Pico- Senior with limited sight

She is emaciated and has limited sight but sweet as can b. Loves loves loves to b held and carried around. She goes potty outside but if she isn't let out she will potty inside. She's quiet in her crate bc she doesn't feel well so I don't know how she will do in a crate in the future. She gets along with all my dogs big and small. Doesn't pay much attention to my foster kitten. She is a great dog. She rode in my lap our whole car trip. Dr. D had a hard time doing the exam on her because she just wants to be held. The only peep she made is when we tried to draw blood. It was a very big and scary day. I'm sure she will do better next time. She does have major dental issues. 7/13; female; 5lbs; HW-; 8 yrs old

Update Aug 13: She's a hoot. Acts like a teenager. She finds her way anywhere she wants to go. On the couch, up the steps to come inside and even on the back of the couch. Crate and potty trained. She's gained weight and her fur has grown back. She's ready! No meds.

Update Sept 29: Pico is a vibrant senior. She has gained weight and all her fur has grown back. She has no idea she is visually impaired. She finds her way anywhere she wants to go. Her favorite toy is a bottle cap. She can find one anywhere anytime. She steals mine as soon as I take it off my drink. The other day I found her stash of bottle caps when I moved the couch to clean. There were about 12 in a pile. Lol. She's loving and playful. At times she's so silly it's comical. Pico likes to cuddle but she is fine laying on the couch with u. She is potty and crate trained. Pico is ready for her forever home.

Med update on eyes Nov 1: Vet report states: "bilateral hypermature cataracts". She's not totally blind. She can c shadows. Her eyesight doesn't affect her. She goes to the door and scratches when she has to potty, goes out on her own and scratches on the door when she's ready to come back in. She walks up the doggie steps to get on the couch with me and will get up on the back of the couch for a nap all by herself. 

A long time ago in a land far away, snowflakes fluttered down from the sky, like falling stars on the shelter walls. And there was a young dog named Pluto, who sat alone and dreamt of having a wonderful Christmas day. His prayer included a warm bed, food to eat and a loving family to call his own. Pluto is a 4-5 year old, 40+ pounds, beautiful male dog. His eyes are full of hope and his heart is big. This boy has had a rough start to his life. He has been at the shelter since he was puppy when he arrived with his brother Goofy. Both brothers came from a neglect case, underweight and with mange. Goofy went to rescue but Pluto was not so lucky. When he was younger Pluto would do his ego, stiff-legged waltz and then locked legs when he met another male dog. Since his younger days, Pluto has worked with two trainers and has blossomed into a happy and playful dog.  He still requires slow intros and once he is introduced properly, watch the play begin! Pluto loves all humans and just wants to be loved. He would make a wonderful family pet. This year his wish again is to be home for the holidays.  

Please help Pluto have the Christmas miracle he has been patiently waiting for.  Initial Intake 5/2015;  Arrived very thin at 32lbs;   Note:  Pluto will let kids and puppies crawl all over him!

Update Dec 8: Pluto needs to have a person in charge.  If no person is in charge, he will try to be in charge, especially with males. I did originally think Pluto was a young dog based on his energy and playfulness however he is more middle age.  He still however has that puppy play personality. Pluto will try to be dominant with males.  If a human is there to direct him, he will back down.  If the human is not good at directing dogs, there may be a fight...depends on reaction of other dog...will that dog be dominated or not?  Pluto plays well with other females and loves puppies. He just does't need to be around male dogs. He loves people too.

Rambo- Sponsored for pull fees

Today was the day for Rambo to put on his big boy boots and step out of his kennel for a little time in the fresh air and sunshine.  It was a huge step for our scared boy who has been making slow but steady progress since arriving at the shelter in June.  Rambo is still very unsure of walking on lead and at times he has to be carried.  At ease around other dogs, Rambo has shared his kennel with several roommates during his time at the shelter.  The most animated we saw him today was when a small dog approached and his eyes lit up and he forgot to be scared for a few minutes.  Rambo needs a patient compassionate person who will continue to help him learn to trust humans.  Note: HW pos. Scared boy. male; 37 lbs; 6/13; 2-4 yrs old

Rita was brought in by animal control. She’s frightened but is still friendly.  HW+; 36lbs; 3-5 yrs old; bull mix; 11/4

River- Sponsored

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.

We evaluated Rocko last Saturday and used him as our tester dog with males and females. He is GREAT! Soft as a teddy bear. Sweet and cuddly like a live teddy bear. What a great dog!  Note: Rocko was brought in from animal control. He is very friendly and sweet.  HW-; male; 1-2 yrs old; 49lbs; hound mix

April picture, August picture

Hartsville a/c found her running around, took her to her owner and they said she was theirs and went to show proof of id but once they found out they would get a ticket for the leash law they said ac can have her. She is shy but friendly. 46lbs; 2-3 yrs old; hw-; 3/14/16; female

Update April 15: To see Sheba is heartbreaking.  This sweet girl had a family.....she had a home, then she got out of her fence.  When animal control confronted the owner and they were informed of the fine, they surrendered this sweet girl to us.  She doesn't understand why she is here.  I believe she is waiting for people that will never come.   A sweet and gentle soul.  This girl deserves a chance at a family that won't let her down.

Update May 14: Sheba lets me pet her but only comes to me when I have food.  She shows interest in playing with my dogs. I plan to put up additional fencing in my back yard to make a smaller play area for her so that I can let her out with a playmate and be able to get her back in to her kennel. 

Update August 29: Sheba's feelings were hurt when she learned that her family would not come reclaim her from the shelter. Now in foster care, she is happy and playful with other dogs and ready for a home where she can get all of the attention she deserves. Sheba is crate trained and walks well on leash. She gets along well with other dogs and would be fine with children. A typical bully, she is eager for time and attention from her human family and is eager to please.

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

July 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.
