Urgent- Put to Sleep Pets

Zoey  -safe

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

Zeke  -safe

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 + Came in with Zoey.  O/S.  No longer able to care for him.; 10/22. No cats for me please.

Clyde -safe

Clyde tested great with female Piper and male Winston.  Clyde is older than what he was aged on intake. He was aged at 3 yrs. He is at least 7. Perfect home for Clyde is a bully lover who wants a middle aged, low energy old man to snuggle on the couch and be a companion. Clyde was sooo happy to enjoy the grass and get attention from some volunteers Saturday. He walked nicely on leash, met female Piper and male Winston politely, and mingled with them in the exercise area.  Note: Came in with Bonnie.  10/22; 44lbs; stray; 3 yrs old; bull mix; HW-

"Eeeeeeeeee!!!  Did you hear him grunt? Did you hear him snort?  Oh, I love him so!!"   Super appealing Clyde was fast on his short stocky little legs in endearing himself to a young volunteer early this morning.   Clyde nicely strolled over to his new friend and gave her a healthy spattering of soft nuzzles,  jiggly rear wiggles and plenty of tail wags.  And so it is with Mr Easy Going Clyde.   Clyde makes you smile and feel loved.   A skilled leash walker,  he showed a moderate amount of interest in some of the toys we activated for him, carried some of them triumphantly around in his mouth and he enjoyed exploring one of the enclosed pens. Always on the alert for a new human or doggy friend to meet,  he politely introduced himself to another shy dog and took the cue that she needed more space.  A happy go lucky kind of guy,  Clyde soaks up any and all attention he can garner but he's never too pushy or in your face in asking for more.   Just wanting some play time and love time, Clyde is your go to family dog who would quickly make himself comfortable on any poofy area in your home including laps! Ask for Clyde today!

"Oh, please include me in your plans."   Malcolm really does not ask for much but what he would most wish to have is your affection.  This sleek jacketed fellow with the trim, almost greyhound like body and blocky head to round out his unique look, is so gentle natured and mild mannered.   Turning my back for a nano-second,  I could not have been more happy than to see him nicely perched on a bale of hay skillfully posing with his new volunteer friends.  His new human friends would later tell me he almost seemed to ask them if it would be ok to jump up and hang close by them.  Such a joy to be around,  Malcolm is a happy, loving, pleasant sort who politely meets humans and 4 legged friends.   A well balanced, easy enough leash walker,  Malcolm comfortably explored one of our enclosed pens and when summoned,  cheerfully trotted on over to see what was going on.   Malcolm would grin and wag his tail if he knew he had kids to care for and or a new 4 legged friend with whom to share his new life.   The shelter setting has been hard on Malcolm (he's lost weight and looks tired) but he's not lost faith that someone will come for him and tell him he's the perfect companion pet.  Note: Sweet boy.  stray; HW+; 2-3 yrs old; lab mix; 11/5 

Orlando -safe

It's OK to put the spot light on me!  Howdy, my name is Orlando and I love being the center of attention.  The more folks who are around and the more action there is,  the more I will love it!  Folks tell me I am one of the most affectionate, happy, playful guys in the county. I love climbing up into laps, running and romping with other dogs and in general operate in a very happy bubble which I love to draw folks into!   I'm super animated when I see humans and dogs coming my way so be prepared to share me with them!  I'm such a social, active being that I can't help myself if I see others coming my way as they could be potential playmates or givers of belly rubs...you just never know.   A more active home where I can share my joy of life with other dogs will keep me at my best and kids too would really rock my world but sightly older and more sturdy ones as I might accidentally knock over smaller/younger ones.   Come ask for me, Orlando today.  I am the one with the endless smile, semi-shag coat and tail that never looses a beat.   Ps.  Orlando is a prolific digger!  No cats for Orlando.  Note: Sweet boy found on Rhodes community rd in Darlington.   HW+; 1-2 yrs old; 42lbs; lab mix; 11/6

Edie- Video Video 

Edie, female, 2 years old, 53 pounds, Bully blend, HW-  Let's get down and dirty!  Literally!   I got so many accolades while out walking with my new human friends and new bully friend Toby.  I think jaws dropped open when I sunk down in a semi-sticky mud puddle and proceeded to coat myself with a nice, thick layer of muck!  I was coated like a pig in a sty!  Next up,  folks kept oohing and aahing over my wonderful cupping ears and super expressive face.  As if that was not enough,  the humans and Toby enjoyed my playful, happy disposition.  I made them laugh.  While in my exercise pen,  I kept a good steady pace with Toby who was running up and back in his pen and the two of us had the grandest time egging on the other to see who could run the fastest!   Friendly and loving and not afraid to go down the path less traveled,  I'm your new partner for exploring and going and doing...in great style!  No cats for me please!

Riley -safe

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

Sassy- Sponsored for pull fees- Video Video Video

Sassy, female, 43 pounds, 3-4 years old, Bully blend, HW+  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!

Piper, female, 49 pounds, 1-2 years old, Bully blend, HW+ 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!
