German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    PLEASE HELP THIS SENIOR LADY! Cleo is waiting at one of the shelters we assist and needs a foster or adoptive home ASAP. Hello everyone! My name is Cleo. I was taken to the shelter as a stray and no one ever came to pick me up and take me home with them. It seems that no one wants me which makes me very sad. Don't get me wrong; they are very nice to me at the shelter, but I keep seeing all the younger pups leave and say they are going to their forever home, but no one ever tells me I'm getting a family of my own. I am about 7 years old (as of 4-12-17) and weigh approximately 45 pounds. I am heartworm positive because no one ... (Read More)ever gave me any medicine to prevent me from getting them. The shelter ladies told me that if RARE finds a home for me, they will get treatment for me and it won't cost my new family anything. I'd say that's a pretty good deal. I am lonely and scared here. I want to have a home and a family of my own. I want someone to love me and care for me. I'm already 7 and haven't had a very good life. I hope that I am loved and cherished by someone before it is my time to cross to the Rainbow Bridge. I really like other dogs and get along great with them. So if you already have dogs, that's fine with me. I promise I'll be nice to them. The shelter staff wanted me to tell you that I am precious and am an absolute doll. If you can foster and/or adopt me, please contact RARE today. The shelter is very full and I need to find a home as soon as possible. **An application and home visit are required.

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-14-00316Jessa (female)

Anatolian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello there! My name is Jessa and I am approximately 1 year old (as of 4-19-17) and weigh about 40 pounds. I may weigh around 55 pounds when I finish growing. I am a beautiful (if I do say so myself) Anatolian Shepherd mix. I have had a hard time during my short life. I ingested some poison when I was a young puppy and it has done some damage to my kidneys. The doctor says I will be fine and can live a nice long life, but I will need special food to make sure my kidneys stay at healthy as possible. This food is kind of expensive; it's $50.00 a bag. I know that's a lot of money, but I'm a sweet girl and promise to be worth it. The ... (Read More)doctor also said that I might have some problems holding my urine when I get older, but there is medication for that and it's not very expensive. So, I guess you would call me a special needs girl. I am house trained and do great with other dogs and children. I am a sweet girl and would love to have a family to call my very own. Would you consider making my dreams come true? If you will consider giving a girl like me a forever home, please contact RARE today. **An application and home visit are required.

Azure can handle that task all on her own :) If you're looking for love, all wrapped up in a soft, gentle, blue-eyed beauty, Azure just might be the one for you. She gets along great with other cats and doesn't mind dogs at all. All she wants is someone to love her and a place too call home. If you ...

Animal ID: Max StaffieMax (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Puppy

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

    Hey guys and gals, I'm Max! I'm so happy to be here! I am about 1 year old American Staffordshire Terrier and I absolutely love people. I am currently in a wonderful foster home with my foster mom and dad and other dogs. I've also been around children and was very well mannered. I am great on leash and good around other dogs, especially with the ladies. I have had great success with my house training and in a routing with crate training and I only use the 'potty' outside. I am NOT good with chickens and I will hurt them, so please, no chickens! I do fine when the dogs and I are playing outside or in the house, but I do have some barrier ... (Read More)issues, so I don't like when there is a gate, fence or crate between me and another dog. It makes me very upset. However, it is certainly something I can be trained on and work through. Good news! - Whoever adopts me into their family will receive a training session with Nikki Ivey/Dog Speak included with my adoption! Unfortunately, my previous 'owners' kept me in an outside kennel, which is the reason for my barrier issues. Also, as time went on, I started to get so bored and just wanted to be with people, so I escaped my kennel at my old home and killed a neighbor's chicken. My people were so upset that they were planning on shooting me that afternoon. They didn't understand that all I wanted was some attention and love and to not be kept in solitary all day and that many dogs, if given the change, will kill a chicken. I really didn't realize that I did anything wrong, I swear! It was a miracle when a RARE foster agreed to take me in because I had torn my cruciate ligament. Thankfully, now I am able to have surgery to repair it and be able to play again without any pain. I don't have to wait to be adopted, I just need a family to let me rest and recoup for a few weeks before I start to play again. My surgery is scheduled for 1/19/2017, so please send good vibes my way! And don't hesitate to inquire about me and complete the adoption application at RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org! Please apply online at www.rurralanimalreacueeffort.org/adopt-foster. My adoption fee is $200 and a training session with the amazing Nikki Ivey with Dog Speak is included with my adoption (a $200 value)! **Max is up to date on vaccinations and neutered and will be microchipped prior to adoption.

    Well, hello there! Thank you for taking a look at my profile! If you are looking for an active, compact, super friendly and loving dog, then you've come to the right place! My name is Dutchess and I am about 3-4 years old and 35 lbs. I am a muscular and stocky mauve colored staffordshire mix, but I'm rather on the small side. I am currently in foster care and loving it. I am completely crate trained and I have not had one accident in the house. I have been around dogs, cats and children and I love them all. My heart is as big as my smile and I just can't stop smiling! The humans that had "owned" me before over-bred me for a long ... (Read More)time, so I am very grateful that my breeding days are over. I can now enjoy being cared for instead. I could be ok as an apartment dog if I had a few walks or runs throughout the day. I would REALLY like to have a fenced yard or an enclosed area for exercise because I really do like to run, but I mostly want to be with you! So, even though I like to get in a good "zoomie" or two around the yard after doing my business, I want to come right back inside and be a part of whatever your doing. I want to be part of a family and not just be "owned" by one. My foster mom says that I give the best kisses, I just need to contain how excited I get because I love people SO SO much! If you are looking for a super friendly, all around fun girl with a great temperament, then look no further! Apply for me today so we can meet! I am spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, kept on intestinal parasite and heartworm preventative, and microchipped, all of which is covered under my adoption fee of $175.00.

Bull Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We'd like you to meet Rocko, Tennessee's next hunky eligible bachelor. At only 11 months old, Rocko is already catching the eye of all the ladies! Weighing in at 56 lbs, this Bull Terrier mix could be the next big thing to hit Hollywood, or hey, maybe the next Target dog!! He's good with female dogs, as well as submissive males. Rocko is good with kids, and he loves people. He's very gentle with kids and people, and we are unsure how he reacts to cats, but we can test this, if needed. Rocko wanted us to mention that he really needs a fenced yard or an active walker/runner for exercise because, as we all know, maintaining a 'Hollywood figure' ... (Read More)isn't easy. If you are thinking that you've discovered the total package, you're right! Rocko is house trained and crate trained. Even though Rocko is still very puppy-like and young, he has not had one accident in his foster home. Gold star for Rocko! We saw instantly how smart he is because he easily learned how to go in his crate on command, he knows sit and down, as well as other fundamental commands. *****AN APPLICATION AND HOME VISIT ARE REQUIRED!***** Please visit www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org for foster and adoption applications or for additional information.

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Deaf 

    There's just something about a set of perfect ears on a dog that always bring a smile to my face!! Meet Kendrick (now called Stewie), he's a happy little guy, about 2 years old (as of August 2016), weighing in at a solid 46 pounds. Stewie's stocky little body is sporting some fiercely cute ears and a face you can't help but fall in love with!! Speaking of ears, Stewie is deaf. But don't think that slows him down! He's knows several hand commands already and is eager to learn more. He is a funny boy and will keep a smile on your face. We will make sure that Stewie's adopter has information about training for deaf dogs in case they ... (Read More)want to pursue this. Stewie was scheduled to die in August 2016, but we managed to pull him, thanks to a foster volunteer. He has been doing well, and getting along great with other dogs. He has also been perfection with all of the children he has met. We aren't sure how he responds to cats, but will be happy to test him. Stewie is an energetic guy, he needs daily walks, or a fenced in yard to run and play in. He is very intelligent and receptive to commands, making him a highly trainable dog - for anyone willing to work with him. He would be great at agility of any kind, or just learning new tricks to entertain you. He could be the world's next Pet Star if he wanted but Stewie is perfectly happy with being your shinning star. That's all any pet wants. If you are interested in bringing Stewie into your family, please apply online at www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org/adopt-foster. **An application and home visit are required.

    Hi, I'm Sheldon. Me and my brother Leonard are currently looking for either a foster or forever home, we both are living outside and even though the weather has been nice it is going to get cold soon, so we need to get inside ASAP. We have great parents, we used to live in the house with them and they have always given us the best care and lots of love. We are 3 years old, neutered, heartworm negative, UTD on our vaccinations and with a quick refresher course we will be housetrained again. The problem is, that our parents are seniors and due to health problems they can no longer keep us inside, that's why we are currently living outside. ... (Read More)They want better for us, they want us to live in a home again with a family because they say we are such good, smart, sweet boys and we deserve more than what they are physically able to give us anymore. Leonard and I get along great with each other but we don't necessarily have to be adopted together, we've never been around other dogs so we would need to be introduced properly if you wanted to take one or both of us home to another dog. Please apply to foster or adopt by visiting our website www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org An application and home visit are required. Once your application is received, we will call you and answer any questions you have. All animals are spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccines prior to adoption.

    Maryanne is a beautiful black and white Border Collie/Lab mix. She is a bit chunky, but she can run like the wind! She is very affectionate and loving with people, but she is selective when it comes to dogs. Her approximate date of birth is March of 2008, so she's not exactly a young girl.

I may look muscular and stocky, weighing 50 lbs, but I am a low-rider and a softy at heart.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Say hello to Tiny! I'm Tiny, well yes I am a little girl at 35 pounds but Tiny is my name. I'm about 3 yrs old. I used to live...well survive from the kindness of strangers. You see, I was chained in a back yard and didn't have anything to keep the sun or rain off me. I didn't have anything to eat. My tummy hurt so much and I would cry, I cried all night from hunger. There was a nice family next door, that lived behind a big fence, they heard my cries and started tossing food over the fence for me. Then they must have sneeked a look at me and saw how skinny I was because they called someone and next thing I knew some wonderful ladies ... (Read More)were there taking me to a place that was warm, dry and had plenty of food for me to eat. They gave me lots of love there too. I know now that heros, really do exist. As you can tell I'm part chow but what you don't know is I am part beagle also. Chows are great dogs, they are quiet, clean, beautiful, loving, loyal, smart and have awesome purple tongues, I get all that from my chow side and I get even more smarts and my 'I love everyone, even other dogs' personality from my beagle side. You really just can't go wrong with a sweet cutie pie like me. If you'd like to adopt me and spend the afternoons taking some nature walks or just hanging out in the yard, that would be great. **An application and home visit are required.

    My name is Ringo, although I'm not sure if it's because I'm such a rock star or if it's because I have rings on my beautiful tail! I lived on my own for a long time, and several people tried to catch me. Most of them weren't successful, but one young lady managed to snare me. She took me to the vet, and I was vaccinated (ouch!) neutered (whose idea was that?), and loved (YES!). I stayed at the clinic from October until December because there was no place else for me to go. I was a bit shy when I first arrived there, but the vet techs played with me when they could. Since coming to Red Fern, I have made many, many friends, both two-legged and ... (Read More)four. I am great with kids too! I'm no longer at all frightened of people, and I can't wait to belong with someone special. As a bonus, I enjoy walking and am good on a leash. The people at Red Fern tell me every day how much they love me and what a good boy I am. They say I am a calm and happy boy! I know that someone is going to say, 'That's the boy for me!' very soon, and I'll be packing my bones and heading out. Today could be that day! Ringo's adoption fee is $200.00.

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-19-00223Copper (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey folks!! My name is Copper and I'm a hunka hunka burning love...80 pounds of love that is. I'm a bit of a clown and I enjoy making people laugh...now people...I love me some people. I just can't get enough of having my ears scratched, my nose kissed and my belly rubbed, but when it comes to dogs, I am a ladies man and like to be around a submissive female. I'm ok with cats though. I really love kids too but I get excited at the site of them and just want to run over and kiss them and play. The problem is, I'm such a big boy, and somewhat of a clutz at times.I'm afraid my excitement may cause me to knock them down accidentally. My foster ... (Read More)mama says I'd be best with older kids, that weigh more than me. A home with a fenced yard would be a dream come true, because I sure would love to run and play off leash. If you have a BIG bed, that would be an added bonus, a boy has got to have room to stretch while he's protecting you from bed bugs. The only bug that should be in the bed is a love bug and that would be ME. If you'd like to adopt me please apply online at http://www.adoptapet.com/rural-animal-rescue-effort-rare/adoption-application-2/ Home visit, application and vet reference is required. Transport can be arranged at no additional cost. **Copper is UTD on vaccinations, on heartworm preventative, neutered and micro-chipped. Transport can be arranged to approved home or an approved foster (Less)
