Adorable pug/terrier cross needs a foster or forever home

29 Dec

Won't somebody take me in?


Well, damn. We hear that this dog was given away at a local WalMart. We don’t know to whom or whether shots and neutering are in the picture.

We can only hope he got a good home.



Here’s what we know:

This dog is in the Chattanooga area.

Puggy was born August 10, 2011.  His parents are a purebred Boston Terrier and a purebred Pug.  The gentleman who has him loves him, but is living out of his truck and said he knows that is not fair to the dog.  He bought him from someone in Alabama for $150 and would like a $100 rehoming fee.  He said he has papers for Puggy showing that both parents are registered.  He said Puggy is not neutered.

The dog is very affectionate and very handsome – the photos do not show how handsome the dog really is.

Hope Needs Help

27 Dec

Won't someone want me?


Just wanted to pass along to see if you had anyone that could help. The guy with the dog  (a pittie mix) is in Atlanta and is a friend of a coworker.  He’s offering to spay and vet Hope and then give whoever takes her $500. She was a stray that he found and he can’t keep her at his apartment.


From her friend Kevin:

Update on the stray dog we now call “HOPE”— Village vets of Decatur has generously offered to hold her for a few days…. I now have a week before I have to turn her over to animal control. I went ahead and paid for her shots and for her to be fixed in hopes this encourages someone to take her in. I am also offering a $500.00 donation to anyone or any rescue that will take her in or foster her until we find her a loving home…


Atlanta Pet Rescue, PALS, or ANY other of the 20 rescues I have contacted will not accept her even with the $500 donation. The bottom line is they will not take pit bull mixes!!! The pit bull mix rescues are overflowing and will also not accept her. My only chance is that someone will be kind enough to take her or at least foster her until Humane Society, Atlanta Pet Rescues, PALS, or ANY of the other recues I have contacted will not accept her even with the $500 donation. The bottom line is they will not take pit bull mixes. The pit bull mix rescues are overflowing and will not accept her. My only chance is that someone will be kind enough to take her or at least foster her until we can find her a loving home.


She is crate trained. She can sit. She is eager to be trained. She loves to give kisses. She needs lots of love.


All she wants for Xmas is a home & some love

22 Dec

Nellie, and all the dogs and cats at the Pet Placement Center in Chattanooga, are hoping for a holiday miracle — someone to come along and give them a loving home.

Nellie, a Dalmatian mix

Nellie is a pretty Dalmatian mix born November 2010.  She is smooth coated and has the characteristic black spots on white that reveals a Dalmatian ancestry.  She is active and would like a home with someone who will provide opportunities for her to exercise.  She would make a good running or walking companion and will need constructive activities to satisfy her intellect.

Nellie was rescued from a high-kill Georgia shelter.  She weighs 35 pounds.

The Pet Placement Center is open Wednesday – Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm and Sundays 12 – 5 pm.

The adoption fee is $90 which includes a free veterinary exam within 2 weeks of adoption, up to date vaccinations, tests for heartworms, heartworm medication, FELV/FIV test, deworming, flea treatment, microchip, and spay or neuter.

You can see lots of the Center’s other pets here.

We are particularly partial to Micro the cat and Pressley, a male Chihuahua puppy.

But these are all great animals, at Chattanooga’s only no-kill animal shelter at 5975 Dayton Blvd.

Call them at (423) 877-0738 and mention the Underdog Railroad blog.

And Merry Christmas to animal lovers everywhere.

FOUND!!! Husky lost near Wal-Mart in Hixson, TN

21 Dec

We love a success story. This dog was found.


I am searching desperately for my lost Siberian husky. She was last seen in the Hixson area by Walmart on 153.  Her name is Sophie and she is very sweet normally but as she has been missing for  few days I am sure she’s scared!! She is not wearing her collar or tags, she slipped them when she made her great escape. I have attached a picture to this email. If you have any information please call me at 423-825-4808. My name is Ashleigh Hallett.

River the Rescued Dog needs a new home

20 Dec

Remember this guy?

This is the guy who was running looose near the RIVER vet clinic on Amnicola Highway in Chattanooga.

He was finally rescued, but the temporary foster for him is not the right home for him.  He can either climb or jump a 4′ fence and is housed in a garage most of the time.  He loves other dogs and seems fine with cats.  He’s just a young boy who needs exercise and room to run. He’s 7-8 mos old and fully vetted.  He weighs around 30 lbs.

If you can help, please contact Angela Rich <>


The dogs we saved this weekend …

17 Dec

Quite a load this week, going from high-kill facilities in the South to fosters and no-kill shelters in the Midwest.

When all that stood between life and death was a ride in the car and a little gas money, how could we say no?

This was a Mobile Mutts transport. Hats off to Coordinator Lynn Gregory and all the drivers.

Baxter was a little scared and needed a hug

It was a puppy-wonderful world

You ain't nuthin but a hound dog

Just an old-fashioned love song


Is this the potty stop? Where's the grass?

Sometimes ya just gotta squeeze 'em in
