Scruffy, playful, sweet Pineapple Willy is also a little fighter! Brought in as a stray, Willy appeared to be injured. Upon further medical evaluation, it was discovered that he had a fractured pelvis that was previously injured. He was likely hit by a vehicle while he was out on the streets, and was then left to fend for himself. Good news is that he is healing naturally without surgical intervention needed. He will be required to be kenneled with light exercise while his pelvis continues to heal over time. Willy is around one-year-old, and we think that he has a great prognosis. Willy likes to talk to you and he is social with other dogs. We would want Willy in a home with older children only at this time. Willy is neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative, and up to date on vaccinations. If you are interested in adopting Willy, please fill out our online adoption application at https://www.animalharbor.org/adoption-application and our adoption coordinator will be in touch with you.
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.
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.
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.
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!
O’Charley is a precious two-year-old dachshund/poodle mix anxious to find a new loving home to call his own. After being brought to the shelter by no fault of his own, he is looking for the perfect companion to live a great life with. O’Charley is sweet and loves human affection, however he has shown to not be a huge fan of other canines here at our shelter. He loves to take long walks and follow his nose wherever it takes him. O’Charley has not been around children and would do best in a home with older children only at this time. O’Charley does not really like to be picked up frequently, but is very sweet and has a great personality. If you are looking for an independent, cool and quirky, classy companion, he is it! He is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered, and microchipped. If you think your family would be a good fit for O’Charley, please fill out our online adoption application at https://www.animalharbor.org/adoption-application and our adoption coordinator will be in touch with you.
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!
