My story

Teddy is handsome black 1 to 2 year old, long-haired, floppy eared, long-tail, 35-40 lb neutered male dog.  He was found as an injured stray in Gilmer county, GA, rescued by Animal Control who took him to the Copper Basin Clinic in McCaysville, GA for emergency treatment for his facial wounds.  We took him in to give him a chance to recuperate following surgery.  He is hw positive and is currently on ivermectin and doxycycline for the slow-kill method of killing the worms.  Teddy is very sweet and just wants to be loved while he recovers.  The fur has grown back, covering his scars which are not visible.  He resembles a miniature Newfoundland in appearance.  Teddy is fully vetted now and recovering slowly and living with a pack of 8 other dogs.  He uses a doggy door to go outside.  If you are interested in helping or adopting Teddy, please call Ron Stoessell at 985-630-1613 or email him at

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our adoption application and contract can be found at We ask for a $150 donation at the time of adoption. Before adoption, a home visit and references are checked and a one week trial period has successfully passed. Homes are required to have a fenced yard and the animal must be allowed inside at night. Animals are not allowed to be tied up outside for more than several hours or crated for long periods, except for sleeping at night in the house.

Go meet their pets

Contact Ron Stoessell at to come and meet animals in Southwest North Carolina in Lost Dogs Run that are available for adoption. He will notify the fosters and set up a time for meeting them.

More about this rescue

Our Board has previously volunteered and served on the Boards of St. Francis Animal Sanctuary, The Delta Humane Society of Louisiana, Logan's Run Rescue and volunteered at the Valley River Humane Society Thrift Store and Shelter. Our years of rescue experience have shown us that rescue animals are best served by keeping them out of Shelters. We rely on volunteers to foster them while we vet them and find homes for them. Fostered animals are house trained and socialized before adoption. We actively promote fostering of rescue animals by members of the local community.
