Journey's Story...
Journey is a wonderful little guy. He came from the home of a hoarder and ended up on the run for 44 days before being found. He was very skinny, malnourished and covered in ticks. He tested Negative for heart worms but tested positive for Lyme Disease as well as a heart murmur. He received treatment for Lyme and is doing very well. The heart murmur is moderate at a grade 3 and doesn't cause him any health issues. It is thought to have developed from the horrible plaque build up on his teeth. He has had a complete dental and he does allow us to brush his teeth with an electric tooth brush, which we do weekly.

Journey has adapted very well to his foster home. He is potty trained and gets along well with other dogs as well as children and new adults. He is not aggressive and has not bitten us or any of our other 8 dogs, but he will not tolerate being bullied. If you have a dominate dog at home, that likes to push buttons, then Journey may not be a good match, but not to worry, we have other dogs that may fit into that environment, so keep looking through our available dogs!

Journey is a "home body" and likes to stay inside and be with his human(s) as much as possible. When we move, he moves, if we get up, he gets up. Even while outside, he will generally stay by us and will follow us around the yard constantly looking up to see what we are doing. He is very loyal. He does like to go outside and chase after a ball or run with the other dogs in his foster home but not without his person. If we go in, he goes in. He isn't much of a barker but will let you know when he hears or sees something "strange."

He loves feeding time as well as treat time. We are working on the "sit" and "off" command as he gets very excited. He does very well walking on leash but because of his excitable nature must wear a "no slip" or Martingale harness at all times while outside of the house or enclosed backyard.

Overall, Journey would make a wonderful addition to just about anyone's home. Journey is fostered in Huntsville, AL and is a courtesy listing for a fellow rescuer. To complete an application, please email

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Journey, a Knoxville Chinese Crested dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chinese Crested for sale in Knoxville, or seeking a Chinese Crested dog from a breeder in Knoxville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Knoxville 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 Knoxville 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 Chinese Crested breeders who help with Chinese Crested rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Knoxville paves the way for another one to be saved.
