Facts about Holly

  • Breed: Flat-Coated Retriever/Australian Shepherd Mix
  • Color: Black - With Brown, Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
When we rescued this girl and her sister from the high kill shelter in rural South Carolina, she was in bad shape; emaciated, dirty and so unsure about the world. Now in foster with a wonderful family (including children) and a dozen or so other dogs, Holly is doing well in her new environment. All cleaned up with weight on and healthy, Holly is learning the better side of life. She seems to be about six months old and weighs 26lbs. She is a bit shyer than her sister Molly, but is also coming around and learning to trust. We are guessing she will be about 45ish lbs when she is full grown. With love, encouragement and a home of her own we know Molly will make a wonderful new member of your family.Small children will probably scare her so older children would be a better fit. If you would like to show Holly how grand life can be in your forever home, your first step is to copy and paste this link to fill out our online application, http://members.petfinder.com/~CT243/sampleform.html. Holly has been spayed, microchipped and up to date on shots. Full vetting and transport up north is included in her $450 adoption fee. We cannot be certain what her true mix is.

About Sweet Adoptables

About Our Rescue Group...

Our first experience with rescue was when we brought Jessie up from a kill shelter in North Carolina. Our family couldn't believe that they were killing sweet, wonderful dogs like this every day. We decided to do something about it. That was the beginning of our journey into rescue in 2006.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Sorry, You CAN'T Visit Us - We DO NOT have a facility in Connecticut. All of our dogs (unless noted) remain in the south until they have an approved adopter.

Our Adoption Process...

How To Adopt From Us
The first step is to SUBMIT AN APPLICATION found on each dog's Petfinder description. When possible, the next step is checking with your Vet reference. We will then schedule a phone interview with the potential adopter to determine if the dog would be a good match for your family. A home visit is at our discretion. If the match is approved, the adopter will enter into an adoption agreement, at which point we arrange transport for the dog to it's new family. We endeavor to create forever homes for these deserving dogs; therefore, we reserve the right to refuse adoption of a dog if we determine the family is not the correct match for the dog/puppy.
