Shadow is spayed, potty-trained, up-to-date on vaccinations, has an amazing temperament and is a very calm dog (unless you've just got home, then she'll want to give kisses.) She does bark occasionally if someone has knocked on the front door, but we've been working to train her out of it. Shadow is extremely good with children, indoor cats and adults. Other dogs, she's a little antsy about until she gets to know them. She currently lives in a home with another dog and really is enjoying his company.  
Shadow is appropriately named because she loves to chase light and shadows. She is full of energy and loves going for walks, but is also independent and loves to nap. She loves to cuddle and while she is a large dog, she can curl up and become very compact.  She loves tennis balls and chew toys.   We think she is a German Shepard / Chow Mix


In August, we took in this sweet dog belonging to family members who could no longer afford to take proper care of her.    She was having allergic reactions which needed time and money to remedy. She had allergies to poison ivy that were tough for about 4 weeks, but we've worked with our vet to perform some very intense rehabilitation. Her name is Shadow, and is now full of pep, love and is looking for a great home.  She will be a wonderful addition to a family.  We hope that you will consider adopting her and giving her the great forever home she deserves.       DISCLAIMER: We hope you'll consider adopting Shadow. She is a privately rescued dog. This means that Shadow is not a part of or associated with Best Friend Pet Adoption (BFPA). The bio information listed for her was provided by individual caregivers and not generated or verified by BFPA. Adoption arrangements will be a private arrangement between you and the private rescuer. As with any dog adoption, BFPA encourages potential adopters to gain as much information as possible before adopting. This includes temperament testing and verification of vet records to ensure the dog is in good health, UTD on vaccinations and has been sterilized.  INTERESTED IN ADOPTING SHADOW?   For more information about this dog, please email Mike at

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.
