  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)

Hi there, my name is Coconut. I'm a young girl with a huge personality and gorgeous blue eyes. I live in a foster home full of other dogs. I have two small senior canine friends who I'm really gentle with, and a fun young boxer pup that I love to romp around with. I love to play but I'm also content hanging out on the couch on movie night. My foster mom and dad constantly brag about my sweet personality and my quickness to learn new things. I learned how to sit in the first day in my foster home! I go into my crate without any fuss and I'm great about letting my foster parents know when its time to go outside. I love our walks around the neighborhood and I love going for car rides. I have one small thing that makes me different than other dogs, I'm partially deaf. That does not stop me in the least bit from having a wonderful life and it's a small thing that my foster parents say they rarely even notice. I'm patiently waiting for my forever home to come along and when they do I know we will have plenty of snuggle fests together.

​All of our pets start their journey in Memphis Tennessee where they remain in loving foster families until they are adopted.

The $300.00 adoption fee includes transport to the Nashville area.

Our adoption application can be found at http://www.aliverescuememphis.org/adoptionapplication/

Due to the extremely high volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that you submit an application immediately to start the adoption process. We try very hard to include all pertinent information in our bios. We are excited to help you find your new family member. However, ALIVE Rescue Memphis is operated 100% by volunteers. We want to spend our time saving dogs and assisting those adopters who have taken the time to complete an application. Thank you for understanding.

Breed selection is done in conjunction with two local vets and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well educated decision from well qualified staff.

About ALIVE Rescue Memphis - Nashville Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

ALIVE Rescue Memphis is a branch of ALIVE Rescue, a very successful foster based rescue that has been going strong in Chicago for over 6 years.
Besides adopting out homeless animals, we also do reach out days at children's hospitals and senior living programs. Providing pet owners with all the tools they need is also very important to us. We plan to do community pet days, like our branch in Chicago, and supply vaccines and microchip to low income pet owners. Our desire is to keep pets in homes, and out of the shelters,
Our mission statement is ALIVE Rescue Memphis is an animal rescue that protects the lives and the rights of animals. We believe every animal has the right to a well-balanced, socialized and fulfilled life. We take on the responsibility to save, rehabilitate and place abandoned, abused and stray animals. We believe strongly in education, and providing pet owners with the tools they need to keep their animals happy and healthy pets. ALIVE Rescue Memphis promotes sustainable living & cruelty free living by building awareness, appreciation and respect for all animals and the environment within our communities.
