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.

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.

This impish 19 month old puppy is a carnival in a package. His silly enthusiasms for everything will have you laughing all the time.  He loves to chase balls, chase dogs or better yet, be chased by them, play with stuffies and chew on bones. Always a party boy at heart, if he can't get the resident dog to play, he may steal your shoe, just to get you to chase him.

This 35 pound active pup will thrive with a fenced yard and someone to play with...another dog, an older child to throw a ball, or you to introduce him to agility, flyball, or just running in the neighborhood. Julian hasn't met a person he doesn't like.
He's still a little mouthy and jumps up a bit so toddlers are not recommended. Dog savvy kids will find him a delightful companion.  Husky on the outside, he is all aussie on the inside, medium Velcro, attached to his person and a never met a stranger. Rounds up all the toys, and hip slams the resident dog to get a game going.  Rides well in cars, housebroken, crates well, can be a barker when trying to get his buddy to play, he is also quite a talker with a full range of tones.  Julian is ready to bring love and excitement into some lucky person's home. 

He is currently fostered in Johnston, SC.

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

Racie is a beautiful 5 yr old blue merle female with lots of energy!  She is learning to walk on a leash, is house trained and reliable.  We are told she is good with children, we have not tested her on them.

Racie has been fine with other dogs however she was placed in a home with a female aussie that she did NOT get along with.  We are thinking a nice submissive male might be ok.  She did well with the cats and chickens after being initially told to leave them along so she’ll need that info reinforced.  Racie needs a leader so a home familiar with dogs and pack understanding would be best. 

Racie is a wonderful girl, a delight to have around. 

Racie is fostered in Naples, FL at this time.
