Bagel, a Beagle/Basset mix, came to the gardens as a feral neighborhood dog. Used to a diet consisting of hot dogs thrown at him and probably trash, he was surprisingly chunky for someone who wasn’t eating three square meals a day, but now he is a slim, trim, baying machine! He has heart problems, and walks with a limp, but can get around easily, and likes taking a stroll in the yard. He is still quite shy after his rogue life, but if you feed him he will warm up to you pretty quickly.

Hi Forever Foster Parent(s)!
Our primary goal at OFSDS is to find lifelong placements for senior dogs where they can live the remainder of their lives as a part of a family. Most of our Old Friends that you see at the Sanctuary are available through our forever foster program.
Through sponsorships, donations and grants we will provide medical care and basic needs to the dogs living in our foster homes.
Fostering for OFSDS is different than fostering for other rescues in that we hope that our fosters will be “forever” homes for the remainder of their Old Friend’s life. Although adoption is not expected, we will sometimes allow our fosters to adopt dogs from us, however, all adoptions must start as Foster Families. Foster homes must be within 100 miles of Mount Juliet, TN.
Because our main goal is to place senior and un-adoptable dogs in safe, lifetime placements, we do not charge any fees.
