Tino – Spring 2022

By | News, Photo Gallery | No Comments

Tino is a true gentleman. Don’t be fooled by his bat-like ears, he’s 100% dog! He’s around 32 lbs, 2 years old, and a black & tan beagle-mix. Tino is friendly, playful, and has a very sweet temperament. Tino would tell you that even though he might slightly resemble the caped crusader, he thinks Captain America’s shield is pretty cool!

Tino came to HALT through our friends at Oak Ridge Animal Shelter where sadly, he was owner-surrendered due to his family moving and they could not bring him along. But, Tino’s luck has turned around, and HALT is so excited to be a part of his journey!

We’re now taking adoption applications for this precious, friendly pup, who is 100% deserving of a loving family. HALT classes start April 4, and conclude April 28, and then he will be ready to go to his furever home! Apply to adopt Tino on our website and stay tuned to our Facebook page for more details as we learn more about this fun girl.

All breeds and ages are the best guess from the shelter, our Dog Selection Committee, and Veterinarian.

Milly – Spring 2022

By | News, Photo Gallery | No Comments

Milly was found as a stray by our partners at Young-Williams Animal Center. She weighs 22lbs, is around 1 yr old, and a hound mix. You can see from her photos that Milly’s fur is a beautiful mix of all the best cocoa flavors – mocha, chocolate, and caramel, and she has a pair soulful caramel eyes to match. I think, if she were a hot chocolate flavor at a coffee shop, she’d be a top seller!

Milly is young, and her high energy comes along with some serious laughs (see photographic evidence of her goofiness). Give her a tennis ball or squeaky toy, and she’s content.

We’re now taking adoption applications for this precious, friendly girl. HALT classes start April 4, and conclude April 28, and then she will be ready to go to her furever home!

Marigold – Spring 2022

By | News, Photo Gallery | No Comments

  They called her “Gorgeous Girl” at Young-Williams, (100% accurate), but with her flowery personality, we’ve decided to rename her Marigold! Today, we want everyone to meet Marigold, the third dog participating in HALT’s classes this spring!

Marigold was found as a stray and weighs in at 55lbs. She’s among the biggest dogs to participate in our program – but don’t hold it against her, there’s just more of her to love! Marigold is around 2-3 years old and a collie mix. The animal experts on our dog selection committee believe the “mix” to be Labrador or Pyrenees. What do y’all think?

Marigold comes equipped with a caramel brown and white medium-length fur coat. She’s bonkers for a squeaky toy and LOVES a good tennis ball (see photos)! While she lights up at the sound of a toy, Marigold is rather calm and sweet (dare I say, a perfect HALT dog?). Aside from being a ray of sunshine, she’s simply a happy dog radiating calm energy.

We’re now taking adoption applications for Marigold. HALT classes start April 4, and conclude April 28, and then she will be ready to go to her furever home! Apply to adopt Marigold on our website and stay tuned to our Facebook page for more details as we learn more about this fun girl.

Livvie – Spring 2022

By | News, Photo Gallery | No Comments

Livvie was found as a stray by Young-Williams. She’s around 1 year old, 32lbs, and a hound mix with brindled speckles (white, black & brown). Livvie is a big fan of people, and loves all the human interaction she can get.

She has a very playful and social personality, which makes us think she’s going to be a love bug looking for someone’s lap to sit in when she finds her forever family! She’s young, so she has lots of energy, but she did calm down for pets and treats quite quickly.

We’re now taking adoption applications for this sweet girl,  Livvie. HALT classes start April 4, and conclude April 28, and then she will be ready to go to her furever home! Apply to adopt Livvie on our website and stay tuned to our Facebook page for more details as we learn more about this fun girl.

Franklin – Spring 2022

By | News, Photo Gallery | No Comments

Franklin was found as stray by Young-Williams Animal Shelter. He is approx. 1 year old and a Heeler/Terrier mix. He has gorgeous short brown fur with blonde highlights (I know lots of ladies who would pay big bucks for his hair do). He’s a medium-large sized pup, weighing in at a cuddly 47lbs. Franklin has a sweet speckled face and white paws, chest and belly (belly rub anyone?).

Franklin is on the super sweet spectrum and loves his food and treats, making him a perfect candidate for HALT’s training classes. We learned about his love of head-boppin’ 90s hip-hop music in his getaway car ride. And, warning … Franklin’s expressive eyes are going to melt a few ladies’ hearts.

We’re now taking adoption applications for handsome Franklin. HALT classes start April 4, and conclude April 28, and then he will be ready to go to his furever home! Apply to adopt Franklin on our website and stay tuned to our Facebook page for more details as we learn more about this lovely boy.
