Maggie's Story...
Maggie's being adopted! 3.8.11. Her new name is Kona!
Meet Maggie! She's a precious & vivacious little nugget of love. Weighing in at 10lb & being 12 week old, this little black & tan mix is expected to be a small-to-medium adult pup. The vet said she is possibly shepherd/lab & will max out at 40-45 lbs, however even this weight seems a little high since she's only gained 5 lbs from 8 weeks old to present.

We have taken a survey on her breed via our facebook page & the consensus is she is a heeler/shepherd/chihuahua mix. I definitely believe the chihuahua, or jack russell or border collie if you told me either of them, because of her temperament & smarts. While Maggie is very energetic, she naps frequently after her romps through the house, either playing with us or the dogs here.

Maggie has a beautiful short-hair, black coat with her face & legs having heather beige (with black) and the insides of her ears & her bootie being tan. It seems her ears get closer to standing up & being pointy every day. If she continues as she is, my guess is she will look like a 30-35 lbs Manchester Terrier with heather beige instead of red highlight area. Awesome! [but i could be wrong]

It's hard to believe this tiny girl was found wandering down a lonely road in the Sewanee Mountains Jan 14th. A lovely couple saw her, bundled her up, and took her home to safety. She received her first round of shots & wormer the following Monday from their vet where Maggie was given a clean bill of health. Maggie has been given bordetella, a 2nd round of wormer, and will be spayed once old enough (minimum 12-14 weeks) as well as receiving her rabies shot.

Despite her small stature, she is quite the little spitfire. Maggie will gnaw on a bone that is almost as large as her. She will romp & play around the room & bark at whatever toy or bone has her attention. Then she will nap. Upon waking up, we immediately take her out to potty & she comes inside to do the routine all over again. During the night, she wakes us up to go potty once, around 3am, by whimpering and/or barking from her kennel. She has already learned to go into her kennel with the coaxing of a small treat.

Maggie is great with adult dogs as well as puppies. She has lived with large-breed foster dogs so far as well as one small-breed dog. She's doing great with pottying outdoors; when taken out regularly, her indoor accidents are a minimum. She's even figured out the doggie door & will go outside to potty all by herself, which is a huge step for such a little one.

Maggie will be great with kids if they are not averse to sharp puppy teeth.

All Camp Chaos dogs are indoor dogs with outdoor privileges. There are no exceptions. Thank you for understanding.

Adoption fee is $90. Thank you for wanting to share your home with one of our rescued pups!

If you are a parent adopting for your children, please remember we do pick the best home for our pups. If there are 2 applications that come in at the same time, for example, and one will be a better fit, that is the one we choose. Many parents pump up their children about getting a specific puppy, and it can be very sad for the child if the particular puppy isn't a good fit unbeknownst to them. We put this disclaimer here because a couple of parents have been upset when a home that used doggy daycare & had a fenced in yard was chosen over crate-all-day without a backyard. Peace.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maggie, a Nashville Australian Cattle Dog/Chihuahua puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog/Chihuahua for sale in Nashville, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog/Chihuahua puppy 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 Australian Cattle Dog/Chihuahua breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Nashville paves the way for another one to be saved.
