Story
Hula is a very sweet and gentle boy. He is estimated to be around 9 years young! He was rescued last Halloween at a music festival so his full history is unknown. He gets along fantastic with dogs, cats, and kids. Hula is already neutered, up to date on vaccinations and heartworm negative. He does have a little bit of a storm phobia, I’m assuming from his traumatic past. He is crate trained and currently sleeps in a crate at night but would much rather cuddle in bed with someone, especially during storms. He does well on a leash and loves going on walks. Hula would love someone that could give him plenty of attention, even if that means sitting at your feet all day or cuddling on the couch. He loves laying out in the sunshine and enjoys a nice cool breeze. He loves cuddling with other dogs, and cats, if they allow. He is a goofball with a calm demeanor.

Story
DannyBoy was abandoned on the side of the road where he waited for weeks for his owner to come back for him. He had a severely injured leg on intake and had to be trapped to receive medical attention to his badly injured leg which resulted in amputation. Since he's been here with us, he has learned to trust again and loves to get cuddles.

Story
I've had Hampton for 5 years. He is a rescue and showed up with a chain around his neck. Since moving to TN 2 years ago, he has gotten sadder and more anxious by the long days I'm at work and he is left at home alone. I've exhausted options of medication, natural supplements, training, doggy daycare, and long walks. I can't afford daily boarding or another pet and It took me a long time to accept, but he could live several more years and I'd rather him be happy over lonely. He got his shots renewed in the summer and physical and he is a healthy boy. He has a great guard dog bark, but has never been aggressive or hurt anyone. He could now be 7-8 years old. He can be skiddish to large dogs at first based off initial assumptions be was in dog fights. He is a big boy that thinks he is little and just full of love and pep, but loves all people and animals. He would make a fantastic family dog or farm dog or work from home companion dog, or companion to an already loved pet.
