Hi my name is Sonny.  I am about a year old and weigh around 60 lbs.  I am definitely still a puppy at heart.  I'm a very active boy who loves to play, play, play.  My foster mom always says I have a goofy personality and I guess that's a good thing because I am always making her laugh.  I have discovered the love of playing Frisbee!  Whether it's inside the house on a rainy day or out in the backyard, I will jump and chase that Frisbee down until it's mine.  Some days I am very good and will bring it back and other days I want to be funny and get chased around for it.  I am NOT good with cats as I will chase them.  I get very excited when we play in the backyard.  Sometimes I get so excited I start hopping around like a little bunny rabbit and that's no exaggeration. I will just start jumping straight in the air with the biggest smile on my face.  I enjoy taking long or short walks just as long as I get to enjoy it with my family.  I love, love, love to go on car rides.  I will even jump in the vehicle for you just as long as you let me stick my head out the window.  My foster mom is always taking me to Petsmart and Home Depot and when I am out with my family I like to show off.  I want to be everyone's friend and I want everyone to pet me.  When I see someone coming to pet me, I just tend to fall over on my back and let them give me a good belly rub in the middle of the store.  I love seeing everyone smile and laugh.  I am good with children.  Children seem to be closer for me to reach to give them kisses, so I always want to play with kids.  My mom is trying to work on my manners as I do like to jump up sometimes, but I only want to jump up to reach your face to give you a kiss.  As active and goofy as I am, nothing makes me happier than to lay down next to or on my human and fall asleep.  I am crate trained, but sometimes I need an extra push to get me to go inside the crate.  I think bedtime is my favorite time of the day.  I will let my Mom lay down and get comfortable and then it's my turn.  I always lay right next to her so we can snuggle together.  I like to be close to my mom, it makes me feel happy and safe and I feel like I am keeping her safe.  I want a family who will love me the way I will love them.  I want a best friend to sleep and play with, someone who wants to be with me as much as I want to be with them; always and forever.  I am a really good boy who is looking for his new forever home.  Will you be my new best friend?  PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or

About Critter Companion Rescue- DC

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of dedicated rescue people who want to save as many dogs and cats from the local shelters before they are euthanized. On the average....there are only 1 out of 10 animals that get adopted from a shelter. We are dedicated to helping increase pet adoptions by offering a shelter animal a foster home to go to while awaiting an adoptive family to find them on our Petfinder website. Won't you please adopt a shelter animal? Or won't you please help us foster a shelter animal while we are looking for their perfect home? What a gift you can give a dog or cat by giving them a place to feel safe and secure....a forever home or a foster home. Won't you help us at Critter Companion Rescue give them a chance to have a life?

Our Adoption Process...

Most all our dogs are fostered in Tennessee and transport up to the Northeast or New England. Our fees start at $500 and can be higher depending on the dog and circumstances for their vetting. All fees cover the health certificate, transportation up to designated places for families to pick up their pre-adopted dog, spay/neuter, rabies, all shots, fecal and dewormings, microchip, complete vet check up and 4 way heartworm test if dogs are older than 8 months.
