Story
4 yr old spayed German shepherd. 62#, adopted from animal control, vet told owner that she needed to treat her ears, owner said she would have to come back on payday… never saw her again. Cadence was later taken back to AC for euthanasia. Tech at AC couldn’t do it because cadence is so sweet… so they sent her to our clinic and dr evaluated her ears. She has suffered chronic untreated ear infections for who knows how long.. ear canals are cauliflowers and cadence will have to have ear exams abt every 6-8 weeks. We packed them w a two week treatment last week. Her ears are very sensitive, and she had to be sedated to treat them. She is a precious girl and doing well with her foster just after one day!Available dogs are met by pre-approved adopters ONLY after a match is made.The application is the first step.

Story
Hi my name is Bear. I'm a big guy at 91 lbs but that means I have an extra big heart. I love everyone but my size can be a little scary, especially to cats. I may or may not like to mix it up with horses. I take my job of patrolling my property pretty seriously. Now since I came in as a stray I was kind of patrolling someone else's property but that's just a technical little detail. While I am 7 years old I really haven't had much training since I've been left on my own for the most of my life. What I am really hoping for is a family that wants me to live inside with them as part of their every day life. I'm not too old to learn and I love people. Maybe no horses (unless you want to work on training) or cats though. Just a family is all I need. Come meet me...Adopt from MCASAll of our dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm tested (and treated if positive), microchipped, and current on all vaccinations.We are open 7 days a week 12pm to 5pm for adoptions, no appointment necessary!Adoption Center: 931-375-1402If you would like more information about this dog, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Kim, at kraffauf@gmail.com

Story
Hi everyone! This is Nova. She is 2 years old, spayed and microchipped. She is also crate, obedience, house and E-collar trained. She is a very special girl with a big personality! She loves to play with her ball and will do so for hours on end! She also loves soft and squeaky toys but will destroy them in T-2 seconds with no regrets! She may take a little time to trust you and feel comfortable with you but once she does...her love is endless! She is a big cuddler for those of you who love to cuddle your fur babies. She will do best in a home where she is the only fur baby as she loves to have all your attention. She is looking for a home where she can be loved and treated like the queen she is. She needs an active companion. She will protect you and your home so you will always feel safe with her nearby. If you love German Shepherd dogs, she is as gorgeous as they come (she posed for the first picture, as you can tell). Her heart is big just like her paws.

Story
Ruger is a 6.5 year old pure bred German Shepherd (born April 2017) and is such a sweet and energetic boy. who is good with kids, likes playing with other dogs, and LOVES playing fetch. He had a intussusception as a puppy and has had 16” removed from his intestines/colon. Due to this he will always be very thin and his bowel movements later in the day can be looser than in the morning. He has not had any more intestinal “twists” or issues since his surgery as a puppy. It has been a long hard decision to re-home him but he does not get as much exercise and attention that he needs from his growing family and they feel he is suffering more emotionally from this.  They would love to see him go to someone/ a family that will Love him Big and be sensitive to his past intestinal intussusception (example: giving him decent / non inflammatory food) and to also be active with him and be able to play fetch with him (his absolute favorite).  They believe he would do great with someone who has a very large backyard or acreage. He deserves more and Critter Cavalry Rescue has promised to help find him a good family or person to give him their utmost love and attention.  If you are interested in this healthy and happy dog please contact us at ccrtennessee@gmail.com ADOPTION FEE REQUIRED.

Story
My name is Bella Mia and as you can see, I am a beautiful golden girl that smiles and welcomes everyone I meet with an open heart of friendship.  I am a German Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix that is obviously going to be large and just bigger to love.  They say I was born around February 11, 2023 and for sure I am still very much a puppy even though I weigh 76 pounds.  They whisper behind my back and say that “she is a very smart girl” and that makes me want to be even smarter.  I try to keep my sweet personality showing out there 24/7 even though I am competing for attention from my other large and in charge siblings.  I am learning things but my foster family is busy and they are just maintaining good care for me and my large siblings.  I have energy to burn and I need a fenced yard to run in and someone that will focus on teaching me.  I need a loving and training oriented family who loves to bring a dog from A to Z status.  I survived a very tough start in life and am one of 12 siblings.  Only six of us survived.  I like fun, lots of activity and the hustle and bustle of family.  I need a fenced yard that is 6 ft. tall and it would be best to have me with children who are over 8 years of age because of my large exuberant size.  I am a well-rounded girl that will make your home much more Fun and loving.  If you are interested in making me a part of your life, please contact Critter Cavalry Rescue at ccrtennessee@gmail.com PLEASE NOTE:   Our dogs and cats are fostered in Tennessee and can transport weekly up to the Northeast region.  Request an application and learn more about Critter Cavalry at https://www.crittercavalry.com/adoption.April 12, 2024, 8:14 am

He’s one healthy lover of a dog.

Story
Active Axel is a handsome golden male German Shepherd/ Great Pyrenees mix who was born on February 11th, 2023 and is still a puppy in every way. He is one of six siblings that survived from a litter of 12. Our guy Axel weighs approximately 90 lbs, and is very GSD smart loving to be next to his humans.  This huge puppy is full of energy and he will fit perfectly in a home where there is a lot of activity, a fenced yard and people who love the BIG DOGS! He really likes walking, hiking, and just a ton of fun with activity. He also loves water and treats the water trough as his own personal spa. We recommend a home with a fence that is a minimum of 5 feet tall.   We do not suggest he go to a home with small children, or farm animals simply because he has no experience with them.  He hangs with his siblings and does well playing with them and also just enjoying their company.  He does need to eat separately for dinner as he protects his food from the other dogs due to early starvation. Handsome Axel is fully vetted, neutered and microchipped and he is kennel and crate trained for quiet time.  This boy needs some time and attention from a caring and dog savvy owner.  He would love to cuddle with you and be your adored companion.  He has such potential…..such love and such a need to grow and evolve into a fine companion in life.  Please email us at ccrtennessee@gmail.com if you are interested in this big baby!  ADOPTION FEE REQUIRED.

Story
Look at this gorgeous German Shepherd mix boy named Trent and don’t take your eyes off of him because he is a WINNER!  This boy is only 7 months old and weighs 37 pounds and was found with his brother and sister as abandoned pups in a very rural area right on a highway.  They were in great danger.  Trent is around children, other dogs and would be fine with cats as well.  This boy is shy and has not had many worldly experiences up till now.  If you have looked for a special German Shepherd to rescue then this boy is the one to help!  He will be a 75 pound boy when fully grown and we feel he is 80% Shepherd if not 100%.  We just don’t know for sure. This boy is not housebroken…never been inside to have the chance…he is loving…he is handsome and calm and has all the potential in the world to be a wonderful family companion. Do you want to rescue a dog?   Well Trent most certainly needs someone to finish the task that Critter Cavalry Rescue started.  Please email us at ccrtennessee@gmail.com PLEASE NOTE:   Our dogs and cats are fostered in Tennessee and can transport weekly up to the Northeast region.  Request an application and learn more about Critter Cavalry at https://www.crittercavalry.com/adoption.April 12, 2024, 8:14 am
