Story
Grady is 11 years old. She is a very laid back girl. Likes to fetch the ball and lay around on her pillow. She is house trained to go outside and listens extremely well. Doesn’t jump and rarely barks. She is an exceptional dog without any health issues and very low maintenance. Has lived with two girls who are now in college. I’ve developed allergies to her over the last few years and it’s just getting worse. She has short hair and sheds but usually just around her bed and she is trained never to get on the furniture. She has had regular yearly physicals and up to date on shots along with flea tick and heart worm meds throughout her life and is in excellent health. Looking to find her a loving and wonderful home!

Introducing Kingsley! He is sweetest, goofiest guy! Kingsley loves attention from people. He loves to go on walks (he prefers short walks as he is a bit of a couch potato). A Kong with some peanut butter will make him the happiest guy in the world. He crates like a dream. He only barks when someone he doesn’t know is nearby. He just loves to be near people. He will make an absolutely wonderful companion for someone looking for a chill guy who just wants to be in your company. Kingsley will do best in a home with a fence, older teenage kids. Kingsley also will do best in a home as the only pet. Don't miss out on this boy! Submit your application at southcharlottedogrescue.com
