  • Beagle
  • Spayed/Neutered
RESCUED, from under a bridge in a rural farming community in western NC. HANDSOME purebred Beagles: BRISCOE(adopted), ANDY & BARNEY(adopted) had been seen/heard running in the woods, hunting and baying for well over a month. They had been taking shelter under a bridge and living off scraps the local folks were leaving out for them. Obviously, they had been abandoned/dumped by their past owner in the area. A bit skinny, skittish and tired, but otherwise in pretty good health. So, they must be decent 'pleasure hunters', but not good enough for past owner to want to keep feeding them. They are ALL very sweet and friendly, but hand-shy of humans, so this says a lot about their past owner/life. They want to trust, and are very happy to hang out with their person when they are certain that you/their human are trustworthy and mean them no harm/pain, ALL are outgoing, happy and have a sweet, gentle demeanor, & they LOVE to run & play!!! ANDY: dob 08/22/13-10" tri-colored(tan and black with white), weighs 16lbs Will make excellent pet for any single person or early retirees, or small families with respectful children and a secured fenced-in backyard. This pup is in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until their fur-ever person(s)/family have been approved. At which time, we require the full adoption fee via paypal.com and will arrange for your new fur-child's transport via Happy Dogs OR Lifesavers Rescued Pet Transport service to points along the eastern seaboard as far as Manchester, NH(they deliver to: VA, DC, MD, DE, NJ=NJTnpk>Vince Lombardi svc plaza, Long Island, RyeNY, JohnstonRI, ManchesterNH and AlbanyNY, as well as AllentownPA and then down the I-81S corridor>WythevilleVA).

  • Chihuahua, Feist
  • Spayed/Neutered
Ghita-ChiFeistX(dob: Dec, 2014, ~8lbs) is the shyest, and her parents Oliver-Chihuahua(dob: May, 2009, ~7lbs) & Matilda-ChiFeistX(Dec, 2012, ~12lbs), 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 earlier years. The girls are all bonded but the girls are especially bonded and it is H4S's hope to place the girls OR all 3 together, if at all possible. They are family! &, they are housebroken and the girls sleep well together in their crate at night(they seem to like being snuggled together for safety/routine's sake & comfort) as the girls are not great fans of sharing a bed with other dogs. Oliver, on the other hand, is a 'sleep between the sheets with his person kinda guy' and to heck with who else is in the bed. The closer he can get, the better he sleeps/more secure he feels. Matilda is obviously the boss of the 2 girls, though Oliver is the BIG BOSS(yet, the smallest of the 3) when they are all together. They are ALL VERY SWEET, gentle and social with humans, though a little timid until they learn to trust. They mingle quite nicely but tend to stay to the side whenever the bigger kids are rough-housing so as to stay out of the action. Preferring to meander the grounds or snooze under a shady tree together. Oliver 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, 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 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 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. Ride well in the car, but they are protective of their food when other dogs are around...all can be 'little piggies', IF allowed! 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. If you are interested in adopting 1, 2 or all 3 fur-kids, please send us your completed application provided at: www.howlin4spirit.org/adoption-application/ to howlin4spirit@gmail.com Adoption fees: $95 each Transport to points along the Eastern Seaboard including DC/MD/DEL/NJ/NY-$125 & -$140 to RyeNY, JohnstonRI, ManchesterNH, BurlingtonVT, PA(Allentown>Hbg & I-81/South along the Shenandoah ValleyMD/WVa/VA) & Long Island(Jericho). & Rochester-Syracuse(2X/mo). IF the 2 girls OR all 3 go to the same adopter, they can ride together in LG crate for 1 price.

  • Spayed/Neutered
Chickory, Chicka, Cheddar(adopted) and Crockett (dob: September 30, 2018) were rescued from an 'unwanted litter' situation at 5.5mo in Rutherford Co, NC. Their mother was a 14lb tan & white Feist(look it up!) and their daddy was a 65lb Boxer/LabradorRtvrX. Yep! You read that right! Past owner showed me pix of their mama(sadly, she was stolen just after she was spayed) but Howlin4Spirit did get to meet their daddy(nice, EZ-going & friendly fellow). They were loved and cared for in their original home but never allowed indoors. Well-socialized with people/older children(8+yo) and other dogs. They will most likely be around 35lbs as adults, since their mama was so tiny which will keep them quite a bit smaller than their daddy. Crockett, Chickory and Chika look most like their daddy. Crate-trained, and working on our leash-walking manners. Gets along great with other dogs, but best to feed separately...they came from a small space and protected their share of the food...apparently, it wasn't a lot, just enough to get by on. Here, at Howlin4Spirit, they are learning that food is not scarce and they don't need to protect theirs...they get plenty, and more. Just in case there's any question. FUN! Happy and healthy, they enjoy adequate playtime so a fenced-in yard or near-by dog park is required to be approved. NO APARTMENTS unless the adopter works from home and is an avid runner/jogger/hiker who is committed to sharing their regime/adventures with their new best friend on a daily basis. I always say, 'an exhausted puppy has a very happy owner!' They look to their person for guidance and leadership so obedience training would be a definite PLUS! These pups are in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until their fur-ever home is approved. SATURDAY only delivery. Transport fees are as follows: $125 to eastern VA/MD/DE/NJ-NJTnpk & JerichoNY(Long Island), and $140 to RyeNY, JohnstonRI, Nashua/ManchesterNH & BurlingtonVT every Saturday. &, $140 to Syracuse/Rochester& Albany on the 2nd & 4th FRIDAY of each month. Adoption fee: $150(includes spay/neuter, micro-chip, Rabies & health certificates, parasite-free, current on 1st yr vax(Bordatella, Rabies, Parvo/Distemper/Lepto), current on heart worm and flea/tick prevention, Kong or Nylabone chew toy, 'SUPER PUPPY' training booklet, beef knee cap bone, Martingale collar and match 6' leash, 2 'pet alert' wallet cards, 'RESCUED DOGS ROCK' car magnet).

  • Chihuahua, Parson Russell Terrier

  • Prefers home without catsPrefers home without small kids
dob: 2/17/2011..rescued from 'high-kill' Laurens Co, SC Animal Control after Mitzi was brought in as a 'stray'. We are convinced that she was owned by an older woman who just opened her door and let her out to go potty, and the woman may have gone into a nursing home or hospital and couldn't go looking for her Mitzi. Mitzi is a JackRussell/ChihuahuaX, with a bobbed tail and weighs just 10lbs. She is a devoted companion to her person. LOVES going for car rides, sleeping snuggled up against her person, walks well on-leash and is a great 'watch dog'. Protective of her food dish, so must be fed in separate corner from any other pets. Gets along with all size dogs, though seems a bit jealous of some older small females. Maybe had some competition, in her past life? Has the Jack personality, with short little legs. adoption fee: $125(includes spay, micro-chip, parasite-free, current on monthly heart worm and flea/tick prevention, health certificate issued within 3 days of transport, Martingale collar w/matching 6' leash, beef knee cap chew bone and all medical paperwork from day#1 with Howlin4Spirit). This pup is in and will remain in Rutherfordton,NC until her fur-ever family/home is approved. Transport from western NC to VA/DC/MD/DE/NJ/LongIsland=$100 & RyeNY/JohnstonRI/ManchesterNH/Allentown,Annville,HarrisburgPA or ChambersburgMD=$125 via Happy Dogs OR Lifesavers Rescued Pet Transport services with Saturday deliveries ONLY!

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 i​ncludes 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. 7/22/19 8:17 PM
