Ebony's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Ebony's Story...
Meet Ebony, an eleven month old (as of January 2016) black Labrador Retriever/Great Dane mix who weighs in at 30 lbs, soft and silky short fur, and a beautiful face. She is small for a Dane mix and the vet says she will grow to about 45 lbs. This little girl is calm, quiet, and loving. She likes everyone – young and old. She gets along well with dogs but has never met a cat.

Ebony is a happy, playful girl, and once she is played out, she heads into her crate to sleep. When she first meets people she is a bit shy, but comes around quickly. She is housebroken, crate trained, and learning to walk on a leash. Ebony would benefit from a happy family with or without children, and with or without dogs. She is quite happy to be petted and get belly rubs for hours. She likes being up on the couch but gets down when told. Ebony is not a barker and would be comfortable in any setting but preferably an urban or rural house with a fenced in yard. She will need daily walks and exercise because of her breeds mix.

Ebony is spayed, up to date on shots, and healthy. Her adoption fee is $150.

For more information on Ebony, please contact Louise Vande Wiele at 615 500 3164 or through email at We will respond as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, please read the following so that you are aware of, and agree with, our process before asking to adopt one of our rescues.

Anyone wanting to adopt a dog from the RARFS is required 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. Families who rent must provide a letter from their landlord stating that they are allowed to have a dog, and listing any size or breed restriction.

We are located in Cookeville, Tennessee. 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 arrange and pay $150 per dog directly to the transport company.

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 adoption and transport fees will not be reimbursed.

As a nonprofit organization, RARFS relies on your adoption fees to cover costs. We receive no other outside funding. Fees help us care for the animals we shelter and enable us to offer them to you for adoption in a healthy and happy state. Fees include costs for spaying/neutering, intake vaccines, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention, and any other medical expenses. Without these fees we could not continue to rescue animals from abandonment and/or a life of pain and suffering. We’ve been asked these questions before, so: NO, we will not waive or reduce adoption fees; YES, you can further pay it forward by making a larger donation than the requested fee.

We rescue dogs, not breeds, and we want you to fall in love with the dog you adopt into your family so, as potential adopters, please be aware that the information we provide is to the best of our knowledge. When it comes to breed or age information on a given dog, we must often guess, rely on our knowledge, or go by what we are told by rescuers, vets, and breed experts. If you are looking for a purebred dog, please refer to one of the many excellent breed specific rescue organizations on this website.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ebony, a Cookeville Labrador Retriever/Great Dane dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Great Dane for sale in Cookeville, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Great Dane dog 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 Labrador Retriever/Great Dane breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Great Dane rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cookeville paves the way for another one to be saved.
