Thank you for considering one of our wonderful dogs for your family. Our dogs come from all over Madison County Tennessee; from the high kill municipal facility, found as strays, abandoned by owners, surrendered to us by broken hearted families that simply cannot keep the pet because of harsh circumstances.
Our STATDawgs, as we like to call them, receive all of the vet care that they need; routine vaccinations, deworming, blood tests, spay/neuter, and the treatment and/or management of any health issues.
Our STATDawgs are not housed in a shelter type environment. They are each placed in a private home to be fostered. They are given the opportunity to learn proper house manners, basic commands and social skills. They learn to be polite on outings to adoption events, walks, and monthly visits to the local veteran's home where they bring joy to the residents.
We will provide you with a full and honest health record as well as full disclosure about behavior and temperament from the foster.
S.T.A.T. makes a substantial effort to assure that adoptable animals are in good health and of good temperament. It is possible, however, that undetectable illnesses or conditions may be present or incubating at the time of adoption, or that dogs may exhibit behavior that was not observed during their foster period. Therefore, S.T.A.T. does not make any guarantee as to age, behavior, breed, health, temperament or ultimate size of any animal.
My name is Raven and before I was rescued I had litter after litter of puppies. I lived outside with a lot of other dogs. One day I was out exploring when I picked up by a white truck with a cage in the back. My puppies were still at home and I was frantic with worry about them.
Thankfully I was reunited with my owner, and my puppies. But the next morning I and my puppies were taken back to the place where the white truck had taken me. Cold concrete and metal, the barking of so many dogs.
We were moved from that place to a new home. Big fence to keep my babies safe, heated house for us to sleep in, clean straw, toys, good food, clean water. I settled in and finished raising my babies.
When it was time for my babies to no longer depend on me they began to leave me. Normally I would have been upset but this time I knew that my babies were going to good homes. With my babies gone I was moved into the house. My life outside had been good, but this was heaven.
Now I understand how to have good house manners, I've been taught the rules of living in a family. I've had great vet care and I feel so good now.
I'm ready to start my new life with a family that will love me for the rest of my life.
