Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Jaxson was found, badly injured, on the side of the road. He was covered in bite wounds that took weeks to heal after surgery, several stitches, and a round of antibiotics. We'll never know exactly what happened to him before he came to us, whether he was a bait dog, attacked by a wild animal or something else, but we do know that it hasn't phased him one bit! He is such a sweet and goofy character; you can't help but smile when you're around him. He has a lot of energy so he'd do best with an active family. He is super sweet and though he has a lot of energy he also loves to cuddle and he knows how to relax. He is a very smart boy and is already house trained. Jaxson will make a wonderful addition to the right loving family! His date of birth is 8/16/13.For more information about this animal and other please visit our website at fayettefcar.com or contact us at 901/854-2565.

More About American Pit Bull Terrier 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.

      Puff

      rescue
      Breed: Affenpinscher-Dachshund Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Rossville, TN
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Affenpinscher / Mixed. We don't know what Puff is mixed with but she looks like a dachshund mix. Her date of birth is about 12-4-04. Puff is a very shy dog, however she does very well at her foster mom's house where she has gotten comfortable and can play with all of the other dogs. She is very sweet and curls up next to us and loves belly rubs, but she needs the freedom to hide in the trees when she is scared and curl up on the couch when things are calm for some love. Her forever home will be a very calm and quiet household with no small children and at least one other dog (the more dogs the better). She loves to play with other dogs and comes out of her shell when she has canine playmates. She loves to come in the house and taps very nicely at the door when she wants to come in. Puff will require a very special forever home and will require a supreme amount of patience and love to get her past her shyness. She is truly a very sweet dog but she does best where the routine is consistent and she can find her comfort zone. If you have at least one other dog that loves to play and understand that some dogs just need extra love to make up for a tough childhood then give us a call about our girl, Puff. It is past time for her to have a forever home, we have had her since she was about 5 months old. Puff has been spayed, is current on all shots, is on Frontline Flea & Tick prevention, Interceptor for heartworm prevention, is microchipped, and comes with a 30 day pet health guarantee. The adoption fee is $95.For more information about this animal and other please visit our website at fayettefcar.com or contact us at 901/854-2565.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Rossville, TN
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier. Tiffany is healthy and weighs about 65 lbs. Her date of birth is about 11-1-01. She is very high energy and is so smart that she will be very easy to train. Her favorite thing to do is roll over on her back and beg you to rub her tummy! We take her out in the play yard and she will run fast as she can but if she gets within 5 feet of anyone she does a diving roll onto her back to get her belly rubbed. She is a sweetheart. She is crate trained and does use the doggy door at the shelter to go outside and potty. We have had her for years, and since she is a little older, she is not as active, but she would still need plenty of exercise. She is a beauty. Tiffany has been spayed, is current on all shots, is on flea & tick prevention, and heartworm prevention, is microchipped, and comes with a 30 day pet health guarantee. The adoption fee is $50 with an approved application.For more information about this animal and other please visit our website at fayettefcar.com or contact us at 901/854-2565.

      Breed: Border Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Rossville, TN
      Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Border Collie / Mixed. We found Rocket & his brother Granger (who has been adopted but you'll see in the pictures) on the side of a road in Somerville. They were born around 04/05/05. They went right into foster care and from the start they have been healthy, energetic boys. Rocket currently weighs about 45 lbs and is very thick. He absolutely adores water - he has his own kiddie swimming pool during the summer and if he can't get to that then his water bucket will do just fine. He loves toys and he runs like the wind through the yard. He is housetrained and he would make a phenomenal pet. He does beautifully in the house, very mellow, is a good listener and is a huge snuggler. He can be very shy at first but after he gets to know you he is very outgoing. He finished an obedience training at Dogwoods and now knows how to sit, stay, lay down, heel, come, etc. He is very bright and loves treats so he has been a dream to train. He does seem to get scared at adoption day by children though, so we recommend a home without small kids. And in his older years, he has become a loner, when it comes to other dogs, he prefers to be a single dog. Rocket has been neutered, is current on all shots, is on Frontline Flea & Tick prevention, Interceptor for heartworm prevention, is microchipped, and comes with a 30 day pet health guarantee. The adoption fee is $95.For more information about this animal and other please visit our website at fayettefcar.com or contact us at 901/854-2565.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Rossville, TN
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Grant was seized as the result of a cruelty investigation in 2005. He and 5 other puppies were crammed into a rabbit cage without any food or water. They were so neglected and traumatized that they were all painfully shy. Grant has lived with us ever since. We really wish he could find a home for him to live out his golden years. He is a shy old man but with time and a few treats he comes out of his shell. He loves other dogs and gets confidence from them so he'd prefer a home with another dog. He is a good boy who would love to finally know what it means to have a family of his very own! Be sure and watch his video. His date of birth is 12/04/04. Grant has been neutered, is current on all shots, is on flea & tick prevention, and heartworm prevention, is microchipped, and comes with a 30 day pet health guarantee.

      Location: Rossville, TN
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Blue was abandoned with her brother, Bravo, near our shelter when they were only 5 months old. She was very thin and almost completely bald, due to a severe case of mange. She also had a badly broken pelvis, which we believe was the result of being hit by car. It took several months of care and a major surgery to repair her hip, but she has now completely recovered and she's looking for a home of her own! Blue is a shy girl; it takes time for her to trust new people, but when she does she is a sweet and playful girl. Once she gets to know you she is an excellent snuggler and she loves to play with toys too! She loves other dogs and would prefer to go to a home with another dog. She is also house trained. Blue is a great dog, she will make a great addition to a patient and loving family that will give her the time she needs to let her true personality shine! Her date of birth is 12/12/12. Blue has been spayed, is current on all shots, is on flea & tick prevention, and heartworm prevention, is microchipped, and comes with a 30 day pet health guarantee.
