RylieRylieRylie is a 6 year old, gold, choc and cream colored Cocker Spaniel. She is a gorgeous little girl, somewhat petite and small in stature for a Cocker. Rylie has a sweet, docile disposition. She is deaf but that only makes her extra inquisitive and interested in most everything she sees. She is very well behaved, she simply loves to explore, amuse herself and enjoy her other senses of sight and smell. She likes to eat, play and loves other dogs. She doesn't have a disagreeable bone in her precious little body. Since she cannot hear, you must be willing to touch her to get her attention, redirect her behavior and teach her hand signals/signs. It can be a challenge to someone who isn't used to a dog with disabilities so we prefer an experienced adopter who has lots of love, patience and time to spend with this beautiful angel. She is very special and not much more in life is as rewarding as loving, helping and sharing your life with such an innocent, dependant and lovely angel as this. If you have a quiet home(as in not a lot of traffic in and out), are retired or work from home, have lots of love and time for this special girl, please consider applying to adopt sweet Rylie. She is mostly, but not 100 percent housebroken, has the occasional accident, and does need to be let out very frequently...she is slightly incontinent. She has a lump behind her ear that the vet said was not problematic and he saw no reason to remove it, however he said if an adopter's vet wanted to remove it, that would be fine.She has been spayed, brought UTD on shots, is heart worm/fecal negative, and is started on preventatives. She is being fostered near Knoxville, TN and her adoption fee is 175.00. Applicants without children and with a fenced yard only, please. To apply to adopt, please fill out our Adoption Application. Submission instructions are at the bottom of the application. Please email the completed application to: PreciousPawsADR@aol.com Applicants without children only, please.

8/20/2016 Update on Baylee: Since Baylee is 8 yrs old and kind of "chill" he would like a home without children, someone that is home often, someone that LOVES him sleeping in the bed with them, someone that cooks for him and spoils him. We have spoiled him. He gets fed home cooked foods off of a fork, sleeps on a bunch of pillows on my bed, usually on one above my head, prefers using puppy pads to going potty outside and is quite the pampered prince. He is exceptionally sweet, follows "his person" everywhere and dances behind them on two legs. He really is special. We want a home for him that is like the described, as that is now what he is used to, he is very happy, deserves that and more!

ColbyColby Colby is an absolutely beautiful, 2 yr. old, Shih Tzu. He has a soft, lovely coat of cream and light chocolate hues, with a beautiful chocolate nose and gorgeous eyes. He is a sweet little boy who loves affection and his "person". He can be a bit "needy", as in, he always wants to be near you, in your lap and to constantly be your object of attention. We do not feel like that is a "bad" thing, in fact is quite endearing if you want to truly have a best friend who needs you as much or more than you need them. He has obviously had a neglectful, less than optimum short life up until this point. He appears to not have had any love, attention or direction. He was merely left to basically fend for himself with minimal thought or care for his happiness or well being. Colby would be fantastic as your only pet where he could be spoiled, pampered and in return be your adoring, biggest fan.

Once he finishes his medication, all he requires now are his medicated weekly baths for his skin. The vet said that it will be approximately 8 months(possibly less) before his hair has completely grown in long and lush. According to the vet, he appears to have no other lingering health issues that they are aware of. His continued recovery should proceed without concern. Coco in majorly adorable, as you can see, (even in the poor condition he was in when rescued) and will be stunning once his hair all grows back in. He has a most endearing, kind, sweet and gentle disposition. He gets along with everyone and other pets. He walks well on a leash, rides well in the care, is good for grooming/baths and is very well behaved. Coco craves love and is a very affectionate little boy. He has had an awful past and simply needs, wants and deserves love, attention and good care in his life. He will steal your heart from the instant you meet him. He is THAT precious.

She had successful surgery with no lingering problems, however she must have a soft food diet. We home cook for her as well as give her an excellent premium canned food with human grade ingredients that she loves. Her little tongue always hangs from her mouth where that part of her jaw is missing, Quickly looking at her it is almost undetectable that she lost part of her jaw.

BlueBlueBlue is a 16 month old(March 2016), 11 lb. Bichon Frise. She is a 16 month old, We were told before we rescued her that she was a Malti-Poo, but that is definitely not the case, she is a Bichon. She is adorable, sweet and especially endearing. Blue had a somewhat unhappy past, was neglected and not spent much time with, which makes her initially wary of some strangers. That said, she is very quick to warm up to and return your kindness and love with kisses, a strong desire to be in your lap, with a special request to have her head rubbed. Blue gets along well with other dogs. She did well with grooming however she was scared at the vet and did snap while being examined and given shots. That is merely due to not having been to the vet often and being scared and uneasy. We do not consider this problematic and will/should change once she has become accustomed to vet visits. She is very sweet, she simply has not had much attention and exposure. Blue is trained to use puppy pads and will potty outside but will need house training reinforcement in her new home. She is very young and like all young dogs she will need and benefit greatly from training and redirection. We think an adopter that is home often, with a quieter household and without children is best. Blue has been spayed, brought UTD on shots, is heart worm negative and has been professionally groomed. Her adoption fee is 450.00. Blue is being fostered in Maryville, TN.





JenziJenziJenzi is a 9 month old(1/12/2016), 8 lb. Yorkshire Terrier. He is an adorable little boy with an outgoing, energetic and sweet disposition. He has a great appetite and is enjoying the home cooked, nutritional meals in his foster home. These precious ones benefit greatly from eating freshly cooked human-grade food with a very high quality dog food(ie: Blue Buffalo grain free salmon and sweet potato) left out during the day for free choice eating(unless a weight problem develops). Jenzi is very young so he will understandably need additional training(house, leash, etc) as always comes when adopting a puppy/young dog. He is VERY smart, learns quickly and is eager to please, however his first order of business is to play, play, play......as it should be :) He loves toys, just hanging with you and having F-U-N. This is the kiddo for you if you want some happiness and excitement in your household. It is impossible not to have a permanent smile on your face with this sweetie-pie around you. Jenzi had to have his body coat shaved due to matting and neglectful care prior to rescue, but as you can see from the hair on his head, he will have a beautiful coat and is going to be an absolutely stunning little boy(well...he in fact already is!). Jenzi gets along well with other dogs and loves to play with them. He is very friendly with people however we do not adopt to homes with children or frequent child visitors. Jenzi has been brought UTD on shots, heart worm tested(neg), treated for internal parasites, neutered, had deciduous teeth removed, been professionally groomed and started on preventatives. Jenzi is being fostered in Maryville, TN. His adoption fee is 425.00.

DelaneyDelaney Delaney is an absolutely precious, 3 yr. old Shih Tzu. She weighs 12 lbs., but is overweight from being fed a poor diet prior to rescue and should actually weight approx 9- 10 lbs. She just needs a good diet with (hopefully) fresh, home cooked meals of lean poultry and fish , sweet potatoes, carrots, green beans etc. Her foster mom is cooking for her and she loves her chicken and vegetables. Grocery store "dog food" is not proper nutrition for Delaney or any dog in our opinion. The "ingredients" that are actually used in these foods and what the names of each ingredient really mean are extremely questionable and certainly not preferable to feed our "best friends"(in our opinion). We recommend a fish and sweet potato, grain free diet in a premium dry food such as Blue Buffalo, with supplemental home cooking several times a week. Delaney has a sweet, calm, docile and quiet nature. She is extremely well behaved, barks very little, walks well on a leash, rides great in the car and loves sleeping in bed with you. She gets along well with other dogs and has absolutely no bad habits or "issues" that we are aware of. She likes being near you and seeing where you are, however she is not "clingy" and does not always want to be in your lap. Many times she is content to sit near you and just look at you :) She has beautiful little face and her tongue sometimes sticks out which makes her look extra adorable :) . Delaney is healthy, has been spayed, is heart worm negative and started on preventatives. Delaney is being fostered in Maryville, TN. Applicants without children only, please. Her adoption fee is 385.00.

KioKio Kio is an approximately 5-7 yr old (vet estimation), beautiful, white,12 lb., Pekingese/ Tibetan Spaniel mix. He is an extremely sweet little boy with an absolutely golden disposition. There is not a disagreeable bone in his precious little body. He is gentle, affectionate and even gives kisses! He has never met a stranger and gets along very well with other dogs. He LOVES to play with toys, and if you are busy, he will just toss the current favorite toy around and chase it himself! Kio loves snuggling up in your lap and sleeping with you even more (but will just as easily snuggle down in his bed! He adapts very quickly to routines. Kio doesn’t mind his bath time, and LOVES being blow dried and brushed!! He is a pure joy! Kio was extremely neglected when we rescued him from a very high kill shelter. He was infested with fleas and his skin was red and raw with hair loss. He also had a very bad ear infection which has been treated. His skin was tested by our vet and it was determined his skin infection was due to an allergy from fleas. He also received a shot and medication for his itching. He is now flea free, there is no further itching/discomfort, his infection has cleared and his coat is growing back in nicely. As long as he remains flea free (which all dogs should be, of course), he will have no problems. These were simply issues created from the horrible, neglectful care he received prior to being rescued and could have been avoided had he been cared for properly. Kio's heart and eyes are fine and he has no lingering issues. Due to an ear infection that was left untreated prior to rescue, he has what is known as a “cauliflower ear” (left side), and has some hearing loss in that ear. However the infection is gone with no other problems. This little man does not let any of his past slow him down and dampen his spirits! He has learned what it is like to be loved, cared for, and being part of a family….he has chosen to leave his past behind him and live life to the fullest each and every day! Kio is extremely happy and well adjusted, an absolute angel. He has been neutered, received all shots and is on preventatives. Kio is being fostered in Huntsville, AL and his adoption fee is 225.00.

JoleeJoleeJolee is an absolutely gorgeous, 3 yr. old, 10 lb., liver/choc/white Shih Tzu. that was rescued from a kill shelter. It appears as if she had been neglected most of her life. She was basically left alone and had little love, training or social interaction. She is an EXTREMELY sweet, yet initially cautious and wary, merely due to her past mistreatment. Once she warms up to you, she does not want to ever leave your side. She wants to be in your lap and never leave. Her greatest desire and deepest sense of comfort is to be laying on you or by your side. She gives kisses and yearns for affection. Jolee has learned to walk very well on a leash. She definitely needs a home where someone is with her 99 percent of the time(retired/works from home etc) with no children or child visitors. She has a kind, gentle demeanor and she will always be a clingy dog(which I personally love), so we want an adopter who will always want her in their lap, in their bed and as their constant companion. Jolee gets along very well with other dogs. She is now VERY well house trained, loves going on walks and to the store. She is well behaved and absolutely ADORES her person. She is getting much better with grooming and only had to be muzzled to get her nails clipped. Jole must be adopted by someone who wants her to sleep in bed with her every night. She is used to this and loves it. Also, NO CRATING. Jolee hates to be crated and we do not allow our rescues to be adopted by people who crate.

Jolee is being fostered in Knoxville, TN. Her adoption fee is 400.00



JinjiJinji

Jinji is not yet available for adoption as we are working with him on his emotional issues due to past neglect/abuse.



Jinji is a 4 yr. old, 12 lb., chocolate and gold Shih Tzu. Jinji was rescued from a kill shelter where he was abandoned by a breeder. He is beautiful, with gorgeous coloration, small in stature and with a beautiful face. Jinji is very sweet, gentle and loves other dogs. He is just now learning to trust people and adjust to everything "new". He had no love or attention and lived in a cage until being dumped in a shelter, then rescued by us. He still stiffens and gets anxious when being picked up, however he is already doing much better and likes laying next to his "person". He also looks for you if you leave the room, he so wants that social interaction, he so lacked the first part of his life. He is doing well on house training and will use puppy pads. He also is doing better, learning to walk on a leash. It is a "whole new world" for this little one. If you apply to adopt Jinji, you must understand that he lacks socialization, is just learning to trust, may want to run and hide(in your home) initially and be scared. He is doing very well with his foster mom, however with someone "new" he may regress until he understands you are "ok" too and won't hurt him. It just takes time for him to adjust to new situations where he knows that he will not be hurt again. He does not have an aggressive bone in his little body, he is sweet and gentle, just scared and needs socialization. All of that said, he is playing with his foster brother and is finally starting to enjoy his life, something he never knew before. Nothing is more rewarding or heart healing than adopting a dog like this that has never known happiness or even what love or a toy was until now. Seeing them "emerge" into a happy, well adjusted and secure dog, as they learn to enjoy the "normal things" other dogs have always known, is so rewarding. The love and "thanks" they will give you for the rest of their life is something you cannot understand until you see it and experience it. These dogs never forget what you did for them and the love they now have. An experienced adopter with a fenced yard and another pet is preferred. We think that will make Jinji's transition easier and will help him thrive in his new life. Jinji has been neutered, brought UTD on shots, is heart worm and internal parasite free and started on preventatives. He is being fostered in Knoxville, TN. His adoption fee is 350.00.

Jinji update 11/8/2014:
Each day he shows a small amount of improvement. His safe spot is on the couch, he loves it there. He has even started to play with a toy, without a "squeaker", which scares him. He now will take treats from hands without fear...before he was too scared to accept a "treat" from a hand. He is being worked with re: walking on the leash. He still needs time to get over his issues, but he is heading in the right direction.......baby steps. We are very optimistic... He is finally starting to "live", to feel joy and not misery.


KeenanKeenan Keenan is a approximately 1-3 yr. old, 12 lb. Shih Tzu. He is exceptionally cute with huge round eyes and a black mask. And no one rocks a "bed head" like this little boy :) He is the most adorable!!! We rescued Keenan from a kill shelter. He was in deplorable condition, matted, his eyes were covered with matted hair, dried discharge and dirt. He had to be shaved down completely due to the horrible matting but the hair on top of his head was left....it added a little something to his "look" and he so works it :) Due to the lack of care for his eyes he has dry eyes and corneal pigmentation or staining. It does not affect his eyesight, he just needs eye drops to moisten his eyes and help them heal. As you can see his eyes already look much better and are so pretty :) Keenan is a confident little boy with an adorable personality. He is doing very well on house training, eats well, rides well in the car, walks well on a leash and was a very good boy for his baths and grooming. He is not used to toys yet, they scare him, but he is slowly being introduced to them. Keenan gets along well with other dogs and loves to sleep in bed with you and claim his spot in your lap. Keenan would not do well in a home with children, frequent child visitors or a home where there will eventually be children. They make him nervous and he is not comfortable with them. Obviously we want him in a home that will be optimal for him and we think a calm, quieter home is best. A fenced yard would be nice but is not required. This is a most precious little boy and he will make someone very happy. Keenan has been neutered, brought UTD on shots, de-wormed, is heart worm neg, had a full exam, is receiving eye drops for his eyes, is on preventatives and has been groomed. Keenan is being fostered in Clifton, NJ. His adoption fee is 395.00.

IsabellaIsabella Isabella is a 5 yr. old, 11.6 lb. beautiful silky- white Maltese. This gorgeous little girl has a very sweet, loving and gentle personality with an endearing shy demeanor. Isabella has no bad habits.... she is an absolute delight and joy. Isabella loves going for rides in the car, is good for grooming and doesn't take long to go to the bathroom once taken outside. Isabella doesn't .jump up on beds, sofas or go up and down stairs so she needs an owner willing to carry/lift her when needed. She loves being close to her "person", having her back scratched and just general affection. She is however, a bit wary of strangers and will run to hide if they come into the house. We prefer a quiet home for Isabella without a lot of different people "coming and going", no children and no more than one other small dog. This beautiful, healthy little girl will give years of dedicated love and affection to her new owners. She has been spayed, is heart-worm and fecal negative, up to date on shots, is on preventatives and has been groomed. Isabella is being fostered in Lookout Mtn., GA. Her adoption fee is 325.00

Update 5/2/2015: Isabella went to the vet for a general wellness check.

MikaMika Mika is a 2 yr, old, 13 lb. Shih Tzu rescued from a kill shelter. Mika is a beautiful Shih Tzu, white with various markings with a small, flat, precious face. He has an excellent disposition, kind of laid back and easy going. He actually has the perfectly balanced combination of "active" and "chill". Mika "talks". He has friendly "growly-speak" that he uses occassionally to communicate. It is quite endearing, as is his personality. He is sweet, but not clingy. Loving, yet independant. Yearning for attention and affection, yet content to entertain himself. He walks very well on a leash, rides great in the car and behaved perfectly while being groomed. He has no aggression towards people nor other animals and once initial "marking" in his foster home(common in many males not neutered or recently neutered), he has had no accidents and appears pretty well house trained. He was just neutered so the initial "marking" should wane as well. It was very limited and stopped quickly and most likely only happened due to another male dog in the foster home. Mika has been neutered, received all routine vaccinations, tested neg for heart worms, was treated for internal parasites, is microchipped, professionally groomed and is started on preventatives. Mika is being fostered in Red Bank, NJ. His adoption fee is 425.00.
