The Story of 'Miss Tennessee'

"Miss Tennessee," the unofficial ambassador of the Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society, looks very stylish in her favorite University of Tennessee sweater. She and many other pets are adoptable at the Society's Animal Shelter.

Sometimes a dog grabs our heart and won't let go. Miss Tennessee is one of those sweet dogs.

We think we may have jinxed her with the name we picked, but that is another story for another day. You football fans will understand that. 

This critter has not always been Miss Tennessee.

In early July of this year, she was just a number at Greene County Animal Control. At that time, she was #13711 and was a stray with no one to claim her.  

A volunteer brought her to the attention of Amy Bowman with the Greeneville- Greene County Humane Society. Without hesitation, Amy called Animal Control and told them she wanted to bring the little dog to the Adoption Center.

Miss Tennessee is about two years old and weighs less than 20 pounds. She has the face of a greyhound and the body of a Dachshund, making her a very interesting looking little girl.  

Miss Tennessee loves to play with other dogs, especially her kennel mate Winnie, who is also available for adoption. Miss Tennessee is great around cats and is always a hit with children and big people too!

Because of her great temperament, Miss Tennessee has accompanied Humane Society volunteers to a local nursing home on several occasions. She also recently attended the Gateway Ford fundraiser held for the Humane Society. 

Miss Tennessee is always on her best behavior, walks great on a leash and loves to wear sweaters, especially her Tennessee Vols sweater!

When Miss Tennessee first arrived at the Humane Society, everyone quickly fell in love with her and thought for sure she'd be adopted quickly!  However, days turned into weeks and weeks into months and still no adoption for this precious little dog.

Our Miss Tennessee is hoping that someone will read this story about her and want to take her home.

We invite you to come take Miss Tennessee for a walk at the Greeneville-Greene County Adoption Center, located at 950 Hal Henard Road, Greeneville. Hours are weekdays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
