Rescue Me ID: 16-05-14-00122Ana (female)

Anatolian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ana is a VERY sweet dog that was rescued out of a high kill rural NC shelter. Ana laid back, but needs a job to do or someone to exercise her several times a day. Ana is friendly with pretty much everyone she meets. She is house trained for the most part. Ana LOVES other dogs and we feel she would be so much happier with another dog to play with. Ana is cat selective which means she gets along with some cats, but will chase/try to get others. Unfortunately, she thinks our cat is a play thing and we have no other dogs for her to play with. Ana walks great on a leash and would make a great running partner. We will only let Ana go to what we ... (Read More)feel is the right home, which means we will do a vet check and require references. We are willing to drive up to three hours to meet someone with Ana if we think you are a good fit. Ana does excellent in the car! Please contact me if you think you are a good fit for Ana. (Less)

Anatolian Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Itsy is a pure, 100% Antolian Shepherd born July 2, 2015. He is neutered and a wonderful puppy to my wife and I, and our Boxer, but that is it. It will take him a few days to get to know someone, but then it should be alright as long as there is daily contact; if not, you'll have to start over. He needs a large farm with animals to be responsible for. If that is what you are looking for, Itsy is your man.

Anatolian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi!! My name is Maggie. I was thrown into a high kill shelter with my litter of pups. Luckily my sweet babies got rescued the day we entered but they left me there. I had an awful gash through the palm of my paw. He hurt so bad and bled constantly. Another rescue lady came to visit me to give me medicine and all it took was for me to look her in the eyes crying out for help. I heard her say, I am full at home but I will find a way, lets load her up. Thank goodness they did because my paw was getting more infected and after a vet check, I was tested heartworm positive. When she came to pick me up she looked me in the eyes and said no worry ... (Read More)Maggie (aw now I have a name) I will take care of you and we will get you all better. I knew then my life was about to change. Fast forward to today. I am finally heartworm NEGATIVE. I am around 2.5 yr old Anatolian Shepherd mix and finally weighing at around 45 pounds. It took me forever to gain weight due to the heartworms just wore my body down now I am finally keeping my weight on. I think I am looking great and my foster mom tells me that a lot too along with that I am one special girl in her eyes. She loves that I have one black eye and one brown eye. She says it makes me unique. Thing is too, when my paw was trying to get better. It was too late by time my foster mom got me and the infection deteriorated two of my bones in my paw, so now my foot doesn't exactly look like the other but it's all healed now. Now to tell you a little of what I like to do. I love it when my foster mom takes me on walks in the woods. I am a very loyal girl and will never leave her side. I can be protective over her with other dogs but I just get it honest. its in my breed. I just really want all her attention to myself. I don't mean no harm but this is my first time being loved, so I really like every bit of attention I can get. So if I could be in a home where its just me to be loved and have all the attention%BD'%BD|well I would really like that. I have been around both of her kids and I do love those two also. One is a small child and the other one is a bit older. I hope for news from my foster mom soon that she has found me my perfect home..til that day comes I will enjoy my walks with her and patiently wait for my a home to call my own. I am fully vetted, spayed, heartworm negative, microchipped and on monthly preventatives. I am being fostered in Tennessee but my foster moms rescue transports out of state as well and she will be with you every step of the way to make sure I will be a perfect fit for you and your family.

Rescue Me ID: 16-02-07-00083Mary Jane (female)

Anatolian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    MJ aka Trixie is a beautiful dog who never had the proper socialization. She needs a gentle, consistent person with the patience of Job. MJ enjoys interacting with people, but she must first know that she can trust. She enjoys playing with other dogs, and she loves treats. MJ probably would not make a good first dog. She should be with someone who understands the needs of an unsocialized dog. She is smart, and we believe she will make a good companion for someone with time, talent, and dedication for transforming MJ into everythng she can be. I am spayed, UTD on my vaccinations.If you would like to adopt me, please apply online ... (Read More) or email and we'll get one to you. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Anatolian Shepherd in Tennessee
    Anatolian Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee if they match your IifestyIe. The Anatolian Shepherd is a large breed with strong herding instincts. Anatolian Shepherds need strong leadership from their masters and are matched best with owners who have experience training dogs. An Anatolian Shepherd is a very loyal dog with strong protective instincts towards its loved ones. Anatolian Shepherds are wary of strangers and need to be introduced to new people. An Anatolian Shepherd is very friendly towards people he knows well. Anatolian Shepherds are caring towards children, but may not know their own strength and therefore need to be supervised around younger kids. A large fenced yard or farm environment is best for Anatolian Shepherds. Its ability to herd animals and protect the perimeter of a property makes the Anatolian Shepherd an excellent working dog.
