Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Location: West Columbia, SC Name: Ginger Age: 5 or 6 years Breed: Coonhound, German Shepherd, Akita Mix - 68 lbs with long legs M/F: F Spayed/Neutered/Shots: Spayed; UTD on rabies & distemper Good with dogs, cats, and/or kids: good with everyone she has met so far; haven’t exposed her to cats but doubt it would be an issue Aggression or medical issues?: No aggression; heartworm positive upon arrival and has been through fast-kill. Is on monthly prevention and will need to be retested in a year to verify treatment work did what it was supposed to (extremely high success rate). Reason for rehoming?: owner did not keep her contained and eventually moved away. For 4 years, she walked miles every day for food/water on her daily rotation having back to back litters. It is not simply that the neighbors did not care, she just wasn’t used to being contained and they struggling catching her and keeping her contained. I have had no issues keeping her contained in my back yard, but I do have a hot wire lining my fence and I am nowhere near the area she was wandering for all that time. House/crate trained?: she has only come inside my house a handful of times honestly, she prefers to be a yard dog as that is what she is used to. She has had no accidents when indoors though. Does need a fenced in yard. Potentially additional measures as mentioned above but I have no way of knowing until she is in the new situation/environment to see how she reacts as she never even tried escaping at my house. Additional info/story (personality): She is beyond sweet. No, she isn’t a house dog, but she is a loving dog. Out of the many animal’s I have taken to my vet, she is in their top 2 list of favs out of my group. While she is a yard dog, she walks decently well on a leash (I’m ~125 lbs and the only thing that is difficult is getting her in my car as in she isn’t one to drag me all over). She has been around tons of dogs and people with me with absolutely no issues. Vet had her in perfect health besides the heartworm treatment that we have completed. She is definitely past her puppy days and prefers to lay around instead of playing with the other dogs, but this could also be due to the recent heartworm treatments. I definitely wouldn’t consider her as a guard dog as she is such a people pleaser (she rarely barks - assuming it was learned behavior as she was surviving “on her own” for so long). Please help give her the furever home she has always deserved! Message/comment if interested. Make sure if you message me to include the animal’s name since I have a lot of rescues I am trying to help rehome at the moment. Adoption application & contract required to ensure good home .

Needs special attention, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Age: 1 year Breed: Coonhound/German Shepherd/Mix - 55 lbs M/F: M Spayed/Neutered/Shots: UTD on rabies, bordetella & dhlpp, up to date on heartworm prevention, neutered Good with dogs, cats, and/or kids: all of the above but will most likely be a bit much to have direct access to small children unless ran before (very excitable) Aggression or medical issues?: was born with a deformed paw but the vet does not see it needing any future medical care although it will put him more prone to arthritis (easily managed with joint food or supplements at a younger age). This doesn’t affect his daily life or energy level in the slightest, he will only hold it up after a lot of playing as I’m sure it tires out quicker. No aggression but is barrier reactive (will act like he will eat you through a pen if he doesn't know you well but once let out turns into a complete sweetheart) House/crate trained?: yes to both Additional info/story (personality): He is extremely sweet with everyone and meets no stranger. He loves his outside time and playing. Would thrive best in a home with lots of attention or doggy friends to play with. Also a huge goofball. Does still jump when excited but is doing much better. Can pull quite hard on a leash as I don’t think he realizes his size. Was super gentle with the cats I introduced him to though. HIGH HIGH energy and loud bark due to breed mix. Message/comment if interested. Make sure if you message me to include the animal’s name since I have a lot of rescues I am trying to help rehome at the moment.

Pulls quite hard on a leash when scared or with a new human. Is a big baby and has no problem being held. Big personality, long, and lanky. Definitely a cuddle bug.

Story
I, my name is Charlie!I am going to be a year old on April 24th!I am a sweet and loving dog, and am very cuddly. Dad says I am a VERY strong dog and jump on people too much. I will need someone with training to help me to learn to not jump and not be too rough on things. I definitely need good, strong toys to play with!I work great with other dogs that have the same bright energy and spirit as me, but cats and I don't get along. Because I am strong, I probably shouldn't be around children under 10 since sometimes I am not aware of how big I am!I can be hyperactive but I am a very lovable dog! Though I do have some quirks like mouthing and jumping that needs some work, I am loyal through and through! I hope I can have a great big back yard and a great family to play with!From Charlie's foster family:He has had all his vaccinations and us crate trained and inside house trained. He is also trained on an outside lead. Last but not least, Charlie is a truly wonderful dog. Charlie is part of our Home to Home Program.

Hi everyone, my name is Ava and I am looking for a good forever home. My life has been a difficult start, I have had sweet foster families who love me but never a home to call my own forever.I love all people including children, and I love playing.I have had bad experiences with other dogs in my past and they make me really nervous. I would do best as an only dog. I have not been around cats. just want lots of land to run around and play on, to sunbathe and fetch a tennis ball. I want all the belly rubs and be warned, I will give you a million kisses. I am so excited for wherever my next home is, I just know it will be wonderful.From Ava's foster mom: She loves to be near you and play with you. A wonderful companion. She is smart and has already learned stay, sit, fetch, and heel (we say "walk"). Easy to walk on a leash and loves physical affection from people.Sweet Lady Ava is part of our Home-to-Home Program.
