Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Mountain Cur / Mixed (medium coat). Socks (Socky) is an adorable young mix of Shar Pei (check out her small ears) and probably Kimmer Cur as judged from the colors of her coat and general size. She was 9 months old at input and weighed 33 pounds. She is now (5-1-16) about two years old and weighs about 35 lbs. Socks has been spayed and is up to date on her vaccines and tested negative for heart worms. Socks was abandoned by a family in Robbinsville, North Carolina when they moved and saved by a neighbor who was her initial foster. She was house-trained and socialized with her foster's 5 dogs and is sweet and friendly. Socks likes to be outdoors and would require a fenced yard for her protection although she doesn't run off when outside. Her current foster has 2 other dogs (pit bull and Labrador retriever) and she gets along fine with everyone. She is somewhat shy at first but loves to play and likes to sleep on the bed in the arms of her foster and enjoys a few sips of Chardonnay in the afternoon. This is a wonderful dog. If you are interested in providing a home for Socks, please contact Ron Stoessell at 985-630-1613 or at or her foster Cindy Mulkey at 828-557-4263.

Request to Add a New Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, 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.

    • Treeing Walker Coonhound Dog For Adoption in Murphy, NC, USA



      Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound (medium coat). Olivia entered as a 20 month old, spayed, female, tricolor Treeing Walker Coonhound who is totally vetted. She is beautiful with a black saddle and is sweet and eager to please. She does not want to run off when outside. Olivia is house-trained and uses a doggy door. She still has a lot of puppy in her and wants to play. She came from DHS in Louisiana where she was crated most of the time and was reported to bark while crated and to climb fences. Here she does not climb the 5 ft chain leak fences, dig, or bark but then she is not in a crate. Instead she roams free within several fenced yards and uses the doggy doors to enter and leave the cabin. She does like to chew and that is being worked on because she had no prior training. Signifiant success has been made on the chewing because she wants to please. We think she will be the unusual coonhound who doesn't roam when released but stays with her owner. There is absolutely no barking if she is not crated.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Zia is a beautiful 45 lb, 6 month old red nose pit bull. Her coat is a solid dark red. She will probably be about 60 lbs when an adult. Zia is sociable around other dogs and loves to play. She is good with kids, adults, and cats and is a perfect family dog without any aggression. Zia has been house-trained, doggy door trained, crate trained, and is fine on a leash. She should have a fenced yard to be safe in and be allowed to sleep indoors.
