Howie is a 3 year old, 7 pound bundle of sweetness!! This little guy was rescued from a high-kill shelter after being removed from a small puppy mill in Tennessee. He loves people, cats, dogs, and chickens. He loves to play and cuddle with his foster human but definitely prefers women over men. Howie does well left out in the house, prefers to sleep in his "dog cave" at night, and rides well in a car. He is a spunky little guy who would make a great couch buddy for a single woman or a quieter home. If you are interested in adding Howie to your family, go to www.goofyfootrescue.org to complete an online adoption application. Howie is being fostered in west TN and will be transported once his adoption is finalized.

About Goofy Foot Dog Rescue - Allentown, PA

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 setting....so 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 $425 covers all of this vetting AND transportation to you! Adoptions in the state of TN that do not require professional transportation are $225.

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!
