Swain was picked up as a stray in Cherokee County and his future looked bleak until BarkVille was able to step in and place him in a wonderful foster home where he is putting on weight and regaining his strength. His foster mom says Swain is an inquisitive, quiet, snuggler who is good on a leash, knows basic commands, and likes to maneuver his blankets with his paws & teeth to make himself a pillow! He is a medium energy boy who likes playing fetch and destroying balls & toys in the yard (kongs recommended). He is housebroken, crate trained, neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Swain is HW+ and is currently available for a foster-to-adopt situation until his HW treatment is complete and he is medically cleared for adoption.
Neely is a calm, cuddly, medium energy dog who was taken from an unlivable hoarding situation and has proven herself to be a very good girl. She gets excited when her foster mom comes home from work and is willing to do anything to please her people. She is a solid, chunky little low rider and needs a forever family without young children (teens are fine) because she plays hard & can knock a small child over when she jumps with joy. She also needs to be an only pet because she does not like other dogs in her space. She loves to take walks, is working on her leash manners daily, and does well with corrections when structure is given. She loves treats and will accept them gently from your hand in a sitting position.
Bella Rose was picked up as a stray, but we believe she may have been someone’s pet because she has beautiful house manners and is friendly & obedient. She likes people of all ages, knows basic commands, is eager to please, and takes corrections well. She is a typical scrappy little terrier, but she gets anxious when she sees other dogs and she has scars on her back that suggest she may have been attacked by another dog in the past. She has a high prey drive so she’s looking for an only dog home with no cats or possibly a home with larger, well balanced dogs that she could coexist with after slow introductions. She is nervous & reactive on walks and has received professional training to address this behavior, but she needs a strong leader who will continue working with her to build trust so she feels safe.
