Update! General has found his happy ev-fur after and has a new home!

” Hello from Mr. Mellow-Yellow” (aka General)!  WAIT!  General is a calm, settled, slightly-older-but-still-moderately-active gentleman and is your dream dog if you like well-behaved, easy-going fellas.  This is your sign!!!    Don’t click past him because he’s not a young pup.  General came to Sea Dog Rescue after losing his family as a result of Hurricane Matthew in 2016.  He was super skinny when he became an SDR Ship Mate and has since spent most of his time in the galley…eating more chow…steadily putting on the pounds he needed.   He’s never looked more handsome, and he’s now a respectable, almost-70 pounds!  General is low key, yet still, likes to get out and go (he rides great in the car!) and is a loyal companion. He fits like a well-worn glove and is undemanding of attention, yet adores being petted and being close to you.  His steady-on personality and serenity allow him to fit in with most any family, and he’ll thrive with a family and home that has an active, laid-back vibe.  He’s a go with the flow kind of guy.  General was tested with cats during his stay at the vet’s office and did great with them, and he is very dog-friendly.  He lives with another dog in his Wilmington, NC foster home, and socializes well with new doggy friends.  General also adores attention and soaks up affection from people of all ages.

Generals’ estimated DOB is October 2005 and he weighs about 70 lbs. He is neutered, potty trained, micro-chipped, and has great house manners. General will do well in a home with other animals and does well with people of all ages; children should always be directly supervised around any dog.  Because General loves a nap on the patio or deck, we want him to have a home where he can continue to enjoy this past-time; General would prefer a home with a fenced yard so he can safely laze about, enjoying the breeze for a little while on a nice day.  He’s a mellow-yellow-fellow and is ready to join your family now!


*Sea Dog Rescue is a foster home based rescue – we do not have a shelter or kennel facility nor do we have regular hours when our companions can be seen. For the safety of our foster caregivers and our dogs, applications must be submitted and references checked prior to setting an appointment for a Meet and Greet with our dogs in our foster homes.*

All of our dogs have some potty training under their belly, however, dogs less than 8 months of age are not considered reliably potty trained. Most of our dogs less than 6 months of age are not yet spayed or neutered but this will be done by the rescue when they are 6 months old and is included in the adoption fee; these dogs enter homes as ‘Foster to Adopt’ and ownership transfer will not occur until after surgical sterilization is completed. All of our dogs are up to date on vaccinations, including rabies if they are old enough. Microchipping is included in the adoption fee.
