Hank the Prankster's Info...
|Breed:||Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) Mix||Color:||White - With Brown Or Chocolate||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male|
This little terrier mix guy is full of energy and always has a trick up his sleeve. He LOVES to play and will run or walk with you for hours. Loves to run along with four wheelers and is a curious guy when out in the woods or fields. Loves kids and adults and gets along with all other dogs, although he would do better with older kids that were a little more steady on their feet because he has a habit of running into you when he's playing. He was dumped by his owner and was being fed by neighbors before taking up residence on our porch and booting the cat out of her spot in the rocker. He needs an active family that will keep him busy and his excess energy burned off. He is a total love-bug who only wants to be around those who feel the same way about him. He is 2 yrs old, neutered, crate trained, current on all vaccinations and heart worm preventative.
Rescue Group Info...
We are a small, Christian based rescue in rural West Tennessee. We believe it is our responsibility to be good stewards of our environment and by doing so, help the needy animals in our area. Unfortunately, the south tends to have an "it's just an animal" kind of attitude most of the time and this means that MANY wonderful companion animals find themselves the victims of neglect, abuse, and abandonment. We strive to rescue and rehome as many of these animals as we can. We maintain approximately 20-25 dogs in our program at any given time (the ones posted here are the ones that are ready to be adopted) and our goal is quality over quantity. We are not saving the MOST dogs of any other rescue but we believe the quality of the pets our adopters are receiving speaks for itself.
We have a "no-kill" policy and only euthanize a dog in our program if there is NO other option available to us (cases of extreme human or other dog aggression or illness/injury that is untreatable and is causing the dog severe pain). We do NOT euthanize an animal for reason of treatable illnesses such as heartworms, mange, etc.
We look forward to many more "saves" in the weeks, months, and years to come and enjoy every chance we get to make a difference. We also consider it our responsibility to educate our community on proper companion animal care, responsible pet ownership, and the positive ramifications of spaying and neutering pets. We have a no-cost weekend summer camp in the works for local children of low income families and look forward to our regularly scheduled talks with our local 4H Club chapters, our service projects with the Boy Scouts, and our other community events.
Since we are out of state, face-to-face meetings are not possible at this point. However, we will be more than happy to forward as many pictures and as much information on each animal as we can and are always BRUTALLY honest about our guys/gals. Any behavioral, temperamental, or health related issues are mentioned in the animals original bio and are then discussed in detail with potential adopters.
We require an adoption application which will be reviewed by our board and either approved or denied. We also require an adoption contract which states how the animal will be cared for once adopted (not left outside alone when nobody is home, never chained up, will not be given away, etc) Our adoption fee is $375 and that includes all vetting (spay/neuter, all vaccines, heart worm check, fecal exam, deworming, etc), current grooming, and transport to the adopters location. Once the application is approved and contract is signed, we will discuss transport arrangements with the adopter to find out which location and time is most convenient for them.
We are based in west Tennessee and strive to provide our rescues and fosters a better life by adopting them out into the northern states because they seem to have a better grasp of proper animal care and what loving a companion animal actually means. Our adoption transport has stops all along their route up the eastern seaboard, so if you're interested in one of our guys or gals and decide they're "the one", we can make it happen!
