Story
Craving a cuddly canine companion that likes to give kisses and go for long walks?  If so, Miss Pattie may be the girl for you.  This voluptuous girl is a perfect blend of chill and playful.  She is estimated to be around 8 years old but her personality and actions are more like she is around 3 to 5.  Her eyes say it all, 'I am sweet and lovable '. House/crate trained, knows some commands and takes treats VERY gently are some very desirable qualities Patti has to offer.  Her perfect home would be one where she is a house dog with a family that makes her a part of their pack and involved with their activities.  She is not a fan of being outside alone for very long, she prefers to be in the house where her people are.   She has done well with the other dogs in the household tho she can have some food issues when eating a meal and if another pet tried to take her food. But, there has only been noise.  Because of that we feed her separately.  But, has had no issues with treats or toys.  Since being rescued by TOTU in July she has been treated for heartworms, spayed and is now ready for her forever home.  Could it be yours?

Story
Sassy is approximately a 7 year old pitbull mix weighing about 60lbs. She is fully vaccinated and now looking for her forever family.  Despite some of her scars (a wonky ear), which tells a tale of survival, her spirits remain unbroken. She’s your typical pitty with so much love to give. She only gets sweeter by the day. She was found as a stray and has since been with her foster mom being completely spoiled, enjoying daily adventures in Charlotte, NC.  Sassy is such a love and truly is just happy being by your side. She loves a dog bed and settles quickly. She is easily entertained with bully sticks, benebones, and toys. She loves to sunbathe in the backyard and lay where ever the sun hits and will gladly accept a belly rub while doing so. She is crate trained, house trained, and sleeps quietly in the crate any time needed. She rides well in the car in a car kennel. She has a goofy personality with lots of silly behavior that will keep you laughing all day. She loves meal times and will come in from outside doing her “bunny hops”. Look out for her classic “sassy” lip smack. She is very gentle when taking treats and knows “Sit”like the back of her paw. She’s doing well with bath time and grooming. She loves going for car rides and taking walks to sniff all the new smells. Car rides and walks are definitely high on her list of favorite things (besides snacks). She is working with her foster mom, who is a dog trainer, on her loose-leash walk using a Herm Sprenger Prong Collar. Having a strong handler familiar with the breed to hold her accountable is recommended. She is also working on other commands like place, here, heel and wait. She does well passing other dogs. Sassy has high prey drive for small critters so she would do best in a home with no cats and at least a 6 foot fence. She’s done well with the other 2 year old female dog in the house. She can become over stimulated at first and likes to sniff intently but is easily redirected and will nicely coexist with some management. No barrier aggression while in a crate. She would likely do best with another neutral dog, medium sized or bigger, who doesn’t become over stimulated. Or fine as an only dog, so she can have all the attention!  While Sassy hasn’t spent much 1 on 1 time with kids, her friendly nature suggests she would be good with them. She has done well passing play grounds and athletic fields.  Sassy will come with 25% off any continued training for her that is signed up for with her foster mom.

Story
Suki is a 40lb ball of love!   She loves to cuddle up next to you and when she does, she looks up at you and always looks like she is smiling and just happy to be next to you.  Although she loves being where you are, she is high energy. Suki is currently fostered in a working family home, so she is accustomed to being alone at home for approximately 8-10 hours a day, Monday through Friday with no indoor potty or destructive issues.  That being said, she will be so excited when you come home, and she will be a bit jumpy.  But get her outside to potty and let her run around a little bit and she settles down nicely. Suki loves to get out in the yard and run around and just play.  She hasn’t quite mastered fetch. If you throw the ball she will chase after it because she loves to run but bringing it back, well that’s another story, LOL! As mentioned, Suki loves to run, so, leash training will need to continue with her new fur parents until she realizes you are not just going to let her just run and that she needs to heed to the leash. Suki free feeds, meaning that food is waiting in a bowl for her to graze on whenever she gets hungry.  She is good with other dogs.   There are three other fur babies in the home and have not experienced any aggressive issues with her towards any of them.  There are no children or cats in the home so we don't know how she would be with them but given her sweet nature, we cannot imagine there would be any issues. If you are looking for a companion that loves you, just wants to be next to you and is just happy to be wherever you are, please consider Suki. She has so much love in her little 40lb body to give to the lucky person/people that adopt her.   If you are interested in Suki, please complete an adoption application at lastdaydogs.com  June 6, 2024, 12:43 pm

Story
Meet Perl, a loving and friendly pitbull girl ready to play and cuddle. Perl is house trained and generally well behaved as a mature dog yet still as playful, energetic, and inquisitive as a puppy. She is completely deaf but understands hand signs and body language well and appears to have been trained by a previous owner. Perl would do best in a home with no cats and a fenced yard or with an owner that would be willing to exercise with her on a leash. She is excellent with other dogs and would likely appreciate a sister or brother. She currently has some separation anxiety but is improving quickly. Perl is very entertaining and knows no bounds when it comes to snuggles. Come meet your loyal and devoted Perl!   If you are interested in this special girl, please complete an adoption application at lastdaydogs.comJune 6, 2024, 12:43 pm

Story
Meet Brantley! Quick Facts: Breed: Pitbull X Estimated Birthday: 1/1/2016 Size: 49 lbs Brantley hasn’t had the easiest life. He was a shelter dog at a young age who had a bad respiratory infection and heartworms. With the odds stacked against him already as a black Pitbull in a shelter, throw in some medical issues, and he was the perfect addition to our rescue crew. Healed from infection + treated for heartworms, Brantley found what seemed to be his forever home. But Brantley's family grew over the years, and unfortunately, Brantley found himself on the backburner, and once again subjected to being dropped off at the shelter. Luckily, the shelter reached out to us, and we quickly picked Brantley up - though he is now filled with confusion and on medication to help relieve his anxiety. On a happier note, Brantley is still a great companion and we have faith we can find a true forever home for him. He likes to go on walks, showing off his zoomies outside, and playing fetch.. but it's more fetch for you, because Brantley doesn't believe in the vital part of the game that includes actually bringing the ball back. His absolute favorite game is hanging out with his humans - he's a fantastic nap buddy, always advocating for the cause, and would appreciate a fluffed pillow and a blanket. This boy loves a good car ride, as long as you promise snacks for the goodest boi (him, duh). Brantley is dog selective so would do best in a home by himself or with calm, submissive dogs the same size or smaller than him with proper introductions. He does get a little greedy with toys and bones, so Brantley's goodies - like peanut butter filled kongs - are only included in his "me-time" crate training currently. He’s never met a cat that we know of. He has lived with kids and does fine after proper introduction but does not enjoy being crawled on or pulled on, so older kids would be preferred. He does have crate anxiety which we are actively working on. He can go short stints in a crate but then feels like his people have left him all over again. He’s currently doing better in an indestructible crate, but actually is (mostly) reliable outside of the crate when you're not home. If you are looking for a best friend who loves to go on car rides, walks, play ball, and nap peacefully while you're catching up on the latest Yellowstone episode, Brantley is your guy. Before emailing- please read: - Yes, this dog is available for adoption - The adoption fee for Brantley is $265 - 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!

Story
Boys just want to play, play, play. I am a 3 month old male boxer mix. I was a stray and ended up at the shelter. I am a big love bug and want to be with my human. I am loving playing with other dogs but they often do not like to me in their space. When that happens I go about my business. I want to please the humans and will be a quick learner when it comes to manners. I am going to need a fenced in yard to play around in. I would like to have a canine friend but if my human is active and wants to play I will be okay. Because I am young, I will need to work on training including housebreaking. I am doing well in a crate when I need to be but again I want to be next to my human. I am learning to play with toys and liking the toys. I am hoping I will find someone that will love me and play with me. I will need a lot os pets and treats. If this is your home fill out an application and someone will be in touch with you.
