Puddin Pop

2 year old, 45 lb. female
Mixed Breed

Puddin Pop is a spunky little charmer with a zest for life that’s as irresistible as her name!

Puddin Pop always has a spring in her step. She’s got the energy for a game of tug and loves to play chase with other pups but when indoors, she settles very nicely. She rarely makes a peep and doesn’t have accidents in her crate.

Puddin Pop adores her walks and can even make a rainy day fun – she’ll splash in every puddle she sees. Anyone looking for a water dog?!

Puddin is enthusiastic about fun obedience training and is a quick learner! Puddin Pop knows how to sit and is learning how to lay down. She can sometimes become mouthy when playing but we have seen a huge improvement with that behavior.

Puddin Pop can be shy and uncertain when meeting some men but warms up fairly quickly with some patience. We have male volunteers at the shelter that she has not had a problem with at all.

Cole

4-year-old, 66 lb. male
Mixed Breed

Cole is looking for his next new best pal! He has a fun energy level and seems to feed off of whatever the human he is with wants to do. Want to play? He will play. Want to bring him in? He will go right inside. Want to cuddle? He will plop right in your lap for all the lovin’ he can soak in!

Cole would make a great companion for someone looking for a copilot for all their adventures but wanting a snuggle buddy at night.

We assume this boy is house-trained as we’ve never had to clean up after him and he also does very well in a crate! Even though he has the biggest, goofiest personality, Cole is quiet all day unless he can hear that his favorite dog walker is at the shelter!

Cole loves every human that he meets but would be a little too much energy for small kiddos. He can be jumpy when he’s excited to see his people.

Other Dogs

Cole is dog selective - he has successfully been on walks with other dogs after a slow introduction.

Jimmy Buffet

8 year old, 100 lb. male 
Jimmy is VERY overweight!
He will weigh less than 100 lb.
Mixed Breed

Jimmy is a happy, laid-back buddy. He’s generally easy-going but still enjoys playing with a dog friend and chasing after a tennis ball.

Jimmy is very overweight so he is on the hunt for a fitness partner! He will need a person or family who will keep him active this summer to help him shed some pounds!

Jimmy recently attended an adoption event and handled all of the excitement like a pro, enjoying meeting everyone. He’s sweet with people, house-trained, and crate-trained.

Other Dogs

Dog social - Jimmy has a dog BFF at the shelter right now. He is very overweight so can't move very fast but he does the best he can! He enjoys playing or just coexisting with the other dog when he gets tired. Before Jimmy was transported to Massachusetts, he was in foster care with another dog and a cat.

Cats

Jimmy was in foster care with a cat. We've also tested him once at our shelter and he did well.
We don't currently have cats that are ideal for testing (they are all afraid of dogs at the moment and keep their distance). We walked Jimmy into the cat room and he was able to observe them from a distance. He was indifferent, a little anxious, and ready to leave the room.

Sully

1 and a half years old, 45 lb. male
Terrier Mix

Sully is a tennis ball-chasing, affection-loving pup. He’s an energetic, young guy so he’d love a running partner or someone wanting to bring him on fun adventures this summer!

Sully is a super smart boy…sometimes too smart for his own good 😂 He gets bored easily if he’s not mentally stimulated which gets him into trouble (mouthy & jumpy behavior). An adopter who is up for keeping both his body and mind active would be perfect for him. He will need training to address his manners. He is already making improvements here at the shelter!

Sully’s favorite activities are going on long walks at the park, splashing in the water at the beach, playing tug or fetch, and sunbathing (extra bonus if a belly rub is involved).

Parker

5 year old, 63 lb. male
Terrier Mix

Parker is a goofy boy who will greet you with a full-body wiggle! He will most definitely show you his belly and invite you to play. 

The shelter setting was becoming too stressful for Parker and he started to display reactivity toward other dogs. His foster parents are working hard to help him become the best version of himself! He will need a forever family who will do the same ❤️

Parker has adapted wonderfully to home life and daily routine. He is incredibly affectionate and enjoys cuddling. He also loves outdoor activities like playing fetch, tug, or going for long walks. Parker is well-behaved when left home alone and sleeps through the night. 

Other Dogs

He has successfully played with others, but right now Parker needs a quiet break from other canines. Parker's foster parents are working daily on loose leash walking and managing his reactivity, in addition to having regular sessions with a professional trainer.

Cats

Unknown - he can be tested

Bo

2 year old, 55 lb. male
Pittie/Terrier Mix

Bo finds playful moments & snuggly moments equally important! He loves to romp after a tennis ball in the yard and have fun with both people & dogs, but he also knows how to take advantage of some downtime by just chillin’ with his people in the yard.

Bo is food-motivated, loves to make his people happy, and is ready to learn new things with his forever family. He’s a smart boy who catches on to new commands quickly.

Bo is house-trained but crate time can be stressful for him. He gets anxious when left alone in the crate for too long so he will need a patient, kind family who will give Bo time to adjust to a new schedule.

We adore Bo and know that you will too!

Other Dogs

Dog social - he has a dog pal at the shelter right now. He likes to play chase and wrestle!

Wren

3 year old, 33 lb. female
She is very underweight so will weigh more!
Hound Mix

Wren is an adventure-seeking, cuddle-loving pup.

Wren has blossomed from a stressed-out shelter pup to a confident, happy companion thanks to her foster mom. When Wren was at the shelter, she wasn’t interested in staying outdoors for too long and was really struggling with house training. Now she’s practically a pro at both. She lives for outdoor adventure (hiking with her canine foster brother at her side!), walks well on a leash, and rarely has accidents in the home anymore.

Wren is a quick learner and already knows a few commands. She’s still mastering some house manners like resisting the temptation to counter-surf or rummage through the trash with her hound nose but she’s making strides!

If you’re looking for a copilot for all of your outdoor adventures this summer and a pup who will be happy to lounge and cuddle when you get home, Wren just might be your girl.

Other Dogs

Wren is dog social and is currently being fostered in a home with another dog. She loves to play, especially if the other dog is up for wrestling. She gets along really well with her foster brother as long as food is not involved. She guards her food and this is something her foster mom is working on with her. Other than food, she shares her space well for example she doesn't mind sharing a dog bed with him. She also does super well coexisting with other dogs on walks.

Sawyer

7 year old, 94 lb. male
He is overweight so will weigh less
Lab Mix

Sawyer is a large Labrador retriever mix that loves people and warms up very quickly. Our volunteers say he seeks cuddles when in the play yard and does the doggy lean into them whenever he can. 

When Sawyer’s original owner lost their housing, another family took him in temporarily. He was then surrendered to a shelter in SC when his new family felt they couldn’t provide the exercise that a fun, goofy guy like Sawyer needs. He is overweight so he will really benefit from daily exercise & playtime.

We suspect that Sawyer hasn’t spent much time exploring new places. He likely spent the majority of his life sheltered in a home and his own backyard. Sawyer would like a forever family that will show him new places and work on loose leash walking! When in new places, Sawyer needs guidance from a kind, confident person to show him the way and help him process the new environment full of new smells, sounds and sights!

This gentleman is crate and house-trained.

Other Dogs

The family who had Sawyer stated that he is docile with other dogs despite his size.

Teddy

6 year old, 53 lb. male
Mixed Breed

Other Dogs

Teddy enjoys going on walks with other dogs and is non-reactive toward others when they pass by. He is totally comfortable with smelling the same spots as other dogs and walking right along side them, but when off leash with other dogs he becomes insecure if they interact with him too closely. His tail tucks and he will correct them to let them know he needs space. With positive interactions set at Teddy's pace, he has the potential to become more comfortable with other pups directly interacting with him.

Cats

We have cat tested Teddy once with the cats at our shelter. He was afraid of them! One cat hissed at him and he immediately backed away. He didn't show any interest in approaching any of them. Teddy could likely live with cats if they give him space to get used to the idea!

Rex

1 year old, 50 lb. male
Retriever Mix

Rex is a young goofball who’s ready to meet you! He’s a social butterfly who’s always happy to greet new people, especially if you’re ready to give him some scratches & pets plus participate in a play session.

Rex enjoys romping around our play yard and would love a forever family that will keep him active this summer!

He’s still puppy-like so will need some manners training. He’s already mastered “sit” and seems pretty food-motivated and eager to learn more!

Rex is well-behaved in his crate and rarely barks.

Other Dogs

Dog social - Rex has a dog friend at the shelter right now. When he met her for the first time, he liked her instantly and wanted to play right away! He likes to play rough & wrestle but with some guidance from the humans, he's able to dial the ruff play down. He is non-reactive when other pups pass by his kennel.

Layla

7-month-old, 35 lb. female
Mixed Breed
Layla is still growing!

Meet Layla, the vibrant and spirited pup! Layla is still in her puppy phase, eagerly exploring the world and growing each day.

This girl is anything but shy—she’s bold, confident, and ready to make friends wherever she goes.

Layla’s favorite activities are running around the play yard with a human, giving kisses, stealing toys from her siblings, and swimming!

Please keep in mind that Layla is still a young dog. Training is essential to help her grow into a well-behaved and happy member of your family.

Sometimes when we showcase adoptable dogs whose siblings are also at the shelter, prospective adopters hesitate to apply out of concern for separating the pups. Please understand that we do NOT place littermates into the same homes. Don’t be afraid to apply for one!

Other Dogs

Dog social - Layla plays with her two sisters. She loves to play chase and wrestle. She is the rough player in the group. Socialization will be important for Layla as she continues to grow.

Lily

7-month-old, 40 lb. female
Mixed Breed
Lily is still growing!

If you’re looking for a pup who’s equal parts playful and affectionate, Lily is your girl. With her puppy energy, she’s always up for a romp around the play yard but don’t let her playful side fool you…she knows the importance of taking a break to bask in the sunshine and get a belly rub from the volunteers.

Please keep in mind that Lily is still a young dog. Training is essential to help her grow into a well-behaved and happy member of your family.

Sometimes when we showcase adoptable dogs whose siblings are also at the shelter, prospective adopters hesitate to apply out of concern for separating the pups. Please understand that we do NOT place littermates into the same homes. Don’t be afraid to apply for one!

Other Dogs

Dog social - Lily plays with her two sisters at the shelter. She seems to play however the other dog wants to play. She's up for a game of chase or light wrestling. Socialization will be important for Lily as she continues to grow.

Bambi

 2 year old, 39 lb. female
She is underweight – she will weigh more!
Hound Mix

Bambi is goofy, silly, hilarious…basically, any word that means she’ll keep you laughing!

She’s an outgoing, sweet pup with the volunteers. She may need to work on her manners (she jumps up to say hello) but she is food-motivated and eager to make people happy so she should learn quickly with some consistency in her forever home!

This girl’s tail is always wagging. She is generally quiet in her crate unless she is feeling playful…then, she’ll “talk” to us, roll around in her crate, and show us her belly.

Bambi would love a forever family that will take her on fun adventures but one that also prioritizes some snuggle time. She will need to work on her house training.

Other Dogs

Dog social - she plays with another pup at our shelter. She loves to romp with others and doesn't mind some rough wrestling either.

Cats

Bambi was tested once with cats at our shelter. She was slightly playful but didn't display any concerning behaviors. She could live with cats who are okay with playful dogs.

Zoe

4 year old, 45 lb. female
Mixed Breed

Zoe is a beautiful, sweet girl who is house trained and crate trained. She is super athletic, agile & smart! She loves to be outside playing fetch or going on long walks but settles nicely inside for down time and cuddling.

She is incredibly devoted & loyal to her people. When she sees someone that she loves, her little nub tail doesn’t stop wagging and all she wants to do is for you to say hi to her and welcome her into your lap. Once you have her trust, there is no turning back! She is loyal and will always greet you with a smile on her face.

Zoe was insecure about meeting new people when she first arrived at Lighthouse. She has gotten much more confident with strangers but her forever family should still be considerate and aware of her feelings when she meets someone new.

Training

Zoe has been to professional training so she knows commands such as sit, down, stay, come and also knows some fun ones like how to give a high five. She's a happy girl when she gets to show off her tricks & quickly learns new ones.

Other Dogs

Zoe has made a lot of dog friends at Lighthouse (loves to play chase!) but it's all on her own terms - she appreciates a slow intro and she will let the other dogs know that she is the queen so she plays best with dogs who accept corrections.

Cats

Zoe has lived with a cat before but she does chase. If she were to live with a cat, they would need to be very dog-savvy.
