These are most of the dogs whose pictures I didn't have yesterday. Please take a moment to read their bios and see if you can add one to your list. Most of these dogs are not in nice southern foster homes. Many are living in boarding until a nice foster home opens up--That's where we come in. Please consider one of these dogs that don't have a foster getting pictures on the web all the time.
We wish this great dog could tell us his story! This Rottie is around eight years young! Rescued from a high kill shelter in Eastern North Carolina, Wilford Brimley was emaciated and so grateful to be in caring arms. Somewhere in his life time, he suffered some burns that will probably leave him with some permanent hair loss. He loves other dogs, but has not been cat tested. Wilford did enjoy the company of a young boy who went with us to take his photos! He is an amazing dog and will be a wonderful friend for life. He is ready to head up north to find his new home where he will no longer have to wonder about whether a next meal is coming or not!
Meet Dawf! This young adult Pit mix believes he is still a puppy. Although 37 lbs. and two years old, he is full of puppy love and sweetness. Rescued from a high kill shelter in Eastern North Carolina, he was placed into boarding for safe keeping. He seems to like other dogs and has not been cat tested. He has been around small children and adores them. His dream is to get out of boarding and finding a foster or adopter in PA. Let’s assure that his dream will come true!
Meet Emery! This two year old, 53 lb. Shepherd mix was rescued from a high kill shelter in Eastern North Carolina. Taken immediately for vet care and boarding, he remains in a boarding facility in NC awaiting his call for a trip to Pa. He appears to like other dogs, but has not been able to socialize freely yet and will need slow introductions to cats and children. Once given his opportunity to shine, we know he won't disappoint.
Meet this big puppy, a Boxer mix who is about six months old and 25-30 lbs. Gold Rush was rescued from a high kill shelter in Eastern North Carolina and is also a Parvo survivor. He is loving, extremely playful and loves other dogs. He is waiting patiently to go up north to find his new home.
Gooch : Meet this big puppy, a Hound mix who is about six months old and 25-30 lbs. Gooch was rescued from a high kill shelter in Eastern North Carolina and is also a Parvo survivor! He is loving, extremely playful and loves other dogs. He is waiting patiently to go up north to find his new home!
Meet Arc. The tiny 42 lb. Boxer mix was given as a Christmas gift. Now over a year later he has lived his entire life chained to an airplane crate outside in the weather. During a recent rainy week, the neighbor noticed his crate was broken and there was nowhere for him to go to get out of the standing water. Whether 100 degrees or 15 degrees, this sweet fellow lived in this crate with a three to four foot chain. When he was finally rescued, he was so excited to get into the car. He lived a terrible year with an uncaring person who mostly forgot to feed him, but Arc loves everyone. This grateful guy will fit beautifully in any loving home.
Meet Miss Onna! This Shepherd mix is about one to two years old and weighs 30-40 lbs. Rescued from a high kill shelter in Eastern North Carolina, she is friendly and likes to discuss current events as she is very intelligent! She appears good with other dogs but has not been cat or kid tested. She has her bags packed and is ready to head up north to find her happy ending!
Neo is a beautiful yellow lab, about six months old and 45 lbs. Found as a stray in Eastern North Carolina, he had an injured face that appeared to have been bitten. Taken from the high kill shelter to the vet, he unfortunately lost his eye. Healthy now, he is a wonderful lab with all the great qualities that make the breed so popular. He will make a great member of any family!
Introducing Peanut Wigglebutt! This chocolate colored Pit mix is between one and two years old. Found as a stray in Eastern North Carolina, she was taken to a high kill shelter where she was rescued and put into boarding to secure her safety. She has the cutest pointed ears that make her appear bat like. She is 30 lbs of muscle and is extremely light on her feet. She has amazing athletic abilities and can jump five feet high standing still! She is great with other dogs and a well-rounded pup!
Introducing Anchor! This two year old, 55 lb Black Lab appears to be full blooded. Even being a purely bred pup can't protect against sadness and cruelty. When Anchor's family moved from their home in Eastern North Carolina, they left him behind without food or clean water. Fortunately someone noticed and called animal control. At the high kill shelter, he was scared by all of the noise and chaos. Now rescued, he is learning to trust again and will make a great companion for anyone looking for a loyal and loving best friend!
