Meadow is a special girl who was just rescued from a horrific hoarding situation the day before her pictures, video and assessment. Her owner died, a hoarder who left 32 dogs living in squalor, many of them chained to various things in the yard or shed.

Meadow was hiding in a metal barrel, her only shelter. We had to pull her out but she never growled and she was calm in the car on the ride back to the shelter. She was fine for her first bath ever and her vaccinations.

The next day, she seemed to suddenly shut down after going from living with 31 other dogs in chaos to being in a kennel by herself in a quiet, unfamiliar setting, no matter how nice in comparison. We were not able to bring along her male companion at the time of rescue.

As we get to know Meadow, it seems she is telling us that she really likes male dogs, but not females. She would love to have a new male companion in her new home since she is used to that and truly feels more comfy and safe with a husband!

As you can see in her video, she does warm up to kind people with tasty treats. She actually seems to be fairly submissive to people. We will have patient volunteers spend time with her and will do all we can to help her feel safer and learn to become more sociable.

She is already starting to make great eye contact and to perk up when she sees us coming back to see her, especially if she knows we might bring really nice treats. She will need to learn to trust people, but she seems willing and able, just is so inexperienced. We think she may have been in the hoarding situation for all or most of her life.

Meadow has good potential, just has so much to learn, so her new owner will need to be experienced with shy, inexperienced dogs. She shows no indications that she might fear nip unless she is completely backed into a corner with no way out (in her mind). Remember, we were able to pull her from her sheltering barrel without any indications that she felt the need to defend herself. Everything here is just so new to her, sweet girl.

Meadows has lovely, soulful eyes and appears to be well fed and a good weight. She is probably young. She is 34.8 pounds.

Will you be the one who is willing and able to turn this nice girls life around and show her what it is to be a beloved pet in a normal home? Do you have plenty of patience, a calm demeanor, and a male companion pup for her? Come meet our Meadows and give her the chance that she longs for.

Since the dogs in the hoarding situation did not get preventative medications, Meadow is heartworm positive but she is already on the slow, gentle treatment that allows her to live a normal life in the meantime. All she needs to do is stay on the monthly preventative that all dogs should be given and take a few rounds of inexpensive antibiotics. We have found that this easy, inexpensive, and much safer treatment results in pups becoming completely free of the heartworms over time. She can still come home with you today!

Our Adoption Process...

In order to match our pets with their perfect owner, we undergo a relatively thorough Adoption Application and background check during our adoption process. From there, we will set up a "meet 'n greet," so you can spend some time with the prospective pet, and get to know him/her more intimately. If all approved, we will do a home delivery. There is an adoption fee.

Please note that we do not ship animals. We also require a home visit before finalizing any adoptions so preference is given to applicants within a 90 mile range. You will be required to come to High Point, NC to meet/pick up your new pet.
