DogsWiggles (Cocker Spaniel, Adult, Female, Medium) [pictured above] - My name is Wiggles. I am a very nice, spayed, reddish blonde 5 year old cocker girl. My owners had me for a year and then turned me into a SC shelter because they could no longer afford to care for me. The shelter staff really liked me and asked for rescue help.
I came to CCR with a cherry eye, so these nice folks made an appointment to get it fixed for me and then I had recovery time afterwards to make sure it held. I also tested as heartworm positive, so I needed treatment to get me well. This has also been done and I just have a few more weeks of recovery time before I can go to a forever home. I am micro-chipped and an active, playful, friendly, affectionate girl. I lived with 2 other dogs, had a good life and was kept inside. My owner told the shelter staff that I am house trained, so I might just need your patience to adjust to a new daily house routine. I have not been in a home with children or cats. When I meet new people or other dogs, it takes me a little time to warm up and then I am a happy, friendly girl. Please consider adopting me. I am an active, busy cocker. I will be a wonderful companion to spend quality time with and love. I will be a great best friend, good walking pal and I would love to be your sweet baby girl.
Pugsley (Pug Mix, Young, Male, Small) - My name is Pugsley. I am 4 years old and a small pug mix boy. I lived with an elderly man who could no longer care for me because he went into a nursing home. His family knew that I had been very loved and well cared for, but sheltered from other dogs. Because my social skills weren't the best, I came to rescue.
I am neutered, heartworm negative and a healthy boy. My owner dearly loved me but he never took me anywhere except to the vet, so I lived a sheltered life in his house. Because I did not know how to get along with other dogs, his family asked for help to get me a good home. If this rescue had not taken me, I would have been scared and alone in a shelter. These folks have been good to me, have helped me to overcome my issues by improving my social skills, and I can now play and interact well with other dogs. I have been here in rescue for a year. I love playing with my foster buddies but some of them have been adopted and I would like to find my forever home too. Please give me a 2nd chance........ I would love to meet you!
