Honey is a sweetheart and looking for a very special home. She is approximately 3 years old, and was in rough shape when she entered the shelter. She had hair loss and severe anxiety. Good nutrition has her hair looking much better and starting to fill in, though she still struggles with general anxiety. We are looking for a specific type of home that fits all of her needs, and a very specific adopter. Could that be you? Read on!
-Honey requires patience and a special person to work with her so she can begin to trust again.
-Ideally, her new owner will stay at home a lot - including working remotely, minimal travel, and generally just "around".
-She is fearful of all kennels and should therefore never be boarded or crated.
-Honey will do best in a home with no other dogs because her new owner will need to devote their attention to only her. Honey has lived in a foster home with both males and females, but she does have jealousy tendencies towards both sexes and really just wants all the attention to herself.
-Honey also needs exercise - she's a whip-smart pup and needs the mental stimulation generated by long, leisurely walks so she can smell the smells and be engaged in her surroundings.
-Honey is also a Houdini! She is incredibly smart and observant. She is always watching in the distance and looking for creative ways to escape. Please keep in
mind that she has a history of escaping. She is likely escaping because she does not fully trust humans, but with time, training, patience, consistency, and mental stimulation, we feel Honey will develop a bond with her human and be happy to stay.
- Honey may also require anxiety treatment in the future. She was recently weaned off anti-anxiety meds and appears to be handling it well, but it is also possible that future treatment would be required.
Please don't let any of this deter you from adopting her - we know her special person is out there. She is truly a sweet girl, very gentle with taking treats, and just wants a nice, quiet life.
Miss Carly Ann!!! If you are looking for the perfect relationship to include laughter, cuddles, and play - look no further! Carly Ann is a younger chow girl approximately 1.5 -2 years old looking for a furever family that has an enclosed yard and also loves to walk daily or hike. Carly Ann does expect to be the ONLY dog and has the energy and love to back up that request. Fully potty trained and doggy door savvy, she walks well on a leash and is dog neutral when being walked. Favorite pastimes are defending your yard from squirrels and large birds and butting her head into you to demand love while she gives delicate kisses. Also known to nibble ankles or arms to instigate play. This is a one of a kind chow, be prepared to fall helplessly in love and forever be smitten.
She is located in North Carolina.
Meet Maverick! This handsome chow chow is looking for his new love in life. Maverick had a very rough life to start. He has finally begun to figure out humans are OK. He definitely would do best as a companion dog. He is not the cuddly type but does enjoy attention on his terms. He will need someone that is familiar with the breed that can give him time, patience and space to warm up.
Maverick enjoys the simple things in life, a ball or bone to chew on, two meals a day and a few snacks throughout if he gets his way!
He has definitely come a long way and deserves a shot at finding a forever home to enjoy the good things (Food, toys and treats)! These are a vital part of his day to continue moving forward! He doesn’t mind other dogs and their company but prefers to play alone. No cats as to them they are squirrels and his prey drive goes in overdrive!
This sweet boy is also very smart, and eager to please with a little tasty snack for motivation. He does know sit and stay, and knows to go to kennel.
Maverick is approx 4 years old and about 55 lbs. He is fully vetted, neutered, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.
Hello pretty Zara from Dallas! Zara is about 1 1/2 years old and weighs just under 50 lbs. She is brand new to our program so we are still learning about her. So far we have learned that she loves other dogs both male and female. Stay tuned for additional updates.
Meet Briggs! This stunning 3 year old boy comes to us from OKC and weighs approx 55 lbs. He is brand new to our program so we are still learning about him.

Little Miss Lexus, or Lexi as she is known around town, is a very cute chowder puff who wants to say hello!! She’s young - less than 2, judging by her perfect pearly white teeth, and weighs in around 35 lbs. She could stand to gain a few but all in good time. She is good with other dogs, both male and female, and knows when to back down when her foster sibs tell her what’s what. She wants to play! Lots of antics and puppy play bows, but has yet to convince her foster sis Pumpkin and brother Yoshi to engage. She does well on her leashed walks. She is such a great girl! Housebroken, too!! Love what you see?! Fill out an application!!!!
Hello Phoenix.....Phoenix joined us in deplorable conditions out of the Dallas area just over a month ago. He was one of the worst cases of matting we had seen, poor health and pretty bad eyes that will most likely require entropian surgery. He is a very sweet boy but does not like taking meds well at least right now which we think is related to him being over stimulated after being left neglected for so long. He is just over 50 lbs, approx 6 years old and heartworm negative....yes heartworm negative!!!
