9/16/17: No dates yet, but Snowball has been accepted into Westie Rescue, Southeast!

9/4/17: Snowball is only 1 year old. He came in as an owner surrender, they said they were moving and could not take the dog.

They did not mention the dog had seizures, but Snowball had two seizures the first night with his foster mom. The vet at MCAH did blood work that came back normal; so it may possibly be epilepsy. The vet gave him medication and will recheck his bloodwork in 2-3weeks.

8/28/17: Tellico is making small steps forward; he is a hard-luck case to be sure, but his sweet disposition makes him worth the trouble.

Tellico will use the doggie door to go outside on his own; he has not pooped in the house in over a week. I have 4 male dogs so I can't honestly say if he has or hasn't marked in the house, although I think if his environment were scent-free of other males, he would do great indoors as long as he had a doggie door to use.

He is heartworm positive and undergoing treatment so his physical activities are restricted. He is overweight, but I can't encourage play, walking, or running until it's safe.

8/17/17: Tellico is our newest SCP foster. Tellico is a Beagle, around 7 years old. He had to have his eye removed, he has been neutered and is heartworm positive. He has started heartworm treatment.

He seems to be very calm, non aggressive to other dogs.

We'll add more about Tellico as we get to know him.

8/14/17: Tellico is a Beagle, male, maybe 7 years old and very shy. Tellico will have an eye removed at Tellico Bay Animal Hospital on 08-17-17

He is heartworm positive and due to his age he cannot do the 'fast kill' HW treatment.

Tellico is most likely not housebroken YET. Tellico's foster mom will do her best to get him housebroken and socialized.

He came into the shelter almost feral, but has improved greatly by being allowed to roam free around the shelter. Fingers crossed I can help him become adoptable.



MOLLY - FEMALE - TERRIER MIX - 5 YEARS

Go to Top Go to Bottom
SCP    SCP

9/16/17: Molly's foster Mom has gone on vacation so she is temporarily back at the shelter ... if you'd like to help by fostering Molly, that would be a huge help. She gets along well with smaller dogs, but shows some jealousy with dogs her own size.

8/18/17: From Molly's foster Mom: We're leaving on vacation tomorrow and will be leaving Molly at the shelter until she finds another foster home. Molly has been quite a challenge and while I am happy to report that she can be walked on a loose lead and has learned to "wait" before charging out of the door - though she has moments when she forgets. We feel it would be best if she was returned to the shelter or find a home that has no other dogs (maybe someone who has just lost a dog?) where she can just hang out with that person(s). She loves nothing more than to just be by someone's side, needing her own person.

As part of her heartworm treatment, she is supposed to stay relatively quiet. Unfortunately, when she is crated in our upstairs wire crate, which we feel gives fosters more social time with us and our two dogs, it seems that when left alone in the crate, especially at night, she has a tantrum. This cannot be good for her recuperation. Take her out, she is calm and very manageable, though the perceived competition with our Rottie is something to we have to keep an eye on - when she is on a lead and she encounters him, she does fine. In order to put our minds at rest and get some sleep, we banished her to a room in our basement where we put her into an airline crate. At first she wailed and carried on, but after awhile, she calms down and we have had some peace and quiet.

This girl has a lot of potential, has a decent temperament, and is very trainable in experienced hands. If you find someone who could foster her, we would be happy to loan out one of our airline crates. It has made a huge difference.

8/16/17: Molly is very affectionate and social, strong physically but trainable. She gets along well with my rat terrier, my Rottweiler not so much as I think she feels competition overwhelming in this early socialization. She just needs to learn rules.

Molly will be a loyal companion as she is most content laying at my feet when I'm working in the kitchen or on the computer.

8/3/17: Molly is ready to start her heartworm treatment and it would really help her to have a foster home for the next few weeks while she stays quiet and recovers. She is housebroken, spayed, and wants to be active, but her condition requires some down time while she heals.

5/19/17: Molly is a 5 year old terrier mix, 64 pounds, she's a nice girl who doesn't like being in the kennel, would rather be with people.
