* REO- male, will be ~45lbs as an adult, brown eyes, black torso with wide white blaze and muzzle is speckled . ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 7 m, 6 f, BlueHeeler/Lab/BorderCollieXs-dob: March 10, 2019 This litter was born in a lg plastic swimming pool while their owner was driving truck cross-country. His adult daughter would come by 2X day to feed Mama, clean up after them and make sure everyone was safe while her dad was out of town. Mama is a pb Blue Heeler, with ice-blue eyes. Their daddy is a BlackLab/BorderCollieX with 1 blue & 1 brown eye. Several pups have ice-blue eyes, while 2 have 1 blue/1brn eye and so that must make 6 with brown eyes. Owner wanted the litter of 13 'gone' by the time he got back from this week's haul, after Mama walked away from them, just 1 day shy of them turning 4wo. EX-wife just happens to be Howlin4Spirit's mail carrier and so she reached out to us for help...of course! And, we were HAPPY to get Mama spayed for him, just as soon as she had dried up enough to safely undergo the surgery! Win! Win! for ALL concerned! These pups are now well-socialized with humans and dogs, through H4S's diligence and patience. We've split them up into 2 groups...so as to be able to know and handle them better and easier to ID each one. 6 bigger ones together and the 7 smallest together. Works so much better this way! They are happy, healthy(thankful for puppy vitamins, black-strap molasses & high calorie food) and are always happy to see us coming...i.e., they LOVE their person! The females will be spayed on FRI/May 31st & males will be neutered on MON/June 3rd. They will be ready to go to their pre-approved adoptive homes on SAT/June 8th, after they have recovered from their spay/neuter-micro-chip surgeries. These pups are in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until they have recovered from their surgery and their adoptive family has been approved.

  • Chihuahua, Jack Russell Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Chihuahua/Dachshund/TerrierX-dob: January 21, 2019...rescued from a 'special needs' client's unwanted litter. Skeeter was given to our vet who had recently lost her own pup's partner and was seeking to see if her older boy would be receptive to her, but Stewart didn't quite take to lil Skeeter's youthful energy. So, Howlin4Spirit was asked to help find this beautiful, friendly, out-going, fun and happy, loving little 'snuggle-bum'...NOTHING makes her happier than being in your lap or rolling up into a ball between your pillows. Holds her own around the bigger models of 'tossed aways' without rattling any cages. Just blends right in! Sweet and not afraid to venture up, nor down, scary see-thru stairs nor friendly walks on wooded trails with her person and the big kids at Howlin4Spirit. Skeeter has a BEAUTIFUL, loving spirit about her. If not overly-spoiled, she will certainly mature into an awesome adult. She wants to please! Walks OK on-leash, but still needs work on it a little, as she's so little so was carried everywheres before H4S started training her to more domesticated mannerisms. So light, you'd be tempted to carry her, however she also enjoys a safe, calm place to walk freely. (H4S has 5ac of fenced property they can roam on). Given the opportunity, her confident soars! Crate-trained, though SHE prefers being curled up in bed between your pillows. With diligent 11pm & 7am potty breaks, she should be good! She has recovered from her spay surgery and is ready to go to her pre-approved adoptive home any day within our area(RutherfordtonNC) , OR any SATURDAY, if transport is needed for more the northeastern area. Adoption fee: $375(includes spay, micro-chip, 3 puppy boosters(of 4 required 1st yr), 2 Leptospirosis, Bordatella and 1st yr Rabies vaccines, they are parasite-free(2 rounds each of Panacur & Ponazaril), current on heart worm and flea/tick prevention, will come with ALL medical paperwork from day#1 at Howlin4Spirit-including our vet's surgical notes and current health certificate, 1/2 gallon bag of their current dry food(Tractor Supply Store's '4health'-salmon & potato), T ball, 1 Kong OR Nylabone chew toy, 2 'pet alert' wallet cards, 'RESCUED DOGS ROCK' car magnet, new Martingale collar and matching 6' leash and 'SUPER PUPPY-The Best Dog You'll Ever Have' training booklet.

Sweet, friendly, out-going, fun personality, super-loving, 'social butterfly', happy, healthy and gentle. Crate trained, rides well, walks well on-leash, gets along well with all dogs, cats and older respectful & responsible children (must be 13y+). LOVES being with her people, but can allow her 'social butterfly' to emerge if not supervised OR if she becomes bored while outdoors unsupervised/person goes out gate...she wants to be with her person! Once outside, she will go exploring...not far, but ANY distance is too far, given this sometimes crazy world we live in. NOT a good match for older seniors, or homes with children under 13yo. We will be happy to send you more pix & videos, upon request. BEWARE! SKY is an 'escape artist'...she WILL climb chain-link & welded-wire fencing(anything she can get a foothold into). Therefore, we are seeking a stay/work-at-home person/walk on leash ONLY situation OR a home with a wooden/vinyl stockade fence with buried reinforcement wire(EXPERIENCED BEAGLE PEOPLE WILL UNDERSTAND!). 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.

To apply to adopt this lovely little sweetie, please copy and paste the application in to a new email, complete all questions(the more detailed, the better your chances of being approved), and email to: howlin4spirit@gmail.com. MAKE SURE you provide us with EMAIL ADDRESSES for your 3 personal references and let them know we will be sending them a short questionnaire within 1 business day.

  • Feist, Boxer
  • 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.

  • Feist, Boxer
  • 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.

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).

Seeking a active work-from-home person who desires the UNconditional love and companionship of a fur-child who only wants to please you! Requires a 6' fence stockade fence with locks on gates. LOVES being indoors snuggled up on a soft, cozy cushion or going for walks on wooded trails in a safe environment. She's good with respectful children 10+yo, but she will be devoted to her adult person because that is what she grew up with. Enjoys the company of bigger dogs and her people.

  • Prefers home without catsPrefers home without small kids
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!

  • 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.

  • Beagle, Basset Hound
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without cats
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. 5/18/19 5:29 PM
