Rescue Me ID: 16-11-14-00197Big Ern (male)

Feist Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Meet Big Ern -- an 8-lb. precious, sweet-spirited Chihuahua/Feist/Pug (?) mix -- he is approximately 5 years old and incredibly loving/sweet. He loves to snuggle/cuddle with his humans, and is incredibly smart -- loves to play fetch and tug 'o war, going for walks, and snuggling in your lap. He is good with older children (age 10+), but not any younger (he can get snappy). He needs to be in an only dog home, as he definitely gets sassy/aggressive with other dogs. He's not a big fan of thunderstorms or fireworks and barks when alerted by loud noises and other dogs. His owners rescued him about 4 years ago, and have thoroughly enjoyed his ... (Read More)company - he is so incredibly sensitive/loving, but he just doesn't get along with the other fur babies in his home/neighborhood. And sadly, with his current owners' busy schedules/baby in the house, they just cannot give him the attention/consistency/love that he deserves. He is potty trained and fully vetted -- neutered, vaccinated, HW tested, micro-chipped, current HW/Flea protection, and current on shots. We would like to find him a loving forever home. We do NOT want him to fall into the wrong hands. We want to make sure that he has the best possible home, is safe and well-loved. Thank you. (Less)

    What do say about this cute little guy? He is adorable, loving, playful and amazing!

    Gavin- Feist Mix- Adult- Male- located at the Carroll County Humane Society, McKenzie, TN (West TN) 731-352-9950 Gavin is a super cute little man dog with a sad sack story. He and his friend George and what may or may not be their mother Old Lady Gwen were found in a field with a bag of food. They were in the MIDDLE OF NOWHERE and this family of dogs would not have lasted long given the coyotes in the area. Gavin is a sweet little guy who was distrustful of people at first, but he warmed up to a lap really quickly. We were shocked that he was heartworm negative and he has been vaccinated. It is not a requirement that these two boys stay ... (Read More)together but there is a discount for the pair. We are estimating Gavin to be about 8 years old based on this teeth.

    George- Feist Mix- Adult- Male- located at the Carroll County Humane Society, McKenzie, TN (West TN) 731-352-9950 George is a cute little fella with a sad sack story. He and his BFF Gavin and what we think may or may not be his mother Old Lady Gwen were left in field with a bag of food. They would not have made it long because they were in THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE and were crawling in fleas and just sad, sad, sad. George looks to be a super old man, but based on his teeth, he is about 5 years old. He is a sweet little guy with an odd-looking face because of a unique color pattern across his eyes. He was initially very shy of people and ... (Read More)probably had good reason to be, but he warmed up to a lap REALLY quickly. George is heartworm negative, current on his vaccines and has been neutered. George's older appearance will make it very hard for him to find a home and while he can be adopted away from Gavin, we will give an adoption disount for the pair. Please open your heart to a little guy who has had a pretty rough go and deserves to have a decent home. (Less)

Feist 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, Heartworm Positive 

    OH MR. PEANUT is looking for his forever family!!!!!!! Is it you??? Mr. Peanut is being cared for by the Carroll County Humane Society in McKenzie, TN (West TN) 731-352-9950 Mr. Peanut is the cutest little pocket pit in the history of pocket pits. His other breeding is supposed to be a fiest and that may be accurate but it certainly accounts for his size. He only weighs 22 pounds and is a little guy with the most wonderful socially awkward personality. He is stupid friendly and runs around like 'I love all the things but I am not sure what I am supposed to be doing with all the things.' He is great with other dogs, has never met a ... (Read More)stranger, and is just a great little sweet dog. He is timid when he hears loud voices and we suspect there was lots of yelling and shouting in his previous home because any loud voice sends him army crawling to his bed where he hunkers and waits for reassurance that all is right with the world. This is a great little dog who will make a wonderful family pet. Mr. Peanut is heartworm negative, current on his vaccines and is neutered. He is an awesome dog! His adoption fee is $100.00 (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Ella, we really aren't sure what breed Ella is. She kind of looks like a mini Rottweiler, she weighs in at 26 pounds. She's very sweet and came to us after a tornado hit her home.

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.

lnteresting Feist Trivia Low-Cost Tennessee Spay & Neuter Clinics
    George Washington mentioned Feists in his diary. Feists may be the offspring of Native American dogs and the purebred dogs of English American colonists. Feists have been kept since the 1600s. Abraham Lincoln mentioned feists in a poem he wrote.
