Name: Olive & Riley (bonded pair)

Approximate date of birth: 9/21/13 & 4/11/12

Weight: 56 lbs. & 55 lbs.

Location: Missouri

Adoption status: Available

Bio: We’re Olive and Riley and we are looking to find our new forever home. In addition to our stunning good looks, we’re incredibly polite; never beg for food at the dinner table and always wait for permission to join you on the couch or bed. Not to brag but we are the world’s best cuddlers and will happily watch reality television shows with you for hours. (Olive is a secret Dance Moms addict) We love to run at the dog park and splash in the water. We’re your typical sisters; it doesn’t matter how many toys are out, we only want the one the other sister is playing with! I know adopting 2 dogs seems like a lot but since we are a little older, we are incredibly calm, easy going pups that just want to snuggle by your side and are always ready for a game of tug-of-war, car ride, or a walk around the neighborhood. We are great with kids and other dogs, incredibly photogenic, and pretty much perfect in every single way! We even come with all of our own accessories! Beds, crate, toys, we have it all ready to go (we’re just thoughtful like that)! We love our foster parents but are ready to find our perfect family to love forever and ever!

 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: Ivy

Approximate date of birth: 02/27/2018

Weight: 55

Location: Texas

Adoption status: Available Now

Bio: Ivy is a sweet, crazy puppy looking for her forever home! She loves other dogs and cats. She is very high energy and playful so she needs a family who is active. She is a little shy with people at first but warms up quickly! This girl can jump so she needs a home who knows she can't ever be left alone in a yard because she will escape. She is still learning her manners so she needs a family committed to training her and being patient with her as she learns. She LOVES toys & belly rubs more than any dog I have ever met. She is very curious & mischievous so supervision is a must with her. She is crate trained and gladly goes in her crate when she's home alone or to sleep in at night.

Adoption status: Available

Bio: Teddy was born in February 2019 and is a young CD rescued in Houston, Texas at about 18 pounds.

Teddy has fun playing with his foster sisters and loves all other dogs. He likes to walk on a leash and run at the dog park. He would love to go to a home with another dog and is also very friendly to cats. Teddy plays with soft toys and often hides them in the backyard. He enjoys being outside and wrestling with his foster sisters. He is crate trained where he feels secure and can sleep thru the night. It is recommended that he have a crate for him to relax in. Teddy is curious and likes to explore. He is very active but also loves to cuddle and relax out in the sun. Teddy is not shy, enjoys all people, and would blend nicely into any home environment.

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.

Name: Gunner

Approximate date of birth: 10/01/2016

Weight: 30 lbs.

Location: Texas

Adoption status: Available

Bio: Meet Gunner: If he could talk, it’d go something like this. I’m a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious kinda dude. I love long walks on the beach. I make everyone laugh. I’m pretty handsome if you ask me, AND my great personality is a bonus 🤪! At first my foster mom was kind of nervous because I got a little mouthy around food and when it was time to go to bed in my kennel. She quickly realized that I was just nervous too. I may or may not have some baggage because my previous parents abandoned me at a dump, also known as doggie jail 😵! Meh, clearly there was something really wrong with them! Who can’t deal with a little baggage though, did I mention I am handsome? Ohh and I love cats, kids, and other dogs too! I even let my foster brother Max (the cat dog) cuddle up to me. And my foster sister Percy, well she ignored me at first but damn I am HANDSOME and she couldn’t resist me for long. Ultimately, I am a good boy just looking for someone to love.

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. She is crated when her foster family leaves and she also sleeps in the crate at night. She is a sweet girl that would do great in an active family!
