Charlie is blue heeler mix. Charlie showed up at our house one morning. He was extremely scared of men. He was very interested in all my foster dogs but a bit scared to come up to us. Next thing we know he was inside our fence with my bloodhound. Hes been with us since. Hes older about 6 or 7 years old. Being at our house he has learned all men aren't bad. Fear is hard to let go of so he can be nervous when things get hectic. He does well with other dogs but looses he patients with puppies. He will warn with a growl when hes has had enough but hasn't hurt anyone. Mostly ignores cats. He shows no aggression towards people. He would do great in a home that has a mellow atmosphere. He needs a savior. Charlies been through a lot and would love to have someone give him a stable loving home. He does have accidents but he's learning. I believe he was outside a lot in his life and he's learning how to be an inside dog. He loves feeling important enough to be allowed inside. Charlie deserves a chance to have a loving family of his own.
We are a small rescue group located in Snyder, TX. All of our pets are kept in private homes by private fosters. We attend adoption events in Lubbock, TX on a regular basis and go to Abilene, TX on occasion. We also arrange for meet and greets here in Snyder when necessary. The rescue started in September of 2012 with rescuing one dog, and we quickly expanded our program. In the first 5 months of 2013 we have rescued 220+ dogs and about 15 cats. We are always looking for new fosters, volunteers and can always use donations. For every dog we can save there are 10X more that we can't. Our primary focus is on dogs, but we do help with kittens/cats when we can.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We are always available for private meetings in Snyder. We try to attend adoption events in Lubbock at the Petsmart on Slide Road at least twice a month ~ more when we have the volunteers to handle the event. We can arrange for transport to most places within 4 hours of Snyder and sometimes further. It never hurts to ask ~ we might have someone going your way.
Our Adoption Process...
All dogs and cats require an adoption application. All dogs and cats we pull from shelters are spayed/neutered before being adopted (without exception). Our adoption fee is $150 to cover basic vetting and rescue fees, unforseen vetting is absorbed by us. We try to return inquiries within 24 hours (Holidays may cause delays).
