Outlaw is a 2-3 year-old, very smart, cute 38-pound yellow lab mix who knows what he likes. He loves women and is beginning to trust men a little more every day. He prefers to eat his dinner off the floor, or he may carry his bowl to the screened porch and eat there. He loves playing with other dogs, he is a huge fan of belly rubs, cuddling, and going for walks. When on walks he now enjoys having people pet him especially kids. Outlaw likes his crate and considers it his private room, it’s stocked with his favorite toys, and he has picked out various pieces of laundry and taken them to his crate. He is a big fan of the screened in porch, and the swinging bed on the porch, he has been known to drag his blanket through the house from his crate to the porch. Outlaw does not chew or destroy any thing, but he does like to rearrange things. This smart boy has not had any training, but he is treat motivated, listens well, likes to please and would love to learn. He is working on house training and getting better. Outlaw is okay with taking a shower, he thinks towel time is pretty good, but he loves being brushed and never wants you to stop. He stands tall and holds his head up just enjoying every minute. Outlaw loves being outdoors, he would love a family that also enjoys outdoor activities, and he would appreciate a fenced in yard. He has a moderate activity level, a nap always follows a big walk, but he is excited to go anytime you are ready. Outlaw is good with cats; he pretty much ignores them even when they are in the same room. This boy would like a family with children or an active couple or single, but a dog sibling who likes to play would be a huge plus for him. When he was taken into the shelter as a stray he was with a buddy, we rescued Outlaw and his buddy Bo, when the two arrived at Southern Skies they had some time to play prior to the fosters picking them up. His friend had a blue stuffed squeaky toy that Outlaw thought he really needed. He found another stuffed toy and set it down just out of the reach of his friend, when his buddy went for the bait, he stole the blue squeaky toy, a pretty good bait and switch!! Outlaw takes some time to adjust to change and likes to sit in his crate with the door open to help him with the changes. He prefers women and the men in his new family will need to be patient and I’m sure he will come around. He does not exhibit any aggression and really does not bark, if he is in the backyard at night and hears a coyote or other animal he may howl. Outlaw is neutered, microchipped and all vaccines are up to date.
Four puppies were dumped in a field. Covered in clusters of ticks, fleas and super thin.
Our Rose is as beautiful as they come, unique, affectionate and very clever, but yet delicate. Rose is a Lab Pei or Lab Aire and someone recently said maybe Lab Dane mix, approx., 20 weeks old, close to 40 pounds and a gorgeous black coat with streaks of rich shiny chocolate almost like brindle, but not as pronounced. She is absolutely stunning, rich in personality and such a great temperament like her other siblings. Rose will be without a doubt a big girl, so I wouldn't be surprised if she weights over 80 pounds. I adore this gir!. She is smart, witty and funny all at the same time! She is fine around other dogs and people, but all of them just a little shy and scared at first until they understand you mean them no harm. They are quiet, easy going and can be good for any household provided they have plenty of love from family, someone willing to train, a nice bed to snuggle on and must have a fenced in yard to romp around in. Rose will be fully medically vetted and microchipped before going to her forever home. If you are interested in this delightful gal please go and complete our online pre-adoption application

He is just too adorable, too cute and going to be a very big boy! More to love as they say! He will do great in any family provided he gets lots of love, attention and has a fenced in yard to romp around in when going outside.

Meet Libby Lou! Black Lab female, 49 pounds and approx 1 1/2 years old. Libby is a precious, sweet, loving and funny gal just needs to be handled gently and with pure love. Thus far I have gained her trust because she has shown me her precious "Smile". Yes, she is a smiling dog! She would benefit with a knowledgeable Lab companion or couple and one that would not mind giving her the time she needs to grow. Libby thus far is doing great in the house, and hates the crate and will injure herself trying to get out of one so definitely would prefer a work from home or stay-at-home. She would do great with a retired person or persons. She does has a wonderful temperament and can be left alone in the house for short periods. She truly enjoys getting belly rubs, petted on the head and just being pampered. She loves a big fluffy bed to lay on and just enjoys being with her human curled up whenever possible. Already loves treats! Not much of a leash walker so she would definitely need time with that, but fine going into a backyard to do her busy. Doesn't require a huge amount of exercise which is wonderful being she is not fond of walking on a leash. She is also very scared of anything around her neck, so using a harness is best when wanting to get her. She easily can get spooked so best to really get her acclimated to her home before being adventurous. This little gal is super special and so deserving. Libby has been fully medically vetted; spayed, up-to-date, heart worm tested negative and placed on prevention plus micro-chipped. If you are interested in Libby please complete our online pre-adoption application.
Meet Pepper! This poor gal at 1 1/2 years old had a rough start and on the brink of death when found a year ago, but now on the mend and we wish to change and put the past behind her! Pepper is approx., 55 pounds and Lab/Border Collie mix. She takes a little time to warm up to folks especially men. She is somewhat timid, but eager to trust kind humans. Pepper needs understanding, kindness, unconditional love, a gentle touch or she cowards with fast movements, scared of storms and loud sounds. Pepper loves to play, has plenty of energy and enjoys a good game of tug-a-war. She needs a human companion that can cherish everything about her and break the barriers and shell still surrounding her. She would love a human buddy to enjoy a lifetime with! Pepper like all young pups still needs obedience training, is housebroken and can use more help with leash walking. Pepper would ideally go to a home with another dog to play with and a large fenced in yard to romp around in whenever outside to enjoy the day. If you are interested in making a difference and gaining a loving fur friend please consider Pepper. To apply please go to complete our online pre-adoption application. Pepper will be fully medically vetted; spayed and up-to-date on everything before going to her forever home. She is heart worm negative and on prevention plus will be micro-chipped.
Meet Pierce! Pierce was rescued off a chain weighing 27 pounds by a fellow rescuer. Pierce is approx., 3-4 years old and now a healthy 55- 60 pounds thanks to his foster family. Pierce not only suffered chained, he lived with no love or attention in the nastiest place ever laid eyes on by rescuers along with 7 other fur siblings. Pierce unsurprisingly has been tested heart worm positive, but we will be treating this sweet and loving boy. The good news is Pierce shows no clinical signs of heart worms so he will be just fine and will recover! Pierce in spite of his circumstances is friendly to all people. Its like he is seeing things for the first time off the chain and acts very puppy like naturally. He has a healthy curiosity. He is still learning leash manners and not to jump up on people. He would definitely require more work before he could be around small kids, so a family with older teens is best. He likes other dogs but does food garding which is pretty much natural after being starved, so would need to be feed separately from other dogs or be the only boy in the household. He has improved tremendously since his rescue and will require obedience training and a fenced in yard to play in. Medium energy level and seems to be fine with cats. This boy is deserving of a home that will love him and give him the kind of life he has missed out on. Pierce will be fully vetted; neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, heart worm treated and treatment to go with family who adopts him. Plus will be microchipped and receive a care package. If you are interested in giving this awesome boy named Pierce a home please go complete our online pre-adoption application.
