Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Meet Penelope, a 7.9 pound Maltipoo born around 08/20/2023.  Penelope’s journey began on the south side of town where she was found severely matted and in need of urgent care. Thanks to the loving hands at the vet, she underwent a gentle sedation to remove the mats and start her on the path to recovery. Sadly, no one came forward to claim this sweet girl, but now she’s found happiness and safety. Despite her rough start, Penelope is a bundle of joy. She’s incredibly playful, adores everyone she meets, and gets along famously with all her furry friends. Her antics are a constant source of amusement, especially her acrobatic jumps that showcase her impressive agility—she’ll leap into your arms with boundless enthusiasm! Penelope is still perfecting her potty training, but her loving nature and spirited personality make every day a delightful adventure. She’s yet to meet a stranger and greets each new friend with a wagging tail and a loving heart. If you’re looking to add a ray of sunshine to your family, Penelope is ready to fill your home with laughter and love. Apply to adopt her at www.adoggie4you.org. Her adoption fee is $350, and she’s eager to find her forever home with a family who will cherish her playful spirit and affectionate nature. This dog is currently in Texas; however, it can be transported to Washington, Portland (Oregon), Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago, Des Moines, Omaha, Cincinnati, Lexington KY or all along the East Coast. If transported, there is an additional transport fee of $225. We do not transport to Rhode Island or Massachusetts due to their regulations. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 12, 2024, 1:09 am

Story
Meet Loki! He was adopted from us as a puppy and just returned because one of the kids developed allergies. He’s a super playful, happy guy who loves to run around with other dogs and then sit in your lap for some pets. He’s half pug, half maltese and has a wiry mixed type hair. Loki is 10 months old and fully grown at 19 pounds. He seems to be house trained. He’d love to find a forever home soon!IMPORTANT: Please read all below, especially if you live outside of Texas, which is where our rescue is located.Apply to adopt on our website: https://www.charmingpetrescue.org/adoptAll of our animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots.ALL of our animals are located in Boerne, TX, but transport after adoption is available to other states for a $300 fee for dogs or an additional fee varying by location for cats. If you are seeing our pets posted in your state, that's because you live near a transport stop, they are not currently at that location. Petfinder lists our pets as 'Out of Town' pets at other locations, and Adopt-a-Pet lists our location as a Transport stop. Those are currently the only options they offer to make this clear, so we put this description we've put at the bottom to explain it. You can read more about transport here: www.charmingpetrescue.org/transportWe understand transport is not an option for everyone, but we offer it at the cost we pay the transport company for those who wish to adopt from us.July 13, 2024, 5:19 am

Story
LOCAL TN ADOPTION ONLY. let me tell you about Button...she is a sweet little lap dog. That should be the end of the story, but it's not. She is 9.0 years old and was surrendered to a shelter by her owner. Reason is unknown. Our rescue pulled her and she has been in a my home as a foster for 6 months. At this stage of her life, Button is looking to run the show, at least in terms of getting her needs met. She is not demanding. She will be every bit as sweet to you as you are to her. She loves to sit on your lap and be petted. However, she is not here for your shenanigans and will not participate in your tomfoolery. Mess with her feet or her butt and she will give you a warning snap. One is all you get. If you don't aggravate her, you'll never see her dark side. She was groomed recently (with a muzzle) and attempted to bite nearly the entire time. But once she was finished, and the muzzle came off, she was sweet as could be instantly. She does not hold a grudge. Senior dog Adoption Fee of $112.50 Includes Age-Appropriate Vaccinations (DA2PPV, Bordetella, Rabies), Deworming, Spay/Neuter, Microchip, Flea, Tick and Heartworm Treatment and Prevention, and Sheltering. Adult Dogs are Heartworm Tested and treated if necessary. All dogs are given monthly heartworm, flea and tick preventative.LOCATED IN CROSSVILLE, CUMBERLAND COUNTY, TN.

Story
Meet Sweeney, a bundle of joy wrapped in a puppy's body. He's the embodiment of sweetness, always ready to greet you with a wagging tail and a friendly bark. His curiosity knows no bounds, making every day an adventure. Sweeney's goofy antics will have you laughing, while his gentle nature will warm your heart. He's the perfect cuddle buddy, always mellow and ready for a snuggle. A dog that was in the home he was in before he came to us bit him on the head when he was born and because of this sometimes he has a little skip in his step but otherwise he is very healthy, happy and just perfect. His funny little walk is endearing, a testament to his brave and loyal spirit. Sweeney is more than just a pet; he's a companion, a friend, a source of endless laughter and love. Adopt Sweeney and bring a ray of sunshine into your life. If you'd like to add Sweeney to your family please fill out our online application at www.goofyfootrescue.org
