    Hi, my name is Layla. I am SUUUUPER loyal to my owner. However, if I am around other dogs, at my house, or theirs, I can become super territorial. I have been in dog training. I am usually fine at dog parks with other dogs, yet I will bite another dog if I am at their house, or if they are at mine. My dog owner is scared that I might really harm another dog to the point of death, and is looking for someone that could love on me. I would be great for a farm.

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults

    Moe is one of the two that made it out of his litter. The old owner to his mom and dad had killed the whole litter except for moe and bo (his litter mate). Moe is currently in a pen because he will not stay on the property. He will need a fenced in yard where he can get a lot of love and attention. He is currently living somewhere that he is not getting the attention and discipline he needs. He loves to play and run. He has always been an outdoor dog so he is not house trained. Gets along with his brother unless they have a bone. He would be a great guard dog for someone. For more pictures and info contact Jessica at(731) 535-9891. Text ... (Read More)would be best. (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Hi, I'm Zoey and I'm sure you have met my mini-me daughter Tiny. I know she has already told most of you how we came to rescue, so here is our story again..through my daughters eyes. We used to live...well survive from the kindness of strangers. You see, we were chained in a back yard, we didn't have anything to keep the sun or rain off of us and we didn't have anything to eat. Our tummy's hurt so much and we would cry, we cried all night from hunger. There was a nice family next door, that lived behind a big fence, they heard our cries and started tossing food over the fence for us. Then they must have sneeked a look at us and saw how ... (Read More)skinny we were because they called someone and next thing we knew some wonderful ladies were there taking us to a place that was warm, dry and had plenty of food for us to eat and they give us love here. We know now that heros, really do exist. As you can tell I'm smooth chow mix but what you may not realize is Chows are great dogs, they are quiet, clean, beautiful, loving, loyal, smart and have awesome purple tongues. The ladies here aren't sure what I am mixed with but they say I have an amazingly friendly personality, I love everyone and have shown no issues whatsoever. So wha are you waiting for??Please apply for me online at or email us at and we will send you one. I am spayed, UTD on my vaccinations. *I am also heartworm positive but will be treated at no additional cost to my adopter* (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chow Chow in Tennessee
    Chow Chow Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee if they match your IifestyIe. The Chow Chow is a big furry breed whose name literally means Puffy Lion Dog. Chow Chows are loyal companion animals but can sometimes be stubborn, obstinate, and overprotective against strangers. Chow chows need to be handled by a firm master. Chow chows can be aggressive with other pets but most are good with kids. Chow chows can live in an apartment and are equally good as inside or outside dogs. Daily walks help stave off behavior problems, although Chow Chows can be resistant to exercise.
