Animal adoption agencies will tell you certain types of dogs have a slimmer chance of being adopted. Maybe because it is a big black dog, or a not - so - attractive dog, or a dog too old, or a puppy that just does not have that "cute" factor.
Some dogs are "so ugly they are cute." Some dogs have funky ears, or a missing tail, strange coloring, or some aesthetic faux pas (or is it faux paw?), meaning they are passed up for the cute 'n' cuddly or perfect purebreds. We can call the dogs that are passed up "quirky" or "unusual' or, sometimes, "just plain ugly."
Here you will find the above types of dogs up for adoption in the Nashville, Tennessee area. They may not be a cute bundle of fluff or a prized show dog, but they will love you and be a forever friend. This makes them perfect.
All dogs shown are up to date on shots and neutered. Some have microchips. Call the individual agency listed for more information. Always adopt from an established agency; the money you spend goes back into animal rescue. Rescue people will tell you an adopted pet is a great pet!
