CHAINED TO A TREE FOR 7 YEARS!!!!! LOVES BEING WITH PEOPLE! VIDEO UPDATE 11/9/16: Lucky is 8 years old (born May 28, 2008) and weighs 50 pounds. He came to us in July 2015, after spending his ENTIRE LIFE NEGLECTED at the end of a CHAIN. His owners got him as a puppy! Extremely emaciated when seized by Animal Control, he is valued, loved, and appropriately cared for now. He is a very good boy too! Lucky’s NEEDS are SIMPLE: He needs a CALM, LOVING HOME, FENCED YARD in a quiet location, and SOMEONE to hang out with because he loves being with people. During times when his person has to do errands, he would not mind napping inside a crate. When he KNOWS he ISN’T missing anything, he is quiet and relaxed. He would prefer to be the only pet, because he hasn’t had much experience with other animals and some of them make him anxious. HIS STORY: Because he paced around the tree he was CHAINED to for 7 YEARS, his “muscle memory” takes over here and he sometimes paces inside his room so much that he makes himself limp. When he is WITH people he does NOT PACE. He ONLY barks and paces for HUMAN ATTENTION when he hears humans NEARBY and cannot be WITH them. His calling out “I hear you and want to be with you” is understandable when you remember that for 7 years he “watched life pass him by.” When totally alone (and cannot hear people doing things around him) he does not pace. When we are working around him at the shelter, but cannot actually be with him, we crate him so he cannot pace and hurt himself. Lucky is not destructive when left alone; he does NOT have what many people think of as separation anxiety. Being with people relaxes him and so does the background noise of a television. He is an ideal and cozy couch potato for someone who watches TV. Not a high energy dog, he excels at relaxing and hanging out with people. Lucky loves the people he knows, enjoys training exercises, accepts treats with a gentle mouth, and absolutely loves moseying around a big yard with people by his side. After 7 years of being ignored, freezing, and starving, he loves to feel special, and THAT is what we do. Our volunteer Astrid has taken Lucky under her wings and they are best friends. He spends weekends having sleepovers at her home, and she takes him on lots of car trips that he loves. Astrid is at the shelter most Sunday afternoons and can personally introduce you to him and tell you all about his good behavior and excellent house manners. I (Flower) am one of his good friends too and he and I spend a lot of time hanging out together in the big yard, loving on each other. Not touched for 7 years, Lucky is now “a leaner” and really enjoys being petted and having his butt scratched. He has so many GREAT qualities. He: - is good on a leash, enjoys outdoor yard time, is not a climber or a digger, and he loves riding in the car! - has very good house manners and has never shown any interest in “marking” inside the house. - is house trained and crate trained (but shouldn’t have to spend much time inside a crate). - isn’t destructive with blanket in his crate and doesn't shred blankets or soft things in Astrid’s home. (In frustration, he does sometimes tear up soft things when he is in his room at the shelter and wants to be with nearby people instead.) - knows the commands “sit” “down” “leave-it” “let’s walk” “off” and is learning “wait.” - can entertain himself for hours if you give him a Kong stuffed with delicious, meaty treats and then frozen. - only barks when he is confined away from nearby human action and voices—he wants to be included in the activity. Because he paces in circles, we have had several professional evaluations done on him and will happily share those with anyone who would like to read them. Lucky is NOT a problem dog. Life has just “passed him by” for long enough and he wants and needs someone to love him and include him in their everyday lives. PLEASE allow empathy for Lucky to bless you with the knowledge that YOU could make his life here on Earth WORTH LIVING! YOU have the power to turn him into one of the luckiest dogs in the world, and if you adopt him, he’s sure to be your most loyal dog ever. If you cannot ADOPT him, can you FOSTER HIM? Flower at ek.gk@verizon.net or 434-361-0190 can tell you a lot more about him. VOLUNTEERS and DONATIONS NEEDED. Visit our website for more info http://nelsonspca.org

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.
Breed Group: Unspecified
Country of Origin: Unknown

More About Mutt Breed
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.

HELP TO HEAL FUND DESIGNEE! ARRIVED SICK AND EMACIATED!!! NOV. 22, 2016: Go ahead. Take a look! These photos of a sick and emaciated Henry are hard to look at but the GOOD NEWS is that YOU can help us help him by donating to his “Help to Heal” fund! Henry, a very sweet Hound mix, just arrived at our shelter, and we are so THANKFUL that we have him. He seems to be about 2½ years old, and he weighs only 44 pounds. (He needs to gain a lot of weight.) He is an ASPCA TV commercial—that is for sure—but we are going to change all of that because THAT is what we DO! Keep in mind as you look at Henry that these are his “BEFORE” photos, and we will be showcasing him in his “AFTER” photos one day in the not too distant future. We are vetting Henry very well; treating him for Lyme, Ehrlichia, hookworms, and whip worms. His extremely thin coat is due to poor nutrition, and it will be getting much better because we are feeding him (twice a day) very nutritious vet prescribed Royal Canin Gastrointestinal food that is sure to put a healthy weight on him soon. Henry literally has many bald spots all over his body where his hair has fallen out in clumps. Had we not gotten him when we did, he probably would have frozen to death, or died of starvation, within the next week or two. We won’t have him neutered for about 3 weeks when he is healthier and stronger. HIS STORY: Henry was found by two women who were traveling though Nelson County, saw him, picked him up, and contributed $50.00 to help with his medical care. When his hold time at Animal Control was up, he became our very precious Almost Home family member. Yesterday Lish and I (Flower) spent time in Henry’s room with him, petting him and giving him many tiny bits of delicious treats. Even though he has been a starving dog, he accepted our treats with a mouth so gentle we hardly felt him take them from our hands. He let us touch him everywhere and he even let me clean his ears a little bit. We didn’t force ourselves on him—we just let him know that all of the people he comes in contact with now will be good people who have his best interests at heart. Today, Bette, Fonda and I sat with him, petted him, and he truly enjoyed the treats we hand fed him. We fell totally in love with him, of course. Henry has all the makings of being someone’s very beloved pet, and we are getting him all ready to fit that bill. We will update his webpage as he progresses, so stay tuned to watch him turn into a real Prince Charming. Donations to the “Help to Heal Fund” on our Humane Society/SPCA of Nelson County website would be much appreciated too. 100% of what you donate to him will benefit him personally!

FANTASTIC WITH OTHER DOGS, CATS AND KIDS! VIDEO!!! UPDATE 8/6/16: Vixie is a beautiful lemon and white hound. She is about 3 years old and weighs 55 pounds. She has beautiful, long legs. She came to us as a stray in January 2016, afraid of gunshots, fireworks, and loud noises. She was adopted right after we got her, but returned in May because her family lived in a neighborhood close to several busy roads and she kept digging out under their fence. They loved her very much, but couldn’t chance her getting hit by a car during her many escapes. The following words were written by her mom and given to us when Vixie was returned: “VIXIE LIKES PEOPLE AND KIDS AND IS GREAT WITH OTHER DOGS AND CATS TOO. (They have two small children and Vixie did very well with them.) Vixie, named after the lady fox in the “Fox and the Hound,” is a sweet soul. She may have been neglected as a pup, or at least did not have much interaction with humans, and as a result is VERY independent. Her instinct is to sniff and run, like some hounds do, and is very determined to get where she wants, so she needs a very secure fence to keep her safe. Vixie takes a while to settle into a new home, and will be quite reclusive until she’s comfortable. For that reason, it’s best to keep her close to her humans as much as possible so that they can start to bond and she doesn’t mope too much. She may seem unsociable at first, but she but will come round to humans who are patient and invest time with her. It’s very rewarding when she does. Vixie has MANY GREAT TRAITS. She: - is house trained. Had 2 accidents the first 2 days but thereafter was very good about keeping it in. - did not chew on things and she did not scratch at things. - wasn’t crated in the house and didn’t need to be. She was very attached to her bed so might like a crate. - did not bark in the house but she did bark outside a lot when she scented something. - our other hound Copper would stay in the living room (uncrated) when we left them home alone. I made sure to close the doors so that they didn’t roam the house and find trouble to get into. When we were gone it seemed that Vixie just headed to her bed to sleep. VIXIE IS FANTASTIC WITH OTHER DOGS, CATS, KIDS, and BASICALLY EVERYTHING. She is not playful with them, but is respectful and will even tolerate massive amounts of attention from toddlers. This is how you can tell she has a genuinely sweet soul, without a mean bone in her body.” Vixie needs a family with lots of time and patience to work with her. A large, securely fenced yard (perhaps with an electric cattle wire under it to prevent her from digging under), or acreage NOT close to a busy road, IS A MUST for her. Each time she made an escape from the home she was in, she always came back home. “House hounds” make great pets and Vixie will thrive with the right family!!! If you are interested in her, we can arrange for you to talk to the wonderful family she lived with recently. GOOD WITH DOGS. GOOD WITH CATS. GOOD WITH KIDS.

VERY FRIENDLY & LOVES ATTENTION!!! A REAL LOVE BUG! UPDATE 9/24/16: Skillet is a tall, handsome American Fox Hound (mix), with great markings and those loveable hound ears. He is about 3 years old, and even though he is quite thin, weighs 57 pounds. He is very friendly and loves affection, almost more than he loves cookies! He showed up at a house with his friend, Spencer. They made friends with the man, who tried to find their owners, but unfortunately no one was looking for them. Sadly, the man who found them was unable to keep them, so he brought them to almost home to be sure they would be taken care of. They went to Animal Control to wait out their “hold time” and now Skillet is back with us!!! (His friend Spencer got adopted last week.) I played with Skillet today while a child’s birthday party was happening at the shelter. He was such a happy boy and he really seemed to LOVE being around the children. He was standing tall on his hind legs and kissing them through the fence whenever they would come near him. With me, he very gently stood tall to hug and kiss me too. When I told him to get down, he did, as long as I went down to his level and showered him with love. Skillet is a real “love bug” who loves to give hugs and receive kisses. He is very debonair too. Take a very good look at him here and KNOW that if you and he are a good fit for each other, he could be your very own HOUSE HOUND! (House Hounds are all the rage—just ask anyone who has one. And the American Fox Hound won Best in Show in several breed competitions in 2015 and 2016.) He would do well in a family that had children six years old or older. Even though he loves the little kids too, he could easily “bowl them over” with his love. Good with Dogs Good with Kids VOLUNTEERS and DONATIONS NEEDED.

UPDATE: AUG 6, 2016 Before you even read this, please WATCH SPANKY’S NEW VIDEO so you’ll be able to picture some of the things you’ll read about here. Spanky is one of the smartest dogs we have. He can twirl to the left, twirl to the right, and jump through hoops—literally! And he is now learning to weave through walking legs!!! He loves working with our dog trainer Sigrid, and when it is just he and she in a room, he responds to her every request. They are good friends. Spanky IS a “trickster” and an “athlete” and he needs a person who will love him to pieces and admire him as they teach him new things. He loves to please the people he loves. Just LOOK AT HIM! He is a VERY CUDDLY young man, very happy to fall asleep next to you as you pet his tight little belly. He’s even happier to install his heavy little body ON your lap. Spanky, a 3 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier that weighs 46 pounds, came to us just out his puppy stage after a VERY COLD winter. He and his dog brother and sister had been confined outdoors, neglected, and his brother actually FROZE to death! When Spanky and his sister arrived at our shelter they were SO HAPPY to get here. His sister, not as shy as Spanky, was adopted soon after we got her. Spanky, built like a stout little fire plug (he needs to lose a few pounds), wears a tight fitting, easy maintenance, soft BLUE BRINDLE coat over his well-muscled body and when he gets his 45 pounds in true strut mode, people stop to admire him and hearts flutter. No one has ever seen a dog that looks like him! He can run like the wind when he wants to, but he isn’t a high energy dog. Because he’s been here for two years now, he’s become the mascot of our shelter. With this smile, he makes a good “front man” too. He was even featured on “The Bark” Magazine’s website BECAUSE of his smile! - Spanky is SHORT, SQUAT, and he LOVES the people that he knows (though he is shy around new people). - Spanky prefers not to be around small children, strangers, or noisy, chaotic situations or things. - He rarely barks and is a nice, portable size. - He walks well on a leash, sits for treats, and accepts them with a very soft mouth. - He LOVES belly-rubs and pretty much any type of affection you want to give him. - He knows and responds to many commands: DOWN, WAIT, SIT, TWIRL TO THE RIGHT, TWIRL TO THE LEFT, CATCH, LEAVE-IT, and he’s learning new words all the time. - He loves working with Sigrid, our resident dog trainer, and responds very well to her consistent ways because he loves her and wants to please her! - He is “a favorite” of nearly all of our “dog walkers” and he easily wins the hearts of all who know him. - He is VERY CLEAN in his room…an indication that he’d be very easy to house train. - If you sit on his bed with him, he’ll invite you to play with him and if you don’t, he’ll lay down next to you and cuddle in close for affection. - Even though Spanky is shy around strangers, he moved right in for some good ole affection from Santa! He attempted to kiss Santa a few times, standing tall on his tippy-toes to get within kissing range. Staffordshire Bull Terriers are a wonderful, unique, smart and loving breed of dog. Spanky’s “forever home” hasn’t yet found him but THAT is only because he is waiting for a smart person like YOU (who knows and loves bully breed type doges) to discover him. Whoever is lucky enough to adopt this little, loyal, fun, smart guy is going to have a lot of fun with him. He will study you closely to see if he can figure out what you want him to do because he is going to want to please you to the moon and back. That is just the kind of dog he is. Spanky is not a fan of most other dogs either—he’s afraid of them. He wants and needs to be someone’s own personal “show man” and lap dog and he would probably do best as an only pet in a home where children don’t visit. You can arrange to meet Spanky and spend some quality time with him, by calling our shelter and MAKING AN APPOINTMENT to do so. If you do meet him, you’ll be VERY IMPRESSED by the little guy and the way he struts his stuff. He could NOT be any cuter! Please allow us to introduce you to this fabulous, though sometimes shy, cuddle dog! Our dog trainer Sigrid is a person you must talk with if you are interested in this wonderful dog. Fonda, at rockfishkayaker@aol.com can also answer some of your questions. NOT GOOD WITH DOGS. NOT GOOD WITH KIDS. VOLUNTEERS and DONATIONS NEEDED.

VERY SWEET! A LITTLE SHY! UPDATE 8/9/16: Brent is one of our new arrivals. He is about 2 years old, weighs 50 pounds, and seems to be a Foxhound (mix). He is very sweet but VERY SHY here in his new environment. He has a very cute face but it is easy to see the worry behind his eyes.

We can’t imagine why he is as tentative and afraid as he is BUT he doesn’t seem to have a mean bone in his body. Brent really perks up and has a great time when Scott goes in to clean Brent’s room first thing in the morning. We have no idea why “that event” seems to be a moment when Brent can relax, but it is. Brent also enjoys the company of his roommate Vixie/Magnolia very much. We’ll write more about Brent him as we learn more. For now, we can tell you he is a really nice dog and we are working with him to help bring him out of his shell. From what we can tell, Brent would do best in a calm home, with a securely fenced yard and another dog or two to keep him company. GOOD WITH DOGS. VOLUNTEERS and DONATIONS NEEDED.

DELIGHTFUL MID-SIZED DOG!!! AND SO HANDSOME! UPDATE 8/9/16: Tucker came into our shelter on 2/1/16. He is a handsome 2 ½ year old Walker Hound/Fox Hound (mix) that weighs 46 pounds. He was surrendered to Animal Control because his owner simply didn't want him anymore. Very sad but we are happy to have him. There is nothing wrong with Tucker! He is a delightful mid-sized dog who really WANTS and deserves to be WANTED and we are so happy to help him make his dreams come true! Tucker loved to play with his feisty and fun roommate Sylvia, but she recently got adopted. She would run like the wind and he loved to try to keep up with her. (He likes his girls leggy and FAST!) And the way they would flirt with each other was very funny. Tucker enjoys visitors so much that he is often all over the place with his excitement when he has company. He is a smart dog though, and is learning to “be still” when Sigrid, our dog handler, asks him to. Tucker was a real hit at the Memorial Day celebration up on Wintergreen Mountain. He was friendly with dogs and kids and didn't seem bothered by the loud music. He was well mannered on leash and didn't bark. He rode well in the van too. Clearly, he enjoyed his day out! Tucker does have some energy to burn off, so he would like an active family who would take him on interesting walks and he would probably love to have a dog friend too. He has been known to try to dig out of certain fenced areas…but not all fenced areas. We are trying to figure him out in regard to this. GOOD WITH DOGS. GOOD WITH KIDS.
