Story
I got Beau 6 years ago from a breeder in High Point at birth. He is 6 years old and full of life. We live in a neighborhood with a small backyard where he stays at. He is an extremely playful and loving dog. He just wants to lick and love on everybody. We recently have a new baby and between the baby and work I am not able to spend much time with him, and my wife is not a huge dog person. I want him to have someone who can love on him more and play with him. He is full of energy and loves to run. He is registered, and has an incredible pedigree with numerous field trial dogs is his lineage. He's been around kids a couple times and seemed to be great with them. I feel like there is a home out there where he can get more love and attention.

Quavo seems like a very happy dog.  This 8 year old boy was adopted in 2016 but ended up back at the shelter as a stray this past September.  He seems great with other dogs, friendly with people, and has a very gentle personality.  Plus he smiles a lot!  Quavo is really a great dog. ##1838602##

Story
Dobby was picked up as a stray by his local shelter.  He warms up slowly, but when he knows you he likes to be petted and will sit on your lap. He will keep you entertained when he  dances on his hind legs to get a treat.  He is great little dog and deserves a wonderful home so that he will never have to worry again about being safe, or where his next meal will come from.   ##1790571##

Story
My owner rescued me from a puppy mill when I was eight weeks old. I am now a healthy happy 2 year old. I love to go outside and I have lots of energy. I sad to say that my mom can no longer keep me, although she would love to. I am hoping someone is willing to love me and make me a part of the family.
