I admit that I’m a bad interview! Volunteers have been reluctant to show me to potential adopters because I usually throw a tantrum that scares (the “s” is silent!) visitors away. Yet, most of the volunteers still love me — they are on to my antics and working to communicate to me that nobody will love me if I keep acting so poorly in front of them.


My apparent border collies (the “s” is silent!) breed mix is famous for being somewhat skittish, and at first I only liked the ladies. But there are many male volunteers here and I’ve quickly learned that they are cool, too. Of course, they all took the time to bring me along which has paid off for all of us.


Originally transported from the hurricane that hit SC, I have been frustrated by kennel confinement and gained some weight which I will happily “run off” with an active person who jogs or skates or hikes. A special volun-teer takes me for runs on the weekends which does a lot for my mood and calms me down.


Any experienced dog owner, particularly one with border collie knowledge would love me after spending 30 minutes working with me. I am way smart — sitting, lying down and making eye contact for treats — and ready to learn a whole lot more. I just need the chance.

Pucker up, ‘cause I’m coming in for a smooch! I have been one of the lucky ones to be transported from S.C. But I am anxious to move on to a real home and family that will love me.

With my cinnamon coat and golden eyes, I am an adorable package just about 45 lbs. My underbelly gives me away as having been a new mom before my arrival. Now, I’m a major-league wiggle-butt with a constantly wagging tail and happy to be in the presence of people.

I have been to a few offsite events where I get to meet and greet people of all ages. At my worst, I jump on people with unbridled enthusiasm, but mostly I just flip over for some belly rubs and lick faces whenever it is least expected.

My age has been estimated between 2 and 4, but many here think I’m even younger than that with my clean teeth and puppy-like appearance.
I pull on leash walks initially but settle down after a few minutes. I would make a great walking partner for someone and an even better cuddle-bug.

My owner got sick and could no longer care for me and my brother, Max. At four years old, we ended up in a shelter awaiting a new person to adopt us, hopefully together since it seemed unlikely that Max, who is deaf, would be adopted on his own. And to mine and everyone’s surprise, Max was sprung a while ago and now it’s my turn.

I’ve been complaining about spending so much time in a kennel, and relish every opportunity to get out for a walk with volunteers even when it’s so hot. I just want to be with people. One of the volunteers has been taking me home for some sleep-overs at his house and it’s been such a stress-reliever. I get to sit in his chair like the queen of the house. He knows I’m housebroken and not going to chew anything, since I’m a grown up – not a puppy. I’m a little shy with new people. They surround me and stare at me and it feels overwhelming sometimes, but I’m still a good girl and let them pet me and even kiss my head.

I’m not hard to walk on leash and I like a lot of the dogs I’ve met. The company of other dogs has made losing Max a little easier. I’m even helping another scared dog come out of his shell bey walking with him. And when I visited with the cats, I was courteous and quiet.

Being an eye-catching bluetick coonhound, people are attracted to my unique good looks. They need to see how sweet and loving I am on the inside, too. All it takes is some time and patience to find that I am a great choice for so many families.

Hi! I'm Big Ed ... Eddie to my friends and I have lots of friends here. They use words like “cool” and “chill” to describe my personality and they hang on for dear life when we're out for a walk, because I'm a BIG boy. I have pulling power but I'm not trying to drag you down. I just want to check everything out and I want company while I'm doing that. They have worked with me to slow me down. If I hear the word “stop”, I stop with my walker and wait till I hear “heel” to get moving again.

My golden eyes will meet yours with warmth and affection. My pink nose and lips form an adorable pucker of pleasure when people want to pet me. I take treats gently -- always sitting on command and offering up a paw. I know how things work! My girlfriend, Lilly and I were not living in a good situation. We were left alone for soooo long that sometimes the neighbor would have to come feed us. At about 5 years old, I show the young dogs what it means to be a gentleman with people. I don't jump on them and push them around. I wait for an invitation and when beckoned, I happily plop my head in laps for a good face massage. Although I might sniff at the counter where the doughnuts sit, I have manners and do not try to snatch them.

With a little bit of help, I could learn to walk nicely on leash and that would bring me to the brink of perfection. I now am not the biggest dog here. In fact, there are quite a few big dogs waiting for a home right now. Big dogs almost always wait longer. Big is not bad...big is beautiful!

Why the long face, you ask? I have had two strikes and am up to bat once again in searching for the right home.

There are some dogs I like and some I don’t (just like you) and the first time I left, the resident dog and I did not see eye to eye over food. I came back and then had a second outing with a family. There was a 2-year-old child and we got along famously. Unfortunately, the potty-training did not go well and they got frustrated with me and brought me back. Now that I’ve come clean, let me tell you about all the good stuff! I’m so affectionate and tolerant at being handled by all people, big and small. I adore being outside with my nose to the ground. I don’t jump up on people, mostly ignore other dogs and I’m drop-dead gorgeous.

When I visit with people in the volunteer trailer, I’m in heaven...even okay wearing a belly band to prevent an accidental squirt in my attempt to cover up those other dog smells.

Housebreaking should not be a problem for experienced dog owners and the volunteers will provide a lot of guidance. I’m in prime shape for active people who want a running companion by day and a cuddler at night.

I’m not much for treats or toys. I’d rather be with people exploring the world. You might be tempted to say I ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog, but an uber-sweet one for sure. When it comes to lovin’ — I rock. The best thing for me is to roll out of here with someone(s) who will love me, train me and help me be the best that I can be.

When it’s time to “Buddy Up” I hope you think of me. Having the most popular name for a dog has gotten me nowhere so far. I was in a foster home for a few months but my foster mom worked long hours and I was alone too much. I’m very good company — social, outgoing and loyal to a fault. Some other great qualities I possess include being potty-trained and walking well on leash.

There are some dogs I like and others I tolerate but I won’t be pulling your arm out to lunge at them. I don’t care that much. I can even live peaceably with a cat if the situation calls for it. I’m very flexible! Specifically, I am your basic, mid-size, middle-age, beagle-boxer mix with a little extra padding that I’m hoping to walk off. Maybe we can do that together.
