DeeDee is a very special girl. She is sensitive and needs an adopter who is very patient and understanding. She is gorgeous, calm, quiet, house trained, crate trained, rides great in the car, likes the company of other dogs and is just an all around amazing girl. The catch is that DeeDee was not socialized with humans early in her life. It has taken some time for her to overcome her apprehension of people but now comes to her foster mom for petting and loving.

DeeDee loves to go on walks and gets pretty excited when she sees the leash in my hand. She knows the commands wait, stay and sit. She is more of a timid and shy baby initially until she trusts you. She is fine with children, adults and other dogs but she may hide in her crate initially until she feels comfortable with them and then venture out to see them.
DeeDee is definitely more active but has adapted beautifully to a low activity household. Loves her treats, chew toys, rawhides and bully sticks. She comes a-runnin' when ever she hears the treat bag.

She is a the kind of dog that can be in your home but is never obtrusive as she is able to be independent. I love her dearly and she may be slow to bond with her new family, so she would do best with someone who has patience. DeeDee could be best described as a dogs' dog as they are her best friends. She doesn't exhibit any separation anxiety and isn't scared of storms either. She loves to run and zooms about when off leash. She would love a yard to explore as she is intrigued by wildlife. Anyone who has spent any time with her can't help but fall in love. She is one adorable pup, a true diamond in the rough!

DeeDee is currently fostered in Huntsville, Alabama. She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, Rabies, micro chipped, and Heartworm negative. If you'd like more information about the adoption process please email or apply directly online at

About Friends of Rescue - Knoxville, TN

About Our Rescue Group...

Friends of Rescue is a certified 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2009, consisting of volunteers who are devoted to saving shelter animals that are in danger of euthanasia. Southern shelters have a constant overflow of dogs and cats, little funding, and limited space. Once the animals arrive at the shelter, they have very little time. It is our goal to help save these adoptable animals and find loving individuals/families who will provide committed, FORever homes. We are NOT professional trainers or animal behaviorists; simply volunteers who are trying to save these animals from euthanasia. Each animal in our program is in a foster home and receives all age-appropriate vetting while in our care.

Our animals are mostly fostered in northern Alabama. But we have many wonderful adopters who come from the Tennessee area to adopt our wonderful adoptables.
