Dogs Available for Adoption


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 beautiful markings.

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 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.

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 implies.

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
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!
