Is still a big puppy and gets worked up quick and excited easily. Not a lot of impulse control yet. She is So soft, shiny black with a white chest, half of her left eye is crystal blue. She is gorgeous and sweet, Callie deserves to live her full life out with a person who loves her and can train her well.

She loves feeding time but will be wary of the food you give her for the first few weeks. She has a loving personality, but it will take some time for it to come out as she wants ...

Pit Bull Mix   

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Malnourished 

    We had a black and white male pit bull show up at our home in rural Coffee County over Easter weekend. He is very sweet and lovable with adults and children. Did show some signs of jealousy and protectiveness when other animals were present. Got into our truck and jumped onto our utility cart and rode around without prompting. Very sweet dog. We will not be able to keep him as we have 4 cats and a small dog. It will break my heart to have to call animal control to pick him up.

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We have multiple dogs in our house, and as he got older he doesn't seem to get along with any of them that well. This is why it is preferred that the adopter doesn't have any other dogs. He is good with people, but I wouldn't risk small children or babies since he isn't used to them (he might play too rough).

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    He was neglected, starved, and HW positive as a young pup. He has overcome much of this, is fat and happy and friendly. I will only adopt out to the right persons, and I will always check on him. If you don't like this...stop reading now, you cant have him. If you are ok with this and are a person with good intentions, contact me for more information. You will adore him if you meet him but only preapproved humans will get that chance. He is a couch potato, loves his ball and is a happy guy. Prefers outside on daytime, inside at night. HE is about 6. His teeth were filed down as they were planning on him being a bait dog.....he needs soft ... (Read More)foods. He was treated for HW. docile and other dog friendly. Love humans despite what he has been thru. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Chevy is a 2 yr old pit who has had all her shots, is fixed and chipped. She is very strong and is starting to show signs of aggression towards others. She has never bitten anyone but is very territorial and I live with all my neighbors being elderly and can't take the chance of her getting off her chain and hurting anyone. I love this animal and she's very loyal to me but I have health issues myself and she pulls me like a rag doll and my back can't handle it anymore.

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

    This beautiful Pit Bull was abandoned by a selfless piece of crap and was found at Mr.D's Automotive in Piney Flats Tennessee. He is very sweet, brown, neutered, male, house broken, obedience trained to sit, stay , heal and down. We want this great fur baby to go to a good home. He likes to stay inside. He has a Microchip Number 981020013416011 that is registered to Elizabethton Animal Hospital in Elizabethton Tennessee but the owner never registered his chip. He has had a collar because the imprint is still there. We have been calling him Chip because of his unknown Microchip owner.

    Dog is a very sweet, loving girl who enjoys attention and being around people. She is an energetic and playful dog, but also loves to cuddle. Before we had her, we believe she may have had an abusive past involving dog fighting, which is why she does not get along well with other animals. Dog is very loving and loyal, and I have no doubt that she would do anything to defend her owner(s). If you would like to meet her, have questions, or any concerns whatsoever, please contact us immediately. I will be very receptive to emails at necxco@gmail.com, but phonecalls are also welcome.

    My name is Rocket, and they call me 'Rocketman' around here. I'm that fast! What I mostly go for is food. Yep. I'm an American Bulldog hog. I LOVE it. I seek it out. It's my everything. But I want you to be my everything too and take me home with you! I've started having a huge amount of angst and anxiety toward men and other dogs now, so they will be careful where they place me. I need hugs and blankets, and stuffed animals! And treats! I'll do anything for a treat. I'm a hunk of burning love for my treats! If I sound like a dog you could share your home, and food with, then look no further. I'll even go on a jogging regime with you if you ... (Read More)want! I am heartworm negative, microchipped, and weigh a trim 55 pounds. I'm ready for life on a couch! My ancestry is American Bulldog with a few other breeds probably thrown in there. Come adopt me and see what a true couch potato looks like! Rocket is a male pitbull mix found as a stray on Davis Street. He is brown in color and was wearing a collar with a lock on it. He is very much improved now on weight and has really come around so he is available to adopt or rescue. He has been fully vetted and is heartworm negative and microchipped. He has high anxiety toward the other dogs and will latch onto another dog if given the chance. He also has really started growling at barking at men who have come to visit him.

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-31-00507Roman (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    One look at Roman's face, neck and legs; and you'll know his history up to when he was rescued. The intake photos of this (likely) bait dog (too graphic to include here) show he couldn't have been a great competitor in the ring. When his owners fled the area, he was left behind, chained without food or water but with open tear wounds festering and a collar so tight, it was embedded in his neck. Turn the page on this sweet boy, and you'll find a heart full of love for the kindness of our volunteers and the strangers who subsequently showed him compassionate attention. He's such a grateful cuddle bug, he'll work his way onto your lap on the ... (Read More)sofa or lean against you for a massage if you're standing. Roman is about four years old, weighs a strong 45 pounds, and responds cheerfully to every human he's met since entering our program. He's up to date on all shots, neutered, heartworm negative, microchipped, and on preventatives for parasites. Quite the food-motivated hound, Roman is attending obedience classes and is doing great with his sit, down and heel commands. 'Stay' is a tough assignment for such an exuberant dog; but he's getting there. His wag motor is always in high gear (watch that tail!), and he especially enjoys soft toys and an energetic game of tug. Roman has also now graduated from basic obedience training and ready to learn more! Most of the time Roman's happy with canine neighbors, but you can't blame him for an occasional tendency to be suspicious of their intentions. For this reason, we are seeking an adoptive household with no other pets. If you have a soft spot in your heart for a dog that has surfaced from a miserable, tortured existence and bounded into a life of happy playfulness and eagerness to learn what you have to teach him, then Roman may be the perfect 'best friend' for you!

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Deaf 

    Trinity is a 75 pound Pitbull mix. Possibly American Bulldog. She is totally white and totally deaf. She had some ear issues and surgeries in the beginning and has some allergies, but was determined she just needs to be on allergy meds (generic Claritin - very cheap) and eat grain free food. She is totally sweet to all dogs. Loves people and kids and is gentle as can be. She is looking for her forever home. She was going to be adopted by a Lifehouse Board Member so we had her off adoption for awhile but we determined that she a very adoptable dog, so since this board member constantly has so many dogs fostering, decided to let her get ... (Read More)adopted out and have a family that is home more than her current foster home can be due to job/travel and rescue work. Trinity's adoption fee is $150. This is $50 less than our typical fee of $200 because her foster mom is sponsoring $50 of her fee to an approved applicant. This covers her basic vetting of spay, vaccines updated, heartworm test and prevention (she is heartworm negative), deworming and current flea meds. (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.
