There is a need to help our furry friends find loving homes in Charlotte and surrounding areas. MRL is looking for partners to support this mission. Our goal is to introduce the dogs that need homes to our listeners and direct them to our rescue partner.
After the kick-off date on National Puppy Day, we will continue the mission through November and dedicate one day per month, (the 3rd Monday of the Month) to host the puppies in the studio. You may be wondering how will our listeners SEE the puppies through the radio? Thank goodness for the digital age, we will set up puppy cams in the studio that our listeners can see on socials and our website. MRL is truly dedicated to saving our community dogs’ lives by executing this program and creating the awareness that this issue needs so desperately! Check out our eight available pups below.
MRL Rescue Mission Pups!
Jay needs an owner who can match his energy. He needs a stable situation and training. Otherwise, he is a very sweet dog with good skills. Very high energy. No Kids under 12. Well-structured household with lots of opportunities for training and exercise. Name: Jay ID: A1168626 Age: 4 years Weight: 66 lbs Sex: Neutered Date of Arrival: 7/6/2020 Adoption fee: $40 Vaccinations: Has all required vaccinations. Has been microchipped
Name: Sammie ID: A1170806 Age: 2 years Weight: 40 lbs Sex: Neutered Date of Arrival: 8/10/2020 Adoption fee: $10 Vaccinations: Has all required vaccinations Has been microchipped Didn't mind cat in home Good with people Good with potty training, door dashed to go urinate outside Some car sickness Leash trained Cowers at doors No barking/reactivity at dogs Mild mannered couch potato gives kisses energetic exited loving plays with toys
Name: Vera ID: A1170896 Age: 7 years Weight: 46 lbs Sex: Spayed Date of Arrival: 8/11/2020 Adoption fee: $10 Vaccinations: Has all required vaccinations Has been microchipped Vera is an exceptionally well-behaved lady with no behavior problems that I have seen. She is completely trustworthy left loose in the house when I'm gone. She is house-trained for bathroom, even going to the extent of finding me and vocalizing when she wants to go out. She does not bolt through doors and politely waits at the door when I ask her to. She is crate trained; and although she willingly goes in the crate on her own to sleep, she prefers not to be locked in. If it's necessary, she does settle down after a short period of whining. While she is by no means a lap dog, she does seem to prefer being near people, lying by my chair when I'm working at my desk or lying on the bed while I'm watching TV. She does not lick faces - a very good habit to my mind. While she is accepting of - and even friendly towards - other dogs, she is not interested at this time in playing with them. I think that's because she doesn't feel all that well yet from being so underweight. She does growl to protect her food bowl but stops once corrected. I feel once she gets some weight back on and loses any food scarcity anxiety she may have, this habit will likely disappear. She likes to chase and play with a tennis ball, but she doesn't bring it back yet so playing fetch outside will be problematic until she learns to return. I think she might be excellent with children because she is so calm and gentle, but she would need to be protected from the mishandling a very small child is prone to.
Name: Lou ID: A1170409 Age: 1 year Weight: 55 lbs Sex: Neutered Date of Arrival: 8/10/2020 Adoption fee: $10 Vaccinations: Has all required vaccinations Has been microchipped Lou is a young and loving pup who just needs a chance to show you how great he is! He came in as a stray so we do not know much about his history but here's what we do know: Lou appears to enjoy the company of other dogs. His play style is still a little puppyish but he's learning. He also seems to be fine with cats. He isn't sure about getting in the car but once inside he lays down for the ride. He walks next to you on leash and wants to be right by your side. He enjoys treats but isn't super food motivated. He has not shown any resource guarding towards treats or toys. He does have a bladder issue that will need further vetting/care. Lou can come off a little fearful in the kennels but opens up more once outside/in a home!
Name: Kody ID: A1169947 Age: 1 year Weight: 53 lbs Sex: Neutered Date of Arrival: 7/17/2020 Adoption fee: $10 Vaccinations: Has all required vaccinations Has been microchipped He is a highly energetic dog who will need lots to do is, including walks (a fenced yard would be helpful). He needs toys, training and patience. He also needs toys to chew on. Unknown about dogs/cats/kids/house training.

Name: Jelly Bean ID: A1170554 Age: 1 year Weight: 48 lbs Sex: Neutered Date of Arrival: 8/20/2020 Adoption fee: $40 Vaccinations: Has all required vaccinations Has been microchipped Jelly Bean is a fun, energetic boy looking for his forever home! At just 1 year old, he is very active and still has some manners to learn to help him become the best dog he can be! Jellybean is smart and treat motivated though which will help with training and teaching him doggy manners. Jellybean can be a bit exuberant at the start of his walks but does well with a harness and settles down within a few minutes. We feel like Jelly Bean would do best in a home without small children due to his energy level and since he can be mouthy when excited. He has learned the "sit" command quickly because he is very treat motivated. He looks to his human for guidance on what he should be doing and is eager to please. Jelly Bean will thrive in an active home and would probably love a yard to run and play in. He recently got to go for an outing to the Whitewater center and had a great time! He was friendly with everyone he met and would love to go on more adventures with his person. Please consider coming to meet this handsome boy!
Name: Paul ID: A1171143 Age: 3 years Weight: 60 lbs Sex: Male Date of Arrival: 8/16/2020 Adoption fee: $10 Vaccinations: Has all required vaccinations Has been microchipped Paul is 60 lbs of love, attentiveness and goofiness! Paul is extremely adoring and laid back, and loves to simply be near you. He requires some training for "sit" and "stay", but seems to understand "no" just fine. He was not food aggressive and showed absolutely no signs of aggression when given a good bath. He shows aggression when he catches sight of other dogs, but this will likely decrease once he is fixed; however, we still recommend that he needs to be the only dog in the home. He is house trained and requires a little work to be crate trained. While he cowers around sudden movements, he loves to interact with men and will follow them around! He doesn't bark or whine; you would never know he's in the house. He does entertain himself when there's a tennis ball handy, and he's downright giddy with tug ropes. He is a chunky monkey that wants nothing other than to be close and sit in your lap or drape himself across your legs, and he is so utterly affectionate. Overall, this is a great dog!
Name: Gunther ID: A1170663 Age: 11 months Weight: 47 lbs Sex: Neutered Date of Arrival: 8/28/2020 Adoption fee: $40 Vaccinations: Has all required vaccinations Has been microchipped He is still a puppy who has lots of puppy energy. This boy LOVES water He likes chasing the flirt pole, playing tug, and is crazy about toys; he definitely wants to be chewing on something (no towels in the crate for him). He needs durable chewing toys! He would be a great companion for sports or exercising. He's house trained He is good in the crate at his foster home, but will whine first He will sit and wait for you to tell him to come out of the crate or to go outside, and he does well with training and picks things up pretty quickly. Foster thinks he's okay with dogs but needs slow introductions, he gets scared when dogs or strangers approach him too quickly. He appeares to be kid friendly; He is an energetic puppy who might be too much for a toddler though. Gunther will always need some kind of entertainment Not cat friendly He is not an annoying barker but he'll boof/bark at strangers or weird noises when he's in the house. All in all, he is such a fun pup!!
Name: Escher ID: A1171212 Age: 4 years Weight: 59 lbs Sex: Male Date of Arrival: 8/17/2020 Adoption fee: $10 Vaccinations: Has all required vaccinations Has been microchipped Enjoyed fetching the tennis ball, affectionate, pulls on leash but would probably respond well to training. Does not like cats.
