Carolina Dog

Murdock

Murdock
This happy little boy is representative of Annie's Orphans' dedication to the foundations that "LIFE MATTERS" and "EVERYONE DESERVES A FAIR CHANCE." This young Carolina Dog mix and his brother were transferred to us a mere two-hours before their brief lives were scheduled to come to an end. Little is known about their back-story, but they were picked up as strays with evidence of physical trauma -- presumably from abuse. The outcome of that, for Murdock, is what appears to be trauma-related brain-injury, with resulting developmental delays and visual "miswiring." Murdock is now one year old and, steadily, as the months pass, we see him evolving, with clear signs of incremental improvement [ex: increased visual tracking ability and less time "watching airplanes" that don't exist (not to us, at least)]! Despite his life-challenges and tough breaks, Murdock is one of the most innocent and happiest beings on earth, which says much about him! He would be best suited for a home that has plenty of love to give and can both accommodate his differences and support his potential. We have reason to believe that Murdock will blossom -- given a supportive environment, with exposure to standard doggy life-tasks, as well as graduated introduction to all types of stimulation. In return, this fellow will delight you daily with his unwavering optimism, his cute antics and his absolute lovability!

Adopt a senior - Swayze

Adopt a senior - Swayze
Swayze has a "complex personality" -- He gets very attached to "his" people, LOVES playing with kids and is fun to watch as he entertains himself with his jolly ball and tries to get the attention of visitors with his squeaky toys. He's also good with other dogs. Meanwhile, when bonded with core people, he can become protective of his family and their space and can act suspicious and guarded where strangers are concerned. He would only be a candidate for adoption to the right person: someone who is very dog-savvy and would offer consistent and appropriate training and guidance around Swayze's guarding behaviors.  The ideal setting would be a low-bustle, predictable living situation, with few comings and goings of non-core people.  Swayze is around 9 years old. UPDATE: Swayze was recently diagnosed with Pemphigus Erythematosus.

Andy

Andy
Andy is another of our fabulous Carolina Dog mixes and is sooo cute, with his huge ears and his lighter-colored mask! Andy came to us from an out-of-state shelter via foster-care. He is a bit shy, but enjoys solid bonds with people. Andy is around 7 years old, and has had house-training in the past, but will need a refresher-course upon adoption. Contact us about this special boy!

Charlie2

Charlie2
Charlie is a Carolina Dog from Tijuana. He is a very handsome young fellow, approximately two years of age, with nice coloring and ears sized for function! He is good with dogs and children, but not with cats. Charlie is good-natured and active. He would likely be fantastic in agility classes. Potential adopters will need to have a secure yard. Charlie also will need more training on leash.

ADOPT A SENIOR - Doogan

ADOPT A SENIOR - Doogan
Everyone always smiles when they see Doogan, because he carries his toys around in his mouth, just vibing out an invitation to play or visit. For all his winning charms, Doogan is another AO dog who has been here an inexplicably long time. Still, this is one dog who can capture hearts with his searching eyes and inviting expression! Doogan is a broad-headed, short-haired mix who came from a local reservation. He is approx. 45 lbs and 10 years old. Doogan has some facial scars from a rough past, but has left all that behind! He has a preference for a female owner, loves other dogs (No cats) and is attentive to direction. We believe he will make a loving and loyal addition to your family!

Sampson

Sampson
Sampson is a cute and wonderful boy who needs a little more confidence to overcome his shyness. He has, however, made lots of progress. He is great with other dogs and is always ready to play. Sampson is good on leash and is learning his commands well. He just needs a stable family to show him that not all people are mean and nasty. He is 3 years old. A fenced yard will be an absolute necessity. Email your inquiry and come see this active boy play!

Adopt A Senior - Sammy

Adopt A Senior - Sammy
Sammy is now 9 years old and is a good, but very shy, one-person dog. She would be excellent for a single-person household. A patient individual with a lot of doggy-know-how would be the ideal match. Sammy needs a secure, fenced yard. She tends to be dominant with other dogs, but can get along with them. Sammy came to our shelter from a rescue in Dulce.

Annabella

Annabella
Annabella came to us from a Denver shelter, via foster care. She is 7 years old, responsive and good on a leash. The exclusive focus provided to her by one of our dedicated volunteers has paid off in big ways: Annabella completed a doggie "manners" class and was a star pupil !! She has a lot of energy and benefits from good direction and consistency. She ABSOLUTELY LOVES people and is exceptionally good with kids. Annabella has very pretty features and lots of charm! Now, the reason she hasn't yet been adopted --with other dogs, Annabella is territorial of her space and can be dog aggressive. Although she has been doing much better in that department, she will prefer placement as a solo pet.
