Big Buddy

Buddy was spared from euthanasia in a Georgia animal shelter by a New Years Eve miracle, cobbled together by volunteers from several rescues who saw the hidden gem in the blind, senior dog with urine soaked, matted fur. Once he was rescued and cleaned up, Buddy quickly proved us right.

Buddy is a sweet, loving, easy going gentleman, probably about 8 years old. He has little or no usable sight, but this doesn't seem to bother him. He adjusted easily to his foster home; he quickly established familiar routes around the house and yard. He gratefully accepts any kindnesses and creature comforts offered to him: scritches and hugs, soft beds, meals and treats, dog bones to chew on.

Buddy had to be shaved because his fur was so badly matted. When his fur grows back, he should be a handsome black dog with tan and white markings. In the meantime, he is content to wear a sweater to keep him warm.

Buddy has perfect house manners. He has had no accidents. He does not chew or do anything else destructive. He is very interested in food, but he does not get into the garbage or counter surf. He gets along with the other dogs and ignores the cats.
There has been no opportunity to assess Buddy's behavior with children. He is currently being treated for heartworm and will be available when this treatment is complete.

Buddy is being fostered in Georgia.

Gracey - PENDING

Can you believe this beauty was a stray?   Gracey is an approx 8 yr old red merle female.  Gracey needs to lose about 20lbs!  She's a sweet girl who just needs a diet and exercise. 

She's good with other dogs but can get a little grumbly with youngsters that won’t stay out of her face.  She is house trained.   We haven't had her spayed yet as we'd like her to lose a little weight.  That can be taken care by us when she’s able to have it done.

If you feel you have the time and patience to help Gracey become the girl (size) she should be and reap the rewards of a loving companion, please complete an application.

Gracey is located in Navarre, FL (the Panhandle) but we can get her closer if need be.

Apply here for her.  NS2435

This cute black tri came in as a stray so we don't know his exact age. However, his behavior is that of a dog from 9-15 months old...pure puppy! Julian is a smaller dog, around 30 pounds.

He loves to play with toys, bones and especially tug-of-war.  A very busy and active pup, Julian will thrive with someone who is willing to take him running, spend time with a ball or Frisbee and especially attend obedience classes and maybe even agility. 
He's a bit mouthy just  now and we are working on that. Because he's very bouncy and affectionate, he should probably be with older children.

Julian will be available after October 10.  He is currently fostered in Johnston, SC.

Apply here for him.  NS2636

Lil Iris will melt your heart!  She is a seriously cute, 10 week old, red merle mini-Aussie who weighs in at all of 5.5 pounds.  She has very limited sight, just 10% in one eye and totally blind in the other, but that has not stopped her from playing with her dog pals, mastering crate training and housebreaking, and just loving life. 

Stay tuned for updates!  Lil Iris is fostered in Cary, NC.  NSXXXX

Flossie was rescued from a humane society In poor health. She has bounced back rapidly with love and a place to call home. Flossie is a Velcro dog that LOVES affection.  She is approximately a 10 year old black female. Although her sight may be impaired due to age it does not deter her from seeking attention. The hips do have some arthritis, but it does not limit her from joining her foster brothers and family up 13 stairs for bedtime at night.  She is wonderful with her foster brothers ( toy , mini and standard Aussies).   She is docile and sweet.  This dog has the sweetest eyes and most adorable face you have ever seen. She loves to go on car rides and loves to partake in all activities that her foster brothers do.
Flossie is house trained. She has low energy and loves to lay on her orthopedic bed with her brothers. She has not expressed any interest in our cat. She also loves the attention of the neighborhood children who come often to visit her. She has never exhibited any negative behaviors while in my care. 

She does have some arthritis but otherwise is as active as a senior dog can be.
Flossie is fostered in Harrisburg, SC.                Apply here for her.  NS2614
