Trinket – Coonhound

Trinket is a Treeing Walker Coonhound, and she completely lives up to her breed description. She is good with other dogs and people. She lives for walks/runs/hikes where she can explore new territories, but equally loves being with her people (belly rubs are a particular favorite). She is smart, fun, and sociable. Her name comes from the breed’s ability to chase animals up trees and actually climb the tree to trap them, meaning they are true hunters so they cannot be left to roam open land. She needs a fence to keep her safe, or her nose can take her far from home. Walkers are bred for copious physical activity, so an active family is a must for both owners and dog to be happy. Trinket is fixed, up to date on vaccines, and chipped. She’s about 3 years old, and around 50lbs. She is crate, leash, and house trained. She will be a great dog for the humans willing to understand and focus her awesome character traits. Email info@eastcan.org to meet the amazing Trinket today!

Scout – Complimentary Post

Meet Scout! She and her two kittens were homeless until some nice people picked her up during the extreme winter weather. Scout’s babies were able to find homes and now she is looking for that special family to call her own! She’s approximately one year old and weighs 7 pounds. She’s small but don’t let her weight fool you; she’s very outgoing, sweet and always ready to play with a toy her scratching pad. She loves to cuddle with her foster parents and even occasionally sneaks a cat nap with her dog-sister, Lily. Scout is spayed and fully vetted and can’t wait to meet you! For a meet and greet, contact Leigh Anne at eastcanla@gmail.com.

Murphy – Adoption Pending

Little did the ladies of East CAN know, as they waited in the lobby of MACC, that the sweetest, friendliest, albeit drooliest gentleman was about to walk into their lives. Yes, that’s Murphy. This big lug was unable to go to the adoption floor at MACC because he was found to be heartworm positive, but he is well on his way to being a healthy boy. He is a stocky guy who weighs in at about 50 pounds and is around 3-years-old. He is house and crate trained and gets along great with other dogs. He is laid back and calm and an all around great pup. If you’re interested in meeting him email info@eastcan.org with the subject line Murphy.

Nash- Adoption Pending

If there was a movie about Nash, it would be the Karate Kid. Rescued as a puppy from the streets of Clevland Park in East Nashville, Nash has grown into the dog all dogs should aspire to.  Though we didn’t wear the head sash Mr. Miyagi while doing it,we worked really hard to socialize Nash so that he would be a confident, well-ad justed, adaptable dog. And boy, did it work! He was a hit at every event, patio, and sidewalk he graced the last few months. He’s been exposed to the vet, various environments, sounds, smells, people, dogs, cats, pack play, etc. He is fully potty, leash, and crate trained. He was Grasshopper, but the student has become the teacher. I swear, he has made my dogs better! Nash is likely a Newfoundland or Flat Coat Retriever mix. He has a beautiful silky, wavy coat, and sheds very minimally.  He is about 6 months and will be fixed/finish shots within the first two weeks of 2015. He will be BIG. He is about 50 lbs already and shows no sign of slowing down. We estimate he will be at least 80 lbs when full-grown.  Email info@eastcan.org to set up a meeting with this awesome puppy!

Rudy – Adoption Pending

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  info@eastcan.org to meet Rudy!
