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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
