Meet Xanadu

Xanadu is now in a wonderful foster home and learning not to be afraid. She came in from an insecure life so is scared of many things, including hands / arm movements above her body. She is more tolerant of petting and lifting (when needed) from underneath.

With a guesstimated birthday in Sept. 2019, Xanadu weighs about 45 lb. She needs to gain weight, but putting pounds on a husky is typically a challenge.

Xanadu is house-trained when kept on a regular schedule. She is leash-savvy, but will pull (forward) when excited and backward when scared. She can panic and when this happens, will fling herself around so a secure collar / harness are critical when walking her. She has developed confidence in her foster, but will need to learn trust with her new family.

Xanadu is an affectionate girl. She would prefer to be an only dog, but enjoys playing with polite dogs. When a pup isn't raised in a safe environment, they have difficulty judging when another dog is trustworthy. Over time Xanadu will understand that her handler won't introduce her into an unsafe situation, but her new family will need to be patient while she learns.

As an active girl, Xanadu enjoys playing and running. Going for adventures and explores feature high on the bucket list for her dream home :)

April 2020: We are not holding public adoption events until further notice. Qualified families are being invited to appointments to meet specific dogs. There are currently no opportunities to view multiple dogs and adoption events aren't being held at Tractor Supply in Lenoir.

Whether dogs / puppies come in as strays or owner surrenders, we usually have to make our best guess as to birthdate and breed.

If adopted into a home with other animals, particularly cats, your new pet should be crated or secured when you're not available to supervise to insure a harmonious relationship.

A vet reference is required to confirm responsible pet ownership. Requirement is a minimum three year vet history documenting current / previous pets are spayed / neutered, kept up to date on core vaccinations, and on heartworm prevention. We suggest first time pet owners without a vet history look for an adult dog for companionship and to gain experience. Other rescues or your local government-run animal control agency may have different adoption requirements.

Adoption fee covers two vaccinations plus spay / neuter if using our local low-cost spay/neuter clinic (overnight stay required) and surgery occurs as agreed upon in the adoption contract. Convenience fee equal to refundable spay/neuter deposit may be required if, using our veterinarian or same-day surgery, service is scheduled through our organization. Additional fees for 3rd puppy vaccination, refundable spay/neuter deposit, etc. may apply.

We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue. We receive no funding from agencies. Available animals can be seen most Saturdays at Tractor Supply in Lenoir from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We recommend interested parties contact us to pre-qualify for adoption so their new furry family can go home once paperwork is complete. Fees are required in cash. For more information on our organization, our website is
