My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Nyx came to us as a surrender with hydrocephalus. She was the runt of the litter and was having a hard time eating and surviving with her littermates. We took her in and we were able to get her to eat and our vet evaluated her - diagnosis confirmed of hydrocephalus but no treatment needed. She also has an under developed left eye that we aren't sure if she can see out of - if she can it's most likely just shadows.

Nyx is different. I don't know how to put it other than that (in the spirit of full disclosure). Her "wires are crossed". I think the hydrocephalus has affected her in ways that I will explain here:

She loves other dogs but doesn't know how to "play" with them. She will jump on them and bite them trying to get them to play with her. But when it's naptime or bedtime she will cuddle up and sleep on them. I think she enjoys their company but doesn't know how to effectively communicate with them.

She will let you pick her up on her terms. She doesn't bite or even try to bite you but will run when you are trying to get her to pick her up (she will come to you when she wants to).

She is a very sweet, lovely dog who is "special" in her own way and I know she will make someone very happy! Someone who can love something special and accept her just the way she is.

More about this rescue

We are a foster based rescue out of West Tennessee. A surfing term like "goofy foot" in West TN? We are California transplants! Goofy foot means surfing "with your right foot forward"....and we strive to always put the right foot forward in all we do!

We moved to TN from CA 16 years ago and immediately began "rescuing", although we didn't know that's what we were doing. We just knew that stray dogs kept finding us and we would do whatever was necessary to get them vetted and into wonderful, loving homes. We soon ran out of relatives and friends to beg to take a dog so we began branching out. We soon realized that even though we have a massive overpopulation problem here in the south, the eastern states actually have a bit of a shortage of dogs in a rescue we began adopting our Southern Beauties out to the northeast!

When you adopt a dog from Goofy Foot they come to you fully vetted. Fully vetted means they've been to the vet, had age appropriate shots (2 sets if the dog is a puppy), rabies vaccine if over 12 weeks, fecal, deworming, heartworm test if over 6 months, spay or neuter, grooming, flea/tick/heartworm prevention is current and any other vetting that the dog may require. Adoptions in the state of TN that do not require professional transportation are $275.

Goofy Foot Dog Rescue consists of a husband, wife and two daughters along with several wonderful fosters that offer their homes and hearts to these dogs as a temporary stop on their way to their forever homes. We are grateful for our fosters, supporters and adopters and we couldn't do this without all of you!
