Introducing Willy, a one-year-old, 30-pound, wire-haired fox terrier mix. He loves children, other dogs, and ignores cats.

This sweet baby girl is just looking for a snuggle and a warm bed to lounge in. Otter is a sweet little gal who is seeking a family of her very own. Otter is a good girl, is crate-trained, housetrained, and has very good manners. She needs a home where she can have lots of attention and affection -- she is a bit of a love bug! She will need an extended game of ball, long walks and a good play session each day -- she is young and very active. She is absolutely the best of the best, and some lucky family will be glad they adopted her! Otter is a beagle and shepherd mix, is 1 year old (April 2022), and weighs right around 40 pounds. She is up to date on vaccines, spayed, and ready for her meet-and-greets! If you think Otter is the girl you have been looking for, give us a call for more information!

Happy Tails -- Dogs Adopted or Pending


These little sweethearts are Jericho (chocolate) and Jethro (white with black). Jericho is about two years old and weighs 10 pounds, and Jethro is approximately one and weighs 6.1 pounds. They appear to be miniature Dachshund mixes, perhaps with some Chihuahua thrown in. These little fellows came from the Oak Ridge Shelter. They are in the process of learning to walk on a leash, and we believe they will need housetraining. They are in good health; Little Jethro has a slight birth defect in his right front foot, which has no toenails. This does not seem to hamper his mobility in any way. Jericho has been diagnosed by our vets with a luxating patella, but they do not believe this will be a problem for him, as long as he maintains a normal weight. These guys are closely bonded with each other and need to stay together, and we would love to find them a home with a fenced yard to play in, and where someone is home with them a lot. They appear to be easy-going and not likely to have problems with other animals or people. They are full of energy and overflowing with cuteness.

Hi, my name is Maggie. I’m a 6-year-old beagle/blue tick hound mix, although my foster family thinks I’m more beagle/German pointer. When I’m outside, my nose is always on the ground sniffing, and when I see something that interests me, my tail goes stiff and my paw goes up like I’m pointing. My whole goal in life is to be loved on--I admit I’m a huge a love bug. I’d be perfectly happy to sit on your lap or beside you and cuddle all day long. If you look at me or say even a single word to me, my tail starts wagging and thumping with excitement. My foster family has started calling me "Waggie Maggie." They even say I’m one of the best and most well-behaved dogs they’ve ever fostered. My dream home would be with a family that has someone home during most of the day that can love on me and spend time with me. I walk well on a leash and car rides are a breeze. I’m currently at 40 pounds, but my doctor says I need to be at 35 pounds, so I can stay fit and live a long and healthy life, so I need a family that will help me stay focused and dedicated on achieving that goal. Once you meet me, you’ll realize it’s love at first belly rub and that I’m the girl for you!

Paul Hollywood
Our Paul Hollywood isn't much of a baker, but he is a wonderful couch potato and snuggler. His favorite thing is belly rubs. Paul is about 5 years old and weighs just under 27 pounds. He loves his foster companion dog Rory, and he would like to have a home with another friendly dog for company. He is housetrained and likes short walks, but he is soon ready to head back to the couch for some rest. Even so, he has a tendency to dart out the gate when it opens and has to be watched carefully in that situation. He also likes to run for the door when it opens, so for his safety he needs to have a fenced yard to keep him from dashing out into the street. His foster family are working to train him to wait for permission. Paul is usually very laid-back, but he does get excited meeting someone new and could sometimes be a bit too exuberant for a small toddler.

Thumper is a friendly & funny male Jack Russell/beagle mix. He is 5 years old and weighs around 25 pounds. Thumper is house trained and does not shed very much! Thumper likes to ride in the car. He would be happy in a moderately active home and would be a good hiking or jogging companion. A fenced yard would be best, where he can run and play, maybe with a doggie playmate. He is people-oriented, and we believe he would be good with children 10 and up.

Look out, World, here comes Juan! Juan is a 3-year-old neutered male terrier mix who weighs about 10 pounds. He was rescued from a bad situation after being on his own for a while. He is a beautiful, precious soul. He is quick to learn and very loving. But he also has an independent side. He loves to chase everything that moves, including cars. So, a leash is a must when on a walk. Juan gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home: a great Pyrenees, Lab/pit mix, and blue tick hound. He learned quickly that, although he wanted to be the boss of everyone, it didn’t work out so well. The Pyrenees corrected him a few times, and that was the end of him being the boss. Juan is house-trained and walks well on a leash. He loves his two daily walks. He pulls for the first 10 minutes and then settles into the walk. He is food-motivated, which is a plus when training a dog. He will require grooming several times a year.

SARG says "Hello" to Dolly -- a friendly, laid-back, three-year-old hound mix. We think she also has some pug in her DNA -- mostly in her very curly, very unhound-like tail. Dolly weighs 28 pounds and is totally house-trained. She is great with children, cats and other dogs and easy on a leash, especially if you don't mind walking a dog whose hound nose is constantly pointed to the ground. Dolly loves her walks and play time at the local dog park, but she also loves to chill on the sofa. She would be a wonderful, loyal, and loving companion to anyone who gives her the forever home she so deserves.

Meet Chester, a 2½-year-old Boston terrier. He is a lovely brindle with white socks. He does well with the other dogs in his foster home. He has learned to use a doggie door and, although he walks pretty well on the leash, his foster mom believes that, as a young dog, he needs the freedom to run in a fenced yard. Chester definitely wants to play and will chase a ball or other toy and also enjoys a good game of tug. He would probably be a bit much for young children but might be good with older, respectful kids. He has good energy and would make a great hiking or jogging companion. He would also do well with another dog his size or larger who was interested in playing. Chester is a pleasant chap who will make a great companion.

Beaker was adopted a few months ago, and is much loved, but his adopter's situation has changed unexpectedly, so that he will not have enough time to spend with Beaker and making it best for Beaker to find another home. He has written the following detailed description for this good boy.

Beaker is a special little guy. He’s a 2-year-old collie/shepherd mix, really smart, well-behaved, friendly, and energetic, with a quirky personality. He weighs about 28 pounds. He absolutely loves walks and car rides (he can’t get enough of either). He also likes hikes, being outside, looking out windows, his cow toy, the dog park (he likes to herd the other dogs), being hugged and held, sitting on the back of the couch (he’s like a cat). He knows basic commands (sit, down, stay, drop it, off, break). He’s good at staying in his crate all night to sleep. And he enjoys figuring out puzzle feeders. He can be indifferent to a few things, like other dogs while on walks, children, or large crowds. He doesn’t like cats. He will stare at them and whoever makes the first move, he will try to chase them. He can have bad separation anxiety if he is left in the crate while his owner is gone. However, he is totally fine if he’s left out, and usually just snoozes on the couch while waiting.

He absolutely hates having his ears cleaned and flushed. For the time being, it has to be done, especially his right ear. But he will squirm, run away, and spend the next 15 minutes trying to shake the fluid out and whining and whimpering.

He needs: someone that is home a lot, whether working from home or like a regular schedule (e.g., 9-5). I think he could do well in a family home, where he can be given a lot of attention. He does well with other dogs, so a multi-dog home could work. He will benefit most from formal training, as well.

The biggest issue: as mentioned above, he has calcified ear hematomas. His ears are rough and folded over, and prone to more ear infections. Consequently, he is scheduled to have a total ear canal ablation in mid-February. This procedure should help him long-term. He is now available to meet potential adopters, but he will be ready for his new home only after he recuperates from this procedure.

He comes with a crate, bed, toys, food, treats, leash, harness, car seat cover, car leash/seatbelt, medication, vet history and recommendation.
