Wandering up to a vet tech's front porch was the smartest thing our medium-size 3 year old Rottweiler mix, Junebug, could have done. She was skin-and-bones thin, had a yeast infection, and was very shy...but something directed her to the right place. After more than a week of feeding Junebug and waiting for her family to answer ads in the Lost/Found columns, the tech transferred Junebug to A.A.R.F.'s rehoming program. Boarding in a private kennel gave Junebug a safe place to recover, receive veterinary treatment and begin to socialize with people.
She loves to climb on the sofa with visitors or sit on the floor and lean against someone who's willing to pet her. Still a bit leary of men, she is fine with women. She continues to crouch slightly when crossing the floor in a home but is a bit more confident outside. She is house- and crate-trained.
Junebug has been spayed and dewormed, is heartworm negative and up to date on vaccinations, and has been microchipped. She is on monthly preventatives for fleas and most internal parasites.
We feel strongly that gentle obedience training and experience would help Junebug blossom and give her the confidence to greet men without showing fear and meet other dogs without becoming aggressive. Consequently, we are looking for an adopter who is experienced with this breed and willing to show patience and love while teaching this beautiful Rottweiller mix that the world is not so bad. NO DOGS, NO CATS, NO KIDS, please.

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.

Rescue Group Info...
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 (as seen on Animal Planet’s “Last Chance Highway”) right next door!
Our rescue doesn't have an actual shelter in the New England 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 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 range from $200-$300 depending on circumstances of the rescue dog, age, breed, etc. Professional transportation for your new family member is $150. We require a signed contract, driver's license and vet reference.
