Tillie came to the Gardens unable to use her back legs due to a life in a small crate being used for breeding. After a couple of months and a whole lotta love and exercise she can run with the best of them! She is such a sweetie and loves cuddling up in your lap (give her a minute to fit — she is a standard size doxie…) She is almost always on the move nowadays following her friends around, but eventually she takes advantage of her retirement with a nice long nap. She does have heart problems which she takes medication for, and the medicine does cause her to need to potty more frequently, but her company is very much worth some puddles in the kitchen every now and then.

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.
