Story
We adopted honey about seven months ago. She is fully house trained, does not require a crate when left alone, knows sit/shake/down, and is good with my kids (6 and 9). Her favorite things are playing fetch and laying on the couch with her people. She is good with other dogs. Our reason for rehoming. We have a cat, and while honey has never hurt her in any way- she does chase her. This has resulted in my cat having some anxiety induced health issues despite trying for seven months to work through them.

Story
Meet one of the most gentle, sweetest souls we’ve ever met...Duke! Duke actually found himself dumped and fending for himself in Rock Hill, SC. Being scared and confused, he avoided people and no one seemed to care. Luckily for Duke, his guardian angel spotted him and made it her goal to befriend him, catch him and get him to safety. Lauren befriended him by regularly showing up where he was hanging out to feed him. Over time she earned his trust and was able to catch him. What a selfless act of dedication and love by Lauren! He found his way to us and has been doing great, learning that he is safe and loved and can actually trust all humans He is a very smart, funny, goofy boy and truly has the sweetest disposition. Duke is a 1 year old, lab/hound mix, about 65 pounds, fully vetted, crate trained, housebroken, walks great on a leash and loves other dogs! He is gentle and loving and would do great in a family with older kids. He is still a bit shy but comes around quickly. We are requiring a fenced yard for him as he loves to run and play. Another dog also required in the home as he is learning so much from his dog buddies. If interested in possibly meeting him, please go to the below link to fill out an application. We just like to know a little about you prior to a meet and greet. https://www.freedomfarmrescue.com/adoption-process-and-application

My name is Charlie... My life began at Randolph county animal shelter. You see Tails of the Unwanted pulled me after being dumped there by my previous owner. I was scared of all things especially the human touch. My foster mom says I've come a long long way in a year. I'll need to have someone that's patient with me and will give me room. You must have another dog... I love them so much and I get confidence and comfort from them. I'm neutered and microchipped. I have all vaccines including my rabies vaccine. I have been heartworm tested and tested negative. I must have a fenced in yard. No electronic fence. I walk great on the leash. If you think I could be the one for you or if you're up for a challenge please apply at www.tailsoftheunwanted.org Love Charlie&#226&#157&#164&#239&#184&#143June 18, 2024, 11:19 am

Story
Meet Deacon, he is a lab mix with a great personality… uh, dog-anality.  He is house trained, crate trained and leash trained.  Deacon can be a jumper and loves to run in his yard, so a 5 ft fenced in yard is a must for this boy.  If you want to see pure joy, watch him when he is playing with toys or gets the zoomies. It goes to a whole new level if the toy has a squeaker, those are his absolute favorite.  He does not like taking a bath, having someone hold his feet, or getting his nails cut.  He's your typical guys guy - not metrosexual at all.  Who needs all that floofy stuff anyway? Deacon is going to do best if he is the only animal or in a home with a non bossy or non grouchy female dog that is spayed.   He is not a fan of all small dogs that are bossy, he likes female non bossy small dogs and some kids, he may chase cats, but he likes them and just wants to play. Deacon may be too high energy for larger dogs.  Deacon was bounced around a bit before he went to his foster home, due to that he can be slow to warm up, but once you are his person - he desires nothing more than to be by your side… and have squeaky toys.  Did I mention he loves squeaky toys? Deacon is still figuring out the world and will need someone who will be patient with him… he can't just be thrown into new situations and expect to thrive.  A good example, is those spooky moving doors at PetSmart.  He doesn't understand them and we'll be honest, they freak him out a little, he is getting better- but he's learning.  Deacon has recently completed 2 weeks of board and train.  Note: The training he received comes with lifetime training touch ups. Once he has settled in, the trainer will provide you with training sessions to help acclimate him to his new home , they also provide group training sessions most Saturdays at local parks.  Deacon weighs approximately 45 lbs and has been neutered and microchiped.  If you think Deacon would make a good addition to your family, fill out an application at lastdaydogs.comJune 18, 2024, 11:19 am

Story
Hi everyone! My name is Alex and I am in immediate need of a foster or adopter.  My current foster family has been very good to me for the last 10 months and we had a long talk - but they have some stuff they need to deal with and I think it would be better if I found somewhere else to stay.  I know they love me and I will be forever grateful to them for what they’ve done to help me.  I’d love someone else to step up.  Is it you? Some of you may know me as " Alex The Great" of Greensboro. Being the loal celebrity that I am, you can view my FOX 8 interviews on the Tails of the Unwanted FB page! Well, that was my former life. Let me give you a bit of my history. Just a few, short months ago, I was living on the streets of Greensboro with my former owner. We were homeless. Needless to say, food was scarce, and I became very thin. Some concerned citizens contacted Animal Services about my plight. After some time, my owner surrendered me so that I could get the nutrition and care that I so badly needed. After a month in Guilford County Animal Services, I was nursed back to a healthy weight. They then transferred me into foster care where, over the past 10 months, I have been working on my inside manners, polite behavior, leash walking, and commands. This is what my foster parents have to say!!!! Alex is a very good boy! He is super sweet, not to mention handsome, and loves to get belly rubs and give kisses! He is a great swimmer and would love his new parents to take him to the lake or pool for a dip! He enjoys a nice, long walk and is good on a leash. If he catches a scent, he's on it, but it is corrected very easily. Although he is still learning his inside manners, he would love to cuddle on the couch with you, but he does great just chillin in his crate as well. (He has actually made his crate his safe place). We have found it difficult to get him out at times because Alex loves to play hard, and when his day is done, he's DONE! He is a 6-year-old healthy boy weighing approximately 50 lb. He is heartworm negative and up-to-date on all of his vaccinations. Alex would do best in a home where he has a lot of human contact and love. He can be anxious when separated from his people, which is not surprising due to him being with his past owner 24/7. He is currently on a low dose of anxiety medication, which is a far cry from where he was 6 months ago. He has settled in and has relaxed tremendously. He will need his humans to have patience for a while as he adjusts to his new surroundings. We believe that his new family will find that once Alex knows he's in a safe, loving place, he will relax and be the BESTEST boy for you! Alex would do best with older children as he is still very eager at meal time and treat time and is still learning his socialization skills but is good with other dogs in low-key settings. We are unsure about cats. Overall, Alex is a sweet, loving, affectionate boy who is eagerly waiting to meet his forever family! If you want to be a part of Alex's story and provide him his forever home, please complete an adoption application at lastdaydogs.comJune 18, 2024, 11:19 am

Story
Duke: A Heart of Gold Awaiting Your Love Introducing Duke, a three-year-old chocolate lab mix with a smile that lights up the room, on a heartfelt quest for a forever home where he can share his abundant love. Duke’s journey hasn’t been easy; he’s a survivor of neglect, which makes him a little reserved at first. Yet, with a touch of kindness and a dash of patience, he reveals his true, affectionate self. Duke has faced challenges, including separation anxiety due to his past. He seeks a family that understands his needs, possibly including medication during his initial transition period. Consistent companionship and gentle reassurance are the keys to helping Duke feel safe and loved. He’s not fond of crates, so a secure, comfortable crate is essential for those moments when you need to step out. As an escape artist, Duke reminds us to keep our homes secure, with double-locked doors and gates to ensure his safety. Duke cherishes his nap times, often found snuggled in his foster mom’s favorite chair, dreaming of happy days ahead. While he enjoys the company of other dogs, Duke flourishes as the sole pet, soaking up all the attention he deserves. His playful spirit comes alive with stick games, bringing out his adorable, ear-to-ear grin. The ideal companion for Duke would be an experienced adopter, preferably a woman who can provide the love, training, and security he needs to continue growing in confidence. Open your heart and home to Duke, and he will repay you with unwavering loyalty and endless cuddles. He’s not just looking for a home; he’s looking for someone to be his world. To embark on this beautiful journey with Duke, please fill out an adoption application at www.lastdaydogs.com. Let Duke show you the boundless joy a faithful friend can bring. &#226&#157&#164&#239&#184&#143June 18, 2024, 11:19 am
