Burt

Burt

  • Sponsored by Stephen Fussell

Available

54 lbs.
Neutered Male
Age: 7 Years Old
Breed : Terrier Mix

Burt was displaced because his loving owner died. He was very much loved and cared for by his owner and was always clean and well fed. Because he lived away from heavy traffic, he was allowed to roam freely during the day to visit everyone in the neighborhood, including all the children, dogs and cats. Burt NEVER barked, was NEVER aggressive, and was always playful toward any person or animal. He voluntarily went back home every day. The owner took him into the house every evening and Burt and his owner slept together in the same bed. He loves riding in the car and enjoys being your buddy in the front passenger seat. He would be a wonderful companion for a family or single person (with or without) children and other pets, who could give him a comparable lifestyle. He would probably do well in a fenced in yard.

Iggy

Iggy

  • Sponsored in Honor of the Avery County Coon Hunters

Available

Spayed Female
Age: 1 Year Old
Breed : Hound Mix

Iggy is a very special girl so why is she still in the shelter? The only reason this girl is still here is she is afraid. Iggy and her litter mates were put out and not given socialization with humans as puppies. She learned to bond and trust her brothers. When Iggy went into the New Leash on Life program she bonded closely with her trainer. Now she has graduated and has no where to go. When people come to see her she tries to hide. What I want people to understand about her is she will bond to you and your family. She will learn to trust and will be the best friend anyone could ever have. She loves other dogs and loves attention once she is outside. If someone with patience would just take the time to get to know her so she can get to know them. Iggy is house trained and walks good on a leash once comfortable with her person. If you give her the time she needs to get comfortable you will not regret it.

Fergus lived with another dog and is used to a very quiet household. They said he loved being petted and bathed and is selfish with human attention at times. He is afraid of guns and yelling. Fergus loves anything to play tug or catch with and can be a little too much for small children.
