Dogs Available for Adoption
Hi, I'm Dixie! I'm a one-year-or-so-old mix of some sort. Everywhere I
go there is plenty of discussion on what I might be, mountain
feist/cur/doberman/miniature pinscher mix of some variety. My foster mom
says, though, that I am 20 pounds of legs and cuteness. I have not quite
figured out what all to do with these long legs and sometimes I'm a
little uncoordinated and hit the wall when playing inside. I was found
wandering in Anderson County, so I don't have much to say about my life
before SARG but I sure am glad to be in a foster home! I get fed
regularly, I learned a doggie door in seconds, and I have foster
siblings to play with. Life is pretty good now. My foster mom walks me
pretty regularly and I keep hearing her tell people I'm a 'dream' on a
leash. I think that must be a good thing as I usually get pets after
that. I LOVE to go for walks. Foster mom says I would be a great
walking, jogging and/or hiking buddy. I'm always ready to go, even at 6
in the morning! I like to ride in the car and will jump in, sit down in
the dog bed and not make a peep til we get "there," wherever
"there" may be. I really enjoy playing with other dogs and I
like to run, so a fenced yard is the best bet for me. I am housetrained,
but SARG really recommends I go somewhere with a doggie door so I can go
outside when needed, or have someone home with me so they can let me
out. I like to go outside a lot. I'm still a bit of a pup, so my
attention span is sometimes that of, well, a pup. I can be a little
timid with strangers and new dogs, but it doesn't take long for me to
warm up and then I'll be your best friend!! Did I mention I like to play
and take walks? I need plenty of exercise to relieve some of my puppy
energy, but then I like to take naps. My foster mom says I'm highly
food-motivated and easily trained. All I know is, I like food, and
occasionally I have to do stuff to get treats. That's OK, it seems to
make my foster mom happy. Please contact SARG if you think I might be
your new best friend.

Barkley is a super-sweet, 5-year-old beagle mix, who weighs 16.6 pounds.
Barkley is housetrained. He gets along well with other dogs and appears
to get along with cats. He loves to play with his toys, although some of
them don't live very long. Barkley's favorite game is tug-of-war. When
he is not playing, Barkley loves to snuggle up next to his human to read
or watch television. Barkley has some food allergies and is on a special
diet. He will need to be kept on a limited ingredient food to prevent
ear infections and skin issues from recurring. Barkley is looking for a
special home that he can call his own, and he promises to be a loyal and

Elvis is a sweet and loving Chihuahua mix who is approximately 13 years
old. He has a few health issues for which he is taking some medications;
but despite his issues, he is a spry and happy little boy. He loves to
run and play, but he is a cuddle bug too. Elvis lives in a a foster home
with several other dogs and he gets along with all of them. He appears
to be housetrained, but he does have an occasional accident. Elvis is
looking for a loving forever home and a human companion with a big

Wanda is a small Chihuahua-mix female who was found wandering down the
road by herself with a collar that was much too tight for her. She had
no tags, and no one looked for her at the shelter. We currently do not
have a foster home for this little girl, so if you could give her a
temporary home until the forever one comes along, please do let us know.
She is staying at the vet's office for now and is learning to walk on a
leash. She loves to snuggle, and she truly does not like being in the
cage at the vet's office.

Lee Lee is a 15-pound, nine-year-old Corgi mix. She is quiet and calm,
and she loves both to sit on laps and go on walks. Lee Lee gets along
with everyone she meets -- dogs, cats, and children -- and she is
house-trained and crate-trained.

Daisy is a Sheltie mix, about two years old and housetrained. She seems younger, based
on her energy
level and playfulness. She loves to go outside and run around her foster mom's fenced
yard, as fast as she can go, all the while keeping her eye out for squirrels up in the
trees. She could benefit from some training, particularly for her leash manners. She is
very attentive to people and greets visitors enthusiastically. Daisy definitely needs
a home where she'll get plenty of exercise, including a fenced yard where she can run.
She is probably too active and exuberant for a toddler, just because she might cause
him/her to fall.

Patsy is a small puggle, about 10 months old. She has been spayed and had her vaccinations.
She is a sweetheart, full of energy. A fenced yard would be ideal for her so that she can
run and play and use up some of that puppy energy. We will update her personality as we
more about her, but one thing is certain: whatever home she occupies will be filled with
activity and puppy love.

Kinsley is a female, brindle and white boxer mix. We don't have a lot of details about her yet,
but everyone who has met her says she is a real sweetheart.

Charlie came to SARG from the Anderson County Animal Holding Facility and went directly
to the family who are adopting him.

Murphy is a 4-year-old, tan and white Papillon mix.
He likes other dogs and is very active but also likes his cuddles. Murphy's foster mom,
who is a dog trainer, suggests that any children in the home be older ones. She also
has offered his new family a single training session with him. If you are interested in
Murphy, please go to the SARG
website and fill out an application. We will accept applications through 9/15/18.

Liza Mae is a young yellow Lab mix female. She was found as a stray and
very quickly adopted by her foster family.
Victor is a young terrier mix who was adopted immediately after coming
from the shelter.
Bandit is an approximately two-year-old, mixed-breed cutie. We haven't
done a DNA test on him, but we are guessing he has Chihuahua and min pin
with some hound and terrier added for variety. And occasionally, he walks
with that funny bulldog gait. What it all comes down to is 20 pounds of
cuteness. Bandit came to us as a stray last fall, and efforts to find
his family failed. His demeanor gave us the impression that he had not
had much socialization in his young life. However, he came into a
multiple-dog home and learned to get along with others, use the doggie
door, and potty outside in a short time. He also didn't bother anything
in the house. He likes to be near his humans, sit by them on the couch,
or stop by for some petting, but is not a "clingy"-type dog.
He LOVES to go for walks and is not bothered by passersby, bikes, train
whistles, or barking dogs along the way. The foster family has been
working with a trainer, and Bandit has made great strides since his
arrival. We feel he deserves and is now ready for his own forever
family. Bandit probably would not do well with a first-time dog owner,
but should flourish with someone who has had some dog experience. He has
been on some calming medication that has significantly helped him; we
feel he will definitely need to continue that in his new surroundings.
We will provide two training sessions with his trainer, so that his new family
can continue to reinforce the lessons he has learned. He is okay with
cats, and would probably enjoy having another furry brother or sister
his size or slightly larger with a calm demeanor. If you think you might
like to make this bundle of cuteness a part of your family, please
contact us either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone
