Dogs Available for Adoption

Roxy is an Australian cattle dog mix. She is housetrained and has lived with cats, but she does not play well with others. She apparently did not have to share her toys with anyone where she lived previously. She is a middle-aged girl who is, otherwise, the perfect dog.


Please meet Bandit. He's a young, 14-pound mixed breed. His foster home has given up on trying to figure out what he might be, as he looks like an itty-bitty Rottweiler. He's a very sweet boy who's a bit shy upon meeting new people, but once he warms up, he loves to cuddle up on the couch. He doesn't appear to have much experience walking on a leash, so a little work will be in order, but he's willing to please. He was found as a stray in Knox County off Tazewell Pike. After repeated attempts to find his owner, he was pulled into SARG. Bandit has been neutered, brought up to date on all shots, and is on heartworm and flea prevention. Bandit is a pleasant little chap who has adjusted quite nicely to the other 5 dogs in his foster home, in addition to learning a doggie door. He's ready to find his forever home where he can be an integral part of the family.

Zep, or Zeppo or Mr. Zippy, is an approximate 8-year-old terrier mix, most likely rat terrier and something. He weighs about 15 pounds, but needs to put on a little weight. Zep is adapting incredibly quickly to his foster home, settling in with 4 new dogs and learning a doggie door. He is a super easy keeper! He loves to be petted and to be in the same room with you, but is not demanding. His foster home has nothing but good things to say about him. He walks very nicely on a leash and could probably stand to go for some walks to get out and about. Zep would do great in a relatively calm home where he can be safe and loved.

Addie is a young terrier mix who weighs about 20 pounds. She is about a year old. She's friendly and active and likes to be with people.

Gina is a 5-year-old female Chihuahua mix who weighs 12.6 pounds. Her foster mom describes her as a little lover girl, because she loves to be held and snuggled. She currently lives in a foster home with 4 other dogs and 2 birds. She gets along well with the other animals in her foster home, but she seems more interested in playing with her foster mom than with the other dogs. She is a well-mannered little girl. She doesn't bark much, but will call attention to things that are out of the norm. She is housetrained and does not need or like to go into a crate. Gina would make an excellent companion for someone with a laid-back lifestyle.

Happy Tails -- Dogs Adopted or Pending


Brewster is a 60-pound border collie/shepherd mix -- both of which are very intelligent breeds. He has had his vaccines and is heartworm-negative. He is about a year old and a happy-go-lucky guy who hasnít met a stranger. In the cat room at the shelter, he just went over and sniffed the cage and was not aggressive toward any of them -- even the ones that hissed at him. Either he has had some training, or he is a very fast learner; he learned to sit very quickly to get a treat. He seems to be food-motivated and will be easy to train. Brewster is mild-mannered, but he may be a little too exuberant to be around a toddler. We believe he is housetrained, but we'll know more definitely once he is in a foster home.

How can you resist this face? Benji, named after the movie star dog by the same name, is a sweet, affectionate 38-pound, 2-year-old terrier mix. He has just gotten over treatment for heartworm and is now healthy, happy and ready to find his forever home. Benji is easy on the leash, great with cats and dogs and totally housetrained. He does not like being in a crate, but truthfully, he doesn't need to be in one. Benji can be a little skittish until he gets to know you, and then he becomes a totally devoted companion. But because he can be a little scared with strangers and sudden movements, he would probably be most relaxed in a home without very young children. Benji needs to be an inside dog, since he can jump a high fence. But he is such an easy house dog, that shouldn't be a problem for anyone. Whoever makes this dog a part of their family will have a loyal, loving companion.

A small package containing maximum cuteness -- this is Penelope, a Maltese/miniature poodle mix who is about 3 years old. She loves kids, but is shy with new adults and other dogs. She just needs time to warm up to them. She is housetrained.

Ms. Polly looks to be a Chihuahua/beagle mix. Put a Chihuahua head on a little bitty beagle body and that is Polly. She is brand new to the group, so we don't know too much yet. The vet clinic reports she has been very clean in her kennel while there. So far she walks really nicely on the leash and seems very interested in people. She isn't quite sure what to think of all the dogs at her foster home, but she has been respectful. She was not at all intimidated by the doggie door. We will update her profile as we learn more about this cutie!

Trudy is a super-friendly little pug. She seems to like nothing better than to roll over and have her tummy rubbed. She is about 7 years old and weighs 10 - 12 pounds. Trudy's right eye is missing, but that does not seem to affect her happy attitude in the least; and she will be glad to share that happiness with her new forever family.

Maisie is a sweet little female terrier mix, about 5 months old as of June 18, 2017. She is good with kids and loves to give doggie kisses to everyone.

Bentley is a young, possible rat terrier mix about 5 years old and weighing around 12 pounds. He has beautiful, tri-colored short hair and cute long ears. He was an owner surrender to the Anderson County shelter when his family could no longer care for him. He's up to date on shots, neutered and on heartworm preventive as well as flea and tick prevention. He's a new guy to SARG so we don't know much about him yet. We have discovered that he is not fond of being crated so hopefully we can find a situation where that is not needed. He does appear to be housebroken and does very well on a leash. Bentley is in a foster home with other dogs and is doing fine but we think he would do very well as an only dog or with another low key dog. Bentley likes to sit with you while you watch TV but is also ready and willing to go for a walk.

Sassy is a female Shih Tzu. We'll add more details later.

Sam is a 3-year-old beautiful golden retriever/ husky mix. He weighs 42 pounds and is a funny, loving bundle of joy. He likes to take walks and hikes and loves to ride in the car. He likes to play tug with his rope toy. He is good to alert if someone comes to the door, but doesn't continue to bark. He is smart and responds to several commands.

Sam came to us as a stray from Roane county. He was placed in a foster home and was quickly taken out of state for a trial, but he didn't fit into their lifestyle, so he was returned to us. He became too much for the foster to handle and was placed at the kennel because of a lack of available foster homes. He was placed in his current foster home in August. Because of his lack of training and no routine or stability he didn't trust anyone. SARG had a trainer work with Sam and his foster, and as a result he is more trusting and calm. His foster continues to use the training methods with him, and this will need to continue in his forever home. He can be nervous in new situations, but love and patience have calmed him.

He will need to be in a home with no children under 10 and no cats. He is with another dog in his foster home and gets along well with her, but would also do well as an only dog. We also recommend that the adopter have a couple of training sessions. This will help to build a bond and trust with Sam.
