  Sam, ~2- 4 years Male Silky Terrier  Mix
Sam

Click on picture to enlarge

Apply To Adopt

Sam is a shaved down Silky Terrier who loves his person more than he loves other dogs. He was in a large shelter in Boston and very nervous. He is shy at first and likes to be the one to come to you and then he will be your pal. He may give a bark at first meeting but is just telling you to meet on his terms. He is not interested in other dogs so an only dog home would be best for him. He is an adorable dog who will go far in the right home. He will give back all the love you give him as he is a loyal boy. No children, please!

Available On: 4/26/14

Apply To Adopt

Banjo, 1.5 years Male Border Terrier Banjo is a handsome border terrier and true to the breed. He is a sweet, affectionate and happy pup. He gets along with everyone - people, dogs and cats. He is an active dog so he requires daily exercise. He would do best with a family that would interact and challenge him. He’s definitely a good candidate for a dog park because he is a very social dog. Banjo has never lifted his leg in the foster home and is completely housetrained. He is also crate trained. But of course he needs to be taken out consistently. He walks well on a leash and enjoys car rides. He sleeps through the night in his crate. He needs to continue with his obedience training but listens very well and picks up cues easily. He really wants to please and wants someone to bond with. Banjo is meant to be the love and joy of a family’s life. UPDATE: Banjo has a luxating patella and may need surgery. He is seeing the orthopedic surgeon on Monday to determine this. He will be at our weekend Meet & Greets though. He is so sweet and quiet!

Available On: 4/26/14

Apply To Adopt

Lucy is a 8 month old spayed black Lab mix who weighs 35-40 lbs. Miss Lucy's most favorite thing is the softest dog bed in the house. She is not selfish and gladly snuggles with other foster dogs on it. She is great with the foster cat too. Lucy walks on her leash and as she walks will constantly look up at you with love in her eyes. She is so appreciative of any attention it is heartbreaking. She rides fine in the car and gets along with all sizes of dogs in foster. She has had no accidents in the house. Her foster mom says "Fostering Lucy has been a pleasure and a privilege". What a sweet pup! She won't be coming until 4/24 because she took a tumble just before getting on the van and was limping so they held her back. It turns out it's just a bruise.

Apply To Adopt

Daphne is a Border Collie/ Lab mix, 6 months old 40 lbs This beauty came into a TN animal shelter with two other very large dogs. If they were parents she may have great pyr as well so she will be a large girl. She has a white tip on her tail and speckles of gray and white on her feet. Daphne gets along with all the dogs in her foster home and plays all day. She loves her foster mom and wants to be with her all the time. She will lie by your feet in the evening and will pace around if she needs to go outside. She has learned to leave the foster cats alone. Daphne loves walking on the leash and has been working on crate training. Another friendly dog or a fenced in yard would be great but not a requirement (unless you have kids under 12). She is a complete love and will bond quickly to her human family. Available 4/26 at our Meet & Greet

Available On: 4/26/14

Apply To Adopt

This little guy was the love of an elderly woman’s life though her family dropped him off at a high volume kill shelter in TN. Luckily our rescue team was able to get him. Comstock is the true definition of a lap dog and that’s where he is happiest. And once he climbs on a lap and melts you with his adoring eyes, you won’t want to put him down. He is puppy pad trained and loves his little sweaters. He gets along fine with other dogs and cats. He did meet a toddler and was very sweet with him too. So another appropriate size dog would be fine. But his human is his primary focus and love.

Apply To Adopt

Charming, 7 months Female Beagle/Smooth Coat Collie Mix Charming is ready to charm you with her striking markings and sweet, loving temperament. She loves playing with other dogs so an evenly matched dog in the household may be fine. But primarily Charming wants to be closely bonded to her person. She’s still very much a youngster so she needs lots of interactive playtime and exercise, as well as toys and chews. She would make a great family dog but she definitely needs someone that has the time to work with her and introduce her to new things and situations. Obedience training should be easy with her as she has such a strong desire to please.

Agave
Agave
Click on picture to enlarge

Available On: 4/23/14

Apply To Adopt

If any dog deserves a forever happy home it’s this sweet beautiful girl. Agave and her pup Buster were dumped in a neighborhood in TN. They wandered around scared and starving. Finally a kind lady took them in until rescue was able to get them. In the meantime the woman observed that Agave wouldn’t eat until her pup finished and she wouldn’t lay down to sleep until she knew her pup was safely tucked in. We have observed this behavior before in Plott hounds and can’t say enough about this wonderful breed. Agave went into a foster home and her pup went to another. This was necessary to give them each the best chance to develop properly. After the separation, Agave went into a deep depression and seemed paralyzed by her sadness and pain. But rescue refused to give up on her. With time and love she slowly started coming around. And now she has blossomed into a wonderful dog. Rescue wanted to encapsulate the essence of her touching sweet nature and that is why she’s name Agave. She has so much love in her heart and she will make someone an incredibly devoted companion. She wants to be near her human as much as possible. She is completely housetrained, sleeps fine in a crate or a soft bed, and rides perfectly in the car. She needs daily exercise and especially enjoys long walks. Her coloring is a marbled brindle and is very striking. This is not a dog that you would get as a companion for another dog. She is fine with other dogs but she needs a human to closely bond with. This special girl comes with a strong desire to please. The depth of her love is hard to describe but it is definitely reflected in her beautiful amber eyes. She needs someone that has the time to show her how truly wonderful the world can be. Agave certainly deserves that. Precious! She is happiest with a fenced in yard and her people home. She loved the doggy door at her first foster home, but did not enjoy the leash walking at the second foster home.

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 becomes very attached to one or two adults in the household and he will resource guard them.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Laurel is a beautiful Belgian Malinois who was picked up as a local stray. She is a sweetheart of a dog who loves everyone! She's a wonderful dog who is good with dogs and people. We're not sure about cats, but we think she would be fine. She looks big in the picture but she's actually petite. From her foster: she goes in her crate with door open to hang out. She plays really well with Dagwood/Jaime (pictured here). She eats well. She loves to just hang out with us, laying around on the floor or in her crate. She is 100% housebroken. She slept quietly all night in her crate right next to Jaime's crate!! She is quiet and easy, a pleasure!! She does not seem fearful. She loves to play with toys and would love another dog or teens in her forever family. Laurel will be at the Meet and Greet Sat. April 19th, 12:30pm - 3pm.

Adoption Pending

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.

Adoption in Progress

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.
