Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Little Bit is a 11 week old Beagle/Chi mix at best guess. This poor girl was literally dumped in the middle of the road at 5 weeks old while the owners just drove off. Thankfully a Good Samaritan saw this happen and picked her up and took her to the local shelter who contacted us and we took her in that day. She had a bit of a rough start, but pulled through and now is a happy, healthy almost 8 lbs girl. She is up to date on her shots and will be spayed on August 5th. She loves to play with my other foster pups and does great with my big dogs too. She enjoys her quiet time chewing on toys and relaxing. We have started working on potty ... (Read More)training but like all puppies, it is something that will need to continue to be worked on with his new family who will offer him a lot of love, support and training. We expect she will be a small/medium sized dog when full grown. She has a nice, soft coat and lots of spunk and personality! Little Bit is currently located in Tennessee and the adoption fee is $250. Transportation may be available to out of state adopters for an additional cost. If you would like to adopt Little Bit please fill out our online adoption application at http://safehaventn.com/ (Less)

    Kovu is a sweetheart! He is so playful and cuddly (look at those ears!) and will not get much bigger than he is right now. (around 5 lbs.)

Her and her mother have given us permission to proceed with looking for him a great home. She paid for 2 rounds of puppy shots and his neutering procedure, that's why she is asking for the $200, to ... (Read More)re-coup some of the cost.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    OREO is a black and white 7 year old male Chihuahua who needs a good home and some TLC. He has been neutered. He weighs 6 pounds. Oreo has a heart condition that requires he be on medications for the rest of his life (Enalapril & lasix). He is anemic and is currently on Val Syrup but that may not be required his entire lifetime. He had to have almost all of his teeth removed due to infection, may have two teeth left, so he requires soft food and because of the heart condition, to keep his kidney function at appropriate levels, he must eat prescription Purina NF Kidney Function or Science Diet KD canned food. Oreo is good with other dogs ... (Read More)and has not been around cats. He does get a bit grouchy at times but is getting better with time. When he first came to his foster home, he did not welcome human touch at all, he was very fearful and growled/nipped every time he was approached. Oreo would do best in a home with no children or older children who do NOT want to cuddle him. His ideal day is lounging in his bed in front of the door soaking up the sun OR in the recliner beside his person. He is not very active but does get around pretty good considering he has some old injuries to his back. Oreo is house trained and crate trained. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Oreo if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue to cover part of the cost of the veterinary care he has received. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in Tennessee
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee if they match your IifestyIe. Chihuahuas are high strung, yappy, tiny dogs. Chihuahuas are loyal to the point of possessiveness and obsession with their masters. Chihuahuas are bold, high energy dogs that make wonderful companions for their owners but are suspicious of strangers. Chihuahuas are not well suited to families with children due to the dogs' defensiveness and tendency to snap when provoked. Chihuahuas need to be thoroughly socialized. Despite their small size, Chihuahuas are often aggressive with other dogs. Chihuahuas do fine living in an apartment but need plenty of daily exercise.

lnteresting Chihuahua Trivia Low-Cost Tennessee Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world. Chihuahuas were sacred animals to pre-Columbian Native Americans.
