Rescue Me ID: 15-08-17-00691Gabe (male)

Poodle Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This is Gabe. He is 7 1/2 year old Yorkie-Poo. We MUST find him a new home VERY soon, probably without young children and the RIGHT home that understands his mixed breed, he needs PACK LEADERS or he will be dominant. He is a funny guy but has his moments where his attitude/behavior become an issue and we cannot have these moments with our 1 1/2 year old grandson living with us. He loves to play, has several toys that he favors, loves treats, and gets excited when he knows it's time to go out to 'pee' as there is a treat afterwards. He is pretty 'routine' oriented, and even knows when I go to put a certain container away that I usually ... (Read More)get out every night, that he needs to move from his 'nap' spot because where it goes is behind the door he's in front of! However, we have left him with a boarding kennel in the past and he did just fine with his routine changed. He currently lives with cats and there are two other dogs in the house that are not mine that he has had contact with several times with no real problems, but they don't wander around together, so I don't want to say he is good with other dogs for sure. If you think you are the RIGHT family - please call... we don't want to think of what will happen if we can't get him a RIGHT family very soon. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-19-00264  (male)

Poodle Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    ADOPTION PENDING We have been fostering Apollo (fondly called Papa in his foster home) since December. We pulled him from a local shelter and he is just as sweet as can be, but he also is a special needs dog. He is neutered and up to date on his shots. Apollo is quiet poodle, who is about 10 years old. He is house trained when taken out on a regular basis, but can at time have accidents if he is not taken out in time. For this reason, he would do best in a home where there is the greater chance for someone to be home more often than not. He is very sweet and loving with people, but is a little pickier about his 4 legged friends. He ... (Read More)can do well with other dogs, but because of his needs, he might do better as being an only dog. At night he would be happy to cuddle in your bed or in a doggy bed all his own. He walks great on a leash and would really enjoy a small, fenced in yard area. One of the medical conditions that Apollo has is Cushings. Cushing's is a disease caused by excess cortisol secretion. This is a lifelong condition and it is important that his new family understand this and are willing to take on and be responsible for this type of care. We understand that older dogs, especially those with special needs, are harder to adopt, but we are hoping that someone will see his picture, read his bio and say, I would love to give Apollo a wonderful home for him to live out the rest of his years, because he will be a wonderful companion and provide such unconditional love. Apollo is located in Tennessee. His adoption fee is sponsored (no fee) for the right family. If you are interested in adopting Apollo, please fill out our application at our website: (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-26-00236  (female)

Poodle Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Maggie Mae is a sweet girl who loves to be near and to be petted, and if allowed, sit in your lap. She also has a spunky, fun personality, and enjoys hanging out and chilling as much as she enjoys playing. She does has a fairly strong prey drive, so she will chase birds and other small animals. Cats are not recommended. She will react strongly to dogs she does not know who might surprise her or run up on her, or who she sees in the distance. For that reason, she is not a candidate for dog parks, or for walking in areas where dogs are running loose, or otherwise being walked. She will tend to boss other dogs she lives with at times which ... (Read More)includes trying to fight with them, so ideally, unless one is an experienced dog handler, a home without other dogs would be best, or one who has just one other dog who is laid back and of even temperament. Any other dog in the household will have to be evaluated by a representative of Red Fern. Maggie is about 25 pounds, and about 2 years old, or so (as of 5/29/15). She is currently in foster care. Maggie is crate trained and house trained. Maggie knows sit, down, 'enough' and wait. She is improving with car rides, but seems to get a bit car sick or anxious which leads to some drooling and throwing up, She is not a candidate for someone who wants a dog to go camping, boat riding, on trips, etc. She may be one day in the future, once she learns to trust a car, but anyone adopting Maggie at this time should not have that lifestyle, currently. She is willingly jumping up into a vehicle now, but she still has some anxiety or motion sickness issues. Maggie would do best in a home where she is not left alone for long periods of time, and ideally where one is home most of the day. She is a people dog, and is not fond of being isolated by herself without human companionship. A backyard is a must with a secure 5-6 ft. fence, no exceptions, so her need of being able to run and play safely can be met. Maggie can be a bit barky when left alone, so a condo. or apartment would not be an appropriate environment for Maggie. A lot of people have wanted to adopt Maggie, however, the criteria that has been laid out must be met, to meet her needs. She is a cute furry one, but the potential adopter should be focused on her needs, rather than her cuteness. There will be no exceptions. Maggie Mae's adoption fee is 200.00 which includes all vetting, spaying, heart worm preventative, flea/tick management, worming, microchip, teeth cleaning, and vaccinations. You can email Maggie's foster mom at for more information Please visit to submit an adoption application, if you think you would qualify, based on the criteria set forth in the description. Thank you for considering a rescued dog! (Less)
