Hey my name is Dodson! I am now accepting applications for a new family as its time for me give all my love to just one family instead of the girls at BBAR. I'm a little shy when first meeting new people but after a few treats and lots of hugs I am just fine. They say I am a lab mix that will be around 45 to 55lbs of body weight when I mature. My foster mom is working with me on some house training rules and she said so far things are going good for me, its a pretty easy process, you pee/poo outside and you get a treat, who wouldn't do that... I get along great with the other dogs and puppies but really prefer to stretch out on the couch while snuggling. If you think I am the boy for you then contact beyond bars animal rescue about bringing me home!

About Beyond Bars Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, Christian based rescue in rural West Tennessee. We believe it is our responsibility to be good stewards of our environment and by doing so, help the needy animals in our area. Unfortunately, the south tends to have an "it's just an animal" kind of attitude most of the time and this means that MANY wonderful companion animals find themselves the victims of neglect, abuse, and abandonment. We strive to rescue and rehome as many of these animals as we can. We maintain approximately 20-25 dogs in our program at any given time (the ones posted here are the ones that are ready to be adopted) and our goal is quality over quantity. We are not saving the MOST dogs of any other rescue but we believe the quality of the pets our adopters are receiving speaks for itself.
We have a "no-kill" policy and only euthanize a dog in our program if there is NO other option available to us (cases of extreme human or other dog aggression or illness/injury that is untreatable and is causing the dog severe pain). We do NOT euthanize an animal for reason of treatable illnesses such as heartworms, mange, etc.
We look forward to many more "saves" in the weeks, months, and years to come and enjoy every chance we get to make a difference. We also consider it our responsibility to educate our community on proper companion animal care, responsible pet ownership, and the positive ramifications of spaying and neutering pets. We have a no-cost weekend summer camp in the works for local children of low income families and look forward to our regularly scheduled talks with our local 4H Club chapters, our service projects with the Boy Scouts, and our other community events.
