Story
Aria is a 1.5-year-old loving, high-energy, sweet, pit mix. She is crate trained and knows base commands (sit, eat, wait, etc.) and behaves very well once she's had a chance to play to release energy, so I'd definitely recommend a large yard. Her high energy levels can make her hard to manage so she needs an experienced owner who is prepared to give her time and attention. She plays well with young children and other animals, as long as she is supervised, to help make sure she doesn't get too excited or forget her size. I have been her only owner and had her since she was about 6 weeks, she is spayed and hasn't had any health concerns or incidents of aggression or biting. She has a very stern bark and gives good notice of anyone approaching the property. We are looking to give her to a long-term owner in preparation for an upcoming move as we will no longer be able to house her.

Hello There!My name is Twinkie. I am looking for my twin. Could you be my twin? They say that twins do a lot together and have lots of fun! If you like hanging out, meeting other dogs and kisses, then you might be it! I am getting the hang of potty training, walking on a leash and gaining confidence in my foster home! My foster momma says that I love my companion foster dog friend. I really enjoy playing with toys and I really like animal based chews. So, how about it? Wanna be twinkies together?

Story
Harley anne is an extremely sweet girl- we rescued her from dog fighting when she was younger. She is amazing with all humans including kids and babies, but is very dog selective. We would like her new home to be experienced to help give her the attention and activity she needs. She is a fiddler and will take up the whole bed if you let her. We are so sad to be rehoming her and need her to go to a family that will love her as much as we do.

Story
Batman is a 8 year old, sweet dog. He loves people, cuddles, and attention. He was the runt of the litter, so he is not as big as his siblings. We are looking for a home where he can continue to be loved and cares for. Ideally, it would be a home where he would get lots of cuddles, walks, and attention. Although he is good with kids, he gets too excited when meeting new people so little kids tend to get pushed over. He has never snapped at anyone, but he has licked people silly.

This gorgeous girl is so lucky to be alive! We were driving down a busy four lane highway when we spotted her run across the highway barely missing getting run down by a large box truck. She ran into the parking lot of a Dollar General so we immediately pulled into the parking lot and luckily she ran up to our van and jumped right in! We tried and tried to find her owner but to no avail. It's hard to see in the pics but she has one blue eye and one golden eye. We suspect she had a little Husky in her but we did a DNA anyway, lots and lots of breeds in her DNA, including 5% Chihuahua! She's a super mutt! Clarice is spayed, fully vaccinated, crate trained and microchipped. She is available for immediate transport PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE LOCATED IN TENNESSEE AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MEET OUR PETS PRIOR TO ADOPTION! ADOPTION FEE $500

This handsome young fella is Shaka. Shaka was brought to our shelter because his family was moving. They could not take him with them. Shaka is still a young pup and he has equal energy. He would love and active home life. Shaka, would be the perfect running, hiking, anything outdoorsy, kind of buddy. He does need some training to teach him what is acceptable behavior for a young pup. Luckily, he is enthusiastic, eager to please and treat motivated. Shaka has lived with young children. Due to his energy level, older children would suit him best. Please stop by to meet our boy, today.

Meet Mary Jo, she affectionately known by the staff as MJ. MJ was transferred to us from one of our transfer partners in hopes to find her forever home. Mary has a funky little walk, turns out long ago she had an injury to her hip an her body healed itself with no veterinary care. You would never know, it doesn't slow her down at all. She still has lots of pep in her step! MJ would love a cozy home with a nice place to curl up at the end of her day with her favorite toy. She is not a fan of small animals, so no cats or small dogs for this girl. MJ has been waiting for her family for far too long, ask about her today!

Story
Chubs is an 8 year old pit bull/boxer mix that has been nothing but loving and caring his entire life with me. I have had him for 6 years and he loves play, snuggle, relax and play outside. He is great with people in any environment and very welcoming to strangers he does not know as long as known people are around him. He is best to be a single dog in a household. He is very playful with other dogs and simply doesn’t understand when other dogs dont want to play in a home setting. I have very demanding hours and have been unable to spend the time and love on Chubs these past few years that he deserves. Its with a heavy heart that I decided to go this route but it is what is best for him and I hate seeing him just lounging on the couch, knowing someone with the time can give him the life he deserves. I am not requesting any fees or compensation….. I simply just want to know chubs will be taken care of and if possible given updates here and there on his life.
