Sage

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! His big birthday bash is this Sat 3-18 at the shelter from 9am-12pm.

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 #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 needs to be the only dog in a home with no other dogs involved. He absolutely loves people and wants to be your one and only companion. This sweetheart needs a home of his own! He was adopted out the end of February, but the new owner failed to keep him up, placed him in a crate with another dog where he immediately fought, and then dumped him in a nearby shelter. He was returned in a state where he has scars and scabs all over him. We are treating him with antibiotics now.

Rosemary

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.

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 is not good with other dogs and an approved home is a must for him. He weighs 58 pounds and is microchipped. He did test positive for heartworms so he is on a slow kill heartworm treatment. He will need to go to a well supervised home. His adoption fee is $75.

Basil

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. She has been fine with the cats here, however when a potential adopter took her home she went after one of their outdoor cats according to them. Since we have no confirmation of this we are stating that an adopter with cats would need to monitor her. She is fine with the ones here even when loose up front.

Meatloaf #53 – Meatloaf is a male possibly Jack Russell/Beagle mix found as a stray on Pinecone Drive with a female dog. She is being returned to owner but the lady said this one has been around the area for a few days. He is leery of people and is going to take some work to gain his trust. He has become more trusting since he first came in but is still rescue only right now. He may be available to adopt once he accepts people more, but will be available to a rescue to continue working with him on 2-25 once his hold is up. He weighs 23 pounds. He has been fully vetted and is $70 to rescue only right now. He is heartworm positive, and will be started on a slow heartworm kill method here at the shelter. He is microchipped.

Anise

Patrick #77 - Patrick is a male shepherd/lab mix found as a stray on Bradford Road on 3-3. He is tan and white in color and is underweight at 46 pounds. He is very food anxious and we have him on scheduled feedings to help him. He is super friendly and loves petting and treats. He would probably not be good for a home with small children as he does jump up on you and could knock young ones over. He was fine with the shelter cats. He is alpha so he needs to be the only dog in your home or with a non alpha other dog. He is neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $75.

Gaelic #78 - Gaelic is a male American Bulldog mix found as a stray at Westhills School. He was hanging around the school either waiting on someone there or he had been wandering through the area as a stray. He is good natured and a happy go lucky boy now. He was wearing a blue thick and he weighs 47 pounds. He is fully vetted and heartworm negative and microchipped. He does try to be alpha so is not good with a dog that challenges or gets in his face. His adoption fee is $75.

Darby #80 - Darby is a male American Bulldog mix, black and white in color, found as a stray on Agent Road. He is a little timid but wags his tail with kind words. He is a very sweet boy. He is a little on the thin side weighing 60 pounds right now so should be a big boy once he puts on a little weight. He has been fully vetted and is heartworm negative and microchipped. His adoption fee is $75. He’s a great boy but very high food angst right now.

Darby

Valera and her pups #98 - Valera is a very sweet pitbull mix found as a stray with her 2 6-7 week old pups on Franklin Avenue. She is a very sweet grey and white girl weighing only 40.5 pounds.

She and her pups will continue treatment here until they are pulled by rescue.

Basil #118 - Basil is an adult male american bulldog mix found as a stray on Highland Avenue. He is good natured but the lady who found him said he tore a hole in her garage door trying to get out.
