M - 10+ - Lab/Hound Mix
Winston was found wandering around Greenville, TN and was exhausted when he came here. He was a little overwhelmed with all the other dogs, so we kept him separated so he could sleep and learn that he was finally safe, and that he didn’t have to keep running. In the last few days, Winston has become more active and has started playing with Holston, his new best friend. They’ve been playing well into the evenings, where they then snuggle together. He gets along well with other dogs, and even though he’s a senior he has that playful puppy in him.
M - 1ish - Beagle/Chihuahua probably
Beetle’s a young and silly dude who loves attention. He’s just small enough to pick up and slow dance with, but big enough to be a great walking companion or hound-about-town. He’d fit in great at the brewpub, could charm the nail techs at your weekly appointment, or, he’d love to ride shotgun on your grunt while you do farm chores. This guy is people oriented, cuddly, and gets along great with other dogs. If you’d prefer a smaller dog (25-ish lbs), Beetle's your guy.
M - 5ish - Beagle
He’s a 12inch Beagle with a 10 foot personality. Grab your fishing pole and get ready for a wild ride with O’Neal! O’Neal was found at lake O’Neal and he’s been keeping it REEL since 1969’. He thinks he’s a fish and not a dog. Retired from lake life, caught in a catch-22, he would make a great distraction for your wife so you can go fishing. He prefers to live life by his rules, but he’ll settle watching “Deadliest Catch” on the couch with you. That must be where he learned his survival skills! Don’t you want to expand your fishing skills from reality TV with a beagle buddy who has no idea how little he is?
M - 10ish - Majestic hound
Dudley, a.k.a. the Doode. He's as smooth as your Grampa after smoking Blacks and drinking High Lifes for the past 50 years. He trades his monthly scripts to the trap hoes for "favors," gives zero fuxks, and will make everyone super uncomfortable at your work x-mas party while handing out gift certificates from 7-11. They don't make 'em like Dudley anymore. 70+ YO, neutered, and UTD. Gets along well with others...especially females that give him long hugs.
F - 7ish - Bluetick
Sweets is an odd character. She reminds us of Velma from Scooby Doo. Kinda nerdy, kinda hot. We don't know what to think about her. She's playful with the other dogs and loves seeking attention. Just like Velma she will watch you from a corner and try to figure out the mystery of when is dinner time.
F - 3ish - Tri-Color American English
When Maribelle is not burning down the patriarchy, she’s busy writing viral affirmation memes. Maribelle is SO smart and intuitive – her focus is off the charts. She’s a rescue sent our way by Tia from Pit Bulls and Parolees who described her as “one of the most brilliant dogs I have ever encountered.” Unlike a lot of rescue hounds, she doesn’t need help in the confidence department – but she’ll help you with yours. “You did not wake up today to be average! You are amazing! Your ass looks GOOD!” If you need your own personal life coach, adopt this rad bitch and conquer the world together.
M - 1ish - Beagle/Chihuahua probably
Skeeter’s kind of a jerk, so we’ve got a love-hate relationship going. He’s funny as hell and gets wild and playful, but then high tails it outta there when things get a little too hot. He’s small (25-ish lbs) and outgoing. You remember that guy in highschool who was always talking trash but threw the best keggers? That’s Skeeter. His trash can punch brings all the gasser fans out. More of an F1 person? He can make it a little fancier for ya. If you love a lil’ troublemaker, adopt this guy.
F - 2ish - Redtick/American English
Olivia is so darn sweet, she’ll meet you once and be hopelessly devoted. She can be timid and demure, but get her going with a good wrestling session and she’s more fun than a slumber party full of teenage girls on a sugar high. Let’s get physical! This petite hound will scream with joy while she plays, but can simmer right down for snuggling when it’s time to watch Xanadu. So if you have to believe we are magic, Olivia is the one that you want...hoo, hoo, hooooo, honey.
F - 2ish - Grand Blue Gascon
This hound is someone’s ride or die. She’s that girl who can’t remember why she’s mad, but she’ll still pretend she’s got her reasons. Wondering if your last date was a psycho? She’ll let you know. Tires a little low on air? She coulda told you that 4 miles ago. Someone lookin’ at you sideways while you’re in line for ice cream? MIND YA BUSINESS, CHUMP. Twilight is here to take care of her person. She’s a little needy in the big misfit pack, but only ‘cause she knows she shouldn’t have to compete for love. She’s waiting on the one who’ll know she’s kin. Is it you? P.S. She will eat a cat, so no cats, OK?
F - 7ish- Black & Tan Coonhound
Charlotte was used as a puppy factory before she was found wandering around Georgia. All her front teeth are ground down to the gums from likely chewing on a pen for years. Thankfully, she doesn’t have to deal with any kids anymore and she’s ready to enjoy an empty nest kind of life. Charlotte hasn’t had a lot of positive human contact, so she’s shy at first, but if you stop petting her, she’ll nudge you for more attention. She’s learning that humans can be nice. Nothing but good things from here on out Charlotte. Sidenote - her sniffer works fine, she steals food off the dinner plates lol.
F - 2ish - Small Foxhound
You don’t have to go fast. You just have to keep going! Sweet little Maybelle was found in a parking lot in Florida dragging her back legs. She was brought to Tennessee just a few days later. While her road to recovery has been a bit bumpy, Maybelle is a fighter. And though she may be little, she is fierce. She's stronger than ever after her double amputation, will wrassle any dog in the place, is our resident champion of the bitey-face game, and she is ready to meet you!
M - 7ish - Grand Blue Gascon
Holston is 100-ish pounds of pure love. He’s that big guy everyone wants to be friends with because he’s chill as hell, too handsome for his own good, and he’s always got something fun going on. Affectionate and independent, he’ll be happy whether he’s by your side, exploring your house, your yard, or your snack stash. But you best keep an eye on him – if he can make it over your fence, he’ll be over at the neighbors’ telling them you don’t feed him enough. He’ll need a daily roll around with a big fluffy blanket or a sleeping bag, so have a few on hand before you bring him home. Then just sit back and laugh while he lets his freak flag fly.
M - 11ish - Treeing Walker/Foxhound mix
Burt, a.k.a. Deerty Beert. Old biker dude. Has at least three "Ride to Live" tattoos. Refers to his "Ol' Lady" frequently. Swears he was at Altamont. Reminds everyone at the dispensary that he remembers when weed was illegal. Snatches kisses and vice versa. Consider giving this old uneasy rider a forever home. His rough past doesn't define him.
F - 5ish - Black & Tan Coonhound
Bonnie LOVES the attention of men – in dog form and human form. She loves her hound boyfriend Zed and follows him around everywhere. Sadly, Zed has to have little, blue pills to keep her satisfied. We assume she was chained her whole life before coming here, due to her neck scarring and being confiscated from her owner for cruelty. She’s just like the veteran Misfits - she loves food and barks at us to hurry up and feed her.
F - 5ish - Black & Tan
Near, far, wherever you are…Kate’s heart does go on. While we usually only pull from shelters, this girl's story pulled at our heart strings. Her owner was terminally ill so the family signed her over to Misfit Hounds just hours before the coldest winter storm of the year. Kate spent most of her days chained up in the mud…but she'll be a priority instead of property for the rest of her life. She’s been with us a little while now, and her sweet and affectionate nature just shines. She loves, loves, LOVES dinnertime and breakfast and snack time. Adopt her and draw her like one of your French girls. She’s ready to drop this lifestyle like Rose let go of Jack!
F - 9ish - Bluetick
Daisy is everything you want in a hound - sassy, loyal, and a total cuddler. After she bit a kid in Reno (just to watch him cry) Daisy was sent to Misfit Hounds for parole. She takes heart meds for her middle-aged ticker, but can still keep up with the youngsters. If you’re having marital problems and want to seal the deal - Daisy can drive an actual wedge between you with her thick-ums body and "me before we" attitude.
Secret a.k.a. Cherry Poppins
F - 7ish - Redtick
Secret is the goofiest hound! Her family surrendered her to a shelter and her heart was broken...but she's been to ALL of her Misfit Hounds heartbreak therapy sessions, and she's fully recovered. She's very mellow, but has a mischievous side, and lights up when she's being praised. She is very sweet and gets along great with other dogs. A simple gal who craves attention and good snacks. Who doesn't? Right? She has come so, SO FAR and is ready for your love.
M - 10ish - Bloodhound mix
Poor Cooter was left abandoned by his previous owners when they moved. Cooter has good house manners, gets along with other dogs and loves people. He can be food possessive so a home without kids would be best for Cooter. This big bloodhound is super wrinkly and perfect for cuddles. If you've got patience and the skills to work with a resource guarder, he'll reward you with all the love and woo-woos you could ever want. Also, he loves puppies. Like, really loves them.
M - 10ish - Treeing Walker
Tackleberry’s an older gentleman who’s done running with the trigger-happy crowd. Now, instead of barking orders or bringing a bazooka to a tickle fight, he’d rather just lounge in the sun all day waiting on you to call him in for dinner. Easy going, and a bit of a loner, this guy’s the perfect senior to bring around your friends and family. He’s got military manners, and civilian charm – with a little southern smooth thrown in. He’d love to hear all about your passion for scrapbooking, WW2 documentaries, or 70s punk bands – he’s just that well rounded. And if you want a couch buddy for a marathon movie night (Police Academy 1-7) Tackleberry’s your hound.
Doc a.k.a. Muff Diver
M - 6ish - Treeing Walker
Doc bit a lady in the coochie and was gonna be killed. So we rescued him and sent him to sex rehab. He hasn’t bit anyone since and prefers to stand on his legs and gives hugs now. He’s a gorgeous lean, mean playful machine. He loves playing with the younger hounds here that are his size. He’d love a home with another dog and a loving family. Just as long as he can attend his sex addicts anonymous meetings.
M - 10ish - Bluetick
Want the perfect Bluetick? That's Smokey. This old hound just wants some human love, a bit of food, and a warm bed to snuggle on. Did we mention he's a handsome devil? He's the bad boy your momma always warned you about. He's handsome AF and will protect you during a bar fight, because he's the hot ass alpha dog.
Cheeze is healing up
Cheeze is healing up
M - 7ish - Brindle/Plott mix
Cheez arrived in pretty rough shape early this year, and we've been working to get him healthy. He's slowly gaining weight and some of his hair is coming back, but his progress is slow. His behavior is typical of a hound, though he's very protective of his food. We're hoping his bark is worse than his bite, but will keep evaluating him as he settles in. Poor guy had been on his own a long time, so who knows what he's been through. But -- he loves the misfit humans and is always up for any affection he can get! Hopefully, he'll realize no one's going to take his food away anymore. If you'd like to donate to help get Cheez healthy again -- click the "Donate" button up top.
F - 9ish - Treeing Walker/Foxhound mix
This sweet hound has had the lovesick blues since sowing a few too many wild oats with the Williams boys. She got caught gettin’ lovey dovey with the ghost of Hank Sr while listening to Hank III’s early punk stuff. Left some money on the dresser and split when she heard Hank IV had half a sandwich across town that needed finishing. Lost a toe sneaking off Hank Jr’s tour bus in ’78 but can still hotfoot her way into your heart. She woo-woos, she don’t crank, comes ready to snuggle you, your daddy, or your son, and will melt your cold, cold heart with her puppy dog eyes…just don’t bring up the Hanks…or her cheatin’ heart.
F - 11ish - Treeing Walker
Ever have a giant margarita fish bowl on spring break? Doozie is that type of buzz. Literally, her name is Doozie, ‘cause that resembles her personality. She’s a well-mannered and easy going senior, except when food is around… so if you’ve got older kids who get how to be cool around hounds, great. Young kids might lose a finger. Weighing in around 90 pounds, Doozie is a big-boned gal – so queue up the k.d. lang and sing her that song if you want to see her smile.
M - 2ish - Hound/Dane mix
Man child alert! One of the largest but youngest bachelors in the misfit pack, he’s a gentle giant that feeds off the energy around him so he'd do well in either a low-key home or one where he’s exercised regularly. Unlike his name, Butler doesn't want to serve you or do chores. The only thing he likes to clean up is your crumbs. He prefers to spend his days splashing on a splash pad, chasing butterflies, and eating cereal right out of the box while watching his favorite cartoons. Are you looking for a manchild of your very own? His bags are packed and he’s move-in ready!
F - 186ish - Treeing Walker

Bud will fit right in with your friends on the couch, if they're into the Grateful Dead or Phish.
M - 10ish - Foxhound

He might be a toe licker, we don’t judge, but Jed’s got people skills and he’s ready to show ‘em off.
F - 7ish - Treeing Walker - HW+
Charm came to us extremely overbred. She's very sweet, and always looks like she thinks she doesn't deserve the affection she gets. She loves to follow her foster mom around the house and play with the other dogs. She is a complete charmer and as sweet as pie. BUT - she doesn't like sharing her dog bed with the others. After a life of abuse, who would?
Also - she snores like a truck driver - how cute.
M - 4ish - Hound mix
