Meet Molly! By no fault of her own, she has to find a new home, ASAP. Even though Molly has lived happily with her family for quite some time, the landlord has decided no more dogs, and Molly has to go, NOW. She is 1 1/2 years old and already spayed and crate trained. She even knows how to sit, shake, and give high-fives! She is a lab mix with a lot of energy who doesn’t always realize her own strength. She would love a running partner. She plays really well with children, and Molly’s human siblings are distraught to lose her. Molly is also doggie social! This little lady loves to snuggle and give kisses to her people, and loves meeting visitors (even though they get her really excited). Molly is about 60 - 65 lbs and nothing but love. She has the build of a lab, but has more of a Rottweiler neck and shoulders. She is a gorgeous mix. Molly is good in the car, but she really wants to be the driver. Molly also has an impressive vertical leap. While she hasn’t shown interest in jumping a fence (yet), she will need a strong and tall enclosure. Molly would be fantastic in a home with older children who understand the difference between dog food and toys and who understand how to properly interact with a dog who really loves people. If you would like to meet this love-bug, please contact Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org or 615-594-8811. Amanda would love if Molly’s new home could share pictures after the adoption so that her children can see that Molly is ok and adjust to the lossView All Adoptables

Warm hearted pup looking for his own (heating) pad!
And you thought you were sick and tired of the cold! Meet Ajax, a beautiful pit bull mix with a heart as warm as the heating pad he prefers to sleep on. This sweet 4 month old pup is a survivor who was found with his sister Astrid freezing to death in an alleyway as newborns. He was taken in by the East CAN angels and he and sis were brought to a foster home where they both made a full recovery and grew into amazing pups. Ajax hasn’t forgotten that cold night in December, though, and he has made his preference known for all things warm. That includes a soft couch, heating vents, a sweet lap, his own personal heating pad, and even a nice warm breeze from the hair dryer! Although he enjoys the outdoors, this one is a cuddle bug. He is a wonderful companion for his foster parents and will be a great best friend for his forever family. He is currently in a home with cats and does well, although he does like to chase! He also loves kids and gets very excited when they come to play! Ajax is crate trained, potty trained, and is scheduled to be neutered soon. He is very intelligent and knows how to sit and stay. He loves his toys and is great about chewing those and nothing else! He has also had obedience and socialization training and is doing well but is still getting used to other dogs. Honestly, this sweet boy would probably prefer to be your one and only and will gladly give you all the doggie love and attention you can handle! please email email@example.com with the subject line “Ajax.”
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Brutus.”View All Adoptables
Sprout is 11 weeks old and LOVES to snuggle. She gets to come with me to See Spot Eat (a dog bakery and training center) where I work. She does wonderful! She gets well socialized and lots of treats. When at home she does great with her fur foster sister. As far as training goes she is eager to please and has already mastered sit, and down, walks well on a leash, and we are working on more. She is a VERY smart little bundle of joy and will excel at training. Although she still has a few accidents in the house, potty training gets better and better each day. She likes to play outside during the day, so she would be great for someone who likes to go on walks. At the end of the day she is happy to retire to her crate, where she sleeps through out the night. She is up to date on vetting, and will make a great companion to whoever she ends up calling her family.View All Adoptables

Meet Tug! Followed his Foster Daddy home on a cold night when he lost his family. Heart-breaker handsome and a contagious people pleaser that wants nothing more than to hangout nearby (Although, he won’t turn down pets, ear scratches, friendly pats…) If you smile at him, he actually smiles back! He’s an excellent leash walker, sits when he’s asked, and knows well, ”Time for bed…” (Like any kid, he skulks a bit on the way to his room, because he doesn’t want the fun to stop.)
He’s been friendly to everyone he’s met, but not a jumper. (if you invite him, he will gladly dance with you). And his favorite trick – he gives hugs around the neck (seriously, they’re called Tug Hugs now) – hugs that let you know that no matter what kind of day you’ve had, everything is going to be just fine. Tug is HW negative, up to date on shots and neutered.
Meet Faith! Faith was found around Gallatin by the Home Depot and after some coaxing with some wet dog food, came to the volunteers and was immediately taken to the ER Vet. After a couple of nights there, she went home with a clean bill of health and is now ready to find her forever home. She is an older lady and loves other animals and kids. Check out her progress, at https://www.facebook.com/groups/579094802126744/. If you would like to meet her, please contact email@example.com.View All Adoptables
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.View All Adoptables
Little Emmett was starving and scared and taking shelter on a porch in East Nashville for a couple of days when neighbors alerted and word got around to pro-active rescuers. Emmett has now been in foster care for a few weeks and is gaining weight and getting strong and healthy for his forever home.
He is a mid sized mixed breed about 3 years old. He gets along well with other dogs and loves people too. He has even made friends with his cat foster siblings! Let us know if you’d like to meet Emmett!
