Story
Macy is located in TEXAS. There are not enough homes for all the unwanted dogs down there, so she is willing to relocate for a good, loving, forever home. Macy looks like a rat terrier. We are guessing she is around 3 years of age and she weighs 15 pounds. As expected, she was a bit leery of the other dogs at first but now she is just as happy and playful as she can be. Macy is very affectionate and loves attention and pets. She likes to sit next to you on the couch and will grumble at the other dogs to keep them away so she can have all the attention. This is a bad habit and should not be encouraged. Macy is crate-trained and well-behaved in the house. She is doing well with housetraining but may need more work. Because Macy is small, she must be protected from rough treatment by children or big dogs that could hurt her. She must also be protected from raptors and other outdoor predators. Macy must be an inside dog and a loved member of the family. To avoid injury, she will need steps to get on and off the couch and other furniture. Macy must be walked on a leash and would like a secure, fenced yard to run and play. Macy is healthy. She is spayed and tattooed, fully vaccinated (DAPPvL2, Bordatella, rabies), and microchipped. She is negative for heartworms and receives monthly heartworm and flea prevention. ALL transport costs are included in the adoption fee with delivery to Hagerstown MD or Quicksburg VA. Macy is currently located in Texas and cannot be transported until after she is adopted. Please send an email to 2manydogstx@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting this little sweet girl.

Story
Sweet little Reba was a street dog. No idea how long she had been on the streets but she just went house to house begging for food until one day a very nice woman got her into the car and brought her to us. Her owners never claimed her so now she is ready for adoption. She is in very good health and sweet as can be. She loves to play with my 3 year old granddaughter so if you have children, she will love that! She is spayed, fully vaccinated, heart worm negative, microchipped and crate trained. Ready for immediate transport. These dogs are very high energy and she loves to do zoomies so a fenced yard is preferred. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE LOCATDED IN TENNESSEE AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MEET OUR PETS PRIOR TO ADOPTION! ADOPTION FEE $700

Story
Lita is located in TEXAS. There are not enough homes for all the unwanted dogs down there, so she is willing to relocate for a good, loving, forever home. We know that Lita is a wire-haired Jack Russell Terrier mix. She is just over 1 year of age and she weighs 21 pounds. Lita also has an adorable head tilt. She is sweet, active, and playful. She loves to be cuddled and petted. At first, Lita was terrified of the other dogs, but now she loves to run and play with all of the other dogs. Lita does like to chase cats. Lita is a JRT, she is very smart, and she will jump a 4'-5' fence or gate to go chase a squirrel or cat. She must have a secure 6' fence to prevent escape. We put a training collar on her for about a week and she quickly learned to stay in the yard and to come when called. Lita is crate-trained and will run and get in her crate when it is time to do so. She obviously received no training from the person who previously had her, but she is very smart and learns quickly. Lita may need more work with housetraining and her house manners have gotten much better - she no longer chews on things that she is not supposed to. Lita must be in the house as a loved member of the family. She must be walked on a leash and must have a secure, 6-foot-tall fenced yard to run and play. Lita is healthy. She is spayed, tattooed, fully vaccinated (DAPPvL2, Bordatella, rabies), and microchipped. She is negative for heartworms and receives monthly heartworm and flea prevention. Litas' adoption fee includes the cost of ground transport to Linthicum Heights MD, Hagerstown MD or Quicksburg VA. She is located in Texas and cannot be transported until after she is adopted.

Story
Klinger, which means courageous, is a confident, intelligent boy that has endured the hard times that his humans fell on.  He was reluctantly  surrendered to rescue and he is a truly beloved boy.  This 2 year old, 27 pound Jack Russell mix boy is in a foster home with two big foster fur brothers and Klinger can run with the best of them. He’s housetrained, love car rides and walks and his foster dad is quite active to go on adventures with him.  This boy, Klinger loves an adventure.  He enjoys playing with his toys and is ALWAYS ready for playtime.  If you are looking for a couch potatoe then Klinger would qualify only on short term moments.  He is a great and active breed that makes a wonderful family dog that you will spend time with and actively seek the exercise time that he needs.   He would be a wonderful dog for a  young family, young couple or a  young single person that is a runner, an explorer and a dog owner that might even want to do some agility activities together.  Of course Klinger is neutered , UTD on all vaccinations, microchipped and on heartworm prevention.   They don’t come any cuter and any nicer than this boy.  If you are interested please contact Critter Cavalry Rescue at ccrtennessee@gmail.com and let’s start this ball rolling for his new home and family PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or ccrnewengland@gmail.comFebruary 29, 2024, 8:59 am

Story
Fifi is a Jack Russell mix girl that is young at just 2 years of age and weighing approximately 20 pounds.   Goodness what an up and down life she has already had with a few different homes, at least one litter of puppies born and definitely has felt the sadness of being abandoned.  She is still nervous around new and strange people but with some time and reassurance she can feel differently about herself and will know that strange people are there to take her away or harm her.  She is with a family who said a friend abandoned her with them and they reached out to Critter Cavalry Rescue to help find her a good and forever home.  We see this girl working beautifully with an early retired single woman who wants to be adored and have a snuggle bug like Fifi to live with every day.  We also see her as a companion to an empty nester couple who has a husband that will work slowly and patiently with Fifi’s trust issues with men. Someone has NOT been nice to her in the past.  It can be overcome with consistency and patience.  CCR has the training tools to show you how.  Fifi warms up fairly quickly to women and children.  This sweet Jack Russell mix girl has the JRT energy but that can be run off outside in a dog park or a fenced backyard at a home.  She’s very affectionate with people she is comfortable with and she enjoys cuddling under blankets. It can take her awhile to warm up to other dogs but she will.   She doesn’t ever start a fight but she does have boundaries and she likes to eat her dinner without other dogs close by.  She doesn’t like the foster cat, but has learned to tolerate her well and she’s settled in an environment at home she gets along well with other animals. She needs more leash training, but does generally well on walks.  We are not going to say that this girl is a cakewalk dog to adopt.  She is a dog that NEEDS someone to work with her quirks that humans created by keeping her off balance in her first years and never giving her any confidence that life was forever where she lived.  She is worth the true rescue effort to help her jump the hurdles that were thrown in front of her by wishy washy people who decided they didn’t want her anymore.  Handing her around left her unsure of things and people.  Sad. Sad.  Sad.   If you are interested in this beauty, please email Critter Cavalry Rescue at ccrnewengland@gmail.com   We have skilled trainers that can speak with you on the phone on tips to implement in working with her reassurance.  If you are local to Nashville, TN we have in person training available.  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.February 29, 2024, 8:59 am
