My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Woofie is a sweet boy who came to our rescue in the spring of 2022 after being surrendered to a shelter when he was just eight months old.  Woofie struggled with anxiety and desperately needed to build confidence.  In July of 2023, Woofie was accepted into the Happy Hounds Prison Dog Program where he worked on leash walking, basic obedience, and socializing with other dogs. 


He completed his time in the program and is now looking for an adopter to call his own. His anxiety has greatly approved and he has done well with some other dogs with a slow and proper intro.  Woofie will need patience and love in his forever home and would benefit from ongoing training and socialization.  He is neutered, current on vaccines and preventatives, and is microchipped.  He would do best in a home without young children.  Interested in Woofie?

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The first step in our adoption process is to fill out an adoption application, we do check Vet references and personal references. Once processed we then do a home visit and met and greet. We do have an adoption agreement that the adopter must sign at the time of the adoption. Our adoption fee is $300.

Go meet their pets

Meet and greets are scheduled once a potential adopter's adoption application has been approved. We do not have a physical location, all dogs are in foster homes. Another great way to meet our dogs is at events. All events are posted on our Facebook page so check back frequently!

More about this rescue

Black Dogs & Company Rescue (BD&CR) rescues dogs from high kill shelters in Maryland and surrounding states. We are an all breed rescue but specialize in black dogs. Please read about black dog syndrome. These dogs are the last to be adopted (if at all) so they have a hard time leaving the shelter. You may have also noticed the old english sheepdog in our logo. We are the regional contact for OES rescue. They are not the dog for everyone but once you own one (and walk the sheepie way) you will love the breed!
