Story
Meet Sasha, Sasha was a rescue from under a house in Hartsville Tn. She had been roaming the streets and being fed by multiple people until she decided to have her 8 puppies under a porch. Sasha was one of the lucky ones and was taken into foster and was a wonderful mother. She was very cautious in the beginning protecting her babies. Sasha loves to play but would do best in a home where the other dogs are not overpowering to her. She will let the other dog know when she has had enough. She likes to take walks and does well on a leash. She loves her toys and loves to eat. Sasha would be best with older children. She might be a little shy at first but warms up quickly. She loves to get in your lap and just be loved on. If you are a looking for a companion to walk with and just hang out with meet Sasha. I have a lot of video and would be glad to send it so you can see her. She seems to be more comfortable with women but is fine with the foster’s husband but it took a little bit. Sasha is up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and on preventions for heart worm and flea and tick and is micro chipped. She is spayed and approximately 50 lbs and 3 years old. Sasha is currently located in Tennessee and the adoption fee is $150. Transportation may be available to out of state adopters for an additional cost depending on the area. The first step in our process is submitting the application. We are happy to set up a meet and greet once an application has been approved. If you would like to adopt Sasha please fill out our online adoption application at http://safehaventn.com/ .

ADOPTION FEE REDUCED with APPROVED APPLICATION. www.safehaventn.com Banjo is a handsome 4-year-old fellow who found himself on death row. Thanks to a foster we were able to pull him and get him safe. He is heartworm negative, neutered, micro chipped and dog friendly. Cats unknown. He is about 55 lbs. We will require a physically 6' fenced yard. He likes toys and acts like a puppy at times. He would be best in a home with older children (12+) because he is still working on some manners and may be a little much for smaller children. He is a sweet boy just looking for a family to call his own. Please give this guy a chance, he won't disappoint you! If you think you can be that family for Banjo, please fill out our adoption application on our website at www.safehaventn.com . We are happy to set up a meet and greet for the approved application.

Story
ADOPTION FEE WAIVED with APPROVED APPLICATION. www.safehaventn.com Where do I start with Mr. Frankie Hudson? Ok he is super cute and that face will get you every time, trust me! If you are a one dog only type of family who wants a affectionate little dynamo who will bring you laughter and joy, this is your guy! Frankie is in an indoor / outdoor kennel and is potty trained with the doggy door to go in and out. He LOVES toys. Have no idea what his mix is, if I had to guess I would say some frenchie and pocket pittie .. but that is pure speculation. I can tell you he is a velcro dog and will literally be underfoot because he loves just that unconditionally. We do require a physically fenced yard. He is about 35-*40 lbs and sturdy. Frankie would do best currently as the only dog. He is not dog aggressive by any means, but has a little quirk that we are working on that other dogs may not enjoy on the daily, so we would feel most comfortable as placing him as the only dog in the home. I promise you this dog has so much love to give the right family. He is neutered, heartworm negative, current on shots and preventions. If you think you can be that family for Frankie Hudson, please fill out our adoption application on our website at www.safehaventn.com . We are happy to set up a meet and greet for the approved application. His adoption fee is waived and he is being fostered in Cookeville, TN. Out of state adoptions are considered on a case by case basis depending on the dog.

Chico

Hound (Unknown Type) Black Mouth Cur

Male, 2 yrs 2 mos

Story
Chico came to us from a desperate situation with his sister Charley and was skin and bones. He has doubled his weight in the last month or so and now is ready to find his forever home. Chico is very shy and timid until he gets to know you, then you will get his wiggle butt. His ideal home will be calm and with another dog and understanding dog parents who will let him decompress and come out of his shell. He will be an absolute faithful companion and he should bear no responsibility for the crappy hand he was dealt by previous crappy owners. He has overcome so much since he has joined us, we just know what a great dog he is and know he will make the perfect companion dog for the right person. You must have a physically fenced yard and kids over 12 would be preferred. He was very much outside of his comfort zone in the studio and you can see that in his pictures, but I have also uploaded a little video so you see more of the Chico that we see on the daily. Please open your home and heart to this sweet boy. He is fully vetted, a year old, heart worm negative and about 55 lbs currently. He uses the doggy door to go out when he needs to go outside. If you meet our criteria and would like to add Chico to your family, please fill out our adoption application on our website at www.safehaventn.com . We are happy to set up a meet and greet for the approved application. His adoption fee is $150.00 and he is being fostered in Cookeville, TN. You must be able to come to Tennessee to pick up if your application is approved.

Story
ADOPTION FEE WAIVED with APPROVED APPLICATION. www.safehaventn.com Who is looking for a special boy or two! We have a pair of brothers who are deaf and vision impaired. So here is their info, born 1/8/23 .. we were told they are pit / great dane mixes. Kingsley is deaf but does appear to have some vision at this time. He likes to stick close to you and he tends to try and walk between my legs. Very loving and good with other dogs. No kids under 12 please, we are still working on manners and potty training. He is fully vetted, on preventions and will be chipped. He will require a physically fenced yard for his safety ... no exceptions. We expect he will be large sized when full grown. It is very hard to get a good picture of him, so that is why there is only one and then I tried to get a video of them as well. If I get any other good pictures, I will add them to the profile. Please don't apply for this pup out of sympathy .. he doesn't know that he is "special" .. he wants a family who can provide him the care, love and training that he will need going forward. This will require work and effort on the part of his family, but these kinds of dogs can make the best family members, and we hope there is a family (or two), who will give these brothers a chance to have their happy ever after. Kingsley's adoption fee is waived and he is located in Cookeville, TN. If you think you are the right family for him (and or his brother Boone), please fill out the application on our website www.safehaventn.com. This dog is not available for transport, you would need to come to TN to pick him up.
