Rescue Me ID: 18-05-01-00228Buddy (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Buddy was a stray in Memphis, TN. He is young and energetic. He is UTD on shots, HW-, neutered, and micro-chipped. He is being crate trained. His current foster is in her 80s, so he needs a new home whether temporarily or permanent! She has cats, and he does chase them. He does not have manners, yet, and would knock down small children, but is willing to learn how to behave. He loves to play with toys and chew on bones. He is very sweet but still fearful at times. With love, patience, and training, Buddy will be a great addition to the family.

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-09-00067Rufus (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Special needs: Poor Rufus had a hard start in life. Evaluation suggest he was placed on a chain at a very young age and never petted or loved. It also appears they hacked off his tail with a hack saw and did it very short. (shorter than a vet would have done). Then he either escaped or they just put him out to fend for himself. He had to be trapped to catch him, so he could be helped as he would not come close to any human. The day come he was caught, he was estimated at about 1 year of age. We immediately began socializing him with humans...this took months of slow motion, effort, patience, and love. Everytime we got close, he would groan ... (Read More)and shiver. After almost 4 months he could be touched. It took a couple more months before leash training could even begin. Rufus was introduced to a couple of other dogs at this time, he played, but a bit rough. On walks he was constantly aware of all of the surroundings keeping his head high and on alert, never relaxed. 'Took him to cross the bridge over interstate thought maybe build confidence as he was doing much better on his walks although I still couldn't really touch him, so when we got there he would not cross...he went a few feet that was it. Again & again we walked up to the bridge and he would not cross, one day I was running with him we ran onto the bridge got halfway across & I stopped with him in the middle, he was scared. then we took of running, turned and went back up the ramp, ran all the way across no problem!!! he was fine to cross after that. : ) 'he was now placed inside a privacy fenced and tethered on a cable, a thunderstorm came thru and he was found hiding in his house, shaking and terrified, this is when he decided a human touch was OK. A milestone had happened today! New hope had been established, so we began trying even harder to help this sweet boy.aFter about a year he would be touched, walked on a leash and began to come inside. He quickly decided to LOVE the sofa :) HE is now housetrained, up to date on shots, on HW preventative, and lives at a foster home with 3 small dogs and his big dog girl friend Brownie. If strangers show up, he barks at the fence line, but if they come inside and sit on the sofa, and stay quiet, in minutes he will come offer to let them pet his back side....He loves the outdoors during the daytime. NEVER during thunderstorms or fireworks! He has been in foster care for 4 years now. He is estimated at 5 years old, and now he is READY FOR A FAMILY TO CALL HIS OWN. Is this YOUR next boy? He needs a quiet, loving, HOME, with a sofa. He has come so far with his recovery, would you consider helping this poor baby have the 'best' now, as he has already endured some of the 'worst'???
