We have added some fabulous dogs and puppies who need permanent homes as quickly as we can find them so we can rescue more from a certain deadly fate!
The 4 puppies (Cass, Sly, Sting, Twiggy) are adorable. Their mom (Aja) is too sweet. Senior border collie Leland is a wonderful leaner when petted. Chihuahua Peewee came from Mexico, we’re told, and is hoping to find a home in the USA.
Contact us if you might be able to give FURever homes to any of these loving dogs and puppies. If you can post a flyer for us, please download and print this one.

Sophie is an 8+ year old Maltese, Bichon Frise Mix who we found down on her luck in a West Tennessee Animal Shelter. This grand lady asks for nothing other than a little love and caring in return for her gratefulness at being with her person.
Sophie is a special needs dog, in addition to being a senior dog. She has a heart murmur, for which she takes an inexpensive daily diuretic medication to prevent congestion. Just as with humans who take a “water pill,” this means that Sophie needs to go out more often for potty breaks.
Sophie may be slightly hard of hearing. She will stay quietly in her crate and asks for very little.
She really dances when you get the leash out, she wants to go for a walk. She has this slow ambling gait that would make her the perfect companion for someone else who wants to get out regularly for a stroll, but not be pulled along by a younger dog who’s trying to get somewhere quick!
Sophie has a few good years left, but she needs someone who can see her beauty and not focus on her aging deficits. You know, we’re ALL getting older … and better … even Sophie!
She gets along fine with other dogs in the household. Sophie would do well in a household with someone who is able to be home on a regular basis (think about “holding it” for more than 8 or 9 hours)!.
With November being “Adopt a Senior Pet month” we have reduced Sophie’s adoption fee to $75 for a qualified adopter. Could you be the one to open your heart and your home to our lovely and loving Sophie?
If you could be the one, please review Sophie’s bio and complete the adoption application.
Thanks for considering one of our senior “seasoned” dogs.

We’ve got a lot of senior dogs who are looking for their forever homes. These dogs are typically the lowest maintenance (that puppy energy and puppy “challenges” are long gone).
If you’re looking for a pet who’s already housetrained, quiet, docile, and able to be alone while you or your family is out of the house at work or school, please consider one of our older pets. These mostly aged 6-9 year old pets make excellent companions, yet they are often overlooked by folks who are considering adopting. They ask so very little of their person, but give so very much of themselves when they realize they’ve got a great thing going (after a sometimes not so very good life).
Have a look at some of our adoptable senior dogs. Belle, Birdy, Dixie, Dusty, Ellie, Katie, Mandy, Poppa Smurf, Princess, Pudge, Sophie.
Please consider adopting one of them to be your forever friend. They will lavish you with love and thanks.

Tucker relaxes at an adoption event after "working the crowd"
Tucker is a great dog who doesn’t seem to make the best impression with strangers if he is insecure in his environment, like at adoption events!
He is fostered in a home with several other dogs. He tends to find a spot where he doesn’t get right in the middle of any chaos, unless Marley the chihuahua happens to be around.
Tucker and best buddy, Marley
Tucker loves Marley and they have a blast playing together. In fact, the smaller dogs seem to like Tucker, I think he feels that he is their size. He has been cat tested and failed however. Tucker seems uncomfortable with larger dogs; since he was rescued from the streets this is not so hard to understand.
He really is a sweetheart who is housetrained and does not chew up anything in the house. He is also pretty quiet. Tucker is fostered with Lisa.

Read Tucker’s bio and see more of his pics here. Tucker’s hoping to be with his new family by the holidays. Could it be with you?

What a great day for adoptions…we had 5 great families adopt from Good Dog Rescue today. Seemed like we were busy all day. Many came in to visit and obtain information or adopt. We still have lots of good dogs available to adopt.
Rissa gets adopted
Bindi gets adopted
Marmee gets adopted
Ollie gets adopted
Bunny gets adopted
We have many other dogs that were at the event and still need to be given a great ‘fur’ever home.

5 puppies … 8 weeks old … Mom was a buff Cocker Spaniel … Dad was a Beagle.
Can you say “adorable offspring”?
These 5 puppies were scheduled to be euthanized, along with every other dog and pup who was unfortunate enough to be at the Hardeman County Animal Shelter in Bolivar, TN.
They got a reprieve when they found a temporary foster home.
But now they need a new foster home till they’re adopted. One or more per foster home. We need your help!
They’ve had their first shots and have been dewormed. They range in weight from 3-4 pounds to a whopping 9 pounds. They are very well socialized and healthy pups.
Please click to access a PDF version of the flyer and post/alert others that these Little Women need help!
We thank you … contact us soon.

… virtually, that is!
Did you ever wonder what all of our adoptable dogs look like? If we had them all in one place and you could take a look across all of them, what unifying characteristics would you notice?
Well, we pulled them together virtually in thumbnails by name. You can click on the image and be taken to the full size one – it will be much more viewable (for details).
We have small dogs and large dogs. We have white dogs and black dogs. We have smooth-haired dogs and scruffy-haired dogs. We’ve got dogs with ears up and ears down. We’ve got dogs with characteristics in between all of these.
Our unifying characteristics? They’re ALL ready to go to their forever homes. Soon. Now.
Spy one you might like to bring into your home? Go to our listing of dogs and puppies at http://members.petfinder.com/~TN308/adoptable.html and read the details of the dog or puppy that you could make your best friend.
We hope you find your lifelong friend!
