Story
Meet Ritter! Ritter is a good-looking American Bulldog mix. Estimated to have been born in 2015, Ritter is well set into his adult years. While he definitely has his mellow moments, but he is still full of youth, life, and love. Ritter came to us as a stray and was sadly never claimed, but that never seemed to bother him any. He was quick to make friends with us here and gain our love. Ritter is incredibly social and loves making all kinds of friends. He loves to get loved on by his friends but is also very independent and content to just relax in the same room as his pals, not needing constant contact or snuggles. He is a smart boy, already learning basic commands, and is learning to walk calmly on a leash too. Our favorite thing about Ritter is his goofy underbite and crooked front teeth.  Ritter is fully vetted, microchipped, and neutered.  He weighs around 50lbs.  Interested?

Meet the sweetest pup around Nova! She is 3 years old, loveing, playful, cute, walks well on a leash, plays well with all other dogs,and she absolutely love kids. She is best suited for a home without cats.    Nova originally came in as a stray through animal control, and she was very thin, has road burn on her paw pads, and was very dirty.  She still has some weight to gain and muscle to build but she is finally ready to find her forever home. Nova  loves playing fetch, loves going on walks, going on car rides, playing with friends, and giving  cuddles. She is so good with other dogs we recommend a family with others at home. Nova attaches herself to other dogs, and a person and won't leave their side, with them she is happy go lucky, however without either of those two around her all the time she shuts down and becomes very fearful.  This girl would make great loyal companion to any family interested in giving her a forever home. She is spayed making her adoption fee $175.  She is 47 lbs, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Interested in Nova ? Call 615-446-7387 Have other pups? Bring them with for this pretty lady to meet prior to adoption. ##1906202##

Story
This is our sweet precious Lucy. Lucy had an owner but her owner used to turn her out every day to wander the streets. A friend of the rescue would pick her up when she saw her and bring her home. She feared that Lucy would get hit by a car so one day when she returned her home, she asked the owners if they would surrender her to a rescue. They agreed and Lucy arrived here happy as a clam. She's a big girl, not fat, just a big girl. She's a very gentle big girl, sleeps in my bed with all the little ones sleeping on top of her! She loves children and cats. She was heart worm positive when she arrived but we have cleared all of that up. Lucy maybe a little older at 8 years but she has the energy of a puppy. She loves to play all day with the rest of the shelter dogs. She is spayed, fully vaccinated and house broken. She needs her forever home, could that be you? ADOPTION FEE $300

Story
Meet Ford, a remarkable Bulldog whose presence is as powerful and steadfast as a mighty river. Just like the characteristics of his breed, Ford embodies kindness and courage, showcasing a unique blend of friendliness and dignity. Now you may not see it by looking into his gorgeous brown eyes, but Ford has suffered in his short life.... he came to the rescue from the streets with a HORRIFIC hernia on his back end, near his rectum. He required two surgeries to correct the hernia and allow him to have a normal life again. He came through with SHINING colors ;) With his well-muscled frame and low-slung stature, Ford is the epitome of a true bruiser, but it's his iconic "sourmug" face that represents his unwavering courage and tenacity. Despite his robust appearance, Ford is a docile and loyal companion, adapting seamlessly to any environment, be it the bustling city or the serene countryside. With Ford by your side, you'll experience the unwavering devotion and unmistakable presence of a Bulldog, a breed that leaves an indelible mark on your heart. Don't miss the opportunity to welcome this incredible Bulldog into your life, as Ford's unique spirit will bring joy, love, and an unmistakable charm that only he can deliver. Some basic information about Ford; he is male, a Bulldog mix, and is medium-sized (20-59lbs). Ford is not great with other dogs (or cats or other critters) and would be best in a home with either only adults or older children and as a single dog. But his heart will fill your home with all the love you need!!! Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)

Story
Meet Gayle, a 2-year-old female American Bulldog mix with a stunning apricot and white bicolor coat. Gayle is a high-energy pup who loves spending time with people. She's incredibly friendly and cuddly, always eager to share affection. While Gayle enjoys the company of people, she can be selective with other dogs and might need a patient and experienced owner who can help her navigate her interactions. She's a bit anxious and defensive around other dogs, but with slow exposure and gentle guidance, she has the potential to adjust and become more comfortable over time. We suggest a single dog home for Gayle. If you're an experienced dog owner looking for a loving and energetic companion, Gayle could be the perfect addition to your family. With a little time and patience, she's sure to become a loyal and devoted friend. Come meet Gayle and see if you can be the one to provide her with a forever home filled with love and understanding.

Meatloaf... its whats for DINNER!!! I will take a side of mashed taters and some GRAVY too :) I am actually the puppy, formerly known as HAMBURGER, but mixed with some love, spice and a little ketchup and turned into THIS BIG HUNKA LOVE!! (with a side of cute and silly too) I have a big heart and a big personality too. I want to be someone's really really good friend, and guess what?? I am even BETTER on the second day! Put a slice of Meatloaf between two slices of bread with more ketchup and you are feasting again for lunch! Anyway, enuff about food.. I am seriously getting hungry! The kind of hunger that can only be satisfied with a REAL FAMILY like yours! I am sweet and happy, I am goofy and happy and I am squishy and happy too! So if you have not figured it out yet... I AM HAPPY!!! I am pretty good with other dogs, I can share... if I have to!! I am kind of a couch potato, if you are into napping I am down with that. I can hike and do active stuff too, if you are into that. But just like after eating a big meatloaf sandwich, the best thing to do is to take a nap :) So look me up, here are my stats- I am lovely, and a solid 72#. I was treated for heartworms and am one big hunk-o-love ready for you :):) Be the bread to my Meatloaf!!

Story
It's a pleasure to meet you, my name is Walter! I like to greet people the old fashioned way, a tip of the nose, a meeting of the eyes, and a formal introduction of who I am. I've always kind of been an old-soul, at least that's what people tell me, with my wrinkled fur and gentle eyes. As an older gentleman I tend to have a bit more patience than these young whippersnapper pups. You'll find me waddling around quite slowly but my tail still wagging none the less! I have been known to snap when nervous, but I have come so far and I just need a little time and patience. Cause I just so want to be your big goofy friend! I have a soft and squishy face to go along with my squishy personality! I am great with my people and great with other dogs too. I am shy at the very first but am on the fast track to love! As a senior dog there's really only one thing I care about ... TREATS ... just kidding, it's being close to others. Being close to others helps remind me that I am here and my story is still being written with infinite possibilities. Perhaps you and I could write the next chapter together?

Bravo is my name, now that indicates two things- either, BRAVO!!! Great dog!! OR, Bravo that comes after Alpha and before Charlie. Phonetically speaking- it could be EITHER! I hail from the great city of Laredo, via the high kill pound they have. I did arrive at the rescue with my buddies Alpha and Charlie. Those two are LONG ago adopted, and I am STILL waiting! You know, it is ok because I need a very very special family and will wait for that family to come along... I am a nervous boy at first so will need a family who will give me time to get comfortable and play, I need a buddy to play with, a happy and outgoing, confident pup or dog. I have all kinds of fun to live, I have come SO far, now just need the right home to be my goofy and silly self. I will entertain you and give butterfly kisses to the best family EVER!! So hurry up and adopt me, I don't want to wait a SECOND LONGER!!! Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area)

Story
Meet Spanky!  You'll never meet a fella so peppy and full of life. Spanky is a stinkin' cute guy, he is a Bull Terrier mix, which you can see in his sweet round face. We estimate him to have been born in late 2018, but this guy is still full of youth. He came to us originally as a stray, and he was wearing a collar that was so tight it made his breathing hoarse. Despite the discomfort he was in, Spanky is incredibly friendly and loves almost everyone he's met since! He is so outgoing, and gets thrilled when someone gives him love. Spanky has been working on basic commands in his time with us, and is currently learning 'sit' and some better leash manners. Like most pups, he loves a good treat, but the real way to his heart is through toys! If you want to get specific, squeaky toys rock his world. Spanky could keep himself entertained for hours and hours with a good squeaker. He is a tough chewer, though, so we recomend more durable ones like rubber toys. Spanky will make a great addition to the right home, and his perfect family would love to play with him all day long. Spanky is gentle enough to be good with kids too. He is best suited to be an only pet. Spanky is fully vetted, microchipped, and neutered. He weighs roughly 60lbs. Interested in this cute guy? Call 615-446-7387 to set an appointment.  ##1253541##

Meet Leonidas!  What this handsome boy lacks in height he makes up for in personality. Leonidas is a sweet little guy, he's the most loveable bulldog mix. He came to us as a stray in mid August, but he has been friendly and loving from the start. He has the biggest personality, he loves to run around and play the day away. If he were a person, he would be an athlete for sure. Energetics aside, he is a total ham! Mr. Leo is one of the biggest lovers on the planet, he loves nothing more than getting good scratches all around his cheeks and under his chin. Belly rubs are his favorite past-time, and he would make a killer movie-night partner. Leo has gone through lots of training here with us too, he knows the 'sit' command like the back of his paw, and will also walk well on a leash for a confident handler. Unfortunately, on 08/30/2021, Leo was diagnosed with heartworms.This poor guy went through almost a year of treatments, but we are happy to announce that he is now heartworm negative and ready to find his forever home! Leonidas is also required to be the only other animal in the home since he does not get along with other animals, however he loves children! Leo is fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped. Interested? Call us at 615-446-7387 to get any additional information, or to set up an appointment to come and meet him.  ##1190205##

Meet November!  Miss November is ready to find her forever home. Novie is a beautiful boxer and mountain cur mix, with an estimated birthday of 12/01/2020. November came to us as a scared and skinny stray who just wanted some love, and she blossomed in our care. She has come up to a healthier weight, and is showing us what a social butterfly she can be! Novie has become a big lovebug, she is all happy smiles and butt wiggles, and has never met someone she didn't love. She does very well with other dogs, but as always we require a meet and greet if you already have any at home. She also does great with kids, but we have not yet tested her with cats.  She is fully vetted, microchipped, and spayed. Her adoption fee is $175. Interested? Call us at 615-446-7387.  ##1880428##
