    Lola was taken in by an elderly couple after she had been hanging around a grocery store parking lot for several weeks. They contacted HHS and asked us for help to find her a home. We think Lola is a terrier mix, estimated at 4 years old and she weighs about 20lbs. She gets along good with other dogs, does wonderful around cats and is sweet with kids. Lola is housebroken and will tell you when she has to go out, she walks good on a leash and sleeps in a crate at night; Lola is affectionate and likes to be on your lap or right next to you at all times . She likes to go for rides in the car and she loves to look out the window; a bench in ... (Read More)front of the window would be one of her wishes. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-08-00148Olivia (female)

Feist Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Olivia was surrendered to the shelter in Ripley TN. She was adopted and brought back about a month later. I pulled her from the shelter. I got her spayed and fully vetted. She is negative for heart worms. I had adopted locally. Her adopter had a hospital stay and was sick still when she got home and asked to return her. I can tell you I was told that she barks to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and that she went to the bathroom in the house. When I had her before and again now I have not had any issues with her going to the bathroom in the house. It has been very cold here and when I do not let the fosters outside she ... (Read More)will go on a potty pad. She does not potty in her crate. She was waking up early around 6 am and waking the other dogs so I used a muzzle on her for 2 days only when she started barking in the middle of the night. It has been 3 days and she has not done it again. I want to make sure the family that adopts her knows any issues and are positive that she will be a good fit. She is a very sweet and loving dog. Her favorite thing to do is to snuggle up to you on the couch. She is potty trained and crate trained. I think she should be crated at night as she is now. She is high energy and loves attention but is also content with about 2 hours of play time 2 to 3 times a day. I do have an adoption application for the perspective adopters. I want to make sure that the adopters expectations fit with what Olivia can offer as a furever pet. I will always take her back but I do not want to put her through the back and forth. If you are interested please call or text nine01three78seven68four. (Less)

Feist Mix    Age: Puppy

    Avalanche is a very loving blue heeler, foxhound, and feist mix(may have other blood in him as well).He loves to run and play and just be your best friend. I own both of his parents and has one of his other siblings(who is up for adoption as well)(one sister who is fixed).His birth was not a planned one and I can't afford the food to feed all of them, so I'm giving other people the chance to enjoy the company of both of these puppies. They are outside dogs who are black and white with a little brown. need a lot of room to run preferably a farm. FREE to GOOD home.Please only serious offers. Haven't had him around dogs that are not mine. ... (Read More)please contact me at (Less)

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.
