I'm Jake Blues

Elwood and Jake Blues are two husky mix brothers that were abandoned at a nice man’s home.  He was able to foster the brothers until we had space to take them in.Jake Blues is a one-year-old husky mix.  Jake has been at the shelter since he was only seven months old.  Jake 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 Jake has overcome a lot of fear and our trainer working with Jake 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.  Jake is dog selective, people selective, and does not get along with cats.  Jake 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. Jake is a very affectionate dog once he gets to know you.  His potential is very apparent, and he knows several commands.  Jake 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!

I'm Ruckus

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.

I'm Atta

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.

I'm Daphne

Daphne is a four-year-old catahoula mix with a lot of energy and a loving personality.  Daphne is very treat, toy, and affection motivated, so we think she will be both an easy to train and easy to love dog!  If you are looking for a dog that will be a good exercise buddy or a dog that will lay up on the sofa with you after a long day out on an adventure, she is the dog for you!  We think she would do well in a variety of homes, but could be a little too boisterous for a feline companion. Daphne is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and patiently awaiting her spay and microchipping procedures so she can be all fixed up and ready to be suited for the right family!  If you would like to meet her or learn more about our adoption protocol, please call or visit the shelter during open hours.

We're Libby and Sugar

Libby (beagle mix) and Sugar (daschund/schnauzer mix) are quite the dynamic doggie duo at the shelter.  Libby and Sugar are seven-year-old bonded sisters, obviously not biological, that grew up together and we plan to keep them together in their forever home.  When their owner was forced to move where he could not take them, he was heartbroken, but knew Animal Harbor was the best place for a temporary home.  I don’t think you could find a cuter and sweeter pair of dogs.  Sugar is a wild child spirit, while more mature/aware sister Libby is more reserved and watches out for her “little sister”.  Libby watches every move Sugar makes and when pulled away from each other temporarily, they struggle to be apart.  These two cuddle and love each other deeply.  If you can find it in your heart to give these two a new fresh start in their forever home, they would love that.  Both are up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, spayed, and microchipped.  To inquire about the dynamic duo, please submit our online adoption application.

I'm Cora

Cora is a five-year-old catahoula cattle dog that has experienced a tough go at life.  Cora was picked up by a lady who witnessed her weaving in and out of traffic, terrified, and unsafe. Cora was on stray watch for two weeks, unfortunately with no one claiming her as their own. Upon medical intake and testing, it was discovered that Cora has a heavy load of heartworms.  We hate to say it, but think she may have been abandoned just for that reason alone- for she is a fabulous girl. Since Cora had a heavy parasitic load, her treatment plan was more intensive and took longer for recovery. She has now finished her treatment and is awaiting a negative test result, so she can get on with her life and find her forever home once and for all.  Cora is great with other dogs and children, but will not be able to be housed with a cat. If you are interested in meeting Cora, please contact the shelter. We can’t wait to find her the perfect match!
