Please note, as of March 1, 2017, the adoption fee will increase to $325.00. All adoptable dogs will be up-to-date on vaccines, spayed/neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped.
These dogs have now been evaluated and deemed healthy enough for adoption. Please note: only those applicants who are already approved can click through the "I'm Interested" button to obtain additional information and apply for the available dog.
Once a dog is made available for adoption, our fosters' role is to evaluate each adoption applicant interested in the dog and then select the applicant that best meets the needs of the dog. Our ultimate goal is that each dog and family is truly a forever match!
As our mission states, all of our intakes are considered "at-risk;" however, some dogs are also deemed "special needs" rescues. Special needs dogs are those that will need extensive, long-term specialized care, some for the duration of their lives, but are not deemed unadoptable as with Permanent Foster Care dogs. Some special needs dogs will require a forever home close to a specialty veterinary hospital or vet school; some near a rehabilitation facility; some will require on-going intensive, specialized behavioral management training, etc. Because of the extraordinary demands of the attention, time, care and commitment required for them, special needs rescues are not generally open for adoption to the general public and BSR directly places these dogs with forever families who can meet their needs. If you are interested in adopting a special needs dog, please let us know!
Meet Lola! BSR 1198
Hey there, I’m Lola but my foster mom calls me “little girl”.... well because I AM a little girl, at about 25 lbs. I love you once I get to know you.....I am a little timid at first. But I am a sweet heart and so grateful to be loved and cared for now. I am learning about something called socialization and will need to be in a one dog household....just me!
They think I am about 9 years old. I don’t talk about my life before BSR rescued me from the shelter but I was pretty sad. I was malnourished, with ear infections and worse of all, those nasty heart worms. I am so much better now.... Heartworm free, my ear infections have cleared up (although I have lost a little hearing in my right ear because the infections were so bad) and I have been spayed. I am also micro chipped and up to date on all my vaccines. I have gained weight because I get 3 squares a day and believe me, I will remind you if you forget. I am good about that!
I am sweet and shy. My foster mom says I’m still learning about this “normal dog thing.” I didn’t know it could be so much fun! I like to walk on a leash and will retrieve for awhile. Most of all I love a lap and lots of love. I need to be the only dog. I like all the attention and am not to happy to share the lime light. I am house trained and have never had an accident. I especially love my crate and feel safe there.
I am fine with adults, but no little children. I don’t like cats and I am not crazy about other dogs.
My best forever home is with someone who is home most of the day and who will continue my training and has lots of time and attention for me. I will need regular, twice a week, ear cleaning. Like I mentioned, I need to be an only dog and need my new humans to be able to manage my lack of socialization and help me improve with time and training. So, what do you say....do you have an empty lap? I can help you with that!
Lola is being fostered in North Carolina and is a Seniors for Seniors eligible dog.
