Tamara is a 4-5 year old female chihuahua. Her human Mom passed away and Tamara is looking for her new person to bond to, to love and to go everywhere with! She is quite happy being home, sitting in your lap but she is also quick to want to go out. She does great on a leash and loves to ride in the car. She's great meeting people and dogs but would do better living in a quiet home with no other animals and no children. Basically, if you want to stay home, she is fine with that and if you want to go, she is fine with that. She just wants to be with her human and do what the human wants to do! Are you looking for a companion to be by your side? Then Tamara is your girl!

Tamara is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped. She is fostered in Huntsville, AL but not picky about where she ends up as long as she is loved. To learn about our adoption process, email or apply directly 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.

Come Meet Our Pets...

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.
