Posted Breed: Plott Hound / American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Robyn's Nest Animal Rescue & Sanctuary Nashville, TN email: rbynesnest@yahoo.com Clive is one gorgeous boy ..he has the most amazing 'houndstooth' pattern in his fur, combined with the unique diluted colors he is stunning. Clive was originally rescued a few years back and was adopted to a wonderful home, unfortunately after a year in his new home his family split up and no one could take him where they were relocating. This family took lots of wonderful pictiresnof Clive he even has his own instagram hashtag #clivetheplotthound. As is our policy, we always welcome the dogs back into our program. His previous foster welcomed him back with open arms. But, something was different about him, he still loved the cats, bit now he was being reactive to other dogs...we soon learned that at his previous home a stray dog jumped into his back yard and attacked him...his previous adopters never told us this had happened. We have worked hard with Clive and a trainer...but unfortunately after several months it has been decided that Clive needs a home with no other dogs, he deserves that...a forever home and a life not living in fear he is gojng to be attacked. A home with cats is fine (as long as they are dog savy). Clive is a very loving dog, he likes long walks or just hanging in his fenced in yard. He enjoys afternoon naps on the sofa watching TV or curled up on the dog bed in the kitchen. His favorite toys are ones with squeakers that he loves to free from their bondage. He like chewing on bully sticks & nylabones too!! We have some adorable video clips of Clive we can share with you. He loves to play 'King of the mountain' on they old car in the yard and sit on the roof watching the sunset. A required vet reference and a home visit are needed. I am an indoor dog with outdoor privileges. All of our dogs are house & crate trained. Homes with fenced in yards are preferred. All our pets are spayed/neutered, and up to date on their shots prior to adoption. Adoption fee of $185 and goes towards the cost of care for this pet and future animals we rescue. Depending on adopter's location transportation fees may apply if the adopter is out of state we use licensed professional transports and their fees range from $150-$185. You must complete an application before being able to visit a dog. If you expect to leave the dog alone for long periods of time, please do not consider adopting a puppy. Puppies need lots of attention and companionship. Upon interest in one of our dogs, please send an email inquiry to rbynsnest@yahoo.com and tell a little bit about your family, an adoption application will be sent to you. A complete application is reguired before a meet-n-greet or home visit by us with the dog to ascertain the fit between dog and family. Meet-n-Greets are by appointment only. Please note that we require you to be age 21 or older to adopt a dog. Vet references and a home visit required. I am an indoor dog with outdoor privileges. All of our dogs are house & crate trained. Homes with fenced in yards are preferred. All our pets are spayed/neutered, and up to date on their shots prior to adoption.

Request to Add a New Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
