Thunder :South Carolina



Name: Thunder
Date of Birth and/or Age: 7YO, neutered
Current Location: Greenwood, South Carolina

Brief Summary of the Situation:
Thunder is a 7 year old, neutered Shiloh Shepherd that is looking for a foster or a new home, ideally before December. 
  • Thunder loves his people, wants a lot of attention, and loves to be pet. He is on the lazy side and not very playful.   
  • He is very protective of his home and his people, so care must be taken to introduce him to new people and animals. 
  • He has lived with a small dog previously and a cat. He does not have any prey drive. 
  • His reaction to another large dog is unknown. 
  • He is great on walks and will walk right by your side. 
  • Due to his protective and territorial nature, introductions to new people and/or animals should be slow and would be best on neutral ground. He will react and fence fight with another dog if he sees one walking by his home. 
  • He has no reported bite history, but he will lunge.
  • He does not like to be handled at the vet and at the groomer's. Because of this, his coat is currently shaved. 
  • He has no known health issues except perhaps a little arthritis or joint pain. Short walks are best. 
  • An ideal home would be filled with patience, some experience with this type of temperament, and perhaps the help of a trainer/behaviorist.

Paxi :New York State



Updates: 11/18/2020 ADOPTED

Name: Paxi
Date of Birth and/or Age: 5yo
Current Location: Norwich NY

Brief Summary of the Situation:

Paxi is almost 5years old. She is spayed and is up to date on her vaccines. She is being rehomed because she does not get along with another female dog in the home. You must be able to pick her up in person. She suffers from some anxiety and we will not traumatize her with a commercial transport method. She needs a quiet home where someone is usually there....either works from home or is retired. She has a facial issue, called wry bite. Her teeth and upper muzzle are very out of whack......her owner says it doesn’t interfere with her ability to eat. She is a very sweet girl and needs a calm quiet home where she can relax. Older kids are ok.....she loves them and loves to play, just no babies or toddlers. Ideally no other dogs or cats, though she may accept a large male dog. She has not lived with cats.....so definitely no cats.  

She will come with her slow feed dish, soft crate, stuffed beaver and a blanket. 

If you are interested in adopting adorable and sweet Paxi, please fill out our adoption application.
