Dogs Available for Adoption
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 a have 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.

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
When you meet Jody, she smiles and runs to say "hello"
as if she had been just waiting for you all her life. She loves
everyone -- kids, dogs, even cats! She seems to have plenty of
energy, but her favorite spot is next to her person. Jody is about
4 years old and weighs around 30 pounds. She is being treated for
some skin irritation that was caused by fleas. We think she is a

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.

Doodles is a small female terrier mix. She looks like a silky terrier,
or she could be a mix of Yorkie and another small breed.
Doodles is about 2 years old and weighs around 12 pounds; her front
legs are a good bit bowed. She belonged
to a lady who suffered a stroke and had to give her up, and she
has been handed off a few times and now found her way to SARG.
She seems fine with other animals and likes to lap-sit and play.

Stitch is a male purebred and registered Lakeland terrier. He is 4 years
old as of May, 2019. We are looking for some specific conditions
in his forever home. He needs to have an active person to help him
expend his boundless energy -- someone who likes to go for walks and
will play with him. He also needs a fenced yard and room to run and
play -- he would not be suited to apartment living. He also needs to
be the only pet ... no cats, dogs, or small children. He is very active
but also likes to cuddle with his person at night.

Gauge is a German shepherd who has had some health issues that required
multiple surgeries during the time he has been with SARG. Fortunately,
it was during one of his hospital stays that he met the vet student who
has decided to give him his forever home. He is doing well now and
is clearly very happy with his new family.
Nayla is an 80-pound boxer mix full of youthful energy and sweetness.
Her foster dad has house-trained and leash-trained her. She loves going
on walks, playing fetch, and visiting the dog park, as well as playing
with her foster siblings (both big and small) She is very
people-oriented and wants to be by your side or, better yet, in your lap
whenever possible. She is a quick learner and wants to please her
humans. Her size and young energy will require a person or family who
can provide space and plenty of daily exercise time. In return she will
be your fun, loving, and loyal forever friend.

Tracey is a 4-year-old Chihuahua mix. Her foster mom says: If I had to
describe Tracey in one word, it would be "enthusiastic." She's
very outgoing and is enthusiastic about everything: food, play, love, cuddles,
walks. She does everything with gusto. At the same time, she is very loving
and absorbs strokes like a sponge. She doesn't stay on your lap very long,
but will sit very happily next to you or on you, if you are lying down. She
does have a mind of her own sometimes, but, again, it's because she is so
eager to do something. She is housetrained, but it's good to go by her schedule:
she needs to be taken out shortly after waking. She also understands puppy pads.
It's handy to have a couple lying around in case you're out too long. She gets
along very well with other dogs and would do well in a family with another dog.
She and my dog play like crazy!

Ahoy mates! Petey, or Petey the one-eyed pirate, as his foster mother
likes to call him, is a 7-year-old, 22-pound corgi mix of adorableness
and sweetness. He is completely housetrained, calm, quiet, perfect on a
leash, doesn't chew or shed, and is wonderful with everyone he meets.
He gets along with children, other dogs, cats, and maybe even other
pirates! His only issue is that he only has one eye, but that doesn't
seem to bother him at all. In fact, to pirate lovers, it makes him even
more appealing. And by the time you get him, his cone of shame will
have been removed and you can dress him in a cute pirate outfit.

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

Gracie is an 11-year-old, spayed Dachshund. She weighs 19 pounds. SARG
rescued her from a local veterinary office where her owner intended to
have her put to sleep. She was wetting in the house a lot and was being
treated for UTI. However, it turned out, once our vets examined her, that her
bladder was filled with bladder stones. Since her surgery to remove the
stones, she has not had one accident in her foster home, and she lets
her foster mom know when she needs to go out. Gracie also had a dental,
and a few teeth were removed. She is on a special diet for the bladder
stones, and she will eat moist and dry food. She gets along very well
with both of the 70-plus-pound dogs in her foster home and is sweet,
loving, wags her tail all the time, and likes to give kisses.She also
loves walks and car rides. Gracie will lie down with you as long as
you'd like, but she does have a doggie bed and sleeps in it all night long
without a peep.

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.
