run from him knowing he was on a leash still.   

Note: Smoothy, Pinky and Razzie are loving, well-socialized and friendly, greeting new people easily. They all have plenty of energy, but not crazy energy. They get out together to run and play.   They lived in a home with Tex, Annie and several toy breed guys, now all safe.  Note: Razzie was brought in by animal control.  He was from a hoarding situation and has been living at bridge.  9/6;  2yrs old; HW+:  46lbs.  Posted 12/19/18

River- Sponsored- NewVideoFeb NewVideoFeb





Uniquely me!  That's what I am!  I heard those silly humans talking about me, wondering what kind of dog I was.  One of them even said maybe I was part hyena with my funny face.  Well that IS silly.  But I don't let it bother me.  Actually I have a pretty cheerful disposition in spite of my current situation.  I like meeting new humans and I love playing with my roommate Leta.  Doggy wrestling is so much fun!  I was getting full marks with the kitties too, pretending I didn't even see that kitty lying in the grass next to me.  But then it happened.  That kitty jumped up and darted off and I couldn't resist trying to chase her, it looked like such fun!  I am hoping someone out there is looking for a mid-sized, fun-loving bouncy girl with magnificent ears to join their family.   1 yr old; hw-; 7/18/15; 31 lbs 

Note: This girl will certainly turn heads. She plays well with others, but prefers to be the alpha. If you’re into unwinding on the couch, she’ll watch Netflix as long as you can; if you don’t mind petting her.

Update Dec 2018: River is about 5-6 years old. She has degenerative joint disease in her back knees, luxating patellas, and a torn ACL that has reattached with scar tissue. Surgery to correct all this would be about $8,000. Right now she in on an anti-inflammatory , pain-reducing regimen.  River is an alpha. She gets along with most male dogs who will let her be the queen bee. She does not get along with most female dogs.  River is great with all humans and tolerant with children and puppies. She loves to ride in the car and go on leash walks.  She loves to run, but is in pain afterward.

More about me June 2: Roberta is a playful, nice medium sized girl who walks well on the leash and is friendly and social with everyone she meets! She's been introduced to both male and female dogs and was happy to make friends with both.  People are also lots of fun and mean playtime, petting, and treats! She has beautiful coloring, a lovely chocolate brown over top of a white coat with a white blaze down her face. She's very unique and looks like she's a white dog wearing a brown coat. Our volunteer who spent time with her recently called her a GREAT dog.  This awesome girl would love nothing more than a forever home where she can know the love and affection of a family or person who is devoted to her.  She will pay your affection back a hundred times over with years of love and loyalty. She'd be lots of fun to walk around a neighborhood or cuddle with on the couch. Check out GREAT Roberta, she's ready and waiting for that home to call her own.

Wyatt is a real catch! hw-; male; 5/2014; 2-3 yrs old.  Note:  Shown with
Cleopatra (black dog).

More about me Sept 2017: Sweet Wyatt … I would so love to give him better than what I have for him right now.  He is a great dog, but he is strong and full of energy.  There is no denying he is a pit with his big head and jaw, but to me it only makes him look like he’s smiling all the time.  He is a gorgeous boy and I love him.  In his play he means me no harm, but he often scratches or bruises me just from his sheer strength and eagerness to play.  He has had more than 15 female kennel mates since we’ve had him and never a moment of problem.  He plays hard, but there is no aggression … just the joy of a teenage boy.  He gets overwhelmed with my crowd of dogs and is why I keep him in his kennel.  He does great one on  one.  He gets free time 2 to 3 times a day to run.  He has food allergies and a grain free diet is best for him.  I have had him around children before and he did well.  He doesn’t know his strength, so I had to watch him closely with them but he loved all the attention.   He does great and minds me well on the leash.  I know the odds of getting him out with so many wonderful pits at the shelter are slim.
