Cats are an unknown.

She is a loving, calm dog who grew up with little kids and other dogs; she's comfortable around most people but wary of strangers.

Puppy, Female
North Carolina (New 11/23/2020)

ANNABELLE is an 11 month old, 47 pound girl who has had an unfortunate beginning to her life but has overcome a great deal since she has been in rescue. She was found injured in an abandoned house where she had very little contact with people or other animals. Yet she is turning into a sweet, friendly, energetic puppy. She likes everybody but would be better with older kids, good with other dogs but plays too rough for small ones; no cats.  

ANNABELLE is now healthy, spayed, and up to date with vaccinations and preventatives. She has blossomed into a typical puppy who will need an active home with a fenced yard. Because she is still a pup all training is a work in progress but is well-started on everything she is going to have to learn in order to be a well behaved dog. Her new family will be expected to continue with positive training. If you want more information about this very special girl  There is a $300 adoption fee.

CANELO is a sweet 5 year old, 12 pound Basenji mix who is looking for a patient, loving home after living most of his life ignored in the backyard. He is warming up to gentle affection from those he trusts, but is understandably timid and standoffish with new people. His ideal home would have adults only, no other pets, and a big yard. No apartments for this guy. 

CANELO is neutered and vaccinated; he is partially housetrained but will still need some help. This guy loves to play, especially with toys and would love an active home with plenty of them! He has quite the personality and will make a wonderful pup for the right family. If you can offer him lots of love, patience, some training and have the perfect home, please call: 602-944-2440, or email:  There is a $220 adoption fee.
