ALL DOGS ON THIS PAGE ARE ARE READY FOR ADOPTION WITH A MODERATE ADOPTION FEE TO COVER EXPENSES (average of $350, sometimes higher, sometimes lower). Contact Heidi for more information. We sometimes have more that aren't listed here, so if you are looking for something specific let us know.
Some people see these adoption fees as high, when actually it is a deal. These dogs come to you fully vetted. The cost of adopting a rescue is far less than buying a puppy and then raising it to one year old. Keep in mind that the majority of these dogs are already housebroken or, at the very least, crate trained.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Rescuing dogs is something we love to do, but we can't continue without help. We are in need of donations of time, money and/or supplies. Here are a few ways you can help:
1. Donate either money or supplies (ie...dog food, blankets, cleaning supplies, etc...)
2. Donate your time. We need people to help care for, socialize, groom, and train these dogs.
3. Foster a dog. These dogs need lots of TLC and one on one time with people. Contact us for a foster application if you are interested.
4. Adopt a dog! They are in need of loving forever homes. If you can open your heart to a rescue, they will give back 2 fold.
For more info on how you can help, call us at 704-843-0944 or email us.
I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY. Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life.
She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.
A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
I rescued a human today. -AUTHOR UNKNOWN
Won't you let one of these animals rescue you?

"ABBY", SENIOR GWP
NO CATS, SMALL DOGS, or SMALL CHILDREN
Abby's history of neglect is long. She is 11 yrs old, but still full of life and very healthy. Abby can be a bit grumpy when scared or cornered. She gets over it quickly as long as she isn't pushed, then returns to her loveable sweet self. For this reason we think she would be best in an adult only home. She gets along with other dogs as long as they don't try to dominate her or annoy her relentlessly. She is not good with cats. She may be old, but we think she will still make a fantastic bird dog. She has high prey drive and her sister is still an excellent hunter. Please contact us with questions or for an application.
Issa came from a loving family that hated to give her up. Unfortunately, she is very unpredictable with other dogs, and despite training to try and fix the problem, she has torn up the other family dogs one too many times. Issa is as sweet as can be with all people and is actually quite outgoing and friendly. She is in need of grooming, which I am unable to do until I recover from surgery, but is undergoing training for leash manners with my help currently, as she likes to pull. She has good house manners and is house broken. She would probably make someone a fantastic hunting dog with just a little training. Please contact us with questions or for an application.
"ISSA"(pronounced EESA), 5 yr old spayed female German Drahthaar (GWP)
NO OTHER PETS! Very dog aggressive
"JAKE", 3 YR OLD Neutered male GWP
NO OTHER PETS or SMALL CHILDREN
Jake is a very sweet boy, but has had some minor resource guarding in the past, so we don't want to home him with young children. He has been in training here at the kennel and we have not seen an issue. He did have a lot of holes in his training when he arrived, so the problem may be fixed. He has been started on birds, but still needs a lot of training to be a finished bird dog. He is very unpredictable with other dogs, so must go to a home that doesn't have other pets. If you feel Jake would be a good addition to your family, please contact us with questions or for an application.
