Dogs Available for Adoption


Dobby is all puppy! She is a Jack Russell mix, only about 10 weeks old as of Valentine's Day. She is taking anti-inflammatory medication for a condition the vet says is "growing pains." It was first thought to be possible hip dysplasia, but fortunately it is something that she will outgrow. She has all the life and energy you'd expect in a puppy this size. Of course, like all SARG animals, she'll be spayed when she is old enough.

Tina is a cute puggle (pug/beagle mix) female. She is about 1 year old as of February, 2018, and weighs 21 pounds. We are just learning about her personality, but we do know that she does not do well with large dogs. Tina is in a temporary housing situation right now, and we would very much like to find her a foster home, which will help us to get to know her much better.

Barkley is a super-sweet, 5-year-old beagle mix, who weighs 16.6 pounds. Barkley is housetrained. He gets along well with other dogs and appears to get along with cats. He loves to play with his toys, although some of them donít live very long. Barkleyís favorite game is tug-of-war. When he is not playing, Barkley loves to snuggle up next to his human to read or watch television. Barkley has some food allergies and is on a special diet. He will need to be kept on a limited ingredient food to prevent ear infections and skin issues from recurring. Barkley is looking for a special home that he can call his own, and he promises to be a loyal and loving companion.

If you follow SARGís animals on our website, Petfinder and/or Facebook, youíve met Rudy. This one-year-old (now), 42-pound pointer mix, we are happy to say, has successfully completed heartworm treatment. His last two immiticide injections were given almost a month ago; now itís time for Rudy to slowly get back to regular activity. Applications are now open to person/persons interested in giving him a loving, forever home. His lack of socialization when rescued, compounded by heartworm treatment of "strict cage rest" since November, 2017, will require some patience to help in his final healing process. He has made lots of great progress in his foster home, such as learning the "sit," "stay," and "outside" commands. He is housetrained and loves to give dog kisses. He will be going to puppy daycare soon to meet up with new people and new dogs. We know he will love the experience, as he has such a drive to want to please. Weíve added a short video of him interacting with the foster's 70-pound hound -- they simply love each other. So, if youíre looking for a wonderful dog friend in your life, fill out the application "because Rudy really is The One!"

Happy Tails -- Dogs Adopted or Pending


Meet Jackson, a 1½-year-old, 30-pound beagle/shepherd mix sweetheart! Jackson is quiet, calm (although he's not too crazy about being in a crate), great with children, other dogs, cats, etc., etc., perfect on a leash, not a chewer or a shedder, and housetrained! Jackson already knows the commands "come," "sit," and "paw," and his foster mother knows he will learn other commands quickly. In short, he is a perfect furry companion. Anyway, how can anyone resist those bedroom eyes?

Penny is a very sweet little miniature poodle mix female. She is about 6 years old and weighs in at 7 pounds; she likes to play and go for walks. Her favorite thing is to be cuddled. She loves being held like a baby. Penny's foster mom says she will dance around on her hind feet to get a treat or even to let her know she needs to go out to potty. She sleeps in a crate all night without waking up. She has a cataract in one eye, which we have had checked by an eye specialist. The chances that removing it will improve her vision in that eye are very slim (about 30%). Since she has no problem seeing with the other eye, we did not put her through the surgery. She will need one eye drop in the eye with the cataract to keep down any inflammation. Here you see Penny before she was groomed; see her gallery for a couple of pictures of her after grooming. What a difference a little TLC can make!

Jedi is probably a mix of border collie and sheltie, with a bit of shepherd for good measure. And Jedi is an appropriate name for this magnificent dog. Beware! -- one look into his face will steal your heart!. He is just under a year old and weighs 40 pounds. Jedi is very people-oriented, what we call a "leaner"; he leans up against you as if he wants to get as close to you as he can. When you start petting him, he will lie down and want his belly rubbed. He has not had much experience with walking on a leash, but we are working on that as well as trying to get him used to car rides. He seems fearful about getting in a car, but once he is in and secure with his person beside him, he settles down. We think he may have been "dumped" from a car at some time in his past. We want to get him where he has happy things happen when he goes in the car -- like going for walks by the lake, or to the park to play. He likes treats, so he is a good candidate for training. Right now he is residing at a boarding kennel, and we have learned that he also knows how to climb chain link fences. He was in the outside play area and the staff was in the parking lot and saw him try to climb the fence three times. He didnít make it to the top; they felt he was just trying to get to them, since he is so people-oriented.

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.
