My story

TOOT is a neutered male terrier mix. He is approximately 5 years old and weighs 20 pounds. Toot is in a playgroup with several other dogs, and he gets along best with mild-mannered female dogs. He will need an adult-only home as he can be a little spicy at times. Toot is not housetrained, but he wears his little man bands like a champion. Toot has been with us for several years. We rescued him along with 12 other dogs from a filthy mud pit. He’s not perfect and for that reason he’s still here 😢 He’s 95% sweet and 5% spicy and he wears his little diaper, so he hasn't had any interest, unfortunately. He is SUPER affectionate. Would do best in an adult only home with no other dogs or mild mannered female dogs. He doesn’t need walks if he has a fence. He’s content just being with his people. Anything outside of that makes him uneasy. He likes to stay in the closet or laundry basket if it storms. Sometimes, very rarely, he gets in a bad mood and you just have to redirect his attention and he completely forgets about his bad mood. Doesn’t like strangers coming into the house. So if you want an excuse to not have company, then you must adopt Toot 😜 Seriously though, he doesn’t like visitors, but can just be put in a different room if you have company. He will be their friend in 5 minutes though with a little turkey. Toot just need somebody to let him be their buddy, hang out at home, not force him into uncomfortable situations….he really is so sweet and just wants his own person to accept him for who he is. He has good house manners, doesn’t chew. He can also be crated if needed. We haven’t crated him in a long while, but he always did well when we did. If you are interested in adding one of our dogs to your home, please email us at and you will receive an auto-reply with a link to our online application. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative kept on monthly preventions, and microchipped. All of our animals are fostered in Tennessee, but we have transport available to the following areas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and New England. Our adoption process is first to email us and complete our online application via the link in the auto-reply. Once we receive the application, the foster parents of the dog will review it and contact you to conduct a phone interview within 72 hours if your home could potentially be a good fit. During the phone interview, we will ask many questions and also answer any questions that you may have. Once the phone interview is completed, provided both parties decide to move forward with the adoption, we will complete the home visit, and personal and vet reference checks. We can also do a video chat for you to meet them prior to adoption. We want this to be a positive experience for everyone involved. Our adoption fee is $350.00 and the transport fee is $165.00.
