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.
"Aspen", 7 yr old Spayed Female GWP
"Aspen" is the sweetest girl ever. She has been retired from breeding/showing and is looking to be someone's number one priority instead of one of many dogs. Aspen is a grand champion show dog and and also has her Junior Hunter title, but hasn't hunted in many years. She did love it when she was young though and may enjoy it again. Mostly she just wants lots of love and affection and a place on the couch. If you feel Aspen would be a good fit for you, please contact us for an application.

"NIXIE", young adult, spayed female GWP
"Nixie" has been through a few homes in her short life. She definitely needs her next home to be her forever home. Nixie loves people, especially if they will play fetch with her! But, Nixie is nervous of small children, so is not a good fit for a family with toddlers. Nixie is also not good with other animals. She is a bit of a bully with them and will not be a good companion with another dog. She doesn't show high prey drive, so may be okay with caged critters, but not cats, as she growls at them. If you feel Nixie would be a good fit for you, please contact us for an application.
"GUNNER",Neutered Male GWP
"Gunner" is a dominant male who needs an owner with experience and knowledge about controlling aggression. He has a previous bite history with his first owners, so we will not release him to someone who doesn't have confidence with being a pack leader. We have not had trouble with Gunner here as we are very in charge of him. He has gone through training and is very obedient for us, but still fancies himself as a watch dog, so caution will always be needed when introducing him to new people. He is good with other dogs and absolutely loves attention from people he knows. Please contact us for more info.
"RUGER", 2 yr old neutered male GWP (mix?)
"Ruger" is and outgoing happy boy, who is housebroken and has some basic obedience training. Ruger is great with people of all sizes and most dogs, but does take exception to the occasion male dog, so would be best as an only dog or with females. Ruger has good manners, but is definitely up for challenging new people, so will need an owner who is confident and willing to take charge. He is very interested in cats, but may work out with them if his new owner is capable of training him. If you feel this handsome boy could fit into your household and you have the time and dedication that he needs, please contact us for an application.
"Cobalt", 1 yr old neutered male American Pit Bull Terrier
"Cobalt" is as sweet as they come. He gets along well with other dogs and loves people. Cobalt is fully house broken and crate trained and just loves to be loved on. Cobalt is okay with cats, but will chase them if they run. He is not good with small critters like birds or rabbits. If you feel this handsome guy could fit into your household please contact us for an application.
ADOPTED! Cotton got her very own Merry Christmas! :)
