Harper's Story...
**Harper is being fostered in Memphis, TN but for the right family we will meet halfway or possibly find Harper a ride to Nashville**

We are proud to introduce miss Harper.

We met Harper in March at the Lauderdale County Animal Control Facility in Ripley, TN. Ripley is about at hour and a half from Memphis in the middle of nowhere. It's a small facility with few adoptions and a place very near and dear to our hearts. We love to visit Ripley when we have available fosters. On this particular day we had a mini van full of pups and were getting ready to leave when one of our favorite workers asked if we could take a mom and puppies that were found in a field. Our foster homes were maxed out with the dogs already in our car, but we told him we'd meet her and try to network her. He opened a door to a hidden room and out walks Harper and her 2 black lab looking baby boys. We can't help but think someone sold her blond puppies and dumped her and the remaining two. Harper immediately came up and sat at our feet and looked up at us wither her big brown eyes. We knew we had to bring her and her little boys home. It seems we always find the most amazing dogs at Ripley, and this trip was no different.

Harper was a great mom, sweet and playful with her littles. When they were 8 weeks old, they went onto separate foster homes and were quickly adopted. Sadly, Harper was heartworm positive so getting her ready for adoption took a little longer. Harper just completed a full heartworm treatment and is finally ready for the forever home she deserves.

Harper is quite possibly one of the most perfect dogs to ever enter our rescue. She is about 45 lbs and 1.5 years old. She is incredibly smart and loving. She knows, sit, shake, high five and speak. Harper is house trained and does not have to be kenneled while you leave the house- she can be trusted to roam free. She is pretty calm over all... except when she sees a squirrel or bird in her yard. She doesn't usually jump on people, and is very gentle. Harper loves her K9 foster siblings and snuggling on the couch. She is always happy to see us after a long day at work and loves when friends and family come over because she knows she gets extra attention.

Like goldens and labs Harper does shed and will require grooming every few months. She has been twice since being with us and is always a good girl for the groomer. Harper is spayed, microchipped, has had her annual shots/dewormer, and has completed heartworm prevention and is current on advantage multi.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Harper, a Nashville Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever for sale in Nashville, or seeking a Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Nashville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Nashville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Nashville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Nashville paves the way for another one to be saved.
