Story
Kai came to us as part of a cruelty investigation by ACPD and ACPO. He came to us starved, body score 1/9. He had a loving home for much of his life but fell on hard times when his owner died. Fortunately, with police intervention, he was rescued and came to our shelter for care and re-homing. He is neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative and fully vaccinated now. Kai is a good boy. Easy to be around, very calm. However, he is dog selective, so we recommend that he be the only dog in the home. We also recommend a home with no small children. Kai is pretty good on a leash and knows basic commands. Primary Color: Brown Brindle Secondary Color: White Age: 6yrs 0mths 0wks

If you are interested in OLIVIA or in adopting a pup in general, the first step is an adoption application. Download an adoption application here Please email the completed application to adoptionteam4.woofriver@gmail.com Please submit an application rather than an inquiry with no application attached. This adorable girl is OLIVIA! She is a sweet, sweet girl who can be a little shy when you first meet her. However watching her personality bloom as she becomes comfortable with her new surroundings is incredibly rewarding. OLIVIA is perfectly content to spend a lazy day on her dog bed watching a movie with her person, or, if you’re in the mood for some exercise, OLIVIA is there and ready. She absolutely loves going for walks and is learning how to walk well on a leash. OLIVIA is absolutely fabulous with other dogs. She is exponentially happier and more confident with canine companionship, so she is only available to forever families who have at least one other resident dog. She will fill your heart with joy and your life with happy memories for many years to come.

We will reach out to you as soon as your application is processed. Thank you in advance for your patience. All of our dogs start their journey in Memphis, Tennessee where they remain in loving foster families until they are adopted. Once adopted, some pups stay local in Memphis. Many others travel via one of our transport partners to their new forever homes. We use Pet Express Transport (https://petexpresstupelo.wordpress.com) for our Nashville, Knoxville and New England adoptions. For our Midwest adopters, we have our own private transport. Breed selection is done in conjunction with two local vets and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well-educated decision from well qualified staff. Due to the extremely high volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that you request, complete, and submit an application before asking additional questions. We try very hard to include all pertinent information in our bios. We are excited to help you find your new family member. However, Woof River is 100% volunteer operated. We want to spend our time saving dogs and assisting those adopters who have taken the time to complete an application. Thank you for understanding. Please LIKE Woof River on Facebook!

Story
Bugs is your typical stubborn bully breed! He is sweet and playful to those he knows and trusts. He loves to run his zoomies in the yard! He will need to continue working with his trainer after adoption to ensure a successful transition and future! Current issues that need to be worked on: Bugs has issues meeting people. He is consistently working on impulse control and proper greeting etiquette. With his training he’s learned to relax in a social setting, but lifelong precautionary measures will need to be taken to ensure safety. He does have a history of attempted bites upon greeting and has been muzzle conditioned for this reason. Positive attributes: Bugs loves scratches & running around in the yard playing chase! He learns very quickly and is respectful of his commands. He loves food making him easy to train for most things. Animal sociability: He would be best in a home without other animals. Ideal home: Bugs would do best in a home dedicated to his needs. He can really be a sweet boy, but he needs someone who can help him shine! A dog saavy home is an absolute must. Someone who understands the breed and is prepared to manage him lifelong. Quiet in crate? Yes! The only time he makes a peep is when a human he doesn’t know walks by. But as soon as they’re out of sight, he’s quiet! He enjoys a peanut butter kong when left for a few hours but he isn’t fussy without! I keep a blanket and a hard chew bone in his crate for him to curl up with! Housebreaking (if known)? He has a solid schedule & only goes potty outside! House manners? He can be excitable but he goes to place & relaxes!

Story
Overall assessment: Kahlua is a sweet girl with a fun side! She has an opportunist personality in the sense that if she believes you are not paying attention, she will follow her impulses, so a dog-saavy home is a must. Current issues that need to be worked on: Kahlua loves to be loved, but she needs structure & management. She tends to try and micromanage her environment especially when energy is high. With training, she’s learned to relax more but this will need continued training and management. Positive attributes: She is sweet, playful, and loves going on adventures! Animal sociability: She seems curious about other dogs, but her tendency to micromanage makes her difficult to place with other dogs without someone who is very dog saavy. She is not good with small animals - cats, rabbits, etc. Ideal home: Kahlua would prosper in a home that takes is looking for an active companion that can also double as a couch buddy. She needs someone dedicated to continuing her training to ensure her success. Quiet in crate? Yes she only whines when food is being prepped - she loves to eat :) Housebreaking (if known)? Kahlua has a potty schedule & sticks to it beautifully House manners? She spends a lot of time on place in the house to avoid her opportunistic ways, but she has been doing well in her trainers home
