Rescue Me ID: 17-01-20-00148Lucky WILL DIE 2-23-17 (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    ** BEYOND URGENT** LUCKY MUST HAVE A FOSTER OR ADOPTIVE HOME BY 2-23-17 OR HE WILL BE PUT DOWN. PLEASE GIVE LUCKY A CHANCE! The shelter is overflowing and Lucky must have a foster or adoptive home by 2-23-17!!! HIS TIME IS UP!!!! Please contact RARE today if you can help. We need a foster and/or adoptive home for Lucky ASAP!!!!! Lucky is a 2 year old Mt. Curr mix. He has been at the shelter since 6-21-16 and he weighs about 60 pounds. Unfortunately his previous owners did not keep him on a monthly heartworm preventative so he is heartworm positive, but with heartworm treatment (which will be provided by RARE) and a little time and ... (Read More)love, he will just be just fine and will still live a long healthy life! He is pretty laid back for the most part and does great with other dogs! He also loves everyone he meets including children! Although he hasn't had the best life so far and has been let down by humans in the past, he still trusts strangers and loves to lick their hands when they go to pet him. He is very trusting and just lays around pretty much all day. We let him out during the day to mingle and play with the other dogs, but he usually prefers to relax and sunbathe in the grass! He is nothing but a big ole' lovebug and would make the best companion to someone if given the chance! So let's make this sweet boy's name a reality and make him the Luckiest dog in the world! Adoption Fee $150.00 **An application and home visit are required. Transport can potentially be arranged to approved homes. Please ask us for more information if you are not in Tennessee** **All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have.** Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heart-worm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption. Thank you for choosing to adopt, foster, or aid in the rescue efforts of RARE! *****AN APPLICATION AND HOME VISIT ARE REQUIRED***** Please visit www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org for foster and adoption applications or for additional information. ***Please Note*** The breeds noted are guesses on the part of the volunteers of RARE based on the physical characteristics of the particular animal.

    great dog knows basic commands, walks on leash and loves to play ball. He is about 1 year 4 months old and about 60 lbs and I believe the color would be called red. Jinx needs a boy to play and run the woods with. Jinx was found along back road as a puppy, his owner could not be found so we kept him. He is just too large for our little girls. I can text a picture to you.

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-23-00483Rufus (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered 

    Gentle abuse-survivor Rufus is in desperate need of a new foster, adopter or rescue group NOW! Rufus's Foster Mom loves him deeply but can no longer care for him due to serious family illness. She is eagerly seeking someone who will continue the love and training she has begun so Rufus becomes the dog he was meant to be. Once he's familiar with you this medium sized lab mix heels beautifully on or off lead. Rufus is quite intelligent and eager to please too, easily learning and performing tricks for you. A sociable boy who thrives on arranged playdates, a female companion dog would bring out the best in him, though a male friend may work ... (Read More)well too. Rufus foster mom has nicknamed him a 'Wonder Dog' who is successfully tackling his only issue: being touched. Rufus suffered a tail-cropping gone bad sometime in early puppyhood. Amateur surgery too close to the spine caused him considerable pain and suffering at the time. Rufus has not allowed himself to be stroked or handled ever since this botched job. When approached for petting he backs away: NO aggression, NO snarling or biting. Just a cautious retreat in fear of more pain or injury. Foster Mom Faye and Rufus have been working on this together and making very good progress! In certain situations Rufus now allows Faye to gently touch his face, a monumental achievement for this sweet soul. Is there room in your home and heart for Rufus the Wonder Dog? A special boy eager to trust and love again, a devoted friend who will follow you to the ends of the earth? Yes, he has an issue about being touched but he's working through that issue just as we work through our own. If Rufus' foster mom cannot find him this home he will have no place to go but the shelter. After pouring so much love into Rufus his foster mom simply cannot accept that outcome without a fight. PLEASE contact FAYE at (615)305-0504 or (615)352-0796 or email edwardk35@gmail.com and arrange a meet and greet. You will be so impressed and yes you will love this boy. Please give him a chance to live and thrive! (Less)
