CrossFit Ktowners we have been called to action by Kate Brosnan! A great dog needs a great home. Let’s find the pup one!

SO precious!

Hello, dog lovers of CrossFit Ktown…

We need to find a loving forever home for my dog, Demi.  Jim and I adopted Demi in July, but over the course of the past three months we have noticed that she and our other dog, Molly, are not getting along very well.  As gut-wrenching as it is, we can no longer keep her.  She generally gets along with other dogs, and she is extremely comfortable around all humans and children.  Here are her stats:

We adopted her from the shelter in July 2010, where she was picked up as a stray.  She was approximately 1 yr old when we adopted her, so she is now approximately 15-16 months.  She is definitely a mixed breed, but looks mostly boxer.  She is about 37 pounds, spayed and micro-chipped.  She is up-to-date on all vaccinations, and has been on consistent flea/tick (Frontline Plus) and heartworm preventive meds (Interceptor).  She was given a clean bill of health by our vet, and we have noticed no health problems.

Demi has one of the sweetest personalities we’ve seen.  She loves to be loved, and she is extremely eager to please.  She has shown no aggression at all towards humans (we have observed excellent interactions with children) or to any other dog– we and our trainer feel that the conflict between Demi and Molly was related to dominance order.  We have learned that Demi likes to be “top dog,” so she is probably best suited for a one-dog household.  She is strong-willed, but just needs firm, confident human pack leaders.  She definitely respected my husband and me.

Scratch my belly please!

When we picked her up from shelter, she was not housebroken.  Now she is about 80% potty trained and crate-trained.  She spent the working hours in her crate, and slept there, as well.  She does best if her crate is in her own room, because she tends to bark to be released if she is crated in the same room you’re in.  She knows sit, stay, and she is doing very well with coming when called by name.  She also knows “Stop, sit,” which is useful in walks.  She is very treat-driven!  She is extremely intelligent and picks up commands quickly.  We took her to training and socialization classes at Appalachian K9 Training Center in Halls, with Sandy Pope.

Activity level:
Demi is very active, and needs a good amount of exercise (like the good little CrossFit Ktown dog she is).  She and Molly loved to play in the yard (our problems were in the house), and she loves going on long walks.  She likes to dart at squirrels when on a walk, but we walk both of our dogs on leashes with pinch collars, and she responds very well.

Extra bits of info:
Demi is not a chewer of furniture or other things, though she does enjoy chew toys, like Kongs or Nylabones.  She has short, fawn-colored fur but still sheds.  She doesn’t mind being bathed.  She likes to bark/whine at squirrels and passers-by, which is hard on the ears sometimes, but overall good for protection.  Otherwise, she does not bark for attention, unless she’s in her crate and you’re in the same room.

**She comes with a crate with detachable water bowl, bed, leash, training leash, collar, pinch collar (we used for walking), towels, toys, a few months of her Frontline Plus and Interceptor, food bowl, and food.

As you can tell, we love Demi so much, but needed to make the extremely tough decision to re-home her.  We wish we could keep her, but we just can’t.  She will make the right family extremely happy.  Please feel free to contact me with any and all questions: or 865-548-6477.

Kate and Jim Brosnan (6 am, in case you don’t know us :)

Demi says, "Please don't send me back to the shelter!"

    Having played with this dog several times [Ben, Rica & Hoolie can attest to this, too], Demi is an awesome dog. Kate was super honest about everything she wrote up in the description so what you see is what you will get… and she’s adorable.

    Diva, if you let me get that 30 acres of land so I can build The RU Ranch we can rescue all the dogs you want. Demi is a beautiful pup and I’m sure she will find a great home. I will post this here at work and keep my ears open for anyone looking for pup.

    RU Ranch? Isn’t that where Hey Dude was filmed?

  6. Coach CBo November 5, 2010 at 12:17 pm

    Holy Moly…if I had more time in my life then that dog would be mine. Or Dani’s. I’m still not sure how that possession thing works in an engagement.

    @T-Pain No, it was formally known as the Ponderosa where Ben Cartwright, Little Joe, and Hoss lived.

  8. Rachael the Diva November 5, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    @Rise Up…honey you can have the 30 acres of land for your RU Ranch as long as we are within 5 minutes of a mall :)

    Thank you everyone for your kind words!! Please forward to anyone who might be interested in my baby Demi. She’s even willing to switch from peanut to cashew butter to accommodate a Paleo lifestyle if her prospective parents are in the middle of the challenge :)
