Story
** SPECIAL NEEDS - HEARTWORM POSITIVE**Greetings humans!The name is Juniper and I'm a pointy-eared girl that was found running as a stray and was never reclaimed by my previous folks. After several days of hanging out at FDHS and waiting for someone to come and realizing that no one was, I've decided to set my sights on finding a new family to love me forever and ever.I'm always called a "pretty" or "smart" girl by my caretakers and I really love the compliments and attention. I would love for my new family to have the time to give me what I'm looking for. I learn new things with ease so catching onto your household routine shouldn't be too hard for me!The staff said I am pretty strong on leash- so I would likely do best in a home with a fenced yard. I have also been pretty reactive to some of the other shelter dogs so if I were to be sharing a home with another doggie sibling, we would need to meet and check each other out. I'm not sure how I feel about kitties or other small animals, so slow introductions would be the best.Although I am heartworm positive, I have begun treatment and the veterinary team at FDHS is confident I have a long and fulfilling life ahead of me! You're welcome to chat with the staff more about what that entails. I don't plan on hanging around these kennels long, so if you think we could be a good match fill out the application for me now!

Story
Meet Sweet Pea!As you can probably gather from her name Sweet Pea has a lot of love to give. Sweet Pea came to us as a stray and was not reclaimed by her family. She may be a little shy at first due to the shelter environment. Once she warms up, she will love you with a full heart!Sweet Pea is a mild-mannered girl who seems a little shy towards other dogs but should warm up with time. As always, we would prefer to do a Meet & Greet with any other dogs in the home. She seems to do okay on leash, though she likes to stop frequently for hugs and loves to play out back in the fenced yard.If you think Sweet Pea sounds like a good fit for you, get your adoption application in! ** Scheduled to be spayed and microchipped, heartworm negative, and up-to-date on vaccines & monthly prevention. She weighs about 77 lbs.**

Story
Meet Blake! Blake is looking for a home with a fenced yard to run endlessly in. Without a fence, he thinks it’s a fun game of chase to run for an hour (I’ll let you guess how we know 😬) Blake is fully grown, but has puppy energy! Lots of running and playing before we can take a nap on the couch where he can show you that he is the BEST cuddler. Blake does well with his cage, goes in without an issue. He does not do well at staying in his cage if he has not had enough exercise. Blake is also extremely smart; he has learned sir, shake, touch, under, spin, and heel so far. Blake is food motivated. He thinks he is starving, which has become better as we use the enzyme pills to help him properly digest his food. We are still tackling the diarrhea. Blake is well mannered when he isn’t distracted. Blake also suffers from the worst thing ever; selective hearing. Blake does well with all dogs, is cat curious (he finds them interesting and pushes them past their comfort on accident, he needs more guidance in being taught appropriate interactions). Blake can do well with kids BUT has a jumping issue; so no delicate kids 😆 He’s very resilient to any challenge he faces. He has a well mannered personality, but just needs guidance for overall manners. We initially were told Blake has EPI; but our vet has determined against that; therefore we are still working on a diagnosis.

Our pets are physically located and fostered in NC until adopted. Once adopted we can transport to you. We have a cost effective transporter that has stops in most north eastern states. She runs every 2 weeks. Please note! Don't just apply just because she has a cheap adopt fee. You must prove you can afford to adopt regardless! I find that most of the folks who apply for my reduced fee dogs back out when they realize they are still responsible for the transport fee. If this applies to you please don't waste our time!

Story
Our pets are fostered and physically located in NC until adopted. Once adopted we can deliver to your location or one of our north eastern delivery locations. We have a transporter who delivers north ever other week. Sheldon came from a local shelter. They were over full and he was in danger of being euthanized. He is a german shepherd mix. The vet said he is around 2 years old( as of 6-22-23). He is a tall lanky dog, around 65 to 70 pounds. He is a sweet boy and very affectionate. He needs a home with room to run. He is energetic and would need an adopter who can embrace it. He will make THE BEST hiking buddy ever. He likes water to. He would be best in a home where he can be the only dog. If he can't be an only dog he needs a home with a large breed submissive female. He would also do well with puppies. He is doing well with crate training and house training. He will go to his new home current on vaccines, testing, preventives, neutered and microchipped. He will receive a complete physical by our vet prior to going home. He will also be issued a certificate of Health. The adopter will get all the health records with adoption. We require a pre screen application to adopt.
