Luna is a 2-year-old orange and white purebred Brittany from Remchester Brittanys in Tennessee. Her parents and many of her siblings are champion hunters and gun dogs. We have not trained her to hunt, although she has been introduced to it and I have no doubt she would learn quickly and well. If you are a hunting family, she would be a perfect match for you. She has been trained in nosework and obedience. She's extremely intelligent and is a great cuddler (she will want to sleep in bed with you and cuddle with you on the couch.) She is very prey driven so will not do well in a home with cats. However, she gets along with most dogs, and I think she would benefit from being in a home with other dogs, if they would appreciate a playful companion. She is a bit of a bull in a china shop around children, although she loves kids.

If you are wanting to adopt Luna, you need to be willing to provide for her extensive energy needs. She will not tolerate being in her crate for more than a couple hours a day (so no one who is away from home 8 hours a day.) A fenced-in yard would serve you well. She loves to go for walks and hikes, although, as a hunting dog, she does pull on the leash. We have done some training around this, but more is needed. Training of all sorts helps stimulate her mind, and is necessary in addition to physical exercise in order to tire her out. A perfect family would be an active individual or couple, who wants to hike all day (or run, or hunt) and cuddle all night. Someone who has experience owning a dog and can be consistent with training. You will be rewarded with the smartest, sweetest dog you could imagine, who wants to be by your side all day long.

You must be willing to stay in touch with her breeder. They like to know where their dogs are and how they are doing. They are also available to you forever for any questions, advice, or support. We also strongly prefer be updated on how she is getting along, and possibly visit from time to time, if that works for everyone.

Luna is the sweetest, most loving dog, and I hope we can find the perfect humans for her. We will request a site visit and interview to make sure she is going to the right home. If it isn't obvious, we love her very much!

She is spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on all vet care. She is house trained and crate trained (we crate her when we leave the house). She has been well socialized and has no problems with touch on any areas of her body. She loves all people.

Please let me know if you have any questions or want to meet her!

We adopted Gatsby in January from Asheville Humane Society. He's totally litter box and "outside toilet" trained and up to date with all his shots. He's a truly beautiful guy who is gentle with humans and very playful. He loves to stretch out long and invite you to rub his belly. He's a very vocal cat and will let you know how he's feeling. The vet thinks this is because he has a lot of Siamese in him. If you need a mouser, he's your guy.

Gatsby has been going outside during the day at our house, but we keep him in at night to avoid coyotes, who are active in our area. He just adores being outside and quickly learned to use our cat-flaps to go in and out. However, he gets frustrated at night when we won't let him out and will meow early in the morning rather loudly through the house. While he gets along kind of OK with our male cat, Gatsby is not being nice to our female cat, who is half his size. This is our main reason for re-homing him.

I think Gatsby would do well in a house with children, since he lived with toddlers at his previous home and never bites or scratches humans. He has lived with dogs in the past and is bold and brazen enough to handle them, I would think. He might do OK with another male cat who is also quite dominant, or at least one who can stand up to him. It would be best for him to be indoor/outdoor with cat-flap access.

Gatsby can be a bit shy with people for the first five minutes or so, but quickly warms up, and when you open a can, you are his friend for life.

Feel free to give us a call and come and meet him with no pressure whatsoever. We will give his new owner a cat carrier, litterbox, some started catlitter and catfood, and his next dose of flea medicine.

Please give this beautiful, loving cat a chance. It breaks our heart to let him go.

Hi everyone! I'm looking for a new home for my dog Barron. He's a two and a half-year-old hound. Extremely smart, willing to learn, and has lots of energy. I simply can't keep him anymore because of the amount of responsibility he brings. That being said, he is not a difficult dog, he simply needs to live in a home with a big yard and a person who can give him much more attention than I can. He would be an excellent hiking partner! I'll give you all the dog supplies I have for him, and any food left. He's such a beautiful, loyal, and loving dog, I just want a better home for him where he can be outside more and have more consistent stimulation.

Bowser is a Canaan Dog between the ages of 10-12. Don't let his age fool you, Bowser loves to hike, play fetch, and is friendly with the majority of other dogs. Bowser does have a small growth on the back of his neck, his previous owners said it is just a fatty growth. Bowser can be a bit timid and shy at times, he may take a few greetings to really warm up to you. He loves belly rubs, butt scratches, and his toys. His loves his toy hedgehog the most. Bowser has lived with cats in the past, and had no issues with them. Though Bowser likes other dogs, we don't know if he would enjoy sharing a living space with a doggo companion he doesn't know very well. To our knowledge Bowser has been raised around children of all ages. He is a herding dog, with herding instincts. He does not like loud noises, or abrupt yelling, as he can be startled easily. He is a great dog, and deserves a great home that loves him as much as he does them. He is a very loyal dog, and knows many commands. He loves to cuddle on the couch, and run around in the yard. He is the best of both worlds.

Wilbur is a a great dog. He is playful, tender-hearted, loving and obedient. He is potty trained, doesn't destroy things, and loves to go for walks. He likes to play with other dogs but I think he needs to be in a home where he gets all the attention.

He jumps over our 4 foot chain link fence to socialize, so we feel we can't keep him safe. He LOVES to jump! He would be a great jogging buddy

Lulu is a 4 year old pit bull/bulldog mix with the mellow personality of a dog twice her age. She is an EASY dog for even the first time dog owner and would make a great therapy dog. Lulu would love to find a home with (in no particular order) - couches, children, car rides, and cuddling. Bonus points if you can provide all four!
Lulu loves her crate and is perfect on leash. Lulu is in a foster home with cats and dogs and is interested in her furry friends but much prefers mellow dogs who don’t pester her too much.

June Bug likes to snuggle, play in the woods, go for walks, run on the treadmill, and to swim. She loves her people and is a loyal friend.
She is looking for a home where she doesn't have to share her love. Someone who is experienced with her breed, and will give her a chance. She will be your best snuggle buddy.
Not good with chickens or small animals, cats, and other dogs. She shows aggression towards other dogs around food and does not like to be cornered by other dogs. She has never bitten a human, but no small kids either.

Buddy is a sweet, loving 6-7 year old Flat-Haired Retriever. He loves people and is a gorgeous dog. I work full-time and don't have the ability to spend the quality time with him that I would like. Buddy is very active and needs someone that can spend lots of time with him to play and run. He needs a fenced yard and the opportunity to run regularly. He isn't interested in small children, and would do best as the only dog in the family.

Buddy is housebroken, neutered, and up to date on all vaccines.

I love this dog and want him to have the loving family that he deserves. Please don't hesitate to call with any questions and to meet this sweetheart! Buddy will be the love of your life!

Loving and very sweet family dog, but needs a large area to run around outside. Connor has been raised as an inside dog and is crate trained and house trained. He has a need to be the biggest dog in the group, so he gets along very well with smaller dogs.

Connor knows basic commands such as “sit”, “shake”, and “lie down”. While he has been raised with cats, he has a tendency to chase them. May not be a good fit if you have cats.

If you are able to provide a consistent exercise routine (regular walking, backyard area to run around in, etc.), Connor will be your ideal pet! Another dog would be ideal but not required, as he is very social.

Bear is a 45 lb, 2 year old lab/Australian Sheppard mix. We adopted him at eight weeks old from the Humane Society in Greenville, South Carolina. The only reason we are rehoming him is because we have an older small dog which he has attacked on several occasions as he gets older. We thought we could get him some help but unfortunately- it's not working out. Bear is a loving soul that loves his people and loves to play ball. We have had the privilege of caring him and are heartbroken we have to rehome him. He would do best with older children or a household with no small children. We have children 9 yrs + BUT we wouldn't want to chance by saying he could be good being climbed over and poked and prodded by a toddler. He loves to be close to those he loves and he doesn't want to share that with another animal. He has shown some resource guarding when around other animals too. We want him to go to a loving home and to someone who can really be active and give him lots of attention. Bear is great at hiking and running and really needs a fenced in yard so he can tool around. Bear is an inside dog and wants to be apart of the family. He does have some anxiety being in his crate so someone who works from home would be ideal for him. He will come with his crate, toys, blankets and bones. We are offering 6 months of healthcare and dog food to his new owners and home. We would love for Bear to still be apart of our lives and hoped we could find someone who would allow us to see him throughout the years and provide pictures and updates. Also we would take Bear back if his new home didn't work out for any reason....

Raven is a beautiful terrier and Great Dane mix. She is spayed and up to date on all vaccines and has no health concerns. She is not getting along with my other dog, which is a therapy dog and we have to keep that pet for our family. Raven needs a home where she is by herself preferably. She has been with other dogs in boarding situations and has never had a problem. We want her to find the wonderful home that she deserves! Please call to meet this gorgeous lady.

LOKI
Looking for a Forever home! Recently had to move into a smaller home with two cats and two huskies. It has become extremely challenging to keep the cats and dogs separated in the smaller home and need to rehome both cats as soon as possible for their safety. I have tried managing the situation for a while now because I don’t want to give them up, but it’s in their best interest. You can follow them on Instagram for additional photos and video. Their profile can be found under the username loki_and_lucy_2017.

Loki is an indoor/outdoor tabby cat that is 3 1/2 years old and weighs approximately 7 lbs. He would love to be able to play and hunt outside during the day, and then come indoors in the evening to eat and snuggle with you. He’s a great lap cat. If you garden, he will keep you company and even help dig! He’s capable of defending himself and does well with cat friendly dogs. I don't believe he would do well with another cat other than Lucy. Loki’s sibling Lucy is also up for adoption. They’re great playmates and definitely love each other. I would prefer for them to be adopted together, but am willing for them to be adopted separately. Please refer to Lucy’s profile for additional information. Loki has been neutered and is up to date on his shots. He’s in excellent health. Glad to provide office visit records.

Lucy is 3 years old and very petite (~5 lbs). Her coat is white with black dots. She is strictly an indoor cat, extremely submissive and does not defend herself against dogs. The only paw she’s ever raised is when she’s playing with my other cat. She’s a bit of a hippy kitty and a very sweet little girl. Lucy’s sibling Loki is also up for adoption. They’re great playmates and definitely love each other. I would prefer for them to be adopted together, but am willing for them to be adopted separately. Lucy would go well with cat friendly dogs and non-aggressive cats. Please refer to Loki’s profile for additional pictures and information. Lucy has been spayed and is up to date on her shots. She’s in excellent health. Glad to provide office visit records.

Kale is a shepherd mix who weighs approximately 45 pounds. He will be 5 years old this spring. He is energetic and a great outdoor companion for hiking, jogging, etc. When you bring him inside he wants nothing more than to cuddle up with a nice pillow. He cannot be in a home with cats or other small animals, he has a very strong prey drive (he does fine with chickens though). He currently lives in a home with another dog his size, however he is very dominant and can be food aggressive. For this reason we would like him to find a home where he is the only animal. He is tolerant of small children, but much prefers older ones - he loves to run and jump and play ball. He is neutered, up to date on all of his shots and has no medical conditions. He will come with his crate, dog bed, leash and food container.
