Dallas, terrier mix
Dallas is a female terrier mix currently housed at Maggie Lu's Safe Haven Rescue, Inc.
Dallas will get along great with your other dogs. She is looking for a cat-free family. She is already house-trained. Dallas is already spayed and vaccinated.
From Dallas' current caretaker:
Meet Ms. Dallas, a three year old amazingly sweet terrier mix, who is totally vetted, microchipped and spayed. This young lady had a very rough start, and was severely neglected by her previous owner, but that didn't stop her from loving humans. Dallas can be dog selective and would do better being an only dog.

Reecy, Great Pyrenees and American bulldog mix
Reecy is a winsome female Great Pyrenees and American bulldog mix staying at North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue.

From Reecy's current caretaker:
Reecy is a goofy and sweet seven year old mix. We're not 100% sure of her mix but her body looks Great Pyrenees but her face looks more like a bull dog - what an interesting mix. Reecy is a big girl, who isn't fully aware of her size. She weighs about 75 lbs and is quite strong. She is looking for her forever home and ideally one who will work on her manners (i.e., teaching her not to jump).

Demi, hound and American Staffordshire terrier mix
Demi is a charming female hound and American Staffordshire terrier mix being kept at Catering To Cats & Dogs, Inc.
Demi would do great in a home with children — she's a real "people pet." No other pets please: She is looking for forever home without other dogs or cats. Demi is already spayed, and she has had all her shots. No need to worry: She is already house-trained.
Demi's current caretakers say:
Meet sweet Demi....A.K.A. the belly rub queen! Demi has been overlooked time and time again, and we can't seem to understand why. Demi loves nothing more than to get a belly rub. She's quick to flop over and dangle her arms in the air for you to give her a nice long belly scratch. Demi loves humans of all sizes but will need to be the only pet in her forever home. What's so wrong with wanting to be the apple of your eye?

Hunk of love? That's me! I'm Big Boi. I'm a pretty lazy guy who is looking to find a family to love me. Big Boi must be the only pet in the home (no dogs, no cats). I love to cuddle and I get along with kiddos. Belly rubs are me favorite and I'll lay there all day. I enjoy going for walkies and sniffing all the things.
