Grady and Orville

Grady is a white and tan, male terrier mix. He is about a year old and weighs 42 lbs. He is an energetic ball of love. He has a very happy and playful disposition and always has a smile on his face. His trainer calls him a real goofball. He will make a great family dog and loves kids. Grady came into the Craven/Pamlico Animal Shelter as a stray. He has such a happy disposition that it was decided to enroll him into the New Leash on Life program. Currently, Grady is at the Craven County Correctional Institution where he is being trained by prison inmates to be housebroken, crate trained, leash trained and given basic obedience commands. When he graduates from the program on December 7th, he will be ready to move right into his new home with his forever family. If you are looking for a playful guy that will keep you laughing, give Grady a chance. PS. Grady has webbed toes and loves the water including mud puddles and baths.

Orville is a 14 month old, male Beagle who weighs 25 lbs. He is medium to high energy with a personality that is friendly and outgoing. He is sweet and calm but enjoys a romp. He would love to be with other dogs for companionship. As he is very tolerant, he should be good with children.

Orville is currently in the New Leash on Life program at the Craven Correctional Institution where he is being trained by prison inmates to be housebroken, crate trained, leash trained and given basic obedience training. When he graduates on December 7th, he will be ready to move into his new home. His new family will be able to come to graduation, see him strut his stuff, meet his inmate trainer and take him home. You will have in time for your Christmas pictures.
