Powell

Powell is an adorable, black, male German Shepherd mix (possibly mixed with Border Collie). If you are are interested in a dog with the appearance of a German Shepherd but in a smaller package, this boy may be perfect. He is approximately 2-3 years old and weighs around 50 pounds.  He is a little shy when meeting new people but warms up quickly. 
He has a moderate energy level and is crate-trained and housebroken. He is good with kids and other dogs but has not been cat-tested.

ADOPTION: Training (for both the dog and the family) increases the probability of a successful adoption. We feel strongly that training is an essential part of responsible dog ownership and we now require training for every dog placed through the MTGSR program.

The cost of adoption is $500 which includes the $250 adoption fee and a training fee of $250 due at the time of adoption. 

For the adoption fee, the dog will be spayed/neutered, current on all vaccinations, current on heartworm/flea-tick preventatives and microchipped. 

The training fee will include a plan tailored to that specific dog and that dog's needs (obedience training, behavior modification, etc.).

PLEASE NOTE: Our philosophy is “Rescue locally, place locally” which means we primarily pull dogs from shelters in the Nashville area AND we prefer to place our dogs in homes within a one-hour drive of Nashville. If you are outside of the Nashville area, please consider adopting a homeless dog in your local community.
