Dunkel
Age: 8-10 wks
Sex: male
will be neutered prior to adoption

  !

ADOPTED BY THE McHONE FAMILY - 11/04/16

Introducing Dunkel. Yes, closed to intake but what do you say when a relationship Shelter calls you with a very local (less than 5 miles away) pup in need? A probable infective skin condition and no safe place to hold and treat? You go meet the little and just grab him and take him home. Yep, they know a softie when they see one but our core shelters also know they come first and we try our best to help a beagle in need. Sometimes we can and sometimes we cannot but with pending transport Dunkel landed at just the right time. He is on quarantine hold and paws crossed he stays healthy and we can get him back on track. Should be available for adoption early-mid October.

Gemma here, checking in. I haven't had much to say lately as I am just now getting my bearings after raising a family. You may remember me from several months back, see last photo, I am mom to the adopted Sons of Anarchy litter.

I hear them say that I am akin to what many call a Puppymill dog but instead of a mill I was owned by an older hunter that had given up hunting and for the last few years barely interacted with us at all. I can't ever remember a time when I was held, petted, talked to or loved. You see I was born about the time he "retired" from hunting. Also, like many hunters he believed that socializing would limit my desire and focus on hunting so I never got to feel those human snuggles, give puppy face licks, fall asleep in a warm human embrace, etc. I was surrendered, along with another mom and pups, to a KY shelter ready to pop pregnant and scared out of my wits.

I am still very scared but Miss Beth can approach me slowly and I will stay. She can pick me up. She is doing this hug thing I am not too sure about, swaddling me and holding me until I relax. She says it helped her Faye overcome her fears and I see how much Faye loves her so I endure it. I got away the other day but I stayed close and eventually ended up back in the backyard when they closed the gates. That 24 hours on my own in the city was very very scary but I am just now settling back.

I am looking for a family that will accept me as I am and help me become the dog someone can love. I know I am not easy, I do get along with other dogs, loud sounds and such scare me, I may run or forget who you are but you can see in my eyes I want to love and trust. I just need your patience, a secure/quiet home, repeat loving/slow interaction and time to do so. I wag my tail at Miss Beth and come close when she calls but I am just not quite ready for a full fledged relationship, I need a bit of wooing first.

Can you help me become whole? Can you open your heart and home to what many would consider a damaged dog? Can you provide safety, love, time, nurturing and in return, over time, win my trust and heart?

I am located in Knoxville TN. I would also be interested in a 2-4 month foster that has the ability to spend quality time helping me trust.

Dear SantaPaws

My foster mom says it is OK to write so early since all the silly stores already have the Christmas stuff out. My Christmas wish this year is to find my fur-ever home early enough to be part of a two and four-legged family that morning. As much as I love it here playing tug and chasing my older fur sisters, it is time for me to find that special family who needs me as much as I need them.

I have come so far since I arrived here, and my foster mom reminds me of that every day – especially during all my belly rub sessions that she says I get too many of (which is impossible in my eyes). The small door in the wall specially designed for me is so much fun to run in an out of and I keep the back yard mole free! While foster mom is at work, I sleep quietly in my kennel but at night I prefer to share the bed. Recently, I have even discovered how much fun it is to snuggle up on the recliner and fall asleep on a human’s lap. I am extremely food motivated and a fast learner. I will admit that I can still be a bit jumpy to new, fast moving things but I have gotten much better. There is another critter called a cat at this house, but I don’t bother him.

Toys are so much fun and I am a heavy chewer so nylabones are the best for my stocking stuffers.

So SantaPaws, if there is anything you can do to make my Christmas wish come true a bit earlier this year, that would be wonderful. I would even leave you a big bone cookie by the tree on Christmas Day at my new fur-ever home.

Thanks for trying!

Perry the Beagle

More info: Perry is such a happy, energetic girl! She loves to be outside and sniff up a storm - I haven't had much problems with her digging around the fence area at all (she just kept trying to get the mole in my garden lol). She runs and learns from the pack - learned the doggie door in less than 30 minutes once I left it open for her. She initially was afraid to even come in the front door. She does well in a crate while I am gone during the day and loves to snuggle in bed at night. She will occasionally bark to alert once, say her name and she stops and comes running to you. Loves her nylabones and chewing on tuff toys - still learning what is hers so mind what is left on the floor. She evens tries to help you fold the laundry if you leave the hamper on the floor lol. She is very food motivated and learns quick. She responds so well to whistles, I bet she would take to clicker training fast!

Unfortunately, I haven't had the time to try to take her out on leash walks yet. She doesn't try to chase my cat, doesn't mind when my father stays at the house, not kid tested yet and I don't think I would have her around a house with a lot of toys on the floor/real young kids. She loves to play with my other beagles and my golden retriever. Morning, coming home from work and bedtime belly rubs are a must in her life!

Somer
Age: 4-7 yrs.
Sex: female
spayed

  !

Our sweet Somer has had a rough go of it. First dumped at a shelter after years of over-breeding, she just made it off the Euthanasia List after locals worked hard to network her and SOS TN stepped up. At her spay several mammary tumors were removed and
two came back cancer positive, two separate kinds. Based on her estimated age of 4-7 our vets felt a radical mastectomy would give her the best shot. Not an easy surgery to perform or to recover
from as she now had an incision from stem to stern, changing the way she walked, sat, lays, etc.

It has been a long road of recovery with a couple of setbacks. Most recently a flare up of what our vets think is Bells Palsy, then she took a probable tumble (foster heard a thud) on
the foster's deck and hurt her low low back. She has had X-rays and assessments with a muscle injury diagnosis. The medicine/crate rest regimen is working.

We are lucky to have a hidden ace in our pocket. Cynthia, an SOS Beagle adopter and Pellissippi Vet Employee is going through training to become a Certified canine massage therapist with acupressure training. She has worked on Somer a couple of times since her back/Bells issue.

Who knows what the future holds for anyone, we do know that Somer is happy, quirky, short and adorable. She is getting back to sassy and seeking a forever home to love her. Is it you? DARE TO LOVE SOMETHING SPECIAL.

Meet Lucy! Lucy is a sweet adult beagle around 5-6 years old, she is very good with other dogs and she does well with cats. She is not very vocal at all or high energy. Lucy is doing well working on her leash and housetraining skills. She is crate trained.
