FOSTER PARENT COMMENTS: Presley loves to cuddle with her family.  She will jump into a lap whenever given a chance:-) She has never met a stranger or a biscuit that she didn't like. She likes to keep her people within paw's reach and likes to stay close when relaxing.  

She lives with two foster sisters – one dog is a little bigger than Presley, and the other is a little smaller.  After a fairly short introduction period, they are the best of friends.   She MIGHT be ok around cats, after an introduction period.   She has had only a limited exposure.

Presley relaxes comfortably in her crate if we need to be away for an extended timeframe.

She eats in her crate, and follows a routine:  crate up, sit, shake, wait, (put food bowl down), (pause), OK – eat!  (we don’t close the door to the crate – that is just her eating location)

She is energetic, and loves to run!  -- but she is wary of thunder and lightning – and we think she might be afraid of the dark.

Presley loves tomatoes – and would be delighted to have her ‘own’ tomato  plant! 

Presley is really smart, and knows many obedience commands.  She walks well on a leash (in appropriate surrounds without close distractions). She loves to take brisk walks to burn off some energy.  She knows sit, stay, wait, leave it, finish, touch, focus, shake – and many more. 

Mostly, Presley has great house manners – she does like to cuddle on the couch!

She has been around a lot of different people, including children.  While she is excited when initially greeting new people, she quickly settles down.   We have never seen her have a problem when people “mess with” her feet, tail, ears, etc.

Presley will be great with someone who will love her all the time and be her leader.  She is not a good choice for an unleashed dog park, or an environment where she will be around dogs she doesn’t know. Presley would love to find a forever family that would be willing to continue her training so that she can reach her full potential.

EVERY DOG HAS A STORY: BFPA received a heart wrenching plea about a heavily pregnant dog who had been taken into a rural high kill shelter, only to give birth on the cold concrete floor the following day. Thankfully, a wonderful foster family opened their hearts to her and her 7 newborn puppies. Presley raised her puppies (they've all been adopted) and she is now waiting for her own forever family.  Will this be your family?? 

Some of the information contained in this biography includes approximations based on our expertise and is not guaranteed. We do home visits to finalize adoptions and/or deliver the adopted dog. Therefore, we prefer potential adopters live a reasonable distance to the Triangle area (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) of North Carolina.

About Best Friend Pet Adoption

About Our Rescue Group...

Best Friend Pet Adoption (BFPA) is a no-kill animal rescue organization based in central North Carolina. BFPA has no building, office, or shelter. We are an all-foster network committed to helping dogs and cats in need of homes. Individual donations are our most important source of income as we receive no public funding.

Our purpose is to provide medical assistance, foster homes, and adoption services to previously lost, abandoned, abused, or neglected animals in Wake County, NC and the surrounding counties. Our mission is to educate this disposable society in which we live that every life should be valued and cherished and is directly linked to human responsibility and commitment.

Almost all the animals we rescue require immediate medical attention. BFPA never turns away or euthanizes an animal because of the expense involved in returning them to good health. All our rescued animals are evaluated for temperament, examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, microchipped (if possible) and sterilized, if age appropriate. Cats and dogs receive monthly flea/tick preventative and dogs also receive monthly heartworm preventative.

The most important ingredients we provide to these animals are loving care and a safe haven -- something most of them have never experienced. These cats and dogs live in volunteer foster homes until we find them a loving permanent home, however long it takes. We match these precious beings to a single, couple or family who understand cats and dogs should be full participating members of the family. Our hope is that these animals never have to experience being unloved again.

Since our beginning, BFPA has rescued and placed thousands of cats and dogs into their forever homes.

BFPA was created in 1998 by two Raleigh-area women who had volunteered with other established rescues in the Triangle. Their dedication to help homeless dogs and cats has led to an organization that has grown to over 225 volunteers strong.

BFPA received 501(c)(3) status in 1999.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Pets can be met during our adoption events (mostly on Saturdays) or by arrangements with the foster family.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our adoptions require submission of an application which is processed and and must be approved by our adoption coordinator. Potential adopters then take the animal on a trial (minimum of 2 weeks) before the adoption is finalized. This helps to ensure a good fit between the adopting family and the animal. All animals must be up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and microchipped before the adoption can be finalized. Adoption fee is $225 for dogs, $115 for cats.
