Hi Ya'll,
Yes, I'm a southern dog....you could say a Southern Gentleman as a matter of fact! I LOVE Newman's Own Treats and I have a very soft mouth. For those who don't know that term....it means I am very gentle when taking treats.

Let me tell you about myself..... I am just a young fellow....8 months old in Nov. I am probably a mix of Labrador Retriever/ Plott Hound and Border Collie and will weigh about 50# more or less when grown. I and my 3 siblings were born in an economically deprived area. Our canine mom is a single mom and did a great job teaching us to be good dogs but she could not continue to take care of all of us so she let Adorable Dogs Rescue step in and help us find homes. My sisters are in homes in NE and doing well but my brother and I are still waiting for our homes.
Please don't let the color of our hair keep you from applying to adopt us. You know the saying "Once you try Black, you will never go back" Ha, Ha!!!! That applies to dogs too. Black dogs are just as good, fun and pretty as any other dog.

I LOVE BEING PETTED. I'LL STAND STILL FOR AS LONG AS MY FOSTER MOM WILL PET ME! I am happy and healthy and have a sweet disposition. I love to have my back and ears scratched!
I have not met any cats yet but can meet some if that is important to you......just let my foster mom know. I'm used to doing my business outdoors so I will try really hard not to have accidents in your house while I'm adjusting to my new home.

If you are interested in adopting me, please ask for an application from my foster mom at adrescue2014@gmail.com. Please note that: We cannot adopt out to a home where the adults work most of the day. It is unhealthy and stressful to leave a dog alone, or to crate him/her for several hours every day. Our pups also require a fenced yard (real fence, (not electronic fences, tie-outs or kennels). We can help you with ideas if you want to easily install an inexpensive type fence before your dog transports. If you don't have a fenced yard or don't plan to install one before your pup joins you, we cannot accept your application! It goes without saying that we expect the dog to be loved and considered a part of the family and not live outside but we feel a dog needs a safe place to exercise.

Our fee is $325 and is tax deductible as we are a registered charity. There is an additional refundable $100 spay/neuter fee. Thank you for rescuing.. We will be waiting to hear from you. Please do not send your payment until you are notified that your application has been approved.

About Adorable Dogs- An All Breed Rescue - MA

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of volunteers in TN who take in owner surrenders and rescue abandoned dogs. We place these dogs in homes in the Northeast.
The dogs are fully vetted before transport to the Northeast. The exception is puppies too young to spay or neuter. We expect them to be altered at the appropriate age and will follow up to make sure this is done. The adults spayed/neutered and are socialized and at least working on being housebroken and crate trained.
We stand behind any dog we place. If the adoption doesn't work out, we want the dog back in our rescue so we can find another home for it.
We have registered with the State of TN and are a 501c3 non-profit organization. Any contributions to Adorable Dogs are tax deductable.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are officially located in TN so most of the time meeting the pet is not possible. We are trying to add foster homes in the Northeast so meeting them will be something we can offer.
We will answer any questions you might have about any of our dogs. Email any questions to adorabledogsrescue@yahoo.com

Our Adoption Process...

An adoption fee, adoption application, adoption contract, home visit and vet references are required. For special needs dogs or senior pets we may lower our fee. See our website for this info.
Our adoption fee covers the vetting: spay/neuter (if age appropriate), vaccinations, fecal, heartworm test, flea/tick meds, heartworm preventative, food and health certificate and $140 transport fee from TN to the Northeast.
