Apollo


Stunning boy!

Meet handsome Apollo!  Apollo is one of Miss Daisy’s puppies born on Oct. 21, 2018 only 4 days after Miss Daisy came to Dirt Road Doggies Rescue. Miss Daisy lived her entire life on a chain but amazingly she loves everyone and everything she comes in contact with. Her puppies seem to have inherited this characteristic! Miss Daisy is a 4-5 year old hound mix who weighs approximately 60lbs, but we don’t know anything about daddy dog; however, we were told there was an unaltered Golden Retriever that lived nearby. Some of the puppies are golden where other have the most unique and gorgeous brindle coat. Apollo and his litter mates have had 3 puppy boosters and Rabies vaccination. The adoption fee includes one more puppy booster and spay/neuter. Apollo is being fostered on a farm so has been exposed to dogs, cats, and chickens. If you are interested in adopting Apollo, please fill out an online application at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org .

He's a looker!

Blaze, born on November 17, 2018 is one of Autumn’s puppies. Autumn is a 23lb Beagle with Blue Tick markings and all of her puppies’ markings are unique.

Blaze is scheduled for his third puppy booster on January 15th and will be ready for his forever home. According to Blaze’s foster mom, he is a talker, and loves to be held- may turn out to be a Velcro dog. Blaze is sure to be a looker! The adoption fee will include neuter (which we prefer to do between 5-6 months), microchip, and 4th booster.

Candy

Loves belly rubs!

Candy is aptly named & her foster nom can’t say her name without ending it in “kisses” or “cane”. She’s such a little lover! When you first meet her, she’s a bit distrustful, especially of men. Whatever happened in her past must have been a nightmare that she can’t seem to forget. Once you gain her trust, she just wants to be near you, rolling over on her back for belly rubs, snuggling in as close as her muscular, compact little body can get to you. She looks into your eyes with such adoration & love…she just wants to please her family. She loves playing with other dogs, especially her brother, Brock! And, while she usually ignores the cats, she doesn’t seem to care for certain ones. So, she probably shouldn’t have cat siblings. She’s so good in her crate. She is quiet & when it’s time to come out, she stretches slowly & takes her time. When it’s time to go kennel, she will go in willingly with a treat or when her food bowl has been filled. Sometimes she requires kisses & a massage first..lol! She has a heart of gold & boundless love to give. She just needs the right person to come along and show her that we’re not all bad. A special person with a love that will hold her in their heart forever. You won’t be disappointed!
 


Candy was found abandoned during Hurricane Irma who is unfortunately heartworm positive. She will ready for adoption in early December once she finishes her treatment. Candy weighs around 40lbs, is spayed, utd on vaccinations, and is microchipped. She is a beautiful brindle color and we believe she may have some Rhodesian Ridgeback in her like her brother Brock. Adoption applications can be submitted at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org

Ginger's puppies

Cuteness overload!!

Meet Ginger’s puppies! These adorable pups were born on April 13th and are ready to find their forever homes. Of the original 8, we have 2 little ones left Male: Tubby. Female: Mischief. They’ve had all age appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered and are microchipped. The pups are doing well with their crate training, walk well on a leash. They love other dogs and are fine with children and cats. We believe they are tan and white Border Collie/Lab mixes. Momma Ginger came to DRDR pregnant and scared. All Ginger knew was a life in a small wire pen. She had food and clean water so according to local laws, she was well cared for!?! Ginger was one of 40 something dogs in the same situation...on one property....none spayed or neutered. Ginger had these sweethearts in a loving foster home unlike most of her counterparts on the property. The pups should be medium sized dogs when full grown.  To adopt one (or Two!), go to http://www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org/adopt-me-adoption-application

Pupdate: Cinnamon, Colby, Tiny, and Frankie have been adopted.

Grizzly Bear

Snuggle bunny!

Hi my name is Grizzly Bear! I'm approximately a year old and I just want to be loved. I followed my foster brothers and sister home one day and didn't want to leave. I love playing with them because they’re fun. They are 6, 9, and 11. My foster mom says they should have named me teddy bear because I just want love and cuddles! I can get excited when playing, but when I get my hugs and love, I calm right down and melt into you! I love playing with my stuffed animals and playing outside! I have two foster cat siblings too and I just love trying to play with them but they don't wanna play so I just walk away! I am very laid back and just want to be the big baby I am and snuggle up to any part of my family and relax. I am crate trained and haven't had any accidents since my foster mom first brought me in out of the cold and realized when I was telling her I needed to go out because I'm very quiet. I only bark if someone comes up to my home. I'm just looking for the perfect family to be with. One to love me and cuddle me like the big baby I am. Grizzly Bear weighs approximately 52lbs, is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations.

Gypsy

Happy Go Lucky!

Gypsy & Onyx are Sugar’s babies. This little family was found running in the middle of a busy street and came very close to being hit by several cars. A Good Samaritan was able to get them out of harms way and to DRDR for their second chance at a good life. Gypsy & Onxy are Feist mixes, Their estimated birthday is 11/24/18. Onyx is the smaller pup with white on her chest, but mostly black and currently weighs 10 lbs. Gypsy weighs about 15lbs. and has speckled white on her muzzle, chest, and tips of her toes. They’ve had age appropriate vaccinations and are on Nexgard. Both Onyx and Gypsy are outgoing, happy puppies. They love to play with each other and are very curious and interested in any creature that moves. Onyx is a snuggler and really loves being held. Gypsy likes to be held but not as long as Onyx. They are working on crate training but are still too young to make it through the night without an accident.  You just can’t help falling in love with these cuties once you meet them. Could you be their Happily Ever After?

Hank

Life of the party!

This handsome boy is Hank. He's a young, approx. 1 yr old Treeing Walker Coonhound, who is smart, affectionate, goofy & full of zest! Hank is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.
He's vocal but it means he wants to go outside or play. He is the most huggable dog & throws his head back for neck rubs. He knows sit & would probably learn all kinds of tricks quickly.
He's dog friendly, kid friendly & cat curious but mostly just wants to play. Because of his youthful exuberance, I wouldn't put him with small children until he's been trained better.
If you would like to meet this eager to please and playful guy, please complete an application to meet our handsome Hank! You won't be sorry you did!

Houdini

Dance with me!

Hello there! I am a strong, 67 pound, fun-loving, 4 year old American Bulldog who loves car rides, leash walking and pleasing my human! I like to dance for my food and give really big kisses! I love couches and belly scratches and I even like bath time! I don't like to be left alone in the yard, by myself, because I miss my humans so much, I'll do anything to be with them. I'm really great at digging... by the way! I do enjoy being in my cozy crate when my humans have to leave. My foster mommy says I can't be around cats, rabbits, or farm animals. And, small dogs remind me of the aforementioned so I probably shouldn't have a little dog as a sibling.. especially of the bossy variety. But, I do like dogs that are more my size... especially if they love to wrestle like I do!
I really just want a family of my own so I can give hugs and kisses and make them happy! It makes me happy when my humans are happy! And, my smiles are contagious! You definitely need to meet me.. I'm a really cool guy!
I'm neutered,  up-to-date on my vaccinations & heartworm negative. I'm crate trained and even house trained!

Jada

Little Miss

Jada is a fun loving little 1 year old Staffie pup approximately 31 lbs and we believe she may max out to 35-40 lbs. She is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. She loves to play with her ball and is learning when she returns it, it will be thrown again for her to catch! Her foster mom & dad are working on skills & manners, such as walking on a leash and sitting, but it won’t be too long before she is a dignified young lady. Jada is crate trained and working on her potty skills. Her foster home has four dogs and lots of cats and for fun she occasionally takes the cats for a short run. She doesn’t like her kitties to be lazy!  We think Jada will excel with a family that has an active lifestyle since she is a very high-energy dog. A large fenced yard is suggested since there will be lots of daily fetching and playing. Jada would make a great companion for someone who likes to walk, hike, or run as she loves the freedom of being outside but also likes to hang inside with her humans watching a little tellie. Adoption applications can be submitted online at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org Just mention you’re interested in Little Miss Jada! 

Kona

Pep in her step!


Kona, is a beautiful female dog who is 1.5 years old, spayed, up to date on all shots and  heart worm negative. She is a very smart girl. Tell her a command and she does it. She is crate trained, good with older kids, & plays with cats. Good with other dogs she’s met in dog boarding, but may need to be introduced slowly as she can excited. Kona needs an active family with a fenced backyard as she loves to run. She is currently leash walked in her foster home. She is overall a very healthy and good sweet girl and has the prettiest, shiniest coat! Kona weighs approximately 35lb. If interested in adopting Kona, please fill out an adoption application at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org

Mack

True friend!

Unbelievably, handsome and playful Mack was abandoned and left behind when his previous family moved. He was rescued by a nice lady who just happens to be a K9 trainer. And out of the goodness of her heart, this lucky boy received several weeks of training so he would be ready for his forever family! His training continues with his foster family. He is a fast learner and wants to please. Mack is crate and leash trained, and knows the meaning of sit very well. Mack, a lab mix weighs 56lbs and our veterinarian estimates him to be of 1 1/2 to 2 years old. He will do well with an active family due to his energy level and with older children due to his size. He gets along well with other dogs, loves belly rubs, and riding in the car. Has a nose for tracking, deer, racoon, possum, squirrel, cats and anything else that shows up in the back yard. Mack has been neutered, up to date on vaccinations and is being treated for heartworms. His HW treatment should be complete around January 20th. To submit an application for Mack, go to www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org Adopt Me page and scroll to the bottom.

Maddie

Mighty Little Miss!

Introducing Mighty Maddie! We call her “Mighty” for several reasons: 1) because she was found in the median of a four-lane highway and survived! We don’t know how she got there but she popped her head up from the bushes at just the right time to be seen by one of DRDR’s co-founders. She was understandably scared but submitted when she knew she was going to be safe. 2) Maddie is short, compact and strong, but there is a sweetheart dying to get out and be loved. We think Maddie is a Boston Terrier/Pitbull mix. She is crate trained and is doing good with her leash walking. She LOVES to run in large circles in her foster families’ backyard. Maddie likes to chase her tail and she snores! When Maddie meets other dogs, she can be hesitant at first and gives a little growl, but she is testing the waters so to say. Maddie would do well with some obedience training as she really wants to please – she’s just not sure how. Her foster family is working on socialization and knows she will master it soon. Maddie is about one year old, 30lbs, spayed, up to date on vaccinations & microchipped. Maddie would do well with an active family with older children. She has not been tested with cats. Maddie has very unique markings. She is mostly white with black ears, black circles around her eyes, and some black on her tail. She does not shed much if at all. She loves to walk and hike. She is quick so would probably like to run with her forever family too!

Miss Daisy

Loyal Lady!

Meet Miss Daisy! This girl has certainly had rough life, but you would never know it when you meet her. She is the sweetest, most loving, cutest attention seeking pupper ever. Miss Daisy’s backstory will make you cry. She was given to total stranger in a Wal-mart parking lot. Yes, she was a Wal-mart free puppy. Once at her new home, she was immediately put on a chain and left outside. The kids and grandkids played with her when they were around but she mostly laid by a tree. She had a dog house for a while until a tree limb fell on it. Daisy was not spayed or given any monthly preventatives for fleas or parasites. She had two litters of puppies with only 5 or 6 surviving. The first litter drowned in a rain storm. But Daisy’s luck was about to change. One of the grandson’s met a DRDR co-founder and told her about Miss Daisy who was pregnant with her third litter. A wonderful foster family stepped up and a week after Miss Daisy was brought into the rescue, she delivered 10 healthy puppies. The puppies are finding their forever homes but Miss Daisy has a bit longer road to travel before going to her forever home. She is heartworm positive but has begun treatment and doing well. She doesn’t understand why she is in a crate 24/7 except for potty breaks. She wants to be running and playing in her foster family’s backyard or cuddling on the sofa. Miss Daisy is a 2-3 year old 50-60lb hound mix who should be available for adoption around the beginning of April.  She gets along with cats, other dogs but would like to be the center of attention, and LOVES children. She will be spayed and microchipped after she has completed her heartworm treatment. Adoption application can be submitted online at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org Adopt Me page and scroll to the bottom.

Pebbles

Loves Cuddles!

Hi! I'm Pebbles. I'm a young mom (approx 2 years old), who loves my children dearly! But, once they leave the nest, I'm done with motherhood! Whew!
You see, I've never been the center of attention. I was born into a very busy place & although I was loved, they couldn't spend time with me alone. I have always craved human affection so much that I just want to crawl into your lap, give you kisses & flop over for a belly rub. 


I know I'm covered in scars. Even my tongue is damaged. But, my foster mom says I'm beautiful & loves me so much! I'm not interested in making any trouble. When another dog in the household approached me, I just flopped over on my side to let her know I mean no harm. I'm a survivor & just long to be cherished.


Do you have room in your heart for a girl with a rough & tough exterior, but a heart of gold on the inside? If you let me sleep with you, I promise to let you have half the bed…most nights.


Pebbles & her puppies were rescued from a hoarding case with 50+ dogs on one property. The owner did her best in caring for the dogs but was not financially able to spay/neuter and ultimately got overwhelmed. Needless to say, there were many pregnant momma dogs as well as moms with young puppies one of which is Pebbles & her three pups: Daniel, Rupert, and Emma.


Pebbles is ready to find her forever family...could it be you? She deserves the best life has to offer. 

Red

Finally livin' the good life!!

Meet Red!! Red has had a terrible life thus far. This is the first winter he won't spend freezing outside on a chain or with an abusive owner who liked to kick and beat him with a stick. You would think Red would be fearful of all humans but that's not the case. He loves everyone he meets: humans large and small, dogs, but has not been tested with cats.  Red is in a loving foster home and has a new gal pal in Lena. Life is good for Red but he has one more hurdle to overcome before he can go to his forever home. He is heartworm positive. He will be starting his treatment very soon and should be available for adoption around the end of April. Red has been neutered, is up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Red has a little gray on his muzzle but who wouldn’t after the life he’s had. We think Red is about 6-8 years old and may be a lab/boxer mix. He is a tall boy who is weighing in around 70lbs now that he’s getting good nutrition. No ribs showing on this boy anymore. We can't wait to see Red in his happily after after furever home- he only deserves the very best! If you think you can give Red a great home, please submit an application at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org Adopt me page and scroll to the bottom.  Roses are Red after all!!

Rupert

Adorable little ginger!

Pebbles puppies were rescued with their mom from a hoarding case with 50+ dogs on one property. The owner did her best in caring for the dogs but was not financially able to spay/neuter and ultimately got overwhelmed. Needless to say, there were many pregnant momma dogs as well as moms with young puppies one of which is Pebbles & her three pups: Daniel, Rupert, and Emma.

 The puppies were born around the end of February, have had their first puppy shots, and have been wormed:

Hi! I'm Rupert, named after Rupert Grint, from Harry Potter. I have the most glorious ginger coat & hazel eyes. I know I look sad, but that's just my Sharpei heritage. I'm actually a pretty content little guy. I spend my days nursing, playing with my sister & brother & sleeping. I love when the humans hold me because they kiss me a lot & make the best snuggle buddies. I just can't wait for all the cuddles that I'm going to have one day! When my perfect human comes along!

Rosie

Sweetest girl, Athletic
&
High Energy

​​

Rosie was dumped on the side of a rural road. She was terrified and didn't leave the area for days, but luckily, she had a guardian angel looking out for her. This angel found Rosie and sponsored her vetting costs which allowed DRDR to bring her in and get this gorgeous girl healthy! When Rosie came into DRDR’s care, she was malnourished, her coat was dull with hair falling out and had horrible skin. At that time, we had no idea how beautiful she would ultimately be. Her light brindle coat is very unique. Rosie loves attention and is crazy for her Kong. She will play fetch for hours if you let her! No doubt this girl had a rough life but we know her luck will change once the perfect forever family finds her. Rosie is approximately 3 years old, has been spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Rosie plays with her foster family’s male pit mix, but would need to be tested with other females; however the foster family has seen no aggression towards other dogs or cats. Rosie is a high-energy girl. For adoption information, please go to: http://www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org/adopt-me-adoption-application

Spice

Spice is the only tri-colored – black, tan and white – and is a cutie patootie! Autumn came to Dirt Road Doggies Rescue pregnant so we don’t who the daddy dog is. Spice will have her third puppy booster on January 15th and will be ready for her forever home. According to Spice’s foster mom, she is the adventurous type and she’s believes Spice will make a great companion for a hiking and exploring family.

Stormy

Happy girl!

​​
Stormy and siblings Misty and Caine (three Musketeers) have got to be the happiest puppies we’ve ever met which is surprising because they were born to a dog who’s spent her entire life on a heavy chain. There is a padlock that attaches her collar to the chain so no one will steal her. She is not spayed so continues to have litter after litter of puppies. These puppies were the lucky ones from the litter. Two died shortly after birth and another was hit by a car. On the bright side, the three Musketeers have been well socialized with humans and dogs – they understand the pecking order and don’t mind being on the bottom! Even though mom was on a chain, she is cared for. These puppies were very much loved and we commend the family for surrendering them to DRDR so forever families can be found. Stormy, like Caine & Misty is a happy pup who loves attention from humans and enjoys running and playing with their foster siblings. Stormy was born in April 2018 and currently weighs 35lbs. She’s had all age appropriate vaccines, has been spayed and microchipped. She loves being an inside dog and is crate & house trained. She loves walking the neighborhood with her foster mom. Stormy has dark eyes with a gorgeous black & white coat.  She is great with children, other dogs, but has not been tested with cats. Storm's momma is a beautiful short legged Pittie who is a total sweetheart so we know where she gets her amazing disposition. There will be a happy ending for momma dog too. Off the Chain, a local charity, is building mom & three other dogs on the property their very own pens!!  No more heavy chains!

Sugar

Ah sugar,
ah honey honey!

​​
Sugar and her two eight-week-old babies were found running in the middle of a busy street and came very close to being hit by several cars. A Good Samaritan was able to get them out of harms way and to DRDR for her second chance at a good life. Sugar is a 1-2-year-old Feist mix who weighs approximately 30 lbs. She’s UpToDate on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. Sugar is such a good little momma – she never lets her pups out of her sight and loves playing with them and especially rolling on the ground with them. She has taught them to follow her outside to go potty but can be protective if other dogs get near them. When not playing with her littles, this sweetheart loves to give her humans kisses. She is crate trained and working on house training – she has not had an accident in her foster family’s home. Sugar loves walking on her leash and will do great in an active family. She loves children and other dogs, but has not been tested with cats.
Could you be Sugar’s Happily Ever After?

Winston


The Survivor

Meet Winston, the survivor! He is a Lab mix, 2 yrs old, with all shots, altered and about 50lbs. This handsome boy showed up in a neighborhood one day and never left. He found a front porch on which to sleep and stay out of the elements and was even given an old blanket to rest his head. No one ever claimed him so he roamed the neighborhood begging for food until a very kind and compassionate woman made it her mission to find him a safe place to go until a forever home could be found. When he first came to DRDR, he would not tolerate a collar. No way was he walking on a leash. He was friendly but a little weary of humans but never aggressive. Knowing this makes his professional photos all the more impressive! He walked on a leash, rode an elevator, and really enjoyed his photo shoot! 👍 👍 🐾Winston has completed his heartworm treatment and his ready for his forever family! He is very energetic and loves to play with toys. He is not suitable with small children as he may accidentally knock them over or scratch when he is playing. He has not been tested with cats but does focus on them when they walk by If you think you’re Winston’s perfect match, please submit an application on the Adoption page at:  www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org.

This first photo was taken of Jack about a month after he entered the protective arms of DRDR.  He was still very much underweight and slowly recovering from a severe flea infestation.  You can see the look of relief in his eyes, so grateful not to be hungry anymore.  The second photo was taken just two months later.  Jack so handsome and filled out.  He has come a long way in such a short amount of time.
