Carleigh found herself at MAS through no fault of her own. Memphis Pets Alive posted her picture and Director Lisa moved quickly to ensure this REAL GOOD DOG was brought into the rescue.
Carleigh was quite shy in the shelter, but opened up once Volunteer Julie presented tasty treats. Once out of the shelter environment, Carleigh showed her true social sweet nature by greeting a pretty young girl in the parking lot. That brush tail would NOT stop wagging....a sure sign of her well balanced temperament.
Carleigh is less than a year old, but over six months. She is still getting used to the other dogs in her foster home, but is quickly settling in. She LOVES to sit in her foster mom's lap and posed like the supermodel she is for her pictures.
Carleigh is microchipped, up to date on her vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventives for heartworm and fleas. She is also spayed. Carleigh also walks well on lead.
If you are seeking a sweet, social companion, please come meet Carleigh.
The ideal home for this Real Good Dog will have a secure fenced yard. A solid history of excellent vet care for current or previous pets is required. Preference will be given to applicants who have specific breed experience.

We adopt dogs from Memphis Animal Shelter when we can. The shelter has an 83% euthanasia rate, one of the highest in the country. Unfortunately, any dog coming from Memphis Animal Shelter, and most other shelters for that matter, will have been in contact with contagious illness. Even though the dogs have been in foster care and appear to be in good health, they may become stressed when changing environments and exhibit signs and symptoms of illness. If you have other pets, they need to be up to date on vaccines before bringing a shelter dog into your home. We will take the adopted animal back, but we are not responsible for your other animal's vet care. We always disclose where the dogs have come from. Please ask for any information about the dogs and exercise due caution if you have immunocompromised animals.
