Axle – Adoption Pending

Axle is a happy 8 month to 1 year old pup. He is great with other dogs and has endless energy. Axle loves to go for walks and and romping around the yard. We suspect he is part Rhodesian Ridgeback but cannot be sure. He can be shy when you first meet him but after that he will love you forever and ever.

Brutus

 
Brutus has a heart almost as big as his head!  He’s a classic East Nashville Special Breed: a black pittie mix. The vet estimates he’s a couple of years old and is in great health. He’s been fixed, is up to date on shots and monthly flea and heart worm treatment, and he’s heart worm negative! He’s only about 55lbs.  He enjoys daily activity and likes the challenge of learning new tricks, but he’s also content to cuddle or snore on his dog bed. He likes other dogs, but he may be a bit too interested in chasing cats to co-exist peacefully with them.

To make this sweet guy your own, please email info@eastcan.org with the subject line “Brutus.”

Layla

Layla is very sweet and has a calm demeanor. She is about 2 and ½ years old. She loves to play, go on walks and is a huge cuddle bug. She is terrific in the car and is housebroken. She gets along with her submissive male foster brother. Although she is still going through obedience training (sit, stay, walk next to me etc….) she is doing well. She has been exposed to children at a minimum level but she did great mainly because she loves any human she comes in contact with. We think she would do well in a home where she is the only dog or where there is a more submissive dog already living there. Whoever will adopt this sweet girl will need lots of love and patience. She is improving day by day but still has a ways to go.

Rudy – Complimentary Post

Meet Rudy!  He is a sweet and playful boy with lots of energy and tons of love.  He was rescued from the streets of East Nashville after being shot in the leg and is now happy and healthy.  He is great with all people, children, and other dogs, but he isn’t so good with cats. He is about 3 years old and weighs in at 48 lbs.  He is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date with all his vetting.  While he is a much-beloved member of his family, Rudy needs to find a new (cat-less) home, and his family is maintaining responsibility for his re-homing. Rudy’s family is asking for a $50 re-homing fee that they will donate to East CAN, and will send Rudy with his crate, bed, toys, and vetting records.  Please contact Ashley (AshleyEEgger@gmail.com;  615-568-4129) to meet Rudy!
