Lily's Story...

Lily is a purebred Kemmer feist. (info here: She was seized as a cruelty case, so she was bit shy at first, but she quickly warmed up and became a happy, loving dog in her foster home. Lily wieghs about 15 lbs and is tall and lean for her size. She is playful with dogs her own age, but she's laid back and gentle with people and other dogs. She shows no interest in cats so far. Lily appears to be housebroken, although she's submissive around some men and does do a small bit of submissive peeing when frightened. She's quite good at climbing out of pens under 6 feet, so should be walked on a leash or kept in a yard with a tall fence. She is trained to use a dog door. She's a wonderful, loving girl. Lily prefers older children and adults, but is also fine with smaller children, but finds some of them frightening. 

Scroll to bottom for contact information or call ARF at (877) ARF-JCNC. For the $70 adoption fee, this animal has received rabies shot and heartworm test if old enough. It has also received puppy shot, worming, and spay/ neuter--and sometimes a considerable investment of services and treatments.

Because of this animal's uncertain history, we assume he or she is not housebroken unless we have stated otherwise. However, most dogs are trainable and eager to please. ARF will happily advise prospective owners about crate training and the latest housebreaking tools.

We set up at our adoption location on 50 Railroad Ave., Sylva, NC every Saturday from 1-3 PM (sometimes earlier or later if the weather is nice). You can also view animals by making an appointment with the foster parent. Get approximate directions from your location.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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