         Animals adopted must have a fenced yard and access to a house in a safe and loving environment.    References and a home visit are needed to approve an adoption.    All adoptions require a pre-adoption week-long visit at the new home to make sure the animal and family are compatible.    Animals adopted 6 months and older are fixed prior to adoption.    All animals adopted are dewormed and up to date on all necessary vaccines.    Dogs are also up-to-date on heartworm preventative.    They may be heartworm positive, if on the slow-kill cure procedure for heartworms using ivermectin and doxycycline, provided we feel confident that the new owners will continue the procedure.    Otherwise, they will have been treated to kill the heartworms with the conventional "arsenic-based" drug imiticide.    A tax-deductable donation of $150 is asked at the time of adoption.

41 Teddy

black Labrador Retriever

Input Date
Teddy came from Gilmer Animal Control in Ellijay, GA as a 1-2 year old adult male dog. He was picked up near death from a dog fight (bait dog?) and taken to Copperhill Clinic in McCaysville where LDR adopted him two weeks later. Teddy is now a handsome dog with long black hair that covers the scars from his fight. He has fully recovered and is so sweet and affectionate with his foster Mom Cindy Mulkey. He looks like a miniature Newfoundland. Teddy is fully vetted b and weights less than 50 lbs. He tested a light hw positive and is currently on the slow-kill procedure of ivermectin and doxycycline. You couldn't find a better companion dog than Teddy. He is like velcro on Cindy. Please contact her at 828-557-4263 if you are interested in adopting him.
44 Chloe

Pit Bull

Input Date
Chloe is a beautiful 1 to 2 year old reddish-brown pit bull, full of energy and sweet as can be. LDR took her from the VRHS Shelter in Marble, NC. Chloe is fully vetted, in perfect health, house-trained and uses a doggy door. She is about 50 lbs and loves to play with other dogs and sleep on the bed. At night she will sleep in your arms.

48 Deja Vu

Plott Hound

Input Date
Deja Vu is an absolutely gorgeous male, chocolate brindel, year and a half old, Plott Hound. He is tall and lanky, weighing 55 to 60 pounds. Deja was reported several times on FBas a stray wandering on the Martin's Creek and Caney Creek areas of Murphy, NC before Ron Stoessell found him on his driveway off Crisp Rd and took him into Lost Dogs Run. Deja is now neutered, fully vetted, heartworm negative, housebroken, very friendly and well socialized. An adopter needs to have a 5 ft fenced yard for him to be safe in and to have access to the house for sleeping, and to not be used for hunting. If interested, please contct Ron Stoessell at 985-630-1613 or at
56 Sugar

Kimmer Cur mix

Input Date
Sugar looks like a white 45 lb Kimmer Cur & possible Am. Bulldog mix, very shy and sweet, about 3 years old. She was found in Wildcat Subdivision in Murphy, NC in late July and brought to nearby Lost Dogs Run, so weak from starvation, that she could hardly move. Sugar recovered rapidly and now is a very quiet and calm dog who just likes to hang around, following her foster mom. She was obviously used as a breeding dog in the past. She is now totally vetted, house trained, and heart worm negative. However, in mid August she had three 2 minute seizures within 24 hours and was put on levetiracetam (3 500 mg tablet a day. This has ended her seizures and the medicine is not expensive. Her low energy nature would make her a great pet for a retired couple. She is just so sweet and wants to stay near home. Each morning, she is let out to explore in the neighboring woods and is back within a half hour, eager to go back in the house. Call Ron Stoessell (985-630-1613) or email him at if you can provide a great home for her.
63 Morgan

Siberian Husky

Input Date
Morgan was a stray from Morganton, NC. He is a very handsome black and silver husky, about 45 lbs and was probably 9 yer old at input. He has one blue eye and one brown eye and is deaf. His deafness makes him a special needs dog that will require a fenced yard for his safety. He is both gentle and skittish, likes to play with other dogs. Morgan is fully vetted and uses a doggy door. This is a great pet, just very shy. If you are interested in bringing Morgan into your home, please contact Ron Stoessell at 985-630-1613 or email him at
65 Pancho

Black and Tan Coonhound

Input Date
Pancho is a handsome, young, black and tan coonhound, probably two years old. He was a stray from Blue Ridge Ga and rescued from the local Shelter. He is extremely sweet and affectionate and likes to sleep in your arms. He has no problems with other dogs but has not been checked out with cats. Pancho came already neutered and is being checked for an old eye injury affecting his right eye. He is probably blind in that eye but may have a little sight in it. If adopted, he would require a fenced yard. For more information, please contact Ron Stoessell at
66 Tucker

Pit Bull

Input Date
Tucker is probably 5 years old, a handsome, 100 lb, neutered male pit bull. He came from Brother Wolf Rescue in Asheville, NC. Tucker is mostly dark gray with white on his chest, face, head, and paws, basically a blue pit but with droopy ears, perhaps some American Bulldog in him. He is sweet and affectionate and not aggressive within a pack of 8 dogs, ignoring barking dogs. He was attacked once by the dominant alpha dog, a large Plot Hound and he did not respond other than to defend himself. Tucker is not that active, staying mostly within a cabin and using doggy doors to go outside to do his business and/or play with other dogs. He is fully house trained and would be a great pet for a single woman for protection and friendship. Please contact Ron Stoessell at 985-630-1613 or if interested in adopting. The application is at
