BREED: American Bulldog Mix
AGE: 1.5 years old
HEALTH: Neutered, fully vaccinated, micro chipped
BEHAVIOR: Good with all humans, good with dogs, will chase cats
Hi! My name is Dug. I am about a year and a half old and weigh about 50 lbs. I think I am an American Bulldog mix (like the dog Chance in the movie Homeward Bound).
I am a sweet boy and I like to cuddle with my people and enjoy my doggie friends I live with. No cats live there, but I think I could get used to living with those too.
I like my toys and dog beds. I know my basic commands and walk well on a leash. I like car rides with my people. I take treats very politely. I am looking for a home of my own. Will you give me a chance??


BREED: Golden Retriever/Shepherd mix
AGE: 3 years old
HEALTH:Neutered, vaccinated, chipped
BEHAVIOR:Housebroken, crate trained, agility savvy!
Hello, my name is Ace. I was a stray in a small town in Alabama. I was picked up and taken to a rural shelter where I was sad and lonely. Thankfully, Adopt a Golden Knoxville bailed me out, now I'm safe and happy. I’m a three year old Golden Retriever/Shepherd mix, which makes me an incredibly athletic and fun dog. I can jump high, run fast, and think I would be a great Frisbee, or agility dog. Hiking, walking, and running are activities I would love to do with my new mom or dad. Even though I am an active guy, I like chilling out with my foster mom - I lay at her feet, and cuddle with her. I love playing with my toys, especially the squeaky kind! I am housebroken, perfectly healthy, crate trained, friendly with dogs, fine with cats, and a proud graduate of US Canine. While there, I worked on manners and trust. My perfect home would be a quiet home with another dog, or not, one or two adults, or a family with older kids who would continue the training I received from US Canine. I can't wait to meet my forever family! Please check out my Instagram page: agk_ace. Love, Ace


NAME: Venti
BREED: Pitbull mix
GENDER: Female
AGE: Senior - she was found in a parking lot so we do not her exact age
HEALTH: Spayed, fully vaccinated, chipped
BEHAVIOR: Happy go lucky pup
​Meet Venti!! Venti is a senior Pitbull mix. Very sweet, loves everyone she meets but we have not put her with other dogs yet. She has had puppies at some point but is spayed and current on all vaccines . She was found at a local restaurant called Pizzeria Venti, hence the name . She does have a microchip but it is not registered to the person who had her most recently ... which is fine with us because they didn't take care of her anyways. She is crate trained , loves to ride in cars and still has lots of energy and play in her. She gets very excited and spins in circles. She also loves to chase the tennis ball. Venti would be the ideal dog for someone that could give her all of the attention.

AGE: 8 years old
GENDER: Female
HEALTH: Spayed, fully vaccinated, chipped
BEHAVIOR: Does okay with other dogs but would prefer to be the only dog, loves all people, couch dog
Hi I'm Hallie! I am an 8 year old female black lab mix girl. I'm very active and healthy for my age. I'm not too big, only about 50 pounds. My previous owner became ill and was no longer able to care for me. I LOVE to run in a big yard. I love my humans but am a little cautious of other dogs .I am currently in a foster home in Massachusetts with other dogs and do ok with them... however I would also love to have all of the attention to myself. I need a home with someone who is dog savvy and can help me with my ongoing training. I am looking for a laid back house where I will have people around most of the time, I want nothing more than to hang out right by your side. So what do you say? I am the girl for you?
