Hoss's Story...
Meet Hoss, a seven-week old male Belgian Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mix. Hoss has gorgeous, soft, medium length brown and white fur, with markings far closer to the Belgian Shepherd than the Labrador. This little guy is smart, lively, cheerful, and always looking for something to discover. He loves to play, carries his toys everywhere, and shares well with his siblings. He always has time for a cuddle although he is on the go again before long. He loves to go outdoors to play, chases everything, and generally explores every inch of the yard. He has huge paws but is a gentle giant, almost twice the size of his sisters. He has a quiet, relaxed disposition and never tries to bully the other puppies. Once he’s played a long while, chased puppies, and had a good meal, Hoss heads for his doggie bed and crate and enjoys a long nap cuddled with his sisters or the other litter of puppies. He likes all humans – young and old and gets along with all the other dogs. Hoss currently lives with his foster family and his sisters, in Middle Tennessee.

Hoss is healthy, has received his first set of puppy vaccines, and will be vetted until he is adopted. We spay and neuter all animals in our care, but as Hoss is still too young to be neutered, his adoptive family must commit to having him neutered when he’s old enough. As such, Hoss’s adoption fee will be $150, with $70 returned to the adopters, once we have confirmation the pup has been fixed.

For more information on Hoss, please contact Louise Vande Wiele at louisevdew@gmail.com and we will respond as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, please read the following so that you are aware of our process, and that you agree to it, before asking to adopt one of our rescues.

Anyone wanting to adopt a dog from the RARFS is expected to fill out an adoption application, provide references, sign an adoption contract, agree to a home visit, and finally to pay an adoption fee. Once the application is received, references checked, and a home visit completed, and everything is satisfactory, families can take their new family member home. Should a dog adopted from RARFS need to be rehomed, we ask that the dog be returned to us, or that we approve the new home. We have a no questions asked return policy, but fees will not be reimbursed.

Families who rent must provide a letter from their landlord stating that they are allowed to have a dog listing any size or breed restriction.

We prefer that families come and pick up their new family member, but a licensed pet transport is available. Should we need to transport dogs to their new homes, the adopter will need to pay $150 per dog, to the transport company.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hoss, a Cookeville Belgian Shepherd/Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Belgian Shepherd/Labrador Retriever for sale in Cookeville, or seeking a Belgian Shepherd/Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Cookeville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cookeville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cookeville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Belgian Shepherd/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Belgian Shepherd/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cookeville paves the way for another one to be saved.
