Good morning! Or should I say good afternoon?! My name is Juan. I am medium sized boy around 18 months old, 35 lbs and heartworm negative. I was originally dumped out of a car in a very rural area around Christmas time last year. Luckily, someone saw it happen and so I came into rescue. I was adopted somewhat quickly and have really done well, except both I and the other dog I live with have food guarding issues and we are having altercations. You see, we have small kids in our home and they often have food in their hands and drop it. That makes it almost impossible for an altercation not to happen with our food issues. Since the family has had the other dog for years before me, it's only fair that I need to look for a new home. So, please don't get me wrong! I am good with other dogs and kids. I've just been starved before, so I can't help but be protective of it and always try to go for it, especially when the other dog is just like me. So, if there are children in the home or that visit often, it would be best if they were older. I really love to cuddle, as you can see in my pictures! This family has so many nice things to say about me and all the good I possess. I am crate trained and I am also great on a leash. I have gone to doggy day care and done well there as well! So, what are you waiting for?! I'd love to meet you! Complete an application online to meet and potentially adopt me at www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org! My adoption fee is $175.00. I am neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. *PLEASE SUBMIT AN APPLICATION AT RURALANIMALRESCUEEFFORT.ORG **An application and home visit/meet & greet are required prior to adoption. All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have. Our ability to perform out of state adoptions is limited and reviewed on a case by case basis. If you are not in TN, please ask us about the potential of adopting the specific animal you are interested in. Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heart-worm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption.
