Rescue Me ID: 17-08-12-00099Elsie (female)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Elsie was born about June 15, 2013 and weighs about 12 lbs. She is cute as can be and just as sweet, but is a bit shy at first meeting. It doesn't appear her life has been all fun and games up to now, but we are hoping to turn that around for her when one of our wonderful adopters falls in love. Elsie's teeth were just horrible and very infected. Dr. Rasnake removed 22 teeth and a round of good antibiotics and she's so much happier and healthy. Dogs with no teeth are able to eat dry food, it seems their gums harden, but a little canned a day may be of benefit in his future. Sadly, her fur/skin was in no better condition...fleas were ... (Read More)crawling around a full body of mats and she had been in this condition long enough that she had a secondary skin bacterial infection. Her condition was so poor that the vet called to be sure we wanted to invest this much money into her. We asked if she was a nice dog, we were told she was and we told her to please make her well as we are certain our wonderful supporters will help us with her much needed medical costs. There is no need to worry a potential adopter since the skin is healed, fur growing back, and there are not many teeth to worry about future dentals. That is one way to look on the bright side! But then...upon spay surgery two calcium oxalate bladder stones were felt and they had to be removed. Pretty little Elsie would have surely died within the next year if these stones had not been removed and they must have been SO painful, poor thing...her teeth and her bladder!!! Bladder stones are often caused from untreated UTIs so her new owner will need to be watchful. In addition, it is best that she is fed a special food to help prevent any more stones from forming such as Hill's Science Diet CD or an equivalent Royal Canin both available at vet offices. So, after healing from ALL of this Elsie has a wonderful new life ahead of her as soon as someone sees her pretty face and falls in love! This is all we know as the staff at the high kill southern shelter doesn't like to ask questions since the reason for surrender is so often financial and they feel it is embarrassing so we will be learning as we go and so will you.

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-12-00097Lenny (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    The 'L' Ruby puppies were born about April 11, 2017 and will probably weigh about 60 lbs. but we are truly guessing at breed and ultimate size. The 'L' puppies are just really nice fur kids that have been a delight since the day they arrived. They are lovable, hugable, and very human oriented. They wrestle and play, have a good time in life and always get along. Like all families it is time for them to find their own new homes with new families. This is all we know so far as the staff at the southern shelter doesn't ask any questions as the reason for relinquishment is so often financial and they feel it is embarrassing to the owners. ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-03-00105Vanilla Bean (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Vanilla Bean was born about August 17, 2016 and may top out in the 30 lb. range and the vet clinic in the south thought Boxer mix, but I'm really leaning in the Pointer direction with all that gorgeous ticking on her torso. BUT, truly we are squinting and guessing as far as breed and ultimate size so if you want something exact these pups may not be for you. Vanilla does love her baths! She stands still and enjoys the entire experience. This is all we know so far. The staff in the high kill southern shelter do not ask questions upon entry as they feel it is embarrassing to the owners leaving their pets behind as the reason is often ... (Read More)financial in this poverty stricken coal mining town. So we will be learning as we go and so will you. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Cocoa was born about September 2, 2016 and will top out about 55 lbs. She is simply, stunningly, gorgeous! If you don't like wearing fur this dog is not for you! And, please, understand she acts more like a weirdo Husky than she does a Chocolate Lab. Huskies are unique and if you are interested in our Cocoa please do a bit of research. She is wonderful with the other dogs and with all of us. She adores romping and playing with the other dogs and most of all she LOVES to chase birds from tree to tree! This is all we know so far and will be learning as we go. The southern high kill pound feels it is embarrassing to ask questions as ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-20-00063Ziggy (male)

Pomeranian Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Those Life Changes Got In The Way! Ziggy was born about August 27, 2008 and weighs about 9 lbs. He is with us because the young lady that raised him took him through all her life changes...until now. She moved into an apartment that doesn't allow dogs. Off Craig's list he came and into the safety of Joyful Rescues - he's a lucky boy! Ziggy isn't perfect and can be a bit protective, your typical small breed/terrier kind of trait. He is good with kids 10 and above and great with other dogs. He's actually been extremely good here with all of us and found the dog door easily watching everyone else even though he's much smaller than most. ... (Read More)Ziggy is house trained, good on leash and fine in the car. We here he has some wanderlust so a fenced yard or a leash at all times will be necessary. Even though fine with other dogs we are told he would do better as an only dog as he adores one on one attention and is a major snuggler! Even though they said house trained we just like to warn that sometimes these little dogs benefit from a potty floor pad when they just can't hold it any longer. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-20-00062Cuddles (male)

Bichon Frise Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I really love my humans and dog friends! Cuddles was born about October 9, 2009 and weighs 17 lbs. He has been wonderful with all of us and is great with children. He came with a dog buddy so it would be nice for him to live with another dog or to have a human around much of the time. We are told that they both would poop in the house at times, but they are here because their human didn't have enough time to give them a proper life so we are hoping that won't be a problem in a new home with a little work at first. He is good on leash and great in a car. Cuddles will hang with you while you are outside doing your chores and he is so cute ... (Read More)that when his new foster mom walks in the room he does a dance and coos. Cuddles has been to Cornell for skin issues we can discuss more of if someone is truly interested. Allergy testing was done and no allergens were found. Oddly enough we have seen little trouble in the 6 weeks he's been here. We wanted to give him a chance to settle in before writing this description to see what we found out about him and yet we are unsure what to say on this topic. Anyway, he is an amazingly loving boy that is going to make someone very happy. Update: His skin did flare up and he had awful red spots and was chewing out his fur. Well, with all the vet work he had no use in us taking him to the vet so we decided to try something easy - Convenia! It is a two week injectable antibiotic. We did it once and he improved, we did it again in two week and continued improvement, then it lasted a month and he has just one little spot. We are giving one more. This one drug seems to be solving the problem and he is growing back new fur on all the old red spots. He is comfortable, really happy, and it seems that he is also very appreciative! So, as for the future...well, perhaps if this is given a few more times the problem will be completely gone OR perhaps this will have to be done on an as needed basis throughout the rest of his life. There sure are worse things and more expensive meds that many dogs need on a daily basis. It is a subq injectable so a vet may be able to give you enough for a couple doses so that you can nip any 'spots' in the bud before they get inflamed. Other than this he is a healthy little guy that has had about every test done known to man. (Less)

Miniature Pinscher Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I Win Sweetest Ever! Brody was born about May 28, 2009 and weighs about 15 lbs. He is the NICEST Min Pin ever to walk through our doors. He adores his humans and will follow you everywhere. He's fabulous with the other dogs and he's was with very young children and did great. He loves a nice lap to relax in and he loves going for car rides. He was adopted by a young man for his father and when the father passed away the son couldn't keep Brody as he rented an apartment that didn't allow pets. So, Brody got to come stay with us for awhile and we sure fell head over heals quickly - you will too! We do want to warn that these tiny dogs ... (Read More)sometimes struggle with house training throughout their lives and may well benefit from having a potty floor pad handy when they just can't hold it any longer. Small dogs are not just shrunken big dogs, they have their own quirks (Less)

Foxhound Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Anastasia was born about January 9, 2016 and weighs about 27 lbs. Anastasia is a snuggler and she ADORES water! She uses the doggie door with ease, but we like to let you know that with the next move and an adjustment to not having a dog door that you may have some house training work ahead. Anna, as we call her, adores her humans and she is wonderful with the other dogs. She is BUSY and has stuff to do in life. This isn't a girl that is going to lounge around napping in a crate all day. She needs a fun dog and a safe place to race and race she does. If there are kids they need to be sturdy. Deciding on breed is difficult here, ... (Read More)but we truly feel this girl may well be part (although shrunken) Greyhound - she moves like one. This girl is possibly the smartest dog here! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-13-00059Jack W (male)

Jack Russell Mix   

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I'm Really Kind of Sweet! Jack was born about December 22, 2004 or in 2008....and he weighs about 10 lbs. So, he was picked up stray and his owner was located by his rabies tag, but they had no interest in bailing him out from dog control so we did. This poor little old man needed a safe place to fall! OK, the age thing, well the owner told the town that he was 7, but the vet that boosted his rabies shot for us feels he is about 11 so his birthday will be up to you! He is really sweet and loves to snuggle in your lap. He is just wonderful with the other dogs here, but struggled when he went to another home, particularly with a Beagle ... (Read More)as there was some food aggression. He seldom says a peep which we just love, but maybe he can't hear well, we've not been able to determine that, but it is obvious that his eyes have some old age cloudiness so his eyesight isn't what it used to be. He doesn't care, he gets around just fine. He is good on leash and ok in a crate, but not sure why you would need one. We are so glad he is here with us and we know we are going to find him an excellent home for the rest of his life where someone will love him and never let him wander freely. Jack did well on our cat test, but the other home said he didn't like their cat - sometimes confusing. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-14-00105Kam (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I Weigh a WHOLE Five Pounds! Kam was born March 22, 2005 and weighs 5 lbs. She is as cute as can be, but is a bit on the nippy side. She will need some work on house training because she came from a puppy mill where she's been popping out puppies for pet store shelves all her life. Also, Chihuahua's struggle with house training anyway and often require potty pads or maybe a litter box. She's a doll that deserves a wonderful new life if you have a little patience to send her way.

Foxhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    As for Patches, he weighs about 60 lbs. and was born about May 30, 2010 and what a really nice boy he is! He is wonderful with other dogs and did fine on the ride here. He is not noisy and just really medium energy, he just seems to be thankful he is here. When patches arrived at the TN shelter he had an open wound on the top of his lower, front, leg and they thought they'd have to amputate, but thankfully they found a foster home for him to have some time to see if it would heal on it's own. So, not so thankfully, this foster home allowed him to be picked up running around on his own again and he ended up back at the shelter. The ... (Read More)foster family never let them know he was missing and failed to return several messages - nice.... So, by this time he was healing nicely and now there is a scar, but he uses the leg just fine - lucky boy. This is all we know so far, we'll be learning as we go. (Less)
