HELLO POTENTIAL ADOPTERS, 'PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION BELOW.' Our rescue doesn't have an actual shelter building in your area or mine. Therefore, it is not possible to meet the dogs and pups in person prior to their adoption. All of the puppy's and dogs are located in either TN, Arkansas, GA or KY, and will come north on a USDA transport once they are adopted. Please do not send an email inquiring about a dog, just fill out the adoption application then when it is received questions can be answered. If I only answer emails then I can't make calls to the people that have filled out the adoption application and that is not fair to the people that read the description and instructions. Thanks so much for understanding. Dashing Dakota who's mom is part Labrador Retriever, was found by a local resident wandering in the woods. She asked all around the area and no one knew who he belonged to, so the local animal officer got him to safety with Ms Carol and her rescue. He eats, sleeps, plays, and then repeat the process. He is around lots of other dogs and cats and is great buddies with all of them. You are going to get a great puppy that is going to grow into a beautiful dog. ADOPTION IS $360. $100.00 was donated towards his adoption fee, SO NOW IT IS $260. and he is all vetted and comes with a microchip . Transport via 'Alpha Dog Transport' is $140.
