Ruckus is a two-year-old shar-pei mix with an extremely sweet personality and true southern charm. Ruckus will require a patient and nurturing adopter. Ruckus is considered a special needs dog for a couple of reasons. First, Ruckus suffers from separation anxiety, and needs to be with a family that understanding the condition that spends time training him and making him feel comfortable in his new space. Ruckus also suffers from a medical condition that requires him to be on an enzymatic medication so he can absorb all the nutrients he needs to thrive. Ruckus is great with other animals, and we think being in a home with another pet could really improve his anxiety. Ruckus is in a dire need to be out of the shelter, for the shelter environment is very hard on a dog with his condition. Ruckus is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered, and microchipped. If you have a place in your heart and home for a very special furbaby, please come meet Ruckus today and show him someone really cares.
Please stop in or call the shelter at 931-962-4472 for more information.
Hello, my name is Skip, the ultra cool guy around here. I am a very handsome three-year-old beagle dog. I was found running loose in a neighborhood where people often drop off dogs like me. With being in the hound group, please know that I may be quite vocal but I will let you know all you need to know as the neighborhood watch patrol. I weigh roughly around 20 lbs or more. I am not fond of other dogs at this time, but the staff tell me that may change once I am neutered. The girls at the shelter have named me after a local restaurant that has a cute little diner theme that they think I would be an excellent mascot for! The name of the restaurant is Skip’s, and I am told they have the most delicious burgers. Of course I would not know because I am a dog and have been told they are not good for me! Anyways, I would love a large fenced in the yard and a loving family because I love to enjoy the freedom of the outdoors and I am very loving and cuddly when my nose isn’t glued to the ground! It would be great if I could be the only pet. I am not potty trained, so I will need to be taught all that jazz. In case you didn't notice, I am quite charming and adorable if I must say so myself. More importantly, I am up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered, microchipped, and ready to find my new place to call home.
Atta is a red and white three-year-old pittie mix. Atta is the definition of a dog that shows clear physical and emotional signs of abuse and neglect, but this does not determine her fate or future. When first visiting Atta, she is very reserved and intimidated by the presence of an unknown human, and especially the human touch, but with each additional minute spent with her, you start to see slivers of her true personality come to life. Her ears swiftly go from tightly laid back to bravely on top of her head, her tail quickly goes from tucked under her behind to gently swaying back and forth, gaining momentum with every nice word spoken to her. Once she gains your trust she begs for your affection and of course for a play session with a tennis ball! This is when you start to see the life and zest of a happy dog full of hope for her future come out. Many times the shelter is a scary place for a dog that has been used to living in a home, but for Atta the shelter is truly a place of safety and security she has never experienced before. Her gratitude for a safe shelter and caring, loving humans shows. We can’t imagine how beautiful her transformation will continue outside of the shelter. Atta is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, spayed, and microchipped. If you are prepared to adopt an angel dog, she certainly fits the bill.
Elwood and Jake Blues are two husky mix brothers that were abandoned at a nice man’s home. Elwood has special needs that will require a special adopter and a safe environment in order for him to succeed. Being dumped in the streets at a young age meant Jake had very little proper socialization with people or animals leading up to his arrival at the shelter. Furthermore, the shelter environment is even more challenging for a fearful and stressed dog like Jake. Even after Elwood has overcome a lot of fear and our trainer working with Elwood as much as possible to properly socialize him, he is still going to need some extra work outside of the shelter with a very committed and confident adopter. Elwood is dog selective, people selective, and does not get along with cats. Elwood will not be able to go into a home with small children, but would do well with older teens if they know how to respect boundaries. Elwood is a very affectionate dog once he gets to know you. His potential is very apparent, and he knows several commands. Elwood is also up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered, and microchipped. Serious inquiries only. Please visit our website and submit our online adoption application to inquire about Jake. We would love to tell you more about this great dog!
Logan is a Great Dane mix, born to be the light of a special family’s lives. Logan is seven years old, and prior to coming to Animal Harbor he lived a life of neglect, both physically and emotionally. Completely shut down and terrified of humans, it took patience, time, and love to show Logan that humans can be good to animals. Logan is the definition of a gentle giant. He will need to be in a home that understands his special needs and is gentle, quiet, and patient in their training. Logan loves to play ball and he opens up greatly once he gets to know you. At this time, we do not recommend him going into a home with young children, but older respectful children/teens would be a great fit. Logan is heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, and awaiting his neuter and microchip implantation. If you think your family would be a good fit for Logan, please fill out our online adoption application at https://www.animalharbor.org/adoption-application and our adoption coordinator will be in touch with you.
