Name: Charlie

Approximate date of birth: 05/28/2011

Weight: 50 lbs.

Location: Glendale, CA

Adoption Status: Available Now

Bio: Charlie - this poor sweet older Carolina Dog was on death row at the Baldwin Park shelter in California when he was rescued.  He's about 6-7 years old and had all of his vaccinations updated before leaving the shelter.  He was very fearful at the shelter and therefore labeled as aggressive - once he got out and into a foster home he showed us that he's just a scared boy who needed to be loved again!
He takes a little bit of time to warm up as most dogs do at his age given his circumstances.  He's been out for awhile now and he's so ready for his forever home!  Playful and silly he loves to play with his ball and be outdoors in the sunshine....he's 50 lbs of happy old puppy!  
Charlie would do best as an only dog in a quiet home - he needs some time to adjust, but once he does he'll be your loyal friend until the end! Charlie is fearful of men so he would do best in a home with only female companions. This sweet boy LOVES being outside in his foster's garden and can spend hours enjoying nature - watching birds, playing with toys and basking in the sunshine - he really doesn't need much more! His adoption fee is reduced because we really just want Charlie to find his forever home so he can enjoy the rest of his life! He loves to go for rides in the car, has a great appetite, isn't destructive at all in the house, and he's HW negative. Charlie's adoption fee has been reduced because we really want to find him a home.

 SCD take dogs into the rescue using volunteer foster homes which enables us to get to know what each dog is like. Every dog is different and being able to see if they are dog friendly, cat friendly, good with children, etc., gives us the ability to properly match our dogs with the best possible home. Social media has played a huge part in our growth and we have a very active Facebook group that posts updates, pictures, and videos of the dogs we have under our care. With a network of fosters and volunteers across the country, we are now able to initiate rescue in areas where we have available resources. 

Offering rescue across the country is a very big responsibility and we're always looking for new fosters.  Fostering saves lives, not only the dog being pulled from the shelter but the next one coming into the shelter. If you're able to foster, please consider signing up with us by filling out this form

While we do love this breed, we realize they are not for every home. Our adoption application is very specific and we do require vet references, telephone interviews, home checks when possible, and we always connect our fosters with potential adopters so we can make sure we're placing our dogs in the perfect forever home - for both the dog and the adopting family.


We have a constant rotation of dogs coming in and being adopted out so the information below is constantly changing. We try to post new dogs quickly but we don't always have details on them immediately. Often our dogs are coming out of environments that are not ideal so to get a true read on their personality we like to allow them to decompress before making decisions on what type of family would be best for them. If you are interested in adopting and have specific questions on a dog posted below, please send us an email at savingcarolinadogs@yahoo.com!

Name: Brees

Approximate date of birth: 09/15/2018

Weight: 32 lbs.

Location: Louisiana

Adoption status: Available Now

Bio: Brees is a 6-7 month old, who found himself in a high kill Louisiana shelter, with a badly mangled leg. The shelter vet saw his amazing personality and chose to amputate his leg, instead of euthanizing him, so that he could have a chance of experiencing a life he deserves. Brees doesn't let being a tripaw affect him. He loves to run, play and wrestle with the other dogs in his foster home. He is smart, affectionate and quite the charmer. Brees is outgoing and loves everyone he meets. He is house and crate trained, can be left free in the house when no one is home and is an all-around very well balanced pup.

Name: Chance

Approximate date of birth: 07/27/2017

Weight: 50 lbs.

Location: North Carolina

Adoption status: Available Now!

Bio: Chance is approximately 1.5 years old and weighs 50 pounds. He is a happy boy and pretty energetic. He loves kids and all people. He would be great as an only pup but could be ok with another dog as long as they are a smilier size. We are not sure about how he would do with cats, but he does not seem to have a very big prey drive. Due to his emaciated condition when brought into the rescue his pancreas was not functioning. This will be a lifelong condition that is controlled by an enzyme supplement that you add to his food. He will also most likely always need to be fed separately from other pets. Other than that he can have a happy long life!

Bio: *Lona is currently undergoing heartworm treatment in a foster home.* Lona is a sweet 3 year old pup that spent most of her early years living outside. She was surrendered to a shelter when her family found out they were having a baby. She’s great with kids, loves walks/runs & needs a brother/sister dog to play with. She takes a while to trust a man, but once she realizes the man won’t hurt her, she does good! She loves to swim in ponds.

Location: Texas - needs foster!

Adoption status: ADOPTED!!

Bio: This is Chase from Palm Valley Animal Control! We were totally blown away when we saw his picture showing he's a saddleback......BUT, it's a little more complicated than that. Chase seems to be the perfect blend of a Carolina Dog and a German Shepherd.....his front end is CD - and his back end is GSD! If you love both breeds and are looking for a very well behaved and sweet male - this boy may be the one for you! He's a gorgeous boy - a little over a year old!

As we learn more about Ivy's personality and needs, we will update her bio!

Name: Zelda

Approximate date of birth: 09/01/2018

Weight: 45 lbs.

Location: Georgia

Adoption status: Available now

Bio: Zelda was pulled from Rockdale County Ga Animal Control. She was picked up when her owners were incarcerated. She is VERY sweet and loves to give kisses. She is cat safe and has a low prey drive. She'll be on the bigger end of medium, probably 50-65 pounds adult weight. She's been spayed and fully vetted. She's on heartworm preventative, and will need interceptor every month to avoid whipworms, which she had when she was pulled. She loves to play, and does well with all three of her foster brothers and sisters. She would probably prefer to have a pack, but would do well as an only dog with lots of activity and socialization. She has not chewed anything other than toys, and is not destructive. She does well in a crate and is crated when we are gone, but we do leave her uncrated at night and she is fine. She's housebroken as long as she gets plenty of potty breaks. She will need some work on the leash, but sits quite nicely when asked. She is very well behaved, and well adjusted and friendly.

Name: Dash

Approximate date of birth: 02/01/2017

Weight: 50 lbs.

Location: Texas

Adoption status: Available now

Bio: He was recently rescued from being on the streets. The person that picked him up could not keep him but, thank goodness he was saved. This boy is sweet and only two years old! He is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. He is not aggressive. He loves being in a home with people and loves walks/play. He is no longer as scared as he was uncertain of the changes in his life and he is certainly loved and wants to have that loving forever home. He doesn’t take very long to warm up to you. He loves indoors, outdoors, running, walking, and playing with other dogs. As most dogs, he would need a little time to adjust to surroundings. He is friendly and loyal! Beautiful coat on this dog! He loves being out in nature and loves playing with his toys inside and outside. Oh, and he loves car rides in the crate but can be trained to be still on the seats and that will come in time with being familiar with environment/car. He has a great appetite and loves treats and currently is on a wonderful diet which he loves!
