FriendNina -safe





Miss Manners.  Nancy is just THE NICEST dog.  Ever!  Although I recently met a lot of pets at the shelter, she is my PICK!    Nancy was so calm and composed as she nicely waited front and center in her kennel to head out for a walk, that seemingly a small child could have walked her to the front grassy field.  She's that terrific.  Nancy was perfect in meeting dogs on our walk today.  Very considerate and never pushy,  she was at great ease and took everything in stride in meeting a male and female dog on our outing.   Nancy is never in any rush and so gently loving, cuddly and affectionate.   In snapping pictures, her concern was more about the person she was with than the funky lady with the camera in her hand.    As such,  you will see several pics of her looking with great fondness at her new human friend.   At the turn of the century,  pits were known for their maternalistic/nanny skills and gheez, Nancy is loaded with this trait.  Mellow and not really asking very much from her person,  Nancy had the best time rolling in the grass and getting belly rubs and then simply taking a leisurely paced stroll with her human and another dog nearby.  You'll be missing out if you don't visit and consider Nancy for your home.  Come on by today, won't you?  Note: Nancy was brought in by animal control as a stray found on thousand Oaks Dr., Darlington. She is a very sweet and loving girl walks well on a leash and seems to do well with other dogs.  HW+; 49lbs; 2 yrs old; bull mix; 9/13


Tasha (aka Natasha) is looking for her furever home. She has a beautiful brindle coat and a pretty face that you can't forget. At 6-7 years old, she enjoys a lot of snuggle time on the couch after her playtime. A home with a male her size who can match her play speed would be best, but she does play with males and females at her foster home now. She is crate trained, housebroken, HW negative, 60 lbs. She loves to ride in the car and will hop right in and lie on the back seat.  Posted July 2019










Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!  If Nina could speak,  surely this would be her motto in life.  Nina is good, honest fun.  This sleek, cream jacketed lady smiles non stop and her tail is a constant whirl of activity!  Never meeting a stranger, the more contacts she can make, the better!  She had THE best time running around our enclosed exercise area and then meeting another dog and two young girls on her outing was a huge WOW moment for her.  One might have thought she had just won the lottery!  A good, steady leash walker,  Nina loves to go and do.  Super social, friendly, affectionate and outgoing,  life will simply be greatly enhanced with this wiggly girl by your side.  It's hard to not feel happy and loved when Nina is around.   Come by today see why Nina is the perfect girl to meet all of your pet needs!   Note: Nina was brought in by AC as a stray found on Mineral Springs Rd., Darlington. She is very sweet and loving walks well on a leash doesn’t seem to mind other dogs.  hw+; 29lbs; 2 yrs old; terrier mix; 8/8



Onyx was brought in by a member of the community that had him for 6 months that was trying to find him a good home but could not. Onyx is very sweet! Loves to snuggle and muzzle up to you. Very playful. Walks well on a leash. HW-; 65lbs; 1 yr old; lab mix; 6/28; hw-.  Adopted mid July.  Returned mid Sept. 




Update Sept 23:  All you need is love and ME!  I'm a big, solid fellow who easily draws in folks to come on over to say "hi."  My broad grin and steady wagging tail, coupled with my shiny jet black coat is all that it takes to lure over the humans.  This makes me very happy.  I was in a home for a couple of months but sadly, my older couple found I was "too much dog" for them, so I am back at square one and in the hunt for a new home.   I'm a good, steady leash walker and really love going and doing.  I can be over excitable when I see new dogs for the first time but then nicely settle in and I let them do their thing and I do my thing!  If given a choice,  I think being in a home where I am the only pet might be the best choice for me.   Cats are definately too tempting for me but maybe, just maybe there are other companion dogs out there that would suit my style.  A more sturdy, experienced doggy handler would also be a wonderful match for me as I have muscles and some brawn to contend with but with the right person, certainly I'm a very workable and yes, super enjoyable kind of guy.  Would love for you to come on by and give me a chance at an interview.  I think we could make a fast love connection!

Penelope Teen Pup- FriendTiffany -safe


Hw neg; 11/19; stray; 33lbs; lab mix; 7 mos old




Pete is medium energy , loves to run but calms down on the walk.  He is super friendly.  He likes his back scratched,  he is alert and smart.  He came with his collar embedded I believe,  either that or the chain embedded, his neck was completely raw and open.  picture posted 8/31/19.  HW+; 37lbs; 4/13; no age






This sweet medium sized girl is Piper, described by the staff as friendly and affectionate.  Everyone remarked how cooperative she was during her intake procedure, such a good girl! Piper met her new friend Mason out in the exercise pen and tails were wagging the entire time.  Mutual sniffing was done and then it was time to play off leash! Piper and Mason enjoyed a nice playful romp together and had lots of fun. Piper also met Venus, a female dog, and was also off leash with her with no incident.  This girl is a friend to one and all! Piper has a pretty mostly white coat with just a few splashes of brown and is just lovely. She's affectionate and loves to have fun with other dogs.  Piper is proof that love isn't always small and fluffy, so give her a look and see if she just might be the dog for you!  Note: Piper was dropped off as stray by animal control. She is very affectionate and friendly and cooperated very well during intake.  Easy leash walker and loves being pet. HW+; 38lbs; 1-2 yrs old; bull mix; 2/12/18.  Adopted in May 2018.

Raymond- FunInTheArena 





Folks are fast to praise a dog by saying, "Good dog!"  With Raymond,  at a first "hello," you will be saying, "Great dog!"  Guaranteed.    Raymond is so much fun to spend time with that it's almost criminal.   This sleek jacketed fellow with the large cupped ears can happily self entertain himself by toting a ball around in his mouth, rolling around like a goof ball on his back with his legs straight up in the air,  or simply running around and checking out all the new sights and smells.   Raymond is a really well balanced dog.  He is fantastic in meeting other dogs (polite and welcoming, never pushy) and even when he was provoked by another dog,  still he was non-reactive and looking to move on and continue his fun outing in our front field.   Raymond is affectionate, happy and playful would love an opportunity to care for a family with kids and provide companionship to other dogs in his new home.  Sound like a great dog to you?   Please, come and meet him today!   Note: Hw pos; 10/30; male; 58lbs; lab mix; 5 yrs old; ac stray

Rico Pup


12 wks old; 11/9; male; 21lbs; limping on back left leg; stray hound mix






Living the life of Riley??  Well, on line if you look it means living the easy life, an existence marked by luxury and a carefree attitude.   Riley may not be living a luxurious existence right now but she certainly has a carefree attitude and as healthy as she is,  has had a relatively easy life.  She would love to continue down this path and as terrific as she is in getting along with other dogs and humans, one would think her new home is just a tail wag away!  Riley is nicely sharing her shelter kennel with a shy male dog and was very respectful in giving space and picking up on q's in meeting a shy female on our walk today.  A very well balanced girl,  Riley nicely sits when asked and if she is feeling a little more froggy, will run and chase after balls.   A skilled leash walker,  Riley seeks and gives affection and would be very much in her element caring for kids and hanging out with other dogs in her new home.   Riley hopes to continue to lead a charmed life.  Think you can give this broad a new home and the life of Riley that she so deserves?  Note: Arrived 10/11/19; Bull mix; 2 years; 50lbs; HW neg. AC stray; female.  confident, calm roommate for Bertie; walks well on leash; medium energy level






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.

Ronald- LoveOnMe!





Hounds are just the best and Ronald fits perfectly into this mold.  If you are looking for a more mature, mellow, accepting doggy friend than Ronald would love to meet you.  Never meeting a stranger, Ranger is softly affectionate and happy to go and do and spend time equally with humans and other dogs.  An excellent, skilled leash walker, Ronald (at least more recently) has not had a very pampered life (he has balding on his haunches often attributed to sitting on cement for long periods of time, a gimpy back leg, some hair loss and he's rather thin!).   He's a fixer upper of sorts but certainly worth every dime and minute devoted to helping him regain a perfect bill of health.  Amazingly,  he is heartworm negative so for now,  his heart is healthy.  Now,  with YOUR HELP,  we can get his heart HAPPY by sending him on to his new home!  A home with kids and other dogs would perfectly suit this gentle natured, most capable pet! Ask for Ronald today, won't you? Note: Hw neg;  mass on leg- may need dental; 40lbs (thin); 9-11 yrs old; hound mix; 10/28; stray.  In LoveOnMe Video, the narrator mentions he's 2 yrs old.   Vet has him at 9-11yrs old. 


 





Snuggly.  Huggy.  Ready to go and do!  My book is wide open and I am hoping you would like to join me to round out the bulk of the chapters in my life!  If you can believe it,  my ears got even taller and more erect when the photo lady came by to take me out to make new doggy and human friends.    She initially let me loose to run free in one of the exercise pens and I made her laugh as I chased after tennis balls (No chance, I would bring them back but oh, well!), self entertained and then made myself comfortable in another volunteer's lap.  I had such fun.  In the adjoining pen was a cutie pie of a teen pup who curiously eyed me and I her!  With some of my zoomie energy in check, it was time to walk with Gina Pup.  With such cuteness in front of me, I was eager to meet her and tried not to spook her with my confidence, larger size and general interest in saying "Hi."  With rears sniffed and noses touched,  we soon set off for a fun walk in the front field.    Folks might say I am bit of a busy bee (I love to go and do) but I am also such a huge, snuggly huggy kind of guy.  If you love doggy attention and wish to have a 4 legged companion tapping you on your shoulder to head out for a walk or stroll into town,  I could be the perfect pet for you.  Please ask for me, Roofus today!  Won't you?  Note: Hw neg;  ac stray;  1 yr old; 48lbs; 10/11; bull mix. No cats for me please.

More about me Dec 6: This boy had been with a family for a while when they decided to surrender him. If I remember correctly he was with them for 3-4 months at least. He was so sad that he didn't get to stay with them forever. He was being a good boy at their house. They were an older couple, he arrived as a stray, and they had enough animals, grandkids, travel and hadn't planned to add another pet. It was a sad day when he left their home. It would be devastating to see him not find a family. I think they had him long enough that he knows his name is Roofus.

Sammy- ArenaTime




Sammy was brought in by a member of the community as a stray found on E seven Pines St. darlington
She is a sweet heart. Walks well on a leash and seems to do well with other dogs.  Brought in with Shelby 2061.   Hw-; 1 yr old; lab mix; 8/20

Sarge


He sits and lays down on command and loves his belly rubbed. A sweetheart.  Rottie mix; 5-6 years old; 98lbs; Hw pos; 11/26; found as a stray in Hville.






Sassy found herself at the shelter as an owner surrender when her owner was no longer able to care for her. Sassy is very sweet and affectionate. Sassy would be a great dog for an active family or someone looking for a hiking or jogging parter.  She's no couch potato and is ready to be by your side if you are a go and do type person. One of Sassy's favorite things to do is play fetch with a ball, so if you love to play, sassy would enjoy your company!  She is a pretty mostly white Bully blend girl who hopes that a forever home is in her near future. Sassy isn't sure what happened to the home she used to know, but she knows her friends at the shelter will do all they can to get her a new family as soon as possible. Bully lovers, please check Sassy out and see if she might be the dog you have been looking for!  Note: Sassy was turned into animal control as an owner surrender. Her owner was no longer able to care for her. She is very sweet and affectionate.  HW+; 43lbs; 3-4 yrs old; bull mix; 12/5

Sheba


Sheba is a tender-hearted, affectionate girl. She enjoys some playtime with other dogs in the yard, but her favorite thing to do is snuggle on the couch with her person. She is tender-hearted and submissive. She gets along great with other male and female dogs.

Spunk was brought in as a stray by AC. Found on West Broad Street Darlington. Walks well on a leash.  HW+; 35lbs; 1 yr old; bull mix; 8/6





Update Sept 10: Let's get this party started!  My name is Spunk and I will be your director of entertainment today!  It's pretty easy to see at first glance that my idea of a really cool party is to have some grassy areas to run and play around in!  Adding kids that will enjoy some games of tag and playing with squeaky toys will surely make for an enhanced party experience.  I love meeting other dogs...some might say I'm a little forward in my approach... but I am working on that as I really just want to say "hi."  I'm a smaller framed fellow with tall bat-like ears and a lovely deep red coat to catch your eye.  Very smart, alert and attentive to my person,  I'm an affectionate, loving and very playful doggy who has just the right amount of puppy play left in my system to keep everyone in stitches and entertained!   Stop by today and see how wonderful it is to have me on my back and YOU rubbing my belly while I grin a huge grin! 




 This beautiful all white guy is Tank, one of the happiest dogs you could hope to meet! Tank walks nicely on the leash and just loves being loved by people. His video of him playing ball show the happiest a dog could be, romping with a ball in the exercise pen and stopping to get a belly rub with a huge smile on his face. Tank has a wonderful demeanor to match his handsome good looks, he has met a variety of other dogs from big to small, male to female, and every introduction went off without a hitch. Tank came to the shelter as an owner surrender because there was a female dog in his previous home who was nursing a litter of puppies and she didn't care to have Tank around. Even though Tank lost his home he has still hung on to his loving disposition and just adores being petted and loved. Tank is a dog who has nothing but love to give and will take all the loving and petting you have to offer.  Note: Tank was brought in as an owner surrender due to conflict with female dog in the home who was nursing.  Tank walks well on a leash and loves being loved.  HW+; 53lbs; 2 yrs old; bull mix; 4/8. tested very well with Midas and Sarah.  Med Note: We believe Tank is deaf.   He acts just like any "normal" dog so it's taken a while to  realize he has hearing issues.




Covered with wounds/leisions.  Original intake info: Tessa was brought in as a stray found on pine dale dr., Darlington. She is a very sweet loving girl. Walks well on a leash. Hw-; 1 yr old; hound mix; 7/15- reclaimed but picked up as a stray on 11/7

Tiffany Teen Pup- FriendPenelope

Tinkerbell Chi


HW+; 4 yrs old; 17lbs; female; stray; 12/6

Titan Teen Pup


Update Dec 2: Titan has been scared for a long time and finally came out of his shell today. He didn’t fight me with the leash as bad, walked well and even played in a mud puddle(like a typical lab). Hopefully he will continue to become more comfortable and confident.  Lab mix. 10-12months. 42lbs. Hw neg. Arrived with Tiffany 2743. They are siblings from a previous litter that Bubbles 2700 had. 11/12.  Tail is about 5in in length...it is not long and fluffy.

Update Dec 7: I'm growing into my name. Thank you for asking!  My name is Titan and I am one of the best natured, most gentle labs in the county.   I'm not strong in my personality or presence (as my name might imply) but I'm pretty proud of how far I have come along since my arrival.   I am now walking on a leash,  giving folks eye contact and showing interest in meeting other dogs vs having them always come over to meet me.  I am a good choice for a family with other well balanced dogs and older kids IF they can give me time and space to figure out my new pet role.   With no mean bones in my body,  I am very gentle natured, mild mannered, patient and polite.  Folks say I look like a full blooded lab (whatever that means!) but my energy (as I am told) is not typical of most labs.  It's very low key and mellow!  My playful side is just now starting to emerge and I would love for you to come and by and see it first hand!

Tony


HW neg;  10/12;  Found with his face very cut up.  He is now 100% healed and doing great.  Happy, friendly fellow.  2 yrs old; bull mix; 61lbs 

Topanga- Teen Pup

Stray in Oates Community.  Very skinny, appeared older, had multiple litters, matted, hairloss, leathery skin, very itchy, odor, bit of green mucus in corner of each eye, 2 sneezes heard, whimpered when being handled from the rear (this is also area where most hair missing). Very sweet and friendly. Was very hungry and thirsty.  10/22;  61lbs;  8+ yrs old; HW-.  Extra note:  She seems super friendly, gave my face lots of kisses, and doesn't mind caged cats.  I have not had her out with another dog.  She walks well on a leash, it is obvious she has done that before.  About 40lbs underweight. 

Trinity 


Happy and fun loving girl.  stray; 54lbs; hw-; 1-2 yrs old; bull mix

Trudy was brought in as a stray by animal control on Parkview dr in Hartsville. She has been seen by a vet. She has an old hernia and nerve damage. Despite her condition, she is a happy girl with a smile on her face.  HW negative; 25lbs; 7+ yrs old; 7/12; terrier mix   

Foster update Sept 13: She uses her brace a few hours a day. She really does better without it. Not sure about cats. We dont have any. She still needs her hernia removed and to be spayed. She is housebroken. She is super sweet. She loves to run outside but still a couch potato.






Let's Play!!  Sweet boy Tyson has one thing on his mind.  Playing and having a great time!   This compact, bouncy boy finds fun and games no matter where he is.  Never meeting a stranger, his book is wide open and he's looking for a companion to turn that next page to see what the next grand adventure might be.   Tyson loves to run and explore and equally loves being the center of attention.   Unbeknowst to his photo team,  a back exercise door had been left open and Tyson strolled right on out.    We quickly spotted him happily jogging along looking at us still inside his pen!  A simple call to Tyson and he was back in the exercise area and back in the thick of things.  That's how much he loves being with others!  Tyson is all wags and swiveling hips as he eagerly meets other dogs hoping they too might be like minded and wish to get in on the ground floor of his happy outlook on life.  Friendly and affectionate,  Tyson has a lot of love to give and share.  He's a smart, active fellow who would likely be a top student in a dog obedience class where he can learn to channel his puppy energy into pet perfection.   Ask for Tyson today! Note: Tyson was brought in by a member of the community as a stray. Found on Reservoir St., Darlington .  Tyson is very sweet loving and playful. Walks well on a leash.  HW-; 29lbs; 7 mos old; 9/7; lab mix

Valerie


Sweet girl. Shes shy but warmed up during intake.  stray; hw-; 40lbs; 1 yr old; lab mix

Whitney



Curb Appeal Plus!   Poofy jacketed Whitney is just as appealing on the inside as the outside.   This lower riding little lady has the appearance of a mini golden mix in person and when she gives you her first smile, you can't help but smile back.  Whitney is a little timid/shy but is working on her pulling on her brave boots.  She will be the first to tell you she was not very excited about leaving her kennel as the noise was deafening and the energy flying through the air just overwhelming.  Once away from the chaos and in our quiet front field however,  Whitney's beautiful smile emerged as she relaxed and surveyed the pretty open space.  Whitney is doing a wonderful job in sharing her space with a large male dog and was perfectly polite and respectful in meeting another female on our walk.   A more active home with kids racing through rooms would not appeal much to Whitney as a slower, more quiet pace/energy better suits her style.   Whitney will softly come on over to meet you and hang near you once she has had a chance to check you out.  Got to respect a girl for carefully sizing up her new friends!   Tipping the scales at about 40lbs,  Whitney is an easy to manage lady who would make a doting and adoring pet.  Don't miss out on this beautiful lady! Note: lab/shep mix; 5 years old; 39lbs;  O/s; HW-;  11/18


Whitney was brought in by a member of the community as a stray. Found on Abbott rd. Darlington.  Whitney is a very sweet mellow girl. She has a large mass on her lower abdomen that was seen by the vet yesterday. Recommended to have mass removed through surgery.   HW+; 48lbs;  5+ yrs old; hound mix; 5/7

Wyatt- Oh, so handsome in my new tie! VideoWithZoey


July 2017 Pictures- So cool in my shades!




Chasing dragon flies in a field on a warm sunny day, Wyatt wouldn't have it any other way.  Sweet as can be, and a gentleman to his furry roommates.  He's developed a small crush on his roommate Cleopatra.  They romped and rolled in the oasis today, taking advantage of the bright sunshine. Wyatt adores children, and loves going out to adoption events to meet new people. Wyatt gets along well with everyone he meets. 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.


Xena


Sweet girl is in heat, seems she’s had pups in the past.  O/s.  Could no longer feed; HW+; 2-3 yrs old; 52lbs; lab mix; 11/8. OK with other dogs and kids.









Starved for attention and yes, food!  The best is yet to come and YOU can be a part of my new exciting life!  I really, really surprised my new volunteer friends when after meekly exiting my kennel and then let loose in one of the exercise pens,  a totally different pet emerged!  I ran uninhibited,  tossed rope toys way up into the air and even brought them back to my new human friends.   I smiled and wagged my tail.  That was just the beginning of my grand time as I was soon wiggling on my back and getting belly rubs.  Oh, the decadence of my outing!!  A very friendly, affectionate fellow, visibly you can see I have been starved for food but also emotionally I have been denied and am working hard at filling the void of being ignored and made to feel like the real pet that I was destined to be.   I am still  getting back on my feet and will look forward to having even more enriching moments (and perhaps meet and greets with other dogs!) as I search for my new home.  Perhaps I am the man you have been searching for?? If so,  kindly look me up and prepare to be impressed! Note: Lab mix; 2 years; 41lbs (thin). Hw test will be postponed due to him being anemic.  Came in with Zoey.  O/S.  No longer able to care for him.; 10/22. No cats for me please.







Cute little red-headed girl!   Zoey is a pleasant, mild mannered lady who more recently has not been very well cared for.  Arriving super thin,  we are working hard on filling her out and helping her with her rather brittle coat of hair.  It's nothing that a little TLC and good food won't clear up!  We had the best time with Zoey today.  In entering her kennel,  she will look at you like,  "You wish to spend time with me?  Me?? Really?"   My hunch is that she has not had a lot of close, quality, steady human contact so she's more drawn to hang close to other dogs right now vs humans.  She did however do a nice job in warming up to us all and will sort of come up to up when you call her as she runs loose in one of our large exercise areas.   Again, I feel she's not used to a human wanting to be near her but she's willing to shyly come on over to say "hi" and then she is off to explore and have fun!  She's lovely on a leash and wonderful at meeting other dogs.   Gentle natured and ready to go and do,  I can see her totally blossoming in her new home with little or effort.  She really wants to be someone's good friend and a home with another dog in it to help guide her, would surely set her down a path to pet excellence.  Note: Came in w zeke.  O/S.  No longer able to care for her.  4-5 yrs old; 39lbs;  HW +; 10/22; lab mix
