Farrah- sponsored for pull fees; treated for HW treatment- July Intake

Farrah is a very sweet girl. She walks well on a leash, and did well during her intake. bully mix; 7/21; 52lbs; 3 yrs old; HW+

Update August 31: Do redheads have more fun? Just ask our pretty lady Farrah! Farrah is a super fun, happy girl always on the hunt for a good time. Solid and strapping at 52lbs, she along with her best friends (1 male and 2 female dogs) were seized by the sheriff due to concerns for their overall care. Luckily for Farrah, her only health concern is testing positive for heartworms and is at a good, appropriate weight- which was not the case for all of her friends. We enjoyed Farrah's upbeat personality and her desire to catch that next slice of adventure just right around the corner! Farrah is a very sweet, snuggly, affectionate lady who is generous with her kisses, hip swivels and her playful antics. She did well in testing with other dogs, both male and female. She is confident and eager to meet other dogs and happily trots over to say "hi" with a full, wagging tail and grin on her face. Farrah keeps the good times rolling right along and would be nicely suited in a more active home where she can get out and stretch her legs. Don't forget to have a nice soft spot where she can rest her pretty head and sleek, toned body!

Foster Update Feb 10: ”Farrah is my foster. She has been with me since November. One of our angels saw that Farrah was getting passed over, so they paid for her heartworm treatment. Yep! Just to help our friend. Today Farrah is a happy, friendly girl who is eager to make her person or people happy. She is a quick study and already knows sit. 🙂 She is ready for a family of her own.”

More about me April 26: You'll not find a more loving doggy than our good friend FERGUS.   Fergus is a stunningly handsome fellow with his sleek grey coat- catch it in the right light and you will think that perhaps he's part Weimaraner!   Fergus will hug and hug and kiss on his human friends if given a chance.  He has a longer frame and longer legs, so his reach can be rather impressive as she softly stands on his rear legs to give you a much needed and deserved smooch on the cheek.   Fergus is not a dog to leave on the sidelines.  He loves to be involved and part of the action.  He's tested well with both male and female dogs and really wants to play with them.  He's still not been fixed so he's a bit humpy and needs some redirecting in this area.  LOL.   Fergus has been with us for some time but on a positive note, he has not given up hope that soon he will be headed home.   His positive attitude, broad grin and wiggly body is inspiring and encouraging to us ....perhaps it's a sign that he knows his person is literally just one click away.  Perhaps it's YOUR stroke on the keyboard that brings him on home.  Note: O/S- very thin; HW+; 44lbs; 1 yr old; 1/12; bully mix. New pic March 27!

Flower- pup

Flower was brought in as a stay Via AC. She is a little shy and could really benefit from a foster. I carried her from the trap to her kennel and from her kennel to the med room. She will not walk on a leash. She was very cold outside today, when i brought her inside she stayed in the same spot standing up for at least 20 minutes.. She didn’t move a muscle. She is very sweet and shy!! Flower is HW: Negative.   2/3; pointer mix; stray; 30lbs; HW-; 6 mos old


Flynn is sweet, knows the sit command and did excellent during intake. Walks wonderful on the leash!!! lab; found as a stray; 64lbs; 1.5yrs old; hw-; 2/28

More about me April 19: Handsome as handsome gets! Although FLYNN is one of many all black dogs in our kennel area, still it's easy to spot him due to his movie star good looks and how front and center he is in his space. Hoping you'll take him out to interview him for a new pet position, Flynn is a super friendly, happy guy. Flynn is very much all about his human as he nicely sits for a snack and or gently places his head in your lap in search of some mild TLC. Flynn had a great outing with us during photo time. His book was wide open. He seemed to prefer the company of female dogs and in no time, was off leash running and enjoying the sunny day with two different female dogs, one more active and one more chill. He is not very interested in wrestling/actively engaging with other dogs as he is simply sharing space with them and or running in tandem with them. Flynn is a playful, active doggy but he also really enjoys his quiet snuggle time with his humans. At one point when we were testing two other dogs together, he stretched out in his play space and had a very forlorn look on his face as if to say, "When will it be my turn?" Well Flynn, we are hoping soon it will be YOUR turn to head on home. Keep the faith!

May Event Outing: Sweet boy, knows the sit command. While on his day trip around town his handlers said he loves car rides, walking and checking out all the smells. Playful and a bit shy, he has good leash skills.

Gunner is a handsome 1 year old American Staffordshire terrier. He has the clown-like temperament that advocates of this breed love! He is extremely focused and eager to learn, and he will thrive under the training of an experienced handler who believes in the potential of this breed. Gunner has a soft mouth (takes toys and treats gently) so he can easily be trained with rewards. Gunner is very smart and has been learning routines and manners in his foster home. Gunner is crate trained and comes when called. He loves to romp and play with a male or female canine playmate, and he gets along with everyone at his foster home. Gunner will be happiest in a home with older children and canine friends who match his play style. His exuberance and stamina will make him a good hiking partner or a companion for outdoor activities with his forever family. hw-


Hampton is a very sweet old man!! He is very well mannered and happy as can be! Hampton is HW:Positive and did amazing for his intake!!! 5-6 yrs old; 61lbs; stray; 4/27; lab

Harley- Senior

Harley was brought in with all of the small R dogs. He is very sweet. He has a few kidney stones and bladder stones. He walks well on the leash. Came in with Ruth and Ruby. Broken teeth and tail. hw-; 12-14 yrs old; boxer mix; 52lbs; abandonned; 3/30


O/S- Had 2 weeks. Seems she's been passed from home to home. 1/8; 2-3 yrs old; 47lbs; lab mix; HW+; Heidi is very sweet and friendly. Her coat is very soft, thick, and wavy along her back.

More about me Feb 1: A blast of fun and games and plenty of hugs and kisses to go around!   Heidi is one of the sweetest, most outgoing girls you'll ever meet.   Sounds like she has been passed around from home to home due to no fault of her own but continues to give us her best foot forward and her best smiling face to all she meets.   Heidi is a beautiful girl with a shiny black coat and a curious swatch of wavy coat along her back area.   A stocky lab mix with perhaps some cattle dog in her,  she's a smart, very playful girl who loves to go and do, run and socialize.    In her book, everyone is her new best friend...albeit humans or dogs.    In her new home,  she would LOVE to have a constant playmate who matches her more robust play style and then having plenty of humans to snuggle with would surely tap into all of her best pet traits.  It's hard to EVER feel dumpy and or have a frowny face with this delightful lady by your side.  She's a smile maker who is terrific at her job.  Please check her out today!  

Update March 26: Heidi is one of the best at making friends and in getting a play session going. She loves to run and chase with her friends and makes the most of every moment out of her run. She will play hard with the big dogs as well, never complaining about anyone being too rough, she loves every minute. She is a sweet affectionate girl that is happy to make people and doggie friends wherever she goes. No cats for Heidi though.

Holly- Mom to 8 pups DOB: May 9!

Holly is an active girl! She loves attention & walks well on the leash. Holly is HW:Positive!! 3 yrs old; 50lbs; stray; 4/5; shep mix.

More about me April 19: HOLLY is a hit.  It's official.  Holly is such a good natured, pleasant, sweet, sweet girl.   Time permitting, we would of had an extra helping of this delightful girl during photo time if it was possible.  Holly was a real super star and quickly earned high marks in all categories.   To name a few:  Great with all dogs- male and female.   Great match for kids. Personality plus!  Excellent on a leash.  Skilled nuzzler and kisser.   Holly is very soft in her ways and has plenty of love and affection for all.   It was immediately apparent that she wanted to meet other dogs and was fast to earn off leash privileges of which she quickly took advantage.   Holly loves giving and receiving attention and affection and is a dog that is very approachable and loves to be swarmed by other dogs and humans alike.   Holly has a slightly submissive streak to her around other dogs so don't think she wishes to be the Queen Bee. She simply wants to fit in, have fun and run and play.    Holly is a true friend to all and what a joy it was to get to know her.  Perhaps, you too should give her a whirl!

Honey Bear

Honey Bear (Honey) was an owner surrender. She walks well on the leash and loves to play. O/S- moving; 72lbs; HW-; shep mix; 2 yrs old; 4/5; reportedly good with other dogs, kids and cats.

More about me April 26: We love your happy, welcoming, playful approach to life HONEY BEAR! Labby Mix Honey Bear was the perfect pooch for us on this warmer spring day. With her book wide open, Honey Bear is a girl on the go who thrives on new experiences, activities and folks and doggies to love on. Tipping the scales at over 70lbs, Honey Bear is a larger girl with plenty of love, hugs and kisses to go around. In her former life, her family reported that she was great with other dogs (Check- Fantastic with male and female dogs and dogs with very different personalities and energy levels), kids (Check- With her size and energy level more sturdy/older kids are a good choice for her) and cats ( Well, we could not find any so they too might be a good choice for her). Honey Bear is a terrific mixer and mingler with all and did a great job on and off leash meeting other dogs. She is a free spirit who is young at heart. She can be strong at times on the leash but once she runs/works off some of that extra umph, she'll be ready to give you attention and affection at a more measured pace. Honey Bear is THAT dog people will gravitate towards and comment, "What an incredible pet! Wish I had one just like her!" Well, now is YOUR time folks to get THAT incredible pet. Her name is Honey Bear.

Jenny- Teen Pup- safe

stray;lab; 22lbs; 6 mos old; 4/30


Jesse was found as a stray in Darlington. He was picked at the intersection of N Main St and Doneraile St. He has been in foster with Debbie Anderson and she has been trying to help him gain weight. Many of his teeth are broken. He has badly clipped ears and a lot of hair loss. Despite this, he is very affectionate and sweet. HW+; 45lbs; 2-3 yrs old; bull mix; 11/19/18

Foster update May 28, 2019: I picked him up from out of the road, dodging traffic, on Halloween night. He was in terrible shape when I found him. He had a collar on but was so emaciated, his skin was red and irritated and he was so dirty. We began working to put some weight back on him and work on his skin issues. He still has a little hair loss on his back, but he is doing much better. He is an older guy and you can tell that humans have not been kind to him in his life. Despite all that, he is the sweetest and most loving little man. I had his intake done at the shelter and brought him straight home with me into foster, so he's not spent any time at the shelter. Great dog so deserving of a home of his own!

Foster update October 23, 2021: I found Jesse running in the middle of the road on Halloween night in 2018. It was late as I was coming home and I was afraid he would get hit by a car. I stopped the car and went around the side to call him. While I was on one side, he ran around the other and jumped up in the front seat and began greeting my mom, my aunt and my cousin, who were riding with me. He was happy to see us, but I can't say that they were as happy to see him because he stunk to the high heavens! He was skin and bones, hardly any teeth and someone cut his ears back so severely that he barely has any. I took him home and started working on getting him healthy. His intake was done a few weeks later and he tested positive for heartworms. No one ever came looking for him, and to be honest with the condition I found him in, I don't know that I would have wanted to give him back. After he filled out some and he had some interest, I took him to our shelter veterinarian to see if they could age him and determine if he could handle having the heartworm treatment. They aged him at 6-8 years old and said that he was not a candidate for the treatment because his lungs were affected. So, I just kept him on a monthly preventative and treated his hair loss with baths. We had him out for evaluation and photos a few times and he always did well. Everybody at the shelter loved him and said how handsome he was. He absolutely loves to ride in my car and does well out of a crate. He sits in his seat politely and watches all the cars go by. He walks pretty well on a leash for me but even now pulls a little. I have introduced him to some of my dogs and he has done well. I've never had a problem with him. He doesn't really seek out the attention of other dogs. He is content to stay to himself and likes to roam and explore the yard. He enjoys spending time with us but he is not overly clingy and just happy to be near us. I do know that he would not do well with cats and has become a champion snake killer. He would be ok with other dogs around his size, probably not smaller dogs. We do not have children, so he has not been around to test how he would do with them.

I took him back recently (March 9, 2021) for an overall wellness exam and to see if anything had improved with getting him treated for the heartworms. Thankfully, he tested negative for heartworms this time. So that was a big answer to prayer! We started him on Apoquel to see if it would help the last little bald spot on his back. It looks like scarring from a lifetime of flea dermatitis and skin infection. Our vet said that he may just always have that little spot. We have been using TrezUltra to help his ears also. She said otherwise that he was in good health. He likes to run and still has a good bit of "spring" in his step for an older boy. Because of the severe cropping of his ears, his features are a bit intimidating, but I just love his toothless smile. He really is a good boy and doesn't give us any trouble. He can be a little stubborn at times about coming when we call him, but he will come running when he knows he is going to get his treat!

He is very happy w/ extra energy. He did well for his intake. O/S- hw+; 1-2 yrs old; 48lbs; 3/24; shep mix.

More about me April 19: Mr Entertainment. Mr Personality. Meet the magnificent JOEY! Joey is such a fun, vibrant fellow. True to his labby lineage, this guy is playful, silly, engaging and loves to have a good time. He found a kindred soul during photo time with our bully mix Thelma, who shared his zest for running, romping and wrestling. It was pure joy to see the two of them immediately hit it off. Joey likewise did a great job in meeting a shy, male dog and was respectful of that dog's desire to keep to himself and not really engage with him. Joey is a very appealing doggy with his sleek blonde coat, bright, welcoming face and steady wagging tail. In his kennel, he's front and center and eager to be your new best friend. Joey's personality/disposition is great for kids. Slightly older kids who are more sturdy will be a better match for Joey's general level of activity. You'll not find a more friendly dog than Joey so if super friendly/affectionate, kissy, huggy and lovable sounds like your kind of companion pet, Joey would love to hear from you.

Found as a stray with a crushed foot. Leg was amputated. 11/27; 1 yr old; HW+; shepard mix; 49lbs. Friendly, happy girl. TA

Feb 6 update: Juliette was in foster care and doing great with the foster's grandchildren. After becoming comfortable, Juliette wanted to become alpha with the foster's dogs. Juliette is beautiful, great with people--even strangers, and great with children. Juliette does NOT need to be an only dog IF she is in a home with a dog-savvy person who can keep dogs separate. All dogs do not need to be in the same pack just like all people do not need to be friends. Because Juliette is so beautiful and sweet, I have no doubt we can find her the right home. She DOES test well with dogs at first meeting; from what I can gather, it's when she becomes comfortable in a home that she desires to become alpha. This is not unusual for some dogs.

Katie is a VERY sweet girl. All tail wags and kisses despite having Sarcoptic mange. She’s very itchy and is miserable but she’s still full of life and has a beautiful life ahead of her. 55lbs; 1/5; stray; 4 yrs; HW+; bully. Update: Her fur has come back in!! Look at this beauty now!! March 26!!

Update March 26: what a delightful girl, and so appreciative of getting out of her kennel to run and meet people after weeks of waiting for her skin to clear. She walked very nicely out and pranced up to every person she could, to say hello. Two of our junior volunteers were smitten with her and all of the attention she gave to them. All three couldn’t stop smiling. She nicely met 3 or 4 dogs through the fence and then she got to go in and meet Brandon. He is still a little awkward in knowing how to start playing but she hopped around and play bowed with him. He just loved her and was so happy. Both had a good time!

Krystal- Senior

Krystal is one of the 6 dogs we received that were chained to trees and their owner died.. Krystal is incredibly sweet, owing and affectionate. She LOVESSSSS people, attention and is pretty mellow. Has really bad teeth ( Broken, rotten and worn down). She did well during her intake, we had no problems getting what we needed to get done. 10yrs old; bully mix; 3/3; 46lbs; HW+. Other tie out dogs: Krystal, Thelma, Robin, Louise and Junior- not sure who the 6th dog is. Person died.

March 28 Update: At your service!  Our black velvet beauty Krystal is just the nicest dog you're apt to meet.  This sweet, very humble, low key (and low riding!) older lady is never in a rush except to perhaps hang right by your side.  Krystal is a quiet, very polite doggy who does not ask for much but is generous in offering herself to you.   It's easy to be drawn to Krystal as she has this pouty face and all she wants to do is lean into you and be with you.  Having led a more challenging life, she has her eye on the ultimate prize of being someone's cherished pet.  Testing very well with other dogs (both male and female), she does want any trouble and will keep more to herself.   At an estimated age of 10 yrs and having had several litters of pups, surely it's time for this pretty lady to relax and find a final human lap (or 2 or more) to call her own.   If older and slower is better in your book,  Krystal might be the perfect one for you.

Update April 2: This was our first time having Krystal out and decided that with as calm as she was, a test could be performed. Krystal was tested with male and female dogs. She was happy to meet both people and dogs. She was very polite and enjoyed her time out.

Liquorice was brought in as a stray from Darlington. He is very polite and submissive. He enjoyed being out of his kennel and walked well on the leash. HW-; 2/8; 42lbs; lab mix; 1-2 yrs old;

Update March 28: Check out that adorable face and ears and welcoming smile!!  Our sweet, sweet treat of a dog LIQUORICE earned high marks in all the pet categories, across the board.  Great with male/female dogs.   Good choice for kids.  Mild mannered with a touch of playfulness. Never met a stranger!   Liquorice is one cute, smaller framed fellow.  With his sleek black coat, white chest blaze and athletic frame,  he is just stinkin' cute folks!   Tipping the scales at 42lbs,  Liquorice is a sturdy guy who loves to run and play, give and receive attention and affection.  He quickly and easily settled into an off leash play group and had the best time mixing and mingling.   Our youth volunteer was immediately drawn to this fun sized guy and was the recipient of many hugs and kisses from him.  The feeling was very mutual and he reciprocated in kind.  A happy, very friendly guy, Liquorice is a real prize pet waiting for YOU to come and bring him on home.  Note:  Cats might be too enticing for Liquorice.

Lori was brought to us after her and her friend Nova were dropped off in someone's yard. They were unable to keep them due to having several of their own dogs. 45lbs; hw-; 1/15; 3 yrs old; lab mix.

Update March 31: Lori is a beautiful dog . Once she trusts you, she lets loose and runs and plays and comes for belly rubs. She is sweet and gentle, but needs a patient hand to help her feel safe and secure. Another confident dog in the home will help her.

Update April 15: She is crate trained, A little skittish but not aggressive whatsoever. When you let her off the leash, she likes to pretend that she is free runs around rolls in the dirt with no care in the world. Lori is a wild flower 🌸 She likes being brushed too! She’s very loving and sweet but she is skittish and scared Especially if someone making sudden movements. She is beautiful! She is a different dog when you take her out to the exercise yard. She loves to run around and to get her belly rubbed. I believe once she gets in a home her shyness will go away.

boxer mix; 1-2 yrs old; hw-; 60lbs; 1/14; seized by sheriff along with Marsali and Bree. Abandonned.

Update Feb 4: Malcolm is so handsome! As Donna said, "He's a lot of dog," but he wins you over with his boxer-like behaviors. He dances and prances and grabs his own leash to walk himself. He rushes to the fence to greet and kiss every new dog and person he sees. Malcolm wanted to play with young Lab mixes Wallace and Whisper and Willow today, but his strength and size just made them quickly submit to him. Today we saw nothing that would make us doubt Malcolm's ability to get along with other dogs, but he will need a handler who can teach him basic manners and a canine playmate who can match his strength and size and exuberance. If you prefer big dogs and love boxers, you will love Malcolm. He does not look his best in videos because he pulls on leash.

Maverick -$350 Sponsorship for HW treatment

Maverick is a very sweet boy and a complete wiggle butt. He wouldn't stop wagging his tail for me to get a decent picture so I did the best I could. He was jumping up for pets but it wasn't hyper jumping. He would just put his paws on you and stand up for lovings!! hw+; 4 yrs old; 50lbs; stray; 1/4; lab mix

More about me Feb 1: Meet All-American labby boy Maverick! If you have not already heard, Maverick's middle name is "Fun!" Maverick is one happy, playful, interactive guy. Dressed for success in a very dark's almost a very dark brown vs black, he is sleek and athletic and boy does he love showing his humans some TLC. A master hugger and kisser and nicely asking for some belly rubs, Maverick, like any self respecting labby, is a bit of a busy body in search of a good time. Maverick could not wait to meet our 4th grade youth volunteer and without doubt, it was a mutual feeling of love at first sight. Maverick found a true soulmate in Shepard Mix, Harper as the two of them ran in circles playing together. When Maverick could stand it no longer, he showed the scarf with the ever bouncy, taunting pom poms around Harper's neck, that he would claim it for his own....and off came that scarf from around his friend, Harper's neck! Maverick is the real, playful deal who can't wait to broaden his circle of friends. A more active home with a doggy playmate or 2 would surely suit his silly, goofy pet style. Get in on the fun by bringing home Maverick today.

More about me April 26: MAVERICK has all the Perfect Pet boxes marked off.  Friendly, loving and engaging.  Check.  Good with other dogs.  Check.   Good with slightly older kids. Check.   Not too needy or clingy and can self entertain.  Check.  Maverick might ask what's going on as he's been sitting and waiting a long time to head on home and yet, he has such high pet marks.  Poor guy.  Once again during photo time,  he was a super star.  For his initial leash meetings with other dogs, Maverick is such a silly goofball that at times he would simply drop down, roll around on the grass and wiggle his legs in the air while the other doggy wondered what happened to their nicely paced walk.  LOL He did a great job off leash mixing and mingling with both male and female dogs and always took the time to check in with his new human friends.  An affectionate and very loving doggy,  Maverick enjoys leaning and leaning into you while you scratch his belly and back area.  Be on the lookout for some sneaky, darting kisses while in this position as well.   Maverick thrives if he's in the thick of things and would love to be part of the daily family routine/activity.  The more you can book his days to be a part of your life, the more you will wonder why he has not already gone home.  Please get a move on and check out Maverick today.  What a catch he is!

Rail Trail Event May 14 Update: likes car rides, hiking, sunshine, water, snuggling. Cuddle bug, kisser, sweet, really good with new people and environments, good leash skills.

Melody came to us from HCFD. She was a little nervous at first but she is very friendly and LOVES people. She is HW:Negative. 1 yr old; shep mix; stray; 1 yr; 4/12

More about me April 26: MELODY has it all.  Beauty, brains and personality to boot!!  Melody won the award during photo time for having the cutest smile and posing like a runway model time and time again.   Melody has not let her stunning looks- sleek black and tan coat,  darn cute perky ears and super expressive face- go to her head.  She's very down to earth and ready to go and do.  She seamlessly meets all without a care or thought in the world. She was pretty excited and eager to get on with her play date as we headed to the exercise area from the kennel yard, but soon that extra energy was worn off as we tossed lots of tennis balls, many of which she caught mid air!   Melody is equally as interested and focused on her humans as she is with other dogs.  She sits beautifully and nicely waits for your Q.  With other dogs,  she loves running and shoulder butting with them and just hanging out with them.  A well balanced, very pleasant dog, Melody would be terrific in sharing her new home with other dogs and slightly older/more sturdy kids.   Her sunny, welcoming disposition and happy, friendly face are a real magnet for all- humans and other dogs.  Come see for yourself.

Mikey was brought in as a stray. He is a very friendly sweet boy. His left hip was broken prior to arrival and has already healed to the point it can’t be fixed. He does limp on it but physically he is okay. He is HW positive. 2-3 yrs old; bully mix; 46lbs; 4/6

More about me May 3: Do nice guys always have to finish last?  Well, our super nice bully mix MIKEY surely hopes not.    Aged at just 2-3 years,  Mikey has a middle age "feel" to him perhaps attributable to an older, self healed break in his hip?  Surely that took a toll on his body but he's not letting that get him down and he's just the most pleasant guy in the county.   Soft and snuggly and really enjoying his time relaxing and chilling with his new human friends and perhaps by the side of a new favorite lady dog friend,  we found Mikey to be charming and personable.  Despite his injured hip,  Mikey still gets around pretty well.  We found that he tired more quickly after frolicking with his new pretty lady dog friends off leash so he would opt out of some of the action and politely relax in a shady spot.  Mikey really enjoys one on one attention from his new human friends (he likes draping in laps and getting nuzzly) and then also engaging with and interacting with female doggies.  He was a bit nervous/tense around male dogs- not sure if it's because he feels more vulnerable with his back hip injury.   Mikey earned high marks from his human and female doggy friends as he's so sweet, good natured and literally smiled non stop during his photo session.   Solid doggy work Mr Mikey!  We believe good guys don't finish last and we're working hard on your behalf to find your new home.    Note: No cats for Mikey.

Moose was brought in as a stray from Hartsville. He is a big boy! He jumps a lot but knows sit and paw!!! he did well during intake other than jumping on us for hugs. He is HW:Positive!!!! Stray; 4/29; boxer/lab mix; 87lbs; HW+; 2 yrs old


McCoy was brought in by AC. He is sweet. He knows the sit and paw commands. He is HW: Positive; 76lbs; 5 yrs old; stray; 1/11; bully mix

More about me Feb 1: If you are looking for the "Real McCoy," well look no further as we have found him! McCoy is with us!! During intake by our vet techs, they commented that McCoy is a "mini pony," and they were pretty spot on. There is nothing small, dainty or delicate about this larger framed lovebug. At 75lbs, McCoy is a big boy with a big stature and long body and gosh, he knows how to kiss and love on his people! Testing well with both male and female dogs, due to his size and extra energy, some dogs may wonder "what does that pony want with me," but his approach is all in good nature and he comes in peace! With little or no interest in toys, having a sturdy playmate and or a more busy/active home will help channel the extra love and tail wags this great guy has to offer. If bigger is better in your book, we encourage you to please check out McCoy. He's the real deal!

Rail Trail Event May 14 Update: likes car rides, hiking, playing ball, sunshine and snuggling. Extra energy but listens well. Lovable, playful and smart. runs well on a leash, great with all people especially males. Likes to drink water out of a glass being held.
