Shemp's Story...
4-20-09 Another shelter anniversary for Shemp--he came to us 5 years ago this week. Come by the shelter and see him! 1-13-08 I let Shemp's anniversary date go without notice on his petfinder post, but he never goes unnoticed at our shelter. There is not a better natured dog anywhere. Shemp came to our shelter 4 years ago in May as a sweet puppy, has been adopted and returned twice, neither time for his own behavior, but because of circumstances with his families. Still, Shemp is wonderful with all the dogs here and greets every volunteer and visitor with a grin. We hope to find the perfect forever home for our special Shemp, but we will enjoy him every day until then.10-24-06 Another year has passed and Shemp has come back to us--no fault of his own. The family we thought would be forever moved and couldn't take him. He is as cute and sweet as ever, gets along wonderfully with all of our other dogs and has even resumed his puppy sitting duties! Shemp is a great dog--come see him! --3-22-05 Since Shemp has been with us a year--- I have updated his pictures. Someone has lost a year of fun and laughs with this big guy. He is very alert to everything going on at our shelter and best friend to all of our other dogs and volunteers. Shemp is worth a trip to the Charleston shelter to visit!

4-04 Shemp was dropped at our shelter without any word from an owner. He must have had some love in his life because he is very well mannered and affectionate. He gets along very well with all the other dogs; he is especially cute and gentle with the puppies. He is just a big puppy himself-we think he is less than a year old and about 50 pounds. Shemp loves to play, he would love to have a kid to run and play with. .

Please save lives by adopting from shelters and rescues and by spaying and neutering your own pets!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shemp, a Charleston Catahoula Leopard Dog/Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Shar Pei for sale in Charleston, or seeking a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Charleston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Charleston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Charleston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Catahoula Leopard Dog/Shar Pei breeders who help with Catahoula Leopard Dog/Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Charleston paves the way for another one to be saved.
