Bessie Jo is an active and loving, 3-year-old coonhound/great Pyrenees
mix who is ready for a home to give her the attention she craves and
needs. Bessie is intelligent and determined, requiring an experienced
dog owner of working breeds. She is an excellent house dog and prefers
to be indoors by your side. In fact, she lets you know by tapping the
door with her paw. She is food-motivated and will work for treats!
Bessie Jo is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and housetrained.
Bessie's favorite activities include sleeping on the couch, barking at
squirrels, being cuddled, and sniffing everything. She absolutely LOVES
people! If you have visitors to your home, she makes sure to let them
know she loves them. Bessie is a big girl at 75 pounds and is not suited
for homes with young children due to her size and strong personality.
She likes to have her space while sleeping and has a low tolerance for
shenanigans such as ear and tail pulling. Ideally, she would be an only
dog because she wants all of your attention. She gets along with other
dogs well but prefers people. If in a multi-dog home, she would be best
with other dogs that are docile and willing to let her run the show. She
is food-possessive and does not share bones - she would need to be fed
in her own separate area. While outside, she needs monitoring because
she wants to explore. She has dug out of our 6-foot fence before, but
has not since we laid fencing on the ground to deter her. We have a
4-foot chain-link fence in the front of our back yard, which she has
never attempted jumping. She gets along and has cuddled with our 2 cats
that she's been around since she was a puppy. Bessie is a very special
girl and deserves to be in a home that can focus her drive in a positive
direction. Please email email@example.com if you can
give Bessie Jo a loving home suited to her needs.

BOOTS AND BRITCHES
Boots and Britches are two male long-haired domestic cats, neutered,
declawed, 5 years old, sweet but lonely. The owner passed away last
Sunday, and her wish was for them to be adopted together. Her brother
says they must go IMMEDIATELY, one way or another. The deceased owner
has had these two boys since kittens. It is
extremely urgent that these kitties find
a home right away. Please contact Sherma Elliott at cell number
(865)805-6259 or work (865)777-2275.
DOODLE BUG AND SCRAPPER
These are two playful and loving kitties. I have two outdoor male cats,
approximately one year old, that I need to find homes for because of
coyote invasion. Doodle Bug is grey and white, and Scrapper is grey tabby
and white. They have both been neutered and had their shots. I
have also put Revolution on them each month. I have raised them outside
from kittens. I would take them inside my home, but I have an older,
sick cat that would not tolerate them. I have tamed them to where they
love having their tummies petted as they sit on my lap. When my husband
fed them they rubbed up against his hand and legs. They are currently
boarded at the vet because of the coyote danger. Their mother was
recently killed, and I don't want the same thing to happen to them. They
are in urgent need of a home! Please contact me (Becky) by phone at
CONFETTI AND LULU
Confetti and Lulu have for years lived together with three small dogs in
a home where they were loved and cared for. They had two adult
caretakers who loved each other as well as their animal family.
Unfortunately, tragic events have forever changed this loving household,
beginning with the death of one caretaker two years ago and the
subsequent failing health of the other. This caretaker has been
hospitalized at the Veterans Hospital in Johnson City, TN for four
months. While he is fighting hard to recover and return home, the date
of his release remains uncertain. He has reached the decision that
attempts should be made to find new, loving homes for his sweet cats.
Both animals are healthy and up to date with inoculations and
topical flea/tick protection. They have been spayed and are thoroughly
litter-trained. It would be preferable if Lulu and Confetti could stay
together, but each deserves a loving home and if that can only be
accomplished by separation, then so be it. Please call Jackie Bernard at
(865)482-4532 if you are interested in providing a permanent home for
Lulu and/or Confetti.
CONFETTI is a smokey grey girl with gold flecks throughout her
fluffy coat. The gold flecks match her eyes and were the inspiration for
her name. She is very affectionate, both with her animal friends and her
human caregivers. She speaks softly and will only raise the volume when
confronted with a stressful situation (such as a forced entry into a cat
LULU was born with tuxedo markings and wears them proudly to this day.
Her black coat glistens and contrasts perfectly with her snowy markings
and golden eyes. She is a beautiful girl who takes a little time to warm
up to new humans but once she does, she is an excellent
conversationalist who tends to speak loudly and with feeling. She loves
it when you join her.
INKY AND BRITTTANY
Inky and Brittany are a bonded brother and sister pair of lab/hound
mixes who are 18 months old. They are fixed, housetrained, and
crate-trained. They are up to date on shots and vet visits. Inky is a
52-pound black male who never meets a stranger and loves food. Brittany
is a 48-pound tan female who loves to run and is a little more timid
until she gets to know someone. With a little training, she can overcome
her slight fear of people. We are seeking one home for this brother and
sister. They love to run and are in a house with three cats and children
from 8-15 years of age. Please contact Brett or Shona Ellis -
