ADOPT

Adopt a Double Dog Today!

Please fill out a Double Dog Rescue application and email it to the DDR volunteer in that dog’s petfinder bio. Be sure to contact your veterinarian and give us permission to do a vet reference check to expedite the process. Most vets require your approval. If you are interested in a general pre approval to adopt from our organization, send your application to preappddr@gmail.com. Home visits are also part of the initial process. Keep in mind that several people may have put an application in for the same dog. When this happens, an adopter is picked based on that particular dog’s temperament, personality, and how that matches with your family’s lifestyle

Our adoption fee is $485. Due to rising costs, our fee has been slightly raised in order to cover the cost of both vetting and transporting our dogs. We use professional transports to ensure the safety of all of our dogs. You will receive the vet records at the transportation pick-up. Remember, your adoption fee is tax-deductible at the end of the year.  Click here to download our application.

Adopting to Families With Children

We have a very specific contract that is tailored for families with children. If you have children under the age of ten who live with you and/or visit, you will be asked to submit this contract before you can be approved to adopt. As the adult(s) in the home it is your full responsibility to educate your child(ren) on the proper way to interact with your dog, and vice versa. We want your guarantee that you will introduce and educate your children (and their friends as well) as to how to properly and safely interact with your dog, creating respect and boundaries for both. Children and dogs should never be left together unattended. It only takes a moment for a dog to get accidentally hurt or startled and for that dog to react. We encourage you to watch this video with your entire family before you consider adopting.

 . Berke .
 . Berke .  . Berke .
  • Coonhound, Hound
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Breed: Coonhound/Hound Mix Age: 6-7 years old Weight: 75 lbs Good with dogs: Yes Good with cats: Yes Good with kids: Yes Energy Level: Low Available for Adoption: 04-28-18 (Currently accepting applications) Your application must be approved prior to meeting any dog. Berke is a very laid-back, low-key kind of boy. Some of his favorite things are napping and eating - he really is quite the simple guy! He enjoys his space and is not one to overly seek attention, but he does like to get it. He loves ear, head and belly rubs, but will not nudge you to get them. He will patiently wait until you feel like giving him some love. He loves to get outside and play with squeaky toys or tennis balls, go for walks, and he especially is looking forward to the upcoming warm weather so he can bask and tan in the sun! He would make a great family dog, or a pet for a single owner, but he is not recommended for someone who wants a running buddy for several miles a day. Overall, Berke is a well-behaved boy with super cute puppy eyes, and he can hardly wait to complete his new family! If you would like more information on Berke, please contact Sarah at SarahDoubleDog@gmail.com.

I almost felt you touching me just now I wish I knew which way to turn and go I feel so good and then, then I feel so bad I wonder what I ought to do If I could only fly, if I could only fly I'd bid this place goodbye to come and be with you. Coming home soon and I wanna stay Maybe we can, somehow, get away- from 'If I Could Only Fly' by Blaze Foley We have the sweetest boy looking to find his forever place in your heart and home. Blaise is a 2 year old Black Mouth Cur mix weighing just under 50 lbs. He was constantly overlooked in a high kill southern shelter but he did have a very important job there. Because of his happy and accepting personality, Blaze was kind of like an ambassador for meeting new dogs and putting them at ease. Blaise made it possible to help evaluate the socialization needs of many other shelter dogs. Sadly he was there too long in the shelter world and his time was coming to an end. The rescue group who pulled him just couldn't let a great boy like this go so he left the shelter in a 'Blaze' of glory. Yep it was definitely time to bid that place goodbye! Our VERY happy boy was placed in a wonderful foster home where he has continued to impress all he meets. Blaise is already house and crate trained. Obviously he is great with other dogs and foster mom says his interactions with cats has been positive. He likes people of all ages so he will be fine in a home with or without little ones. He does need regular exercise be it play, walks, or runs so a somewhat active family for this medium energy boy would be best. Blaise is affectionate without being clingy. He likes to be near his people but not in their face. He's not really a hugger or snuggler but he'd follow you to the ends of the earth and stay by your side all the way back home. He is still working on leash control and continues to improve daily. Of course everything he has learned in the short times he has been in his foster home is new to him but he has picked up on things quickly. Leash training has been a little more challenging as he does get distracted by sights, sounds, and smells so he'll need a little more time and training to conquer this portion of a brave new world. Speaking of a brave new world...take this pup with because he loves to go for rides and everything is an adventure! Blaise is already neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, current on preventatives, and micro chipped. He is eagerly waiting for the day when 'coming home soon' will be a certainty and 'I wanna stay' a dream which becomes the reality of a forever loving home. Of course Blaise will never fly but his heart will no doubt soar higher than the heavens for his very own family Contact Sharon : ddogresq@aol.com

Meet Blaze! It is no wonder this boy is a Shepherd mix, because boy is he smart! Blaze loves anyone and anything he comes in contact with: people, dogs, cats, kids - you name it! One of the best parts about having Blaze as your fur-ever friend is always knowing that when you come home at the end of the day, he will be there to greet you with a happy smile. He has medium energy, which makes him perfect for cuddling at night and watching your favorite show, but he will never turn down the opportunity to play because that is his favorite! Specifically, he enjoys toys and playing tug-o-war, and he cannot wait to spend his playtime with you when you bring him home! Blaze loves treats, and he is excited to show how gentle he is when taking them. But more than anything, Blaze is eager to be settled in his home with his new family. Will it be you?

Meet Cloudy! He gets his name from his beautiful coat, which is almost pure white like a cloud. Cloudy is a very good boy and loves to exercise to relieve some of his puppy energy! He gets along well with dogs (cats, too!) and really enjoys playing with his canine friends. He enjoys high-energy play and will need a doggy friend who will be able to keep up with him and match his rough play style. This sweet boy adores the people in his life who he knows and trusts. He is, however, a little fearful of strangers, but once he warms up to them, he will soak up every bit of the attention lavished on him, and shower everyone with oodles of affection in return. Cloudy is an excellent candidate for a training course. He responds well to routine and structure and will require a family who can provide this for him. His perfect match would include a home with a yard to run around and play fetch in! Cloudy is looking for a family to make his days sunny again!

She likes squeaky toys and would love to play with her humans for as long as they’d like, but she also likes to share the wealth and play with other dogs as well!

He gets along with both children and other dogs, so families with either are welcome to adopt him! In fact, the bigger the family, the better, because this boy loves being around people, but he is cat curious. Gillis is certainly not shy but still has a nice, calm medium energy - the best of both worlds! He is energetic enough to get outside and walk or play fetch for awhile, but still appreciates a nice, relaxing afternoon. He loves affection and attention, especially head rubs and cuddles, so anyone who is looking for a loving best friend would enjoy having him as part of their family!

Hazel found herself without a home after her owner passed away, it has been a difficult transition for her over the past few month as she was also found to be positive for heartworms. She has been treated, gone through her crate rest period, tested negative and is now looking for a stable forever home! Hazel is four and a half years old, she is very loving and enjoys so much being at the center of whatever is going on with her people. She is a medium energy girl who enjoys playing but also likes to relax. She gets along well with other dogs that are calm and mannerly, overly hyper or dominant dogs make her very nervous. Hazel absolutely ADORES children, so a home with little folks would be great for her. Hazel spent a lot of time alone in her former life, and that was hard on this very social girl, so a family that will include her in all their daily activities is what we are looking for in a home for her. Beyond being a sweet girl, who could resist Hazel's fantastically expressive ears?!? We think she is just the cutest! 🙂 If you are interested in sweet Hazel, please email Summer at: summer.doubledogrescue@gmail.com

Liz also does well with cats and children, making her the perfect match for families!

Breed: Plott Hound mix Age: 2 yrs. Weight: 60 lbs. Good with dogs: yes Good with cats: yes Good with kids: yes Energy Level: low Available for Adoption: Your application must be approved prior to meeting any dog. THANK YOU, For waiting such a long time, And strange that it just had to be It's true, You look, you keep on trying, Had to keep on trying, Search for half a life time, suddenly it's there THANK YOU, for being here where I am, It's better by far Not living alone, The future to share THANK YOU, for loving me like you do, for being my friend, And taking my hand, and sharing my cares - from 'Thank You' by Gentle Giant PePe isn't really a 'giant' but he is definitely gentle and kind hearted. This sweet boy is a very handsome 2 year old brindle Plott Hound mix weighing 60 lbs. whose favorite pastime seems to be napping in the sun. We aren't really sure how such a precious boy ended up in an overcrowded shelter but we knew we couldn't leave this gentle soul there to an unknown outcome or future. He was pulled from his precarious circumstances and placed in a loving foster home where he has learned that he is loved and wanted. A very BIG thank you from this special pup. PePe has done an awesome job with his house and crate training. She has been working on some basic commands with PePe. He is very good on leash and LOVES to go for walks. He is a little on the shy side at first meeting but after the initial howdy do he comes right out of that shy little shell. He is great with other dogs and cats....he ADORES kids. He is calm and laid back around them and will actually lay down and crawl on his belly with really little kids (that gets a 10 on our cuteness scale). Keep in mind the key word with this darling boy is 'gentle'. PePe is already neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, current on preventatives, and micro chipped. Pepe is such a sweet, calm, laid back, well behaved, and gentle giant. This boy has figured out what really matters in life and no doubt if PePe could put things in words there would indeed be a lot of thank yous, especially for saving his life. Now it's time for him to find his very own loving forever family and home and because PePe can't put things into words, we would like to say what he can't to his future family... THANK YOU for being there, being a friend, loving him, and NEVER letting him live alone again. If you are interested in adopting Pepe, please email kgorman2989@gmail.com PLEASE REMEMBER: The specific breed of any dog abandoned to shelter is the best guess by seasoned rescuers in accord with our veterinarians.

Polo says 'YOLO' (You Only Live Once!) and he is looking to make the most of his new life! This incredibly sweet boy found himself in a high-kill shelter as an owner surrender when his former 'family' was moving and 'couldn't afford him'. He had the added issue of having a perineal hernia which had gone unaddressed for some time and made doing his 'business' difficult and uncomfortable. He was suffering from flea allergies and was generally underweight. Plus, apparently his former 'owner' felt it would be a good idea to cut off this boys beautiful ears. 🙁 Polo's medical issues have been addressed; he had surgery to correct his hernia and has been fully vetted and is getting lots of extra 'groceries' to fill his tummy! Now, the important part--a FOREVER family that will love and cherish him! Polo is an all around excellent dog, he LOVES people so much in spite of his rough former life. He knows basic commands and takes treats so gently, even from the tiniest child. He is very calm and respectful of children, there are three in his foster home, and he loves snuggling and watching TV with them. Polo is fine with other dogs and ignores the two cats in his foster home as well. He handles well on a leash and is perfectly house trained and crate trained! Polo's favorite things are car rides, belly rubs, cookies, and spending time with anyone who will sit next to him and give him love! We are looking for a loving and committed home for Polo where he can continue to be an ambassador for his breed and live every moment of his new 'leash' on life to its fullest!

  • Treeing Walker Coonhound

Breed: Hound Mix Age: 6 yrs. Weight: 70ish Good with dogs: yes Good with cats: yes Good with kids: yes, he is a large dog, so children older than 5 yrs. Energy Level: low Available for Adoption: Your application must be approved prior to meeting any dog. River is a 6 year old hound mix. Weighing in at 90 pounds, he is currently a bit overweight, but is benefiting from a controlled diet and exercise. 60-70 is his goal weight. He absolutely LOVES his afternoon walks and enjoys a brief jog sprinkled in. He walks superbly on leash, but still likes to stop and smell the roses. So don't expect to rush anywhere with this big boy. Above anything else, however, he is more than happy to snooze the day away on the couch and even sticks the tip of his tongue out mid-snore. River is a happy tail wagging boy who wants to be around his family. He hasn't quite gotten the message that he isn't a lap-dog, but responds to your moving him. He will still breathe on you until you pet him. He loves to be pet by anyone at anytime and will nudge your hand for more if you stop. River does his "River Dance" when dinner is being prepared and licks his lips. It's quite adorable. River gets along with all dogs and he has met a few cats. After his very calm initial greeting, he does not pay attention to them unless they start running around in "crazy cat mode". He then wants to join in on the fun. Being a gentle giant, he would do well in any home with kids, but being a hound, which means he's a leaner, he may not be best in a home with children under the age of 5. From his foster mom: He enjoys his crate and if we are in the same room together, he will curl up with a chew toy and relax the afternoon away. But he will also walk off on his own and find the office couch to curl up on. We figure he just needs some quite time after being in the shelter for so long. He is housebroken and has fine house manners, so we do not kennel him while we are away at work. Very rarely does he pick up something that he is not supposed to have (ie the remote control that fell on the ground that we didn't see, a sock, a phone charger) but once corrected, he has not repeated the incidence again. Overall, he is a very calm and warm dog. He would do well in both houses and apartments and with people of all ages (although younger children should be monitored with him). He is quiet, only making noise when he isn't getting enough attention and that is still rare to hear. If you would like to make River part of your family, please email kgorman2989@gmail.com PLEASE REMEMBER: The specific breed of any dog abandoned to shelter is the best guess by seasoned rescuers in accord with our veterinarians.

Meet Rodney Strong! Rodney is a super sweet guy who found himself down on his luck in a kill shelter. He was highly thought of by all who met him, so we had to make sure he got to safety! Rodney Strong is a young adult and is pretty much an easy-going guy! He is medium energy and not at all hyper, but still active, so be sure to get some new tennis balls to toss in the backyard for him! This sweet boy crates well and has great manners. Rodney is still in the process of learning not to be afraid of a leash. We believe someone may have treated him harshly or perhaps been rough with him on a leash, but with a little tender care and positive reinforcement we think he is going to do just fine!
