Facts about Huck

  • Breed: English Sheepdog Mix
  • Color: Black - With Brown, Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Huck was hanging out in our field and the one next door with cows. He loves to watch the cows. He would not let me touch him initially but when I got on the golf cart and said "come on, let's go to the barn" he followed me all the way home. He did not try to herd the sheep or horses and did not bother the cats. When I sat down on a stool, he would let me touch him all over. I put a collar on him and a leash so I could lead him inside the kennel. Huck yelled and flopped around like a fish, obviously never had the collar leash experience. He flinches and sometimes yips most times I try to touch the collar. He likes a harness just fine. He walks like a pro with either one. He has been completely non agressive with all our many dogs, big or little males or female. Being not neutered yet he is partial to the girls. Huck is probably 6-9 months. He will need a patient handler who is committed to providing him training and socialization. One of the nicest dogs I have had the privilege of working with.

Huck has now been neutered. He is house broke, knows to go to his kennel for dinner, sits for treats, and is kind to his dog siblings - all 6 of them. He LOVES watching the cows next door. This boy must be part deer or kangaroo - he leaps along instead of running all fours. A happy delightful boy.

About That'll Do Again

About Our Rescue Group...

Our rescue was started to honor a foster dog, Casey, who came into my care with a Mrsa infection of his ear. His care was very expensive and dangerous to us as well. Sadly Casey has crossed Rainbow Bridge, but his gentle sweet soul touched us so much, we wanted to help other needy dogs who just need an opportunity. A common herding dog command is That'll Do and is meant to stop all motion and await redirection. Thus our rescue name - That'll Do Again . . . for a new life direction. We take joy in seeing our dogs new lives. Several are now FlyBall champs. We vend at dog events like Breed shows, Agility and Flyball events to share our mission, plus we have some awsome dog quilts, bags, and dog beds to sell that helps support the rescue. Sewers and Quilters. . . please join our efforts. We host workshops such as Animal Communication with Patty Summers who talks to our animals. Flyball and Agility workshops are in the works. Sometimes we just have a picnic so all the dogs can run and play in the field together while we humans watch with delight. We have volunteer trainers and behaviorist who help with training and education. We rescue dogs, but in the process they rescue us and bring together a great family of dog lovers. Why do we do it. . . for the pure joy of seeing the difference it makes in so many lives.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Visitors are welcome but must be by appointment since our fosters may work. Most weekends are good times. All our foster homes are in the Charlotte, NC area.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process begins with an application and followed by a visit to our farm to meet the dogs. If all goes well and a dog is chosen, a home visit will be done. The purpose of the home visit is to be sure the dog has met all family members including other pets, and it appears all are comfortable with each other. A two week trial adoption is started but the adoption is not complete until all parties agree that the dog and family are doing well together. The adoption fee is $275. All dogs are spay/neutered prior to adoption. If the dog is a pup, the spay/neuter will be delayed until the appropriate age, but proof of spay/neuter is required to prevent return of the animal to rescue.
