My story

Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet.

Posted 9/15/15, and pictures updated 5/4/16.  While working on a rescue project, Truffles and her sister Capri were found at a dumpster at Lake Palestine on 9/3/15 in route to our rescue location.  Both came running up, are somewhat good on a leash, but need more practice, are very sweet, and love to be pet.  They are crate trained, love to play with the other dogs, and they are social with people, so they did have an owner.  We had them at an adoption event in September 2015, and they let a lot of children pet them.  We were thinking possible Beagle mix for the breed at first until the Cocker Spaniel mix was suggested.  There was also the suggestion of Rottweiler in looking at Capri.  Both girls have stub tails and underbites.

9/17/20 UPDATE:  Capri was adopted in 2016, and Truffles has shown herself over the years to be skittish of new people that come to our property.  Over time with giving treats, a few people have been able to pet her, so an adopter would have to know how to work with her.  She is good with our other dogs, except other dominant female dogs.  She is still crate trained, and comes up to me wagging her stub for attention.

Weight:     28.2 - 9/11/15; 52.8 - 5/29/16

Go meet their pets

It depends on who has the pet. We don't advertise our address to keep people from dumping animals on our road anymore than they usually do, especially since this is also where we live. I like to visit with a person on the phone first before letting them come meet the pet.

More about this rescue

This is a small animal rescue for cats and dogs. I have several foster homes in various areas, and I also do courtesy postings for people who need help finding a home for their pet, which is about 80% successful. The pet doesn't have to enter a rescue or shelter and the owner is contacted, so they decide who their pet goes to. If a person can't send me pictures, and they don't live too far away, I will go and videotape the pet myself to place pictures on the internet, or have a volunteer get the pictures. There have been a few pets that haven't been able to find a home through this service, but it depends on what the pet is and who is looking on the internet. When we have space available we take transfers from a local kill animal shelter. We also step in and help people who find themselves with multiple animals and no way to pay to get them fixed. Usually I will get all the females fixed to get their circumstances under control, and in some cases I will also help with donated food when I have extra. If they want to find homes for some of the many pets they have accumulated, then I will place their pictures on the internet for them. We don't euthanize unless a pet is seriously ill.
