Tiger is in rescue because we were alerted to a situation where there were many dogs at a house in North Shelby county who needed help. They were basically living on the porch and yard but constantly getting in the street and the neighbors were worried about them. Since none of the pets were spayed or neutered, there were more dogs every few months. Tiger could be anywhere from 2-5 years old. She tested heartworm neg and is now spayed and fully vaccinated and microchipped. She has been responding great to being an inside dog and is letting me handle her beautifully. Her adoption fee is $150
The ideal home for this Real Good Dog will have a secure fenced yard. A solid history of excellent vet care for current or previous pets is required. Preference will be given to applicants who have specific breed experience.

We adopt dogs from Memphis Animal Shelter when we can. The shelter has an 83% euthanasia rate, one of the highest in the country. Unfortunately, any dog coming from Memphis Animal Shelter, and most other shelters for that matter, will have been in contact with contagious illness. Even though the dogs have been in foster care and appear to be in good health, they may become stressed when changing environments and exhibit signs and symptoms of illness. If you have other pets, they need to be up to date on vaccines before bringing a shelter dog into your home. We will take the adopted animal back, but we are not responsible for your other animal's vet care. We always disclose where the dogs have come from. Please ask for any information about the dogs and exercise due caution if you have immunocompromised animals.
