Story
Buddy is a 9 year of age sweeeeet ol' guy! He is a small medium at about 35 pounds and has gorgeous Husky blue eyes! Buddy would love a home that would include him in their activities and give him lots of love and pets! He is the perfect pal to watch TV, go on a walk, tell all your worries and be your huggable teddy bear! He came from an overcrowded home with too many dogs and sort of got lost in the shuffle! Buddy is house trained, walks well on a leash for never having been on one, he is quiet and is a lovely guy! He has a rough coat, sort of a Terrier / Lab mix coat. We'd love to get this very deserving guy his very own wonderful family! Please email us with any additional questions or for an application! Email: blueridgerescue@aol.com

Story
Say hello to Layla! This is one resilient dog! Layla was tied out to a trailer and, not surprisingly, found herself with a little family! She was dropped at the shelter and needed a hero to save her family! Layla has finished her motherly duties and is now looking for that family to give her a second chance at life! Her first go-round was no picnic but we are amazed at how friendly, loving and awesome she is! Layla looks like a Shepherd mix, but she has some coloring like an Aussie as well. She's a nice medium size at around 48 pounds. Layla is in a wonderful foster home that is teaching her leash walking, crating, and general house manners. Layla does well with the children in the home, gets along very well with the other dogs and has met cats but we haven't had them full time in her environment. Layla is potty trained, is wonderfully social and has a nice positive attitude! She is trying to make up for lost time as she loves her toys and stuffed animals. Layla makes a great walking / hiking partner and will make a wonderful addition to a new family household. If you'd like to meet / adopt Layla, please email us at blueridgerescue@aol.com

Story
Margarita is a beautiful, white with black spots, female puppy! She and her two siblings were found and dropped at a rural shelter. She is currently about 12 weeks of age and her little legs are growing and getting longer. Margarita is about 9 pounds currently and expected to be a medium or small/medium size when grown. Margarita is a playful, curious girl. She and her sister helped work a birthday party with at least twenty 10-12 year olds and their feet never touched the ground! They did great with the children and enjoyed all the attention. We are looking for patient, committed homes that will put in the puppy work of socializing and obedience training to help this girl grown to be a wonderful, mannerly adult! Interested in adopting, please email us at blueridgerescue@aol.com for an application!

Rumrunner is a 13 week old possible Australian Cattle dog mix. He's a playful puppy who loves attention. His momma was a feral stray and he and his two sisters were found and taken to a rural KY shelter. He is now fully vetted and ready to find his family that will mold him into a wonderful adult dog! He's currently 9 pounds and we anticipate he'll be a small/medium size when grown. He's a fun puppy that will fit into most family makeups.
