Hi, my name is Babe and it is quite obvious that I am a boxer mix. From the distinguished, gentle aging of my face it’s clear I am a senior dog. I am looking for my forever home, where I can settle in and enjoy the remaining years of my life. My foster mom says I was wandering around Shelby Park, and when I spotted her walking her dogs I knew if I followed her home she would take me in. I have a very gentle and affectionate nature. I get along very well with other dogs and cats. I am also not intimidated when in the company of children. I spend most of my day laying on my bed, but I’m fully aware that my job is to guard the house. My foster mom has a fenced-in yard and I have a doggie door that I can use whenever I want, which makes my job much easier. I love walks and I get very excited when I see my foster mom getting my leash. It will be music to my ears when I hear someone say “I got you Babe”!”

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!

Rosalee is a sweet 3-4 year old beagle who is looking for a cuddle buddy! She is as sweet as can be and will make a wonderful companion for the person lucky enough to adopt her. Rosalee is a delightful mix of calm and playful and does great with kids, other dogs and cats. She enjoys going on walks and smelling all the wonderful smells around a yard — but her favorite activity is getting a belly rub and feeling loved. Rosalee is crate trained and housebroken. She is finishing up heartworm treatment and is soon to be spayed. Get in touch with us to meet this goofy and loveable girl!
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!

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 readingView All Adoptables
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.

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 email@example.com.View All Adoptables
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!View All Adoptables
