Facts about Truffle

  • Breed: Jack Russell Terrier/Beagle Mix
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 30836294
Truffle came to Asheville Humane Society as a stray, with very painful masses. She dearly wanted to be petted, but then would cry out in pain and confusion when the masses hurt from touch. Truffle had been in pain for so long that she had been conditioned to think she was going to feel pain when someone pet her, so even after the masses were removed, she was still exhibiting fear and distrust, bracing for the pain she thought was coming.

We placed Truffle in a foster home so that she could slowly learn she is no longer in pain and can now enjoy being petted and loved on. She's feeling so much better now! Once she realized that love and petting feel great now, she is a loving, wonderful pup!

This cute little girl is looking for patience and understanding human. This special person has to be willing to give Truffle the time needed for you to earn her trust and devotion. She has developed a relationship with 3 or 4 staff members and is an absolutely joy of a little companion..Happy, cuddly, those people. Unfortunately, that wonderful little personality doesn't show right away and most people aren't willing to put in the time to develop trust. Truffle prefers a quiet home and she would enjoy being your only pet or she can share you with a pet of the same size and energy level.

Truffle has been waiting for some time for her special person to come along. Perhaps it is you???

Our Adoption Process...

We set our adoption fees based on differential pricing, meaning our fees vary and can range from "You Pick The Price" to $250. Most adult cats are "You Pick The Price" and hounds and pitbulls are $35. Fees include spaying or neutering, initial vaccines, deworming, microchip and registration, a free physical exam from an area veterinarian, and one month of free veterinary health insurance. We will also provide a starter bag of Science Diet pet food and a collar, leash and other supplies may be purchased at our Adopt & Shop Retail Store. All animals are spayed or neutered before leaving with adopters; usually you can take your new companion animal home the same day you visit the shelter, otherwise within 24-72 hrs.
