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)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-11-00378CHANDLER (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chandler is around 1 year old and is a chocolate feist/lab/terrier mix puppy who weighs around 35 pounds, and even has partial webbed paws. He came into the rescue a few weeks back. Here is his story. We received a phone call from a panicked woman whose husband's cows were getting chased by dogs. She stated there was around 10 dogs and some had even got one cow down. One of the ladies with the rescue immediately made the trip out to the farm as the farmer wanted to just have the dogs removed if possible, but could not do nothing as this was his income and he had to feed his family. These dogs were not his and were a neighbor's dog who ... (Read More)refused to do anything. Chandler's original owner actually told the farmer to just shoot them (He only threw out dog food and did not help socialize any of these dogs who constantly reproduced). There is no Animal Control in this county to enforce a leash law or to assist in this situation. We were able to catch four puppies and Chandler. Chandler was scared but he wanted to be loved on. He was trapped into a kennel and never tried to escape. We think he knew that he would live to see another day. We immediately brought him home and started working with him. At first he would just lay down when you put a leash on him. He would not budge and would just lay there whining. He spent a week in the kennel getting adjusted and being quarantined. After that week, he started to blossom. I would walk to the kennel and he would just cry with excitement. He would hold his butt up in the air, put his head on the ground and just wag his tail like crazy. He has been spending some time inside with his new foster mom now. Chandler has improved while walking on the leash. He is comfortable around the house but going to new locations is still scary to him sometimes, but as long as you are there he is fine. He would not enter the house in the beginning and would have to be carried inside. He is now running into the house on his own which was a huge step for him. He also loves all his foster siblings, who are definitely helping him to come out of his shell. He has a comfort zone and doesn't like to venture from it but will if you want him to. When we go outside he doesn't like to leave the back porch or the backyard. He loves staying right by his person. He loves everyone he meets but will wait to be greeted. He loves his Great Dane sister, JRT brother, Hound sister, and two 8 week old puppy foster siblings. He does not mind the horses at his foster mom's house either. He hasn't had an accident while inside the house and is crate trained. He is heartworm negative, neutered, up to date on shots, and on monthly preventatives. His adoption fee is $150 locally and if out of state there will be an additional fee for transport and health certificate. Adoption fee includes complete vetting including spay/neuter and on monthly preventative (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-19-00037Kirby (male)

Mountain Cur Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Kirby the Cutie-pie! He's an 18 month old. We are not quite sure of Kirby's breed because he is only 32 lbs. So, we are guessing that he may be a Curr/Beagle mix, with beautiful brindle points. Kirby is all about some belly rubs and will gladly roll over for one..or two, maybe even three if he can talk you into it. He also enjoys playing with his toys and napping on the couch. Kirby is great with people and gets along with most other dogs he meets, but he should not go to a home with cats or chickens. This little guy is just a joy to be around, he is only 38 pounds and on the shorter side, standing only 17 inches from shoulder to ... (Read More)floor. An added plus to Kirby is that he is already kennel trained. If you would like to adopt little Kirby, please apply online at at http://www.adoptapet.com/rural-animal-rescue-effort-rare/adoption-application-2/ or email us at ruralanimalrescueeffort@gmail.com and we'll get an application out to you. Transport can be arranged Kirby, is neutered, UTD on vaccinations, microchipped **Does not need to be with cats or chickens** (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Mountain Cur in Tennessee
    Mountain Cur Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee if they match your IifestyIe. The Mountain Cur is a brave, rugged hunting dog. Mountain Curs are protective guardians of their families bred from tough dogs of the pioneer days. Mountain Curs are best suited to life in the country with plenty of space to roam and a job to do. Mountain Curs are smart and trainable, but they do not make good indoor pets.
