Story
Figgy aka Figs is a calm, laid back boy who is content with sitting in your lap, laying in bed with you, laying beside you...in other words, being your best friend! He prefers to have you in his sight at all times. Figs is on a strict diet of prescription food (he's a little too fluffy) and his snacks are green beans and English peas. His ideal home would include a fenced in yard where he can meander around the yard at his leisure. The only time he gets in a hurry is when it's mealtime. He loves to bark at squirrels, leaves falling off the trees, bugs, just anything that catches his attention. An apartment would not be ideal for him since he can be quite vocal If you would like to add Figgy to your family, please go to goofyfootrescue.org and fill out an application.

Story
Romeo and Juliet were both street dogs, traveling everywhere together, looking for food and love. They were finally picked up by animal control in Georgia where they remained on a stray hold until they could be released. Animal control soon realized that Juliet was pregnant by Romeo so they called us to see if we could get them out of there before she gave birth. We had them immediately transported here to Tennessee and two weeks later she gave birth to 7 puppies. Sadly one was stillborn but the remaining 6 are all healthy happy babies who have all been adopted. Now it's Juliet's turn. She is crate trained, fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed and heart worm negative. Juliet is very high energy but extremely lovable. She is excellent with my 3 year old granddaughter and as you can see in the photo, fine with cats. Wouldn't you love to give her a loving and forever home! PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE LOCATED IN TENNESSEE AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MEET OUR PETS PRIOR TO ADOPTION ADOPTION FEE $700

Story
Meet Missy Moo!!  This sweetheart is a Shih Tzu mixed with a Wiry Terrier and she just turned a year old.  She gets her slightly larger size from the Terrier side, as she tops out just under 35lbs.  Missy came from a home with many other dogs where she had to compete for affection and resources.  She is slowly learning to sit and wait and be patient for her food and water and to trust that these nourishing things will not disappear.  Missy is currently in training as she came into rescue not housebroken, did not know how to walk on a leash and had no manners.  Good news is, she is extremely intelligent and picks up new commands very quickly! Sh e has made huge strides with housebreaking and knows Sit, Place, Come, Wait, Touch and Down in just a short time. Missy is not housebroken yet but with patience and guidance we feel she will slowly master this important house manner.  In the meantime perhaps a diaper could bridge the gap till she gets the hang of it. The possibilities for this girl are endless through structured, positive reinforcement training.  Missy will snuggle up to you, with her eyes closed shut.  It breaks your heart to think of just happy she is now to have this safe and attentive foster home to pay attention to her emotional and physical needs.  She loves to go outside and play ball, running like the wind!  A playful nature and young antics that make you happy to see her enjoying life.  If you ever wanted to do flyball with a dog, Missy is your girl!  Missy loves to play with other dogs and gets along with everyone though she can be a bit annoying for low key pups.  She is not aggressive with cats but is overbearing and doesn’t understand why they don’t play like a dog so our recommendation is no cats or other small animals.  Due to being a medium-high energy pup we are looking for an active family with no small children. *We are requiring Missy’s new home to have a fenced in yard.*   Please email us at ccrnewengland@gmail.com PLEASE NOTE:   Our dogs and cats are fostered in Tennessee and can transport weekly up to the Northeast region.  Request an application and learn more about Critter Cavalry at https://www.crittercavalry.com/adoption.February 29, 2024, 8:59 am

Story
Greetings, future family! I'm Bronson, and despite the tough-sounding name, I promise there's nothing intimidating about me. Life threw me a curveball, and I ended up at the shelter, innocent and bewildered. Let me share a little snippet of who I am. I'm a people-loving, dog-friendly, and cat-approving kind of canine. Everyone who crosses my path can't help but notice the sweet soul that resides within me. Change has been a constant companion lately, so I appreciate a gentle approach to introductions. Be patient with me, and you'll uncover a dog filled with warmth and affection. In my foster home, I've discovered the joys of romping around the backyard with my two furry foster brothers. Playtime is a blast, but when fatigue sets in, you'll likely find me cozied up on the couch next to my foster mom. It's the perfect spot for some well-deserved rest. Above all, my absolute favorite thing in the world is soaking up love and attention from people like you. If you sense a connection and think I could be the missing piece in your family puzzle, don't hesitate to submit an application. I can't wait to bring joy, companionship, and a whole lot of love into your life!

I have more videos on the rescue website! My name is Pepper. I weigh 7 lbs. (2/16). I am one in a litter of three. We were born around November 15. We are fostered in Mount Airy, North Carolina but easy, affordable transportation is available. Our mom weighed 7 pounds and our dad weighed 10 pounds. They were both family pets with great dispositions. We all have long bodies and short legs. We are not considered hypoallergenic or non-shedding since we are mixed breed puppies. We are well socialized and very loving. We love being held and petted, and we always greet our foster mom at the door with wagging tails and lots of kisses. We love to play with toys and with each other. We do like to chew on fingers and toes so we definitely need some training in this area. We have a medium energy level. We are working on house training. We sleep in a crate every night and we have learned not to potty in our crate. As soon as our crate door is opened every morning we run straight to the door to go outside and potty. We are good with the other dogs and love to play with them. I am the boldest of the three and the first to try anything new. I love to snooze in my foster’s lap! We provide hours of entertainment to our foster mom just watching us play. We are pretty typical puppies - we eat, sleep, play, and then start all over again. We have so much love to give and we are ready to go to our new forever homes! We will not be adopted in to homes with small children because we are so small. We are up-to-date on our puppy shots and we have been dewormed. We have already had a check up by the veterinarian. Our records will accompany us to our new homes. Email is the best method of contact . Adoption applications can be found on our rescue website Carolinacaninerescuenc.com
