Blue

Little boy Blue was surrendered to East CAN along with a few of his brothers and sisters in late May 2014. Blue is about 4-5 months old. While he is young and new to an in-home life, the common feedback across Blue’s foster parents and foster sitter over a long holiday weekend is that he is one smart cookie! Blue is a playful pup, but after he’s all played out he loves to cuddle. Blue has been dog,cat and child tested, which is something that is not always possible depending on the foster home. The good news is that he’s great with all three! Continue reading

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.”

China

It had been pouring rain on a cold December 2012 day when a friend and fellow animal advocate suggested we check out a house where a tied up dog was in serious need of proper shelter.

We drove by and you could see the multiple gaping holes in the roof of the poor dog’s current dog house knowing it was getting soaked and freezing in the December rain. Several days later we delivered a doghouse and hay to provide to a little tan/white dog tied to a front yard tree. She belly crawled over to greet us with her piglet like grunts. Continue reading

Griswold

Griswold is named for Chevy Chase’s “National Lampoon” character; which he earned after a month-long chase between him and dog lovers of Donelson and East Nashville. He was first spotted looking terrified and running (seemingly) for his life down Gallatin. Multiple people attempted to catch him, and East CAN received numerous emails and messages about this dog that was running down Gallatin, then Ellington Parkway, then Briley Parkway!

Trinidad – Coonhound

Trinidad, also known as Trinket, is a gentle and adventurous soul. She is just under three years old, healthy, fixed, and micro-chipped. She loves to run and play, she gets along great with other dogs, and she is a terrific watchdog. She loves to wander around her big back yard investigating, and her walks are the highlight of her day. She always wants her neck scratched and her tummy rubbed, and her favorite food is homemade chicken soup! She is looking for a forever home, preferably somewhere with lots of room for her to run around. If you give her a job to do—protecting the house, keeping the squirrels away from the vegetable garden, looking after other dogs—she will love you forever! She needs to be useful and to loved!

Spencer – Complimentary Post

Meet Spencer! He is a 50 lbs collie/whippet mix. He is fully house trained, leash trained, neutered and up to date on shots. He is about 5 years old, and is ready for his forever home. He would do best in a home with grown children, and has not been cat tested.  He gets along with the other dog in his current home, but as always, those wishing to add a companion for your dog should prepare for a proper introduction to determine if Spencer will be the right addition to your family.

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!

Pete – Adoption Pending

Meet Pete! He’s a house-trained, crate-trained, 6 month old lab mix puppy. Pete is around 25 lbs, up to date on his vaccinations, and neutered. When he’s not enjoying his daily walk through Shelby Bottoms Park, playing chase with the “big kids” at the Dog Park, camping, hiking, or swimming, (he’s even been kayaking!), you can find him sleeping peacefully on the air conditioning vent or at your feet. He’s a smart lil’ guy and picks up commands quickly. He already has sit, wait, leave it, and out memorized. He’ll do just about anything for his favorite treat, ice cubes! He’s never met a kid he didn’t want to be friends with and is particularly fond of the ladies! If you want a friend who will follow you anywhere, Pete’s your guy. Please email info@eastcan.org to meet Pete.
