Available On: 4/12/14

Apply To Adopt

Charlotte was pulled from a rural shelter in TN before she was going to be euthanized. Fortunately, our rescue in TN got to her in time. Charlotte is all corgi - playful and sweet and a joy to be around. She is very petite, about 10 lbs. She has a beautiful brindle and white coat. She gets along with all people, dogs and cats. She will do best as the only dog in the family as she can get overwhelmed when other dogs are in her face a lot. She walks fine on a leash and sleeps through the night in her crate. She is an active dog so she needs daily exercise. Charlotte is very smart and wants to please. Small dog savvy person will be best to stay consistant with her obedience. She wants to be an important member of the family and loves to be loved.

Max   Max
Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

Max is a friendly 2.5 year old neutered Australian Cattle Dog mix. His owner sadly gave him up because she was working 13 hour days. He is a good boy who needs to lose the weight he gained from all the crating. We think it will come off as he is an active boy. He loves other dogs, does great in doggy daycare or the dog park. Ideally a person who has the time and willingness to exercise him would be the best. He is a really nice dog. He does have a very high energy level and needs a lot of brushing. He was rescued at 6 months old and was given a lot of attention until recently. He loves hiking and swimming. He plays with visiting children, but wasn't raised in a busy household with kids. We think he would be great with teens. He likes to chew on antlers and he is crate trained. If you and your household members work alternate hours or are home a lot, it will help him to take the extra pounds off quickly. He was on Fromm food and we are putting him back on it. He is available immediately.

Apply To Adopt

Rosco is a 2 year old German Shepard/Husky mix. His mother was a purebred Shepherd and his father was a white Husky. He looks like a Shiloh Shepherd with long, silky fur. He is GREAT around kids, will play catch till your arm falls off. He is a total snow bunny and loves a good belly rub. He will jump up on people to greet them at the door so 10 and up is best -- he just gets very excited and jumps up. When you leave, if left to his own devices, he sometimes gets into things (trash, the couch if something is left under the cushion, etc.) He's very loyal, great around other dogs and not too bad on a leash when you use a harness. He's never met a dog or a sprinkler that he hasn't loved! He's an amazing dog and needs a big yard and someone who can spoil him! His owner says: "When we had our son recently our Landlord decided not to renew our lease for the house we were living in and we were forced to move into an apartment. My husband and I feel that this situation is not fair to him. He's accustomed to being able to roam in and outside a lot during the day and to be cooped up in such a small space just seems horrible. It breaks our heart to research other options for him but we I believe he needs a forever home that can spoil him and take care of his energy with more than two walks a day." If you feel you are a match for Rosco, please fill out our online application so we can learn more about you and if you seem like a good match, we will arrange for you to meet him at our adoption facility.

Finn is a 15 lb. Pom/Aussie mix who is a nice little dog who needs a dog-savvy adopter. He's an adorable little dog, but he has some insecurities that led to his biting children and strangers.

He's great on leash, doesn't pull, just trots along with you. He loves to find a sun spot to nap. He is a sweet boy and loves love. He has a little dance he does on his hind legs, waving his front paws to greet you when he sees you. Please apply online so that we can be in touch with you.

Apply To Adopt

Keiran is an adorable little Shih Tzu who was displaced when his human mom became ill with breast cancer -- her friends brought him to us asking us to help her darling little dog. Keiran has only one eye, and a slight cherry eye in the other eye, but the eye specialist we took him to says he has good tear production and can see just fine out of his good eye. He does not need eye meds. Keiran is a very affectionate little guy who does not act his age at all. He's also very healthy with a beautiful coat. He is good with cats, dogs, and kids. This beautiful little dog deserves a chance. We just found a long-term foster home so he will be in foster care for awhile before we move him. He is loving his new situation with a stay-at-home foster mom and a little foster sister who is also a Shih Tzu.

Apply To Adopt

Coco is a 4 year old Heinz 57 (mixture of many breeds). She is very healthy and would make a wonderful pet for anyone without little dogs in the home. She was found on the street in Mexico during a visit with family 3 years ago; she was starving and dragging her rear paws behind her. The family took her home and nursed her back to health and have had her since. Unfortunately, the family's chihuahua's are not getting along with her and she has had it with them too, though she got along just fine with many other dogs she has been around, including a beagle mix that they had for 12 years. She has a wheel chair that she can use, and gets along just fine walking and running without it on grass or smooth surfaces. She has full control of her bowels/bladder and is fully housebroken. Please apply online as she is not at the shelter.

Adoption Pending

Lucy is a 4.5 year old purebred Cairn Terrier who is a sweet, energetic girl! She is fully up to date on her vaccinations, is microchipped, spayed, crate trained and house trained. She loves people and animals and would do very well in a home with children or other dogs -- she's very social. She is fine with cats too. A fenced yard would be best for her as she is very quick and does love to run around with her dog friends. If you want a lap dog she may not be your girl but she loves everyone she meets. She is about 11 pounds and takes no medication. She was diagnosed with Lyme disease last year but other than one episode of limping/ lameness last fall she has no symptoms. We will treat her homeopathically as we have with other dogs with great success. A new job with extensive traveling has moved her owner to find a better home situation for her. She is a wonderful dog and would be a great addition to any home.

Adoption Pending

Ellie Mae is a very sweet 8 month old Spaniel/Collie mix who came up with her litter mates from TN. She is very shy, but has a volunteer who is working with her under the guidance of our trainer. Her foster mom writes, "Ellie is so sweet. She walks really well on leash and loves to sniff and doesn't pull. Ellie is a joy when meeting other dogs. She loves other dogs and is very gentle and sweet when approaching new dogs. Ellie loves to car ride with our small spitz. They curl up in their dogs beds and think car riding is relaxing. Ellie plays so well with all 3 of our dogs in our fenced in back yard. They play tag and tug o war and she is so gentle. During the day Ellie will take a nap by my feet during office work. At night she sleeps on a dog bed in the same room as our English Setter mix. She has had only a few accidents the first few days and now that she has settled in she makes it through the night. Ellie is so quiet and hasn't barked yet, but when she is tired she makes this adorable sounding puppy yawn. Sometimes she paces at night telling us she is ready for bed. She will curl up next to you on the couch at night and then settle down quickly for bed. She is so smart and has already learned "sit" and "come" and we are working on "stay". She adores our teenage female neighbor and our tween niece. Ellie is shy of men but is making progress." We know she would do best with another dog who can bring her out of her shell. She loves other dogs and is very playful. She is good with cats. She is spayed and has been on heart worm preventive all along. WE ARE REQUIRING A PHYSICAL FENCE for this girl to ensure that she has a safe place to play off leash. We welcome applications and are eager to make the right match for this beautiful, special dog. ELLIE WILL BE AT MEET & GREET SATURDAY 4/5/14, 12pm-2pm.

  Josey, 2 years Female Lab/Hound  Mix     Adopted
Josey Josey, 2 years Female Lab/Hound Mix Fabulous with cats, dogs, kids and she's completely house trained! Josey has such a strong desire to please and is learning quickly house rules. She will need consistency and boundaries to continue her success. She has mastered how ‘sit’ and is learning to ‘stay’. She rides well in the car and wants to go every where with you. She gets along with the other dogs and loves to play with them. Josey is also good w/cats, she enjoys the cats as much as the dogs. She would be happiest not being left alone for long periods of time. She really craves human companionship and has so much love to give. Here's what her foster mom says about her - "She is a counter surfer and is always looking for food, she hasn't touched anything in the house. She sleeps in my bed at night and doesn't move all night. I think her desire to shred and eat things only happens when she is alone. The first night she was here, she slept in the crate in my bedroom and she slept in a dog bed and didn't touch it, so I let her have it when I went to work the next day and she shredded it to pieces. I think she hates to be alone. She follows me everywhere and has to be right by me though she has gotten to the point where she can stay in another room when I take a shower. And she is the sweetest, most loving little dog and really tries hard to please. It is just that all those smells in the kitchen get to be to much and she has to surf. And when the kids across the street are playing outside she just has to climb up into the bay window to check to see what they are up to. She loves kids! I think she needs a stay at home, with a fenced in yard, and someone who can provide adequate exercise. She really does want to be good. It is just so hard. But she is really the sweetest, most affectionate, loving dog. Once she gets over greeting me when I come home, she calms down and is really good in the house. Usually just curls up beside me on the sofa and loves to sit in my lap. And she is good with my dog and doesn't get in her face and is also good with the cats. She is just one of those dogs who needs someone to go the extra mile for this very sweet dog." Josey is a good girl but she chewed up an extension cord and had to have it removed, so we are still raising funds to pay her medical bill.

  Maggie, 1 year Female Cairn Terrier  Mix     Adopted
Maggie Maggie, a young female Cairn Terrier mix, is adorable and spunky. She loves to play! She's not a wallflower by any means and she is fast like lightning so cannot live on a busy road. She's curious and fun loving. She would be fine for teens and up or a single, but please be home for her. You would never know she had a tough beginning. She was brought to an office by a couple who found her in a cemetery along a rural area in TN. She was very hungry and limping from her ordeal. The rescuers provided medical care and searched for her home with no luck. Maggie weighs 11 lbs. She is house trained if kept on a schedule and does fine in a crate. Maggie loves to play with other dogs. We have not had her around children yet so older kids preferable. She will entertain herself with chews and toys and loves to be with her humans. Maggie loves to ride in the car and go for walks. She is very well mannered and listens well. Maggie likes to curl up on your feet or on the couch next to you.

  Betsy, 1 year Female Manchester Terrier/Beagle  Mix     Adopted
Betsy Betsy is an elegant looking small dog with hazel eyes and fawn coloring. She is full of spunk and curiosity and loves to play in a fenced yard where she can safely run and explore. She is great with other dogs and cats. She is very sweet around children. Betsy is highly intelligent and picks up training cues quickly though she will need continual reinforcement. She sleeps in a crate at night without any problems. She is very active and therefore would not do well left alone for long hours. She would do best in a calm environment where she can have regular activity.

  Olivia, 6 months Female JRT/Shepherd  Mix     Adopted
Olivia Olivia is a small mixed breed 6 month old spayed female. She weighs 21 lbs Olivia was tied outside to a clothesline pole in TN. She was rescued by a young man that was worried as most of the time she did not have water or food and was wrapped around the pole more often then not. With those days behind her she is currently enjoying her foster home and has become very acclimated to being a little princess. She is house trained and already spayed. Olivia is not destructive but since she is still young needs to be supervised. Olivia will walk on her leash. Her favorite thing is fetch. She will fetch balls and bring them right back to you. She loves to snuggle with her foster mom, and napping with her is the best thing ever. She is currently in foster with another dog but has not been tested with cats or kids. Olivia is a pretty dog that will probably stay on the small to medium side.

Biscuit Biscuit is an adorably cut and petite neutered male spaniel mix; he is 8 months old, and weighs only 18 lbs. Biscuit was brought into a TN animal shelter with his mother who was a cocker spaniel. Biscuit has a beautiful slick coat that shines like glass. His mother and sibling were adopted and he was left alone. They put another small dog in with him and he snuggled with him on cold nights. Then once again the little dog was adopted and he was alone again. This went on for another month until a sharp rescue person noticed him. He was taken into her home and given comfort and love. She slept on the sofa with him the first night until he fell sound asleep. What a hidden treasure he turned out to be. He is so sweet. He is great with cats and loves other dogs. He loves people but sometimes cowers. This will pass as he trust humans and he will never be abandoned again. He is so sweet and loves to cuddle!

  Lillie, 1 year Female Affenpincher/Terrier  Mix     Adopted
Lillie Lillie was scheduled to be euthanized in a rural TN shelter but luckily rescue was able to save her. She is so sweet and loving. But she’s been through a lot in her young life and needs to bond with someone she can trust to keep her safe. A quiet, understanding family would be best for her. She walks on a leash and sleeps through the night in her crate. She is fine with other dogs and cats. But she really looks to her person as all-important. She is happiest sitting on a lap or curled up at her person’s feet. She is afraid of being left alone and needs reassurance and time. Whomever is willing to give her a second chance Lillie has a lot of love and affection to give in return.
