Hi! I'm Jacob! I was saved from a local high kill shelter and now I'm looking for my true forever home! Yes, I'm a big, handsome boy! I'm approx. 7-9 years old and approx. 85 solid pounds(1/11). I'm extremely sweet, loving, friendly and playful! I'm well socialized and have never met a stranger. You'll see how wonderful, playful, gentle and sweet I am in my two videos! I'm quite the character with a big personality. The lady that took my pictures and video is on a wheelchair and I lathered her up with kisses and was very gentle and submissive with her. I wish I were small enough to be a lap baby! I'm great with kids. I need to be the only pet in the house. I love to get all of the attention. I'm highly intelligent and currently working with a trainer. I'm doing awesome with my training and have so much fun doing it. I've learned many commands. I'm house-trained and mind really well, inside and out. I really enjoy being petted and loved on. I'm a big cuddller. The more attention I get, the better. Now that I've learned what love is, I just can't get enough. I really like to have my ears and belly rubbed! I love to go for long walks and get a kick out of rolling around on the grass. I have a medium to mostly low energy level. I hope to get a forever family that will love me like the prince I am. I'm ready to learn new things and finally live the good life I so richly deserve! I'd love to be an exciting addition to your wonderful life! I'll provide the unconditional love and you can provide the much loved belly rubs!This pet has a short video available to watch on our YouTube channel, to give adopters a better idea of the pets personality and true size.

All pets come from NC/VA (our euthanasia rate is approx 85%) and must be quarantined (to ensure health) prior to leaving the state. We go ahead and post them in hopes of them having a home ready and waiting for them to go, once their quarantine period is over. We also adopt into Canada.

About Carolina Canine Rescue Burlington VT

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small  nonprofit  group.  We rely only on our adoption fees to survive. We have been rescuing, vetting, and rehabilitating dogs and puppies  since 2009.  We take  in dogs and puppies  from our county  kill shelter as well as abandoned and injured dogs and puppies, regardless  of  their age or any health issues.  We do not turn any away due to health issues. We have taken in dogs with hearworms, mange, physical handicaps, injuries, severe malnutrition, etc. You name it, we've probably seen it! We get these pooches back to good health then begin our search for just the right home for that pet! We also  assist  individuals  in rehoming  their  pets if needed. One advantage we have over other rescues is that two of our volunteers are in wheelchairs, so many of our pooches are already used to being around individuals with special needs!

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Any monetary donations are greatly appreciated and go toward vet bills and dog food!  Donations may be made by mail or paypal to   Our website also has a paypal donate button on the homepage. All donations  are tax deductible!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events at various pet stores during the warmer months.

Our Adoption Process...

We do require  an adoption  application  and an adoption  contract,  which can be  found  on our website  at   Adoption  fees vary. You must be at least 20 yrs. of age to apply.

All of our available  pets are rescued  from NC and VA where the county animal shelters euthanize up to 100% of the animals.  Many of the southern county shelters still euthanize with the gas chamber and by heart stick.
