MEET JETHRO!

“Call me goofy.  Call me silly.  I don’t care.  ‘Cuz I just want to go home with you, ok?”  This handsome youngster named Jethro is looking for love and a forever home.  Rescued from the shelter where he was picked up a stray, we cannot imagine why anyone would give up this silly love-bug and gorgeous boy. 

A social butterfly, Jethro enjoys dog-on-dog play and has a great time at doggie day care.  He’s super sweet, cuddly, playful, and silly—but he IS still a big & mouthy puppy at 74 pounds and is not the best dog for small children.  He doesn’t yet know his size or strength.   Jethro still has lots to learn about leash walking, jumping, and controlling his impulses.  We’re working with him every day to teach him all the ropes he needs to know to be the best companion to his adopters.  But he’s an expert in the love and cuddles category.  If an oversized lap dog is what you're looking for, then Jethro is your boy. 

Jethro is a 74 pound neutered male Hound/Lab mix, about 10 months old, housetrained, fully vetted, and up to date on all vaccinations.  He really is just about the perfect dog.  And he’s waiting to meet his forever peeps.

 



About Bonaparte's Retreat Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Named in memory of Bonaparte, her own adopted shelter dog, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and lifelong dog lover Emmylou Harris established Bonaparte’s Retreat Dog Rescue in 2004. Located in Nashville, Bonaparte’s Retreat first rescued dogs deemed unadoptable from the Nashville Humane Association. Since those early days, our work and mission have evolved and we now focus on saving adoptable dogs whose time has run out at Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control.

We are dedicated to providing nurturing care for adoptable dogs when their allotted time at a shelter has elapsed. Our mission is to prevent these wonderful animals from being euthanized and to adopt them into permanent, loving homes.

Bonaparte's Retreat Dog Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Visit our website to learn about how you can help, support us, foster, volunteer, or adopt. www.bonapartesretreat.org

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption Events and Meet & Greet Events are held at various times throughout the year at many locations, including the Brentwood Petco at 210 Franklin Road or the Brentwood Petsmart on Moore's Lane. 10:00am to Noon. These are not regularly schedule, so please always check our Facebook page or website to confirm dates and times.

We also participate in several larger special adoption events throughout the year. To learn about our scheduled events, you can check our website (www.bonapartesretreat.org), our Facebook page, or email us at info@bonapartesretreat.org

Our Adoption Process...

Our mission is to insure that all our rescued dogs are adopted into loving and permanent homes. We screen potential adopters and do all we can to insure that you adopt the right dog for your home, family, and lifestyle. At Bonaparte’s Retreat Dog Rescue, our adoption process works like this:

Visit our website to access our online adoption application: http://www.bonapartesretreat.org/adoption.html

If your application is approved, we arrange for you to meet the dog. We then bring the dog to you for a home visit to make sure the adoption is a good fit.

If you make the decision to adopt, a three-week trial adoption period begins during which either you or we can change course and cancel the adoption decision. During these three weeks, we are committed to doing everything possible to assist you and your adopted dog with adjusting to a new home and living environment.

Our adoption fee is $125 (or $75 for special needs or senior dogs, a senior being any dog 7 years or older).

All our adoptable dogs have received vaccinations, been spayed or neutered, tested for heartworms and either treated or started on prevention, and are current on flea and tick prevention. Because of our process, we regret that we are unable to do out-of-state adoptions.
