Everly is currently being fostered. To meet with this sweet girl please call for an appointment. 828-733-2333 Time for an Everly update. 1/16/23 We've been pleased with the progress we're seeing in Everly. She lets me pet her at any time now and nudges for more when I stop. I can still sometimes see her brain and her nervous system working against each other in that she really wants attention but is still wary of it, yet more and more she chooses the attention. The men who are working on our house are trying very hard to earn her trust - they will toss treats to her which she gladly takes. One man has even got her to take treats from his hand, which I think is huge! She won't let them pet her yet, but the men seemed determined to break that barrier with kindness and patience. She now sleeps in our bedroom at night, on the floor beside my husband, and wakes us up each morning by jumping on the bed and licking our faces. Occasionally I find her lounging on our bed during the day. She is quite "talkative," letting us know with little whimpers and noises when she needs to go out. She loves being outside, hiking, eating snow and just romping around. It gives me such joy to see her having such fun. Warm regards, Betsy
Dallas is super sweet. He is a little timid meeting new people but warms up very quickly. He does good on a leash but could use a little extra training. Dallas loves his outside time and being in the sun. He is a very fast learner and doesn't mind other dogs.
Charles is timid with new people but warms up fast. He is super sweet and loves snuggles. He is a little afraid of leashes but is improving every day. Charles is full of puppy energy. He does not mind other dogs but should not live with cats. This boy goes outside to potty.
Dumpling is the sweetest and most friendly boy. He loves to snuggle with everyone. Dumpling needs leash manners but adores being outside and going for long walks. He seems to be okay with other dogs and potties outside.
Shego is very snuggly and a good leash-walker. She loves people when outside of the kennel but when approached in her kennel she seems to feel threatened and anxious. We are hoping to get this sweet excitable girl into a home environment very soon as shelter life is very stressful for her.

Peanut is the sweetest! He is shy at first but warms up in no time. Peanut is amazing walking on the leash and loves going for walks. He adores his brother Todoroki and gets excited when he sees him. We do believe Peanut is housebroken and doesn't seem to be bothered by other dogs.
