Another sad story today.💔DeeDee spent her whole life with a loving mom, but when her mom died, the children dumped her at a kill shelter, where she was placed on the euthanasia list. 😢 DeeDee is a beautiful house, crate, and leash trained 4 year old, 62 lb Lab/Pit/possibly Plott Hound mix (best guess!) who is in SC and looking for a NY/tri-state area FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME. Her SC foster mom says, "When DeeDee first came to me, she was fearful and confused. She stayed in her crate with the door open, except for going outside to potty, and would cry in her sleep. Broke my heart. BUT, she has really blossomed over the past few weeks! She is extremely sweet, no aggression whatsoever, loves toys and balls, and her favorite game is fetch (although she's still working on bringing ball back to me. She 'd prefer if I chase her around the yard!) She goes outside and looks at me with sparkling eyes wanting me to throw the ball. It is so precious! She's on the bigger side, so I'd recommend older children who she won't knock down by mistake during playtime. She gets along very nicely with my own dogs, and she's just an overall loving and gentle girl. She is spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. Adoption fee is $375.

Heartbreaking story ahead. This is Oliver, who we rescued from Puerto Rico along with his brother Opie. Oliver was adopted into a wonderful home with an amazing dad who adores him, and the feeling is definitely mutual. (He follows his dad everywhere he goes.) Sadly, Oliver's dad has Parkinson's Disease, and in the past few months his health has taken a dramatic turn for the worse. His family has tried to think of every possible option for Oliver to remain with his dad, but for his safety and well-being, his dad needs to be moved to a facility. :( The entire family is heart broken, and Oliver's dad is beside himself. Before he goes into the facility, his one wish is that this sweet boy finds a home where he will receive all of the love he has now from his dad. Oliver is a house trained 1 year old, 43 lb White German Shepherd/Hound (best guess) mix who is said to be simply a wonderful dog. He loves everyone, is very friendly, has great indoor manners, and really, just wants to be a member of the family. He is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated, and his adoption fee is $425.

We’re sure these beautiful eyes have quite a story to tell. Frankie, a house trained 1 year old, 40 lb Shepherd mix, is a sweet and gentle boy who probably didn’t have the best life before being rescued because he’s initially pretty shy and reserved. Frankie is 100% devoted to his people, and once he warms up, you will be his and he will be yours forever. He’s has a sweet soul and is very gentle with kids of all ages. He enjoys the company of other dogs, and we think he’d probably prefer another low key dog best because he’s not a super high energy dude. Frankie’s Long Island foster home adores him, and so will you. Our sweet boy will absolutely flourish in a loving and patient home. He’s not a huge fan of the crate, so he’d like a home where he will not be crated. He is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated, and his adoption fee is $425.

Our sweet boy has a gentle soul, and all he wants is a loving home where he will be someone's very best friend. Kobe is a 2 year old, 50 lb Collie/Harrier mix (best guess) who is a super loving, easygoing, and submissive boy. He thinks people big and small are great, and he really LOVES to play with other dogs. Truthfully, Kobe is never going to be the life of the party. An exciting night for him is pretty much hanging on the couch binged watching Netflix, so he’d be very content in a home without a ton of chaos. He holds his back leg up when he walks, but our vet said this is due to an old injury and no additional care is required. He is not in any pain, and trust us, he has a GREAT time running and wrestling in the backyard with his canine foster sister. Kobe is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, and his adoption fee is $425.

Some dogs just want to be someone's best friend, and Ginger is one of those pups! This pretty girl is an approx 3 year old, 33 lb Beagle (best guess) mix who loves all people and is incredibly devoted to everyone around her. Her Long Island foster mom says that Ginger is a quiet, low-key dog who is happy to lounge on the couch most of the day. She's great with anyone who comes into the house (kids included!) and goes right up to say hello. Her favorite place is right by her foster mom's side, and she's going to make a wonderful BFF. We're not sure about cats, but based on her personality, we think she'd be fine. Ginger is spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated, and her adoption fee is $375.

If you’re not familiar with the breed, let us tell you what you’ve been missing! Chip, a crate trained 3 year old, 48 lb Treeing Walker Coonhound mix, is a handsome dude whose personality is wonderful. This gorgeous boy is affectionate, gentle, and playful, and he gets along very well with other dogs. He’s a human lover, so he’ll be thrilled to have some of his very own to snuggle and play with him. He LOVES to sleep next to his person all cuddled up (which is super cute!) We don’t know about cats. Chip is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, and his adoption fee is $375.

She's pretty perfect (if we do say so ourselves!). This little cutie is Annie, a 6 month old, 25 lb Lab/Whippet (best guess - she has very long legs!) mix whose Long Island foster mom says, "Annie is a beautiful, loveable, sweet girl who would do great in ANY family. She loves everyone she meets, enjoys taking walks (she's a huge hit in Northport village!), is great in the car, has been perfect with every other dog she has met, and is 100% house trained. We take her everywhere, so she's been very well socialized. She just an amazing pup!" Annie is spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. Her adoption fee is $500.

Pretty, sweet, and loyal….that’s our Lilly! This beauty found herself in a SC kill shelter, but she’s now safe and looking for a FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME of her very own. Lilley is a 1-2 year old, 32 lb Foxhound/Beagle mix (best guess) who is extremely friendly, very loving, and extremely eager to please. She gets along great with other dogs, and she’s going to make a fantastic family dog. She’s also perfectly proportioned for all exciting family adventures! Lilley is spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated, and her adoption fee is $450.

Sugar...yes please! You can't ask for a friendlier girl, so her name definitely fits. Sugar is house and crate trained 1 year old, 35 lb Lab/Pit (best guess) mix who is full of sweetness, love, and ready to spread her joy in a FOREVER home. She loves giving kisses to all people big and small (she's great with kids!), and she has the best time playing with her doggie friends. Her Long Island foster mom says Sugar is a sucker for attention, and when she's not cuddling with her humans, she entertains herself quite happily playing with her favorite toys - stuffed squeaky toys, ropes, and kongs. She is up to date on vaccines, microchipped and spayed. Her adoption fee is $425.

Thanks to my dear friend Shannon Jones, Hannah is happily being loved and spoiled in SC, but we'd be thrilled to find her a FOREVER HOME of her very own up north. We believe Hannah was hit by a car as a young baby and left, so she walks a little bit "funny" due to a possible head injury. Does this stop her from running and playing? No, it definitely does not! She is VERY gentle with kids, and she LOVES to play with all other dogs (the little puppies adore her because she snuggles with them so sweetly.) We think she has limited vision in her left eye, but truthfully, she is as loving, affectionate, and happy as they come in puppy land. THIS is the kind of pup who makes the MOST amazing family dog. She will always know she has been rescued, and she will thank her family forever. She'd probably do best in a home without a ton of steps, but if you're willing to carry her up and down longs flights of stairs, she'd be quite content. Hannah is microchipped and vaccinated. She will be spayed immediately upon arrival to NY at OAAR's expense. Adoption fee is $425.

If you’re looking for a smoochable love bug, Finn is perfect for the part! Finn is a house and crate trained 1 year old, 44 lb Lab/Border Collie mix who is pure perfection. His Long Island foster mom says, “Finn is absolutely delicious! He’s very calm, but he also likes to play, which is the perfect combination. He’s a huge snuggler- he slept pressed up against me all night. I had a 2 year old over, and he’s fantastic with the baby. He’s also really good with my grumpy terrier!” Finn is going to slip into any home with ease. He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, and his adoption fee is $500.

Big pup alert!! Our super handsome Ernie is a 7 month old, 45 lb Lab/Mastiff mix (best guess!) who is a bit on the shy side initially, but once he know you love him, you'll be rewarded with never ending devotion. This guy is truly man's best friend! He's good with other dogs, good with cats, totally house trained, and with a bit of patience and love while he warms up, he is going to be an amazing BFF. His Long Island foster mom says he's a VERY intelligent pup who picks up on new things very quickly. He has always had female foster moms, so an ideal home would be with a mom of his very own (but a patient dad would work as well). He is up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and neutered. His adoption fee is $500.

Yes, we know Chihuahuas can be a bit, shall we say.....temperamental. But that's what makes Bugsy here so special! Bugsy is a house trained 2 year old, 10 lb Chi mix who has a fantastic personality. This little guy was found wandering alone in collar, no chip, infested with fleas, 4 rotten teeth, and suffering from a bird shot wound. Thank goodness he's all healed up now and as healthy as can be. His Long Island foster mom can’t stop singing his praises! Bugsy has a VERY easygoing personality and just wants to be right by his human’s side. He gets along great with other dogs (those that won’t smush him, of course!), LOVES kids, rides nicely in the car, and will definitely steal your heart. He freezes with loud noises while on a walk (mufflers, lawn mowers, etc…), so we don’t see him as a city dog. Bugsy is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. His adoption fee is $425.

When we saw this handsome little boy sitting sadly on the cement floor in a SC kill shelter, we immediately said we would take him! Finley is a 7 month old, 28 lb Lab/ Flat Coat Retriever mix (best guess - although he’s a bit on the petite side!) who wants to be someone’s best friend. He loves to play with other dogs, and he is a total sweetie pie with all humans, kids included. (We don’t know about cats.) He’s still young, and he will pretty much slip easily into any home. Finley is microchipped, vaccinated, and neutered. His adoption fee is $500.

We really have no idea WHY a family would give up such an amazing dog (they don’t “have time” for him), but their loss is going to be one lucky family’s HUGE gain! Buddy is a house and crate trained 10 month old, 63 lb Great Pyrenees/American Bulldog mix who is very playful, incredibly friendly, rides nicely in the car, LOVES to give kisses, and welcomes tons of affection (He will happily climb into any unoccupied lap!). We know that his mom is a purebred Great Pyrenees and dad is a purebred American Bulldog. Buddy is very patient and submissive with the 3 kids in his current home, playful with other dogs, and is always up for a swim on a hot day. He also gets along with cats! He’s still young, so he may chew a few shoes if given the chance, but he’s worth it! Buddy is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated, and his adoption fee is $500.
