Make magic happen by falling in love with the marvelous Marina! Marina is a beautiful, energetic, goofy and eager to please "luvabull" girl!  She is an American Staffordshire Terrier mix and at 9 months old and 55 pounds, she is all about living life to the fullest. She has three favorite activities: eating, playing and snuggling. She gets along great with other dogs and will happily run and play with them, although she can get overly excited and display an exuberant play style right out of the gate.  She enjoys fetching her toys and bringing them back for a little tug session. She is even learning to release on command, because she is always more than ready to fetch again. Marina enjoys running through the woods and splashing through the streams on her foster family's property.  She loves to ride shotgun in her foster dad’s side-by-side (ATV).  She is now housetrained and has learned to sit on command. This girl is highly motivated by treats and toys and, like most pups her age, Marina would benefit from some basic obedience training.  She is good on a leash but will pull hard if walking with other dogs that are ahead of her.  Marina is a sweetheart, and a very human-oriented baby who is happiest when she can be by your side.  When left to her own devices, Marina gets mischievous.  She needs experienced and understanding new owners and would probably do best in a home with a bully savvy owner, older children (10+) and a big fenced in yard allowing for plenty of playtime and daily exercise. She is curious of cats and likes to nuzzle in for a good sniff, so a dog-savvy cat would probably be best. Show her some love and affection, and she will show you her appreciation for years to come! Marina is house trained, crate trained, up to date on vaccinations, spayed and ready to meet her forever family.  Apply to adopt her today!

How To Adopt | Adoption Application | Pet Inquiry Form | Long Distance Adoptions

A.A.R.F. (All About Rescue and Fixin' Inc.) http://aarf-tn.com/ is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) no kill animal rescue organization located in the Upper Cumberland area of Tennessee. A.A.R.F. is comprised of unpaid volunteers and survives only on public donations. Adoption donations vary and are subject to change without notice. Thank you for thinking adoption first!

Prior to adoption, all canines and felines are spayed or neutered, have received their age appropriate vaccinations, have been de-wormed for common parasites, and have received treatment for prevention of fleas and ticks. All canines over the age of 6 months have been tested for heartworm. All canines are put on heartworm prevention as soon as possible - this means dogs as soon as they are tested negative. Puppies are put on prevention immediately. All felines, regardless of age, have been tested for feline leukemia and FIV. Each animal receives a health check by a licensed veterinarian prior to adoption. Anything else found will be treated by our organization prior to adoption.



About A.A.R.F. TN to VA Connection

About Our Rescue Group...

A.A.R.F. (All About Rescue and Fixin Inc.) is a 501(c)(3) no-kill animal rescue located in the Upper Cumberland Region of Middle Tennessee where animal control issues are out of control. A.A.R.F. is making a difference not only in the lives of these wonderful, abandoned and neglected animals, but also in our community. We encourage you to see the wonderful dogs and puppies that we have available for adoption – and the best part is that we have a local transportation company, P.E.T.S. LLC (http://www.petsllc.net/) right next door!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our rescue doesn't have an actual shelter in the Virginia area. Therefore it is not possible to meet our rescues in person prior to their adoption. Our dogs are brought up to their new families each week! The professional transport service is certified through the USDA. Our rescue dogs can be returned to us if things don't work out. We want each adoption to be for a forever home, so we try very hard to make sure it's the right match! Video conference meetings available and encouraged.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with the submittal of an Adoption Application online and a phone interview with one of our adoption coordinators. To be sure the long distance adoption is the right match for both the dog and family, we offer virtual video conference meeting for your new family member. Following verification and approval of your adoption application, we will arrange a professional transport of our new family member to your area. Our adoption donations are listed on each dog's profile. Professional transportation for your new family member is $150 or less depending on delivery location. We require a signed contract, verification of home address and vet reference.
