Story
Meet Brantley! Quick Facts: Breed: Pitbull X Estimated Birthday: 1/1/2016 Size: 49 lbs Brantley hasn’t had the easiest life. He was a shelter dog at a young age who had a bad respiratory infection and heartworms. With the odds stacked against him already as a black Pitbull in a shelter, throw in some medical issues, and he was the perfect addition to our rescue crew. Healed from infection + treated for heartworms, Brantley found what seemed to be his forever home. But Brantley's family grew over the years, and unfortunately, Brantley found himself on the backburner, and once again subjected to being dropped off at the shelter. Luckily, the shelter reached out to us, and we quickly picked Brantley up - though he is now filled with confusion and on medication to help relieve his anxiety. On a happier note, Brantley is still a great companion and we have faith we can find a true forever home for him. He likes to go on walks, showing off his zoomies outside, and playing fetch.. but it's more fetch for you, because Brantley doesn't believe in the vital part of the game that includes actually bringing the ball back. His absolute favorite game is hanging out with his humans - he's a fantastic nap buddy, always advocating for the cause, and would appreciate a fluffed pillow and a blanket. This boy loves a good car ride, as long as you promise snacks for the goodest boi (him, duh). Brantley is dog selective so would do best in a home by himself or with calm, submissive dogs the same size or smaller than him with proper introductions. He does get a little greedy with toys and bones, so Brantley's goodies - like peanut butter filled kongs - are only included in his "me-time" crate training currently. He’s never met a cat that we know of. He has lived with kids and does fine after proper introduction but does not enjoy being crawled on or pulled on, so older kids would be preferred. He does have crate anxiety which we are actively working on. He can go short stints in a crate but then feels like his people have left him all over again. He’s currently doing better in an indestructible crate, but actually is (mostly) reliable outside of the crate when you're not home. If you are looking for a best friend who loves to go on car rides, walks, play ball, and nap peacefully while you're catching up on the latest Yellowstone episode, Brantley is your guy.

Charlotte, NC

Story
Introducing Shamu! Quick Facts: Breed: Maybe a little lab, maybe a little boxer, maybe a little bit of Boston terrier to account for her spunky nature. Age: 7-8 years old. Size: Around 60# Now, this girl might not be as big in size as her marine-life namesake, but her heart rivals it easily. Shamu is the sweetest Lab/Boxer mix, with likely a little bit of everything else sprinkled in. She is bigger-dog friendly with proper introductions, but doesn't appreciate the yippy sounds that emit from small, fluffy dogs and isn't exactly kitty friendly. She still thinks she can catch a squirrel even though we've told her to give it up. She makes up for this with her love of ALL humans, big or small, hairy or wild. In her mature state, she enjoys a good lounge around the house & will even give you enough space on the couch to stretch your legs out. Shamu prefers to sleep in the same room as her family at night so she can make sure everyone is safe and sound. This girl is crate trained, house trained, and a terrible guard dog, saving most of her barking for her vivid dreams. Please read the information below and if you have any further questions please EMAIL us at dogs@c2cnd.org and we will respond as soon as possible! If you're interested in adopting, please visit our website at www.c2cnd.org & complete the adoption application. -The adoption fee for Shamu is $265 -The adoption fee covers their age appropriate shots, microchip, deworming, heartworm test (if old enough to be tested & treatment if necessary), and spay/neuter. -Due to our thorough adoption process including home visits, we limit our adoptions to local families. Charlotte and surrounding cities only. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Story
Meet Blaise! If you are looking for a high energy but cuddly and loving dog, Blaise is the girl for you! It’s been a rough year for poor Blaise... she just can't seem to find the right fit for her unique outlook on life. She needs to be in a home that has a fenced in yard to show off her amazing “zoomie” skills. Blaise is looking for a person who will keep her mentally stimulated. Estimated Birthday: 12/10/2018 Breed: Part staffy/part lab/all sass Weight: 55 pounds - Blaise is a smart, curious girl who loves to explore. She absolutely loves to go on hikes! She will sniff every plant, leaf, bug, rock… anything she comes in contact with. - She can walk very well on a leash with anyone who follows the expectations set up through previous training. With that said, she is reactive to other dogs so crowded areas around other dogs are not ideal places for her to explore. She can be especially vocal when she sees another dog, and she has a very unique voice that will definitely get attention. - Blaise is a rock star inside the house. Completely house and crate trained, she loves to hang out with her people either on the couch or in the bed. She just wants to be wherever they are. - As long as she gets her energy out either with a run, a good walk with lots of amazing smells, and some mind-stimulating games, she just wants to cuddle. Blaise is seeking an adopter who will continue professional training for her socialization skills and obedience. She needs to be the only pet in the home (no other dogs or cats) and because of her high energy no kids under the age of 15. Before emailing- please read: - Yes, this dog is available for adoption - The adoption fee for Blaise is $265 - Apply at c2cnd.org - The adoption fee covers their age appropriate shots, microchip, deworming, spay/neuter, and any other medical expenses while in our care. - Local adopters only. Due to our thorough adoption process including home visits, we limit our adoptions to local families in the greater Charlotte area. - If you have any additional questions, email us at dogs@c2cnd.org and we will respond as soon as possible!

Story
Hi I'm Henry - a single, handsome male seeking a monogamous or polyamorous relationship (don’t judge) Breed: Lab/Pittie/Husky mix Estimated Birthday: 12/4/2015 House & crate trained Hi everyone! Foster lady says I need to tell you about myself so my furever family can find me. Here it goes: Well, I’m a big, handsome guy with a lot of love to give (hence the polyamorous mention above, there’s plenty of me to go around!). - I get along with dogs - The ladies love me (foster lady says I love the ladies more than they love me but what does she know, sounds like jealousy to me) - Cats don’t faze me - I love to be around people! - My absolute favorite thing in life are balls!! The only thing better than balls is water and.... balls! I mean, really, what is better than playing fetch all day?!? - I have a ton of energy! After a good play session I like to cuddle on the couch with my people - Car rides excite me, so much so that I need to be in a crate in the car otherwise I jump all over the place. I’m just excited to be going on an adventure! - I have a fear of the loud boom boom’s (thunder and fireworks). They’re scary and I feel better if I’m on your lap during these. (I’m really not afraid, I just want to make sure you aren’t – Foster lady is just trying to make me look like a scaredy cat). - I know basic commands – sit, stay, come - So, as you can see, I’m the full package! Who’s ready to come sweep me away?! Seeking: - Home with kids over the age of 12 due to energy level Before emailing- please read: - Yes, this dog is available for adoption - The adoption fee for Henry is $265 - Apply at c2cnd.org - The adoption fee covers their age appropriate shots, microchip, deworming, spay/neuter, and any other medical expenses while in our care. - Local adopters only.

Story
Axel Breed: Shepherd mix Estimated Birthday: 12/12/2012 Weight: 45 pounds House & crate trained Meet sweet Axel. This boy is looking for a loving home where he sun bath and destuff all the toys available. Axel is mostly blind due to cataracts in both eyes, because of this he will need a yard with a fenced yard so he doesn't accidently wonder off. Axel also has a few other health conditions his adopter would need to be mindful of, he's experiencing hearing loss in his golden years, arthritis, slipped disc and a heart murmur. This sweet old man would love a calm and relaxing atmosphere where he can sunbathe and stare out of the window. Axel's past is unfortunately unknown. While we can never fully understand his past, we do know he is very wary of men. Axel is a ladies man through & through and would prefer a female caretaker and female doggy companion. - Knows his basic commands like 'sit' and 'shake' and walks lovely on leash. - Takes time to get used to strangers and needs an adopter who is willing to be patient with him as he learns to trust - You can always catch Axel with a toy in his mouth! He loves zippy paws toys and will carry his "babies" around in his mouth - Enjoys following you all around the house and just wants to be with you - Likes to snuggle on your lap or lay right up next to you! As long as part of him is touching you he is content! - Does well with female teenagers & female adults. - Does well in the crate but also can free roam in his foster's home - Due to Axel only liking female dogs, he would not be suitable for dog park/dog bark environments. - Has not been tested with cats Before emailing- please read: - Yes, this dog is available for adoption - The adoption fee for Axel is $265 - Apply at c2cnd.org - The adoption fee covers their age appropriate shots, microchip, deworming, spay/neuter, and any other medical expenses while in our care. - Local adopters only.
