​This is "Ziggy Stardust" one of our latest rescued pups​ that we pulled from a very high kill shelter in Oklahoma.  He's a male about 2-3 years old that was very fearful at the shelter.  His basic vetting has been done and he's being neutered this coming weekend (4/13/2018) in Texas where he's in boarding for now.  He could really use an experienced foster or forever home.

He loves to be outdoors where he can run and play and spend some of his energy. He's friendly with humans once he gets to know them (prior to that he's a little aloof which is common for Carolina Dogs.)  He's HW negative and has a beautiful thick coat along with a fish hook tail.  He moves like a champion Arabian horse, prancing and jumping with happiness.  

We think that Ziggy would do well in an active home that will give him lots of exercise and love.  He is crate trained and house broken - so now he just needs to find that perfect forever home so he can settle in and become your very best friend!

​This sweet and gentle boy is named Kozmo.  At 47 lbs. and about 1.5 years old we rescued him from a TX high kill shelter at the end of February.  
Kozmo is crate trained, house trained, up to date on all vaccinations, neutered and HW negative - so now he just needs to find that perfect forever home.
His coat is beautiful - thick and soft.  He loves all other dogs - big and small...we don't know about cats though.  He's what we call a 'velcro dog' - he loves to follow you around the house and be near you.  His activity level is medium - he likes to play, but he can also snuggle up next to you on the couch.  Kozmo is shy until he gets to know you....loud noises (except the vacuum cleaner) do scare him so a quiet home with older children (if any) would be better.  He loves all of his toys and he also loves to chew on things so a home that understands a dog can get bored and will give him an outlet so he doesn't get destructive would be best.  He has a funny habit of backing out of rooms and small spaces - and he is very wary of men at first but with time warms up to them.  
His foster Mom is working on leash training with him - but it's a process...he seems to like being outside and just enjoying his freedom and the outdoors.  He was very shut down when we pulled him from the shelter and seems to revert when a harness or leash is put on him....but he's trying hard!
Kozmo's ideal home would be with adults - maybe a retired couple with a nice yard for him to play in -another dog would be a plus.  Quiet and not too demanding as he gets to know you....he'd be your best friend as you putt around the yard gardening or relax and read a book as the sun goes down - that would be perfect for Kozmo.

Say hello to this sweet and very happy to be out of the shelter pup that we're calling Tully!  Rescued from the Wichita, KS area Tully had no time left when we were alerted to him and with the incredible help of our dedicated rescue team members we pulled him and had him transported to the Nashville TN area to one of our amazing foster homes.  He's currently hanging out with his foster sister and brother (both Carolina Dogs) and he's fitting in perfectly.  He's a little shy at first but he warms up and willingly gives kisses after about 10 minutes!​

He's 45 lbs and about 18 months old, neutered, house broken, fully vaccinated and working on leash manners and commands. He's got a soft lush coat and just loves to be near his people.  His facial expressions are so endearing - this boy just exudes love on every single level!

Rescued from the Garland TX shelter after being on their kill list - this beautiful girl is named Angel.  She was very frightened when we pulled her into rescue and with the help of the other dogs in her foster home, she's come a long way in just a couple of weeks!  

Since her rescue she's been spayed, micro chipped and had all of her vaccinations updated.  She's Heartworm negative and on a monthly preventative.  Angel was picked up as a stray and we have learned that she is a fence jumper so she needs a very secure yard with at least a 6' or higher fence.  She absolutely can NOT be an outdoor dog - she needs the comfort and security of a home.  When we rescued her she had a double ear infection which has been treated and she's recovered from that.  Her left ear tends to stay down more often than not and we're not sure if that's due to the ear infection - but we think that it sure does add character to her!

Angel's ideal home - she has to have another well balanced dog to live with.  A quiet home without too much traffic - but active enough so she gets daily exercise and interaction.  If there are children in the home they should be older than 10 years old - she does take a while to warm up to you, but once she's done she's very silly!

This handsome and very sweet male Carolina Dog mix  LOVES other dogs and has a silly side to him - his name is Clark!​  

Clark is about 1.5 years old and weighs about 45 lbs - he went through Heartworm treatment and is now negative and on preventative.  All vaccinations are up to date and he's been neutered - he is crate trained, house trained and enjoys playing with other dogs in his foster home in Memphis TN.  

His foster Mom says that he's an absolute joy to have in the home and she's hoping a family with other dogs and a nice fenced in backyard will want to add him to their pack.  

​This good natured pup is ready to go to his forever home so if you think he's the pup you've been waiting for please send us an email at savingcarolinadogs@yahoo.com so we get an adoption application out to you!

Rescued from the mean streets of San Antonio TX - and we know they're not all mean, but where we found this sweet boy was a pretty bad area.  The local kids were throwing rocks at him when he tried to come up and make friends with them.  A kind person took him under their wing but could not keep him because their dog didn't like him so they contacted us asking for help.  We immediately sent someone to pick him up and brought him into the local vets where they updated all of his vaccines and neutered him for us.....we called him Karma - it just seemed fitting for him. 
When he arrived at his foster home they decided his name should be Yoda ​- because they already had a dog named Karma (imagine THAT!!!)...and his ears -well they were just like Yoda's!!!

This sweet, majestic pup has really come around being in foster.  No longer shy and scared, he's a bundle of love and warms up to people if they give him some time.  At some point in time someone docked his beautiful tail - but let me tell you...when he wags it he looks like a white tailed deer alerting the herd - it's ADORABLE!!! 

Yoda is around 2-3 years old and would like to find a quiet home with maybe a female dog he can pal around with.  He's not a high energy dog but likes to play.  He loves to be around people and will cuddle on the couch with you.   He weighs about 45 lbs. so he's medium sized.  He's leash trained and does know some commands so we believe he was someone's dog at some point in time.

He's ready for his forever home - and although we know it will take a little bit of time for him to adjust, he deserves to have his own place.

Sweet, precious, puppy love is what this boy is all about!  At just 4 months old we'd like to introduce to you a little pup that was found wandering the streets of Savannah GA.

Meet Little Wolfgang!!! 

He came to us a little over a week ago and everyone who's met him has fallen in love!   We've had all of his vaccinations done at the vet and he weighs a whopping 23 lbs!  We think he'll be about 55 lbs or so when full grown (but he could be slightly bigger!)  ​

This adorable little tot loves to play with other dogs and is very well mannered for such a baby.  He's house broken, crate trained, very social and loves all of his foster sisters and brothers.  He's fabulous with children so if you're looking for a puppy for the kids to grow up with he's just perfect!

He will be neutered when he's a little older so a clause will be put into the contract for whomever adopts him.  
He's currently in Black Mountain, NC (located near Asheville NC) with a pack of 4 other dogs and he's doing just great being the newbie!

Let us know is you'd like to be considered for this little boy - send us an email at 


At only 6-7 months old this little boy named Valentino made it out of the Garland TX shelter just in time.  He was so scared in the shelter that he was scheduled to be put down....but we stepped in to save him!​

Now he's in a foster home with another CD and cats and he's doing SO well with all of them!  He's been neutered and had all of his vaccinations - he's socialized and walks well on a leash as well as being crate trained.  He LOVES the water and enjoys going running with his foster Dad - he's such a good little boy.

We think his ideal home would be with a family he can grow up with.  He's got a great disposition and lays down and falls asleep when his foster Mom and Dad take him out with them at dog friendly restaurants......that's a big thing for such a small pup!  
So if you have cats or children - Valentino would be a wonderful fit...he's so easy going and full of love!

We'd love to help him find his forever home - send us an email at savingcarolinadogs@yahoo.com if you think Val might be the puppy you've been searching for!

Charlie - this poor sweet senior was on death row at the Baldwin Park shelter in California when he was rescued.  He's 10 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 a little over a month 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!  

​He's currently in foster in Glendale, CA - 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 really needs to find his own home so he can settle down for the last time and be someone's best friend.  We'd like to find him a home locally - but we can arrange transport for the perfect home if you're not in California.  

His perfect home would be a quiet one - no small children.....maybe another older dog would be good for companionship - but we think he'd be fine as an only dog with someone who's experienced with the breed.

Will you be Charlie's "Angel"?  Please say yes - he's waiting for you!

​​Attention all runners, joggers, hikers, ball throwers....Lisi is waiting for you!!!  This sweet girl was rescued from a high kill shelter in Georgia at the beginning of March.  She's got a lot of energy!  She'd do very well with a male dog at least as big as she is because she likes to play non stop. Children in the home should be over the age of 10 and love to throw the ball for her.

Lisi is around 2 years old and 50 lbs, heart worm negative and on preventative and she's had all of her vaccines updated. She's scheduled to be spayed on 3/21 and will be ready for her forever home by the beginning of April.  She's extremely intelligent and would benefit from further training.  Agility definitely would suit her as she LOVES to please her master!  No small dogs, she's just got too much energy and needs a packmate that enjoys playing as much as she does.  She is crate trained and her foster says she's not destructive at all - she just wants to play...so if you're looking for a happy go lucky girl then this is the pup for you!  Her floppy ears probably won't ever go up but we think it makes her cuter.  
Send us an email if you thnk you might have the right home for Sweet Lisi

Hello world!!!  My name is Rita and I'm currently located in upstate NY - I'm looking for my forever and ever home!!  I'm originally from Texas and I love living in the country.  I'm not so good with very small children and my humans just had a baby so I'm looking for a home that would better suit me.....My current Mom wrote this profile about me below....if you're looking to adopt and can give me a beautiful home in the country...send the rescue an email at savingcarolinadogs@yahoo.com



Rita is a 3 year old piebald beauty. She is a very special girl with some special needs so she is looking for that perfect person. She knows all of her basic commands and loves her crate. She can be off leash and has great recall to her bonded human. She loves most everyone she meets. She has excellent leash manners and loves to hike! She currently lives in a home with a cat and another dog. Rita would do best in a rural environment. She currently lives on a 200 acre farm where she can hunt and run all day, she would love to be able to still do that. Rita’s is a resource guarder so she will needs a home that understands her specific needs. She is a bit insecure despite her long legs and good looks. She takes a little time to warm up to new things including other animals. Her current family loves her very much but Rita has not accepted the new baby in the household well. She is good with kids above the age of 10.

​Falcor is magnificent male Carolina Dog mix that is located in Alabama - (transport available to the RIGHT home)

This beautiful boy who is 1.5 years young was found suffering from an extreme case of mange and he was emaciated - another day or two and we may not have been making this post.  He didn't even resemble a Carolina Dog when he was found.  With love and care from his foster Mom, he has been transformed into a stunningly, beautiful boy.
He's been neutered and all of his vaccinations are up to date.  He is cat friendly but he does not do well with dominant dogs - especially male dogs. So his ideal home would be with a female(s) dog and an experienced CD family or as an only dog - he bonds very closely with humans and has displayed a bit of separation anxiety so if you work from home that would be an added plus!

His coat has been restored fully and he has a beautiful black mark on his forehead that looks like an Indian Arrowhead - he's unique beyond belief!   If you're hooked on pariah breeds and all they encompass then this boy is definitely what you've been looking for - primitive, primal but yet willing to be a domesticated pup that will become your very best friend!
