Story
All Southern Crescent Canine Rescue pets are spayed or neutered, all vaccinations are up to date, heartworm negative, and microchipped. We suggest follow-up intestinal worming two weeks after adoption.  We require monthly heartworm preventive after adoption!He's a sweet friendly boy and he comes when he's called. Apartment living is not for him, he howls quite loudly he sounds like he's an old man when he howls. He lets you know when he needs to go to the bathroom when he's being crated. I don't think he'd do well in a home where the family is gone for 8 hours every day. I think he would be great with kids and he does play nice with the female dogs. He tries to dominate the males but he gets put in his place. He's a great little dog. He really enjoys spending most of his time outside in the backyard playing. He probably never got a chance to do so.   Contact Claudette=skabeagle@gmail.com for more info and meeting!                                  'We Are Rescue' Until you have held a tiny puppy in your arms as it kissed your face with slobbery puppy breath and felt the love, Until you have held an injured or severely ill dog in your arms and felt their pain, Until you have looked into the eyes of a tired aging senior dog and felt their wisdom, And until you have seen and understood the look in your dogs eyes that tell you their time on earth with you is over .... and you humanely let them go, You will never understand the life of a rescuer.

Story
Maya was a stray until recently. She found us and we had her scanned for a chip. She comes from the Macon, Ga area was re-homed at some point but the new owner cannot be contacted (phone and e-mail no longer work). Maya is a SWEET dog. She’s over 2 years old, house broken, and very affectionate. She is good with adults and kids. Maya has a lot of energy so she needs a yard for exercise. We need to find her a permanent loving home because we have 4 adopted dogs and 4 adopted cats. Maya gets along great with the other dogs. She plays with them and is really good with male and female pets. She does not like cats though. She chases our cats, but never cornered one. We are not sure what she would do if she caught one. Maya would do well as a single dog or other dogs. She likes to play so a yard or close by park would be ideal. she is as sweet of a dog as i’ve ever been around. The only reason we need to rehome her is we already have so many pets we are taking care of.

Story
Hi! I'm Jackson. I was adopted from Second Chance as a puppy from a pretty rough living conditon. Over the year, my family realized that I would do best in a household that is calm and quiet, preferrably with just adults. So here I am back at Second Chance trying again to find the prefect pawrents.  I am very shy and just a tiny bit scared of my own shawdow, why does it keep following me? Anyways, I warm up with time and understanding, I am very smart and know the command sit. I have great manners if I say so myself.  I would do best in a household with no other pets and no children under 13. I can be a bit dog-selective. I will need pawrents who understand that I am shy and busy/loud environments make me very nervous. I will thrive in a stable environment, with a yard of my own. Walks are fine from time to time, but sometimes loud noises, falling leaves, or something out of place, like a repair van, make walks for me a bit stressful. Therefore, a fenced-in yard will be required to adopt me. I've had all my shots, I've been neutered, and am ready to go home. I also come with a registered microchip and a full set of medical records (one copy for you and one for my new vet).  If you are interested in meeting me, please complete an adoption application online. Upon pre-approval, someone will reach out to set up a time for you to come meet me. Requirements to adopt me: - Adopter must be 25 years or older - Must own home, no renters - Must have a fenced-in yard - No children in the home under 13 years old ##1562218##

Story
Hi, my name is Peppermint Patty. Some call me Peppy for short. It is estimated that I am just about 2 years old. I am super smart, I already know sit, boop, down, drop it, and leave it. I also know what they mean when they tell me to pee or poop on a walk, these are just the beginnings of words that I am learning, and I can (and want to) learn so much more! I would benefit most from a home with someone VERY active and would like to take the time to train me on many more commands. The sky is the limit as to what I can learn. I do get along with other dogs (with slow introductions), but I am also very intense, so it depends on whether the other dog is willing and able to set boundaries for me. I require slow introductions to people as well, you can't just trust everyone. Since I am young, and strong, it would be best to be in a home without children. I love to go on walks, but love yard zoomies as well, so a fenced-in yard is preferred. I am a bit of a handful, so we don't want anyone to think they are entering into this lightly with me. I will need love, time and lots of training to be the best dog I can be. In return, you will have my loyalty and love, I'm a very wonderful companion. No DNA tests have been done, but since Cattle Dog and possibly Blue Nose Pit are both on the restricted breed list, homeownership is required to adopt me. No renters. I have all had all of my shots, and am spayed. This is all included in my adoption fee, as well as a registered microchip and a full set of medical records for you and my future vet! If you are interested in meeting me, please complete an adoption application. Upon pre-approval, someone will reach out to set up a time for a meet and greet. I'm looking forward to meeting you! Only applicants who meet the following current requirements will be considered: - Homeownership, no renters - Children in the home must be 13 and up - Fenced yard not required, but preferred ##1596640##
