  • Miniature Pinscher, Chihuahua
  • Spayed/Neutered
BENNY & LOUIE -m/n, MiniaturePincscher/ChihuahuaX..dob: ~June 17, 2019 Rescued after being found in a box on someone's front porch when she went out to enjoy her morning coffee. This wasn't the 1st time, and it wouldn't be the last time, either....2 weeks later, H4S gets another call from her about a tiny adult Chihuahua who had also been abandoned-she thinks she may have seen a young couple with a backpack with this last pup about an hour before it showed up on her porch. She waited 2 days before calling me, hoping they would reappear and inquire about the dog. H4S CARes to the rescue! Benny & Louie's tails look like they had been docked at a young age with scissors, & they had no hair on their paws, indicating that they had been living in a dirty cage for a quite a while. But now, they are happy, healthy, loved, well-fed and wanting to snuggle up against your neck; these boys are a real joy. Gentle and definitely want to please. They will be ready to be an integral part of your pack on SAT/SEPT 28th, after recovering from their neuter/micro-chip surgeries. However, because of their size and breedX, H4S will not be accepting application where there will be children under the age of 10yo living in the home. We are seeking an older couple, early retiree or work-from-home person who will be able to house train this pup with regular outside visits for proper daily exercise and potty breaks. Not just someone wanting a fur-kid to come home to after 9>10hrs at work & time spent commuting. These guys deserve a quality life of joy and companionship in exchange for their devotion. These pups are in & will remain in foster care until their fur-ever home has been approved. Transport is available to: DC/MD/DE/NJ=$125 & $140>Jericho(LongIsland), RyeNY, JohnstonRI, ManchesterNH & BurlingtonVT every Saturday via HAPPY DOGS OR LIFESAVERS Rescued Pet Transports & $140 to Buffalo/Rochester/Syracuse 2X/mo via SAVE THEM ALL & LIFESAVERS commercial rescued pet transport services. More pix and videos & testing with cats available upon request. READY TO SHARE LOVE & LIFE's ADVENTURES with delivery/pick-up date on or after SATURDAY/SEPT 28th. A secured fenced-in back yard is a PLUS! Commitment to daily walks 2X every day is required for the applicant to be approved. NO TETHERING/TIE-OUTS or ELECTRIC fences will be accepted. Adoption fee: $350 OR $650/both (comes with all medical paperwork from day #1 with Howlin4Spirit, includes vet surgical notes), neutered(scheduled for SEPT 19th), micro-chipped, utd on all 1st yr vaccines (Rabies, Parvo/Distemper/Lepto, Bordatella), Parasite-free & current on monthly heart worm and flea/tick prevention, new Martingale collar and matching 6' leash, Kong or Nylabone chew toy, beef knee cap bone, Rabies and current health certificate, 'SUPER PUPPY' training booklet, 'RESCUED DOGS ROCK' car magnet & 3lbs of current dry food(Tractor Supply Store's '4Health' Salmon & potato).

 . BAYLEE .  . BAYLEE .  . BAYLEE .
  • Beagle
  • Spayed/Neutered
BAYLEE dob: ~12/28/2007 pb spayed female Beagle(originally adopted from Charlotte Humane Society 6yrs prior to coming to Howlin4Spirit. Rescued by H4S CARes when past owner had a baby and then decided they no longer had time to give Baylee a 'quality' life. Granted, Baylee's life consisted, mostly, of short potty breaks from life on the couch. At H4S, she has learned what a quality living can be when someone cares enough to bring her back into nature and not just feed her treats all the time. Baylee has lost 3 lbs in just a short period of time because she no longer lounges inside all day long. Being around others who are active and short walks along wooded trails with her person & other pups has renewed her spirit. Very sweet, and when she trusts your intentions-being given away after 6yrs can be heartbreaking for some, she will show you her devotion and unconditional love, in return. HOUSEBROKEN, walks well on-leash, may not be a good fit around very young or loud children...best if older respectful children living in the household. Likes going for car rides, being included. Though, can be possessive of treats(diets will bring on 'a cranky attitude') around other pups vying for the same. A bit stubborn about going out for 'last piddle call' as she seems to prefer to decide that on her own, but is acclimating to a more accurate routine(I believe they had a doggie door, in her past life). Gentle and calm. EZ going. NOT a jogger! But, would do best with slow, leisurely walks as her daily exercise and being an integral part of the goings-on. adoption fee: $95(includes all medical paperwork from past owner and H4S, health cetificate, Rabies certificate, spayed, micro-chip, vaccines utd(3yr Rabies, Bordatella and Parvo-Distemper/Lepto), parasite-free, current on monthly heart worm and flea/tick prevention, new Martingale collar and matching 6' leash, beef knee cap bone, 'RESCUED DOGS ROCK' car magnet, 2 'pet alert' wallet cards). This pup is in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until her fur-ever family/home is approved. To apply to adopt 1 of these VERY SWEET little ones, or both(adoption fee is discounted if you'd like to adopt both), please send us your completed(we require EMAIL ADDRESSES for your personal references) application provided at: www.howlin4spirit.org/adoption-application/ to howlin4spirit@gmail.com. These pups are in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until they have recovered from their surgeries and their pre-approved adoptive family/person is approved. Transport is available to DC, VA, MD, PA, NJ, Long IslandNY, RI, NH, VT every SATURDAY and 2Xs/monthly to upstateNY(Buffako/Rochester/Syracuse/Albany). Fees are: $125 from western NC as far as Vince Lombardi svc plaza/NJTnpk, mm 115 and $140 to all other destinations.

  • Pointer, Shar-Pei
  • Spayed/Neutered
MAXWELL(aka MAX), dob: 12/05/2019-m/n, Pointer(Shar-Pei like ears=so, maybe!?) currently weighs 31lbs(9/3/19). Will be around 40lbs as an adult. RESCUED when his owner(past neighbor of ours) came to our door begging us to take him in because he 'couldn't afford to feed him anymore'. H4S gave MAXWELL his first set of puppy boosters and took him to have his Rabies vax given at Animal Control, back in April, because his owner couldn't afford it. Then, they moved and they show up at the end of August wanting to relinquish him to us. Of course, H4S is there for this sweet, VERY KID-FRIENDLY boy. Our hearts go out to the young daughter(12yo) who raised Maxwell from a small pup, gave him soooo much love & leadership, only to go of to school one day and return to find he was no longer in her life. My heart cries for these children, whose only good thing in their home life is their pet that they cherish, whom the parent disposes of on a whim(covered in tattoos, cigarette hanging out of his mouth, and the residual bad breath from the 'binge' he and wifey had been on. MAXWELL is a very sweet, patient and loving cuddler. He is HOUSEBROKEN, walks well on-leash, crate-trained but prefers to snuggle in bed with you. DEVOTED & WANTS TO PLEASE HIS PERSON! Would make an excellent companion for a family with children(any age) and a fenced-in back yard. Also, would make an excellent companion for a avid walker, hiker, jogger. Maxwell has been hungry in his past, so has shown some food aggression towards other dogs-never touches, just growls and lunges forward as a warning(but, this will work itself out as he learns there is no competition for all the food he needs), so it would be best to feed him separately at first, if there are other dogs living in the home. Maxwell is now neutered, micro-chipped, utd on Bordatella, Parvo/Distemper/Lepto and Rabies vaccines, on heart worm and flea/tick prevention and will be ready to make your world a better, more loving place to be on SAT/SEPT 7th. Adoption fee: $150(includes all vetting, health certificate, 3lbs of current dry food-Tractor Supply's '4health' -salmon & potato, Martingale collar & matching 6' leash, beef knee cap bone, 'RESCUED DOGS ROCK' car magnet, 2 pet alert wallet cards and 'SUPER PUPPY -How to Train the best dog you'll ever have' booklet, Nylabone or Kong chew toy). For more information and pix/videos, please email: howlin4spirit@gmail.com To apply to adopt this sweet boy in need of love, respect and a warm, safe place to call 'home', please send us your completed adoption application which is located at: www.howlin4spirit.org/adoption-application/

  • Black Mouth Cur, Feist
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
SWEET Sadie(19lbs of BlkMouthCur & FeistX) came to Howlin4Spirit when her 'past 'owner' was arrested for animal cruelty and hoarding animals. We truly do not believe that Sadie had been at this place for long, nor was she mistreated nor neglected...she was one of the luckier ones. She was in good health, happy, healthy, well-socialized and well fed. H4S, our advising vet and Animal Control all believe that Sadie is just 2yo, so we have given her birth date as the day Howlin4Spirit sprung her from our local Animal Control, within 2 days after she was brought in. Sadie is housebroken, crate-trained for nights, walks OK on leash, gets along well with other dogs and kids(will test with cats, upon request). LOVES her person, snuggling and playing with all the other dogs(young and old/best with those her size or bigger) at H4S CARes. She is spayed, micro-chipped, utd on Bordatella, Parvo/Distemper/Lepto and Rabies vaccines, on heart worm and flea/tick prevention and will be ready to make your world a better, more loving place to be on SAT/SEPT 7th. Adoption fee: $150(includes all vetting, health certificate, 3lbs of current dry food-Tractor Supply's '4health' -salmon & potato, Martingale collar & matching 6' leash, beef knee cap bone, 'RESCUED DOGS ROCK' car magnet, 2 pet alert wallet cards and 'SUPER PUPPY -How to Train the best dog you'll ever have' booklet, Nylabone or Kong chew toy).

GUS(adopted) & ZENA were rescued from a kill-shelter in western NC....dob: May 23, 2019. SMART and soooo want to please, so should be easy to train!!! Their mama is a BlkLab/StaffordshireX but daddy's lineage is a HUGE question mark. BOTH pups look exactly like their mother. She weighs ~45lbs, so it's probably safe to say that Gus will be ~55>60lbs and Zena will be ~45lbs as mature adults. Both pups are very well-socialized with humans and other dogs, so are 'respectful child-friendly'. They are scheduled for their spay/neuter surgeries on FRI/Aug 30th & will be ready to go to their pre-approved adoptive homes on SAT/SEPT 7th. They are smart and playful, happy little spirits who will greatly be an asset to any sized family. Adoption fee: $225(includes spay/neuter, micro-chip, 3 puppy boosters, 1 Lepto, 1 Bordatella and Rabies vaccines, all medical paperwork from day#1 with Howlin4Spirit including our vet's surgical notes, Rabies and health certificates, plus 3lbs bag of current dry food-Tractor Supply Store's '4health' slamon and potato, Kong OR Nylabone chew toy, beef knee cap bone, Martingale collar and match 6' nylon leash, 'RESCUED DOGS ROCK' car magnet and 'SUPER PUPPY' training booklet).

  • Chihuahua
  • Spayed/Neutered
ROCKY-Chihuahua(dob: May, 2009, ~6lbs), CHLOE-ChiFeistX(dob: Dec, 2012, ~11lbs), & their daughter, MONI-ChiFeistX(dob: Dec, 2014, ~7lbs) were victims of a repetitive eviction cycle. Their owner was no longer able to care for them properly, though it is quite obvious that they were loved and well-cared for throughout their earliest years. They are housebroken and the girls sleep well together in their crate at night, as the girls are not great fans of sharing a bed with other dogs. Rocky, on the other hand, will share a bed or will be HAPPY to 'sleep between the sheets with his person' and to heck with who else is in the bed. The closer he can get, the better he sleeps/more secure he feels. But, is learning to be happy in his own crate, at night. Chloe is obviously the boss of the 2 girls with Moni being a bit shy, though Rocky is the BIG BOSS(yet, the smallest of the 3) & the most PLAYFUL and a real snuggler. They are ALL VERY SWEET, gentle and social with humans, though a little timid until they learn to trust. They mingle quite nicely but the girls tend to stay in the background whenever the bigger kids are rough-housing/running around the yard very fast...UPDATE: Rocky will grab a leaf and run as fast as he can, hoping someone will chase him. Rocky is the most adventurous. Roaming about to see what's happening, though never getting involved in playing with the other pups. He prefers the more gentle 'one-on-one' sessions with his person, retrieving toys, balls, OR being chased by the littler ones, etc. These 3 happy little ones are spayed & neutered, micro-chipped, current on heart worm and flea/tick prevention, parasite-free, healthy(comes with a current health certificate and all medical paperwork from day #1 at Howlin4Spirit CARes) and happy, but they are missing their own person to love UNconditionally and a place to call 'home'. They were raised by an woman who had no children, so we will not consider applicants where there are young children(under 12yo) living in the home. We are seeking an early-retired or calm, gentle work-from-home woman or couple aged 35>65yo, for their futures. H4S is requiring that all applicants MUST have a fenced in back yard OR a secured dog play area attached to their place of residence-in the case of condos, apartments or townhouses(screened-in outdoor patios), as these kids are not very leash-friendly. Though, we have no doubt they would be more compliant in a less-populated(dogs) environment. They appear to be used to being carried, or walking along on their own in a safe, secured environment.

  • Chihuahua, Feist
  • Spayed/Neutered
ROCKY-Chihuahua(dob: May, 2009, ~6lbs), CHLOE-ChiFeistX(dob: Dec, 2012, ~11lbs) & daughter, MONI-ChiFeistX(dob: Dec, 2014, ~7lbs) were victims of a repetitive eviction cycle. Their owner was no longer able to care for them properly, though it is quite obvious that they were loved and well-cared for throughout their earliest years. They are housebroken and the girls sleep well together in their crate at night, as the girls are not great fans of sharing a bed with other dogs. Rocky, on the other hand, will share a bed or will be HAPPY to 'sleep between the sheets with his person' and to heck with who else is in the bed. The closer he can get, the better he sleeps/more secure he feels. But, is learning to be happy in his own crate, at night. Chloe is obviously the boss of the 2 girls with Moni being a bit shy, though Rocky is the BIG BOSS(yet, the smallest of the 3) & the most PLAYFUL and a real snuggler. They are ALL VERY SWEET, gentle and social with humans, though a little timid until they learn to trust. They mingle quite nicely but the girls tend to stay in the background whenever the bigger kids are rough-housing/running around the yard very fast...UPDATE: Oliver gets right in there and will grab a leaf and run as fast as he can, hoping someone will chase him. Rocky is the most adventurous. Roaming about to see what's happening, though never getting involved in playing with the other pups. He prefers the more gentle 'one-on-one' sessions with his person, retrieving toys, balls, OR being chased by the littler ones, etc. These 3 happy little ones are spayed & neutered, micro-chipped, current on heart worm and flea/tick prevention, parasite-free, healthy(comes with a current health certificate and all medical paperwork from day #1 at Howlin4Spirit CARes) and happy, but they are missing their own person to love UNconditionally and a place to call 'home'. They were raised by an woman who had no children, so we will not consider applicants where there are young children(under 12yo) living in the home. We are seeking an early-retired or calm, gentle work-from-home woman or couple aged 35>65yo, for their futures. H4S is requiring that all applicants MUST have a fenced in back yard OR a secured dog play area attached to their place of residence-in the case of condos, apartments or townhouses(screened-in outdoor patios), as these kids are not very leash-friendly. Though, we have no doubt they would be more compliant in a less-populated(dogs) environment. They appear to be used to being carried, or walking along on their own in a safe, secured environment. They ride very well in the car, and eat beside the others with no issues. These pups are in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until their adopter is approved. We will be happy to provide more pictures and videos of them, &, will test with cats, upon request.

Crate trained, rides well, walks well on-leash, gets along well with all dogs and older respectful & responsible children (must be 10y+).

She just wants to be with her PEEPS! MUST have a secured fenced-in backyard (NO ELECTRIC FENCES=these are NOT compatible for scent hounds!) OR past INSIDE beagle experience and a regular walking/running/hiking regime and be committed to an 'ON-LEASH ONLY' exercise regime. Homes with children are REQUIRED to have a vinyl/stockade fenced-in backyard...NO EXCEPTIONS! This pup is in & will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until her fur-ever home is approved. Transport is available via 3 Rescued Pet transport svcs and their fees are: $125 from western NC to as far N as Long Island and Vince Lombardi svc plaza/NJTnpk, and $140 to all points along the I-95 corridor as far as ManchesterNH/BurlingtonVT & Albany/RochesterNY.

WESTERN NC INQUIRIES, ONLY! We love this gentle soul, and feel he'd do best with a 1-on-1 situation, rather than a sanctuary with ~45 mostly smaller breeds(mostly Beagles). Cache deserves more peace in his life! CACHE dob: March 26, 2013-m/n, Husky/FoxhoundX-50lbs..rescued along with his litter mates and mother, after they were abandoned in a rural farming community in western NC. Gentle, loving and devoted. HOUSEBROKEN. RIDES WELL. WALKS WELL ON-LEASH. Gets along with all gentle, non-aggressive, well-socialized dogs of all genders and breeds. NEVER confrontational. He would make an EXCELLENT COMPANION for an experienced dog-person who has a love for the outdoors and understands the needs of a larger houndX who need to be at one with Mother Nature, in a safe environment. So, REQUIRES a decent-sized 5' fenced-in area(NOT a dog lot nor kennel/ABSOLUTELY NO dog lots, kennels, NOR TIE-OUTS-we research this!!). Seeking an active early retiree or work-from-home person 35>65yo). Not used to being around children, so an older(12y+) dog-experienced, respectful child might be a good match (he's shy and prefers his crate to being over-stimulated). Would LOVE to sleep beside his person in a dog bed, on the couch or beside you in bed and to be an integral part of your daily activities...gardening, hiking, meandering, hanging out on the deck soaking up the sun's rays. An active yet quiet life is what Cache needs...do you think this boy fit your needs/lifestyle? Adoption fee: $95(to the RIGHT person who matches CACHE's needs). UTD on all yrly vax, monthly heart worm and flea/tick prevention, neutered, micro-chipped. H4S will be happy to send you more pix of Cache in action, upon request! To apply to adopt Cache, please complete the application provided at: www.howlin4spirit.org/adoption-adoption/...you must copy an paste the app in to a new email, then go to the end of each question and type in your answers...email to: howlin4spirit@gmail.com at your earliest convenience, to help your chances of being approved ahead of any other potential applicants.

Thank you, for caring enough to consider adopting a rescued pup in need of love, respect and a warm place to lay it's head fur-ever. This pup is in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until their adoptive person/family has been approved, and will then be ready for transport on the following Saturday(Saturday delivery ONLY). Upon request, we will be happy to send you more videos and pictures of this pup interacting with her H4S buddies, to help you get a better understanding of their personality and activity level, and how they interact with their people and other pups. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------CESAR(dob:10/26/2009 + weighs 45lbs) was originally rescued from Rutherford County, NC's high-kill Animal Control (on 12/28/2011) by a long-time animal advocate + volunteer, whom recently passed away leaving 14 dogs behind. Howlin4Spirit stepped up and took in 3 of her precious ones. CEASAR was outside in a fenced-in area with Snookie, a very sweet overweight female RottieX, whom he had the pleasure of keeping company and helped protect Miss Pat(single senior) from anyone trying to come onto her property while walking to shop at Walmart. While Sophie is rather BIG and can be a bit scary-looking to strangers. Cesar is neither scary nor aggressive, in any way. So, they made a good team. He gets along well with Howlin4Spirit's friendly and spirited 45+ dogs running freely on 5+ fenced-in acres, daily. He is a DEVOTED COMPANION. NOT to be mistaken for a 'yard ornament' nor laundry room occupant! He LOVES to be with his person, eat, sleep and follow his person around while doing all outdoor chores, laundry, cooking, taking walks in the woods, etc. He gets along well with other dogs and cats, but prefers being one of 1, 2 or 3, at most. He needs his person to take time to love on him, sit quietly with him in the woods on their morning walks and on the couch in the evenings. He will be by your side the entire way! EXTREMELY HAPPY disposition, DEVOTED to his person, and LOVES the outdoors! He would do well in an apartment BUT ONLY if the adopter is committed to a 3Xday=1mi walking regime, OR in home with a secured fenced-in yard . We will not be accepting any applications where there are children under the age of 10yo living in the home, unless they are respectful and experienced with Beagles. We are SEEKING to place Cesar, PREFERABLY, in a home with an active retiree OR work-from-home MAN OR WOMAN 45>65yo. CESAR is just 7+yo and deserves a devoted person who will be there for him, who is able to fill his life with love, respect and companionship, NOT just someone to come home to when the work day or when party is over. HE DESERVES MUCH MORE than the precarious situation he rescued from! Adoption fee: $95 includes neuter, micro-chip, Parvo-Distemper-Lepto & Bordatella and 1 yr Rabies vaccination, parasite- free, current on monthly heart worm and flea/tick prevention, Martingale collar and 6' leash & current health certificate (issued within 3 days prior to transport). Where there is a scent hound or guardian breed being considered for adoption, & in homes where older respectful children reside or will be visiting, a secured(not electric) fenced-in yard is required. All potential adopters are required to be at least 25 yrs old and complete the application below, at your earliest convenience, to help secure the pup of your choice. PLEASE, state 1st choice and 2nd choice pups in case someone else's prior application has been approved before yours! Upon receipt of your application, we will acknowledge your application in an email and immediately send out a questionnaire to your 3 personal references. To help your chances of adopting the pup of your 1st choice, be sure to contact/ask all references to reply at their most earliest convenience. Also, give your vet's office permission to release your information to Howlin4Spirit. We will be contacting everyone within 2 business days. Upon approval of this adoption, & to hold the dog/pup of your choice, we require the pup's adoption fee to be sent to our secure PayPal.com acct at: howlin4spirit@gmail.com Upon receipt of the adoption fee, we will send you the adoption contract and all pertinent information you will need to be ready for your pup's arrival, and reserve your pup's space on 'Save Them All' OR 'Happy Dogs' next available transport(SATURDAY delivery ONLY). Their transport fee is $125 to all points as far N as NYC and LI, and $140 to all points N of NYC as far as Manchester, NH and Syracuse & Albany, NY, to be paid by the adopter to the transport svc who serves your area. 9/14/19 11:25 AM
