Posted Breed: Mountain Cur / Plott Hound / Mixed (short coat). Preston is a gorgeous, brindle male mix with golden eyes. He is approximately 2 years old, but he has spent most of his life locked up in a shelter. He has lived recently in a foster home with several other large and small dogs, a cat and kids. Preston loves everyone! As you would expect with a young boy just sprung from the shelter, he is learning manners and what it means to live inside a home. But he is so sweet, and he is learning very fast. This is one happy, gorgeous boy! :) Preston's adoption fee is $200. This includes his vaccinations, microchip, and neuter. If you're interested to bring Preston into your family, please apply online at www.nashvillepittie.org/adoption_application.html

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.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). 4/14/18 Dolly wandered up to an auto repair shop in Nashville, starving and filthy. She's a very lucky girl as the good folks working at the shop did everything they could to help her. She did test heartworm positive and will be going through treatment over the next two months. She will be available for adoption once we get to know her better and she is clear from heartworm.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). 04/13/18 8 week old Freddy was found a stray by MACC and their medical team suspected that he had a broken leg. MACC immediately reached out to us and we were able to take Freddy into rescue on Friday the 13th. We got Freddy to our v et Friday where x-rays confirmed he did have a fractured femur and that it was in fact fractured in half. We have no idea how this injury occurred but it takes a lot of force and torque to twist the bone for it to break in this way. Our sad little puppy needed to have his leg splinted to stabilize the bone while he awaited an orthopedic surgery to have his femur fixed with plates. He is having his surgery on Monday the 16th. Freddy will be available for adoption when completely healed.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). *** Ollie is currently undergoing treatment for heartworms, she will not be available for adoption until her treatment is complete*** Ollie has tested positive for heartworms. She is currently being fostered by a lady that runs an in-home doggy daycare. This is just not the best environment for Ollie to undergo treatment for her heartworm disease. She has started her pre-injection medication and will need to be on that for at least 30 days prior to her heartworm killing injections. When she receives the injections she will need 30 days of crate rest and minimum activity. We would like to find her a new foster home prior to the injections so that she can get used to a new routine prior to the crate rest. Ollie is fantastic with other dogs large and small. She has not been around cats, but we suspect she may be ok because she is so good with the little pups. She can be a little shy when meeting a new person, but after she warms up to you she is a complete and utter love bug. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application at nashvillepittie.org/adoption

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Olivia sometimes can be a little shy around new people but once she warms up she will love you…and kiss you…and then sit in your lap…then you guys are best friends forever! When she’s not getting right up in your business, and sitting in your lap she adores going on walks. The longer the better. Olivia loves to run too, how else is she going to keep her girlish figure of 70lbs! Not to mention that she reeaaaaallllllly loves food. Olivia will even prove her love for food by showing you she knows how to sit, stay, and lay down However she doesn't always have to be out and about. Olivia also loves to Netflix and boy can she snuggle! Olivia is 3 1/2 years old (24ish in dog years) she has issues with turning 30 so you might not want to mention this. Of course she is crate trained and house broken, up to date on all vaccinations and heart worm prevention. Olivia plays well with most other dogs but prefers dogs her own size or larger. She would do best in a home with no small children.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hello! My name is Samuel and I am a seriously handsome guy looking for my forever person. Don’t let my stature fool you, I am only 1, which means I’m full of that excited pup energy. I am told that I am super smart and that I learn new things very quickly. I love dogs and cats, although sometimes my loves can come off as too strong, so I am working hard on how to be a more polite sibling. I just discovered couch snuggles and like them a lot. I would love a home with someone that is active and will take me to do fun things. A big back yard to run around in would also be awesome. If you are looking for a best friend, I’m your guy! Samuel's adoption fee is $250 which includes his vaccinations for the year, neuter, and microchip. Please apply online at nashvillepittie.org/adoption
