Just look at that face! Oh my…how can you not love it?! Elise is a complete sweetheart. She is approximately 8 months old and weighs 10 pounds. She was pulled from a kill-shelter in West TN when her previous owner surrendered her. They didn’t “have time for her” and left her in her crate almost all the time. Elise is very much enjoying life outside of a crate now!! She is a bit timid at first, but once she gets to know you, she will love you! She loves lying next to her foster parents in bed or on the sofa. She is pretty well housebroken (very few accidents!), is over the chewing phase, and would make a great addition to any family. Her favorite activities include sunbathing outside and cuddling! She does fine with other dogs. She would prefer to go to a home with children over the age of 8, as young children can cause her some anxiety if she is not familiar with them.

If you are interested in adding Elise to your family, please go to to complete an online adoption application. She will be transported once her adoption is finalized.

About Goofy Foot Dog Rescue - Staunton, Virginia Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a foster based rescue out of West Tennessee. A surfing term like "goofy foot" in West TN? We are California transplants! Goofy foot means surfing "with your right foot forward"....and we strive to always put the right foot forward in all we do!

We moved to TN from CA 10 years ago and immediately began "rescuing", although we didn't know that's what we were doing. We just knew that stray dogs kept finding us and we would do whatever was necessary to get them vetted and into wonderful, loving homes. We soon ran out of relatives and friends to beg to take a dog so we began branching out. We soon realized that even though we have a massive overpopulation problem here in the south, the eastern states actually have a bit of a shortage of dogs in a rescue we began adopting our Southern Beauties out to the northeast!

When you adopt a dog from Goofy Foot they come to you fully vetted. Fully vetted means they've been to the vet, had age appropriate shots (2 sets if the dog is a puppy), rabies vaccine if over 12 weeks, fecal, deworming, heartworm test if over 6 months, spay or neuter, grooming, flea/tick/heartworm prevention is current and any other vetting that the dog may require. Our low adoption fee of $395 covers all of this vetting AND transportation to you! Adoptions in the state of TN that do not require professional transportation are $195.

Goofy Foot Dog Rescue consists of a husband, wife and two daughters along with several wonderful fosters that offer their homes and hearts to these dogs as a temporary stop on their way to their forever homes. We are grateful for our fosters, supporters and adopters and we couldn't do this without all of you!
