 Sophia  is a darling sweet as sugar 3 year old female grey/white Schnauzer, weighing 12lbs who was saved from an abusive puppy mill situation in TN. Luckily they were saved in the nick of time. Sophie arrived very pregnant and she just gave birth. They all seem to be healthy. It's still so early to tell even the sex of the pups but they are taking advance applications for them so they will be ready to go to their forever homes once they are 2-3mos old.  Please lets find Sophie and all the little pups loving homes!

Starsky and Hutch story is a sad one....their former owner of these brothers confined them to a horse trailer for the entirety of their young lives, depriving them of the one thing dogs want most: simply to be with their people. Damage was done. The complete void of love, human contact and socialization accounts for their shy and fearful natures. Starsky and Hutch were rescued, literally, from death's door. Their owner was taking them into a high-kill county shelter just as a rescue was coming out. She knew all too well the certain fate of such terribly shy dogs in a stressful, overpopulated shelter, and she took them home with her. It was the beginning of the end of their nightmare.  Starsky (the hunky dark-haired one) and Hutch (the blond heartthrob) spent their first days at our shelter hunkered together under a sink, terrified of everyone and everything. They had to be carried to the yard. They had no idea how to walk on leash. Didn't know what it meant to be touched or loved by a human. Damage had been done. 

A week later, they were walking to the yard and back like seasoned pros and accepting if tentatively affectionate pets. With an inspiring resiliency that makes us realize yet again that dogs are far superior to us humans, Hutch has really blossomed under the daily TLC of STAF volunteers. He greets us at the front of his run with a smiling face, a crazy-happy tail, and those gorgeous brown eyes. Starsky, too, has come a long way, but has a way still to go. Looking into his soulful dark eyes, we see a spirit desperate to be let loose. So we continue to work with him, providing him with the love, one on one attention and daily routine that will bring him out of his shell and into the world of the living.

Starsky and Hutch must be adopted together. We will never know if they are true brothers, but they are in their hearts, and we do not want to break that bond. We request that you have a fenced in yard. They are afraid of new things that we feel they become to stressed on a walk and may try to bolt. Our volunteers take them on walks so they are getting used to the traffic, but they are still unsure.  Their perfect home will provide the sense of security they need to continue to heal emotionally, training to teach them confidence, and joyful celebrations with every small step they take toward becoming the trusting, loving and loved dogs they were meant to be. Recently a volunteer has taken Starsky & Hutch under her wing and has started taking them on home visits.  After their initial show of insecurity from being in a new place, they turned in to the silliest happiest dogs.  She thought they would wag their butts off, and every time she would say something to them they would start wagging even harder.  They are good boys, no getting in to anything, no chewing up anything.  They love to go out in to the backyard and just lay in the sun.  They also love her cat, who knew?
Starsky and Hutch are going to need a lot of positive help from their human(s) when first settling in.   Do you have a quiet home that has room for two boys?  A home with enough room on the floor for two dogs beds?  A home that would welcome two of the sweetest, bravest souls we have ever known in to their lives?  We are hoping there is someone out there that can give them their chance at happiness.  They have been at STAF for two years.  That is two years too many.  Please lets find these two sweethearts a loving home!

Gorda was surrendered after the family's living arrangements changed and the new landlord wouldn't allow her. She is a 6 year old Yellow Lab mix who has been a wonderful family dog, she raised two kids. If you give her a chance to warm up you will see her true personality come out. She is tentative when meeting new people as her family didn't get her out & about. She would be a good companion for someone home alone during the day & will alert you when people come to the house. Gorda speaks Spanish & is learning English commends in her foster home. She is also learning leash skills & she would love someone who could continue her training & take her for hikes. Gorda has an athletic build but can also be a couch potato. We are looking for a home for her where she will be able to get out and enjoy life & see some of the things she has missed being a sheltered pup. Gorda is spayed, vaccinated & will be heartworm tested prior to adoption. Adoption fee $165. Please fill out an application at website listed below so we can schedule a meet and greet with you and her foster family.  Please lets find her the a good home!

No paw left behind our mission!

{Please keep in mind a dog is lifetime commitment. They need attention, love and time just like we do. In addition, adding a pet to the family does cost money in the way of food, health care, training,etc. So before adopting make sure you are willing to make that kind of commitment and have the resources to do so.}
