Rascal

10/2/2017
Age: Young Female
Breed: Sun Conure
Rascal is a beautiful bird and was easy to handle and talked before his “puberty”. Now he is a little difficult and needs either more one-on-one or other bird friends. Both of which I do not have.

Cassidy

10/3/2017
Age: Adult Female
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Cassidy is about 5-6 years old and a spayed female. She loves to sleep under the covers next to you in your bed. She has been vet checked and healthy. My roommate rescued her several years ago, however she is moving out on the 15th, & is unable to take the cats with her, & I have dogs who don’t like the cats, so it is imperative that these cats either get placed in a foster homes or adopted

Archer

10/6/2017
Age: Young Male
Breed: German Shepherd
Archer is a great dog with a lot of energy. He definitely needs space to run around and love and attention. I am unable to provide him a backyard with space to run. I live in a small condo and because of my jobs he’s unable to get out and roam a lot during the day. I also have a cat and she is very afraid of Archer. This is my main concern for why I cannot keep him. I have had my car for many years and her being uncomfortable really makes it hard for me to keep Archer.

NoName

10/11/2017
Age: Young Male
Breed: Lab/Black and Tan Coonhound
My husband found him and his buddy on the side of the road, except his buddy had been hit by a car and didn’t make it. He is deaf and will need to have a companion and someone who knows how to handle special needs dogs. He’s a sweet dog that just wants to be loved and cared for. He needs someone that will have patience with him and work with him on his manners. He seems to do well with my 4 year old, he just likes to jump to show his excitement. Not sure about other animals, like cats and such.

10/15/2017
Age: Young Female
Breed: Rotti/Pug Mix
Sweet 9 month old medium sized female puppy with rotweiller coloration and a pug coat/curly tail. Extremely energetic, house trained, knows basic commands, and very sweet. She does well playing with larger dogs but may be overwhelming for a smaller dog. Her absolute only fault is jumping when excited. She needs an active home with puppy toys and someone willing to give her love and attention.

Josie

10/15/2017
Age: Young Female
Breed: Anatolian Shepherd
Josie is a very friendly and gentle dog, and she does well with kids. She is off to a good start of becoming a livestock guardian. Unfortunately she began attacking our free ranging poultry. She would most likely do a great job if you have sheep or goats to protect, but at this point she’s not a good mix for poultry. She stays outside all the time. She’s still growing, but we don’t think she’ll be as large as a typical Anatolian female, probably between 80-100 lbs.

Opal

10/15/2017
Age: Young Female
Breed: Tabby
Some issues that have made people apprehensive on adopting her is that she is not particularly fond of being held or getting her nails cut. She likes to scratch the corners of sofas and she also sheds quite a bit of fur. If someone could look past these minor flaws, they can see that Opal is a lover. She likes to sit in your lap anywhere you sit down. She loves being scratched behind the ears but doesn’t like it if you scratch anywhere on her back. She also doesn’t like to be around other pets.

He is like her baby but she’s to young and busy with school and activities to give him the care and attention that he needs.

Buddy

11/2/2017
Age: Young Male
Breed: Pot Bellied Pig
Buddy is a sweet boy. He just turned 2. He’s great with kids. He might be a bit shy at first. I taught him to sit. He loves his belly and head scratched. One of his spots kind of looks like a foot and one like a heart. Recently divorced single mom, working full time. I’m not able to give him the attention he needs, and it is financially difficult to support his care. He needs a good loving home. This is very difficult for me, but i know this is best for him. Thank you for your time.

Marshmallow

11/4/2017
Age: Adult Female
Breed: Pitbull
She is a great dog. She knows how to sit, down, shake, roll over. She goes potty well and is a great cuddler.
However, she was abused in the past and is very defensive. She snaps when people are in her “space”. She did this to 10 year old child. However, she didn’t bite him or anything.
I have about a month to find Marshmallow a new home. I am scheduled to deploy, so if I don’t find someone that has the time and resources to help her, she’ll have to be put down. 🙁
I’m in desperate need.

Brody

11/6/2017
Age: Adult Male
Breed: Rat Terrier/Chihuahua
Hi! My name is Brody. I am a spunky and smart 7 year old rat terrier/chihuahua mix. Sadly, I am losing my companion and sister dog to bone cancer. My Mom and Dad don’t think I would do well on my own while they’re at work all day.
Although I’ve tolerated her well, I am not too fond of the little human that they brought home a couple of years ago. I love to be loved and would thrive in a home without small children and someone that has a lot of affection to give.

Ming Ming

11/7/2017
Age: Young Female
Breed: Chow
Because of health reasons I cannot take care of our baby. She is a little over six months and honestly is one of the sweetest dogs we have ever had. This is the first one we have to surrender and it is really a heartbreaking decision. We have tried other avenues and asked family/friends but everyone is just too involved with “life”. She does not have an aggressive bone in her body. She is a love bug.

Shadow

11/7/2017
Age: Adult Male
Breed: Lab Mix
Shadow was a runaway on Fourth of July and we have been fostering him since. Shadow truly is the sweetest and most loving dog we have ever been around. He’s great with other pets and children. His only downfall is wanting to be with someone. Due to our work schedules and kids sports schedule, He has to remain in a crate at our house a majority of the day or his separation anxiety gets the best of him. Shadow would be the perfect cuddle bug for someone who is home more of the time than not.

Lucy is about 4/5 years old and is very loving, every time I sit down, she’s in my lap! She’s short haired and very soft. I call her a Tuxedo color, mostly black with white paws and a cute white stripe down her nose that explodes into her white tummy. She’s a medium size girl, likes to go outside, but stays mostly in the house. I adopted her from Walton Co. Shelter when she was young. I have to move soon and cannot take her. I’m hoping to find her a good home. She would be good with kids.

Princess

11/8/2017
Age: Adult Female
Breed: cat
Princess is a sweet little kitty that weighs about six pounds. She is full grown. Loves to get in your lap and is well mannered. She is fluffy, mostly black with white whiskers and paws. She needs a home where she won’t be picked on by other kitties. She probably wouldn’t mind a sweet dog also in the home. She likes to go outside, but mostly is an inside girl. I adopted her about 5 years ago when a tiny baby and sad to say my other kitties beat up on her cause she’s little I guess.

Piggy Boo

11/15/2017
Age: Young Male
Breed: Pot belly pig
I love my pig so much. Its breaking my heart to give him up. I’m crying as I write this. I got my pig off CL. Someone didn’t want him. I paid 300 for him. It was love at first sight. I live in a town home. Don’t have much of a yard work 12hrs a day. But the only only reason I need to re-home him is that he doesn’t like no one but me at this moment. He will attack my son. He will charge him and bite. He loves women. But not so much men. But with some training I’m sure he could love men. I work 60hr.

Ink

11/15/2017
Age: Young Male
Breed: Blue Heeler Mix
Ink is a good dog and will probably be highly adoptable. But he needs something different than we can provide. He needs an active household with no young children. He’s very high energy and it is just too much for a young child. He loves other dogs but because of his never flagging energy they often find him overwhelming after a while. He needs a job, or a focus.
