My name is Pete, and I love everybody! And my red blanket! And my Nylabones! I am between 18 mos. and 2 yrs old, 60 lbs. of muscle, house trained, crate trained, good on a leash, neutered, tattooed, microchipped, current on vaccinations. Don’t be fooled by my scary pit bull face. I’m just a very handsome goofball who hogs the bed and snores just a little. I’m athletic, but not hyper, and am a good sleeper. I’m friendly to cats, other dogs, and kids. I used to jump up on visitors, but have improved dramatically. I occasionally must be reminded because I’m so happy happy HAPPY to see them!

I am intensely loyal and affectionate, a TERRIFIC watch dog, but not an attack dog! When I’m not napping or playing with my buddy Jack the Pyrenees, I follow Foster Mom around, gazing at her adoringly. I’m very smart, and so eager to please! I sit politely and wait for my dinner dish to be placed on the floor, and I know “sit” and “stay.” I should of course have a fenced yard so I can show off how fast I can streak across the grass.

I was adopted in May by a man who saw at once that I was not a good fit for an elderly stroke victim on a walker. Foster Mom helped him find a calm senior dog, and now I live with her, waiting for a permanent home. She loves me sooo much, but already has 3 special needs dogs, 2 of whom are big boys. Her 3rd dog is Hopsey, a senior shepard mix missing a front leg. She is the boss of everybody, especially me. If she thinks Jack & I are playing too rough in the house, she barks at me sternly and I obey at once!

Please contact Foster Mom if you think I may be your guy, ctaite@dcso.nashville.org, I am so easy to love, and this is my chance!

About East C.A.N. (Community Action Network)

About Our Rescue Group...

East Nashville has always had an over abundance of animals roaming our streets. In an attempt to help the animals with as much speed and efficiency as possible a neighborhood effort was organized. Our mission is to make a positive and immediate difference for animals and people in East Nashville by facilitating neighbors helping neighbors.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have fund raisers and adoption events through out the year, typically in spring, summer and fall. Signing up on our mailing list (via our website) will get you invites to all of our events.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a required application on our website that includes personal and vet references. We do pre-adoption home visits and periodic follow up visits post adoption. There is a $120 rehoming fee for each animal if they are microchipped or $100 if they are not.
