Adoptable Dogs

If you have a pet that you would like to have adopted, please send us the following information. Pet's name, sex, breed, Age (approximate birth date), description, whether spayed or neutered, whether up-to-date on inoculations, housebroken, general personality, how well the animal gets along with other animals and children, whether or not the animal has been de clawed, and whether or not the animal is an indoor pet or outdoor pet, and how to reach you. Send this information along with any other information, as well as photos to mewoof@bellsouth.net. 

I always prefer to adopt an older dog simply because they are calmer, are over their chewy tendencies, and someone else has usually house trained them for you!!! Carol West - RCHS Webmaster

Angie Angie Angie

Angie is a female,  Boxer mix with Brindle color; born on April 10, 2011.  Angie is powerful little dog that loves toys and stuffed animals and a comfy bed. She loves to have her belly rubbed. As a young dog she was not able to be around other dogs so she hasn't learned her place in the pack and for that reason, would be best in a single dog house or one with a larger dog she can't dominate. She definitely should not be around small children as she would knock them down. She chases cats - so cats are out too. She needs a lot of training and would need to be with someone willing to train her and also be able to handle her as she can pull you around easily. She needs a large fenced yard as she loves to run - a must as she will take off without a fence. She is inside most of the day and all night. She is crate trained and housebroken.

Dumbo Dumbo Dumbo

Dumbo is a male tan-and-white Feist, 8 – 10 years old. He is a delight! He's the perfect sized dog - 18 pounds - small enough to carry if necessary, but not too small to get underfoot. He gets along beautifully with both cats and dogs. His favorite activities are napping, eating, playing gently with his toys, and just resting comfortably in his dog bed. He is shy at first, but when he gets to know you will lift his little paw up to ask for affection. Dumbo is used to staying in his kennel when home alone, and will alert you if he needs to go outside by scratching on the door when you are home. Best to feed alone since he is protective over his food bowl.

Heidi2 Heidi2 Heidi2

Heidi2 is a female brindle-and-white pit bull/ boxer mix, born on March 25, 2014. She is long legged and athletic. She loves to run and can jump very well. She is a loving dog who really wants a home. She is sweet natured and wants to be a good dog. She has not received much attention in her short life and is currently working on her manners. Heidi2 is still very much a puppy. After just a few days in our foster care, she is much better at sitting quietly for hugs and petting. After a short time of hijinks, she settles down to walk very sweetly with us on her daily walks. She pays attention to training well. She is good with other dogs and has ignored my cats completely. She is rambunctious and large. Would not be good around very small children due to lack of manners. Heidi2 will probably be a medium to large dog with a need for exercise. The adoption fee is $175. AS

Rocket Rocket Rocket

Rocket is a tri-color male Shih Tzu puppy, born on January 15, 2014. . Right now he weighs about 8 1/2 pounds. He is a happy and healthy little guy now, but he had a very hard start. He was born in a puppy mill owned by some very hard hearted people in Rutherford County. His puppy mill was infested with mites and he had terrible sarcoptic mange. He was covered with nasty, painful sores and had little hair. He also had an infected injury to his right eye which had not received medical attention. Finally he had a hernia which had not been repaired. Since he has come into RCHS's care, he has been cured of his mange. HIs skin is healthy and does not hurt anymore. He hair is pretty and growing back. He had to have his right eye removed surgically, so he will always be blind on that side. However, he has recovered from this and he is a happy puppy and his infection is cured. Finally, he will be neutered soon and his hernia will be repaired. My man Rocket did not know what grass was when he arrived at my home because he had always been kept in a tiny dirt pen. Now he loves to play on the grass and go for little dog walks. He did not know what toys were either; now he has a basket full and he loves to carry them and sleep with them. He is doing well with his crate and house training. He does not soil his crate at night and has been good in the house if taken out when he asks. Rocket is very sweet-natured and friendly. He lives in a house with other dogs and a cat. He likes to have another little dog to play with and does not bother the cat. Rocket is happy to be out of that terrible place and with kind people. He would love to have a permanent family of his own. The adoption fee is $300.
