Betsy is a small beagle female. We think that she and Maggie
are sisters. Betsy is about a year old, weighs 21 pounds, and
is sweet and friendly. She is also a typical beagle who puts
her nose to the ground and follows it.

Maggie is a beagle who, like her sister Betsy, has a great,
friendly personality. She is about a year old and weighs 15
pounds and loves to follow a scent. Both these girls have

Joey is a Yorkie mix weighing in at just under 10 pounds He is a
very young 1-year-old dog. He still has a lot of puppy energy, but
he loves to cuddle next to you or lie in your lap. He is not
aggressive toward other dogs, but his play still includes the
puppy nipping. Our guess is that he had no indoor experience
where he came from. He had to be carried over the threshold
several times and was quite startled when the TV was turned on.
He will follow you around, as the saying goes, like a puppy dog!
He is going to make someone a very lovable, devoted companion.

Alice is a Chihuahua mix; she weighs about 10 pounds and is
approximately 2 or 3 years old. She is very athletic and loves
to be outside, although she hasn't been walked on a leash yet
by her foster family. At the moment, she is still a special-needs
dog. She is very loving and wants all the strokes and attention
she can get. In return, she is totally devoted. At the same time,
she is timid and fearful. Each new person or circumstance frightens
her and it takes time and consistency to gain her trust. All that
we know about her previous home is that she was taken in by a family
member after her owner died, and she was then turned in to a shelter
because other dogs in the home had attacked her. Alice is house-trained
and loves to go outside. She learned to use the doggie door very
quickly, and her foster mom is working with her on "come."
Although she seems to trust her foster mom, she still sometimes backs
away. Over time, she will probably become more confident, but it will
definitely take time. She rarely lets her foster mom out of her sight
and gives a shriek of joy when she returns to the house, even when she's
only been gone 10-15 minutes. Alice's foster mom likes her and believes
she is totally worth the effort, but she will need a family who will
work patiently to give her confidence and gain her trust.

Chance is a cute little 10-pound Chihuahua/Dachshund mix thought
to be about 6 years old. He is new to his foster home and still getting
acquainted with his surroundings, but he appears to be getting along with
the 4 other small dogs and the cat in the home. He has been seen playing
chase in the back yard with one of his doggy foster brothers. Inside,
he likes to snuggle with his foster mommy or nestle under a nice warm
blanket. He appears to be housetrained, although has had a couple of
accidents. He has not been observed around children at this point.

Happy Tails -- Dogs Adopted or Pending
Say hello to Charlotte! She is a 20-pound, two-year-old, hound-mix
bundle of sweetness and spunk. Calm and affectionate, great on a
leash, and fine with other dogs, cats, children etc. etc. She is
crate-trained and doing beautifully with house-training. She also
doesn't shed, chew or bark -- well, most of the time! A perfect
all-around canine companion. And how can anyone resist those
soulful, big brown eyes?

THELMA AND LOUISE
Thelma and Louise are miniature pinscher sisters who are 6 or 7 years old.
They weigh about 8 and 10 pounds each, and as they are bonded with each
other, we would very much like to find them a home together. They seem
to be typical min pins -- alert and responsive to their environment and
friendly with people. They can be active but also like to settle down and
be held. As of 3/5/2020, they are in the process of being spayed and getting
any other needed care by the vet and should be ready for their new home soon.
We don't know much about their housetraining or relationship with cats or
children, as they haven't moved to a foster home yet.

Who is this little girl? Her name is Millie Sue; she is
around 14 weeks old as of January 10, 2020, and she weighs
in at 6½ pounds. She is probably part Chihuahua and
part Dachshund -- also known as a chiweenie. She would
be quite an addition to a family with older children. She
is playful, full of energy, happy, lovable, affectionate,
cuddly -- and extremely intellegent, which has made it easy
to train her. She is also sweet-natured and very athletic
and coordinated. Did we mention the fact that she's adorable,
fun, joyful and oh yes, sooo SOFT? After only a short time
this angel is almost potty trained, knows 7 commands, and
she learned to use the High Tech doggy door opener in her foster
home the first day. Millie is truly a remarkable animal and
will give you many years of happiness and enjoyment. She is
almost too good to be true. Her foster mom says she has never
seen anything like this precious baby girl.

sweet, friendly personality and is very active and playful.

Wanda is a small Chihuahua-mix female who loves to snuggle.

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?

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.

Zeppo 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.

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!
