Facts about Zeppelin

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
ZEPPELIN loves to be up in the air and has amazing jumping skills! This sweet dog was picked up by Animal Control in Troy in NW TN as a major cold front brought single digit temperatures to TN. Nobody claimed this gorgeous boy, so he was rescued in order to save his life. His foster described him on that day as a very skinny icicle. He is now safe and warm in his foster home where he is crate and house trained and where he has shown no aggression toward his fellow foster dogs. It may be no surprise that he has some food guarding issues, but with regular meals and his foster working on this behavior, he is improving. His foster says that he is an extremely sweet, very athletic dog. He loves and does well with children, but we recommend a home with older children because of his energy level. He would do best with a family who has an active lifestyle. Zeppelin is 2 years old and weighs 49 pounds. He has been vetted, vaccinated and neutered. He tested negative for heartworm. He will be microchipped prior to adoption. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Zeppelin if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501c3 non-profit, all-volunteer rescue to cover at least part of the cost of the veterinary care this dog has received.

Our Adoption Process...

Until the end of 2017, our adoption fee has been lowered to $95. This fee helps to cover part of the cost of basic veterinary care, age-appropriate vaccinations, heartworm and fecal tests, spay or neuter and microchip. If a dog has required medical care above and beyond the norm, the adoption fee could be higher. Fees are sometimes lower for certain dogs, so please inquire. If we are unable to arrange for volunteer transport for adoptions outside our area, it may be necessary for us to arrange for paid transport at a cost of approximately $140. Completion of an adoption application as well as a veterinarian reference is required. Our online adoption application can be found at We also have a paper application which you can obtain by emailing Thanks for your interest in adopting a Diamonds Dog!
