UPDATE!!!! Tanner has had his first knee surgery! He is already showing his relief! We still need to get the other knee fixed but there is no reason Tanner could not be in a home that wanted him forever while we get these knees taken care of!
Tanner needs surgery on BOTH knees. The estimate is $4500. Please consider a donation to help us get this boy ready for a forever home. PayPal email@example.com . Please mark them Tanner.
Say hi to Tanner! Tanner has been in boarding since being pulled from the shelter. We are so happy to announce that he finally has a foster home to go to! What we have learned is that Tanner is a good boy and likes people, dogs, and cats! He grins like a opossum when happy which is often! Tanner is not quite 3 years old and has been dumped 3 times by people. He has found himself in TWO different shelters! If ever a dog needed a home that really loved him, was really committed to him... Tanner is that dog!
Tanner is neutered, micro chipped, HW negative, and current on all vaccinations. If you can offer Tanner a committed, responsible and loving home, please contact East TN Pit Bull Rescue.
East TN Pit Bull Rescue adopts out to companion homes only. Adoptions require an application that is verified, a meeting that includes ALL members of the household, a home visit, and a trial period. We do not place our dogs in homes with unaltered pets or homes that have pets but do not have a vet. All of our dogs are placed as inside pets, spayed/neutered, micro chipped, vaccinations current, and HW- or treated within the last 6 months for heart worms by our vet. Adoption fees start at $150 for adults and $200 for pups.
