    Good Evening, My name is Kevin and my family, and my two deaf pitbulls, will be moving to the Nashville area in the next 3 to 4 weeks for my new job. I have been very unsuccessful at finding a rental home that will allow pitbull breeds and I am running out of time. Would you know anyone that would be willing to foster my dogs until I find a place, and even possibly until my wife and I buy a home within 6 to 12 months? Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Chevy is 5 years old, he is very obedient, he knows basic voice commands and and hand commands; no intensive training. He doesn't need a lot of attention but loves to play when you have time. He weighs roughly 70lbs. He has food aggression so he just gets separated when there is food out or he is eating.

We don't want to get rid of him but we are being forced to move and the only place we can get doesn't allow dogs over 20lbs, with our children anbd ...

He has plenty of toys and his old bed he loves and if you can love him he will love you wholeheartedly. He has been inside his whole life, although he would probably enjoy a nice fenced in yard, he does not know the dangers of the road and changing weather. He hasn't been around other dogs or animals. We have until the 23rd of June to find him a new home or he will have to go to a shelter where he will be put down because of his breed. (Less)

    Hercules is a very good family dog. inside he is a lay around the house kind of dog. He has a daily routine and will let you know when its time to go out and eat by giving you the stare down while following you around. He loves car rides long or short, he has never been around other animals of any kind so i dont know his reaction to that. He is trained to sit, stay, roll over, lay down, and to go to the cage both with words and hand signals. He has been to the vet since he was a pup and is up to date with all shots. he hates getting his nails cut and does ok with baths. he had leg surgery when he was 6 months from a hit and run and had one ...

    Meet Lilly! This sweet pooch was found as a stray with what we certainly suspect is her puppy and from the looks of her tea-bag dinners, there were other puppies at one time and who knows what happened to them. The finders adopted the puppy but kept this pooch until we could get her into rescue. Lilly is blind in one eye but has a nice personality and is calm for her breeding and enjoys people. She is fearful and timid with overly pushy dogs and seems to appreciate dogs who are not in her face or overly playful. She can be cautious of strangers, but loves treats and all nice things and warms up very, very quickly. We have reason to believe ... (Read More)this dog was tied up and was simply untied and told 'go away' and that is very sad. But, she is a nice pooch who is looking for a nice family. She is housetrained, enjoyed attention from children, and really likes being in a car. We are guessing she is about 1 year to 1.5 years old and will make a nice pet for a family. Please ask about her today! (Less)

He greets every person as if they are his long lost friend from high school and is ready to catch up on all the memories.

Tex has sustained an injury to the MCL in his rear knee at some point in his left which has left his patella less than stable. It slips in and out of place depending on how Tex will step. He does not favor it when it is in place and if it is out of place, he has a slight limp. We are torn about doing surgery to correct it because Tex can get around great and knee surgery on a dog can be tricky and do more harm than good. He is young and it really does not bother him, so right now, we are simply giving him mild and inexpensive anti-inflammatory and pain medication as needed. This is a great dog who will make an ideal pet for an active family. Please ask about Tex today! (Less)

Animal ID: 17-05-20-00370BUTCH WILBUR (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Meet Butch Wilbur! He has two names for a reason. 'Butch' was the name he had when he was taken by local animal control for neglect and 'Wilbur' was the name we added because 'Butch' honestly doesn't fit him but he knows it and he looks like a pig! Here is his story... Butch Wilbur found himself in a local animal control facility and on borrowed time and facing a grizzly fate. A sympathetic but perhaps not really thinking it through person pulled Butch from the pound on his last day and gave Butch to someone who said they wanted the dog. Yes - it was an effort to save the dog's life. However, Butch then found himself on a chain and never ... (Read More)received any vet care. Almost 2 years later, Butch's person was in jail and he was still on that chain, still not altered, and never put on heartworm prevention. So, we got Butch Wilbur and did all the things his person should have done. Butch is fixed, vaccinated, but he unfortunately although not surprisingly tested positive for heartworms. He is being treated however. Butch is a big, big boy at almost 80 pounds and he is thick and low to the ground and just a happy, happy, happy dog. He is a bit of a bull in a china shop kind of dog and really does not understand how big and strong he is. He is full of goofy play and sees everyone as his friend. He is a terrific dog who enjoys his play time and will run and snort like the fat pig he is! He is about 3 years old and does not like doing his business in his kennel and thankfully waits until he gets outside for that kind of activity. If you are interested in adopting Butch, you can ask for an application. Warning - anyone with a less than glowing vet reference including heartworm prevention on any existing dog will automatically be denied. Butch will also not go to a home without a fenced yard because his roaming is how he was picked up and put in the slammer to start with. We really want a happy life for this wonderful snausage dog and finding him that right and permanent and safe and healthy home is our goal! (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey folks! Now that my handsome face has caught your attention, let me tell you a little about ME.... My name is Copperhead, Copper for short. I'm a hunka-hunka burning love...87 pounds of love that is! I'm around 3 years old, but still a bit of a clown and I enjoy making people laugh. I love me some people! I just can't get enough of having my ears scratched, my nose kissed and my belly rubbed. When it comes to dogs, I am a ladies man and only like to be around a submissive female, otherwise I need to be an only dog. I really love kids too but when I get excited, I can knock them down accidentally because of my size and clumsiness. So, ... (Read More)I'd be best with older kids, that weigh more than me. I definitely need a fenced yard because I like to run and do "zoomies" and stretch my big muscular legs. My foster mom says that I am magnificent and a special person or family will be lucky enough to adopt me someday. I need someone assertive and alpha. Let's face it, I'm a pretty big boy and I do best with structure. I am very loving and will lay in your lap as if I was only 20 lbs. If you think you may be the right person or family for me, then please don't wait and apply for me today. I was waiting in a shelter for over two years before I went into a RARE foster home. I just know it's my turn to find a family and I'm patiently waiting for you. My adoption fee is $85.00. I am neuterd, UTD on vaccines and microchipped. Please apply for me online via RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org or use the following link: http://www.adoptapet.com/rural-animal-rescue-effort-rare/adoption-application-2/ I am spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, kept on intestinal parasite and heartworm preventative, and microchipped, all of which is covered under my adoption fee of $175.00. Please visit www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org for foster and adoption applications or for additional information. If you have any trouble, please email us at RuralAnimalRescueEffort@gmail.com Please allow us at least 24 hours to respond, as we are a volunteer based organization with full time jobs in addition to rescue.

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-14-00182Mattie (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    MATTIE is a beautiful 2-year old Bully female who is in need of a forever home where she can continue to get the attention and love she deserves. Mattie was found laying in a bed of corn stalks in rural NW TN. The person who found her had to carry her because she was too weak to walk. She had lots of scars and a cut on her leg which may have been from being beaten. She was bruised and sore which the vet feels may have come from being bumped by a car. At 46 pounds when rescued, she was very thin indicating she was either being starved intentionally or she was a stray for a while. On the bright side, she tested heartworm negative. She ... (Read More)has been on monthly heartworm prevention ever since. She was vetted, vaccinated, spayed and microchipped. She is doing well in her foster home where she gets along with her foster's dogs. She is not good with cats so a cat-free home is needed. She is sweet, loving and cuddly with the entire family. She loves being spoiled and petted. With good care, regular meals and lots of TLC, she has regained her weight and good health. All she needs now is a new home, preferably one with an active family who can provide the exercise and activity Mattie likes. She is a young dog with a lot of young dog energy. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Mattie if it means she will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer rescue to cover at least part of the cost of the veterinary care this dog has received. (Less)

Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    We rescued Kobe from being used as a bait Dog. He has had his upper and lower canines on his right side clipped. When we rescued him he was very skittish and we have since made him a very friendly and outgoing dog. He sits and shakes and wants to be loved. He loves to play fetch and plays with my Chihuahua Brody. He has been around my cat Riddick but Riddick seems to not like him and therefore Kobe chases Riddick when he runs. Otherwise when Riddick lays Kobe will walk up to him and lick him. He is a very docile pit and only wants to lick your hand and play ball. He needs a home where he can run outdoors. He loves to be outside but we ... (Read More)live in a town home where we cant leave him outside on a leash, as others are a little afraid of pits and they seem to be afraid for there children while he is outside. He loves people and children. I have several pictures I can add and am trying to upload some from my phone and will soon add them as soon as I upload them on my computer. (Less)

Health: Spayed 

     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. I rescued Belle from an estate sale at her former home. Both of her human parents died. She had been living in the back yard since June 2016 all by herself. The house is sold, so she is headed to any home without screening or a kill shelter. She is now living in my back yard. However, this is temporary. My dog does not like other dogs and I have 3 cats. Belle seems to see my cats as prey when viewing them through the glass. She is good on a leash and good in a car. I have no idea whether she is good with other dogs. I fear she will get to one of my cats and can't let that happen. She seems healthy although I've only had her one day and she ... (Read More)has not been to the vet. I want to be sure the new owner is screened and she will not be used as a bait dog. She is very sweet and friendly to all people immediately. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    ZEPPELIN loves to be up in the air and has amazing jumping skills! This sweet dog was picked up by Animal Control in Troy in NW TN as a major cold front brought single digit temperatures to TN. Nobody claimed this gorgeous boy, so he was rescued in order to save his life. His foster described him on that day as a very skinny icicle. He is now safe and warm in his foster home where he is crate and house trained and where he has shown no aggression toward his fellow foster dogs. It may be no surprise that he has some food guarding issues, but with regular meals and his foster working on this behavior, he is improving. His foster says ... (Read More)that he is an extremely sweet, very athletic dog. He loves and does well with children, but we recommend a home with older children because of his energy level. He would do best with a family who has an active lifestyle. Zeppelin is 2 years old and weighs 49 pounds. He has been vetted, vaccinated and neutered. He tested negative for heartworm. He will be microchipped prior to adoption. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Zeppelin if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help this 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer rescue to cover at least part of the cost of the veterinary care this dog has received. (Less)

I would say just curious. He is 2 years old, UTD on his shots, microchipped, HW+ (will go with meds if still on them when he is adopted.) He loves his stuff toys and does not tear them up. He does hate cars and trucks. Not to ride in them. Just loves barking and chasing them.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    OLLIE is lucky to be alive. This sweet, friendly white Pit mix female was locked in a shed and left to die. She was in there for nearly a week with no food or fresh water. Thankfully, a neighbor realized she was there and contacted the authorities. She is now safe in a foster home where she is receiving good nutrition and TLC. She weighed 43 pounds when first examined by the vet and her ribs were showing. She has regained her health and weight and now weighs 56 pounds. She was very scared when first rescued and just wanted to get down to the ground. It was as though she had lost her spirit and trust in people. She needs a family who ... (Read More)will help her get that back. She has let volunteers pet and love on her after she has seen that they are OK and that she is safe. She is very calm and sweet. The vet estimates she is about 3 years old. She tested negative for heartworm and has been vaccinated and vetted. She is spayed and microchipped. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Ollie if it means she will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion.

    PRISCILLA has overcome a lot to get where she is today. She may have lived on the streets for a while and was not in good shape when she was first rescued, but she has been in a loving foster home for a while now where she has gotten the attention and care needed. She had surgery for hernia repair that most likely resulted from a bad pregnancy and trying to push out a litter of pups. She tested light heartworm positive but has successfully completed treatment and is now heartworm negative. She is a healthy dog, energetic for her age, and her foster's favorite Pretty in Pink diva. She is current on vaccinations, microchipped and spayed. ... (Read More)She weighs 45 pounds. She is friendly with humans of all ages 8 and above. We have not observed her with children below 8 years. She will bark at other dogs but has shown no aggression. She gets along fine with the cats at her foster home. She does not like her paws being touched or held, however she is making progress with that through training and otherwise, she loves being petted and likes attention and affection from people. She likes car rides. She is crate trained and house trained. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-01-00158Precious (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    PRECIOUS is a perfect name for this playful mixed breed female (possibly shepherd/Lab/pit) who is now facing another month without a forever home. Thankfully, she has a good foster home, but would love to have a home and family all her own. She is sweet and loving and just wants to be with her humans. She is good with children as well as adults. She likes to cuddle and gives good hugs. Besides being with people, she loves to eat and can be food driven. We would recommend she have her meals separate from any other dogs. An even mix of white and black with spots on her ears and a black patch over each eye makes her a very cute pup ... (Read More)indeed. She is 4 years old and weighs 78 pounds. She is HW negative, spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She needs to be in a home without cats. She knows 'sit' and is good on a leash. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Precious if it means she will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue to cover part of the cost of the veterinary care she has received. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-01-00153JohnBoy (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    JOHNBOY is a nice, very sweet and friendly Lab/Bully mix. He is even cuter in person with great eyes that you cannot help but love. He likes to walk right beside you matching step for step. He would make a great companion. He is between 4 and 5 years of age and weighs around 60 pounds. He enjoys people very much and is good with both adults and children. There are 4 kids (boy and 3 girls) ranging in age from 8 to 16 at his foster home. We have also observed him with younger children and he was fine. He just has not been around them as much as he has been with the kids 8 and above. He sleeps in a kennel but has a lot of time out with ... (Read More)the foster family during the day. He is leash walked and has play time both with the fosters and also time in a fenced play area. He does not seem to get along with most of the other dogs at his foster home, but he has been fine when he has been in situations like at the vets office where he is around other dogs on leashes. We think he reacts to being in the kennel and is better when he is not needing to be confined. But we do think he would do best as an only dog and, as with any dog, we recommend caution when introducing two dogs to each other. He is muscular, athletic, and at times even acrobatic. He has been known to jump out of some of the fenced play areas at his foster home so, when his foster is not able to be outside with him, she does put him in a covered area. He is also leash walked at times so leash walking would be a nice option for him to get some exercise. He has been vetted, vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. He is heartworm negative. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Johnboy if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)3 non-profit rescue to cover part of the cost of the veterinary care he has received and a microchip. (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive,
 Abused/Neglected 

    Ladybug had a terrible begining in life. It seems she was either fought or used as a bait dog. She had scars all over her face and front legs. Her ears have been cut or ripped almost off. She was dumped into the streets of Memphis. She became pregnant. Before I could save her, a man took her in saying he was going to keep her. She had 13 puppies. He sold them for $15 and threw her back to the streets like trash. Her bones showed, all of them. She was full of milk. I had to pick her up and carry her to my car. She was too mal-nourished to even get her shots. We had to wait 2 weeks while I got her healthy enough. Ladybug is a ... (Read More)lovebug. She loves people. She loves to hug and kiss. It takes her 2-3 days to feel safe around another dog. Her fear does come out aggressively, but after 2-3 days, she does fine and plays with the new dog. There are 5 other dogs here that she lives with. We pet-sit and after 2-3 days we can have her with them, but in that 2-3 day period, she must be kept separated. We have her kennel in the living room so she can get to know them and realize they are not going to hurt her. She can not be introduced to dogs immediately. She goes on defense/attack mode. Once settled, she does great with other dogs. if you think you have the love, patience, and experience to adopt this sweet stray, please email me. Micro-chipped, UTD on all shots, spayed (Less)

    I'm crying as I write this but I see no other way. Lucy is my baby and I love her dearly but she keeps inciting fights with my other dog and tries to attack one of my cats. Her snapping at my 5 year old was the last straw. I looked into training for her but there is no way I can afford upwards of $400-600 for it. So I have to find her a new home. She's a lap dog even though she weighs about 30 lbs. Lucy is fully vetted, spayed and microchipped. She is also crate and potty trained. Not great on a leash since she used to running around in our big fenced-in yard. She is food driven and like to be left alone when she eats. She is a great guard ... (Read More)dog.

I am 2 %BD%BD years old, and have lived most of my life at the shelter. I do having caring volunteers, but most of the joys of being a dog have not been in my day to day life.

Pit Bull    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Taz needs a new home. If you know me, even just a little bit, then you will know that I love this dog more than any other animal on this planet. He truly is my baby. But, unfortunately, he is not handling life with a small child well. There have been several concerning incidents and it's not getting any better, it's getting worse. As of now Taz has to spend his days in whatever part of the house we are not in and honestly that is just not fair to him. He is a good dog and deserves a home where he can be the baby and this is no longer it. He is far from perfect: he barks, he has separation anxiety, and he is often hesitant to like new people. ... (Read More)But he is an amazing protector, awesome snuggler, hands down the most hilarious dog I have ever been around, and when he loves he loves hard. He has never met another dog he doesn't like and has had a couple of kitty brothers that he did wonderfully with, but apparently small children aren't in his wheelhouse. We have tried everything we know to try and it's just no longer worth the tension or the risks. Again, I love my furbaby, but my human baby has to come first. I am posting this here before I contact a rescue because I would much rather personally know where he will be going and that he is being well taken care of. The thought of him ending up somewhere less than ideal makes me sick to my stomach. This is through NO FAULT of his own. So please friends, if you or someone you would trust with your babies, would be willing take this amazing dog, you won't regret it. Well he is 'special' but I would come pick him back up if I needed to just to avoid not knowing where he was. My heart is seriously breaking over this, but as Lukas gets bigger it's going to get harder and harder to keep them separated. Thanks for reading, if you read this far. I'm going to go cry my eyes out some more about this. (Less)

    Hey there! My name is Sawyer and I am 3 years old (as of 6-20-17). I was adopted by a wonderful family a year and a half ago and we were all very happy. My family is in the Army and they were told that they had to move to a new place. Unfortunately I cannot go to the new place with them. It made us all very sad, but we knew that RARE would take me back and find me a new family. I weigh approximately 50 pounds so I am a little fella. I love other dogs, cats and children. I am an all around great guy and can't wait to find a new home. My former family is serving our country and I am very proud of them. Would you consider being my new ... (Read More)family? Foster homes are nice, but there's nothing like knowing that you are home with your forever humans. Will you make my dream come true? My adoption fee is $85.00. I am neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. *PLEASE SUBMIT AN APPLICATION AT RURALANIMALRESCUEEFFORT.ORG **An application and home visit are required prior to adoption. All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines and micro-chipped prior to adoption.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you looking for a loyal and true best friend, never too busy to cuddle? Meet Molly; a 6 yr. old female Rottweiler Mix who was abandoned at an animal shelter near Winston Salem, NC. Molly had been severely neglected; in addition to being sick with various illnesses, she was emaciated and heartworm positive. Molly's time was up that day. Her condition and appearance made her unadoptable, and the shelter was out of room; sadly, she found herself first on 'The List.' Molly was only hours from being euthanized when SSRR rescued her. Life has changed for this very sweet, loving girl. Molly loves being taken care of by her Foster Dad. He ... (Read More)plays fetch with her, and she gets lots of love and attention. Her favorite position is cuddling while they watch ball games together... and she never talks during the kickoff or important plays!! Molly just loves hanging out with her human! Molly is a survivor! She has been treated for heartworms, spayed, and is now healthy and ready for her forever home and family. She is house-trained and crate trained, and walks well on a leash. Molly has been through so much at the hands of those she had trusted to take care of her; yet, she is very friendly to everyone and loves to give kisses. Despite her past, Molly still loves people and wants her very own family. This sweetheart will melt your heart the moment you meet her. If you want unconditional love, this little lady is your match. Molly does well with children and male dogs (when introduced slowly); no cats. A fenced yard is a requirement; no underground fencing. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Tennessee
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Tennessee Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
