About River

Attention young couples who wake up everyday ready for fun, excitement, and laughter! My name is River, and my best qualities are that I’m affectionate and will always keep you smiling. I do like to play, but I really love to cuddle up when you're watching tv or sleeping. It’s kinda cool because I wake up when you wake up....so if you are into sleeping in, I’m the girl for you! Greeting new people at the door is fun, and I like to say hello when I see them on the street. My perfect job would be the greeter who says hello to everyone as they walk into a store AKA a Walmart greeter dog. I’m leash and crate trained, I know how to sit and I’m a very good listener. Send in your adoption application for me if you’re ready for some cuddly sleepovers.

My name is Elliott, and my perfect home would have kids, dogs and a big yard to run and play in. I’m friendly, but sometimes I’m a scaredy cat and hide in my crate if there are new people around – especially big men – or if I hear loud or unfamiliar noises. I get along great with kids and like to sniff them while they pet me. I’m a good listener who is leash and crate trained. I’m also learning basic commands like sit, stay, come and down. I love getting petted, and I’m yours forever if you rub my belly. I can’t get enough of my chew toys, and I’m learning how to play fetch. It’s great fun to roll in monkey grass and run around the yard, especially if there’s someone to play chase. Please send in your adoption application for me, and I’ll give you some tips on rolling in the monkey grass. * ELLIOT REQUIRES AT LEAST ONE CANINE FRIEND IN HIS FOREVER HOME Memphis/Nashville Adoptions At ALIVE Rescue Memphis, we take placing animals in their forever homes very seriously.

** Hugh & Lily are a bonded pair. They must be adopted together-however this adoption will double the love in your home.** Hi, I'm Hugh! My mom went to assisted living and me and my best friend Lilly had no place to go. Thankfully ALIVE Memphis swooped in and gave me and my girlfriend a sweet place to crash while waiting for our forever home. I'm a funny but shy guy. It's safe to say Lilly wears the pants in this relationship. She likes to explore and meet new people and smell new things-I'm comfier hanging in the back and watching her. Although it takes me a little bit of time to feel comfy, a handful of treats, and comfort, and I will be hanging on the couch next to you in no time. I LOVE to snuggle and when I have made a friend with a human my favorite thing to do is to give hugs. I have met other dogs and if they are into playing I get excited and follow suit, but I'm appropriate if they are not into a Hugh playdate. I may have a few moments of play in the house with a toy, but I'm really just content taking long naps on the couch. My foster home consists of a wonderful lady who takes care of me and Lilly, her two personal dogs, and her two children. I have meshed well with everyone here and I'm pretty low maintenance in my opinion. Me and my girl Lilly would do best in a home that is on the quiet and low-energy side. A fenced yard versus having to walk on busy city streets would also be our ideal situation. We are ready to retire and don't need the hustle and bustle of city life, like those other young whippersnappers ALIVE Memphis has available for adoption. If you are looking for a sweet duo that just wants a million naps, and to binge watch Golden girls with- get your app in now. show less

** Hugh & Lily are a bonded pair. They must be adopted together-however this adoption will double the love in your home.** Hi, I'm Lilly! My mom went to assisted living and me and my best friend Hugh had no place to go. Thankfully ALIVE Memphis swooped in and gave me and my boyfriend a sweet place to crash while waiting for our forever home. I'm totally the more laid-back one in this relationship, but also the braver of our adorable duo. It's also safe to say I'm the one who wears the pants in this relationship. I have no problems exploring new places and meeting new people. However, I honestly prefer to find the comfiest spot in the house and observe in between taking comfy naps. I have three things in my life that I need to stay happy--Hugh, my blanket, and food. At this age, it's important to narrow down what you love and focus on that. My foster home consists of a wonderful lady who takes care of me and Hugh, her two personal dogs, and her two children. I have meshed well with everyone here and I'm pretty low maintenance in my opinion. Me and my BFF Hugh would do best in a home that is on the quiet and low-energy side.

Hi, I’m Virginia! My current roommates are 3 cats, one being a 4-month-old kitten. I especially love that baby kitty, but you should see how I come alive when I’m around other dogs. In fact, I think being around another dog or multiple canine friends would be my idea forever home. I'm nervous around new people at first, but once I trust you, I will become your personal shadow and want to be wherever you are. My favorite things to play with are my Kong toy and balls. I’m crate and leash trained, and I’m starting to get the hang of how to play fetch. Please send in your adoption application for me, and we’ll master the art of playing fetch.
