#BWLuckyDog: Ziggy

Meet Ziggy!

Our #BWLuckyDog this week is Ziggy, from Halfway There Rescue!

Learn about Ziggy through his own point of view:

Hi! My name is Ziggy! I’m about 10 months old. It’s hard to tell what breeds I might be by looking at me, but I’m super handsome. I currently weigh 40 lbs and am going to be a medium sized dog. I was adopted when I was a tiny puppy, but my adopters decided I was too big and energetic so returned me last week. I didn’t do anything wrong. I am a super sweet and a smart puppy, but they didn’t provide me with the type of exercise and stimulation I need to be calm, therefore found me hyper and hard to handle around their small children. My foster mom says I’m a really good boy, I just have a lot of energy!

Once I’ve been for a walk and played with I love to chill out and lay in a lap. I saw a cat yesterday and excitement got the best of me. I really wanted to chase it, so my foster mom thinks I would do best in a home without kitties, even though I most just want to chase and not hurt them. I’m super affectionate with my foster mom and follow her all over the place. I’m quickly learning that new places aren’t so scary by going out on adventures with my foster brother and sister. I was pretty scared of the car at first, but my foster siblings are showing me that car rides mean going to fun places, (even grouchy sister loves to ride in the car so maybe it’s not so bad), and I relax a little more everyday!

My foster mom has also introduced me to this new thing called a crate. There’s lots of good toys and things to chew in there, but I’m still a little anxious about going in. Once in, I will lay down quietly though and wait until I’m let out. I’ll get used to it soon and will learn to think of it as my own little den. I’m proud to say I’m fully housebroken and whine to let my foster mom know when I need to go out. I also haven’t chewed on anything I’m not supposed to, so I may not need to be in a crate too much.

I would love to live with a person or family who is very active. I love to walk and my foster mom is pretty sure I would also love to go jogging, running, rollerblading or even biking with my human.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my story. If you think you have the room in your heart to give me the forever home I deserve, please consider adopting me! I would love nothing more than to be your jogging buddy and best friend, and I promise I’m a really good boy. I just need to be given a second chance by the right person or family!

#BWLuckyDog: BeeTee

Meet BeeTee!

Our #BWLuckyDog this week is BeeTee, from Carolina P.A.W.S.!

Meet BeeTee, a handsome little Labrador Retriever mix born around 2/16/17. BeeTee is an adventurous puppy seeking out that ever dangerous crinkly toy, or his favorite; a leaf! He and his siblings came to our rescue after Animal Control was called to a home to pick them up. Luckily we were able to get to them hours after they arrived at the shelter.

BeeTee is almost always the first puppy to greet his foster family and of course wants to be the first to be held. When he isn’t busy playing, he is super content just being held. Due to BeeTee’s age, a home where a family member is home more often than not, is best. When he is full grown we feel he will be around 40 to 45 pounds. His adoption donation will include his current vaccines, his future rabies, microchip, and his neuter.

 

For more information on or a chance to meet BeeTee, please e-mail Carolina P.A.W.S. at adopt@carolinapaws.com.

#BWLuckyDog: Kendal

Meet Kendal!

Our #BWLuckyDog this week is Kendal, from Greater Charlotte SPCA!

Kendal is a 6 month old female Boston Terrier mix who weighs 23 pounds. She is a sweet, loving puppy who adores people, children and other dogs. She has an autoimmune disorder called Ischemic Dermatopathy. She will likely need to be on medication and a special food diet most of her life.  She will likely have some scarring from the rash on her face but she does not seem to be bothered by any of it. She acts like a normal happy puppy and doesn’t appear to have any pain. She loves to snuggle and hugs when you pick her up! Kendal would make a great addition to any home!​

#BWLuckyDog: Who needs a home?

Meet our #BWLuckyDog’s!

Each week throughout this campaign we introduced a new black pup who needs a good home (some weeks we even introduced 2!). Our #BWLuckyDog campaign is over, but we’re hustlin’ to get these babes into good homes…

Daisy is about 4 months old and is heart worm negative. She hasn’t had the easiest journey, coming from a multiple dog household where there was suspicions of abuse and neglect. Although she was previously underweight, Daisy is now bulked up to 40lbs even, which earned vet approval for her frame.
Daisy is doing well with crate training now in an airline style crate (plastic enclosed), and is improving her basic obedience skills. She still gets nervous, but with her human’s trust and affection, Daisy can be introduced to new things and other dogs.

For more information on or a chance to meet Daisy, please email Greater Charlotte SPCA at daniellew@charlottespca.org.

Darling is an adorable little diva who came to South of the Bully as a stray. She lacked early puppy socialization, so now her foster mom is working hard to show her the sights and sounds of the world. When offered structure and guidance, Darling does well, but let her get away with it and she’ll run her naughty flag up the pole for all to see (she’s a teenager in dog years)! This gorgeous gal loves adventure, is an enthusiastic playmate and she’d make a great running partner. Darling needs a family who will set boundaries and ground rules for her to follow. With these, she is an excellent companion who keeps her foster mom laughing on a daily basis. She’s housebroken, crate trained, and does well on her leash. Part bluff, part monkey, and a double dose of cuddles!

For more information on or a chance to meet Darling, please email South of the Bully at sotb.adoptions@gmail.com.

Portia is a beautiful 3 year old lab/boxer mix. She is a super sweet girl that would do well in a home with older children. She is interested in cats, but learns boundaries quickly. Portia can be very active. She LOVES swimming, running, hiking and playing ball. At the end of a day, she just wants to cuddle up with you and her stuffed animals for some quality snuggle time. Portia is heartworm negative, spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines.

For more information on or a chance to meet Portia, please email Catering to Cats & Dogs Rescue at gdslove23@gmail.com.

Cher is the happiest gal with the perfect personality! She was found running around all alone after a bad storm as a pup, but when nobody came to claim her SOTB took her in. How lucky we were to get such a sweetie pie! SOTB couldn’t be more proud of the great, gorgeous dog she’s become. She is a bit over a year old and just the right size at 45lb. She is house, leash and crate trained, and knows all the basic commands. She’s groovy with other dogs and children and she’s even learning how fun it can be to get out and about with her family! This girl is a smarty pants who would love to learn more commands and tricks if you are interested in teaching her. At night, she loves to snuggle with her fosters, so she would be down for some Netflix and chill after a good walk or playtime!

For more information on or a chance to meet Cher, please email South of the Bully at sotb.adoptions@gmail.com.

Rocky is a lab-mix stray that was rescued from a very small shelter in SC. He is only about a year old and is still very much a puppy!  Rocky is fully house trained and loves to play.  He gets along with his foster lab sister and all the furry friends at doggy day care.  Rocky needs a family that will love him and give him lots of attention.  He is very smart and needs to be kept busy, either playing with another dog his age or with an active human that will take him for walks everyday or the doggy park, or even to work with you!  Rocky goes in the crate during the day when we leave, but not at night.  He loves to be with his people when they are home and will snuggle beside you on the couch or by your feet at night. As active as Rocky is during the day, he is just as ready to sleep at night – and sleeps straight thru the night! Rocky will be an awesome dog for a family willing to take the time to play with him.

For more information on or a chance to meet Rocky, please email Lucky Labs Rescue at llradoptions@gmail.com or llrcharlotte@gmail.com.

Gidget is the perfect combination of silly and sweet all rolled up into one. Gidget is a boxer/pit bull mix who is approximately 2 years old, smaller in size at only 35 pounds and still looking for her forever home. She is completely house broken, crate trained and 100% love bug! She is either entertaining her foster parents with her silly antics or curled up in a ball cuddling. Gidget spends most of her day playing with her four legged foster brothers. She does great with other dogs of all sizes and cats, once given an opportunity to learn they don’t want to hurt her. Gidget was rescued from a shelter after being held as evidence in an animal cruelty case. When she came into rescue she was a scared little girl who has blossomed and discovered it is ok to trust, love and have fun. Now all Gidget needs is the happily ever after she deserves.
