Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    My name is Nala and I was saved from my rescue along with my baby Spot that has since been adopted. I lived my whole life of 4 years tied to a tree with no vetting and very little human contact. My rescue took me to the vet and found out I was HW positive. I have finished my HW treatment and happy to say I am HW negative now. I am a sweet girl and have already got the hang of crate training and now housebroken. I am so happy to be inside a real home now where I can lay on the carpet and take a nap on the couch. I know basic commands now like sit and howdy. Now I just need to find my forever home where I will never have to worry about being ... (Read More)outdoors and unloved ever again. I am 56 pounds of pure love and joy my foster mom says. Can you help me find my forever home? I really want a home so please don't pass me by. Love, Nala (Less)

Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Tux was rescued from a local kill shelter when his time was running out. He is around one year old and is a Labrador Retriever mix. He weighs in around 55-60 lbs. Tux was adopted, but was returned because his energy level was too much for their children. Therefore, we are looking for a home for him with an active family, or ideally, with a second energetic dog. Tux has such a sweet personality and is just a great boy. He does have a shy personality, but loves belly rubs and enjoys being with people. He needs an owner who is willing to work with him, specifically on walking on leash. It's still pretty new to him and he is unsure of it. This ... (Read More)loving boy is ready to move on to his forever home. There will be an application, small adoption fee, and contract. Please contact us if you are interested in adopting Tux! (Less)

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Tootsie is a beautiful young girl, full of life, energy and heart! 2.5 yrs old, healthy, spayed, fully vetted, up-to-date on shots, on HW preventative, microchipped, and weighs about 50 lbs. American Staffordshire Terrier/Pittie,English Pointer & possibly some Lab is best guess on her mix...long legs and slender body - very attractive, athletic girl. Quite the lady...she often lays with with her paws crossed. This former death-row rescue girl is house-trained, crate-trained (she loves her crate), has attended a basic obedience class, and has good house manners. A happy girl, sweet-natured, with a lovely coat and markings, and a face that ... (Read More)will melt your heart. She loves to be close to her human and is quite a leaner. Very loyal. She has a deep bark that would encourage a would-be intruder to move on. Tootsie needs a forever person/family with patience and TIME to devote to her and consider her a family member. An experienced dog owner is preferred, as she requires firm, consistent discipline. Very smart, learns tricks quickly, and walks well on the leash with her head collar. Tootsie would make a great companion for hiking and outdoor activities. Loves to run around the dog park and fetch a tennis ball. A fenced yard is a MUST. Energetic and needs daily walks/exercise. Does well in public and with most other dogs, but does not like some dogs; she is probably best as an only dog. Untested with cats (but I suspect she would see them as toys, so no cats would be best), and although good with kids, she is strong and could inadvertently knock over a small child. Would probably be fine with older children/teens. Vet-references required. Tootsie asks a $25 adoption donation that will go to to help this organization help other homeless pets. Her extra-large crate and all supplies (leash, car harness, head collar, bark collar, toys, blankets) will go with her. Tootsie is ready to go to her forever home! Is it yours?? Please contact me if interested in giving this special girl her forever home...she will steal your heart and love you forever. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pointer in North Carolina
    Pointer Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina if they match your IifestyIe. The English Pointer is a proud, elegant hunting dog. Pointers are good with children and devoted to their families. Pointers need to be with people and need to be socialized as puppies. Some Pointers can be skittish or aloof. Pointers need plenty of exercise and activity to be happy and healthy. This breed is best for a home with lots of open land.

lnteresting Pointer Trivia Low-Cost North Carolina Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Once a Pointer has cornered its game, it will freeze in place to point out its quarry. The modern Pointer is a mixture of several breeds including Foxhounds, Greyhounds, and Bulldogs. The English Pointer as it is currently known has only been around for about eighty years. Earlier Pointers became popular in England in the seventeenth century. Pointers enjoy lounging around on upholstered furniture.
