Mikey is a handsome 3 year old, 50lb male Black Mouth Cur mix. He was part of a cruelty situation in TN, and our partner rescue group followed him for 6 months reporting his owners for cruelty. He has scarring around his neck from an embedded collar. His back left foot and part of his leg are gone either by some kind of attack he experienced while chained in the yard or because he was caught in his chain and freed himself.  His leg was left to heal on its own, which had to be very painful.  The good news is that the skin on his “stump” is completely healed and he is not in pain now.  His new owner should be cautious about keeping his scarring healthy and avoiding potential scrapes.  He is up to date on vaccines and neutered.    Mikey has come so far and is ready to look for his furever home.  His fosters have had Mikey since March 2021.  Since then he has become healthy and heartworm free, house-trained and crate trained. Mikey has mastered using his prosthetic- a very special “Chevy Harness prosthetic from Ortho Pets in Colorado.  Because Mikey is missing a significant portion of his back leg, this unique appliance goes over his back to keep it secure.  Mikey can walk, run, jump, go up and down steps, and do all the things his four-legged friends can do.    Mikey would be perfect for someone looking for a special dog with special needs and a special heart.  He will need experienced, patient owners ( Kid's 16+.) and a slow transition.  When meeting new people, Mikey needs a hands-off, neutral approach so he can sniff and trust at his own pace.  Once he knows you, you are his buddy.     Mikey has graduated basic training with Sit Means Sit.  This training involves a transponder and stim collar and includes two years of follow up class,  which will transfer to his new home.  Mikey knows sit, stay, and leave it.  He loves car rides and going for walks.  He walks nicely on leash.    Mikey currently lives with a large dog, a small dog, and two cats. He likes to play with other dogs and shares his toys nicely.  He gets along great with all his housemates.   * Mikey needs to be separated when pet meals are prepared- he went a long time having to fight for his food, and although he can sit, stay, and wait, this situation is stressful for him.  We have had great success with using a gate or door, and separating Mikey during meal prep and while he is eating.  Mikey loves peanut butter.  He looks forward to his favorite food each time his prosthetic is attached or removed.

Meet Quince:  Quince and his 3 siblings were rescued by Charlies Crusaders when they were given away free in a Walmart parking lot. Quince was born right around Christmas 2021.  Quince is a lean and lanky 45 lbs and is neutered.  He would do best in a home with older children or adults only that can give him lots of exercise and mental stimulation.  Although he is a very energenic boy, a home that is more laid back and predictible would suit him best. Quince gets along wtih other dogs when introduced and loves to share his toys with them under supervision. He does have some resource guarding with food.  If your knowledgeable with dogs, you understand that not all dogs in a household can eat at the same time and this can be easily worked out by removing the other dog(s) in home during feeding time or being diligent and being in the same room at feeding time. Quince is in a boarding facility and works with a trainer.  Quince does requires a home with a fenced yard so that he can romp around freely.  He is potty trained, crate trained, and knows sit, stay, and down. Quince loves the outdoors including hiking, playing in water and car rides.  If you are interested in adopting this sweet boy please go to our website at charliescrusaders.org and fill out our adoption application.  show less
