Meet Zeke

Zeke and sister, Zoe, were brought to the rescuer's home by their stray mama. She won't allow herself to be caught, but the littles learned from their rescuer that people are good for food and loving.

With a guesstimated birthday of May 1, 2022, Zeke weighed about 50 lb in Nov. 2022.

Zeke is doing well with house-training. Like all youngsters, he might want to chew unauthorized items. He is supervised by his fosters and they haven't noticed him trying to chew furniture.

Although he is leash-savvy, Zeke can panic easily at unexpected sounds and movements. He's getting big, so can pull an unprepared handler off their feet (he's done that to his foster mom twice - she pays much more attention now when walking him).

Zeke is used to being crated at night and is comfy in a 42" crate. He sleeps on a crate mat and doesn't tear it up, but will tear up stuffed toys. He'll load into a van, but is nervous when riding. Tethering is recommended for now as he might bolt out of the car when the door is opened.


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. 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.

Not all foster dogs are available for viewing during public events at Tractor Supply (360 Blowing Rock Blvd) in Lenoir, NC. 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
