Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat). Chip is a very special boy. He was found wandering around a neighborhood when he was only 8 weeks old. A vet exam revealed that Chip was both blind and deaf. It is remarkable that he was walking around alone and was not hurt or killed! Chip is now 1 year old. We know that he was born blind and deaf. He has been diagnosed with Merle Ocular Dysgenesis, a congenital disease which unfortunately has no treatment. Regardless of Chip's "disabilities" he is a happy, healthy and active dog. He uses his sense of touch and smell to navigate this world with ease! He is a true inspiration to us all! Chip is house-trained and leash trained. He does great with other dogs, but needs to be with dogs who can tolerate his playfulness and inability to notice if they are giving him signals to stop playing. Chip uses other dogs as his eyes and ears, so he needs another dog in his forever home. He enjoys being outside and does well with cats and older children. *FENCED YARD REQUIRED (no underground/invisible fences) If you are interested in adopting Chip, please fill out an application from our website.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

She was found by a nice person who took her and her friend in from the cold. Her friend found a home and we brought Billie Jean into our rescue. Billie Jean is a sweet dog, but right now she is very scared. We are not sure if she's ever been to a vet before because of her fear. She is slowly getting used to the techs and the Dr's and allowing them to pet her. This little girl needs a quiet home with a fenced yard for her protection when she is outdoors. She will need a patient family without small children right now. If you would like to meet Billie Jean please fill out an application from our website. Adoption donation is $200.

      Breed: Chihuahua

      Age: Adult
      Location: Mount Airy, NC
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Nila is a special little girl. She is a 9 year old Chihuahua and weighs about 8.5 pounds. Nila was brought to us by someone who got her from the owner. She had a lump on her belly that just kept growing and growing. When she was brought to us we thought this was a horrible tumor. What it turned out to be was a huge hernia!! All of her intestines were outside of her body in a large sac. The Dr had to do a very involved surgery to get everything back in its correct place. Nila was spayed during the surgery and is healing nicely now. She just went to a new foster home where she is very happy. She loves playing with the other dogs and getting much needed attention from her foster parents. We haven't tested Nila with kids or cats yet. If you would like to meet her please fill out an application from our website.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Mount Airy, NC
      Posted Breed: Hound / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). See Bishop's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Bishop was a terrified, hungry, abused, and injured dog when SAR volunteers were finally able to catch him after many failed attempts. An exam by a veterinarian showed a dog that had been badly abused. He was underweight, heartworm positive, and had an embedded harness! Bishop was scared of humans and human contact. He trusted nobody. Bishop's long road of recovery began with emergency surgery to remove the embedded harness. Infection had already set in. After rest, good nutrition, and plenty of antibiotics, Bishop recovered. Next, he had to endure months of heartworm treatment. He came through with flying colors and was eventually given a clean bill of health. Bishop is 3 years old now and is physically completely healed up and healthy! Emotionally, however, he still struggles with trust and is extremely shy when he meets someone new. Strange sounds and objects can scare him, so he will need patience and understanding from his forever family. Once he gets to know you, he quickly bonds with you and stays right by your side! How amazing that he can still be so loyal to humans after all he has been through. Bishop absolutely loves other dogs and finds a great deal of comfort in their presence, so he prefers a family with another dog. He enjoys going to his local doggie daycare and playing with his friends. Bishop is house-trained and loves going for walks. He also enjoys playing in the water and swimming! He is a big boy, weighing 100 pounds, but he is so gentle and affectionate. Bishop needs a loving forever family to continue is rehabilitation and love him unconditionally. Please consider offering him a forever home with all the love and nurturing from a family that he so deserves! *FENCED YARD REQUIRED (no underground/invisible fences) If you are interested in adopting Bishop, please fill out an adoption application from our website.
