Her eyes are truly the window to her soul. She is simply a beautiful little girl who loves her person. She is shy at first but warms up quickly. She gets along great with kids and other dogs. Nala has not been cat tested but can be if needed. She is a docile girl and loves to just be close to you. She is perfect. Nala is a terrier mix and is around 6 months old. She is up to date on vaccinations, spayed, heart worm negative and on monthly preventative. All this little girl needs ... (Read More)is a family of her own.

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-08-00318Chandler (male)

Feist Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chandler is around 10 months old and is a chocolate feist/lab/terrier mix puppy, weighs around 35 pounds, and even has partial webbed paws. He came into the rescue a few weeks back. Here is his story. We received a phone call from a panicked woman whose husband's cows were getting chased by dogs. She stated there was around 10 dogs and some had even got one cow down. One of the ladies with the rescue immediately made the trip out to the farm as the farmer wanted to just have the dogs removed if possible, but could not do nothing as this was his income and he had to feed his family. These dogs were not his and were a neighbor's dog who ... (Read More)refused to do anything. Chandler's original owner actually told the farmer to just shoot them (He only threw out dog food and did not help socialize any of these dogs who constantly reproduced). There is no Animal Control in this county to enforce a leash law or to assist in this situation. We were able to catch four puppies and Chandler. Chandler was scared but he wanted to be loved on. He was trapped into a kennel and never tried to escape. We think he knew that he would live to see another day. We immediately brought him home and started working with him. At first he would just lay down when you put a leash on him. He would not budge and would just lay there whining. He spent a week in the kennel getting adjusted and being quarantined. After that week, he started to blossom. I would walk to the kennel and he would just cry with excitement. He would hold his butt up in the air, put his head on the ground and just wag his tail like crazy. He has been spending some time inside with his new foster mom now. Chandler has improved while walking on the leash. He is comfortable around the house but going to new locations is still scary to him sometimes, but as long as you are there he is fine. He would not enter the house in the beginning and would have to be carried inside. He is now running into the house on his own which was a huge step for him. He also loves all his foster siblings, who are definitely helping him to come out of his shell. He has a comfort zone and doesn't like to venture from it but will if you want him to. When we go outside he doesn't like to leave the back porch or the backyard. He loves staying right by his person. He loves everyone he meets but will wait to be greeted. He loves his Great Dane sister, JRT brother, Hound sister, and two 8 week old puppy foster siblings. He does not mind the horses at his foster mom's house either. He hasn't had an accident while inside the house and is crate trained. He is heartworm negative, neutered, up to date on shots, and on monthly preventatives. His adoption fee is $150 but depending on location of adopter transportation fee would apply to adopter. (Less)

Animal ID: 15-03-16-00312Riley (female)

Feist Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Feist Mix ~ Adult ~ Female ~ Small~ located at the Carroll County Humane Society McKenzie, TN~ Riley is a cute little dog with a big sad story. She showed up super pregnant at a construction site and it appears that she was dumped there - probably because she was prego. A kind person called a lot of kind people trying to get her some help, and a series of kind people stepped forward and Riley is a lucky girl for it. She went into foster care and had 6 beautiful puppies who have now been weaned. Riley is terribly shy with strangers, has special fear of men, and is afraid of loud noises. But, once she knows who you are, she LOVES you and only ... (Read More)wants to sit in your lap and tell you that you are in face the best thing in the history of the planet. Riley needs a home without small kids only because loud noises scare her and she will probably want to hide most of the time. She is great with other dogs - intimidated by them - but could benefit from the company of a friendly mellow dog who could help her come out of her shell. Riley is about 1.5 years old, 12 pounds, and heartworm negative. She is current on her vaccines and will be spayed before adoption. Please open your heart to a super sweet but sad little dog in need!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Feist in Tennessee
    Feist Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee if they match your IifestyIe. The Feist is a small dog bred in the U.S. for hunting small game. The Feist is not a purebred and its characteristics vary widely from dog to dog. Feists are known for their ability to tree squirrels and other small animals. Feists are typically high spirited dogs; their appearance and temperament often leads them to be mistaken for Jack Russell Terriers.
