Bailey (4 yr old female)
Bailey is 4 years old. She is a very friendly dog. She loves attention from people and gets along very well with other dogs. She loves children too. Bailey is a runner. She needs to be kept in a fenced in area because she loves to chase cars. Bailey knows the commands "sit", "laydown" and "roll over". She will also respond to "shake". Bailey is a barker. She will let you know if someone is in the yard or has pulled in the driveway. Bailey also loves to ride in the car. She is a real sweetheart! Whoever gets her will fall in love with her.
Friends, let me introduce you to Cassidy! The story on this pup goes a little like this: she was an owner surrender to the animal shelter because she allegedly went thru a neighbor's cat door and proceeded to chew on their sofa (totally ignoring their cat). Now, Cassidy is a Big Girl, weighing in at a trim 54# and standing about 22" at her shoulder- I really can't see her squeezing thru a cat door, can you? At any rate, poor Cassidy was covered in a hundred ticks and STARVED for affection. Turned in without even a proper name, I named her Cassidy ("clever" in Gaelic).
Folks, if you are looking for a Big, Beautiful Goofball, then Cassidy is your girl! She loves to be involved with anything that you are doing, helping out with laundry, supervising dinner prep, playing tug with your socks, stealing kisses as you bend over to tie your shoes… This girl is F-U-N! Cassidy gets along well with other dogs, and seems to do well with dog savvy cats (although she might try to half-heartedly chase a running cat). She has been introduced to sheep, and doesn't require a herding home, but she DOES require a home that will help her stay busy and involved (and no more cat doors, LOL). Cassidy is being fostered in Athens, Georgia.
Fritz (Adoption Pending!!!!)
Meet Fitz, he is looking for his very special fur-ever home. He is a super loveable guy, about 4 years old. He loves to be with his people at all times. He would play fetch 24/7 if his humans could keep up! He knows basic obedience, is house broken, and loves to ride in the car. He would prefer a home without kids, and he prefers female dogs as playmates, he likes being the only boy. He is fine with small female dogs and cats.
Happy (Adoption Pending!!!!)
Happy is a very sweet laid back dog and loves people and is friendly with other dogs and cats. Happy loves the water and has the markings of a Border Collie and the traits of both a Lab and Border Collie. As you can see from the photos Happy is a beautiful dog and is one of easiest dogs we've taken care of and quickly becomes your best friend. He loves hugs, belly rubs and likes being your best buddy. He may be a little shy at first and that is just for the first few minutes and then he quickly warms up to you. Happy is a delight and easy to be with as he causes no trouble and just loves doing things with you and can just lounge around too. He'll likes to ride in the car if you want to take him somewhere with you he'll enjoy the ride and if you like to go a lake, river or if you have a pool Happy will be right at home! He loves toys and playing with you and especially likes chewing on a big doggy bone. When I've had friends over they always say the same thing, "what a nice friendly dog"! He has been neutered and is up to date on all shots, negative on heartworm and up to date on heartworm medicine.
Jasper (3-5 yr old, male)
Hi my name is Jasper, and I am a border collie mix. I am estimated to be between 3-5 years old, and weigh 48lbs. I am housetrained, crate-trained and walk really well on a leash. I was a little unsure of riding in a car at first, but now that I have taken several road trips (one to the beach), I ride like a champ. I was a big hit on the beach! I loved meeting everyone that approached me, and their furry friends-if they had any. I currently live with other dogs, and do quite well with them all. I am NOT a high energy dog (pretty much a cuddle bug/companion), but I will play ball and chase. I have been told that I would make an excellent therapy dog. I have NOT shown any signs of having noise issues (such as thunder, fireworks, etc). I do have a dry eye condition, which requires eye drops 2x's a day. I sit very patiently while they are being applied, so I can be told what a "good boy" I am. I have a "slight" vision impairment, but have 90% of my vision. My foster parents would prefer a fenced yard for me for this reason. I am not an escape artist, but for my safety. I am being fostered in Greenville. South Carolina.
Lola (Adoption Pending!!!!)
Lola is an approximately 10 year old purebred Border Collie. She is a special needs BC, because she is deaf and has back problems due to an old injury. She was turned to the shelter because her elderly owner died. Lola had skin problems and was arthritic due to an old injury to her back. They weren't sure she was going to make it, but with some TLC and good food that she could eat, she has made a miraculous recovery. Her hair has grown back and she has gained weight and looks and feels so much better.
Her disability doesn't stop Lola from getting around. She can go on walks and be a quiet inside companion. Lola needs a loving and understanding home where she can live out the rest of her life which should be a long time. She is heart worm negative and other than a little arthritis she is fine. She is deaf, but with a responsible owner who helps keep her safe, dogs adapt to being deaf very well and lead normal happy lives. She would require a fenced in yard for her own safety. She doesn't know hand signals, but she is easy to handle on the leash and in the house. Not sure how she is around cats because I don't have any.
Are you the one Lola is looking for to be her forever home? She needs a patient and loving home, preferably with only one other dog or none. She would love being Queen of the castle! Can you open your heart and home to a senior deaf girl? You won't regret it.
Roscoe (4 month old male)
Roscoe the Rascal we call him lovingly, as he has spunk and personality yet... he is a very easy going pup. We believe he is 4 months old or so. He has been with us since the week before Christmas. Roscoe loves to run and play, he is well behaved inside the house. He is crate trained and housebroken. He gets along well with other dogs and children. He has an independent streak, so will come to snuggle and kiss on his humans, and then will walk away to go play with a toy or chew on a bone. He is loving without being "needy". He loves his daily walks down the block- we go 2 or 3 times a day. On the days we can grab a 3-4 mile walk, he is even happier. He loves to prance, and chase the other dogs, but is respectful of the pack and the hierarchy. He likes to steal and hide and chew on socks if he can find them laying around the house, but he has not ruined any shoes...Roscoe is a protector and will bark and strangers and noises to alert us, but then will come to stand my our side for his own reassurance. He likes squirrels and birds, and will run to find and chase them. In our family, we call Roscoe the perfect puppy. Sweet, loving, affectionate, obedient, willing to please, a total lovebug, and likely a good dog for agility training. He is a sweetie pie... overall, he will grow into a wonderful dog.
Ryder is an approximately a 2 year old male. He is neuter, completely vetted and microchipped. He is heart worm negative. Pictures are hard to get of Ryder, because when he hears the camera he come right to it.
Ryder is a special need guy. You see, Ryder is completely blind. He will follow you though the house, and will venture out on his own. Ryder learns his environment quickly, and in a short time you wouldn't even know that he is blind. The longer he is with you the more he can get around on his own. He is fine to lay next to you and wait for a pet or two. Ryder has lots of love to give, and loves to be in your lap.
For more information please contact Ryder's Foster dad.
Yogi (Adoption Pending!!!!!!)
Yogi is a sweet and affectionate BC mix who'll make a great companion.
He loves belly rubs and will follow you around the house. He walks well on leash and loves car rides. Long car rides can upset his tummy. He's house trained and will go in a crate with encouragement. Yogi needs a little time to adjust to other dogs. It took several days to get use to his 2 female BC sisters. Now they get along very well. He has been treated for heartworms and he's now a healthy happy boy. Yogi is a vocal boy and will need to be in a house instead of an apartment. He'll let you know if anyone or anything is around the house. Yogi is very food motivated and he'll be easy to train. He loves to play tug but he hasn't shown much interest in fetch. Yogi gets along well with my 7 yr old grandson. Thunder and fireworks do not bother him.
