Story
To begin the adoption process, please fill out the SOTB Adoption Application completely. Once your application has been submitted, our Adoptions Team will be in contact shortly to set up a phone interview and a home visit. Captain Tail Blur!! Squiggy is a comical, ridiculous little dog who came to us after a dog fight bust. He's around 4 years of age and has been hanging out as a sort of sanctuary dog for a few years, but he's grown so much in that time that he'd do just fine in a home with people of his own. Squiggs is a little guy, maybe 40lbs, with goofy energy and the sweetest demeanor. He absolutely loves people and loves fun, and he's gotten so very close to making dog friends, but he's just too afraid of being attacked again and can't quite get there. It's such a shame what people call a sport, and this little guy had to pay the price of evil peoples' entertainment, he so deserved better.  So what's life with a former fighting dog like? Well, to be fair, he wasn't so much of a fighting dog as a target of other dogs. He's s little guy, and he's a happy guy, he visits with other dogs through barriers and play bows, he looks for all the world like a guy who is dying to play with other dogs, you'd never know by watching him what he's been through. Generally he's just a dog, he has no vices, he's super food motivated and loves to train. He'd absolutely adore finding a human who would trick train him and help him learn to binge watch Netflix. There's actually no management needed within the home, just crate and rotate if family comes with visiting dogs, he's totally fine with that life.  These guys are always hard to find a home for, not because they're anything other than a dog, but because media has scared people into thinking they're monsters. If you met Squiggy and someone called him a monster, you'd totally crack up, he's so not scary at all. Even with the cropped ears and black coat, he's just such a little goofball. Squiggy would love a fenced yard and a person to call his own. He'll follow you around the house and help you with all the things, then he'll flop down on his bed and chew his bones or hop up onto the sofa for a solid cuddle. He's a good little dog who deserves a human of his own, foster or adopter, either is fine. Ready to make a difference in the life of a dog who had a truly horrific start? Squiggy can't wait to hear from you! Visit southofthebully.com and fill out an application today.Our adoption fee is $300. This covers spay/neuter, microchip, microchip registration, all age appropriate vaccines, and any needed vet care. July 17, 2024, 12:02 pm

Story
Hi! I'm Juno! I was unfortunately left behind by my previous home owner. But I'm young and fun! I'm over four years old and I like to play and go on hikes! I'm a bit shy but once I warm up to you, I want all the love! I get a bit nervous on car rides but once we get to our destination I am ready to go. I don't like to be left alone all that much and sometimes have accidents on a puppy pad but with proper guidance I am sure I can get over that fear. I don’t know how I am with cats as I’ve never been around them, and when I'm at the dog park I tend to stay close by because I would like to walk with you instead but I do play with other dogs too, I love going on walks call my name and I will come! I also know how to sit and if you tell me to go lay down at my bed I will. I’m really a big softie! I hope to have a couch of my own, and would love to lay on your lap! Cuddles are simply the best. I would love a super loving home that can spoil me and let me run around and play.

Please help us rehome! We’ve been doing everything we can to find her a home. It’s been over 6 months we’ve been struggling to keep up with her we can hardly afford anything or give her time at all she spends most of her day caged because unsupervised she does like to find things to destroy . she is a 5 year old female Pitbull who is spayed and has her rabies UTD . Perfect for someone who has no other dogs we do not know if she can get along with other dogs. We rescued her from CMPD shelter before they were going to euthanatize her due to full capacity. She is house trained must be supervised and knows a couple tricks. A complete sweetheart and loves to cuddles.She is also crate trained . We do not have the time anymore we both work two jobs to make ends meet and she needs someone who can give her time and attention . We know in a better home she would thrive even more! Please consider this sweet girl!

Story
I fostered Pele from a rescue. She and my dog got along so well that I decided to adopt her for him! Unfortunately, there was an incident with one of my cats and I need to rehome her for the safety of my other cats. Pele loves humans and lives for attention. If you're looking for a pup who wants to be with you as much as she can, Pele is for you. Even though she only has 3 legs, she is still very active. She loves to go for walks and can go for shorter runs. She and her canine brother love to chase each other around the yard and wrestle together in the house. She also loves lying next to her human. She gets along with a lot of dogs but can be selective. Because of the incident with my cat, she should not be around cats. She loves children but she is a little awkward with just the one front leg so she should be watched around small children. She is up to date on her vaccines and has an appointment for her annual heartworm test and injection on March 4.

finley was found at latta nature preserve along with her sister and momma. we’ve made efforts to rehome them but unfortunately haven’t found the right match. finley is super sweet, friendly, but very submissive, but she is not skittish and has not shown any aggression. first thing finley does when meeting a new person is go belly up! finley is vet aged around 8 months and has her age appropriate vaccines including her rabies shot. with three other dogs and cats in the house we simply cannot keep balancing them all.

Story
Emma was rescued from our local shelter 3 years ago making her 6 years of age now. At first, she was very aloof but in about a month, she was part of our family. She is very attentive. We have a toddler and many breakables throughout the house and she is completely aware of her surroundings at all times. I cannot recall a single item that she has ever broken due to her negligence. She is delicate with everything around the house and knows what's hers to play with. And she is incredibly gentle with the baby. She is warm, attentive, loves to play, but is also a very calm and low key dog. She loves going on walks around the neighborhood and appreciates even more the trips to the local dog parks. She also travels well in the car. Road trips are no problem as long as she gets her breaks every couple of hours. And she is fully potty trained. She will let you know if she needs to go and will patiently wait for you if you are busy. Overall, she is a great companion and guard dog

Story
This not so little nugget is Yosemite Sam. Yosemite was adopted last season from Mama Lola's Looney Tunes litter.  Yosemite's about 10 months old now and is looking for a new forever family. Here's the basics: *We've had him in to our vet for a complete checkup.  *He's fully vetted, neutered and up to date on all vaccines.  *Our trainer has been out to visit and was impressed with the level of training that he's had already. Yosemite Sam is house trained, crate trained, and a dream on leash. He's a super smart very good boy who is attentive to his person and enjoys learning new things. He's been living in his current home since adoption and has done very well with general house & people manners. Yosemite's about 65ish pounds and has ears for DAYS! Though still technically a puppy, he's the best of both worlds. He's young, healthy, and loves to play, but he's done with the potty training, crate training, and most importantly - the teething. He lives with another dog and little human kiddos, and he would probably be happy just about anywhere. We think his dream home would include walks & a yard to play in, but the rest is negotiable! Yosemite Sam is a super duper good boy and he needs a family that will love him for the rest of his life.  To learn more or to submit an adoption application please visit our website https://www.pitsandgigglesrescue.org/adopt  ##1723063##

Mama Molasses aka "Mama Mo" is a lovely little lady who is looking for a family of her very own. Mo came to our rescue VERY pregnant. She had been picked up as a stray, suffering from a gunshot wound in the leg. Despite her rough start, Mama Mo LOOOOVES everyone she meets. And everyone who meets her - loooooves her right back! Her sweet, silly personality and gentle demeanor will win you over in a heartbeat! Mama Mo was a wonderfully attentive mother to her pups, and now that they're all adopted - she's ready for her own FUREVER! Mo is absolutely stunning, around 2 years old, and weighs in just under 50lbs. She is perfectly potty trained, great in the crate, and gets along well with other doggos. Mama Mo would fit in just about anywhere! So if you're in the market for a super sweet velcro pitty that loves snuggles, apply today! ##2003672##

Mama Lightning McQueen’s 11 pups have left the barking lot and she is now looking for her own forever family to cruise with! She is a cute 43 pounds ready to snuggle and play!   Mama MQueen is as friendly as can be. She is best friends with any human in the room, and loves all of her doggy friends (so much). She is around 2 years old, potty trained, crate trained, and has great manners! After a fun play session outside, she loves to come snuggle up with you. If you’re looking for a dog that will light up when you come home, do zoomies around your yard, and take naps on your lap while you watch Bridgerton, look no further. She is a true sweetheart of a dog that is going to make one lucky family very happy!!  ##2083418##

Breed: Boxer / American Bulldog? maybe? Size: Large; currently 70+ lbs Estimated Birthday: 3/2/2020 House-Trained: Yes ---------- Crate-Trained: Yes, and kennels on command! Kid-Friendly: Needs a home with kids over 12 years This sweet girl came to the rescue in need of bowel obstruction surgery after she thought a sock was a yummy snack. She made it through surgery and has been recovering nicely! Bella Vida is quite shy and a bit hesitant to open up to new people, so she is looking for a patient family that will give her time and let her know she is safe. Bella Vida is selective with her dog friends and may do better with male dogs. She is looking for a house with no small children and would thrive with an active family with older kids. Bella Vida loves to go on daily walks and will play fetch for hours! She will always follow up these play sessions with a cuddle session on the couch. She loves deconstructing stuffed toys and sometimes her bedding. We would recommend caution in allowing Bella Vida unsupervised access to toys due to her recent sock-eating debacle. Before emailing- please read: - Yes, this dog is available for adoption - The adoption fee for Bella Vida is $365 - Apply at c2cnd.org - The adoption fee covers their age appropriate shots, microchip, deworming, spay/neuter, and any other medical expenses while in our care. - Local adopters only. Due to our thorough adoption process including home visits, we limit our adoptions to local families in the greater Charlotte area. - If you have any additional questions, email us at dogs@c2cnd.org and we will respond as soon as possible!
