Riley's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Riley's Story...
This is Riley, a beautiful young female in need of a wonderful family! Riley is a Shepherd (unknown)/Corgi mix dog. She’s a great looking girl and always seems to be smiling. Riley is about two-years old. She stands knee high and weighs around 35 lbs. This little girl is timid but she has a lovely disposition and wants to please. She gets along with other dogs but would benefit from being an only pet. Riley needs a family who will love her and give her time to adapt to life with a family, who is, preferably, experienced with dogs.

When Riley arrived at our rescue she was starving and in very bad shape but she’s now healthy although a wee bit overweight. She loves to eat and to lounge around, and being petted makes her very happy. Riley appears to be housebroken but she currently lives in kennels so she will require training in housebreaking, walking on a leash, and snuggling real close. A firm, gentle owner would do very well with training Riley as she is a smart girl. She is spayed and up to date on shots, and her adoption fee is $100.

For more information on our pets, please contact Louise Vande Wiele at 615 500 3164, or at LouiseVdeW@gmail.com. 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.

RARFS rescues 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 visit one of the many breed specific rescue organizations on this website.

As a non-profit organization, RARFS relies on your adoption fees to cover costs. We receive no 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 cover the 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Riley, a Cookeville Corgi/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Corgi/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Cookeville, or seeking a Corgi/Shepherd (Unknown Type) 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 Corgi/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Corgi/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cookeville paves the way for another one to be saved.
