Delaware #204 – Delaware was picked up on Kenny Nelson Rd on 7/21/16. He is neutered American Bulldog mix. He was very underweight when he came in, but has since gained and currently weighs a healthy 46 pounds. He is going on 5 years old. He is sweet and loves attention and petting. He is doing well and is a real love bug, giving hugs when he comes out of his kennel to greet you. He needs to be the only dog in a home with no other dogs involved. He absolutely loves people and wants to be your one and only companion. This sweetheart needs a home of his own! He was adopted out the end of February, but the new owner failed to keep him up, placed him in a crate with another dog where he immediately fought, and then dumped him in a nearby shelter. He is back to his old loving self now and we absolutely adore him. He will ONLY be adopted to an approved, references, and home check visit home.
Hawkeye #244 – Hawkeye is a male lab mix found as a stray on Nashville Highway in Chapel Hill. He is very friendly and outgoing and has gotten much better since his neuter. He will still go at a male dog but he loves to play and romp with the non alpha females. High energy and a barker! He needs room to run and a family to help him spend alot of that energy! Very smart and highly food and treat motivated, this guy has alot of potential. He weighs 57 pounds, is around 1 ½ years old, and is heartworm negative and microchipped. His adoption fee is $5 since he has a sponsor and will need to go to an approved home.
Gaelic #78 – Gaelic is a male American Bulldog/Plott/English springer spaniel mix (we had him DNA tested) found as a stray at Westhills School. He was hanging around the school either waiting on someone there or he had been wandering through the area as a stray. He is good natured and a happy go lucky boy now. He was wearing a blue thick and he weighs 47 pounds and is around a year old. He is fully vetted and heartworm negative and microchipped. He needs to be the ONLY dog in your home as he is very possessive of his toys and food. His adoption fee is $75. He is currently going through Scent Training at Middle Tennessee Dog Services in Chapel Hill.
Burdock #115 – Burdock is a male adult shepherd mix found as a stray on Lynnville Hwy. He is around 2 1/2 years old. He weighs 57 pounds and appears to be housebroken. He has been neutered and microchipped, and tested heartworm positive. He is on a slow kill heartworm method here at the shelter and any medications will be sent with him upon adoption. He came in with a small female dog and may be good with another similar dog, just not a big challenging dog.
Rocket #245 – Rocket is a male pitbull mix found as a stray on Davis Street. He is brown in color and was wearing a collar with a lock on it. He is very much improved now on weight up to 53 pounds and has really come around so he is available to adopt or rescue. He has been fully vetted and is heartworm negative and microchipped.
Jupiter #257 – Jupiter was picked up on Nashville Hwy on 8-17-17. He is coming around but still growls when we try pet him. We will let him settle down and work on his confidence. He’s the grumpy old man, but he’s also happy go lucky! He is available for rescue only. He is fully vetted, heartworm negative, and microchipped. The vet said he is 8 years old, and he occasionally has a slight cough. We know it isn’t related to heartworms or kennel cough, so it’s possibly due to his age.
Mormont #283 – Mormont is our senior guy at the moment, and like his Game of Thrones name sake, he is is quickly becoming the commander of our hearts! He will be safely cared for by the vols and staff at our shelter until adoption or rescue. This old guy is estimated to be 7-8 years old by the vet, and he is heartworm positive and had a tumor which was removed when he was neutered. He is on antibiotics for the next 30 days and has been started on a slow kill heartworm method. He tested positive for erlichia also which the antibiotics are treating too. He is finished with his meds and is doing great. He weighs 50 pounds and is microchipped also.
Drogon #285 – Like his Game of Thrones namesake, Drogon is gorgeous like the breathing dragon he is named for. He has finally calmed down and there is a loyal and calmer soul inside. Reminds us of our long time boy Gator that was here. He is a gorgeous specimen of an American Staffie. He was found as a stray on Nick Poarch Road. Now that he is doing great with us he is available for rescue but not adoption yet as he is still iffy with strangers. He is a short stocky 52 pounds and has been fully vetted. He is heartworm negative and microchipped.
Tormund #293 – Like his Game of Thrones namesake, our Tormund is a red headed guy with a plan and a heart of gold. He was even found on Gold Road!! He knows that he wants a family to call his own, and we’ve joined his mission to help him find it! He was found as a stray on Gold Road and quickly took up with the folks who found him, they just could not keep him. He has a slight limp on his front left leg that we will get evaluated in the next couple of days. He is an American Bulldog mix and he weighs 42 pounds and is available on the 22nd for adoption. He is already neutered so his adoption fee will be $25 to cover his vaccinations.
Baelish #294 – Like his Game of Thrones namesake, our Baelish can be a little coy to begin with, but soon falls into step with you as your best friend. Unlike the real Baelish, our guy is true to his word, and will love you unconditionally if you give him the chance to! He appears to be a shepherd and black mouth cur mix. He was found as a stray on Heil Quaker Avenue, and weighs 48 pounds. He is heartworm negative, fully vetted and microchipped for a $75 adoption fee.
Angel #317 – Angel is a female American Bulldog mix found tied out overnight at the All About Animals Vet Clinic in Chapel Hill. She is very smart and wants to please. She is a big love bug at 65 pounds. She is highly food motivated. Good natured all around despite the many scars on her body of unknown origin and a skin condition we are getting checked out today when vetted. She is on owner stray hold until 10-12 and if not reclaimed by her owners his adoption fee will be $75 to cover her vetting. She is heartworm negative but does have demodex which we are treating with advantage multi and weekly baths.
Dash #330 – RESCUE ONLY Dash is a sweetheart of a puppy who was found as a stray on 2nd Ave North. Given his current condition he is rescue only until he starts to get better. He came in with a severe case of demodex mange and was taken to the vet immediately where it was confirmed to be demodex and medications given to place him on to help him recover.

Pirate #334 – Pirate was picked up on 2nd Ave N in Lewisburg on 10/19/17. He is an unaltered male pitbull mix. Seems to be very sweet and good. He does have some food angst toward other dogs that we will monitor. He is wearing a collar so he is on owner hold until 10/26/17. He will be available for adoption after neutering if not returned to owner.
Hopper #341 – Hopper appears to be a young Catahoula/Beagle mix found as a stray on Liberty Valley Road. He is super sweet and an escape artist. We came in to find him sitting on top of the kennels and he has since been moved to one with a top. He weighs 25 pounds and has a rescue commit once he is available so he will not be available for adoption through our facility.
