***update*** Last week we posted about Lad as we kicked off a fundraiser to pay for his medical care. We are extremely excited to get to post some new photos showing his progress! 'One vet said he should be put to sleep, that his chances were slim and would be a long hard recovery. Dr. Anderson said let's give him a chance! ......Lad has come from completely paralyzed from the neck down to these pictures today! Standing and taking some wobbly steps!' Thank you to those that have donated. Lad is ready for foster or adoption. We were asked to help sweet Lad after his family no longer felt like he was needed in their lives. He was not mobile and could not even keep himself upright. After his vet exam it was discovered that his vertebra is bone on bone. Under our vet's care and advice, we attempted to improve his quality of life. He is currently undergoing physical and drug therapy to see if we can improve his quality of life. June 22, 2017, 4:26 pm

Hi! My name is Banjo. I was abandoned behind a trash dumpster at a veterinary clinic and have been living at the clinic in the kennel ever since. I am a little timid when approached but once I understand you will not harm me I am ready to give kisses and hugs. Yes, I love to give hugs when sitting in your lap! I love walks and playtime with my toys. I may be a little protective of my toys at times so small children may not be the best fit for me. My favorite activity to be honest is to just be by your side or sitting in your lap. I do like other animals once I get to know them. I would love to meet you and hope that you may be my chance at a forever home. Banjo is up to date on all of his vaccines, he is neutered and ~4-5 years old.

Sally is a 5 year old girl that is a bundle of sunshine! She's so happy to be out of the shelter, and ready to shower her new owner with tons of love and kisses. Sally has wonderful house manners, and has gotten along with all of the other dogs she's met, and she has absolutely no interest in pets of the feline persuasion. She's met two since being sprung from puppy prison, and has ignored them both completely (much to the chagrin of Watson the kitten who's used to taunting the household dogs). Miss Sally really, really needs a foster home since she thrives on human attention and love. If you would like to share your home with this happy girl, you can fill out our foster form at our web page, russellrescuetn.com or contact us at russellrescuetn@gmail.com. June 22, 2017, 4:26 pm

We would love to be able to help her find someone that might volunteer some time to help Ebony and her owner learn how to use the underground fence. The fence would provide Ebony with the freedom to do her business and get some exercise yet also provide her owner with the piece of mind that her pup will be safe in the yard. Without help this sweet lady is facing having to surrender her dog. She is a wonderful dog owner that loves her dog very much and has reached out for some help.

Hello! I am a Jack Russell Terrier-Beagle mixed breed. I was born in 2006 and, although that was a long time ago, I do remember growing up on a farm as a young pup. For some reason, my family then relocated to the Williamson County Animal Shelter. First things first…I LOVE playing with my tennis ball! If I had the chance, I would watch and play with the squirrels, bunny rabbits, and chipmunks all day long…but have I mentioned that I really love my tennis ball?! Next to the ball, a good belly rub completely makes my day! I have lived in both Tennessee and Florida—I enjoy going for car rides, and I have even been on many boat rides with my family in Georgia. I’ve stayed at the beach twice—the waves are so fun! I love giving kisses, nudging in close with friendly people, laying in the sunshine (I really love this!), and sleeping in the bed—but I’m also very comfortable sleeping in my own doggie bed in my kennel. Bath time is okay, but it’s always best at the end when I get pampered with the towels…and of course, the yummy treats for being good afterward! I love to eat my food (and don’t like anyone else to eat it!), and I stay around 20 lbs. I can be pretty nervous and anxious, and the older I get this seems to increase. But, I always say that the best medicine for this is lots of freedom, lots of love, and a very stress-free and relaxed atmosphere. I love really well and enjoy pleasing others…but I also love the attention, and give as much love in return as given to me! Love, Kali June 22, 2017, 4:26 pm

Lupin was found on the street and a family graciously stepped up to care for him over the summer. Unfortunately they are not in a position to offer Lupin a forever home and have reached.out to us for help. Notes from the family that found Lupin: 'He came to us very bony with no hair on his back paws. The husband of my oldest daughter's biology teacher saw him and two litter mates wandering the streets for a couple of days. He took them home and the girls went quickly to homes. No one wanted Lupin because he looked so puny. They could not keep him, so we agreed to take him in to try to get him healthy. He gobbled the food down so fast at first, he would throw up. He has now learned that he will be fed daily and will stop eating when he is full. He has learned to sit, lay down, roll over, and shake hands. My girls have been working on teaching him to pray, but he looks more like he is doing a yoga pose than praying. He prefers not to be in a crate, but he handles it well when we leave or at night. His crate is next to the schnauzers' crate which helps. He is in the puppy chewing stage. He has only destroyed one shoe and a pillow. He cannot have any pillow, blanket, or towel in the crate because he tries to ingest them. He gets along well with our cat as well. June 22, 2017, 4:26 pm

I love people. I like to play ball or any thing that flys or rolls. I like laying on my pillow looking out the window when it cold or storming. I love to chase things. I'm not a lover of other dogs or wild cats. I'm house broke. I like getting dirty and taking baths or showers. I'm 7 years old and can still run like I'm two. I'm just a spoiled baby.

Reno is an 11 year old female. She was abandoned at her vet by her owner about a month ago. The vet staff has taken her in and cared for her but no dog needs to live full time in a vet clinic. We have agreed to help her find a new and improved family! Reno is current on vaccines and just had her spay done so she has just a little recovery time and then she will be good to go! Reno is described as a typical Jack, she loves to chase things that run. As you can see she is petite in size and is said to be a sweet dog. She does have a bit of a quirk: She likes to crate herself and walk in. If you try to place her in the crate apparently she can be crate aggressive. Supposedly if you say 'kennel' she will go in on her own. June 22, 2017, 4:26 pm

Looking for a fun, playful and very loving new friend? Then Graham would be perfect! He’s such a sweet, good hearted and smart boy. He’s still a bit of a puppy at only 2 years old, fully vetted and in excellent health. He loves to play and would be great for an active person, couple or family. He loves everyone – adults, children and all kinds of dogs. At approximately 55 pounds, he might be a little big for playing with cats and probably would be best with children who are bigger than he is (probably at least 8 years old). Graham’s breed is a little hard to identify – some say English Bulldog mix, others say Boston Terrier/Lab mix. He’s currently in a foster home with a fenced in yard, doggy door, and several doggy friends. He’s living in Nashville, TN and you can find out more about this precious darling by calling Melissa at 615 298 5429. He is such an amazing boy who will be a blessing to whoever adopts him!

Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix and weighs about nine pounds. He is 1 1/2 years old and was found abandoned and never claimed. He is great on a leash and loves to run and play in the shelter yard. He has such fun with the toys and especially enjoys the tennis balls. He likes to be petted and cuddled and carried around and is such a friendly, good-natured little dog. He looks so adorable curled up on his bed in his kennel. He would do best in a home without young children- he is protective of his food and treats. He would do great in a quiet home where he can be king of the castle. June 22, 2017, 4:26 pm

contact russellrescuetn@gmail.com for more information. He looks tough, but will smother you with kisses! Rock is a young male Chihuahua mix that came to us from Texas. This sweet, affectionate boy is perfect in almost every way. He is crate-trained, walks great on a leash, and gets along well with other dogs. He needs a wonderful forever home with a family who doesn’t mind him staying at their feet or giving lots of doggie kisses. Rock loves to curl up under a soft blanket when he naps. We’re sure he must bark but we’ve not heard him. Rock has been with RR for a while now and just gets overlooked because he’s so quiet and unassuming. It takes a little extra time for Rock to become comfortable around men. He is a great companion and ready for his new best friend. June 22, 2017, 4:26 pm

Not a mean bone in his body (we've never heard him growl.) A cuddler Ideal family placement Someone who is home regularly (Stitch is very pack oriented and prefers to be with people and other animals) Electric fence or fenced in back yard best. If he's off lead and catches a scent, he won't come back until he's done sniffing. Knows word 'potty' and will potty on command but new owner must be proactive in letting Stitch out to pee because if indoors, he does not let you know he needs to go out. June 22, 2017, 4:26 pm

According to her previous owner she is good with kids and potty trained. Will you save her? It is so difficult and unfair for a Sr., who has known a home all her life, to be turned into a shelter. Even though Sassy is about 11 yrs. old, she still has good years ahead of her and deserves to spend them in a loving home. June 22, 2017, 4:26 pm

My name is Smiley and I’m a darling male Jack Russell mix.. I came from a criminal abuse case so I’m a little timid and shy. However, I'm a very gentle, happy little boy with a fabulous smile. I’ll feel safer in a calm, quiet home. I'm around five years old, weigh around 25 pounds and will be a loving companion to someone. I have an adorable under bite which is why I guess the shelter where I came from named me Smiley. I also have a “second sense” to know when my foster mom wakes up in the morning and I run to greet her with a warm smile and pats on her arm. I can prance like a little horse and wave my paws in the air while continuing to beamingly smile.
