Dogs Available for Adoption
Gunther is a dear, cuddly two-year-old Chihuahua. His former owners loved
their dogs but had to give them up when they went into assisted living. So
Gunther comes from a caring home where he was used to the company of several
other dogs. He is pretty laid-back and is easy to walk on a leash (with a
harness). He is so appreciative of attention, loves to be in contact with you
and closes his eyes and all but purrs when you pet him. He can be very funny,
especially when he wags his whole body in greeting. He is housetrained and is
not a fussy eater. He seems a bit nervous with men, but he can be won over with
a little patience. This sweet-tempered little fellow is a perfect companion for
someone who is looking for a real lap dog.

Sugar is a 10-year-old Jack Russell mix. She weighs approximately 14 pounds.
She is sweet and loving. She loves to snuggle and watch television
or read a book. She gets along with the other dogs and the cat
in her foster home. As you can see from her pictures, Sugar loves
basking in the sun. She also likes to play chase with her foster
brothers. She seems to be housetrained, but might have an accident
on occasion. Sugar would make a great addition to a loving family
and a great companion to another dog. Sugar is as sweet as her name

Introducing sweet Josephine--or Josie as her foster mother calls
her. Josie is about a year old, weighs 30 pounds and is a very
playful pup who loves other dogs. She adores children and women,
and also men -- once she interacts with them for about five minutes.
Josie likes to play with cats, sometimes more than they want to play
with her, so she would probably do better with a cat who is prepared
to give her a good swat on the nose. She especially loves to play with
other dogs and she would love to have another doggy companion in the
house. Josie is crate-trained, easy on a leash and has incredibly
soulful eyes and pettable soft fur. Her markings are beautiful. She
is fully house-trained and loves to play with her chew toys. And in
case you are wondering about those shaved patches on her skin, they
were infected and treated cuts that are now all better. Looking at
Josie's photos, how could anyone resist this pup with such an
adorable, goofy doggy grin?

Zep is a 7-to-10-year-old rat-terrier mix who came to SARG after being
found as a stray in Anderson County. He is a funny, quirky, chatty
little guy who is what we call in rescue an "easy keeper." He
is almost the perfect dog and no trouble at all. He is housetrained and
doesn't bother anything at all in the house. He likes to go for walks
but does not need to go all that far nor all that fast. He's more
interested in checking out the scene. He rides well in the car and is
always ready to go. He does like to "talk" to you while he is
in the backseat. We think he is asking if we can go by Dairy Queen for a
pup cup. (Yes, Dairy Queen will give out a "pup cup" of
vanilla ice cream.) He will let you know when someone new comes into the
house, but he settles down quickly and will soon be up on his haunches
being cute. He does that, a lot. We are not quite sure why he does it,
but he does it quite a bit along with some grunts, like he is trying to
tell you something. The foster home thinks he is one very special guy
who is very deserving of a great home. He does not ask for much: some
cushy dog beds, good food, some walks and a little bit of attention. He
gets along fine with other dogs and would probably be OK with older
kids. At adoption events he has completely ignored cats.

Happy Tails -- Dogs Adopted or Pending
Charles Dean is an 11-year-old miniature poodle. He was used
for breeding and then discarded when he was no longer useful.
A kind individual rescued him from being euthanized, had him
neutered, and asked SARG to help find him the loving home he
has never had. He had to have all his teeth removed, but he
is learning to live in a foster home where he is quickly catching
on to housetraining. He will come with things his foster mom has
bought for him -- his bed, food, jammies, belly bands, and toy.
So far, he still wears a belly band indoors to prevent marking.
He is an adorably cute little guy who is ready to live his best
years with someone who will love and take care of him.

Looking for a smart, well mannered, sweet dog to add to your family?
If so, Abram's your boy! Abram is a black Lab and border collie mix
and is approximately four years old. He knows several commands and
is very obedient. Abram loves spending time outdoors, taking sunbaths,
going for long rides in the car, visiting the local dog park, and going
for walks or runs -- just whatever you prefer. But he is also partial
to hanging out with the family inside. He is a perfect gentleman and
does not jump on the furniture or even beg for your dinner! Abram has
stayed with a family where there are children and other family pets.
He is everyone's friend -- including the cat! Abram is currently the
Guest Ambassador at a hotel in downtown Knoxville where his foster
mom works. Abram needs a home with a fenced yard, a warm bed, and
lots of love. Abram has been neutered, has all of his vaccinations,
and is ready for his forever family. Can you be the family he has
been waiting for? If you think you might be, feel free to call or
email any time. A home inspection will be required -- after all,
Abram is a very special fella!

Rocky weighs about 40 pounds and is 9 years old. He loves to go for
walks and car rides and has plenty of energy to go on hikes or play fetch.
He gets along with other dogs and cats and is housetrained. He knows
several commands -- someone has taken time with him in his past to train
him. Rocky has a very sweet disposition and just wants to be loved.

Judd is a mature little guy who just wants to spend quality time with
you. He was given up after his owners had to move to assisted living.
He is well mannered, calm and affectionate. He has mastered the doggie
door. He fits in nicely with other dogs and requires very little.
Treat him like the treasure he is and this sweet boy will return the
love many times over. He would be perfect for anyone who would enjoy
a low-key, loving lap dog as a loyal companion.

Zoe is about 2 years old. We think she is Chihuahua/pug with maybe
something else mixed in. She came from a home with a mom who loved her
dearly but was no longer able to take care of her. Up until she came to
her foster home, her life was spent inside, usually on her mom's lap.
She weighs about 15 pounds and is full of energy. She enjoys playing
with her toys, of which she has many. She still has some puppy in her,
but when it comes to nap time she loves to curl up in a lap for a
cuddle. She has an older foster sister, a Jack Russell/Chihuahua, and
she gets along great with her. They share toys, water and sometimes food
without too much friction. She is still getting used to being outside
and sometimes is scared when the wind blows. She jumps on occasion when
a leaf moves. She is doing extremely well with house-training. She will
let you know when she needs to go, which is usually right after she
eats. She is also trained to go on a pee pad when there is no one to let
her out. Zoe is used to being in a kennel during the day and that is
where she prefers to sleep and take her toys to keep them away from her
sister. She is still learning to walk on a leash and ride in a car. At
present we are sticking with putting her in a kennel for trips. She is
sweet and cuddly and fun to watch at play.

Honey is a young Chihuahua mix who wants someone to love and snuggle
with. She's about 1½ years old and weighs 10 pounds. She is a
bit timid now, but we believe she will shine when she finds her forever
home and feels secure. She is named for her personality -- she loves to
be picked up and held and is going to be someone's loyal and loving

Suzie is a Basset hound mix about 4 years old. She is laid-back
and not overly active, but she does like to follow her nose, as
any hound does, and we believe she would do best in a home with
a fenced yard. We also would like to find her a home without small

Pepper is a male Shih-tzu. He is a cute little guy who weighs
just under 10 pounds and is about 4 years old.

Little Buddy is a 15-pound, 4-year-old, possible Chihuahua/terrier mix.
He was surrended to SARG when his owner was no longer able to care for
him. He had been in residence with his owner at an assisted living
center. He is a calm little boy who definitely loves attention. He
quickly picked up the doggie door at his foster home and has decided
that playing with his foster brother is fun. Buddy is a fairly calm and
quiet little guy who's a delight to have around. He likes to go for
walks and have some time in the sunshine. Buddy has adjusted very well
to being around other dogs and would probably be fine as either an only
dog or having a friend or two around. He is housetrained and has not
bothered anything in the house and has not really shown much interest in
toys. Buddy is ready to find his new home and walking partner.
