Story
Harry and Eleanor?? Such SERIOUS names for a couple of goofy pups! We came from a somewhat sad and seriously MESSED up place but now we may be a little shy but we are definitely NOT SERIOUS :) We are JRT/Rat Terrier mixed siblings, each of us is cute and loving in our own right. Under 15# of absolute adorableness is who we are. We are both still a little nervous, I mean we came from a pretty horrific situation so know that we were not handled and loved on until the last month or so in our foster home... but we are learning so much and having a blast! We are great together but do not have to be adopted together. We will need at least another dog with us to show us the ropes and keep us company in our new family. We are good with everyone so that will be pretty easy :) Look one of us up and ADOPT...DON'T SHOP!!! SO MANY LIVES' DEPEND ON IT!! Local adoption fee is $350 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $600 (includes transport to your area, $50 temporary fuel fee will be included)

Story
Sweet Dixie was a adopted a couple of years ago to a very sweet lady in New Jersey. Sadly she unexpectedly passed away a couple of months ago and as she had no family, Dixie came back to us. She has adjusted very nicely but she needs to have a family of her own. Dixie was a street dog back in the day. She came to us with a litter of pups who were born under a trailer. She was a great mama and she was very thankful to have a stable home. She is spayed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, crate trained and ready for immediate transport. Wouldn't you love to give her a forever home! PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE LOCATED IN TENNESSEE AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MEET OUR PETS PRIOR TO ADOPTION! ADOPTION FEE $350
