Oak Ridge, TN
Dogs Available for Adoption
According to his former owner, Mac is one of the most
laid-back animals she has ever seen. He is about 10
years old and weighs about 15 pounds. He is active,
loves people, is good with children and other small
animals, including cats. However, he does not like
any dog that is larger than him. He is a former HABIT
dog and is easy-going, cuddly, and sometimes entertaining.
After all, how many dogs do you know that can dance?
He knows several commands such as "sit,"
"stay," "dance," and especially
"NO." He is house-trained, but he gets nervous
in new places so will need to be taken out or walked
frequently by new owners. Mac is definitely leash-trained
and loves walks. However, he hates going out in the rain
and is afraid of snow. He sleeps well at night but sometimes
snores, like the part-pug he is. He loves food and will
attempt to eat whatever he finds. He also loves to check
out small waste cans. Neither is an issue with supervision.
His only health issue has been allergies. Mac loves to
cuddle and be petted, and will make someone a wonderful

Pearl is an absolutely delightful and joyful little girl. She's
probably around 13 to 14 years old. Because of a thyroid issue
she was a little overweight when she arrived at her foster home.
With diet and exercise she is now not only looking great, she is
able to run and climb steps. She is easy-going, cuddly and
entertaining. She has made herself right at home with her
foster's three Chihuahuas. She sleeps in a bed in the office, and
there is never a peep out of her during the night. She is house-trained,
but on rainy days she chooses to use a puddle pad more often than not.
She loves the outdoors and foraging for food under the fruit trees.
She is a food thief and will not only eat her food, she will attempt
to eat the other dogs' food also. Not really an issue with supervision,
but mostly fun and entertaining to watch the action unfold. This
has improved over time with guidance. One of the most endearing
qualities about Pearl is that when she barks, she throws her head
back and her front paws leave the ground. Cute as can be. This little
girl will make someone a wonderful companion!

Jasper is absolutely a lap dog! He slept well in the crate with a
nice new dog bed the first couple of nights in his foster home. Now
he sleeps in his foster mom's bed. So far he’s been good with her
daughter. He has another dog bed close to her desk in her office,
so that he can sit near her during the day. He will scratch at her
legs when he wants to sit in her lap. She has built him a makeshift
steps off her one-step back porch to help him get to the ground.
He does have a few bursts of energy where he likes to play with
his small soft toys! He is a little hard of hearing, and his vision
isn’t what it used to be! He is a 13-year-old Shih Tzu. He has dry eye
and requires drops in his eyes daily. He currently
weighs 20 pounds, but he is on a diet to get some weight off of him.
He is doing better on going potty outside, but his new family
will need to continue working with him!!

Roman (aka Little Romeo) loves people and wants to be close. He
follows members of his foster family from room to room, stands or
sits on their laps, curls up beside them on the couch, or lies
in his nearby dog beds. He is a 9-year-old, chocolate, toy Poodle
who walks well on a leash, is agile (can climb, jump, run), rarely
barks except when excited, is very food-motivated, and loves to
sleep under the covers, snuggled up close to his humans. He is
house-trained but has had a few accidents, so his new family
will need to take him outside consistently. He takes one pill
twice a day for an enlarged heart and mild heart murmur. He is
thin but eating very well and gaining weight. Sometimes he does
not like to be picked up, and we do not believe he would do well
with small children. Roman is also not good with cats, but he has
lots of love to give to humans.

Gabbie is a 4½-year-old female, possibly a Chihuahua mix.
Her foster mom says she is a wiggleworm, loves the doggie door,
and is getting along with the other dogs in her foster home.
She is more people-oriented than dog-oriented and loves to
lap-sit with either her foster mom or dad.

Baxter is a one-to-two-year-old Great Pyrenees, and he will need
a home with a tall privacy-fenced yard. He is calm and easy-going.
Baxter shows no aggression to other animals. It would be best if he
goes to a home with no small children. Baxter seems to have had
some obedience training, and his foster family are trying to work with him.
Baxter walks well on a lead and is a great dog who deserves a great home.

Murphy is a small, very handsome terrier, around one year old.
He is very spunky, full of puppy
energy, and loves to play with toys. He likes kids and does well in
the home with only 2 accidents. He does like to get into small
trash cans, so it's best to either close the door or pick them up. He
sleeps in the bed with his foster family or on the couch at night.
His foster mom puts him in a crate when she leaves him alone.
Murphy will require lots of play time and stimulation. with lots
of toys to keep him busy! He loves rope toys. He does like to
gnaw on your fingers (a habit which his foster family are trying
to break), so he will need more work on stopping that behavior.
He has not been tested with another dog yet,

Anyone who meets this adorable pooch,immediately falls in love
with her. Introducing Shelly, a 19-pound, 2-year-old sheltie/yorkie
-- a shorkie bundle of joy who loves everyone she meets. Shelly
gets along well with other dogs and cats although we haven't
tested her with children yet. Shelly is so calm and low key, she
would probably be fine. She is totally housetrained, but we are
not sure about crate-training because her foster mother hasn't
needed to use a crate with her. Shelly loves to go on walks and
walks well on a leash, but she also just loves to sit on the
couch and relax and cuddle with her family. This sweet dog would
make a wonderful pet for any kind of family. Please help find her
a forever home.

Hi, Dog Lovers! Go on, resist this face if you can! This is Ferris,
our latest rescue guy. He is a small terrier mix who is relatively young
and really wants to be picked up and held -- he seems like a real
"people" dog and to like everybody. He's frisky, happy and
active. He is being treated for some skin issues right now, from a
bad case of fleas, and he is scheduled to be neutered soon. We don't
know much more right now, but we will find out more about his
personality and level of training once he is in a foster home.
