This is Lady, she is a approximately 3 years old. She is described as a lab/collie mix. She has been tested for heart worms and she is clear. She also weighs somewhere around 80 lbs.

Lady is very energetic, and likes a lot of attention. However if you like the more laid back dog you should check out Buck from last week that was posted on our page.

They will both be at the Stanly County Animal Control waiting to be adopted. Go visit them and see if they are the dog for you!

Derrick Smith Photography really can capture the beauty of our area! Badin Lake is looking gorgeous as usual! #VisitStanly

A view one recent evening from the shores of Badin Lake. It was incredible how the shore of the lake had eroded and these trees had fallen in the water. It's amazing how you see something different when you visit the same places multiple times. I also love this spot because of all the moss growing on the ground.

Congratulations to our interns Evan McDow and Klay Gill on Graduating this past weekend! Proud of you guys! #VisitStanly

Join the Broncos United FC NC this Saturday night as they take on DEL SOL FC at Albemarle High School at 7:00pm.

Derrick Smith Photography really caught a nice shot of the Trestle in Badin! I'm sure there are a lot of locals that have great memories here! #VisitStanly

Took a drive recently over to the railroad trestle that crosses over Badin Lake to watch the sunset. I was blessed with a beautiful one with a fishing boat in the water and the golden light of the evening reflecting off the steel beams of the trestle!

Meet Rascal, a 2 year old pittie that is super friendly! It's #NationalAdoptAShelterPet day and the Stanly County Animal Control has some wonderful animals that would make a great new addition to someones family! #VisitStanly

Wow, Derrick Smith Photography, caught the sunset at Morrow Mountain State Park perfectly! #VisitStanly #MorrowMountain

The sunset this past Saturday evening was just spectacular! This was captured from the top of Morrow Mountain with the help of a couple of fellow Stanly County residents and their four-legged friend. The funny thing is I almost didn't go out that evening because it had been cloudy, but I'm so thankful that I did! :)
