JOEY

 

SEX: Male

AGE: 2

RESCUE: Southern Animal Volunteer Effort

BREED: Lab Mix 

WEIGHT: 60 lbs.

KIDS: Over 12

DOGS: Yes

CATS: Not Tested

 

ABOUT ME:  I was the "longest resident" at the shelter I was from. Months and months of being in a shelter with new dogs being thrown in my run. I was able to get along with everyone. We would have "clear the shelter weekends". All my friends would leave, and yet I would stay each and every time because no one would pick me. I think the reason is I am a little shy. I was caught in a trap, and brought into the shelter on a catch pole. The ladies at the shelter taught me how to walk on a leash, and I was on my way to learning to be a pet. When the shelter filled up, my name ended up on the dreaded LIST. You know the one. Being a shelter favorite, some of my friends reached out to SAVE to help me. They were so excited to help me! I am still working on being less shy. I also love being around other dogs. So much so that I am currently staying at a doggie daycare. I know that most people will want all my friends instead of me, but if you are that special person that is looking for someone to grow with, I am your dude!

LOUIE  **SUNDAY ONLY**

 

SEX: Male

AGE: 10

RESCUE: Halfway Home Rescue

BREED: Border Collie Mix?

WEIGHT: 40 lbs.

KIDS: Over 5

DOGS: Yes

CATS: Yes

 

ABOUT ME:  Louie came to our shelter from Greenville County Animal Control in South Carolina. He is a sweet old boy looking for a retirement home. Louie gets along wonderfully with cats and dogs.

LUCY

 

SEX: Female

AGE: 11 months

RESCUE: Brindle Buddies & Friends

BREED: Black Mouth Cur/Hound Mix

WEIGHT: 50 lbs.

KIDS: Yes

DOGS: No (unless sibling)

CATS: Not Tested

 

ABOUT ME:  Ricky and Lucy were adopted as 8 week old puppies but have since been returned to the rescue. They were living with other small dogs and their prey drive is unfortunately too active for that living situation.

 

We can tell they have not been socialized outside of their home and they tend to get scared easily. It took a couple of days to come around but now they are acting like normal 11 month old pups. They are very bonded and we would love to keep them together if at all possible.

MOMMA

 

SEX: Female

AGE: 3

RESCUE: Brindle Buddies & Friends

BREED: Black Mouth Cur Mix

WEIGHT: 45 lbs.

KIDS: Over 12

DOGS: Yes

CATS: Yes

 

ABOUT ME:  Momma has been with our rescue since the beginning of November. She came to us with puppies who all have found homes. Momma is shy, but once she warms up she is very sweet. We believe Momma was abused and not shown loved before she came to us. She would just lay in the corner and shake when people got near. Over the last couple of months she has came a long way. She nows jumps with excitement when her foster mom comes home, follows her everywhere and will now even walk on leash. She is living with other dogs and we believe she would do best living with a friend who can continue to show her the world isn’t always a scary a place. Momma has also been around cats and does just fine. Little kids do scare her so a family with older kids or no kids is going to be a better fit. Her ideal family is an older couple who is looking for a laid back Companion for their other dog. A family who will not judge her when they first meet her. A family who will allow her to come out of shell and let her show them her real personality before they judge her. Momma is crate trained and house broken, and desperately wants to meet you!

AGE: 5

RESCUE: Brindle Buddies & Friends

BREED: Terrier Mix

WEIGHT: 23 lbs.

KIDS: Yes

CATS: No

 

ABOUT ME:  Sam came from Kentucky when his family could no longer care for him. You will not meet a more perfect dog than him! He loves everyone he meets including kids.

Anyone who adopts this sweet boy is going to be a lucky family.

 

HEALTH ISSUES:  Sam is known to have ear infections (which is currently under control) and allergies. Sam is doing well on Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach food, and we recommend he be kept on that.

SCOOTER  **SUNDAY ONLY**

 

SEX: Male

AGE: 4

RESCUE: Halfway Home Rescue

BREED: Border Collie/Herding Mix

WEIGHT: 50 lbs.

KIDS: No

DOGS: Yes

CATS: No

 

ABOUT ME:  Scooter was picked up by animal control in a rough area of Macon, Georgia where children were throwing rocks at him. He is incredibly smart, a quick learner, and very loyal to those he trusts. Because of his abusive past, Scooter needs an adult home. Scooter would be a fantastic running and/or hiking partner. He plays well with other dogs at our shelter and could learn a lot from a well balanced canine companion. Scooter has had professional training. He LOVES having a job! Scooter is a true mixed breed. We're guessing he is a mix of a couple working/herding breeds. Scooter needs an adult home with a large dog experienced owner willing to continue training.

ABOUT ME:  This beautiful, fluffy girl came in from GA with her mother (Momma Bear) and her brother who has already been adopted.

Like all puppies, Scout will need lots of time, love, and patience.

SEX: Female

AGE: 1

RESCUE: Halfway Home Rescue

BREED: Belgian Malinois Mix

WEIGHT: 50 lbs.

KIDS: Yes

DOGS: No

CATS: No

 

ABOUT ME:  Sierra came to our shelter from a local pound. When she first arrived at our rescue, she was skin and bones- weighing in at just over 40 lbs. Sierra is very sweet girl looking for a home that knows and appreciates the uniqueness and working dog nature of the Malinois breed. She is incredibly smart and very strong. Sierra is very friendly with humans but needs a home that will continue to work on her training. Sierra LOVES to have a job! She MUST be the only pet in her home and MUST be adopted to a home familiar with Malinois (or Shepherd) or a similar breed.

 

HEALTH ISSUES: After many weeks of food trials and many visits to the vet, we learned that Sierra is allergic to chicken. She is now eating a Salmon based dog food and is gaining weight at an appropriate rate. We are confident that in a few months time, she will reach her proper weight of 70 lbs.

RESCUE: Brindle Buddies & Friends

BREED: American Staffordshire Terrier

WEIGHT: 60 lbs.

KIDS: Yes

DOGS: Possible (depends on dog)

CATS: No

 

ABOUT ME:  Virginia came to the shelter right before Christmas. She was underweight, overbred and basically hairless. Her eyes told you she didn’t have the best life, but that didn’t stop her from giving kisses and tail wags. Virginia is currently living with other dogs and loves to play, but she doesn’t like sharing toys and food. She has gotten better, but would need to meet any other dog before adoption. She is housebroken and crate trained and absolutely loves attention.

 

HEALTH ISSUE: Virginia has mange, which she's being treated for. The vet isn’t sure if all her fur will grow back, but every week she looks better and better. A couple months supply of meds will be sent along with Virginia.
