FAITH

Lavender

AGE: 4 months old

Despite her terrible beginnings, she’s forgiven humans and is so happy and loving! She has the most beautiful eyes.

She does fine alone but doesn't like to be in her crate when her person isn't home. She misses her humans when they are gone. She prefers to chill out with her human.

BACKGROUND: Molly lived in a home with 2 other dogs. One aggressed her, so her owner took her to the Bladen County Shelter. We believe that she has PTSD from the other dog which has caused her to be nervous around dogs her size or bigger.

Blu

BLU

AGE: Approximately 8 years old

BREED: Pocket Pittie

SEX: M

NEEDS: Blu is a wonderful alpha dog who can be around submissive female dogs but not other males, especially other Pitties, nor cats. He's a spunky guy who likes to rule. He loves toys, goes to the bathroom outside like a good dog, is good in a crate, and has learned to be on a leash.

BACKGROUND: Blu was named because he was blue when his people took him to a shelter. Freedom Bridge found him a terrific foster family where he is staying until his forever family finds him. 

HEALTH ISSUES: Blu is deaf in one ear from untreated infections that closed his ear canal. He is fully vetted with core vaccines, on preventions for heartworms and flea/tick, microchipped, and neutered.

Jester

RIVER

AGE: Approximately 4 years old

BREED: Tree Walker Hound

SEX: M

NEEDS: River would be a good family pet. He is very playful, so would be better with older kids. He would be good as an only dog or with a doggie sibling, as he is good with other dogs. He is not used to cats. A fence would be best for him.

HEALTH ISSUES: He is receiving heartworm injections, covered by Freedom Bridge.

MATTIE

AGE: Approximately 3 months old  

BREED: Unknown Mix

SEX: F

BACKGROUND: Mattie was found by a Good Samaritan in a cardboard box, in the rain, in the bushes by a gas station. The Good Samaritan reached out to us to help and, of course, we said yes. Sadly, we know nothing else about her history. 

She would NOT have made it another couple of days without treatment. We are most grateful to the Good Samaritan who reached out to us and knew that Mattie was critical.


NEEDS: A loving family. She is NOT ready to go anywhere yet, but we wanted to share this cutie patootie so everyone can see her cuteness and know that, despite humans, she will be fine and still trusts us.

We are not certain of her size when fully grown. We are estimating 40-50 lbs BUT we may be mistaken. She appears to be very flexible with her needs (particularly given her age). We feel that she would be great as a family pet with or without sibling pups.


HEALTH ISSUES: Mattie was full of worms, anemic, her gums and tongue were completely white, and her blood count was only one point away from needing transfusions. She was full of intestinal parasites and also had chiggers. She appeared to have been bitten by another animal. All is being addressed by our vet and she is recovering quite well.

You would never know she was as sick as she was by the way she is acting. She LOVES attention and would love to play with her step sister and brothers but she’s currently in quarantine. She has not received any vaccines as of yet due to her health BUT will be ready when she is fully well. She is getting healthy now and has had one round of vaccines.

Salem

SALEM

AGE: Approximately 9 months to a year

BREED: Mixed puppy

SEX: F

BACKGROUND: Salem was found wandering in Forsythe County. She is now in a nice foster home. She is very shy, so she needs people to approach her slowly, but she warms up fast to humans. She is learning that there are nice ones! She is scared of loud noises because she’s been on the streets alone and has heard so many noises that everything scares her. She just has to get used to the everyday sounds humans make. Salem has been through a lot in her short life that has made her shy. She is so ready for love and consistency.

NEEDS: A yard would be really nice. Although she won't run right now, she will when she’s acclimated to her new home. If no yard, Salem needs to have an active person. She is very lovable and needs lots of rubs and hugs.
