Dogs available now for adoption.

O’Malley #94 - O’Malley is a male Pit Bulldog mix, black and white in color, found as a stray. He is a very high energy fun loving boy, best in a no other dog home and with someone familiar with the breed. He weighs 71 pounds. He is a WATER LOVING HOG!! Jumps right into the water spray and tries to eat it! He is adoptable now to an approved rescue only. He also loves squeaky toys. We have been working on leash training as well. He is food aggressive with strangers and will snap at you if you try to reach for his food bowl. His adoption fee is $15 as he is fully vetted now. He is heartworm positive so his rescue would need to follow up with their own vet about his treatment. He is on his 7th month of a slow kill heartworm method in the shelter and tested light positive when retested last week, so it is working!

Bella #203 - Bella was picked up on 7/10/16. She is an older Chow/Shepherd mix female. She is rescue only as she is a previous bite case at the shelter. She also had a huge mass/tumor on her rear end. Unfortunately, she also tested Positive for Heartworms on 8-30-16. We took donations for her to have the tumor removed and have been treating Heartworms with the slow kill method. She is supersweet and gets along with the other dogs, but not cats. She weighs 43 pounds. Her rescue fee is $5 as she has a sponsor for the remainder.

Delaware

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 put on 10+lbs. 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 weighs 44.5 pounds and is microchipped and heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $5 as he has a sponsor for the remainder.

Tar Heel #243 - Tar Heel is a female lab mix found as a stray on Nashville Highway in Chapel Hill. She is friendly and has gotten better with strangers not being as afraid of them anymore. High energy and a barker! Came in with the male black lab Hawkeye so she may be related to him but not bonded. She will try another dog male or female so she is very alpha and needs to either go to a monitored no dog home or torescue where she can be further evaluated and more slowly introduced to other dogs. A high energy environment like the shelter only aggravates her already heightened energy so she is our shelter tornado for the moment! She is very smart and will try to sit for a food bowl but her energy won’t let her. She does know kennel on command and so has a high drive and is food and treat motivated. Lots of potential for this girl in the right setting! She weighs 46 pounds and is microchipped and heartworm negative. Her adoption fee is partially sponsored so she is $35 to an approved adopter or rescue. If both her and Hawkeye are rescued/adopted together their fee is only $75 together.

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 females. High energy and a barker! Came in with the female black lab Tar Heel so he may be related to her but they are not bonded so can be adopted separately. 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 and is heartworm negative and microchipped. His adoption fee is $75 but if both he and TarHeel are adopted/rescued together then their fee is only $75 for both.

Drake

Gator #270 – Gator was picked up on Jackson Ave on 9/29/16. He is very friendly with people and a handsome young man. He was recently neutered so as soon as his hormones settle down we will begin testing him with the other dogs. He has been really good with young smaller children when folks have stopped by with them at the shelter, not jumping on them at all so it’s possible he was raised with small kids around at some time in his life prior to coming into the shelter. Like he knows they are more fragile than their larger humans! He weighs 58 pounds and is microchipped. He did test positive for heartworms so he has just started on his heartworm treatment. He is not good with the male dogs, trying to fight them through the kennel fencing. He will need to go to a well supervised home.

Spellbinder #291 - Spellbinder appears to be a female American Bulldog/hound mix, brown and white in color. She was picked up on Hunter Road and weighs 56 pounds. She has really come out of her shell and is now a bouncing ball of energy. She will jump first thing and we are working with her to stop this as she almost knocks us down so would a child for sure. She appears to have been a mom at some point and may have recently weaned pups upon intake, but we have had her spayed now and she is fully vetted. Her adoption fee is $75. She is microchipped and heartworm negative. She can be dominant with other dogs, especially if they growl at her as she tries to prove her alpha status. Would be best in a no dog or no challenging dog home. She loves people and wants to be right by your side when out. Would make a wonderful loving companion for someone looking for a love you to the end of time dog!

Delilah #318 - Delilah is a female lab/hound mix found as a stray on Water Street on 12-2. She is super sweet and appears to be housebroken. She has been alpha toward some of the other dogs, and it appears more she is protective of whatever human she is around. She needs to go to a no dog home or be well supervised. She was wearing a collar. She is fully vetted, microchipped, and heartworm negative. She weighs 60 pounds.

Gator

Dinah #328 - Dinah was picked up on Thomas Street on 12-16-16. She appears to be an American Bulldog mix. She is a sweetheart with people, and is very food motivated as she wolfs it down right now. She will definitely go after a cat. She has been fully vetted and was actually already spayed but had already been sedated so her adoption fee of $60 covers all that. She is heartworm negative and microchipped. She weighs 53 pounds. Adopt her with HoHo and pay only one adoption fee of $75 as one is sponsored!

Selena #46 - Selena is a female lab/American Bulldog mix found as a stray on Greenwood Road in Chapel Hill. She had been running loose for a week or more. She is black with a little white in color and she has already been spayed because has a green tattoo on her abdomen. She was taken to the vet by the lady who found her and heartworm tested and fully vaccinated, so there will be no charge to the rescue or adopter for her fee. She is fully sponsored. According to the lady who found her she would be better with older children as she seems a bit anxious with younger children who may be running around her noisily. She wants to be the boss in a household so is an alpha dog. She is heartworm negative.

Sinbad #48 - Sinbad appears to be a Mountain Curr possibly mixed with an English Bulldog as he is squater than your normal bulldog.

He had to be muzzled to be vaccinated but did fine as long as we didn’t have a leash in our hand. We will continue to evaluate him. He will be available to adopt once he accepts people more, but will be available to a rescue to continue working with hiim on 2-25 once his hold is up. He weighs 23 pounds.
