When Charles arrived he was very sad and had no trust in a human. Charles was found with bad acid burns on his back and starving. In his foster home he was very shy and it took time for him to come out of his shell but he did! His foster parents had him for around 6 months until they were sure he was ready to go to his new home. He was at first the perfect dog in his new home. but as time went on he became very protective of the lady of the household and decided he did not like men. The new family was devastated as they they had grown to love him. We believe Charles is around 6-7 years old. He is housebroken.

Charles is a dog who needs time but is full of love. We recommend a experienced family or owner who has had experience with rescue dogs.

Marlin was found as a stray in Georgia and was a shelter favorite. He is around 1 1/2 to 2 years-old, and we believe that he is a Black Mouth Cur. He is loving, kind, and sweet. He is great with humans and kids, but we are not sure about how he behaves around other dogs. Marlin always wants to play, as he has alot of pent up energy, and would be a great dog to have as a running companion.

Marlin knows basic commands and is housebroken. All he really wants to do is cuddle, be petted, and give kisses! Come visit Marlin! He is curious, loves his walks, and is waiting to meet you!
