I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with dogs.
BABY is one of our famous Tunica County Tuxedo girls. A very popular pattern in a doggie in these parts.
Baby came to us when her family left her at a stop sign in town. They told her to sit and stay and they would be back directly to fetch her. And they didn't. She waited without food or water at that stop sign - just sitting and staying as she had been told - when a shop keeper called Ms. Sandy at Tunica Humane Society and told her what had happened. Baby was rescued but she was used to a HOME and family - even a family who left her so cruelly. She didn't do well in a shelter kennel. It was noisy and even though everyone loved on her she cried for her family. FOSTER Mommy Roberta came into the picture then and took her home with her. She learned quickly that Baby loves to ride in a car. She loves walking on a leash. She loves people and she loves to chase a ball as long as you will throw it to her. She loves toys and did we say she loves people? Say it again. BABY loves people. Any size. Any age.
What Baby doesn't like is big dogs. And she isn't nuts about small dogs either. She prefers a home of her own if possible. She would be best in a home without small children because she does jump up on people...although with some obedience training she could stop that. Look how well she learned SIT and STAY.
Foster Mom said she is a really great girl and she loves her so much. She sleeps on her little bed in the master bedroom and once she goes to bed she doesn't make a peep all night. She is totally housebroken and she is proud of it. Baby didn't care for being closed up in a kennel when she first came to her foster mom, but she has learned to do very very well in a kennel while Mom is at work all day or if she has to be out in the evening. Foster mom never had a problem leaving her out in the house all day though and said she was a little angel. BABY is only about 20 months old and she has a lot of energy. If you have a fenced back yard to throw that ball and you could take her jogging with you she would be in heaven. PLEASE give us a call and ask to meet Baby. We will have video of her in a few days to share.
If you are interested in adopting this dog please give us a call.
We know each of the animals entrusted to our care by name and we will be happy to tell you all about the personality and little quirks that make each animal so loved. Our adoption fee for a dog is $100 and that covers all shots and vetting and spay/neuter. Our animals are fully vetted before we send them off to their new family.

The Tunica Humane Society desires to improve the quality of life for all animals in Tunica County by aggressively pursuing a high quality, low cost spay-neuter program. We are dedicated to saving the lives of all animals who are endangered, neglected, abandoned or abused. It is our hearts desire to see Tunica become a "NO KILL" model community in a world where over 5 million dogs and cats are destroyed every year simply because they are considered "disposable".
"Lassie, Cleo, Rin Tin Tin, and Toto don't show up in a rescue shelter. We don't get the elegantly coiffed, classically beautiful, completely trained, or perfectly behaved dog or cat. We get leftovers. Animals that other people have incompetently bred, inadequately socialized, ineffectively "trained" and badly treated. Most rescue dogs and cats have had it. They've been pushed from one lousy situation to another. They've lived outside..in a crate, or in the basement. They're scared, depressed, and anxious. Some are angry. Some are sick. Some have given up.
But the Tunica Humane Society will not give up. We will never give up on an animal. We know that they are living beings, with a spirit, a heart, and feelings. Our animals are not commodities, things, or garbage. They are part of sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and respect as the next Westminister champion. So...please, please don't come to rescue a dog or cat in the hopes of getting a "bargain" or indeed of "getting" anything. Come to the shelter to give, to love, and to save a life and to mend your own spirit. For rescue will reward you in ways you never thought possible. We can promise you this...a rescue dog or cat will make you a better person." UNKNOWN
At the Tunica Humane Society, our goal is to do the best adoption possible...matching you with a pet that will become a lifelong member of your family. To ensure the best possible match between adopter and pet, we ask that you read and understand the information provided regarding our adoption policies and procedures. You will be asked to sign a legal contract when adopting your pet and you must pay an adoption fee/donation. The fees go directly to our rescue group to help us save more animals. Thank you for opening your heart and considering adopting a shelter dog. By making this commitment, you have not only found a friend for life...you have saved a life. If at any time you cannot keep the dog, you MUST return it to the Tunica Humane Society and not to another individual or shelter.
Our physical location is open by appointment only. We are a totally volunteer organization. We hold adoption events throughout the Memphis metro area each weekend and we post the events on our Facebook page.
We require a contract from each adopter and all adoptions are approved by the executive director, Sandy Williams. There is a $100 adoption donation. We know each of our animals by name and we can tell you all about them. We want the very best home for each animal and we want each adoption to be successful.
