It is our hope that this page will help these dogs find new homes before it's too late

TILLY and MAX are very bonded and need a home together by January !!!!!


We have had no interest in them for months now💔


From their mom:

I am still trying to find a new home for my 2 dogs. I have a 6 year old male beagle mix and a female 5 year old boxer mix. They are up to date on shots, monthly heartworm and every other month flea and tick. They are house trained, know sit, lie down. They could be trained more and need more exercise than I can give them. They are super sweet dogs. They need to be trained around other dogs. They are being adopted out through ECCA to make sure they go to a good home. I would like them to stay together if possible. I need them in another home by January. We are located in Chesapeake, VA

ECCA adopted Tilly to her family in Aug 2015
Since then her and Max have obviously bonded. We do not want them split up. Losing their family is going to be hard on them so we don’t want them to lose each other also. PLEASE...... I know it’s a tall order when we want two dogs adopted together but it can happen! ...... IF they are shared enough then their pics and story will touch someone’s heart 🙏

They have not been around cats
Have not been socialized with other dogs
Have grown up with children!
They need a safely fenced yard to play and run.
Both have been sterilized
UTD on vaccines and preventatives
They have been well taken care of and loved.



Name: Odin
Age: 2 years
Gender: Male
Traits: Good with kids
Contact: Shelby at

My heart aches to do this and I’ve always sworn I never would. Our sweet Odin is miserable in our home. There’s not much space for him to run and being the boxer he is, he has a lot of energy. He also has separation anxiety and gets scared when he is left alone for too long. I cannot keep holding onto him for my own selfish reasonings when I know he is unhappy. I am looking to rehome him. He is wonderful with kids, My son is 2 and they play all the time. I am looking for a LOVING home and someone who has plenty of space for him to run and play. He is 2, birthday is January 18th.

LALO -In Search of great home for this beautiful boy. He's a lab mix and a cuddle bug. He's great with kids - although he forgets he's not a small dog. He loves belly rubs and sleeping is his favorite hobby. He needs a home or rescue ASAP!

It is with a heavy heart that we need to find a new home for my brother’s two dogs due to upcoming professional and life changes.  We are looking for a loving home to take in the two of them together, as they grew up together.


We care about these two very much and will no entertain anyone with ill intent or who is not willing to care for the dogs’ best interest. 

General info:  Both dogs are about 6 years old and females. They are inside dogs and accustomed to using a doggie door. Both are incredibly sweet and quite loyal.

Name: Marabelle
Age: 8 years old
Gender: Females
Contact: call/Text her foster Mom, Grace, at 910-352-6256

This sweet gal was thrown from a motorboat off the coast of Wilmington, NC and the scoundrels in the boat sped away while a witness watched in horror. She swam for her life and was picked up by Animal Services. She has been at the shelter for several months and was on death row when a nice lady named Jane sponsored her and I’ve been housing her ever since. Marabelle is approximately 8 years old, spayed, current on vaccines and microchipped. She has done fine with her foster mates, but I think would prefer being the only dog, or maybe companion to a similar sized male dog. She is very chill and gentle, and her favorite activities are riding in a car and sunning herself. She walks well on a leash and knows how to sit on command. She weighs about 40lbs, has a beautiful brindle coat, and deserves a second chance....if you have room in your heart and home.
