Meet Spencer!

Meet Spencer!


He loves to play with tennis balls. He loves to fetch the ball, so he can be chased to retrieve it. He loves long walks, however loves playing in the yard much more. Spencer does not like the thunder. He awaits at the door to get his feet dried so as not to dirty the floor.

Spencer does however, love the snow! Spencer loves to give kisses and likes to get belly rubs. He lies down paws up so he can get his "rubbie bellie." Spencer loves to sit by his family nights, while they are enjoying television. When he is sleeping do not approach him by surprise, it makes him jumpy. Spencer gets very sleepy about 9:30pm to 10:30 pm. He will not go into his room until all lights are out and told go to your room. He is an all around joy to be with. His is up to date on shots, and neutered. Around 2 years old.

We found Spencer through Mountain Rottie Rescue of New York in Monticello, New York.

Meet Buddy!

There is some debate on what Buddy's mix is. There is no debate that he is a sweet, handsome dog. He is shy at first, but warms up. He is quiet and walks nicely on leash. I think he would be happy to be someone's walking or running partner.


He probably would prefer to live in a rural area than in the city. He is about 55 pounds. I don't know why he hasn't been adopted yet. The longer I know him the more I like him. Buddy is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, wormed,

We found Buddy through Give a Dog a Chance Rescue in Goochland, Virginia.

Meet Ruby!

We're turning it over to Ruby!

"I'm a sweet girl who has lots of potential. Being a puppy hasnt been easy and I will need a very patient owner who will give me lots of time to adjust into my forever home. Im really great at giving kisses and sitting in your lap once I get to know you.


I know how to sit and lay down but will definitely require more training (I love to learn). Taking long walks is the woods is my favorite past time and of course getting treats too! I will make a great companion for a dedication owner who is willing to spend lots of time training and socializing me."

We found Ruby through the Central Vermont Humane Society in East Montpelier, Vermont.

Meet Laddie!

Laddie is one of those "glass-half-full" type of dogs. He was surrendered to Charley's because his caretakers were elderly and no longer able to exercise and give Laddie what he needs. If nothing else - his former family sure fed Laddie! He came to Charley's so obese that he could barely walk. He has been with us for about a month - and has now started to run and play like a madman.

He is one of the few dogs that thinks life at the shelter is the best thing since the invention of sliced bread:) We were told that Laddie is a full-blooded Boston Terrier - but he came in weighing 47 lbs (yup - you read that right). He is now probably around 40 lbs - but still has another 10lbs to go to be at a healthy weight. We suspect he might be mixed with something - perhaps Bull Dog. Laddie is approximately 4 years old. Laddie's former family reported that he gets along well with other dogs, cats and children.

We found Laddie through Charley's Strays in Clinton, Maine.

Meet Jax!

Jax is a high energy 2 year old boy, turned in to a shelter by his owners because he was "too jumpy." Jax is very jumpy, and he acts like the anxious kid that could do no right. Seems we are seeing alot of this lately, but it is pretty obvious that no one has done much with Jax.


This boy is cute and very trainable. He just needs some guidance, as many of them do. We know Jax's people are out there; someone who will take some time to work with him, teach him there are rules, limitations and boundaries and give him some loving. This boy is looking for someone who will bring out the best in him..

We found Jax through Companion Golden Retriever Rescue in West Jordan, Utah.

Meet Donny!

"Donny" is an approx 10-yr old purebred vizsla who was a shelter stray and his owner didn't come for him. He's not the most handsome vizsla in the world but the short tail dock is not his fault! He rides well in the car, walks nicely on a lead, has been ok with the other dogs in his foster home and is manageable with cats. He is interested in the cat but a simple "uh-uh" distracts him.


His house manners are good despite the fact that he was probably an outside dog and requires an invitation to come inside. Donny is skinny, so you won't have to look into best weight loss supplements, BOL! He does not get on the furniture... yet. He's a bit of a curmudgeon but if you liked Walter Matthaus character in the film Grumpy Old Men you will love Donny!

Meet Crockett!

Crockett is a very bouncy, fun, clown of a dog. Belly rubs are a favorite and he loves to be picked up and cuddled. He gets along with some other dogs and likes cats.


Crockett walks well on leash and enjoys walks in the country and around town but doesn't want to be petted by strangers. He loves being a buddy and hanging out with the guys. Crockett has a slightly crooked front leg (from birth) but it doesn't keep him from enjoying all kinds of companionable activities.

So far Crockett hasn't shown an interest in fetching but loves a treat filled Kong toy or a tough chewy. He is crate trained and comes with his own.

Crockett would do best with an experienced adopter. If not kept in check by a firm, but gentle hand, he has a tendency to want to take control of the household.

We met Crockett through Safe Haven kennel in Yerington, Nevada.

Meet Gretel!

Gretel and her sister, Zuma, were found abandoned on an Indian reservation by a kind samaritan. Hot, dehydrated, scared and hungry, these pups were extremely lucky that this kind hearted soul happened to be passing by, stopped to pick them up and brought them to us. Straight to the veterinarian they went as we noticed immediately that they were missing their hair over most of their bodies ... the diagnosis was Sarcoptic mange.


That was over four weeks ago and with great veterinary care, follow up and medicated baths, the mange is gone and Gretel's coat is coming in so shiny and full. Zuma has already found a home but Gretel here is still looking for that great forever family. These pups are tremendously smart and Gretel will even sit on command for a treat already! She is so cute you'll definitely want to get her her own custom water bottles! She also adores humans and will snuggle with you, if she is tired that is.

We found Gretel through the Rimrock Humane Society in Roundup, Montana.

Meet Jett!

Jets owners decided to give him up because they didn't quite have the lifestyle for a dog like Jet. Pointers and Labs both tend to be energetic dogs who require daily exercise and prefer to be part of the family. Jet is a very social and friendly dog and when left isolated too long will figure a way to venture out and make some new friends on his own! Jet loves everyone he meets and is always eager for fun.


He has lived harmoniously with cats and gets along with most dogs but can be a bit grumpy with them at times. We're sure since he was a stray he could benefit from a click here to learn more about supplements! Because he has not been well socialized with dogs, he would do best in a home with a more submissive dog, or a dog who would gently teach Jet what is and isnt appropriate dog behavior. This handsome boy is ready to share in all of life's adventures with a new forever family.

We found Jett through the Animal Shelter of Wood River Valley in Hailey, Idaho.

Meet Charlie!

From Charlie...

Woof, woof, woof, my name is Charlie. I am a handsome, young man looking for my forever family. I have been through a lot in my 6 years of life. I am originally from a humane society in Milwaukee Wisconsin where my owners surrendered me because they didn't have enough time to spend with me.

Then I was transfered to a German Shepherd rescue who adopted me out to an older woman. When they gave me a meat bone and her father tried to take it from me, I snapped at him. They returned me to the german shepherd rescue who felt I would do better with another rescue. So Happily Ever After took me in.

Then I was adopted from HEA and spent a long time with that family but one day I was scolding/barking at a neighbor dog and my little brother stepped in front of my face and got nipped, not on purpose. My dad said they had to return me to HEA but my mom and little brothers wanted to keep me...my dad won that battle.

So now here I am...looking for family and love again. I need a family that will be active with me and keep me busy. But I also need a family that is willing to chill with me on the couch and rub my belly. Do you think you could play and exercise with me and then when we are all tired out, just sit with me on the couch?

If you think you could give me everything I need, please come and bring me home. I am a very well mannered man, I just need a family to keep me in line!

~Happily Yours, Charlie
