This dog is located and fostered in Crossville, Tennessee. SPONSORED (FREE) ADOPTION TO APPROVED HOME!!
Weighing about 60 pounds, Drambuie, a beautiful, likely Boxer/American Pit Bull Terrier mix (it's a guess), grabs attention with his rich mahogany brindle and white coat, adorable underbite, and eagerness to learn.
Almost five years old, "Buie" is boarding in an indoor/outdoor rescue kennel in Crossville (TN). He gets along great with people (though is probably a bit rowdy for small children), has very high energy, needs lots of exercise, and plays hard with some dogs (may not be friendly with others). We would suggest he be the only family pet (no other dogs or cats). He loves to splash in his wading pool, runs full steam ahead for the pure joy of running (fenced yard required), and delights in games of fetch and tug-of-war (he's learning to "release" and practicing 30+ other obedience and trick skills, including heel, sit, down, stay, shake hands, spin, catch, "find it", and beg). He has been fully vetted, vaccinated, microchipped, and is on preventives for fleas, ticks, heart worms and other internal parasites. Great in a car (no whining or pacing), he is crate-, house-, and leash-trained; and he's a gentleman for the vet. His food- and praise-motivation makes him a special delight to work with.
Buie is looking for a family to love, train and play with him. Since his ancestry is of such a strong breed, continuation of training is a must. Will you give this exuberant adult a chance at a sunny future? If your family has experience with strong breeds and a love for the high-energy, fast-learning temperament, Buie is your boy!

THIS PET IS FOSTERED IN TENNESSEE! We do list and adopt our pets nationwide, so distance is not a problem in most areas. We have a variety of transportation options to bring your new family member to you. Typical transport cost to the northeast is $150, but may be less depending on your location (Due to interstate adoption regulations, we are not able to adopt to RI and MA residents.)
A.A.R.F. (All About Rescue and Fixin' Inc.) http://aarf-tn.com/ is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) no kill animal rescue organization located in the Upper Cumberland area of Tennessee.

Prior to adoption, all canines and felines are spayed or neutered, have received their age appropriate vaccinations, have been de-wormed for common parasites, and have received treatment for prevention of fleas and ticks. All canines over the age of 6 months have been tested for heartworm. All canines are put on heartworm prevention as soon as possible - this means dogs as soon as they are tested negative. Puppies are put on prevention immediately. All felines, regardless of age, have been tested for feline leukemia and FIV. Each animal receives a health check by a licensed veterinarian prior to adoption. Anything else found will be treated by our organization prior to adoption.
