***Special Needs***
Cher is a very shy yet charming canine on a journey to find a patient parent(s) with a relaxed lifestyle. She's looking for someone who can offer gentle guidance to help her come out of her shell. If you treat her sweetly and kindly, she promises to blossom in your care.

Meet Our Shy but Sweet Canine Duo - Lab/Chessie Sisters

Sienna and Cherry, our Lab/Chessie sisters, have had a challenging start in life. They require a special family with personal experience in caring for abused dogs. These pups have unique needs stemming from their traumatic past, akin to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Both Sienna and Cherry are on medication called Clonidine, which has significantly improved their well-being and is affordable at only $10 for 180 tablets from Walmart.


Sienna and Cherry's journey began when they were rescued at the tender age of 5 months. They were starving and scared but have now transformed into beautiful and loving dogs under our care.


While initially shy, these sisters have charming personalities that shine through once they feel safe and loved. They yearn for an home that can provide patience and a relaxed lifestyle to help them fully recover from their past traumas.


We are seeking a family with personal experience in caring for abused dogs. Sienna and Cherry need a family that understands their history and is committed to continuing their healing and trust-building journey.

Physical Characteristics

As of now, both dogs weigh around 75 lbs when fully grown.

There are a few videos below so you can see how they react here in their foster home. Witness their incredible transformation in this video, from their first arrival as scared, starving pups to their thriving selves today. 

How to Adopt

If you have the love, patience, and experience to provide a forever home to these deserving Lab/Chessie sisters, please  read our adoption requirements & if you can meet or exceed them, you can apply online. Your kindness can help them fully embrace the loving life they deserve.

Let's give these sisters the second chance they've been waiting for. Together, we can make their future brighter and full of love. ❤️

Please Note

We have a strict requirement that they can only be adopted by a family with personal experience in caring for abused dogs. Our lovely Lab/Chessie sisters were abused in their previous lives in VA. While they've made great progress in their foster home, they are initially nervous around humans. However, with time and patience, they warm up and show no aggression, only a deep longing for trust and love.

We accept Venmo, Zelle, PayPal & Credit Cards for the adoption fee.

We only accept a physical fence 4 foot or higher. Some dogs require a higher fence & that is noted in their profile.

If you are interested in a certain pup/dog, please read each profile to be sure the pup/dog matches your lifestyle. Our strict adoption requirements are based on our years of experience & unless you can meet our minimal adoption requirements .... you will not be approved.
