Marsha, Jan and Cindy

4 years old, Marsha is pregnant, sweet girls



Bonnie was dumped at the shelter after her owner left her with a relative.  She is a Cocker Spaniel,  about 2 years old and loves every human she meets! She is crate-trained but working on her leash skills as she was never walked with her previous owner. Bonnie would be an ideal companion dog and loves male dogs. She can be grouchy with females (at first meet) but now that she is spayed this should dissipate. Bonnie would love to shower her humans with affection and also enjoys rolling around on the carpet to scratch her back, with a ball in her mouth. She would love a house with kids over 5 and looks forward to finding someone to play fetch with!


Tess was given up by her owner because she would jump the four foot fence to visit the neighbors and their dog. Tess couldn't be more loving or sweet. She is calm, wants to be with her person and will make an ideal companion dog. Tess is four years old, 70lbs and is good with kids, cats, chickens and dogs. This Great Pyranese deserves the life her owner could not give her and is looking for her ideal home now that she has completed heart worm treatment.  Located in NC.

Jimmy is a five year old Jack Russell mix whose mom went to senior living. No one stepped up to take Jimmy which is a sad fate for a beloved dog but often the case when plans aren't made ahead of time for the care of a pet. Jimmy is a  true companion dog who loves his people and enjoys playing with other dogs. He is a special little guy and under 25lbs. Jimmy is settling in at his foster home but wants to find his forever family who won't leave him again. He would prefer kids over 10 as he hasn't lived with children in the past. Located in CT.


11 weeks, heading north on 6/30



Olive is one of those special dogs that you see and can't "not take". She was set to go down shortly and her terrified expression is evidence that she felt it. Olive was a shelter favorite and suffered from Black Dog Syndrome which got her on the euth list. We are lucky to have saved her in the eleventh hour. Olive is a great dog who is very affectionate and intelligent. She enjoys chasing squirrels, is food motivated and learns very quickly with verbal and visual commands. She is well socialized with other animals (cats,dogs,birds) and always happy to make new friends. Her foster mom trains service dogs and says, "I really think she would be an excellent emotional support or service animal". Located in TX.

I would say that Sally is a special girl, but that wouldn't do her justice.  Sally was being neglected for years and showed up at the shelter with a double ear infection, numerous skin infections and eyes so matted with "gook" that she couldn't see.  Since joining LBDR and a wonderful foster about one month ago, Sally has regained her sight, her ears are being treated for yeast rods, her third skin issue (also yeast) is clearing up and her gorgeous coat is coming back. Sally is a spunky, playful senior who adores other dogs, but would like to be loved on more than anything. She is affectionate and likes to nuzzle any human who gives her a warm look, enjoys walking on the beach and just began to swim! Sally would like to retire in a home where she is loved and cared for the what a dog is supposed to be. She's around 9/10 years young, possibly a Boykin spaniel mix, and is around 45lbs. Sally knows commands, is house-broken and lets you know when she needs to go out. She walks beautifully on a leash and entertains herself by tossing toys around the room! You couldn't ask for an easier, more devoted dog! Located in SC.

Adoption Pending

Catherine is an adorable  35lb, one year old girl who is full of spunk and love, despite her rough start in life. Catherine has come so far since leaving the shelter.  She is loved by everyone she meets and was calm and gentle on a recent visit with an adult with special needs. She may be a therapy dog! She loves both dogs and kids and would love a canine sibling to run laps around the yard with.  This is a GREAT dog who is being overlooked because of her breed and color! Catherine is located in VA.


 11 weeks, retriever mix


Kingston is a HANDSOME, 11 month old, 70lb boxer mix who is easy-going and "laid back" according to his foster. This gentle giant was dumped by his family when they moved but avoided the shelter because someone knew how wonderful he was and begged for help. Kingston is great with kids and other dogs is one of those, "easy" dogs who just win your heart and want to hang out. Crate-trained and housebroken, this guy is a gem! Heads north 6/30.


 Pearl is a 10 month old spunky shepherd mix! Pearl loves other dogs but needs to be acclimate to small dogs and cats as she doesn't have experience with them yet and is still a bouncy puppy. She does well with kids  and would thrive in a home with an active child (or adult) that she could accompany on hikes, swims, or running. She absolutely LOVES playing in water and being outside. She is crate-trained and housebroken. Once she trusts you, she is extremely affectionate and loves for her face to be stroked and to kiss/be kissed! Pearl would love an active home with a large fenced yard and would be an ideal second dog. She is located in NC.

Margo is a lovely, sweet, calm and affectionate hound mix who was set to go down when the shelter was full. At only 42lbs, Margo is the perfect size and walks well on a leash. She is coming out of her shell daily and enjoying life on the couch. She adores the resident cat and even kisses him along with loving her canine foster brothers. Margo is an ideal companion dog who is gentle and sweet and will need patience to become a confident girl. Margo ADORES children! She is heart worm positive, will receive treatment and available to travel north at the end of July but can go to a Southern home anytime. Located in SC.

Adoption Pending

Sweetest girl Sadieis a little piece of heaven. Dumped by her owner because she "didn't like having her hair pulled by the new baby". Sadie is around 6 years old, a few pounds too heavy  (around 15) and has the softest coat imaginable. She seems to be a Doxie/Chi mix and adores sitting on her person's lap and being loved. Sadie is an ideal companion dog who will be a wonderful addition to a home that will love her as much as she loves them. She will be ready for a northern forever home in mid-July but is ready to go to a southern home today! Located in SC. 

Abby is a PRECIOUS 10 week old lab mix who steals everyone's heart! She loves playing with her friends, sitting on laps and  is crate-training. Abby is being fostered with kids and dogs and is an easy-going puppy. She is looking for an adopter who is home during the day to give her the care and training she needs. 



Coming Soon...


Sheba is a gorgeous six year year old lab mix who just wants a companion. She was dumped in a scary shelter and set to go down because of her heart worm status but we were able to save her. Sheba was likely an outdoor dog and enjoys lying in the sunshine and will approach you while lifting her back leg to have her belly rubbed! She prefers to stay with her human and has done a great job of acclimating to crowded settings and loves to go for walks. She is 75lbs and a lower energy girl so ideal for an older person who is looking for a buddy. Sheba is being fostered with kids but is not interacting with them so that will take time and patience. Sheba is located in CT.




Tilly is a precious, 30lb Feist mix who is only 1/2 years old. Tilly was about to go down in Texas and a volunteer asked us to step up because she was so sweet. Tilly plays like a champ and would be a great second dog. She sits on laps like a toy breed and adores her people. She would be a great companion dog for someone who likes to get out and walk/hike. Tilly has an old knee injury that caused her growth plate to heal a little larger on one knee but it doesn't need surgery and won't impact her life. She plays like a champ and fetches like a pro! She is great with kids and is not affected by cats! Great girl! Located in PA.

Betsy is a gorgeous one year old girl who was dumped at a Texas shelter. She was to be put down but volunteers begged for a rescue because of her sweetness. She is 49lbs, loves other dogs and adores her humans. Her foster family says she is easy-going and polite. Betsy is crate-trained and housebroken. She has just completed heart worm treatment and we have learned that she has cataracts (likely genetic) so we are preparing her for eye surgery. She will be ready for her forever home in mid-July.
