Review for Saving The Animals Together, Jackson, TN, USA
I have a new puppy. He's about a year and a half, a coonhound/border collie mix with a sweet face and sweeter personality. I'd been looking for a second dog for over a year, since my beagle/basset mix is not much of a walker -- she's a smeller. I saw Wyatt, my new puppy, on a friend's FB page as a dog in need of a rescue and fell in love with his face. I called my friend, who had taken in a dog from STAT, and he raved about STAT, hooked me up with Kelli, and in a few hours I knew where Wyatt had been born, who his parents were, his last vet's appointment, his disposition (most important since I have cats) and so on. STAT was concerned about Wyatt, who had been surrendered by his owner, at a shelter in Pennsylvania, not his native Tennessee. Wyatt is at that age where the wrong experience can become part of his personality, and he was terrified of all the dogs he was sharing the shelter with. Kelli coordinated with the shelter, and the pick-up could not have gone smoother.
He's a big dog with a lot of energy and a fantastic walker. Our boys love him and even our little drama queen beagle/basset will admit sneaking kisses on his nose. Since the shelter in Pa. was a high-kill shelter, it's quite likely he would have been destroyed, despite being a perfect family dog.
