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?
9 yr old spayed female GWP
Cotton is a darling girl who was given up because her owner no longer wanted to pay for her to go to doggie day care. She is very sad here in the kennel and we would like to get her in a home as soon as possible. Cotton is a sweet girl, who loves other dogs and people, but does seem a bit unsure of small children. If you feel like you can provide a permanent loving home for Cotton, please contact us for an application.
"BENTLEY", Purebred 3 yr old neutered male Yorkie
"BENTLEY" is a 3 yr old, neutered male Yorkie who has been passed through 3 homes already in his short life. He needs someone committed to training and loving him forever. He is very sweet, but high energy. He loves others dogs, needs room to run, and someone who will work his mind. He is smart and willing to please if you take the roll of pack leader. This is a special dog who has just been given a raw deal. If you feel Bentley would be a good fit for you, please contact us for an application.

"DANNI", 5 yr old spayed female GWP
"Danni" is an absolute sweetheart. She is housebroken and very well mannered. Danni was not raised with cats and has had some issues with other dogs, so would do best in an only pet home. She may be okay with male dogs, but we haven't had enough time to evaluate that yet. Danni is gun shy so will not be suitable for hunting. She doesn't care for storms much either, but is not destructive. If you feel Danni would be a good fit for you, please contact us for an application.
* Update: Danni and Rocco are best buds and we would not be opposed to adopting them together.
"PUCK", 1 1/2 yr old neutered male Registered Wirehaired Pointing Griffon
Puck is a lovely 1 1/2 yr old purebred neutered male WPG, who has previous aggression history. While he has done excellent with his training, he will need an owner who is a strong pack leader and has a good no nonsense attitude about training and will stay consistent with Puck. He has previous aggression with people and other dogs, but is playing well with others here at the kennel. Because of his previous history we will not allow him to go to a home with small children. Puck has a very good work ethic and is doing excellent with his commands. He will make the right person an excellent companion and possible hunting dog. If you feel this guy could fit into your household, please contact us for an application.
"GUS", 5 yr Old Neutered Male GWP/Vizsla mix -Courtesy posting
Gus is a 5 year-old neutered male, 1/2 GWP and 1/2 Vizsla. He is about 55 pounds, current on all vacs, heartworm negative and on prevention. Nice tight coat that requires only minimal stripping. He is active and athletic and needs a good bit of exercise daily. He plays well with other similar sized dogs but I don't know how he is with small dogs. He has shown predatory behavior toward cats. He is very sweet, not aggressive toward livestock (he has been for runs in my pasture and ignores my sheep and horses), was raised with children (but not babies or toddlers). Crate-trained, has some basic education (knows "sit", "here/come", "kennel", walks ok on leash). His pedigree on both sides goes back to Champions, Dual Champions, and Field/Amateur Field Champions. Sire is OFA excellent. Everything behind the sire is health-tested, don't know about GWP side. Gus needs a home through no fault of his own - he was with the same family since he was 10 weeks old, but they have a terminally ill son and just can't care for their dogs right now. Located in Phenix City, AL. I want to find him a home within reasonable driving distance, not interested in shipping him across the country. Please contact us for more info.
"TESSA" Female mixed breed puppy, unkown parantage, medium size?
Tessa is a very sweet, happy little girl. She was found, so we don't know anything about her past or her parantage. The vet guesses her birthday to be approximately 1/19/15. She has been dewormed, is on flea control, has had her first set of shots, and is deamed healthy by the vet. We are guessing she will be medium sized by her approximate age and current size, but this is only a guess. Tessa has started crate training and is ready to be adopted. She can't be spayed until she is 4 months, but this is a must for her new owner. If you feel like you can provide a good, loving home for Tessa, please contact us for an application.
"JESTER" Male mixed breed puppy, unkown parantage, medium size?
Update- We believe Jester is a Shar Pei mix
Jester is a very sweet, happy little boy. He was found with his sister, Tessa, so we don't know anything about his past or his parantage. The vet guesses his birthday to be approximately 1/19/15. He has been dewormed, is on flea control, has had his first set of shots, and is deamed healthy by the vet. He does have an eye infection that may be caused by an eyelash growing into his eye. It is being treated and healing well, but he may require surgery for this when he gets neutered. We are guessing he will be medium sized by his approximate age and current size, but this is only a guess. He is smaller than his sister. As you can see, Jester may be small, but he is just loaded with personality. Jester has started crate training and is ready to be adopted. He can't be neutered until he is 4 months, but this is a must for his new owner. If you feel like you can provide a good, loving home for Jester, please contact us for an application.
"ZEVA", Approx. 5 yr Old Spayed Female Doberman Pinscher
Zeva is a very well mannered, sweet doberman. She is friendly with people, but we don't know her history with small children, so would prefer a home without them. She is choosy about the dogs she likes, so if you have another dog, they would have to meet first. She is housebroken and knows basic obedience. Zeva is a good watch dog and is extremely protective of the car, but LOVES to ride:) If you feel like you would be a suitable home for Zeva, please contact us for an application.
"ROCCO", 9 yr old neutered male German Wirehaired Pointer
"ROCCO" was rescued by a couple who did a lot for him, but ultimately couldn't keep him forever. He is a very nice dog that just needs a firm owner. Rocco has excellent manners and is housebroken. He just isn't fond of strange men and goes into guard dog mode when he meets one. He will receive some training before he leaves us, but will need an owner that understands and is willing to follow through. If you feel Rocco would be a good fit for you, please contact us for an application.
