Story
Meet Ben, who will turned two in June. Ben came to us extremely emaciated, in pretty bad shape weighing only 39 lbs. ( he is now 85 lbs.) . His human had tried and tried to get him to gain weight, get healthy but with no success. We got him, had several tests run, noticed how fast he ate his food. We put him on a special ID diet, started using slow feeder bowls, and fed him small meals several times a day. After many many tests, much medication, and special food, he started to gain weight. He has now gotten adjusted to regular food. He may always need a bowl to slow down his eating but he looks great and is a happy boy. Ben is good with other dogs. He is a little dominant but does well with both male and female dogs. He did have a quick encounter with a cat, but not long enough to say 100 percent, but he did not do anything but sniff the kitty. We would recommend no small kids only because of Ben's size and we are still working on getting him not to jump up and hug you. While it looks sweet, he could knock someone down accidentally. If you think Ben may be your boy, please read on and fill out the on line application. RECOMMENDATIONS & PROCEDURES Please note, the following are recommendations for puppies and different breeds of dogs. We will evaluate each application on an individual basis to see what is best for the dog/puppy and the potential adopter. Puppies are very fragile and not toys. We recommend children be at least six years old to be considered to adopt a puppy. Small breed dogs ( such as chihuahuas, yorkies, shih tzus , etc) we recommend children be at least eight years old. Herding, working breeds we recommend children to be at least 12 years old. Again these are recommendations. Adoption Procedures: We will travel up to two hours ( one way) to do physical home visits and we do not do virtual home visits. ( we are in Cleveland County NC) Most of our dogs come from bad situations and we want to know where their forever home is going to be. While we do not require fencing on all dogs, certain dogs that need a fenced in yard, will not be adopted unless potential adopter has one. We also adopt some dogs to people who live in apartments ( as long as the landlord approves) but not all dogs. We do not adopt to anyone under 21 years of age. We also do not feel college students are the best fit for most of our dogs. Most of our dogs again, come from bad situations and need lots of attention. Most college students have financial responsibilities and we feel need to be focused on school. Our goal is to match the dog with a family that fits the dog’s needs. We are solely focused on what is best for each dog in our rescue. These dogs have had enough moving around, dumped out like trash, and we want to ensure they find their forever home. We do require you sign a contract and if at any time you cannot continue to provide for the dog, the dog comes back to the rescue. Your first step to adoption is filling our our on line application. You will then get an automated email stating we got your application Next our adoption coordinator will be in touch either by phone or email If your references check out, a home visit will be scheduled. After the home visit is done, a meet and greet with the dog you are interested in and/or any other available dogs we have will be scheduled If the dog and you are a match, contract will be signed and you may take your new family member home.

Very friendly, high energy, loves to run and needs fenced in yard. Not recommended for young children or elderly as he sometimes jumps up on people. Has never bitten anyone before. He was NOT from a breeder. He weighs almost 100lbs and still thinks he’s a lap dog. Need to re-home him due to a separation and incompatible work schedule

Story
Rex is an almost 2-year-old happy boy who is very playful (we are convinced he is extremely unaware of his size). He loves long walks, treats, and adores my kids wayyy too much. He is very gentle, especially with my 2-year-old, whom he allows to lay on him and use him as a pillow (lol). My son hugs and cuddles him all the time. We love Rex more than words can describe. He arrived when he was just 1 from a family that did not take very good care of him, and it breaks my heart to change his home once more. Unfortunately, shortly after he arrived, we were hit with financial troubles back to back. We have tried to use all kinds of resources we’ve found, but we are at the end of the line. Our situation does not allow us to give him the care and nutrition he deserves. We would love Rex to go to a loving owner or family that will treat him with kindness, love, and is able to care for him.
