Interested in adopting a pet — or just looking at some delightful doggies up for adoption? There are dozens of darling dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Nashville.

Lucy, collie mix
Lucy is a sweet female collie mix being kept at Big Fluffy Dog Rescue.
Lucy does do well with children, but she wants all your attention: She will need a home free of other dogs. She's mastered her house-training etiquette, she's already spayed, and she has had all her shots.
Notes from Lucy's caretakers:
Lucy loves to snuggle and hang out with her humans. If you are looking for a walking partner, and a dog who wants belly rubs, Lucy is the dog for you.

Bailey, Great Pyrenees
Bailey is a male Great Pyrenees being cared for at Big Fluffy Dog Rescue.
Bailey will get along great with other dogs, cats and children. Good news: He's already house-trained, vaccinated and neutered.
Notes from Bailey's caretakers:
Bailey is very shy at first and he takes some time to warm up, but he is a love. He requires a home with a fenced in yard, as he is not the dog that you are going to take to the dog park for exercise.
