Available ~ Lucy
Please meet Lucy! Lucy is a beautiful lab mix who is almost 2 years old. Lucy is just loved by everyone! She is a sweet girl who will do best in a mature home with children older than 12 years old. Lucy is very smart and would benefit from going to training classes.

Look at that happy face and bright eyes, she is a sweetie! Lucy absolutely adores humans, and aims to please. This little sweetie would do best as the only pet in the home. She does okay with other larger sized dogs, but prefers that they not invade her space!

Lucy is house-trained, LOVES to be petted, & is very generous with kisses. She is also on the small mini lab side, so if you want a smaller lab, think about adopting this sweetie.

Lucy is spayed and up-to-date on all her vaccines.

If you are interested in welcoming Lucy into your family, please apply to adopt at the link below:
Adoption Application

Available ~ Baylee
Baylee is a beautiful lab/shepherd/? mix who is about a year old and weighs 56 lbs. Bailey was rescued from a NC shelter on 7/25/14, and gave birth to 9 puppies not even 12 hours later on 7/26/14 (she actually had 12 puppies total, but 3 were stillborn.) Baylee is just a pup herself, but she was a good Mom to her pups, and as they got older, she was very playful with them. Her puppies are all either now adopted or awaiting adoption up in New England. Sadly Baylee is heartworm positive, so she stayed back in NC where she will receive treatment for her HW disease before heading North.

Since recovering from her pregnancy and spay, Baylee is quite agile and enjoys being active. She would be great for someone looking for a dog to train for agility or looking for a hiking partner. With her agility though comes the knowledge that she will jump right over shorter fences, so she will need a securely fenced yard (6 foot tall) to play in.

Baylee is very dog friendly and seems to be learning a lot from the other dogs in her foster home. She does seem to prefer dogs her own size, and would do best in a home with another friendly large sized dog. She is submissive to other dogs and is still learning how to play with them. Her foster Mom does feel that she is a little too interested/too active for the kitties though, so she is looking for a NO cats home.

Baylee is still somewhat timid, but gaining confidence every day; however younger children do make her nervous, so her ideal forever home will have no little ones. She does great with teenagers though and is in a foster home with two teens. No kids or kids 14+ would be ideal for her needs. Baylee is still very young and very puppyish, so an active person/family would be perfect…she needs her exercise!

Baylee is house-trained and crate-trained. She also enjoys car rides, but does become nervous when a big rig or loud motorcycle comes near the car.

Baylee absolutely loves to cuddle, and loves her chew toys. She seems to prefer women, but also loves her teenage human foster brother. Her foster Mom notes that she is terrified of men/boys wearing baseball caps or removing them…most likely from a bad past experience in her short life; but she is coming around with each and every passing day. She has made amazing strides with her confidence just in the time she has been with her foster family. She also had no training at all when she first arrived, she didn’t seem to know a single command, but she is also being taught these as well. She will also try to bolt out of doors early on, before she bonds with her human. Once she is bonded, she wants to be right by your side at all times.

Baylee is a sweet playful girl who can finally just enjoying being a dog and having fun. With a little more training, she will make someone a wonderful companion. She may have had a rough start during her first year of life, but she will know nothing but love from here on out.

Baylee is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccines, and will be completing her heartworm treatment before she heads to New England. Her arrival is still to be determined, but we estimate her arriving during the holidays.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Indy
Meet Indy! Indy is a loving bundle of high energy and would love to find an active family that he can keep up with and vice versa. Indy is estimated to be around 5 years young and he definitely has a ‘get up and go’ personality and loves to do what you are doing! Indy’s got a great ball and food drive. His foster family often take his tennis ball out in the yard and hides it in various places. Indy will literally search EVERYWHERE until he finds it. Now that is what we call staying focused! Indy does great in the car and is house/crate trained. Indy knows some basic commands so he needs a family who is willing to make the commitment to take him to puppy school so he can be the amazing dog that we know he can be. An added bonus to this incredible dog is that Indy is cat friendly and likes to be around female dogs. Indy has already been neutered and currently being treated for Heartworm. This healthy pup will be arriving in New England in late January 2015. If Indy sounds like the dog for you, please fill out an adoption application:

Adoption Application

Available ~ Tate
Meet Tate! Tate is giant goofball who has quickly become the shelter favorite! Tate is 1 years old and weighs around 90 lbs. Since Tate is a bit on the large side, he needs a family with the physical strength to keep up with him. Tate walks beautifully on a leash, loves to ride in the car and sits and stays on command even unleashed with other dogs in sight. Tate is not too fond of cats and has alpha tendencies when it comes to other males dogs. Tate does like the female pooches though! We think Tate will be best in a home that has no cats or other male dogs. Tate is currently being treated for Heartworm, is neutered, will have all age appropriate shots and is scheduled to arrive in New England mid to late February.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Leah
Leah is a beautiful 2-3 year old chocolate lab mix, who was not treated with the love and kindness she deserved until now. Leah has been in our rescue since June and she has made amazing strides since arriving to her current foster family. They have worked with her so hard, and she is now ready to find that very special family of her very own! As her foster Mom said, she has gone from a very scared timid girl who was too afraid to even walk into the house, to a transformed absolute angel, who now loves hanging out on the sofa, wants her head in your lap whenever you sit down, and is eager to learn.

Despite Leah’s initial anxiety about being inside a home verses just being left outdoors alone and kenneled, she is fabulous in the home now! She went from a girl who would not go inside and had to be leashed to the foster’s dog to actually get her to follow him inside, then to being terrified of even passing through doorways in the home…to a girl who now hangs out on the couch, has never had an accident in the home from day one, never bothers anything she shouldn’t be touching, doesn’t chew, doesn’t counter surf, doesn’t get into trash, she is a very polite house guest in her current foster home!

Leah most likely spent her young life in an outdoor kennel, which our vet believes she constantly gnawed on. Due to that, her front teeth are completely ground down to the gum line and one canine tooth is broken off. She also has already had cherry eye surgery, but it did not take, and will need to be done again. Lastly, she has already been treated for her heartworm disease. Due to her heartworm treatment, she can not undergo further surgery on her eye and teeth until after January. We will discuss this future surgery need further, with potential applicants.

Leah has transformed from a girl in pretty rough physical condition, to a complete beauty. Her fur is now shiny and glossy looking, and she has gained the weight she needed (she weighs just under 60 lbs now.)

Leah is 100% dog friendly and it will be a requirement that she is adopted to a family with another calm dog. She adores people now, but a doggie buddy gives her more confidence. She is great with dogs of all sizes and ages. Leah is also completely cat friendly and shows zero interest in the kitties in her foster home. Lastly Leah has also been tested around kids from the ages of 3 to 16. We recommend a more quiet laid back home for her, with older kids, but if there are younger visitors from time to time, she did exceptionally well with a very active 3 year old boy who she cuddled right up to.

Leah is still “jumpy,” startles easily, and probably always will be. If you drop something, she will jump. If there is a sudden loud noise she will also jump. Leah has been wearing a thundershirt, which in her case, has helped tremendously…she is far more relaxed and just a happy girl now, who is learning that she will only be treated with kindness from here on out, will always have her meals each day, and is very treat motivated…she will work that “sit” for as many treats as she can get! No matter where she is in the house if she hears someone say “sit” (to another dog in the home,) Leah will come running to show her sitting skills :-)

Leah is just a sweatheart! Yes she will need to be given the time to bond to her new family, but once bonded to you, she will be your best friend for life!

Leah is spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on all her vaccines, and has been heartworm treated. Her future medical needs will include dental surgery and another eye surgery for her cherry eye.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Onyx & Opal
Meet Opal and Onyx! We are very happy to have this precious bonded pair, Opal and Onyx who are very sweet dogs! They are both medium sized with sleek shiny black jackets and the most beautiful big chocolate eyes! Opal is very much a lady and is the calmer of the two. She has a royal look and moves very graciously. Her buddy, Onyx, just an athletic kind of guy that loves to run and play! They groom each other, sleep together and run tandem in the back yard! One goes nowhere without the other! . They adore their blankets! They sleep very close together as well. It’s very sweet to watch him clean her face and gently “talks” to her while he takes care of her “grooming needs.” Her face is always squeaky clean and she returns the favor! Clearly they do NOT like dirty faces! They are not so sure about kitties, but pay no attention to the other dogs. They crate and ride well together. Leash walking can use a little work. They are a wonderful sweet little pair! They have gained some much needed weight and we continue to strive for the perfect weight! They are up to date on all vaccines, flea control, and wormers. They are heartworm positive and will be receiving their treatment while residing with their Southern foster family. Opal and Onyx will be arriving in New England the beginning of March 2015. If you think you could provide a loving home for these 2 beautiful dogs, please fill out an adoption application to make that happen:

Adoption Application

Available ~ Haley
Meet Haley! Haley is two years old and weighs around 60lbs. We have been told that Haley is the most wonderful dog on the planet! She is chill and calm. Haley lays at her foster’s feet when she sits in a rocking chair. She acts as though they are old friends and they only just met yesterday! She is the kind of young lady that would fit in anywhere!! Perfection is the word we would use to describe her. When she walks by the other dogs, some are barking and howling at the “new girl”, she pays them no attention at all. She focuses on what she is doing and that is all she cares about. She does great with children and is very open to affection from men. She is very wiggly and when she’s excited, her tail meets her nose on both sides of her body to get some love! She rides like a dream. She is crate trained. Leash walking? She’s a pro!! She has refuses to potty on the outside of her kennel where most dogs will go in the night but she will hold it until she goes into the yard. Gorgeous eyes and pretty teeth, matches her beautiful personality to a tee! Haley will be up to date on all age appropriate shots, microchipped, spayed when she arrives in New England in the beginning of February. All she wants is a place to call home and people to call hers. We can already picture her in front of a fireplace stretched out on a nice rug. Whoever gets Haley will have a picture perfect companion!! Get those applications in!
