I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with dogs.
Faith was born August 2009 (so she will be 7 in August. She is about 65 pounds, spayed UTD on Rabies and yearly boosters. She is also HW NEG and current on Heartgard. She has her own crate and she will come with a crate, food, toys, heartgard, misc items. Faith is a playful little girl that loves attention. She is an indoor dog that loves to play outside when someone throws a ball or to lay in the sun. She is crate trained ,but if you let her, will snuggle up in the bed with you. She has a sweet personality, but still has that protectiveness of person and property. She is used to being in a fenced yard, but has some leash experience. She also likes a nice ride in the car. One small health issue is that if she goes 8 hours without eating, the acid builds up in her tummy nad will make her nauseous, which causes her to spit that acid up. Because of that, we have made sure that she has a small snack before she goes to bed so that she doesn't spit up before morning. One of the most important things about Faith. She does not get along with other dogs., She may play for a few minutes. But she has that typical Pit trait that she may not start a fight, but she is NOT going to back down from one. She just has not ever been properly socialized with other dogs. She is a very smart dog and if someone spends some time with her, she might could be worked with in getting along with other dogs. If you think you could give this sweet girl a home that would be perfect. Her owner is getting married and can't keep her anymore and she wants Faith to have a good home and a good life. We are accepting applications to screen to ensure she goes to a wonderful but well suited home. Please download in MS Word format or cut and paste into an email the application from our website carolinahelpingpawsrescue.com Her adoption fee is a donation to the rescue $150.00.
Our journey started when we took in a Chocolate Lab named Roxie. We brought her into our home setting and our hearts took over from there. She is our Inspiration and she is still with us today. We are a volunteer group of animal loving people who are the voice for as many as we can be. We can't look into the eyes of an animal and not see the soul that is there. We can't turn our heads and let it be someone's place to help. We all must do whatever is necessary. After that being said, we can't do it alone. We need all the volunteers, help, donations and sharing we can get. We are always looking for fosters to step up to save a life. We provide the food and vetting, we ask that you open your heart and home to help them to reach their final forever home. We are just a stepping stone to their forever home. You can help make that happen. If anyone is interested in anyway to helping our cause we welcome you. We always need fundraising ideas, people to help with fundraiser. We save animals from shelters, abuse cases, neglect and the poor souls who are dumped. We encourage anyone to lend a helping hand in some way. Doing something small is better than not doing anything at all.
