PLEASE NOTE: A fence is always mandatory - no exceptions. Be sure to read ALL our adoption policies prior to applying for a puppy/dog.
Update: Cara arrived and she is even prettier, sweeter, and funny then we thought. She met everyone and was just so kind to each dog. Her boyfriend's turned out to be Barnaby & Baby Huey (video's of their meeting is below) but she was just as friendly with the girls here.
She appears to have no issues with people. She met everyone on the transport and just leaned into everyone. She was happy to meet my husband and he thought she is very pretty also.
She is smaller then we thought, she is only about 30 pounds but she needs to gain about 5 more. She has a lot of loose skin. Just had a litter of pups -- God knows where they are - grrrr!!!
This is our new girl Cara. As you can see she is a very pretty girl! She will be arriving via transport 2-1-09 from South Carolina.
She is a yellow/red - lab/hound mix who is very, very sweet and a very happy girl! She loves everyone and wants to kiss and play, kiss and play. We are looking forward to meeting her and getting her on her way to finding her new parents.

Our adoption donation is $200 which is (1/2) of what we've actually spent to properly vet & spay/neuter each of our dogs. Any donation above that would be greatly appreciated would be tax deductible since we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit!

Any dog/pup adopted from us must have a fenced in property either Physical or Petstop Electric Fence. We do NOT accept any other branddue to the high failure rate. The fence must be installed prior to us completing an adoption application. If you need an electric fence contact the company Petstop @ http://www.petstop.com/
We abide by the Humane Association's recommendation. For ANY DOG adoption to have a relatively good chance of success, we believe a child should be 8 years old & up. We only adopt what we call our 'BONA-FIDE Kid Lovers to families with children.' Many dogs do not want to live with children. You should only adopt a dog who LOVES kids to be sure you are able to make a lifetime commitment to a dog.
We also expect that if no one is home all day, arrangements will be made to provide the dog with at least (1) 'potty break' daily. This can be through a family member, neighbor, or Petsitting service. We know that it is impossible for us humans to 'hold it' for 8-10 hours, so we do not want our 'shelter kids' to be expected to do so.
