Django is a wonderful 3 year old friend. He can be very shy and timid at times, but with some encouragement, his confidence shines through! He is great with cats, dogs, and babies but seems to get uncomfortable around toddlers. He loves cuddles, playing fetch, and to keep you close company all day❤️

Story
Fif is a good dog! I've taken very good care of him. But I'm 62 years old and I didn't know much about his breed, he's too much dog for me at my age and the expenses of keeping him has become a strain on me and my family. He's had puppy training but I couldn't afford to continue to next level training. He's never been aggressive but I can't really socialize him because most people are afraid of him from sight. I love Fif this is hard for me but I want him to be happy and I feel I can't do that he needs a more active home.

Story
Piper was a stray that I rescued. She is very anxious and takes some time to warm up to people, especially strangers and men. Once she trusts you though, she is the most loyal and loving girl. She gets along well with dogs larger than her, but not small dogs. Due to her anxiety and ability to be startled easily, she would not do well around kids. She is super food motivated, making her easy to train. She would do best in a calm household, ideally with a yard she can run around in.

Buddy is so very special To me!!! He’s such a good boy and has been my buddy for 8 years. I have a newborn and I will have to move back north with family. Unfortunately , I’m having difficulty finding a home that allows pitties. It’s really limiting me. Hes very good with my newborn and LOVESSS people!! As he has gotten older he doesn’t do great with all dogs anymore. He seems to be good with cats as he stays at his dog sitters who has 3 cats! I just want him to have the love and attention he needs as I feel I can’t give him the same attention the a newborn. Would even be willing to do o just 6 months -1 year commitment as I adjust with newborn!

River

American Staffordshire Terrier

Male, Young
Wake Forest, NC
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
Spayed or Neutered,
Story
River is a smart, housebroken, crate trained, and food motivated approx one year old mix.. His foster home has been working on leash skills and he already knows several basic commands. He would do fantastic with a single young adult or child-free couple who have some experience with dogs already and can continue to build on the foundation they have been working on. He is young and has a lot to learn. River’s ideal home has: A dog his size that will play with him and help him learn doggy social skills, his foster home only has small old pups and he wants them to play so badly. A fenced in yard for zoomies and games of fetch (Eventually he might even learn to bring the ball back!) He’s never attempted to escape the yard but a 6’ tall fence is recommended so he’s never tempted. He can leap clear over the couch… Maybe agility training is in his future! No small kids - he is fostered with several kids, as young as 4 years old, but is very much a puppy at heart does not seem to realize his own size and strength and can still be a bit unpredictable. Lots of durable toys like Kongs and Benebones available. He LOVES to chew on toys but does a really good job only chewing what he’s allowed too. Stuffed animals with squeakers are a blast for him - albeit very short lived!

Story
This guy. He's been through the MOST. He was dragged out of his yard by another dog in a violent fashion, barely making it out alive. Taken to urgent care, he was handed over to animal control after his treatment. He was fighting for his life. Because of what he looked like, no other rescue wanted this guy, but we couldn't let him die after he just fought so hard to live! Luckily, a very knowledgable foster home said she would take him til he healed and work on his medical needs. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and HW-. He is an amazing soul and good boy. We hope you will consider him if your dog needs a dog - he really wants to play with other dogs! Another dog can also be a mentor to him and show him that the world isn't so scary, that there are good people in it! Older kids are fine in a home for Stanley.

Usagi

American Staffordshire Terrier American Bulldog

Female, 7 yrs
Durham, NC
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Spayed or Neutered,
Story
With her foster family, Usagi is an extremely affectionate little hunk of love. A master of snuggles, she will happily either lie on top of her humans, sprawl out next to them, curl up in the curve of their legs, or smoosh in-between them; big spoon, little spoon--she loves it all. One of her most favorite activities is belly rubs. She will flop onto her back, with paws dangling, and extort all the belly rubs she can. She loves her toys and all food. Usagi loves to chase a ball, and can run faster and jump higher/farther than most, which would make her great for any type of agility games and training. She occasionally gets the most adorable zoomies and will race in circles, grab a toy, and buck like a little bronco. She is sooooo endearing and provides endless entertainment. Usagi is very smart and eager to please. She has learned Sit, Down, Stay, Up, Roll over, Spin, Lay on your side, Go to your mat, Wait/Hold (for food or when doors open), Leave it, Come, Kennel up (Go to crate), and a few others! Here's one of the tricks she now knows: She can lie down, with treats lined up on her legs and muzzle, and then, when given the "Okay" cue, she will gobble them up! Usagi generally walks beautifully on a leash. She is a quick study and would likely be happy to learn any trick requested. These are just some examples of Usagi's amazing qualities and lovable personality. She is, however, very fearful of new things including dogs and people. She has made progress, but in her forever home Usagi will need a patient pet parent/family who will continue to work with her slowly while she builds confidence. Usagi will need to be the only animal in her new home. Her very rambunctious playstyle and bullish affection would also likely overwhelm small children. Usagi is getting braver but still needs very slow introductions to new humans. So, she would not do well in a house with lots of visitors or with people who travel a lot. Usagi completely melts her foster humans with her sweet, affectionate gaze, the press of one of her meaty little paws, or the smooshing of her blocky head against their cheeks. She will bring boundless love, affection, and laughs to her forever home, and needs loving, caring people to help her feel safe. PHYSICAL Usagi is an adorable stocky little mix--mostly white, with large brown patches and some small, dark polka dots. She is short and muscular with adorable chunky paws. Usagi has stunningly gorgeous blue and gold eyes, and a mottled pink and brown nose.

Hardy is a lover of his person. He was pulled from a kill shelter in North Carolina and by the third day he had already formed an attachment to "mom". He was underweight when pulled from the shelter so we are working to help him gain wait. He has started learning sit and down and has almost mastered these commands. He is dog selective and walks very well on a leash. Please email nchappytailssanctuary@gmail.com for more information. We do require an adoption application, however we are a non judgmental rescue.

Story
Loki is a great dog and I have been so torn with the decision to rehome him but it may be what's best for him. I am moving up north where there are more size restrictions on pets when looking for housing. I also got him with my partner at the time and she sadly passed away and I got left with all the animals we shared. We welcomed him into our home when he was 10 weeks old from the SPCA. & is now just over 2 years old. He loves to play and is a medium to higher-energy type of dog. He is a smart dog and sometimes goofy. He knows to sit, down, stay, spin, paw/shake, etc. He is very food-motivated. he stays in the crate when I am at work and doesn't bark when I get home. He sometimes thinks he's the neighborhood watch and may bark 1 or 2 times to alert you he heard a noise. he can be calmed with nature sounds. Loki would be great in a home with a yard or someone who wants a workout buddy for runs or likes to take longer walks. He sometimes chases my cat so be cautious if you have one.
