  • Catahoula Leopard Dog, Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
This BEAUTIFUL litter of 8 pups, Agnes, Chandler, Buttercup, Dude, Tova, Prudence, Melba and Saffron, was RESCUED by Howlin4Spirit after having been dumped at our local shelter/AnimalControl's gate, in the foothills of Western NC. They were found on Sunday morning, in a crate after enduring a cold(30something) night, all huddled together . dob: ~December 19, 2019..while there's no doubt that there's got to be more than 1 daddy in this litter, H4S's 'go-to' grp of vets, behaviorist and advocates feel that Catahoula/Feists/PittieX should cover most of their breedXs pretty well. NOTHING is known about their first few weeks, before they came into Howlin4Spirit's care. However, they seem to be very people-oriented and loving...they can't get enough snuggles. They get along well with one another and play nice...no real rough-housing. Just happy to be included and enjoy climb on the garden furniture in their kennel(King of the Hill). VERY willing to please, with happy personalities. Would make excellent companions for active people who enjoy daily runs, hikes, jogging, etc and/or has a fenced-in backyard and/or another fur-pet to play with and snuggle up to. They will be great companions for older, respectful children(probably not a good match with small toddlers) and again, a secured fenced-in backyard. They will be medium-sized as adults(~30>45lb) and completely vetted(speutered, micro-chipped plus 3 puppy boosters(3rd required at 4mos), Lepto, Bordatella and Rabies vax) and ready for their fur-ever homes on SAT/March 21st(both males can go on SAT/March 14th). These pups are in and will remain in foster care in RutherfordtonNC until their fur-ever homes are pre-approved. Transport is available to all states along the eastern seaboard to ManchesterNH, BurlingtonVT, and RochesterNY. Transport fees: $125 from western NC as far as Vince Lombardi svc plaza/NJTnpk, mm118 & $140 to JerichoNY(Long Island) and points N & W of Vince Lombardi svc plaza. Adoption fee: $275(includes speuter, micro-chip, all medical records and vet's surgical notes, Rabies & health certificates, 'Super Puppy'-training booklet, Martingale collar and matching 6' nylon leash, beef knee cap bone, Nylabone or KONG chew toy, 'RESCUED DOGS ROCK' magnet, 2 pet alert wallet cards and Tball).

  • Feist, Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Memphis, Lola, Otis and Etta were rescued from an unwanted litter situation, thanks to a mail carrier's request to Howlin4Spirit, for their past owner who had a small infant on her hip and nothing in her pocket. dob: November 6, 2019...mama is a Feist/PittieX at 29lbs and daddy is a Pittie at 40lbs. Thought, these pups resemble the Feist in Mom more than they do their daddy. Truly people-oriented and very loving...they can't get enough snuggles. They get along well with other dogs, though might not be the best match for cats in the home UNLESS their fur-ever person works from home and is able to supervise, until they get used to one another. VERY willing to please. Would make an excellent companion for an active person who enjoys daily runs, hikes, jogging, etc. They will be great companions for older, respectful children(probably not a good match with toddlers), with a secured fenced-in yard. These babies had been VERY hungry in their past. So best to feed from separate bowl, if you have other pets. They are completely vetted(speutered, micro-chipped plus 2 puppy boosters(3rd required at 4mos), Lepto, Bordatella and Rabies vax) and ready for their fur-ever homes. These pups are in and will remain in foster care in RutherfordtonNC until their fur-ever homes are pre-approved.

ZUZI: 2yo pb f/s, Beagle dob: Sept 24, 2917 SWEET, friendly, smart, fun & playful...overall, a happy little(18lb) girl. Walks well on-leash, gets along great with other dogs and respectful children...would need to test with cats, upon request. Rescue requires a secured fenced-in backyard and/or an active adopter for this young lady's daily exercise needs. Crate-trained and mostly housebroken, especially if there's a doggie door going out into backyard or routine outdoor visits. This little bundle of sweet joy would greatly benefit from a basic obedience training course with her fur-ever person. She's timid at first but once trust is established, she soooo wants to please and snuggle. H4S feels that her past owner didn't include her in the family pact or took time to bond with her; not realizing what a 'pearl' she truly is. But, she has learned that humans can be trusted and sharing time/walks in the woods and being there for each other is a grand new adventure for her. Adoption fee: $175(includes spay , micro-chip, utd on Bordatella, Parvo-Distemper, Rabies & Lepto, current on heart worm and flea/tick prevention, health certificate, all medical paperwork from day #1 at Howlin4Spirit including vet's surgical notes, Martingale collar and matching 6' leash, 3lbs bag of current dry food(Tractor Supply Store's '4health'-salmon and potato, 'SUPER PUPPY-training booklet, beef knee cap bone, 2 'pet alert' wallet cards, 'RESCUED DOGS ROCK' car magnet, chew toy, T ball). This pup is in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until her fur-ever home is approved.

UPDATE: BUSTER now LOVES sleeping on the floor next to his person and has adjusted to the population of many other Beagle and young fur-kids like himself whom have been rescued and are seeking love, respect and a home of their very own. He is housebroken, but does not like being crated. Yet, rides well in a car(yes, in a crate...always best when travelling!). BUSTER-m/n, pb Beagle-dob ~10/22/2013 was rescued from a rural farming community after he either followed his nose too far from home & got lost or he was abandoned..happens all too often by their so-called 'hunter' owners. Buster had been running this community for ~3weeks, and was getting into folk's trash; apparently with some success judging by his girth at the time of being rescued. Many neighbors contacted Animal Control(but they had no room at their 'inn') and posted his picture and location on FB, with no results. So, they contacted Howlin4Spirit to see if we could help him. SWEET little rollie-pollie(11"@shoulders, but has a 13"Beagle's body, @ 3olbs, with a calm, gentle demeanor. Buster is housebroken and walks well on-leash, and is a sweet gentle soul. We think he probably was an 'only pet' in his past life and seems to enjoy a spot of his own, yet he gets along well with all the others. Puppies can be a bit irritating to him, however. Nothing mean, just warns them with a growl or two. He likes hunting squirrels and critters along our wooded trails, but at a moderate pace...not like his life depends on it. Friendly, but very wise. Buster is an 'old soul'. After spending at least 3 wks lost, & most likely shouted at/chased off, had to deal with guns shot off to scare him away, etc, his instincts on who can be trusted and whom he can't is pretty on-point. He's intuitive and reserved, at first. Then, seeks your love/attention once he trusts you. When Howlin4Spirit went to the home of the person who called us to take him, he had spent ~16hrs under a plastic container exactly his size, with no water/food...and 3 heavy houseplants holding it down on him...pretty scary scenario for such a mellow, friendly guy. Buster is looking for an active, early retiree or stay at/work from at home person. Someone with Beagle experience and at least a 4'h fenced-in yard with maybe a garden and who will take him for leisurely daily walks...he enjoys quiet adventures and hanging out with his person. A true JOY for any Beagle-lover. Just be sure to secure your trash can lids and be prepared to sit at a table to eat. IF Buster can see an opportunity to grab a treat and run with it, he'll take it. Adoption fee: $125, includes neuter, micro-chipped, utd on Rabies, Bordatella, Parvo/Distemper/Lepto vaccines, parasite-free and current on heart worm and flea/tick prevention. Comes with all medical paperwork, including vet's surgical notes, Rabies certificate and health certificate. Buster is in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until his adoptive home is approved. More videos and pictures are available upon request.

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. 2/27/20 4:19 PM
