Gretchen is approximately 3 years old. She came to Misplaced Mutts from the shelter and extremely pregnant. She had never been in a house before and was basically semi feral. She ate her way through a window frame to escape her first foster home. While nursing puppies she became more dependent on people and was a very good mom. She's learned to trust her foster family and is comfortable with a very strict routine. If adopted her new family would need to start from scratch to earn her trust and get her used to a whole new environment. For now, she's happy, so we are happy.



Marvella is an old girl who came to Misplaced Mutts so skinny that you could see every bone. She also was riddled with mammary cancer and heart worms. We had to fatten her up before she could have surgery and then had her tumors removed. She's considered a hospice dog now but she is doing great. She loves people and car rides more than anything in the world, as well as kids. She needs to be an only dog in her hospice home as she lived most of her life on a chain outside unable to defend herself.



Simon joins Misplaced Mutts from Carteret County Humane Society. Being blind doesn't stop him. He uses his nose to explore the yard and gets along with everyone. Simon has had dental work, was neutered, and is doing wonderfully. He loves car rides, snacks, and snuggles. He enjoys warm, soft blankets and is just a happy boy.
