Ethel is a two year old miniature schnoxie or possibly a wirehaired dachshund mix. She is available through A.A.R.F. (All About Rescue & Fixin’) in Cookeville, TN. She is very loving, and after she learns to trust you will never leave your side! (Seriously, never, not even when you are in the shower or using the restroom.) She loves snuggles and belly rubs, and is more than willing to help keep the dust out from under your bed in exchange for being allowed to sleep on it! Ethel would love to have a little partner-in-crime/playmate her own size, but would be fine as an only dog as well. Her current foster home has three other dogs, but no kids or cats. We do know that she is fine with older kids, and she has been friendly with smaller kids during adoption events, but she has not been around any cats that we know of! Ethel shares a dog bed with her foster sister at night, and when the alarm goes off she jumps up, tail wagging to ensure that her foster parents do not oversleep. She would also like to add that she is a baby-gate hurdle champion, and is willing to pull her weight by making a careful inventory of your shoes. Ethel is mostly housetrained, crate trained, and walks well on a leash. She can be fearful of strangers due to lack of socialization, but has made great progress in this area. She needs a home that will continue to keep her socialized.

I nap gratuitously in my foster mom’s office as she reads up on training deaf dogs, like me! –Darby
Darby is a happy-go-lucky 1 year old boxer mix from Spencer, IN. He’s being fostered through the Owen County Humane Society. He loves chewing on rawhides, hiking, swimming, and playing with his 4-legged foster sister. Darby is deaf, but picking up hand signals fast. So far, he knows sit, stay, down, and come.

I don’t like wearing my cone of shame so I had an accident on the floor and mommy & daddy put me in timeout. I do not like timeout and wanted to come out and play but got stuck in the process. I had to sit like this for 5 minutes before anyone noticed. -Lily
We have no idea how she got her head and cone through, she may be ashamed she got stuck, but we’re impressed!
Olive jumped the fence to our garden, pulled down all the corn stalks, took bites out of all the watermelons and trampled the green beans. She was kind enough to pull the corn over the fence to share with Bellini that she later vomited all over our bed in the middle of the night. After a summer of work my husband and I each got one ear of corn.
Caption reads, “Mom always laughs at me when I sleep… I’m not sure why.”
Kona, our 10 month old Pitbull/Shepherd mix, always falls asleep in the oddest positions. If she’s not doing some puppy yoga, she’s stretched out on the back of the couch like a cat!
P.S. – She can’t wait for her daddy to come home from Afghanistan!
